    I followed that link, saw the competition (which is also being advertised in the rotating banner), became a paying subscriber, entered the competition.

    But now that thread has been removed.

    What's going on??

    If it wasn't for the scrolling banner I'd guess it was deleted to remove fuel from the KK vs KL discussions.

    I made a comment on it this morning, so you're not dreaming.

    interesting...

    If you go to the "Become a Supporting Member" page it still has the banner ad for the KK Warehousing warming giveaway. But if you click on the link the thread is gone.

    That seems really dodgy. Why would they pull the post?

    You can't be in it, you are not a paid up supporter

    Must have one all three prizes. Which I didn't think should be possible if you worked at Keg-King

    Where does it say one has to be a paid up supporter?
    This is the thread isn't it, 'Keg King give away thread'

    This is not the thread for the giveaway.

    This is the thread asking where the hell the giveaway thread went, as it's disappeared.

    Nope, the thread is "Keg King Giveaway thread ?" note the question mark, but you know that anyway don't you. Just more bullshit from the usual suspects. @mkstalen I'm surprised you fell for it mate, next time check the bona fides of all the "oh yes I'm in" posters and you'll find there's no substance to them, looks like you wasted $25 in the hope of getting an outdated bit of kit, they'll be giving them away as soon as the new ones hit. As for asking admin what's going on you may also ask them about the inkbird giveaway fiasco.
