and the spammers are back in force, 3 new entries already.

Site probably needs a security update.,  if they renew the domain past July 30.

It is all about the light and your ability to sculpt it!

Equipment is just a secondary nuisance (but I wants it all, my precious.)

Yay, My original ID seems to be fixed!

Justin must have corrected things while he was clearing the bozo spammers out!

The spammers are amongst us again which is no real surprise and causes me not the greatest concern though I have to admit to some concern now that "judgement day" seems to have been shifted to July 31st... ????????

WOW! I'm sorry to read what I'm reading; I started the SDP journey here after the book back in December 2014. I was lured to the Facebook page as there was more "action" there; now with 20,000+ members it can be a free for all. I don't post photos of scantily clad people, cute animals or whatever the crowd is looking for so I basically get very little feedback. My photography still sucks! LOL!  That's OK, I accept what it is. I do it to have a hobby. 

 

I was on another forum before this and the people there were just plain nasty; never saw that here which I appreciated. It's a shame they are letting this possibly go away. I guess when you do this for a living you sometimes need to move on -  always looking at how to make money from whatever venture. But with over 20,000 books sold you'd think this site would have more traffic. Having a private community where you can get advice is a pretty cool thing, I'm now sorry I didn't utilize this place more.

 

Thanks to those who had helped me in the past.

I checked and there are 15 moderators and administrators for this forum, yet none seem to do anything.

Now that's beyond pathetic!  I won't be a bit surprised if this place disappears on 1 August.

I saw some mentioning of moving the community to a new site if this one gets shuttered. Is there any update on that effort?

Glad to see the domain name was renewed. Although, since very little of this forum is public, the spammers were never a big concern for me. It is easy to just stay in the Registered sections which is where the 'good stuff' is anyway. And, I am not ready to give up on this forum. It is one of the most civilized ones out there. I really enjoy the CC that goes on.
