    Recently I've been thinking of some ways the bhw marketplace could be made a better place. Keep in mind these are only suggestions and strictly my opinion only.


    1. Disallow the "do x for a review copy".

    A review copy should be exactly what it is: a free product in exchange for a review. I see many members ask for a like or a thread bump before and after the review. This is super misleading to most members and basically makes likes pointless. I can name multiple members who do this if the mods wish.


    2. Detailed Mod Reviews

    The mods have been doing a lot better job at this, but generally the more detailed the initial review the better. I would like to see exactly what the seller provided. For example, if a seller is selling content, perhaps the mod could post the article that was given to them? This is the best way to see what you will be getting.


    3. Ensure the validity of a certain giveaway/review copy

    This probably pisses me off the most. Sellers that claim to be giving review copies but end up not giving anything. They are basically getting post attention for free. Again, I can name multiple sellers who do this if the mods need to verify. If you claim to be giving something away, you should actually do so or face some punishment.


    4. Fake Reviews and other bullshit


    The mods are doing a pretty good job, but there are many threads that I'm extremely skeptical of with newbies joining a week ago posting an amazing review. Everyone should help out by reporting what they think is fake, and the mods should then verify whether the review is legit or not. If it isn't the seller should be immediately banned from the marketplace in my opinion.


    5. Require Pricing


    Only a couple threads do this, but the "PM for prices" shouldn't be allowed. In my opinion every BST should clearly state the prices. Not doing so is pretty shady and gives the post free bumps.


    6. Encourage Honest Reviews

    This isn't so much the mods problem but the general mindset. If you are a newbie, do not be afraid to leave an honest review, even if the product is a bad one. There are many shitty services on marketplace, and you will do everyone a favor by leaving your honest opinion on them.
