Proposed UK+Ireland Registry

Well, there seems to be great enthusiasm behind the idea of a "British Isles" Registry (i.e. UK and Ireland). Mike East has volunteered to oversee its use, I'm volunteering to actually set the site up and design it, and William Jones has also volunteered his services. Most importantly of all, those lovely people over at the USCR have allowed us to use their site's engine.

One big question remains unanswered though: What exactly do we call it?

Seeing as I'm pushing to include Ireland in it, I don't think it's fair to just label it UKCR :p. Any input please?

And if anyone has any other comments to make, please let's have them.

Well if you want to give it an Irish touch try: RCKU

It was a joke about Irish people being back to front.

Caudate Registry for Ireland Plus England and Subterritories (CRIPES)

I like BICR (pronounced "Bicker") - British and Irish Caudata Registry. I don't like the term caudate :p. I'm serious.

I was thinking of labelling the Canadian version as the Canadian Urodela Registry, or the Canadian Urodela Tracker. I guess I could call it the Canadian Urodela Lissamphibia List, but I'd hate to stir up painful memories of killing off defenseless deformed larvae.

What about starting a European Union registry? instead of so many different registries. And within the EU registry we could set different categories along with a search engine for country, breeder, genus, specie, subspecies...
Just an idea.
Best greetings

Yago, in an ideal world I think your idea is perfect. I just don't think it's feasible yet, given the varying attitudes around Europe.

I fear that many people would view such a registry as "us" (Caudata.org, or perhaps even me?) trying to impose our (my?) will upon an entire continent.

I'm not willing to take that step until we have significantly more participation from the mainland European people, most of whom just read the forum and never utter a squeek. For example, so far this month there has been almost 4 times as much traffic from Germany as there has been from Canada. Considering we have several vocal Canadians, don't you find it odd that we don't have even a comparable number of vocal Germans? We're not talking a little traffic either. We're talking 10000 pages/50000 hits loaded by/from Germans (statistic based on .de accesses) in the first 17 days of November.

If you think that's weird, after the USA, Sweden is the country from which we get most traffic.

That's just Jesper and his itchy keyboard fingers


It would be seriously interesting to see that traffic chart. Can you get a breakdown of actually users by country in a given month, not just the number of hits?

John I like BICR, but British Isles Caudata Registry.

As this then would cover everywhere, Ireland, Scotland, Wales etc

Kim: me too.

Tim: I can't give you unique visitor numbers because the stat program doesn't provide them based on country. I can give you this though, the number of pages, hits, and bandwidth per country domain for the days November 1st-18th. Please note that com, net, org, tv, info, etc, can be registered in any country and do not indicate geographical location, but you can be sure that probably 60-80% of those are from the US.

Christmas Island - how about that
? In any case, greetings to our truly international audience.

Yeah well, I admit I have read 72000 pages in the last 17 days

I dunno it might have something to do with that I have repeatedly posted caudata.org's address on every swedish amphibian forum there is, but I imagine the interest were there even before that.

How has the swedish statistics changed over the past couple of months?

Let's replace "for" with "or". So BICR versus CRIB. What say everyone?

    Hi I recently rescued a lotl (i did weeks of research before rescuing) Hes mabey 5 or 6 years of age..the previous owner could not remember the exact age of him. I got him from her as he was or had been picked on by his tank mate another lotl who was bough with him from every younger age, I noticed one of his gills, a middle one at the end had split in two? And is slightly more floppy? He also appears or mabey I'm just over worried to mabey have lost some feathers, is that normal to lose some?...all levels in the tank are fine, but wondered if theres and advice anyone could give me as an experienced owner to a new one.

  • Axolotl Queen:
    @Lanalotl Sounds like the gills may have been nipped by the tank mate. If he is in his own tank and the parameters etc are all good, then he should grow them back and they should go back to full health and strength. However, depending on how old the injury is they may not fully grow back if they have been constantly nipped at.

    Can anyone tell me why this is happening? We just did a water change and after freaking out and whipping around the tank, an hour later they look like this. It won't let me send a pic. The edges of their gills are white and it looks like they have skin shedding off

    That sounds like severe skin damage. If you post a thread on the forum, you can attach pictures.

  • Murk:
    It sounds like something went wrong with the water change, so this could be very dangerous. Did you use a dechlorinator? Could it be there are traces of chlorine or soap in the water? (Or for example, in the bucket you used?)
    +1
    Unlike
  • Murk:
    Normally, I would recommend taking them out of the tank asap and putting them in a tub with fresh water, but if there's something wrong with your tap water or dechlorinator, that might not help either. Do you have acces to bottled water or rain water?

    I think my axie is dying, he’s never had any issues before, I’ve had him 3 years, today I noticed some fluffy looking stuff coming from his genital area so I took him out of his tank and did a full tank clean to make sure the water wasn’t infected as I thought it was fungus and then I noticed he had a cut on his belly which was only small about 5 hours ago and now it’s spread to all of his belly, what do I do I’m freaking out

    Update about my axie, unfortunately he has died over night, he looked as if he was bruised allover his belly, his mucus layer had also started to come off.

    Hi I have 2 4in juveniles (I’ve had them about 2 weeks and they are doing well I think they’ve grown a little already honestly) but I am supposed to go on a 5-6 day vacation in October about 3-4 months from now. I am wondering how I should go about their care when I am gone. I thought about putting them in separate (fairly big) containers with live plants and/or bubblers with a fan in the dark and either fridging them (my last plan) but I am hoping to to either have someone I trust come feed them and turkey baste waste out or just leave them out and clean the containers before we leave and have someone come check on them once or twice. Does any of this sound like a good or bad idea? I want the best for them. All help appreciated :)

    Could be he's just excited, spooked or temporarily stressed, which could pass in a few hours. It could also be an indicator of other problems. Do you have any recent water parameters?
