About events and news posted:

The Big Times Magazine cannot be held responsible for the reliability of
events, press releases or news posted or the actions and occurrences
during any events, press releases, or news posted here on the website. We
do not confirm submissions from promoters, public relations
representatives, or outside news sources, but simply provide postings as a
community service to our readers. All collaboration or verification of such
postings is the responsibility of the reader prior to relying on such
information for any action that may be taken on their behalf or on the
behalf of others.

We suggest you confirm the locations and line ups of promotions before
heading on out to any event we or others have posted on this site. We do
not advocate one promoter over another, and our "featured" events,
banners or "stickied" promotions are only those events that put our logo up
on their flyers, cross promoted The Big Times Magazine and supported
The Big Times Magazine, allowed for magazine distribution at their events,
allowed for press coverage by The Big Times Magazine staff, or have paid
for ads or to make their event "stickied" on the forums. In other words, the
promoters who support us and whom provide legitimate and
well-produced and safe events will see The Big Times Magazine's support
in return.

Troll: A troll is a person who posts inflammatory or controversial dialogue
on an internet forum simply to upset people in the forum community.
They often do not believe in what they are posting and often will hide
behind a special handle or false name or register on a forum for a one-time
post to solely to defame a person or a person's viewpoint. They post to
appease a vendetta they have with a person that they could not solve
intelligently or by honorable means and are usually very frustrated. They
also post about personal issues usually not related to the topic at hand.
