Reader Appreciation Day!

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we would like to take some time to thank our readers for reading, helping and supporting this Noisy blog in many different ways!

We recently launched the 1001 Noisy Readers List. We will take that one step further, and everyone on that list will be featured in upcoming installments of the Photography Soup. If you want to showcase your blog, galleries, website, web2.0 content, etc, etc, you can join 1001 Noisy Readers List.

We have a number of interactive features where our readers can participate one way or another, and you are always welcome to leave comments in each post.

Another interactive light-bulb moment was the Support your Local Camera Shop Initiative, where we list local and independent camera shops from around the country.

We have also set up a Suggestion Board using FeVote, where our readers can submit suggestions for this blog, or vote on the existing suggestions.

If you are a blogger or you have a website or an experienced forum user, you are invited to guest-blog here!

We have also created accounts on some of the Web2.0 websites, so if you like to network with 1001 Noisy Cameras, please feel free to add us to your lists! If there's another Web2.0 site we would like us to jump on, let us know and we'll make it happen, if we can :)

    A few suggestions:
    The flash scripts in the page are troubling the experience.. The site takes really long to load.

    My second suggestion would be more content in less post, and less recycling of posts..

    Still waiting for your E-401 as poor man's M8 post on Amin's photoblog..

    Thanks for reading and thanks for your comments!

    There was only one item that used Flash, which was the one causing the slowness. I removed it for the time being.

    I am trying a number of things in parallel, once the tests are over, more things will be removed, which will hopefully improve loading times.

    Things get reshuffled/recycled for various reasons, some of them have to do with the content (eg post is updated, or topic is hot news), sometimes to spotlight something (eg promote Readers List or Local Camera Shops), sometimes to introduce it to new readers, and sometimes for other blog-related or technical purposes.

    My memory cells are like RAM, they lose their content every night. What was the E410 as a poor man's M8 post on Amin's Photo blog? :)
