What happened to this place!? It's a ghost town...
Serious question, what happened? Did the community finally implode? did the thousands of "breeders" jumping on the ball python band wagon kill the morale of the compassionate few?
It seems I Sold off and started a new project at a good time, and I also decided to get a few nice snakes as a display piece for my house at the PERFECT time(someone lead me to all the Albino carpets and albino olives please and thank you ), I can not believe how rock bottom the prices are on some beautiful animals... from a consumer standpoint I should thank the droves of people who came for the gold rush I guess..
But seriously, Please let me know what happened to this amazing community, there used to be days you couldn't even keep up with the new posts, pictures etc! Now I go to the carpet python forum and there hasn't even been a post in 30 days??
is anyone out there!?!RyanR

If your not into FB on a personal level other than reptiles (like me) then set up a facebook profile and start finding others you know into reptiles. Once you get a few FB will help you find others of similar interest. The key is don't friend family and friends. This way your facebook will only be reptile people and reptile stuff and reptile business pages you like. You can mostly avoid the chaff of what people ate for dinner or what underwear they soiled that day. If you end up with contacts you don't like you can easily block or unfriend them. Also there are reptile related groups on FB you can join. That's where all the classified stuff has gone. and most important like this page below.

I miss the old days on here; posts were much more substantive, was much easier to search for relevant information, and communities weren't as fragmented.
On the plus side, I'm guessing in aggregate there are far many more people between all the different Canadian reptile facebook groups than there ever were on here, and it seems easier than ever to find people working with less common species, or to get in on imports so there are some positives as well.
If only we could have both; more substantive discussions on here, and quicker, near real-time interactions on social networking. Not holding my breath though; the best that we can probably hope for is that facebook improves their search functionality.

I clean up the spam on the site, and I am guilty of not doing it often enough.
This is still my favourite forum, facebook is great for my particular species, but I like to see what others are doing in the community, so unless I join multiple facebook groups, it is impossible to see what else is going on.
I suppose that is why have always enjoyed this forum.
Anyway, I am still around around and I think others are lurking also.Phil (CBG)
