Wow this exact same thing happened to me. I just started my very first grow and t days after inoculating my BRF cakes and grain jars it goes down and I can no longer see the posts that I had asked for help on. But hey, mycotopia seems like a very good place to ask for help and get all the same information needed to get put on the right track. I'm impressed with this community the same as I was with shroomery. I've noticed that most of the same members in other forums mostly all come to this one. We are all the same community.

People, anyone who can follow the rules is welcome here.  Thats has always been true.  There doesn't need to be an 'us and them' thing.
 
The vibe at the Shroomery is not always for me, and I choose to hang here because I find it a more comfortable fit for me.  That is just a preference. I do not hate my fellow free souls, and I still recognise, and respect,  the vast amount of knowledge there. I hope that they get it going again soon.
 
On a side note, does anyone know what happened to cause the Shroomery to go down?


I heard it was a security issue that caused it to go down.

I hope this wake up call to vulnerability of the sites brings out more camaraderie and cooperation between the sites.  Disdaining and demeaning have no place really.  We all need each other and there is a wealth of knowledge available to share.  May they solve their issues soon!!!

Mycotopia has always been open to all in the OMC!

 

Consider us to be "Open Source" just like Ubuntu and all flavors of Linux.

 

Look forward to everyone sharing their experiences with one another!

 

Welcome to 'Topia!

This site has much nicer people,but I am missing Shroomery's vast amounts of information. Shroomery is the only site that has nearly everything I search for.

If you go down near the bottom of the home page, you will see the vaults. There is information there from the old dicus boards.

Topia has been around a very long time and I'll bet anything you want to find is here somewhere

 

Peace

This place is great. Don't get me wrong. But there is so little traffic. I would check Shroomery a couple times a day. There were always many new posts and ID requests. I do a lot of my learning through id requests. There's just not as many people here. Or if there are they're keeping to themselves.

'Topia has always had fewer members, and proportionally-less activity.

 

But that seems to be changing as traffic has noticeably increased in recent weeks.

It seems to me that there are plenty of people. I feel like not as many are checking in as often. I would guess there is a lower number of people utilizing mobile devices. That is just speculation and I may be wrong.
I did not really visit shroomery often but I have the feeling there is a bit of an older crowd here. Not saying that in a negative way by any means, but that would also contribute to lower mobile device users, which would also lead to less “checking in”
Who knows I may be off. Just what I have taken out of it from my time here so far.

I get excited every time I see your screen name. Because of mine obviously.

I noticed yours, too. And through them we're also revealing our age, lol...

 

 

 

Oh and FWIW, Summer has always been the (relative) off-season for 'Topia, if not for most discussion-oriented websites and forums.

 

It picks back up again once the weather and less daylight start driving us back indoors.

Haha that's good to hear. I think I was telling someone on PM something along the lines of "I think they have better work-life balance here???"

Hell, I got me a whole house! But at the same time, I also have no doors at all. It's kind of weird.

 

I left my house (doors and all) two years ago to take a gig I thought would be the one I've been seeking for more than a decade, and it turned out to be a bunch of bullshit so I bailed from it back in February.

 

So while I do in fact own a house I am also currently technically homeless as I rented it out when I left. It's a surreal situation, actually. I guess I'm technically a 'Topia refugee at the moment, but in real life. I've been living out of an overnight bag since I left in February, and I'm glad it wasn't in my truck when it got stolen a couple months ago or I'd be both homeless and clothes-less.

 

But it's all good; I have a plan.

We could hire a bunch of “less desirable” people to hang out in front of the house for the people leave.
Please tell me this is your plan.

Nah, they're good friends of mine. They even renovated a bathroom while they've been living in it (he's a contractor specializing in tile and his gf works with him). Besides, I don't want to live there anymore anyway, and by "there" I mean the entire goddamned backward-ass region.

That's the same theory I have. Definitely seems to be an older crowd but I'm down with that
