RIP OTD
    #2117851 - 11/18/03 03:03 AM (19 years, 2 months ago)

OTD was officially pronounced dead November 17th 2003 around 7:00 eastern standard time. The attending phsycian at the time of writing does not have confirmation if OTD has been cryogenically frozen for re-animiation at some future date or if mortician is already pumping the blood from OTD's still warm veins.

Cause of death at this point is still rather vague. Some said OTD suffered from financial problems, other stated OTD was subject to large amounts of negativity and depression, others still still regarded OTD as having no purpose in the community. Regardless of the motivations OTD was systamatically euthanized by a small governing counsel around 7:00 PM today.

OTD did not go quitely into the dark night and fought the poisons at every step. After several days of continuous battle it was succesfully terminated. Gone but not forgotten.

Official memorial services are still pending. Friends and family are encouraged to do everything they can to embody the glorious spirit of OTD in their ongoing actions.

The idea is *not* to start up a million threads with your opinons about OTD in the Pub. If your thread is deleted, it's for a good reason.

If you keep making a new one saying the same thing- you might get a warning, but the way things are looking, you'll probably be banned. Might wanna stop doing that...

I understand that gumby dude, but "a million threads" and a couple are way different. I thought this one had some merit and shouldn't be deleted for no reason.

Anybody else see that OTD's fate is similar to that of Chris Farely, John Candy, and John Belushi?

They were all hilarious, they were all larger than their 'systems' could handle, and now they're all dead.

Coincidence?

tis a very sad evening
it's raining here, which suits my mood.
OTD is the only reason you people even know me.
I was never a big computer person. I used it for a few things.
work mostly. then I came here to find out about mushrooms
then I found OTD and well most of you know I'm always here.
and I have been since early 2001.

I can only hope they bring back OTD
I've seen it WAY worse than it was
and I thought it had gotten ALOT tamer than it was.

/hears taps being played in the distance followed by a 21 gun salute.

the least you coulda done was drape the rebel flag over OTD as you lowered her into the grave.

Well, OTD was one of my favorite parts of this website, and it's a long standing tradition here. The truth is, the Shroomery is not only a site for people to learn about mushroom cultivation, and it never has been. From the beginning, it was a place for people to hang out, joke around, and make friends.

It's been around since the start, those who decided to be rid of it have not. It's my impression that they have no respect for some of the institutions here, not do they even have a full understanding of what OTD was all about.

It was one thing to impose some new rules, it's another thing entirely to get rid of the forum.

So I'm getting the fuck out of here. The administration has lost touch with the users.

The day OTD comes back is the day I come back.

Farewell, Shroomery.

Shroomery made a big mistake by taking off OTD. The cultivation forums are just boring once you have mastered growing and the Pub just doesn't allow for some of the content that OTD had. I hope it comes back. I know im not the frequent of a poster but I myself will not be visiting the shroomery nearly as much without OTD and I think that will be the same for a great many other people. It really is a shame and to think it could be about money too.

What OTD was, and still is, and will be when it comes back does not thehnically fit the definition of "vital" or "to".

It was not about money.
The reasons are quite varied, but most of it stems from the members not being able to control their behaviour to a reasonable level, attacking others in an obnoxious manner, the hogging of forum resources from post whoring, and generally acting like the immature children where they can behave however they want. The downward spiral of OTD was progressive and could have been contained if the members had kept themselves in check, but there had to be rediculous behaviour that went on and on.
OTD is not gone forever, it is taking a break, and hopefully when it returns everyone will be able to coexist without flaming everything in site. No one wants to take away free speech, we merely want to make it more friendly and a place where everyone has free speech, not just those who get off on treating others like shit. The limits were pushed further and further until the admins had no choice but to take action.
Hopefully this break will teach us all something important, and we can get back to OTD in the near future with a new outlook.

Oh, well anyway as long as it's coming no worries :smile:

I just hope the "toning down" don't go so far down that it turns into another pub, that's what the pub is already here for. Peace though, everything happens for a reason.

I hear ya there, but I figure since I started posting/reading the OTD I lost about $1500-2000 a week due to my time being occupied. :grin:

So I'll make some extra cash, all is good

Well your eternal position in the American league east(2nd) is secure at least man, until the Toronto Blue jays actually spend some money and get a couple of GOOD starting pitchers and at least one good closer(they can play ofence and defense with almost anybody) we will ALWAYS be sucking the red sox tail wind :frown: The teams owner(s) (Rogers cable) is cutting back their budget from 53 to 50 mill this year so you just KNOW that ain't gonna happen.......i mean they could trade Delgado(who really SHOULD have been MVP over A rod) but then they'd be giving up too many homers,ribbies etc.......i just got back late last night and the first thing i did was go to the sports section :grin:

It looks like everything is going as planned. I have noticed that the number of users at the shroomery has been a little lower since yesterday.

