the warrior forum has been doing a lot of changes to improve the marketplace.
Our goal is to make a marketplace more transparent and with a better regulation and understanding of the rules.
This is a challenging process.
Past Heads of Warrior Forum had failed mainly for 2 reasons:
the huge amount of users that want the Warrior Forum marketplace to be "the wild wild west"
and the huge amount of users that want regulations
Regulations are challenging:
When you come to the Warrior Forum and you post that you are making $2000 per day with 7 minutes of work weekly and you sell the WSO for $7 with a brand new account... mmmm it's difficult to really trust the quality of the WSO.
So what is the solution?
Do we remove WSO that offer income promises.... do we shut down any WSO that makes money online.... do we shut down anything we can't guarantee?
This is challenging... and if you are "the admin" of this Forum it's not an easy task.
Users are passionate and we all want the best experience and in many cases, we fail to make 100% happy....
so we have decided to split the marketplace into 2 areas
The official marketplace
and the Underground.
The underground is "the old wild west of WSO" or a marketplace where we believe the offers promoted or listen don't fit our quality standards and we are not 100% sure of the authenticity of the offers.
Brand new users
Insane claims of success
Low quality in the copy
Some of you have requested 100% freedom to sell and promote and to let you chose what you want to buy. -- in other words: leave us alone to chose what to buy or not ---0
On the other hand....
We also want to protect our users in a marketplace that is regulated..... but at the same time, we understand that some users may want to have the option to have access to a marketplace that is not moderated by us.
"How I made 1 billion dollars while watching Games of Thrones and how you can make the same amount in 17 seconds or less"
Well if you are looking for that type of deal... the underground is for you
Important to understand:
The underground doesn't accept any illegal, warez, or product that doesn't fit our standard term and conditions..... but it gives you the option to post items we will not allow based on our suspicious of authenticity in the main marketplace.
Mainly is the Wild Wild west and it will receive less attention, love and traffic than the market place for obvious reasons.
Also, the Warrior Forum WILL NOT promote the Underground at any stage and the priority of approval and support for the Underground members will be less that the marketplace.
Overall this is not an easy decision.
Shutting down classified ads to setup as the Underground comes from our need to streamline our processes. In many cases for "the user" ... running the Warrior Forum it's easy... but in reality is not and we believe in this way we are empowering the users to make their own decision.
I will be expanding on this topic later on to clarify doubts that you may have in the next days or so.... and although this will not happen in 2017, it will be something that will take effect in January 2018.
I'm well aware that this will not be ideal for everyone, but I think is a good compromise for our team and some of the core members.
