Right on here’s a high 5 ? For you all. You all are helping good people keep away from cigarettes.
Keep up the good work. ????
I wonder how many people will live due to the vaping industry? My praise to One and all that help keep vaping alive which has also helped people to stay alive! Thank you all very very much!!!!
Nobody added Ohms Anonymous to you tube channels. I’m hurt. Lol.
Under the RDA category Dead Rabbit is listed twice as Dead Rabbit and Hellvape Dead Rabbit. If you add those two together it is #1 by far. (Unless there are others that have multiple listings as well.). I hope a human will review the responses and correct the final results. Thanks!
I will be editing and updating the polls today to fix duplicates.
VapeWild also has duplicates. They are on there as VapeWild and vape wild.
Not fixed yet…
Is the voting over?
Of course not. It’s still going, all month long.
I would like to give a shout out to squid industries. Eric and his crew offer an amazing product with a charitable direction for veterans, not to mention the customer service and appreciation towards there consumers. The “Double barrel v2.1 is the best mod I’ve ever put in my hand.
The Double Barrel is the best 4 mods I have put in my hand!
Broadside is the future in vape industry
At category: Best Vape Forum the entry “thai vapers” should be “Thailand Vapers”
Blake, is it possible to fix the duplicates of “thai vapers” and “Thailand Vapers”? Thanks.
Best Vape forum. Now someone also added a duplicate with “Thailandvapers”. Thanks for the help.
Vapewild is a favorite by far but i have one other and they are amazing! Secret City Vapor is on my list of two. You should check them out. Those two are the only ones i buy from. Thank you for what you are doing for the community.
I assume my votes counted. It never redirected me.
Whoever is in charge if this is seruously slacking. Some of the choices are, slightly out of line.
My God I can’t words. Whoever is in charge of this list is seriously slacking***
We heard you. Calm down. It will be fixed.
I let it all build up and fix it every couple of days. If I were to fix something every time a mistake, duplicate or bad word was made, I’d be here all day. Just like each year since 2011, everything will be fixed and all will be updated every other day. We still have the whole rest of the month.
You’re doing a very good job
Thank ya! 🙂
I quit cigarettes 2 and 1/2years ago. Have NOT been sick at all, no more sore throats, bronchitis, etc. Wish more people would realize the benefits!
Can you get rid of all of the racist shit on most of the drop downs.
Why was my Group “Old Vapers” removed from the Forum catagory, but other FB groups you allow?
I’m removing them all. I only removed ones that said “FB” or “Facebook group” or ones that I know are Facebook groups. I can’t just remove any name, I have to take time and research them all to see if they are forums or not. Yours was one I knew was a Facebook group since we had a discussion about it. I don’t play favorites… trust me, if it were up to me these polls would look entirely different.
Sorry I just have to say once again that a vape facebook group is a vape forum, and I hope next year you either create a separate category for it…or include them in Forums…Thanks…you have a tough job…lol
It is a group, and I agree with what you say once again. However, I didn’t intend the Best Vape Forum category to be used for Facebook groups. Perhaps I should have been more descriptive. I had to deal with the same thing last year. Next year we will for sure have a separate category for it. And yes, I know.
How are you gonna have someone in the poll be sponsoring you too, you basically made it pay to win with the intro having they’re name in it, don’t think that’s very fair.
Easily. Vapor Authority is sponsoring the event, meaning they’re paying for the actual awards that I send to the top 3 winners in the top category, which is the “Best of 2017”. Because of their sponsorship, I provide information about them and display any giveaways that they can offer due to the event. They’ve done this in 2015 and only took 2nd place in Best Customer Service — I don’t think they won in anything else. Just because their name is displayed doesn’t mean they’re prone to get more votes. People will vote on who they think is the best. I mean, did you vote on them just because you have seen their name?
i’ve been following this since 2014 so i know you really try to do the right thing every year but the sponsor leading in those categories does appear to play a role in the voting.
I can see where it may seem that way. However, I can assure you they aren’t gaining votes due to it. Vapor Authority is gaining votes because they’re blasting it on social media and newsletters. They sponsored in 2015 and barely got votes except for best customer service category. Since then they started ranking higher on search engines and have gained quite the following — in return they’re now benefiting from it on these polls. The same goes for VapeWild… they have a huge following, they blast it and they get votes. If Giant Vapes would have done the same, I can assume they would be leading the polls right now due to their following. None of this should be taken super serious, although I do know it helps stores and people enjoy receiving recognition for their work. As I’ve told many other stores, brands etc… the way to receive votes is by participating more.
From reading below I noticed that you will be updating the list at periodic intervals . Just wanted to add to your ever increasing list : The North Carolina Vapers Carnivale and Vapers Carnivale Expo are the same thing 😉 I know you’ll fix it , just making you aware. Also NVE and Foxwoods are the same thing and Vape Showcase and The Vape Showcase … <3
Awesome, thank you for the help! And yep, I’ll fix it.
The thing is about the polling plugin I’ve had built, it’s a blessing and a curse. It allows everyone to submit entries, but no way of stopping them from adding bad words, duplicates, etc. I actually had a feature built onto the plugin that alerts the user if they’re submitting a duplicate entry or an entry similar to one already submitted. People weren’t using it still, so we removed it.
I totally understand bro . I’m a programmer myself , can’t please everyone all the time ! You guys are doing a great job! Keep up the good work!
Best Rebuildable Atomizer (RDA/RDTA/RTA)
This should have been 3 categories not one.. each do something different
Users complained about there being too many categories so I reduced the amount. This is one of the categories that I combined.
Couldn’t find Victory Liquid in any list 🙁
you’re able to submit the entry yourself. Instructions were provided.
Vaping voodoo is one of my favorite youtube reviewers go check him out.
VAPEWILD ALL THA WAYYYYYY!
When I submitted my vote I was told that my G-mail address had already voted, problem is that I’m positive I had not voted don’t know if it’s a glitch or if you have had any other complaints about this but I thought I would bring it to your attention Thank You ([email protected]) Douglas Watkins
Ever since I have found Vape Wild I have never looked back. I love that you can customize your juice that it is made fresh and they also now offer DIY materials and some other brands now for those that are die hards of other brands. Plus 3 free 10ml bottles in every order (2 for you and 1 to give away) and free 2 day shipping with the lowest prices on products I have found anywhere. I used to spend upwards of 500 a month on smokes and now I am down to 30-60 a month on juice, coils, etc. Plus my doctor even said that my COPD symptoms are almost no existent now and have been taken off meds for it. Total win for me. Customer service is amazing by phone or chat. Been recommending them to everyone I know.
there are many names which connect to the same thing, such as Smoant Charon, Smoant Charon TC, Smoant charon218 or Vape Wild and Vape wild, also Recoil Rebel and Recoil Rebel RDA. Results will not be fair cause voters are confused.
They’re being consolidated tonight.
Vapor Authority is my personal best discovery of 2017. I found them earlier this year and have not used another vape site since. The customer service is truly amazing and everyone Ive spoken to has been incredibly helpful and responsive to any issues. Glad to see them getting some well deserved props here!
Smok is garbage, this page just lost all credibility LOL
And another who thinks their opinion is the only one that matters.
Vapewild? Really? And we wonder why this industry isn’t going to survive. We reward people who produce garbage and who’ve sent out product with bugs in it and lied to their customers because it’s cheap. Now as a result of this poll, more people are going to be turned on to terrible quality juice. Hopefully they don’t think all juice tastes like, or is made in conditions like that.
Wasn’t that Dr. Crimmy’s that had the bugs in their liquid and terrible manufacturing conditions?
