We had a TOTQ contest, until every single tank that won ended up crashing, or being shut down soon after, only to have the contest be labeled as cursed. We had the resignation of several moderators, which piled more work into the remaining ones. We had massive complaints from paying Vendors about members who were constantly selling frags. We changed the buy and sell rules to favour the Vendors, which then ticked off the members. We lost major Vendors as paying sponsors to free media sites like Facebook. We've got members who don't even know how to upload pictures because they have no idea how to navigate BB sites, are use to instant picture uploads to social media sites, and can't be bothered to learn. We've got hundreds of thousands of pictures lost to Photobucket because of their new 'pay to use' bullshit. We were promised a New Canreef platform that was a hybrid of BB, Facebook and other social media sites, that would be easier to contribute to, and instantly share pics, locations, tags etc, only to have its development completely aborted 2 years ago. We had Alberta's oil field employment nose dive, and we lost a ton of contributing members to that. Most newer members think growing and selling coral is going to make them a ton of money, and are in the hobby for profit (haha fools), they are more than welcome to use here, FB Coral Hoarders and other FB pages to sell stuff.

The buy and sell guidelines were discussed at length when they were written, and we are fine with the location being either in the title, in the thread, or the sellers profile.
I hate photo bucket. I just got another warning from them. Someone should upgrade our beloved Canreef to reef2reef format. #WhereisTitus #upgradetime

Vancouver coral enthusiasts put their pants on one leg at a time just like everybody else. Wheelman has great corals and is great for the hobby. Keep up the good work. The hobby has evolved beyond just brick and mortar shops and visiting local enthusiasts has been a boon for the hobby.

Since this isnt a real FS thread, figured this is as good of a place as any to ask my question. I have Seneye reef that I am planning on offering for rent to local reefers here. (good for PAR measurements) What would be rules around that? I still have to figure out how to go about deposit, so that it doesnt grow a pair of legs and walk away forever, but would be good to at least start looking into this.

Since I am about to start setting up aquarium, I was thinking of even offering it for some frags when time comes, but again, want to see what are the rules and some possible issues I should be aware of.

Would there even be any interest in something like this at all?

Thanks folks

Wheelman has been a valued and respected member of our local reefing community for years. We are lucky to be able to visit his place and enjoy his beautiful setups. My daughters still consider his frags some of the most beautiful and colourful we seen around here. His posted pics improve my "quality of life" 😉🥰🥰 and I look forward to seeing what he has, even if he doesn't include "North Van" in his thread title😋

Btw, this complaint falls under the "First World Problems" category. Location of seller in title, yes nice to have, but am I going to get all riled up over this? Nope. Also trying to pick a fight with our friend Jesse cause you're not getting any love for your pet peeve, tsk tsk. No frags for you Flamer.
