    Hello guys.

    This will be my last post in BHW. I will leave IM.

    This is a fantastic Industry, but unfortunately I didn't make much money, so I made the decision to "retire" from IM.
    I've been around for almost three years, and I've learned a lot. Not only about IM, but about people, also. And I found people here that are amazing :)

    A few weeks ago I made the mistake of posting something about EWA, and my rep went drastically down, and even if I share some stuff here, the rep will chase me forever.
    Regarding of that post, I owe an apology to everyone who was scammed by them. My intention was not to piss off people, so please accept my apologies.

    Regarding what BWH gave me, I need to say that this was a pleasant experience. I didn't post much, but for year and a half I came here every single day, to read what you guys had to say. Thanks for sharing your ideas, knowledge, friendship and experience.

    THANKS FOR TWO GREAT YEARS OF MY LIFE.

    See you around. Try to enjoy life. There's only one.

    Oliver

    Take care!

    FYI...it's just a reputation on a message board...doesn't have to mean the end of a career.

    I actually couldn't care less when someone quit IM (Nothing personal. :)) but I just can't understand how someone would give up on something like this and get a 9-5 job instead.

    It's just something I couldn't imagine someone that has discovered the wonderful world of IM to do...

    But of course, if you haven't got a steady income in 2 years, I would myself seek an offline job, BUT, I still would invest some of those money into IM until I can quit my offline job. (Just as I'm trying to do atm.)

    But anyways, have a great life offline. :) Cheers and bye

    hell for all the people he scammed.

    personally i dont bother about the rep/points system because it doesn't
    change who you are as a person weather it goes up or down.

    internet keyboard commandos .

    Well hope you build up good offline reputation. If you get negative rep'd offline, don't see where you would go from there... LETA!

    +rep from me :)

    If there's not any specific reason, I have only one question : What made you give up so easily ? If you give up like this every time, I can guarantee, you won't achieve anything in your life. You have -105 points, big deal, who cares ? The only thing I wanna say to you before you leave, Internet has much more potential than any 9-5 job does, if you are leaving because you didn't make any good money, watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UuyZDiCCng&feature=player_embedded and than leave if you want :)

    Mods.... Ban him now before he changes his mind!

    But seriously... I look at the quality of a persons post to decide if they are legit. Rep and thanks have nothing to do with it cause even the lamest person can post a gem.

    Dont give up on IM, just put it on the back burner and stir it every now and again. I have a part time job now and everywhere I look and see something cool, I am looking for a way to exploit it online. I may not take action but I put it on that back burner.

    Good luck anyway you quitter!.... LOL!

    Pull yourself together and get back in the game. I just gave you + rep. Start applying some of the things you learned and help a few people and your rep problem will be gone.

    Rep doesnt mean much by the way...last time I checked I had more Rep than Diamond Damien.....that kinda tells you all you need to know.

    No offence but giving up so easily on anything won't take you anywhere atleast IM. If you leave IM today, you will leaving something else tomorrow!

    IM is easy for those who try, fail, try, fail, try, fail ... ... ... and then succeed and never look back!

    Cheer up, browse the methods section and start working. Try out a few times and I am sure you will succeed!
    Hit me up if you need any help. And always remember the first rule of success, Never give up!
