Hello everyone and welcome to our March 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.
February was busy in the back room. You’ll see below the extra features we’ve added for you, and our busy team of Moderators have been doing their endless work tirelessly, keeping the website free from spammers and trolls and ensuring that the positive energy that we foster is not disrupted.
We are also delighted to welcome our new and renewing sponsors, who 420 Magazine continues to attract. We thank them all. Details below.
We continue to put on many new members. To you we say “Welcome!”. 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. Many of you also help us by reporting spam and other infractions, which is much appreciated as we cannot be everywhere. 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.
Website Upgrade – More Features
Last month we announced the new features introduced in the website upgrade. You can find all the details here – Website Upgrade: New Features.
We are continuing to add improvements and details. Here are this month’s extras.
You’ll see in the emoji post reactions, you now have Like, Thanks, Love, HaHa, Wow, Sad and Angry.
A brand new members’ feature is the option to hide your signature. You’ll fine it at the bottom left of your own reply box.
This will be particularly useful for those members running LED sponsored grow journals, as our guidelines stipulate you should not post in journals sponsored by a competitive LED manufacturer and threads started by other LED sponsors, unless you are invited by the sponsor or the grower themselves. This is viewed as cross advertising and fishing for customers, especially when someone forgets to turn off their signature.
This new function makes adhering to this guideline super-simple, as with one click you can hide your signature.
Once again, thanks to our Tech Team for all their hard work.
