    Anyone up for reviving Firstviews for the start of the 2020s? Simply go out or stay in on the 1st day of the new year/decade, and post the first picture you take. Or was it just any picture from the day? What do you think?

    Why not?
    I remember this one I took 10 years ago. Didn't think it was so long ago!

    I was looking at the closed thread. It seems it died off in 2010 due to diminished contributions. Also there was an attempt to curate the images by having a gallery (separate web-site, now defunct) which must have taken some extra moderation and work.

    I don't see why it shouldn't be resurrected, but I don't think that moderation is reasonable to expect , for example the original had a posting window, so there will have to be some restraint by participants. I like it that there was a "late entrants" allowance for film users so the D&P could be done!

    Sounds good to me. Maybe just do one thread for pics and comments?

    Should be easier to host pics on the forum these days too. Start off using the lounge and see if it is popular enough to warrant it's own room?

    Would you like to rephrase that?

    No just an 8mm bodycap lens. And yes he is.

    I like the idea, I worry there aren't enough or rather, varied enough, forum posters to keep it alive though?

    Late to this thread, but yes, I'm up for it. I miss the old FirstView, and this might help me take more conventional photos.

    Just testing the water for making the revival ongoing... Worth it or not? +/- views welcome.

    Yes, I'm up for it continuing.
    Should the original section be revived? Something for the Mods / Admin to consider?
