    There is one thing which is not clear to me. What if a normal user directly pms the thread owner instead of replying in the thread? Will that be considered against the rules? Should we report those conversations?

    Finally, only JR VIP members and those who have an active marketplace thread can apply to HAF posts. Thanks, BHW team.

    Definitely a good move. Jr VIP is very reasonably priced. I bet most people could make the cost back in just a couple days, then the rest is profit. If you're not willing to invest in your business, then you really don't have any place trying to do business on here.
