Bob, please keep reporting how many members we have a while. It's inspiring to all of us, I think.
I got critique from a person at dpreview because I have put the URL to dprevived in my sig. Why single out one of several projects blah blah blah? I tried to list my reasons. One of them was people are already moving here and the most important thing is to not lose contact and for that we need a platform NOW because we have very little time.
I of course also said this is the most viable project and so on. Because it is. But that the we are growing is actually an argument for others to join.
I say "we", because thanks to your attitude Bob, I do feel part of this. 😊
No, it's his own service, I think he runs a server company. I only say 'competition' because I reached out to him and the response was along the lines of 'I'm the boss and you're welcome to hand over the community to me any time you want'. I'm not sure why he chose the URL.
I am one of those new ones hereabouts:)
FWIW I joined DPReview in August 2003 and to see it's demise and the loss of (sometimes turbulent) community was a bit of a shock.
At the time much earlier upheaval I was none too happy that it even got sold across the pond :(
But I congratulate Bob for his active efforts to make sure the community can survive..........and will watch and all being well contribute here :)
