lol Carrion. First of all, between pinning a thread and keeping it on the "latest threads" page, there's a slight difference.

It was discussed in an earlier thread, before, all threads were kept alive for 3 months, we managed to "negotiate" it with Geek for 6 months. Still, I'd agree with that, those threads which are regularly bumped up, could stay.

But you really should let go that "jealousy" thing.
Personally, amongst your tremendous collection, (at least what you showed from it here and by now) I found about 5% where I thought, wow I'd love to have one of those! Still, honestly I wouldn't say it made me feel jealous. For the rest..uhm yes, not everyone has the same taste. Also when your attitude provokes some sharp reactions you retract to this statement, "because they are jealous!" Maybe that helps you to feel better, but believe me, it's just totally off!

Yep, vape gears, have turned many peeps into collectors, smaller, bigger, and if it's about pricey gears or cheap chinese stuff, that's just about details. I'm pretty sure, any of us here has far more gears from what one would need.
These are just vape gears, you love to get hands on a mod or a nice pair of customised panels or whatever, until you find something new and forgetting totally about the other ones. So why would be sooo appealing to everyone else to spend real fortunes on them in every month? Jaisus. =)


I never really understood Carrion why are you posting your pretty gears' pics here instead of Reddit, Pinterest (what else?), maybe just being able to feed this illusion that you're more because of your "selected" pricey stuff?
...until I went to see those places, just to find out (anyway, it wasn't that new, and wasn't the first time) that regarding high end customising on gears, FB secret groups, real fetishism, etc. you're just NOT in the real game. =D
I wonder, why don't you rather collect (let's say) nice cars. Not enough money? lol

"You don't NEED to be here". You're here because you want to be here, period. AS anyone else. Don't think that without your advises, the life or this forum would stop! Just again, too much importance given to your own person.

Ya know, the old "Porn" thread stopped turning up on the first page too. Peeps who wanted to follow it, could subscribe. New comers ended up to find it. It lived its own life, until it lasted. It's got revived a little, but nobody had special illusions. We are in an other chapter now.

Meh.

The thread is 100% vape gear - it is in the Vaping Forum. The Vaping Forum contains threads that have been active for the last 14 months. The only people that will have any interest in the Vape Porn thread are vapers, who will routinely visit the Vapers Forum, so keeping it on the top page serves no purpose.

As posts have been added frequently to the thread it has always remained on, or close to the first page. The only thing that has changed is now it has similar positioning on the Vapers Forum section.

The thread is in no danger of being ghosted at present and any vaper visiting this site can currently find it easily in the Vapers section, the only damage done here is to someone's ego.

99% of ALL my Gear was purchased, from FT and I like to collect. Back in the day, it was myself and DJ, that posted a lot of Pics, and I never heard any of you complain about HIM and his High Dollar, Gear I'm just sayin...

I don't see anything wrong with it.

Cilika, you are very nice to try to speak to him with logic and reasoning. Every time I have attempted it he doubles down, and it turns into him trying to have an argument with me about some detail or basically anything.

From what I have seen he is like a child, bouncing from one tactic to another to try and get what he wants of any situation. He is going to be a piece of nate to everyone, because of what is inside him. All his issues aren't on us, or for us to have to deal with. To me when he said the way he talks to people is fine, but doing it back to him or even remotely not reading through what I write to him with a fine tooth comb was enough to result in a tantrum, yeah for me that was all I needed to see.

I am just done reading his stuff, skim comment lol. When you actually read what he writes and see daily what a POS he is to people, it leads to annoyance and it's not why I come here.

Even if talking to him is the literal only way to get information about something, and that is never the case, I don't care enough about the information to want to have a conversation with him.

You and DJ didn't behave like spoilt children, or behave in the way Carrion does, There is no equivalence XDM45ACP

IMHO

Correct me if I am wrong but I don't recall DJ posting a lot of high dollar vape gear. He purchased tons of gear, yes but not high end.
Most of what he posted could be found here at FT. Some that weren't, soon hopefully were.


My recollections of the original vape thread, at its best as I mentioned earlier were of mech mods and each one unique.
I seem to recall that around 2017 a LB started posting tons of photos of a simple mod and atomizer on top. Nothing creative about that.
Then another fellow whose name escapes me now posted tons of Aspire mods and atomizers on top. Many didn't want to see those, although I personally liked his particular photography attempts.
They wanted to see creative set ups. Not $400 mods with an atomizer on top. Anyone can do that.

Thats less vape porn than it is hand check photos.

Lots os over the years purchased $300 SX mini mods but as a rule I don't recall many at all being posted in the vape porn thread with an atomizer stuck on top, other than a hand check post.

No creativity in vulgar mods just because they are more expensive.

I don't see anything wrong with it."

Personally I will look at the gear thread from time to time, it's OK, I am not that into vape porn. Coil porn I used to like, but just the oh look I have this mod, I don't personally get the appeal. Do a google image search for mods you are actually interested in and you can look at hundreds of pictures, sometimes thousands, professionally done in allot of cases. That is me personally, do I think you should feel how I feel, not at all, like what you like. Enjoy the forum how you enjoy it.

The idea that it, "should be front and center, as it represents the very best of the FT Forum." though? No I don't feel that way. I think C4W spends allot of time speaking for the group. As far as you and DJ, you guys are great, the whole Vape porn thread could be all you guys back and forth showing amazing mods and that would be swell. I think your both great. I still wouldn't think it should be pinned to the top though. C4W, not for me, don't like him, he can post all the pics he wants to vape porn, I don't care at all. I am not against him enjoying the site, he is just a natebag to people. An hey what can I do, treat him like a natebag? Ignore him? Yes and Yes!

Nobody has ever complained about anyone owning high dollar gear. As far as I am aware there has never been any occasion where DJ or yourself have indulged in explosive temper tantrums or routinely attempted to bully, abuse or ridicule others, claiming the reason members don't agree 100% with your preferences/opinion on everything is because they are "jealous of your success".

If you detect a complete lack of sympathy in this thread, it is probably due to someone routinely behaving like a Jackwagon, not because of their private collection.
