Don't have any Fuji stuff so no real views on whether there should be a separate site. An image forum - absolutely. But, I'm not sure it would work. It's hard to think of any image forum that works. Most image sharing sites and forums rarely get past 'great shot' type of commentary. And most of us aren't very good at saying 'bad shot'. So if there is no real meaningful response to images it's not really forum. I would love it to work - I'm just not sure how you make it work. Personally, I've been losing interest in gear talk for a long time and don't really bother with it any more, but that's just me. Clearly a lot of people do like it, or like having gear and images combined.

Hmm I don't really understand what Xtogs stands for. The X is obviously for the X series, but what is / are togs?
I'd love a pure photograph oriented website, although like olli said, it would need a bit more "spice" than the image forums here on SC to keep it from fizzling out into a comatose state...

tog being short for photographer. It may seem a bit obtuse, but I think enough folks will "get it".

ah! I've seen them labeled photog's before, but don't recall seeing 'tog's... ah well, never too old to learn

I'm trying to register on the X forum but it's just hanging with the jigsaw puzzle piece just spinning....humph!

Photo only site sounds a nice idea to get away from gear talk. You've mentioned it before and I've been curious how that would work out. I fear though that flickr beat you to it with that idea!
I'd like to see more of documentary style photography and the stories behind them. I've got a huge book sitting beside me, 75 years the very best of life. Now if you could produce a forum with that kind of stuff, then I think you would have visitors. Darn forgot his name, Brady I think, on mu-43 ran a thread once with a snapshot of his life and it was really interesting. A forum with those kind of threads would definitely draw me in.

As long as people don't think it means "ex photographers" .
Maybe something like this....

I like this idea! One account gets you into the entire SC network!

That looks pretty good, but black and white seems an obvious choice (with perhaps some silver), but it's your site.
