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

Where the tongue slips, it speaks the truth.

A life making mistakes is not only more honourable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing at all.

This was me with my horse a few years ago. He's not huge, I'm tiny, if you see a shorter than 5ft girl walking petmania in Limerick with blonde or purple hair, that's me.

I think that's one of the reasons this section was started; so we didn't all just pass each other in the shops without realising that we already knew each other!

I wish you had chosen another pic, my daughter joined the forum a couple of days ago and now I won't be able to keep up the argument that she can't have fish and a horse :-((
Unless it's a seahorse :laugh:

Thank you very much! He's my pride and joy. Had him 6/7 years but had to sell up during a deep depression because I couldn't fight harder to keep him. He's been sold a year and a half and hoping to find a kind, local person who will let me use their land.
Would you believe that he was nearly black when I got him? By the time we sold up, he was nearly white.

Bill! :O
There's no greater love than between a horse and a rider! Fish are great and everything but between a horse and a tank..... I know which one I would chose! They're great for confidence and once you know a kind person with land (depending on breed) relatively inexpensive.
