Hey everyone.

As I'm sure many of you have noticed, we are implementing a few forum changes including the deletion and/or merging of some of the current forums.  This is all in an effort to clean up the clutter of our message board... an attempt to consolidate information into efficient categories to provide for a better and easier browsing experience.  To give you an idea of the changes being made, I have prepared a list:
Mushroom Pictures will be deleted, posts moved to the Grow Log forum (renamed to Grow Log and Pictures Forum)

Spore Exchange will be deleted, posts moved to the Marketplace.

Contest Forum will be deleted, posts moved to the Marketplace.

Shroomery Design Team will be nuked.

Literary Arts & Film Archive will be deleted, posts moved to the Creative Arts & Multimedia forum (renamed to Arts and Multimedia).

Computer and Everyday Security will be renamed to Computers and Technology, with legal-issue posts moved to Political (renamed to Politics, Activism, and Law).


So the final list looks like this, italicized forum descriptions or titles indicate a change was made:

So why is The Pub still a forum if you want to clean up the place?

While we are in the process of 'cleaning up' the OTD, we feel that The Pub is a necessary counterpart to allow for a slower paced discussion where the users actually take each other seriously instead of just posting one-liners as quickly as possible. If the Doob's work on the OTD project is sucessful, we can then address the issue of eliminating the Pub and combining its posts with the OTD.

it's "OTD".
not "the OTD".

if one wants to refer to it as "the OTD", it should be followed by "forum", as in "the OTD forum".

this is not the first time i've had to address this matter.

Good enough. Another question: why is there still a Literary Films and Archieves forum if it was supposed to be comined with Creative Arts?

While I've gone ahead and implemented the changes in the forum titles and descriptions - the technical administrators still need to find a way to move all the relevent posts from the old forums to the new ones before we can shut them down. The Marketplace has also been constructed, but is unavailable until the moderators of that forum finish their official policies and guidelines - as well as the new Supplier Policy I've been working on, which will be much more comprehensive than our old Chem Supplier Policy.

Bear with us. We're trying to get all this done as soon as possible, but it's a lot of work to coordinate between the different people working on the project.

I find that is a strange suggestion to put Grow Log and Mushroom Pictures together.

There are many peopkle here who probablyt do not want to assoc iate with cultivation who just are interested in edible and magic shrooms but should not be associated with cultivation which is illicit since many people go out and collect wild mushrooms and magic ones and take pictures of them naturally and they do not fall under the category of grow shrooms which suggests cultivation pictures only.

There should still be a forum for mushroom pictures in general and then you can have a Cultivation Pictures forum?

mj

I mean there are many people who post shroom pictures from their natural in situ environment which has nothing to do with cultivation or grow log.

Think about it.

Hey Mj,

If you look through the Mushroom Pictures forum, you will notice that quite a large percentage of the threads deal with mushroom cultivation pictures - not simply mushrooms in the wild. Therefore, to reduce redundancy, we want to combine the grow log and pictures forum since there are grow pictures posted in the current Mushroom Pictures forum as it is. Mushroom cultivation is not illegal in all countries/territories, which is why we allow people to post such information. If you want to start a thread about mushroom art that is fine - it doesn't mean that you are associating yourself with cultivation pictures.

ITs not about mushroom art Geokills.

I post hundreds of more photographs of wild psilocybes and wild shrooms than I ever do Mushroom art and many others do also.


Well I disagree but then that is my right.

Have a shroomy day

mj
Anyway

I assume that in the new marketplace, you'll only be able to sell legal spores?

define legal spores. IIRC they are all legal save for a couple US states and there select areas. so, yeah, why wouldn't we be able to trade pc spores considering they are LEGAL. your being redundant.

:blush: I do apologise for my vagueness :wink:

Being as the server is in the USA, will the shroomery allow members to buy or sell spores which produce fruits that contain psilocybin/psilocin. :laugh:

We are compiling an extensive list of rules for the forum, which should be opening tonight sometime. These rules are based around the General Supplier Policy, which is linked to at the bottom of each BB page.
