After you wait patiently 60 days and post 25 posts you think it's ok to sell equipment in the classified section. I did this and responded to PMs regarding the equipment. I thought this was OK and polite to do so. Unfortunately one of the moderators took offence and simply banned me from the classified section for a month (during which time I had to post regularly in other areas to prove something). Apart from obviously reading all my private messages, I felt that I was being victimised by... (read more)

There are a few good members but the majority are very opinionated, arrogant and are exceptionally good at portraying bravery and sprouting threats from their armchairs at current events. You may be able to find some good information but it is always ruined by the same old members and moderators who think they are the ultimate authority on everything in life and flood the threads with drivel. If ever there was a place with rapid fire criticism of everything then this is it and coming from... (read more)

One of the worst moderated forum I have ever visited. The moderators/owners of this forum are highly opinionated, and always willing and ready to jump at anyone not agreeing to their opinion. Best avioded. (read more)

I was a little too defensive when I posted my first thread. Did a dummy spit with one bloke, who I thought was taking the pee. But I was wrong perhaps. Did get trolled by an idiot on that thread who wouldn't let things go, even after an apology. Anyway, apart from perhaps 1 0r 2 idiots, this forum is great. Moderators are very firm, but very fair. There is great advice from experienced amateurs and experienced pros. Yes you will get a hard time if you post something on the lines like " I'm... (read more)

A highly cliquish photography forum with far to many moderators.
There are far better photography forums out there which are better organised and run than this one.
Posting images can be a problem as well , if you go over the maximum 800px x 800px the image police will turn them into links instead.
In this day and age of large widescreen monitors and mega pixal cameras, those allowed image dimensions are far to restrictive. (read more)

Good community, large user base so lots of different opinions. Moderation is firm but fair, ive never had any posts deleted without notification or good reason, only when i posted in the sales forum when i wasnt supposed to.
Good advice from some good people, a lot of pros with lots to offer people starting out.
Overall a very good site, that isnt full of know-alls and big heads (read more)

The initial impression of this photography website is a good one. It has a thriving membership and a lot of helpful information. After some time here you start to see it as it is, a bit cliche. Whilst most members are very polite and helpful, a few are intolerant and often rude I find.
The admin and mods are prone to running this site with an "I'm in charge I can ban you" attitude which is fair enough, they can... but I often find my posts deleted without explanation as far as I am... (read more)

Members seem to be helpful when questions are posted. There is a full spread of users from beginners to Proffessionals. All topics from Retouch to printing are covered. And they have a section on the site for arranging local meets through out the country which looks to be well used and is a good idea.
I think it looks to be a great site and will re-visit once I have purchased my camera that I am saving for. I am sure I will get all the help I will be needing there. (read more)
