Moderator hat on:

Several posts have been removed from this thread. Please remember that this contest is intended to be FUN. Members may choose to participate or not as they like, but snarky comments and posts critical of others have no place here at Discuss Cooking. We are a community of folks who share a common interest in cooking; that does not however guarantee we will agree on all matters. We need to remember to treat each kindly which is why this statement is at the top of our site rules:

Quote:
Be Courteous! We aim to ensure that the forum is an enjoyable place that you want to visit time and time again. Treating each other with respect and kindness, and thinking before you speak will go a long way towards making this an enjoyable place. We take the "be nice" rule very seriously.
If you have specific concerns please contact a moderator or use the report post button. Let's focus on moving forward in a positive way; considering that the subject is CHOCOLATE that should be easy. Happy cooking!

I would like to add something here. A member contacted me last night saying they thought they might like to join in on the contest but with all that went on they weren't sure.

I hope that this person and others DO join in and return this to the fun exercise it was intended to be.

I agree- the more the merrier! Anyone considering joining in please disregard any disagreements, as it was just a simple misunderstanding, and hopefully does not reflect how things will go from here on.

LP, I would hope that we would be able to do this again sometime in the future as I would love to participate... I don't have the time for this challenge and to be perfectly honest with you, even if I did have the time I feel the same way as the member who PM'd you... It is very unfortunate but i'm hoping that we can try this once again...

XOXO Mimi

We all love to cook. It's in our nature, if at first we don't succeed, to learn from it, and enthusiastically try again.

I, for one, applaud everyone's passionate first effort at the GCC. And, am still looking forward to voting on or around the 12th.

Someone please clarify something. We need 5 courses, but no particular courses. Soups, salad, appetizer, hors d'oeuvres, first course, entree, sides, dessert, beverage, whatever. Just pick 5 things. Right?

Now I'M confused, I thought it was 3 courses (appy, main course and dessert) and a beverage.

I was going by this, which would be the 3 dishes with a beverage. I think we could use some more clarification. This is starting to get to be a lot.
