We are in need of a few researchers. What you would do is to;

Track down rumors and verify info. Post on threads and keep them updated.
Once we have real verification of a rumor that is now a reality, your thread will be 5 GOLD STARRED at no expense and placed on the front page.

This could make you famous! Your efforts will be honored and appreciated not only by the members of the forum but the entire photography universe. YOU can make a difference. YOU can be the coveted wizard of rumors.
All applications accepted.
The pay scale starts at the lower end of nothing but after you get experienced and bring good stuff to the forum members, you get a raise to the upper end of appreciation.

Please post on the thread if you have the stamina and the guts to take on the rumor spreaders. It ain't an easy task but some one has to do it....
Are YOU up for the job?

Hmmm - I like your suggestion.

I had fun posting the EIS Canon rumor, then found out that it was started by a "known rumor felon". Feeling pretty sheepish after that. But I also found that reaction (from a translation of the same Chinese forum), and never posted a retraction here.

After reading what you wrote here, I'll take more responsibility for adding further information that becomes available on anything I do post.

(Question to Streetwalker: I had decided not to fix that thread because it had gone down below the fold, and I didn't want it to go back up in the list ... I figured it was better to let sleeping dogs lie. Is it possible to "Update" a thread title and edit the first post without having the rumor pop back up to the top of the list?)

I too like Don's suggestion. Post on threads is easy, to keep them updated maybe not that easy. It's a matter of time. I assume that at Photokina Sony will unveil their 3D camera (rumored before, I checked my source). How many stars to give to thar rumor?
I don't know. I'm not a researcher...sorry Don.

To edit/update a thread...

Go to the 1st post in the thread.
Click "Edit".
Click "Go Advanced"....you then will see the title of the thread and can edit it.

Bill, The yellow worked. It attracted you.
The pay grade is based on commission.
So, the more ya do, the more you won't get.
The inverse square law again.
We appreciate your efforts.
You'll be known as "The Wizard of Oz".

Icon my friend,
It's obvious you don't have the eye for color. Your a B&W kinda guy.
That there is what we need.
These rumors are often the Colorized versions of rumored facts.
So, the Wizards of Truth, will see past the colorized versions, they will pp the info and convert to B&W and have actual facts to present the Photography Universe.
Icon, you have passed level 1.
You are ready to continue the quest.
We are counting on you...
Icon, the "Truth Seeker of Oz".
