Well, the people that get called trolls are the ones who keep posting negativity over and over, or who act like trolls. That's just a fact.

At the risk of sounding like a troll, your whole post was negative about the forum. How about something positive?
Well, my intent was to be constructive. As I stated, I am a regular reader here, and have been for years. That implies that I see a lot of value in not just the rumors but also the collective experiences of the forum members. There's probably no better place to get the opinions of real users (i.e. not shills) on Canon gear. (Although they are a few YouTube vloggers I trust.)

Personally, I like to hear the good, the bad and the ugly on gear. Every engineered product on the market, of any type, has tradeoffs between costs, quality and functionality. I like to know what those tradeoffs are to make future decisions. So the collective knowledge and experience of the forum members is a huge positive.

Thanks for the info.

Now that I know how it is given or what it means...I guess my main question is...what USE is this? Is it used for anything?

Thanx,

If popularity contests are your thing, you can be the most "liked" person.

Without a "dislike" feature the title would be hollow.

Hmm....looks like animated gifs don't work on the new site for some reason.....(my avatar isn't working like it used to).

I'll look into the gif issue with avatars. I think I need to change the default image processor to Image Magick to make that work. I'll add it to the list.

I was going to maybe add "Giphy" to the site, but I'm not sure how many people love and/or loathe animated gifs. :)

I also realized that my avatar got downsampled during forum transformation by the image processor.
Changing or reloading the avatar made it good (high res) again (see my avatar now).

Hope, this might help in finding a solution.

And now under my avatar, it reads EOS 5D Mark IV (which is neither my camera, nor my previous forum level nor what I have written in the new forum under account details in 'About You'. For instance, Ken has a nice little title about slayer of Banjos. That's the type of personalized field I've been trying to edit. Thanks.

Click on your name (upper right), then Account details, and type what you want into the Custom title field. The descriptor under that field states, “If specified, this will replace the title that displays under your name in your posts.” Looks like they’ve activated the module that replaces Member/Active Member with camera models that increment up based on post count (just like the old forum), but that can be superseded by the custom title field (if that’s blank, you get the default label).

In this context, Hypeactive Member no longer makes sense...I wonder if I should go back to CR GEEK? I’ll think of something else, I think...

I appreciate the help but I do not have that field you mentioned. (Custom title w/descriptor)

I didn't care for the block letter avatar, so dug up an old creation, but now I have a 77D under my name. Why is it there? What does it all mean?

I may have missed the post or the way to change this.
But why are the time shown for posts on the same time as King Edward Point?
 
Jumping in this thread late, so apologies if this was addressed earlier. Why are some photos (inside threads) now only showing as thumbnails with a slide box around while others still show full size? I was specifically looking at the thread Ungulates In The Wild.
