    Somehow this website got past me. Out of curiosity I went over there and was wowed. In a case like this, I wonder if anyone else would be willing to take over operation of Shutterbugs. That looks like a great website and forum, and I'm sorry I didn't find it sooner. It must take a lot of time to keep it going. I don't know about the financial aspect of running a website, but I'm saddened to see a great gathering place close its doors. But, I suppose the webmaster has already thought about the options before making the decision.:Sad:

    Just read the great news about the new co-owners. Hooray for everyone who loves beautiful photography. Think I'll join and have even more great shots to look at and another wonderful web place to meet photographers from all walks of life.

    I can't get registered:confused:
     
  7. I just registered and it was a bit tricky as the fill-in boxes are some weird :eek: yellows and blues making it hard to review what your input was. Took me about 5 minutes or less to get registered.

    Good luck!

    I got registered and there was an e-mail with my username and password from the website. It said the webmaster had to give the final OK, and I would get another e-mail as soon as everything is finished.
     
  9. The new owners are are already working the site, I just recieved an email from them letting me know I won best of class for the month of July in the scenic category.
