But forget to post the pictures and everyone jumps in/on.

Other forums (Non Food related) have a thank you button so if someone doesn't have anythign to say they can just leave a thanks.
See what happens when one veteran makes a comment?

Please post your pictures if you can.

I remember when I was new. I got the "No pic didn't happen", heck got one last month I believe. Any way I don't post pics all the time because I have'nt found the book for dummies called, "How to post PICS"! I'm a dummy when it comes to computer things, and since I don't post pic's all the time, I forgot how I done it last time, So it becomes a pain in my BUTT!

Do you boil your ribs in plain tap water or do you use bottled?

I've been kicking the same idea around, but it isn't over food pics, but pit rehabs.

I'm in the middle of repairing ANOTHER vintage Japanese "Hibachi Pot" Kamado and was thinking whether or not to take pics of the progress? Do I need to add it to my earlier Kamado Restoration thread or start another? Does anyone give a chit? Same with my Bandera, I got it up and running- Grant (seattlepitboss) welded up some grates for me and used it for a Mega cook, and I haven't had a cook big enough to warrant firing her up!

What frustrates me is when someone posts about a problem they might be having with their pit or a build and don't say what type or brand cooker it is they are using?

Pics would be helpful!

I am in CA, bottled water for duh!

I am with Brian on this, where images really matter is when people are asking for help, but, provide no information about what, how and where. Or a great job on something and there is no detail on what you are looking at or how it was done.

The moderating team has been discussing this privatly for a few days. It was THEY who looked at it from several different perspectives and brought it out. When i read some of their comments, i realized it wasn't just me and now we say something. I'd like to publicly throw some kudos at them for being proactive and not let this just fester silently.
Don't sweat it Phil !!!!

Our moderator union is putting the finishing touches on our collecting bargaining terms for our new contract.

Seriously - Pics or vids are always nice.. but we just want this forum to remain a place where everyone feels that can participate, regardless of experience, equipment or technology capabilities (that includes my crappy pics !!) without feeling they will be called out.

I am so glad I continued to read this thread, I was getting really confused for a while because for the first 2 or 3 pages there were no Pics and I wasn't sure this thread was really happening. Then I saw those HAMS and thankfully a short time later I saw that Pulled Pork which was a welcome relief.

Seriously, I'm new here and can honestly say this is the most happening BBQ blog on the net — pics or not. I had the privilege of meeting a few of you when Rick hosted a Mid Ohio Brethren Bash a while back and it was clear this goes well beyond bloggers with common interest. This is a family and I feel fortunate to have been welcomed in.

Thanks to everyone who makes this site happen!

I think people have contributed some great information and thoughts about this subject here; however, I have to say that there is one very appropriate use of "no pics/didn't happen" that we should all continue to use and will not hurt someone's feelings.....

When one of us totally messes up (drops a fully cooked butt in front of hungry dogs, etc) and posts about it then someone cheerfully adds, "no pics/didn't happen"
