Jim, can you do a global edit and change every instance (on this Forum: I know you can't do the whole interwebby!) of FF or Full Frame to 24 x 36?

If I could do that you wouldn't need to ask. I would have already done it.

Hmmmm, might be the first time I've seen the almighty Mod, admit there might be a limit, to his otherwise seemingly limitless powers.

Yes, it's true. I am a mere mortal.

You've broached the subject of one of my pet peeves.
"Full Frame". A completely arbitrary, meaningless term.
I've used 4x5 and 8x10 view cameras so, to me, 4x5 is a crop format and 8x10 is full frame. I'd bet money that there are members here to whom 8x10 is a crop.
[/rant]
I imagine so. Consider the large format cameras of old, I imagine 35mm seemed mighty small to some photographers of yesteryear!

Isn't there an "ignore this poster" option?

Having done over 200 studio shots with 8x10 cameras and shot field assignments with a 4x5, calling a 35mm camera a full frame is absolute hogwash. When I was in school, the only thing 35mm images were considered acceptable for was news shots in war zones, where carrying heavier equipment might slow you down and get you killed, or in tight places where you couldn't set up a proper camera.

Even now, I consider people shooting weddings with an 35x24 sensor amateurs. The 645z is available folks. Earn your living, do something the average person can't or won't. Anybody's uncle can turn up at wedding with an 35mm camera. Take a bit of pride in what you do. Give your customers something they won't get by asking uncle Harvey to take the pictures.

Yes there is.

At the top of the page on the right "My Account"

Then "User Control Panel."

On the left halfway down "edit Ignored Users"

Add his user name to your list. I only have about 16 on there, many others have a lot more.

Yes, but you can't put moderators on ignore.

Margherita pizza and grilled artichoke salad for supper.

Which sounds 'way more pretentious than it is, since one came out of a box and the other, a jar. Still tasty, tho'.

Yes, but to use it properly, you have to yell "BorisCleto'ed!!!" as you enable it. It's much more satisfying that way.

I would like a double-extra-ignore option, where you not only don't see their post, you don't see that they posted - AND, if they try to quote you, it pops up "I'm ignoring you". Call it "cat mode".
