Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

OK, I've decided!

I hate it!!! Can't find some of my posts from last night, can't respond to an individual post, no signature function, the smiley face thingies don't work, I never know which forum is going to show up when I come to the site, the list goes on and on. Did I say I hate it? Hate it, hate it, hate it........
Please put it back like it was!!! This just ain't gonna work..........

    I can log on from iPhone but not work or home puter - poopoo

    I'll check back in a few days to see if bugs are being worked out.

    Shame - not being ugly, but I think sales will be affected.

    Thanks to the folks that maintained the former forum.

    i hate it too. wonder if anyone gave any thought to egg sales this time of year, the forum wont help the way it is, this change should maybe have happened gradually in the winter i would think

    Well, like it or hate it, it is probably here to stay. So far my main problem is, in the last two days I have sent four e-mails to the promotions@biggreenegg.com address asking for some help; absolutely no response so far. Doesn't exactly raise the bar very high for customer service

    Don't thing I'll be stopping by much if the new format remains. Seems a shame to destroy something that had been so much to so many for so long. Oh well, I guess this is progress is some persons eyes.

  • John,
    I'm with you .......hate, hate, hate.
    I think I'm just going to just sign off while I still have a lick of sanity left.
    WHAT A MESS. Nothing like the new guys coming in to "fix" that which doesn't need fixin'. Sure hope BGE management didn't pay to have this done. If they did, I'm concerned for what the future holds.

    Looks like I will be recommending Primo Grills since their forum is now superior.

  • I totally agree with the other posters, but know it won't do me a damn bit of good to cry about it.  I hate this format.  May as well be on facebook.

    This is bad.
    Wayne did they take it away from you?
    Can you take it back?
    Can we do anything?
    I don't want to even grill.
    I can only use my iPhone.

    Come on John, everybody hates it right now but maybe in a couple of years they will have worked the kinks out and it will once again appeal to us olde pharts.

    Like all things new, it ain't comfortable.  I just wish they had kept the old Forum up and running while they worked the kinks out of this one.  Apparently, they decided not to do that and don't plan to go back no matter how bad it is. 

    Let's just cool it (cool would be a wonderful thing here in Texas) and see what happens.  If we don't like it I'm sure someone among us will set up a comfortable site to switch to.

    Oh lookie, it's already 5:00 here at the Chicken Ranch.

    agree with most of the posts,, maybe I'll check in once a week or so but still not sure why because unless I want to lookup an old recipe it's useless. If you need me send a email because I'll never find something directed toward me here. I'm going over to Bobby's and maybe check out some of the other forums that I never cared for in the past. I think they may be a little more appealing now.

  • @hungryman You're most welcome... it's a sad day for WMK and myself... especially considering that the concept of the Eggfest, the Plate Setter, and a forum for BGE were all fruits from the fertile mind of Bill Miller.  Thank you Bill, and RIP.
