Oh, damn. I just read this and it pissed me off. HEY FUCK YOU!@!!! If you don't want to answer then don't. Half the fun of this website is socialization of people that have something in common. Or people wanting to learn. Yea, once you get used to the board it is somewhat easy to get around but some people like the interaction. Not just using the search engine.

Hey if you know so much go to a library and stroke yourself while you read a book about this crap. There you won't have people bothering you. I am not sure how long you have been on the board but for that matter I don't even care.

It pisses me off that so many people hear take that avenue of vision. I found this place and was happy as hell. I could chill and read some of the other peoples experience's on what they were doing and gain some insight and help newbies just like some people helped me.

If your too fucking high and mighty to help go to the advanced section and waddle in you shitpool of glorified intelligence.

To everyone else, I know this is a rough reaction but hey he felt like venting. So I just vented right back.

I think all newbies should be welcomed not shunned. In time they will figure this website out. Give them a break.

hey like every one else i was once a newbie i know what it is like to have a lot of questions


im always willing to help people out in fact i like helping newbies shrooms are fun to grow and i figure everyone sould have a good chance at doing it

when i found this board i was happy as shit i had been wanting to grow and didn't know how, this place helped me learn

but it just pisses me off when people ask questions that could of easly been answered if they just took the time to read some of the tek's in the grow/find section like i had to do

alot of these people just don't want to read and figure it will be easier to post and have someone answer for them then reading a tek

im not trying to be an asshole (like i said iv'e had plenty of questions) but not something i could of read on my own

I think there should be a board where newbies can post. That search function is pretty powerful but it is very unreliable and a slow, and i even have a cable modem. When i first start growing i tried to search but almost never found good information. Maybe yall should actually try and use it and see how useless it can be a lot of the time. But that still doesnt mean newbies should be posting questions on boards where important information is being ignored.

My two cents:

I think I posted two or three very newby questions before I even discovered the search function. So I don't blame them so much. :smile: But improvements can certainly be made.
I'd like to see two things happen:
1) When you click "Community", above the Message Boards option should be a Search Message Boards option, where the cultivation/hunting topics have direct links to their search function.
2) When someone posts in a cultivation/hunting topic, they are advised to search first (and given a link) and also advised to be very descriptive in their topic title.
3) When people are getting off the name of the topic, they should start new threads.

Okay these seem like Good Things to me as 1)+2) would promote searching before asking, 2) would make later searches easier, and 3) would make searches more useful.

Nice Job people...glad to see your all comeing together and showing us NEWBIES how to have an attitude. I remember seeing a link here called the " ADVANCED CULTIVATION", which makes me think that if some of you EXPERTS out there are complaining about us using this link to much... then seems to me this would be a good place for you guys to go. I have used the search eng., and let me be the first to say there isn't one TEK out there thats complete, for a NEWBIE to follow and fully understand. I do not consider myself to be a total idiot. I have read most of these TEKS that are in use, and they don't cover half as many ?'s some of these people need to know. I mean really....think about it. Were starting a new hobbie in FUNGUS, not all of us have a collage education in this stuff...sorry to disapoint you ! If it weren't for the help that I get from a few people, i would be kinda lost. So if I were you, I wouldn't bitch...We all have to start from somewhere, and I thought thats what this place was for. Tell me if i'm wrong? Perhaps some of you guys that have alittle more brains then the rest of us, can start a new web site. Just a thought. thx

Nightcap..
People arent telling newbies that they cant post simple Q's....

What they are telling them is that maybe they should _AT LEAST_ look in the Grow/Find section _BEFORE_ they start asking away simple Q's that would be VERY easy to find by either navigating in the grow section or by searching the messageboards......
As said...they would get the information they want _FASTER_ then sitting here waiting for an answer....
I see _ALOT_ of Q's being asked overandoverandover again ....and _ALOT_ of these questions could have been answered by just getting into the Grow section....

They are LAZY....!!!

I do agree though with shroom77, that the interaction between newbies/experienced growers is good...
But once again --- questions like : "How do i grow shrooms?" and such are just plain STUPID...!!!
People asking these kinds of Q's havent even looked in the grow section...

PERIOD..!!

Hmmmmm, this is a touchy subject but sooner or later it had to come out.

From my personal experience, I learned how to grow way before I even knew of the Shroomery. So I do like to help people who are just starting out. I know its tough to find answers to certain questions. If I can help someone out, I'll do it

But on the other hand. I'm noticing that there are ALOT of people who are simply lazy!!! I mean, most of the questions that newbies ask, the answers can be found in the "Grow/Find" section. OR (this is the sad part) all they have to do is look back thru the posts a week or two.

It's NOT HARD!!!! Look back 10-14 days and I can almost put money down that their question will be in the heap of them all.

I Love the Shroomery. I visit it alot and it's a very informative site. But, at the same time, I can see how experienced growers can get weary of it and not want to come back due to lazy newbies.

I have absolutely no gripes with newbies, but I do have a problem with people who are too lazy to do their own homework.

I've said my peace;-)

I think newbies don't realize there is a grow/find section to help them out, and maybe they don't know there is a search function, or don't think of using it. I think they should be told to search, but not harshly. And, if you're feeling helpful, you could even give them the link to the grow section and techniques that are good for a newbie. I don't think they do it on purpose, at least I hope not.

I posted before on this topic

and it seems to me that most people have good questions

It's just that newbies need to do there homework. I had a lot of questions in the begining that were answerd in 2 minutes of looking

I say there should be a link for newbies at the top of the page to the grow/find and search sections.

Search Function..........GOOD!

I do get so sick of post after post of "Senior Members" (itself somewhat of a misnomer)tellin' it to the newbies. The last thing anyone in here needs is a Shroomery mother to watch over them. It's a lot like watching TV, folks. If you don't like the show you can always shut it off. If you don't want to read a newbie topic then you don't have to. If you don't want to help a newbie, don't. Why discourage anyone from asking "dumb" questions. I mean when you get right down to it, why doesn't everybody stop posting and just read past posts. The answers are bound to be in there. The point is, people ask questions, to hear what YOU think. Why pass up the oportunity to tell them.

Encouragement to NOT post ANY question..........BAD!

I also managed to scrape together a small crappy flush before finding the shroomery. I put newspaper on the sides of my cooler, thinking that would help humidity--then searched a bit, found this site, delved into the find/grow and came across many great teks. Truth, it was at a time when I was a little paranoid to post anything. Anyway, here's my suggestion to make this site more 'newbie-friendly'.
The FIND/GROW section has a lot of information, sectioned into 'Mr X's Grow Tek', 'Mrs. Y's Grow Tek', etc. If you put on a 'newbie hat' and go into the grow section, it's HUGE! Almost daunting. Try the search engine with 'humidification'. For me, it's all interesting and I can still read through them all with great interest. It would be easier and quicker for the new person to see a GROW section [NEWBIE section?] divided into the different stages; A button for SUBSTRATE. One for STERILIZATION. CASING. HUMIDIFICATION TEK'S. Each of these could lead into various beginner techniques, graded difficulty?, FAQ's, frequent pitfalls, PICTURES!!!!. . .I think we all know the common problems for the beginning cultivator based on the posts!
And I agree with Lana; It's fun to answer questions and help people out. But the fun wears out really fast when you get the feeling you are not helping someone genuinely interested in investing time and energy, just a quick answer to fast results.
It's not easy, was never meant to be, and if it was--most of us wouldn't be here.

I myself learned how to grow shrooms solely from the grow section in the shroomery (and a swedish version of the MMGG) long before i even found the message board...
I didnt have any problems finding the information many are asking about...
I too agree that people should be able to post anything..
But as said ITS FOR THERE OWN GOOD - they recieve the answeres MUCH faster....
If they have searched and havent found the information they wanted they should ask any question, however stupid the Q would sound....
I do believe that this is the case in some cases..(that they have tried but havent found it - or didnt understand the information they found)..
BUT - in the other cases....where people havent even looked in the grow section then they are just plain LAZY...
Im sorry posting about what people should/shouldnt post but i think it is for there own convinience.....

