You can't really get many more "sources of information" or "different perspectives" than you will find here, one of the virtues of being the largest e-cig community. ECF is loaded with some of the most intelligent, helpful people i've ever encountered on a forum.
There are many country/state/mod specific forums out there, but when it comes to one large, incredibly diverse group, i don't think it gets much better than ECF.
If it happens in the e-cig world, you're almost guaranteed it will be discussed here.
Not vaping related, but I do frequent the discotheque forums often. Great tips on being macho, body glitter, bullybats.
I learned everything I needed to know in life walking the streets of Compton.
I've visited some other forums, just for a look see. Ummm no thanks. On one, someone had posted a question, the date was at least a week earlier than when I looked into the forum........there had been zero responses to that question. On another forum.....well lets just say the very worst, most controversial thread you have ever seen on ECF looks like just playing on a different forum I have checked out.
After that, I just decided......I think I'll just stay here.
I agree with you, twoSmokes, honestly. It just seems like it's nearly impossible to find updated information on something unless it's mod/APV related, and I don't just mean here at ECF. Unless you already know exactly what you have to search for, the information is either outdated, unreliable (or just advertising), or just plain unavailable. Then there's the problem with asking a question and getting an answer that's only semi-related.
Don't even get me started on finding a straight answer
Depending on what your looking for, I used YouTube a lot for additional help. Like if something didn't make sense in"written words" on how to clean a tank/coil, for example, I would watch the video.
Or if I want more reviews on juices I may Google it on occasion. But honestly, the other forums are like....crickets....completely silent.
My problem is that I'm looking for something that nobody else seems to want, a 510 cigalike that looks stylish and isn't a complete POS. Whenever I ask, I get the usual round of cigalike naysayers who want me to carry a freaking lightsaber around to suck on, or someone who offers a well-intentioned answer by recommending something that still isn't really a cigalike. I'm even open to the idea of buying batteries individually and just building my own PCC to get exactly what I want, but most of the suppliers I've seen so far offer next to no specifications about their products, like size, manufacturer, etc. And that's IF they'll even tell you whether or not their cigalike is a 510, 808, or some other number I don't even know about yet.

I have their Ego kit and have been pleased with it. Hope this helps.
