I want to first thank daath for making this site possible. It’s great to have a community where DIY’ers can share and collaborate. And I also want to thank all of those who have made criticism and suggestions for my recipes. Some have really been helpful.
However, the point I want to make here is quite simple. Daath has made the recipe system (unless I’m missing something) so that if you post a recipe you have to uncheck the box to make it public. What a person has in their private collection is just that…private. But once you uncheck that box it’s out there for everyone to see. Personally, when I open something to the public that I have created I always put (SthrnMixer Original) in order to show this is my own creation. But then I see others post it without that tagline…so there’s no credit given. I think perhaps when I first started using ELR I may have done this myself without thinking about it…and I’ve tried to go through and make sure to fix them…but if anyone sees me with one of their original recipes posted without giving them credit by all means let me know and I’ll change it. Likewise I would like to get credit for my own creations…or rather don’t even post them as they are already there. Keep it private.
I don’t mean to stir up a hornet’s nest, rather I would love to see this community come together and be committed to always giving credit to the original source or those who have helped them. Nuff said
