is there a better way to organize this threat? this threat has over 2.5k of posts.
We were thinking about creating a Wiki but FM offers too many niceties that would be lost if we launched our own venture. On FM you can not only talk about these lenses you can buy and sell them... You also can wander over the Macro World forum and post shots with extension tubes and run into the same crowd. I'm afraid we'll just keep adding pages until Fred tells us he's had enough... Then we'll start all over again as the Mustang Air to Air chaps have done elsewhere on FM. They're the all time posting champs, but then they've been at it much longer than we have...

Actually, there was some sort of site wide server software crash that brought down that thread, causing them to have to restart it. This thread is rapidly catching up to the sequel thread, and I wouldn't be surprised to see this one surpass it this year (no matter how much you guys poo-poo the possibility).
Now what would be really special is if we could find a way to meet up every so often as those guys do for airshows and such.
Out of curiosity I checked the posting rates for the two thread. The Mustang Air to Air at 71,176 posts since December 29, 2007 has been adding posts at the rate of 47.04. This thread at 51,400 since August 22, 2010 has been adding posts at the rate of 58.74. But unlike the Mustang Air to Air which had had a long life before the second thread began, we started from scratch and had a very slow first year as folks were slowly discovering we were here. Over the last 10,000 posts contributed to this thread, we have been adding them at the rate of 96.15 per day. It is little wonder folks shake their heads at how fast this thread moves... That is five pages a day.
We'll never catch that excellent thread, which doesn't matter under any circumstance. And you're right, Laura, we have no natural occasion for getting together, which is a shame. Every time I've met with someone from this thread I've enjoyed the experience immensely. I've encountered the twinkle in Reagan's eye, the warm smile on Ray's face, the good humor of Rinie who likes beer almost as much as Leighton and I do. Rinie hosted a group of participants on the TrekEarth photography website which attracted folks from around Europe and from South America. That was before I'd made my journey to Rotterdam and at the time the cost of joining my friends seemed prohibitive. That, of course, comes with the territory when we have folks scattered around the world. Traveling through cyberspace is so much easier, unless, of course, you own an airplane...

Curtis, with Leighton laid up we will surpass the Mustang thread in no time! Get well Leighton.
Gee, thanks Scott!
