Oh no not another attention seeker!
Oh no, not another LL Cerberus! I would expect Mr. Schewe to attack, but looks like he inspired a legion of faithfuls.
I've been visiting this site almost daily and have been doing so for the last 10 years, so I think I know the site quite well. Yes sometimes Michael goes through phases of not making much origonal contribution, but then he normally has a good reason, like being in the wilderness actually doing photography... rather than criticing a free service and forum for phtotgraphers.. oh yeah sorry I forgot, you weren't criticing were you ?!!
I love it when people start a post "I don't mean to be critical... BUT..." as if it makes them more considered opinions in some way.
How maliciously or benevolently you read my comments is your prerogative, of course... I stand by my initial matter-of-factly remark that the store (not site) does not have much new
I not being overly syncophantic here, except to say...
"I love it when people start a post "I don't mean to be sycophantic
... BUT..." as if it makes them more considered opinions in some way."
... that the products on offer here are unique in many ways, you have a hand full of the publication on the video journals, so I am not sure why you believe this... too much of a good thing maybe?!!
Also I am confident that IF you can supply a review or article of interest to Michael I am sure he would publish it and maybe raise your percieved lack of content atleast in your own mind!
Where exactly did I say anything about uniqueness of the offer? Given that I bought a decent number of products myself (and will do again, as soon as something new appears), I obviously think the products are unique and valuable. Also, where exactly did I complain about the "lack of content" on the site
? Once again, I was talking about the store
To be fair, MR did mention in the same post the number of unique new visitors per day, so why not promote the back catalogue of work, the LL |Video journals are mostly photo technique and location based... this does NOT go out of fashion like techno geek speak, something which is fairly limmited in the products!
Dpreview is still open if you fancy winding them up too, to be honest a pointless thread like this should be removed by the moderators anyway
While I am sure there are new visitors every day, I dare to assume that the bulk of the visitors are the old ones, therefore the bulk of new (monetary) contributions would come from the repeated customers... hence my suggestion that new stuff in the store
would help. Now... if a helpful (by intention) suggestion by someone who already and repeatedly sent his money to this site is met with such hostility, what is left for the perceived "enemies" then?
