Where is the promised moderation in dpreview fora?
Mar 18, 2012

Some time ago dpreview announced that they would start moderating the fora (actually through a group of volunteers).

Now would be a good time. Camera manufacturers are introducing new models. This seems to have triggered quite an uptick in the insanity typical of dpreview's fora. It's still the work of a minority, but it is a very vocal minority.

I don't get it. Knowledgeable photographers leave because they have no interest in brand wars (who would blame them) The discussions are less and less interesting. We loose, but so does dpreview. Or does dpreview have no true interest in its fora, it's just some kind of advertising tool?

Time to get serious, about it. We're thankful for the resource that dpreview provides. But the fora would benefit greatly from a very moderate amount of moderation (!). I urge the owners of the site to please act accordingly.
