FujiXspot - Fuji X User Group
Here at FujiXspot, we have a wonderful, friendly membership, great photographers, and (IMO) great forum resources (software, etc). That said, we're not the biggest or second biggest Fuji group around.
With an eye towards doing something fun for the current members and attracting some new ones as well, it's my pleasure to announce a $1000 (USD) March 2015 FujiXspot giveaway.
To enter, all you have to do is post a photo in this discussion thread taken by you during the month of March 2015 with a Fuji X camera (eg, X100, X-Pro 1, X-E2, X20, etc).
You can post any time between now and April 7, 2015, but the photo has to have been taken during March 2015. Click here to learn how to post an image in this thread.
1) Your email on file must be your PayPal address. Prizes will be sent via PayPal on April 8, 2015 to the address on file. No exceptions. Click here to change your email address on file.
2) You must be 18 years of age or older and reside in a place where this sort of sweepstakes is not prohibited by law to participate.
3) You may only post once in this thread.
You can go back and edit that post as many times as you like, but making a second post to comment, etc, will disqualify you from the sweepstakes. The reason for this is that winners will be randomly selected based on post number in the thread, and extra posts would give you extra chances to win. Any comments related to this thread should go here: http://www.fujixspot.com/threads/4761/
On April 8th, I will randomly select 3 winners. The first will receive $500, and the other two will each receive $250. Good luck!
I'm happy to report that the eBook version of my new book "The Fujifilm X-T1 – 111 X-Pert Tips" is now available for download at Rocky Nook. You can get the PDF, the iBook and the Kindle versions (yes, all three of them together) DRM-free by clicking here. You'll also get a discount of 40% by entering the coupon code XPERT40.
It's been a long time coming, and I've changed us over from vBulletin to Xenforo. I was planning to do this next year, but the longer we wait, the harder it will be, and I'm confident that these changes will improve the site experience for the members.
What we gain:
-Better mobile site
-Cleaner design (IMO)
-More stable software
-Better image handling (auto sizing, etc)
What is broken and will be fixed:
-HTML support in forum posts - high priority for me to fix
-Buy/sell feedback (not lost, will be restored)
-Other stuff (tell me)
What is missing:
-Right column Recent Discussions
-Ability to use templates to post in Buy & Sell
-Other stuff (tell me)
