All I saw were responses to posts such as "Hey I TOLD you that 4 threads ago.." or "What, exactly, makes you think you could ever breed Betta?" and my favorite..."Don't ask stupid questions" ....on the BEGINNERS FORUM.
Wow. I'm just soo glad I lucked out somehow, and got y'all.
Loaches Online FTW!
I also like Planet Catfish. They are nice and friendly. And Fish Geeks.
I don't usually visit other forums, because I find loaches answers almost all my questions.
And mostly I do not have any need of other sites, rarely is a question not answered on here
We do get some posters who tend to stray a bit into that area, but most who post on this site, are friendly helpful people.
If they continue to misbehave, they get banned for a while ( a couple of weeks or 30 days ? )
When, and if, they return, if they continue to misbehave they get a permanent ban.
It is all in the Terms of Service agreement with the forum when you sign up for an account.
Does anyone actually read those before clicking OK ?
Our forum is quite welcoming and "family friendly", many eventually join our aquarium club as well.
The secret is to have many active and patient moderators who really love being in the hobby
Our home website is http://www.kwas.ca and our forum is http://www.kwas.ca/forum

I am proofing the newsletter and the website right now. I hope to be done soon.
Maybe we should be exchanging newsletters, I will send a pm shortly ...
I think that if we added a Do it yourself forum, some of us would apprecieate it. Save some of us money, and most of us would find an easy way to hide it if it does look a bit odd. The point is it works.
What about making a post in the "non fishy forum" here..? I sure would like to see any projects that might be cool/financially helpful! And I KNOW that the people on LoL are some smart cookies, so you'll all probably have some great projects...
Making your own accessories or filters or CO2 bubbler or what ever, is part of the hobby. It is something you do instead of watching some lowest common denominator program on TV.Crissyloach wrote:I am a member on another forum. I have written a DIY project. People are saying "tried this before. Looks like a piece of junk." or "why not just buy it?" It is awful. The project saves money, and I figured some would like this idea. Boy was I wrong. Why do I even bother if I expect rude comments like this?
I have found lots of parts or alternate uses for stuff from the Dollar store or hardware store or where ever. It is just a fun aspect of the fish keeping hobby
Go for it, post it here too
