Pub History.......

For those of you who don't know about how the Pub came to life, here's a brief history.

In 2001 I was getting a bit fed up with OTD, especially after that summer where we had a shroomery gathering and that spirit of community I experienced there was missing from this website, it was so frustrating to see these people in real life and then come back to the BB only to see our only community forum be such a negetive place.

After this gathering called CAPS 2001, I went ahead and created a private invite only forum called 'Thors forum', it was in fact renamed a few times and eventually became known as Cheers. It remained hidden and was a forum that you could only be invited into.

Well after a while we saw this as a bad thing, it was becoming an elitist thing even though in all honesty it attracted so many old regulars to post again because it had such a cool vibe to it.

I was actually against turning cheers public, but we voted and it became a slim majority that felt it should be made public as an alternative to OTD. It was eventually done and not much later Cheers became The Pub.

I'd like to think the name Pub came from my long winded example of how I felt that our conflicts with OTD could be explained best by a neighbourhood pub. Damn, now I must find that post, off to the archives I go!

I must say that Ripple has done such an outstanding job with this forum turning it into this wonderfull community forum that its become.

Heres to you Cheers/Pub!  :beer::beer::beer::beer:

Its only going to get better  :thumbup:

I'm not too surprised OTD is number one, but I'm glad to see the Pub as number three as it's also no surprise that Cult is number 2. :grin:

Thanks Vampy for your help, I found that old thread.

Here's the Pub analogy I spouted to OTDer back in the day..

Shroomery analogy - The bar
#1292059 - 02/08/03 06:08 PM


Ok, here's how I see this place, using an analogy we can all relate to let me explain how I feel.

Shroomery Bar, on 1st street. Next to the 24hr adult video store.

Imagine if you will that OTD is a bar, and that this bar is a typical Pub with one long bar and a few bartenders behind it.. There is the pool room area, people shooting stick.. There is the darker seating area where people are chatting away.. There is the game room where a few video games are and its pretty well light.

Imagine if you will if this was a bar that meant many different things to many different people. There is the crowd who walks in and can't stand the bright light and noise of the game room; and of course they can't stand the video games since they find it too childish.. This crowd sits down in the dark and find a happy place to chat with friends and away from the noise.

The next group comes into the bar and finds the dark area where people are 'chatting' to be stupidly boring and the video games not fun so they goto play pool in the bright light of the pool room. This group has lots of energy and likes to make lots of noise, they look over at the darker area and wonder how people can come in here wasting time just chatting and drinking..

The next group walks into the bar and wants to play vids! Hey video games are fun (Golden Tee rulez!).. They don't feel like sitting down chatting, they think the game room losers are idiots since they play pool and try to pretend they are some hot shits..

The bartenders (think who the bartenders are... mods) look at the pub and see every group is having fun doing their own thing.. Nobody is bothering anyone, and everyone gets what they want out of this popular bar. However the bartenders know very well that its early and once everyone has been drinking that the different groups end up lipping each other off or bothering each other.

In fact sometimes this bar is outright scary for new people cause when someone new to this place walks in and wants to have a drink the locals in the pub don't make them feel welcome.. In fact some of them outright gang up on new people to make the want to leave.

After a while the bar starts to become dominated by one group, and the other groups feel less and less welcome.. Until finally one group has basically the bar to themselves and the other 2 groups have given up on the place.

The owners (admins) feel that its gotten way out of hand and that this bar should be a place for everyone to enjoy.. So they say to the bartenders, hey tell us honestly who are the troublemakers.. Those who get drunk and lip off other customers, start fights, puke on the floor, etc..

So the owners hire doormen, this bar is getting popular and there needs to be control now.. The owners never wanted or imagined they'd have to waste money on stupid doormen, but hey people who visit the bar seem to care less about the bar and its past history.

Now a few of the bar's regulars are mad because the owners have made it difficult for some to enjoy themselves, they used to feel this place was their own, that they could do anything they wanted.. What they seem to not understand is that no one is telling them to leave or not enjoy the place..

