All About New Forum Requests...
    #6302 - 04/21/08 10:48 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Allow me to address the onslaught of posts and PM's about how this or that should have its own forum. While we do appreciate your ideas and excitement, it's very difficult to weigh what will actually work in terms of drawing a good amount of traffic at this early stage in our development. Therefore, we're probably going to be keeping things relatively sparse for the time being, such that our content is consolidated into a small handful of forums with broad-ranging topics.

Over time, we will evaluate which topics are receiving the most attention and that will play a significant factor in determining which new forums are added to the Growery. For now, let's just keep things as simple as possible. We fully intend to stick around for a while, so there will be plenty of time to suggest, evaluate, and implement new forums as we continue to grow both our membership and content.

With that being said, I cannot deny that many of you have some solid ideas, so feel free to use this thread to offer your suggestions and we will certainly consider them. Please remember that we're probably not going to act on many (if any) recommendations in the immediate future - but it will be beneficial to have all the suggestions placed in one thread for easy reference.

Any other topics that are posted with the sole intent to solicit a new forum will be locked or deleted. Thank you for your cooperation and your ideas! We will consider them all, but please don't feel offended if we don't individually address or immediately implement your suggestion. There's a lot of work to be done 'round here!

:lol:

The drying, curing and storing forum seems like a good idea. I think alot of people need work on these techniques, at least from a consumers view.

I know that when I do grow, this is the most important info yet for me to learn.

I've started a Coco growers thread in the cult section.

Coco could have a sub forum of it's own as it differs from both soil grows and true hydro growing.

As for wiccan seekers idea of a curing and harvesting forum... Blurg, waste of space, an FAQ on the subject would be more than enough and I'm sure somebody would be happy to write one.

Yes, there will certainly be a section in on the Main Site GrowFAQ dedicated to various aspects of the harvest and curing process.
I also tend to agree that a forum dedicated to that topic would become an exercise in redundancy, but I could be wrong.

i think a forum for nutrients would be beneficial. Too many brands out there so selection can be confusing. Would be nice to have a place to talk about new and different things to do with additives, feeding schedules, new brands/mixtures coming out, etc.

i believe a nutrient thread in the right forum would be better suited. like hydroponic nutrient thread and soil nutrient thread.

it would be like having a spore forum on the shroomery instead of the strain thread

The video game forum could be added when there are more original members. IME most potheads :heart: video games.

I know plenty of stoners who can talk for hours about that stuff.

I suggest a beginners forum, with a cloning subforum. Without one, the other forums will end up inundated with the same shitty 8 questions.

everyone already knows the only way to get high snorting keif is to preload with jenkem.

Why not just use the main Cult forum as the catch-all? Developed and informative topics of substance can be posted into the appropriate sub-forum, or moved between the main Cult forum and the appropriate sub-forum. In the same manner, threads lacking substance that may have been posted in a sub-forum, can be moved back to catch-all main cult forum?

Perhaps a beginner's forum is a good idea, but too often when I see segregation of beginners/advanced forums, the beginners don't learn as much because a disproportionate amount of knowledgeable folk stay out of that forum since they just don't need it. To intermingle experience levels, provides a greater leaning opportunity to beginners imo. And as we are organizing topics via sub-forum for individual cultivation technique, I'm hoping there won't be as much fluff to begin with, since information will be well categorized and therefore easily referenced by the noobs.

i agree beginners forums are kind of redundant. It would also be a headache to maintain since you're going to have to deal with beginner indoor/outdoor/hydro questions etc. The majority of newb questions can be answered through faq's and other assorted links. There's about a bajillion beginner cultivation faqs and guides available and would be a lot easier to link to them.

What about a section on growroom design and DIY projects?

Grow-room design definitely sounds like a solid idea that would garner a fair lot of participation. Definitely one to keep in mind!

Would RogerRabbit still be at the shroomery if there wasnt a beginners and advanced mush cult? I think not. The problem with calling a forum 'advanced' is people think there questions are advanced, when they are not. so i am not i favor of a forum labeled 'advanced'. But people still need somewhere they can ask basic (read: stupid) questions
Actual growers do not want to shuffle though countless 'how much will this yield?' and 'i have an 8 week strain, but i need to harvest in 6 weeks, will this work?' threads

I love the clean design of the site and dont like a lot of cluttered forums. BUT

I really think there should be some form of a main "Weed" forum. Not necessarily The Stoned Experience, but something similar. I know this site is a cultivation site first, but you can't deny there will be plenty of weed talk as the community gets bigger. Which isn't a bad thing.

