    when i joined (2011)this forum, everything was new to me and i learn something new everyday,and i very much appreciate that, every other hour their was something new to read,download section was so lively, nowadays i go a whole week and nothing much changes, only the i got scammed threads, and the threads that are a good read usually end up in a battle with oldsalt moaning or some mod banning people.
    why is this? less traffic? lazy mods? i know i dont contribute much but hey im losing interest in this once lively forum.

    I don't see why you would need the forum to be any livelier than it is already? There are always plenty of posts to read...

    Besides, most people don't have the time to be on here all day as they have money to make and projects to work on.

    so did u ever think of becoming a donor to give something back

    so as long as theres stuff to get/take see and read your happy

    if thats so, kinda like what your doing now ?

    mods here work for free, and those who take usually give back, what i see from your post is
    while the forum is lively good posts updated free downloads, its great, when theres less downloads
    and fewer threads the mods are moaning lazy.....

    sorry - ide like to show i care but i dont - and im being polite

    I'm in love with this place. Overpopulated forums are terrible anyway. Too many threads, you reply to a thread, you leave the page, go back to the main section and it's already an irrelevant topic. Forums like this are golden in my opinion.

    I think there's plenty of useful new posts around. If nothing else, just use the damn search button and go read some old shit that'll teach you something that you didn't know. BHW should be considered more of a place that gives IM'ers ideas, and appreciated as one - other than a spoonfeed kitchen.

    Scams happen everywhere.

    They work hard here to make sure its kept at bay as much as they can.

    You can even goto Seoclerks and get scammed by JVIP's here, but those JVIP's would never scam here.

    Its how the world works.

    And if you like this site so much donate. Or at least come to Vegas to the convention, where you can meet some of these people face to face.

    Of course it is, and you're far from the first to mention it. The forum is too big to control.

    That's why you buy Jr VIP so you get away from the junk.

    Damien's not going to tell you how much the traffic has changed by, so don't even bother asking.
    And the mods are not lazy. All of them are volunteers except for 'I Know SEO', as far as I know, so fuck off, give them a break. The only paid mod doesn't moderate, he just approves marketplace threads.

    Most of the people on the forum don't know any different anyways (2011+). Those from 2010 and before really see the quality change.

    Awwwwe guys you've made me curious. I want to be a part of your super secret club. Is there a super secret handshake? Do we get free pizza on Friday's at the conventions?

    I think it's somewhat natural for any forum to "feel" that way to some as it develops, but proxygo pretty much defined what happens over time, which is why there seems to be less quality in the content. I got an infraction the first night I joined due to an error on my part, however Salt & the other Mods put up with a lot of crap, and personally I think they have been fair & helpful from my experience. We all have to give in whatever manner we can. Long live BHW

    Well . . . you could try to find a better forum, but unfortunately (for you), there isn't one.

    Guess you will just have to put up with us "lazy, moaning mods" LOL! :D
