• 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.

OK, we got this feature working properly today...

When you're reading through the forum and you come across a post that is especially helpful with the information it contains, you can nominate it to be put into a kind of "highlights" thread for each forum.

Recently, a member was having trouble with mold. Another member commented on a way to prevent mold that was ridiculously inexpensive. These are the types of post you should nominate.

When a post is nominated, a copy of the link to that post goes to a special forum where you can review the post. If you feel the post is of exceptional information, you can vote to have it placed in a highlights thread. Once the post receives 3 votes, it goes to the highlights thread.

You can't nominate your own post...you don't even get the option...sorry...and only members can nominate and vote. Because conspiricies aren't all that uncommon, the final decission to place the post in a special thread is up to the mods and admins.

Any questions?

Will there be a mechanism for adding a comment to a nominated post? For example, if a post is popular, but contains egregious errors, it would be handy to point that out.

I was actually hoping to keep the debate out of nominated posts since they originate without intent of becoming nominees. The nominees will be moderated and final approval is subject to mods/admins review of each post.
