Hello everyone and welcome to our March Members Update.

Sorry that we missed last month’s update. Your author was getting a couple of cataracts out his eyes. And all is good.

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, however, we passed a little milestone last week. We hit 420,000,000 messages. (You can see the figure under Forum Statistics on our Forums Page). We don’t know who posted the one that tipped us over, but we send our love and thanks to every single past and present member whose work, knowledge, learning and sharing have promoted and supported our Mission. Thank you.

As a result of sterling behind-the-scenes work relating to our SEO by staff including my colleague Amadeus Forzin, we are seeing a huge influx of new members, so “Welcome!” to you all.

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.

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!

We would also like to thank those members who take a moment to report the spammers and spambots, trying to take advantage of 420 Magazine’s reach at the expense of our paying sponsors and our members. It’s a great help to our busy team when you see and report such activity. Just remember – one report per spammer please. Multiple reports on multiple posts from the same spammer from the same member actually increase our workload in the back. We can quickly find everything we need from a single report.

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.
