      Enhanced Reputation ("Like" and "Dislike") Functionality Here on CL   07/24/2017

      With the recent software upgrade, CL now has a slightly enhanced and more descriptive "reputation" functionality. The reputation is what CL members can click in the lower right corner of each posting (forums, blogs, calendar events, etc.) to indicate their "like' or "dislike" of that posting. This functionality, previously known as a member's "reputation", has been enhanced and is now known as a member's "reaction". Instead of having only two choices ("like" or "dislike", represented by a +1 or -1), there now are seven different "reactions" that a member can express, including the simple "Like" and "Dislike". As was the case previously with reputations, Administrators of this website cannot be given reputation/reaction, however Moderators can, just as all regular members can. Here in graphic form is the complete list of options in word and emoji form, along with the associated numeric value: The "Like" and the "Upvote" and the "Downvote" are essentially the same as the prior "like" and "dislike" reputation. Those are similar to what is available on some of the larger social media, such as Facebook. As in the past with reputation, the use of reactions is optional. Reputations (now "reactions") are not favored by everyone. Prior feedback indicates approximately 30% of CL's members prefer that "reputation" [and now "reactions"] be disabled. However, the majority of CL's members prefer having the ability to indicate their "like" or "dislike" of a posting. The new, enhanced functionality means simply that CL members have more granularity as to what they can indicate to the viewers. If anyone would like to see additional "reactions", please contact CL management, and include a short discussion of what you would like to see and perhaps an emoji to suggest that reaction. Two new reactions that have already been suggested are "I agree" and "I disagree", which might be expressed respectively with green check mark (or thumbs up) and red X-mark (or thumbs down) style emoji. The reactions functionality is currently configured to display who expressed that reaction. If there is sufficient feedback, we can hide the member's Display Name, and show only the cumulative reactions.           To provide general feedback or ask for help regarding Chiriqui.Life, please leave a posting in Problems, Feedback and Suggestions or email support@chiriqui.life or private message to @Admin_01.

New Item at PriceSmart

I've been making my own English muffins for a couple of years now using the recipe below. The process to make them takes a couple of days, letting the starter work and rising time, but your hands on time is minimal. They're better than any packaged English muffin and I estimate they cost less than a dollar for twelve. They also freeze wonderfully.

Thanks for the recipe, and thanks Sassy Blake for the notice about Price Smart muffins.

They also  have UNSALTED Mixed  Nuts!  A premium mix which is healthier and not as addicting as salted nuts.

Here are the responses from the buyers regarding the items you suggested:

 

 

Products previously tested and discontinued due to low demand (not planning on repeating)

·         Fresh Artichokes – due to low demand

·         Pepper Jack Cheese

 

 

English Muffins – the buyer says that the product PriceSmart offers is a higher quality than Thomas Muffins, which means that the top and bottom muffin are almost the same size and can be used for sandwiches.  Enjoy!  Please note that due to seasonal bakery products for the holiday season that we need to make room for, sometimes the English Muffins are temporarily inactive during Oct/Nov/Dec due to space constraints.

 

 

Marinated Artichokes – will be rotated in from time to time.  Will let you know if/when they are back in stock!

Thank you for bringing back English Muffins!  I always liked the Price Smart ones better than Thomas's.

Hard to believe there wasn't enough demand for pepper jack cheese. Everybody I know is wishing it would come back.

Deli Baru in Boquete usually has pepper jack.  The new Baru should have an even greater selection of cheeses.

Just to let you know PriceSmart has English Muffins!

The ones that Morts had last week were delicious - they even held over well to the next day. They said they were a new item because of their new "guest" baker.

For Sassy Blake: Would you please ask you contact to bring back the McCormick pure vanilla extract to the David store? It disappeared a LONG time ago. I myself will buy 10 bottles if I see it again, to be prepared for when it again disappears.

The spacesaver Dog Food Storage Bins are in stock today at Pricesmart, at least 7 of them. There were 8, but 1 went home with me to replace numerous 5 gallon buckets.

Large round Pet Beds are also in stock. Same price, $27.49

I saw them there three weeks ago, up near checkout. They seem a little pricey to me.

I originally thought the same Bonnie, but with us it's a space-saving, convenience issue. It fit in as part of a re-work of the laundry room.
