Gibs' 10 Tips and Tricks For being a successful Newbie at Ccom

1. Never show a picture of an empty cooler/humidor/tupperdor!
for example show this (all of the cigars moved up to the top instead of spread out)-

instead of this (empty shelves)-

2. Keep your address a secret, never share with people that go by the name of Mike, June, RobbyRas.... actually just share it with no one but me, ill keep it safe.

3. Keep your Bio updated, it will help to keep you "safe"

4. Everybody buys crappy cigars aka Dog Rockets occasionally, it happens. For example i have a 5 pack of "Free Cuba" Cigars in the mail right now; the band had nothing to do with me purchasing them...

5. Dont be afraid to try new and different cigars, you never know what you will like.

6. Kuzi knows more than he will admit, listen to what he says, he is a pretty smart guy.

7. Understand that this is a widely varied group, not everyone will always agree, but try to get along with others.

8. If your addy does somehow manage to get out, run, run far away. the guys and gals here are evil

9. The Ccom Daily Deal and Sprint Sale are the BEST

10. Cigars are more of a lifestyle than a hobby, they are all consuming, learn to completely enjoy them.


Notice: This post was written in a semi-serious semi-joking manner I based my picks on what ive seen on the forum in the year ive been here, and do not mean to offend anyone with this post or its contents.

    Dude did you line your coolidor with led rope light? If so that is awesome makes you feel like your opening the arc of the covenant every single time you go for a cigar.

    You might want to add "Don't try to sell anything with your first post or your soul will be ripped out of you then thrown to a pack of starved soul eating chihuahuas" to the list.

    When I first started getting into this whole thing, I bought a "2-fer" of the Free Cuba bundles from the sister (before I even knew CCom existed actually). Smoked and/or shared all 50 of them. As I recall I didn't hate them.

    Yeah i did, and its battery powered so every time i open it is and the lid hits the momentary switch they light up even if the power is out, its very helpful at night when im trying not to wake up the roommate. I have a thread about it somewhere on here.

    And those who say they only have a few 10 packs or a 50 ct humi, don't trust them.
    They lie. And even worse, if they want to do a 5 for 5 trade, best make room in your humi, cause they can't count neither.

    And Sandy claws is just a figment of your imagination. LOL!
    There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    No one. None of us would ever do anything underhanded like that. ROFL!

    Very nice Gibs, couldn't agree more

    Id add if you want to get into the bombing game f up the vets and get creative. Pacifiers, 5ft tall coffins, peppers, sharks jerseys even though they dont like the sharks. But do not impersonate a WW2 flight crew and lay waste to the forum. That just pisses people off.

    You forgot the most important rule: Knock off the rules, for Chrissake.

    Well, except for number 6 about Kuzi. I would vote for him on Dancing With the Stars.

    “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)



    Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.