Its a bit premature to say this, but, so far so good. :shake:

I mainly just missed off that without the OTD we cant make racist jokes anymore.


I think if you guys are going to completely fade out the OTD, you should atleast make the pub less strict, so we can atleast hear moe's great stories. And that racism will be accepted (but only in the form of a joke)

I mean I am the least racist guy in the world, but you gatta admit, racist jokes are REALLY FUNNY.

Well, OTD was one of my favorite parts of this website, and it's a long standing tradition here. The truth is, the Shroomery is not only a site for people to learn about mushroom cultivation, and it never has been. From the beginning, it was a place for people to hang out, joke around, and make friends.

It's been around since the start, those who decided to be rid of it have not. It's my impression that they have no respect for some of the institutions here, not do they even have a full understanding of what OTD was all about.

It was one thing to impose some new rules, it's another thing entirely to get rid of the forum.

So I'm getting the fuck out of here. The administration has lost touch with the users.

The day OTD comes back is the day I come back.

Farewell, Shroomery.




me 2 bye.

The truth is, the Shroomery is not only a site for people to learn about mushroom cultivation, and it never has been. From the beginning, it was a place for people to hang out, joke around, and make friends.




WEll you are wrong Pluck.

This is a shroom site and always has been since 1998 when it was created by Ythan and Aphex. It is as it says onthe front page of the site, which has been on the front page of the site since it begans a shroom site, not an OTD site The only thing missing is the brain logo which origianlly graced the page.

This is from the first page of the site of the Shroomery.

[QUOTE]This site was created to help stop the spread of dangerous misinformation related to magic mushrooms, so that people can make intelligent, informed decisions about what they put in their bodies. We made an effort to consolidate the plethora of information about magic mushrooms available on the World Wide Web into an all-encompassing source of accurate facts, and we think we can safely say that this page will be the only reference you'll need for mushroom information.[/QUOTE]

Bask in the other forums, renew your sense of The Shroomery as a whole.



LISTEN, READ, THINK.



As I have read and quoted, OTD will be closed for ten days, up to two weeks, that's a small break and it is worth it to keep OTD around.
Admittedly the only posts I have made in the past few months (excluding a handful) have been in OTD, I will change that. Regardless of who is "in power" and who is making money off of this site I love it. All you need to do is have some restraint in your post whoring and venture into other forums.


Be productive, help The Shroomery advance.


That is all it will take!


That would solve most of the problems OTD has.

    #2121639 - 11/19/03 09:56 AM (19 years, 2 months ago)

my thoughts and I'm done

i think what so bothers some of us is this:

anybody can make a site that has info...thats nothing special really...again the shroomery does a good job at that...along with the creation of the shroomery a little place called OTD came to be after a while. again that in itself is nothing special.

the community and what OTD became and morphed into WAS something fairly unique and special. i have never seen anything like it anywhere else. i must admit i haven't looked far, there was no need. yes there is TDUB and thats a cool place because of its own developement and culture, TDUB is not OTD II or anything. i like it for different reasons and different loyalties.

OTD wasn't always pretty and it wasn't always comfortable...either are shrooms btw....but along with the discomfort that that freedom allowed some very special and great things were posted over the years.

i cant count how many times i was almost on the floor laughing at something in OTD. often it was at something shocking...something uncomfortable. i cant count the cool people i got to know though OTD. If it passes away or "changes", we all have great memories of a special time and place. i know it wasn't always awesome...i dont think anything is...its sad to think there is a new group coming to the shroomery wont 'discover" the shroomery most of us did. (i think everyone goes thru a special discovery phase and for some when its was over for others its was just begining). lets face it many of the long timers here stayed due to OTD after they got their growing goals accomplished. btw thanks for the help in the early days ShroomGod.

im willing to wager a good portion of the mods and admins (past and present) became shroomerites and not just growers because of the OTD experience. I know not all so dont start with that bull as i made this disclaimer.

another point i would like to make is chat does not = OTD. that arguement is lame and is like some "spin" line from a political campain . come on we all know its different.

so OTD was not for you...DONT GO THERE.. i see people i respect fighting eachother ..another faction leaves, another void is formed. there is room for it all imo..hell ill kick in cash but in the end that not the reason i was told.

i know the current leaders of the shroomery are doing what they think is best...for that thank you...but the shroomery that is being morphed would not be as great as it is without the contributions and time put in by people before. you inherited something special imo. and a big part of that special was an OTD and its culture that had developed over years.

no its not the end of the world. its is just cool website with a cool little corner called OTD that many liked, but not all. its a shame imo to see it and what it offered disapear, thats all.

my 2 cents

Nice post oDin, and I agree. Fortunately, regardless of the conclusion we come to, a Read-Only archive of the past OTD will be available to members who would like to view it.

