Hi everyone. I have been a PN subscriber from year 2007. I cut my internet teeth on this site. I must acknowledge I have been able to hone my photography skills thanks largely to the excellent discussions and guidance PN forums provided. In year 2007 I came to know about PN when I was doing some net research whether to go Canon way or Nikon while converting to the digital photography. When I started out with my first digital camera, a Nikon D40x, I joined PN as a subscriber with a lot of enthusiasm. I posted my portfolio, chatted around in the forums and learned a lot about photography thanks to some stalwarts here in the administration as well as some enthusiastic and capable members. Those days one used to get a lot response to individual pictures posted which were really good. Within half an hour of posting a picture in critique forum one would get at least 6 to 8 ratings and as much critiques. Many a time I had the pleasure of getting into the Top rated photo ranks. Over the years I believe PN members have become more sedate. What I perceive now is that PN is still an excellent medium when forum discussions are concerned. One can still get an exciting discussion on photography subjects. Some exciting heated discussions too. But when it comes to pictures themselves, I feel the members' response is quite cold. A fairly good picture by any standards gets far fewer comments and clicks compared with other net forums. My recent pictures of California, Arizona and Utah have been languishing in my portfolio without much notice while the same ones have attracted thousands of clicks- in one case 30,000 plus- and innumerable comments on other forums. Then, the Nikon Wednesday Pic. I clearly remember, about two years back, each Wednesday thread used to attract 100 plus responses. Toady it hardly ever crosses 60-70. What could be the reasons that people are less interacting with photos? I guess one reason could be the display. Allow me to say the current PN display leaves a lot to be desired. Once uploaded you will not like your own photo. I don't know why but this does not happen with other forums. Another reason could be the lack of a proper Android/iOS app. People are on the move and they can very well keep in touch with the proceedings here on PN if a proper PN app was there. If one checks Alexa rankings, PN id doing worse day after day, and Alexa ranking is going southwards- from 4000 in mid 2012 to 10,000 in mid 2013, lately there is a slight uprise. Bounce rate is 65%, up 9%. Daily time on site is down 19 %. How fast does the site load? Alexa says "Very Slow", 90% of the sites are faster. So, what is PN doing about it? Does it not want to upgrade itself regarding the look and feel and come to the current standards set by the likes of Flickr and 500px? Many of PN's competitors are allowing Full res uploads. Their display of members' pics are slick and gorgeous. To top it all their administrators don't pare down their paying members by harsh comments and admonitions. I am posting this out of sheer care and concern about this photography forum of which I am a proud member and a concerned critique.
