    It's only me or those journey's were people are telling their age in the title, started to become annoying ?
    Maybe they are writing their age because it helps them get motivated, anyway i think there's a better alternative for this, instead of writing the age in title, a presentation in the starting thread of the journey would be much better.
    EDIT: i don't say to remove the threads, just don't put the age in title

    I can't agree more...but it's not against BHW's rules, nothing can be done about it I'm guessing.

    I would say to get rid of those Journey threads as a whole.

    Well, thats just MY opinion. :)

    Imo there's nothing wrong with journey threads that are actually full of methods etc. A lot of people get inspiration from those threads, including the person that started the thread.

    Few months back I tried a lot to earn some money online. But I failed and left BHW.
    Recently when I visited BHW I saw these Journey threads.
    Those Journey threads are the ones which inspired me to get back to Money Making .

    No one is forced to read them. It takes a millisecond to scroll past it, which I do. 99% of them give up posting after a week when their site hasn't hit top spot anyway.

    More annoying are the dimwits who wet themselves with excitement when their site gets a page rank of 2 and they got to tell the world about it. No matter their site is on page 7 and getting zip traffic, no, they got a PR2 whoooooo whooooo!

    Hey those are good threads mate but I find it hard that they are 15 years olds thinking so hard about money making schemes.

    Its a public forum.

    BHW won't prosper if admins start making rules for not telling your age and what not.

    And journey threads are always great. I will be shocked if Admins want to get rid of those.

    I would suggest creating a "motivational threads" section where posts doesn't count or just setting a rule that the lounge is the place for these kind of topics

    I don't think they should be gotten rid of. I just think there should be a section for them to stay organized since there are so many as of late.

    I think they can be really beneficial, Wendetta for instance did a very successful CPA journey last year and followed it through to $50 a day.

    However I agree stating your age in threads is just not necessary.

    I love the journey threads, but only when they are created good and with passion like: macbaren, Wendetta, Leith, etc...Completed journeys with high quality are very important and useful. But all these 13/15 (not all of them) years crappy threads where even the original post is less than 10 lines and the person have 0 experience are too poor and boring.

    well I dont care how old they are but it might be inspirational to some, but I prefer if they put in there posts. But however I think journals are great for inspiration

    why what ? i think you`re missing the point i don't say to remove those threads i just say to edit the title's since most of the people wanna get information about the method and not the age of the op, would you feel confortable if everyone would make a thread like this? "25 inches penis journey from nowere to the east cost"
    this all age thing is just to promote a thread, because all the guys ho couldnt achieve succes and are older then that will usually look in that thread
