FWIW, I did not get any sense of criticism of BSA or Don Murphy from your earlier posts. I have found it almost impossible to reliably "sense" negative feelings in emails and electronic fora unless somebody comes out and explicitly says something negative or adds an "emoticon" (smiley) that suggests negativity. This is because many times people type abrupt responses because they are in a hurry; their terseness which leaves an impression that wasn't intended.whodathunkit wrote:Ok guy's I'm getting the sense of negativity in your response's!
Lack of feedback regarding your posts doesn't necessarily suggest negativity. Consider these points:
1) Even though DT has almost 2000 registered members, more than 40% are "lurkers" (have never posted a single response to the board). Only 1/4 have made 10 or more posts....
2) We are into the derby "off season" for most, so even those that are normally very active may not be following these boards because they aren't thinking much about PWD right now (if that's possible!)
3) We don't have a PWD memorabilia forum, so you are posting to a board for "Car & Semi-Truck Photos". So folks that are most keenly interested in memorabilia may have yet to discover your posts yet because they haven't discovered the right spot.
The point is that the size of your audience right now may be relatively small, and number of folks that might respond (positively or negatively) very much smaller! But much of what you are contributing is timeless...

I suspect that PWD memorabilia is interesting to most folks, and all are appreciative of your photographic contributions (or will be once they see them), but it may not generate a lot of discussion - just appreciation. After all, there is a difference between visiting a museum in person versus seeing photos of the exhibits. However, you may be inspiring some future collectors out there (and thereby perhaps raising the value of your own collection)!
