I believe what ABETTRME means, is, "nothing happened & no response" = they didn't want to add you as coleader.

Their choice, yep; and also their loss.

Doesn't explain the missing posts, though.

This was a good team except for the MIA leaders. What a shame.

From my experience.....when someone clicks to be added as a leader(from the message thing)....you have 3 days for a response of some kind from the leader(s)....if you don't hear from them....it means that they turned down your offer to help. I was told this by Coach Jen.

Okay, something weird is definitely going on . . . checked the dehydrating thread and his Feb post is definitely GONE!!!! And I KNOW it was there before! HOW did that happen????????? I thought that was impossible!!!! So since that's impossible but happened, then the other MIA leaders' posts in early April, or maybe it was even Paul's in early April!, also may have disappeared.

Okay I am so over this . . . wasted way too much time on this. I'm done.

Loved the "Putting up with each other" line. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Paul posted in Feb dehydrator, remember; so that's since Jan.

But we are looking for a Mar/Apr posting, which is when the inactive leader notification disappeared.

I too, like Paul.

I am wondering if one of the inactive leaders "posted" a link, photo, or announcement; and then deleted it. Since we can't find the Mar/Apr post. I don't know if posting a link, photo, or announcement on the team page has the same effect (of removing the inactive leader message) and makes them active, or not. But I'm thinking it probably would. Just a thought I'm wondering outloud.

I know thread posts can be edited but not removed; so that just made me wonder about link, photo, or announcement posts, since they CAN be entirely deleted.

There are no links nor announcements on the team page . . .

Patti I decided to take back the crock pot team, as the "new" leader was MIA, inactive; I clicked on the links to add myself and she sent me a goodie, SparkFriended me, and posted a new thread so the inactive message went away. She didn't add me. Same thing as happened to you; you asked to be added and someone posted somewhere, even tho we can't find it which is really strange, to make the inactive notification go away. So I guess both you and I provoked our asleep leaders to wake up.

I'm wondering if the reason we can't find the post is because it was in March. I know it's not in April.

Anthea - good questions
I thought this warranted setting up a new thread for discussion of pressure canners
so I set it up under general discussion forum as
"Pressure Canners - resources & questions"

Hopefully we can get some good feedback there

Skipside, you are so good as this is exactly the information I wanted.

I guess there might not be enough people over here who are prepared to preserve vegetables and meat/fish etc as we have loads of recipes in magazines and papers for different fruit and pickles and so on but precious few for veg. I know the French and Belgian do a lot of vegetable preserving which is why you can always find the jars in supermarkets over there - whereas here we only have the fresh or frozen veg or imports from the Continent.

Does the pressure gauge on the canning machine actually show the temperature or is that in the book? And now of course I am wondering from where I can get one. If I am googlisng for it what exactly shoudlI google?

Keep well and happy.
xx Anthea

Anthea - You are right about the english speaking language divide. And it's not just between North America and Britain. I wonder if the spanish speakers have this same issue? they must.

anyway as to your 'translation' question:

When we take about canning here, we may be speaking about one of two methods

1) common canning = boiled-water canning = waterbath canning = what you call "bottling"
"recommended for high-acid and acidified foods such as fruits, soft-spreads, pickles, and tomatoes"

2) pressure canning = canning done in a big pan (big enough to hold all several jars on a rack inside) with a locking lid and either a weighted gauge or dial gauge = what you call (?) canning


We also have a smaller cooking pan called a pressure cooker that is like a saucepan with a locking lid and is just used for cooking up a meal. I have one but it's still in the box as I've never gotten up the nerve to try it out. I can't tell you much about it except to say I once saw someone use one to steam beets. (Long time ago but was the only time I tasted beets and didn't hate them) .

Pressure canner is much bigger but undoubtably works similarly.
"Pressure canner is the processing method recommended for low-acid foods such as vegetables, meats, poutlry, seafood, and some combination recipes combining low-acid & high-acid foods." because need to use temp greater than boiling point of water ;
using temp of approx. 240F=116C

Gemini Sky, I agree about all the excellent information buried in the threads and if they cannot be kept and accessed then a new team is not a good idea.

