Very quiet here !

Hi everyone.

Where have you all gone ? Anyone travelled away ? Got any photos to show ?

How is the weather in your area ? Snow ? Sunny ? Wet ?

All we seem to get on the south coast is rain. Did have three very nice cold, but sunny days last week.
But mainly we get wet days. Very depressing.

Anyone seen any flowers growing ?

Snowdrops ? Crocuses ?

There are some Daffodils in flower, just down the road here.

Anyone got any trips, holidays planned ?

What new ?

Re: Very quiet here !

I know the editor has had other commitments over the past few months and am hopeful we may see more equipment/accessory reviews soon.

Re: Very quiet here !

I am surprised at 1/4 second this turned out reasonably well - it was taken in 2001 on a Fujifilm FinePix 4700Z - a 2.2megapixel camera.

Sorry for lack of visits but bogged down with Hospital and Doctors appointments, Plus we have the workmen starting tomorrow refurbishing our bathroom. Going to take ten days they say. Total strip out and convert to wet room. Will visit when I can.

Nothing to apologise for, Ron.

We all have busy times now and then, and it sounds like you have your hands full at the moment.

Good luck with your health and the refit.

Re: Very quiet here !

I pop in... but haven't taken any photos for a week (except with my phone) so nothing to share. All that will change this weekend - first wedding of the year.

Re: Very quiet here !

I am still relatively new but i did notice that not so many people are active. Maybe an addition of new threads would help? But then again this is just a question.

Garry, if you think it's quiet in here, pop into FTU, it makes this forum look busy ! Before Christmas, FTU was clinging onto the last vestiges of life with a few members contributing to the Salon Photo Contest. Sadly this was effectively killed off as the then "current host" objected to "comments not aligned to the thread" and closed the contest. FTU now receives around one genuine photography related post a week and even seems to have been deserted by Admin. with obvious Spam posts and reported update issues not being attended to.

You are doing a great job here in attempting to generate interest in the forum and should be applauded for your efforts. I have no idea why numerous fora seem to lose popularity but it does seem to be a current trend and possibly reflected in the case of DPNow being quiet. Hopefully in this instance it will just be a seasonal effect due to the weather and the fact many members like myself have chosen to hibernate till spring

Whatever the reason, hopefully, your efforts will succeed, resulting in increased activity from the membership and preventing this forum going down the same slippery slope as FTU.

I wish you the very best of luck.

Kind regards,

John
