Growing the Growery - Your Opinions Wanted!
    #812076 - 04/29/16 08:44 PM (7 months, 8 days ago)

Alright people, let's brainstorm :gethigh:.  The competition out there for cannabis related websites is fierce, but with cannabis having hit the mainstream, there's no reason that the Growery can't do better in attracting new members and being a better informational resource for the world.  With that in mind, let's hear your ideas about what we can do to help make that a reality.  I'm going to scrape together a brief survey here, but most importantly, please take a moment to post your thoughts in detail so we can get a better idea of what y'all think could work here.  What options/features do other cannabis websites provide that you would like to see here?  What can we do differently or better than other websites?  What are we doing poorly?  Where can we most improve and what do you think are good ways to go about it?

I want to see this place grow, and I want the community members to have a voice in how that happens, so speak up!

I like the site and most of the people that post, but as of late we've attracted mostly ass hats.

A random idea...

My chick spends a lot of time going to random sites because theres a chance to win something. Im not sure how you would advertise, but you could offer monthly prizes for signing up.

:shrug:

Also, to make this site seem more welcoming you need to ban po, stoneth, sham87, deadkdnys, draw, koop, that llama kid, magash, agmotes, pizzeria, poor boy, volcom, and geokkills.

Get rid of those guys and you will not only have a larger crowd, you will also have a shit ton of vendors.

Learning to love life by living through loss and mistakes
Lessons learned then gradually surfacing, Letting go, stripping naked to scream
I am not perfect nor do I strive to be, I am alive in this world of face first falls and public breakdowns
I'm a retarded, disfigured clown
Dying to be heard through the simple art of letting this heavy wall finally fall
I'm an equal being of no race, or color, a hallucination if you will
Sneaking into the lives of strangers, and letting them fall apart to a new rhythm just to feel better

LOL :smirk: ... Why bother to get rid of me, I've barely even been here! :tongue2: :doh:

I do hear ya on contest/promotions, and am going to work on figuring out a way to incentivise sponsors to hold more promotional giveaways here.  If any of you have a connection with vendors who might be willing to hand out a few seeds in exchange for an advertising banner here, to help get the ball rolling, please have them reach out to me or hook me up with their contact info so we can get them set up!  Email address in my profile.

Sup.

I find the lack of information, disturbing.

Dont get me wrong, the trusted cultivators know their stuff, but im not seeing a step by step guide and everything necessary to fully grow, bysides making a thread for information when the thought comes, and ive heard people say use the search bar but how can I search for stuff that I dont even know exists.

Maybe im not seeing it somewhere, but I wish it was a direct line to everything, instead of resorting to the smoke lounge for basic talk, or stalking peoples journals.

Then the site should fully encourage for every member to reply back with their grow for the sites database, not just making it optional, but fully recommended, causing more posts, questions, and activity.

The very first thing I would do is amalgamate the forums. At least 50% should be cut/combined. That alone will make the site appear to be more active. In cultivation for example, there is no reason to have the 3 sub-forums. Put them all in one and perhaps have an option to tag the thread as one of those categories.

This is an interesting idea.  I tend to agree that the three sub-forums in Cult are dilutive and relatively obscure.  Offering the ability to tag cult threads with Indoor Soil/Indoor Hydro/Outdoor, while keeping them consolidated in the same main forum display makes a whole lot of sense.  I also tend to feel that the Grow Room Design forum should probably be consolidated into the Cult forum.  Possibly even Doctor's Diagnosis being scrapped and rolled into the main Cult forum as well?

I've suggested this before, but it would be cool if we each got a few hundred growery.org stickers to slap around our hometowns.

Nope. He's had a shitload of chances to reform his behavior and adhere to our requested guidelines, and has repeatedly failed to do so.

What do you think makes the shroomery so popular?

I'm fairly certain that marijuana is the more popular drug.

I'd talk to the mighty ythan for some insight; ask how he promoted the site in the beginning and follow suit. I'd maybe consider putting up more growery ads on the shroomery, too.

Maybe the web is saturated with Cannabis sites?

I think shroomery has alot of younger kids and frankly we don't need em. Aswell yall notice how these fantasy and role playing sites r popular. Well I think shroomery is more attractive to them in the sense that the naive psychonauts are captivated.by the extravagant story telling and then u have the liars who wanna tell how big their e-balls and how they eat 7 grams on the regular. Then u have those chill people who are truly interested in shrooms and the company and social setting. Cannabis is more cut and dry. No fantasy story telling. No psychic or alien or reptilian humanoids. Just us assholes telling people how to grow clip and extract a weed, while high as shit....cheers

I'm sorry if I'm beating a dead horse here, but why did he have to go from the growery as well? He seemed to keep it chill here.
I have to admit I miss the heck out of that old coot.

Wow just wow.

I think this is the first  post I could understand.

When you ramble about nothing did you just smoke a bowl of meth?
At least then it would make sense about your incoherentness.
