Dear Venomland Members and Friends, Venomland is a little more than 6 years old now and by far the biggest Hot Snake community on the Planet! We want to thank all of you who made Venomland the leading Board. We are also very thankful to our Moderators and Admins for years of hard work. Now, it is time to move on. I have been thinking how to proceed and what to do with our beloved board as we reach a size, that we need to make drastic changes to secure the future of our community. As of now, Venomland is hosted by a free (well mostly free) hosting service. That was good for the first years but now we need to find a new way to run our forum. I have spend hundreds of Dollars over the years to keep Venomland up and running, and i have done so with pleasure. Now, we need your help! We need to come up with several thousand dollars for our Venomland 2.0 project, which i frankly cant pay for any longer by myself. So Venomland is asking his Friends and Members for the first time for their financial Support. Please help to keep Venomland alive, and let us move on to a new, better Portal in the Future! Every Dollar is helping us a great deal. I know, its hard times for everyone, but please spare a few Dollar for our community. If you have only 10 Dollars to spare, we are grateful, if it is more, it would be awesome. We are planning to develop a very new Venomland, with real community functions, a forum like you are already loving it and a real (online) Hot Snake Magazin. Also, there will be download areas for scientific papers, Wallpapers and more. Again folks, we can only do that if you all help. Please send me a Private Message if you want to keep Venomland alive, i will provide you with the details on how to donate Money. For now, we can accept money from creditcards via skrill (please google it, its a free service - account-details will be forwarded to you) and paypal. All the best, and for a (hopefully) nice future of our Board. Mario

PostSubject: Question to the forum   Thu 2 Jun - 17:21

Due to the description of the forum one should not see postings of people from ones foo list (ignore list).
This worked until roughly a week ago but now I can see all his postings again.
The foo list is the last protection against "specialists for everything" and forum trolls who reply on each and every thread - and I use it very, very selectively.
Is there a possibility to put this to function again?
Kind regards,
Guenter

This is a great forum which is at risk of being clogged with inane chatter. Good luck in addressing it...

Unfortunately, you are right, Simon.
Thanks for your good wishes - it's not easy to deal with.
@Guenter
They have this problem on other forums too, and they're working on it (for more than one year now LOL).
Better than using a foe's list is having no members deserving to be put on.

Let's all work on that!

Best regards
Peter

Sometimes it's not in our hands ...
I don't want to deal with such people, who believe to always know anything better, always change topics in a wild way (never stuck to a topic of a thread), offend others whom they not even know and need to give their f***ing 2 cents to each and every topic.
God bless their surrounding and neighbourhood who must stand them every day. I don't need to Wink

I agree that Venomland is good forum. In my view, any initiative to preserve the high standard that the site originally set for itself is worth considering. Requiring that members use their real names is a step in the right direction. I've also wondered from time to time whether or not members should be required to pay a small 'membership fee' in order to post, while at the same time, allowing the forums to remain free and open for all other internet users. Also, a reference from another established Venomland member in order to join this site might be a thought worth considering. This might help curtail the endless banal platitudes and inflammatory remarks we've all come to know and expect from certain users. I don't have any easy answers to this question, but perhaps other the members and administration might...? Sincerely, Jon Davidson .

Venomland is an excellent forum and that’s largely thanks to the high standard of posting and friendliness of most of the folks on the forum. I have seen this problem with many other forums and eventually most of the knowledgeable members move on and stop posting. It would be very sad to see this happen here. Perhaps restricting members posting permission may be an answer if they continue to post rude or unconstructive posts?

PostSubject: Re: Question to the forum   Fri 3 Jun - 1:35

i am grateful for the patience of the many colleagues- herpetologist and herpetoculturist, zoologists, and botanist who have anwsered the thousand questions that my limited formation as an first reptile , second botanist, and third some ornithology, enthusiast business owner of Zoobotanicals Corporation of thirty years has imposed.

An oversized thank you go's out to the victimized members of Venomland for their grace and decorum at such times when we reach a fork in the road.

i can only hope to be excused for what ever inaccuracies or blunders might have emerged from my intellectual metabolism.

Thanks, goes out to Peter Zurcher and Rainer Fesser, who took good care of fine- tuning for public benefit, my punctation and syntax of my native language and humor .

looking forward ,


Albert J. Montejo / Zoobotanicals Corporation.
