None or you give a shit about this board
    #322741 - 05/21/01 08:55 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

All of you who use this board are constently saying how we need to do this for the board or that for the board or If you do this on the board or that on the board it's going to get shut down. If you truly care about the board then read on. The post about Ryche, McMan, Captain Max, etc... has been viewed by almost all of us and we have relished in the negativity, and fed into it as well. (myself included) But the one thing that will cause this board to be removed in the fastest way possible is being ignored. Ryches alleged "sock puppet" vendors sending spores to cali will not get this board shut down. As fast as pissed of church going dinner at 5 every night parents who's kid is caught gaining truthfull knowledge (at least in our eyes) about mushrooms .If you people truly want this board to remain open fix the major problem 1st.

When you first sign up to get a screen name it says are you at least 13 Yes No?? you might want to change that to 18 (legal adult in the U.S.) and maybe add something around there that says if you get a screen name and post anything that tells us you are under 18 you will be banned there is a kid on tonight that practically gave out his home address what school etc... the quickest way to cause problems for this board will be a parent who blames the shroomery for there kids fuck ups and then after further investigating they will see that there child admitted to everyone that he was still in school and not 18 and you allowed him to be a part of our evil mushroom cult. and that will be it so everyone who is interested in this board staying open better look into this
I DO NOT have any problems with a minor gaining factual knowledge (and what better place to do it) of what the life has to offer in this "field" of mush. culture. PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF US WHO ENJOY THIS BOARD FIX THIS MINOR PROBLEM
NOW I hope that got your attention. I am not trying to say bad shit about anyone. I personally enjoy most everyone here but we will lose this board,our wired friendships and someone to talk to about what we may have done wrong or brag about what we have done right if we do not address this issue right now.
THANK YOU


" All vendors I support you no matter what if it was not for you none of us would be doing what we are doing and enjoying it.

Wow, the impatience is sometimes ridiculous here... Ok first of all we have not only considered the age thing, we are planning on adding a entry page which asks for the age verification.. Also when new members sign up we will also ask that they are 18 or over to join this community.

What I am seeing lately is this pushyness and people not asking or suggesting but 'Telling' us what to do... And the fact remains this website has been around for many years without having any problems so far... We will do this change, it just takes some time.. We volunteer our time and believe me there is a lot on our plates right now....

What is irriting the most is nobody has any patience, nobody seems to understand that we are doing our best and we are listening... Instead its constant taunts, threats, insults, claiming we aren't doing our jobs.... Please show some little amount of respect... Before we took over there was little done through Aphex because he was a very busy individual... Now we take over and work hard on changes and everybody complains?!? I don't get it, should we change it back to the way it was....

You people really don't make our jobs any easier, try giving us some respect and your patience....

that's all you had to say it's been post by at least three members in the past 3-4 weeks and no one has answered or said anything about it impatient I am especially because I enjoy this board and when I se 14 year olds on here saying there 14 that will attract much uneeded attention but thanks for updating us all hope you are able to get it done soon--if you do need some financial donations let me know I will help out in that way also

Sorry dimitri, didn't mean to come off so angry... I know you are not being rude, just that last few days has been tiresome with all the bickering so I'm a little more edgy lately.... But its all good, we'll get the age thing taken care of.....

Hi Thor,

Just a thought or two about this site. I feel that you should have the profile box be filled out by all with all of the information it asks for. Except the ICQ or MICR service numbers since many do not have it.

When joinging other forums, especially public forums on the web it will not accept the registration if the person leaves a blank box.

I sugget that you make people fill in the boxesin the profile such as hobbies, state location, and other things pertinent to someone wanting to be part of this site rather than posting nothing in those boxes and then trolling us all. you do not have to put the email address if an individual does not want his email known, and this is cool since we have private messages.

So you should require all members to fill out the other boxes at the profile to belong.

Occupation, Hobbies, Geographic Locations and Bio.

If those are filled out it gives another member an (hopefully) honest image of the member and his interests in the site and all of us a little more security of who is posting rather than some jerk fucking with our minds.

Remember we are a site which is here to help stop the spread of dangerous misinformation and even people joking here by posting bs posts about shrooms is deifinatlely not helping to stop the spread of misinformation but is spreading it as it is posted.

I can understand why someone might be paranoid but there is no need if you are an honest person seeking truthful information from this site.

I know when I have joined straight forums they ask many questions and if you do not fill out all of the boxes than they won't accept your membership[.

I am sure you could fix the profile box to do the same.

This way all of the members are gaurenteed that what is posted here is helpful rather than BS..

I notice that in most, if not all of the bs posts, when I look up the poser, there is no information in their profiles which tells us something about them. This tells me they are BSers.

Anyway, just a suggestion on a way to control the trolls and give us all a little feeling of who everyone is.

Have a shroomy day and may all of your days be shroomy.

I am releived that the age issue is being addressed. My one question is about age verification. How will this be accomplished?

I don't agree with the mandatory profile stuff. Anominity is very important to some members of this site and there is really no gain in making the profile boxes a requisite for registering. If people are going to bullshit on the boards, what is to stop them from bullshitting in their profile? If this place has taught me one thing about trolls it's that time is something they have plenty of and the few seconds it takes to make up a lie about their geographic location isn't going to deter anything.

Very good point and with the age verification system they usualy require a credit card which a lot of people do not have (I wish I didn't) but none the less there must be a different way If not. Then a lot of people will be screwed

We will post a disclaimer like the ones found in adult sites.. "By clicking here you verify that you are 18 yrs or older" etc....

That may change somewhat, but so far its the idea we are running with....

Hint Hint... Don't tell us.... For any members under 18, please don't mention it, I need to of course say that you should have an adult accompany you while you surf the website, or a handwritten note from your mom would suffice :wink:

I dunno taz, sometimes you can just spot 'em, especially in other drugs, lol.

Mandatory profiles I'm not sure about john, I don't know about anyone else but I get pretty anxious sometimes thinking about the near 800 or so posts I've made, the things I've said. I've never done anything blatantly stupid like "Hey, I lvie in xxxx, anyone else from here wanna smoke a bowl?" I have, however, given out little bits of information about me, my friends, my family, and my location. I take every precaution but I still worry sometimes.

A simple disclaimer seems to work pretty well on the other adult oriented sites, you don't hear about too many porn sites being busted for that. I think the shroomery would lose a whole lot of people if it moved to something more intrusive.

And Thor, you are doing fantastic work. That includes 3DSHROOM and all the other mods as well. Don't let the haters wreck your game ;)>
