420 Magazine Website News: May 2017


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. April was another very busy month. We mentioned last month that our membership is taking further leaps forward – a mark of the growing worldwide awareness of our beloved herb. Well last month we hit a new record – the most users ever online was 26,174, 04-20-2017 at 05:29 PM! We hope you all had an amazing holiday, filled with lots of love and positive energy.

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 positive energy 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
Although we mentioned it last month, we’ve had a few queries so it’s worth noting again that currently you cannot register via the app. New members must register via web browser, avoiding the confusing and mysterious process of non working validation links. We are still working with our app developer to resolve this issue so members can register via the mobile app, however this workaround is the best we can do meanwhile.

We have been ironing out bug reports and improving the app – a new version 5.3.18 has recently been released – and also working on a faster system for our Moderators to delete photos uploaded via mobile that don’t meet our Guidelines.

We are proud of our focused, on-topic website full of good energy, so anything that makes the Mod’s jobs a little easier in doing so is valuable. It’s the sort of thing that keeps 420 Magazine as the gold (green?) standard.

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.

New Staff Member: Ron Strider, News Moderator
Please join us in welcoming Ron Strider into his new News Moderator position!

Being the first person in Nevada to receive his medical Cannabis card, Ron is a long term advocate for our mission and is excited to get involved in helping us make change. He now takes on a brand new role of educating our readers as head of our News Department, something he has taken great pride in and takes very seriously. His passion for cannabis shines very bright and we are looking forward to our future together – there couldn’t be a better match.

We are truly grateful for Ron’s help in our mission to create Cannabis awareness to the world, so that we may end these laws and get all of our brothers and sisters out of jail.

Spambot Patrol
We’d like to extend a very public ‘Thank You’ to our super Spambot Patrol – Dwight Monk, Curly Beaver and Dave Groomer. They are doing an absolutely splendid job keeping all those waves of spam at bay. If they’re doing it well, their work is almost invisible. And they are – so it is! We thank them all.

Thanks to those members who report spam (and other infractions) too. You are a great help to our busy team.
