    In the last couple of weeks, I've been repeatedly seeing newbies most active in the download thread.

    I've noticed that most of the requests are from newbies.

    I've also noticed duplicate requests and [Get] posts, as if no one knows how to do a search first.

    I know there's a post about BHW not being a Warez site, but honestly I'm getting sick of all the requests for shit.

    Anybody think the download page should be limited to members with a certain number of posts?

    No. I think to start a thread in there you should need a certain amount of posts but definitely not to post in or see a thread.

    i agree alot is gettin to me too.. i actually had a think how would you stop noobs posting shit, answering questions wrong.. repeating info.. fillin threads to up post count.. trying to gather thanks etc...

    and i could think of anyway to stop them!!!!

    BHW should go private!

    too many man getting involved now... too many man!

    yeppers, the newbie trend is annoying as hell. i have to refrain myself EVERYTIME I see a pointless thread that's asking for answers that aren't that hard to find.

    you know though, no offense to BHW...the search function on here sucks hard core compared to google. so if anybody wants a good hint to get more accurate results for keywords you want searched on just this forum. type this into google:

    site:blackhatworld.com (and then your keywords after that)

    so back to topic...maybe a suspension then ban everytime someone posts a useless thread asking a question like: what is DMR?

    This is a public forum. Expect this trend to continue. Those newbies will be expert some day. I don't mean to disrespect but you have two options, either help out or stfu! You people ranting about this kind of shit is neither useful to the community!

    Either make money yourself, help the newbies make money too or stfu with that negative energy!!

    Here's a trend that actually bothers me. Guys come along, and have 18 posts and a rep of 17. I've been here for over a year and a half bozo, and my rep remains 12.

    I've posted plenty of helpful threads. However, I'm not using my other accounts to thank myself 84 times in 17 threads.

    Give me a break.

    Where the ****'d(expletive deleted) you get the rep mouthpiece?

    You have been reported for creating fake accounts, thanking yourself incessantly, and falsely donating rep to yourself. Have a great day!

    Aww that post made me sad, and laugh because I have been here for way less time than that?!? This thread isn't about reps or thanks its about noobs asking normal questions and wanting things that are here just think its easier to make a thread...... I did that once when I was a super noob.... I did, i asked for something that was there and I got hit with someones hammer!!!!!!!
    So just a noob thing, sure I am still a noob and will always be one, but now I know how to use that search tool to its fullest. Sometimes when you think about searching for something its like you lost a contact lense in a big pile of dirt.........

    @davers, just for that post, you definitely deserve a rep and a thanks. Thanks for the 'report', my mom would be very happy to receive my report card here. I think I'm getting A+ so far.

    Please review all my posts and see the people who are thanking me and giving me rep before assuming! I'm very disappointed that a Jr. VIP would make that assumption before gathering all the facts.

    But I'll give you rep and thanks if that's what you care about here. Have a nice day to you too sir!

    I think limiting the download section to only users with a certain amount of posts would make those same "noobs" post even MORE just in different categories.

    Lots of rep != you are Gods gift to BHW
    Lots of thanks != you are Gods gift to BHW
    Earning lots of $$ != you are Gods gift to BHW
    Bitching at newbies != you are Gods gift to BHW
    Bitching at the older members != you are Gods gift to BHW

    Seeing a pattern here yet?

    Whether in real life or online, people are going to piss at least 10% of the membership / surrounding people off.

    Get over it - if you don't like a thread, don't read it.
    If you don't like a thread, press the report button if it makes you feel warm and fuzzy

    No one is making anyone stay here and read everything that is posted - everyone has their opinion and everyone has the chance to stay or go.

    I could start the 'I'm sick of seeing a newbie trashing thread' every time one appears, and to start with I did but that wastes 2 minutes of my life that I will never get back.

    Get on with earning your money, if you want to share here share away, if you want to help others thats cools as bollocks, if you come here just to bitch and moan please bury your head in the sand and blow it out your ass :)

    Want to lose the leeching people (not just newbies) then don't fill their requests and don't reply in their threads - it just encourages them.

    Mmmm, hang on, I just went against my advice and read a thread about newbie bashing and replied when I shouldn't of and wasted at least 3 minutes of my life.

    Ah shit

    :)

    Four possible categories for posts to fall into:

    1. The post is actually something useful to a few people...or many people. It might be a though provoking question, an answer, maybe even an answer to a basic question that is buried elsewhere on the forum. It might be a method, maybe a post that opens up a healthy debate about something. Many posts can fall into this "useful" category. Remember, just because it's not "useful" to you, does not mean that it's not useful to someone else.
    2. The post is from a noob*** about something so basic that it shocks anyone that has been on the forums for more than a few days. These posts ask questions about things like "How can I make $100 in 3 Days". ***Lately I have seen several of these "basic question" type of posts from Jr. VIP's even***
    3. The post is bitching about posts falling into category #2.
    4. The post is wasted space, empty air, contributes nothing and serves no purpose other than to increase the posters "post count" ("Thanks...great post")​

    If a post does not fall into category # 1....by default, it falls into one of the others...2, 3, or 4. That would possibly include this post as well. ;)

    This is probably the 20th thread I have seen about someone crying over noobs posting basic questions.

    Gosh, use the search button next time OP.
