    And none in two months. No participation in this thread since October 2012. 4 posts total, all before camera's launched.

    This ain't my round, these aren't my cameras, but knowing how these things work, not a good bet. I have nothing against the guy, but zero participation means he just might not be interested enough to do the right thing.

    Mebbe we should have a rule that all who participate need to post on the thread at least once every other week,stay tuned in.

    Agreed, tim. Nevertheless, since we did open participation on a first-come basis, we should attempt to hold to it. The best compromise may be to give him a few days to affirm his interest, and then move on. We'll give it a few more days, and if he hasn't responded, we'll move on. This is in line with the rules we posted early on.

    But you raise a great point. How to best minimize the risk, knowing we'll never truly eliminate it? We've thought about setting minimum participation criteria, and we should have that discussion in earnest, but I hate the idea of leaving new voices and participants out. We've all been there once, right?

    Yep. Steve is from the Isle of Wight, UK.
    Its historic name was Vectis, which Minolta appropriated for its somewhat odd APS SLR.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Our local bus company also uses Vectis in its name: http://www.islandbuses.info/

    I know what a rampart is but what has that got to do with the national anthem?

    Steve.
    Fort McHenry has ramparts. You just need to know where to look.

    We all know the beetles just couldn't find anything to rhyme with Vectis, it was just too dear.
