Whether it is Medium Format, fullframe, APS-C, MFT or smaller formats. Digital or film. DPRF is a forum for everybody and for every format.
Enjoy this modern, easy to use software. Look also at our Reviews & Gallery!

A new beginning!

This site is really coming along well. Thank you for launching it so quickly after the announcement. I am hoping you will get rid of that ugly and tacky DPReview announcement soon that is on the home page.
 
I was thinking ... "you were? ... when did that start happening?" ....

DPReview was really cluttered up with a lot of content and functionality that made the user experience less than optimal. DPRForum is starting off with a very clean slate. Could features be added in a very controlled and thoughtful manner rather than try to duplicate DPReview? Maybe take some polls before adding things like Challenges and Buying Guides etc.
 
HI MNE9476,

:welcome-to-forum:

Yes. We started with an exact 1:1 copy of the forum structure of dpreview, to make it as easy as possible for all dpreview members to feel at home and have a smooth transition.

Once dpreview is closed and everybody is more familiar with this software, we can start to adapt/change things for the future. But we did not want to confront the users with both at the same time, new forum software and new structure.

yes we will also change things in the future. But we need first to settle a little bit. All mebers have to get used to this new software first. After everybody is feeling comfortable and at home, we can start discussing what could be improved.

Nothing is set in stone, but we should do these things thought-out. We have time. At least another 25 years :daumenhoch:
