    I'm just curious to know how most people find out about the boards.
    if you used google or something, what did you search for?

    here's my story:

    I had a lab with a guy a few years back, and we became good friends and I had told him about my T(one at the time) he got interested and got a few. one day he showed me the boards, we wasted many a day looking at pictures of T's and reading bite reports.

    about a year later I remembered it and joined up. :)

    Right after I bought my first emperor scorp, i was googlin' for info and after searching through many sites I found this one. So glad I did because I have learned a lot from the knowledgable ppl on here (many thanks for putting up with me ;P ) Anyway this site got me back into not only scorps, but now not only do I have 23 Ts but 102 Scorps and 2 pedes... thanks Scott!!! :wicked:

    I was looking for a place to buy some tarantulas. I did a search and this place popped up. I checked it out a few times and joined. It was one of the best places I decided to join. Saying that I want to say "Thank you to those that love me, hate me, or don't care one way or another for accepting this tarantla loving mad man.".

    A few days after this incarnation of AP/AB was put online back in July 2002 I was doing a search for some information on a particular scorpion so I could make a post on Scorpion Enthusiasts (now Scorpion Fans) and stumbled across this discussion between two guys on some scorpion or another. Those guys turned out to be Scott (Mr Deranged) and Dave (skinheaddave)...Scott didn't know squat and Dave was pretty new to the scorpion hobby...though now is one of the more knowledgeable people online...The rest is history...or is that infamy? :?

    I found AB back in 2002 while searching for invertebrate dealers online. The first online forum I ever joined.

  12. This alternative hovered, from what I remember, in the Cafe of Petbugs.com some time before it was closed. At first I thought the layout was suck because I wasn't used to it, mainly, but when the Cafe finally disappeared I felt the need to migrate here anyway, and My Eyes Saw.

    I was in John's store (e-spiderworld ), and heard AB mentioned, and then when I was searching for some t's online, I saw it and recognized the name, and well, I won't even say it.................................

    I was on another tarantula forum that usually only gets one post a day. Someone mentioned this was a place to go to get faster responses, so I checked it out and never went back to that other site... :8o

    I read on some slow-moving forum that AB sucks, so I got curious and decided to check it out.

    Sure am glad I did.

    one of the best things I've done since getting into the hobby.

    Google was the bright star that led me to AB, sometimes I wish it hadn't :( I had one T, ONE! and I was happy, then I came here saw all the great looking T's started learning lots, and now I have twenty T's, a few scorps and I'm looking at mantids......where will it end Lord, WHERE??? {D {D

    Seriously though, I love this place and you are a great bunch of people.

    Take care :)
