    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I definitely do not want to go overboard generating subforums and new forums. Overall it should be fairly subtle. Over the next few weeks I'll get a framework in place and run it by everyone first for another session of feedback.

    What about a Yashica Electro 35 forum?

    I think the Zeiss forum should possibly be renamed Zeiss/Contax. The Russian forum should be renamed Russian/FSU. I don't really want to go too far overboard with this. I think that Yashica/Petri/other compact rangefinders can be talked about in the main section of the rangefinder forum without much confusion. I'm not belittling those cameras, it's just that they probably don't have the userbase to have a forum of their own.

    On rangefinderforum things are a bit different because that's all the site focuses on...but here, we don't really need to be that specific. At least in my opinion.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    reub2k, you're a piker. What we need is two forums for Yashica RF cameras, including Nicca, one each for mechanically and electronically timed shutters; for Minolta RF cameras; for Olympus; for Canon, leaf shutter and focal plane shutter; for Konica RF cameras; for Aires; for each of the other Japanese makes of fixed lens RF 35 mm cameras; for Leica thread mount clones, including Nicca; for Afga RF cameras, all formats; for Regula; for Foca; ...

    The MF forum should be split by maker and type. Rollei TLRs just don't fit in the same space as Rollei SLRs.

    The LF forum should be split by camera type: monorail, tailboard, folding press/technical. And Sean should reach out and engulf www.graflex.org.

    We need a meters forum. Split by maker, including GE.

    ...

    The RF forum split may have seemed like a good idea but I think its dumb.

    I don't like the idea of dividing by camera make. What was broken in the RF forum that needed fixing?

    Best,

    If we stick with the divided forums, yes, these should both be changed. Perhaps just "FSU" rather than "Russian/FSU," since "FSU" would include Russia, and many cameras were made in Ukraine.

    I also think the forums are just becoming cluttered. It's nowhere as clean looking as it once was.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Good ideas. Maybe just one fixed lens rangefinder forum will do.
