Share: Community Guidelines

The community forums and tools are provided free of charge. By taking part in this community, you agree to the following guidelines:

NO INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT. Any unacceptable content (member names, posts, threads, images, or links containing profanity, sexually graphic content or offensive language) will be deleted. Participation in, suggesting or encouraging any illegal activity is cause for immediate deletion and suspension of community privileges, and may be reported to the appropriate authorities.

RESPECT FELLOW MEMBERS. Please respect and be civil to other members, even if you disagree with them. We will not tolerate abusive, harassing, threatening or racist behavior.

NO ADVERTISING. We do not allow posting of spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes, junk mail, commercial solicitation or advertising.

POSTING RECIPES. Any Taste of Home recipe, recipe photo or recipe link may be posted within Taste of Home's Community. Recipes and recipe images from other websites, forums or blogs may not be posted in the community forums unless written permission is received from the recipe owner or source. Recipes from other websites or blogs may be posted as links without permission if the original recipe copy and image are not included in the post. Recipes posted without permission can be deleted without warning or notice.

OBTAIN PERMISSION FOR COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL. Any recipes, blog posts, images, articles, news reports, or other copyrighted material included in the posts must be with the permission of the relevant copyright owners.

CARE FOR YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. These forums and groups are available to the public. Please do not post any personally identifiable information like address, phone number, or email address. As a general rule, do not post any information that you do not want made public.

USE GOOD JUDGMENT. Please keep in mind that other members may claim expertise or status (legal, medical, nutrition, etc.) that they do not, in fact, possess. Please use good judgment and discretion in following their advice. Always check with your doctor or nutritionist before modifying your diet. Recipes submitted by users are not tested by the Taste of Home Test Kitchens.

REPORT POSTS. Please help keep our community fun and valuable for all members. If you see posts, images or links that are in violation of our guidelines, please click on the "Report Abuse" link to notify our moderators can take appropriate action.

Taste of Home reserves the right to remove any material that does not (in our judgment) comply with these standards and to revoke posting privileges at our discretion and without warning or explanation. Our decisions are considered final. Please refer to our Terms & Conditions.
