I've heard of Tapatalk, but I didn't know what it was and don't use it myself. Does anyone else here use it too?

I don't use it, but I know there is another hermit crab forum that does and it has many active members. I personally stick to browsers. Might be worth a shot, though, to get more people back here. Everything is mobile these days, y'know? So it couldn't hurt to try it out. The website will stay where it is, it just gives people access through an app on their mobile device where they can "collect" (in a sense) all their favorite forums.
Might be nice to have a thriving community here again?

Its does help especially if you are on the go and don't always have access, I personally believe it will help many and also entice people to join since society is constantly on the move and gives people the flexibility to access there favourite sites whenever they can.

So many here in this country have bypassed computers and laptops! Personally, my tablet ill not let me view this site correctly nonetheless reply. Any way to get an app or create an app for HCP that is user friendly?

If you are contacted privately (via pm or e-mail) and enticed to join another forum, please contact a Crab Crew member. This is an unethical practice.

I have found your site to be an invaluable source of information. My family are new to hermit crabs, but we are really enjoying them and tweaking the crabitat to make it a perfect environment for them. I particularly like that you are in Melbourne too so the references to suitable supplies are ones I am able to find locally. Keep up the good work!

I never knew of this community, but one day I found it when searching for a hermit crab related topic!

When I clicked it and realized that it was a forum, I went ahead and made an account because I like being a part of communities that deal with pets and animals, and I never thought twice about it. It had been a long time after registering had I returned, things were busy elsewhere and forgetting to come back on here. It's a great community, except for the lack of activity, it could be a bit more active. Nonetheless, I like being on it, because I visit every day to read some posts and make changes to my profile.

I will continue to visit and be online here as often as I can.
