Tobacco Reviews.

I reckon whoever maintains the TR database has tried to fix the indexing issues online and failed, so now they've taken it down completely to try to rebuild the indexes. Does anyone have a contact at MacBaren or other manufacturer who may know more?

Just looked. I's working now, but the problem is this: it's a site called Tobacco REVIEWS and I can't get to any reviews, or get on my profile page. All I can see are blogs, adverts, tobacco polls. Disappointing.

Wasn't the site bought some time back by Sutliff or something like that?

Yes, technically STC Holdings, LLC which is owned by Mac Baren.

Unrelated but interesting I also found these links to some upcoming releases while digging around:

https://sutliffdistribution.com/sutliff-cringle-flake-2023/
https://sutliffdistribution.com/seattle-pipe-club-down-yonder/

TR database appears down/offline for maintenance at this time. Hope they work all the kinks out.

Morning @StevieB. Now I already had opened an account there, but I couldn't access it using their recommended action of requesting a password reset. So I re-opened my account using their 'new' account opening process using the same email address and lo and behold - that worked, and I started to browse it again as usual. Maybe that'll work for you too?

Another disappointment: perhaps i'm not looking hard enough but the few reviews on TR i've seen did not have the "Similar To" field at the end of the reviews, and that was one of the biggest aids for me in evaluating tobaccos

I went and had a look. I am disappointed with the new look, format and content. It looks way too commercial to my liking.
I don't think I will go there often.
Agreed, it looks way too commercial. Maybe this is the tobacco worlds aim: appeal to the majority, instead of providing a 'haven' for the few? I guess it's just business, so can't fault them, money talks and bull***t walks :roflmao: :roflmao:
