I think they only accept profiles that are 100 days old, they are way too high browed there. So you're not missing much.
Both resources here and there provide a good forum to learn about and interact. There are some pretty high- browed comments made in this thread and others. When people are passionate, have nothing else to do or are seeking attention and validation we have been known to come across one way or another. Just try back after x-days and you'll be fine.
The only difference I've seen between the two is that forum seems to post more personal collection photos and they do screen, as you have found out, to keep the interest in their topic sincere. Here like other fan sites, haters will hate. That's all they wish to control/avoid.
Where did the KS pics come from? X-Plus hasn't even posted them to their site yet, and its up for per order on Hobby Search too!
