Vendors, (U.S., Canadian and UK Vendors only)
For a number of years we removed vendors ability to post on the forum due to the significant amount of spammy posts that required deleting almost daily. After much discussion and watching what has been successful on similar forums, we are opening the board back up to suppliers. Though we have our own store, we've always prided ourselves on staying neutral and allowing our members to post and discuss a wide variety of products, often not our own, without fear of repercussion. We'd like to open the forum back up to suppliers but kindly ask that you follow our simple ruleset below.
Vendors are welcome to post on the forum as fellow vapers. You may post a link to your website in your signature. (A useful posts makes Vapor Talk Member happy = Happy Vapor Talk Member sees your link, potentially visits your store.)
We welcome vendors to use their store logo as their avatar. In return, you must link back to Vapor Talk Using one of the banners located in this thread. Failure to follow this simple request will result in a warning from the staff first and a permanent ban second.
Additional guidelines are posted below
- You must be an "established" vendor for 6 months with a website. No eBay or Facebook sellers.
- You must link back to this forum on your homepage with one of the graphics supplied in the thread above. If you need additional sizes, please contact us.
- This must be in a static format which cannot be reduced in size for any reason
- You may not link directly or indirectly to your store in a post unless a member specifically asks about your product. We've been doing this for ten years, please don't try to create secondary accounts with the sole purpose of "asking" yourself a question. Our staff members are pretty diligent and almost always catch these clone accounts.
- No coaxing or bribing members to tag you so that you can post vendor forbidden content.
- No Drug/Dry Herb/CBD related pics, videos, posts, links, or Drug/Dry Herb/CBD references are permitted. Also if your website is all dry/wax related product you will not be permitted to post your links.
- Vendors, under no circumstances, may post personally identifiable information. We take the privacy of our forum members seriously.
