    Are group buy threads allowed in BHW? If yes, what's the best section to post them.

    P.S
    There's nothing (or at least I am not able to find anything) in Forum Rules.


    Why I propose this suggestion:
    There are scripts/softwares that are not crackable like M*b*rak's mods for Interspire, Oz*ki server etc. They are very expensive and they're not shared on any forum til now and I don't think someone will share it on any forum.

    Suggestion:
    You guys can manually approve GB threads of those scripts/software that most of the people can't afford to get. You guys can also set the minimum membership level limit to post threads in that section.

    Nope . . . Sorry, but they are not allowed.

    Thanks for asking first though. :)

    Any particular reason for not allowing them?
    Any chance(s) of allowing them in future?

    There are a number of reasons. For one thing, I have seen group buys go bad
    on other forums where, in the middle of a group buy, someone uploads the
    product for free, and of course that blows the whole thing out the window.

    Also, I have seen people fight over mistrust about the money too.

    It's just not worth the hassle.

    You are welcome to suggest that idea in the Forum Suggestions & Feedback section.

    I can't guarantee that you will get an Admin's approval, but you are welcome to try.

    You're suggesting me to open a new thread? *confused* (this thread is also posted in Forum Suggestions & Feedback section)

    Sorry . . . My bad . . . Busy night tonight. :)

    I suppose this thread will be sufficient here.
