    wave.gif Hey everyone! I'm an old timer too, and I submitted two recipes, one has shown up in the thread and one is lurking somewhere....it's been missing for 4 days. Liza is looking for it. I think the rules were set by the sponsors of the contest, not Food.com. But I certainly understand your frustration in not being able to enter.

    To be clear - I still mean what I said BUT I think Liza is fabulous! I'm guessing that the rest of the staff are as well. It's not about the staff that actually try to understand how important this site is to many. It's about the people making choices without considering us.

    I wish that the "powers that be" would ask the regulars on the site how we feel. This site is a large part of our daily lives and many, many hours are put into events, tag games, contests, etc. It means a lot to us personally.

    We celebrate births, weddings, new members, contest winners, good times and, unfortunately, hard times as well as the losses of some dear friends. I have traveled to meet some of my new friends and so have many others. We are a close community, even though we are scattered all over the globe. icon_smile.gif Cooking is a big part of all of our lives, but it goes much deeper than that.

    I'm very disappointed to see this site getting more and more frustrating to be on. I wish that so many chefs/friends had not left due to the frustration and disappointment. icon_sad.gif

    Change is fantastic if there's a good reason for it. To have the site continuously messed with, made less user-friendly and less fun to be on is heartbreaking.

    One of the chefs has spent years perfecting many wonderful events, including Ready, Set, Cook. Is she getting any credit for this competition? No. It is being masked as the same game but clearly it's not. The rules are very vague and there will be problems. If Reynold's wants to have a game like this, great! Let them! But to take it from someone who has worked SO hard and also not include a huge part of the site's members is just plain wrong.

    I am a fair person. I only speak my mind like this when I'm standing up for things I believe in. If I didn't have the amazing people on here who I consider to be friends, I can assure you that I wouldn't be here at all. I love my friends on here. It's not just a recipe site, it's part of our lives.

    I have entered the original version of this contest many times. I just saw that you have to live in the US to enter this copycat contest. There are a LOT of active food.com chefs who do not live in the States and I am one of them!

    Clearly, this contest isn't run by people who are active on the site. There's no structure or fairness to it and you won't include some integral members of the site. Shame.

    I'll just wait for Susie D. to do the "real" version of it. icon_wink.gif Monetary prize or not, she knows how to run things.

    Good luck to all of you who are allowed to enter! icon_biggrin.gif I mean that!!!


    Hi Nif,

    Thanks for your feedback. Though I know I don't have the answer that you're looking for, I'm hoping that I can provide a little detail so you understand why the contests that we run are generally open only to residents of the United States.

    As you may have guessed, a lot of this comes down to the law and various legal issues. In the case of the United States, for example, we have to ensure that the contests comply with the rules of all 50 states, since each state can and often does have different regulations and requirements regarding contests and sweepstakes. Just to allow residents of the 50 United States to participate (not even including US territories), we have to assemble a team of lawyers to craft the official rules, which wind up containing 14 sections and span about 5 pages.

    Assuming that all things are equal, if we extrapolate the US requirements out across all 193 UN member countries, we'd end up with a 965 page rules document. In addition, we'd have to hire an army of lawyers, with at least someone who is proficient in the gaming, contest and sweepstakes laws of all 193 countries. (This also doesn’t into consideration that often times, as is the case of the US, these laws are set at a local/regional level — not on a national level.) We'd have to spend more money of hiring attorneys and legal researchers than we'd give away as prizes in 1,000 Ready, Set, Cook contests.

    Also, in this specific case, Reynolds Wrap is not available in every country of the world, which would make participation a challenge for many international visitors.

    One final legal consideration is that in the case of an international contest, if something were to go wrong, like having a dispute over prizing, etc., it'd be quite a great level of effort (and cost) just to figure out which country would have legal jurisdiction to resolve the matter.

    This article does a great job of summarizing some of the challenges facing contest and sweepstake holders, in case you're interested in some more detailed examples: http://www.howstuffworks.com/question541.htm.

    At the end of the day, we'd LOVE to have everyone participate. We really love having such a vibrant, international community of users and appreciate the value that you add to the conversation. We're always on the lookout for ways to create a more inclusive community and will continue to evaluate ways to make the contests more open in the future.

    Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts.

    Andrew

    (Sorry if this seems long-winded. I didn't want you think your comments were falling on deaf ears.)

    FWIW: Andrew really talks like this. : )

    Nif, I've been talking to Susie D and I know that this contest has turned into something different than her original community contest that she developed over the years...it's just the nature of the beast when something gets sponsored and morphed into a larger event. There is no way we could do some of the things Susie D does for you all in her community contests in the forums. We can't make the entries anonymous or regulate that users be a member for more than a few days. It's just not how it works on a larger scale. This isn't our first time doing this and it's not our last..this new type of contest is here to stay.

    If you don't like this type of contest, then please focus on all of Susie D's other great contests and enter those - there are so many! Please know that we hear you, but again, this is just how it is.

    And I appreciate my shout out...I think you're fabulous too!!

    Question,

    I have never cooked in foil. Is it usual to need to grease the foil for packets so that things don't stick?


    It depends on the recipe. If you have something that will stick, using olive oil or butter will make it less messy.

    Sue Leu's recipe looks different- came from a chef. Also, Can anyone review including people who just joined the day before instead of chefs who have been around for awhile??


    Which recipe/review are you referring to? I only see reviews on Breezermom and Chef #1519638's recipes. Thanks!

    On your last contest Simply Potatoes there was a pattern where newbies joined and submitted recipes or wrote reviews almost the same day as they joined. So my question is -- is that okay? I guess you think so. It seems like the focus should be on rewarding chefs who have donated their time to making this site what it is.

    We need to move on. This thread is for Q&A about the nuts and bolts of the contest, can we please keep it on topic?

    If you feel you need to discuss this further, feel free to start a new thread, but this isn't helping new users get the info they need to enter the contest.

    If we don't keep it on topic, i'll just start deleting posts, sorry to say.

    Just a friendly reminder, we are half way though the contest.

    Please let me know if you have questions. icon_biggrin.gif
