In light of the fact we have today lost a few members over a certain thread, I would like to start a POSITIVE thread about building a community. Now this is just my opinion, but after all have had their say, maybe we can then come up with a list of guidelines for community behavior. I leave that to Sean to cull out what would work. I propose in the spirit of TOLERENCE that relgion unless it directly relates to a photograph be a non subject. We are a community of different ideologies, and theologoies. Bashing one or most, does no good but to show intolerance by us to the world. I propose that ALL disscussion about politics be banned unless it directly relates to a photograph, or a proposed measure that would seriously impact the WHOLE community. Ie to this last bit, a move world wide to ban rodinal would get to Morten and others, and would be of interest. I propose that if threads deter into dangerous ground that would be offensive to a segment of our community, that we take it upon ourselves to listen when those voices ask us to stop.I was sentA PM from one of the people who chose to leave. That person has asked in one of the threads for it to stop, and it was unheeded. We are supposed adults, lets act like one. I propose have a forum about what excites us as opposed to what makes us upset. We all remember our first film development. We all know the rush we have when a scene before us sings and we attempt to capture it. We all know the joy of seeing others who go through their firsts. Who are these people? Where are these people? Why not pick a person and do an interview, more than the featured member is. Get to the heart of that person, get to know who and what they are, so we can all begin to understand. We do not walk the same paths, lets enjoy the new discoveries of other paths. I open this up for more suggestions.
