Members can post their addresses in their Profiles. Only members who have been here for 90 days and have 100 posts, will have access to seeing these addresses. Before posting your address, please consider any possible repercussions this may have to you. Also, be aware that anyone posting their address on their profile is at the user's risk, and Puff.Com will not be responsible for any addresses that are used for spam or mailing lists.
You may also choose to use our Rolodex system. This is a more private way to post your address. It allows member to ask the Rolodex Keeper madurolover
for a specific member's address. You can send madurolover your address at any time, however you can not get someone's address until 60 days membership and 100 posts.
If you want to add your address, go to User Controls
. You'll find it in the Edit Options
of Your Control Panel
Posts made in the New Puffer section do not count toward your post count. This helps cut down on people getting large post counts by just saying "Welcome" over and over.
Trading of Cigars for our New Members
We ask new members to refrain from posting threads involving trades, sales, or buys with others, in any forum, except for the established threads that are already in place. The “Newbie Trade Sampler
” and the “Newbie PIF
“ are examples.
Are there other forums that I cannot see?
As you spend more time here, there may be other forums that open up to you. Good things will come to those who have established themselves in the forum.
Habanos Discussion and Want to Buy, Sell, or Trade Forums
You must have been a member of Puff.com for at least 90 days and you must have at least 100 post before you can post a new thread or reply to a thread in the Habanos Forums or any of the Want to Buy/S/T Forums.
Those that have already created threads prior to 1/14/10 that were under the limit will still be able to respond to the threads that they had already created. All of those deals will finish out and no one else will be able to create new threads or reply to a thread until they meet the requirement above.

Request to New Members
This is a request that will facilitate other interaction between new members and established members of this board. Please fill out your profile and at the very least, please put the country of residence in your profile. It does matter in the future when you interact with older members. "I took a noobie trade the other day not knowing where the new member was from. He turned out to be from Canada and I am from the USA. I would have passed the trade to an experienced member from Canada instead of having both of us having to deal with customs. Just a suggestion but please think about it. In the future I will not deal in a trade or bomb with a member whose country of origin is not in his profile. Thank you." -taltos
