    Does visiting the forum more make you a better photographer?

    As above. Does it apply to photographer of all experience level? Maybe a newbie will benefit more but the old timer not so much?

    Getting your post-counts up makes you a better photographer.
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    It depends on what you use the forum for. If you're using it for an exchange of Ideas, tips or tricks, it can help you improve.

    In the end, you still need to go out and shoot more else how can you achieve the improvement of pictures part?

    it is the experience sharing and learning that makes the forum so valuable.

    Not discounting the fact that this forum has the most robust B&S to get equipments

    Even as a newbie, i do learn a lot by visiting the forum. I look and learn at pictures that CSers post and the comments given. Practice is the best way to improve!

    The forum, or any medium is like a tool. It really depends on how you use it.

    Yes, it helps to make me sound like a GOOD seasoned photographer.

    I just memorise and parrot out some terms, slangs, abbr., some granny's tales, some theories, etc..., at every opportunity!

    With posts that tells people to talk less, shoot more. I think this forum should be a good learning place.

    that's depends what kind of talk, and what kind of shoot lor.

    talk too much indeed no good.
    shoot too much and don't know what's the photographer shooting also no good, especially no improvement on the skills at all.

    I've learnt a lot by being here, as there are many truly wonderful people in CS that are willing to share if you ask nicely, and intelligently. On my part, the most I can do is try to help newbies who's questions may sometimes go unanswered as I am very much a newbie digitalman myself. You won't believe how stupid I can be at times. I can't believe it myself! LOL!

    Nope. I only learnt mostly about terms/slangs used around here. WTB BNP, Dark/White Side, White lens etc.

    Also on the technicalities (pros/cons) of each individual lenses and good place to find out costs and good stores.

    It's not a really good place to learn about composition...and most talks are mostly about switching camps, Nikonians complaining about the lack of full sensor, lousy ISO...threats about switching to canon side if nikon disappoints again...false rumors of D200 replacements...blah blah.
