    Default How many Olympus forums do you subscribe to?

    Just want to begin by saying that this particular forum is my favorite largely because of the assembly of excellent posters many of whom are photo pros and the great advice. However, let's face it, many of you subscribe to other forums. What are they and why?

    For example some of mine are DPreview, Clubsnap, UK E-System User Group, & Four Thirds User Forum.

    Default Re: How many Olympus forums do you subscribe to?

    I am a forum bloke, I subscribe to several boards. Of those, two are of photographic interest. This is one, the other is Norwegian.

    I would like to get into more boards, but some boards have layouts I just can't stand - the Dark Side is one of those.

    If I find another board with good people, I'll consider joining. Thing is, I don't have the time. For me, I either commit to a board, like 4/3photo, or I don't at all.

    This one, Four Thirds User, dpgr (the largest Greek photography portal, with a respectable Oly population) and I consider registering in exxfriends. I had an account on the Dark Side but I let it die peacefully.

    This forum, the two UK based forums and the odd look at DPReview.

    Plus a car, and two hifi forums to round out my view of the world

    This is the only Oly forum I visit regular like. I stop in a photo.net once in a while, but tire of the constant CaNikon stuffing that goes on there. The have an Olympus forum, but it isnt real active, and seems to attract the drive by bashing of olympus by the CaNikon homies.

    This is the only one I subscribe to, and the only one I post on. I read others, like DPR, but the atmosphere is too argumentative for me.

    Wink Re: How many Olympus forums do you subscribe to?

    ...this is the only forum that I 'participate' in, I occasionally do some lurking on a few others, I used to participate over on the dark side, but I must have voiced a wrong viewpoint because I got the axe...
    ...occasionally I'll still go over there and lurk, just to see what other folks are saying...

    Just here. I subscribed to dpreview but haven't gone back for same reasons as others. Four Thirds User is good, but nothing unique compared to here so have just stuck with this one. In the end, it's a time thing. I need to take more photos and spend less time talking about it.

    Default This one and the "other"

    I like this one better, but the "other" is sometimes amusing to read through some of the threads where people get excited.

    The only drawback with this forum is that it can be really slow from the UK, almost unusable in the evenings.

    Default Re: How many Olympus forums do you subscribe to?

    This is the only forum I subscrib too, I participate in others as well.
    Lets see, there is the dark side, participation is mainly the two Weeklys I post in, other threads I participate in a limited fashion.
    4/3s user gets occasional participation too, but like here and others I just don't have the time to read every post, much less add to them.
    I guess I'm 90% lurker. Most of the time there are people more qualifide to help others or have already posted the same thing I would. Here this is especially true. Should a topic come up that I can help out on, I will.
    I have recently started posting in the FM macro world forum but even there just commenting on each post is very time consuming and most of the shots are far better than mine.

    I aso participate in a few hockey related boards as well as birder forums. One has to know where to find the birds to post in the Weeklys you know.
