Great post True Indigo!
I agree this is a really good online community. The good that has come out of Bettafish, and TFK (and one other forum I won't say the name of here because I don't want the Mods to get mad at me.) only made me even more passionate about bettas, and other aquarium fish.
These 3 forums are run very professionally, without being stuffy and "clicky" like some forums out there. Everyone is really nice and it's great that all of us, young and old, get along so nicely. No matter the age group people belong to everyone is welcomed in equally. That's partially because of the Mods, and partially because of the community as a whole.
I have to agree too. The good experiences far outweigh the bad! And to add to everything already said I have to give an extra special thank you for everyone who puts up with me being a very "long winded" and slow typer. :)
