    Mike, you have posted some great photos on FTU and I'm not suggesting you should stop doing so.

    This forum has 317 active members with FTU currently having 49 and the OS being in the process of being updated. Seems a shame not to share those excellent photos on here where they will have a much wider audience, as well as on FTU. As Graham said, we have international members on here, even a few Upside Down Aussies who also contribute and post great photos

    There are several non uk members, as this site is centred on Olympus rather than the whole FT/MFT cameras.

    You are more than welcome here as well as the other sites.

    Me too Phill and there are a few quirks to get your head round. I'm not a member as I feel one forum is enough but as this one is going to get the same update I do find it interesting.

    If you not logged in you can see latest post. If you logged in you can't see it. It is a mystery why and why it can't be fixed. I am not motivated at all anymore. I am going to wait.

    Not to put you off FTU, but as you are using an Olympus lens as part of your setup, posting your photos here is perfectly reasonable and to be welcomed.

    If anyone tells you otherwise, point them in my direction or any of the admins

    I think the problem is, the software previously powering these 3 sites and galleries has now become obsolete, hence the Vbulletin upgrade will be applied eventually. Just as the progression to Win 10, the upgrade is whats termed "progress" and something we have to accept, like it or not.

    Personally I can't see the point in being a member of very similar forums within the same group and ownership but posts on this thread proves others feel differently.

    I have had a look at Four Thirds User over the last couple of days and I have to say I much prefer the lay out of this site.
    I find it easy to navigate, easy to post.
    The lay out is more pleasing to the eye that the other site.

    Just my opinion.
