    Tam reacted to Christopher in New Vendor or Supplier? Please Read FIRST before posting - Updated 11/30/2019   
    Vendors, 
    Vapor Talk allows vendors and suppliers to post on the forum. 
    To post as a vendor: 
    Click Here - This will take you to the group change setting and your My Account panel Select "Vendor" and press the "save" button. That's it! You can now post in the general suppliers sub forum.
     
    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, private sub forums, etc. 
    Regular Vender - If you opt not to become an Authorized Vendor, you may only post in the General Suppliers Forum. You must still abide by the Vendor Rules.
     
    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.

    Public health expert on e-cigarette panic
    Researchers are working hard to determine the cause of more than 500 reported cases of lung illness affecting e-cigarette users. But even before this outbreak, e-cigarettes divided the medical community. Public Health England describes e-cigarettes as "at least 95% less harmful than tobacco cigarettes" – a claim New York University professor David Abrams agrees with. Abrams tells "CBS This Morning" Tony Dokoupil why he's concerned about what the current panic about e-cigarette safety could mean for public health.Sept 20, 2019

    Truly an oxymoron. They're killing off the people from which they get their money.

    Tam got a reaction from Walt in Need help with mixing liquid   
    In addition to the advise that Walt gave you, can you go back to the store and ask if you can buy just the flavoring and some PG (polypropylene glycol)? It's the PG that delivers the throat hit (as well as a higher nic content). Adding PG to your existing juice will thin it out some and it will also dilute the flavor a bit as you're adding more liquid. You may notice that you'll get a little less vapor when you add the PG (PG is the flavor carrier and thinner than VG. VG makes your juice sweeter, mellows out the throat hit and makes it smoother, gives you more vapor). That might help you out.

    Same with me in that my HDL cholesterol is on the low side of average where before it was pretty damned high, blood pressure went down a bit more (which could be a bad thing for me because it was a little lower than the optimal 120/80 before but....), and I'm not short of breath anymore when I exert myself walking up and down stairs. My doctor is much happier with me since I started vaping.

    Used, or tried to, the same rationale when talking to a couple people I know.  Tried to talk them into at least trying vaping to get rid of all their coughing and hacking.  Might as well have been talking to a sack of hammers.  Some wise man once said ...... "you just cant fix stupid".

    Amen!!!   I'll say it again, Amen!!!
    We've been vaping for over a decade and this so called crisis pops up.  Give me a break!  The first thing I tell people who question or condemn my vaping is that 2.5 years ago my BP was 142/80.  I had an inhaler.  I was in the beginning stages of COPD/emphysema.  I constantly wheezed.  All that is gone.  118/72, moving more air than I have for the last 20 years.  The next thing I ask them is if they don't think it is a little telling that this sickness just popped up in the last few months after better than a decade of vaping and note that the vast majority of cases have been traced back to adulterated e-juice and none traced back to a legitimate store.  
    Just insane.

    My pleasure.  Here is a link where DJlsb opens one up.  You can see where the 510 is held underneath by a nut.  That is probably loose.  Unfortunately there is a good probability that the ground wire may have disconnected while the atty was spinning.  You may have some soldering to do.

    People believe they are way too busy and over stressed even though they can babble endlessly about Game of Thrones or Walking Dead and the like.  If they don't vape, they are not going to dig.  They will just parrot headlines.  We lost the biggest battle by not getting in front of this.  We knew it was coming.  Now the anties have got their agenda well published which is effectively the rules of engagement.  We got slapped with proving them wrong which is exactly opposite of rules of law.  It is their burden to prove their accusations are correct.

    It is sad.  I don't think people want to believe how corrupt these agencies are.  I don't blame them.  I would love to believe these agencies were working to protect me.  A person has to go through something like this vaping "crisis" on a personal level to accept the corruption, deceit,  and deception these agencies propagate.
