What I think would be an order of magnitude more constructive would be to have the search function completely revamped to make it easier to find what you are interested in. Trying to achieve a change along these lines would be, in my mind, a much more constructive and community minded pursuit than the self-interested pursuit of a single, more exclusive, forum that would only benefit a relatively small number of community members.

The search functionality is something (talking from experience here) one would occasionally use to find something specific, not every week to find posts related to their camera. That's not user friendly at all.

The thought of creating a more exclusive forum to serve a relatively small number of community members only is also pretty shallow. I strongly believe in the end it will be of greater perpose, also for the "non-elitist" as you would call it. I mean, it's not prohibited for a non 1d user to ask something in that forum. When i was still shooting with my digital rebel, i always read posts on the 1d forum to learn more, but since that forum became an every man's forum, those educational posts are gone. Ohh well, maybe that's the way things go and it means you either find your way somewhere else (like many did) or just become a dormant lurker keeping your idea's and opinions to yourself.

Making a moment last forever

You're exactly right. The 1D forum used to be a place to learn and to find answers to more technical questions.

For this moderator to comment that 1D users are "elitist", for wanting a forum that is more in tune with their photographic knowledge and experience, shows the extent of his ignorance and that of DPR regarding the purpose of desiring to have a separate forum.

And for him to think that the 6D belongs because it has a full frame sensor is the epitome of ignorance. People were screaming for a separate 1D forum many years before the 1DX arrived. The point of having a separate forum had nothing to do with full frame vs. crop...considering that 1D & 1Ds users wanted a 1 series forum that would include both...seven years ago.
