    Many journeys are people making starting off making little to no money who then go on a "journey" of making little to no money.

    Even more journeys are people making little to no money who then go on to make nobody knows how much because they abandon them.

    These are useless because it's distracting the thread starter from actually making money and there isn't anything for everyone else to learn, because the thread starter hasn't actually achieved anything.

    However, there are a few great journeys with people earning real money that everyone could learn from but often, they get buried under all the rubbish and are difficult to find so everybody loses out.

    To reverse this, I suggest giving people in the journey section the ability to edit their thread title. Why? So they can put in brackets at the end of the thread title how much they are currently earning on their journey.

    This would massively help highlight the successful journeys so that everyone can learn from them and the people who are already on their way can get some good help.

    I've noticed this browsing the forum but also in my own journey thread that I started. When I started it and there wasn't anything there for anybody to learn from, I was getting replies, questions, "good luck"s etc but after a while when I actually got up to $1000/month on it and to a point where people could actually learn some valuable stuff from it, nobody was looking at it anymore and just on to the new ones.

    Also, many threads are "a 15 year old's journey" etc and if they stick at it, they're going to turn 16 sooner or later so the thread title is incorrect.

    The best thing about journey threads is not letting any edits happen. it allows people to see what has happened from the start and then compare that OP to the last post etc. You can see the whole journey with updates instead of just an edited OP that says "I made $xxxx".

    Make sense?

    I agree but I'm not saying let people edit the actual post, just the title to add a little bit in brackets at the end.
