New Section?

What are the thoughts about a Do It Yourself section? Occasionally people make posts about creating diffusers, reflectors, light tents, etc. Additionally, it could be used to post tips on repairs that don't require having equipment returned for service (like the thread on SDM repair).

Hi Tom,

Try running a search on the homepage or in the forum: we already have such a section.

The Articles section of the forum is often a well kept secret, since the articles don't always generate comments. However, it is a great approach for the DIY section, as it is much easier to browse the topics, since they all have their own thread.

I've gone ahead and added a "latest post" block to the articles section on the forum homepage, hopefully that will make it more noticeable!

The article section has been here about as long as you have- but the dedicated DIY section was added later (at least 2 years ago, though).
