    Hey guys...

    Ive just realised ive reaching 200 posts, it only seems like yesterday i wrote a stupid thread wanting to take over bhw (dont ask) and i thought it fitting to add at least some of my experiences and hopefully they will help the newer members around the forum....

    Not in any particular order btw....

    1.Dont piss off the mods by putting posts and threads in places they shouldnt be, it annoys the hell out of em...

    2.Dont write silly little posts like"thanks mate" or "nice post"..again, you'll piss of the mods...

    3.Stop reading and start doing!!..Spending all day reading all the info in here is all great and that, but when you find you've been online for 8 hours and havent done anything except read it, you wont get anywhere, you have to at least do something...anything...just dont sit passively and complain that you cant make money!!!

    4.Use the search button!!!...The amount of useful info in here is unreal, some of its hidden away, and yes you might have to read a few threads to get what your looking for, but as long as you do actually try and find what your looking for FIRST,then your more likely to be helped out by someone.

    5.Make contacts/friends...Ok were all here to make money, but i have to admit i've made a few good mates in here too, but what starts off as a friendship can quickly build into a jv or something similar, so you get the best of both worlds!!...

    6.If your readin a make money method DONT be the one who writes a post saying "this didnt work"...all because you copied the EXACT method and didnt twist it a little...of course if theres loads of people trying the exact same method its going to get burned out, the ones who'll make money from these are the ones that take the ideas and make them their own...

    7.Try to help other members...ok so you might not be the guy thats making thousands of dollars a week, but maybe you can do something others cant and are having difficulty with, like help with websites, plugins,coding,ad writing, i dont know, anything really, dont be afraid to help a fellow member, karma is ace!!

    8.Dont expect miracles overnight!!- Its a flaw for too many people, it was for me for so long...Just because you threw a site up last week and your not banking $30,000 a week doesnt mean its not going to work.

    9. Please, for the love of god,if a member is selling something, dont ever never ever ever never ask a member for a review copy, its a dp thing and it pisses people off a lot...

    10.If you start something,make sure you see it through to the end. The amount of times ive started something and got half way through before jumping on the next "big thing" is frightening. My domain collection reflects just that. 1 complete and running method is better that 30 half dones....


    Well, thats about it folks, obviously its not ALL ive learned after all this time, but theres not enough space for that, i just thought id add a little something i thought others might find useful....

    Oh and heres another for fun...

    Dont expect a reply in the introductions!!, unless your a genuinly good looking women with a good avatar.

    Take care guys, and thanks for all the help and cheers for a gr8 forum!!

    All the best everyone...

    John:D

    Well said John all are valid points and should be followed, and the biggest one is help fellow members and remember we were all newbies at some point, and the other thing is if you have nothing useful to say don't say anything.

    Thanks

    In my opinion, this one is the best:


    6.If your readin a make money method DONT be the one who writes a post saying "this didnt work"...all because you copied the EXACT method and didnt twist it a little...of course if theres loads of people trying the exact same method its going to get burned out, the ones who'll make money from these are the ones that take the ideas and make them their own...
