    Private submission #5FIX

    At the end of recipe entry form one can check,

    "I am choosing to submit a private recipe that I do not plan to make public. "
    If I check that option Will the recipe(s) still be judged for the #5FIX contest? Just not reviewed for the people's choice part?

    Thanks

    WOW copperskillet, that is one that I cannot answer. I'm texting with an "elf" now, so I will send her over to answer that for you.

    Sorry, none of my business icon_sad.gif

    Wow copperskillet, that's a very good question and one for which I do not
    have an answer. It's very odd for the two statements to be used together
    for one tick box.

    An elf will have to answer this tomorrow.

    As an aside, it makes sense that they want you to confirm that the recipe
    isn't already on the site, but it makes no sense to have a contest recipe
    stay private. I'm guessing that if it remains private, it will not be in the
    contest at all.

    My thoughts exactly. I'll just wait for the definitive explanation from elves in the AM .
    Private seemed better, since I'd never have enough "votes" to even get near the top for People's Choice. But there's still the main judging Contest and the random Sweepstakes.
    Thanks again, Rosie. Appreciate the fast turnaround.

    The recipe must be made PUBLIC to be viewed and rated by the public. A private recipe is just that. No one other than you can see it. Part of the contest is a judges review. If they can't see it you can't win. icon_wink.gif

    Sorry for the confusion. You should see only one submission button. The team is working to correct this issue.

    In the meantime, click the Save and Publish button.

    Thanks Susie D. I have no hope for People's Choice, not having an army of willing friends to vote, but am interested in Judges review and choice component. Why then would anyone keep recipe private??? Makes no sense to me, in less it's for a personal recipe collection.

    People in this community love to help out anyone (especially "Newbies). I'll try one of your recipes and rate it for you. You should join up in the "Pick A Chef" Event... That's where seasoned chefs can "adopt" you and make your dishes. Even tho I'm not a "Newbie" member on Food.com, I am in the "Preemie" category for that game, because I have only published 2 recipes on Food.com myself. Come play with us! LOL icon_smile.gif

    I probably have as many private recipes as I do public recipes.
    Some are recipes in progress while I tweak a recipe before a contest. Some are things I make often, but might be close to another recipe in the database and some are recipes I've found somewhere, but haven't tried yet myself. I like being able to have them one click away at a site I visit daily.

    Thanks again Rosie. You are very generous. I really couldn't have done it without all your help.

    Oh! Now I get it. Makes more sense. So, one can save, edit, then submit. Good to know.

    It works fantastic for regular recipes. The sponsored contests require using a special link, but if you already have the recipe saved as private you could easily copy/paste. I like having a chance to format it the way I want it.
