Listen to Enya 'Watermark' instead of more contributions back-and-forth on the topic here at NG.

Well, I might have a limited sense of humor, but sometimes I read comments here on NG I consider good humor or funny, the last one from Birna is not bad at all. My favourite from last year stems from a post from Elsa, the post is "Ballad of a horse or two" The dialogue goes like this:


Elsa:3 week old cuteness. I cant think of many baby animals that are not cute. Except a mosquito I think

Jakov: Donkeyyyyy

Birna: Very cute, even adorable. By the way, a wriggling mosquito larva is quite cute too. On a very small scale, of course.

Elsa:

Dearest - whatever you are smoking - please share!  ;D

Bjørn - knock yourself out - that one you can keep  ;)

Thank you for the kind (i think! ) comments  ;)


Actually I get a lot of inner pictures, plus a good laugh.

Thank You

Is it worth attempting to make an animated GIF from this material?

You'd want to save quite small (filesize) versions of these, but it might be worth doing

I'm no expert at this, but even when you didn't plan the shot in advance, it can sometimes produce interesting results

To make it clear: neither I nor the NG admins would like a future critique based upon watermarks.

That is a rather strong statement. And by the way, who's is Birna ? Bjørn's wife, sister, relative, unrelated ?

Well, I kinda like that… who ever Birna is. She means to say that
cool common sense should prevail… I hope.

A moderator is just some one with the ultimate power to suspend
— read to ban — as I don't remember seeing a moderator that mo-
derates for the well being of communities.

If it weren't for Birna this community wouldn't exist, it was all but destroyed by a certain person in the Southern hemisphere.

Birna and the crew resurrected NG and we like it to be kept a quiet, peaceful place.  That is why many of us are here.

I suggest that you write up a rule book, on what can be said or not. To keep the “place quite and peaceful”....

On NG, adult behaviour is expected.

I am unable to see any of Nikon Shooter’s photos, all I see is a empty square and the topics have a question mark in a circle, yet obviously some people can see his posts, can someone tell me why?
