1. Welcome to Thailand Vapers, an English language forum for members in Thailand and the rest of Asia to talk about vaping.
    Commonly referred to as e-cigarettes, vaping is really about the use of personal vaporizers (mods) and atomizers (tanks, clearos, RBAs, RDAs, RTAs) filled with e-liquid.
    Are you looking to get started or an old hand at vaping? Everyone is welcome here so sign up today and talk vaping with us!

    This is crucially important. All members are implored to read and unanimously agree.

    Darth Vaper is statistically the greatest member of this forum.

    That is correct. It has been said right here.

    Why is this fact not universally and innately known? Because the deserving is being snubbed from rightful recognition by the prejudiced system of member notability rating.

    Don't believe it? See for yourselves. Visit the MEMBERS section of the forum. There you will find many members recognized and ranked from 1 to 20. Very nice. So?

    So?! - - Where is Darth? Surely there must be some mistake. You must all have immediately had the same thought. Obviously. This is the most natural reaction and what we need to fix.

    Yes, we can agree that this is another completely ludicrous post made extra verbose with maybe a few sentences of actual content. No contest there. But in all seriousliness, if members are ranked by simply the number of posts then the logical conclusion would be to post as often as possible with little to no concern for the quality of the content - whatsoever. Observe the horrors that await you if this does not serve as a sobering warning.

    If the quality of posts were measured by a very simple equation from statistical data already available, we should all see clearly that Darth Vaper is the #1 member of the forum and must be recognized as such immediately.

    Here is how the present injustice is easily proven: Take the "so called" top 3 members presently enjoying their patently false positions on the list.
    1. -V-
    2. Siam Diesel
    3. Rick-O-Shea
    The volume of posts created by each member is 9,399, 4,811 and 3,748 respectively. Now consider the LIKES received for these posts. We find, 2,050 given to -V-, 2,570 bestowed upon Siam Diesel and 2,369 to Rick-O-Shea. Yeah, so? You may say.

    So, if we were to derive a score by dividing the likes received by the number of posts created a much truer measurement as to who is really the most liked member will become undeniably obvious.

    1. -V- = 0.21810830939461644855835727205022
    2. Siam Diesel = 0.5341924755768031594263146954895
    3. Rick-O-Shea = 0.63207043756670224119530416221985
    Tells a different story, no? (-V- you will always be #1 in our hearts... please see that the necessity for this demonstration is to declare Darth Vaper as rightfully the winner of ThailandVapers.com in service to the TRUTH and not to devalue your position in any way - - intentionally)

    By now you must be wondering just how right Darth is about all of this... Well, Darth Vaper earns a majestic sized score of - - wait for it - - yes, yes... wha-what? n-noooooooooo!!!! Crap, it was higher a minute ago! Quick, everyone like this post! That's an order! It is COMMANDED! NO! NOO!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    (ahem)

    Ok... the point has been made. Laughing time is over. Darth earned a man-sized 0.8922305764411027568922305764411 which is still the highest calculated so far. Just not as rugged and domineering as ranking above the 90th percentile... but still,

    This grave injustice cannot persist any longer.

    (Really reaching here... apologies in advance.)

    One of the mods has to remove DV's posting rights until he can confirm he's back on his medication.

    P.S. I've liked your OP DV, I hate to see someone in distress ;)

    According to this here calendar inside the ol' helmet, it is the Sunday after a vape meet.

    That don't make a lick of sense.

    Weird- but so many members have identical ( 113) Trophy Points-whatever they are?

    Until the Great Dictator brought this post to our attention, I had never, ever visited this section-this will probably be the last.
