    I think both of the aforementioned ideas are great and would be valuable for APUG. Maybe we can test something like that soon?

    "Scanning is still off topic at APUG."

    Why is DPUG called Digital if it is Hybrid? Calling it "Digital" just gets it lost in all the other digital forums. Perhaps that is the reason it is a desert there. If what makes DPUG distinctive is the Hybrid aspect, why would it not be called Hybrid? Are there more Hybrid competitors than Digital? Surely not.

    I looked over there to see if there was a thread explaining the name change and could find none. I googled (on Google) for a page explaining this and couldn't find one.

    Monito - It used to be called Hybrid Photo. It got renamed because, as I understand, it was part of the revamping to make it a more lively site.

    Thanks. I can understand revamping: both APUG and DPUG have gorgeous interfaces that beat almost all forums. I can't call to mind one that has a better interface.

    However, the name change still makes no sense. Giving it a misleading name that gets lost in an extremely competitive field doesn't make it more lively.

    Thanks, jnanian. The only thing I can extract from that is that the name change seeks to "expand the scope" beyond a tiny niche. Good luck. I think the niche is far less tiny than thought, far larger, when you consider scanning.

    I don't think anyone but APUG users refer to it as hybrid. It's a term I've never heard a pro lab use and not even lomo types use it.

    The reason it becomes contentious is because APUG tries to put a Berlin Wall around such discussions instead of owning outright the scanning issue as a sub-forum as has been suggested already.

    I mean DPUG used to be called Hybrid Photo or something. It was hybridphoto.com.
