Possibly a lot of us have found our "happy place" mod and atty wise and we're sitting waiting for the full effect of the TPD to kick, or maybe The Donald to start WW3.

Cheers.

The best part of camping with mates, for me, is sitting round a fire, staring into it then occasionally making a brew, or passing round a bottle or trying a different juice on offer, then getting back to staring into the fire.
Nowt wrong with that.
BUT if it's causing to much work (I have no idea how Forums like these run) for 1 or 2 individuals,then whoever does the work either asks for, and gets support or it isn't relaxing for everyone.
Chilling is why I check in here and as Vaping is an everyday thing for me now, it's kinda nice to chill without feeling like the "New" thing is the best thing, or that any Vaping above 1oHm is irrelevant.
Most long time Vapers on here (I recognise a few names!) understand that many of us have already found our ideal wattage/voltage/draw/resistance style and will investigate and try new stuff if and when we want.
Other forums don't want/need to offer that opportunity, fair play to them, but I quite like being able to check in somewhere where folk (Cheers Moto!!) post specialist Vape porn, with no other purpose than to let other enthusiasts know Quad Coil Squonkers are out there, as are tiny Single coil, 1mm airhole BF RDAs.
If he/she wants to check out reviews for and weigh up the possibility of wandering (metaphorically) along the Silk Road, to the palace of the Emperor and gazing in awe and wonder at the discoveries of the great explorer Moto Polo!

When I smoked i smoke a pipe. I built up a collection of early 20th century english pipes - a lot of pipe smokers left their best pipes at home when they went to war and didn't return home. Now that I vape, squonking seems to me to give me the same relaxation. If you can remember smoking in pubs, the pipe smoker always sat in a quiet corner and said nothing - just listening. Well that's how I've turned out. I am quite happy to spend my time listening/reading, rarely raising a voice. I guess most squonkers are like that. I would be sad to see this site go but in all honesty we aren't doing much talking here. If this site goes, my thread at Fasttech will continue until I finally get sick of the juvenile ill mannered behaviour of so many there.

The "around the fire" metaphor is right on the money.
This is virtually the only site I post on and im a habitual lurker in general, usually only speaking up when I have something worthwhile to say. I like this place as there's no Heavy mob calling out new folk for their lack of knowledge, no flamers or trolling either. I would be sad to see it go completely but at the same time I have a lifestyle type job and know how it is to be so short of time that you can barely get the real life stuff done let alone keep a forum running.
It would be a big shame to see the site go so I'd probably agree that closing and going invite only or something would be a good way to restrict the amount of admin work that can occur. I definitely side on anything that sees the site stay in existence.

I've had some pm chats with cheekiecharlie and have made him a site admin. So he can now run the site as I do, including banning me:-)

Reasons for this is that he has been a mod here for a bit, he's a mod over the road too, and he knows the forum software already, so no learning curve. This means I can pop in and pull up a chair when I get time, but also means day-to-day tasks will be taken care of. He's also free to appoint moderators if it gets too much for him.

I'll still leave the poll open, but for now it looks like we have made a good plan, and I'm feeling ok with the situation too. You're all awesome.

I like checking in here as I get to hear about actual real world devices and their downsides and plus point and how to Mod stuff to either make it work better, or to keep it going longer, or which spares fit as alternatives. Thats the kind of stuff I like.
Check out Boltr Ave on t'tube for some great, non-vape, teardowns. I can highly recommend 30 mins in his company!

I think many of us sat around this fire will now be feeling a little more relieved.

Thanks vern and cheekiecharlie.

the way i seen it was ,im on and off many times a day , same with ukv, im a member of most forums , but hardly visit them now ,im a full time squonker ,think i have around 25 mods , gave a good few away too , so having a dedicated forum just for squonking is my idea of heaven , as a few of you have said, having info about what to buy , how to fix (or bodge in my case) where to get supplies is invaluable

when i started squonking , there wasn't much info and i had to trawl countless forums ,many european sites , convert them to english , iv'e only just managed to persuade admin at ukv to have a dedicated squonk section , think they were sick listening to me Cool 

even the simple way to mod a non bf atty to bf , you wouldn't believe the amount of pm's iv'e had with people asking how i did it , if i can help someone with the knowledge i have learned , thats what keeps me going , im a tinkerer at heart, not a good one , but enjoy the fuck ups as much as the perfect solution moments , you learn from the mistakes ,at least i don't attack my mistakes with a big hammer now Angel

ay, that reminds me...i took my youtube channel down because I had a job that was sensitive (was an IT guy at a secondary school), but now I'm not. So I could perhaps make some mod videos branded to this site...the cut+dremel type of videos, not the send me free stuff so i can wax lyrical about it videos. time permitting.
