Archive: Pipe Forum: new members (introduce yourself)
 
Edit: looks like this could be an "intro thread" for new members of the pipe forum. so, let's hear how you found us and a little bit about yourself.

--original post below--
okay, so over the past month we've seen a LARGE number of newer members show up to the ClubStogie pipe forum. not just new to smoking pipes that are longtime cigar smokers and current CS members, but new members here for the pipe section.

that's cool, no complaints here (i've been out of the loop a bit lately, haven't had time to ask)...

what i want to know is: WHY DID YOU ALL CHOOSE CLUBSTOGIE?
are you members of another board and heard of this place and figured you'd take a look?
were you lurkers and figured it was a nice enough place?

i'm curious, haven't seen this large of an influx of new members strictly for the pipe forum before.
i'd like to know what we're doing right to draw you all here so we don't fluck it up in the future. ;)

As for me Greg,

Been here almost 2 years now. To be honest.....I really don't remember how exactly I ended up here (it had to be a search off Yahoo way back when).

I enjoy cigars alot, but for me.......the Pipe World is a very interesting thing. There are so many beautiful pieces out there to collect and use.....over and over again, unlike a cigar (all there is is a band and memories) Plus......the tobacco blends seem numerous and each one has it's own niche.

I like the Pipe forum alot !! Everybody has been helpful and very informative in their posts, which makes it easier for a "pipe newb" to follow and understand.

Well, I joined in November but as I recall I randomly found CS while googling for pipe websites. I found a couple other pipe forums as well but this one looked to be the most active and had a nice looking interface. I perused some of the posts and it seemed like a friendly place so I joined.

I struggle to find local people in my area that are into pipes. There are plenty of cigar smokers but few that smoke the pipe.

I find it nice to be able to sit down and read everyones post and pics. Its my little pipe family. Also there is plenty to learn about my hobby here.

i was already a CS member (cigars)-picked the pipe back up to help me quit smoking cigarettes-the old lady won't go for cigars in the house, but she ok'd the pipe-the days when i really want to appreciate one, i won't smoke the other

I've been a CS member for about 18 months and I was at a mini-herf with a few guys and tried bongoy's pipe and decided that I needed another thing to dump money into lol.

For me it was the first google result for "pipe forum." Being young, and someone who uses a good number of forums it's a natural thing to immediately search for a forum relating to whatever topic. This one happened to also be a very good one, so I was happy with that. I lurked on and off for a while (probably since at least june, maybe earlier) and just decided to join when I started checking the forum more and more often, and realized that I'd been smoking long enough to really contribute answers to some threads, instead of just having questions of my own.

Have been a member here at CS for a while. Thought I would check out the pipe section and it seemed like you guys were enjoying yourselves. Figured I would pick up a pipe and some tobacco to see what the fuss is all about. I really love the pipe and all the 'rituals' asscocated with it. Thanks for making us new guys feel appreciated.
