    Hey B-Hatters!

    What's up with all of these new BHW members?. Is this in relation to the email we received last night? Just wondering.

    Curiously - "Wiz"

    Yeah its related to that email. I think there has been a big boost of advertising of the forum.

    This is definately good for Diamond Dave as more members mean a greater value of the website, however I dont think it is good for members like us.

    I think this forum should be more secret and more closed rather than open to everyone. Yes this is why we have Jr Vip but even that section is not very lively at all.

    What email are you referring to?

    I know that one of our craigslists threads got featured on boingboing, reddit, and digg. That's where the majority of the traffic was coming from, the thread itself now has 47k hits lol.

    No e-mail that I'm aware of. Just that we made it onto the first page of Digg yesterday.

    Stop Digging. Keep all this good stuff a secret! lol

    The email was an update that the login program was now fixed and then it stated that it was due to the increase in traffic from Digg etc.

    Got two of thise emails myself.

    Haven't had a chance to flame the fuckers who were throwing dirt at us but I will.:)

    It does make me a little nervous to think of an influx of spys and sabotours here At BHW. I think we should all keep our eyes open.

    I found it off Digg and felt like and idiot for not crashing the party earlier. I'm being a good newb and reading all the old posts and trying to learn. I also know how to RTFM.

    I found the site a few days ago before the article. I was researching cookie stuffing and it came up on google. I'm surprised by the SEO you guys have done. I would have expected the opposite, Disallow: /.

    That's the way to do it!

    i'm not sure BHW was ever meant to be very private. what's the point of all the social bookmarking tools? it's sort of ironic that there are a set of social bookmarking tools for every thread and at the same time people are doing stuff like hxxp to obfuscate and keep stuff secret....

    anyway i agree with you. it's tragedy of the commons at work.

    I just found it a few months ago. I must say, that this forums is an invaluable resource. I have already made money off of the sugesstions on this forum. Some ways black hat, some ways not. But at least this forum gets you thinking of ways to make money online, instead of sitting on your ass, like I was going before. Thanks BHW!!!

    I think an influx of new members is a good thing in some respects. We may get some really good programmers and new tools from these guys, just got to keep them honest :D This is the place to learn and use the info to make the big bux.

    Once i found this site and started reading I felt like I wasted alot of time reading the ynot.com forums. I've got one site getting 10k hits a month with no updates in many months another site I have gets 300 hits a day, and I haven't done anything to it since the night I got drunk and jacked a mobile poker sites template as the inspiration, and once i landed here, i felt like I've been missing out on alot of profit or potential profit which as a business I'd consider potential profit not made a loss.


    I can see why you'd want to hide something like this and rake in the ca$h but what the hell are all of you doing with the money you make anyway? Buying land? Pimped out macbook pros? WOW gold? Hookers?

    And on an unrelated side note I have a brother who's a mega nerd programmer and owes me 60 hours of programing. If that can help you help a newb into some loot lemme know.

    Imma go take a nap for 7-8 hours now.

    Hi there 'napman',

    welcome to bhw. Your quote above, who'd have thought that a mega nerd programmer was something to be proud of a few years back.

    Now with some marketing experience and his abilities you can make a killing.

    I say go for it yourself and use his talents to make a killing

    all the best

    hi, i'm new here too. i just found this forum and thought it looked like a great place to be..
    i found it through google so my guess is that the traffic flow is rising and the site's just moving on up.
    that doesn't seem like much of a bad thing.

    and btw, i do like this forum so far.
    :)
