Denny, you are absolutely correct. I have been personaly astounded by the shear volume of people viewing the various forums whever I come on. Perhaps all most viewers need is good advice or a nudge in the right direction.

I took an objective look at the entry page once you log onto the site and notice an invitation to subscribe to the newsletter. It seems a vast number of people seem to think this is compulsory which if read properly it clearly is not. On my first visit I subscribed and enjoy the updates and tips.

In so far as the forums page is concerned there is a perception that there is significant restriction on access if you do not register as a member. Most first time visitors would perceive this as making the detailed forums accesibile on condition you have registered. This is not the true position.

Perhaps an ammendment of the welcome to the forums page could be considered?

1.1 Ball pythons (Pablo + Che')
0.1 Dumeril's boa (Alegra)
1.0 African Grey Parrot (Waxy)
1.3 Dogs (Marley, Jemma, Chelsea and Sasha)
