Please post your mu-43.com suggestions and requests in this thread.
I tried in the discussion forum about progressing your photography.
I got very personal and then felt that the thread got hijacked.
I felt that opening up would inspire others to also do so.
Now I wish I didn't.
There is potential here but it will take time for members to build that potential.
It's good to see familiar faces and new ones trickling in to join this new forum .
With :43: gaining momentum as a system and few sites focused on building a :43: community, I think we've got a fantastic chance of building a thriving site and would like to get some ideas from the early members here as to how we can improve things towards that goal.
Are there any features you'd like to see? Suggestions for how to spread the word? These things take time, I know, but I'd like to help it along in any way I can!
The opposite is what I meant my friend. I felt I hijacked the thread by posting very personal.
I felt this forum was somewhat different and hopefully that will remain true in the future.
We shall see.....
Not to Hijack this thread, LOL, but photography is something for many very personal. I don't know if I personally would be as vested in it(which I'm not really, when it comes to money. I am however, when it comes to time and the nagging of loved one's while trying to get the right shot) if photography wasn't. All hobbies are personal. For example, I've gotten into astronomy the last year. Got a decent scope for christmas last year and started to learn and view the heavens. I'd have to say, one of my most memorable and personal experiences was seeing the Orion nebula for the first time in sub 15 degree weather.
To the real point, don't discount the idea because its personal.
how cool you mention the astronomy hobby --- I also did the same thing last January, I bought a telescope and was about to view the Orion Nebula for the first time myself. It is a very good experience and it makes you realize how small our little planet really is. In fact I have been waiting for the clouds to clear and to get back out there looking for more stuff in the night sky. Also on the same note this past summer I was able to find the Whirlpool Galaxy which was also good eye candy. By the way I did not get one the auto finder type scopes --- I just use my star maps and try to find stuff the hard way. Which when it is below freezing i sometimes question my logic.
I have yet to find the whirlpool galaxy. I have a smallish scope(5 inch reflector) and tons of light pollution.
Don, I know how you feel - but just to thank you for sharing your personal views here... I'm confident that we can create and maintain a very positive vibe on this forum.
Amin, patience is the key... along with consistent activity over time.
As for dpreview, it's a hugely popular gear focused site - but I won't be trying to discuss Photography to any depth there... I hope this forum will be completely different in that regard.
Thanks everyone for the emotional support.
Is this when we do the group Huggy thing?
