Retirement and forum shutdown (17 Jan 2022)

Hi,

John Howell who has managed the forum for years is getting on and wishes to retire from the role of managing it.
Over the years, he has managed the forum through good days and bad days and he has always been fair.
He has managed to bring his passion for fish keeping to the forum and keep it going for so long.

I wish to thank John for his hard work in keeping the forum going.

With John wishing to "retire" from the role of managing the forum and the forum receiving very little traffic, I think we must agree that forum has come to a natural conclusion and it's time to put it to rest.

I am proposing that the forum be made read-only from March 2022 onwards and that no new users or content be created. The website is still registered for several more years, so the content will still be accessible but no new topics or replies will be allowed.

If there is interest from the ITFS or other fish keeping clubs, we may redirect traffic to them or to a Facebook group but will not actively manage it.

I'd like to thank everyone over the years who helped with forum, posted a reply, started a new topic, ask a question and helped a newbie in fish keeping. And thank you to the sponsors who helped us along the away. Hopefully it made the hobby stronger.

I'd especially like to thank John Howell and Valerie Rousseau for all of their contributions, without them the forum would have never been has successful.

Thank you
Darragh Sherwin

I'm no expert but I'd think rather than laying out the plugs like that you really need to look at the current being drawn by each peice of equipment and lay it out equally a cross all the plugs you have.

It kind of like like your going to have about 200 plug socks going into one plug in the wall??

Will the combination of those not exceed the 13amp fuse in the first plug?

In fairness Chris & Robert - it's not that far off reality!

@Paul - you get a prize if you turn something on and it actually turns on in the tank you expected!

@lemonjelly - labelling started!

Sure hasn't fish keeping become a lot more power friendly recently. Just make sure the first extension lead is surge protected :)
