What is the Community Forum?

Hey Everyone,
My name is Nick and I have helped get the ball rolling on this new forum with lots of help from the moderators. I was inspired to start this up within MARS because of other MARS members' generosity, and I was heavily influenced by the last reef club I was a part of in DC http://wamas.org/home.php.

I hope this new community forum will serve two main functions:

1) To improve and enrich the connections between MARS members, strengthening our small community of people who care about reefs.

2) To take advantage of the MARS organization to improve our communities at large through improved education, volunteering, conservation efforts, and...who knows what else.

I have kicked this forum off with a few threads focusing on a pay-it-forward coral propagation program, a thread aimed to get more reef tanks in school classrooms, and a general volunteering thread for any and all volunteering related news. The equipment sharing thread has also been moved to this forum. I really hope this is a small start to what will become a great tool for enhancing our small MARS community, and all communities in the Madison area.

Life is a comedy for those who think... and a tragedy for those who feel.

Wow. What a great concept. It is certainly inspiring. I hope to contribute to this concept in someway in the future.

Thanks for taking the time to set this up, and get te ball rolling.
