  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

WTF: camping stoves/barbecue not allowed on the campgrounds?

How ridiculous is that? I've been to a lot of European festivals before and this is the first time I'm going to RF. Is this true? Or is this as realistic like the rule, that illegal drugs are forbidden on the festivalicon_lol.gif? This rule would definitely be in conflict with the environment-friendly approach of the festival since I (and all of my friends) would waste a whole lot of physical and mental energy dragging my food, equipment etc. to one of the agoras?

Fire safety. The camp gets very very crowded, and fires can spread fast.
Agoras are everywhere, so it's really not that much of a hassle, as it would be if everyone had open fires going on in their camps!
And this way it's all in one place, easier to clean up, etc. So it's not in conflict with being environment friendly at all. And it's more social icon_smile.gif

Just because everyone else is jumping off a cliff doesn't mean it's a brilliant idea.

Yes. It's only allowed in the designated area (in case you missed that part about there being special areas available and free to use maintained grills).

Failure to comply to the rule about not having camping stoves/grills on the camping grounds outside the designated areas will not earn you a warning, you will be thrown out immediately, and probably fined as well. Normal fine for such an offense is in the order of DKK10000 (€1335).

I will join the chorus and say that it is most definately NOT unbelievable.

I am actually quite satisfied with the fact that I do not have to risk burning to death during the festival because of a drunken BBQ-party that goes wrong - well, if only people are willing to walk maybe 300 meters to the nearest agora with their stuff...

If that is taking up too much of your mental and physical energy then you need to see a doctor. If you risk other peoples safety for your own comfort then there is something wrong with you.

Please follow this rule for everyones sake.

Did this seriously just happpen? Appealing to the enviroment as a reason you shouldn't have to carry maybe 2 kg of food and equibment some 100 metres?

This rule is so obvously a good one that I'm really happy about their zero tolerance policy here, I don't want to die in a fire for the sake of someones drunk midnight cooking.

It's getting more and more unbelievable. Are you guys from the fire department or why do you all get so dramatic? My question was already answered a couple of posts before. Although it doesn't make any sense to me I will follow your advices by heart as long as everybody else is doin it. Just the way Saturnus said:

Why not forbid smoking? You could light up a tent this way as well.
And by the way, this policy is definitely not common on all festivals. At least not to the ones I've been to (like Rock am Ring, Melt, Fusion, Sziget, Haltestelle Woodstock).

Is it that dramatic Not to want to die a fiery death? And a cigarette is far less dangerous because of it's size

Do you honestly not think that at camp stove using ethanol or gas isn't more dangerous then a cigaret?
And just because some festivals haven't realized the danger camp stoves potential are doesn't mean it is not dangerous.

Basic fire safety? A camping area like roskilde is chuck full of things that can burn and are light enough that they'll fly through the air on a small gust of wind, perfect conditions for a fire to spread wide and fast - in a area where at any given moment during the night several thousand people sleep their boozing off, and wont wake up for anything.

If I had to nominate one rule as the single most sensible thing, this would be near the top, and it's disturbing to see people yell 'unbelievable!' When told it's the rule.

Smoking is an entirely different level of danger.

Because it sounds like you really do not understand the danger. The unbelievable thing here is that you think that it is a stupid rule. It is absurd that you actually still try to make a point of telling us that this is stupid - that is why people are reacting this way.

And you are actually still trying to "talk it down" by asking a ridiculous question like that. It is NOT cool to say "fuck the rules, I'll do what I want"...it is so damn stupid of your to claim that it should be okay to put everyone around you in danger because you don't want to walk for a couple of minutes.

If you are danish then take a look at this article:

http://ekstrabladet.dk/112/article1191030.ece

This was what happened a couple of years ago. Fortunately there was only minor burn injuries the one of people in the tent. How would you feel like if you had caused that? Would it all still just be a joke to you? Would you still say to the people that blaimed you of this: "Are you guys from the fire department or what?"

Shit, I don't even know how to finish this post...I just really hope that you not only accept this as a rule, but also understands the importance of it. People can get really hurt and you just don't seem to give a shit about it. Now, THAT is unbelieveable...
