    Keeping it simple, If you can make the things that you read, into the real action, you should really get into the Jr.VIP. It is really worth it, if you can make the things that you read to a Live one.

    And all in all, being a JR.VIP is being close to Exec VIP! And, Blue is cool as well!

    Its not about it being worth it or not (it is though), it is about giving something back to the forum.

    Not really. For that, you should donate to be a Premium member, which makes you Pink!

    Jr. VIP is like giving back for giving us a room in BHW, and BHW is giving back more for that! :)

    And, as an Add, if you cant really work on what you read there, it will still look like any other forum here, which are open to public!

    If you read the stuff in there and apply it, it is worth it for you, if you just read it and forget about it or can't apply it, it isn't worth it, nothing is worth it to people like that in fact.

    It's definitely worth it now that they have the $10 Jr VIP PayPal button working again. Unfortunately, you can only click it once per week, but $40 a month of free money is still $40 of free money!

    It's worth it on a couple of levels.

    1) You are giving back to a site that has given you ideas to make money as well as knowledge.
    2) There are some VERY good ideas in there that you wouldn't otherwise come across.

    I was thinking the same thing. Got all hyped up when I saw it and wanted to know how he got it xD. All it is is that he was a normal member who got Jr VIP through a contribution that was moved to the vip forum.

    I am starting to think that BHW should be closed to new membership at some point in the future. I only say this because of how much stuff I find on other forums that are stolen from BHW.

    You should be able to join sooner, too many posts to make the move.

    Worth every penny if you are not a lazy kind, and actually use the resources provided for useful stuff :), for some it is worth, for some no, depends on the person you are.
    But one way or another, BHW helped a lot, and still worth donating :)

    There's a lot of previous threads discussing this topic. Basically the biggest value is in having a seperate area for threads with a lot less newbie questions. There isn't necessarily a ton of additional information that isn't already available in the open forums. The discussions just assume a higher level of understanding than might always be expected in the open forums. If you already have a really good understanding of what you need to do, then you can sometimes have quicker discussions without needing to include a lot of basic explanations. If your not able to figure out how to make money from the information in the open forums, you're not likely to find anything better in Jr.VIP. Regardless of what membership level anyone is, most information can be found in the general forums. If that weren't the case you wouldn't see nearly as many threads and replies from Jr.VIPs or Exec.VIPs in the open forums.

    Here's an unofficial explanation that I've posted in other similar threads about membership levels.

    BHW Membership Level requirements:

    Newbie = 0-49 posts
    Regular Member = 50-99 posts
    Junior Member = 100+ posts
    Premium Member = Paid Donation (click the Donate link on the top menu bar)
    Jr. VIP = 100+ quality posts and paid subscription (click the Donate link on the top menu bar)
    Jr. Executive VIP = requires a thread was moved to Jr. Exec VIP and admin approval.
    Executive VIP = by invitation only (given only after vote from Exec VIP's)
    Moderator in Training = by admin approval (click the Staff Application link on the top menu bar)
    Moderator = by admin approval
    Super Moderator = by admin approval
    Administrator = by site owner approval
    Super Administrator = by site owner approval​

    Quality posts are any posts made in the main forums excluding the Lounge, Downloads, and Forum Suggestions. Members are also expected to follow the rules and not make pointless posts just to inflate their post counts.

    Premium Member vs. Jr. VIP
    The main difference between Premium Membership is the post & time requirements and access to the Jr.Vip forum. Both will cost you a $97 donation, get a Donor icon under your username, give you a larger PM box, and allow you to post links in your sigfile.
    • Premium membership can be paid without having 100 posts, but there is NO automatic upgrade to Jr.Vip once you reach 100 posts. You would have to donate again to become Jr.VIP.
    • Jr. VIP membership can only be paid for after reaching 100 quality posts and being a member of BHW of 60 days. Jr.Vip recieves every advantage of Premium membership PLUS access to Jr.VIP forum.
    The advantage of becoming a Premium member is if you're selling something it allows you to include links in your sigfile without waiting for 60 days and 100 posts. The thing to remember about that though is the mods don't allow just any links, (at the present time the rules are interpreted to only allow affiliate referal links, links to your approved BST threads, or links to other BHW threads or pages).

    So basically, unless you want to promote an affiliate product or link to a BST thread in your sig without waiting to qualify, you're getting more for your money if you wait till you have 100 posts and been a member for 60 days so you can join the Jr.VIP.

    If you ever decide to become a Premium Member or Junior VIP just go to the "Donate" link on the top menu.

    Here's a few previous threads regarding membership levels:

    No its not worth it... I already gave out service worth few $K for free in Jr Vip, and people recognize you better, plus you are becoming VIP on 467 largest website in the world - Nah, it is not worth it at all. Just walk away. :rolleyes:
