    Ok, I get it...the "lounge" is a place to bullsh#t and talk nonsense...but it seems that 95% of the new posts are in the lounge and have absolutely NOTHING to do with business or making money.

    Isn't that why we are all in IM? The green, the money, the dollar dollar bills!!!! Seriously, is everyone making millions a day that they can just post pure sh#t in the lounge 24/7?

    Where are the quality posts? (in the main forums)

    Looking at the new posts is a joke these days...

    Is anyone else completely baffled by this? Personally, I think it is sad that a lounge section on a site like BHW gets the most action...


    EDIT: Closing this because I do not want to get into a pissing match. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinions here. This is mine. End of story.

    I guess people would rather socialize than make money. I find it ridiculous as well, time could be utilized much more efficiently.

    I see your point but seriously look at other forums, like WickedFire for example. They have their own equivalent of the lounge, it's called; 'Shooting The Shit'. One of the stickies is called; 'NO pics of children please'. Also members of that forum are constantly insulting Mods and even the Admin.

    My point is, yeah the quality of BHW's lounge threads may be going down. But there is still order, its not like WickedFire, where there is no limits!

    Exactly my point. People see stupid shit being posted, and "follow" - followers never make it.

    Someone suggested a "1 lounge thread per week" limit. No better time than this to enforce it.

    I often find myself filtering for days through repetitive questions and nonsensical spam in an attempt to find something useful.

    I can only speak for myself when I say that I always share something I feel is worth sharing. Hardly any of my rep is from being a troll.

    Time to encourage others to do the same I guess.

    Other forums are pure sh#t. You are comparing a Lamborghini with a Kia....

    It is normal human behavior. No offense to anyone but average humans put limits to themselves all the time. Mainly being lazy. I would recommend people to watch the movie called "The Secret". It will all make sense.

    I thought the lounge was a place to not talk about internet marketing.Every forum has a general section and the lounge is just that.

    Thats true, but i dont think the lounge trend can be stopped somehow. IDK maybe when someone is posting there, the system should add a donkey right beside their username. JK :) The problem i think is the quality of the new signups.

    I know this, and a lounge is great...BUT...when the lounge gets all of the action then there is something wrong.

    You're not understanding my point. I am simply giving you an example of how BHW has a long way to go before it reaches the standards of other forums.

    Also I don't think I am making such a comparison. I agree with you about other forums being s***, however both forums are about similar things. A Lamborghini is a totally different car than a Kia, they are designed for different purposes. However these two forums are not designed for different purposes they are both aimed at the same subject.

    But you're 100% right about the quality dropping fast. How would you suggest that BHW stops this?

    Personally, I would love for the lounge threads to be hidden from the new post feed

    Another thread bitching about lounge quality...=\

    the lounge is a place to have fun. If everything serious was supposed to be in the lounge, what's the point of other sections?

    Ahhhhh, I've been waiting for you....

    My point is this: WHY is the lounge section receiving the majority of traffic and posts on a IM forum. Simple as that. I am not taking anything away form it. Not saying it should go away (so relax)

    There are a lot of bullshit threads for sure, but like anything in life, you have to get through the BS to find the good stuff.

    I am sure Super Saiyan Squirrel has inspired you to open the thread :D

    I completely agree with you. The quality of lounge posts are going way down. Some topics don't even make sense and they reach 100+ replies while quality threads in other sections hardly get any views because the Lounge posts are always up on the homepage..Something needs to be done maybe
