>I got bored half way through your post

. . . thank you.

>But I am talking
>modern nikons not old D40 stuff

I mentioned the D40 . . . and the D800 and many camera models in between. The D40 though, is a camera produced in 2006 originally. Definitely modern, even by digital photography standards. Of course I agree that a 5 year old might think that 2006 is ancient history today since it arrived before he was born. I get that.

>comes to a conclusion....

The problem with brevity online is that it often results in too little information and the concomittant poor understanding of needs. So people respond - it's a discussion and opinion forum after all - based on the information provided. Thank you for this additional bit of information. I do apologize for offering any opinion or thoughts which bored you. It was only my intention to offer suggestions.

Then again of course, the degree to which one responds to a post by a relative newcomer to any forum should, in the main it can be argued, perforce take into account some range of possibilities. For many who participated lightly on Nikonians, early on in their interest in this forum and site, brevity ruled the day until they became more familiar with the pace, rhythms and expectations, contextually, in a wide range of discussion topics.

Nonetheless, brevity, even for relative newcomers to any particular forum, is not necessarily a virtue. Especially at Nikonians, brevity very often masks important detail which makes it easier for contributing members to write the most helpful sorts of posts. Brevity for its own sake, tends also to belie true intent - perhaps inadvertently - and consequently reveals detail much later which could have saved a lot of excess writing and posting by members earlier in a thread.

There is no question though that participation, in and of itself, unavoidably and necessarily produces content that is of value to someone, with emphasis, though sometimes not to the original poster or even a replier in the midst of a particular thread. People, Nikonians members derive benefits from time to time from threads in which they originally took only a passing interest. But some extended or somewhat detailed intramural part of the thread revealed a fact or thought or approach or idea that was novel or interesting or simply factually valuable. Brevity eliminates much of that (if not all of it).

Brevity for its own sake can, in my opinion, on occasion be balefully self-centred (apologies for the British spelling) because it eschews participation by anyone with some general as well as specific thoughts to offer on a particular matter. Some will login to ask a question or offer an opinion, brevity at the fore, and then resist even the slightest conversation that departs from the point or which - because of the minor challenge of the original question in the first place - voices an alternative opinion.

The brevity of the original poster is put to the test at that point, because the poster leaves his point of brevity to chastise a contrary opinion or mete out bits of additional information or otherwise reveal that he or she has failed to absorb the mood and positive environment of the Nikonians forum, thereby placing himself or herself in an unenviably tenuous position of fractious visibility.

Brevity has its virtues certainly. It would seem oddly boring, though, to insist on brevity in a discussion forum. By its fundamental definition in any circumstance, a photography discussion forum is a place in which opinions, facts, problem solving technical matters and creative matters are discussed. The boredom inflicted by strict brevity - at its fundament invariably too little information - seems oddly impractical and pointless and largely counterproductive.

I hope this brief treatise is not unwarranted or otherwise met with cries of "What's all this ruckus!?" Of course I would suggest to anyone who finds the expression of heartfelt opinion to be a boring insinuation or an opinionated challenge offered solely for what inherent merit it may possess to simply avoid participation in things such as discussions in which the possibility that some participant, lurker or casual observer might be bold enough to disturb brevity by offering his own thoughts on a matter brought to hand.
