OK, well since me and 3D took over we've been making moves to ensure the future of this website. We've added advertisements from our friends who run businesses involved with our hobby.
Well sadly I have to announce this, as of today September 30th, 2001 the Shroomery faces its biggest challenge yet.
I have to come up with $1,000 US dollars, if not this website will shut down. I've been funding this website out of my own pocket for a while now, and when Aphex gave me control of this website he obviously knew that the future of this website was all about getting $$$ to continue this unique community.
I've literally been paying money that I don't have, and all because I figured that eventually things would turn around and I would get enough monthly income to support this website.
If you honestly want this community to continue I urge you to donate to our cause, paypal accepts any donations VIA firstname.lastname@example.org
I hate more than anything to ask for help, I've always felt that no matter the situation I could work it out on my own, but today I face a seriously tough situation. I've litterally put my ass on the line with my Visa card, and now I have either 2 choices..... Sell my personal belongings to pay the ever increasing bill, or shut down the shroomery and survive.....
I'm sorry but even with my love for this community I must choose my own life over all yours, and its one of the toughest days of my life financially.
If you want the shroomery to live, please give generously to the Shroomery at the www.paypal.com ...... If not, please say your farewells to this community, our time is short.
No matter what happens I have to say this, I've learned to love a community of people so varied and unique that I don't think in a life without the shroomery I would have had the oppertunity to experience so much, I've met some amazing people and gotten a chance to meet so many of you either in person or via the net........
I hope things continue, if not I hope we can all continue somewhere else.... the Forest Floor which is run by Eddie is a great community and if we don't find a future here we can all find ourselves at www.theforestfloor.com
To all of us, please accept my personal apology, I feel that I've let you all down. I took this job hoping beyond all to make this place safe and secure. I realize now that is more of a difficult task than I imagined.
When the Shroomery goes down, we will save all our info, one day in the future we will get the help we need and one day we will rise again!
My thanks to all you moderators and all of you who have done so much to bring the power of magic mushrooms to the world.
One day we will realize how important the magic mushroom is to us all.
My thanks for our time together, its been an experience I won't ever forget!
this brings me totally from the concept, especially now after I started to have
more contact... I didn't know that the funding of "The Shroomery" was a
problem. I'm surprised because it isn't a long ago, you expanded the site, which
should have also costed some money.
I think before the comunity can help the Shroomery, and therefore help you, you
should present on black and white the monetary situation (just saying you need
1000 USD is too vaguely). I mean that you should write how much money you spend
for what and how much you get from sponsors, etc. I think this is important
because I'm sure the comunity could get 1000 USD toghether to save the Shroomery
this time, but to ensure the funding for a long time is essential and basic. I
would donate some money for the salvation, but only if there is a plan of
sanation in sight, i.e. a method to have regularly enough money, because who
want's to donate money and have the same situation the next month?
I have some ideas about the funding, but I haven't concretized them, because I
need more info about the numbers...
I don't think that closing the Shroomery and sending everyone to
www.theforestfloor.com will solve anything, because this site will also get
problems. I think the fundamental problem is that the Shroomery is a relative
big site, i.e. with many visitors, about a theme with a relative small comercial
interest or promotional value (not many take the risk of cultivating something
that is illegal in many countries). Therefore there aren't many sponsors which
would pay. One of the antipodes of the Shroomery would be a free porno site,
having a lot of promotional value.
Just some ideas,
