    Re: Merging Image threads Poll

    As long as the image is labeled for the reader I don't see an issue with merging... If they stay separate though maybe it's best if they're stickied at the top of the forum.

    I like #4 too... Except that last part about donating money... I have have a M9 to finance.

    Re: Merging Image threads Poll

    Let's merge them and make some Fun with images. Not with pixel-counting.
    This forum is so good in "just" discussing the thing we should do with a camera and leave the nagging techno-nerds dwell in the sinister threats of the other forums.

    I would like to see them separate until the first of the year, while it's new, and then combine them.

    Re: Merging Image threads Poll

    I think MWalker has a good point. For a while, there is a reason to keep the threads separate. That way, people interested in the latest M9 images can get to them quickly--for example, when the latest Lightroom profile comes out.

    But once the initial M9 rush is over, I do think the threads should be merged, or a new one created for all digital M photos. One of the most annoying things about photo forums is how people get segregated right down to the individual camera model they own. It separates people whose interest in photographs might be the same. Let's not do that here, any more than is absolutely necessary.

    Re: Merging Image threads Poll

    Totally agree, let's get it separated for the moment. People interested in the M9 can easily find some pictures. And in a few month, all together in the same NEW thread, and we will wonder why do we have bought this M9 ? ;-)

    Re: Merging Image threads Poll

    I like to look at images and frankly don't care too much what kind of camera it is although I would like folks to label them appropriately.
    Separate threads make sense ot me more by genre than by camera.
    I could start the All new fun with nudes thread for example LOL

    Re: Merging Image threads Poll

    At the moment, all the picture threads are titled "All New More and More Fun w/M8(9) Images"

    If I could humbly suggest that a sequential naming process be used, such as "M8 Images 0001" followed by 0002, when 0001 gets too unwieldy, or something more Leica-ish, then it would be easier from a search perspective, as they would be in some sort of order. (The names are for the threads, and not for each picture.)

    Thanks.

    Re: Merging Image threads Poll

    I think the way you have the poll worded splits the vote for combining. One and three are essentially the same. I'd like them together, and just distinguished by the poster indicating camera, lens, etc. More convenient in one thread. And I'm pretty sure I can still dream and/or drool even if they're combined.

    I agree. At this moment, it's essentially 27-14 in favor of combining the M8 and M9 images threads.

    I'm not a Mormon, but I gave up a coffee and caffeine addiction a short while ago. I sleep better and wake up without any fatigue, and without any craving for that shot of divine, sugared nectar. I have no problems revving my engine at any time of the early AM.

    They are different cameras and it would be simpler to be able to search and see differences.

    If they are kept separate, will we need to separate the Nikon images threads by camera? Just sayin'.

    of course not, and maybe merging would be a good idea in a few weeks / months?

    Looks like we keep them separate according to the voting process here. Let's look at it again in a month or so than just do a Fun M thread. Maybe. LOL

    Re: Merging Image threads Poll

    Guy: More people have voted to bring the two cameras back together than have voted to keep them separate. It's just that the "together" votes are split between "merge the threads" and "start a new combined thread."

    Unless I'm misreading something here... As I said before, it makes sense to keep them separate for a while. But at some point, after the newness of the M9 wears off, they probably belong together.

    And you have my undying admiration, but you ain't gettin' all my money. :-)

    Re: Merging Image threads Poll

    Actually the third one was meant to start a completely new thread and not merge. I think for a little bit keep them separate than we will do something. I think for new buyers it gives them a chance to see just the M9 images for buying decisions.

    But as someone pointed out and a good point we don't really separate a Nikon thread into D3x, D700 either. Jack and I are pretty easy about this stuff so whatever makes people happy and comfortable is okay with us. Bottom line it is about having fun,learning and sharing. That is the theme of this site and all we really care about.

    Re: Merging Image threads Poll

    The fact the M8 thread has over 4000 posts and some 150K views, I think it can stand on its own. Bottom line is it will fade in time as the M9 gains popularity. Maybe in a year, it might make sense o merge them, and we can decide then.

    Side-by-side comparisons of the images from the M8/M8.2/M8u and the M9 might be helpful for buying decisions. Those of you with both might want to do that once in a while... you know, when you have an open house in that M9 gated community.

    Consider BOTH threads open to such posts, just please be sure to accurately label your images as to which camera they are from to avoid confusion .
