    We have designated categories for all this stuff (clickbank, domains, google seo, etc).
    Where are the mods?

    Probably because the Lounge is a place for anything really. SEO, Jokes, whatever.

    When I first joined BHW, they were pretty strict about moving those types of threads to the appropriate forums. Guess things have changed.

    Yeah i've been browsing BHW since 2009 but the rules and regulations are more lenient now. Like Newbies with couple of posts selling stuffs through Signatures,More and more leechers who simply download stuffs and don't thank the OP,etc..,

    Well for me If Im not really sure where to put something I put it in the lounge as If I understand correctly everything but sales threads are allowed in the lounge even if it's not the best place to put something and get responses.

    Regards

    The forum has been expanding in users and size rapidly, which results in a harder job for the mods.

    I think they do a pretty good job, so lets not split hairs over things that aren't a big issue :)

    True. If my memory serves me right, i think 4 admins/mods retired last week and Tacops(Tacopalypse) has been elected as Mod yesterday.

    Another great thing is the guy who cheated our members got banned within 2 mins since I posted it. So we members should report any post/threads using Report Post button if it fails to abide BHW rules.

    You guys and gals are our eyes in the threads...

    As SmartMan wrote...when you see something that is against the rules or looks suspicious,
    report it and action from our side will follow.

    The moderators run the forum but with the amount of members we have
    we can't do it without the help of our vigilant members...veteran and new.

    Ditto that! . . . Also, some of you may not know, but we recently had 4 moderators
    retire about a week ago, which leaves a very heavy workload for the few of us who
    are here on a daily basis. However, that is being resolved as we add new Mods.
    In the meantime, please be patient, and as blackhit said, we greatly appreciate
    those of you who are hitting the REPORT button when you see anything that needs
    the attention of a Moderator.

    Keep up the great work people! :)

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    I would like to add that I personally think that the major reason why there are a lot of SEO discussions going on in the lounge is because not all of the questions fit into the specific sub categories. Sometimes although people may have a question about something to do with ClickBank the actual question may not really be suitable for the Clickbank forums hence they post it in the lounge. I know this for a fact because even I have been unsure at times where to post certain threads. I've mentioned this a long time ago, but I will mention it again I think a "General IM Questions" section or something along those lines would help the forums a lot.
