NUGGETRY.com Has A Mini-Hiatus While Moving CPA

Comments2

As some may have noticed, some of the daily exclusive content which NUGGETRY.com members have become accustomed too (Videos etc.) has been given a mini vacation due to the recent Federal action in Santa Ana and it’s impact on (now closed) California Patient’s Association which was a virtual mecca (of sorts) for the cannabis community in Southern California.

As many know, NUGGETRY adapted to this change by closing 1 shop and opening 2 others (plus a delivery service) all within a manner of 2 weeks. What this meant was “all hands on deck”. Now that Fire Department in Anaheim and Natures Best Holistic in Garden Grove are flowing smoothly, attention can be put back into elements of the network where it was lacking the last couple of weeks. We thank you for your consideration and understanding.

 

NEVER FEAR!!!! NUGGETRY.com and Videos will be back this week!  In addition to Chubbs making videos via his “Ask Chubbs” video channel, all the regular folks that send it videos will be seen again!!! Whether it’s Snaptime with Hydro, Medtime with Matt, El Marijuano, Kobe4MVP23′s outdoor vids or some of LDog’s killer videos, you will get to see them all again.

 

We will be starting another NUGGETRY channel which will accomplish the following:

  • Make it easier for folks to upload their own videos
  • Simply provide the YouTube link or embed code
  • Get the benefit of getting views on YouTube AND via NUGGETRY TV
  • Faster Upload process to share your videos with the world and the NUGGETRY community.

 

Again, we thank you all for your patience and understanding and fighting with us during some times of adversity for the cannabis community.

 

Cheers!

New Home Page Makes NUGGETRY More User Personalized

Comment1

As many have noticed, the home page for NUGGETRY.com has changed. We understand that change is sometimes welcome and others difficult to embrace when you are used to a certain look and feel for so long. As the web changes, and our community grows, it was important to adapt and create a user experience that was more personal and inviting to new members. We ask for our long term and loyal community members to be patient and involved in this process. You made this community be what it is today and you will help take it to the next level.

The reasons for the homepage change(s) were not taken lightly and included:

  • Becoming more Web 3.0 and thusly more Google friendly
  • Easier for new users to navigate
  • Allow users to personalize their experience
  • Give a better picture to users of each of the robust sub-domains available to explore

 

Our old format (while fun and familiar) wasn’t nearly as search engine friendly and progressive as it needed to be in order to reach as many people (worldwide) in the cannabis community as possible. If you aren’t growing (no pun intended) then you run the risk of becoming stagnant and being left behind. It was in the interest of being on the forefront of change (not reacting too it) that the homepage was changed to be a better reflection of the NUGGETRY network of sites.

 

Things that the new home page offers:

  • Clean, Web 3.0 interface
  • Ability to personalize the site to YOUR preferences
  • Follow your favorite community members, staff or contributors
  • See all recent content on each of the subdomains simply by scrolling

 

How to Customize YOUR Page:

One very cool feature is the ability to customize the more page to your likes and preferences. At the right of each section on the home page are the following icons:

By Clicking the “move up” and “move down” buttons you can move up the sections you want to see first and place other sections of the site that you may rarely visit down the page.

 

We will continue to tweak the site and there are a few bugs we are still working out. We thank you for your patience and look forward to continuing to grow this community with all of you!

 

Cheers!

Want A Cool Avatar Next To Your Name?

Add Comments

 

Some of you might be wondering how you get an avatar to appear next your name when posting comments anywhere on NUGGETRY?

 

Well, it’s simple. NUGGETRY is Gravatar enabled which means if you go to the Gravatar website and set up an account/upload an image (takes 2 minutes) using the same email address that you used when you set up your NUGGETRY account, you will see that image all thorughout NUGGETRY as your avatar anytime you make a comment.

It literally takes 2 minutes to go to www.gravatar.com and set up your avatar. Cool thing is, most websites/blogs online are Gravatar enabled so if you are a member of another site or comment on a different blog, your avatar will work there too.

It’s just another way of personalizing your profile and makes it a little easier for people to recognize your comments on some of our busier pages.

One thing you should know is that it can take up to 2 days for your image to start appearing on NUGGETRY after you set up your Gravatar account so don’t trip if it does not start working immediately. That’s just the way the interwebz works.

 

The NUGGETRY Blog Is Live!

Add Comments

It’s plain. it’s simple, it’s the new NUGGETRY Blog and it’s here to give you guys the scoop on all things NUGGETRY.

Hello NUGGETRY!

We wanted to start this blog to keep in touch with all of the members of our community to let them know what currently is happening in the NUGGETRY universe as well as things coming down the pipe.

 

It’s amazing just how much NUGGETRY has grown in bringing entertainment, education and information to the patient and stoner community over the last couple of years.

 

From Marijuana Reviews and the Daily Dank, the network has grown to include a MASSIVE reviews site (reviews.nuggetry.com),  the national geographic of weed photography (bigpics.nuggetry.com),  the youtube of cannabis (videos.nuggetry.com) ,  the pinterest of pot and glass (stash.nuggetry.com & glass.nuggetry.com),  a community questions& answers site, a collective finder site and a whole lot more.

 

In the last week we launched the NUGGETRY “World” beta site. This will be the first site of it’s kind for the marijuana community. It will be a gigantic world map that can be filled in by stoners the world round. Additionally it will allow you to do the following:

 

  • It will show collectives and allow for reviews and ratings and the ability to view menus.
  • It will also allow you to place your own favorite locations, businesses, hiking areas, smoking spots and pretty much anything you can think of to the map for your fellow stoners to enjoy.
  • Allows you to filter by any category you’d like and even search by businesses and places that specific other members recommend.
  • And a whole lot more…

Additionally in the next week , we plan on launching the new NUGGETRY chat. This will have video capabilities and will be great in helping this community to engage each other locally and worldwide.  We (of course)  ask for everyone’s patience as we implement these new features.

 

Down the road we plan on a massive re-design of the network as well as a host of features and add-ons that will make peoples experience more enjoyable. This network exists FOR you. If there is anything you’d like to see, let us know.

 

In the coming days and weeks, stay tuned to this site to hear the latest in what is coming down the pipe and what you can expect to see from NUGGETRY events, sites, magazine and a whole lot more….

 

Stay Tuned…
