  1. Good Evening Everyone, I hope you are all well and in good health. Maintenance will take place this evening between 11pm and 12am PST. During this time we will: Perform a large upgrade to our spam system Resolve several bugs collected and reported by members General site improvements I suggest backing up your posts during this time. Thanks for your patience.
  2. That's because you are a vendor. Please visit the vendor section which should be viewable to you from the homepage.
  3. Hi Tam, let me see what I can come up with
  4. Welcome. If you run into any issues, you can open a support ticket or contact one of the staff members. So long as you don't spam, you're welcome to join us
  5. You should have selected "yes" to the supplier question when signing up on the forum. I will move you into the supplier/vendor group.
  6. They just update the rules for our area today. No gatherings of any kind except those living under your household, no exceptions including religious gatherings. Everyone must wear face coverings now enforced by law enforcement (fines/jail time). Getting pretty wild out there.
  7. Well things sure have gotten a little crazy over the past few weeks. We have forum members all over the country/world. How are things going in your area?
  8. 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. FAILURE TO PERFORM THIS STEP BEFORE POSTING WILL RESULT IN AN IMMEDIATE BAN 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.
  9. As other suppliers as required to pay for link listings, I'll request that you do the same (Moved to suppliers group)
  10. Please take a moment to read the forum rules. You need 3 posts before you can join the general forum. This is to limit the amount of spam we receive. As of this post, you should now be able to participate.
  11. Man... I mean... *sigh* I just don't get how hard it is to follow the rules. I mean we've been doing this 10 years... Carry on folks
  12. Hey Tim, thanks for asking before hand. But yes, you're welcome to post reviews on the site. Just check out the reviews sub forum and post away. You're also welcome to post your review videos.
  13. I know we hate it too... Obviously I'd love to give more information but there still a lot going on and this is public domain. With that said though, no matter what, regulation is going to become more and more difficult in the US. I can't say I completely disagree with it, lot of fly by nighters out there. I just hope it's to the benifit of vapers.
  14. For the moment Vapor Talk is working to wrap things up in California and finish up any required paperwork before leaving the state. From then on forward, the focus will primarily be on the forum and online community in general. PMTA is also kicking in (which is federal level) and is not something the board members wish to pursue at the moment unfortunately.
  15. Boy I wish we could Unfortunately, due to regulations in California we are simply unable to ship or sell our product lines.
  16. Vendors, Before getting started, please visit the vendor portal for current rules & guidelines. You may also wish to take a moment to review the general forum guidelines.

  17. Two prominent vaping researchers are facing off over claims that electronic cigarettes double the risk of heart attacks in adults, muddying the science over how best to stop smoking. Brad Rodu, a University of Louisville professor, asked the Journal of the American Heart Association to retract a study out last month by University of California, San Francisco professor Stanton Glantz. The study, co-authored by Dharma Bhatta, claimed adult vaping was "associated with" a doubled risk of heart attack, but Glantz went farther in a blog post, saying the study represented "more evidence that e-cigs cause heart attacks." However, when Rodu obtained the federal data, he found the majority of the 38 patients in the study who had heart attacks had them before they started vaping — by an average of 10 years earlier. In his letter to the editors, Rodu called Glantz's findings "false and invalid." Full Story
  18. Some of you may not have been able to use the forum over the last 24 hours. When logging in, you may have received a "are you a supplier" question, which, rather than updating, kept looping back to the same question. My apologies as this was an error on my part. It should be correct and working again
  19. Hey Folks, There was several reports that the Twitter login handler was not working correctly. This has since been corrected. You may now login to your forum account using Twitter.
  20. Hey Vapor Talkers, In an effort to keep spammers in check and to ensure new members take a few moments to get acquainted with Vapor Talk's features, all new members will be required to have 3 posts before being placed into the unrestricted 'VT Member" group. How does it work? What limitations will I have when I first join the forum? When first joining the forum you be limited to posting in these sub forums: Introduce Yourself New Vapers Forum Site Features, Requests and Help Vapor Talk Store Support Forum After 3 posts, you will automatically be moved into the standard user or "VT Member" group. From there you can post on the forum normally. But how do I get three posts? What if I don't have a question? What if I want to reply on another topic! The easiest method is to simply introduce yourself (see the Introduction Forum). Say hello! At the very least, a staff member will reply. You're also free to ask a question about your new device in the New Vapers Forum. I can't find the forums you mentioned This is partly why we have this minimal restriction. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the forum. This ensures you post in the correct area (ensuring your questions or topic is answers faster) whilst easing the workload on our awesome forum admins and moderators. I feel... feel so chained. I just want to ask my question. We know, we get it. But unfortunately, when dealing with a forum of this size, spam can be a real hassle. We're quite good at spotting it and removing it quickly. But this makes it much easier for us to keep spam limited to a single area. It makes clean up easy. We appreciate it. Feel free to start a new topic and jump in. Vapor Talk is well known for it's friendly members, help us keep that vibe going. If you run into any issues, please don't hesitate to contact a staff member.You may also want to take a moment to view the forum rules.
