    There is something that I have noticed around the forum threads. That is the fact that alot of references of leeching and people not providing any value to the forums.

    Now I myself am also a newbie but my main question is how or what is needed of a newbie with little to no blackhat experience to be able to contribute to the forum???

    Here is a question from me: What incentive do old and experienced users have to post good content here (which might have taken them plenty of hours and lots of money to discover) such that all the newbies and leechers can benefit from them for free, rendering the risk of ruining the methods for everyone?

    That's why is called a forum. So that everyone contributes and shares, not just some of us.

    I think that a good question can have just as much value as a good answer, It's thought provoking and creates discussion in the forum. I've found the people here to be very helpfull
    and if you have any input that is relevant or a question that hasn't already been answered go for it they don't bite. Just remember if you'r going to start a topic use the search first. Use the thanks button don't post thanks unless you have something of value to add with it and if your going to give an opinion make sure it has some substance but I think most of all dont just sit there and do nothing.

    I think its a good idea to listen to all comments and suggestions regardless of status...

    You see, for those who have been doing this for a very long time seem to look at things on an advanced level, which is all good, but sometimes the simplest of ideas may provide a better return.... So what im trying to say is the input from a newbie could actually help the more advanced members...

    In turn the advanced members provide there methods for you to elaborate on and as you advance yourself, your input will help the next generation on newbie's...

    I appreciate your response to my question. It can be frustrating sometimes because alot of the people on here they like to try and ridicule you and make you feel like your question was dumb just because they think they already know it all. My whole reason for asking a question is to get a legitimate answer to something I don't know. I thank you for being a help with a straight forward answer and not trying to be a smart ass with an opinionated statement that provides no real answer to my question!

    A positive attitude is always appreciated. as a old saying, no question is a stupid question. Nobody has all the answers to all the questions.
    any contribution from any member, old and new, is welcome.

    Thanks for your response but you never answered my question. My question was simply intended to gather knowledge from the individuals who are now experienced but at one time were also "newbies" like many of us. I asked the question so I can get some insight in regards to me being able to be a contributor to the forums with limited blackhatting knowledge but it seems as though your intention for this particular thread was only to come across condescendingly.

    You guys are all alot of smart guys and I appreciate the content and advice that you all pass along. I just get frustrated sometimes because I have only good intentions of being here simply to earn some good money - Point Blank

    However there are a few around here who seem to me at least like their shit doesn't stink and while I am in the pursuit to learn a thing or two I can only learn by asking questions when I am ambiguous to the answer. I know many of the guys here probably mean well but I simply think some of the guys around here are pretty harsh. But in the words of my father ... Fuck Em .. because the only stupid question is the one you don't ask!

    God Bless You - That is exactly the type of answer that I was looking for. I've been here for a month or so and I've pretty much felt lost while I was here. This is the best answer that I have received in regards to this topic. I know everyone means well (I think) but I guess the way that I had worded myself in my question was not clear enough for everyone but I have my answer now.

    I appreciate your answer alot!!!
