    no worries.. just trying to keep every one safe, and not sorry..
    others may view it differently.. but i know how i feel.. anything i post out in the open here on site.. is free game..
    my recipes have gone world wide more than once.. however..
    if i catch anyone selling tho.. i will stop posting and contact an attorney..
    i already did for one b&m.. these are given freely, so others might learn from my mistakes :)

    What's working well for me is using hotrods calculator and saving the "portable folder" in my dropbox folder. Inventory and recipes are saved, encrypted, private, and accessible anywhere! Well with a PC anyway. I often copy/paste a recipe text or entire thread into a new recipe's notes and dial & click in the details/ingredients later when it's time to mix. Before I was using a phone app which worked ok but I like this backup solution muuuch better, and this app can grow with me, so many features and tools. I recommend the portable version, PM me if you need help <3 I don't have to do anything twice anymore and need to share this loooove

    Some people like index cards too, more ideas for your recipe vault management... almost grabbed a rolodex at a garage sale for my vape station. Shoulda.

    If you feel like reading a novel, grab your tooter and read on... Some of my favorite juices were from a vendor that stopped selling anything DIY or juice related, and 3 years later I asked/emailed if he still had the recipe for a few of the juices I remembered. His recipe book was lost during a relocation. I get sick when I see the email in my inbox, so much research and strokes of genius - gone.

    One way to somewhat protect your work, and at least show it is yours and "your's first" is to start a blog with your recipes.

    Publish your recipe on your blog first.......then post on forums an hour or so later.

    That way, you have timestamps on your blog.

    Place a small statement on your blog that your recipes will be duplicate posted on *forum of your choice* (insert name here) and that appearances on other internet sites require permission.

    That is pretty much incontrovertible evidence of ownership. A blog will be primary source, and you will simply be "copying your recipe" to forums in as goodwill sharing.

    It also provides you with 2 sources to show that recipes were lifted w/out permission.

    I think this is the common wisdom for foodies sharing confection recipes on Facebook too. This kind of consideration will hopefully be a part of vaping community culture in the future, all willing.

    That sounds great on paper but how is that going to stop someone from profiting from your hard work??

    Let's Just Say: I am a crooked ejuice vender making my own juices. I take one of HIC's recopies and name it something different. HIC call's it "X" and I call it "Y". How is anyone going to know that I stole the "Y", ( that I make and sell to $20) from HIC??

    True.. and couldn't they just change one ingredient and it be "there's" again by adding or subtracting a drop or something? I think the recipes are going to have to end up being completely secret.... or it will get boosted. Am I missing something?

    Apologies for resurrecting a dead (albeit stickied) post, but you've given me an idea @cjcaddy. With a few people talking about not sharing recipes anymore because of copying/reposting/reattributing/etc., and your mention of cooks and bakers, how about a bunch of people got together and made a book of e-juice recipes, and sold it? I know it wouldn't stop the copying, and might be an idea dead in the water because of that, but at least there's a higher chance of getting paid for recipes/combinations.

    One of the best cookery books I've ever come across is The Flavour Thesaurus, and it would be great to get something like that for juices, possibly interspersed with actual recipes; or maybe mostly recipes with interesting flavour combinations as the minor part.

    Just a thought...Would anyone be up for this?

    HIC, Did you finally finish purging all of your rec's from the forum so you can sell them?
    You left a lot of posts that said; "."
    Kind if lame IMHO. Although I really liked your FA flavor reviews.
    I don't really mind because we don't have the same kind of taste buds.

    If you had followed along at the time, you'd know those were mostly recipes I had over on ecx prior to 2015, when I was pretty new to DIY. None of them are recipes I use or list anywhere else now, and I've added more here on VU since then. Sometimes manufacturers change their flavorings & they don't work the same way in recipes; new/better flavorings become available that make old recipes obsolete; new info is released about flavoring components that many chose to avoid; and to put it nicely, not all recipes stand the test of time. Who wants something they no longer feel is good out there with their name on it? I don't. If you have never mixed a batch of a recipe you developed years ago and realized it simply doesn't work any more, you're light years ahead of me. (You'll notice my notes on FA flavors also change frequently. That's because I'm constantly trying new DIY ideas & new flavorings, thus discovering new qualities in the flavorings I use.)

    Hi HIC,
    Goods points, well made, as always!
    Have been reading your posts since 2014. :)
    I agree with you, been playing with LB vanilla ice cream recently.
    What do you think about the Inawera's reformulations?
