tjosborne said:Agreed. Why post pics of cooks with my crappy $100 phone while others are posting with their $1000 Cannon? Or whatever they own. Nobody here cares anyhow unless you have a couple thousand posts.
@tjosborne, I totally disagree. Post count, per se, is irrelevant. I can't speak for everyone, but I'm pretty sure I represent the majority with what I am about to say.
I don't care who posts something. And I tend to not really care about the quality of the photography as long as I can get a handle on the quality of the cook when I read the post and look at the pics. A high post count might (and often does) represent someone who has been making regular contributions by posting many of their cooks, with pics, that allow others to learn from them. To many of us they become a trusted resource. In that regard they have some "street cred". At one point, when someone asked for brisket advice, Centex and I simultaneously gave him contradictory advice. He chose not to follow my recommendation and go with what Centex had said - even though I know my advice for his particular dilemma was better :) . I didn't pout about it, I just thought "Hmmm. If I were that guy, I'd probably do the same thing he did."
So please. Post away - with phone pics. Join in. Make regular contributions. Go to an eggfest and meet some of the great people on these boards in person. Or go to Salado and meet some of the other types. Your input will always be welcome as long as it is thoughtful and constructive, or even a little bit humorous.

1) Welcome aboard.
2) You must be a know associate of one of the more nefarious posters around these parts. Fess up now and it will save you a lot of headaches in the long run.:)
