In imminent future POTN will have a forum structure change which should be status quo for next few years. That is why the changes are somewhat bigger than we have done in previous facelifts. Reason for these changes are honoring member needs and wishes, support specific photography genre discussion (which act as easy to find source of knowledge in that area), and in share forums to make it easier to find where to post.

Here's the new deal:

Lens forum will have a new sub-forum where all lens archive threads (member submitted demo photos) will be moved, and renamed so that you get an easy to find list of all EF/EF-S lenses.

Canon EF and EF-S Lenses
Everything about lenses for Canon digital EOS system.
Sub-Forums: Lens Sample Photo Archive


News forum will be added. Rumors forums will be moved as sub-forum to that.

Photography Industry News
What is going on in world of photography. News and discussing the news.

Sub-Forums: Rumors


Talk About Photography forum will be made to a collection of topic forums, each share forum will have corresponding talk forum so that we'll get a nice collection of specialized info on specific shooting genres. The current "Talk About Photography" forum will be renamed to "General Photography Talk" and put with other sub-forums, so the new "Talk About Photography" will be only a forum container (not a forum per se).

Talk About Photography
Sub-Forums: General Photography Talk, People Talk, Kids & Pets Talk, Performing Arts Talk, Wedding and Other Family Events Talk, Glamour & Nude Talk, Sports Talk, Motorsports Talk, Birds Talk, Wildlife Talk, Nature & Landscapes Talk, Transportation Talk, Urban Life & Travel Talk, Astronomy & Celestial Talk, Macro Talk, Still Life, B/W & Experimental Talk, Competitions Talk

HDR sub-forum will be added under "RAW, Post Processing and Printing" forum.

RAW, Post Processing and Printing
All that you do after you shoot the images. Share your knowledge and tips on how to process your digital negatives to the extreme and how to produce those great looking prints. Discuss color management, printers, inks and papers. Use this forum also for computer hardware and backup system discussions.
Sub-Forums: HDR


Digital Video forum will be added.

Digital Video
Digital video recording is integral part of digital cameras. How to make better videos, how to edit, fix and present them.


Photo Sharing -section will have some new forums that has been wished for a long time, and some forums are merged and moved to make it more clear for the members where to post that photo.

People
Kids & Pets
Performing Arts
Wedding and Other Family Events
Glamour & Nude
Sports
Motorsports
Birds
Wildlife
Nature & Landscapes
Transportation
Urban Life & Travel
Astronomy & Celestial
Macro
Still Life, B/W & Experimental
Competitions

Each forum above will have a virtual sub-forum to corresponding Talk forum, so that it is easy to jump there and find it.

Then we will have a forum for all the collected info you need how to use POTN, and most useful informative threads. This will be maintained by mods, so you can not post there.

Forum FAQ - READ HERE FIRST (read only)
What is this forum all about? How do I post, browse and make the most out of it?

Exhibit Engine section will not be visible on front page any more, it will be accessible only with direct URL http://photography-on-the.net/forum/forumdis​play.php?f=93.

Also, order of main sections will be changed so that discussion forums are grouped closer together:

'Equipment Talk' section
'Sharing Knowhow' section
'Photo Sharing' section
'Marketplace' section
'Forum Feedback' section

We reserve the right to do changes to above plan :)

Exciting news!

Will you put a link to EE forum in the FAQ section? (to allow people who forgot to bookmark the link to find it...)

Could you make this post a sticky until the changes occur Pekka? Everything sounds very exciting and I'm looking forward to seeing how it all lays out. Thanks for all of your hard work and commitment to POTN's continued excellence.

Good news, Pekka. Nice to know we can change as the community grows and new specializations emerge.

Thanks!

There has been lot of internal discussion about adding other brand(s) to this forum, but the bottom line is there are tons of very good reasons against it. I can share the reasons later, but don't despair. There is another plan...

Nice structural and layout changes...anticipation feels good!
Keepping with the future and its vision for it is in the core of good leadership, and it is appreciated.
One more reason to have my daily dose of POTN for another 4 years:).

Thank you Pekka and Moderators.
