oops, i wish i would have seen this before the other one. i'll try again


this is my second (now third) post on this forum... i've just joined today to learn as much information as i can about parrotlets before i own one. some things that would be nice:

Parrotlet Housing and Accessories

Parrotlet Behavior and Anatomy

Parrotlet Diet and Nutrition

Parrotlet Classifieds
(for people that make and sell toys, treats, maybe even sell cages and miscellaneous parrotlet things... and also a place where breeders can advertise or anyone that is selling their birds can post. also a good place to post supplies wanted or even parrotlets wanted.)

I like things as they are really--
I just generally click the 'new posts' button to check in
and can generally find a folder to use when posting.
I don't really want classified ads or all that
Thanks!

A classified section wouldnt be active as much, but it would keep the selling and pricing topics away from interesting and fun topics. It would be a lot more organized... but it would be a waste of space for the admin. and more responsiblities for the moderators keeping watch of trolls.

But I would wait until this forum gets more popular to add one.

I beleive the thing to add is Parrotlet Housing and Accessories

Diet and everything else is covered in "Parrotlet Health" and behaviors and all that junk is in "Parrotlet Bonding and Training". You mostly get the memo about "Bonding" as being about behavior.



----If anything, I would section off each section into seperate folders.

EX. The section, "Parrotlet Bonding and training" can have different sections withi nthat section like "Parrotlet behavior", "parrotlet Bonding", and "Parrotlet Training".

Much like this (look at their sections): http://www.vivariumforum.com/community/

In one section: http://www.vivariumforum.com/community/paludarium/

But I beleive when the forum gets more popular... it would be a good idea to be more specific and organized. This is all up to Dave though.

Hope I helped!

EDIT: I just noticed.... when I was a much new member, I kept posting the same thing over and over again. lol Sorry if I annoyed anyone about this in the past or my "just recent" post.

How about an bereavment section? I pray I never have to use it but I know some on here that have lost their little ones and I think it would be a good idea to have a section in there memory.

Why would we need a different section for each kinda of bird, isn't this a parrotlet forum? Just wondering. I like things the way they are usually all you have to do is a search of the subject and there is plenty of info. A bereavement section would be great its not already info that is here already.

I agree with Granny! This is a Parrotlet forum -- no need for sections for different kinds of birds. If someone has other types of birds, of course it's find to post pictures and/or talk about them, but this is a forum dedicated to Parrotlets.

AvianAvenues has a ton of different sections, including one for different kinds of birds, P'lets included. The P'let section isn't very active though. I don't visit very often, guess I'm more drawn to our cozy little P'let forum!

Re: other birds section

I'm a member of a lovebirds forum and have really become close with the community there. The main bulk of the forum is dedicated to lovebirds, but there's one section under the heading "Other Parrots" and within that section a list of other individual parrot species to post in.

Its nice to be able to discuss the other species of parrot I keep with my friends there, and to read about theirs. Its a small part of the forum, relative to the many other areas specifically dedicated to lovebirds, but its a nice feature that works out well.

I don't see how it would interfere with the search function, as when the list came up you would see right away that a post is from the "quaker" or "eclectus" section... anyhow, as I have seen this sort of feature work, these posts are such a small volume compared to the lovebird posts that it isn't really a problem. It could also be set up so as to be excluded from the search function.

I hope to become better acquainted with this forum, as 2/5 of the feathered family in my flock are parrotlets- but as I get to know you all, it would be nice to have a place to discuss our other parrots that wouldn't encroach on the parrotlet topic.

As it is, people post about other types of birds on here all the time, if they had an appropriate out of the way area to do so, it would just make things more organized.

A reference section with links page would be excellent. This can be a good place to compile FAQ information, recipes, health & housing info... a good place for new parrotlet parronts and/or breeders to get quality and concise information fast.


I also 2nd or 3rd or 4th a "Rainbow Bridge" or "Memorial" section.
