Hello everyone and welcome to our February Members Update.
This monthly post is to keep you informed about what’s going on behind the scenes at 420 Magazine during the last few weeks, introducing you to our valued new and renewing sponsors and highlighting our monthly contest winners.
To the influx of new members we are experiencing – You have joined the friendliest, most mature and comprehensive Cannabis and Hemp website in the world. In return we’d simply ask that you spend a few moments reading our Posting Guidelines. It helps us no end if you can stick to these: it reduces the time we need to spend moderating and advising, allowing us the space to continue maintaining, developing and adding to the website itself.
We’ve also added a handy shortlist of links which answer the most common “how to” questions about posting and to help you get the most out of 420 Magazine. Helpful Links For New Members
And why not post a little bit about yourself in our Introduce Yourself thread? It’s a great way to start conversations and get initial guidance.
We’d like to extend our special thanks to those members who take the time and trouble to voluntarily welcome members who introduce themselves. They show and share great 420 Magazine positive vibes. Thank you all!
We always say that we wouldn’t be here without our Sponsors, however it’s equally true that 420 Magazine wouldn’t be such a great mission without you, our members. We are always grateful for your presence, contributions, positive energy and spirit of helping others.
The big news this month is the new website upgrade. We have listened to members’ problems and requests and introduced some fantastic features which we hope will enhance your experience here.
There are now Push Notifications, the ability to upload tables, (a frequent request from members), new smilies and a more sophisticated set of “Like” responses, plus bookmarks and URL unfurling.
You can find all the details here – Website Upgrade: New Features
We would like to thank our Tech Team, who so hard implementing and testing these features.
