    Forums, just like the credit card machines at the checkout lanes, are all different. I've moderated a few in my days, but it always takes me a bit to get used to a new one.

    I'm just going to do things the hard way and it'll just take some time. I hope that everyone can bear with me while things are a little hard to find...as soon as I go through everything, they won't be anymore.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Okay, I just did a little experiment. In the moderators' control panel I used the batch "move" function to move all threads in the Rangefinder Forum with the word "Nikon" in them to the Nikon Rangefinder Forum--seven threads. I got a menu that allowed me to move selectively, so that you could uncheck any threads that shouldn't be moved. This might make it easier to deal with the Leica threads that will overlap forums.

    Can you access the modcp? If not, and if it's not convenient for Sean to give you access, let me know, and I'll take a look and try to set up some more batch moves for you.

    I just did the same and moved any "Zeiss" threads as well as some of the "Contax" threads into the Zeiss Rangefinder Forum, but in the "Move Selectively" menu, I deselected Contax G threads, since I wasn't sure if you would want them in the Zeiss category or if you had something else in mind for them.

    One thing I discovered in this process is that a search on the Rangefinder Forum will include all subforums, so threads that are already in the appropriate subforum will show up as threads to be moved, but they'll be moved into the same subforum, where they should be.

    Also, "X vs Leica" threads I moved into the "X" category, since the Leica categories will probably be pretty large, and there seem to be many such threads.

    I'm inclined just to delete any thread that has "vs." in it in any category anywhere on APUG, but I won't do that.

    I can't create new forums. If enough people think it's a good idea, Sean can set it up. I threw it out there, and Ole had some further suggestions, but I don't know if we need a separate forum from the LF forum.

    If others have an opinion one way or the other, speak up, and maybe we can find a concensus. I'm ambivalent about it.

    Had another go in the control panel, and I moved a bunch of Russian threads into the Russian Rangefider forum, Voigtlander threads into the Voigtlander forum, Canon threads into the Canon forum, and some of the MF threads into MF. I also made a little headway into Leica M territory.

    What about Bessa I and II and Perkeo threads--Voigtlander or Medium Format?

    I'd say MF. Just as my VAG, Avus and Bergheil cameras are "Plate Cameras", even if they're Voigtländers.

    But then there are MF folders with rangefinders as well...

    Ole, I've already thanked you for the suggestion and told you that I found the "View New Posts" button before I read your reply.

    Now, please click on the "View New Posts" button while at the top level of the RF forums. When I do it, it returns all new posts in all forums. More posts I don't want to see to wade through. Please advise what I've done wrong and how to get the thing to show me just and only new posts in the RF forums.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    p.s., every day in every way I like this split less and less

    Hi Dan, that link is just the same as the one at the top of the forum header. Things will be much better when we upgrade soon, stay tuned.

    Over at photo.net I noticed that Philip Greenspun is looking to consolidate forums, because the creation of many small forums has produced more fragmented discussion across the board. Of course photo.net is very different from APUG, but I think that's an experience we might want to think about and learn from before creating too many new forums.

    I still think we need genre/aesthetics/technique forums (like portrait, still life, landscape, figure, etc.), because it's an issue that keeps coming up in different ways, and we don't have a good place for those kinds of discussions, but before we create a list of brand forums for each format, it would probably be a good idea to see how they work in the Rangefinder forums for at least six months or a year.
