    New - improved LF forum up and running

    For anyone who hasn't ever bothered to visit it in its old form, the LF Forum has a new look (same software as apug now) and is up and running well (lots of chatter about the new software right now)

    http://www.largeformatphotography.info/forum/index.php

    Very useful as it has years of old info archived. As well, it is linked to probably the best online LF resources - answers many for our recurring questions and some for questions you haven't even thought of yet:

    ...so long as it involves a big camera, or at least a not too small one that can be bent into funny shapes.

    yes, the bigotry across there is reserved for those who use funny little toy cameras like Hasselblads and such :-)

    I like it enough that I post with my full name. I have not seen too many heated discussions, other than the relevant merit of some photographers works. There was a good Burtynsky and Gursky thread not long ago, though maybe a little like "What Is Art?" sort of thread. Mostly very civilized.

    Ciao!

    While a big fan of and long-time member of that forum, I must take issue with the thread title. There's nothing improved about the LF forum. Its software was simply changed from a clean, straighforward customized design to the same commercial product used here. Not reason to decrease my opinion of the forum's value, but certainly no cause for seeing it as "improved."

    Oh lah di dah...!

    Well - for one it has a wanted and for sale section (before there were no commercial posts allowed). It's also much easier to post images in a thread.

    Two simple improvements for starters.

    (as a well as an off topic lounge to keep the neo-cons in)

    I consider that a degradation, not an improvement.

    So now more heated discussion will appear concerning aesthetic matters about which there can be no right or wrong. Neutral at best, certainly not an improvement.

    Sounds like LF forum is trying to emulate what APUG is.

    Yes, and in addition, trolling and personal attacks have started already.

    I don't think so Aggie. They just replaced their old software with the same commercial product Sean uses here. That and a new server mean more "features" are available for use/misuse.
