Baseman: There are only a couple of options I would like to see.
1) The option to let the OP remove a thread started by the OP 2) The option by the OP to lock a thread so no further posts can be made
Far too often I've seen threads where the topic goes way off in left field having nothing to do with the OP's original post.
The above options I've mentioned I do hope you heavily consider their importance.
Think I have to disagree with both those suggestions. Removing and locking threads is a job of the moderators. It is up to the OP to think before starting a thread (or responding to posts). The OP cannot change his mind later and just decide to delete the thread.
GodSpeaks: Let's not do popups on a mouse over. Those are annoying at the best of times, but to have it on forum threads would be a nightmare.
Finger over? :-)
GodSpeaks: Will the update now support the full width of my screen?At the monent, the forums take up only about 50% of my screen width.
What + key? I have no + key on my screen.
If you are talking about magnifying/enlarging my screen, that is *NOT* what I am talking about.
Jonathan Mac: Please make the flat view the default. It currently isn't if you go to a thread from the main DPR page (the most popular threads). I find the non-flat view absolutely useless and I don't know why it even exists.
The changes look good in general though.
While others think the flat view is 'absolutely useless'.Please retain the current default.

Bill Bentley: Brilliant! I especially like the "hover over message" and image linking features. It might seem like censorship, but I think that any message that receives 10+ thumbs down should be automatically deleted.
Personally I do not think we should have thumbs up OR thumbs down. Such rating systems will be very badly abused by the trolls and fanboys.And it *IS* censorship.Personally I absolutely hate the mouse over popups, so I say no to that *feature* too.
Absolutic: also is it still going to be that you can only edit your post only once and also only during the first 10 or 15 minutes, or you finally will let people edit their posts at any point?
The time limit is fine, but maybe could be extended to 30 or even 60 minutes.But a single edit is not fine. Even though I read what I wrote prior to posting, I still often manage to miss something (usually spelling). And even after editing I have on occasion spotted an additional error.So it would be nice if one could do multiple edits within the alotted time.Plus, a spell checker would be nice. :-)
Deleted1929: Any way to disable the hovering previews ?
I find them distracting elsewhere as if you just leave your mouse parked in the wrong place all of a sudden opening a thread gets you a preview and you've to move it again.
Any more info on the moderation system ?
Yes, If you won't actually eliminate the mouse over popups, then at least allow the individual user to disable them.
Diasfrom Brasil: What I like in Fredmiranda and would like to see hear is that once you open the first post you can read all the posts without having to open one by one.
Yeah, try FLAT VIEW.
JackM: These forums are some of the meanest on the internet. You should prohibit anonymity. Make everyone register with a facebook, linked-in, myspace, twitter, or G+ account, or their own professional photography website.
But this probably makes too much sense.
And you really think those accounts (ie: FB) are real?Guess you have missed the news about all the fake accounts.

Lyndsay Williams: I designed the original version of this, Sensecam for Microsoft, in 1999. for people with memory problems and dementia. I wonder why this version is is so expensive? We always had the problem that the temperature sensor measures close to the temperature of the user (as on chest) not the ambient temperature. I wonder how this has been solved.
I had the same problem with a watch that told the current temp. :-)
Marty4650: This could be the perfect "red light camera" that could automatically report your speedometer to the proper authorities!
And it could show exactly where you were, and which subversives you were meeting with!
Could this explain why Homeland Security has ordered nineteen million of them?
OK... just kidding :)
I think they would need 200 plus million. Right? Of course, getting everyone to wear thier's could be a bigger problem.
Has Sony solved the overheating problem?Do they still have the worldwide 30 minute recording limit?No 1080P30.How long is it going to take Sony to make NEX viable (for video users)?
For the last few days the response time of this site has been all over the map. It frequently goes catatonic (non responsive) for up to minutes at a time.
Is this caused by your overhaul, and will response time be back to normal now (no more catatonic episodes)?
eddiephtgrphr: People will still buy them. A micro four thirds camera and a couple of decent lenses end up more expensive than amid range dslr.Ridiculous!
Actually, I think it was olympus, when first introducing the 4/3 system stated that smaller, lighter and cheaper were the goal.We really didn't get smaller and lighter until micro43 appeared, and we have never seen (nor are we ever likely to see) cheaper.
Valentinian: I don't have a 14mm prime lens... Will I buy this Schneider Kreuznach 14mm f2.0 ? Unfortunately no, because it will cost four times more than the Panasonic 14 mm f2.5 .Will I buy the Panasonic 14mm ? No, because I read on Lenstip.com that it has "monstrous distortion, huge vignetting.... (and) ...the image quality on the edge of the frame could have been better"Too bad nobody is making a 14mm/ f2.8 of decent quality at an affordable price.
You might want to rethink the Panasonic 14mm, and perhaps read a few more reviews.I have the Pany 14mm and it does NOT suffer from the problems you stated.Given the price of the Pany 14mm, I think it is a great lens.
GodSpeaks: I am so glad that this lens is NOT power zoom.
If you are shooting HD then you shouldn't be zooming while shooting anyway. Use the zoom to frame the shot, then start shooting. Don't use AF while shooting video either. NEX has it over micro43 here with peaking. It would be nice if Panasonic added peaking to their cameras.
abolit: 2.8 DOF for 4/3 is not the same as for full frame camera.Can' t see any advantages here. The background will be as sharp as the object.Leica 25 1.4 , olympus 12 2.0 & olympus 45 1.8 is better option even if it's not zoom.
It's because some people just need some reason to gripe.
