hello, pls be nice

Last reptile forum I went on, I posted asking for advice and some stuck up child replied basically talking down on me because I didn't know everything in the universe about snakes and was asking for advice. I then got banned from the forum just for replying to him calling him an idiot for what he was saying but in a polite manner.

I then dm'd one of the admins basically saying why was my message removed what is this lol and then he banned me for "abusing an admin". Yeah apparently politely asking an admin why your message got removed is "abuse". So that forum is basically a joke as far as I can tell. Hopefully this one actually has mature people on it so hi =)

Welcome to sSNAKESs!!

We frown upon anyone talking down to anyone due to inexperience...that will get you banned quickly (or put in a corner for a "time out"). We've actually had a few people like that recently and they are nowhere to be seen lately, so I'm guessing they went elsewhere, and probably not by choice.

Ask away, and we'll comment on your questions, i.e. answer as best we can. There are many active UK members here, so you're in good company.

Re: hello, pls be nice

Welcome to sSnakes. I think that you will find this forum has people that are a bit more understanding than some of the other snake sites. That said, I have seen people ask for advice here and then want to refute and argue over every suggestion offered by experienced snake keepers because their recommendations did not agree with what that person wanted to do. Please feel free to ask any questions at all, but if you don't agree with the recommendation, either disregard it or perhaps ask for clarification. The people here really are friendly and are more than willing to help anyone who asks. So, what type of snake do you have (or will be getting) and what questions might you have?

Hello! I've only been on here a couple of months and have found everyone to be both helpful and courteous.
