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 or someone. This sort of spam cannot be cooked on an EGG -
although the other kind can, and you will find some great recipes on the forum!
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 commercialism be kept in check. Please don't
spam the forum with posts touting links intended to sell products, or blatantly
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.
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 to send 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.
Do not post links or images or create posts that are irrelevant for the purpose
of the forum, which includes insulting, offensive, racist, sexist,
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 are
polarizing or inflammatory in nature. If you do any of this, we will of course
delete the post and ban you permanently.
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 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. Doing otherwise will get
your account suspended temporarily … or permanently if the situation is blatant
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
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.
