I'm a Samsung admirer and enthusiast since the NX-10 but if this won't take the Pancake lens of the originals I'm just not interested in yet another new one.

A little bit constructive I hope....

What exactly is the purpose or worth of the 'Votes' space taken up against each and every post in all Forum threads...

If the style of the "old" Forum is to be carried on...NO POSTS are ever going to be removed by age so will last forever...votes simply do not matter..the heading of a post probably decides more than anything whether a person looks at it.. and more to the point here.. the space wasted right now on the "Votes" column could and should be used to show the NAME of the O.P. as it always has done. Seeing the name by having to change to the full expanded view is no immediately then lose the compactness of the listings..bad enough as it is now, with the line spacing being so much more than it used to be.

Can't we go back to the old style in this respect.. heading of post AND name of poster.

Is it possible please that when I type ANY reply or indeed make a NEW post to a new I ALWAYS have to continually keep UN-ticking that dratted box at the bottom of the post, to say or indicate that I do NOT want any note if a response comes in.

Why cannot I UNTICK the box and it then be treated as UNTICKED for every post I make thereafter..until I myself may decide otherwise..

Same with Profile ALREADY shows a tick/cross in EVERY box saying that I do NOT want notifications..yet my incoming mailbox STILL keeps getting what is a useless mail-note .. of which I have quite enough already, as do so many..with the blasted rubbish mails these days.
