When I first joined BHW in 2010 I remember there was a lot of concentrated value shared, either by way of pure knowledge , methods and/or different tools to help IMers in their jurneys and in every 3rd thread or so you could read and learn something new and useful. The feeling that I had at that time when I was logging in to BHW was like a kid who's allowed to sit at the same table with his dad's friends while they are talking adult stuff. I was just reading and reading and seeing people asking a Q and 2,3 others saying "keep reading!" "use the search function! etc" so I was reading and reading and trying to understand what do people mean by "doing SEO" and script, WP, organic and type in traffic etc. There were guys like oxonbeef, ericsson, abstroose, BassTrackerBoat and many others seo20,wannabie,yukinari, GreyWolf ...(these are just a few of them so please don't get offended if you don't see your name here, you know who you are) that were bringing real value to this forum and I hardly see any posts from them lately. I wonder if these guys are now retired IM millionaires and are living on some sunny islands sipping cocktails OR maybe they just think this forum has become too much of a mess for them ... For someone who is trying to learn IM these days is just so damn hard to dig through all the random stuff to find something useful... if at any given time you go on the home page there are at least a handful of threads titles ending in "?" and in almost any popular/sales thread are post like "Sorry but what are these good for ?" Don't get me wrong, everyone was a newbie at some point and everyone has to learn but all these threads "what is blah blah?" "where is XYZ ?" are clogging the forum and dilute the value too much. For newbies who want to learn IM, pretty soon BHW may become like *****, a nice place to be in but hard to find anything useful in it. Rambling stops here.
