It seems that there has been less and less posting on tonmo and more and more everyday on RC whats up with that. Let's give tonmo the glory again and not RC. Let's go tonmo........

Um... I don't know what you're talking about!

I think it's just because it's summer time... you know, vacations and all. Posting might have slowed down a little but it's not nearly as dead as RC's ceph forum.

This is the doldrum season for octopus keeping...most of them are beginning to die off, and a lot of the researchers are on vacation. Don't worry, it will pick back up in a month or so.

As long as the ceph forum on RC isn't getting action, I am happy.
In my talks I have been telling people that TONMO is the place for octo discussion, and how refreshing it is to really have one place to go for the info instead of the many many reefing forums. IMO, it really would be a shame for the core info and support available on TONMO to get watered down (not to mention having to refute outright bad info again and again) by having to search multiple sites.

A lot of the sites get sleepy this time of year, so I don't think its anything to worry about. :smile:

When Tonmo people post on RC, they usually refer people to Tonmo, which has had a good effect. People often wander into the Ceph forum there because they're on some of the other RC forums.

TONMO.com and RC have respectfully co-existed for many years, and it has worked well. As Nancy is alluding to, they serve different but complementary purposes. And as Rich (Thales) states, there is no better place to get concentrated ceph info than on TONMO.com.

yeah, this is always a quiet time for cephalopods and people. Nothing to worry about.

RC has its place and has always been a good starting point for people interested in cephs but this is where most of them end up staying ;)

If someone can do it better they are welcome to try! I would put my money here, though.

I will be spending some time over the weekends this summer improving navigation and layout, since some of our gold is hard to find. We have a lot of content so it's not easy -- but there are definitely ways to make this better -- I'm on it, just need a little time.
