    I have notice that bhw has started to have fiverr gigs slapped all over it these days, isn't this defeating the object of the rule of not selling out of bst?

    There is a really good thread of people talking about the best gigs on fiverr which is ok I guess but that's now turned into a "check my gig"

    If you look at hire a freelancer you will fiverr gig replys, sooner or later it will turn into check my dp thread, freelancer job

    Just thought I would express my thoughts :)

    Respect for your opinion.
    There should be a Fiverr subforum, or a thread about that.

    I'm glad you agree, I don't want to appear to be a kill joy but I like the idea that BHW looks after it's own and if everything is diverted to fiverr then how can we look after our own?

    Plus I don't think its fair to the BST people

    what is the problem with it. the most discussion is in the gig you mentioned and if you are not interested you don´t have to read.
    i am interested in this because i order fiverr gigs and if someone come up here in the forum with something i need i order it from a forum member instead of anybody.

    so for me its relevant information and you can see on the replies that i am not the only one who follow this.

    thanks

    I think you're missing the point, as I said there is a rather good thread on here where everyone is talking about fiverr gigs..........Ok thats fair enough

    Correct me if I am wrong but BHW have a rule of not promoting other forums, not promoting business without a BST?

    If we must talk about fiverr then leave that in a little section on its own and ban the people who simply post "check my gig" on every other hire a free lancer thread or want to buy!

    What happens is, someone will come on here spamming and gets loads of gigs but ends up scamming everyone, BHW gets loads of shitlist threads which the mods can't do nothing about.................Wouldn't it be better to nip it on the bud now or make a rule that fiverr gigs can only be promoted in a small section of the BST? Still charge them as well, even if its half price!

    I'm well up for a tight nit community on BHW, its safer that way!

    Wouldn't mind more view on this one, we now have a best of the fiverr thread, the best senuke thread, a bookmarking fiverr thread and even more

    Surely keep in one place or something?


    What's the point of bst because we now have
    Members saying check my gig all over the place

    I think there should be a Fiverr Rating thread

    and anyone who wants their service listed - must provide the service to a mod and 5 reviews.

    then they are allowed to be a part of the Fiverr thread... where they can answer questions and potential customers can ask questions.


    Fiverr is a legitimate site now - so we shouldn't ignore it but it should be policed to stop spam ... so join the fiverr listing thread or get banned.

    Lastly I agree with need to support BST threads

    but at the same time when someone writes something negative about a service - stop deleting posts and banning the customers. Every service has to be able to stand on its own - with good and bad reviews

    over moderating BST threads is not good either.

    Flame me , Agree with me , Or Provide some better solution

    I wouldn't have said bad reviews get deleted from the bst at all?

    Now that we have new ownership I'm hoping that this could be looked at?

    BHW is now a haven for promoting fiverr gigs, all of them started the same way "whats the best"

    Come on guys lets keep BHW clean or have its own section
