Is this guy a troll? No one even  knows what the hell he is talking about.

I'm at a loss, I checked logs and saw no hints.  The Mods have their own private area where they post about suspended or banned users, or discuss problem topics.

Reminder - We still ban users for abusive posts and language.  There is a lot of stress during the holiday season, but please act like adults.

Thanks and have a happy holiday.

Warning ... Giving advice on how to break the law, be it to import something without paying taxes due, or to get expensive software without paying for it is not allowed on the site, posts will be removed.

In some cases, the poster will be banned if the violation is obviously intentional.

Site Information / Re: What happens when you hit 10,000 posts?

Congrats CR Geek:)

As the first member to break 10,000, it seemed like we should do something special  for him.  We thought about awarding him a 200-400L, but not for long ;)

I reconnected your old posts.  There was a one time purge of old accounts, we removed 300,000 spam accounts that were signed up by robots before we were able to stop them.  Unfortunately, we also caught up a few good ones.  I have been able to reconnect them so far.


Site Information / Re: How to 'unfollow' a thread

The feature you want is not available in our forum software.  From what I've read, tracking things like that adds a load to the server, and for a big forum with lots of users like this one, it can slow things down.

I agree with you that I get tired of seeing the same thread over and over with nothing of value really added.  Its also true that we see the same posts over and over, which card should I use in my (Put your camera here).

I'll keep a eye out for the feature.

They certainly appreciate all of you linking the website URL and clicking the link.  That's how Google and others determine the ranking.

I've removed the URL and locked the topic to prevent more free advertising.

Lenses / Re: Does IS make bokeh busier/less smooth?

Bokeh is not affected by IS, it is determined by the lens design.  Typically, prime lenses will be better than zooms.

Only those who have never posted and were not logging in were removed.

Anyone who has even one post should be ok.

Thanks for your response, CR Backup Admin. As you already appear to be aware, that's not quite how it worked out - I had maybe five or so posts, but my account was deleted.

I'd already re-registered with the same username, so there's nothing to be done about it now; no big deal, those posts were hardly earth-shattering pearls of wisdom. Just please don't delete me again next time  ;)

I've relinked your old posts.  You had not logged in for 6 months, which is how your ID got removed.

Hopefully there will never be another cleanup like that one.

I did not think they could be recovered after reading up on how to recover a member, but I gave it a try anyway, and it worked :)

I just upgraded my Spyder 3 elite to Spyder 4 Pro.  You can get a upgrade from your Spyder 2 as well, as long as you have the serial number.

I use Windows 7 64 bit, but I'm sure it runs with Windows 8.

I have a cheap generic Samsung 27 inch monitor which is all I need, since colors match my prints just fine.

Site Information / LOST Active USER ACCOUNTS with posts??
« on: July 01, 2013, 12:20:05 PM »
Apparently, some members who were active and had posts have had their member account accidentally removed.  This should not have happened.  Their old posts will still be there and can be found in a search for the user name, but the account doesn't work. It only happened to those who had not logged in for 6 months or longer.

To fix this, please do the following.

1.  Create a new account with either the same or a different user name

2.  Send a private message to me giving me the original account name.

3.  I will re-attribute the posts to your new account name.    Your post count will be updated to show the correct quantity.

If your old user account had no posts, just recreate it.

IF anyone had posts and was deleted, create a account with a either the same name, or a new user name.

Then drop me a private message with your old account name that had the posts.   I can credit those posts to you.

Note that only those who had not logged in for 6 months or longer have the issue, and so far, I've been able to relink the orphaned posts..


So what should an inveterate lurker like myself do to avoid being purged? I read the forum about once or twice a week, but only log in if I actually want to post, which isn't that often (clearly, as I just had to re-register).

Only those who have never posted and were not logging in were removed.

Anyone who has even one post should be ok.

How can I unsubscribe to a thread?  Because I kinda don't care about the replies in this topic.

In the attachments and other options at the bottom of your post, uncheck "Notify me of Replies"

Hopefully that will do it.
