Steve, you and your team have created my favorite photo site for tips, tricks, and germane info. However, the Supreme Commander in the house has noticed increased credit card and UPS activity. Please, let other enthusiasts become aware of possible domestic turbulence after reading your site. Keep up your GREAT efforts in photography.

The wonderful photos along with very helpful critique and comments can certainly lead to a serious case of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome). I'm fighting it off as best I can. :sneaky: I guess we need to remember that it's not necessarily the gear that makes a great photo.

To Steve and other posters that I’ve had experience with - as a truly amateur photographer I was extremely hesitant to post any of my photos, but I have & the response has been nothing but positive. Extremely helpful & my experience has been very non-hostile. Now maybe I’m just now bright enough to understand the comments!😀
I love this site & the help it has provided. Thank you also for putting this together.

Maybe add something in the guidelines for people to indicate in their signature where they live in the world. I find it is very helpful when responding/commenting on others' posts. Better yet if their location could be indicated in the panel under the name/avatar.

That is a good idea! And where in the world the photo was taken.

I am curious about how folks sell their gear as many are making a move from being DSLR shooters to mirrorless and as lenses upgrade. Is it appropriate on this forum to ask about selling and buying used gear?

Often some folks say "I had that lens and moved up to the XYZ." I'm not saying this is the place for a yard sale. Just asking on thoughts about a topic for "In Search Of" or private "gear available." Then the connection can be continued privately.

No religion. Well that means no Nikon vs Canon vs Sony discussions. No PC vs Mac. Or Coke vs Pepsi. ::cool:

But I know what you mean, but at times discussion of camera brands can get be heated (luckily not here).

Yup, someone signing up for accounts and spamming. Just report anything like that and I can ban them with a quick press of a button.
Thanks. I think I sent you the private message I received.