They are just telling them that the bar is not just for them, that others should be able to enjoy it as well.

Can't we all find our own corner of the bar to enjoy it? Can't we all show basic respect for those who all share this kick ass bar?

Why does it have to be us vs them? That shit is all in your head.

Anyways, I ramble. Thats how I see this place anyhow..

Cause don't forget myself, Ythan, Captain Jack, Doob, Moe, etc... We all know what this place used to be like, and now all of us have the same attitude of 'jeessus what the fuck happened to OTD, its a shithole'... I know these guys pretty well and they are all GOOD people who care a lot about this crazy place.. Yet good people like that think this forum is a shithole, some of us think its worse than others.. But the fact remains its a clique mentallity that needs to go for everyone to get what they want out of this forum..

Ps.. Don't argue about the 'pub/chill out' forum, cause it should never have been made to begin with (my fault).. Nobody should be pushed out of your clique, you need to learn how to share it with others, no more ganging up (DBK), etc...

If you don't like someone, don't reply to their thread, don't jump into threads and ruin it with your own selfish need to be noticed or whatever...

Its so simple that I can't believe more of you don't see the mentallity going on here...

The guy who created this place is sickened by this forum, what the hell does that tell you?!?

Thank you for the compliment Thor /me blushes

It's only cause I love this site and the people here so dam much and you guys gave me the chance to help.

That's right, didn't we call it "The Chill Out Room" before it was the pub?

Anyway, thanks for bringing back those memories and letting us know just how big we have become.

Long live the Shroomery! :heart:

Its been an interesting ride, seeing all the changes the Shroomery has made over the years. There was just a handful of forums and a couple thousand members when I joined. You could leave for days and only have a couple pages of posts to catch up on...in all forums combined!

There were times in the Shroomerys past that I started to dislike coming here. Then the mods/admins would step in and shake things up and it would get fun again. I think the evolution of the Pub was the best thing to happen. I always struggled in OTD. I'm just too laid back and mellow. I never understood the need people have to crap on every post you make. The Pub is definately my home here now.

I like the name "The Chill Out Room." Hey....Hey mister.....pipe down there......do you need a time out? Are you gonna have to go to The Chill Out Room for a little while? If I ever get a house of my own I'm gonna designate the living room as The Chill Out Room and stick a big sign over the entranceway.

You two are totally totally going off topic from this thread, having a convo between two users that has nothing to do with the topic.

Normally I wouldn't care but I spent like 30 minutes making this thread as I had to find those stats, re-arrange them, and then spend 15 mins with vamp to find an old thread in the archives as my username didnt work for some weird reason.

But no, don't let me stop your little chat.

I was friends with a kid named jesus once.  He kinda stunk like mexico, and sold crappy brick weed.  But he ate the lsd so it was all good.

he would definately like OTD more then the pub.  Beacuse OTD is NUMERO UNO!

While there may be some stress around, i have to say, there's also a uniquely large amount of well-wishers and warm welcomes. being newer to The Shroomery, i don't know the past like many of you here, but i consider myself fairly perceptive.

i'm also more likely to be found in The Pub than anywhere else. it has a very warm and friendly vibe. as a matter of fact, i was wondering how old The Shroomery is. a quick "whois.com" look-up and it returns that it was registered in '99. my question is.. will thee be a 10th anniversary gathering? and how many people would like to see it take place in Amsterdam where we could legally do shrroms and pot and hang out?

one last note: i love this place!  :bow:

> as a matter of fact, i was wondering how old The Shroomery is

To my knowledge, the Shroomery was founded by Ythan in 1997 and was generously hosted by the Lycaeum.  It was then moved to its own domain in 1999. :sun:

Thanks Vampy for your help, I found that old thread.

Here's the Pub analogy I spouted to OTDer back in the day..

