    ...or does that mean the answer in this case is "just me"? ;-)

    "The network" usually has nothing to do with Large Format Photography Forum outages. If unplanned, they typically result from hardware issues at the donated server.

    I encourage anyone who thinks members of that forum are grumpy old men to avoid visiting. On the other hand, it would be difficult to find another absolutely free resource with anything close to the level of expertise offered there.
    +1, it's a great site. What may appear as grumpiness is mostly a lot of knowledge that forms pretty firm opinions in some cases, but by and large it's a friendly place.

    I like it better there, people are nicer to me than here.
    I think he shoots LF with a digital back doesn't he?

    Anyway, I'm glad it's there.

    Tuan currently does most of his new photography with Canon full frame digital equipment. He, the moderators, Tom Westbrook, who does software maintenance and Brian Reid, who donates the server and bandwidth, apparently provide the free forum because they formerly or currently use large format cameras and/or feel the community is a resource worthy of their efforts. Tuan still breaks out his 5x7 Canham and transparency film whenever a new National Park is created. He's photographed every one of them that way.

    At your age I'm surprised this is an issue. For the grumpy old men...

    Wouldn't it be better if the grumpy old men tried to be nice ?

    I didn't think you could still get E-6 in 5x7...

    Nice is over rated. Bah humbug. Bunch-a-whippersnappers always complainin' about somethin', expectin' everybody to be nice to 'em. Ptui! Who needs it?



    It seems a pretty nice place to me. Occasionally people get into tiffs but that's been true on every web forum I've ever been on. It's no worse over there than most and better than many.

    Well you can't, but it's pretty easy to cut down 8x10. One whack down the middle makes two 5x8s and then cut an inch off the long end. (Or doesn't Shenhoa or someone make a 5x8 camera for just that reason?)

    Oh, don't get me wrong. The vast majority of the membership there are very friendly and often helpful. There are just a handful of "grumpy old men"(*) who make it unpleasant. (I'm not talking about the open "tiffs". I'm talking about something much more subtle. There are a few who are constantly..well, "Grumpy"). Maybe I am just too much of an idealist but, I really do think it would be / could be a better place if just a few of the old timers would tone it down a bit...maybe not take themselves and everything quite so serious. I've kinda just come to accept that the few bad actors are who they are and leave it at that. Most of the time, they live on my ignore list.


    (*) understand that "grumpy old men" is a very polite way of saying something else.
