    what happened to all the old crew?
    I’ve seen Dennis and Amph posting on R2R, and the “mockers” have popped on but didn’t bother to chat?

    I know what you mean, it has been quiet recently. I think it was a combination of factors - some of the bigger posters here were busy with life in general and stopped posting on forums, and I think that had a knock-on effect. It would be great to see old members back here though - see if you can persuade them to pop in again! :D

    What have you been up to? Yeah, life got in the way for a lot of us. I and a lot of the others still come around at times but seem to not post as much.

    That's a great idea! :thumbsup: Do you have anything in mind? What do you think would be likely to get some of the regulars back?

    It's better used to get new members, "refer a friend to sign up and enter".

    We could donate a $100 model HOG.5 scrubber for it.

    About the same, working 60-80 hours a week doesn’t leave a lot of time for posting.

    I’m still popping in and out as well. The water here got really stagnant but nothing a big water change wouldn’t help!

    I log in now and then, although I'm tankless and have been that way since about 2012.

    I got irritated with one of the mods several years back and decided to distance myself from this site because that mod seemed to have unfaltering support from the site owner. Can't battle that, so I left.

    I see that person hasn't been here in a long time, so hoping the site is more friendly and helpful now. Best to all.

    About 5 years ago we had Bifferwine and Yote. They had large tanks and a lot of knowledge. To really bring a board alive you need leaders who have the time to help beginners and have intelligent discussions with advanced reefers.
