    Its very difficult to read Journey threads. A lot of GL/BL replies pops up and its became pain in the ass to findout useful questions/answers/tips/updates posts in journey threads. Same goes with market place also, alot of users posts good luck with ur sales...etc. Some people (not everyonoe) posting them to drop their sig in thread. Its take lot of time to find out reviews/problems of users in BST threads. Why not place a good luck / best of luck button same as thanks button in market place and journey threads.? This will help in keeping most crap posts away.

    we usually say to use the thanks button instead of posting shot comments like that. We can look into maybe making it easier to read though, thanks for your suggestion.

    Its really not what you exactly saying. Spammer only do that but Jr.VIP cant be spammer. Bcoz to become a Jr.VIP, have to pass the forum rules & spend many times to get the trust level & money. There is a another thing that they paid $97+$97 for getting this status & signature space. So they have the right to marketing, thats not means that they can spam. BHW MOD are really strict to protect the spam so there is no way.

    ^ who said jr. Vip members can't be spammers? Many jr.vips doing that. Many people're promoting their bst on his competitor bst thread through signature. Only few people are disabling their sig in marketplace. You're older member than me, but its funny that you didn't know about it. And as far as I know it costs only $97 for jr.vip and sig is a free feature for paid members.

    Its a good suggestion, but each comment bumps the thread thus gets the thread a wider following, usually all there is to say on a journey is 'good luck, will subscribe to this thread' If no one commented at all and used a good luck button, the thread would disappear down the forums pretty quick and end up unoticed

    We could just have an "Auto-Ban" feature for anyone who uses the word "luck", and similar sounding words in their posts. Like "duck".

    Let me tell you jrvip, even exec vip or even mod or even admin {can be|are} scammer. paying $97 is not going to make you legit. there are many members here with less then 50 posts and who pay more then $97 in transaction fees.

    I do agree some members like to drop their sig into threads for no reason.. but this will work against them in the sense that other members see this and look down on them, its better to have a good reputation round here than have your sig spammed everywhere.

    It's not just for signature spam, lots of members do this to increase post count. Not just the scammers who are looking to reach 15/100 posts but many regular members who want to increase their post count as it's a very easy way!

    I agree, good luck, best wishes, following etc posts are not useful and the thanks button should be the obvious choice but even if the buttons were added I doubt very much that they would be used. It doesn't increase post count!

    It's an aged old fact that "thanks for share" style post are taboo for
    good reason and when it happens in great quantity then it can lead
    to consequences.

    Yes I have advocated that signatures (besides the OPs) in the marketplace
    Should be disabled, however at the end of the day being able to have a
    signature is an excellent feature of being a donor and normally works out well.

    If you see someone artificially inflating their post count in great
    Numbers then usually you can just report that post. :)
