    - We have strong moderation tools available right now and some great moderators but we always need help. When you see any spammers/bots/5dollaradaymethod threads report them and they will be dealt with.

    - The move is happening Tobbe co VB is on it's way out.

    How about fixing the search function? For example, search "seo", nothing will come up. :)

    Never mind on what I typed recently because I have it all sorted now. All I can say is it's exciting to see
    the ambitious direction our community is headed in when you consider a conference that's a first of it's
    kind along with a revamp.

    I will see what I can think of and if its of value I will be sure to share it and see what others think of it.

    Long live BHW!

    More than anything else, I'm intrigued about this new platform BHW is going to move to. It's a welcomed change in my opinion, if done well (which I trust it will be).

    Enabling more filtering search control would be a nice touch

    The worse and frustrating part is when members are made to wait while the great site is unavailable due to any reason, esp when it is under a ddos type of attack, for example. Though those situations are not frequent now, they were some time back.

    I hope and pray that the new platform will provide the best security-related features, and they will be able to defend our site strongly and successfully. Please take care to add all the best of security features on BHW. Good luck, and wishing all the success to BHW!

    Also, I hope that in such conditions, if any, BHW will keep the members informed about the progress through its Facebook page promptly so that the member don't feel as frustrated, as staying 'alive' on BHW almost 24x7x365/366 is a happy lifestyle for most of them, including yours truly! :)

    Anyways, wishing you every success! Cheers! :)

    that's coz vb setting doesn't allow it.

    also make sure in the new version we get notified when someone quotes us or @diamonddiamen type notification like in xenforo

    What for? That way any acc. will beg for rep. Removing that feature was a great move.

    For Damien.

    I would like to see that new or old BST's will be more carefully checked, because 70% of them are crap. IDK, find a way, a system to spot the bad ones. Even if the seller is paying something to list a service, mods should pay more attention (I know they are doing a great job already).
