    There seems to be a great trade in BHW accounts.

    I think it is about time something is done about it, as it appears to be getting out of control.

    Any account that has not been signed into for 18 months should receive an email that their account will be closed unless they sign in within 4 weeks.

    All new accounts should be put on a probation for 6 months and if they do not contribute or are active/sign in then they should also be closed.

    It is clear that people are starting accounts with the intention of selling them.

    This is just an idea but these puppet accounts WILL have a negative effect on BHW.

    I am agreed with OP i have seen people buying and selling aged BHW accounts. Some people buy old accounts so they can post links and do spamming.

    Yes, I know that some ppl who post a lot and post offtopics sell accs. Maybe the way to reduce it could be monetizing registrations? Like $5.00 per registration. Don't want to make any similars to WF, but I think it could save this forum from TOTALLY lazy newbies that want to be spoonfed.

    Thanks

    How is the suggestion of putting a price on the accounts going to deter those who already pay for them? :)

    I don't think my suggestions would totally eradicate the problem but at least it would push up the value of my account.
    I am looking for 3 grand if anybody is interested.

    $7 is indeed an earth shattering amount. I had to meditate on the top of a mountain in Tibet for 6 months alone with a just a parrot for company to avoid such a temptation. :)

    I agree that something should be done about it but what exactly would have to be discussed by the forum superiors.

    Shit just got way out of hand when they started offering $400 for just a few months old account. I had no idea that BHW accounts had such huge market.

    [​IMG]

    Although I have to agree with part of the OP, I have to point out that there may be a few accounts which have a legit reason for not signing in. Could be anything from family problems to health issues to actually forgetting that he ever created an account. I know its the same old "Give them a break!" story.

    Limiting sign ups would be an option but then again not feasible as we would still be punishing innocent people.

    Thanks for bringing this up,
    RW.

    Do you really need two separate signatures?

    heres why i think bhw wouldnt go for it
    lets say of the 500,000 members probably
    5-10k are active from time to time.

    as a forum relies on stats do u think the owners like to
    see, bhw - 10k members - or bhw 500,000 members

    even though we all no probably 80% of the account on
    bhw are dead - no longer used - double accounts
    for banned members
