Thanks Dottie! This is just the Getting Started Thread (http://mernetwork.com/index/showthread.php?3124-New-Here-s-important-information-to-get-you-started-on-the-site-and-in-mermaiding!) with the how to work the forum info trimmed off (I had cross posted that thread here, but changed the title and the formatting):P But people weren't noticing the reference part much due to the "how to navigate the site" part being first. So I figured a reference thread would be good.

I'll keep adding and probably polish it up at some point. I may add a tab on the navigation bar for it if people think it would be helpful (especially for newcomers). We have so much awesome info on here it deserves to be somewhere where everyone can find it!

It's amazing what work you put into this forum! :thumbs up:

Is there a Second hand market? a special Plattform or a thread in in this network? couldn't find it jet.
I've been on Facebook in many groups searching for a tail... but no luck.
