    Can it be possible to have a link to every member's tank in his "avatar"/ID section next to their posts.

    It will make it sooooo much easier to view a member posting's tank, without going into their profiles to search.

    Example:

    Not everyone:razz:

    I like the idea. It will make it much easier to view a new members tank and decide if their input should be taken seriously:p

    Dunno Dean, since someone changed my avatar a couple of weeks back (kept on changing it), it did not want to ".gif " anymore

    Dean has recently enabled for us to put a line of text below our avatar. If it is HTML enabled you could post a link to your tank there. Just like some of us do in our signatures.

    He He. Got it fixed. Eventually found it on the web

    Gaboon, even a link of a member's old tank can be put up. At least people can find your tank, or know where the member is coming from

    Too many times you get some one talking kak that they have never experienced, know-it-alls, at least someone says something, you can check their tank out. Is there not a saying"take someones advice by what there tank looks like?

    one thing though about the 'check their tank' theory of accepting advice. Lots of people mainly read through the forums and learn from other people's knowledge and mistakes. Does that make their 2nd hand knowledge inferior? They might not have gone through the same situations as the people they are advising but the information given may still be sound.

    Unfortunately there will always be Keyboard Cowboys and Know-It-Alls. You take advice with a pinch of salt

    People with keyboards bigger than their mouths, sort of like Meks in the fishing thread.

    The guys that have voted no, own up and voice your opionions.
