General Rules

  1. While debating and discussion is fine,  we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Please watch your language when posting. If you must vent or "let loose" use our "Rants & Complaints" forum.
  2. Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) nonsense posts, or the such.
  3. No trolling - A troll is someone who posts something with the specific purpose of angering other members.
  4. No spamming - This includes using the forum email and direct message system to spam other members.
  5. Discussion of illegal activities is not allowed. That means no drug talk. There are plenty of other forums on the web for this type of discussion. This is not the place for it.
  6. Unfortunately, discussions related to Marijuana and CBD are not permitted on the forum. While we did allow this for a period of time, discussions invariably led rule 5 being broken. 
  7. Please keep all DIY e liquid chatter in the DIY forum. 
  8. Link Spam - You must not link spam the forum (post links for the purpose of advertising). Genuine messages with genuine links that are relevant and of use to our community are permitted. Link Spam will result in an instant ban without warning. 
  9. We reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules.


Vapor Talk allows verified vendors and to post on the forum. 

To post as a vendor: 

  1. Click Here - This will take you to the group change setting and your My Account panel
  2. Select "Vendor" and press the "save" button.

You now have access to the private suppliers forum. From here, you can go through the verified vendor process. A nominal fee is involved. 

There are two vendor types: 

  • Verified Vendor - You are given full, relatively unrestricted access to the forums. You must abide by the Vendor Rules. Verified vendors can also purchase banner advertising.
  • Regular Vender - Due to the ridiculous amount of spam, non verified vendors are restricted from interacting with the community. 


Vendor Rules

Vendor Guidelines (Read these carefully, failure to do so may result in your account permanently banned. There are far too many requests for us handle account reconsiderations. These rules are fairly typical) 

  • You must be an “established” vendor for 6 months, with a website. No eBay, Craigslist or Facebook sellers.
  • Your website must be 100% e-cigarette related and must have Contact information with a valid mailing address, telephone landline number and email. If your website does not comply, and you ignore our request to update it, you will be reverted to “Unapproved Supplier” and will have no rights on the site.
  • No Drug/Dry Herb related pics, videos, posts, links, or Drug/Dry Herb references are permitted. 
  • Vendors, under no circumstances, may post personally identifiable information.  We take the privacy of our forum members seriously.
  • Vendors who make claims that e-cigarettes are a health product, or that they can be used to quit smoking, or that they are a pharmaceutical product, will not be accepted (or will be removed).
  • All forum contact with members must follow forum rules. We expect both our members and our suppliers to act courteously. Contact a Moderator if you have an issue with a member rather than contribute to the problem.
  • You may not under any circumstance use the PM or Personal Messaging system to spam members. This will result in a permanent, irrevocable ban.
  • Do not post any negative material about other suppliers or their products or service or prices, whether they are verified vendors or not . You may only promote your own business or products. You may not compare other vendors’ products (by exact name) unfavorably.
  • Your supplier privileges apply to you alone. That is to say, you cannot transfer those privileges to another, or have multiple members of staff with the same privileges. Only ONE ID permitted to represent the business.
  • Do not have a third party make promotional posts on your behalf. If this is found to be the case both you and that person will be banned.
  • If your website becomes non-compliant you risk being demoted or classed as Unregistered. We occasionally review vendor websites.
  • If we have multiple reports that your service or products are faulty, and you do not resolve these issues, we may revoke your registration.
  • If we have a report of a serious infringement of our Rules, or of the law, or of an action that will bring Vapor Talk or the industry or the community into disrepute, or place Vapor Talk at risk of legal action, we may revoke your registration.
  • Pay your fees on time
  • No suppliers who trade exclusively or extensively[1] as affiliates[2] or drop-shippers[3] are allowed as Authorized Vendors at Vapor Talk. Such suppliers if identified will be banned without warning. Vapor Talk, like most honest forums, intends to support and protect the trade, and does not regard web marketers with multiple interests (or possible multiple interests) as members of the trade proper.
  • Sales and Promotions (General Suppliers Forum) – limit 2 threads per week – posting more than 2 will result in merged threads and/or removed threads
  • No coaxing or bribing other members to “tag” you so that you can post vendor forbidden content.
  • As things change and situations arise, all of the above rules are subject to change.

What all of this essentially boils down to is treating customers right and preventing spam on the forum. If you would like to promote, spam, or market your business do so only in designated areas.
