Just received a trophy at CPF! :-)

Sooo, after briefly taking another peek at the LiitoKala 26650-50A+Bs review at CandlePuckerForums, I decided to post here: Best 14500 batteries

I had to re-register, my old account was disabled for unknown reasons, or I can't remember what happened, yet my suspicion now is related with what goes forward.

Summary of my answer:

  • An HKJ's tests discharge curve for the Windyfire IMR14500s.
  • A link to Windyfire's site: http://www.windyfire.com/windyfire-imr.html
  • A mention about a BLF mate who got an $5.35 shipping quote for three button top IMR14500s.

Clicked “submit” (or whatever), and got a message telling me my post first had to undergo moderator approval…

A while later, I came back to the site, and look at what I found (along with a pic of my exultant face):

WINNER!

Haven't received my paycheck yet, though. 

 

Cheers fellows Party

Sorry? 

Anyway, those who oppose love & light are the real losers, imho.

Lol didn’t know CPF was that bad. Have been a member there for a long time and had no problems but had heard lots of complaints from various other forums.

Glad I found this forum and see lots of knowledgeable people here modding lights and programming circuit board and sharing their work which I learn heaps.

I’m sure u won’t miss a thing from CFP Big Smile hhaah

I haven’t been to CPF since they started stomping out budget lights many years ago, can’t even remember my user name.

Lol, if this place was like some of the less civilized forums I have visited I can imagine people creating accounts over there to suggest legitimate budget alternatives to their overpriced lights just to see how quickly they get banned. (I am NOT suggesting anyone actually do this though, no need to create unnecessary division even if it seems like it’s warranted)

Wow. While the post and picture made me chuckle I can’t help but feel that is a pathetic bunch of people running that forum. Paranoid that you’re a shill, come on now.

I am not at all surprised that they were so unpleasant to you. The moderation is oppressive.

My guess is that you were seen as a threat to their advertisers and hence their income stream. Kerching!

This post is certified vegan.
Be nice to unpleasant people, it really annoys them.

Fellows, as I said in the opening post, I registered much earlier (early 2014) on that forum with the same nick I use here. Some months ago I logged in, without finding any relevant warnings. My account was disabled, though (not even able to edit my profile nor change anything).

Can't remember if I ever made a post there. Maybe, as a n00b, asked or said something “stupid” back then (like how cool is the Ultrafire SK98 flashlight, got one plus a chinese charger and a couple of LG 18650B4 batteries for ≈$20 back then). LoL!

I think considering it a badge of honor is a good idea.
Date you’ll miss them: Never.
Date some people will unsaddle from their very high horse and stop acting like petty dictators: Never.
We’re glad you’re here.

Vinh is the only one who makes it worthwhile to maintain an account there. Granted, he’s the exact opposite of budget, but he’s a good guy and he does really good work.

My .02c:

In my house I have my own rules too… You don’t follow my house rules and out you go.

Cpf, and Blf, and other forum, have rules too.

In my house I have my interests to nurture and protect, so does CPF and BLF.

In fact, I started on CPF, then here.

Rules are different in each house, but they will always be there, regardless how good, or not, they are to me.

Peaceful co-existence is not a bad idea, IMO.

A lot of off topics and non flashlight related chit chat here. You are all warned. I’m closing this thread.

I still hang out on cpf some. I don’t hate it there, but I only use it for cpf-type stuff. Both of these communities have a place, even though one of them is definitely a lot more friendly and laid back, and honestly just more fun to be here. But sometimes cpf fills a need too.

That said, this afternoon Chrome started labeling it as a known phishing site and blocking connections. And now its “closed” altogether. So I don’t know what’s going on over there but they seem to be having some issues.

Probably just some guy working for Google got banned there, and now it’s payback time or something.

Actually he’s on here too:

Not too active, but I’m sure he’ll answer PMs once he receives the notification email.

What, we can’t do BLF night hikes? There’s plenty of us around. Oh, and congratulation on the smack down.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?
