2 people messaged me already that they can't add any posts  because of issues with the verification boxes.

News / tor mirror site
« Last post by H-Y-D-R-A on November 09, 2022, 10:15:54 PM »
A tor mirror site on a dedicated server. Just copy all the /talk/ folder to the tor server, reconfigure for the tor address.
Keep this site and when down, goto tor site.
Syncing the two databases is easy.

Yes, I sent Vesp a PM about this, so far no response unfortunately. I for my part have backed up my posts, as well as a few threads of my interest. If someone with the knowledge could provide a most recent backup of the whole site, that could be very important. I'm getting a sour feeling about the downtimes lately. In case this goes down, regroup at HL or SCM...

^ Looks like this mirror hasn't been updated in nearly a decade...

This would be a long shot, but Erowid hosts the Hive (archive.erowid.org) and some Rhodium pages.
If SHTF, I wonder if they would be willing to host a Vespiary mirror too?

When a forum has nearly 15,000 members I don't know if this recruit more all the time mentality is actually what is needed. As someone mentioned recently, the era of the drug chemistry forum has obviously peaked and is on the decline at this point. From what I can tell the overall quality of contributions has declined. Whether this is because of the general mentality prevalent these days or simply the mindset that it's all been done and why bother I don't know.
But the cold hard reality is that we have placed much of the knowledge of the entire human race at our fingertips, and looking around, I don't see that it is made the average person much smarter. In fact, quite the opposite.
There are only a handful of people here that are actually discussing anything interesting at all. The rest of it is speculation and reddit newbies.
I'm sure that this will be a very unpopular opinion, but it's mine and I own it.

I think I’d have to agree with this.  The low hanging fruit was gone a long time ago.  I myself have been quite busy but discussing mostly with people in other places.  Will have some exciting (novel) results to share soon - if we are all still here.

@xdragon apparently the captcha is working for new users either. There's 3 text boxes and the bottom one is blank, always giving an error. I tried making another account and encountered the same thing, couldn't figure out how to get past it
