Art, I want to thank you personally for doing so much for this aspect of the hobby by providing a great site for planted tank enthusiasts to interact. I hope to be a little more active in the near future with work finally starting to wind down.
Time for me to weigh in on this topic. I'm excited that we're finally working toward a central location for plant clubs to be involved and to interact. Although I'm a huge proponent of the AGA, I feel like the members are detached from each other and have a difficult time interacting. A webforum such as this would have been very beneficial to the growth of the AGA, but I just don't see it happening in the near future. So, these forums, in particular the APC are an excellent alternative for places for people to meet and discuss planted tank topics.
Now, at the risk of sounding presumptious, I'd like to remind members of the DFWAPC that there are no "for sale" topics to be posted in this particular area. I would like to extend the by-laws to this area with Art's blessings of course. If you want to sell things, there is a for sale section in this particular forum and is the appropriate place to do that. Does that sound reasonable?
Anyways, I hope that this gives us a place to interact with each other and other clubs as well and I plan on doing as much as I can to help make that possible.
