    HI BHW Members,

    I hope you guys must be having exciting plans for Christmas. I wish you very happy Christmas in advance.

    Let's share my concern with everyone.To be honest i am the one who got tons of infraction for bumping thread, PVT messages and etc. On the serious note i never done this deliberately but yes, back in 2012 i was doing dodgy stuff to bump the thread but as BHW change their rules significantly now i care so much which is good for both buyer and seller for sure and i personally believe its productive for this forum.

    On the other hand i think BHW made bumping rules so hard even old user like me have to think hundred of times before answering members questions in service thread which i found extremely frustrated.First they made we can only introduce any new offer or promotions once every 24 hours and later on they changed to 72 hours.

    i would like to get attentions of site owner and all admins take example of V7N forum i think if we look few years back V7N was the best form for webmaster talk(Buy & Sell) but with the passage of time they made rules so hard even if you do small mistake they will bann you straight away, LOOK WHERE THEY ARE NOW... Nobody likes them and its been years i never even thought about their forum anymore because no potential left.

    i can see so many bann accounts in BHW now and numbers are growing like hell.As a new user of this forum, BHW made so much restrictions even if new member want to buy any service he cant do it smoothly which i believe biggest barrier for buy and seller.

    i am not saying BHW staff not doing their job properly or kicking user for no reasons but BHW getting hard for everyone specially for me.I am getting infraction and might be i'll be bann soon even i care so much but still mistakes happens.Now i am scared even to answer on my service thread.

    For BHW staff, please dont get offend by this i have seen admin behavior is getting rude which hurt me a bit as old user.if you want to communicate with staff its never easy because they will reply only if they think is worth it, but we as user every message we sent to staff is important for us and we expect response.

    In conclusion, i strongly believe BHW making barriers just to catch few spammers i think this forum should give freedom to buyer and seller, and i know its not gonna happen it will get worst and worst but at least i can raise the concern over infractions.

    Last infraction i received worth 3 point for 6 months "Sending 2 PVT messages to my old customer for new offer" its called REMARKETING but i guess unfortunately one of them didn't like my message or offer and mark as spam.

    Please take this message as feedback.

    CORRECTTION, u can not post in your sales thread for 72 hrs if the last post in
    that thread was yours, then u wait 72 hrs....

    if a buyer asks a question which is after your last post put still inside the 72 hrs
    u can answer it as there is a separate post between your last post and the buyer

    seems fair enough rule has been around a while

    you mean any new post which is nothing to do with members like offers, promotions or discount should be every after 72 hours and we can keep answering members question regardless of 72 hours ? if thats what you saying then i have put the same in thread

    "First they made we can only introduce any new offer or promotions once every 24 hours and later on they changed to 72 hours."

    Please also note that As per BHW rule we cant answer them individuals we need to wait 24 hours and then we can answer all the memebrs questions in combine.

    Also just to save you from infraction warning you can not put website or any advertisement material below your username.I had warning form admin a while ago.

    im not talking about offers....the 72hr rule has been here quite a while
    i will repeat............if u post on your sales thread today, and no1 else posts
    u cant do anything for 3 days, as your post was the last post ude be posting to yourself.

    if, you posted in your sales thread today, and 1/2/3 people all asked questions
    yes u must reply to all 3 in 1 reply, not 1 reply per user, get it

    ive had that txt under my username 2 yrs and i asked permission from a supermod

    rule 1 of bhw if your not sure ask.......and i did......... when ever im unsure
    i always pm 1 of 2 supermods.....

    so to be sure ive sent a pm to Mr Damien see if that rule has changed from 2012 when
    i was told it was ok by a supermod , to now where your saying it shouldnt be there.......
    ide hope i cant be be punished for some txt i was told back then was ok

    ide like to believe with all the friends i dont have, i would have been told after all u cant
    miss my 8000 posts and over the last 2 yrs ive spoke to just about every mod
    supermod and the owner of bhw via pm. sure 1 of them would have said something.

    maybe u did something that pssd them off i dont no...but im off to bed

    Simple Bumping Rules:

    1. Post any offer, free review copies, discounted review copies even though its less than 72 hours.

    2. Buyer/Member queries can be replied anytime.

    You know the reason, for which you got infraction. To be honest, If this is old BHW, we would have been banned you instead infraction.

    Moderators receive tons of pms per day, if it is valid query you will get reply immediately. If it is related to BST edit, contact concern mods who approved your thread , if you did nt get any reply pm other mods.

    We never ban any buyers, unless we found it was review manipulation. Tons of BST threads running smoothly without any issues.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Now i am again confuse you said i can post offer, free review copies, discounted review copies less than 72 hours but check my last infractions i even post after 48 hours but i got infraction but later on i asked admin please review it and after review he reverse the infraction.


    Bigbuddy if i know something which cause infraction god forbid i wont do but this bumping infractions driving me crazy and also send ing private message with remarketing strategy can give me 3 infractions for 6 months its really hard for me to digest.

    it would be much appreciated if you can explain can i make new offer on my current thread.

    the rules are quite simple and easy to follow

    Your problem is you want to break the rules, and get away with it.

    As far as your latest infraction. Sending spam PMs to your old customers. is allowed as long as they don't mind receiving the spam.

    Perhaps instead of spamming them. Get them to opt in to your future offers.

    The rules are there, specifically to stop people like you, from making a mess of the forum

    Not really sure where the confusion is mate. I have offered services here and never had an
    issue with this sort of thing. BHW is actually less strict compared to other forums where you
    have you pay in order to receive a bump.

    BB answered all of your questions and its pretty clear. Your last post on that sales thread
    was 12-11-2014 and in my time zone its 12-14-2014 which is roughly 72 hours so yes
    you can post there once again.

    Cheers!

    Yes, you can post new offers.

    No PM spam allowed in any name (remarketing strategy). If member reports your pm, you will be infracted.

    As nanavlad mentioned, opt them.

    Thats aggressive! you trying to be personal mate.

    i just want to share my thoughts and it would be good for my knowledge and for others as well.

    If my problem is this that i want to break rules i wouldn't even make this thread.I really hate the stuff you said about me but never mind.

    instead of sharing knowledge,feedback and suggestion poeple just want to blame for nothing.if users lets say 70% understand BHW rules and they are happy with it that doesn't mean everyone is happy with it and instead of explaining and educate each other people start insulting.

    For above reason i am going to close this thread.Thanks everyone for being so nice with me.Special Thanks to nanavlad.


    Chill buddy...

    He's not being aggressive or personal, he is stating facts.

    You already said you were doing dodgy stuff in 2012 - and now here you are complaining about your latest infraction.

    2 years later and you still haven't learned - you are still breaking the rules and here you are again, complaining about the rules?

    The fault is not with BHW or the Mods
