    So what forum do I bombard with my shameless promo spam now? Or do I just spam all the forums?

    Hot deals is on temporary lock-down:
    http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=97950

    There is a For Sale forum, but it's limited to folks with upgraded memberships (contributors).

    PM Joe if you have something you'd like to promote.
    Higher ground for the apocalypse!

    No. We want people with red stars to be able to sell their stuff. And we know how to contact them should something go wrong.

    You mean the opposite. People without red stars to be unable to sell their stuff...? Hence creating another 'benefit' of membership?

    I've seen sites that have gone fully paid memberships only in this manner, please tell me this isn't going to be happening to BF.

    BFN will never be paid only. Selling items directly to other members on the forums will now be a benefit for upgraded memberships, or however you want to twist that around.

    well i think thats fair. I upgraded without that incentive. But i mean If you lurk often around here, its worth the 25 i think.
    Heck, you can learn as much or more than you will by reading barnetts for a fraction of the fee

    Joe, I noticed that the announcement in the For Sale section says that only paid members will be allowed to post. Does that mean that free members won't be able to respond to a sale item? I realize we could just PM the seller, but there are some uptight members here who have them turned off for whatever reason. (I should mention that I have no problem with only paid members being allowed to sell.)

    I miss the coupon code threads. They were a great service.

    I second that. The hot deals forum filled a really good niche: links to good deals from third parties. I hope the hot deals forum gets brought back!! Obviously the mods can enforce the rule that no one tries to sell their own stuff in there.

    I too miss the "hot deals" section. This is a forum: the goal is unlimited sharing of information. Along with the good information comes some amount of useless stuff. I'll filter through trolls, inflated egos and spam all the same because with it comes insight and coupon codes.

    Bring back "hot deals!"

    I miss them too, I check back many times a day to see if it has been reactivated. Now it is totally gone.

    What did you miss? The coupons? There were very few real "hot deals" being posted...
