General Forum Rules
Spam, as we all know by now, is an unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or promotion of other websites, or non-relevant posts intended to promote something. This is the sort of Spam that cannot be cooked on an EGG - although the other kind can, and you will find some great recipes on the forum and at our website! Please do not spam or self-promote on this forum.
While we recognize that some forum members are also active as suppliers to the BGE community, we do insist that advertising and commercialism be kept in check. Please don't spam the forum with posts touting links intended to sell products, or attempt to self-promote your business or generate traffic to other websites or forums, etc. If this occurs, your posts will be deleted and your account may be temporarily suspended or banned permanently. Spamming also includes unsolicited private messages or material sent to a large number of different users, so don't try that either. You will notice that we do not have any ads running on this Forum -- let’s keep it that way.
If a post requests information and you choose to respond, please be vigilant about protecting your identity online as BGE makes no warranties about privacy or any of the content or postings on this forum, and does not assume any liability related to the postings on this site. A posting asking for your name, address, driver’s license or social security number in order to send you a recipe is probably bogus. Please see Disclaimer for additional information.
Do not post solicitations for “Free” offers and similar threads. Posting pyramid scams (such as offers for free iPods, CDs etc.) is forbidden. All such posts will be deleted, and any users posting this type of content in their post or signature may be temporarily suspended or banned permanently.
Do not post copyright protected material – any image or photo taken by someone else may be copyright protected, so please don't upload, attach or otherwise post any material, image or photo which you do not have permission to redistribute. If you have any questions about having permission to post or attach a specific item, you should check with the owner or source of the image (not with BGE) before posting it.
We reserve the right to remove any material that is inappropriate or which appears to infringe on the rights of others or appears to violate copyright laws. Please be aware that finding an image online may not necessarily grant you the right to post it or make use of it in any fashion – please keep this forum free of images that you do not have permission to use or that could be considered offensive in any way. By uploading a file you certify that you have the right to distribute the image.
About Avatars: Only JPG, PNG or GIF - no .bmp files. While the system will resize an image to fit, please keep avatar images less than 1MB. The size limit on avatars is 250W X 235H. If we receive complaints that an avatar is offensive, it may be removed. Any users posting offensive content may be denied the ability to use avatars, or temporarily suspended or banned permanently if the situation is repetitive.
About Photos: The system will not accept photos or images larger than 2MB. While the system will resize an image to fit, please try to limit the size of images to less than 1MB. Only JPG, PNG or GIF files.
BGE makes no representations or warranties as to the accuracy, correctness or reliability of any photographs posted on this website, nor does BGE ensure that any persons depicted in photographs have consented to the display of their image on this website. If your photograph or any image for which you are the copyright holder appears on this website without your consent and you wish to have it removed, please copy the thumbnail image and e-mail it to forumabuse -at- biggreenegg - dot com with a description of why you would like it removed.
Copyrights to any posted photographs are retained by the creator, and BGE makes no claim of ownership to any images uploaded. It is the sole responsibility of any poster to ensure that they have the necessary authorizations and/or permissions to use the images. We reserve the right to remove any image, drawing, illustration, photograph or rendition thereof at any time.
This forum is about food, cooking, having fun with your EGG and similar topics ... please don’t post links or images or create posts that are irrelevant for the purpose of this forum, which includes insulting, offensive, racist, sexist, political, discriminatory, obscene or vulgar remarks or any post which may be found to be in violation of any law or ordinance. This includes posts on topics which have nothing to do with enjoying a Big Green Egg, or which are polarizing or inflammatory in nature. If you do any of this, we will of course delete the post and call upon the Buffalo to determine the extent of your suspension or permanent ban.
Please make the effort to be respectful of other users, moderators and administrators at all times. We are talking about the BIG GREEN EGG after all, so don’t be a troll -- lighten up and have some fun!
You have every right to disagree with fellow forum members and explain your perspective, however, thou shall not get combative or attack, degrade, insult or otherwise belittle fellow posters or the forum staff or the quality of this community. It does not matter what stature you think you hold in these forums, you are expected to maintain decorum and play nice. The Buffalo is ever vigilant, and doing otherwise will get your account suspended temporarily … or permanently if the situation is blatant or repetitive.
Above all, this is not a gathering place for insults – if you can’t keep it upbeat, at least be neutral – if you have to be snarky, please post elsewhere. Please do not use the forum to engage in product bashing – ours or others – as that is not the purpose of this online community either. Please do not post unsubstantiated opinions claiming knowledge of the business operations of BGE, because they are usually inaccurate and serve no purpose on this forum. Posts like these may be removed. If you have a legitimate question or concern, please email it to our Customer Support team (info at BGE website) or come visit with any of us at EGGtoberfest – we are always happy to chat about our favorite pastime too!
If you would like to make us aware of a violation concerning post activity, please email forumabuse - at - biggreenegg dot com. This forumabuse email address is a no reply address so please don’t expect a response or use it for requests for customer support or anything else.
