    I am sorry but i have to say this, but what is it with all the dp threads lately, lets jv and scam dp, lets us screw dp blah blah blah, I thought we were here to learn how to make money not to spend time going to scam other forums, yes I understand that sometimes some people need to make some quick cash, so yes going and selling something on dp is the way to go. But I really feel we need to cut down on all the dp threads that we are getting, and get back to what we are supposed to be here for making some real cash with im.

    Sorry but just need to vent.

    Thanks

    And unfortunetly, DP is about useless for even going over to to make some quick sales. With their new anti bumping system in place it's kind of a lost cause. I posted a thread over there a few days ago with a quality product (method totally works, spent 4 weeks writing the book, nothing rehashed etc) anyway, the product got rave reviews posted about it and not a single sale, PM, interest, nothing.

    Because new posts aren't pushing threads back to the top, threads quickly get buried on the 2nd and 3 page.

    DP is officially useless

    Me I care about it, we are here to share information on making money and when you get threads pop up every 5 mins about how someone has just been banned from dp etc, well it kinda gets annoying.

    I think people have lost the reason of why we are here and what we are supposed to be doing, may as well change the name from BHW to DP Scammers world.

    Totally agree - it used to be easy pickings for quick cash even if you had to hand out free review copies to get some sales........

    Lately it been harder to get any sales from b/s/t - people there dont seem to be willing to spend any money with percentage of users only there to get free reviews at a new all time high.

    Mods there crack down on almost everything even giving infractions for the stupiest anal reasons but still let people post useless can i have a free review posts. ok i had my whinge now.........

    This seriously sucks. I never knew about the BST being sorted by the thread date, I was too busy writing the eBook I was going to sell on DP. FML. (I spent days writing it, goddamit. But hey, I'll definitely be able to put it to some use somewhere....)

    DP is hurting themselves.......those guys come there to dream of making money and now
    no one can sell them the dream.

    NOW would be a great time to start a DP like forum to create a platform to give them
    what they crave.

    Remember the auto forum generator software in the BST section??

    LHaskins, that's true. If you check out some of the owner's posts (Shaun) and the forum's moderators, you can see how they don't really give a damn about the members. (Who, by the way, made the forum into what it is right now.)

    On an unrelated note, it would be great if someone could also launch something similar to the previous version of the SitePoint Marketplace since they decided to switch to Flippa.
