If anyone reads this news, at least once a month, then I hereby regret to inform you that @ewkaw, @qurator / @curangel / @tipu / #monomad curator and host of the #fungifriday - has resigned as a moderator, due to personal disagreements between us about what is good and what is bad. I was not given the certain information, but I am confident she remains a mushroom lover and assume she will continue to support the said challenge (probably not within this community).

not a big news

Up to date we are 1131 subscribers (some are fake or alternates, lets face the truth), 134 active posters, had 600 interactions and $822 rewards last week. Community account reached the total power of 6000 HP (@solominer, @qwerrie, @sketch.and.jam, @einfachnathi & others to thank for their delegation). You are welcome to delegate part of what you earn here, to grow together better.

As you may know from previous posts, FL is a part of @OCD community incubation program. In brief, it means @OCD encourages hiveans to post to dedicated communities by giving back nice upvotes for great posts.

Authors social activity is also an important aspect for OCD curation. We don't want to reward those who take it for granted and don't give back to community and appreciate what they get by engaging with both their own posts and others (short 'thanky' messages or dumb smiley shit doesnt count).

If you come here to earn crypto - ok, good for you! its a cozy place to share the stuff. You also will be getting upvotes from FL community account. But if you dont engage with others, preferring to milk it up and give nothing back... Well, dont ask yourself or mods then, why your posts bring so little.

@anzirpasai brought some marvelous Reishi mushrooms macro shots. The global reishi mushroom market was valued at $3,097 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $5,060 million by 2027, which is amazing! I wish someone would shape an observe post about all spheres of application of this amazing "mushroom of immortality". It has played an important role as a medicinal mushroom in Chinese and Japanese culture for at least 2000 years, did you know that?

A little post by @arhat educates us about a very edible and very tasty (delicious!) umbrella fungus. Macrolepiota procera is the name.

@sumaiya777 made some very enjoyable macro captures of a nameless fungi.. I couldnt resist the temptation to use it to design the current #22 FL digest cover.

Know your enemy! ...and know your friends as well. @lilideleopolis brought in some nice captures of Amanita rubescens, a conditionally edible mushroom, that knowledgeable mushroom pickers consider it to taste very good, and love it because it appears already at the beginning of summer. Looks like a scary toxic toadstool, but its not!

@marianomariano educated us about Greenish fly agaric (Amanita phalloides) - deadly toxic mushroom (death after 20 grams! do know your enemy...)

@yetaras educated us about Gomphus clavatus, commonly known as pig's ears or the violet chanterelle, -- a less known edible mushroom.

@sketch.and.jam was a day late for #FungiFriday, but brought in a very enjoyable stuff: chicken of the woods, slime mold, and more - check for yourself, if you did not yet.

🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄

We still have #FungiFriday, this fun challenge, hold by ewkaw. I hope many of you will join, as there are only 2 simple rules:

  • when Friday comes, share your fungi with us! post your own, original photo/drawing/art/food/anything-at-all of any type of fungi (yes, stolen images will be checked and reported !)
  • add #fungifriday (not necessarily must be your 1st tag), and post any community you like. that's all!

Hey, is this community a good place to post photos of found wild fungi to be identified? Asking for the benefit of a new user that's pretty intimidated by the Hive

hi there

you say, he is intimidated -- in what sense? is he scared with strict or complex rules, or what?

this is a good place to post about mushrooms. one may post here anything you want, art, cooking recipes, just beautiful pictures and photos. of course, the plagiarism rules apply to our community as well. if your friend posts other people's photos, he will have to clearly indicate the source where the material was taken from.

and I can name two more names: Natural medicine / Amazing nature communities.

will there be answers to his questions? it is possible but not guaranteed. as in the whole blockchain, there are more authors than readers here, and just a few of them are mushroom experts :)

I'm sure, if your friend's only interest is in identifying of specific species, then he may find other better places (outside of the Hive blockchain) that will be better tailored for this. actually it depend on the species. some are very easy and all are in the know, other are 'god knows what it is" and need a microscope and spore print.

well - my best wishes!

Hi @qwerrie, thanks for your reply

Their words: it's all very hard. Referring to the interface of Ecency. I think with time and patience they'll come around. Just very used to traditional social media like Farcebook and finding change difficult and unappealing...

Of course, no guarantees 🙂

Yeah okay, the ID was my idea . They sent a photo of some mushrooms found in a pot plant this morning and I was all like: Hey! You should post that to Hive. Someone might be able to ID it! There's a Fungi Lovers community

Just trying to encourage a move away from Web 2.0 social media I suppose... 😅

Thank you!

we recently had the very same post from @a0i, who got all of a sudden something Amanita-like in his flower pot indoors. amazing.

just my advise - write a story, maybe around it, maybe not - and add the question to it (on a visible spot ;) not just drop a pic with question and thats it, lets wait for result ;) this type of post would be less rewarding and benefittable, I think..

Referring to the interface of Ecency.

I can agree with this. that friend should also try Peakd.com!
