Hello everyone and welcome to our January Members Update.
Happy New Year to you all.
This monthly post is to keep you informed about what’s been 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.
Firstly, may we wish all our members and guests, and their families and friends, health and happiness for 2022.
A special “Welcome!” to all the new members over the last month.
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. Welcome New Members – Please Read Before Posting
And why not post a little bit about yourself in our Introduce Yourself forum? It’s a great way to start conversations and get initial guidance.
It’s a great way to start conversations and get initial guidance.
As we do every month, 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. Many of you also help us by reporting spam and other infractions, which is much appreciated as we cannot be everywhere. Your support does not go unnoticed. Thank you all!
Reporting the spammers and spambots, who try to take advantage of 420 Magazine’s reach at the expense of our paying sponsors and our members, is a great help to our busy team. Please do remember – one report per spammer please. We can quickly find everything we need from a single report. Multiple reports on multiple posts of the same spammer from the same member actually increases our workload in the back. Thanks!
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.
Software Update: The “Ignore” Feature
we removed a script that was designed to allow members to “ignore” each other. The script did not allow us to stop members from ignoring admins/mods, so it became an issue for us being able to moderate. Meanwhile, the forum software developer has evolved and actually added the feature into the software, without the use of an added script. You can see the “Ignore” button on anyone’s profile, except for staff.
You can find detailed information on how you use it in our Members Support forum, here – How To Ignore A Member
Official Sponsored Grow
You can be sure of an unbiased analysis from our Official Product Reviewer, Brett Blaze. He’s just begun a sponsored grow, 420 Magazine Official NextLight LED Grow Journal By Brett Blaze, supported by sponsors NextLight, GeoFlora Nutrients, Sierra Natural Science and Purpinator. Follow along and see how Brett does.
420 Magazine Store
It’s up and running here – 420 Magazine Store. Currently in stock, we have some very cool 420 Magazine mugs, stickers and those sought-after 420 Magazine T Shirts. Nug jars coming very soon. It’s all tip-top quality. No cheapo, foreign manufactured goods here. Unfortunately, PayPal continue being a problem in not allowing payments. Despite medical cannabis being legal in 36 Sates, recreational use legal in 18 States and a further 13 States having decriminalized cannabis use, PayPal have not yet caught up. We’ve all still got much work to do. Help support our Mission and pick up some awesome 420 goodies.
Your Experiences At 420 Magazine
We’ve got a new thread for our members to share how much they have learned, gained, grown and/or experienced from their membership at 420 Magazine. We hope that patients, activists, growers, fans of the flower, friends of 420 Magazine, or even reformed LEO will post their experiences here for others to learn from and celebrate.
420 Magazine Job Opportunities
We are currently vetting applications from members for a product reviewer position. Thank you very much to those who have volunteered their time to support our mission. You’ll understand that we have to be careful about who we allow in the back, so we’ll be replying to you in due course. You can also send a resume to email@example.com
We would like to thank the following new and renewing sponsors who this month have signed up for another year. We are truly grateful for their support because without them, 420 Magazine would not be the free resource that it is.
Please check out their websites and support those who support us.
