    Fundraiser: Australian Fire Relief Charity Shirt

    This is not a political forum, and its getting out of hand. Stop the arguments about fires and global warming. I have my opinions as well, but since its not photography related, I post elsewhere. I've removed as many of the offending posts as I can find. I don't want to resort to bans, but...

    Thanks for the report. We take all of them seriously. We cannot read private conversations, what did he ask? I tried to check him out yesterday before approving him for a member, he is from Slovenia and that's a different culture. Its also possible being new that he doesn't have a clue as...

    SMF Photo Gallery is HERE!!

    I'm not sure why, but the media tab was not turned on, so I turned it on. That menu may need some tweaking becaused it caused some duplicated entries under the Forums tab. I have not tried adding Media yet! There is a function in the Forum software for Media Gallery Administrator, if...

    The Updated Canon Rumors Site & Forum Will Launch Sunday Evening (EST)

    I've had a chance to test a beta installation over the past 6 months +. The mobile phone experience is night and day better. The forum software is indeed a tried and tested base that has been modified to fit the CR look and feel, even so, we are all going to have to learn a lot. At last, PDF...

    Can not start a new topic

    Don, it should be ok now. The issue was too many posts! For some reason, when those member groups with high post counts were created, they were based on a group that did not have permission to create new topics. I've fixed that. Two member groups containing 4 people were affected.

    I've removed posts referring to Na**'s, sorry if I missed any. They are never funny, but since its a rare occurrence, I've issues warnings rather than a ban.

    A Canon DSLR Rumor Roundup Heading into 2018

    I seldom resort to Bans, but I can and do BAN users, even those with lots of posts when they continue to insult others after a warning. I have also issued warnings. If you directly insult other members be prepared to get the boot. If someone is insulting YOU, report it.

    Is there any way to sell stuff on this site?

    A couple of years back, we experimented with a for sale forum, but, only a few users listed stuff. The moderators did not want the extra work trying to keep scammers off the forum, there was no way for buyers to five feedback on the items they bought, so it went away. Even though virtually all...

    All of a sudden I'm seeing clickbait here

    You are probably seeing advertising based on sites you have visited. As I understand it, a update was made to the forum software that breaks ad blockers. Thats all I know.
