Get rid of this crap by registering your own SA Forums Account and joining roughly 150,000 Goons, for the one-time price of $9.95! We charge money because it costs us money per month for bills, and since we don't believe in showing ads to our users, we try to make the money back through forum registrations.

Out here, everything hurts.

Welcome to Goons With Spoons!

GWS is dedicated to the discussion of cooking, food, beverages, and helping people learn to cook better. Please enjoy your time here, and try to keep these simple guidelines when posting.

  • All the usual SA forum rules apply here. Contributing something of worth when you post, occasionally punctuating, etc. are nice things to do, and we appreciate them.

  • Bigotry of any kind is not acceptable here. I don't care if you think you're being ironic or funny. This includes ableist, sexist, anti-trans, racist, homophobic, or any other kind of similar comments.

  • Keep it civil. Bluntness is fine, personal attacks are not.

  • In general, keep your feedback about others' cooking constructive. The best thing about GWS is all the people who've learned to cook better because of our forum. We want more people to learn, and they're more likely to stick around and learn something if we're nice.

  • Try to respond appropriately to criticism.

  • If you see something that you believe is in violation of the rules, hit the report button or PM me. Don't engage with it further and derail a thread. Similarly, don't dogpile on a poster.

  • You can use the report button for anything - not just bad posts. If you want a thread title changed, some other kind of edit, or if you feel a poster deserves praise, feel free to alert me via that button.

  • These rules are not exhaustive. If something is not explicitly against these rules but is against their spirit or causing harm to the community we've built here, expect moderation consequences.
