OK - Jerevan and PE captured the essense of what my original post was about. Not to knock your forum, Ian, but it seems to me that having two web sites covering the subject of emulsion making dilutes our efforts. With the vast amount of info already on this site, I was wondering why have a second forum?
You're certainly free to make your own website and cover any subject matter you wish, but this one is well established and also offers a better chance of introducing new people to the subject matter merely by the large number of people that frequent APUG.
(Personally, I have issues with APUG's heretical anti-digital stance, but it doesn't really seem to effect the emulsion making forum at all.)
PE - why go to a forum with a very small number of members to learn up-to-date info? I thought all the info here was up-to-date?
