Default Rules for participating in the WSO section - Please Read !!!!! Updated May 30, 2012

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Warrior Forum Is Not Associated With ANY Of The Services Like Warrior+, JvZoo and Others. These are services people started up on their own and the fact that they exist does not imply we endorse them in any way. These services are totally separate from the Warrior Forum. If you have any type of issues with these services you must deal with them directly.


Please Follow The Rules Listed Below

---------------------

Anything going against what is posted below will be deleted.

New People Here: The WSO forum is full of great deals and the vast majority of the people are 100% honest. People have also made and continue to make small and large fortunes posting their deals in here. Even though most Warriors are honest and offer real value, it pays to use common sense here just as it does anywhere else on the Internet.

If you have a question about a WSO ask the seller before you buy. The seller's forum history, profile, and what they have posted is available for members to research and evaluate.

After making a purchase please post your review. Since the forum does not review, recommend, or confirm the content of WSOs, and disclaims all responsibility for whether they live up to their promises, your truthful evaluation is important for all members considering a purchase.

If you are an affiliate, or received a review copy of a product, you must note that when posting a review of the product.

Clarification: You may review the product if you've purchased. You may not debate about the sales process. If you feel something is deceptive, use the little red triangle to report it to the moderators. Include details of what you believe is misrepresented, and why. Be specific, and remember that "I don't like this" is not the same thing as "This is unethical."

You may list the OTOs associated with a product as a part of your review, once you've purchased the initial offer. That's part of the customer experience. Do not argue about them, or make statements beyond the list of what is offered.

The seller decides their own sales process. You decide if you wish to buy what's offered.

Vote with your wallet, not with endless arguments.

Please keep your reviews objective and remember there is a full spectrum of experience by our worldwide membership.

The Rules:

1. All WSOs Must Comply With Forum Rules, US Laws, and the Laws of Your Location. Keep in mind the forum cannot possibly review and evaluate WSOs. Legal compliance is strictly your responsibility. Do not ask me or a moderator if what you are offering is legal.

The forum does not tolerate false claims. Treat your membership like gold as violating forum rules can result in a loss of WSO posting privileges.

Your War Room membership gives you an opportunity to submit WSOs, but the forum solely decides what is allowed. From time to time the forum may not allow certain advertisements, products, or services, and this could affect the ability of existing offers to be bumped or even continued.

You may not sell any product here that endorses, enables, or facilitates the sending of unsolicited bulk messages via email, private messaging systems, or other channels meant for one-to-one communication, or the spamming of forums, blogs, chat systems, or social networking sites.

2. All WSO's Must Be Something You Created. A Product Of Your Own. (A package of ebooks someone threw together is not considered a product and will be deleted) This is completely self explanatory and not up for debate. If you yourself did not create the product do not post it here.

3. A Warrior Special Offer Means The Price You Give Must Be Better Than The Price The Public At Large Can Get. (This is not a "buy my product" forum, it is a "Special Offer" forum)

4. Anyone Caught Scamming Members Will Be Deleted From This Forum Entirely. (obviously)

Keep in mind that the word "Banned" under a person's username means only one thing: They are not allowed to post for some period of time. Most bans have nothing to do with a person's products or services, so you shouldn't assume any more than that from the word.

5. If the seller fails to deliver the product or service as advertised, or does not honor a posted refund policy, please report the problem to the moderators. Include enough details to allow them to look into it properly.

To report a problem, use the little red triangle to the lower left of the post you're reporting. Fill in the necessary information and submit the form. Please keep in mind that checking into your report may take some time, so responses will not be immediate.

Note that the moderators do not read every post. If you want to be sure someone knows about an issue, you must use the reporting method above.

The forum is not part of the transaction between a buyer and seller. We have no ability to force a refund or other action by any party. We cannot correct these issues. We are limited to reducing or removing access by parties we believe may be acting improperly or who violate the rules here.

Civility and good sense count. Try to work out any issues with a seller first. Most of them will be responsive to questions and concerns. Stuff happens. Things break. Give them a chance to make it right. If they do not, report the problem.

Also, to sellers, you must give your customers some reliable and common way to contact you that does not depend on the forum. A lot of people order products here who do not have enough posts to send or receive private messages.

The biggest reason for unsatisfied customers is an inability to contact a seller to fix issues when they come up.

6. If Your WSO Does Not Get Approved Right Away Please DO NOT Start Emailing The MOD's Or Posting About It In The Main Forum. Sometimes It Takes Time.

7. We no longer allow wild characters and ascii art in WSO titles. The image at the bottom of this post is an example of what we want to stop. Look at it closely. Your WSO will no longer be approved if it looks like those in that image. Be moderate. If your current WSO goes against this rule edit it now. I'm not going to attempt to go into this rule with a fine tooth comb and create a massive volume for it. Just use common sense and create normal titles, with normal use of quotes and exclamation marks if desired.

8. You may not use video testimonials from anyone who has an offer to sell them on Fiverr.com or any other site.

9. (added 29 June 2011) You may not offer any kind of "bribe" inside your product, or in other ways after the purchase, in exchange for leaving reviews in your WSO thread. For instance, you can't offer a bonus report that people only get if they leave a review. This makes all the reviews in your thread at least slightly suspect.

(added 9 July 2011) The above paragraph isn't as clear as it could have been -- It's OK to publicly offer review copies, for free or at a discount, inside your WSO thread. Reviewers should make sure to say in their reviews that they received review copies. Transparency is the key here.

If you find someone else doing this in a WSO you've purchased, feel free to report it.

10. (Added February 6, 2012) Do not link to off-site reviews from within a WSO thread.

11. Anyone caught selling, trading or otherwise giving out the email addresses of their WSO customers will be banned from the forum. (Added April 8, 2012.)

12. For offers posted after May 26, 2012, you may not promote your affiliate program within a WSO thread. For a general explanation, see the discussion starting with this post. (Posted May 26, 2012)

HINTS:

1. Find a WSO that looks like it went well and use that as a model for yours.

2. Give people as much info as they will need to make a decision. This helps you, the buyer and the MOD's. This means: Do not post "blind ads." You must tell people what the product is, not just what it isn't.

3. People have used this section of the forum to launch $20,000 a month businesses. Believe it or not, it's a fact. Treat it like Gold because that is exactly what it can be for you.

4. Become a contributing member here before trying to post a WSO.

More hints will be added later...

Thank you!

Admin

UPDATED: Anyone caught trying to purposefully harm another persons WSO will be removed from this forum permanently. If you bought the WSO you have a right to comment on it. However, if you have not bought it you have no right to say anything at all about it. You have no basis on which to even give an opinion one way or the other.

If you think someone is trying to harm your WSO on purpose, just use the little red triangle ("Report Post" button) to alert a forum moderator.

NEW UPDATE - APRIL 2ND

We will no longer be allowing WSO's for membership sites that buy master rights here and give them to all their members.

Over the last two weeks it seems 10 new membership sites have sprung up for the express purpose of buying all the WSO's with master rights and giving them to their members. This will no longer be allowed and all such WSO's will be deleted.

Thanks Allen I must admit when I first joined I had no idea how hard you worked to maintain such a great place - I fully respect this now and will not only comply with these rules but realize just how much value you are providing us by enforcing these rules.

Oh wow, just went in there and it looks soooooo much better!

If I didn't get the alert about the new ruling I would have gotten a shock.

Place looks great now, nice job.

Much, much better. I have always put characters in my WSO's, but always felt like I had to just to get noticed. It's like if every store on your street has neon signs, you better have on too! I'm very glad that now we don't have to do that and can just put our actual message in there.

Thanks Allen, great work you're doing here.
