    You may have noticed that the big "Moderator", "Subscribing Member", and "Affiliate Patron" banners are gone and replaced with a variety of small, round badges.

    I'll explain here what these badges are and how you get 'em. Here are then six badges, followed by a description of each one:

    Badges.

    1) Moderator badge: You get this one by being one of our volunteer moderators. Thanks to our mods!

    2) Subscribing Member badge: Given to those who support the site by paying a subscription.

    3) Charter Member badge: Signifies that the member is one of the first 100 people to register on this site. Too late to get in on this one!

    4) Affiliate Patron badge: Given to those who attest either that they have used our affiliate links or that they would have used our affiliate links if those were usable in their country / region.

    5) 1000+ Rated badge: Denotes a member who has received at least 1000 positive ratings. Every like, appreciate, wow, agree, funny, informative, winner, or useful counts as 1 positive rating.

    6) Active Member badge: Given to those who have an avatar and have made a certain number of posts within a certain amount of time. This badge comes and goes depending on recent activity. Just like Subscribing Members and Affiliate Patrons, Active Members enjoy an ad-free site.

    I should mention that the forum will break and be beyond repair if any one person gets all six badges.

    Talking to you, @davect01@davect01 :)

    My avatar shows me wearing a cap the "wrong" way round. I could have got more badges if it wasn't because of the way I wore my cap. :dash2:

    Losing a fellow Minolta adept feels a little sad, but I understand where you're coming from. When I leave the house there's hardly ever a Minolta lens, or even any legacy lens at all, in my camera bag. These FE lenses are so convenient indeed! Maybe there's one thing to keep you from selling your lot: selling all those lenses won't get you anywhere near an FE lens, except maybe for the FE 1.8/50 or 2/28...

    I know :(
    Its quite hard for me to part with them - from a sentimental point of view mostly...
    The only MD I was always saying that I won't ever sell was the MD 50 1.4 but after buying the Zeiss FE 55 1.8, that one has stayed in the drawer too unfortunately :(
    So, I basically gave them all (expect the MD 24-35 cause I don't have an alternative equivalent FE wide angle for now) to a friend of mine (who also owns a shop that sells new and used camera gear) to sell them...we'll see how it goes
