If you are an energetic, passionate vaper who can drive quality content(!!!), keep some order (not that we enforce any rules really :)) and would like to become part of the VH Team, please send me a PM.

    Hello Vapers

    It has been an exciting, yet sobering, month for VH. On the one side, we've grown enough to warrant the move to a virtual server. On the other side, we've turned 3 months old. Though not without its trials, tribulations, debates and frustrations, VH has proven to be a breath of fresh air into the community and a great sense of accomplishment for the admin and mod team. A sure sign of this is the ongoing support from the awesome vendors and the launching of a few new vendors on VH. We look forward to steady growth but more importantly, an engaged community.

    Thank you raslin for those kind words. A bigger thank you must go out to people like you and the other vh members, who make this a fun place to hang out.

    I guess this is as good a place as any to ask... Where/how did VapeHaven come about? Why did you guys decide to create your own one apart from that-other-forum-of-whom-we-do-not-speak :)

    Not that I'm complaining.. Aside from the amazing community here, I love the subtle, slick design of this one.. the other one looks like someone went a bit badge-happy on it :D

    Dont have the time to occupy 2 forums, so I'm happy here... just curious as to what caused the creation of another vaping forum?

    Loooong Story...

    But basically it boils down to the owners of the other forum limiting what is being said on there. If they don't like - bad reviews / the route a thread is taking / what is being said / the person posting / whatever - they lock threads and delete posts. Also, there are admins on there that blatantly said " if you don't like it, leave" And so some members did leave and start a new forum.

    Thanks @TheGrandMaster. Seen those threads before, but @baksteen8168's answer is exactly what I was after.

    Sounds about as good a reason as any :)
