    Why don't BHW make a separate section for Giveaways, it would be organized, hence members can take benefit and also Mods can monitor thos threads easily...

    What say...?

    I think the giveaways are fine in the regular sections. :) I dont think we need a new section for them. Mods dont actively monitor 24/7, mostly just respond to reports, so I dont think it would necessarily make their job easier.

    yes now a days lots of people offering "Giveaways".. some posting in blackhat seo,some in white hat seo and some in link building..

    so its better to make separate "Giveaway Section" so that everyone can take benefits and it would be more organised :)

    I think he means all the [FREE] threads who are giving out links, SB's etc.

    Idea is not bad ,

    Don't think that's a good idea. We don't want to turn this into a freebie forum. This isn't DP and there are more than enough leechers here already. We want to attract smart marketers, not people hoping for a freebie.

    If you have a product to give away, you can use the downloads section.

    If you have a service to "give away" then you are either: whoring yourself out to get rep or should have a BST thread...

    I like the idea.
    Sometimes it gets confusing as to where should a particular type of giveaway be posted. A separate section would do a world of good.

    What sort of a comment is that?
    Someone is providing something for free and you are insulting that person because you think he's doing all that for rep? Come on, this is just forum, no one would ever be that serious about rep points here.
    I've been doing some giveaways myself and this is the first time I've seen a BHW member posting something like that. *sigh*

    You are naive if you think people don't take rep seriously. Check out my sticky in the lounge a few months ago.

    There's nothing wrong helping people for free, I do it all the time. What I don't like is people who start "free" threads and then ask for thanks/rep/itrader or try to upsell their services to bypass BHW BST rules. You might not do it, but it happens ALL the time.
