This place used to be ok but now it’s a ghost town. 3MG was the best Michigan forum by far, I was pretty bummed out when it went down. I’m looking into starting a dedicated Michigan forum in the vein of 3MG. Breeder section, journals, giveaways, live chat, raffles, calssifieds, auctions,etc. Tried to gift something here a couple months ago and almost got banned for something legal lol.

Anyway, yeah I miss when these forums were booming. Was a pretty fun way to blow off steam and talk about something a lot of people shared a passion for. I met quite a few really cool people from here back years ago. It’s a shame this is what it’s come to.

On a side note, what’s up The man, long time no see buddy.

@Motorbuds I'm still kicking. This year I've been looking through a breeding I did back 2016: NASA Glue (Gorilla Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4)

I must admit I miss 3MG and that group as well. Sadly forums in general have not fared well in recent years as our community seems to have embraced newer technologies like Instagram and Facebook.

Whose ready for Halloween 2020?

Yeah I’ve noticed that as well but I think it’s because the forums that exist are garbage. It’s like you can’t really get together and form relationships. No transactions, no chat rooms, if you dare talk about giving something to someone or trading or anything automatic ban. It actually seems like it was less strict back in the medical days before it was DECRIMINALIZED.

It’s just an exaggerated punishment system for something that is legal almost everywhere now. Like they’re stuck in the 90s. We need a good modern forum.

On another note, damn you’ve got some cannons rolled there lol.

@Motorbuds I feel the historical camaraderie between the black (rec) and gray (medical) markets nationwide as we faced an obscene "criminal justice system" that made the crazy early medical laws around the country like our MMMA work/survive may have past. It's like we are veterans of a long forgotten war taken for granted by those that can now purchase/use cannabis like alcohol through taxation/regulation. Furthermore many of us now see each other as competitors under these new state licensing schemes. It's kind of sad, but at least we have some fond memories :bigjoint:

Yeah that’s true man it’s fond memories and water under the bridge lol.

I think forums still have a place though if they’re helpful and not like the gestapo. There are a lot of average people out there that are looking for help, info, and/or genetics. A good community usually has to be built upon with a few key members that actually contribute. I’m thinking about using phpbb as the base software. Another site I used to frequent uses that and it’s pretty streamlined and works well. I wish I knew what 3MG used that was a really nice platform.

Anyway I’m kind of blown out and I don’t want to keep rambling lol. Just pulled this down earlier today, only a few but I’m not doing big numbers these days. Those days are in the past.

@Motorbuds It seems most of the forums still around and/or active are based on seed sales/breeders. I still visit ICmag and Z-Labs pretty regularly. I've also heard of some newer ones popping up like the BeanBasement recently, but haven't looked much into it. They require a grow journal to fully join, that's a pretty interesting concept though. Sadly nothing local/Michigan specific any longer other than the old lawyer owned/operated/marketing MMMA.

Yeah and that site is a real dump lol. Most of the threads there haven’t been posted in for years. I met a few good people there though back in the day and actually was gifted some different strains that just came on the MI scene like bubba kush, etc.

Someone gifted me some free Leonard beans and that was one of the most unique smelling plants I’ve ever grown, still haven’t ever smelled anything like it, it was decent smoke I kind of wish I would’ve hung onto it.

When I joined in 2008 this place was jumping. Nowadays I monkey around in the hydro / LED thread. The LED section has some great knowledgeable guys that'll help you MacGyver anything you want to build. Then there are a handful of guys that ruin it for everyone. The Michigan thread in particular use to be off the hook active. Now it seems after legalization it's dead. It definitely isn't what it use to be. @TheMan13 , @silusbotwin ,and @Huel Perkins are the only people I even recognize anymore in the Michigan section. I've never traded any genetics with other growers. I Just like to talk about what strains are out there, growing techniques, and general bullshitting with people that are actually in my state. It feels like a community ya know? I have severe bi-polar disorder and a touch a schizophrenia, so I'm not much into face to face conversation as I do not prefer the company of other people. Without the forums I go completely dark. I don't do social media or any of that shit. I need this man :)

Latest harvest coming down now: The shots are of critical mass and black widow. Really love both strains from a grower's perspective. Heavy producers and required very little branch training.

Attic grow. I dig that dude! Maintaining ideal temp has to be an absolute bitch, but not having your grow tie up your living space is a huge plus. Ladies look great. Nice work man. I did the PVC frame once and didn't like it. I wound up going to garden stakes and wax string to tie off branches. I do a lot of screw in hooks to the ceiling then tie branches to those with wax string for support too. What strain is that?
