It's probably because of all my posts. Sad But I'm going to try not to post in the OT section as much and only post good quality pictures if I can.

[/Don't sweat it cole, sometimes there just isn't anyway to get a good picture. P.S. the increase in OT posts is probably nothing mire than a  temporary lack of things going on lighting wise   quote]

You guys should try starting a nice discussion about lights in a category other than off-topic, make it so it's more active than the rest, and yes, off-topic is a bit out of hand right now...

I agree the off topic offf subject of lighting part of this site has overtaken what was mainstream comments and discussions on here but also the quality of some lighting pics has gone down hill as well and by that I mean badly taken pictures of distant lamp post tops and indoor pics of fittings that are to high or lit for a camera phone to take a decent picture of but many of them end up on here anyway.
 There are many good members on here and I know of a good few that are tired with some things and behaviour on this site.

To be fair though, this site has always been a bit “look at the new lamp I got for my bedside light” certainly in the time I’ve been a member (four years?).

I had a lengthy discussion with the admins about it and they were happy for things to stay as they were. I have to say I take the rough with the smooth and also being a member of other sites for lighting where they do things differently it’s hard to say which I prefer. I know of one other where they routinely edit what you post to the point of changing capitalisations and position of punctuation, and with the best will in the world I think that just causes annoyance.

Edit: quote should show whitestar’s post. Quoting in mobile doesn’t seem to work.

It would appear that editing is not just a thing of other lighting sites, the quite I made above is not the original exact worded one I made, it’s has been edited and not by me.

Bump, I still think this is an issue.
