    The most popular challenges were in the early years.  What can we do to increase the participation now?  Anyone have any suggestions?

    Ehhh depends on your metric. January 2016 had 300+ replies. If you count views, of course older threads have more clicks over time.

    Also I would guess the site has more concurrent active topics at any given time to split peoples attention

    In the earlier challenges a lot of people posted "old" dishes.
    Now it is only dishes made in the month of the challenge, which I think is a big improvement.
    I like these challenges as they make me try different styles and techniques.

    I just read back through the entire "Fish Challenge" thread and honestly that is the best example of the true beauty of this little website I think anyone could find. It illustrates everything that is good and right with the community; encouragement, questioning, support, passion etc. That was one heck of a month.. @Nicko even came out of his shell and posted multiple entries!

    Two years later - in a world that seems to be spinning out of control, I had tears in my eyes re-reading some of the exchanges that took place that month. I am very proud of all of you, and even if only through the digital world I consider you all friends and kindred spirits.

    @eastshores  I forgot that I made the smoked salmon for the fish challenge that was a good topic. Thanks for the kind words about ChefTalk.com
