Another Note About Groups...

A few times we have been getting messages bounced back to our system from a Google group saying that "we" don't have permission to post. If you are sending an invite to a Google or Yahoo group, be sure to send it from your email account, and that you have permission to post. When you send invites from our system, they are sent as "info@foodtidings.com", and may not be accepted.

Are You Using A Yahoo Or Google Group To Distribute Your Schedule Links?

A lot have people do. It's a great way to get the word out, especially if there is already a large community of people using the group. When using these services, you should be aware of the way they handle links in order to make sure everyone in the group can get to the schedule easily. Make sure you use the built in text editors when emailing/posting to the group.

Sometimes these services are not set up to allow linking text in the post/email. You will need to follow the instructions at whatever site you are on that will tell you how to insert a link in your post or email. Usually, this involves highlighting the pasted link from your foodtidings.com schedule, and clicking the "Link" icon (also called a URL)

If you have questions on how to insert links when posting to these types of services (or even in your email) consult their web sites help pages.

Don't forget to look at what other people are bringing to eat

When signing up for your meal date, try to take a couple of minutes and look over the other meals being provided by people. Anything & everything you make will be appreciated, but sometimes getting a similar chicken dish 4 days out of the week can be a bit overwhelming :-)