I have no problem with newbies posting whatsoever. I was once a newbie too.

But when I came to this board over two years ago, there was a lot less of the repetitive newbie posts. I understand there will be a certain increase in that as more people join the Shroomery community, and I like the idea that we all have a place to convene, young and old, experienced and inexperienced, grower and non-grower.

But, as Ryche put so well, there are a lot of really good, innovative, descriptive, helpful, and generally informative posts on the boards that get lost in the flotsam and jetsam of truly unnecessary newbie and/or off-topic posts. Sometimes I have to load several pages to get to the good stuff, which is pushed to the bottom as people reply to threads that need a single one-line answer or url pointing to a previous thread.

Once again, don't get me wrong. I try to help where I can. But when I know for a verified fact that there are literally dozens of previous posts that address an issue, it bugs me to see someone firing off a poorly-thought-out new thread and simply clogging up space and adding entropy to the boards.

Pretty soon I hope to have a pretty *comprehensive newbie FAQ* ready to contribute, with links to particularly helpful threads and some pretty detailed info on specific topics, as well as a good overview of different substrates and hardware teks. So I'm definitely aware that there are a lot of new growers out there that need some help finding the right information, and I'm more than willing to help in that effort. And if it saves some redundant posts, then I'll have accomplished at least part of the purpose I want that document to serve.

Amen to the idea to add a bigger search engine link and to make sure the search engine is up and running well. And amen to the new 'Pearls of Growing Wisdom' section. I think it would be a great boon to add a disclaimer that stands out a bit at the top of each forum, with a prominent link to the search engine, and some basic guidelines/ideas on what sorts of questions could be most easily answered by using it.

I am relatively experienced, and have spent untold hours perusing all aspects of the Shroomery, particularly the boards, and they are invaluable tools for every stripe of cultivator, from the guy that just realizeed that you could conceivably grow psychedelics yourself to someone like Workman who is an old hand at this arcane art and science.

I can tell you that the search engine, when used with some patience and foresight, can yield incredibly helpful information if you are willing to dredge up the pearls from the dross.

I grew a few flushes off of brfvrm cakes before I posted anything in this forum. But I must be using the wrong seach engine because the one that I am using on the right hand side below all of the liks never, I repeat never answered a single question of mine. I realy like psyconaught's idea about a mushroom faq I would certainly use this page before posting a question.

i must say that the search feature is nice, but doesn't always take you where you want to go, even if the same question has been asked a million times. also, things are always being improved and rethought, and the old info isn't always the best. thanks for the tip though lares. i'll be sure to do a search before posting from now on.

I don't think it's anyone's job here to teach someone how to use a search engine to actually find the information you need. I also might point people to the find or grow them section, as well as many other places newbie questions can be asked.

Lemme just point out that I have nothing against newbie posts per se. Sometimes it's the new grower that comes up with the interesting questions. But, like I said before, it's tiresome to wade through literally page after page of questions that have been answered before, or are answered in a tek.

The point is, think before you post. Otherwise you waste *everyone's* bandwidth when they spend time downloading and then trying to find the few good, informative posts in the mass of same-old same-old.

This anger in here is stupid.

The best solution is to just look to see if someone has posted the same topic you want to ask. Most of the time its right there. If not post.

What ever happened to the student teacher mutual respect?

I'm guilty as charged of asking the same question that was on a page, but hey fuck it man.

As for lares, you should be more sympathetic and chill out.

