    Hello all! This is the first of many updates to come in the following weeks :)

    There is a new Pond Showcase section, which allows you to create a blog-like thread for your own pond. This isn't the place for questions, but an area to showcase your own creation. Only you will be able to post in your thread, so you can use it to post photos and updates of your pond and fish. It's not meant as a substitute for any existing forum, but a way that you can keep track of your pond in one place. I hope this comes in handy. It's empty so far, so I look forward to reading the new threads ;).

    I've also renamed the description for the Garden Pond Articles forum. This is a place for members to share their knowledge and write articles on garden pond/koi subjects. If there are any exceptional articles, they can be make stickys or promoted to a new menu (if the section becomes popular, which I hope it does!).

    There's more to come in the coming days, so stay tuned :D

    One thing that was nice on a different forum, computer, the stickys were locked. Kept the sticky information to just that.

    Nice, the showcase spot will be used.

    Wow, This was a fast addition! This was dicsussed and thought that it would be nice to do for those that are starting a pond build or even a DYI build so it can be viewed by all but controlled by the member that started the thread to eleminate all the unneeded chit chat and and keep a nice clean look to the thread for a long period of time. We welcome each member to start a thread here and add to it. Feel free to go back and start when you first started you build and add to it to the present day and then add more as the future unfolds. Just one of a few new additions to the site that have been in discussion or are just being brought out to improve on this already great site. Hope everyone enjoys! Look forward to seeing plenty of pics here!

    It makes it easier to follow a build that way, also it will help a new person see what is involved in the different types of builds.

    You can always do that! we would all like to see a new pond build, Or you can just go through your old pics and make a album that shows early stages of your pond to present. I think I will go that route for now.....LOL:bowdown:
