    DF is the only medicine I need. I've seen lots of forums of late requiring increasingly strict entrance requirements. Fuck that.

    BST is a great site tbh, not in the same league as DF, but still a useful resource.

    Agree det, I can understand why they need a home ISP email address to verify users so peopel don't scam, but from what I've read of that place, and my experience of other forums, nowhere has the same vibe as DF.

    I love this place

    think ive made my mind up about that site already.

    I hate sites that seem to be hostile mate, particularily to new members. At least sites like DF have banter mainly as opposed to some sort of 'pecking order' of respect. I don't get the people who tend to think someone's post count or join date gives them some sort of personal superiority to anyone else regardless of what they post.

    BST is a top site mate, defo worth getting a membership to, i think you'll love the banter on it plus thers a lot of other useful stuff, its as much of a community as this site is too imo

    the mod for the proving grounds is very harsh but it has to be done to keep scammers off the site, so dont worry about it too much its just the way the cookie crumbles.

    but yeah you need 2 referrals from members that have been a member for over a year and post/visit regularly. there are a few members on here and there that i know of so you should get a couple of referrals hopefully

    do they get a lot of scammers on there? never been a member so im not sure what the forum is about, i got an invite off someone i helped the other day and was curious about it. i thought it was a bit harsh to go through all that just for a forum membership.

    i aint gotten into any male/gay bonding website have it?

    lol BST stands for buy sell trade. its a very secure website so people trade on there without hardly any worry as to if they're gonna be scammed or not.

    but thats not all it is, if your not sure what the sites about then im surprised you wanted to join, as the main reason people join it is to trade

    tbh i think you'd fit in just right judging by your comment on your referral thread LOL

    BST can suck my cock - they let people trade illegal shit - perma banned me for having worked or had or used a .gov related ip - can't remember what it was for but was for something very vague and the answers I got off the admin / mods was complete shite

    Not worth it imo CUNTS

    There is a mod or 2 off there are members on here and they don't contribute fuck all - again - CUNTS imo

    actually just been speaking to the mod who polices the applications and he does not seem a bad guy, suppose hes only doing his job. with me not knowing anything much about the bst site it just took me back a bit over the application process and the bluntness of it all.

    Far from boring It's policy on gaining membership IMHO is correct. When and if you gain membership you will understand why the proving grounds are there.

    Good luck Detector

    fuck me, lasted 2 weeks and got a ban today

    a mate of mine asked me to do some gfx for him and list some items which i did (this meant me logging into his account from my pc), and i even told the head mod about it to make sure i was ok (hi m8)
    and over the last few days ive had to log into my mates account again to change prices and answer q's on his behalf as hes away at the minute.

    all this time i sent pm's to the moderator in charge telling them what i was doing, apart from 1 post which i thought they would know about anyway as id told them id logged in that day.

    then today i get a ban for it, even tho in my pm's which i have saved the head mod repeatedly said it was ok.

    wish id never bothered now.
