Just a quick hello from a happy Keg 5000 user. I will do a post with some pics of some cooks later.

PS- If anyone was wondering about the lack of new members, it may be down to the process of joining. I had to re-register 3 times. I got the "Welcome to the Forum you are awaiting approval"  email each time, but getting the actual approval sorted was a mission,  I had to email OMC numerous times, then re-register for a final time and point out my forum name and email address so they could find it and approve it.

Welcome to the forum Jaunty.

Nice to hear the OMC is right on top of things in supporting new members that promote their product.   Huh Huh Angry Angry
They took over administrative duties from active members and have pretty much let the forum wilt.

Glad you finally were able to join us, looking forward to seeing some of your cooks

Glad you made it Jaunty!  Thanks for emailing me to figure that one out.  I definitely whiffed on one of the registrations, and once I delete a registration, I can't undo it.  (That would have been the easy part... but alas)

We're working up upgrades here, the photobucket takedown has really hamepered things.  Need to migrate the board to a different server and then start working on upgrades.

Hang in there.

But Rich, that's supposedly been happening for years now! When will this finally happen? Meanwhile fewer and fewer members remain active.

Welcome Jaunty! Glad to have you aboard!

Sorry you had a bad experience trying trying to join but glad you made it!

[Caj, bama, the other crap, while true is simply not helpful in a new user welcome reply.]

It's true we don't have many new members of late Jaunty but the keg is a spectacular kamado and if you learn how to use it you won't be disappointed with your purchase. Congrats!

Just agreeing with what the new member said Shawn.  If it's that much trouble to join a forum I appreciate Jaunty and applaud the courage for pointing out the problem in his first post.
Grateful that he took the time to keep trying instead of giving up as well as bringing the issue to light in his roll call post.

Welcome to the forum again Jaunty, looking forward to seeing your cooks.  As Rich pointed out many are having trouble posting pics thanks to Photobucket holding everyone for ransom.  If you need help posting pics check out this thread:

How about making this a sticky in "Forum technical support" ?
Or at least add it to the "How to direct link pictures" under Forum tech support ?
