    Hi all - I'm locking this thread, in favor of the Supporters' thread for any feedback on the revamping of the TONMO forum list. But FYI, the forums have been (or are in the process of being) reordered as follows -

    In order of appearance on the Forums tab:

    Our Community (category):
    - Introduce Yourself
    - Octopus' Den (this is our general ceph discussion forum, includes things like smileys, memes and tattoos, general site info... Sub forums: Blogs, Octopodcast, Social Media, Photo of the Month)
    - TONMOCON
    - Marketplace (only Supporters may start threads here )
    - Supporters Forum

    Cephalopods Main Forums (category):
    - Ceph News Feeds
    - Ceph Care Ethics
    - Ceph Fact Check
    - Squid (general discussions: could be research, general physiology)
    - Octopus (general discussions: could be research, general physiology)
    - Cuttlefish (general discussions: could be research, general physiology)
    - Nautilus (general discussions: could be research, general physiology)
    - Diving & Ceph Encounters
    - Behavior & Intelligence
    - Marine Conservation
    - Education & Employment
    - Videos
    - Arts & Crafts
    - Culture

    Cephalopod Care (category):
    - [all the same forums as today; no changes to this category]

    Fossils (category):
    - [all the same forums as today; no changes to this category]

    Cephalopod Species (by Family) (category):
    - [all those sub-forums!]

    In some respects, these changes better situate the site in the older tradition of TONMO. Some areas have been consolidated, and others expanded. I expect it will take a bit of getting used to, but I think it better lays out our community's offerings for new visitors. Thanks!
