Wanted to comment on the fact that this community is very lucky to be allowed to even post off topic discussions!
It really makes a *HUGE* differance when it comes to the community learning more about each other and being a community....because this forum allows off topic posts once in awhile (obviously lets not go over board here! we have a perfect balance IMHO) it is above and beyond the other forums where your post is deleted and you are given a warning for posting something not about reptiles. That sort of forum creats a very stand offish, aloof feeling. You don't know anybody. But on this forum we see each others pets, kids, hear about each others funny stories, share a joke or two, and are better because of it.
Just wanted to share that as honestly, not many forums allow that, even though I believe its a very overlooked essential part of a true community forum.
