We have decided to move the threads from Camera samples forum back to the respective gear forums (mostly Canon EOS). About the only thread that will not be moved is http://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php?t=1308983
Why? For several reasons:
Virtually all threads here are mostly discussion, and it is now very different to Lens samples forum where the intent of posting samples is clear and better in control overall.
Even bigger reason is that these threads give sense of "brand unity" and brand activity which is now spread out too much and hard to find for the brand enthusiasts. The reason for multiple brand forums was not to mix it all together, the feel of belonging to the brand community is very important and must be cherished. For example Sony guys are very active in their area with couple similar threads (http://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php?t=1430203 is one of the fastest threads here) and I really would not want to dilute those into Samples forum.
All followed threads will keep on being followed, only thing that changes is the home forum. Only side effect might be: if you have filtered out (hid) Canon EOS forum then you won't see the threads until you unhide it: http://photography-on-the.net …fyeo.php?show=forumfilter
The moves will happen quite soon. If I move the threads before version 1.4 is installed (any day now) you'll see that in new posts and FYEO listings the source forum is still this one, that bug is fixed in 1.4.
Thread starter will get a Heads Up after a thread has been moved.
