Let me spell it out for you, Andrew: there is no longer a need to defend and/or prove your ability as the Jerk-In-Chief; this distinguished title is for eternity.

Let me spell it out for you....
That's a task that is far over your head Frans. Much like making a snapshot, let alone creating a photograph!
"It's very hard not to be condescending when you're explaining something to an idiot."-Bill Maher

With tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of websites with forums on so many topics, how is it Frans has decided to come here, take a dump on our carpet so often when it's clear he has zero talent or an ability to take a photograph? All while his audience nearly unanimously rejects virtually everything he posts?
I sometimes don't agree with Slobodan but there is no question (and proof of concept) he is a very good photographer.
I almost never agree with the fiction Alan posts on the topic of technology, but he's at least able to show us, he can take a picture.
With Frans, one has to wonder if anyone he encounters takes him seriously let alone respects him. Here and on PhotoNet (another photo website he frequently dumps his bowel movements), not the case. This distinguished fact is for eternity....

It's an excellent suggestion. Although, given that the person who started the topic did not respond to the first two replies, both of which offered assistance, perhaps they should just lock the thread. If the topic starter is not responding to the helpful posts and all we have are wrestling matches, there doesn't seem to be a good reason to keep it open.

Indeed, as seen in posts #2 and #3. Then confusion started in #4 and was hijacked by Frans in post #6.

The lack of clean hands by most participants here is readily apparent. I'm washing my dirty hands right now and moving on. Best wishes to you all.

I see that, in my absence, there are plenty of contenders vying to take over my role as the Jerk-In-Chief  ;D

Since it's still open... one last thing. I've had plenty of heated public debates with Slobodan, and privately some nice exchanges.

I let him know privately, several months ago, that I respect his intelligence and enjoy his wit. I just thought that I'd take this opportunity to embarrass him by stating it publicly.  ;)

Correction: personal attack by you in post #5; I called you out on that in post #6 and I will continue to do so whenever I see you do it.

And yet another, repeated personal attack.

The only thing worse than a major hypocrite is a hypocrite who can't take a snapshot posting in forums about photography!
In just this one topic, one in which Frans hasn't ever discussed (due likely to ignorance and inexperience), Calibration issue with NEC PA301W.  Prints too dark..., hijacking and yes, personally attacking, and soiling our forum carpet again.

And he's off on another pi$$ing contest...

Yes, I was right: another pi$$ing contest.

I guess I have to disappoint you, but the title of Jerk-In-Chief has been awarded for eternity to, drumroll please, digitaldog.

Let me spell it out for you, Andrew: there is no longer a need to defend and/or prove your ability as the Jerk-In-Chief; this distinguished title is for eternity.

Oh, I get it Andrew: I'm an idiot who doesn't know anything about photography (where's your proof of concept?) and so are some others here (like Alan).  You on the other end are the cat's meow and can insult others at will and don't we dare call you out on it. Get a life!

It does, doesn't it? I bet a moderator who monitors threads such as this would have done something about it by now. Maybe the old one could be begged to return?

Not a chance. The possibility Frans will show us his photography "work" is only slightly less a possibility.
And now, maybe we can get back to the topic if the OP still needs help: Calibration issue with NEC PA301W.  Prints too dark...

Begged? You seem to have rather strong feelings regarding the past performance of the previous moderator.

You know, life is full of odd coincidence. The previous moderator, you suggest should be "begged to return", made his last post on February 05, 2021. Coincidentally, you registered here just a few days later on February 08, 2021 and soon started posting plaintive laments about the absence of a moderator...

...I know some forums have moderators to ensure good behaviour: isn't there anyone to do that here? It's a shame.

Your post above is from a topic you started looking for comments on a photo you posted. You received a number of pleasant and positive replies before the thread became unfortunately unpleasant and negative, but it really was an image with nice lighting.

You didn't mention what your image depicted, but Google image search recognized the cathedral in St. Pölten (Sankt Pölten), Austria. I'd never heard of St. Pölten, a small city in Lower Austria. It looks like a lovely quiet town and you did get a nice shot of a landmark there.

But in another of life's odd coincidences, our former moderator, for whose return you suggest we beg, has also posted photos online from St. Pölten. Down in the bottom right corner of his online gallery page is an image that links to his St. Pölten, Austria "ironman" gallery.  It's his only gallery that requires a password, so I guess those are photos of a personal nature. You can, however, open all the other galleries to enjoy his fine photographic work.

Wasn't it better when there was an active forum moderator? I think it was before my time here but that's the impression I get.

Before your time, but you only missed him by a few days. Who knows? With life's odd coincidences, perhaps your paths will cross and you can beg him to come back personally.

I think he's much more skilled as a photographer than he was as a moderator. I found his snarky condescending comments about entire groups of members posting in threads to be odd and unwelcome behavior from a moderator. Of course, you and Frans make similar comments, but then you're not entrusted with the responsibilities or authority of a moderator. I don't miss the occasionally patronizing attitude or sometimes arbitrary nature of the past moderation. Others are free to disagree with me and that's often what makes conversations worthwhile and interesting.

Did you examine the metadata (for Copyright)? Pretty hilarious when you examine the 'transparency' of this poster outlined in their profile.

No question, one IS a photographer, the other isn't. At least there is zero proof of that accomplisment! ;)

Tech, I'm impressed: you found St Pölten. It just shows what a teen boy can accomplish in his darkened bedroom if he stops watching pornography for a while and puts his hands to more constructive use. The town, not far from Vienna, is bland but pretty enough. The spire is its best feature. I was there for the half Ironman, as were more than 7,000 other people that day, IIRC. It was quite crowded.

You've correctly noted my pleas for active moderation. A moderator who read the groups would have intervened to reign in the willy-waving taking place in this thread. He would also have noted your misogynistic trolling of me and brought you to heel. I don't particularly care who does the moderation - the previous man seems, looking back at his interventions, to have been doing a good job - but I do think someone should. Moderators at other sites I use would not tolerate the personal abuse which seems to be standard practice here.

Anyway, you have me bang to rights. I'm not really sf at all. I'm one of the Illuminati, a shape-shifting lizard like the Queen of England. You have outed me. Well done.

Well, that was an impressive show. Of what, I haven't quite decided, but impressive nevertheless.
