  2. We are very pleased to announce that we have added a new feature to the site called the BRKPedia! It's meant to be a member driven repository of information on all aspects of the hobby. Anything from an encyclopedia style article on a fish to a detailed article on a skimmer. Did I say member driven!? Why yes I did! Every member has the opportunity to be published in the BRKPedia! If you are published, then you will receive a permanent badge on your account! Stop by the new BRKPedia Forum for further details! Any questions? Ask away here!
  3. We now have permanent and official rules for hobbyists to utilize when buying and selling on our forums. The rules are permanently displayed here: http://www.bayoureefkeeping.com/pages/MarketRules They are also available at the top of both the Livestock & Equipment Market forums when viewing each of those forums.
  4. We are pleased to announce that our online merchandise store is officially open for business! You can access the store via the following link. You may also access it any time via the "Store" tab above or the Store banner ad that will occasionally appear in the ad rotation at the top of the page. Store Link Also, there is currently 20% off offered on all orders over $50. The coupon code will display on the store page.
  5. Bayou Reefkeeping currently has nearly 70 supporting members. That's an incredible number considering we only have 452 registered members on the site! In an effort to step things up to a new level as we prepare for bigger and better things, we are offering an incentive to our existing founding and supporting members. A Buy 3, Get 1 Free supporting membership drive. Here's how it works. As a founding or supporting member, you can get a free one year subscription added to your account if you are able to help three other members become supporting members. All you have to do is get three people to support BRK via a supporting member subscription and then post in this topic that they are doing so because you helped them understand how they can support the club. Thinking of becoming a supporting member and already have someone in mind to speak up for? Perhaps someone has been very helpful to you and you would like to return the favor. Well then you can do so by supporting BRK via a yearly subscription and posting in this topic that you did so because of them. Example of how this will work: Joe is currently a supporting member. His current subscription expires Nov 1, 2012. He lets several non-supporting members know about supporting Bayou Reefkeeping via a supporting membership subscription and tells them about this membership drive topic. Three of those people, Bob, Fred, and Jill all become supporting members and post in this topic that they became supporting members because Joe helped them understand how to support the club. Joe then gets his subscription extended to Nov 1, 2013 at no cost. Terms: Limit one free year per supporting member. A new supporting member can only vouch for one current supporting member. This membership drive will go until August 31st at midnight unless otherwise extended.
  6. Hi everyone, Over the past twenty-four hours, several people have asked us about our policy concerning the privacy of personal conversations (aka private messages) here on Bayou Reefkeeping. It is the policy of BRK that we will not, for any reason ever read any personal conversations on here. We also will not read parts of those conversations or utilize intrusive tools in order to scan your personal conversations here. Here at Bayou Reefkeeping, we have a genuine respect for the privacy of personal messages. Many of us use those to talk with friends here on a personal level; discussing family issues, everyday stresses, or just catching up on general matters. We have no business in making your personal business our concern. The content of your personal conversations here is owned by you and whomever you are communicating with. In short, Bayou Reefkeeping Staff will never view any or all parts of your personal conversations. It is highly unethical to be so intrusive upon members. Regards, Bayou Reefkeeping Staff