I would like your help as I'm suffering from being English and am not at all sure what you mean by "canning". I thought it meant what we call "bottling" when you heat treat stuff in a preserving jar either in the oven or in a water bath, and it seals when it cools but I was always told that, other than tomatoes which were really fruit, it was dangerous, without very special equipment, to preserve vegetables in this way. Is your canner something very special? Your mention of a gasket and possibilities of explosions makes me think it might be what we call a pressure cooker which I use for cooking stews and so on but that does not have any special temperature control - you just use different pressure weights; 5lbs, 10lbs or 15lbs.

Divided by a common language is what someone said about the English and Americans and it seems that this might be a case of this. I'd love to preserve vegetables other than in the freezer or making chutney or pickle especially when we have a glut of beans or beets so much look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks, Anthea

Good Morning and Glad you're back with us...
I do agree, No New Team...To much Good Info already here....
I know what you mean about an in person lesson. For years, I would not try a pressure canner til my friend had me come over her house and we did beets together.
It was so easy and fool proof that I went and bought one.
I got the All American (No Gasket type).
Now I do all kinds of veggies, fruits and this year, I want to try meats and soups.
Well, all I can say is, if you don't hear from me for awhile, maybe it Blew Up !!!!
Kidding !!!!!

Wow! I've ignored this thread in past weeks but finally got curious when it popped up on weekly digest again. Who knew it would be so interesting!

I guess I've not gotten into spark teams enough to understand what type of problem having inactive leaders creates. Most of the teams I've seen seem to ebb and flow, getting busy then quiet for a stretch and then wake up again. Even when leaders have been tied up elsewhere, members have managed to just jump in with threads and keep things going.
Well true except for the occasional team where the members just don't respond.... which definitely isn't the case here.
So I vote - go for it Gemini. You have the enthusiasm to do what is needed.

FYI, my viewpoint/interest here is:
I had the desire in the past but not the time to can/preserve much.
Now I have chances to do more so here I am.
I love reading the threads for recipe ideas AND considering my limited experience and total lack of in-person people to learn from I love all the tips and other tidbits buried here.
I'd just keep this team going rather than starting a new team and losing the wealth of info already here.

OK I sent an email to the SP Staff...

Hi SparkGuy and Team....
First I have to say, You Are ALL the BEST and Thank You So Much...
Second, I belong to a team called Putting Foods By. There are 3 team leaders and ALL are Totally Absent (2 since 2010). There was an Inactive Leader Note, so I requested to be the Leader/Co-Leader on April 2nd. If none of the leaders were to respond in 3 days, then I would have automatically been made Leader. Well, to date, non of the leaders have posted anything and the Inactive Leader note is gone !!!???
I did email one of the leaders so maybe that made him Active...Not sure.
We do have a Thread called " Where are Our Leaders?" and WE ALL WANT A LEADER !!!!
Here is the link to the thread...
www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
sa
geboardpost.asp

What can we do to get an Active Leader Short of starting a New Team which would be so silly...
There are many advantages to be a leader that are not accessable to a member,
Please Help and Thank You So Much.

Well, We'll see what this does for us....
You all have a Fab Weekend and I'll keep you posted....

Well, that's a thought....
I'm wondering if the fact that I sent Paul an email qued SP to think he was active????
Yesterday, I sent him a goodie with the same message that I emailed him...Maybe the email went into his Spam folder!
When I posted a comment on his page in January, he did reply.
Gosh, If they all left SP, then What ?????
I do have Chris Downie's email so I could contact his for direction...But I think I'll wait a bit.
NO FEARS...We'll Do This !!!!!

I couldn't find any posts in April, either - yes a real mystery. Very strange, indeed.

