Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress. I love it! I am not 100% done and still have to make some small changes to the design.

The most important thing is that all 327 posts, 5041 comments and 157 trackbacks got imported successfully and are available.

The bad news is that some links are broken and f#%&ing godaddy exported also the already deleted spam... Now I have an additional 3000 spam comments online! WTF? Why did they include them in the export file? I am glad I am out of there. If you see some weird comments, please be patient until I fix this mess.

If anyone is using some cool WP plugins let me know - drop me a line at nikonrumors [at] gmail [dot] com or just post a comment.

RSS feed and email will be available shortly.

Oh, I forgot to mention - I will be adding some red to the yellow πŸ™‚ Is the red triangle a trademark/tradedress of Nikon?

    Great new site! A few tweaks I see need still be done, otherwise, congrats. Hope it works out well.

    Hi, congrats πŸ™‚

    Is any way to change the colors for the user ? I barely see my own text while writting (it doesn’t appear in black ! a really light color instead). and like the black background (much easier to read and avoid visual fatigue), I’m not used to this blog soft…

    any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

    This grey on white entry and blue on blue backgrounds don’t work so well. I think you’ve gotta change that color scheme.

    As far as Nikon prices on DSLRs at B&H go, I’m wondering if this is really a price increase or if Nikon came down on them for advertising too low a price. Even the D200, which is officially discontinued, jumped from $1000 to $1400. I bet if you ask for a lower price, you can get one, especially since the dollar has been rising lately.

    I checked lens prices as well. The 50mm 1.4 (the old one) jumped slightly in price, but the 14-24, 24-70, 17-55, 18-55 VR, 18-105 and 18-200 all have slightly lower prices as compared with a few weeks back.

    The bigger issue is that only 11 of the 21 lenses priced >$1000 are in stock. So it doesn’t seem like Nikon has made any progress since the Olympics.

  • I am diggin’ it. The only thing is that this text a bit hard to read. But I like the more simplistic and modern look of the site. Nice work.

    Congratulations for the new home. The comment box is a little painful with light gray text in white box!

    So where did you move to? Media Temple? I may need to move soon.

    I like the way the site is getting.

    I use Firefox 3 and still have this issue: when I write a post, all the fields are light, but my text is light too, so I Really HARDLY see what I’m writing…
    Not sure if this is a Firefox issue or related to the blog system.

    The grey background with white text is much better than the blue one.
    I would still choose a little darker grey though (just my opinnion)

    Well, I have to paint my own text to see what I’m writing, so sorry for any typos πŸ™‚
    Hope this fix, Besides of this, the rest is looking very nice

    I see you included sections about Reviews and Pirces, so I will take a look at them. Thanks a lot for that πŸ™‚

    BTW: I also see a really light color on the label of the button “Post comment”, is kind of light green, as the text I’m writting right now πŸ˜•

  • Congratulation for your new launching site, and your new logo is simple and good.Hope more rumors about nikon soon.

  • neat work! loads better than the old one EXCEPT you still gotta take down that shit-talking post about my brother because thats pretty immature, methinks so

  • zing


  • Bergelmir

    Great one! I like the new style, elegant, essential, easy to use.
    A very Nikonious one.
    I also like the quick Buying advisory link.
    Great work.

    Oh no!
    Red is Canon. Don’t go there!
    And what’s up with the strange text field colors while commenting?

  • Get rid of the McCain Ads!!!

  • nnatic

    looks good. i like it better than the old one. i run two workpress blogs and love them.

  • looking hot.
    sorry about the spam!
    am sure you have seen this but :http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/
    it doesnt hurt!

  • AWESOME!!!! WP is rad! Thanks for all the hard work man!

    I’m seemingly very excited!!!

  • Oh, just make sure to set up Akismet, it’s free and easy to register, and you’ll be killer, it blocks every spam bot that comes to my wp blog, I don’t have to do crap.

  • Laurence

    Daaaammmmnn the logo and red swoosh looks so badass

  • Anonymous

    The person dealing wit this web site. You should put much more on a single page before one has to click older pages. It is much too little on a single page

  • eyrieowl

    IANAL, and I don’t know whether the triangle is trademarked or not…but given the trouble canon rumors just went through, I think you’d be asking for it to actually use anything which is recognizably a design element of the brand…. The site will look good without it, imho.

  • lol

    wtf red logo? that’s canon …

  • Cameron: which comment are you talking about – I don’t even know your brother. Please clarify.

  • eyrieowl

    ooh, just was noticing the lack of threaded comments…that is a major step backwards I think. i think threaded comments foster intelligent discussion, the inability to actually relate one comment to another fosters mindless spew…. do they really not have the option to have threading in their comment system? that seems almost unthinkable! pretty please, threaded comments!

    • eyrieowl

      yay! thanks! πŸ™‚

  • eyrieowl

    lol, and i see that as i was writing that you responded to someone else trying to figure out what comment they were referring to…this is exactly the problem i see with the new system.

  • Nice work — really love the graphic.

    You should put another button on the same line as “camera reviews” and “price watch” to click to get back to the blog once on those pages. Clicking the top logo isn’t really too common sense.

  • Hi there.
    Thank you! I would now go on this blog every day!

    Thanks. Yours Anne!

  • Ad Jetten

    you did a great job with this new site! congrats!
    keep the site in the air

  • rhlpetrus

    Good Luck with new site/host. Looks good so far.

  • abzee

    The yellow on black is really irritating, and you could have problems using the red swoosh in association with yellow despite your disclaimer.

  • finn

    I preferred having the “menu” on the left side and
    most of all I really miss the hierarchical comments view
    and the option to get alerted.

  • At least on my screen, the amount of empty black space above your “Nikon Rumors” heading just appears to waste screen space. This means less info actually shows without scrolling. You could also reduce the space under your “where there’s smoke there’s fire”, after the yellow bar, and between articles.

  • Hello.
    It’s better to put reference link

    Good Luck!
