Please, PLEASE, let some of us who are good at data entry moderate the database.

There are 15 different entries for the same food, all with different calorie amounts. add a space on the submission form for a website and give some of us the ability to delete duplicate items from the database. I have resorted to finding the information on the company's website first before I try and log it because I have to find the correct one.

This would be a huge help in a ever increasing number of incorrect entries.

I agree the incorrect and duplicate entries are getting out of hand. I am getting very frustrated. Most of what I eat I have to check with the company website or double check with other calorie counting websites. Also users are confirming that entries are correct and they are not correct?? Now it's just getting to be very inaccurate and inconvenient. Someone needs to monitoring these entries.

I agree with all , its gets frustrating and nowhere to delete those wrong ones in the food selection Have stuff in there I no longer need or eat Would like to see the calorie count before I click on add checked to make sure its what I checked out on company website or other calorie sites.

This is getting very frustrating with having so many of the same food entries to select from. This needs to be monitored better so that there won't be so many.
Also the nutritional information is incorrect. If you look at the restaurant nutrition chart or the label on the food article they do not match so it throws off the calorie and nutrition calculations. So that means you have to take time to put all of the information in yourself. Whats the since in having the program for easy use if its incorrect.
Please help us we need better accuracy and stop all of the duplicating.

That's part of the problem. All the more reason to have some moderators.

Come on MFP! It sounds like there might be a lot of people willing to give some time to this effort.

I had some "cream of wheat" yesterday for breakfast. I couldn't believe the garbage that came up when I typed that in.

I know! It is frustrating! I was so confused where banana went...

I would agree that their should be someone(s) to moderate the database. I know I have had to add a duplicate item because the entry on a certain food is wrong, like 1/4 cup of raspberries does not have 15 grams of carbs.
It would be great if someone not only simplfied the database but also made sure the entries listed were correct.

Bump because this is one of the most needed of all the suggestions about MFP

I have resorted to putting all my foods into my recipe file. Even peanut butter. You have to have at least 2 ingredients for a recipe, but I just 1/2 the one serving of pb and BAM - it's a recipe called "peanut butter on a spoon". That way I have my calories, nutrients, and serving sized right. It saves a lot of time for things that I eat a LOT.

The database is out of control!
June 2, 2013 8:17 AM
I thought of another way of doing it.

Can we have an option to list foods in order of how many confirmations it has? That way all the stupid useless ones will sink to the bottom.

Also why has no one responded sad

I almost don't care what they do as long as they do something.

I just want to see some response (other than words) that indicates that they are active in maintaining and improving the website.

I have not seen any substantive change/improvement in the time I've been on here. It is very frustrating.

This is true although words would be something in the meantime ...

There've definitely been site changes since your Sept 2012 join date. All new integrations with partner sites, though that is for the apps as well.. November 2012 the ability to copy from a friends food diary on the website was added. 2 weeks ago there was a change made so when you load your food diary > add food page you can pick which of the 5 tabs it loads to... there are others that I can't place at the moment too but the website when they make a change they simply replace the old version of the page with the new one and other than in the case of speed-boosting ISPs who have cached local copies of the pages (shows up via improper appearance of the page) the next time you load the site you're using the new version.. .the apps they at least give us a summary of what the changes are prior to downloading the most recent version... apps you have to update.... website it's updated automatically and no summary of what has been changed. Makes it appear that "nothing" ever changes on the site.

There has been nothing that has substantially upgraded the functionality of the website as far as I can tell. I don't use any apps. My user website experience has not been improved. The "upgrades" you list are minor as far as I am concerned; they do not affect my experience. Maybe others feel differently.

Two of the biggest complaints from other users, not just me: 1. Ability to delete from all food lists and 2. the database sprawl have not been addressed.

The first should be trivial to address but they won't do it. The second I agree is more complicated.

Address those two issues and then I'll agree that there has been a substantial upgrade.

sadly, I do not trust the database on this site because of the inaccuracies. I always scan my food items or if it can't be scanned, (most veggies and fruit) I look it up on my own and add it as "quick add" calories.

I think it would be great if there were some database monitor. One of the things I really liked when I started was the variety. Or add a sort on the number of confirmations. It probably free up so much space it this was cleaned up.
