From search I can see many of you are familiar with The Nook. For those who are not, its a long standing ethnobotany forum with a historical penchant for chemistry and psychedelics.

Its been due for upgrades for quite some time and it was determined that the best way to give it the changes it needs [including implementation of SSL] is to start a new nook. This will prevent all the problems that a decades worth of updates would cause. The old forum will be locked as an archive on the 14th. Members are encouraged to register on the new forum [Here], preferably with their current user name. New users are, of course, welcome as well.

I was one of the original 4 Admins. Truly a sad adventure. I am surprised it is even being upgraded considering the lack of involvement there. Perhaps a fresh forum will rejuvenate it. I pop in there once or twice a year but there is rarely much going on. Best of luck. I do hope things pick up.

I've been there for 13 years now. Your right that it has shrunk quite a bit from a decade ago and honestly I'm surprised it didnt die a year or two ago, but it still has a tightly knit core group of generous and knowledgeable people keeping it afloat. For a time, when other ethnobotany sites were getting conservative and restrictive or even overtly childish, the freedom and unique character of the nook was a real refuge for me. It'd be great if the place has a revival, and apparently it now at least has that chance :smile:

Can't think of "The Nook" without 'ol Nan ...

 

It's an interesting piece of history, back when message boards were ... well, something, really.

 

The idea of a member splitting from mycotopia to setup a new site in 2019 is comical.

 

Which is why I'm introducing "Soliver's Sanitorium" - coming soon!

 

:)

I was, and am a member there. Have been since it was started as Nan's Nook.

Mycotopia lost almost half it's members when Nan and Hippie had a "difference of opinion".

I check in there once in a while but, as One says, not much action.  Most of the friends I had have moved on from there.

Nan was once a big contributor here and I had fond memories of those days.

Not so much after the drama of taking not only peeps but data as well.

 

Karma caught up in the end.

 

I'll checkout the reboot if I can remember my login.

 

Now what's exciting is the upcoming "Soliver's Sanitorium"! :biggrin:

The nook never actually shut down, but it did have some severe technical issues a year or so ago that prevented new registrations at that time.

You should have no trouble with registration at the new nook.

I'm hoping Sol will share his famous brain stew receipe once a young speciman shows up for a skull candy demonstration.

OK, anyone having sign-in problems needs to know this

as part of the registration process you'll be asked for an email address - part of an identity verification protocol  huh.gif

you can use a handful of email providers without issue but the protocol will not accept any email address that ends with .yahoo or .gmail etc. any of those cheapy free providers. they will be bounced immediately

IF you don't have an email account with one of the preferred providers you can end-around by doing this

Let's say the name you register with is JackIsAnIdiot

when asked, during the registration process, for an email address you'll enter [email protected]

this seems to be what's caused the interference for new registrees who havent been entered by the admin or coached through by someone else.
