    Like most forums there seems to be a mix of good and bad. All in all its an ok forum. Plenty of members but it turns over fairly slowly.
    By comparison this forum has less active members daily I think but the is far more active.
    The mods over there are a bit trigger happy too from what I can see.
    That's ok ... if I become familiar and confident with any members there thatI think could be better served here and fit in fine I'll quietly let them know

    Well, as we all know there are different types of models. If all models had small boobs poor Mr Heifner would be in trouble.

    I think people are too quick to judge sometimes and then it's just over reaction after that.

    We've all seen it

    I can see my presence over at that forum being disliked again soon

    Some people are so blunt it's ridiculous ... and the admin/mods over there hold up comments 'that are not sugar-coated' as gold even if they are directed at a newbie and the newbie is offended.

    Sometimes forums develop a 'spirit' ... a way of doing things ... usually pushed along and kept alive by the dominant members and mods that becomes the norm and accepted.

    I guess in some ways that could be true of this forum as well but I hope it's in a more constructive manner.

    Be interesting to see how my last comment is accepted over there when I said not sugar coating is fine IF the delivery is handled well and criedit is also given where due.

    Even if I don't particularly like or have much constructive to say about someones photo I do, at least, try to find something positive to say about it also. There's usually something I think the photographer did right even if it's nothing more than their vision for the photo.

    I think I've seen two instances here where a member got offended over critique in the time I've been here and neither I think were the fault of the people giving the critique. Says a lot for this place because I can find similar issues on other forums within weeks.

    Oh man ... at the risk of making this rant ... I put up my Reeds & Pads photo at the local Brisbane forum and after a few days (3 days) there was no comments.

    So ... deciding to try what we are doing here with missed threads ... I gave them a nudge ... just something simple ...

    "A few views but no comments. I'm guessing this one doesn't appeal to anybody then?"

    And that drew the same mod that had ago at me the other day

    Apparently I shouldn't be posting so much and my sig is too loud. Same sig exactly as I use here.

    I also got one comment ... from one of their 'leading critique experts' apparently .... and his advice was I had too many elements in the photo I should have only included one lillypad. What the? Are they so far behind REAL photographic critique that they can't even give something remotely productive?

    It's been an education but I'm about ready to tell them to jam their forum as far up their stuck up, arrogant, abusive butts as a long, hot, pointed stick will get it.

    The critiques here are simply outstanding most of the time. Whether from experienced or learners, here ... people give some real thought to their comments and, just as importantly, are open minded.

    Pat yourselves on the back!!

    WTH? since when do BB mods complain that there's too many posts???
    I've never heard of such silliness.

    My temptation would be to post about 100 pictures. a day.

    LOL I'm with you on that one Bambi! I'd take the same shot over and over at different angles and post them all!
    Really sound like a bunch of pretentious pompous a-holes who prop themselves up by making others feel smaller.
    I call that a bully in my book!

    I can't but agree with you Casil. You seem to have found the words that describe exactly what I think about this situation. LOL
