Forum split II
Jan 15, 2009

The first tread filled up real quick with some fairly interesting debate, and with already over 100 votes (which within the realm of real active posting users in this forum seems quite good) we can think that at least we will be able to expect an official comment on this from the forum owners and lay this issue to rest, one way or the other.

So once again, those who would like to see a forum split, a separate 1D and 5D forums, please sign the following petition (which can be done anonymously)

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/1D_5D_Split/signatures.html

Let's keep this is a cordial healthy issue, both sides want what they think is the best for the forums, so, there is something in common, remember that.

Someone asked:

But I want to read about both series of cameras...

Answer: You still can, the information and posts will still be there, only each in it's right place

Someone asked:

The 1D forums would be empty because 1D users almost don't post

Answer: Well a lot of good 1D posters stopped posting and left when the 5D was merged, and said they would come back someday if this would change (and I hope they would). The forums were alive before the 5D came along, and they would continue to be, there are a lot of eager 1D owners out there, to have their own corner to post.

Someone asked:

How will the owners of DPReview know that the signers of that petition are bona fide genuine signers, and not the same person making multiple signatures (particularly the MANY anonymous ones)? It would have carried more weight had it been signed on their own forum, where they could check the bona fides quite easily. Why should they believe it when they cannot verify it?

Answer: Even anonymous votes have to enter a name and email, they just choose not to have it displayed in purblic, and the petition is set that only one vote per IP/user is allowed, and of course, there are raw logs to be supplied when the time comes. so they CAN verify it.
