i belong to cigar family because of my experience in meeting Bobby Newman, Excutive VP of JCNewman, which really jump started my interest in cigars, before it was only something that I did occasionally. Now it is a rare day that I don't smoke or check out the forum here or there.
Good bunch there, Just like this bunch of Gorrillas here.
The first forum I joined, in late December 1998, was CigarFamily, where I am still an active member. I found CS rather later and only wish I had found it sooner. I am registered at about four other forums, but I haven't visited any of them in ages.
When I was first looking for cigar information a couple of months ago, I googled "cigar forums". CS was not first on the list, so I linked to four or five other forums, read them all, went back and forth looking at the culture, activity, design, etc.
CS was the most active by far ( I like that) had a nice layout, and the tone seemed welcoming. I joined this one and that's sufficient. Don't need any others.
I am a member of cigargeeks, there is much less posting but everyone there is very nice. I hit both CS and CG multiple times everyday...although I just signed up for CS the other day I have been here or awhile lurking.

ICC is my home forum.
CS is one of the last places i became active on but it has become one of my favorite places to be!
i check most of them out once a day, there are some places that amuse me and make me laugh....but i need that every so often.. LOL
there are alot of really good people here at CS, i can see why some others here don't need anything but CS. a good place to be.
