    Yes Shawn is making a lot of changes which is good because this forum had nothing but spam especially the BST section.

    As a whole yes, the BST section is like a ghosttown with everyone walking on eggshells but the quality in general has risen.

    I think any seller will tell you that it's harder to make sales now though. I can see that section completely dying, but DP doesn't revolve around BST.

    But it is a lot easier to tell the people who really want jobs. Like in the content creation section, the people can see the scammers and the non-scammers.

    Its actually getting worse and the latest cleanup with the new google ads on the forum posts, it doesnt really make a difference.

    If dp wants to improve, I suggest you guys get some features into the forums, such as mininium word count for each post to prevent spam, and maybe a marketplace posting limit per day.

    Giving out infractions doesn't really due much to spammers, and when actual posters get infractions for making 1 mistake, it basically turns them into the digital point unrest.

    Is this the reason why my number of posts trimmed by couple of hundreds? I haven't login for a month. What happened around here? All my post before March 2008 are all gone. Hmp.

    The B/S/T section could be improved a lot more. Like you can only post an offer every 4-5 days or something similar.

    Er', I'd not like to see it end up 100% like WHT which stifles the shit out of commerce.

    What would help is disallow anyone with less than 100 posts or something of that nature from starting threads of any kind in BST. BAN terms like FREE, UNLIMITED, etc...

    I loved the way DP was couple of years back.
    Anyways. I think that recent changes have improved this place. :)

    As far as speed goes i believe the DP is improving a lot. I really like the new search feature that you can search forum posts and you get the results from Google.

    Yes this is because the boss is back. Personally I am happy to see that. It keeps the forums free of moderator abuse and stuff gets done.

    It's my view that a strong community needs strong and present leadership.

    I been off and on DP for 4 years now. Interesting how time flies.
