    Terry Banet is new GetDPI.com Moderator

    Jack and I are proud to announce that Terry Banet (TEBnewyork) will be added to the GetDPI moderators list. Maybe the only woman moderator on a Photo Forum. Please join us in welcoming her to her new position on GetDP

    Thanks everyone.
    I was joking around with Jack, Guy and the other moderators this AM that I don't want to go from Moderator to Banned in one fell swoop!

    4 total: Jim Collum, Mike Hatam, Bob Freund and now Terry Banet. We do not assign mods specific forums to moderate, but this particular combination of moderators gives us a moderator group that in total is active across ALL forums and thus the entire forum is efficiently covered.

    CONGRATULATIONS TERRY
    . . . . or should that be commiseration! Keeping this shower in order is an impossible task

    On the other hand, a calmer, more sensible and yet good fun person I cannot imagine.

    The only surprise is that it took Guy and Jack so long to persuade her!

    Just this guy you know

    I know apug.org has at least 2 female moderators and there are a couple of smaller forums that I know of with some in addition to at least one female moderator at photo.net (plus there are some women-only photo forums).Just wanted to point out that they may be in the minority, but we're not breaking new ground here.

    Who is Sean Reid?

    Who is Terry -- and how did she get to be powerful?

    Why is God making such big rocks?

    And how long does it take Jack to take a picture? (I've been staring at his avatar for almost 3-hrs -- he hasn't moved.)

    I love the internet -- where is the Bourbon?

    At which rule did he balk? The one about not threatening to sue other posters?

    It's probably not appropriate for mods and admins to get into specifics but I can't help but wonder what rules are so hard to follow -- I think the rules look pretty standard and reasonable. Have the offending posts been removed? What was his ID?

    True, yet there is a line (not sure how fine) between "discussing" and "arguing" openly on the forum. Sometimes the discussions can get a bit heated, and even stray from the intent, getting more into an argument between folks over things that could be better handled off-line. That does not violate any sort of "openness" and honesty, but some may not want to back their claims with examples or other proof. If one wants to take a position on some subject, they should be prepared to have some substantiating evidence available to support that claim, and not require others to subscribe to something at some cost. Not saying this is/was the issue with SR, but I can easily see how it could become a sticking point. I subscribed to RR when the M8 first came out, and did find it very useful for the more detailed tests and comparisons with lenses, for example, but I also found that there was a lot of very practical "in use" discussions in place like LUF and finally, thankfully, here at GetDPI, where the atmosphere and information shared was so much more enjoyable and useful.

    LJ

    P.S. Belated "congrats" to Terry.....will keep things fun and interesting.
