In order to keep the forum running well and to keep it enjoyable for all, please follow these forum rules:

While these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure this forum and its users are not disrupted or abused in any way.

Any content (including images, posts, profile comments, avatars, signatures, etc.) that contains, or may be construed to contain, sexist, racist, or harassing content, or political in any form, is strictly prohibited.

You must be a minimum of 21 years old to register on this site. This site is intended for legal aged adults. Underage persons are not allowed to view or participate on this site in any manner. You must be of legal smoking age in your state or country of residence to view or participate on this site.

Buying or selling tobacco is not allowed on this site. Anyone buying, selling, or attempting to buy or sell tobacco on this site will have their registration revoked.

Discussion of illegal activities is not allowed.

Discussion of politics in any form is not allowed. This includes subtle "digs" of a political nature. There are many other places to discuss politics. This forum contains people with a diverse set of political views, and we all want a place to relax and take a break from it all.

Usernames may not contain business names or website names without authorization from the forum staff.

This is a pipe-smoking forum and all topics/posts shall be pipe related with the exception of the specialized sub-forums

While friendly debate and discussions are fine, we will not tolerate rude, racist, harassing, personally insulting, or purposeless inflammatory posts (“trolling”).

Copying and pasting text, from external sources without proper permission and acknowledgement is not allowed and large blocks of copied text are generally discouraged.

Members are allowed one PipeSmokersDen(s) account. Multiple accounts are prohibited unless authorized by forum staff.

Advertising, soliciting, self promotion or selling products or services in any form without a Sales Account is forbidden.




Signatures and/or taglines are not allowed in message bodies except for those with upgraded accounts.

Do not post “contests”, “box passes” or “give aways” without prior permission from forum staff.

The members of this site will not offer evaluations on the worth of any pipe, tobacco or accessories.

Our “private message system” is provided as a convenience to our members, we cannot guarantee the security, or reliability of this system (it is not a replacement for a users personal email). As these rules extend to all areas of the site, we reserve the right to read specific private messages sent through the forums in an investigation to verify a rule breach, illegal actions, or blatant abuse of the forum’s private message system. If you cannot accept these conditions, do not use the site's private message system.


In addition to the forum rules, the following guidelines are in place to keep the forum consistent:

Custom Title Guidelines
Custom titles are limited to 15 characters.


Signature guidelines
Signatures are limited to 250 characters, 1 URL, OR 1 graphic (no larger than a standard banner 468x60). Signatures are limited to the default font size (bold, italic and underline are fine).


If you have an issue concerning our policies, or staff, please use a personal contact method such as a private message or email to contact a staff member. We take serious complaints to heart, and will do our best to address them in a timely manner.