It was started in '97. You can here in 98, and I remember that. You made a post pointing out some errors in an FAQ.

The site has always been a shroom site, as I said, but it has also always been a community for people who just want to shoot the shit. Hell, back in those days it was rare to find a member over 18, let alone having rules requiring it.

Read what I said carefully:

"The truth is, the Shroomery is not only a site for people to learn about mushroom cultivation"

The sarcastic sense of humour that is popular in OTD may not be completely understood by many of the members who prefer the other forums on the site, and that's fine. They don't have to go into OTD. In fact, if they want to discuss unrelated topics, there's an excellent forum for them, called the pub.

(I know I said I was gone, but I take that back in part. I'm just making posts related to this situation. Nothing else.)

Why must you constantly feel the need to spread negativity? If someone very close to you died (or was in a coma or something) and some PAB kept saying shit like: "get it over it pansy...shit happenes" I seriously doubt you'd just sit there an go: "yeah, you're right...I'm making a big deal over nothing here, I should just shut the fuck up and quit being a little baby about it"

Just because OTD didn't mean jack shit to you doesn't mean that it didn't mean anything to anyone else. I know damn well that it was much more then some random online message forum to a lot of people here - it was a place to unwind at the end of a long day, a place to meet new people and foster new friendships, a place where you could go to vent if you ever felt the need to do so, and so much more that I could go on like this for quite some time (which I probably would too, just to prove a point...but I already know that if I did that you'd just see it like I was trying to glorify it inot something it's not, and imediately dissmiss everything I had to say in exactly the same way as you'd dismiss the ravings of some psychopath on Central ranting about the end of the world)

My point is that it really did mean a whole lotta something to a whole lotta people here...and you're cold-hearted attitude towards those of us who are still in mourning, is doing nothing but enflaming the very same negative vibes that we're all trying hard to avoid. From my point of view - you're trying everything in your power to instigate another flame war...and you know as well as I do that that's uncalled for. If you don't like to read other people's posts about how they feel a part of them is somehow missing now that they have a void in their life caused by something they were close to being taken from them - THEN DON'T READ EM (it really is as simple as that) No one's forcing you to partake in these conversations - you're going out of your way to infest threads that you obviousy don't have a connection with, simply to state an 'opinion' that you know is going to touch a nerve with many of the people here (and I'm not just talkin about this particular thread either...I've seen you weave in an out of several OTD related threads recently - and you're always parading around with that same exact 'anti-OTD' message of how much you enjoy our misery an how much we should all just learn to let it go an move on with our lives)

I really do think you need to stop being so insensitive towards others...and you certainly need to realize that no matter how much you might think you're just excersizing your rights of free speech, you're really just trampling on other people's rights and insulting em in the process. You are, in essence, breeding the very same attitudes and thought process that got OTD where it's at today...you're feuling a fire that doesn't need to be burning any longer - and you need to stop.

The term constantly is hardly used with much accuracy, integrity, or honesty when I have only put forth two minor posts in this concise nature. No need to make someone your whipping-boy. Worse has been said concerning the temporary closure of OTD - why you chose to single me out seems quite odd.

Here is my response to you. Have a good night :thumbup:

you find that odd huh?

well it seems damn odd to me that that several of your posts in that thread you linked to have conviently changed over the course of the last couple of minutes (like how your simple amibigous comment "kill OTD" has now mysteriously turned into an actual reply that has a real meaning behind it) didja ever think that *maybe* the reason I specifically singled you out was because up until the point I pointed out your childish behavior for everyone else to to see (which, I might add, was apparently covered up) a lot of what you said was little more then senseless OTD bashing with no real point to any of it? Cause I guarantee a lot of what I've heard you say recently has revolved entirely around how glad you are that OTD is gone, and how much of a waste it was in the first place, and (probably more so then anything else) just how much you think we're taking this whole thing way too far, and how we need to just quit our bitchin an go find someplace else to be a bunch of whiney ass little whores (disclaimer: not in those exact words obviously...but certainly in how it came across)

I'm interrested in seeing just how many more of your posts change over night. Cause I got a feelin you're gonna retract every negative comment you've made recently an try an make it *seem* like you've been playing nice this entire time (and knowing you - you'll probably even come in here afterwards an make some inane reply about how I'm delusional and I'm simply reading too much into it)




you really are one piece of work, you know that

foul play, huh? I guess making two minor revisions (I deleted two smileys and three words total, if you remember correctly) in order to avoid argument is somehow a conspiracy to bring you down. If you say so, Muppet. I hope you are less tense once this OTD situation is cleared up.

peace out
