    Hey All,

    We're trying to get an idea of how useful people find the Link Directory. If you have the time, please feel free to also leave comments regarding your choice in the poll.

    Thanks in advance,

    1. What does the survey among the mods say regarding them being baby sitters to an ongoing non-necessity?
    2. How do the links stack up against a well worded web search for an exacting and specific need/want? (A approximate ratio of about 100 million to 1 is my guess)
    3. K.I.S.S. For those who need fluff head for the social media sites.

    Just realized that I should have had a "no" choice in there as well so I added the option to change your vote, if it applies.

    Two things and a chicken:

    1. It'd be swell if maybe the link database had a category for scientific/study/meta-analysis/abstract/ect. links... maybeyes?

    2. Is the banner for the poll still supposed to be there asking me to take the poll after I took the poll?

    I wasn't aware such a thing existed.

    After taking a look at it, i don't think i'll use it in the future, as i'm more into science and nature content these days rather than hobbyist sites.

    You can click that off in the upper right corner.

    The only time I ever click the link directory is when I see a notice that a link may be broken.

    I didn't know it existed... But a short glance at 'tarantula links' only shows it to personal sites of other keepers?
    I was expecting the tarantula links had shortcuts to information on Arachnoboards, sort of like the stickies? But maybe I just have no idea what should go into such a thing. :D

    Now that I know what it is I am pretty excited for it. I am always looking for more US dealers. A simple Google search leaves alot of ones out I have discovered over the years

    For me, it could be really useful if it had list with links to tarantula shops. Not sure about other stuff to be honest.

    I cast my vote above.

    I don't usually use it because most of the questions I answer I do from my own knowledge. If I do mention an outside link I usually recite it from memory.

    If I remember I will try to direct people there in the future.
  16. Did not know it existed. Would probably be more useful as an actual 'library' rather than hotlinks to personal sites, etc. Maybe keep all the links limited to this domain, and just have them be a repository, like easier to access and more fluid 'stickies.' IDK.

    Wasn't aware of it till now.
    Pretty cool. I like it.

    I voted "There's a Link Directory?" since I genuinely did not know there was one (nor did I know exactly what it was) until this. However, now that I know about it, I will probably use it on occasion and will find it quite useful

    Looks really empty...
    Could definitely add some more sites on there, especially for supplies.
