    It isn't you. What you see is a combination of both - ppl leaving and newbees posting snapshots thinking that their work is top notch

    Probably because the forum made the smartest move :)er:) and made it so that nude photos are not allowed on the forum, or something like that.

    i HIGHLY doubt that a thing as simple as that drew away so many GOOD photographers yet attracted a bunch of point n shoot kings.

    :lmao: P&S kings. i love it! and you would be suprised how many people did because of that. Go look at that thread. When I posted my disapproval on it, I got like 20 PMs from people saying that they're leaving to go someplace else and blablabla..:confused:

    Actually it was the most recent deathnail and it did
    A bit of backstory:

    1) A few members requested a nude subsection of the site and the admin agreed to create it

    2) the nude section was infact a big success and was turning out to be quite a well running part of the site

    3) One morning the admin remove access to the section and announce that NSFW posts will no longer be allowed on TPF

    4) That was all the admin did - there was no consultation nor expansion of the reasons to the membership nor attempt to get a working workaround put in place. The reason we have deduced is that one of the advertisers disputed having nudes on the site and the admin listened

    Essentially quite a lot of members have finally had enough of an administration (note administration not moderators) who are essentially just using the site for ad income and putting little to no effort in for the membership even to go as far as to not even expand upon their offical reasoning for changes to the site.
    There is a lot more from the site growing in size and attracting more new members (mostly a result of good google listings, good titling and being a large forum - as well as teh wave of new amateurs that digital has brought) thus diluting the overall content (well in the view of some who can't ignor the beginners areas).
