Love the idea of an A/V forum :P

Love the idea of limiting image size to something reasonable - 1024*768, and linking to a larger image if necessary. Having to scroll to see an image is totally stupid.

I'm really glad this topic came up too :P

Actually I think it is up to Kev, since he's the admin.

Any chance of this getting implemented to provide a suitable place for Alex's excellent assignment idea and general photography/imaging discussion? The general thread just seems to have gotten too unwieldy these days, especiallly if we try to do something of this nature.

I wouldn't mind an AV forum, but I don't like the idea of a dedicated photography forum.

Well, whatever is narrow enough to be appropriate while being wide enough to not be a ghost town is fine by me.

A separate photography forum would be perfect. Would it also be possible to offer some TR webspace in order to upload pics? Of course there are other options, but this might be a way to raise some extra dough?

I suspect that there are enough good, free photo hosting sites that such a service would sit unused while providing implementation and security bugaboos. Flickr is relatively nice and seems to be the trendy choice these days.

Well, normally I'd suggest (or agree with) an A/V forum. But given that there's an existing Echo Vale, and it already does a good job, perhaps the new forum should be sort of its visual counterpart -- a Photo/Video forum. So you'd have photography stuff, but also HDTV, video cameras, outboard tuners, STBs, etc. (Video cards obviously still belong in the appropriate mfr forum).

Can't think of a witty title to parallel Echo Vale, however.

And I agree: there are plenty of free picture hosting sites; the only advantage TR might see is additional adviews, but it probably won't pay for all the necessary added storage. So folks can just use any of the free ones. On sites like Flickr that support tagging, you could even add a "TechReport" tag and create a shared pool (these can be public or private) -- some sites actually pull pictures from Flickr based on their tag -- see the *st blogs like Seattlest, etc

Do we really need *another* forum section? After all, this is not a photography site nor a camera review site.

I think it's bad enough that we have separate intel, amd, nvidia and ati forums.

Now that we have lost several of the more, ahem, vocal "proponents" of certain brands, I wouldn't mind seeing the hardware forums merged back into just "CPU" and "GPU" and try to have reasoned, enlightened discourse.

OK, I'm not smoking anything, but maybe I caught a whiff of something from the ventilation. :p

That's a good idea.

Yes, we do have quite a few forums sections, however...

This has been in discussion for awhile. I'll try to speed it along.

I'm thinking rather than 'Photography' you could call it the 'Digital Imaging' forum. That way all software, hardware, scanners, cameras, related to anything digital imaging could go into a single place.

It was revived by a post that has since been culled (seemed spammy, but had no link etc. in it at the time)
