I'm not understanding the purpose of the magnet. So, I get an MR magnet for my car - ok cool I support the site, whatever. So how does that tie into you making friends? If I have one on my car are you going to follow me?

So the friends dont like you because you have a large tank? Im not following that line of thought.

My friends like me, but they are not into SW Tanks at all. My wife thinks I?m crazy, but my kids love the tank. When I got rid of my 29G my son was crying.
I think if one of the LFS will sponsor the magnets that will be nice, & then on the bottom off one of the corners on the magnet they can have their logo with their phone #. If I had a store I would so do that, like with a $20 purchase get a MR magnet!!!
Come on!!! You guys are no fun!!!

i think that the whole magnet making friends thing is for example u in ur neighborhood supermarket and u see a car with d magnet u know is a member that u didnt know existed around u and probably a person to trade with and hopefully a friend in d future. come on lots of us dont know each other until we trade sell or buy. mayb ur next best reefer buddy is around ur block and u dnt even know

So then you want this magnet not only to show support for MR, you want this magnet to be a public invitation for people to talk to you? So I can not have this magnet on my car unless I openly welcome total random strangers to come up to me and converse?

Why not just come to the BK happy hour and other events James puts on? Why not buy/sell and get to know people that way - when they welcome you into their homes. There are so many ways to do it, this magnet deal just seems absolutely impractical and inane.

Just wait for the swap and talk to as many reefers as you'd like. Or go hang out at your LFS and introduce yourself to everyone who purchases something saltwater related. :scratchch :idea: :D

No... when you do that the seller posts on the forum and you reply, you talk about a place to meet and then you meet. He is not some random dude coming up to you just because he sees a magnet on your car. It's completely different. You are two people who have spoken previously and agreed upon a business transaction.

Oh? I don't really remember peoples MR forums names unless they are memorable. Sorry, bro.

Insane? I said 'Inane'. Look it up, its a different word completely.

F*** it I'll put one on my car, it's a POS anyway. I think my tank is worth more than my car.

The MR patch (as seen on my car to the left) is available at the front desk at the swap (~$10)... .I have it on 1 of my jackets, and is a great conversation starter, especially when I wear it to LFSs.
It is an 'iron on' patch, but can easily be placed on the side or back window of your vehicle.

We had both magnets and vinyl stickers for the Astronomy Forum I was a member and moderator on. I can tell you it was a great way to meet people you otherwise may not have known were in the hobby. If its not for you its VERY SIMPLE. Don't purchase one. Its not rocket science....

Again

So again this weekend I spotted another reef tank in my neighborhood,the window shades where open so just from driving slow on this block I noticed it, and my 6 year old son was in the car with me & he was like ?Dad look, a big tank? this time is was a big one and it looks like it was a custom 210 gallon,

I don?t think the tank owner is a member of MR, we got to do the MAGENT thing!!!! We will all benefit from having more local members.
