|Discuss Cooking Community Rules
Registering and participating at discusscooking.com constitutes agreement to abide by the Social Knowledge Network Terms of Service (Social Knowledge is the company that owns this forum). We reserve the right to modify these rules at any time without giving prior notice to you.
There is no charge for joining this Forum! The goal of Discuss Cooking.com is to provide a friendly and informative place for people to share info, meet fellow foodies, help each other with cooking related issues, post personal experiences and spend some time with like-minded people. Our forum is intended to reflect our passion for cooking, that is why it exists. Please respect your fellow Discuss Cooking members online just as you would if you were a guest at their table.
Please think before you post and keep your comments limited to the topic at hand and above all be nice. If you come across any violations to these guidelines or have any problems navigating the site, do not hesitate to let us know through the Report Post function or the Forums Contact Form. We'll be happy to address your concerns.
We aim to ensure that the forum is an enjoyable place that you want to visit time and time again. Our philosophy is that we want Discuss Cooking to be an online reflection of the family kitchen.
How to Post a Recipe
You cannot legally post an entire recipe written or published by another. Ingredient lists are fine to copy word for word, but methods written by another cannot be reproduced here.
Signatures must be setup in your profile rather than manually added to your messages. They will appear at the bottom of every post you make.
This forum is not intended to be a mechanism for people to vent frustrations about vendors or sales from private parties. Please settle your differences with the seller, manufacturer and dealer through other means but not through our community.
About the First Amendment and your "right to free speech"
We believe in public freedom of speech but that right does not imply that others have to publish your speech. The forum is not a public resource; it is privately owned and we require members to abide by our rules and by the decisions of our staff. If you cannot accept these guidelines your post may be edited or deleted, this does not violate your right to Free Speech.
Site Management & Member Concerns
If we feel site rules are violated we may remove, edit or delete posts and if necessary ban or restrict account access. If a moderator deletes or edits one of your posts and you disagree with the action, contact the moderator concerned or any other member of our site team. Do not repost deleted material. This forum is largely self-policing, which means that moderators will respond and react to problems reported through the REPORT POST option, via the CONTACT FORM at the bottom of each page, or via PM. Do not hesitate to use these tools to report any problems regarding the forum.
Requests for changes to your account should be made by using the Contact Us link at the bottom of every forum page.
Participants may only have one account. Moderators may consolidate or delete multiple accounts.
We may remove accounts that have no posts. If the account has many posts, completely deleting the account can significantly disrupt thread continuity. In that event, we may (if requested and at our discretion) disable your account in some or all of the following ways: Change the user name, remove signature content, subscriptions, avatar and any info from the profile that might be identifying or replace it with fictitious info, change account options to refuse contact and ban account. Where communication features were used to share information with other individuals (e.g., sending a personal message to another Forum user) we generally cannot remove content. If someone quoted your post, the original user name will be shown as having been quoted (which we cannot purge).
Someone has to interpret the above guidelines and how they apply to this forum. Ultimately it's up to our site staff to make this decision. If you have any questions about these guidelines, please feel free to contact us.
