I can be very talkative at times.

I discovered that many regulars here want Pentax to stay exactly what it has been for the last dozen or so years - a supplier of inexpensive "APS-C" DSLRs. I have also discovered that many equate "quality" with "lots of detail" i.e., "high mp count". I probably responded a few extra times because of the GiveAway. I posted more often than usual in the PYP! section to keep low count photos on the first page, but that means I looked and looked at a lot of photos, and I really did see good in many of them.
I learned it can be difficult to find out who won things. I also learned that it can be pretty difficult to come up with 100 posts in a month without s***-posting. My album has a ton of stuff in it now.

Anybody got a link to a winners thread article or something? I can't find anything on December's drawing as the drawing thread just kind of went quiet.

[edit: just found it 1 minute later.] congrats to the winners. I kind of liked that bit they did last year where you had to be an active member before the stuff started, but I guess bringing in fresh blood helps too.

Yes, Adam doesn’t keep to schedules very well - sometimes we sit waiting - but no one is perfect, especially not me - and he is the sponsor of, pays for, these GiveAways.

I'll admit to being more-than-a-little taken aback. I've never won anything worth winning before! I was just pleased that my rooty fisheye photo was doing OK in the comp, another first for me.

Congrats to all the other winners.

Cheers, Kris.

Congratulations on winning the K-new! Now we know who is the person who cares more about the releasing date! Most probably the same person who was the first to win a K-new worldwide!

Thank you Adam for the give aways and congratulations to all other winners too!

I discovered that after many years, I still enjoy the positive attitude of forum members trying to genuinely help out people who come up with a question.

I also discovered that, even though some posts were quite tongue-in-cheek, most users here have a great sense of humour.

I also discovered that I'm not particularly lucky...

Hi Bdery
All your points are correct
I'm glad for all the help here because boy do I need it..so thanks to all.
Humour well we need it going by some, some of our camera models can't take pictures of bycycles on a bend coming at you...or the list goes on and on and on.
I think we are all lucky to have such a happy lot of like minded souls........oh competitions you mean...its better chances than lotto....and no I didn't win either.

Dave

I learned that the photo threads are the best, while the ones in News and Rumors generate the most arguments.

There is a news and rumours section?

I prefer to hang out in the photo threads and the film images area, and a little bit in the Q zone.

Yep, I would agree. I made the mistake of reporting Pentax's absence at the Paris Photo Expo.

Amazing to me that some of the most vitriolic critics have never posted an image on PF ... or very few at best.
