Hi folks,

As you probably noticed, there is now added "Follow@ricohforum" Twitter button. I hope to feed it with some Ricoh information and news on the go. In these days, I have very little time to do my usual comparisons that take time to prepare and post. So I decided to try this new communication channel that should allow me to post some quick news and ideas about the Ricoh cameras. I'm now also looking for an eye-fi card that would allow me to wirelessly upload photos taken with the Ricoh cameras to my iphone and then to twitter and this forum. In a theory, it sounds great. But only time will tell if it's usable or not ;) In any case, it would be interesting to test Ricoh's support of the Eye-Fi card in most recent cameras (CX5/6 and GRDIV).

The second change I did to the forum was removing the Skype button. During the time, it proved to be more or less useless. I was usually offline and even if I was online, virtually nobody used it ;) And because it also caused some page slowdowns, I decided to remove it.

One thing that would be nice is feed it new topic titles.

I am @ZDP189 on twitter, BTW.

I can't find the twitter button and I can't find the forum on twitter...

I will look for the possibility to tweet the forum news. But I'm not quite sure about tweeting all new topic titles, because this could make the ricohforum twitter too crowded with messages. But who knows? If I find a way how to do this, we may give it a try ;)

As for the missing twitter button, try refresh the forum page or eventually, try to delete browser cache.

Ehm, it seems it lasted only one day and 4 tweets. The Twitter account is now (from some unknown reasons) suspended. I'm investigating it. Stay tuned.

Hey, good news folks! After 19 days of waiting for answer, I got a news that the ricohforum twitter will be unsuspended in 24 hours. Unfortunately, they did not mention what was the reason of the suspension. So we can only hope this time it will last for a bit longer than just one day? ;)

Hmm...24 hours later and the account is still suspended. This is really ridiculous :(

We are finally back! It took "only" three weeks to get the twitter account active again;) And I still don't have any clue, what was the reason of suspension? Anyway, we are back and that counts. Hope it will last a bit longer this time? ;)