This site also provides, will provide, information about the usage and affects of marijuana. IMO I would like a separation from the "Im stoned.. Checkout my 8th".., and "GF dumped me"... posts.

Something other than the Smoke lounge, that's more off topic. Not OTD. I just don't see Cultivation taking over as the main forum.

I know its wayyyy early though :grin:
Only my opinion, this site kicks ass either way.

Yeah coda, I agree. A growroom design forum would be nice for most of us. I don't think that anyone here wouldn't like a modification here or there. Besides, most ppl that are considering indoor cult still think they need a damn degree in electrical engineering to get anything accomplished.

I would like to see an ethno forum, being the damn ethnoguy and all lol.

Anyways, I am glad things are up and running!

Personally, I like things to be broken down into more specific categories. For example, I would love to see (once the site sees more activity) a (sub)forum called "Drug Policy Reform" where those topics can be discussed separately from the activism forums. Just so we can all keep the topics that are being created organized in places that people will be able to easily find. just my 2 cents.

I agree more appropriate categories may be necessary soon. But proper forum theory indicates that the split should occur when the number of posts in a forum becomes too great. The subcategory at the Shroomery is actually very cool and maybe could be applied to the cultivation forum here.

I would say when the number of posts (not dumb posts sometimes found in the Smoke Lounge) pushes a post off a forum in 12-24 hours is when the category has been overloaded.

This prevents people from coming up with forum ideas and insisting they are necessary only to have a barren forum that gets less traffic than Podunk, USA.

The categorical labeling allows people to view all the topics should they choose, instead of clicking clicking clicking to all the forums.

The "paraphanalia" section will ultimatley be the RateMyPipe section on the main site. RateMyPipe started as its own website at RateMyPipe.com a couple of years ago... right now its functionality isn't the best as we imported all the data from the old site, and are now using different software to manage it. Eventually, that'll all be worked out and the RMP section of the front-end will allow you to display, rate, comment, and easily browse through everyone's pieces.

I think we need a "Ethnobotanical Cultivation" forum to discuss things like Cacti, Coca, Ayahuasca, etc.

You also need a Psychoactive Experience forum, to discuss different cannabis highs, as well as entheogenic trips.

Maybe this was mentioned already ...
In case it hasn't:

I think we could definitely benefit from a Computer forum around here.

I know it's early still, but I think that would work.

The point is that people who come here from outside won't even know about the Shroomery.
We're trying to make this a stand-alone board.
We don't want to have to say: "Sorry, that's not available here - you'll have to register at the Shroomery to do that."

Photography forum, or more likely sub-forum under MJ pictures

Due to some amazing macro shots across the boards I am under the impression that many people here have very nice cameras and like to dabble in taking pictures of many things other than their stash.

The forum could be a place to compare cameras, lenses, lighting techniques, macros etc etc, and also just somewhere to post cool pictures from fun trips or walks through the woods.

I'm confused as to why the shroomery has so much traffic and the grower has so little in comparison.

the shroomery leads people in I guess with the idea that if they have questions about the experience of a drug or side effects or amount to take or whatnot they're questions will be answered there.

the growery is about cannabis, which I guess the question of cannabis is answered at so many other destinations. None the less, there could be a shitload of people with questions on here, maybe it has something to do with the sponsors, aren't the growery sponsors shroomery sponsors? having shroom sponsors for weed projects probably doesn't bring much traffic, oh well

not that I'd know......

Because this site needs more outside advertising and visibility from the outside.

There are so many weed sites running, we're just a speck in the overall picture.

I see

yeah, that's true. Most cannabis sites have links and sponsor seed companies, that brings in a ton of people.

I think every site like the shroomery or growery needs a forum to talk about gatherings and such, it'd be nice to coordinate rainbow gathering type shit online.

It's because the Shroomery has the OTD.

Plain and simple.

Plus they have the free heroin ring.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that the Growery isn't even two months old yet, whereas the Shroomery has been around for over ten years...

i still think we should have a psychoactive effects forum on this board

the shroomery is an interesting site, because it's almost a link to erowid, it says "how do you grow mushrooms, how much do you eat? what do they do? did you enjoy this experience? share it with others"

there's so many weed cultivation forums out there, but it'd be cool if there was a different one like the shroomery "how do you grow weed, how much does a person smoke? does it vary from smoker to smoker? does it give you a psychedelic effect or just a stoned feeling? how does it interact with other drugs? do you think weed is helpful relaxing to the mind? share it with others" type of deal

i don't know, anyone?????

damn

no one, huh?

