Community Guidelines

We take Pride in the in keeping the Aussie BBQ forum a respectful, pleasant, and enjoyable for all our members Please read the following guidelines before posting.

Self-Promotion is Spam

All posts are read by our administration and moderation team. If we catch questionable content, it will immediately be edited or removed for futher investigation. Any post that is considered advertising for one's self-interests. If you wish to advertise please PM Paulr before doing so. There are specific forum sections for "advertisers" and we will be providing guidelines for usage of these sections.

While you are allowed to promote your web site(s) in your signature, you are not permitted to post links to sites you run or are in any way affiliated with in your posts without prior consent. In addition, users are not permitted to post any kind of affiliate program link with referrer IDs. Repeat violators who post promotional content will be permanently banned.

Language and Trolling

Our community is family-friendly. There are young users and language should be kept within a PG-13 level. Vulgar language is not allowed. This constitutes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material deemed unsafe for younger members. Inappropriate language will potentially be removed and users will be warned.

Do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling." Repeat violators will be permanently banned.

Lastly, if it is abundantly clear that a user has no intention of positively contributing to BBQ discussions, combined with an abrasive, combative attitude, they will be banned. Users must demonstrate an interest in contributing to BBQ discussions, as this is a BBQ site after all. In other words, users who wish to discuss topics other than BBQ or are not welcome as they do nothing to contribute to the site and are not worth the trouble and headaches.

Personal Attacks

In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result to attacks or insults. There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned and potentially banned.
This especcialy ascertains to the discussion of Gas vs Charcoal, anyone found badgering someone to change their style of cooking will be warned and potentially banned.

Moderators and Administrators Have the Final Word

If you have a problem or a complaint, direct it to the administrators and/or moderators, not to the boards.The appropriate actions will be taken. We reserve the right to ban flagrant offenders when deemed necessary, with or without prior warning.
DO NOT POST YOUR OPINION ON A POST BEING SPAM report the post and an administrator will ascertain this

Cross-Posting

If you have something to post and you're not sure which board it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion.
You can report a post and ask it to be moved if required

Signature Rules

A typical signature contains the poster's name, e-mail address, website, and a favorite quote or saying and a picture or 2. Excessive font size are not allowed. Anyone abusing this privilege will be warned and then have their signature removed until they acknowledge this guideline.

Multiple Accounts Per Individual Are Not Permitted

If you forget your password, use the password recovery tool, in which case you will be able to reset your password, given that you have access to the e-mail associated with your account. If you are still unable to login, contact the administrator.
