    Could perhaps be the forum title including the words 'Photo Gallery'. But that could just be me and that whole concept of 'reading comprehension'. Call me strange.

    Some photos, not 16 threads. Not repeat threads from the same posters, about the same stuff, I think that we need to separate them, because when people have actual questions, the thread just gets pushed down under an onslaught of pic threads.

    At one point in time there were separate threads. Beginners posted photos in the beginner forum anyway. Beginners also posted very beginner photos in the main photo galleries and people with much higher post counts found that to be objectionable as well.

    It is polite to keep your crusades to one thread, though.

    Separate issues, that one was apparently a discussion. This on the other hand is a "beginner question".

    Then I suppose the question has been answered.... it is a discussion forum as well as a photo gallery as posted above :)

    Thats fine, however a separate gallery, and question forum would be logical,organized, and actually help get questions answered.

    I believe that was discussed in your previous thread as noted above and the reasons they chose to keep it the wat it is :)

    lol new member crusades are funny, especially when it's lost from the get go, when it obviously says photo gallery right in the title. I never understood trying to change things as a newcomer. Why don't you just settle down, get acquainted w/ the people and practices and go with the flow. Some people just feel the need to change things.

    Anyway, this part of the forum is for beginner questions AND pictures...whether its 90% questions and 10% pictures or 10% questions and 90% picture threads...it doesn't matter, because it still falls under what this forum is meant for.

    If you don't like it, you can just skip those threads..they're obvious to spot. Granted, I wish there was just one thread for noob c&c, but i'm not about to try to rally people to my cause, as they're all within their right to post them.
