    Is it a scam Big-Boards.com ?

    They stopped display correctly my site some years ago, they show 1,8 mils posts instead of 5 mils, a couple of weeks ago I decide to use the "fast payed forum review" since they do not care to answer to my emails, "we are too busy" they write on the site, but if you pay we will review your site in 5 business day
    Nothing happened.

    I opened a protest in Payapal, nobody answer until today.

    I submitted my site more than 5 years ago, it still isn't listed, yet if I try to resubmit the site says it's "pending".

    It has no credibility whatsoever.

    And Digital Spy has been "board of the week" for years.

    Big-boards.com is abandoned.

      That's fine for "no credibility", but they keep asking money and Paypal has an open contract with them, that's not nice at all.

        Just been on that site, it doesnt look very well made.

        If you look at the bottom

        "Copyright 2003 - 2005" you know how long its been since they updated it.

        Seems like a scam to me.

          actually that site was closed 3 years ago and is maintained artificially by not closing it.

          asking for money?... you've been spoofed, because the official administrators never asked a penny for the service. they never had paid reviews, it's an advertising from a client. the logic behind the site was to provide free-minded ranking of sites, it would be against the goal of the site to provide paid reviews.
          oh no, i'm not going with Xenforo... come on, i'm better than that... i stick with Wordpress... rofl

            Yeah Big-Boards has been died years ago BUT I'm not sure how one can investigate who's the "official" administrator of a site...one thing is for sure the Paypal payment form there now:

            http://www.big-boards.com/submit/

            and it was there 2 years ago:

              I kind of knew all these things, may be I was a little bit naif to try, but one thing I can't understand, why the H. Paypal is holding that account alive?

                    There is already one,

                    I cant remember if its Admin Zone or Admin Addict (Think admin addict but unsure), but there is a forum that reviews your board just by submitting the URL in a post. pretty good service, but i dont know if they review "ALL" boards or just vB - been a long time since i saw it.

                      Admin Zone has a board directory, but I don't think it's dedicated to Big Boards.

                      AFAIK, the only thing TAZ has that is Big Board only is it's Big Board Admin usergroup.

                        I meant like there are loads of board directories out there, bigger than big-boards its self, cant name specifics but i have used them in the past to promote websites i made. not a very effective solution really.

                          Big boards has not been keeping their list updated. You can visit some sites listed as using certain forum software, which have changed to using vBulletin from SMF for example. But they still have it listed as using SMF. Also, some sites they list have died and gone altogether from the web.

                            I see potential in the site and a business model, if the owner ever reads this after ignoring my email, feel free to contact me, I am interested in buying over the property/ip, domain and content. And keep the project going under a different network.

                              I think alot of the info on that site has be manually entered and updated. Its makes it quite a chore to do.
