    I started sharing many premium items in the last few days, but the moderation team decided to merge all the threads into one thread.

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/get-a-ridiculous-amount-of-free-stuff.1129866/
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/get-lots-of-free-stuff.1209656/

    WHY HAS THIS DECISION BEEN MADE?

    As far as I know, I am allowed to share my premium items in the download section?

    Someone merged my threads in this thread, which doesn't even belong to me and is related to ELEMENTS downloads, no WORDPRESS downloads.

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/get-any-envato-elements-for-free.1192394/page-7#post-12977623

    WTF?

    Because of this, I will stop contributing to BHW with the premium downloads. Cheers.

    Thanks MODS for screwing this up.

    Yup, and most mods @ BHW encourage users to share and take less, but this doesn't stimulate sharing.

    I also noticed that my threads are merged individually to reduce post counts. OK, I am really done with this shit.

    @Diamond Damien - whatever your response is to this thread, you should understand that's a fucking time consuming job to control this. I am doing this in my valuable spare time and I am really NOT happy with this. I would like to request you to restore all my individual downloads (if technically possible), or I would like to have ALL my threads + free shares removed from BHW.

    This is sad to hear... I can imagine most of them being shared for SEO purposes and also more impressions on your signature, which is okay with the rules as far as i know, no violations. I can imagine your efforts for also ranking these, etc. i feel with you OP. Hope it gets sorted out soon.

    If this has anything to do with that, then you might as well:

    1) Stop all these BHW users renting out their signatures for $15-20 a month in return for spamming the forum just to pump their banners; and

    2) Stop the large number of BHW users with BSTs that do nothing but spam other sections of the forum just to promote their banners for their BSTs.

    Here's to hoping this gets sorted, I've used Festingers Vault and that shit's amazing ;) Best of luck, hope to see more freebies from you in the future.

    I don't know this guy either but it's not up to me to judge if his shares are safe. VT reports don't show anything virus related.

    I will definitely provide more freebies if my posts are not merged together.

    @Festinger makes wonderful contribution to this forum. Hundreds of users get benefited from his premium wp templates, addon & shopify themes. It will be sad to see if @Festinger stopped sharing his premium stuff here.

    I heard about you since 2017 and I am using many of your plugins.

    Please don't stop, man!

    May be this happened because you created many threads and the system restricted your account.

    Me and a lot of members need you here.

    Nah, this isn't an automated process. A staff member merged manually all my free downloads.

    I think the issue is being resolved, I just noticed your freebie threads popping up

    Thank you Festinger for all the free stuff!

    What a completely pointless mod action!

    Combining them all into 1 thread makes the themes impossible to find.

    BTW, my free shares are not valuable to SEO as they are posted on the member downloads sub-forum, which is not indexable for Google.
