This is not MY thread, or YOUR thread, it’s OUR thread. For those of you who’ve been here a while, do you remember when WE used to do this all of the time ?? It seemed like every other day, someone, was sending something, to another member. I do. If I have the time, I’ll try and find some of the good ones, and share them here, as examples, but I don’t think we’ve ever had a dedicated thread for it.
I know MANY of you have done this before, and are still probably doing it, and I’ve done it many times over the years. Most often, for newer mixers/members to try and help them get their feet wet. I’m not saying that because it’s far less common now, that we’re in the shitter, but I think when we WERE doing it more often, ELR, was just a damned better place to be, hang out, share information, etc.
It’s NOT a competition, or a “Look What I did” kind of thing, but I actually DO think, doing it publicly, could benefit everyone, and LEAD by example. It’s about US, helping US.
I remember sending out a pre-coiled/cotton’ed SteamCrave RDTA, and a bunch-o-juices to a member who was struggling to get good flavor, and I wanted to see if a new RDTA, or mixes would help him.
I sent over 100 new flavors to a newer mixer who didn’t have a lot of flavors, direct to her from Bull City Flavors, to help her out, in getting started.
I’ve also RECEIVED all kinds of stuff from your guys IN RETURN. Cotton, tanks, mods, juices, discontinued flavors, coils, wire, etc., etc., etc. You guys were, and are generous. I had almost forgotten about this practice, when I had an upcoming massive flavor series to review, and I was running low on cotton, and said some random crap about that, and BAMM, out of the blue, I get loads of KGD cotton shipped out by another member. It MADE my day, as I tore right into it, and started using it !!!
I say we KEEP this practice going, and KEEP it going, as I truly feel that even though times are a chagin’, we WERE better off, when we did it more often.
What do you guys think ??
