    This thread is meant to give new members important forum-related information, all in one place for easy reference.

    First things first. This forum has rules, and all members are expected to know them and follow them. The forum rules can be found here: Forum Rules

    All new members have to start off in the New Members Forum for their first five posts. Details can be found here:

    Are you a new member with less than five posts, but the forum won't let you create a new thread? Check your email! The forum sends you an email upon registration with a link that you must click in order to verify and activate your account. Don't see it in your email Inbox? Check your spam folder. Sometimes it gets put in there erroneously.

    Having issues with your registration? DO NOT TRY TO "START OVER" BY CREATING ANOTHER ACCOUNT!!! We don't allow multiple accounts here (Remember the link to the forum rules I posted above?), and doing so will cause your extra accounts to be banned, and causes our volunteer Moderators a lot of work. Create a Support Ticket and explain your issue by clicking on the Contact Us at the bottom of every page.

    Are you an e-cigarette vendor or manufacturer? BEFORE YOU POST ANYTHING, you must register with us as a supplier before you post on our forum. This is for the protection of our members, and failure to do so will result in your account being temporarily deactivated as an unregistered ECF supplier while your status is resolved. Please contact via email : so we can assist you.

    If for some reason you don't like the username you've chosen (hey, it happens more often than you would think), you can request a username change here: Changing username

    Important options in your Settings: To upload a Profile picture (the pic that shows in your profile) go to "Edit Profile Picture". To upload an Avatar (the pic that shows in your posts) go to "Edit Avatar". To upload a signature (text or pic), you need to have 15 posts, then the option will appear under "Edit Signature".

    Do you see a post by another member that obviously breaks forum rules, or is spam? Help us out by reporting it! You can report any post by clicking the small icon under the post that looks like a triangle with an exclamation point in it. We appreciate your help!

    Do you enjoy these forums, and would like to help support the ECF? You can subscribe to the ECF for $24 a year via our Become an ECF supporting member! Subscriptions help to keep this forum going, and also gives you some perks such as a much larger PM Inbox.

    Having a technical issue with the forum that you'd like to report? Post it in the Site Feedback and Help Forum. This is also a great place to see if any issue you may have has already been covered in another thread.

    Do you have a review site, blog, or other site that you would like to link to from the ECF? Bloggers/Reviewers - READ - These changes affect you
    E-Cig blogs and review sites must go through a review process.

    Have some extra e-cig equipment or e-liquid, and would like to sell them? Or are you looking to try and find a good deal on some "gently used" e-cig supplies? Become a Verified Member. How To Become A Verified Member. Once you have become Verified, the Classifieds Forum will appear for you.

    We have a great place to get some good, informative information called the The ECF Library. You should check it out.

    Need to make some test posts to see if your images are showing up in your posts correctly, or if your signature is showing up, or for whatever other reason? Feel free to post them in The Sandbox. It's located near the very bottom of the front page of the forum.

    Looking for Suppliers? We have 80 e-cigarette suppliers with their own forums on the ECF Forum Suppliers. We also have hundreds of other Registered Suppliers who advertise in the E Cigarette Suppliers Forum, as well as the subforums under it.
