Housekeeping

A member e-mailed me saying he had been contacted by someone (NOT a ChocolateLife member) with a scam offer. This is one reason it's not a good idea to post your e-mail addresses in classifieds! If you have been contacted by someone with what appears to be a suspicious offer please send me all the details you can about the person who contacted you so I can do everything I can to take care of things promptly.

If you are having issues using the site (adding or editing content) it may be because you have not selected a member group (or quota). If you are having problems, please visit your profile, click the gear icon, select the most appropriate profile quota group and save the changes before contacting Clay. To post a blog, images, video, or events, you must do it from the profile navigation links on your profile.
