It's not my forum and obviously I don't make the rules, but I think any format should be allowed for any purpose as long as your proud of it.
In earlier times, this medium format section was more of a professional destination than the other sections, just because a few years ago most of the people using medium format made large investments and were usually working on the professional level.
In other words there was a price of admission.
Today most people have multiple formats and shoot different cameras for different projects, or shoot different formats side by side.
Also Medium format has been introduced to a lot of very good fine artists, or advance amateurs and their work is very much worth viewing.
In regards to recent, I think anything beautiful should be allowed, film or digital, small or large format. I'd like to see some of Rob's imagery but under this strict heading his work would not be allowed which is a shame.
That would mean nothing from the hundreds of photographers that really invented the professional industry.
After all beautiful work is beautiful work.
I'd love to see this forum once again become a larger destination for anyone that produces excellent work.
In fact I'd love to see this morph over to more like a high quality instagram network, where it's available on this site and through facebook and the other social media sites, though I don't know if that's possible.
Saying that, I'd like to see more medium format work, especially work that is unique to the format as I do find that interesting.
