    I have had problems trying to see the CAPTCHA, but it is one of the ways to defeat robots. You should be set up now. Did you get the notification?

    When I signed up on Jon's forum, I saw the CAPTCHA and thought to myself "uh oh, that looks hard to read". I wasn't at all sure I had it right when I entered it, but I did. I think Jon is updating the forum software this afternoon, and the CAPTCHA might become more "human friendly". And.. a big thanks to Jon for opening up his forum to new members right now!

    I did update the software today. It is now at the most recent stable version. There were many security bug fixes compared to the old version my site was running. And yes, the CAPTCHA has changed to be more user friendly, and hopefully still stop robots.

    Everyone here who wants to, is welcome to register at my site. I really regret that this one is going away.

    Good! I've got an account but haven't really visited the site much; I'll be over there soon. I saw that Earl and Joe are there.

    Might start thinking if anyone wants to do a print exchange in 2016?? We can organize it over at Jon's site, maybe?

    Happy New Year to everyone!

    I'm somewhat ignorant of how these places run, but when Tom announced the closure of f295 I expected it would close down at some time. Evidently others did also, and some joined other groups. However a few are still posting here and apparently everything works as id did before.

    So my question is, why don't we all continue as before??? We had something good going, but since many of the important members have gone the excellent posts of the past have dried up. So why don't we keep posting as before? (Maybe I'm overlooking something?)

    Well, I registered over on Jon's site, as an alternative to F295 should it actually go offline for good. And there's been scant traffic in their pinhole forums since. Yes, there are few of us diehard pinholers left here.

    But I'm tempted to believe that the problem is that there are simply too few dedicated pinhole photographers left, who haven't been distracted by other creative pursuits. I know that I'm guilty of this. Yes, I still make pinhole photos, but not at the frequency I once did, nor do I make new cameras like before.

    In my view, pinhole has been a dying art in the last few years; at least, in terms of an online presence. I do know that there are many dedicated pinhole artists still plying their craft, but that degree of activity happens more in the real world, less online. Which maybe a good thing. Who knows, perhaps they are on the cusp of a new trend, moving away from an Internet-based creativity to one based in the real-world.

    I tend to agree with Barry and since it seems all is operating as usual wonder why so many have bailed? That in itself could hasten the demise of this wonderful forum.Just my humble opinion.
