FM has implemented a new feature called Cross-posting.

Members* can now start a thread and display it on two boards simultaneously.
The new “Post to Additional board” is located in “Options”.



There will be a ‘gray bullet’ before the subject line to visualize cross-posted threads. Mousing-over the bullet will display where the additional board is cross-posted.
Example:





When replying to a “cross-posted” thread, you will remain on the board where you started, but the thread will be updated and bumped on both locations.

* For now, I will be limiting the use of it to admin, moderators and members with more than 500 posts. (Subject to change). Let’s see how it goes. Have fun with this new tool!

All the best,
Fred

Saw this this morning and it's a fantastic idea, Fred! Especially good for the Sony image threads, where a LOT of stuff is shot with alt glass.

Still not sure how I feel about the split, as I have to keep reminding myself to go over to Sony from time to time, and the pace of both boards is slower than it was before, but this makes it a lot nicer. Great implementation!

I like this approach and thanks for all the hard work, Fred. We will see how it goes but it's a great way to satisfy the membership struggling with whether Sony is alt or not!

I too see how this can be cool, and thank you for it, Fred! But it could also be abused and wouldn't want to read each post twice or more...

Its been fantastic for the RX1 thread, which obviously is Sony branded, but that has such a long history in the Alt forum, by Alt members, so its a great idea for threads like that.

Very cool that Fred puts so much work into a site that he allows us all to post on for free. He basically owes us nothing, yet, really values our input and works hard to make this the best camera site on the net, so a big "thank you" is in order

Great idea Fred! Appreciate all the hard work and your commitment to this wonderful community. Honestly, I would have never thought about a cross-posting feature. Exactly why you're "the man" and I'm not.

Thanks Fred.

I used it to cross-post a Lens$db update announcement on the Alt and Canon forums. It's way easier than posting two identical threads on two different forums.

It was noted today that a thread I started over four years ago, the Manual Focus Nikon Glass thread in the Nikon Gear Forum is now appearing in the People Photography Forum as well. That is not something I initiated and I see no controls within the thread that would have permitted this change to be made by anyone else. So I'm curious Fred, are we a guinea pig for this new feature? Is this your handiwork?

Honestly, it seems a bit strange to have a Gear thread posted in a Presentation board, though, of course, we share photos to demonstrate the capability of these MF Nikon lenses. Since the thread is so large and so active it would likely end up being the 800 pound gorilla in any board where it appears. Hope folks in the People Photography aren't offended by our landing in their forum.

It gets more and more curious. A member who posts on Manual Focus Nikon Glass apologized and said he cross posted something in the People Photography forum without realizing that he was pulling the MFNG thread in its entirety into the PP forum. That doesn't make sense... I can only assume we're dealing with the Beta version of this feature. I don't think the idea is to corral threads from other forums and place them where the person who started the thread didn't plan on taking them... Fred?
