Okay...whats with this forum??

Granted I'm new to this forum..and I have searched for a informative site to learn all I can about bettas, I find most threads are about arguments regarding size of tanks, etc..conflicting comments..
Is this site monitored by administration?
What is this member status "Bronze", "Silver" etc etc..
How do you get or earn this criteria and/or title??

Some threads I've read actually help, and just explain what is recommended.
It is appreciated. Others it seems always has same person comment.
Its disappointing..I just want to find a valid, informative, experienced source, I can rely on and feel comfortable with knowledgeable response..

Thanks and if I offended anyone that is not my desire.
I can see some members here truly have a passion for their fish, and I applaud them, for their dedication and joy in fishkeeping.

1. We don't all enjoy to argue lol, there are a specific few who enjoy instigating (i do sometimes.... :/ )
2. there are definitely some knowledgeable people here
3. Certain people just freak out over the slightest mistake

I'm sorry if you aren't getting what you need, maybe your just not going to the right pages, or threads, i hope you and your fish do well, and i hope you get around to enjoying this forum :)

It can be a nice place, but sometimes people just insist on arguing! lol

I think if you want expert non debated opinion, you should probably seek out experienced individuals and resort to Pming them. the forum is an open place for public opinion, silve and bronze members are simply indication of post count. the higher the post count, the higher the memeber status. Some experienced individuals include (but are definitely not limited to)

Sakura8
Olympia

...

you will add member to your own list as your time spent ob this forum increases.the majority here are still learning. and many do not state their opinions as fact, which makes it confusing.

Do start with the above list :)

This forum is a gold mine of info if you read the stickies and use the search function. I also don't mind the odd disagreement as they can be informative and occasionally funny.

+1 to everything said earlier.

My two cents: This is the best place I've found to learn about Bettas and fish keeping in general. The Moderators do a fantastic job of making sure people are civil and posts are "family appropriate". They will not hesitate to OPPA GANGNAM STYLE inappropriate comments into oblivion as well as ban users. If you see an issue, just PM them and they will swoop in and fix it. Plain and simple.

Again, if you have questions, either PM the experts or if you want to get opinions/guidance from more than one person, create a new thread in the appropriate location and you'll get your responses. The "forum mob" has never failed in answering all my questions or easing my concerns. While not everyone is an expert, those that do comment usually speak from experience and even if you cannot use everything they say, you can take something.

Enjoy your stay!

What I have found works for me is posting a question have multiple answers and going with the majority. Stated before it is an open forum and moderators cant be everywhere at once so they rely on us to point things out if we feel it is an issue. I do hope that you have a good stay :)
