We received a question about why when a member adds a new list to the site, we also create a personal list for them with the same items in the same order. We do this for a number of reasons.
First, we have received multiple complaints from people who after adding a top ten list, find out that their original ordering has changed. Granted, this is the nature of the site, but people still sometimes get upset. Having a personal version of your list gives you a copy of your original that will be unaffected by the popular vote.
Second, people have expressed a desire to reorder their lists after they have been submitted and approved. We don’t do this because doing so would run counter to the public opinion methodology of ranking items on the site. Instead, with a personal list, you can go back and edit the list at any time in case your tastes change or you discover something new. Plus, since we are now incorporating personal lists into the ranking system, when you reorder your existing list, your new reordering will have an effect on the main list.
So, given how many people want complete control of their lists on the site and the fact that there is no real downside, we figured the best option was to automatically create a personal copy of all new lists added by members so they didn’t have to do it manually.

Our Stance on Electronic Cigarettes
Many of us who have successfully quit, have done so with the help of electronic cigarettes. Many of us have tried other methods to quit smoking, such as the patch, nicotine gum, or even cold turkey. Those attempts generally ended in relapse.
Finally, a product was introduced that revolutionized smoking cessation the e cigarette. Non smokers don t realize that the allure of smoking isn t just the nicotine, but also the ritual. Smokers enjoy the actions of holding up a cigarette to their lips and taking a drag of smoke. Although you don t have to fumble with a lighter, e cigs give the vaper almost the same experience as tobacco cigarettes. Although personally we feel that vaping is much more sophisticated that smoking. After all, discovering fire is a little primitive.
E Cigarettes are a Miracle in Harm Reduction
At the very least, electronic cigarettes help to reduce harm. The vapor that e cigarettes produce is much safer than tobacco smoke, which contains more toxins than you would imagine. Unlike secondhand cigarette smoke, secondhand e cig vapor is rather harmless. It may contain a small trace of nicotine, but nothing to worry about. In fact, recent studies have shown that nicotine isn t any more addicting or harmful than caffeine. It s the other chemicals contained in tobacco smoke that is harmful.
At Quit Smoking Community, we believe that electronic cigarettes are currently the most effective way to quit smoking. We say this from our own personal experiences as well as the countless success stories that we have heard from all over the globe.
The Truth About E Cigs
We feel that there are a lot of misconceptions about e cigarettes. In fact, a lot of the stigma on smoking has been unfairly passed onto vaping. It is time to think of vaping as the opposite of smoking. Vaping is the future, and it will bring smoking to an end.
When first trying to make the switch from smoking to vaping, it can become overwhelming. There are so many brands out there. How do you know which one is the best?
