Why Are There So Few Entries Here ?
« on: February 04, 2015, 11:06:43 AM »
because we have only a few members and ask that if you see a future for this forum, one that provides more IT functionality then most, then please register.

I am unable to load test and tune the forum unless i have a genuine load and a larger database.

Many additional functions are available after registering, as we aim to provide a technically superior experience beyond just a typical forum (thanks to SMF and their modifications)

It only takes a minute or two to register.

i'm looking forward to deleting this thread.

it's so nice to have some action here but it's a catch-22; nobody likes a quiet board yet the data has to get populated somehow.

a special thanks to those who registered early ... we have put a lot of effort into getting to this point and would love to see it keep growing.

If you're comfortable saying, how is the board attracting new members?  Is it advertising, or attracting new members via other means? 
Transparency is necessary to ensure decent staff members get elected. Members need to know when staff are misbehaving, so members can be informed voters.

ask me anything, I'm down with that ... we are relying on word of mouth and a post in Opio and a few on my facebook.

if you want to spread the word then by all means.

I actually don't see it attracting many but it's still worth the expense ... it's given me lots of skills as it's built from scratch.

I'm going to make you an admin to open up your communications status - there is no workload or pressure on you.

I'm happy to help too, if I can.

I dunno how youse guys feel about this, but maybe try Reddit??? I dunno how selective you wanna be, but that might be an avenue to get more registered users.

I think the downside might be alot of newbs with those 'dood, can u shoot Vicodin?' type of posts... On the other hand, there are a fuckton of people there that could use some serious Harm Reduction.

Anyhow, just my $0.02...

facebook page now built and invites sent (search: forum.drugs-and-users.org)

i have asked Bluelight if we could cross-reference the two sites.

thanks ... i'll give anything a go ... let's see if they both generate some interest.

I second the Bluelight and Reddit plans.  I have an account to both, but I don't use them.  I've not been on Bluelight in the past 4-5 years.  As for Reddit, I created an account after Raz got banned and was spamming me on Reddit, but I've not posted since. 

But yeah, Reddit members (or some of them) could definitely use some Harm Reduction.  And Bluelight is just a good idea in general.  It's been around for a long, long time.  From what little I know, I don't think they'd be opposed to cross-reference sites. 

Good ideas.

Hmmm the best thing i can think of is to cre@te got threads but a lot of phile members dont really have many questions as damn near everything has been discussed pretty in depth. Im not saying that we know everything about opiates but with all the info on the phile we really had the opportunity to be super informed thus the lack of questions we have thus the lack of topics thus the number of searches from google that lead new members our way. I mean a whole shit ton of people found the phile by the good ole google machine. I dont know the answer to that though. Id say we have to be damn near the top of any opiate related  key words that are put into google. Fuck a duck if i know how to do that.....

You may be OK with that,BUT I am NOT!! It's common practice in harm reduction to help and support each other.

I privately asked one member if they had the time and inclination to consider starting a thread on tapering a drug. I agree, lots of folks know a lot because of Opiophile, but I feel like if ya don't use it, ya lose it--especially the nitty gritty details.

What do y'all think about creating our own section for tapering, dealing with side effects etc?  This could cover anything from heroin, Oxy,  benzos, methadone, SSRI/SNRIs and so on?  I think there so much collective wisdom and experience here that it would be great Harm Reduction for "old" and new users.  Just my .02.
Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.
Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.
