Incompetance of Sony Forum management


Recommended Posts

Sorry Keith. LAst weekend we noticed that a limited amount of people didn't get their confirmation email. Mainly because some of the services do not recognize GMAIL as a legit mail service and the mail have landed in spam box instead. So we no did the change to make an "approved" new confirmation mail. This is why you got the mail now!

For about four weeks mails were blocked by our service provider without giving us a notice.

My fault that we didn't notice.

 

After I did I resent a notification to all unverified new members and an apology in an extra message.

This is how we handle such issues.

 

My suggestion: Take a look around, perhaps you'll reconsider your harsh verdict.

I did check my spam box.  I am not sure why gmail could possibly be considered anything but legit. It is one of the most dominant email providers in the world.

for KM: 

  

I disagree. Do NOT look around. Just leave.

You never get a 2nd chance to make a 1st

impression. Sealed deal. G'bye.

The only American thing left to do is..... CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT.

 

I haven't gotten email notices for all the posted threads I follow for the past 4 weeks or so.

 

Does that mean I can qualify to join this class action lawsuit?

 

Wait, I do not live in America. Will that be held against me?

Australia has a free trade agreement with America. Will that go in my favour?

 

Wait: Like everyone else I did not pay anything to join this forum. Does that go against us?

The fact that I did not receive an email but I can still see all the posts on the Forum itself. Does that go against this Class Action Lawsuit?

 

I am concerned "our" lawyers will go after us for payment when they find out the people behind this very open Sony Alpha Forum have no assets.

 

My head hurts, I think I will not join this Class Action Lawsuit after all.

 

I will take a rest and then take some soothing photos.

 

That's what I'll do.

 

:P

dominant?  Maybe the worst mail providers in the world, and originate the most amount spam.

Time to take a breath! No need for a flame war.  

 

Hey Keith - take a breath, too. And as Admin suggests, take a look around and you will see that this forum is overwhelmingly supportive and welcoming with a lot of really warm-hearted and talented people, and with an historic and encyclopedic store of information and wisdom about photography and Sony cameras in particular, but I think our egos were stepped on by your first post. Normally Newbies are gently guided to the information they request, but I think we reacted to your reaction and now everyone's reacting. 

 

If you read the SonyAlphaRumors "news" comments, you'll see that those posts have a somewhat negative tone, but this forum is much more positive in general. We just got caught up by your abrupt entry. I think if you give us another chance, we'll give you another chance, too.

 

So let's all take a breath and de-escalate.

 

(FYI - taking a long breath in, then a very slow, longer exhale, actually activates your parasympathetic nervous system and begins brain activation of the calming mechanisms, this in turn frees the prefrontal cortex of the brain to think more clearly. So, breathing does make you smarter!)

Okay. I will. Keith

    • Hi Pieter, Not yet. I've thought about that, to use a tripod. But I've no time to try that yet. I'll try it this weekend and let you know.  Thanks!
    • Did you try manually focussing at 135mm, camera on tripod / solid ground, delayed release? If you can get sharp pictures that way, at least you know the optics are fine.
    • I don't know how those cameras would fare as aviation cameras - either of them are far beyond my scope of purchase - but people have been taking pictures of planes and other man-made flying objects well, as long as they have been around.  Unless the aircraft is flying straight at you or flying perpendicularly away from you, the AF lagging behind the shutter should not be an issue and in almost all cases you would be shooting at infinity so internal lens movements to acquire focus should be at a minimum.  If you are expecting to crop a lot, I guess a camera with higher resolution would be better for you but that also depends on what you are going to do with the image.  If you are going to be printing large mural sized prints, higher resolution image would be better but if you are going to print at or below 11x17 or not print at all, even a cropped image from my A7II will be good enough on any consumer grade monitors on the market.  I have seen images printed from the first generation Olympus OM-D E-M5 (16MP) at 11x17 and they were excellent.
