    Having willingly subscribed to APUG I do not think I will renew. It was a real shame to see the site owner delete an entire thread I had started about PF and my experience with them, without notice nor explanation. I will continue to contribute to the forums but feel that I cannot contribute financially given events.

    PF = Photographer's Formulary. A sponsor here, who the previous poster had an issue with.

    Goons

    Antielectrons, I feel your pain. The thread had turned into a b*itchfest and was serving no further useful pupose. I became concerned also about the fact that it had been deleted, rather than closed.

    HOWEVER.... With the wealth of information available here, the resources and personalities represented, this is a valuable and important place to be if you are in love or flirting with conventional photography. Yes, there are others, but this one is a labor of love on all our parts, and I dont even want to think about what this costs Sean to run.

    There are a couple other prominent groups that are run by a few opinionated people that can only simply be described as Forum Goons. Enter any topic they dont like and they are all over you like stink on....whatever. Or pose something that is a mundane question to the Einstiens (oops, I mean demigods) of the group, many who are moderators, and watch your cojones get stomped.

    I would encourage you to scratch your mad spot and get glad! Subscriptions make this thing go, and anyone that is more than a casual user should seriously consider supporting the effort. Even if a b*itchfest thread goes in the dump. Just my opinion, and the opinion of my trusty sidekick Rocky. Right Rocky?

    something witty and profound needs to be inserted here...

    Pragmatist,

    Thanks but still no news from the person who deleted the thread nor why they did it. From where I am sitting the sponsors carry more weight here than the subscribers. Fair enough. If that is the way it is let them pay for the site. Personally I don't see the point in paying to have my contributions deleted.

    Sorry Sean...the financial planets weren't in proper alignment this month so I could only subscribe for 6 months (+ paypal's cut + taxes).

    I'll bump it up next time!

    How about adding an option to the subscription page? 'Buy a gift subscription for another member'.

    I tried to pay for a subscription and was told "no such page". Does that mean I am an undesirable? Can someone pointme in the correct direction before I spend the money on junk, er camera stuff.
    Thanks

    OK, I found the way and have submitted. Please ignore the above. Sean, I first tried to follow the link on the first post and it didn't work. I suggest replacing it with one which does or delete it and give directions to subscribe.
    Thanks
    Michael
