K-1 Thread Link In Dropdown

So, a couple months back a nice fellow politely asked when a direct K-1 forum link would be added to the forum page. He received a lot of flack, and what I thought were quite rude responses. Yet, to this day when you go up by the banner in the forum (where there are the dropdowns for "Forum - Cameras - Lenses - Buy/Sell" etc. there isn't a "Pentax K-1 Forum." Now I'm not saying we need this or should even have it, but why when I click the "Cameras" tab with the down-arrow there is a "Pentax K-3 Forum" link there. This is all the fellow was asking about, and I think if we have one for the at-the-time flagship the K-3, why not have one for the current flagship K-1?

It might be silly for me to bring this up, but I was very disappointed in the forums (which I had been so happy to be a member of and which had been so helpful and good-natured mostly) that day to react to his question the way they did when in the end he had a very valid point that I'm thinking no one understood...

I am sure you are correct that nobody understood the request. It was not until I read your post that I became aware that there is a nested drop-down menu on the home page with short-cuts to the various sub-forums.

Thanks guys! And thanks you for putting the link up!

Unfortunately I think the user felt attacked. I know it wasn't the intent of individual users, but the compilation of posts suggesting that he wasn't trying hard enough or that he was mistaken probably made him feel a little humiliated, even unintentionally. I think he might be using the forums yet, but he hinted that he didn't wish to make any more posts.

Anyways, thanks guys. It's definitely been one of my best online experiences here with lots of helpful information and users always ready to offer suggestions.
