    It's a large format forum. What size is your monitor?

    I just started a technique thread yesterday. Do I get bonus points?

    And already, there are lines being drawn in that thread.

    Plenty of pissing in the gear threads, too, though it stands to reason there would be a lot of activity there--that's where new folks need initial help.

    But I don't look at individual sub-forums--this overall forum is just not that big. I look at "New Posts", and skip past the titles that either don't interest me or that ask questions into which I have no insight (and that's a lot of them). I usually don't even notice what sub-forum they are in, and the only time I look at a sub-forum is when I want to post something. And with that I realize my technique thread went into "On Photography" where it should not have--I didn't notice that super-secret Style and Technique sub-forum.

    Nothing generates pissing, though, like discussions about photography and art. It seems to me those should be the most considered threads here, but that is often not the case.