i think it'd make for a better site

and maybe different descriptions of types of cannabis due to psychoactive reports

maybe it'd be a personal reference, but still

seeing "JUICY FRUIT IS THE BEST WEED I'VE EVER SMOKED! SMOKED IT WITH A HIT OF ACID, EXTENDED MY TRIP 3 HOURS, COULDN'T STOP SMOKING THIS STUFF"

would make everyone want to grow juicy fruit

oh well

we could have more conversational topic forums like the shroomery does

How many people have created how many threads so far in the available forums that most allow for that type of discussion so far? The statement that has been made on creating new forums, which is very reasonable, is that it isn't a wise idea to create a multitude of different forums before there is a reasonable amount of traffic in the forums that do exist. The Smoke Lounge is more than capable of handling discussion about the psychoactive properties of cannabis, I'm sure. If there becomes enough discussion on that specific topic, then it would make sense to create a forum to better organize and manage that traffic. The main point of this website is cultivation, and even that is still beta.

There hasn't been very many posters looking for that sort of discussion, although it would be great to see enough discussion happening to justify a forum. A much better idea to start with would be a section on the main site full of information on medicinal usage of cannabis.

It being in beta means that it is essentially a test version of the website. As in, not complete.

alright

well, it'd be cool to have a real educational cannabis website, sort of like the shroomery

although i don't see exact links to timothy leary, albert hoffman, or 1967 san fransisco culture links at the shroomery, it seems to be a lot more educational of the aspect of tripping, not just a site where you go talk about drugs

i'm all down with cannabis grow forums, and although there are 1000 cannabis grow forums on the net, there aren't as many freindly type places as there are at the growery where you can see people you recognize consistently answer your questions(although i'm not saying there's none, check out breedbay forums)

although there are 1000 cannabis grow forums on the net is what i'm trying to say. having a unique one emphasizing medicinal use as much as the shroomery has emphasized mind opening and expanding abilities of mushrooms would be nice. or maybe cannabis experience reports, there is a cannabis experience reports section at erowid, don't think it's idiotic.

anyway, i'm just saying that the shroomery is one of the only places with as much psychedelic emphasis on the net. like i said, i don't hear people quoting timothy leary in every other post, but i'm sure it would be reemphasized quite commonly there.

just give it a thought, i'm just saying this place could be banging. although i understand a grow forum is a grow forum.

anywayz.............peace

GROWery.

Grow        1. to increase by natural development, as any living organism or part by assimilation of nutriment; increase in size or substance.

The shroomery is about growing shrooms, the growery is about growing weed.  The focus on growing weed is fundamental to its status as an educational site.  I fail to see how the scientifically inaccurate mumbo jumbo espoused
by the late Mr Leary could influence the educational aspect of this site but that's only my opinion.

The smoke lounge is the perfect place for you and others to post your cannabis experiences, after all, it's called the smoke lounge and is the perfect place to talk all about smoking cannabis.

wtf

are you people crazy?

i think timothy leary had some pretty bad ass ideas. Although he had some crazy ideas. he emphasized intellectualism with lsd


how could you have a forum about a psychedelic or a psychoactive without emphasizing the mind stimulating aspect.


talking about shrooms or acid without the intellecualism involved mentally or psychologically is like talking about cannabis plants in terms of smoking the end result and leaving out the emphasis of growing


without the psychological mind opening aspect of psychedelics, there's no point in them. without the mind there's no point in drugs.


i mean, you can go anywhere on the internet and learn about growing plants or mushrooms or whatever. but a discussion forum is for discussion, emphasizing the aspect of mentality with the prospect of psychoactives.

I think we need to boost traffic before we get all spaced out with our ideas. :shrug:

I like the idea of education on the website, but IMO, primarily to bolster a better image of us potheads so that if a stranger brings this up on google or something, they see we're not a bunch of drugged up loony's, but informed peers of the community. :yesnod:

But first we need the traffic to get up there o a google search. I'm going to googgle weed right now and see where we are...

Alrighty, I entered growing weed and by page twenty I had seen three shroomery threads pop up and not a single mention of the growery...:crazy:


--------------------
It's funny how when you're talking about testing the first nuclear weapon, which some scientists thought could possibly set off a chain reaction that would burn off our entire atmosphere and leave a lifeless barren rock floating in space, the risk is justified. But if a few extra people might get stoned it's just too dangerous to try.

I'm glad to see these discussions-- I, too, look forward to the day when there is enough interest in a Medicinal Uses thread, what with all the stuff available out there showing such potentially life-changing medicinal uses for cannabis in all it's forms-- hell, this stuff is said to cure freaking cancer, for weeds sake!

The significance of the medicinal properties of marijuana can not be understated...

Thanks again to the mods for having this place in the first place-- I love it!

