*** VENDORS***
For the purpose of this post the Term Vendor applies to any person using AVF to retail goods for profit
Subforums are only allocated to very longstanding vendors who have demonstrated great community spirit... if you are a Vendor without a sub-forum , then VENDOR GENERAL IS YOUR SUBFORUM

1. Those with Vendor status as per regular users are held to the provisions in the TOS and the general forum users as per any other user. If you disagree with this you must terminate your service without delay.

2. Vendors will abide by all rules laid out below, failure to agree or failure to do so will result in your status being terminated. No refunds and no recourse will be provided if the infractions are clear attempts to subvert our rules.

3. Vendors may participate in all areas of the forum save for the following:

* Reviews
* New Vapers forum ... Any advertising or touting for business here is liable for immediate and permanent bans .

3.(a) Vendors must NOT promote their services or goods outside of their thread in Vendor General ... doing so will incur bans up to and including permanent ones .

4. Vendors may participate in another vendor thread/subforum while ever said vendor allows you to do so. If you are asked to leave or cease posting by the vendor whose thread or subforum you are interacting in you will do so or risk moderation.

5. Vendors may not not post negative material about any supplier, their product or their services.

6. Vendors may discuss the benefits of their products/services ONLY within their subforum and must do so without putting the products and services of other vendors down.

6a. Vendors who are not allotted a dedicated sub-forum may post a thread in the Vendor General forum. Multiple threads are NOT encouraged without direct moderator approval ( Which shall be granted if you want to run an AVF giveaway or similar which warrants an extra thread )

7. Vendors MAY NOT discuss their products/services/branding/etc OUTSIDE OF THEIR SUBFORUM AT ANY TIME. If you post in Vendor General that means your subforum IS Vendor General !

8. Vendors MAY NOT use the tagging system for any reason at any time.

9. Vendors are not to use the PM system to contact a user who has not asked them to do so at any time for any reason.

10. You may not encourage users to spam AVF on your behalf. This is at the discretion of myself in any incidents where this may occur.

11. As with any other user vendors may NOT have multiple identities. If you are found to be in breach of this your status will be terminated
and no recourse offered.

12. I can add to this list at any time as I feel fit.
