Well, if you want to go non-commercial, I don't mind. I'll remove myself until I learn to make my own dirt work! : )

Now I'm gonna need help on figuring out how to start a journal & add a link to it to my sig?
To start a Journal just go to the Journal Section and start a new thread, post you basic setup information, post some pictures, and keep it updated.

For pictures I like using Photobucket to keep my pictures and then to post here you just click the share IMG thing and it copies it and then you go to your thread post and right click and paste.

To put it in your signature open your journal thread and copy the URL. Then go the signature editor and click Insert Link and paste the url.
You can rename the link by highlighting the part in red...[URL="http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=1474072"]http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=1474072[/URL

and retyping what you want the name to be
like this...
[URL="http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=1474072"]Fraternity of Dirt[/URL

If done right it should look like this
Fraternity of Dirt

Non commercial will not suit the definition either.....since many use Miracle Grow etc.......and it's processed etc.......

Revise the definition somewhat to account for this? Or leave it be?

Tom ... I think we can let you in as an Honorary member. You have always had great advice and an ability to bring some real technical stuff about water chemistry and the like down to almost anyone’s understanding.

So take the next number you have my vote.

Best wishes,
Wes

I'm lost when it come to technical stuff with computers - I was nearly 40 before I got my first one! lol I use Picasa, so I started a Picasa web album with Google. Now I have to figure out how to link to it. I have to go into work now, so at least I won't cook my brain just yet...lol

Tom has a good point.

I think its more about DIY rather than using something like AS.

Yep, I hadn't thought of that until he mentioned it. I'm not sure someone like me, just adding premade "dirt" under another premade gravel really shows any kind of accomplishment in planning...

Thats all i do. i have found that a mixture of MGOC, some no name potting soil, and some no name top soil found at lowes seems to give me better results than just using 1 out of the 3.

My dirt tank! Not planted... yet. But i will have ~60 crypts on the left side. The tank is not near complete. It will have unidirectional water flow and a sick natural background bank.

Can i join? And what number?

I do get the point though, it is not true dirt per se but if I were to dig up my back yard, once I get through the first 10' of fertilized sand I would hit clay. Our subdevelopment used to be a nice orange grove before they razed it, dumped layer upon layer of fill crap then built houses all over the place. Sad, but true.
