So is R2R what Reef Central used to be?

Welcome. I was on RC a decade ago and only got back into sw a few months ago and registered here. Definitely a lot more active and I might be in the minority but I kinda hate these site based auction sales. It’s like spinning people up for no reason. Put a sale on your site and move on. In that respect r2r seems way more commercial/monetized.

My exact thoughts when I read the OPs question.

As for RC, I think the owner has it on cruise control. They have been claiming an upgrade is coming for a long time. I've seen several people volunteer to help with it and they have been ignored. The only forum group that has any substantial activity is the "Lounge" and I believe 90% of the posters there don't own a tank.

After everyone was banned on RC, they moved to R2R which is a more friendly non-ban happy forum. RC is still great for the massive repository of info it contains, especially the old Advanced Aquarist archives.

Maybe not ban happy but it doesn't take much to get your hand slapped.

rumor has it BrianD from reefcentral has six different proxy accounts here and has never been banned for any of them as he reads and interacts with us daily, conducting a remote study in effective site management, incognito to the maxxx.

Rtr does not fear outlinking or try and squelch it. That management trait is key in designing a web forum that will last


Rtr is a very informative and positive reefing site.
Welcome!
