    This thread should closed in Market Places Here !!

    Note : I'm not pointing against any mod or the OP here or any other Members !!

    So the fact is :
    I was also having BST here in the marketplace last year or so about post on adult pages. I paid for that thread for 1 year only & after expiration of my thread was still live and I was getting people adding me on skype for that thread . I think this should be stopped . IF seller don't pays the BHW for that thread again that thread should be at least get closed by the mods and left alone like this !!
    Even If I would have wanted to scam I could have done that of around about $1K+

    Guy got scammed : (a bit of his mistake also because he didn't saw previous reviews & did investigation before buying & 10% to mods also because they don't look at these threads more often )

    Same case has happened Here :
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ium-custom-wordpress-themes-best-price-2.html

    I don't know whether seller paid for another year subscription or not but his post was live till that . Even seller last post on that thread was long ago 04-04-2014, 11:35 AM year ago.
    last comment was from some newbie who wanted to increase his post count !! Means the seller was not much active on er thread for anything ., as she was not getting much from that !!

    I don't want to point only to this seller even I've seen many thread in marketplace where threads are still live not closed even the seller lost's his Jr Vip Membership and even don't subscribe for the package of thread !!
    This will usually lead to many scams here on BHW !!

    I think Mods got what I wanted to say and point out

    way back last year i went through every market place thread with expires vip
    and pass around 30 threads to the mods, what i was told was as followed

    vip is only required to start a sales thread bst, it can still remain after vip has
    expired, but the seller looses sig and the ability to advertize around the forum,
    but they are looking into it, that was a year ago, i recently made a thread about
    this about 2 weeks ago asking if there was any change, there still looking into it.
    thats how it stands.

    i always thought it seemed buinsess like, if u pay 97$ to start a bst, if u intend to
    keep it running it should be a rule that re-newing vip should at least be manditory
    to keep it year in year, this way , seller makes $ bhw makes $

    Every single thread and post you make here on BHW is an asset for the forum, so deleting a post or a thread is not of an big interest for the forum owners as long as it does not harm anyone. That's at least what is behind the philosophy of people who run a forum I read ;)

    Agreed, BUT I think instead of deleting the expired thread ... the thread should just be closed with some sort of renewel notice.

    I agree with this. Maybe on top of the sales page or something write with big letters that it's closed so no one can actually miss it and open up a report against the seller.

    i actually make a point of contacting wiz when a proxy thread is abandoned for a few months
    to get them shut down iff/until seller returns, stops bumps and sales with no refunds
    iff the seller has run .

    I've even seen people who haven't purchased the Jr Vip again still running their own thread . Let me give you an example !!

    Above is the link and I don't think that guy bought his Jr Vip again...and yes he is promoting his product that's wierd ~`

    agreed, but as bhw is a business after all yearly sub fee should be in some way tied
    to those still running bst's with expired vips, that bhw makes money while the seller does

    I'm confused by the rules here, I noticed on of my old BST's here was closed stating "CLOSED UNTIL JR VIP RENEWAL" whereas my other main BST wasn't closed. I have since renewed my JrVIP, but have asked a Mod to clarify this for me as I don't understand why I had one thread closed, and the other one left alone. I agree that I can't find any rule around requiring Jr VIP to be renewed to maintain a BST thread, which only adds to my confusion.

    Edit - Used Google to find the following threads which also have been closed for the same reason (CLOSED UNTIL JR VIP RENEWAL);
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ts-less-obl-unlimited-kw-diversification.html
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ail-extractor-1000s-fresh-emails-minutes.html

    Would love to understand why 3 threads have been closed for the same reason, and lots of others have been left alone.

    the rules for bst has been clarified

    abandoned sales threads will get locked.

    my guess is if the market place mods u can keep a bst with a expired vip yet on your
    sales thread it says locked until vip renewed, contact mr apricot as hes the bst mod

    also im probably the one who got your thread closed, any sales thread i see abandoned
    not posted in by the owner after along time i pass to a mod to request a lock
    it saves bumps from noobies on a thread the owner hasnt answered in a while.
    in the case of your thread u last posted on it early 2013 - now in early 2015 your mentioning it.

    in last 2 years probably had 10-15 threads locked down in the proxy section
    where owners havnt posted in there threads for 1/2/3 years + . ide call that
    expired or abandoned, keeps the old threads down and th active ones up.
    nothing personal in it

    most proxy thread locked by wiz passed up by me, ill hold my hand up
    was probably me i think it was earlier this year. and sat un-used but
    bumped alot for 2yrs.

    most users who abandon a sales thread dont give it another thought,
    but for active daily sellers, u will always find the noobies bump threads that
    if they bothered to read the seller hasnt been active on said thread for
    1/2/3 years, so they keep getting bumped with no replys.
    so i pass them to wiz, if deems the thread abandoned he will either lock it
    or leave it, i see it as keeping the active sales threads up and the abandoned
    ones down
