    Site to go read-only in September

    If you haven't read the feedback thread recently, it appears that Jeff is making the site read-only in September. If there is enough interest we could check with Jeff to see how we might become administrators of the site, or possibly just assume it entirely.

    What say you?
    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.
    50mm f/1.8, Sigma 18-125, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR, Nikon 43-86 f/3.5 AiS, Vivitar 28-90 F/2.8-3.5 Macro, Vivitar 75-205 F/3.8-4.8, SB800.
    Ha! See, I can change...

    Makes sense and probably won't cost us much to maintain.

    I'm in the let it go category. Times change and this site has moved well past it's use by date.
    If people really want a simple solution would be a Facebook or (my preference) Goggle+ group based around the forum membership.
    If anybody really wanted you could even set up a Flickr group that would allow image posting and discussion threads but obviously users would need a Flickr account.

    I don't know much about the underlying technology aspects of web pages or the internet that aren't visible, but there could be a good amount of maintenance to keep these forums active and functional (e.g. anti-spam, hacking, a change HTML or whatever web programming that breaks how this website works, bandwidth charges and management, etc.) that no one here is qualified and/or willing to work on. Plus there are a lot of camera reviews on this site that would now be considered historical information and might be hard to separate from the forums.

    +1 for K1W1

    I would vote for letting this site go, after all who wants the grief to maintain it and deal with spammers.

    Google + or Flickr surely would fit the bill for such a small group of us old timers without the extra work.

    Having said that, I've valued every moment on this wonderful site

    I hadn't considered the Google+/Flicker option which is better. This site is where I first learned about photography and where I've met some great people in Australia- it will be missed.

    As far as moving the group to another location is concerned somebody should probably PM Jeff to see what his feelings are about use of the DCResource name. My suggestion if he doesn't want it used (and that is his choice) would be something like just DCR or DCRmembers as a group name.
    I'm happy to participate in anything anybody wants to set up but I am not going to volunteer to do any organising. Been there, done that.

    I meant to ask Rich. Are you intending on heading back this way at any stage?

    Yes, I can't believe I haven't been back again yet. It doesn't make sense to travel to Australia for less than 3-4 weeks and I'm caring for an aging dog that I don't feel comfortable leaving without me for that long. When he recovers from his spinal surgery I will decide whether to bring him with me or wait until he passes before coming back. I really liked Australia and enjoyed spending time with you and Rooz.
