    4. Sometimes, you may find yourself a member of the this group, but yet unable to like, post or comment. If this happens to you, it is likely because you broke a minor rule here and a Moderator has ‘muted’ you.
      This is applicable for a maximum of 24 hours at a time and is automatically lifted. You do not have to mail, message or speak to anyone about it. You must however go read the rules so you know why it happened and how to avoid it going forward. [added, 5 Dec 2017]
    5. If you have been banned, please write to CaL Support, either mentioning why you were banned or acknowledging that a rule was broken which you may not be aware of. The former will result in nearly immediate reinstatement. The latter will result in  your being asked to attempt the rules quiz, in which you must score 20 or more points (out of 23) after which you will be immediately reinstated. Please note, no apologies, regrets etc are required – just acknowledgement and acceptance of the rules.

            Hello to the moderator,
            Was happy to see such a platform to share receipes amongst so many members… Looking at the posts early morning in london gave such sweet memories from india…. But unfortunately i cant see any more posts… I assume i have broken some rule which i was not aware off then and even now. Just feeling sad to have lost that lovely connection…
            Hope this resolves sometime soon.

  • keertthana

    yesterday mrng I woke up asusual to find some mouthwatering recipes from CAL. To my horror, I was terrified to find it missing.for nearly half a day I was searing through various names, thinking that the group name was changed or the group no longer existed.but what shocked me the most is when few minutes before I realised that I was blocked and I don’t know the reason. I just want to know if there is any procedure to join the group again.

  • Juliet

    I saw the group on facebook, and the about section says in bold to visit this page for forum rules and to paraphrase
    “These are implemented *very* strictly and we sincerely suggest you read them at the earliest to ensure a long, happy stay.”.

    But surprise, surprise… The forum rules are private and requires forced membership to the website. If that is so, you should declare openly on the group that membership is open only to registered users of the website. Why coerce people to register if your intention is just that forum rules be followed.

  • Sangeeta Chandra

    Sid Khullar….. how dare you call me moron. Don’t u know how to talk to a lady and have d guts to ban me for banning me frm ur group for breaking god knows which rule and then u ban me from messenger also. U don’t have decency to talk and u r not my boss and none at all have any right to call me moron. U better apologise to me or i m gonna sue u. Who gave u this right. God will punish u for being this arrogant one day. Ghamand aisa totega ki kahin ke nahi rahoge. U r not God.

  • Neera Dhawan

    Hi dear moderators

    It’s so commendable what you guys do and I can’t say that enough, Thanks for posting the link to the rules on CAL on Facebook.

    I just re-read the rules and found some new additions.

    I must congratulate you and the team to have provided us all with such comprehensive but easily comprehensible guidelines. I’m sincerely in awe of your efforts and amazing work of so many great chefs and people on CAL.

    Kudos to the entire team!

    Big hug and lots love to you guys! Stay blessed!

  • Akanksha Khandelwal

    How do i post my recipes here

  • :(

    Feeling bad & sad to read Sid sir’s post
    “So, please don’t write in begging and pleading to be allowed back in. Suck it up and deal with it.”….

    i am begging or requesting because i want to be a part of CAL and not to disturb you sir.

    Well no more mails now as its not working bcz its your group, your rules and your decision and i really respect.

    A very belated happy birthday to you Sid Sir, I wish god bless you with health wealth & progress in life.

    Bye bye CAL.

    • Anshu, it gives us no pleasure to ban people such. Requests to read the rules as well as links to the rules are mentioned in the dozens of warnings that the Mods post every single day as individual comments. The same is included in the group’s description as well, in addition a link to the rules present in the description text of every cover image. Despite this, less than 10% of members have taken the time to read the rules.

      We have therefore decided to permanently ban anyone, who breaks any rule. If we were to reinstate members based on apologies and promises of future behavior, we would need to do so for everyone and you will agree that does not promise to be a fruitful endeavor. I therefore suggest scouting for other groups, most of whom will not be as strict about the rules as we are, and of which hundreds exist.

      • :(

        Hello Sid Sir,
        I completely agree with you. I was only 20 days old on CAL so was not aware of all this. my all friends are on cal and they will help me to learn new things so need to join other groups. :)

        • :(

          ***my all friends are on cal and they will help me to learn new things so “no” need to join other groups. :)

      • ruchee

        But atleast gv us reason…

        • The reason is, you broke a rule. Now, if you didn’t have the courtesy to read the rules, I’m certainly not going to spend the time to let you know which one.

  • Ateek jain

    Hello sid ,
    you blocked me yesterday for posting non cal post. I know that I broke your rules but you have to warn me before blocking me.
    Now I know my mistake and apologies for that. I already contacted on moderator @chefatlarge. com but they refused my request. I am your member from many months. Now , it’s upto you to take appropriate action on your loyal members.

    • Breaking rules = permanent ban.
      Please consider joining the hundreds of other groups.

