Could you please pin the "Vape Porn" thread to the front page? It would be a shame for new users not to see the creative and beautiful gear many of the forum members have posted....this thread, imo, should be front and center, as it represents the very best of the FT Forum.

Thanks!

carrion4worm, thank you for your suggestion. We will discuss it internally and keep you updated here tomorrow (our time).

Update:

carrion4worm, we need to collect other members' opinions before making the decision. Thank you for your understanding.

That sounds like a really bad idea, I hope FT does not do that.

Sticky status should be reserved for notifications from the FT Staff.

If a thread is popular it will remain on the top page because of frequent posting and should not require to be pinned.

Many of the pictures are of products that aren't for sale on this site... I don't see the logic in promoting them, if anything it is likely to cause confusion.

This will help with carrion4worm and his self esteem by continuing to showcase on the front page of this forum all the obscenely expensive and in most cases vulgar vape creations he spends so much of his disposable income on.

Anything that keeps carrion4worm from picking up the axe and going on the rampage is to be encouraged IMHO.

I hope this helps peoples understanding of the complexity of this issue that isn't immediately apparent.

Why is it so important for you, Carrion?
This, would've been a great idea with the old 'Porn' thread which kept going for long years (started in 2013?) and... indeed helped to increase FT's sales a lot. 95% of the pics were about "dirt cheap" clones, available here at that time, moddings, some infos, from dozens and dozens of people.

I don't think it could be ever repeated.

I had requested a few times the original "FT porn" thread be unlocked, and removed from the ghost list(threads no longer show up after a few months). I do not believe it deserves a sticky, but at least remove the ghost setting.


Geek, thankfully, removed the spam and unlocked the thread but it remains hidden to all without the link.

Sure, it's over. At the end it was already agonising, even apart from the scat spammer, and most of the photos have disappeared since (old hosting sites, not supported any-more)

There are no comparisons that can be made between Carrions porn thread and the terrific one years ago.


Anyone can stick an atomizer on top of a box mod and take a photo but the old vape porn thread had some real works of art. And I say that as someone that was never into mechs so only browsed the thread but like Cilika offers, that could never be repeated today.

Maybe it could, maybe not. Who knows? But I don't understand why Carrion seems to be fixating on permanent top page status. It's only of interest to certain vapers, why not keep it in the vaper's forum - it won't be hard to find.
