A new photo forum - would you be interested?

post #1 of 110
Thread Starter 
Hey all

I've received news that we've recently acquired a photography forum domain name - as such, the logical thing to do seems to be creating a community there. Given the success of our photography community here, if we were to transpose this onto a new website run by us, would you be interested in being a founding member?

Please post your thoughts!

Update:

I talked with admin a couple nights ago about the directions we'd look to take this project, and we decided on a few things both in terms of how it would relate to OCN and the feel of the community itself.
The new photo forum would not replace this forum here on OCN; also the vehicles and pets forums here will be recreated and each site in the 'family' will stand on its own
We are in talks with a very well-known web devloper who would be creating a layout for us that focusus as much on showcasing photos as it does forums and discussion. Given that it is a site about an artistic medium, we feel there should be a very artistic feel to the community's design as a whole and we're going to try and integrate member works into the layout in prominant ways
At least one extremely highly-popular photopgrapher on Flickr is willing to be a part of the community, creating a precedent of professional interaction and high quality content early on
We'd be looking for a group of 30 or so "founding members" who would be compensated in the early days in exchange for keeping livley, informative discussion running on the site to help build a memberbase

As with all of our sites (some more successful with others), we're looking to create a community experience that is second to none in the way that the website transcends being just a discussion board and becomes a major facet of the lives of its members. The thought is that by diving in head-first and really slamming all of our effort at building a great memberbase early in the site's life, we can avoid the somewhat floundering status that Carforum and Dogforum have maintained - though we are also going to pump major energy and development effort into those communities to get them back on track, too.

If any (or all) of that sounds like something you're interested in, please send me an email.

I think this would be a great idea to test out. Now the reason I say that is because there are not to many forums out there that are really that active (one reason I come here alot) so I believe it could work out well.

sounds interesting. i like the photo forums on OCN because its not separated into different companies. other forums i have used like to have canon and nikon in their own sub category and everyone else is grouped into OTHERs. i think without company specific groups it helps people from opening thousands of complaint threads (look at the sony alpha forums on DPR, non-stop whining).

I feel like it should remain part of OCN and not a separate forum. While there are regulars in the sub-forum it's not enough to build a community off of.

And there's already other photography forums that are quite large, as pointed out by mz-n10. For photography, I'm a member of this forum: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/index.php

I would like to get into photography. But learning about it from a PC forums is quite limited. So a new sister forum would be awesome. I could read up on some guides and start into the photography business.

Great idea, as long as it keeps the same format of OCN. "Rep, Trade Rating, etc."

That. It's like a ghost town in here at times.

I actually think it would be better just to keep it as a sub-forum.

I like how cosy it is in here, don't think we could spread ourselves out enough to populate a dedicated forum.

It would also be cool if you could use the same account across both and only one rep counter per user across both EG you can get one rep on OCN and you would also get that rep on PN
