I have a few sugestions for the forum

Is there any way you can have sub forums?
Like have a forum titled "Fresh Water Fish"
Then when you go into it there is a new list of Bettas , Livebearers, Cichlids ect...

What do you think? I also think that we should have alive chat room if we could

I am not sure what you mean by NEW Bettas, but we already have a Betta section. There is also a Section called Species Specific under the Freshwater Fish area that is supposed to cover the other species than the Betta. In effect the different Sections are SubForums.

We do have any informal chat area



The idea of a formal chat area was decided against by the members.

.... you did not get what i said. Ill try again.

ok at the moment the forum looks to clutered/ big with all the links for the boards on the front page. I think that we sould have sub boards so the links will go into a link that has all the links to boards in it.Like ont he front have:

Fresh water:
Beginer
General
Plants
Fresh water Fish
Disease

then if you click fish it does into a list with links to boards:

Bettas
Liveberors
goldfish
ect...

that way you can go to a board where all the info on that type of fish is. I t would also help new people around the forum.

Okay, I see what you want. You would like the "Freshwater Fish" Section divided up into sub sections. The new Betta section brought out of the Freshwater Fish Section because there were so many Betta questions. I suppose if Mike has the suggestion, which I am sure he will be reading, he will get back to us on it.

kinda

but have the

-Etc.
hidden till you click on fish so the page goes into another page where you chose the fish you wont.

does that make sense?

Yup. It's possible with this forum script, too.

Basically, the Forum is pretty clean.  The only section you have in question is the Freshwater Fish Species Specific.  I think we need to keep in mind that there are a limited number of people in the area of setting things up.  They do not work full time setting the forum up.  They all have jobs elsewhere. 

While these things may be good ideas please be aware that it may take a while to get an answer or decision. 

I am sure that Mike will wade in here and put a comment in soon.

I understand

We could also use this for the saltwater fish types.

I like the suggestion but it'll take some time to move topics to the new subsections. We'll also have to move topics that people post in the incorrect sections... Not a big deal, just kind of a headache. I do, however, think that having subsections would make navigation easier on folks looking for specific information. I'll start with the fish species that are getting alot of questions/posts.

I'll try to tackle this over the next few days.

Thanks Gang,
Mike
