forums that aren't open to me
    #3460348 - 12/07/04 05:18 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I just found out that the Other Drugs Discussion forum can now only be accessed if you have 40 posts under your belt. And on different computers I've been able to access forums that I can't get on mine, even when no one is logged in. Can somebody please list all the forums on the shroomery so I know which ones I'm missing out on, and tell me how to get access to all the forums? Thanks.

Time and posts will give you access. If you can't see the forum, it doesn't officially exist until you can. :smile: Understand? This is a fairly recent change in the rules.

It shouldn't take much more than a month and 40 posts to unlock any forums, until then, please post normally... you will get access in time.

Manipulation of the unlocking system, by whoring posts will get you banned. 1.25 posts a day for a month is all you need.

Good luck.

Specifics?  This shouldn't be happening, so please provide more details on which forums they are, if you can.

We are also in the process of reviewing time/post constraints on various forums so things may keep changing over the next month or twenty years :grin:

If you enjoy the community though, and continue to participate, you have to do nothing else but keep on keepin' on to gain access to some of our more restricted forums.

Welcome! :sun:

im a little confused about this myself. I dont belive (although i never looked) that i have ever seen the other drug forum. The real bummer for me is that i did visit the grow log forum at least twice a day as i am in the middle of my own grow. I used the forum to double check what i was doing and to see if i missed a step. The forum was also a great insperation to me. It is sadly missed. Can a mod please tell me how much longer my wait is to view this forum?

I just noticed that change and found it quite annoying. How does having 40 posts qualify someone to read ODD? And aren't newbies the ones that need information the most?

I used to read ODD and other forums every few weeks for research, curiosity or just entertainment, but didn't post because I wouldn't have the time to follow the discussion and don't have much experience to share on most subjects...

Anyway, I just tought I should point out my dissatisfaction (and get another post for that), I'm not trying to fight.

Hmm.. perhaps the restrictions would work better if they were implemented in an either/or fashion. That is to say, beef up the time limit a bit so that (hypothetically) ODD would be restricted as follows:

To Users with < 40 posts || (or) Users who have been here > 90 days. That way, lurkers who don't like to post will still be able to check out the more exclusive forums.

Yes but look at Blador above. He's been here for nearly two years now and still doesn't have access because he simply doesn't often post. Yet it seems he has a definite interest in this community. I think making the conditional an 'OR' statement, while increasing the time period from 15 to 90 days would help solve this admittedly rare (but annoying, for people like Blador) problem.

The OR statement would render the time requirement useless.

Actually, no.
Nobody should register here for the sake of reading the ODD. You should register if you are interested in mushrooms.
That's one of the reasons why those access restrictions were put in place.

Not in Blador's case :wink:
I can see the argument go both ways - I guess it would be nice if there was some admin function that would allow us to override the restrictions on certain users (like Blador, who has been here 2 years but had his access to those forums taken away).

I've been registered since Sept. 2nd and I have 40 posts, but the marketplace and other drugs forum is not open to me. When I made my 40th post they became available and then the next time I logged on they were gone again.

I often visited the ODD forum quite regularly but rarely posted. I did register to first learn about mushrooms but my curiosity soon grew to other drugs. I believe this occurs with many others as well. It was quite an annoyance to learn that I will not be able to view the ODD forum again until I reach 40 posts. Surely there must be a better slution to this.

I don't see how all that much good can come from restrictions. This lesson can be learned by simply observing the world.

Yeah, you have your reasons I know. Make sure people join for the mushrooms.

Seems to be too trivial a method to try to keep the population purified. I mean, if someone wants to be a member here for some other reason than mushrooms (like to post in OTD, for example), doesn't it stand to reason that such a person would simply ride out whatever time limit there is and then join anyway?

There is no automated solution to replace keen moderation and administration. Keep up the good work! :thumbup:
