    Could you please put back our Reference Section? It was an admin controlled section that only Jorats or Lilspaz68 could add to and it contained a library of important, reliable information for rat owners.

    Otherwise, could you put up a new Reference Section and only allow Jorats or Lilspaz68 to post to it. In this way they could slowly re-establish our important library of reliable information.

    Yes, PLEASE, is it possible to re-instate it? It's like shrinks operating without the DSM-5... or at LEAST do as SQ says and give us back that MOST IMPORTANT section.

    Is A New Reference Section going to be created???
    It was an extremely important section of this forum, a resource of good info that was easily accessible

    I sincerely hope that you soon create a reference section and allow Jorats solely, (or Jorats and Lilspaz68) to post reference threads in there

    It does not look as if it's going to happen.

    That is too bad.
    Is there anything we can do to help it happen?

    Are you seeing information that should be put into a reference section?

    @SQ - here's what we can do. We need to start a reference thread, and add links to appropriate threads. Once that grows then we can consider reinstating a Reference Forum.

    Would you start a reference thread, and I'll make a sticky of it. You can add thread links, and I'll watch it for editing that may be needed.

    I could do that but I would prefer some controls to ensure that only good reliable information is placed into a reference thread or a reference section. The control I would suggest is that only
    Jorats be allowed to post info to this section as she can reliably judge if it is good or incorrect information
    In our previous reference section, people could not add to the threads thus incorrect or misleading info could not be added or included

    If Jorats wants to do that, it would be appreciated. But, it will have to be her decision.
