I have created a default food order. But please may I have a JDAW Style Welsh rarebit to start in place of the truffle mac & cheese. Gammon main.

Thank you.

Should we have a default default food order to cope with situations such as this?

Main: Boiled cabbage
Dessert: Boiled cabbage

Default please.

I thought one of the points of the default food thread was that the default order was taken as the order unless the individual actively and explicitly specifies something different? Kind of defeats the purpose if everyone needs to restate their default order every time does it not?

Sorry, out in the fields for too long. Hope not to have caused trouble.

Here is my food order:

Sirloin steak, blue, with skinny fries,
+ Green beans with shallots;

Something cheesy at the end?

Thanks

Agreed, though since the original request from Derek was to respond, not just to respond if you want different from default, I've followed that through on this occasion. If the outstanding people who hadn't replied all had a default defined I would probably have just used them and posted a "check this order" post instead.

Currently outstanding (no default specified): Tony and Wolfgang
Also outstanding (default assumed for now): Tom and Ian

Sorry, I hadn't thought of that protocol.

Perhaps this would be easier if the food orders were parameters in the placemats?

The defaults could be called automatically with the option to override.

We did have food in the placemats, but 7¾ years ago: see page 33 of 20101202_gbp15. It was a faff, and scrapped.

But there could be a Word file in the current format, with everybody’s default order in it.

Perhaps that Word file could be downloadable from the default order thread. And perhaps someone could offer to administer it as and when new or amended defaults are posted?

The first of those problems has been solved, although not with an up to date file.

The volunteer is welcome to send me the updated default file and I will upload it to the server, or to offer to host it elsewhere and I can edit the link.