Shroomery analogy - The bar
#1292059 - 02/08/03 06:08 PM
 

Ok, here's how I see this place, using an analogy we can all relate to let me explain how I feel.

Shroomery Bar, on 1st street. Next to the 24hr adult video store.

Imagine if you will that OTD is a bar, and that this bar is a typical Pub with one long bar and a few bartenders behind it.. There is the pool room area, people shooting stick.. There is the darker seating area where people are chatting away.. There is the game room where a few video games are and its pretty well light.

Imagine if you will if this was a bar that meant many different things to many different people. There is the crowd who walks in and can't stand the bright light and noise of the game room; and of course they can't stand the video games since they find it too childish.. This crowd sits down in the dark and find a happy place to chat with friends and away from the noise.

The next group comes into the bar and finds the dark area where people are 'chatting' to be stupidly boring and the video games not fun so they goto play pool in the bright light of the pool room. This group has lots of energy and likes to make lots of noise, they look over at the darker area and wonder how people can come in here wasting time just chatting and drinking..

The next group walks into the bar and wants to play vids! Hey video games are fun (Golden Tee rulez!).. They don't feel like sitting down chatting, they think the game room losers are idiots since they play pool and try to pretend they are some hot shits..

The bartenders (think who the bartenders are... mods) look at the pub and see every group is having fun doing their own thing.. Nobody is bothering anyone, and everyone gets what they want out of this popular bar. However the bartenders know very well that its early and once everyone has been drinking that the different groups end up lipping each other off or bothering each other.

In fact sometimes this bar is outright scary for new people cause when someone new to this place walks in and wants to have a drink the locals in the pub don't make them feel welcome.. In fact some of them outright gang up on new people to make the want to leave.

After a while the bar starts to become dominated by one group, and the other groups feel less and less welcome.. Until finally one group has basically the bar to themselves and the other 2 groups have given up on the place.

The owners (admins) feel that its gotten way out of hand and that this bar should be a place for everyone to enjoy.. So they say to the bartenders, hey tell us honestly who are the troublemakers.. Those who get drunk and lip off other customers, start fights, puke on the floor, etc..

So the owners hire doormen, this bar is getting popular and there needs to be control now.. The owners never wanted or imagined they'd have to waste money on stupid doormen, but hey people who visit the bar seem to care less about the bar and its past history.

Now a few of the bar's regulars are mad because the owners have made it difficult for some to enjoy themselves, they used to feel this place was their own, that they could do anything they wanted.. What they seem to not understand is that no one is telling them to leave or not enjoy the place..

They are just telling them that the bar is not just for them, that others should be able to enjoy it as well.

Can't we all find our own corner of the bar to enjoy it? Can't we all show basic respect for those who all share this kick ass bar?

Why does it have to be us vs them? That shit is all in your head.

Anyways, I ramble. Thats how I see this place anyhow..

Cause don't forget myself, Ythan, Captain Jack, Doob, Moe, etc... We all know what this place used to be like, and now all of us have the same attitude of 'jeessus what the fuck happened to OTD, its a shithole'... I know these guys pretty well and they are all GOOD people who care a lot about this crazy place.. Yet good people like that think this forum is a shithole, some of us think its worse than others.. But the fact remains its a clique mentallity that needs to go for everyone to get what they want out of this forum..

Ps.. Don't argue about the 'pub/chill out' forum, cause it should never have been made to begin with (my fault).. Nobody should be pushed out of your clique, you need to learn how to share it with others, no more ganging up (DBK), etc...

If you don't like someone, don't reply to their thread, don't jump into threads and ruin it with your own selfish need to be noticed or whatever...

Its so simple that I can't believe more of you don't see the mentallity going on here...

The guy who created this place is sickened by this forum, what the hell does that tell you?!?




I remember that post so well Thor!

God how this place has evolved from a few of us posting Lyrics to the third most popular forum! :heart:

The Pub is one of the best things that ever happened to me....Cheers! :smile:

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.