Okay, so the general consensus seems to be that we do not have enough traffic to support very many specialty forums.

Quote:

geokills said This thread has been closed.

Reason:
Please take a look at this.  Frankly, we do not support the volume of traffic that would make such specialized single-interest forums a success at this time.  The Smoke Lounge - which can easily encompass all of the topics you have suggested and more - is not even all that busy.  So as our traffic increases, we can begin to add new special interest forums... but for now, I just don't see the need and in fact believe that it would dilute the community by spreading things out all too thin.






And I'm sure many of us can see this point. I can.

I'd say also that most agree that The Shroomery is a very popular site, compared to this one.

Why, though, is the shroomery super-popular, while its sister-site seems to be lacking those numbers....?

I'm sure we could come up with a bunch of valid reasons. However, I think a big part of this has to do with the limited range of topics discussed here, compared to there. A lot of people probably find shroomery through drug-related web searches. I'm sure much of this is to do with psychedelics and growing mushrooms, but I'm willing to bet A LOT of other drug searches end up there.

Now, in my research of drugs, I've visited TONS of forums on the topic. But I'm only a member of a few. Why is that?

Aside from not having unlimited time, quality membership and quality discussion are the things that attracted me to these forums. The shroomery, IMO, has the best sub-forums in the whole "scene" and that's why I go there.

I love the pub, in the shroomery. And it seems kind of like "the smoke lounge" is our equivalent. On the other hand, sometimes I see serious topics that are not taken as serious as they should be, (or more often, are never seen after a day or two, by those not posting) and so discussion lags or stalls, or doesn't happen in the first place. Whereas, if those same topics were addressed in a focus forum, where members went specifically to address those issues; more of these topics will be on a first page, possibly giving them a greater audience among the existing members.

I am more likely to click into another subforum or 5 than I am to click back 15 pages into the smoke lounge to find an interesting topic.

The other idea that I had, is that in a forum where there aren't a ton of members and a lot going on, that can sometimes cause the more quiet in the group to become more vocal.

And last, I have to say that I find it a little bit funny that some of the members seem to be pretty vocal about wanting more forums... and the mods seem pretty adamant on that decision (basing it on numbers)... and then after not listening to the membership, the mods wonder why there aren't members.

Come on...that's a little funny.

Anyway, I'm not an expert on the subject. Just my thoughts.

I also did want to point out that while the "we should talk about it in the Smoke Lounge" argument does have some validity--

The topics in the Smoke Lounge seem to be a mix of pot (or drug) related, and non-drug related topics.

At the very least it would seem cool to have a "general marijuana discussion" forum. This way we would have a place for focused intelligent cannabis discussion (that does not involve cultivation or cooking); while at the same time at least having one social, non-drug related, off-topic kind of forum.

yeah they are.  But i think the reason we aren't as populated as the shroomery is because of the more than decade headstart the shroomery had at establishing itself.  the only advantage we have here over any other new site is that we started with a ton of shroomery members.  we;ve been building from there.

I do like your suggestion about having a place for some higher level cannabis discussion, I'm not really an expert, but it would be a good way to help educate members, I just don't know if the numbers are there.

Yeah, this place is slowly growing.  You figure out of all new members, some will post a few times then leave, some will just be idiots, and we'll get some good members too.  Slowly, but surely, the site is growing I think.  I like it the way it is myself.  I do think that sports forum was a good add on.  It'll be a little slow at first I think, with a small core of people posting in it, but it to, will grow.

If you build it, they will come :lol:

Seriously, a lot of newbs dont realize Shroomery has been around for 17 years. The Growery is approaching its 3rd year. I bet this site has grown more quickly than Shroomery did....

I could be wrong, that's speculation.

I like it here though. It's good people.

I believe he originally launched it in 94' though when he was like 14 years old. Maybe under a different name

not much difference between 11 and 14 years. The point is still the same

Yeah, but I think that in order to really grow we need to have stuff that NO other forums have. And even if we get attention and attract some people, if they see a really limited range of discussion going on here, they may not want to stick around. I know I've done that with forums. Anyone else?

I think more cannabis related forums (at least one as I mentioned) would be advantageous for this reason among others.

Also, I strongly advocate other non-cannabis/drug related forums. However, I will have nothing to ever contribute to sports, unless discussion of martial arts pops up (which I'll never see unless I search for it, or am directed there.)  Not a fan, myself, and while cannabis seems to become more and more ubiquitous in all sectors of society, I've known tons of stoners who hate team sports. :shrug:

I'm not saying that makes it a bad idea or anything. I'm sure lots will use it. But how many people, for example, do you know who just don't like music. Or watching movies?

