It can be very difficult as a Moderator to separate the ulterior from the genuine concern.

In the years that I was operating workshop weekends I made sure I never linked to my website or the sales page here on EPZ ( and as a competition sponsor and directory client, I was able to).but a blog...yes I would have.

"You mention popularity. Where did you get that from? I merely mentioned that we Mods are damned if we do and damned if we don't. Nothing to do with being overly-sensitive."

....which is likely to make you unpopular with those who are unhappy with your decision.

HDR has it's place IMO, and should be used as a tool for getting desired results, much in the same way that we use polarizing filters, ND grads etc. ect.

I have never used it for my personal photography work, and rarely use it for my wedding or portrait work. However, I recently took on a commercial job for a project management firm looking after builds for a well known Piza Parlor and found HDR invaluable for the interior photographs.

I've never tried HDR. Perhaps I'm missing something, but I'd only do it the easy way rather than invest in more programs.

Quote:All posts, regardless of origin appear under the recent activity if they are fresh enough, so I don't really get your point here.

As soon as someone posts to a thread, it appears under "Recent activity."
Ergo, regardless of which forum body you hide it under, it will always be prominent. In which case, your adjustment to its pigeon hole is meaningless.

Oh, and I got sacked as a Mod on another site for being too argumentative, so I know what it's like. Grin

Same here and Ade's blog, before all this silliness took over, had given the inspiration to have a go.

Hide? Pigeon-holing?
Jeez, do you really think it is better to have one big stew called "The Forum" where everything is posted, without being divided up into manageable sub-sections?

Whatever...

That's precisely my point.

That's how the "Recent activity" section works, except that the "everything" is just the most recent stuff, regardless of which of the manageable sub-sections it's pigeon-holed in.
