    This is *excellent* information! I only wish there were a photo with it so I could Pin it to my Photography board on Pinterest and refer back to it often.

    I have a long way to go so I'll be looking at these for guidance. Thank you so much for posting this.

    Well said, OHK. I'm a member of five forums including this one (the others are for my car, my fiancee's car, my motorcycle, and my profession), and the well-moderated forums are the most enjoyable and useful by a long shot. (Especially among the vehicle forums... we're lucky that most photographers here aren't 17 years old with a chip on their shoulder.) Keep up the good work, I like it here.

    I have to get more involved in here. Well, at least read more of the blogs. Then maybe I can keep up with everything. I have learned from an early age that fighting and yelling isn't the way to go.( One reason I don't remark on them in here unless I'm joking about the situation) I have always either turned the other cheek or just walked away. In here all I have to do is ignore or block.
    As for Helene's dinner party analogy I would be the one late to the dinner due to a long work day. But , would still bring the desert or more drinks. whichever is needed. I am looking for a quiet conversation or some laughter after that long day not a fight or argument. ( I get that enough at work)

    As logic & statistics show, the larger a board grows, the more diverse it gets as lots of people with varying thought processes express their opinions in their own styles.
    Some may like it, some may not but it is important for members to be able to draw the line someplace.

    From my brief stint here (i am not a member anywhere else, this was the first forum i joined & have never felt a need to look elsewhere), this definitely resembles a world that we wish we lived in....
    Where everyone is happy to help others & there is always more than one helping hand.
    no sarcastic belittling comments (at least not all that many ), no personal remarks, no one trying to put another down or no one trying to prove they are better than the other.

    BUT, i believe that every member here, at least the senior ones to really take it upon themselves to try to maintain this culture for future members to join, learn & enjoy as we have and make sure that this place remains the way it is, even if one day this forum grows to a million members or more (that would be good, wouldn't it JDEG )

    Honestly, this is the nicest group of people I've ever come across on a forum, any type of forum, and it is a priviledge to be here, and to learn from such a dedicated group of Nikon enthusiasts.

    Brilliant analogy --- a dinner party. Well done, Helene!

    I understand, and your efforts to change "old habits", at least once in a while, is much appreciated.

    I was trying to drink something when I read "guests are allowed to double-dip, pick their noses at the table, burp, fart or sneeze while going through the buffet" Now I have to go clean my laptop.

    Very well written and echos how I think most people feel around here. I know that I do.

    Have to admit not been here long but find it very friendly,i do belong one other 2D photography forum but i stopped going on because there only interest seams to be the more expensive lenses and one upmanship on how many hairs you can count on a picture of a flys leg.
    We would all possibly like to spend thousands on lenses and cameras but the majority of members here realise its not possible for most photographers,its the joy of catching that moment that matters.
