    I could have pmed you but thought that your answers might be helpful to others.
    As you may know I am working on the breeders list. I founds out tonight that the post have a limit on how long they can be. What I have been doing is,

    Breeds.
    Australorp.
    Easter-egger houndit
    Welsummer, houndit etc.

    By State.
    Maryland has these breeds. Bred by such and so.
    1
    2
    3

    By Breeder.
    Each Breeder has this breed and this one, etc.

    I think that the State part is very helpful! I added the breeder section so I can link to the persons website and people can see what all they breed. I often have people ask me how many different breeds they can buy from me.
    I was thinking that I could take out the state and breeders section. I could then post them each on there own post. I could either start a new topic or post them as a reply. If I post them as a new topic I could put a link to them on the first post. If I posted them as a reply to the thread I am working on now, would I be able to post a link to that exact post? If we do this what do I do if I run out of room for one section like the breeds or something. I was also planning on adding a part for all N.p.i.p. breeders. Can you use your super Administrator powers and stretch the post limit?
    Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Is this a breeder list using the forum or the BYC page creator?

    Honestly, this project would best be served using Google Docs Spreadsheet. That way you could have columns for all the information and it could be sorted, filtered and searched any manner of different ways. Eventually it could even be imported into a more robust system.

    Also, we could assign a few people to help maintain the information so it doesn't have to rely on one person always being the one to keep things up to date. Not saying you'll let it go, but things happen and it is always good to have redundancies and helpers. [​IMG]

    Let me know if you need help brainstorming ideas and/or setting this up.

    It is using the forum. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=246596 I will look at the idea of google Spreadsheet. I meant to ask you if there was a way that I could give someone else permission to use the page. I am not ready to do that yet. But if there came a time when I could not do it I would want someone to take care of it.