      • Ateek jain

        It’s already 2 months gone. Now please re invite me again. And I apologise for my inappropriate behaviour. I am missing CAL very much.
        Sid , please invite me back….

  • Zarsha Khan

    its my favorite page … i am learning many dishes with out any cost….everybody are chef by our self….

  • Shreematy Gopal

    In the highest courts of law, a’ criminal’ is at least allowed the kindness of being informed about the nature of his crime…are we , the exiles, not even deemed fit for that…??

    • Actually, the police do the charging and the courts decide if the charges are valid, with the defendant being allowed to defend themselves against said charges. That however is in a democracy, where the perception of power to the people exists. Chef at Large is not, as clearly stated in the rules, a democracy. Every member has a single opportunity to read the rules and adhere to them. If they do not do so, and consequently break the rules, they are permanently banned. Additionally, those who support rule breakers, by liking their comments or posts, are also permanently. Finally, as mentioned in the rules, we are not obliged to share details of why members were banned. Chef at Large is not a contractual service and has not consented to be treated as such.

  • Geetanjali

    I am a member of this group from a long time but more like a silent spectator, i love to read all the posts and sometimes contribute too if its useful to others. not being very active is hopefully not a reason for which i could be banned sometime in future….. Just curious kindly reply…

    • Read the rules please. If the rules are broken, you will be banned. Else, you’re alright. Again, *please* read the rules. Do not mail me later asking to be let back in etc.

  • :)

    Hello Banned Friends :)
    people do mistakes, when cal banned them we ask reasons, when they said you broke rules we said no we did not, then people beg. if they do no accept request people say bad for moderator & Sid Sir. Why don’t we accept our mistake and find another way to learn from Cal? Cal banned me but still learning many dishes daily from Cal by taking help of my friends and others. If we give positively it ill be back to us. Stop saying bad for people who is providing a good platform for beginners as well as cooking experts.

    • Please write to [email protected] with your FB profile name and link. Your account’s access will be reinstated.

    I had been removed from the group because i shared the video on the page, i apologise for this act and sir i requested to rejoin the group but got rejected, don’t know why??

    Seeking reply

    • We understand. However, all bans are permanent at this time. We suggest exploring the many hundreds of food groups out there with relaxed moderation.

      • Parminder Singh

        Thanks for the reply sir but i was really unwared about this, even i asked the members that can i post video related to food and beverage they said ‘yes’ but shouldn’t be offensive, and Sir i read the rule number 14 rejoining after ban it says that rejoining will range from 1week or more and the group is visible to me and shows join option to me
        Accept my apologies

        • We understand. However, all bans are permanent at this time. We suggest exploring the many hundreds of food groups out there with relaxed moderation.

          • Parminder Singh

            Thanks for immediate reply sir, and i just would like to thank you for running a very good group of great chefs, i learnt many recipes and techniques given by the members, i wish i could rejoin but this is my punishment, in last sorry for breaking the rule, accept apologies.

  • Hello Admin,
    May I know why I’m abandoned from Chef at Large? There must be some reason…. It’s very painful that I’m blocked from this group….. I don’t know why?….. I never use any slang language or never post any promotional links…. so please tell me the reason… I’ll be waiting for your reply….. Please do reply.

    • Thank you for writing in.

      If you are unable to access the group entirely, it is possible your profile’s access has been revoked for breaking one or more rules. As mentioned in the rules, moderators are not obliged to keep track of, intimate members of rule violations or let banned members know what rule they have broken. Members are expected to read the very simple set of rules and follow them in letter and spirit, failing which, they will be permanently banned.

      • Utsav Ray

        If I don’t get a warning, then how can I understand that I’m making a mistake. I have read all the rules, but honestly cannot figure out why I’m banned from this group. Still please accept my apology & please give me a chance & add me back. This is a very good platform for learning & I don’t want to miss that.

  • Mariyam Sameer maka

    M not a very active member but very religious follower of the group.. And really very upset after being banded from the group! Was in mist of migrating to a new country with a toddler and plus m pregnant I could not write earlier as I was banded in first week of May only! Since m such a naive in cooking this group was very good support n platform for me to learn! Will really appreciate if you add me back…. I have read rules but honestly cannot figure out why a silent follower like me would get ban may be I must have liked some inappropriate post m aware of all the rules but after all we are humans only to make unintational mistakes. I have never been warned also n was member since almost a year. Consider my good conduct and honesty n add me back!! ????

  • Kanza Fayaz

    can i know thw reason as to why am i banned from the group. I posted the recipe of carrot cake on the group and after that i have been removed and banned. Is this the way to treat newly added members…

    I want to know thw reason for such creulty

    • Because you’re a plagiarist.

      • VRINDA

        Chill …!

        Come on KHULLAR sir what do you mean by plagiarist there are so many recipes on internet available all the ingredients are same how do you say it’s copied do you have any proof to say it’s plagiarist arey ek group open karke logon ko pagal bana rahe ho … Vese bhi group ke log sab begginers hi hai just like home bakers and home makers not professional !

