      I'm happy to announce some recent changes to BPN's Forum Guidelines, Member Benefits and Staff.
      First, the changes made to our Forum Guidelines.

      #10 Administrators and Moderators are entrusted with the ability and responsibility of removing objectionable and/or off topic posts. A warning may be sent to the offending party or parties involved. If the rule violations are severe, or if they continue after a warning, a user's privileges to access BPN can be terminated without notice.

      #13Private Messaging is for personal use only - using it as a mass-marketing tool is forbidden. All forum rules apply to Private Messaging including but not limited to- not harassing, agitating, showing hostility towards or being persistently unpleasant or argumentative to another user or Staff Member.

      #15 Members nor Users will be permitted to restrict or inhibit any other member or user from using and enjoying the forum by harassing, intentionally agitating, showing hostility towards or being persistently unpleasant or argumentative. If BPN Administrators or Moderators determine that a user has violated this rule, a warning may be sent to the offending party. If the violations are severe, or if they continue after a warning, a user's privileges to access BPN can and will be terminated without notice.

      #16 If asked by a BPN Administrator or forum Moderator to cease posting content deemed offensive, objectionable, off topic, or in poor taste by said Administrator forum Moderator, you must agree to do so.

      #18 Images should not exceed 250 kilobytes nor should they exceed 1024 pixels on the horizontal side or 800 pixels on the vertical side.

      Green: Text Removed

      In addition to clarifying our guidelines we have added two new forum features.

      While I am swamped getting ready to head to Homer, AK next Monday for the two now-sold-out IPTs and have not had time to study the announcement, I did want to share the details with you here. The new camera will feature a completely new 61-point autofocus system, fast shooting up to 12 fps, an 18-Megapixel full-frame CMOS Sensor, full HD video recording and much more.

      Please feel free to post comments and questions below. I will do my best to reply.

      So many great images and only one IOTY winner!
      That winner is Chris Kotze.

      Please join me in congratulating Chris Kotze for having his image "Catch of the Day" selected as the BirdPhotographers.Net Image Of The Year for 2010!
