Welcome All - Forum Rules

Thanks for participating in this sustainability forum. This is where we can exchange ideas and best practice on a range of topics from solar energy to where to even start with designing an off-grid living solution.

We provide the Recover Eden Sustainability Forum as a service to its users, customers and partners, to help them exchange ideas, tips, information, and techniques related to sustainable living. The Recover Eden community is here for the enjoyment and benefit of all members and are accessible to all who register. Like any community, Recover Eden is most valuable when everyone obeys certain basic guidelines and rules for online behavior. These guidelines and rules are presented here so that you know what is expected of you and what you can expect from other participants when using Recover Eden.


We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to:

  • Edit and/or remove any post containing or linking to material in violation of these Terms and Conditions.
  • Disable the membership of any user who violates these Terms and Conditions.
  • If you have any doubts about whether your post or link may violate these rules, please ask a Recover Eden moderator before posting.


  • General questions about the Recover Eden community should be posted in Recover Eden Community Help.
  • Questions or concerns regarding actions taken by any user MUST be directed to a Recover Eden moderator via private Direct Message (DM) or e-mail ONLY. Comments or discussions which belong in Moderation that instead appear on public spaces will be removed.


Keep it relevant

For everyone's benefit please stay on topic. No "test" posts, please. If you want to test the features of the platform, ask a real question! Recover Eden is specifically provided to allow users to help each other in exchanging information and ideas or product recommendations. Commercial users should refrain from posting in the public ideas-exchange forums. Please refrain from abusing any company or product.

Keep it courteous

Everyone wants to have a positive experience while on Recover Eden - please make sure that you are not detracting from any other user's experience. In particular, please refrain from posting anything unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, profane, pornographic, indecent, lewd, harassing, threatening, harmful, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable or injurious to third parties.

Your opinions are always welcome, but personal attacks and harassment ("flaming") in either Recover Eden forums or through messaging are not acceptable.

Keep it clear

Please communicate clearly so everyone may understand. Avoid using slang, "net speak" or any other wording which might be difficult for all users to understand.  We are a diverse community and seek to provide a comfortable environment where you can get help from other users like yourself.  This can only happen if we can understand each other.

Be careful - your personal information

When registering for the community, your full name (first and last) will be visible to other registered community members. If you do not want your name to be visible, please plan reset your default privacy settings for your Name to > Yourself. You should not post other personal information publicly on the community including your address, age, phone number, or Social Security Number.  Most people in the community are happy to help out, but remember that their advice is theirs only and that you are responsible for deciding whether or not to follow it. If the advice given by a user sounds wrong to you, do not try it.


Community Moderators & Specialists

From time-to-time Recover Eden may designate certain community members as Community Moderators, or other valued member.  This designation does not create an employee or agency relationship between Recover Eden and this member, nor does it make this member a Recover Eden spokesperson.  Instead, the designation allows the community to know which members have been helpful, have provided constructive advice and have set a positive example and tone for Recover Eden.  Like any information posted on our forums, the opinions and advice provided by these members are their own.  This content is the sole responsibility of the Community Moderator or other valued member, and anything stated in the Terms and Conditions applies to the content posted by these members.
