IMPORTANT Announcement - introductions

Recommended Posts

sorry, but I won't approve your intro post until you provide at least some general indication that you're legitimately interested in fish. The information at the top of the forum makes some suggestions regarding content. I hope this doesn't offend anyone who just wants to say "Hi all, nice forum" rather than something a bit more enlightening, but it's for the good of all members, who do not want to be subjected to spam or (for the most part, presumably) porn on a fish forum.

Please tell us a little something about yourself, eg the fish/tanks/plants/shrimp you keep, etc.

Please don't forget to put your location in your profile while you're at it!

ok, there are a few recent intro posts that I can't approve as they don't comply with the requirements above.

If you've posted an intro a while ago and it still isn't visible, chances are you need to put a bit more pertinent info in it so I can update your permissions.

I am getting inclined to the view that an interest in the importation of garra rufa for commercial use falls outside the parameters of hobbyist interest, which is what this forum is for. This matter is currently under advisement.

If all you want to say in your intro is that you're interested in Blade importing these fish so they can eat diseased skin off some people - a concept I find to be of dubious hygienic value to begin with - I'm not sure why you need your membership approved anyway....

Comments?

I agree Lilli, it seems this falls more into a category of fish for medical purposes (which If it offers any advantage to the human I doubt the fish receives any benefit) as opposed to the enjoyment of ornamental fish for hobbyists to enjoy or breed.

You need to make an intro post of your own, rather than replying to someone else's. Unless you have posted an intro and had your permissions changed by the admins, nothing you post will be visible. :alright:

Intro posts which only say something like, "Where can I buy ..." won't be approved. We realise you are probably not a spammer but this is considered a Classifieds post. Our Classifieds forum is intended for use by regular members who have established a relationship within our community. You need to become part of the community first before talking about buying or selling.

We currently do not offer sponsorship opportunities for commercial entities. While we realise shop owners are busy people, if you want to sell stuff to our members, we expect you to engage with our community just like everyone else. This means writing a proper introduction post and occasionally posting in topics other than the Classifieds forum.
