    I believe that once the camera manufactures are able to get their production up we will see a price drop on used equipment. Remember most F mount lenses still work on the Z cameras with the FTZ adapters, there are also adapter to use F mount on other systems.

    The server really isn't the issue, as much as the software is.... Replacing the server won't improve anything without someone spending a boatload of time fixing, adjusting, and tweaking the software... In fact, if someone has limited resources and time availability, simply replacing the server will be a disaster.

    Having been with Canon for nearly two decades, I feel you get better deals and more for your money when buying Nikon used equipment. My very first Nikon purchase was the D7100 which I bought VG condition for only 238. I guarentee you won't find a similar Canon dslr at that price. I also picked up a Nikon 300mm for 400 when the Canon equivalent is selling around 600.
    Of course supply and demand really set the prices so it may vary from area to area.

    We have a little over 36,000 members who have registered and never posted. I don't think this is unusual, and this message board is pretty small compared to some of the other boards out there. Also, platforms like Facebook have caused many people to abandon message boards. That and life in general keeps people from posting.

    I belonged to a very active hobby board that lost a good many members thanks to Facebook. Members who were on there for years just quit posting, and people who lived in the same locations started their own groups. I know, I belong to 2 of the local groups and rarely post on that board any longer. Much larger message boards are thriving. Cloudy Nights, for example, is one of the few astronomy boards out there. There are so many people posting on it now that you are lucky to get any attention on a post.

    One of the boards I belonged to had a bot that cleaned out inactive accounts. People who registered and never bothered to log back on or post got deleted. I have no idea if that is beneficial or not.

    I like this board. Most people are nice, helpful and supportive, and my posts don't get buried immediately thanks to hundreds of posters. Sometimes I have a problem posting, but not often enough to make me leave the board. Is it a compatibility problem with Safari? I don't know.

    BTW, some of the 'active users' are people who join the board just to use private messaging. In this case, I can understand why a bot might clean out people who never posted a thing. They are just taking up space and using the board for communications they don't want on an e-mail.

    Some folks post a question and never come back after they post it.

    The software for this site is ancient, and that causes all sorts of problems.

    I don't think that there are suddenly way less people shooting Nikon, and I don't think that has anything to do with our membership here. Look at Back Country Gallery's forum, a great number of the members there are Nikon users, and you'll see there are plenty around that could become members here if they so choose. You will also see an up to date software platform for the forum there, and if you take a look you'll see the difference between the way their forum works and the features it has compared to this one. This forum is badly outdated and has many problems in compatibility with various browsers and current operating systems.

    Honestly, I stay active here because I like the people. Otherwise I would have given up a while ago.
