Hey Mycotopiates, furthur here and im posting this thread as a tid bit of insider info on a fellow mycology forum. We all love the mushrooms and there is no reason we shouldnt all get along.

I was an administrator on Shroomotopia and a member there for many years. It pains me to inform everyone here that the website is no more and i fear the threads may be lost forever now.

I dont know if anyone has ever stopped there to hang out and get to know anyone but its gone now and there is no word if it will return in the future. For that reason im here now and hope to make some friends here just like i did there.

Im in for a life long haul of studying mushrooms and having a blast doing it. I just hope more shroomotopia members surface and start adding to the threads here.

I'm saddened to hear your homes doors have shut. When one closes, another opens. Welcome to topia!

 

I'm sure you'll fit in here, I hope you may recover your archives and that more of your buddies from there find themselves on the path to topia!

I am sorry you have lost a pkace you felt invested and obviously fond of. You and everyone is welcome here. I have no doubt you will feel as welcome and make new (and perhaps even reconnect with a few old) friends here as well.

 

I understand the sadness of loss of thread history. We lost some old excellent material at one time during a dificult migration, but there is the reason to rebuild those archives, and I know we would all welcome more good information.

 

Glad you found your way here and I hope you soon feel very at home.................

So I found this.

 

It would appear as though all your forums were member only. Else; we may have been able to scrape some content from the web archive and preserve some of your work and effort. If that's something you would have wanted to do.

 

I'm not sure of the circumstances, but if it's possible to pay an extra month or finagle in some way to get your server back online long enough to scrape it, we could do that as well. Essentially, it sucks to lose so much and we would be willing to do as much as reasonable to help you preserve in some fashion.

 

Generally, sorry you had to lose the site and the work. At the very least you are here now so welcome home!

Sorry to hear the news Furthur! It saddens me to think of the loss of a community more than the data loss. I can't imagine the impact that must have or if it happened here in this community. I can say "Welcome" again, and I am glad you decided to join here! Please reach out to your friends and family and let them know they are also welcome? As a community or sister sites with likeminded folk, I would like to encourage our community here at Mycotopia to reach out also and invite our friends and give them a warm welcome! I will post a welcome thread in our Welcome Mat and hopefully others will follow to Furthur. I don't know the reason or why Shroomotopia is down or if it is temporary or permanent. I do feel the loss though.

I'm sorry that your community is now gone. I remember there was this one small, but tight-knit active community mainly dealing with cannabis, but other discussion was had there, too. I met a lot of cool internet buddies from that place, but then it kicked the can ages ago. It's never fun to lose a cool online hangout spot.

 

Hopefully you and some others from Shroomotopia can come here or go to other similar communities to all stay in touch and continue spreading the knowledge.

Hey Furthur1, I've been to that forum once or twice guess I musta signed as a member if it was members read only. . so that's where your from I knew you weren't just some ya-hoo judging from the pictures of your first thread . . like neimandgeist I was on a great somewhat little marijuana fourm and it went down for ever right be my eyes, clicked something after I was read a final PM ... and gone . . So I feel for you and the members . .

Anyway sad day for our brothers maybe by you posting this they might find you

Further1. I just imagined myself signing into Mycotopia one day and discovering that it was down for good so as to get into your headspace. A terrible thought! I have so many friends and have learned so much on this forum, and hopefully have lent some knowledge myself. I can't really imagine just how painful that would be, but i assure you this community is an incredible one, and I'm sure you will find a home here!

So come on in! Our tent is big, and we have plenty of room and smiles. Let me pass you the peace pipe of friends and family you will find here...it's loaded with some really good shit! ;)

Hello all... just returning after a hiatus and just wanted to say that I'm bummed the 'topia is gone. It was probably the forum I was most active in. I came looking for some pictures I had posted in the 12 incher club and found this thread letting me know it was a futile search. Either way, my studies are continuing and are in full swing! Glad to be a part of the community.
