I hear that Facebook has been in the process of closing cigar groups without recourse because they don’t like the cigar forums; and so because their regulations forbid the sale of tobacco products they’ve just been arbitrarily deciding that they all sell tobacco products and shutting them down.
In light of this, I just want to remind the world out there that Smoking Jacket Magazine has its own Forum! We haven’t been active for a while, but we do have places for pipe smoking discussion, cigar discussion, smoking basics & beginner questions, and a topic of particular concern for us, tobacco legislation. If you’re looking for a place to come and chat where you know we’re not going to shut you down, we do have one!
You have to register for the forum with your name and email, but it’s simple, and we also approve all members so give us a day or two to do that. It’s a lot like the old fashioned message boards some of you may remember from the time before Facebook. So it doesn’t have a bunch of games to distract you; just discussion with people who share your interests! It also has the advantage of letting you type what you have to say for as long as you want; no character limit and it doesn’t make it into a Note that nobody reads if you go over. We also have a Feedback thread if you want us to add things or make changes. Want a snuff takers’ forum? A place to review books? A place to post about accompaniment suggestions? A place to link your blogs or your brand-new handmade pipes for our perusal? Let us know!
I promise that if a bunch of people join and get active on the forum, then I will too. 🙂
And don’t forget that time is running out for our Spring Easter Contest! Contest details provided at the link. Three great prizes are up for grabs, but the deadline is April 30, so don’t wait too long!
