Thank you for joining this forum! We're happy to have you here and want you to feel welcome, there are just a few rules to follow to keep things running smoothly.
Rule I. Think twice before posting: Everyone deserves to be spoken to with respect, even people you don't agree with. Do not harass, insult or threaten any other members. Do not post anything that will instigate an argument or extend one that already exists. Do not post hateful content or anything that can viewed as vulgar or obscene. Please also refrain from political comments or discussions, and keep swearing to a minimum.
Rule II. Opinion vs Fact: Refrain from making statements as if they are facts, the only facts in the vaping world are the physical specs of each product, everything else about vaporizers is highly subjective. Stick to phrasing what you post as your opinion and keep your tone neutral to get the best responses from others and avoid contention.
Rule III. Products you don't own: Asking questions about products you don't own is absolutely OK and is encouraged. Do not post things like "I hear xyz vape sucks", "my friend has abc vape and says it blows", or "there's no way abc vape tastes better than xyz vape".
Rule IV. Keep threads on topic: It's not always easy to do but please keep all discussions on-topic and try not to veer off track with your comments. If a discussion ever spirals out of control the forum Mods have the right to close such thread and issue warnings to the members involved. Keeping each thread clutter-free and easy to read is a very high priority here.
Rule V. Directing comments at other members: If you are posting a comment directed at another forum member and you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it. You can disagree with someone and question their opinions, but personal attacks and name calling will not be tolerated. Do not harass or send threatening private messages to any to other members, this is considered a violation as well.
Rule VI. This is a no-bash zone: If you have a personal gripe with a company you should contact them directly to work out your issue. If your desired outcome is not achieved, you can post about your experience, but do not post things like "xyz company sucks", "don't buy from xyz", or "xyz is a scam". You can say you don't like a particular company if you didn't have a good experience but please phrase it as your opinion and leave it at that. Do not post comments about companies you haven't personally dealt with unless it's a question.
Rule VII. Promotional posts: If you're a vape company having a limited time sale, it is usually OK to post your sale details, but that's really the extent of what's allowed unless you have prior permission. Do not create new posts with the sole purpose of linking to another store or a different website. Promo posts are moderated on a case by case basis.
Rule VIII. Do not discuss any illegal activity:Do not ask to buy any type of drugs on this forum, and do not offer to sell any either. We have a zero tolerance policy for discussions about any illegal activities.
NOTE: To report a post that you think breaks the rules please click the FLAG icon at the bottom of the comment.
This is how moderation and rule enforcement will work: 1st violation = PM warning (a moderator will send a private message to the user) 2nd violation = Public warning (a moderator will post a public comment warning the user) 3rd violation = 7-day suspension (user's ability to post on the forum will be disabled for 7 days) 4th violation = Permanent ban (user's account will be banned permanently)
