    That behaviour is happening in spades on the official BMD forum. Repeatedly new users start threads that are virtually identical to threads started a few days earlier!

    Endless and without zero research. Funny thing is, I did this exact same thing years ago, not here and got crucified for it. I realized how stupid it was, apologized, found the right thread and asked for mine to be closed. I don't understand why most of the new users have to argue about it. It's mind-boggling to me.

    Also I stay away from the official forum unless I'm looking for a very specific thing I know is not here. Think I have 30-40 posts there

    report repeat threads (even better with a link to an already existing thread) and we can close and re-direct them.

    I do Jason and I've never seen action taken. Also report guys bumping for sale threads endlessly that never change prices.

    Though I will add existing links which I've never done before but only makes sense to do.

It's a great improvement and alone would help out.
    I know this post is in reference to the thread I started where I graded with variation some of John Brawley's short film clips BMD had provided in RAW for download. I updated it and put more context around my post. Coming from having owned a Sony F55 for 3 years working on everything from TV commercial projects for big brands to small indie projects like music videos and film, I wanted to share my first thoughts on working with the images from the mini 4.6k and open it up for any discussion. It wasn't so much a "look at my grading" post, it was meant more for discussion.

    In the footages section right now on the first 3 pages there isn't one thread with graded images from John Brawley's short film shoot. Poking around a few days later I did find one in the "general discussions" section of BMCuser.com but aside from being in the wrong section that I'd never find it, I decided to start my own discussion post and as mentioned felt it warranted it.

    Now onto more serious matters, looking through only 2 pages of posts you've made here on BMCuser.com with your attitude and language I'd actually say you're far more of a problem for a friendly forum like BMCuser.com then someone who wants to start their own thread for discussion. This is a forum after all that is discussion based. My advice for you is to simply report posts you feel need to be addressed and let moderators do their job because otherwise it's people like you who think they are contributing to a forum by policing it when in fact it's people like you who give nice forums like this (especially to new people) a bad impression or bad experience. If you were actually trying to helpful here on BMCuser.com you would have seen I had 23 posts to my name and adjusted your attitude or tone towards my post. But you didn't and it's obvious you feel the need to carry some authority around here. Simply let moderators do their job, it will go a long way.

    Lastly if you really don't like how BMCuser.com runs itself with limited (and likely free) resources then why come here? There's really no need for any negativity towards members and moderators for that matter. This is a forum for crying out loud, we're not sending people to Mars here. Maybe start your own forum with your own rules and run it how you like.


    These are not even 2 months worth of your posts:

    Actually, we do see and act upon all of the reports, it just might not always be your way. We've always taken a more laid back approach here, because frankly there hasn't been a ton of content until fairly recently. The release of the URSA Mini has really grown our user base, so expect things to slowly evolve.

    Vic, you're good with reporting posts, and it's really appreciated. I do have a request: would you mind not sandbagging other threads with complaints? It's seriously demoralizing to OPs to have their threads go off topic because they didn't put something in the appropriate place or made a mistake. The same laid back approach that allows for these kinds of mistakes is the same approach that allows your comments to remain. We haven't censored you, and you're a frequent contributor. I like your posts when you actually post something helpful. The posts that complain are the ones that tend to throw threads off-topic. This is just a request (respectfully).
