petestone: So let's see.....

Not only does the user created content get dumped to the bottom of the "Articles" section without any category organisation.....but the tags don't work!
DPreview is really doing all they can to encourage users to post content....don't you think? I know things are still "in beta"....but how hard is it to get things right?
Right now....it's looking like a rather amateurish effort!

On Pete's Travel Tip #1 • Time Exposures by Day article (5 comments in total)

The designation N.D. 3.0 comes from the fact that 0.3 density equals 1 stop light reduction. Therefore 3.0 would represent 10 times this amount of light reduction.
Using a filter like this in daylight to capture lightning is an interesting idea....
Let me know if you give it a try!

petestone: Alright...I just noticed that my article is visible below the categories list under "community articles" without any reference to the category it was written for.
So what's the point in listing it in any category when it is written?
This seems rather pointless.........!
Either respect the writers who post helpful articles for free by placing them in the appropriate categories.....or create a " community category" section for them
as you do for your previous authors.
This seems like a significant oversight!

Thanks, Simon.
I think this new "user generated" content shouldn't just be all jumbled together. The easier it is for people to find specific info on what they want....the more people will write it.

How long before an article is "published" before it shows up.....?
It seems to take longer than a forum post......mine is still not visible hours later....
Thanks,

The "tags" link in the summary edit box isn't working.......I'm using Safari & Chrome on a Mac and the link goes nowhere.....
