Hey everybody,

Over the last 7 years this forum has grown exponentially. With your help, We have created a community of Kratom enthusiasts to come together and discuss the industry. The traffic that this site has received has been exciting but also overwhelming. All the while the site grew a little out of date. Over the last few weeks we have updated the platform of the Forum as well as the face of the forum. CHECK OUT THAT NEW LOGO!!! sweet right?!


We could use your help though...

Hello all! As you have noticed as ilovekratom has begun to get more and more members we are having lots of unapproved vendors not reading the rules or just blatantly breaking the rules positing advertising without going through the approval process. If you see this please report these members as keeping the community solid is very important to contain the integrity of the site. The vendors here who did go though the approval process and took the necessary steps to do it properly deserve this respect. Thank you to all the vendors who took the time to do things the correct way and thank you to all the members of the community who try to help ensure that we stand by these rules that are set in place. Everyone have a wonderful day!

These are in the rules section.: "If you are a Vendor and not yet approved, you may post as well but it must be in the proper section." Doesn't this mean that unapproved vendors ARE allowed to post things?? I don't know I'm kind of new to this forum. Just a question. I've been using kratom for more than five years and I've searched hi and low for good vendors, I enjoy getting kratom from new sources, I've never bought from kratomkarma, but I may in the future their stuff looks reasonably priced!

Since I've been on this forum which has been a while we have always steered unapproved vendors from posting advertising on the forum until they took the proper steps of becoming approved. There is a difference between a vendor who contacts ilovekratom and starts the process and then ilovekratom actually designates them as preapproved vendors. Preapproved does technically mean unapproved. For those preapproved vendors I can understand that they should be allowed to post things just in the correct places. But some someone who creates an account and their first post is advertising.... It's just not right and doesn't uphold the integrity of the forum and also disrespects the entire approval process that ilovekratom has in place.

I think the idea is, anyone can post a comment, but not an unapproved free SPAM ad for your company or sales operation. I ban those guys when I see them, but I can't be hear all hours of the day and night.

Thanks for your comment. I believe you are correct. What they are doing is violating the intent of the concept of "Approved Vendors" -- someone who visitors to this site can reasonably expect to be trustworthy.
