    I believe it will be a 3reef social group, where members can trade frags/equipment, share info on whats going on in our areas. We dont have any application process yet, so I guess your in! 8)

    Well being based in China and not in Florida , I doubt I will qualify for membership
    thus my opinion on the chosen name will not be required

    I do hope that guests are welcome on your forum
    the name your running with is funny IMHO but I can see why you may want to change it.

    I'm down with guests posting here. However, I believe its up to the members to either keep or choose another name...JMHO.

    The original name was funny(;)) but that may deter some people, IMO. lol Or just get laughed at. Just a thought.

    I used to be part of a group (non reef related) with the same acronym, once the novelty wore off it was kind of annoying and difficult to get people, especially sponsors, to take it seriously. Of course for a reef club you don't need sponsors but I thought I would throw it out there.

    Plus there is nothing in the name to distinguish that it is a south florida group and not just a florida group. Obviously my opinion doesn't matter since I'm in central florida, but I thought I would share just the same.
