Back With A Warning

Hello everyone,

I would like to apologize about my long hiatus. I had personal issues to deal with that is currently still ongoing, but I would like to take the time to warn all my readers of an upcoming possible danger to those who post in forums. To all who remember one of my previous posts warning of a forum with an incompetent Administrator, the owner of the forum whatsgood.us, that forum has now been shut down and a member I am well acquainted with on another forum has confirmed to have not been paid for her posts on the forum, which claims to be PTP (Paid To Post.)

This Admin is now not only has shown publicly that he is incapable to manage a forum community, but that he also is what the community of online workers know as a Scammer. His new forum: http://www.411.moe/ is not reliable for income. To those who post on forums for enjoyment, he is not a very good listener. So if you have any trouble, he will likely not help you.

To those who want proof of his negligence, I still have the screenshot from his last forum: whatsgood 1 300x225 - Back With A Warning

This was in response to complaints about a feature where members could steal points from each other. The forum owner instead of taking the feature away, which was not smart to add in the first place, simply condescended the community. By stating that they should read the reception and learn to use the bank. Never in all my years on the internet have I seen a forum admin that was so publicly rude to it’s members, all well having obvious grammar mistakes, especially in the post he used to condescend.

With that said, I would advice you to avoid his new forum and all forums or otherwise web-based content and communities until he learns to be more responsible.

Please leave down in the comments what you want me to review/blog about next and I will consider it. Goodbye for now!

Reviewing whatsgood.us

For those who don’t know, whatsgood is a Paid to Post forum. I myself am not a member, but I know many who are. However I will not be joining after hearing what they’d had to say, and hearing what the admin had to say. The main problem being, you earn points for posting which you can cashout into paypal money and I believe other gift cards as well. But, members have the ability to steal hard earned points from other members, and this is legal by site rules to do! When members didn’t like this feature, they complained, as I believe they should have. But the Admin refuses to listen to reason and gave a rather childish response blaming the members for not reading up on how to use the bank to protect their money.

Here’s a screenshot of the post:whatsgood 300x225 - Reviewing whatsgood.us

 

Sounds to me like this is not a good earning site, with a not very intelligent admin. I visited the forum in question and found in the very post that he wrote telling members that they should read the reception, a number of grammatical errors. Now, I don’t claim to be the best at spelling or grammar in any language, not even my own. But if you run a forum that speaks a certain language, you should be able to write in that language with some level of professionalism and proficiency. I say professionalism because I saw triple exclamation marks as if yelling at the members.

According to the admin in another post, the stealing feature had been removed due to complaints, but some members still complain about stolen points. It is unclear to me if the feature had really been removed or if they are still talking about before the supposed “removal.” Before the supposed removal of the stealing feature he gifted only a fraction of the points stolen back to the victimized users. I have received no confirmation on the forum in question or any other about the stealing feature’s removal. But either way I’m personally not joining, and I recommend that you don’t either. The admin’s attitude alone makes that earning site not worth the money. I give no support to this site and even had adblocker on to take the screenshots, I don’t want to help pay thieves who don’t deserve the money they cashout.

Overall Rating: I give this site 2 $WG out of 5.

Until next time, comment what I should review next! Bye now 🙂

Update: It has been confirmed that the stealing feature has been removed and I have updated my rating accordingly.

The First Review

Hi folks, if you are reading this you are about to read the first official review for this blog you are currently viewing. I had a bit of thinking to do to decide what to review, especially since I got no suggestions. But I naturally expected such, since this IS a fresh and new blog after all. But that aside, the first thing I decided to review a forum near and dear to my heart, which I have been a member of for more than a year now. Since I know where most of my traffic is probably from, it should be dear to you too. But if you haven’t guessed it, my first review will be of none other Then ForumCoin.

On the rare chance that someone is reading this who does not know of ForumCoin, I’ll give a basic run down. ForumCoin is a forum, hence the name. It is a PTP forum, otherwise known as Paid To Post. It has what’s known as a “Forum Currency” which you can earn from posting or receive in exchange for a service. You can theoretically earn an unlimited amount of ForumCoin or FC this way. At the time writing this, 1 FC = $0.01 USD paid with Paypal or Amazon among other methods. You can earn FC from 10 posts a day, barring some special reason otherwise. Also you earn different amounts based on what forum you post in, sometimes even based on whether or not you start a thread or reply to one!

With ForumCoin you will NOT “get rich quick” by any means. Anyone with that mindset will be sorely disappointed. ForumCoin is a community, not just a money making site. There you can learn new things, make new friends, advertise your own website or YouTube channel (where and how the site allows only, please no spam!) I personally used the FC I earned to purchase the domain of my own forum, www.beneuniverse.com. It’s still not very popular, but I haven’t given up on it and I won’t.

I’m even using FC to fund the hosting for this blog that you are currently reading! I personally believe I came a long way in my knowledge of websites since joining Forum Coin one year ago. I had the help of not only many members of the forum, but also two of greatest forum admins I’ve met on the internet today. They’re usernames are Fergal and CyberFreak (also known as Cyber for short.) They are the kindest and most understanding people, but they don’t back down from nonsense and the breaking of rules.

If I ever had a question I always know I can go to the admins, sometimes even if it has little or nothing to do with anything at all. That is the kind of air that a forum should have, we are not just their underlings, we are their friends! The forum is open internationally, the only catch is that the forum is English only. So if you can’t read this blog, you likely won’t be able to join the forum. Now, the owners are very lenient with people whom are not fluent in English, you do not have to be perfect. But you must be able to be understood. ForumCoin is one of the few earning sites where being from a certain country doesn’t give you any sort of advantage or disadvantage. Everyone earns at the same rate and earnings depend on what you do, how often you do it, and sometimes even how it’s done. You have the capability to earn as much as everyone else, maybe less, maybe more, it depends entirely on you.

I would reccomend this forum for everyone who can deal with the above to join this forum and contribute to what I believe has the potential to be a new world currency and a permanent internet powerhouse. Though at this time I doubt anybody who is not already a member, maybe one day someone not registered will see this. In that case I implore you to sign up. Every second unregistered, is a second wasted.

I’ll see you in my next post and in the meantime, keep earning money.

Final Overall Rating: 5 FC out of 5 FC
