We realize that retailers can have a unique insight into the vaporizers that they sell since they deal with them on a day to day basis. This knowledge base can be beneficial to FC's membership if shared openly. With that in mind we have decided to now allow retailers to participate in vaporizer thread discussions going forward (to date they had not been allowed to post in those threads), but with the following restrictions in place to ensure posts aren't simply promotional: Retailers may now participate in vape threads with the following conditions: No promotion of your site allowed in your posts, period. This means you can't announce that you are having a sale, or that you have new inventory of XYZ vape, etc. All posts must be informational and factual about products and not merely promotional in nature (such as "this vape is great, you should get one"). Responding to inquiries in a thread is fine, such as answering a question like "what's the battery capacity of XYZ vape?" or "is the joint 14mm or 18mm?" Don't perform customer service in a thread. If a member asks you directly about your business (orders, sales, stock, RMAs etc.) do not reply in the thread, rather take it up with the member via PM. If you are unsure if a post would be ok under this new policy, please ask the staff prior to posting for guidance. The reason we had not allowed retailers to post in vape threads is because we didn't want FC to look like it's full of ads. We believe we can continue to keep spammy posts or ads off the site by enforcing a zero tolerance policy. If we feel a retailer is not adhering to the spirit of this new rule change, they will lose their posting privileges. If you are a retailer and are having issues being able to post, please contact the staff. If for whatever reason this new rule backfires entirely, we will revert back to the old way, so consider this an experiment for now.