        Chalo i will tell you for example i read your magazine you post recipe on some pages the same recipe available on net phir jo recipe aap jo print kar rahe ho woh kya something new and innovative hai kya no baba nahi it’s also copied from some where right … Make your group rules friendly, easy going chaai se bhi rules kadak hai …

        Another example is it garima’s karachi biscuit is copyrighted no never and it’s not exact recipe too so many tried and so many posted picture and shared her recipe in same group why didn’t you block them now i tell you one chef aur food ke group mein matti se bana hua ganeshji ko kya lena dena so many unwanted wishes and it’s pics spam the group have you seen still they have been kept pending for block.

        More over do you run group by paying money to facebook sab free hai sirji kal ka kya haal kisiko nahi pata don’t make people to beg …

        Even after when people request you don’t add ab meri bhi boli kadak hai aap socho sirji socho ?

        If you strictly follow the rules don’t delete this comment reply on same page instead of sending me personal message never ignore such comments this will give bad impact to your brand name.

        I need valid reason with positive reply.

    Hi Sid Sir,

    Apologies for bothering you on messenger, I have learnt a lot from this group since past 1 year, being banned is I know it was my mistake. And I did take time to go through the rules when I joined. Since it was too long, I forgot where I had to write, wasn’t having access to my laptop so that I could fetch the email ID, tried taking from my CAL whatsapp friends, but I guess no one could help me, I should have waited for a few days to find the ID, but it was my mistake that I didn’t.

    If you feel that my banned is something good for the group, happy. :) But if you feel that my re-joining the group (with the assurance that the rules won’t be violated again) won’t do any harm to group, happiest. :D

    Please re-consider my request if possible.

        Hi Sid,

        I have been a member of this group for past one year and i am sure i didnt break any of the rules,i dont post much,i have never involved myself in any of the absurd posts or anything which is prohibited on this forum rules but from past two days I have been banned.
        I am a true follower of this group and believe it must be because of some misconception and this is the reason why i am writing it to you.
        Thanking you in anticipation


  • avani

    I don’t know for what reason I’m banned from CAL. One fine day I was waiting for few of my queries solutions and to my dismay I don’t find any updates, no notification history n then no group. I think one shud be informed bout the reason for getting banned. Anyways I would like to join back. Kindly do the needful. I have also sent the email but still no update.

    Dear Sid Sir,

    Warm Greetings,

    I made a mistake today and broke a rule of CAL by sharing a facebook video and making impolite comments which was not intentional. I did not read the rules well before. But now I very well understood them. Hence, I kindly request you to accept my apology once again. I already mailed the matter to moderators twice. Once again requesting u to please let me join back CAL.. I shall no more repeat the mistake again.

    Hope you give one more chance and add me back.

    Thank you in advance

    I am unable to rejoin CaL. Though I’ve received the membership reinstated mail. I’ve read the rules again but still can’t figure it out. Kindly help.


  • Hello Sid sir,
    I have been member of this group from almost 1 year. But from past few days I am not able to access the group. I far as I know I haven’t broken any rules. I am usually a silent spectator. I love this group. I don’t know what is the reason for ban. My profile picture? I don’t change my profile picture often and I don’t put my picture.
    I love this group and have learnt a lot from it. Please unblock me. It’s a request.

      This is the rules page. It might be a good idea to actually read the rules. They’re in the top half of this page. When you do so, you’ll find we have a support system. Please write in using the email address mentioned (yes, in the rules, above, on this page).

  • M Nadeem Javed

    plz approve my request to join your group

  • Henal Savla Gala

    I am unable to view the CAL Badge Network. What can be the reason?

    • sidkhullar

      The CaL Badge Network group only accepts those who have applied for the CaL badge, successfully implemented it and then been whitelisted.

      • Henal Savla Gala

        Sir, I have implemented the CAL Badge. Still waiting to be whitelisted. Please help me in this regard. Its a request.

        Name of the blog – The Veggiestan
        URL – theveggiestan.com

        • sidkhullar

          Somehow, most of you think that by saying, “It’s a request” or similar, I’m bound to do what you’re saying. You’ve been relentlessly harassing me on FB Messenger, breaking the rules by posting your blog to the group without being whitelisted, then harassing the moderators about your blog without following due process and now you’re doing the same thing here, despite my informing you on messenger, that your application will not be processed because you’re sending repeated pointless mails and refusing to read/follow the rules.

          I’m afraid you’re banned from Chef at Large, permanently.

        • sidkhullar

          Congratulations. You’re banned from CaL, LWN and from my personal profile too, in addition to the CaL Badge Network and our support facilities. Please consider this next time you choose to harass people to achieve your own selfish ends.

        • sidkhullar

          oh, and this commenting system too.

    How should I get the CAL Badge?
