YOU MUST BE AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE FORUMS TO PARTICIPATE!!!!!!!!!!!
(Noobs must be active for two months at the very least.)
(back to your regularly scheduled program)




ATTENTION NOOBS!!!

YOU MUST BE AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE FORUMS TO PARTICIPATE!!!!!!!!!!!

Background: This thread is designed to allow new members to get a good sampler of cigars from an experienced smoker. It also has the underlying intent of fostering the brotherhood whereas an experienced smoker provides mentorship and advice about which cigars are in (their) opinion the best out there. Listed below are “Some” specifics that will help us to get started. And lately it has been about the destruction of Noob’s mailboxes. I am interested in feedback, especially if there is something that I did not clearly articulate.

Explanation: What is the Newbie Sampler?

A specific thread where a Newbie (or anybody new to CBID) can trade for a variety of Cigars. The experienced guy would help the Newbie decide which cigars best fits his tastes based upon the feedback from the Newbie and would tell the Newbie what he would want in return for the sampler. The Newbie would get the “experienced” guy what he wanted and the "experienced" guy would send the Newbie a nice package of assorted cigars. This includes having the Newbie purchase cigars for or from you.

Benefits: Why would I want to trade with these people?

1. First and foremost, time and money will be saved by the new person.
2. The new person will receive a large variety of smokes. All of which have been well maintained and are not dog rockets.
3. Mentoring from an experienced cigar smoker.
4. A start to a good trader rep on Cbid

Mechanics: How is the trade going to work?

There will be a list of experienced smokers that I will maintain on the Newbie sampler thread. A new person would post that they are interested in getting a sampler. The experienced trader would post on the thread PM sent and reply to the Newbie. The deal would then be handled between the two people and the experienced trader would update the thread by posting Newbie trade completed with (insert tag here).
This will allow everyone to see the progress of the Newbie thread.

Summary: If the trade does not work out where both people are totally satisfied then either or both parties can contact me and I will do my best to make it right.

VETS: Please stay in for a rotation of 3 noobs then you can decide if you still want to be in.

Remember noobs this is not in any way about how much you send to your vet, there is no need to feel like you need to impress us. This is more about trading credibility and making friends.

Have fun!!!!!!

Bsadler,
It looks like FGM made the call and with that I will be taking you on as one of my noob horde! That adds a little more umph to this retaliation package I will be putting together. What I need now is a pm with a little bit more about you, your SSN, date of birth, and your mother's maiden name. Seriously, just an additional PM with a little about yourself will do.

Ray,

I'm up for a little trading if you need another Vet. One previous Noob is still hanging around, the other has left the building....Been here so long I never had a Vet to call my own. I guess somebody had to get the party started.

Sheesh, if Zody is a nOOb, what are the rest of us? Super nOObs?

FGM- Looks like my PO fumbled the ball, I dropped off Wednesday, but shows "picked up" Thursday... Not the first time this has happened to my shipments.

I hope it makes it out ahead of the storm rolling in tonight.

Breaking with tradition and sending to Noob first. I will be out of pocket for a week so I launched first.
DC # 9405 5118 9956 3589 9501 86

Besides - Covfireman is moving shortly so wanted to be sure he got the SFR before he changed locations on me. Enjoy and welcome to the madness.
