Anyone notice the steady decline in the quality and inteligence of the posts around here?
    #3369137 - 11/16/04 03:58 PM (12 years, 22 days ago)

The title speaks for itself, for example I was reading a thread in General questions, and I forgot I was in the shroomery, same deal with ODD. Don't get me started about the pub, it just makes me sad how it seems the shroomery is cahnging, and not for the better :frown:.

I haven't been here long, but i do see how the shroomery could be so much better with less stupid posts. There are so many n00bs signing up every day, even if they don't plan to stay. Shroom on and don't worry about it, you'll always have a place to kick it!

I've noticed it too, but it always seems to level out again. Seems like lots of the bullshit from otd's slipping out onto the other forums. It really pesters me sometimes.

I have noticed this too gdman and it sucks :frown:

I guess the shroomery is over populated. back in the day (wow I sound old :smirk:) you could actually keep track of posts.

I noticed the Pub has the worst decline :thumbdown:
I moderate GQ and sometimes I just thing WTF how can people ask such things over and over again?


here's a hug to make you feel better :hug:
let's improve the shroomery!

I'm a noob (in terms of actively posting) here, but don't think I've caused too much fuss and I am here to stay and learn :smile:

Been reading this site and forum for about a year now since I found out shrooms were actually legal here!!

I understand that it's way overpopulated, is there any way to start controlling this? People do need correct information, and this place has less misinformation than any other boards i've been on. I feel like dead weight now, because i'm new, but i also think you guys are kickass and that i belong here :smile:

same deal with ODD




Used to be my favorite forum :frown:

But I definitely don't want it fully moderated again. I'm sure a majority of members/mods/admins don't either, but sometimes I don't even bother clicking threads anymore. :blah:

The shroomery is in constant flux, and constant growth.. Its a completely different animal that it was when i joined.. you'll just have to get used to it as you go along. Theres always gonna be the "good ol days".. it gets bigger and bigger, and less personal, but its the nature of the beast.

A forum for the shroomery 'elite' or old timers or whatever you want to label yourselves could solve this problem... then you could go whine about the newbies there. :razz:

at this point i think we can be relatively certain seperation exists as a fallacy of finite perception, and the only barrier to infinite creativity is a preimposed notion of certainty and artificial conditioning. nothing is without origin

Isn't more people learning about using mushrooms responsibly a good thing?  Yeah, the post quality might be a bit lower right now, but I look at it as a good opportunity to set an example for the new guys.  We were all newbie's once.  :smile:

The best thing we can do is be receptive and welcoming to the new guys, so that they respond to others here the same way.
