View Full Version : Members READ THIS!

We have a lot of new members who may have missed reading the rules of our forum, and additionally, it seems some of our blogging brothers need a reminder about linking.

In order to avoid our site from becoming nothing more than a web portal, heres a reminder of our guidelines to off site linking. If you see an imperative need to link elsewhere, simply post the article or text here, with due credit, and include the link to allow a member the option of linking offsite. Heres is an excerpt from Our Guidelines. (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14685)

Do not post links to other forums like ours(BBQ forums/chats) for the sake of promotion or for information that can easily be found within our forum(this excludes the links section). References within the forum to obvious forums of authority are allowed when referring to specific questions/requirements. (i.e. Virtual Weber Bullet, FoodTV, etc. ). We reserve the right to remove gratuitous references to competing forums.

For the Bloggers:
Please read this. (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?p=239182&highlight=posting#post239182)

So, this being said, moderators may edit or delete one line posts that contain only a link or a "go here" for things that are available onsite.

Thanks all..

Now back to regularly scheduled programming. :wink:
