Canon were, BUT 3D are better.
It has come to my continued attention that Newbies are engaging some members in PM’s, before they have made a single post on the open forum, this practice only benefits one person “The Newbie” and no one else. :(

Please explain that you would prefer them to make a post first then PM for further private assistance if they so wish, that way everyone can benefit from their related issue....;)

Great reminder!

I actually have a template response when people message me privately. Feel free to use it yourself! ;)
