    Do not tell everyone to write 25 posts, or it is clear to anyone who looks and sees everyone with 'posts 25' next to their name that you seeded the forum and they will think you dishonest... tell people 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 etc... spread it out so it's not so obvious :)

    I agree with this. When I'm doing a posting job I'll notice posters that have completed 25, 50, 75 posts. It makes it obvious who the paid posters were.

    Very good idea but doesn't seem like it's followed too much.

    Good thoughts though it may also seem odd that new members "drop off" after 20+ posts...

    Well from my experience these services make assignments of 25 vs. letting posters choose how many they can do. Some services have this option. So it is a matter of finding the right service who can cater to this.

    I have either written and or found articles in regards to Paid Posting Services. You may may want to read up on a few Paid Posting Sercive Articles. You might find some of the info helpful.

    I always add a couple of extra posts when I am completing a forum posting job so as not to end on the same post number as other paid posters. I think a lot of forum owners also need to double check for post quality, too. I've done a few paid posting jobs where I wasn't able to respond to the posts of the other paid posters because they were unreadable, and those people still got paid.

    Absolutely. In fact, high quality posts are worth quite a bit more than those spammy, low content, easy to write posts alot of forum populators supply. A high quality, opinionated and controversial post will make people respond and generate traffic, where as a crappy post will never get clicked on or responded to by normal people.

    It does makes sense if you are employing quite a few posters for your forum.

    When I read in forums I do not even check how many posts each poster has done.

    Thats a good idea , to assign a completely random number of posts to each poster.

    you could also just go in and manual change the post count of the members (though this would be more work for you...if you forget to do random assignments for the posters...this could be a fallback option)

    sorry for bumping old thread , but I couldn't prevent myself from replying
    no one will nte unless the forum is related to internet marketing
    because normal random people don't concentrate about this issues
