    Default New bee forum

    Hello all
    I am not too sure if this is the right place to post this so any mods, feel free to move it.

    I have recently comprised a new forum, based in Australia but aimed worldwide, sort of like this one, based around bees. Please feel free to check it out, I'd love your input.

    Thank You

    the southern hemisphere?

    The main reason why I created this forum is because when I searched the net, I couldn't really find many, if any, bee forums mainly focusing on backyard beekeeping, that includes the beesource forum which I find to be aimed at commercal beekeepers

    Why do you think that? There is an area for commercial beekeepers, but I would bet that 99.9% of what goes on around this forum is backyard beekeeping. The fact that the commercial beekeepers are willing to comment at times concerning their prospective is the reason that I kept coming here.

    That's my take as well. Beesource is mostly comprised of
    small time beeks like myself. I enjoy the opinions of those
    doing it on a large scale as well. But they are a small
    portion of the community.

    Don't get me wrong, best of luck, but why compete with the
    best site out there?? Join in here and add your considerable
    web knowledge to Beesource.

    Sundance,
    My plan was never to compete with other forums, I don't plan for my forum to get anywhere near as big as the beesource forum is. I was more wanting to spread awareness and give amateur beekeepers and clubs a chance to talk. As I have said, my forum is based in Australia but international members are more than welcome.
    I am not trying to take members away from, or compete with sites like the beesource forum, instead, I am wanting to share knowledge in a different way, now that I have seen the beesource forum, I am sure to put a couple of backlinks to it from a couple of my sites as it is the biggest and most likely the best bee forum around.
