Now that Blackmagic Designs finally has its own forum in their company web site I wonder how much longer will take AJA to do the same. I love the Creativecow for news and tutorials, but I prefer the individual forums provided by the companies that make the products. Mostly because of the streamline design and user friendliness. The only thing I don't like is the censorship and the no speculation policy.
I totally agree with Walter. Cow is perfect for AJA - I have joined the Blackmagic forum, but I have yet to post a single post on it. Many companies want to have their own forum, to censor problems with products - ("gee, you are the first person reporting this problem - we have never seen this") - both Walter and I have been in this exact situation with AJA on the Kona, and it was due to COW that the TRUTH was exposed. This certainly applies to Blackmagic, and countless manufacturers that do not want their dirty laundry to show - and only Creative Cow allows this to happen. So I hope that AJA does not create their own forum - Creative Cow works perfectly.
