It is so funny to me to see names like Tom Barr and Ghazanfar Ghori followed by "algae grower." Although I'm sure they do get some algae, I highly doubt they are algae growers! lol

Tom Barr and Ghazanfar Ghori are two rather well known aquatic plant growers/aquascapers. There work is on the internet, and I believe that both have entered into the AGA contests before, so that could be a place to find some of their work, if you wanted to look. I believe tha they both have websites, too.

As of now there is no option in phpbb2 to change an user's title, without first creating an entirely new rank. If I did this it would take me forever to create a ton, plus only the admin has this capability. The only way is the good old fashion way, posting! Even if there was a way I would not just change titles because then everyone would want theirs changed.

True, I'm a member on some forums and people crawl into forums and only make two or three posts and their moderater buddies give them ridiculous titles that make everyone else want one.

I guess the irony just suspends belief a bit.

I wasn't serious guys! I know that you can't be doing stuff like that because of special situations because everyone will think that they have some sort of special situation.

Actually, I like to tease Ghazanfar about his algae woes when he teases me about some new plant aquisition of his.

Ever notice it's hard to tell the difference in the rating of a person who has asked lots of questions from someone who has answered lots of questions? :hehe:

Well, I think a lot of people start out asking a lot of questions. Over time they (hopefully, but not always the case) incorporate this knowledge into their own.

Disclaimer: Above statement may not actually happen, but is only what one would expect of reasonably intelligent people. Results may vary. Reading a lot is not a proof positive sign of intelligence.
