    So it seems you can be banned pretty easy using this forum in the wrong way as I see many threads saying this member has been banned. I would like tips as far as how I can prevent getting banned as I am not here to spam but use this as a source and resource for my services as well as find other sources. I am planning to use the marketplace however I am not in a rush to make pointless posts to rush it.

    What are the main things to avoid, so far I know posting your own links, and making pointless posts. Anything else?

    The most important thing to avoid is don't try to sell without becoming a Jr VIP first and opening up a BST:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f203-bhw-marketplace-rules-how-post/

    Find the best section for your post and post it there - ONCE. Don't spam it all over the forum.

    Don't abuse other members - you will find people swearing here and there... but don't target it at another member.

    There are others of course... just a couple of tips to keep you out of trouble.

    Yeah I'm on the same boat. This forum is really intimidating to a newcomer like me.

    1. Open communication with all of your clients.
    2. Always have a rainy day fund for your business in case shit hits the fan you can refund a client
    without a shitlist or any other hassles. So many members are banned over a pissy amount of money
    when they should/could have just refunded the client and kept their reputation.

    Common business sense on a business forum is a win win.

    You won't be banned just like that unless It's something major. You will always be warned with a PM sent to you telling you what you have done wrong and how to avoid it in the future.
