Compared to a 5D MkIII and a 1200mm lens!When compared to which point & Shoot??
Funnily enough I was in Best Buy yesterday and saw the SX50, it is tiny!
What happens to the people who don't meet the minimum IQ? Do they have to go post on Nikon sites?
I stopped reading for awhile. But to be honest, there seems to be a bit of an upswing in the quality of some of the threads. So I have been reading more often for awhile now. Ironically, it seems that the fewer "rumors" the better the content of the forums.
Seeing the images in this thread, shot by a thirty year pro photographer, just makes me realise it has absolutely nothing to do with the gear, just get out there and shoot. Reading your acceptance of Mikael's latest persona on face value makes me realise time spent arguing here is largely wasted.
Although a tad awkard it's possible to use a battery-gripped body lefthanded , flip it so both shutters point up It's a bit tight between the thumb and forehead, but hey
Have you tried implementing a question -> response registration type? (Not sure, been a while since I last registered here)
I had a similar problem on my page a while back and none of the CAPTCHAS worked. So I created a custom field on the registration page where I asked a question stating where the answer can be found. (Must be on a different page, on the top of the Help page should work) It's very easy for real humans to answer the question (open a new tap and voila) but bots will have a very problem going around that one. You can even easily generate a new Q&A every day making sure that the answer is nor being spread around or guessed easily.
On my page the amount of spam accounts went from daily to pretty much zilch. (Haven't had a bot in months)
yep..... you are right.
thank god for proxys.
banning is stupid and useless anyway.... as if you could not make a new account in 1 minute.
What do you mean "don't show in the user list so they were deleted"? Shouldn't that be the other way around? What are your criteria for deleting usernames? I definitely don't fall into the categories "CR Backup Admin" has mentioned. I can still search for my old posts. Yes, I'm the 100th person to register for this forum after the reformat. But I was already very active even before there was even a forum and we all just commented below the actual article. That is why I chose that username, it was an in-joke during those times before there was a forum (old-timers here would know the "joke" ), same with my signature (another in-joke, used by another poster in an article comment thread then ).
