Share the Shroomery user database with the Growery
    #670 - 04/20/08 10:13 AM (8 years, 7 months ago)

Like you have shared the news, I think you should also share the user database. That way, users can make a user name on one site and use their account on both websites. It would be ultra-beneficial to site traffic, keeping both sites alive, and user convenience. Plus there will be no "No, I'm the REAL muppet" etc.

Also, forums that do not specifically discuss mushrooms or marijuana I think should also be shared between the sites. Such as the religion forum, the gardening forum, the OTD forum, etc.

That way, people won't begin to prefer one site over another and neither will ever die out.

BTW, un-ban me from the Shroomery, the ban you gave me was too long. :crankey: BUT! I will accept this ban on the Growery as well if you will make the two above changes to the website at one point.

You're not gonna go doing something stupid and get banned from here as well, are you?

I don't think it is a good idea to do so.

So far as duplicate usernames, all registered Shroomery usernames are being reserved here at the Growery for about a week's time. Anyone who tries to register a name that already exists at the Shroomery, must register with the same password, otherwise they will not receive that name. So we are doing the next best thing by allowing people to keep their identity if they want to.

For now, that's probably the best we can do.

Don't agree with sharing the whole database, but a script could look-up usernames from the shroomery database AND copy the member number to make it easier later to share the community forums.

You can use the leaf from here for the ratings:  :bigweed:

Thanks! But unfortunately I was unable to register the username "poke smot!" here as you must have changed the rules on what usernames can contain, since I first registered at the shroomery in 03.

It would be just grand if you made an option on the shroomery somewhere, so a user could click "reg me on the growery" and it will activate their account here using the same username, password, and email as is set in their shroomery profile.

A sticky thread at the Shroomery announcing the Growery's launch and the week-long reservation might be expedient. :wink:

Also, I don't think sharing the community forums would work. I think this site should be independent. Its likely to attract a different demographic and sharing community forums might undermine the Shroomery's unique sense of culture and whatnot. :shrug:

Just consider the fact that there will be new people to this site, who know nothing of the Shroomery.

Won't you want them to have the same type of forum versatility as we do over there?

It's not a technical reason why the user databases are separate. That was my original idea and it wouldn't be any more difficult than the current system. But the members and other admins voiced a preference for the current setup so that's what I went with. I leave finding the original threads where it was discussed as an exercise for the reader.

It's fine the way it is.
I just think the username reservation should be longer than a week.

I don't like the idea of sharing the user name data base. There are sooo many good user names over at the shroomery that have been long abandoned by their owner. It'd be wastefull to bring the names over here as well. It will cut down on the user name options for all of our new members and they'll be stuck with gay names that are full of numbers or misspelled right off the bat.

I like the way it is now, if you are a consistent member, and you want to keep your name, you can. Otherwise, someone else should be allowed to use it.

They should have expiration for names more than a few months old.
This would free up quite a few quality names for the rest of us.

I don't really like that idea either. If i leave and come back a year later, i think my account should still exist. However i wouldn't have expected my name to carry over to new forums like the growery since i wasn't there at the time to claim it.

I wouldn't make the accounts at the shroomery expire,but maybe they could have an expiration for those names to make them available over here. (Maybe i missed your point and that what you were saying from the start)

Either way, i don't think Ythan has the time to worry about this petty stuff when he already has a system in place that works.
