    I am quite new to this and i think BHW is brilliant, at the moment i haven't tried anything as i am researching, i have found BHW as a good way to do this, some of the ideas i have seen on here are genious and when i learn more i could end up making some good money from some of the ideas you have given out, so as for closing it off i disagree, or at least not to us noobs anyways.

    I can't remember if I posted here or not, but I'd vote for paying a fee. $10 a month is chump change, and the information here is wealthy. I'm going to get a Jr. VIP account one of these days...

    I agree, we should close there to prevent scumbags, leechers and making money with $1

    I vote to keep it open to the public because there are always new people who could contribute and can possibly teach us something we don't kno. Besides I hate paying monthly fees. I hate commitments!

    I think BHW should remain free, "open" registration should be closed completely. Maybe a system where people could be invited by Junior. VIP's, someone else also posted this suggestion. Or a system where when someone registers they are required to submit a letter about themselves as to why they would like to join BHW, what they hope to gain from BHW and what they have to contribute to the community. These could be reviewed and denied\accepted. Just my 2 cents :D

    As a registered member for sometime, I feel comfortable with a $9.00 a month fee.
    My God, the available downloads and the make money techniques and tips alone are worth
    the price. I vote to charge a monthly fee.

    BHW should have an invite only system and also a low quality post button like someone suggested. I think the main problem is that there are too many people trying to get post counts up or people who lurk and never contribute.

    Kick everyone with under 5 posts out.

    Close registrations unless they pay $500 fee.

    I gotta say I'm impressed with the content thats on here. Why not keep your current members and start charging a fee?

    I came across this post just after I logged in to draft a post about a method I found to auto post to a million blogger sites from one blog without the use of feedmyinbox. As you can see, I am a super noob in this community but I can't describe in words the respect I have for some of the members after reading just about every thread I could find. I am nothing special but I want to contribute.

    I would never have found this place had it not been for the G, I would never have been able to join had there been a membership fee. I live in South Africa and everything is x10 for us so I wouldn't have been able to afford it.

    I was a member of a forum of a free dating script. They had lots of techie types in the membership and would promote members who contributed towards the project. I became an insider even though I could not afford it by creating a skin for a chat script and creating a simple php adsense module. I know there is some system like that on here but it is post-count based but perhaps it should be based on thanks or something.

    More often than not physical contribution, not from the wallet, creates a far stronger feeling of community and keeps out the vultures.

    Keep it open but have requirements to become an "insider". Give incentive to share, contribute and help.

    I don't think u should make members pay a fee as that would cause a shortage of valuable information as less people would want to share ideas if their paying.

    What I propose is that you close off BHW from new members and allow new registration by invites only.
    Also, you should delete inactive members from the system

    I defiantly agree to the part of making it closed to non-members but give already members access. Close it from public...Our own little private Black Hat World :D. lol
