site needs a update

Postby Essox on 17 Dec 2018 02:09

Haven't been online in a long time, looks like i'm not the only one. this site needs a face lift and a reboot might get people interested in the site again and back to its former glory!

Agree. It's been very quiet recently as most of our original members who were the driving force are no longer keeping fish.

Any suggestions as to what can be done? We could do with a new Admin. Someone with phpBB experience would be great.
Regards,

Ken

I'd be happy to help... can't say I've much if any experience been an admin.

It would be great if the sponsors came on board and promoted the forum in their shops to gain new members and bring new life...

A lot of people in the hobby use sites like adverts and donedeal. May be worth trying to post a link on their. Also Facebook is always a good place to get the name out. I know of a few Irish groups there.

Yea not a bad idea when the club starts getting membership again. I started a fb page a few years back but left fb not long after. This forum was always a good place for information from experienced keepers.

Hi,
I think to reborn this forum here should be news from the industry (as example from reefbulder, why not repost news, topics and reviews here), new equipments reviews, do some researches and experience story with different products from users.
Do not do this site as site for sale, the main purpose should be about aquaristic hobby and communication society.

Hi all.

Essox has been promoted to Admin. ( big pay rise ). It`s time to revamp the forum and club.
New blood ( along with old blood ) is needed.
I`m trying to organise a meet up to get the glory days back.
Elect a committee and give new ideas in.

Hi Lads,
First post, definitely think the site is missing a trick not having a community or group on facebook. Recently set up a facebook page myself with a friend to follow fish only groups and its all Northern Ireland based. Facebook it so handy with the app and easier to access might be worth giving that a go?
