Re: How about this to boost the DPNow forum?

I actually registered some time ago, but I tend to be a lurker on forums. It would really do me some good to post more photos to get some constructive feedback rather than worrying about whether Olympus will continue with 4/3rds.

I think this is now my sixth post so I can now post some images.

Re: How about this to boost the DPNow forum?

Pleased that we're persuading more lurkers to to get involved

The forum used to attract around a hundred members to log in daily. That's the target to achieve so that we can move to a further stage of boosting activity here.

I mean just look at what Horacio has posted here: http://dpnow.com/forum2/showthread.php?t=13883 A visual feast!

I can now reveal the camera we are giving away - it's one of the new Olympus XZ-2 premium compacts:

Re: How about this to boost the DPNow forum?

The above two posts should be considered gibberish under rule 3 and not count :-) Whereas mine, being constructive and erudite obviously should.

Re: How about this to boost the DPNow forum?

See I was correct
Now only need to make couple of more posts and pics. Actually only half way there completing the task.
But still will wait a bit just in case before taking my camera to repairs - who knows I might get lucky

For your chance to win an Olympus camera that us currently secret, through Digital Photography Now, here are the rules:

1. The competition is a Prize Draw.
2. To be included in the Draw you need to:
a) Be a registered member of this forum (Digital Photography Now Discussion Forum).
b) Have participated in discussions by posting at least 10 new responses and/or starting new threads in the forum during September, with the closing of September being midnight UK time.
c) Have uploaded at least five new photos to the DPNow members photo gallery by the end of the month.
3. New threads and new posts must be relevant, involved, and meaningful to the forum topics where they are posted. In other words posting gibberish just to be eligible for the draw will not be acceptable.

4. There is one prize, which will be revealed before the end of September, which is a camera manufactured by Olympus of specification unknown for the time being.

5. There is no cash alternative to the prize.

6. The prize draw will take place in the first week of October and the winner will be notified and revealed on the same day.

7. There is no restriction on the country or residency of any potential winners, but the winner is liable for any taxes or duties that may be applied locally if the camera has to be shipped to a country outside of the UK.

8. Availability of the camera depends on normal manufacturing and marketing factors.

9. Digital Photography Now reserves the right to alter or modify these rules at any time.

If you have any questions, just let me know!

But the main thing is - use this wonderful resource we have here in our forum and user galleries and maybe, just maybe, you could be in for a big surprise!

Ian
Hi all, because of Photokina and the lateness in getting this initiative going, I have decided to extend the finishing date to the end of October.

We haven't really promoted this properly and the whole point is to rev-up the DPNow forum and I don't think we have given the initiative the exposure required. More clarification will follow later today.

Ian

Re: How about this to boost the DPNow forum?

Damn, I was hoping to get this before my holiday!!

By the way this site seems to be running very slowly today. I have checked out four-thirds user which seems fine. Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?
