What about a downloadable archive of the Shroomery?
    #1766967 - 07/31/03 07:26 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I'm looking around at other site, http://www.nansnook.com to be exact.

And they have a pretty nice idea.

You can download the entire site (for personal archive/offline browsing). As seen here - http://www.nansnook.com/archives/download.html

I would love to see this with the shroomery!

Once a month, offer a new downloadable archive like nans nook.

I completely understand that its going to be HUGE! a few gigs... but with the age of cable modems/DSL and other fast connections, it could be done.

Any thoughts on this?

Mycotopia sells CDs... Which have a bunch of extractions and cultivation teks. A few mycology things that are better than the shroomery archives (like on the subject of cloning)

That is an awesome idea Lana, especially if this site went down somehow, for people to have copies of it all over the world.

It could be a huge file, how about a version with no pics?

Sourceforge.net might be a possible place to host such a file. Free file hosting, over 100 megs.

Another idea might be to sell CDs or DVDs of the Shroomery, with the profits going to the site.

hmmmm

/me thinks. 

Would it be possible to include only a few forums?  In other words no OTD :smile: 

I'm willing to do it but I just need more information.  Even if I have to find a host.  I'm not to knowledgeable on bandwidth and its price anymore. 

If the file/ISO is large, I can't see a lot of people downloading it, but I'm sure there will be a few.  Especially those who want to browse offline while travelling (like me) :smile:

I think it is an awesome idea.. I have thought of it at times too.
It would be large but i would be willing to download it
strictly for archive purposes. You never know this site could be shut down someday. It would be great if a bunch of us had an archive.

matts, thats a very good point....

/me thinks....

I know that this probably wouldn't be possible but I've gotta ask...

I can see that users names/ratings/location etc is in a column on the left hand side of each page. 

If there was some way that we could delete that column, all you'd see are the posts.  No user names.  I'm sure that there will be some user names in the posts, but thats life :smile: 

A downloadable version of the FAQ would be cool, but it definitely wouldn't be as extensive as an entire download of a forum.  There are just too many little tricks of the trade that generally aren't included in the FAQ.

Ok, hows this for a corn ball idea!

A database of all the user names is put togehter, run a script that cross references the names with any text on a page.  If a users name is on a page it would be *** out :smile: 

I got the idea from a meta tag generator I once saw :smile:

Any more ideas?

Lana

Could work, but a lot of usernames are real words. And you don't want real words being removed from a sentence.

Assuming the thread rating system has been used effectively, a good start might be collecting all the 5 and 4 star threads.

What about hotline?

Someone could set up a server with the file on a server, and people could connect and download it. No web hosting involved.

Terrible idea. Matts has it right.

Hippie's an ass for selling his member base out.

People don't post here to have their words saved for archives.

I've been thinking about this...

I understand Matts views and agree. So I thought, maybe a downloadable version of the FAQ's?

The whole purpose of this idea is for archiving as well as referrence.

I looked back at nans nook.. Then I realized that maybe I should rephrase my statement.

I'm only thinking of a downloadable version of the treadd and posts, NOT the entire website.

If John Doe post about growing a million pounds of shrooms, unless you have John Does IP address (or he posts his address) to go after a ficticious name may be hard.

Its a stretch, but there's truth behind it.

Also, if of taking that left hand column out, you wouldn't know who posted what? Even if someone said within the post "Hey Username, nice setup". Prove Username posted it.

Why do you think you never hear of cases of people who post on message boards getting busted. They don't get busted for what they write, they get busted for what they do.

Well, they would if they lived during the 3rd reich!

I'd still like to hear your ideas on this, so spit'em out!

Lana

first of all,
boxtop,
if i'm an ass then so is nan,
because he's doing the exact same thing.
yet you single me out to call me names,
what's your problem ?
i thought when i lifted the ban on you,
we had resolved our problem.
seems i was giving you too much credit.

anyway, i don't sell-out my member base.
i select, via my software,
what goes on my cd's,
and it doesn't include our member list.
no IP info is included, just html text files and pix.
nan's download originally came from mycotopia,
it was our first attempt, our 10,000 post archive.
he's plagarized it, of course, by removing both
mycotopia's and my name [even from my own posts!!!], but it's still essentially the
same that he took from me with some more recent material
from the nook itself, and everything else he could find on the web worth taking.
but mycotopia's has now grown much larger,
so downloading it via FTP
is not really an option any more.
we now have 2 files, one is about 162 meg zipped,
the other is about 260 meg zipped.
the larger is more recent,
the smaller contains many posts we were forced to
delete from our online message base due to space constraints.
i only include the relevant forums,
the archives, fungi, botanicals, etc.
but i could break it up into individual forums
if i desired.
my suggestion for you all would be to create a special forum and move the 'best of the best' into that forum and just export that material onto cd.
we've been charging $15, including shipping, for our cd,
which easily holds both large files.
i imagine shroomery would need 2 cds, minimum, though,
to hold it all.
no download problems with a cd either.
i don't know exactly how many we've sold so far since we
began offering the cd a couple months ago,
but we proly average 1-2 a week,
so a place as popular as shroomery could, in theory,
sell many more.
i think it's a great idea, that's why i did it.
folks can browse offline at their leisure,
a big plus for those on dial-up.
good luck with your project.
peace

downloadable version of the faq's is a great idea and very easy to do imo
btw that's how i found the shroomery, started browsing erowid and the link came up from somewhere,i ended up opening the tek's pages one by one and saving them for offline browsing, i still have them somewhere on my hdd

I too had this idea. You could just do the relevant forums and all non-forum related stuff.