Music seems like a natural pairing with cannabis, so the tunetown subforum is neat. However, I posit that other forms of art and entertainment are almost as strongly tied.

We could, in theory, do something silly like make an "Art Under the Influence" kind of forum. You could dump tune-town into there, as its own little sub-forum (because I think it deserves it) and open a slightly wider discussion on arts and entertainment.

Or if you wanted to go even MORE wide-ranging, the main forum there could be something like "Popular Culture and Subculture."

Just some thoughts...

I'm not sure what the plans are the subject matter that overlaps what's already on the shroomery.  They have a massively awesome other drugs section, politics, money matters, all good forums.  I don't know if, or at what point, they plan to put new forums here.  So far it's been pretty much user feedback coupled with the admins opinions.  I DO agree that the it would be nice if the actual cannabis related topics were separated out from the rest of the smoke lounge garbage.  I think that would provide an extra benefit that we don't currently have.  Or maybe just make it easy and add a subforum where you can simply tag the post with it's cannabis relevance, like we do with in progress grow journals vs completed and abandoned journals.  But bottom line, i agree that those things should be separated out.  There IS some good cannabis information in the smoke lounge.  There are also non-cannabis related posts in there that get turned into really good cannabis discussions.  Any other thoughts??

Yes. Lots of them.


I understand that we're not looking to build a shroomery clone. (Though I will say for the record, that the number of people who are into cannabis exclusively, and therefore might register here but not there, might actually justify something like that.) However, I think it's worth looking at what we are willing to mirror somewhat and where we need to be different. Otherwise, why not have just started a whole "marijuana cultivation" section on shroomery, if that is ALL we wanted to have...?

If we were to try staying away from ANY topics/forums/sub-forums that the shroomery has, then we might as well end this discussion now. Shroomery covers almost everything at this point.

On the other hand: As with all drugs in general, and as with psychedelics particularly, cannabis has influenced society and culture in a number of ways. As such it seems logical that we include discussion ABOUT society (and, of course, the connections between them.)

We could have a "human mind" kind of forum. "This is Your Mind on Cannabis," kind of thing. This could encompass topics ranging from psychology to spirituality and religion. These could be discussed in general and/or in regard to how they are connected to and affected by cannabis.

One point I want to highlight from this is that religious and spiritual belief/thought have, without doubt, been influenced by cannabis. As such, focused discussion on spirituality in SOME way is a good idea. I mean come on, CANNABIS IS A SACRAMENT FOR SOME.

Cannabis, quite obviously, also has an impact on HEALTH, PSYCHOLOGY, RELATIONSHIPS, and GOVERNMENT.  I'm not proposing each of those as a forum, just saying that each seems like a valid, broad topic base, that can be addressed.

I think the politics of cannabis is worthy of being addressed. You could make a "Law, Activism, and Personal Freedom" kind of forum. (This would also squeeze the current "activism" bit into here, leaving "medical" with a forum all its own, which it kind of deserves. More on that later...) This could not only take on Activism and discussion of Government and Law, but could also include discussion of how to increase one's personal safety, which seems like a vital topic that's missing from the board.

(Alternately you could call that one something like "Law, Activism, and Safety," but we wouldn't want to sound like the shroomERY. :p )

I would say that the "Arts and Entertainment" kind of forum I mentioned before is also a major point, and probably one of the non-drug forums we need the most. I mean shit, sports is entertainment, and it gets its own sub-forum even though everything else other than music is left to general chat? I'd say that music, movies, books, poetry, painting, photography, drawing, etc, all owe more inspiration to cannabis than do the likes of football, baseball, etc. amirite?

I think it's way too early to warrant any kind of focused discussion forums on relationships or sexuality, even though I'd say both, especially relationships, are influenced by cannabis. Plus, the other site does have a focus for that one.

On the other hand, I think it would be cool to have an Advice and/or 'Noids Anonymous kind of forum. Anyone with non-pot questions or problems (or non-legal-safety, if we had that forum) could go there. I initially considered this because it could encompass some of the relationship/sex thing. I would vote on a "Help/Advice" forum. Though second to that I'd take an Anon forum. haha

I also do advocate the "Pharmacology and Chemistry of Cannabis" type forum that has been proposed. I do understand the argument that there are not a lot of members with professional-level knowledge in those areas, but I think that's a somewhat weak reason not to start it. ALTHOUGH...if my previous suggestions were implemented, you could squeeze this right in with Medicinal, and the focus would be more towards that, since Activism would already be In with the "Law, Activism, and Safety," type forum.

Did someone say, "If you build it, they will come?" :lol:
