    Feedback thread.

    Now that the forums are split up, Sean and I are going to need your help deciding what forums we have, what forums we do away with, what forums we change, etc. If you have a suggestion for something, put it here. If you have a general complaint about something, put it here.

    I've also just found that I can move threads and I'm trying to decide whether or not to move things to their appropriate forums or to just leave the old threads where they are. Comments on THAT would be appreciated as well.

    Help me do well by you guys by giving me as much feedback as possible. It's greatly appreciated.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I think it would be a good idea to sort out some of the existing threads and move them into the new forums just to get things going and to avoid redundant threads in the future. Go for it.

    Should there be a forum for LF rangefinders (Graflex and other press cameras, Linhof, Littman and other Polaroid conversions)? We can discuss such things in the LF forum, of course, and maybe it's better there, but it's something to think about.

    I was just thinking about that.

    I left it out because I figured that it could stay in the LF forum, but then it hit me that perhaps since everything else gets attention in the actual forum it would be a nice addition.

    Oh boy oh boy oh boy! All that the new arrangement has done has been to increase the time it takes to find new posts. IMO the old way was better.

    Or do it the simple way, and click the "new posts since your last visit" in the top right corner... But that's probably too easy?

    That would be a wide and varied group, but still only a limited subset.

    There's a lot of difference between a 5x7" Technika and a Littmann, even if both are supposed to be made for hand held shooting with a rangefinder. And Speed Graphics have their own quite unique set of questions, as I'm just learning...

    IMO a subgroup for "small LF" - 6x9, rollfilm etc with full movements - might be more useful. And then we wouldn't have to discuss whether they're LF or MF!

    My bad, I found it after I posted and before I came back here. Arrgh!

    Cheers,

    Well...

    If you're looking for Leica M, go to the Leica M forum. If you're looking for Russian/FSU rangefinders, go to the Russian forum. If you're looking for Canon rangefinders, go to the Canon forum. Etc. Everything that doesn't have a forum of its own still goes in the normal catch-all forum.

    I'll be working on moving as much stuff as I can whenever I have time to the appropriate forums. I wish that this forum script had a way to do that with more than one at a time.

    Anyone else think that some sort of "cheapie rangefinder" for Yashicas, fixed lens Canons, Minoltas, etc. would be a good idea? Certainly that is more what I am interested in.

    There might be some tricky way of doing it involving the moderation control panel, if Sean has given you access to that, but it doesn't seem to be built in. For instance, you can move threads in batches based on the date of last reply, origin date, number of responses, user name, title, and other parameters.

    So maybe if wildcards are allowed in the title field (and I'm not sure that they are), you could add some marker to the title of each thread you want to move, then move them all that once, but I'm not sure that changing the title of a thread is necessarily easier than just moving the thread.