It's not good to make duplicate (or almost duplicate) teams. For one, you have to leave behind all the threads you've created and people have posted on, and many of those threads we don't want to leave. There are some very good threads here. The MIA leader who mysteriously posted, just needs to man up and add Patti as a co-leader.

Just a thought, but can you not start up a new team called - say - Putting Food By Revived and then we can all join that/ Those who are inactive wont mind and those who want a team will have one. Or is this un-Sparklike?

Patti you said on 4/7 it'd been 5 days, but the Inactive message is gone. So sometime between 4/2 and 4/7, one of the 3 MIA leaders posted. I see a post from Paul in Feb on the dehydrating thread. However, we are looking for a post in April.

Patti, I just checked the team page, the "Inactive Team Leader" message is gone. This means you can't request to add yourself as a team leader. You have to look through all the threads, find the team leader that made themselves active, and then request that one to add you (like you requested Paul to add you). If they agree, they will send you an invitation through SparkPeople, to become a team leader.

Team leaders who are inactive, probably aren't reading their SparkMail. So you have to do some research, to find the "active" one, and speak with them.

No Not yet and no word from Paul either.
I realy don't think we need a leader but it would be nice to have access to email blasts to the team, setting new goals, etc.
I've been trying to add members as sparkfriends and adding them to my address book.

Good Morning Sorry it took so long to get back to you...
I, also, have Roadrunner for my internet carrier...

Sign in to your Webmail from the Roadrunner site.
On the left side of the page is a list of your folders.
There should be one that says Junk Mail....
If you have more than one email address, you have to sign into each of them to get the folders for that particular email address.
Hope this helps.

Here is my email to Paul...

Good Morning Paul I Miss You !!!!!
Can't wait for the summer to begin so you can share some of your great ideas with us.
I have a question....
We have 2 VERY Inactive Leaders and I would Love to be a Co-Leader with you.
Is that a possibility?
The team is really in need of an active leader and I think you and I can do a Suburb Job together.
Do let me know and You have yourself a wonderful day.

Good Morning...I did check my spam folder, nothing there. I wasn't automatically put on the Leader list. No answer or reply from SP and none of the leaders have posted in the last 70+ days...2 of them, not since 2009 on our team or even their SparkPage.
I know we all get busy and may even leave SP. I totally understand.
Maybe they are just behind as you said...
I'm going to email Paul (one of our leaders) as he is so Awesome, has a ton of experience and Super Ideas. Maybe He and I can be co-leaders....

Patti you'll be auto-added if no one objects, and notified if someone does, so check your junk email folder; if there's nothing there then SP must be behind or having site issues.

Maybe they're behind due to the holiday? Alot of people had Friday off. Unless they changed the policy, you'll be auto-added. You show up right away on the team leaders list to the right of the page.

Once you're added, on the Team page, click on Team Leader Actions / down arrow / Add/Remove Leaders. There you can remove the MIA leaders if you wish to do so.

It's nice to have team leaders, but I liked this team b/c of the super diversity of people who frequent it! There are so many kinds of "Putting food by," canning, freezing, dehydrating, and so many neat people who do different things to preserve their bounty, I honestly didn't notice that the leaders were inactive! Thanks for picking up the slack, I've got a bunch of things going in my garden now, it'll be time to start preserving in no time! This board has been great for recipes and ideas, I really hope it keeps going!

It's kinda hard to be "active" on Teams whose leaders don't follow through. At the very least someone else should be put in that position to keep the team going. We know you've taken up that role Patti....but there would be things you could do that you can't as a "member". I did go back through the leaders and there really hasn't been any activity for quite some time.

This Team is more than just for "fun", I think it's very important on many levels. Because putting up your own goods is healthier, you KNOW where they came from, you can control the kinds of pesticides (or not) that you utilize. I will be growing organic not just because it's better for us but because we live on a lake and it's so important for our aquatic life and the life of our lake to keep chemicals out of it. That takes in our fowl as well, ducks, geese, pelicans, king fisher, crane, herons and our American Bald Eagle. It's also important for many of us that are just getting back into putting up or those that want to but aren't sure how! It's the knowledge of the group that is as important as motivating each other through weight loss (that's important too)!

