View Full Version : ROLL CALL
I cannot believe only 41 to 45 people are monitoring this forum daily. It is time for a roll call.
Check in and leave your name or nickname. We will see how many show up over the next several days.

What he said.
Here! (And I just found out that messages have an 8 character minimum.)
Here I sits,
Are you taking those numbers from the email-notification count when you post a message? I check in here pretty regularly, but I don't use that feature.
Pretty new here, but I check in all the time. I'd post more, but nobody wants to hear about how eight 16x20s fell into the tub after the drying racks (window screens) slipped off the top of the shower door two days ago. Or how I found the cat drinking out of the archival print washer that was running on the deck. Or my mishaps with split grade printing (most recent magic bullet). Nah, mostly I just read and learn.
How's it going, eh?
Read several times daily, but seldom reply to anything. Learn some, trash some.
Daily, almost since the beginning (1999).
Here, except when I`m not...Sorry, wierd sense of humor...
Here!(More or less)
Heilsid öllum heima rómi thídum.....
I check in multiple times a day - love this forum!
Check several times a week and sometimes contribute.
David A. Goldfarb
Testing, one, two. . . testing. . .
(I don't use the e-mail notification feature either).
For the time beeing, almost daily. But this may vary. This is an incredibly informative forum, and I'll use the opportunity to express a huge THANK YOU to the initiatior and all the contributors.
Out here lurking on a Saturday night, glad my pc does not have a breathalizer
I'm not here, never have been, and never will be . . . and if that makes sense to you, you're nuttier than I am :-)
Up for a short time for air!
I'm here daily...you just never see me...
I'm here also.
Long time lurker. This s my second post.
Always here. Always reading. Never speaking.
Jason Greenberg Motamedi
Seems to me that this question could be answered more or less accurately by the administrators.
In any case, I usually browse through every day or so.
Present! I'm a nOOb as the kids would say. But I am here, such as I am.
I refuse to participate in polls. So, please destroy this posting before reading it.
Like Calamity Jane, I'm not here either. And I don't come here two or three times a day.
When I see some of the dumb stuff I say in here, the idea of a USB breathalizer seems like a pretty good idea.
...and gentlemen in England now abed,
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon St. Crispin's day.
Everyday, at least one thread that's either insightful or funny or makes me want to rip my hair out.
Huh? where am I?.......
Happy to say I continue my education here daily (....really, guys! (and gal!))...
Here almost daily. Beats working.
Usually look in a couple of times a day.
The list is growing.....
Fresh from the darkroom....
I read this forum everyday.
I visit daily.
David G. Gagnon
Though I only occasionally post, I am here, reading daily. Guess I'm a sponge.
Here, and still typing.
Here I am, I'm over here... Helloooo....
Come here everyday.
Here once a week or so...
Present and Accounted For.
Several times per day.
not a subscriber - but a daily reader
I check it daily. I like this forum and have found plenty of information over the years, someday I will be good enough to leave some helpful info too.
I read it every day. I'm just another learning lurker....
Also a learning lurker who visits daily.
All present and accounted for, Sir!
Late as usual...
I check daily but rarely post.

Melchi M. Michel
Charles D. Ewen
Hmm, 41 - 45, Frank? Computers lie!
I am on every day and enjoy the forum immensely!
joe a kras
Yep.....always lurking.That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Reply #70 here....
Several times a day...
Late at night and I'm still here. Check several times a day but you can't prove it.
Who said only 45 check daily??
Every day or so...
Another lurking, daily monitor.
Hot Diggity! This is a humdinger! No telling what we might hit after 24 hours or so.
If you have never posted before, now is the time to do so. Hopefully, a lot of forum subscribers are in the darkroom turning out fine prints and will stumble out of the darkroom only to discover this thread and see what they are "missing".
Don't count this post in the tally.
Lurker? True that. Geez, it's my home page and I rarely find time to do much more than peruse the incoming posts. Love it just the same though.
Every day, still learning
Here most days for the past month or so.
Hello from France.
I'm sure 40-45 is way off. I have the email notification (it sends every posting that is added to the forum) turned on so I don't regularly go to the web site but I'm always reading the emails and learning lots.
David R Munson
I am here, and if you consider that I've been following this board at one location or another for something like 9 of my 23 years (how long has this thing been going, anyway?), something tells me I'm here to stay. :-)
I'm here. There seems to be a bit of a gender bias in the responses though.
Couple of times a week, just learning.
Very funny the cat drinking from the washer, beats the dog drinking from the dunny.
Here, and I read the posts daily -- my favorite forum!
I watch almost daily and contribute very occasionally. Seems to me the 40-45 watchers is way off beam!
I take a look here every day and have learned a lot already.
Thank you everybody for sharing your knowledge!
OK, where are the sweet rolls? Did y0u bring coffee, too, Frank? ;-)
I read the forum posts daily, and contribute occasionally.
I check at least once a day all the way from the Yoo K. I've learned so much.
You can count me among the regulars.
To be or not to be...
LF forever ;-)))
Checking in from work on a Sunday morning.
Me be here.
I´m checking almost daily! So many things still to learn ...
Wouldn't miss it for the world!
I read 2 - 3 times a day and don't use email notification.
I read most mornings while having my first coffee, but just don't have much to contribute so postings are fairly rare
Eh?... What?.... Did someone ring?..... Buggerit, I'm going back to bed.......
Here once or twice a week, unless wandering the wilderness....
Howdy. Don't use e-mail notification as it clutters my inbox,and is not selective enough.
Hello from London! - Julian
I look in a couple of times a day -greetings from the Canary Islands.
I usually manage it at least twice a day.

