• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

Maybe turn on more board options?

If the site admin wants to increase participation consider turning on some of the other commonly used interactive vBulletin board options.

The thanks button is very popular (let's posters know their comments were read and liked, there is a reason most all platforms utilize those "like" options, people post more when they get that obvious positive feedback). The current reputation button is nice but too discreet and probably not used nearly as much as a "like" button would be.

And since there are LOTS of sections that are hard to track, maybe turn on the features that notify posters when a post is quoted/liked or their name is mentioned with an @ sign etc... That makes it easy for returning visitors to respond to posts they might not otherwise see/notice, plus allows posters to "call out" to specific posters to get their opinions on a topic or bring them into a conversation.

But if the various notification options are turned on please make sure the default is NO email notification, else the board members will go nuts when their mail boxes are suddenly flooded.
