    To the public, before anyone asks.
    With the referral competition going on, it seems ironic that I should bring this back up on the agenda.
    We all can see the amount of threads in numerous sections (particularly the Making Money subforum) being clogged with the most shameful threads, such as paying $5 for 2000 traffic.

    I don't propose closing down forever to all public, but maybe reducing the amount of people coming in, just looking for an ebook and moving on, or selling methods posted by members.

    That should make it a bit clearer.

    But really, maybe its time for another vote.
    If anyone has got any other ideas, post them in.

    to OP, it doesn't matter.

    If you were the site owner and you had a top 1000 alexa website would you close it off?

    Not likely, not very likely

    there is already a closed forum, Jr Vip. and Ex. Vip

    why do you want to limit new ideas coming into the forum?

    I'm not asking for permanent closure to public, it's so that people don't just come to BHW for ebooks, begging, spamming, and those blasted Digital Point users.

    To break down that analogy: as long as your body can sustain blood production, there is not a problem, except major injuries.

    I have an idea, stop making polls/threads like this and leave it up to the owner/mods to decide when a vote is needed.

    And how is paying $5 for 2000 traffic a shameful thread that leads to closing the forum to the public?

    As someone who is new(ish) here, I thank God I found this site! Many of the boring, repetative posters seem to post then bugger off. Not many stay any length of time and if they do at least they may get educated. I think the 2 private areas are enough and we should leave the moderators to jump all over the "how do I make xx by yy" posts and all that sh1t! Just my 0.02 cents

    Oh and if you take a look down the membership lists starting at "a" you will see a lot of registered members don't even get their posts into double figures, suggesting they post crap, don't get the instant money making ideas gifted on a plate and so FCUK off.:D

    Hitler has already set up camp inside, so closing it would make no difference.

    No it should not close, there are idiots with money, and paying would lift a barrier to fresh blood.

    Honestly a small signup fee could be the solution to this, something small say like $5-$10 dollars
    then the people that really want to be here and contribute will get off their asses and do some
    work to make a little cash to get a membership. This would obviously benefit the owners as well.

    threading restriction should be introduced for newbies.
