Click Here To Upgrade

(Upgrading Is Only A Yearly Fee)


Why this change has been made:

The forum is getting overrun with "less than acceptable" people who have discovered how easy it is to make money with Warrior Special Offers and that they can get a site indexed within minutes by posting a junk blog on the forum.

I deleted 7 blogs last night that were made by people with zero posts to their name. These are not serious members, these are spammers.

It's been my experience that people who pay for something respect it more and are at least willing to read the rules.

I know this will not stop all the problems but it will drastically cut down on them.

Thank you for understanding..

Allen

    I've been procrastinating on this for months now so looks like it's time to pay up

    Agreed Allen...got a bit daft recently. Appears more and more spammers are telling more spammers to post one liners here!

    I understand why you did this. However, I can't help but feel sorry for the people who would be new and would give quality contributions to get their post count up and then run a quality WSO.

    I know that if they have something of worth to sell, the $37 + the $20 WSO fee would be made back. However, for some people, that extra $37 up front is a huge hurdle. It's a shame when the minority have to ruin it for the majority.

      Please understand that I don't think this is up for debate.

      That being said, I think it's a good thing for EVERYBODY. First, they still have some access to the awesome information here. If they are not able to put enough of that into action, then it's a good lesson.

      Second, they're never going to make their $100s or $1000s or whatever if they can't even come up with $37.

      What I'm getting at is maybe they will treat IM like a business if they have to pay about as much as it costs to subscribe to their favorite magazine (or a month of cable, or a bunch of other examples one could mention).

      All in all, it's an incredibly positive development on ALL sides of the fence.

      All the best,
      Michael

      Jason,

      Anyone who knows me from years back know I've always been the same way. However, things change. If what is going on now is allowed to continue this forum will be another DP in less than 6 months.

      The way I've done it I've made sure that those needing a hand up can still get it. They can still browse the forum freely without paying a dime for anything.

      EDIT: This in reply to Jason V (Weird, no quotes this time)

      I can't only partially agree with this. Yes, $37 may be a hurdle for some. However, this is business. If a Warrior can't invest $37 in their business, they would be well advised to start writing resumes.

      Building a business calls for commitment - commitment of your time and money. If a Warrior does not have $37, I would highly recommend they cancel their cable TV, give up a dinner out, forego a night at the movie theater, say no to ordering in pizza, stop smoking, take the bicycle instead of the car, do whatever it takes to save some money to invest in your business. If you can't make that kind of sacrifice, you are not a true Warrior.

    Pete,

    I think you may be misunderstanding. You can still be a free member. You just can't post a blog, run a WSO, or have a lot of stored PM's.

      Jason, I think you misunderstand. I know exactly what Pete is saying.

      He and I paid $49.95 to join the Warrior forum as LIFETIME
      members years ago.

      We had all of the privileges that are being sold again for
      $37.00.

      I can't put words in Pete's mouth, but I think he's saying.

      We already paid for this once.

    When I have an offer, I'll join. In the mean time I will continue to lurk for the most part. Anything you can do to reduce spam is A-OK with me.

      I don't understand why people question Allen's reason for switching the forum to paid membership to me it is quite obvious the guy knows what he's doing no one is a successful internet marketer for 13 years without knowing their stuff thank you Allen for enabling aspiring marketers to have this resource you truly are a pay it forward type business man and I'm sure it comes back to you ten fold for your efforts.

    Sounds like a great move to me. Everyone will benefit in the long run, and the short run for that matter.

    I'm all for it.

      Is a good idea to get users to subscribe. In this way not everyone will can post all kind of entries.

    What about current WSO's run by non-War Room members?
    I hope those are allowed to run their course.
    I've bought some, and have to continue to pm the sellers-- because they're trying to get them to work on my hosts.

    Wow. Thanks for doing this Allen, I joined up as a war room member a couple days ago and felt it was the best thing I ever did. Now its more than the best thing I ever did! I got in just in time.

    I also like the idea of letting people browse with out paying a dime. There are many goldmines to be found without paying for them to give newbies a leg up

      Allen,

      Thank you!

      I've been on the watch for a specific group to arrive here for a while
      and I believe you just nipped that in the butt.

      Now I can relax and get some rest/work done!

      Enough said.

      Have a Great Night.
      Michael

      PS. If you want to know whom I was worried about and why just PM me.
      I believe you already do know.

    Awesome. Happily I'm in the War Room. I think this is good as we'll have more quality WSOs and such and less quantity. Kudos!

    I'm not against the paid upgrade.

    But, on further reflection, I think this will devalue the War Room.
    Up until now it was populated by members who "chose" to be there. Probably due to someone elses recommendation, as in my case. I joined the War Room before I ever visited the forums, including the WSO.

    Now, all the spammers who want to stick here will also be in the War Room. Even though they might not of considered it otherwise.

      It won't really be a problem. The War Room is moderated so only the type of posts that are ok will make it in. Plus I think once a lot of the new members see how things go in there they will also have some great things to contribute.

    Hey Allen,

    Have you considered using the "thanks" as a way to qualify for WSOs? Maybe require someone to have 10 "thank you's" from 10 different Warriors before they could run a WSO. And each Warrior would need 100 posts in order to give a thanks.

    It's fairly hard to get a thank you and it would mean that the posts made were of high quality and a help to the community.

    If not, I'm still happy with the new changes. Those one line posts were a real pain:

    "Thank you for the good information."

      That's an interesting idea Kurt :-)

      I just wonder how long it would be before someone tried to sell 'thanks' on DP...LOL!

      I think this is an excellent idea. IMO it would increase the quality of WSO's as well as the credibility. It is relatively easy to join the forum and to boost post count quickly but the quality of the posting is what gives a certain amount of credibility. As far as 'selling thanks' I don't think this is feasible.
