I vote NO to having specific "other" species section. If you need advice concerning other species...there could be a general "Off-toppic" section. Now how many caudate enthusiest will pass up any opportunity to enlighten others on "other" species' topics? BTW...I have a question concerning my son's turtle and daughter's pet rat....sorry got carried awayClick the image to open in full size.

Here's a good example...

I was brought to this site by a link posted in XFrogs (a yahoo group) regarding the pictures that Paris posted with her Pipa pipa in amplexus and spawning etc. So it was a froggy link that brought me here, at the time i had no caudates, now i have 9 various sized tanks of them!

The only anurans I'm interested in are those that share habitats with caudates I'm interested in, which pretty much rules out dart frogs and the like. In fact, I'm interested in anything that shares a rice paddy or a pond with an Asian newt or salamander Click the image to open in full size. But I really have no desire to discuss frogs or share pictures of them with people who don't share my interest in caudates. If the anurans section disappeared here, I highly doubt I'd go elsewhere. As long as it remains low-key, I say lets keep it!

(hehe....looks like i've voted twice)

In the same vein as Al's post, could the "other" topics be placed in the "General Discussion" forum or possibly at the bottom of the Species-specific forums? That way they'd still be available for those who want them and out of the way/off the main page for those who wish to present a caudate-only forum. And I have to say, although I browse those sections infrequently, I do enjoy reading/learning about frogs/toads and caecilians. Click the image to open in full size.

Things should be thought through and then decisions made. Decisions shouldn't be made and later justified by any means. That is why I vote for John Kerry.

Most caudatans are rather hard to maintain in FL.
I keep far more anurans than caudatans. I'll have to vote

YES re anuran content.

Well, this has run over the week and the "yes" vote has well-beaten the "no" vote. Therefore the other topics will remain. Thank you everyone for taking part.
