I'd like to let everyone know that there have been several exciting developments recently at APC. First, we have a new parent organization, CrowdGather. Sanjay Sabnani is the Chairman of the company and recently introduced himself to the moderators. We're now part of a large group of forums that cover a wide variety of interests. CrowdGather has a skilled team of forum experts that will work behind the scenes to ensure that we maintain our status as the best aquarium plant resource on the Internet.

As a group of moderators, we've grown increasingly excited about what this change means for APC. This summer you should see a level of activity and energy that hasn't been possible before. New contests, expansion of the PlantFinder, improvement of the Fertilator, and several new projects will be announced over the next few months. One of the first will be to help CrowdGather set up a nice display tank for their office.

The look of APC may change slightly as a few changes are made to improve functionality and the appearance of the site. Rest assured that the core mission of APC has not changed and this site will continue to be directed by hobbyists.

Second, the other moderators have asked me to step in as a new administrator. I look forward to continued association with them and with all of you. This continues to be your site and we'll be looking for new ideas and interesting discussion from everyone.

You'll notice that I've changed my User Name from guaiac_boy to BryceM. I've been wanting to do this for a while and it seems like a good time to make the change.

Finally, an enormous thanks to Art Giacosa and Gnaster who founded this community several years ago. We still miss them and wish them the best in their future endeavors. We will all be working to maintain the friendliness and quality of the site to the standards they developed. Stay tuned!

Cool!
Congrats guiac.... or should I say: "Bryce!"

I trust we'll see groovy pics of crowdgather's tricked out "flagship" tank for APC?!?

Any chance for some google optimization for the pictures. I notice we don't really make the grade when it comes to having our pictures out there to see. Its a shame though, the pics in the plantfinder alone could bring in some new interest.

Congrats Bryce! Looking forward to the changes at APC. Good to see that the hobbiest will remain the driving force and not profit
My words exactly. Can't wait to see the new amendments.

This is great to hear. Improvements to the site will be welcome!!!

Some things that I would like to see changed is that the home page be updated, there are several events that have not been changed for months. Maybe we can get the tank of the month back. I believe everyone would enjoy to see this.

Of course Congrats to Bryce!!!

Congrats Bryce. If anyone knows how to grow a great tank, it's you. It's been a real joy to spend time here and to get much needed advice. The friendly free atmosphere is much to be appreciated! :D I look forward to the new changes.

Congrats!

-hey... just a thought, but wouldn't it be awesome to have a live webcam feed on the crowdgather (or some other...) display tank playing on the homepage? :cool:
I like this idea!
Oh, and "Howdy, and WELCOME to the community" sanjay!

Congratulations Bryce. You deserve it.

There are also some "stickies" in each forum that are three or four years old and out of date or no longer relevant that could be updated or replaced with something fresh.

We are all looking forward to the exciting changes to keep this site cutting edge and informative for all of the faithful members here.

Speaking as one of the moderators, I'm truly excited with the latest developments that have taken place recently, as I think we all are.

Robert, the stickies are one of the things that have been discussed, so we will be moving forward with that in the near future.

And a big congratulations to you Bryce. With you in charge, I know things are going to go smoothly for everyone involved. :)
