just a suggestion...maybe..each super mod "hold/handle" certain "topic"? I mean for example..Olympia handle anything related to "care", DramaQueen "breeding and showing" ( just example, in reality probably "wide" topic can be handle by 2 super mods or more, and this doesn't mean that any question in that topic must be answered by the supermods in charge, but rather.."supervised" the answer, to avoid false info?

I agree with this, I have seen good and bad info from all levels of members, people will tend to trust a "senior" members advise even though it could be wrong or misleading. even with that being said there is usually more than one way to solve a problem so even if people are not agreeing does not mean anyone is wrong or right could go either way.

Why did OFL leave? She was the only person who actually helped me when one of my fish was sick!

I don't think there should be any listing of member status, not "egg, fry, etc" either, because it IS based on post count, and it's already been said that post count doesn't equal knowledgeable. (which is VERY true). I guess we'll all just have to figure out who we should take advice from, and who to tune out.

I ask because newbies like myself might not know who to trust. There is a lot of false information out there, and it would help to have a clear sign of who you could ask directly, in the event you need a quick answer or your post goes unanswered and whatnot.
+1 to that. After being on here for almost a year as a member, and snooping around as an interested enthusiast for almost about 6 months before becoming a member, I have picked out a few people who's advice I would always follow. There are forums, I have seen, where members can identify people who are helpful and single them out as knowledgeable by clicking links that identify them as helpful. That of course, could be misused, but at the same time would be nice to have a "40 people view this member as helpful in betta fish care, 30 people view this member as helpful in betta fish emergencies as diseases."
ETA: I don't think a method like this would cause as much problems, because if someone begins to act "superior" others will stop supporting them as helpful. If you put it on the members to help others determine who to trust, but with guidance from the moderators who obviously are gatekeepers for everything, people would have to be accountable to everyone, and to the information they share with others.

I don't like the idea of "just figuring out who to trust" if it comes at the expense of my fish's lives...

I mean, I know y'all are going for no one having hurt feelings here, but don't forget we're all here for the welfare and love of our fish. If someone was posting bad or false information, it would be awful for a newer person to have their fish die because they followed bad advice, you know?

I agree with the "this many people have found this user helpful". Maybe if there was a way to recommend a user or their posts or advice or something along those lines.

It is hard to know who to trust,there are a few on here that you can trust without question.
When you are new,read,read,compare and read some more.
Soon you will begin to see a pattern develop.

Yea, I did, but there are other forums I've been on that have used a "graduating" system like that.

I definitely do, but then I'm also 23 and have a lot of experience with people in general. It's more or less the 10-15 or so crowd that I'm worried about.
