How to Edit or Delete Your Own Content

Julia M. Usher
Hi, all, I've been receiving an unusually large number of questions about how members can edit or delete their own content. It's super important for you to know how to do this, as I typically do not edit posts for people, unless I happen to see a misclassified image or other typo. It can also take me several hours to days to respond to site inquiries like this, as I work several other jobs. That being said, your surest bet for getting a quick answer is to familiarize yourself with our site...Read More...

To Facebook or Not to Facebook?

Laegwen
Hi there! An idea is forming in my mind to make more of cookies than a mere hobby, and what I am after is giving classes.

But this approach requests that I get more commonly known to more people here in Germany. The first option to reach that goal would be a blog, but after spending several hours researching this topic I am now sure that I am neither skilled...Read More...
