    Sorry about the recent downtime for some individuals on the forum.

    We are working on some exciting upgrades to the forum in the coming months and needed to perform some maintenance.

    Up and running now.

    PS if you have any ideas how to improve / add to BHW please submit them here.

    If it was needed then it is understandable.

    A Section to upload our own themes ;) jk. Though, I wouldn't mind contributing a new modern theme.

    How about a chat room or a IM (instant messenger)
    We got to exchange information and then contact the buyer or seller.

    IM in BHW will save the time and opportunity will increase.

    Just my 2 cents

    I think it would be a cool feature if we could filter posts by users..

    example:
    original poster post #1
    1st reply to thread
    2nd reply to thread
    original poster post #2
    3rd reply to thread
    4th reply to thread
    original poster post #3
    5th reply to thread
    6th reply to thread
    original poster post #4
    ----------------------
    filter post by poster: op
    (button available next to the bottom buttons like thanks)
    ----------------------
    end result:
    original poster post #1
    original poster post #2
    original poster post #3
    original poster post #4
    ----------------------
    also ability to drag the quick reply box in the right corner to enlarge textbox

    The first things that come to mind whenever i think about this is adding sections for member's questions and another for journals. when i first joined this forum a couple years ago, you could go to any given section really, and have a wealth of information infront of you, but nowadays i can't say the same. now don't get me wrong, there's still tons of useful info here and i mean tons, but alot of sections are being overrun with questions and journals.

    so, i'm thinking that for every section (make money, cpa, adsense, etc..) there could be a subsection where everyone can ask their questions about whatever they want to know that's related to the section they're in. then keep the main sections for methods and informative post. i'm sure it would be a challenge keeping things clean and making sure everyone's posting the right things in the right sections, but it would improve the quality of things around here and make good information easier to find.

    now about journals, i don't have anything against someone wanting to keep a journal, but i don't think they should be taking up space in the informative sections either. so, i think there should be a new section made so people can post their journals to and keep up with them. it would be beneficial to plenty of people to since they can learn from what the person keeping the journal is doing and the mistakes to avoid. in the end, it would benefit most people here, money making sections would be less cluttered, and people that are interested in following journals would find it easier to find them and keep up with them.


    just a couple of ideas.. ;)

    #1 I think that a chat bar like that one in facebook would be nice :) For only our friends in here. Yeah I know, we have the other general chat already but I hate it in there, nothing useful. I'm thinking that people would even chose their friends in here more careful, and prolly people won't open a new thread asking silly questions. Yes I know, PM is good too, but that should do when the other one is offline :) I used to have that on a forum of mine, and noticed that the quality of the threads increased (by not seeing anymore too many stupid threads; even if that was just slightly, but i noticed it)

    #2 Medals. Defiantely people should get medals xD Very small ones just under the rep.. and medals for something like..thread of the month/week/year or for saving the cyber whale~ where people can vote and nominate a thread~

    #3 Definitely something I always loved on forums: MOODS! So that I can know that I am talking with a guy who is in a angry mood or a lazy one, stoned or crying, depressed or wired ~ something like that :) It does help a bit in the relation between people.. lol
    #4 The noob discussions category should be good enough too :) We can filter even better the forum :)

    #5
    I agree with evilman11, I think that people should have the possibility to make like their own~ blog or personal pages about journals.. or if not, even make a new category for all these type of journals and success stories~

    Agreed.

    It would be awesome if there was a live chat room section, where people could chat instead of sending PMs back and forward.

    Other than that +++ kick azz

    That feature is actually already there!

    What you have to do is this:

    1. Go to a sub-forum. You'll see a list of threads.
    2. Next to the thread title column is a "Replies" column.
    3. Click on the no. of replies you see
    4. A window pops up showing the users who have posted in a particular thread with the no of posts
    5. Now, click on the no of posts of the desired user and you'll get what you wanted! ;)

    But how about a chat room outside of BHW so that when BHW goes down, we still can chat over there!

    Domain sales, website sales section that users need to pay $20 to list on and the website ownership must be verified of course and mods must approve the listing.
