Yeah but people will answer a post just as fast in the cornsnake forum as they would in some "emergency" forum. Besides, lets say you have a cornsnake emergency, who do you want reading the post mostly? People who keep no corns, or just a couple corns but whos interests are elsewhere? Or on the corn forum where you know you will have the right answers, from corn people.
Besides, how fast can a "emergency" be handled over the internet forum? LOL just as fast as asking in the species forum
Its a cool idea, I just personally think it would be a waste of space in the long run. Then again this is IMHO.
