I saw this done at another message board, I thought it would be a disaster but it worked..

Problem is who decides, how is it decided who joins, etc...

the idea of a serious otd makes me want to masturbate a dog.

otd = chaos = junkpile = place where you get can good advice and porn pictures on the exact same webpage

and if there was a "special members forum" where moderators got to invite people i'd spend a day going through the user list and inviting every single person.

I cant help but imangine a forum where, sooner or later, almost the entire 10,000 members get invited into.

' only way it can work is with a VOTE by the members here as to what a "dedicated member" is.

Just for shits-n-giggles, here is a plan that I would like to "run up the flag pole" - The mods could set up a vote that only users that have been here "so long"* and have "so many posts"* would be allowed to vote in. Of these members a thread could be started to debate the requriments of what a "dedicated member" would be for that forum.

(now I shall "duck and cover") hehe



* - (these limits could be set by the mods)

yeah it worx at that other place, but I fell kinda elitist being a part of something others are not....
It kind of undercuts the philosophy of a place like this. You already have IRC #shroomery for elitists; you ever watch a newbie come in there and ask a question? jesus.......it's a massacre.

already having circumvented a lot of the founder's philosophies though, why not go ahead and do it?

the only reason i like the idea is so that i would feel special.. (that is, of course, if i met the requirements to get in) otherwise otd has everything it needs to keep me occupied...

It's weird in how much keeping a message forum active is like running a business.... I mean - they both share a lot in common. (hehe- I didnt mean for that to sound as if I was a mod...- I used to run a BBS many years ago)

I don't like this idea. I think it's a form of favouritism. I see a lot of Shroomerite eliteism and it's not really cool. Just because you have been a member longer then some other people does not qualify you as more educated and respected. The mushroom world extends far beyond the internet.

Sure there are newbies that ask silly questions sometimes, but isn't that what The Shroomery is for? To learn, to help others in their quest for the fungus? The moderators have ther own forum because it serves a purpose. To discuss the goings on of the board, to help each other out on judgement calls and make sure that we are all working as a team.

Having a private board for all the 'cool' members isn't a good idea.

In reply to:


oh yea only BIG BAD MODERATORS who GET CHOSEN because they ARE COOL (favourtism) get to discuss the goins of the board?



I'm not going to speak for Thor or 3D, but I don't really think that moderators get chosen because they are 'cool'. I think that it would probably have a lot more to do with temperment and responsibility factors. Not every moderator is a gem, but I'm pretty sure that they weren't chosen because of how 'cool' they are.

If you would like to discuss the goings on of anything that is happening on the board, then you are more then welcome to discuss anything that is on your mind in the Suggestion Forum.

And as for the newbies...just be patient with them. You were a newbie once too, remember? I realize that some people are stupidly obnoxious, but you just gotta deal with that sometimes, y'know?

Going back to the original topic, I really don't see how a 'Members' forum could in any way be beneficial to the purpose of The Shroomery.

I have to agree. I just don't like the idea, for a number of reasons. Most of all, preclusion just isn't a nice thing.
