Advertisement HI guys, I'v been thinking about this for a while now. A big part of the problem with the scorpion hobby in the US is no organization. A few years ago we had some amazing species here in the US. Just look at some of those old posts. We lost those species because no one bothered to breed and distribute those scorpions to any other breeders. I'd like to see a little more organization when it comes to breeding and exchanging rare species. Here's what I'm thinking about. If I get an arachnosupporter plus subscription I'd be able to start three groups. These groups would be kind of like a subforum. What I'd like to see is a "classified" section that would be for trade only. Basically it would be a way for breeders to exchange rare species and get them to people that would breed the animals. It could be a restricted member forum, that way only breeders would be incuded. I'm not sure about restricting the members, but I'd not want to see a bunch of people putting up adds that aren'r scorpion related. Or people getting in just to grab the rare stuff just to have it. I really would want it to be a place where fairly serious breeders can get together and exchange rare species with the idea to get the species established. Another idea would be for a care sheet/species description forum. This would be restricted, but visible to everyone if possible, basicaly so that I could keep it organized. I'd like yo get other breeders to be involved in writing caresheets posting pictures ect. I'd be nice to have a place to go if someone asks about what species they should get next. They could look up a good discription of how the animal is cared for, where it comes from, how easy to breed ect, plus a bunch of pictures. It could also be a great place for people to get a look at species we don't have in the US yet or at our lesser known native species. Lastly I'd consider a kind of planning room??? I think it would be cool to have a place where we as breeder could plan out how to approach the prospect of getting new species. If we know of a limited import coming in it might be nice to know what everyone is getting so we could plan around a way to the most for our money, knid of like saying, "I'll get species a,b, and c you guys get species x,y, and z so we can trade when we've bred them." Or maybe we can figure a way to talk a dealer into doing an import. Let me know what you guys think. John PS I don't want this to duplicate what we have in the scorpion forum.
