wow, RC, wow. I go there to sell stuff but that is about it. I am a little ashamed though that i have 2XX post over there :o

They also don't have awesome mods like we do. NR's search also always works no matter if you pay or don't...

I :wub: NR!

RC is not the best place to ask questions. There's a lot of good info there but this forum is much more welcoming to everyone. However if you just want to lurk RC is a great forum to learn from some pretty hardcore reef hobbyists. Their large tank forum has some jaw dropping build threads.

Reef Central is the closest thing to a fascist web forum I've -ever- seen. I mean, to block links of anyone who isn't a sponsor, to block and censor links to other forums that might help people out... Instead, it's all about RC, who supports RC, and who is giving RC money.


agreed, it is the Socialist Republic of China equivalent on the web when it comes to reefing forums

this is not a bash, it is simply an observation, and since i am not the only one to come away from RC feeling this way it should not be considered as bashing, it is a common perception from all sorts of people

Seriously though, NR is great, but it takes up way too much of my time.

JK, I actually like RC for some of the specialized forums. The classifieds are good too. But they are nowhere near as good as this place :D

Yup...its cool here. Funny thing over on RC. I typed in the URL for this forum in a response to a guys question. The link to nano-reefs URL was instantly replaced by RC's URL. Until that, I was not so down on RC...but thats CHICKEN SH#T.


Same here.

RC isn't the only one that censors out the addresses of sites they don't like. C.M. does it here to a certain site just the same.

RC just does it more. A lot more.

5.5g reef: 96w Quad 50/50("rigged")| AC500 full modded fuge. (retired)
2.5g reef: Complete DIY 2.5g acrylic tank & hood (retired due to split seam ;_;).
20g long prop tank. 10g sump, 175w MH.

Coming soon! 2.5g dubbed "Pulse".

but seriously, to cm's defense i think he filters out offending sites (there's actually more than one iirc) that had launched attacks or spammed NR. so i guess they're more like auto-defenses than an arbitrary "dislike" of the site from cm.

i still say the best defense is a complete annihilatory offense though.

but i think he's more 'turn the other cheek', i guess. meh.

but i've never known chris to edit a true informational or even referral link, even to "competitors". that's actually one of the reasons i've always liked NR the most out of the other places. it's only for "history" reasons that something like that's been done afaik.
