Welcome and please make yourself at home. Please bear with me as I work the kinks out of this system as this is my first time doing anything of this sort. Feel free to make suggestions or give advice on anything I can do better!

Also, PLEASE READ THE RULES HERE ******

PostSubject: looks good   Fri Aug 19, 2011 1:40 pm

This seems like a long time coming here in our area. We have the larger national sites but it's a good thing to have a local site where people that are int he same hobby can intermingle. Glad you set this up, Hampton Roads Area and even up to Richmond is a huge reptile community and it's about time we had something like this. Great idea Nick.

Thanks James!!!

I'm just running the free version on here now and hopefully if things pick up, I can start giving them money so the site can move a little faster. Still have a few bugs to work out, but it's a work in progress Smile

nothing wrong with a work in progress i remember when VR and FAUNA and even kingsnake were the same way. I think its a good idea who time is long past. We just need to get the word out and i think you will see a lot of people on here. VA is a mega ground for herp folks maybe not as much as Florida but we are damn close.

Nick,

Everything looks good so far. IMHO I agree we've needed a local forum for awhile. That and the fact that with a forum that's local you actually get to meet more people in your area that share the same intrest, I've met a few people in the area but know there's more that I haven't meet. When you get to know people in your area it does to things (IMO) it not only brings you together but make's thing's better as we know each other better makes a tighter knit community. ( I hope this is even semi understandable to people )

Anyway Nick, Congrat's and I look foward to using the site ALOT!!!

( btw we gotta get together before summer's out and hit the beach's wanted to this weekend But I have alot going on this weekend Im sure you know what I have going on so yea... Thanks Nick )

Thanks everyone. I really hope it grows. I tried to get one site to create a local forum and they said the traffic wouldn't flow everywhere, but I think a few places would still be able to keep it moving; with us being one Twisted Evil

Already, the site definitely looks like it's going to be worth the effort. But feel free to spread the word!!

Thanks

Saw the ad posting for this on craigslist this morning and thought it was a great idea! I'm a huge reptile enthusiast and am always looking for others with the same interest so this seems like the perfect way to connect with other people locally. So far I've had to drive 30 minutes away from my house to an exotic pet store to talk to people who really know and understand herps. By the way, if anyone knows of a good herp vet anywhere near Richmond (I am a college student so the budget is also tight, but I don't want to sacrifice the health and well-being of my exotics either) I'd really appreciate it! Looking forward to reading about your ideas and experiences everyone!

Thanks Nick But in all honesty I dont know of a Reptile Vet in the area I do know of one in Fredricksburg, Va I'll have to look up the info again. Give me a few have to head out again in a few But when I return I'll check the area and with some fellow herper's in the area and see what I can come up with for vet's in the Richmond Area


Nick Do you think not right now but when the site's up and running that we could put a Vet section in with a list of Vet's that deal with Reptile's?? I'll even contact and locate them and foward you the info on them? Just an Idea....

Just let me know and I can start on it asap Very Happy

Of course!! I have a "homepage" on my to-do-list and I hope to create a directory for Virginian merchants. The best option for now would be to list them in the general husbandry forum and I'll sticky it.

PostSubject: Richmond area herp vets   Wed Aug 24, 2011 3:01 pm

Thanks, guys, I do know of the vet in Fredericksburg but that's about an hour away from me and between work and school I don't want to travel that far if I don't have to. I know there's another office on Lakeside that treats exotics but I don't know about their experience level with reptiles. I suppose my best bet is just to call and ask but if you know anything else about them off-hand, it would be welcome information. Thanks again!

Hi my name is Zach I joined a few months back but haven't given the site a look through till now, I am happy that this is a local thang, and hope to connect with people who have similar interest, got into herps after receiving some rescue p. grandis from a pet shop goin out of business in nova, at first was only thinking about keeping them till I found a home for them but then I really started to appreciate them after taking care of them for a few days I started out with the two a male and a female, and now im up to five from them getting it on. anyways thanks for the forum i'll post some pics later and have a merry Christmas.

Could you give me an example of where this is happening? Is it only happening in certain forums?
