What's with the "secret" forums?
    #3780803 - 02/14/05 11:18 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I've gotta ask.. so far I've seen the "Porn", "Production", and "Hiking" forum linked on the front page, and every time I follow the link I get Access Denied, we cannot proceed.

What's the deal? Is there a postcount minimum or something, or am I just high and missing it?

Must be something in the water then.  :wink:  :tongue:


I figured it was a supporter thing just after posting.  Ah well.  I do love the shroomery, but I also enjoy paying rent on time.  :mushroom2:

I don't understand this. I've seen posts from people saying that the supporters are "elitist" or "cliquey". I personally haven't seen ANY posts where a supporter claimed to better than a non-supporting user. And who cares about the exclusive forums? I've never posted in them because that's not what I became a supporter for. I just wanted to give back to those who make this website possible. How is that elitist?

Actually, we DO have that "Slag on the Non-Supporters" subforum of AG.  Man, that forum SLAYS me.  Really good stuff.  Only the cool kids get stars on their bellies.  :tongue:

that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Just cause someone is willing to throw down money they automatically get better treatment?  What about someone who is financially in trouble, but contributes much knowledge to the community?

bad move, shroomery :thumbdown:

No one is getting better treatment, so just calm down. Yes, there are incentives, they are giving money. If you are willing to throw down money, you should get a little something in return. A porn/anything goes/hiking forum, they are nice, but no big deal.

You do not need these extra forums what-so-ever. They are just chill out kind of forums, the non-supporter forums are great. Hell, the garden and ODD is enough. The forums that make the Shroomery such a great place are the ones that EVERYONE can get into, the supporter forums are a little something extra on the side.

Calm down girl....  so far, except for the scat and porn, everything has been pretty much double posted.  You are not missing a thing.  Except for the scat and porn of course :wink:

It's premium membership.  You get basic membership for free, but if you're willing to fork over a measly $5 a month, you can get these extra benefits.  Well worth it, IMO.  Besides, some people contribute both knowledge AND money to the community.

Whoa now, y'all are making me sound more upset than I am!!!  I'm calm, so you calm down!! :lol:

anyways, I was just thinking out loud that maybe giving donations for the sake of donations is enough, and there shouldnt be a rift created in the membership over monetary things..... I just think if I were Admin I might do things differently... meh, so it goes.

    A lot of it came from the fact that people who were paying cash thought that, as a paying supporter, they ought to have a little poo swingers' club to post anything they wanted to.  Sort of a share with your friends similar interests forum that was not restricted by the whims or standards of a moderator or administrator.  Like just today, hanky posted this series of photos of this woman sitting on a bench, and a guy with his head in what was essentially a litter box, but there was space made for his neck so his head was in the box.  So his head's under this lady's butt, and she's sitting down.  Then this OTHER lady (they're all naked except the 3rd woman who's in panties) comes and kneels down next to the woman's butt and sticks this enema/air puffer thing up the sitting woman's butt.  Then in the next picture all this liquid poop is spilling all over the guy's face as he's lying down right beneath the woman's butt.  And all this poop goes over his face and collects in the little bin his head is in. 
    I mean, you can argue all you want that you should have access to this kind of freedom of speech/posting/information sharing without paying, but then we'd have ALL sorts of problems with noobs and random people just waltzing in and abusing the poo priviledge.  It's really for the shroomery's own good.  There's a code of conduct in AG that is essentially, "post nothing that would endanger the shroomery."  So we try to live by that.  :sun:

I was trying to be informative and convey the essence of AG so Psily wouldn't feel left out or disenfranchised.  Glad you liked it.  :cool:
