No more For Sales on F5/F55 Community

All,

 

As of this Sunday AM EST we will be deleting all For Sale posts within the F5/F55 community section. This gives you enough notice to move your posts elsewhere. Please use other internet based resources to sell your equipment and not this community.

 

Thank you

 

Regards

 

Peter

Peter, I have a feeling this forum is (sadly) going down hill. A hugely wasted opportunity for Sony (as I have flagged up hundreds of times).

Is it possible to get a full archive of the contents... in case one day it vanishes? There is a lot of useful stuff here.

Finally! It was about time. This is very good. I complained about it years ago. You come here for info and all you see is for sale thread after for sale thread. It turns it into a mess and gives an exodus vibe to the whole thing.

 

I think this contribuited a great deal to this forum going down. It looked disorganized and somewhat desperate.

Peter,

That has been a while that some complained that this Community page never gat to the level of the Red Users one. A lot of very interesting discussions and infos are avaible here and please keep them there. F5/55 haven't finished their lives, far from it. And using them without the ideas and knowlage I gat from your site would have been more chalenging and less rewarding for me.

Instead of pushing away those who want to sell their gear, I beleive you should like Red User does create more entries and let people talk on separate pages about lenses, raw, logs, sells...

I wish also Sony would give you and your team more time to answer and discuss with the users, it really seam to be impossible for you to answer some times and that is not the way Sony should handle it's user community.  

Thanks anyway for what you do with the time they gave you and thanks to all folks that share here.

I support this decision... in a way everybody selling suggests that the sun is setting on a perfectly great camera system. It isn't. Thank you Peter.

The forum looks much better already. Not a single for sale thread on the first page. It looks clean and nice.
