I think I've got it!

Have you ever seen on those dating website, or sites like friendster, I think even ebay has it...

Anywho...  on the site, if there is a "questionable" picture.  There's a little checkbox that you can check that says "Flag for Review".

Well, what would it take, to have a little tiny checkbox incorporated in every thread?  If someone thinks its good enough to be archived, then they'll check it, a PM will be sent to the mods of that forum so that they can review it, they approve it and TA DA, its archived?

It's a good way to get everyone involved (different perspectives are always nice to have).

I just don't know if it can technically be done? 

If so, a new downloadable file can be pubically offered monthly.

Junk threads can easily be discarded and we can also contribute the mushroom related threads to the FAQ.

I would definitely help out :smile:

but skipping the forums would miss much of shroomery's wealth of information, there is great stuff buried in there. shroomery is kinda like a gold mine, and you gotta dig to find the gold. y'all need to assign one mod full time to just tracking down and flagging/moving the 'gold' into a special section [whatever you decide to call that].
that step alone, gathering the greatest threads into a single area, would make shroomery much more useful and informative to the masses.
that's really the 1st step on the way to making downloadable database, gathering the wheat from the chaff so to speak.

Me too, its for a damn good reason. You don't like to think about worst case scenario, but if something ever does happen, the important info is still in the hands of many users.

I agree with Hippie, you'd have to have the forums included.  Thats where the gold is:) 

The more I think about this the more I realize that this would be a VERY big project.  There are years and years of information and cataloging that would need to be done. 

I'm thinking of two things...

1. Do a complete backup of the entire site once a month.  Burn onto CD or DVD and then distribute.  If the admins are up for this idea, I would be willing to have the CD's made and shipped.  Just send me one master copy once a month and I'll send them out for free.

2. Organize a group of people to go though the forums and clean them up!  This can be done but the people choosen to review the posts would need to be up for the challenge.  The mushroom cult. forum would take the longest.

Mushroom Cultivation - Avg posts per day  242.92 - Total posts  220329 

Adv. Mush Cult. - Avg posts per day  32.27 - Total posts  29270 

Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms - Avg posts per day  5.64 - Total posts  5118

Mushroom Hunting - Avg posts per day  45.83 - Total posts  41575

Contamination Forum - Avg posts per day  10.91 - Total posts  8928

Grow Log and Pictures - Avg posts per day  106.51  - Total posts  46762 

FAQ Contributions - Avg posts per day  0.83  - Total posts  286 

Now most of these forums were created on 03/01/01, which unless an admin tells me differently, we have access to threads that date back to 03/01/01 ???

I haven't included forums like "General Questions, Trip Tips, or ODD"...  Right now I'm just working on strictly mushroom cultivation :smile: 

If idea #1 is put into place, we won't need anyone to really sift through threads/posts, and people can dig for themselves on what information they want to find (as difficult as that may sometimes be).

The downside is all of the junk/repeatitave threads/posts and lack of organization.

If idea #2 is put into place, we'd practically have a shroomery novel on our hands:)  Clean cut information, easy to use and find. 

The downside is that its going to take a long time to catch up.  You're looking at organizing over 2 years worth of info.  Although, once its done, it would only need to be updated once a month.

What do ya think?
Lana

I think the username/ip story is BS no offence and a non issue.

Reason PUBLIC forum if someone wants your ip about what you are posting they allready got it and won't i repeat won't get that kind of info from a cd or downloadable version of plain text and pic's.

And if you don't want your post to be used than u shouldn't post at all cauze copys will be made if u like it or not.....


Just my 2 cent's

Further more great idea and i hope it'll work out.

agreed, it's a non-issue,
except to folks intent on being pricks.
what's the difference between storing a post here online
or storing it on diskette ?

is there any way to sort threads by page views ?
if you set the threshold at threads with say over 1,000 page views, for starters, that should quickly identify several potential candidates for archiveable threads.

sorry for the misunderstanding,
my question was not about that software
but rather it was directed to the admin
here if they could sort the threads here.

Ok, since I'd like to implement this idea, I'm thinking of starting slow.

I need a new CDR burner, so I was thinking of just getting a good DVD-R burner. 4.7 GB compared to 800mb.

ISO images burned to disc with a basic read-only offline version of the site.

I'm going to PM 3D and see what he thinks?

Did they finnally stanardize dvd writers? If not i couldnt recomend using those for back-up...

What would be perfect is if 3D could write a little script to drop the DB's to a "shit ton" of regular html files, one full thread per file. Of course the script would make a index for each forum and an index for the forums so it would basicly end up looking exactly like the original, but tonned down to just text.

When did this happen?

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/3
"Grow Section Archive [Rate]
You can download the zipped archive of this whole section , it is 27.3 megabytes though, so better use a download manager like GetRight or similar !"

The download is here: http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/24206

/me gives Anno a kiss!

Well its a start! Anno, should I ask how you did it?

There are programs that will convert dynamic website (like this one) to static.

Although, since I don't have a full copy of the website I can't do it. I'm happy to see that this is getting going!!!
