420 Magazine Website News: November 2017

420 Magazine

Welcome to our November update. It’s designed to give you a bit more insight into what’s been going on at 420 Magazine over the last few weeks.

Thanks to those members who report spambots, spam and other infractions. You are a great help to our busy team. To help both you and ourselves, there’s a new 420 Guidelines FAQ. So whether you’re a new or experienced spambot spotter, please check it out – Questions & Answers – How To Deal With Spambots. One key point we’d like to highlight is that you only need to report a single spambot once, however many posts it has made. Multiple reports of individual posts by the same bot actually end up adding to our workload. Thanks for your help and understanding.

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. New Member For Our Spambot Patrol
Many thanks to the many members who have responded to our appeal for more support for our Spambot Patrol team. We are delighted to announce that Chris Scorpio formerly known as Scorpio420 has joined our staff as a Spambot Patroler.

Chris’s spirit of volunteerism is inspiring and without the commitment of members like him, we would never be able to continue in our mission. He has been a great addition to our community and we are now looking forward to having him in the back with us.

Brother Chris, we are truly grateful for your 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. New Product Reviewers
Also this month we can announce two new Product Reviewers have joined our staff.

Please join us in welcoming Rich Farmer formerly known as BedroomFarmer and Ian Bastage formerly known as OldBastage!

Their amazing product reviews caught our attention and we just had to have them on the team. We’ve already got a few reviews lined up with products from some of of our Sponsors and are excited to see the results.

This is great news and will allow for a much higher number and turnover of official 420 Magazine Product Reviews, so we can share even more great books and products with our members.

We are truly grateful to our Brothers Ian and Rich for supporting our mission in this way.

Tech Updates
We are currently working hard on two bugs in our 420 Magazine app.

Notifications are getting stuck for some members. It’s a tricky glitch because it is erratic, however there will be an app update coming soon which will address this problem. We do understand that it’s frustrating, and we thank you for your patience.

Secondly, on-site links are getting garbled in our Private Message system. This is equally frustrating. Believe us when we tell you that we are in daily contact with the platform provider to resolve this. Again, thank you for your patience.

Human Resources: Job Opportunities
If you are interested in helping to support our Mission, please do check out our Human Resources forum.

Social Networking Moderator
Our new social networking moderator, Matty Hemp is posting half a dozen photos from our archives every day on Instagram. If anyone has any photos they’d like featured, please feel free to contact him via PM, through our Instagram channel or at matty@420magazine.com

We are pleased to announce that November’s Sponsor of the Month is GROWant.

GROWant are a relatively new sponsor; however they are already active in the forums in an appropriate and tasteful manner, have a number of sponsored grows in progress and have recently been a generous sponsor in a number of our contests.

We are truly grateful for their support.
