Thanks, forum peeps, for the New Year's message, quoted below. I look forward to participating more in this fine forum. The 'return to civility' clause is most welcome, especially in light of our very diverse membership. Together, we can set the standard for a respectful professional arena of discussion we can all enjoy and profit from.
A happy and prosperous 2015 to you all.
With respect and best regards,
(Apologies to the entire Southern Hemisphere!)
Happy New Year from all of us at the Steadicam Forum.
As we ring in the New Year, we wanted to take a moment and thank you for your participation at the Steadicam Forum. It is your participation that makes the Steadicam Forum such a great place. Very few online forums bring together such a talented bunch of people and we look forward to 2015 with great enthusiasm.
For 2015 we are incorporating some changes to accommodate our growing community. The Steadicam Forum was founded to be a "Professional Forum" for "Professional Steadicam Operators," but as our membership has grown, not everyone knows each other on a first-name basis anymore, and it has become clear with more people posting that more moderation is necessary (and indeed this has been a request from many of you). In short, we are making a concentrated effort now to restore the Steadicam Forum to civility and harbor an atmosphere for Professional Steadicam Operators to talk about professional gear as well as the trials and tribulations they face daily on professional sets.
Please come by and check us out.
Thank you and Happy New Year!
