Hello Everyone,

Is anyone reading this interested in acquiring their own youtube video downloading website?

It is super easy to look after, basically just set and forget and anyone buying it will be provided 12 months free website hosting, so its basically walkin/walkout.

This is an ideal situation for anyone wishing to become a webmaster or also for someone to add an interesting little tool to their present portfolio.

Anyone who may be interested can reply here or send me a PM.

Hi Jess,

Your welcome and it was very nice to meet you. 

Hoping you enjoy your new Trumpet Snails, they can be a great addition to your tank but don't overfeed them.  :D

Hi Zak,

You like to do a local pickup ?

Cheers ... SnappaGuy.

Quote from: tva351 on February 17, 2019, 09:22:05 amI will try to keep this polite. This is a forum for shrimp keepers and not for people who want to feed them to their gourami. If you were interested in keeping and breeding dwarf shrimp, that's great welcome. But unfortunately you have pretty much made your intentions clear. Is this the sort of get the numbers up in the forum you wanted,snappaguy?

tva351, a resounding NO is my answer to your question and I will be looking closely at where this goes.

Hello dmdr,

Like tva351 suggested, if your intentions are honorable in joining and posting about shrimp related topics (as per the requirements) then your very welcome, however if you've come to stir the pot, and exploit my good intentions in offering an incentive to new users then that's another matter.

We are shrimp hobbyists who enjoy keeping shrimp and the fact is I personally would not provide my animals to anyone who said to me "I'm going to feed them to my fish", some might, but not myself!

By your own definition, you certainly fit in the cynical category and while I accept the fact that it "takes all kinds to make the world go round" I less accept the fact that the type of posts I envisage coming from your good self, are going to be the type of posts that will fit well with the general theme around here but I could be wrong.

That being said, I will wait with anticipation for your next post, however please bear in mind if your solely here to make 30 posts, acquire the FREE STUFF and then do a runner, it may be just simpler not to.

I don't have many fish Jess but those I do include a male betta named Aurora, he's a tough little fella who hates snails.   :D
Hello Zak and welcome to the forum.

Err, crikey ... I thought we had a few things going on at my place but it appears to be pretty full on at your residence.   :o

12 tanks and 20 to go, now that's gonna be one hell of a lot of water, they'll have to turn the desalination plant up to 'high' for you.   ;D

A big snake huh, look forward to seeing a pic of that.

And I look forward to seeing you about and to reading your posts.

Cheers ... SnappaGuy.
Equipment / Swap Drone For RCS
February 16, 2019, 03:23:02 am
Hi Guys,

I have a little drone, surplus to my requirements that I'd be willing to swap for $40 worth of Red Cherry Shrimp.

Cost $129 new, comes with the original box, has a few spares, works fine and not to difficult to fly.  :o

Let me know if anyone's interested?

Hello Jess,

Welcome to Shrimp-Attack, it sure sounds like you love your animals.   :)

I look forward to seeing you about and reading more of your animal related adventures, particularly shrimp.

There are some very experienced shrimp keepers here who will be happy to help with your first shrimp tank.

Regards ... SnappaGuy.
Please Read / Forum Software Upgrade
February 15, 2019, 05:05:29 am
Howdy One and All,

We have just upgraded to the latest stable release of SMF's forum software, which is why you'll note things look a bit different.

This version has many bug fixes and security enhancements, and supposedly provides a better user experience, have a poke about and report back as I'm interested to hear your thoughts.

I will be tweaking things a bit going forward, so don't be surprised to see some additional changes as things develop.

Regards ... SnappaGuy.
Anything Else / Re: Crickets chirping and tumble weeds

Hey Again,

Been thinking about things and came up with a couple of other ways members could help with this situation.

Firstly, there was the idea that pet shops could donate goods, that in turn could be offered to new users as incentive to join the forum, great idea and I will explore that directly but what about this? This is a shrimp forum and its members presumably have shrimp, would any member care to donate a few of their shrimp occasionally, to offer as prizes to new members? They in turn will be recognized as 'Life Members' and will display a badge to that effect and have improved privileges about the place, any takers?

Secondly, if members navigate to 'Profile > Actions > Paid Subscriptions' they will observe a range of package's they may select, that results in funds being made available to Shrimp-Attack which I will assure you will be used to pay for advertising on one (or more) of the popular social media platforms in order to boost numbers. Again, these members will have a new badge, improved privileges and in the case of a 'Life Member' a subscription that does not expire for 125 years or indeed LIFE.  :)

Looking forward to comments on this and umm, seeing your shrimp and gold.   :o

Cheers ... SnappaGuy.

Hi Guys,

Firstly, I'm loving the subject 'Crickets chirping and tumble weeds', it bought a smile to my face for sure.  ;D

Traffic, user interaction, sales and generally getting people to participate has long been a webmasters bane, given you
can lead a sheep to water but you can't make the woolly jumbuck drink.   :)

I'm not sure if anyone has noticed but the number of guest visitors is steadily rising, with a lot of people browsing but not actually joining and then actively participating. I am a little sympathetic as I am often guilty of the same thing, where I can read a bit of stuff without going to the trouble of creating ANOTHER pesky account. 

With regard what we are doing, I can state that I am actively promoting on sites like Gumtree, FB and Petlink, offer free trumpet snails to members joining the forum and ask all and sundry I come in contact with (who has an interest) to come along and join up. I pressed someone I know to do just that today and his reply was "I don't have much time, I'm a member of 6 other forums and never logon anyway" so it can be a bit of a challenge. In addition to that I am doing some serious SEO in an effort to rank the site on the first page of the results for different keywords, its ranking for different things on pages 5 and 6 but needs to be on page 1 for best results. SEO is laborious and takes time to see results but is essential to any websites well being.

I'm always looking and always receptive to good ideas regarding how to get the word out, so feel free to offer workable solutions and rest assured I will explore there full potential.

The site is starting from the ground up and I expect it may take a little while to gain serious traction and everything you guys can do as members to promote it will be both beneficial and appreciated, there is a mod to enable FB sharing I installed but it has a couple of bugs that I'm working through. When it's fixed, that may be a way to get the word out on FB and generate some additional interest.

In the meantime sabertooth, what about I say to you "for the next five new and active members that you personally recruit, I will pay you $10 each" ... how does that sound, care to put on your thinking cap, take up the offer and do the hard yards?  :)

Shrimp-Attack ran successfully from 2009 until 2016, I believe it has the potential to emulate that success in 2019, with the support of its members and that's why I resurrected it, I could be wrong but time will tell I guess.

Looking forward to great things, happy shrimping ... SnappaGuy.
