5 users requesting a subforum for a seasonal hobby.

Personally I don't care either way but would suggest a cautious approach given the precedent that would be set.

What if a few people ask for an Aquaponics sub, or and handful ask for for species based Shrimp subs - you end up with a cluttered and fractured forum full of subs that very few actually use.

Maybe the members here or VS folks have better insight, but I've seen a few forums lately scale back the number of subs and it feels like a better browsing experience after it's 'cleaned up'.

You logic doesn't follow. There is a place for shrimp posts. I know where to look for them. This whole thread started because I had a pond question and quite frankly didn't know where to post the question.

Freshwater?

We have a place for people with "anything else" like reptiles to post, and this is a much more fish related activity than snakes. I debated if my question should go into "anything else" but really didn't know where to even start to look for other pond related questions.

What would be served by having a pond subsection is some clarity about where to post a question, rather than having pond questions scattered all over the place.

It may or may not get used often, so if the mods feel that pond questions should go in a specific section that already exists, then just add a line that says "post your pond questions here"

Without direction, there is no order. And isn't that what subsections are for???

5 users today, yes. This just started last week. How many posts are there in the reptile section on a monthly basis.
Seasonal? Hardly. My pond runs all year round, and I have to maintain it all year round just like my tanks.
A pond sub section can also include Koi and goldfish.

I merely suggested a cautious approach based on the precedent it would set to create subs based on a handful of peoples needs. No need to get argumentative!

Your suggestion of creating a sub or giving broader definition to an existing sub is a good one.

If the masses want change, great, let there be change. Maybe the users, or VS can define how many people constitute 'the masses'.

I thought it was open discussion........if my post came across as being argumentative, then I apologize.

I would use a pond section. Maybe not often, if I'm the only one posting to it.

I have a pond myself and would find a subform useful for gathering information / putting fourth my ideas. I think it would be a good idea to have a section for pond/koi/turtle/plants and related topics.

Just thought I'd chime in. I'm looking at setting up a pond for my backyard soon and it would be nice to get some inspiration, ideas and advice from other members! +1 to the pond section!
