420 Magazine Website News: September 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. It’s September already, and we’re seeing some great outdoor journals where, in the Northern Hemisphere, flowers are rapidly turning to buds. Meanwhile, in the back room, our worldwide Moderation team have been doing their usual sterling job, dealing with the spammers, helping members with any on-site problems and working round the clock to keep the website full of the positive energy that we encourage in order to further our mission. Our terrific Spambot Patrol continue to sweep the site clean of those pesky posters. It’s all in order to create an environment where 420 knowledge, information and ideas can be freely and happily exchanged and shared.

Thanks to those members who report spambots, spam and other infractions too. 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

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 Moderator
Please join us in welcoming Mike Connor formerly known as Sneaky Snids to Moderator Team 420!

Mike’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 instrumental in assisting others with finding what they are seeking and playing peacemaker to our community. His passion for cannabis shines very bright and we are looking forward to having his energy in the back with us.

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.

You can personally welcome Mike here – Special Thanks & Please Welcome Mike Connor To The 420 Staff!

Tech Updates
Thanks to a member’s report, we’ve been able to correct a problem which caused some browsers to report “mixed content”. Whilst our app inserts images with https, our gallery software inserted images with http. Our programmers have now resolved the inconsistency, so if you’ve been bugged by this message you won’t see it any longer.

As a reminder by the way, we always recommend using Google Chrome to get the best on-site experience.

If you spot any potential bugs or problems, please do report them to our team, either by using the report button at the bottom of every post, dropping any Moderator a Private Message or by sending an email to support@420magazine.com.

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 MonthNug 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
