    Who tried to sell in every thread you can see in BHW?

    If it isn´t about a fan page, or design or, or accounts. They are everywhere and they haven´t been here for more than 1-2 weeks.

    Where all those coming from? Yes DP for sure, but..
    I can´t sit and report all those all days. :)

    I suggest to all, report everyone that tries to hijack other threads, or trying to sell something, either in forum or in PM.

    Let´s get rid of those NOW.

    Tnx!

    WizGizmo acts real quick to PM spam!

    Just forward the PM to him and he will take care of it! :)

    For other things, I too just keep reporting! :)

    I saw like 3 sales thread on other forums yesterday!! Not to mention one of it was live for more than 15 mins! Moderation should get it quicker I suppose :D

    I'm already reporting and taking down those kinda threads and replies whenever i come across them.

    Well so far i reported 6 Threads and 9 Posts today. All of them were gone.

    I won't say our moderation needs to be quicker as all mods are taking action instantly. All we need is our members should Use report button whenever applicable.

    Instead of just deletion of their post, I wish those noobs should be banned right away for a week or so for abusing the forum

    What if this forum is turned into an invite only board. If it's made a bit more exclusive, then more people will want to get into it. If someone keeps inviting members who keep breaking rules, then that member should receive a warning about bad invites.

    In theory that should greatly increase the quality of this place. Feel free to punch holes, I'm just brainstorming.

    That sounds Good. But if its invite only board, Visitors coming through search engines and other forums can't turn into buyers. People Selling Stuffs on Services for Sale section will experience a Massive decline on Sales.

    Although the private forum stuff sounds delightful, you are exactly right... LOL.... And we agree with everything said on this thread... well, except for the newb who um... tried to make a joke, i hope..... LOL... Oh and they are not only pm-ing sales sometimes, or taking over threads, we have gotten messages over the ims..... Which is getting ridiculous... What do they do, scroll around the forums and find someone to spam? Man, that must take some time....

    And even though we may give a few a chance, they don't even deliver... One guy was selling some emails, and we made an order, and he said when he would have them done... Haven't heard from him since... LOL, its making us cynical, like why even bother?

    Anyways, just a 2 cents...

    Thanks for all your replies guys.
    For a moment i thought i was the only one who report when i see something that should´t be here. I guess the Moderators do something about it, as soon as they got news about it.
    But sometimes you have to wait for 7-8 hours.

    Tnx once again!

    Have to give credit to the mods really

    Big buddy
    Hexla
    And WizGizmo

    They are the top three in my opinion, there might be others but they seem to remain hidden compared to the above guys

    Yeah I had someone PM me to try and convince me to pay $60 to get them to install Xrumer on my PC. That is all very well, but I will never give anyone access to my machine if I don't know them or can't see them in person, let alone give them access to my machine and send unknown amounts of potential viagra spam with xrumer. If I want xrumer (yes, I do, once I have completed some client's work + fiverr) I will buy it myself etc.

    Don't ever give a total stranger access to your PC, unless you really know them or you have met them in person etc...
