I've seen the little flags telling a general idea of where everyone is from, but I'm wondering about how many people are from Canada, or more specifically Alberta. I'm wondering who all may live around me, I typically try to make friends from area's around me however so far I've only really had interaction from two people on the site, Babelfish and Frank, so I was wondering how many other people might live around me and love their fish lol.

The "little flags" really help by telling us at least what
nation we are from, and in some cases what "State" we are
from. It is a good way, as you say, to see if anyone is
possibly within visiting distance. As you probably have
noticed by now, our members are from nearly every nation
in the world. Which, in a sense, makes us a rather unique
site with folks from all sorts of backgrounds and fish,
living in their bodies of water that many of us could only
dream of seeing in real life.
Many have other interests, and different ways of making a
living. That is what the "Recovery Forum" and "Chat Room"
is for. To exchange ideas, thoughts, and get to know each
Have fun!

Well I sport the australian and Maryland flag. I grew up in the US, mainly in maryland, and moved to australia after marrying an aussie that I met here .

Site participation has gone down a lot we used to be really active. I think I lot of our original members had other things pop up in life and we haven't had a lot of active new members.

Babel - you and the big 'A' got hitched! wow means all the hard work Adam put into this site was worth it!

I'm From Huddersfield in West Yorkshire (England)

The key problem is most of the younger memebers back in the day (myself included) had nothing else to worry about or really do ... no facebook or anything so forums where a good to waste time (learnt a lot also but generally it was just something to do)

Now old, going bald with a wife and kid its rare I get chance to frequent forums ... I spend most of my time trying to catch up with friends on Facebook ..... I have found a couple of people from here on Facebook -- heres an idea why doesnt Adam/Babel make a Fishprofiles page - members can join and maybe it'll inject more intrerest in what i've always thought of as the friendliest none anal Fish site on the web.


EH UP!!!

I still lurk when I have a moment. Working allot of hours and lots to do around the house keeps me away from the computer. This is my favorite aquarium web site, friendly and helpful members. I live in Redlands California by the way.

I'm from SC, as indicated by the little palmetto flag. I chose to give my fish away when I moved from Washington back to South Carolina so I was out of the hobby for a bit. I didn't want to split up a good community or have them die by trying to move them 3000 miles. We are getting a 60 gallon tank soon and I am doing research on different habitats, trying to decide between marine and fresh. This place has always been the best for advice without the holier than thou attitude you find on some other sites.