Anthony J. Kohler
I'm all here because I'm not all there.
Just out of the darkroom, still breathing fixer. Presently out of my mind, back soon. Checking here 8 days a week.
I lurk daily.
I check in a few times a day. One of my connections is a dial-up, and if I turn on the feature to be sent notices of each post, my in-box gets hopelessly clogged. So I just look at the new topics through my browser.
I am here all day mon-fri. I keep a window open while I am working.
Kevin M Bourque
Here I be.

Checking in from Saratoga Springs.

Wave from the back of the room.
So what's the count thus far?
late on this one, but still a daily reader.
Yeah, I'm here.

Was photographing, here for the moment.

Everyday that I'm home.
Hey Mac, I like to read about accidents. My favorite is C.J. power washing his film in the toilet.
I check-in almost every day.
A couple times a day via RSS.
I'm here every day. Always trying to learn.
The first rule of Large Format Forum: Nobody talks about Large Format Forum
I'm here, too, practically every day -- and likewise, I don't use e-mail updates.
Daily reader, very occasional contributor
daily reader - from switzerland
I visit frequently.
I don't have time to answer now, I'm on my way to the darkroom to load some holders with paper. I want to try scanning some paper negatives. I read about that technique on this forum a few days back. I guess it was TOO obvious for me to think of on my own.
35+ years of large format photography experience and still learning... on this forum. THANKS!
I usually browse through several times a day, less often on the weekend.
present and accounted for albeit late
Since brevity is the soul of wit, and tediousness the outward limbs and flourishes, I will be brief.
Here with the winter blahs. That's all.
At least once per day, mostly to soak up the vast amount of free information - PRICELESS.
Did you know a message has to have 8 characters?
I'm here at least once a day.
logging in occaisionally and learning.
Read forum just about every day. Rarely request to be notified of replies. Enjoy it alot! Agree with the note about egos abound. Chill......
everyday when i warm up my screen .cool
ANDREW JACKSON!! oh, um, 3.1416!
I usually look in once a day on average. This could be a very long thread!
Do I get to have the last word?, probably not..
well i havent been counting, but we are many, and there is still a few of the boddies missing.
Couple times a day, sometimes even with opinions.
J. P. Mose
Reporting to duty....
So what's the current tally of responses?
I'm here ... at least since the last time I checked.
Robert C. McColloch
Yo! I'm here.
Still mostly lurking, and learning, after all these years...
Je lis ce forum tous les jours.
??? HERE !!!
Let's keep the roll call going. It has not been 24 hours yet. Also, some of the "Big Boys" on this forum have not been heard from yet. Hopefully, they are on a binge printing spree and going without food and water to turn out some master prints and will come dragging out of the darkroom to get on the computer before collapsing into deep sleep. Or maybe they are on photo safaris shooting the wildflower explosion or discovering new canyons and vistas and beach scenes.
(Sounds like I have been in the darkroom too much, doesn't it?)
So, lets keep the roll call going. The response has been fantastic. Far more responders than expected, and some great comments about the forum in general. Thanks.
One more from Germany. Every other day, at least. A wealth of information and motivation to keep on learning. Thanks for sharing your wisdom as well as your pitfalls. Both are very much appreciated.
I'll check in...
This brings back memories of morning formation at 05 cold and dark 00. Who just threw a rock at the first sergeant?
here. lurker here.
Tardy but present. Spent yesterday in the darkroom; out today for some fresh air!
big boys? are they more equal than the rest of us? anyway, I check in fairly regularly.
I spend too much time lurking, not enough in the darkroom.
I check here everytime I'm on the computer, which is frequently-but being new to large format I tend to lurk and learn rather than post
Minäkin olen täällä...
What's this all for, exactly?
I'm here :-) Listning & Learing.
John D Gerndt
Do I count?
I can't say that I monitor this site every day religiously but am on at least 6 times a week.
Just got back.
I check this forum several times a week. Thanks to all the contributors. It's been a great educational resource for my LF and darkroom endeavors.
Hmmmm? What? Did someone call? www.flavellphotography.com or www.dailyindependent.com
I'm here. Still working up the nerve to shoot more Quickloads without shooting blanks.... (sigh)
Here - present - not accounted for as of yet.
Gee, I didn't know we were going to have a quiz today...
Present and some-what accounted for.
Me too, here and learning.
Hi from Sydney.
Usually here 5 or 6 days a week.
Most days when in town I check to see what I can learn
Almost every day.
Daily; I love this place! Helps me feel like I'm out shooting photos even when I'm in my cubicle. :-)
I check in almost every day. I have been shooting LF for just over a year and have learned a great deal from this forum. Thanks!!!
Yo - I'm around every day.
I'm here once a week..........regardless.
Here, but this is my first post. Long time lurker. Love this board. Learn lots.
New(ish) to LF and the forum, but a commited lurker.
Almost every day. What a great forum!
Also checking regularly,
who me? What?
film's rotating in the processor, and prints are drying on the screens....
I log on and prowl several times a day...
I check the site regularly.
Here. Hey, maybe I'll be the last one on the thread; I do always seem to run a little late...
I may as well take this opportunity to say that I sure wish I had known about this forum at the beginning of my photographic life, back when I was fumbling around in the darkness (literally and figuratively).
Thanks to all!
Hello. Here about twice a day.
Here, dreaming of being in the darkroom or shooting LF instead of work........only digital here, sigh.
I'm here about every other day - more if work is slow, less if it's hectic.
1st post, never needed to post with the extensive archives. Lurker.
I've wandered into....the LF zone (and enjoy it almost daily)
Lurking and asking, but mostly present.
I try to get my fix daily.
Am I the caboose? Huh?
Yep. (I must fill in at least 8 characters for my reply to go through)