SHIT!!!
sO THAT'S HOW THE OLD ONES feel about us!!!!
Damn!!!
First I'd like to say as a newbie to the computer age where at a click I can comunicate with someone in seconds and new to the shroom growing thing!!!
I must say this ... I don't know where any of you are from (i know if i wanted to find out I finally know how to use the search engine to learn how to do that and I've been posting for about a month now.) I live in a major city and the only people I know who shroom are no longer in my life as a matter of fact its been over 2 years since my last trip. I've been wanting to trip but don't know where to cop so I decided a year ago that I would do what I had to do to grow my own stash. It took me 7 months to mentally say the hell with it (many of my friends are in jail)over the last 6 months I've been reading what I could get my hands on (high times mag., shroom cultivator, and magic mushrooms growers guide (the old one from the 70's) I was even stupid enough to buy a kit from mushroom magic. ONe day about 2 months ago I came to this site and it truly is a god-send. Its great to know that after a day of hard work I can come to a site with people who have an intrest in what you are doing lets face it how often to you see something as special as this site and when i think about it i came upon it on accident
ONE thing that I have noticed through out this site and the books that I've read is that just like life very one has an opinon on what you should do.
I do agree about using the search engine first but if you see some one with a repeat ? then what is so bad about telling someone about how good the search engine is I've tried it and felt ashamed of myself for some of the foolish ? I've asked when I first logged on. I hope to have over a thousand post someday but until then I hope you don't mind if I ask a foolish question from time to time I'm counting on you guys to help me grow this wonderful fungus so that I can pass it on as well.
But most importantly FELLOW NEWBIE FRIENDS PLEASE USE THE SEARCH FIRST BEFORE POSTING.
AND "HEY SENIORS...DON'T JUST SLAM US KEEP IN MIND WHEN EVEN THOUGH YOU WERE READING AND LEARNING ABOUT GROWING KEEP IN MIND ALL THE QUESTIONS YOU HAD...REMEMBERED HOW MUCH IT SUCKED WHEN NO ONE REPLIED TO YOUR FIRST POSTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
ALL-IN-ALL THIS SITE RULES!!!!!

as some may know, i'm a big fan of using the search engine to research past topics
but from experience i know that can be very time consuming,
wading through 200 posts on casing birdseed, etc. to find the desired info.
sometimes people need a quick answer
or simply lack the online time to research the topic, what with having a life and all.
so i think it is ok if a newbie asks a question i've seen before. hell, after posting reading ADM for the last couple years i've lost count of how many times i've explained perlite or pinning, etc.
but to all you newbies, if you can't get your question answered here, come over to drooldonkey.org and we'll be glad to help out.
peace

I for one appreciated this post. As a newbie
to at least the message boards if not The Shroomery, I have found lares' post helpful, although a little rude :smile: I can imagine the frustration that the more experienced shroomerites feel when they keep seeing the same questions asked over and over again. Heck, I might even be guilty of asking one of those myself on occasion.

Hmmm. I am glad to see this topic come back. I grew shrooms for almost 1.5 years and i consider myself experienced. i grew 6 strains out in one year and only failed on one batch, and that was a new species.

The Search function helped me immensely when i first started out.I only had to ask a few questions that i couldnt find aswers to in the teks. Then again, I read every tek twice before I even attempted growing. When I finally had my tek down and i wasnt getting contamination any more, i began answering "newbie" questions.
In fact, I would say that 90% of my posts have been here in the cult board. answering questions. Within 3 months of doing this i had 4-6 people a week e-mailing me questions. This i do not mind at all. i can get back to a person via e-mail rather quckly. and i feel like im realy helping.

Over the last 3 months i have almost given up on the BB. the same questions over and over have made me a bit tired of it all.

All i ask is, if you are new at growing, and you have a question. THINK. Is it likey that this question has come up before? Then search for it. If you then cant find the answer in the search results or the growing teks... then post. This will save valuable bandwith and I will get back on here and answer some well thought out questions.

Don't get me wrong. i love this place and i would really like to answer all the questions, but its hard when you answer one and the same question pops up the next day or week, with a differnt subject line.

Thank you
