benvendetta's right TP is TalkPhotography forum where you are moderated within an inch of your life.

There will be no joining up and posting your adverts for sale in there and when you finally meet the criteria to do so watch out for all the petty rules you have to comply with too!

I was on the other foot where I was interested in buying a lens off a chap and another member brought up the fact that the said lens was on ebay and that it had been bought and sold a few times over a few months and wanted to know why, I linked to the auction and got my post deleted and a reprimand! Ok I could have been clearer in my post but the post was relevant. Needless to say I didn't buy the lens.

It is very Nikon and Canon orientated but I hide in the film and conventional area and the mods don't wander in too much, though they did the other night and suspended one of the most regular users!

To be fair to the mods on TP there is a huge amount of traffic on that site and a large number of hooligans. Where they do fall down is by sometimes being inconsistent and unfair with, seemingly, a little favouritism creeping in. I wouldn't relish the job, though.

This site is much more civilized, friendly and photography orientated - have you tried actually posting a picture on TP? :eek:

No surprise that I've clocked up over 10 times the number of posts here and on FT User than I have on TP! However, TP is good when you want to hone your debating skills or "ruffle a few feathers," although of course I would never advocate trolling. :D

It's the inconsistency of the site that makes it poor to be honest. There is blatant favouritism, an inconsistent approach to who is allowed to do and say certain things, and who isn't. Some people are so rude and arrogant it is unreal - especially pro togs who are so far up their own backsides with their self importance and egos.

If you want a laugh, have a read of any wedding thread where people look for help and guidance, and you'll be in hysterics. Guaranteed to get the pros or wanna be pros saying... don't bother, get a pro in to do it.

Don't worry David, I'm only impolite to those who are impolite themselves, and we haven't got any like that here! :D

I only ever post in the image editing section on that site and then usally just to show up the Photoshop "experts" when they say something like you cannot do that in LR/Elements...then when you prove them wrong there is a defining silence..great fun.:D

Was invited to join up to a new site and registered last night......got into a long winded "discussion" about uploading tonight and got a RED warning that I could not do any more postings so deleted my membership....but they still said THEY would have to agree for me to do that.
I am no longer a member..for now.A friend in work knows one of the Mods and I am sure they will soon find out THEY were at fault..he he.

Inserted a great big whisk into a hornets' nest, and pressed the "on" button by the sound of things.

Just tell them the Zuiko lenses are the best there are and nothing gets close, I did once, I think they just changed topic as there was nothing to debate lol.

I think that is something which is secretly, if not openly, acknowledged by informed users of any brand and as such is not really contentious. They'd far rather talk about noise and DOF. :D
