And yet here you are!

Come on folks - all you need do is type 1Dx in the search box at the top of the forum ... and presto!

It couldn't be simpler!

I may have already mentioned this before , but even for 5/6 series users, the topics are littered with many off-topic subjects like lenses and monitors and so forth as if being a specific owner of a body endows one with special knowledge of monitors. With so many off-topic threads, it makes it time consuming to scan the list for relevant topics. I can't imagine having to scan this same list of topics looking for 1 series topics. Why ask the 1 series folks to do that?

Plus, there's the tendency for knuckleheads who don't own said seires feeling empowered to comment inanely on subjects they have no idea about simply because they own a camera with the same size sensor.

If DPR stubbornly insists on commingling the forum, maybe they could install filters in the members' profiles or at the forum header that would filter out everything but topics on specific bodies. This would require pretty accuarte tagging though.
