Wonderful initiative Neil. It's the time when we should start making the kids aware of the different hobbies which relate to the nature. Fish-keeping is definitely one of them.
I'd love to hear more about your workshop. What are the things that you are going to talk about?
Show them a LOT of photos. Feel free to use photos from my website www.playsofrays.com
Wishing you all the best.

Rajiv ji, I would expect a little more from you. A number of times I have seen you write "Great", "Too good", "Nice work" etc. Just two words?
You being the owner of this forum should indulge in the conversations. Things that you write put a full stop in the conversation. You need to learn to keep the conversation going. In fact it is a major problem in this forum. A lot of users copy your method and write these two words of "ehsaan". Yes, that's how it sounds. It sounds like just because the thread starter took the pain and created a thread, you simply are returning the favor and doing an "ehsaan" on him by writing these two words.
Doesn't matter if it's a photo thread or a general informative thread, you give the same response everywhere.

It's not just the number of thread but the quality of the content which keeps a forum going. Have a look at the Hydra forum. In very less time, they have gathered so much great content. It's that content that makes the users signup there.
All the users that have signed up here did that either because they are friends with and respect you or they live in and around delhi or they knew a person here and wanted to talk to him.
You will have to take the initiative and start thinking bigger for the future of the forum otherwise I don't see a great future ahead.
I also know a bunch of good hobbyists who just never joined the forum because of your invitation emails. Again, don't force people to join; have the content that should allure the hobbyists to join.
People buy what shines.

I am extremely sorry for ranting in your thread, Neil. But I thought it was important.
Don't only practice your art, but force your way into it's secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the divine.

I support your statement Sumer, from the day 1 itself in this forum I am breaking my voice that quantity doesn't matter quality matter but still no heed paid to it. And also sometime I feel so irritated that people are busy to explore only one side of the hobby, you post something different and your post/thread goes unanswered!!!

Now back to the Topic -

Lovely initiative there Neil, and do let us know what all are you going to explain in the workshop?
I will spread the word about your workshop, wish that it turns out to be a great success :)

Yes Sai, that was a typo and corrected it :)

Well advertisement is good if you want to sell and make profit for some thing :) But if that is not in motive then no point in doing that :)
Well take it into PM-level :)

Very true Sumer. Thank you for using the exact wording to express. I like to be pointed out if I am not doing my task.

Neilji I am waiting for your PM on FB.

Coming to the point, I have seen your nice documentation of whatever you have started for the hobby, expecting more such work from you.
