    I know what you were thinking. I just added another aspect I thought would be nice.

    I'd love a space where I could get critique and comments on my work without using the gallery. This isn't because I don't want to subscribe...I'm actually planning to again. It's that I like to keep all my stuff on my own webspace so that when something gets looked at my hit count goes up. Then I have, in one place, how much people are looking at my work. It lets me keep track of what's successful and what isn't without having to go to five different websites to tally up results.

    Just another thing to think about. Not saying that it has to be done, but it would be an interesting and most likely welcome addition.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Sean got it right. Let's give it a shot.
    Good points which is why I too think Sean called it right.

    But if we were to see the "35mm..." forum now evolve into a "SLR forum" then sub-fora by lens mount type would make some sense given the many 3rd-party producers of compatible lenses and bodies for the "big guys".....

    Also, I don't mean this as a subset of the Rangefinder forum, but a separate set of forums.
    I agree this would be very useful.

    I didn't see any brand flame war here as many as other places so far, but the sub forum should be a good idea to start, set up a Canon and Nikon forum and watch them beat each others brain out.

    This would be my only concern.

    Maybe, but if someone were looking for info on a 3rd party lens that comes in four different mounts, as most of them seem to these days, it wouldn't necessarily matter whether they discussed it under the Nikon, EOS, Pentax, etc. mount forum.

    Subforums and hidden states

    Slightly off-topic:

    If I tick the box, not wanting to see the RF forum, I still have to tick all the boxes for the various subforums to not have them show up in my "new posts". Same goes for Member organized functions. And the Grey Area. I can accept that, but when I save, do I need to log out and in again for it to work as it should?

    Because when I enter the Forum Visibility Edit Mode again after saving, all tick-the-boxes I have done for the subforums are gone, and the posts from the subforums show up in my "new posts".

    I am afraid this idea won't work. As long as this list of the last xxx posts since my last visit is offered (which does make sense), it can always happen that any dumb Leica haters attention is attracted by a thread in the Leica sub-forum and he drops in to say his irrelevant opinion tho ge has not really the right to do so.

    I still cannot see any sense in dividing the forum in makes, because my experience is that the majority in photo forum is interested not only in the make he owns himself but in others too, for what reason ever.
    And I have heard that even of folks in the Leica crowd are interested in other makes.

    In general I would consider this sort of make segregation ideas as contraproductive to a forum idea, which should be a platform for an effective information interchange .

    And as an ordering argument you don't need the subforums either, a good retrieval function finds everything in the archives.

    Last not least, diversifying the forum to all kinda makes and models is a first step towards a camera site, would be a pity, because this is and should stay a real nice photography site.

    Well nothing is set in stone, it is quite easy to merge them all back into one if it doesn't work out well. The forum visibility stuff is getting a total overhaul in the next version. You basically have a text list of all forums in your apug options, you simply highlight the forums you no longer want to see and save the changes, very nice..

    It sounds like the next version will be very nice indeed. I can't wait.
