Puff Awards are Here - FAQ

Hello Puff.com members we are announcing the creation of the Puff Awards system. Here on Puff.com we are always trying to bring fun things to the forums and here is one more.

Doing cigar reviews takes a great amount of time and really does help fellow members get an idea of cigars they may like. We have noticed that more and more members have been posting reviews for cigars so we would like to give these members some recognition for doing so. We have created a new awards system and the "Cigar Expert" award will be the first of various awards we will be giving out on Puff.com for those members that have taken the time to write reviews.

Awards will show up on the left side of your post under your avatar. See image below.



We have A TON of different types of awards. You can see all of them here:

https://www.puff.com/forums/vb/awards.php

How the system works and how to request your awards:

1. A member request an award they are eligible for on the following link which will be incorporated in different areas of the forum for easy finding. Puff Cigar Discussion Forums - Awards

2. The member list the links for the reviews they did using the Puff Review System or anywhere else within the puff forum.

3. A thread is automatically created in the mods section with all info on the request.

4. One of the admins/moderators will handle the awards from there. Once the award has been given you "the Puff member" will receive a Private Message letting you know you have received the award.

Example:
-------------------------------------------------------------
Congratulations! You have got a new award!
Puff Cigar Expert


Dear Stogie!

On behalf of Puff Cigar Discussion Forums, it is with great honor that I extend to you best wishes and congratulations as you are receiving Puff Cigar Expert award.

The reason that goes with your award is:
----------
Puff Cigar expert reviewer. This member has completed 25 separate cigar reviews on different sizes, blends, shapes and brands of cigars on Puff.com.

This is a test and only a test of the new awards system.
----------

Please check your profile for detail.


Thank you very much for your outstanding activity.

Best regards,
The Puff Cigar Discussion Forums staff
----------------------------------------------------------------------

5. Your Done

Very Important: This is only the first of the various kinds of awards we will create here on Puff.com. We will be bringing other types of awards on later to show recognition for the other great things each and every one of you members does to help this community.

Question: Does does doing 5 reviews on one cigar brand really make me an expert on that cigar brand?
Answer: No but it is fun to do and making the limit higher would not be as much fun for the members.

Question: What happens if the brand I am eligible is not there?
Answer: Contact Stogie and he will create an image and award for your cigar brand you a eligible for.

Question: Why are you doing this?
Answer: It is fun and it reminds me of collecting baseball cards, I had to have them all.

Re: Puff Awards are Here - FAQ

hmm, interesting. I don't do many reviews due to my unrefined palette, but I do see some value in this.

That is funny but if you do 5 reviews I will make that award for sure you even might be one of the few with that award.
