Welcome to our monthly update, designed to give you a bit more insight into what’s been going on at 420 Magazine over the last few weeks. May was as busy as ever. Our worldwide Moderation team have been working round the clock to keep the website full of the positive energy that we encourage in order to further our mission, and our great Spambot Patrol continue to sweep the site clean of those pesky posters.
Thanks to those members who report spam (and other infractions) too. You are a great help to our busy team. A note for those of you who report spambots for us. You only need to report a specific spambot once – multiple reports of posts from the same bot actually creates more work. So thank you – but just the one report please!
Welcome to visitors and new members alike. Thank you for being part of Our Mission.
If you are a fresh face here, please do take a moment and read our Posting Guidelines. They are there to help and protect you and to keep 420 Magazine full of the spirit of knowledge-sharing, friendship and good vibes that we all work so hard to preserve.
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. Tech Updates
We have implemented another forum software upgrade and the new version of our App is now available for download from Google or iTunes, with a host of small issues now fixed.
• Fixed some inline images don’t load
• Fixed some links can’t open in app bug
• Fixed intermittent https connection issues
• Fixed notification count synchronisation issue
• Fixed multi attachment in one post cannot be downloaded locally
• Performance improvement
• Minor bug and crash issues fixed
As always, please let us know by sending us a report if you encounter any strange bugs or glitches, by clicking the report icon at bottom left of every post. For those not familiar, it’s a little triangle with an exclamation point inside. If it’s something that can’t be included in a report, please post it in the Bugs Reports Forum.
Due to public demand, we have created a third dedicated sub-form under Hydroponic Gardening. As well as Aeroponics and Deep Water Culture – DWC, we now have Ebb & Flow. Post your questions, photos, thoughts, insights and observations on Ebb & Flow here.

Join Our 420 Magazine Contests
420 Magazine runs five contests each month, celebrating our members and their work. You don’t have to be an experienced grower to enter – any member with a minimum of 50 posts may enter and vote in those with polls. There are some great prizes to win – exclusive 420 Magazine merchandise such as nug jars, t-shirts, lighters, magnets (which you can’t get hold of any other way), and some quality and high value goods from our sponsors too; lights, nutrients, vaporizers, seeds, gift certificates and much more.
Three of the contests have been running for years; Plant of the Month, Nug of the Month and Member of the Month.
Entries for Plant and Nug of the Month are accepted between the 1st and 15th of every month. Then until the end of the month, the polls are opened and members may vote for their favorite. They are great places to enjoy some of the finest work that 420 members have produced, and to share your own perfect plants and nifty nugs too!
The Member of the Month is chosen from a short-list of members’ nominations. Again, voting takes place between the 15th to the end of the month. It’s where you can say ‘thank you’ to a fellow member who you think has particularly embodied the positive sharing, helpful, compassionate and welcoming spirit of 420 Magazine.
We also have two newer contests – Grow Journal of the Month and our Creme de la Creme Photo Contest.
Grow Journal of the Month is selected by 420 Magazine staff members. All you have to do is start and maintain a journal of your grow. Keep it active, interesting, full of good photos and information and you’ll be in for a chance to earn some recognition and win some super prizes.
The Creme de la Creme Photo Contest runs across the whole month. You can enter either your own photographs or scour our Gallery of over a million pictures to pick what you think are the best. There are first, second and third place awards every month, so there are high chances of winning. Full details for entering are, (as with all the other contests), in the first post in the thread every month.
So if you fancy picking up a garden-full of great prizes, or just enjoy looking at some of the most beautiful plants and nugs produced on the planet, do check out our contests. They are fun and inspirational.
A Note On Voting From A Mobile Device
In contests with polls, it is not yet possible to vote using the 420 Magazine mobile app directly. You can vote from a smartphone by choosing “Web View” 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.
That’s it for this month. Thank you for being a valuable part of our Mission, we are truly grateful for you.
Sending you all lots of love and positive energy through the universe.
Your 420 Magazine Team