I have joined/left many Teams since I've started here because there just wasn't any interaction...that's disappointing when your looking for a place to "fit in" and a place you can get to know others, a place to go to have your questions answered from folks that share your interests .....and just a place to go to share the good/bad of this journey we're all on!

I'm sorry, guess I got a bit winded.....but I hope I was clear about how I feel.

Good Question...You would think they would see this thread and comment or something !!!!
AND the Wierdest thing is, is that none of our leaders has posted anything right before or after I submitted my request.
So how come the Inactive Leader notice is gone??? No one posted anything....

Kinda poking my head in the door here. I'm a "newbie" to this team and didn't feel I could/should say anything. I was going to just leave because there wasn't much going on here. I had joined so I could learn more about canning, dehydrating etc. I use to can (about 100 years ago) but stopped when I had to go to work full-time. I'm retired now, finally, and can once again devote myself to a garden and get back to those things I use to love. Anyway, I'm sticking around to see what happens here!

Hope I didn't hurt anyone's feelings....didn't mean to if I did...

GEMINI-SKY I think you should take over the team. I did this on the crock pot team when they had an MIA leader. I thought one was bad; 3?! What's up with 3!! Just add yourself, in 3 days SP will auto-add you if none of the three reply, and then you can take off the 3 MIA leaders. It's self evident they have lost interest if they can't even post once in 60 days. They probably won't even notice you requested to be added. You don't actually have to do anything; other than post once every 60 days (which you already do); unless someone asks you a question directly it's no added burden to you to lead. What I'm saying is, this would be a low-mntce team to take over. And at least you're present! If they ever come back from wherever they went, or they regain their health and come back to SP, or if they gain weight (hope not) and come back to SP for that reason, they can always send the team leader request (to you) to be added and you can add them back on. But based on the past few months, I doubt they're interested.

Things happen in peoples' lives and none of us should judge since we don't know. We thank them for their past service, and hope they come back, actively, in the future. But in the meanwhile, I think you should step in.

EDITed to add:
I sent a courtesy SparkMail and page comment to the former leaders when I took over two leaderless teams; I didn't expect a response. I told them we'd noticed their prolonged absence, and if they remained MIA I was thinking about removing them, unless I heard from them otherwise. And when no response came, I removed them as team leaders, telling them to contact me if there was future interest. Never did hear a peep out of any of them.

I never thought to can potatoes. But I do buy sliced canned potatoes for that reason though. They are handy in a pinch. Do you fill w/ salted water before canning?

I would love to see some healthy foods to can ! I am fairly new here but not new to canning ! I been canning for 40 years lacking 3 years we had to live in a mobile home park because of health issues but are on an acre now ! I can all winter soup beans-vegetable soup- chilli hot dogs ect. We don't like soup out of the store so i can 14+ quarts of each plus some to eat when i can them. Tomarrow i got an extra 10 lb bag of potatoes given to me and i got 10 lbs so i am going to can them ! I just empty them into a pan bring them to a boil and mash them or drain them good and make homefries ! I only use them when i don't feel like peeling potatoes or have been gone and tired ! They are handy ! I WOULD LOVE SOME NEW RECIPES ! emoticon emoticon emoticon

The Lord is my strength and i know i can do better with the Lords help. The Lord laid it on my heart to start a team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANYBODY THAT WANTS HELP TO LOSE THEIR WEIGHT TO JOIN . I KNOW I CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT THE LORDS HELP !

I so totally agree. That's why I added a thread for a weigh in recently.
Maybe we could do a thread for healthy recipes to can, tips and techniques....

It would be nice if we would also, in addition to "Putting Foods By" encourage each other for wgt. loss. I find that we rarely do that and I believe that for most of us, that is why we're here at SP in the first place. Wgt. loss & optimum health!!

Let's hold each other up!!!!
