Yeah. It’s hard to get people to start to use this resource. Replying All in emails may be annoying to some, it is the most expedient way to have a conversation.
I check the box to receive follow up replies here which keeps me in the loop that there’s been a reply. But I don’t know about new entries unless I come here to the Forum.
I would love for the Forum to be an effective tool. Marin Photo Club uses the comp site for their Forum and even their big club doesn’t have a very active forum participation on it.
One thing they do do is have a number of active SIGs. Special Interest Groups. Street Photography. Salons! Macro. Print. Many subjects. Organized by members who want to start and run a SIG. Some meet in person and some by Zoom. Many limit the number in a group. I’ve been waiting to get into a Salon SIG.
