I'm not sure if this is the right sub-forum to ask this, but it was my understanding that, after being a member for 30 days, I'd be able to see the classified ads folks put up here (since I cannot see them yet, I'm not sure what the proper name for them is). I joined on March 30th, and I'm eager to see them. Has the outage slowed things down?

Hi Paul,

I just tried New Posts and Today's Posts, and the Classifieds show up on both.

They're not called Classifieds. They're called For Sale/For Trade.
There's also a Wanted to Buy.

Thanks, Leigh,

I just checked those and, nope, not for me. I guess I should have said, 'Did the outage put new folks behind by a few days, so we have not officially been here for thirty days?' I don't know if the privilege of seeing the For Sale/For Trade and Wanted to Buy pages happen automatically, or if someone needs to somehow add us newbies to the list. If the latter, I suppose folks have been mighty busy with other things. I can wait (barely!)

Paul -

I just checked your profile and reset your status manually. You should be all set now - let us know if you still have a problem.

Okay, it's official: I love this place!

Thanks, Oren!

Since the For Sale/For Trade section caters to our GAS(Gear Acquisition Syndrome) issues, shouldn't it be more accurately named
The GASsifides? (drum roll, cymbals :rolleyes:)

"GASsifides" - chuckle.

Hi Oren, could you please check my profile also. I've registered more than 30 days ago and can't find the sale/trade section.

Great forum btw.

Thanks Benito

Hi Benito - your profile shows you as having registered on April 17, so a couple of days still to go.

Oren - I'm not sure when I registered - I get an error when I try to access my profile page. I also cant see the buy/sell section. Can you check on my account?

Hi Alexander - your profile in the admin panel looks fine, so you should be able to see everything. Perhaps try a fresh login, and try enabling cookies for the site if you currently have that blocked.

To me, the most interesting aspect of this thread is the fact that folks are joining! Yes, this is a great forum, and I am indebted to some prolific contributors who have shared their expertise with me, even if indirectly.

Thanks Oren. Time goes slower then I thought.

Yes! I've been here only a short time, and it's opened up my thoughts about lots of aspects of photography, not just LF. But I'm really getting into the idea of more LF, too. I've even bought a 5x7 camera with a 4x5 back, and am now in the process of making my own 5x7 back for it. Oh, and I just got some 5x7 film holdrrs in the mail, and three new lenses, with a fourth on the way. And I'm ordering 5x7 film, and I'm figuring out what I need to start developing my own film, and.... It doesn't end, does it?

I've been repairing old Speed and Crown Graphics for almost 20 years now, and have made a small but significant part of my income re-selling them. But most of my use of them has been with 120 film. In helping a friend* who had a lot of questions about LF, I realized that I had lots of my own questions, and here I am. I've read lots of posts by folks here for years now, but never asked any of my own until recently. Thanks for all the help!

*I met this new friend when he contacted me after seeing one of my eBay ads.
