    Hello all, I am new to this forum and so I will go ahead and introduce myself. My name is Daniel Duff; I am 26, and work as a lab tech at a water plant in North Georgia.

    I have also started a website dedicated to Georgia's population of mountain dwelling Horridus. It is new and growing so please be patient as it grows.

    Its main focus is of course education for those who are unfamiliar with timber rattlesnakes, and also those who are very familiar with timbers will hopefully also get some use from its content. I monitor around a dozen den locations in North Georgia and with the help of the Orianne Society’s Viper Specialist group. We hope to gather sufficient data to effectively safeguard timber habitat (dens, rookeries, migratory feeding grounds, basking balds etc.) in Georgia, and hopefully keep them from suffering a similar fate as their northern ranging counterparts.

    Please feel free to comment or make suggestions. Thank you all for your time.

    Since I am new I cant post my web URL, but it is in my profile.

    That new feature (the url block for new users) probably saved your website from being censored. ;) We get alot of users who join the site with the intent of simply promoting their own. Since that is the essence of spam it is strongly frowned upon here. lol (It's the reason why we implemented the url safeguard). The rules for the site state that if a new user posts a link to their website and that was their purpose for joining, we will ban them and censor the url from showing on this site. (That is in the rules you agreed to when you joined, which are also located at the bottom of every page.

    With the formalities out of the way, welcome to HC! I went ahead and approved the video you submitted, so discussion can start on that as well.

    Spam and scammers are rampant out there especially on the free classifieds offered by smaller websites, so I can understand the reason for the safeguard. Thank you for approving the video and hopefully I will have more in the future and of better quality.

    I am not so much interested in promoting my website, but rather the message behind the website. I appreciate the welcome and look forward to being a member here.
