Maybe we could have a list some private dealers of rare piranhas based in the uk? All i ever seen in my LFS are Reds and the occasional Rhom at a disgustingly high price :rockon:

thats something similar to what Im trying to do with the 'UK Stores' thread, hopefully in there we will have a decent amount of places listed that other members have purchased not only P's from but also tanks, filters and other equipment.

If we get enough suggestions I'll try and make something similar to the member map but just for the UK with the various shops marked out so its easier for members to see whats near them.

buy and sell is European...plus I cant moderate it there!

Plus considering this is very UK specific (infact mainly why this forum was created), not selling stuff and just recommending places it should probably be in here.

I have already asked Xenon if we can dip in the forum funds to supply all UK members with this, served to you by your very own American 'Queens English' speaking butler.

get a buy and sell UK only forum here
instead of the lounge : the pub
have a look in the Dutch forums and you'll get the idea from what i mean.
I'm aware you can discuss the different subjects in the big forum also, but creating a mini community in a community has so much more profits because you are all from the same country :puke:
When i got the Dutch forums it started the same like this and see what happened in 2 years. 40 - 50 daily active users which are sharing their expierences and knowledge.

we spoke about this with Mike when it was first being introduced and he wanted to keep it mainly just for UK Piranha-specific questions, rather than a whole community here. As we speak the same language we may aswell use the US forums is what he felt, than to create a kinda divide.

and the fact you'd need to post twice, afterall we do each speak a form of english, and the uk one would get less hits than the us one, i'd probably never use it.

I was reading and somebody making a lounge but calling it "The Pub". I think this would be a great idea since we could speak about football and other things that only relate to our country. We wouldn't really be cutting out everybody and making our own little community but we would be making it a better place for people to speak on, and which should provide the UK forum with more posts and such.

I reckon you should just give it a try and see what happens.... :thumbup:

the reason other countries have this is cause its in another language. All posts about football or whatever can be posted in the main lounge as it is in english, plus gives the yanks a chance to learn about a proper sport :thumbup:

If the UK section was more active then this might be a possibility, but until then I expect it to stay how it is!
