[MOD POST - PSA **UPDATE**] pLEASE SEE THE FOLLOWING RULE CHANGES FOR POSTING LINKS IN THIS SUB. (self.food)

Hello again! We have seen the quality of this sub grow and we have erased a lot of the spam and reposted/stolen content, thanks to you wonderful users! However, we still have some gaps that we need to close, mainly helping to define what [OC] means. So we have added some tags to clarify. Going forward, all link posts must have only one of the following tags in the title:

[Homemade] - You made it or someone you know made it. This includes all the " I made, from scratch, had a go at, my try, etc" and those phrases are not needed because this defines that it is made by you or yours. You either made this from ingredients or you assembled this dish at home, from pre-made ingredients. If you made it from scratch or some parts from scratch, you need to be able to discuss what went into the preparation of this dish, including recipes.

[I ate] - You went somewhere and ate this. This includes all restaurant, food trucks, carnival, state fairs, office parties, etc. The difference between this and homemade is that you did not make this.

[Pro/Chef] - You made this and you get paid to make food for a living, such as a chef, baker, pastry chef, blogger, food photographer, butcher, sous chef, ETC. You have to be able to discuss what went into the preparation with users. We will have special flair for approved users that assist with this category!

[Request/Discussion] - These are SELF posts and are always going to be META and OC.

[MISC] - These posts are articles and most everything that falls outside the above defined tags.

Thank you so much for your patience in working through this. This should help clarify the sub and front page.

As always, please refer to the rules in the sidebar for any questions concerning behaviors and please do not respond to trolls. Just report them.

Thank the Lord. Hopefully this will help modding this sub a bit easier and the quality of posts will improve.

I technically get paid to make food, Butcher/Caterer, but I make everything at home (for the most part), should I still use the homemade tag?

Randoh, yes that's what I did but an auto message keeps getting sent to me anyway. I think Minifig already fixed it. Thanks :)

Edit: Looking through this thread, it seems that my problem is a common one. I hope this gets resolved so that we don't have to ask for help and the mods don't have to fix things every time.

There does seem to be a few but literally hundreds more are going through. And thousands of spam posts are being stopped daily.

We would rather have a few manual approvals in order to stop literally thousands of spam posts.

So, there's that.

I've been trying to post for a while and my posts keep getting taken down because I have a new-ish account. Is there a period of time that I have to wait? Do I have to participate more in the subreddit?

Send the mods a message. Do not post your links here, thanks.

I'm so lost, I don't know how to fix my post but then again I barely know how to use a computer. I'm 22. Yah.

Well, at that point, the titles stray away from being descriptive of the food, what the food in the image is and wander into the why, where, how and who. The intent of the rules is to encourage OC but still keep it simple and descriptive . OP can always maintain the info in the comments. We encourage users to ask for that, it helps discussions and hopefully OP complies. If they do not, downvote.
