Welcome to the forum.
I have been a member since befóre PhotoRadar took over. I 'started out' here, when I took up digital photography, so to speak.
Over the years, I made many friends, some of whom have become relatively close.
When the site changed to PhotoRadar, many left, disappointed with the changes. I stayed on, but became less faithful over the years, nd joined other sites as well.
Losing your gallery twice in a relatively short time, is not something people take kindly to. Warning them that it is going to happen, does not make it that much more acceptable.
At the moment I'm having a love-hate relationship with the weekly competition; the only part of the site that I regularly visit nowadays.
I believe some changes were made to the galleries recently, but I haven't checked them out yet. I can't say I am particularly enamoured with the gallery system, but maybe it is better now, after the latest changes.
I am one of those people who regularly read the forums, but often can't be bothered to react, or even to sign in.
I realise this all sounds rather negative, but from a lively, friendly site, it has dwindled to a rather dull happening, even though some of the 'oldies'
are still around, and as helpful and friendly as ever.
So, you still got some of the foundations in tact, it's now up to you, to build it up again to something people cannot bear to stay away from!
Oh I use a Sony DSC-HX100V bridge camera!
Maybe I should explain, that 'Oldies' in this case, does not necessarily mean old in years, but highly experienced photographers, who often started out with film, but have embraced the digital age with gusto. This treasure trove of experience has been lost.
