All participants of this board are ranked according to the following categories:

Arrow Special Ranks (invitation only)

Benefactors: These are the members who give regular financial support to help cover the costs of hosting the board, allowing it to remain public and free to all other visitors. In exchange they receive an e-mail account and space on the site to host their personal web pages, photos and avatars. If you're interested in becoming a Benefactor please contact me.

Advisors: This is the top-level rank on this board in terms of fishkeeping expertise. The group is composed of valued members who've shown outstanding knowledge and achievements in one or more aspects of the hobby, and are willing to pass that knowledge onto others with politeness and clarity. Although the focus of this rank is on advising, it also has moderation priviledges in the Freshwater Basics, Best of the Board, Gallery Submission and Article Preparation forums.

Moderators: These are regular members who were recruited to help me with the board maintenance. They can edit/move/delete topics and posts on all forums, create polls, etc. Some of the oldest moderators also have administration priviledges and can create/delete/modify user accounts, ban members, etc. Although the main focus of this rank is on the board's maintenance and directives, most of these members are also very experienced and accomplished fishkeepers.

Arrow Standard Ranks (automatic evolution)

Regulars: Participants who've posted 100 messages or more.

Members: Participants who've posted 30 messages or more.

New Members: Recently registered participants.

The three ranks above enjoy the same priviledges, I.e., no priviledges whatsoever are gained on this board simply by posting more messages. What we value here is the quality of the messages, not the quantity. Standard members can post in all forums except a few with restricted access. They can and should edit/delete their own topics when necessary, create their own profiles (see rules for Avatar, Sig, etc) and use the board's private messenging (PM) system.

Arrow Visitors

Non-registered participants can read all public forums, search the board for specific topics and browse the memberlist, but can post only in the Site Issues forum to ask for help with registering, etc.
Are you a Fish-HAVER or a Fish-KEEPER?
Success with a fish/tank is measured in YEARS, not months or weeks...
