Grow diaries are accessible to anyone. If you decide to start your diary in private lounge that is your decision and your risk.
We have decided to open Private lounge only for active members. Seed runs don’t need to be tied necessarily on current trust level. It can be tied to tl at the moment of signup or at the moment of closing the seed run.
I am not discussing at all, I have no grow diary for the same reason, it is also illegal to grow in my country. I just pointed out a situation in a civilized way, seems it is not easy now to expose some personal thoughts about general questions, even an algorithm now is sacred, have a great day …
But is there a rule in place at the moment one way or the other? While I can see reasons for both ways, a practical thing is, nobody knows their tl at the end when they sign up at the beginning. There are free member slots anyway, it’s not like I would be out of the game. It would just mean useless editing work for several topics. And then again if I accidentally get the regular status back. If I’m taking away anyone’s place I’m happy to step back from a run.
There are supposed to be two tiers in each seed-run. One for Members and one for Regulars (which have the priority over Members).
Once you reach status of Regular, you should have the privilege to participate in seed runs in Regulars tier forever.
I was suggesting to identify privileged members by looking at their Regular badge.
The problem is now that system is no longer functioning the same way. Promoting a demoting users is automatic and it does assign or remove Regular badge with the trust level.
So we will have to find out some new way to identify privileged members. For now I’d recommend to trust the user that he will insert himself into proper tier/category for each seed run and only verify it at the time of addition to the according list. (Owner of the post and also each member tracking the topic will get notification about OP post edit so they can briefly check the new participant.)
Just throwing this out there-- maybe no one should send any more shipments to Mom on the Run until we hear back from her?
Clearly she is swamped, I don’t think adding to the work load will do any good.
The more lines that get combined into one package, the higher the risk if that package is lost or damaged. I don’t think it would be ideal to keep combining new projects with the spring preservation box.
I’d suggest that breeders hold on to any finished projects until distribution of the current seed runs is complete.
I and others have also reached out and tagged some of you on my seed run and not been given any guidance on what to do with my seed run seeds - nobody contacted me after I tagged you, and MOTR hasn’t replied to my last two PMs since August.
I also have Wolfpack F2 from @Greenhighlander that I agreed to send out with each of my Pura Vida F2, so it’s not just my seeds that are languishing.
