    Guidelines for Posting and Receiving Approval
    For Your BuySellServices Thread:​


    1. You must have 100 or more quality posts.
    2. You must have donor status.
    3. You must have been a forum member for 90 days or more.
    4. You must be free from infractions and bans.
    5. Your product/service must comply with all BHW rules, including but not limited to, no forums, no coaching, no illegal services. Check the rules before deciding on a thread.
    6. Your thread should include clear contact and refund policies.
    7. Your product and service must be of quality and priced reasonably. BHW staff will be the sole arbitors of this.
    8. You must have 10 or higher reputation.

    How To Submit A BuySellServices Thread​

    If the above applies please complete the next set of steps:

    1. Create your thread, it will go into a moderation queue. You should keep a copy of the thread text and title. Make sure your thread is a final edit, write it in Word first.
    2. Send a PM to a one or more of the BHW staff, this should:
    3. Include a brief summary of your proposed product/service and the pricing at the top of the PM.
    4. Include the title used for your BST thread.
    5. Include the full text of your proposed BST thread.
    6. Include requirements, if any, for the moderator to review your service.
    7. NOT be sent to 'Moderators In Training'.
    8. It is required that a Moderator review your service, and it is expected that you provide the top level package or service if this is applicable. If you are unable to provide this, you are unable to service the large market that BHW provides.
    9. Wait patiently to hear back from the staff regarding your services thread, DO NOT send follow up PMs requesting the status of your thread.
    10. If your thread is approved pay a $20 listing fee via PayPal to payments@blackhatworld.com.

    Why Was My BuySellServices Thread Denied?​


    Having a services thread is a privilege, not a right, staff are under no obligation to approve any thread.

    If you do not receive a response from the staff after two weeks, assume that your thread has been denied. We do not discuss the reasons for denied threads, so don't PM asking, this will not get your thread approved.


    Useful Advice:

    Many of the moderators are available on IRC (irc.blackhatworld.com #blackhatworld), should you need to discuss your services thread or its status, it is appropriate to ask here. Be courteous though, as pestering the staff will result in your application being denied.

    I was so close to being able to post my service, now another 50 posts and $97 before I can. I understand the need for this though.

    Donor status means you need to have paid for a Jr. VIP subscription or made a Donation subscription membership, both of which cost $97 per year.

    Then after you become a Jr.VIP or a Donor you get your service approved and pay $20 for the service thread listing.

    Thanks for the new rules.

    The Donor status thing is upsetting me a bit, but I know it is for the betterment of the forum.

    I wish moderators remove that condition but no offense as you all guys rock and what you all are doing is for the benefit of my second family BHW.

    What about service threads which were submitted for approval prior to these rule changes? Are they subject to these new rules?

    Oh! so to start my first thread i need to pay 97$+20$=117$:confused: .
    I know i get ROI very quickly because my service is good.Unfortunately the 97$ thing is difficult for provider like me.
    If that rule has been changed we are happy.
    That is you can place rule like after opening a service thread for 20$ here,we can pay donar status fee later like one month later or so,At that time we do have some money in our hand to afford it.

    Hmm hope to get good answer from mod.And some support from our fellow members too:D

    @linksmaster - thats the rule. If you consider that the price of being a donor and holding a services thread is too high, then BHW is not the place for you to be selling. There is no ability for you to upgrade later, that would place an unreasonable burden of work on the staff.
