    Operation Coaching Crackdown

    Users will now be banned on site if they have a signature that sells coaching without our permission. ​


    If anyone you see holds a signature like this please hit the report thread button where you seen it and state selling coaching in signature.​


    We are doing this zero tolerance from now as too many people are getting scammed, not getting there money's worth and selling coaching that is utter junk. Most people I have seen also selling coaching have only been here short amounts of time, have been begging for guides a few weeks before, or have become overnight gurus because weeks before they started selling coaching they mostly had threads stating they need to make $100 a week, being an example.​

    So from now REPORT these people. They will be banned on-site.

    Everyone has 24hrs to take procedures in removing your coaching signatures. Or you will be removed.
    This is a zero tolerance scheme, and you have forced us to do so.​


    If you are wanting to sell coaching you need to speak to a member of staff first to get verified. And need a buy/sell/thread to go with your signature.​

    Is it worthwhile for those who do have permission to note it in their sig, thus cutting down on needless reports and possible thread flaming that they are selling coaching.

    Alternatively if we could have a sticky along the lines of the DNS list showing people that are permitted

    Oho man! I was thinking of being an ewhore coach just today. I only started here last month and i had become an overnight expert, alsas I cant charge $500 for my expertise. Shame!

    Anyway great to see this Harro. Being a newbie I had almost been stuck with this coaching approach. Thanks again.

    Agreed, anyone that wants to sell a service should have a BST thread approved first!

    Maybe we need a sub-forum in the BST for this??

    Bravo haRRO!!
    there are too many "gurus" lurking around and if BHW don't want to be DP they must be verified and offer real service.
    One more reason, this is getting to be the best forum on the net, black or white.

    Free coaching will be needing reviewed jst the same as paid coaching, as users can earn via referrals or buying products same thing. It needs reviewed.

    99% of the time we read everything, and 99% of the time if we dont respond means no.

    Thats just how it is.

    Good move, I think this is a good idea, I think someone mentioned it earlier but i will mention it again, we maybe should have a forum for coaching, which someone should mod and check people out and if they think they are up to standard then they are allowed to offer there coaching in the forum, kinda like the downloads forum. That what I think anyway, but still a good move.

    I wonder whether this question was missed or ignored. Anyway I have another, what if the sig link leads to a site directly offering coaching, would this be a violation of the new rules?

    But in that theory any sig link to a site selling ANYTHING is a violation of BST policy

    Well this is early days, so just wait it out and do as i said first of all and have your stuff reviewed by a member of staff then you can get the go-ahead.

    Freebie coaching dont cost money to get reviewed but needs to still get reviewed. Paid coaching however will be treated the same as a product.

    If this isnt too much of a problem why moan about it.?

    If your priority is helping people on this forum instead of helping yourself. Why not go through this ?
    We need to know your plans exactly on giving free coaching and how your benefitting. So we know whether to accept it or not.

    End of story its our rules, and we arent being assholes, we are just cutting the crap out.
    And instead of blaming us blame the retards who ruined it for everyone.

    We are tired of getting mailed or IM'd every 10minutes with someone who has got scammed out of $100-$5000

    So thats how it is, our rules are non-debatable.
