Welcome to the 420 Magazine Member of the Month Contest.

420 Magazine would like to include not only our valued growers, but also more of our non-growing members in this contest. We are by no means excluding growers from the Member of the Month Contest, but we feel that our Plant and Nug Contests are already serving these members pretty well. Please help and support us in this effort.

Specifically, we're looking to thank those members that help and support our site in so many under recognized ways, such as:

  • Greeting new members
  • Helping people with questions
  • Peacemakers
  • Activism efforts
  • Promoting our sponsors
  • Activity and content generation
  • Reporting violations
420 Magazine Staff will select nominees, members determine the winner by poll. This does not prohibit members from suggesting nominations to a Moderator via private message. When doing so, include detailed reasoning for your nomination. Please do not nominate or suggest nominations in the contest thread, or it will be deleted without notice.

The contest will be open from the 1st until the 14th at midnight PST. At one minute past midnight on the 15th, we will begin voting for a winner.

The winner earns 420 rep points, "Member of the Month" title, 420 Mag T-Shirt, Bic 420 Magazine Lighter, 420 Mag Stickers, 420 Magazine Magnet, Medium 420 Magazine Nug Jar and Small 420 Magazine Nug Jar!

With so many contests and even more winners, we unfortunately don't have the time and resources to offer organizing the 'gifting' of prizes anymore. Due to the nature of numerous, confusing logistics involved, delivery times get pushed back weeks waiting for everyone to reply with contact information, which causes delays in getting prizes to everyone. This causes a massive drain on our resources when everyone starts asking where their prizes are and why it's taking so long, some have even gone as far as to complain in public about us being lazy stoners, which couldn't be further from the truth. Mistakes in translations have also occurred, wasting valuable time, energy & shipping costs. Obviously you may pass prizes on yourself, and you are more than welcome to contact the sponsor yourself with a 'gifting' request.

Monthly winners are automatically eligible for our prestigious "Member of the Year" contest, held in January.

Contest Guidelines:

1. Members must have at least 50 posts to be entitled to vote.

2. 420 Magazine staff members submit nominees and rational in the contest thread.

3. Promotion (i.e. campaigning) for yourself or a friend, or any attempt at voting more than one time per person (i.e. multiple user names, etc.) is considered cheating and is prohibited. Promotion also includes family and friends who register a new account for voting purposes. Campaigning in any form - including but not limited to mentioning the nomination in any thread outside the contest and campaigning via PMs - will result in the member being removed from the month's contest. A second instance, either in a different contest during the same month or in any future contest, will attract a lifetime ban from all future contests.

4. Past winners are ineligible for 6 months from date of win.

5. Staff members from this or any other cannabis forum/community will not be nominated.

6. In accepting the Member of the Month title, prize(s), and the respect of the members, the winner agrees to wear his/her title with honor and to continue to set the example with his/her actions and posting behavior. To retain the Member of the Month title, the winner must remain compliant with contest rules and site guidelines.

Contests Are Legitimate: Now that votes are publicly visible, it should be obvious who is voting. We have endless ways of discovering cheating and are always successful. If you are caught cheating, your entry will be deleted and you'll be called out in the public thread, visible to everyone. Reason being that in the past, when we removed the offending entry without any announcement (to help minimize embarrassment for the member), it often led to uninformed (or worse, misinformed) members questioning our motives and calling us censorship nazi's. More often than not, the cheater themselves would claim innocence, causing a higher workload for our staff. For these reasons, we now alert the community of what happened, to save all the confusion and massive workload on our team.

Voting From Mobile Device: In contests with polls, it is not possible to vote using the 420 Magazine mobile app directly. You can vote from a smartphone by choosing "Web View" on the app and viewing 420 Magazine in the "Desktop version" on your mobile browser. You may have to pinch outwards to zoom in close enough for comfortable voting. If this process is not suitable, please log in from a PC or Laptop until we get this feature added to the app.

And the nominations for Member of the Month - July 2017 are:

"TorturedSoul is a long-term member and although I see he won MOTM years ago, he definitely deserves another shot. He's all over 420 Magazine offering good advice and positive comments." "I see him in News, in journals, drug testing and helping out in FAQs. He sets a great example with his attitiude." "He's been really helpful to me and deserves to win. He's also very funny, which counts for a lot."

"Gidoux is always there to answer anyone questions. He shares really valuable tutorials for how to help someone when they ask. His pictures are clear and make noobs like myself pay attention close enough to learn valuable tricks. He always participates and has great leadership skills. I feel like he is worthy of Member of the Month."

"Oldbear doesn't post a lot but when he does, it's with thoughtfulness and a helping hand and, to me, that's what being a 420 member is meant to be." "I really look forward to seeing a post from Oldbear. He's great in the Oil Study thread. He is thoughtful, always willing to learn and passes his own knowledge on. A great 420 member."

"I can't believe DemonicAngel has never won MOTM. She's a busy woman, yet always takes the time to communicate and check in. She's got her own great journal, contributes in other peoples' and has a good spirit." "She's been really encouraging to me and helped me stop worrying and keep growing." "Her posts in 420 FAQs are worth a nomination on their own."

"Scientific is Mr FAQs at the moment. He's always supporting, guiding and helping new and established growers alike. I don't think anyone on 420 Magazine has helped more people more consistently over the past few months. I think that's what 420 Magazine is all about."

Old TimingMan
"I would like to nominate Old TimingMan for Member of the Month. This man is truly awesome, compassionate, understanding and especially full of help. I understand he is a rather new member, but he has behaved over and above for me, and he has also helped others as well. Not to mention the fact that he is a great guy to be around!"

"To me, Dr.h00k is part of what 420 Magazine is all about. He's a great active member of our community. He's always positive, participates in the contests and posts around in lots of journals. He helps new members and growers a lot too." "I think Hook deserves a nomination for Member of the Month. He's very active on the site and also knows his stuff. There's just nothing bad about him - as far as I know!"

Congratulations to all our worthy nominees. Winners all of course. But there can only be one.


Thank you too everyone for sending in your nominations. If your candidate didn't make this final cut, please remember that the staff here have the final say in this shortlist. And by far the most common reason for a member not making the final list is simply that they've already won MOTM within the past six months.
