Newbies: earn rep points!

I've had my K-x for about a month, and have been reading this forum for about 2 months. But it was just today that I discovered out you can earn Rep points toward higher forum participation by listing your Pentax gear's serial numbers! I got 3 points for my K-x and my two kit lenses. (Wish I'd known before I sold my K-1000 body...)

hray, is your avatar a Tri Sheltie?

I like your post... I did the very same just the other night.

And I wondered: Rep = Credibility? lots of rep = perks

Move up from "registered user" to "site supporter" and get those perks and ensure there is a friendly place to post pics and get feedback.

I especially like the way PF has done this. Another photo forum I landed on the other day was so blatant in its upsel to "Platinum accounts" it felt dirty.

Thanks for the forum. I appreciate its depth and general sensibility.

Yes, the avatar is our first homebred Champion Sheltie, Ch. Draco's Admiralty UD. The head-shot is a crop from a full-body shot I made with my Pentax K-1000. In fact, it was to photograph our dogs that I first bought the K-1000. That particular photo session distressed the security guard at the dog show--he was wondering why I was lying on the ground in full dog-showing-attire...obviously, it was so I wasn't shooting down on the dog!

HaHa - I can imagine the look.

Easy animals to grow attached to.
