For anyone interested, www.uglyhegehog.com is a site offering a free photo forum with many different categories to meet specific interests or a general help group too. If you post a Q with a specific question(not "help") you should get some helpful feedback. When you sign up you are asked for your location- this can be general,but helps as the forums worldwide. You can give a State,or geographic area if you don't want to be too specific,but it is helpful if your Q would lead to local referenced sites or where you wish to visit.
I've been on it for over a year. Good photog. info. I've never offered an answer or asked a question though. By the time it is sent to me the questions have already been asked and answered several times.
