New Supporter Perk: Site Search


Staff member
May 30, 2000
As TONMO approaches its 20th year, we have a ton of highly valuable content within our walls of great interest to cephalopod enthusiasts and researchers. With the growth of social media, TONMO has become a resource for others to dive deep to research content, and then represent it in another form, without necessarily citing TONMO as a resource. I'd prefer our content remain on our site and presented within its context. As such, the powerful TONMO site search engine is now limited to Supporters only -- another great perk (along with no ads, Supporters forum access, etc.) and a great way to show your support for this ongoing resource. If you ARE a Supporter and wish to evangelize our content, please do cite us as a source and/or an object of inspiration :smile:.

Sharing information is what TONMO is all about, and asking questions and initiating discussion is highly encouraged. If you don't want to become a Supporter, and you can't find what you're looking for through browsing (or external search engines which are not as precise), do ask away! Thanks for being a part of this great community.
