    Novices

    I've been thinking this over and I'm not sure how to go about it. BUT we need a category for novices only. But then they need an experienced moderator and I would not want to be in that position at all without being paid large sums of money or film and paper. I was lucky. I used to work at a camera shop at age 16 and had great mentors. That just does not happen now a days. Maybe they can moderate themselves and build a Saturn rocket.

    Tolerance would be an easier solution.

    For a model of this approach, go to

    http://www.cinematography.net/

    There are all sorts of categories and Geoff, who runs it with help of "list mums" doesn't let it stray off topic, and he's banned people who are nasty and not sociable.

    We don't need a separate category for novices on this forum.

    With photo technology advancing at a rapid rate, all of us are all novices in some way, or another.

    Photography has been both my vocation and advocation for over sixty years, and I still learn something new about it every day.

    You learn quite a bit when you mentor novices on large format technique.

    Agreed. I see novices asking for advice and receiving very good information here on a regular basis. This seems like a solution in search of a problem that isn't there.

    If we did that, we'd only have a bout 8 guys left on this site.

    I'm not keen on that notion. Segregation isn't a nice thing.

    Re: Novices

    maybe there should be a search window that pops up before you're allowed to post. you must search google before asking a question that's been asked dozens of times. What do I do with my film after I shoot it?

    I just delete the "I'm a nooby" posts that ask the same questions over and over. I have no patience for questions that are already posted. I think there would be more than 8 members who are social and not nasty.
