I don't think there are enough members on here that keep those varanids to make another forum dedicated to them. Sorry

theres no way enough people would go to it. evne on kingsnake which is extremely popular, the MONITOR FORUM which covers all monitors is pretty slow

Well it's not easy and web hosting isn't cheap. You need content, advertisers, members participation. You know forums don't just happen. it takes lots of advertising, dedication and lots of work. Jeffs gone to lots of shows and put tonnes of work into the site.


Anyways, aren't there enough forum sites?

good point lisa. why would you want to make your own? just for the sake of being able to ban people? lol...it would take atleast a couple years of hard work, and a forum for only niles wouldn't get many people anyways

For a good example of the drawbacks of very specialized animal sites, check out this one. There is too little traffic to keep people coming back -- and I guarantee you that the number of V.exanthematicus keepers will be substantially more than those keeping V.niloctus.

That being said, if you do go ahead you will do well to pick better forum software. Whatever one they are using isn't nearly as advanced as the one used for ssnakess.com, arachnopets etc. At the very least, the format here is workable. If, on the other hand, you realize that about the only thing you can do with such a specialized topic is create a board focused on community rather than information, then you might want to consider a listserve. Easier to setup and you can just use it to communicate between "friends."

Cheers,
Dave
