    There are many posts that aren't up to scratch here, and if you look at the perpetrators, they are usually newbies. I, although I am still classed as one, have been a BHW guest for a long time. Newbies often get a lot of stick for posting shitty threads, but there is no real guide on what or not to post. So here it comes:
    The Newbie Guide


    1. No one will spoon feed you here. You want information? Check the different sub forums, see if there are any relevant posts. Read through some journey threads, they have detailed descriptions of what to do. Still can't find it? Use the search box, on the left of every page.
    2. Don't ask stupid questions. For example, 'How can I earn $5000/a day instantly', will not gather you a flock of friends.
    3. Read the Rules. Haven't yet? Do. Imagine it as a handbook, on how to not get banned. Just to give you a small insight, it's the green link at the top called 'Forum Rules'.
    4. Don't sell outside of the marketplace. Chances are that you're not a Jnr. VIP if you break this rule, so just don't try to sell anything. The only place you can offer you're services is the 'Want to Buy' section, and you may only offer you're services replying to a thread.
    5. Don't make more than one thread about the same topic, chances are you will have both threads deleted, and you will lose out in the long run. It also really annoys the Senior Members.
    6. Don't ask for thanks, or rep. You will most likely recieve the opposi

    Notes:

    • I'm not a moderator.
    • I have been wanting to write this thread for a very long time.
    • I was inspired to do it by the recent poll on quality, here on BHW.
    • I am only trying to help the community.

    Right, so far you've posted asking for work on one thread, and made a spammy post on this one. Good going!

    My advice(FWIW): Instead of posting a new thread, search -- better yet seek the answer... I truly believe any question you (or I) have in the beginning, has probably been answered... A good way to think of it is like keyword research.. If the first search doesn't produce what you were looking for, twist it up... Asking for help is a world of difference from being lazy..

    If your post doesn't portray that there was any thought involved in it's creation, it will most likely get ignored or ridiculed.. Asking questions that insinuate that you would like to circumvent the process of learning, will not get the response you would like.. Someone may leave a 'giblet' of information in passing; but the real nuggets come from responses to educated posts or posts that show that there was some effort involved in the search up to that point..

    That's my two cents.. Not sure how that converts to other currencies...
