It's been a little over a week now since we sent out the first Light Cafe newsletter, and to say that the response has been underwhelming would be, well, a gross understatement.

Did you like it?
Did you read it?
Was it a complete waste of time?
Should we do another?
What about the format?
Were the articles of interest?
Would you consider contributing to a future issue?
Bueller?
Bueller?
Is there anybody out there?

In all honesty, I haven't read it properly as yet. I had a quick look through when it was first published, and it looked to be quite interesting, but I haven't set aside the required time to read and give it my full attention (and I've a lot of work on atm). As such I haven't offered any feedback as I can't present my full opinion. Hopefully I will over the weekend, although I would say that I'm not overly fond of reading large amounts of text on a computer screen (I stare at a computer all day through my work). If I print it out or maybe if I invest in a kindle it would appeal to me more.

From what I have seen, I think it is an excellent idea, and particularly useful to infrequent visitors to the LightCafe. As I check in here (albeit briefly) on an almost daily basis, the overview of interesting posts etc. has limited value to me, but I am looking forward to more in-depth articles, experiences advice and tutorials.

That said, my preference would be that such articles be posted in the forum when I can read them as "bite-size chunks" and maybe a newsletter compiled from these for more infrequent visitors or to extend the readership.

Struggling to think of how I can contribute at the moment, but no doubt at some stage I'll come up with an idea should it continue. Thanks for putting in the effort and ideas to keep this an excellent and active community.

What about the format? It worked but stay flexible...
Were the articles of interest? I liked the water drop article particularly and, although i won't tackle it myself due to limited time, i did learn from it

Bueller?
Bueller?

I would very much like to see articles from you. (Notice the plural...) I think that you have LOADS of knowledge that would benefit everyone, including myself.

Hey thanks Aaron. I'm happy to give it a go. Phil gave a suggestion a few threads away I'm happy to do that.

Aaron: is there anything particuarly you had in mind? Why not PM me and i'll give it a go over the Christmas break. Yes, I'm taking Christmas off this year! :)

Pete, if you were to write something up for issue 2, that would be fantastic!

I have to admit, I didn't read it in any great detail. But it was a good prod to force me to have a peek back in.

thanks for the prod- I read it and liked it. I especially appreciated the explanation on how to shoot water drops so I'm planning to try it this week.

Just to say I have just finished reading the newsletter. Great articles and it didn't take as much time as I anticipated, and didn't have any problems with reading it on a computer screen. Good work all, looking forward to many more issues to come!
