While I suspect it won't work, and won't be done, I can certainly see the point.

This forum used to be far more technically astute in years past.   Certainly at a higher level than I typically can contribute.   Then the D700 came out, and I could see the level of expertise dropping.    Now the D600 is out, and the level has dropped again, and does at times seem more like a D70-D90 forum than a D1-D3 forum.

I see a pretty simple correlation.  When the price of the cameras in the forum dropped to $3000, a lot of 'strong amatuers' and fair amount of 'wealthy hobbiests' started posting, as opposed to the mostly pros previously contributing.   And some of those pros stopped visiting.

Obviously fora should be stratified according to price of camera. $3000 and above, $2999 and below. That should make most people happy.

I can see people saying I paid over the odds ($3000) for their D3200. 

Saying that.. no one except a single digit D* owner could join.. even a D800 I under $2800 on Nikon USA site!.. (sound of wind rushing through empty streets)

There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':
