    Sounds good to me. The only main reason I thought we should break up RF forums was because these cameras have such strong ties to usage & collecting. I have a few rangefinders myself and there is something unique about them that is different from other equipment. Maybe that's just me? We still need to refine the categories and will definitely moderate out any brand vs. brand silly arguments that flare up -for example if someone does not like Leica they should not be hassling people in the Leica subforum etc.. Also don't reserve judgement on subforums until you see the new version, it organizes subforums MUCH better than this current system..

    I think I'll wait to give you the final list I've come up with until we go to the new system. In the mean time, I'm going to spend some time shooting.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    On the other hand, anything we can do to improve research would be good. If one wanted to check the archives for " Crown Graphic", for instance, it would be essential to have tighter resolution than "LF" to tease it away from a million other posts.

    That would incorporate most of the breed,
    without weeding out those with RFDRs
    from those without.

    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.

    David,

    I think your idea is good. Maybe we can find a different word:

    "Genre" has a specific definition in Art History which probably isn't what we want to be dealing with here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hierarchy_of_genres

    It also has a negative connotation, from Pictorialism, which would be nice to avoid.

    Yes, I'm aware of the baggage associated with "genre" (I worry about that baggage for a living, in fact), but I haven't come up with a better term for it in this context. We could call them "aesthetics and technique" forums--the main idea being that they would be forums for particular photographic problems, with more emphasis on the technique than the gear. Not that the gear is irrelevant, but sometimes it's not the main issue.

    Yeah, I see the problem...

    The Voigtlander forum seems to be quite active.

    I might not be normal, but the brand forums have caused me to ignore the Rangefinder forums altogether. It takes too much work (clicking) to get around. Although I have more interest in certain brands than others, it isn't working for me.
