    steve6610 got a reaction from Eric A in What to do about the club section?   
    merge it into one, have a section for all clubs to post in, put it down the bottom, 
    instead of having the auction posts everywhere, direct them into the clubs section, seeing as the clubs run them, 
    maybe call it clubs and auctions 
    you could have a sticky for each club, add websites, addresses and meeting times, that way members can easily find a club and where they have their meetings,

    mine was all about water changes, sorting out pep and common bn fry, moved a colony of peps, (3m , 12fm) into a 4x2x2 that had another colony of 10, which most were males,

    steve6610 reacted to ex0h in QLDAF need to change this   
    I think you've nailed it to a degree.  I know half a dozen breeders that have up and sold their setups and moved on.  I've also reduced my own tank count from around 30 at one stage to 1.  Life changes happened, power bills sky rocketed and other things in life became more important.  Lots of people just don't have the disposable income anymore to throw around, and therefore they tend to move onto other things in life.  We can't control that and I highly doubt a software change has pushed away that many people.
    What I found interesting when we changed the forum software, there were lots of positive replies.  A couple mentioned they didn't like it, and to me, it seemed like a few people jumped onto that bandwagon.
    We were a couple revisions behind in versions on the old forum software.  Updates had been attempted, but there was some road blocks we couldn't clear.
     
    Regarding the Layout, can you be a tad more specific? ie. Combining certain forums or the theme and software change?

    Blame for the forum slowing down has been flogged til it's dead.  The only reason it has slowed is because people have stopped posting.  Why people stop posting is an individual thing, and most of it would be down to they are not getting what they want.  Don't get what you want and you loose interest simple, I don't see competitions helping I reckon you  got to give the people what they want.  What they want will be different for all of them but maybe lessons could be learnt from the way it was, what's changed and try to reverse it
    it's started by changing the layout, now just got to try to and get some of the older members back posting

    i agree to some extent, and yes if your paying top $$$$ you would want pics, but i also find unless your good at taking pics it can have the oppisite result, a bad pic can and does lose sales, and also i find a lot of fish change as they grow, so in some cases a pic of the parents would be better, or needed also,
    and its getting even harder now that some sellers won't let you at their place, so pics in that case would be a must,

    All tanks are finally in position and 90 percent of plumbing done.  Will be filling them up tomorrow.  Top tanks go into a nexus and middle tanks into a duel chamber sump.  Hopefully no leaks

    Well now I can say aluminium is good to hold 13 meters worth of tanks. Guessing each tank around 350kg x 13 tanks so very happy it didn't all go to poo

    Very slowly my new fish room is taking shape. I hope the aluminium stands can cope with the weight.  They are made from 40x40 box aluminium that is 3 mm thick and has screws in the legs to adjust their height for uneven concrete. They will be holding 14 tanks 1 meter x 60cm wide x 45 high made by Mick down the goldie.

    steve6610 reacted to gingerbeer in Who gets the one foot tank?   
    The decision was a tricky one.  I reviewed a lot of posts and struggled to make a decision.  Reality is - there are a lot of involved members helping others. 
    I liked the idea of Grover getting it and doing updates of his adventures with the mini-Giant Gourami Grove.  I liked the idea of Bristlenosegirl being acknowledged as the nicest bloke on the forum..... 
    However @johnbetta the tank is yours.  I am a big believer that hobbies grow on new members, learning and loving the hobby.  The simple act of welcoming new members is to me priceless.  Thanks for your efforts for the good of the forum and the hobby. 
    Shoot me a PM.

    steve and stacey kept the crowd amused, and did a great job as auctioneers as normal, 
    all the other helpers did a great job seeing as there were a couple out with medical issues, 
    i was a bit disappointed with the items, or lack of certain things, 
    plenty of nice plants and wood, a few yanks and tropicals, only 1 pep bn, not many bn compared to normal auctions, 
    hardly any africans and 0000 shrimp, 
    so if you went for nice africans and shrimp you went home with your money, lol, like i did, 
    i did buy a couple plants and a nice piece of wood, had a good time and caught up with some friends, 
     
    all in all a good social night that was well run, but lacked what i wanted,
