    Part of the reason you don't see exploits/methods being shared is that this forum has become pretty massive and anyone sharing something of value will be fearful of saturation and/or an ending to the exploit. Of course, I am sure there are plenty of people making a LOT of money through IM and blackhat methods but ask yourself; would YOU share this information if you had it? Part of me thinks the answer is no.

    I think the idea is sound, but I would say there should be a general restructuring of paid membership levels on here.

    I don't personally agree with having a paid section of the forum for members that don't contribute to the forum other than selling. I think it devalues the exclusivity of the paid section. However there does also need to be some impetus for people to post there.

    In terms of getting more methods or case studies on the forum overall, then I think was on the simplest solutions is to have a monthly competition. I don't think it would be particularly difficult to find a Market Place seller that would be willing to sponsor a cash prize or some kind of service in return for winning a competition.

    i cant totally disagree with op . i am seeing some good quantity of posts which tend towards spamming instead of rock solid methods .
    My main purpose to join BHW was to see how people can earn money from high traffic web applications which provide services for free like online converters etc .or how a sole developer can earn living online without working for client. Developing and distributing his own applications .But most posts just focus on quantity rather then quality and long term approach .create thousand of instagram accounts . upload thousand of videos to porn tubes .For me as a developer i have not found anything rock solid till yet. Sometimes i think working for client is much better . i have started in INSTAGRAM from reading through this forum .Still waiting for results to judge .Till now it looks all methods for instagram shared on BHW are for college noobs .

    I remember seeing all the bitcoin threads at the beggining of the year. Everybody was right to go and start speculation cause it sure did pop off a few months ago...

    You won't find spoonfed methods like back in the day anymore. I remember finding methods that were totally outlined and started making $XXX/day right off the bat. Problem is once you share something really profitable out in the open, everyone does it and it becomes saturated overnight.

    Every now and then someone will post some good content, but I look for ideas more than anything and apply my own unique twist. Some of the Grey/WH methods from years ago still work since most people here are looking for a quick buck, so maybe look for those instead.

    Just like any other "free" service - they run ads. If you're not paying for the product, you're the product.

    So far I've only had luck developing my own methods. But this forum has a plethora of tools and ideas that I'm certain in time I'll learn how to use. So I wouldn't say it's dead.

    It's a point of view, maybe OP said the forum is dead because at some point (after years of hard work) we reach a level where we have nearly nothing to learn, congrats we are now experts!

    That said I'm pretty sure no one is an expert in every field, we have a limited time by day so it's literally impossible.

    Today I run an agency and know SEO very well but I still reading this forum and sometimes I learn a "tricks", a new idea or something useful I didn't know.

    I understand this frustration to have nothing new to learn but it's not about this forum it's about ourselves.

    The OP isn’t far wrong, clearly the forum isn’t dead.. but it is lacking compared to what it was, you can see that plain as day from simply looking at the lounge thread dates and times, or the market place bumps, I’ve been here long enough to notice these things are down.. you’re kidding yourself out of blind love for the forum (which is counter productive) or sheeple mentality if you say it isn’t.

    One of the problems is and I’m speaking from personal experience, when you share here you’re accused by a lot of trolls (and others) of having ulterior motives or they’ll simply flame your share. They’re the same losers you’ll see posting constantly in the lounge, spending all their time here trolling or having alt accounts to post comments they won’t post themselves, they share nothing.

    Another problem is.. people simply grew up and moved on, their businesses grow and take up more of their time, that’s what happens with success.. the more successful you become the less time or interest you have to hang out on forums talking shit. The funny and I guess ironic thing is a lot of that success comes from what is learned here.

    The market place is a sess pool.. I won’t sugar coat it, again I’m speaking from experience. It has gone down hill big time and I mean this as no disrespect to the mod team here as I know they’re doing their best (speaking from experience again, as I was a mod here too) and have made big improvements to the review process from what it was before. However the market place is over crowded.. dozens of people selling the same products, but buyer levels are down.. it doesn’t take a genius to work out what’s happening there.

    Where does the forum go from here? I’ve no idea.. the people that are annoyed or worried should do something about it, I spent a good two years sharing weekly content here and at the time it had a great knock on effect, others began sharing and we had a lot of upgrades to Jr Exec. If you want to see change then you’re going to have to put in the work to help make it happen, rather than complaining about it.

    @Claudiu If you look closely you will find things are being shared. We are indeed learning. The main problem is you want this forum for gold digging methods only. In reality, you will see many people are making a good living by selling tools to Digg gold. ;)

    Lesson learned is Keep your eyes open.

    Part of the reason the forum isn't as vibrant as you'd want it to be, is the nature of current interaction between members. Some want to be spoonfed. I see people posting methods or a journey thread and some members want to squeeze every last detail from them. That's not how it should be... I should give you A,K,N,Z and you need to join the dots to get from A to Z

    The funny thing is that super affiliates .and the most money and they don't use secret methods.

    The things I wrote in my sticky is a basic method what they are doing the only difference is they are experienced and know the game a bit better.
