Lol, it's to add or remove hat tips.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Is there a restricted section on DDF?

Of course there is, every forum has it, it is part of the basic features of these forums. The motto in all of them is "Don't ask don't tell".

Anyone who has an elite status and bunch of stars you can assume is in the restricted (secret) section and whatever they write in this thread is suspect.

Don't bother asking to get into the group, I am sure they have the same policy as every other forum: You get invited, either by being super useful, or by being referred by a friend.

In a restricted area you can assume the following goes on:

- Deals and glitches before it gets posted on DDF/DDMS (UPS method?)

- Deals and glitches that would get killed if it went public

- Gossip about folks on DDF

- Sales of miles and points

There is no doubt in my mind that these groups exist, why would it not, if you ran this forum would you not make a restricted section? It is only logical.

If you really want to get invited into secret societies, prove your worth to society. Or just make your own whatsapp group and discuss that same topics in there.

These days there are whatsapp groups for everything:

- Deals/Glitches
- Selling/Buying Miles
- Jewish News
- General Hock

Whatsapp and Telegram groups are where all the real action happens.  8)

Well said above, every forum has a right to have such a group which can be with limited access. The same goes with the flyer talk community too.

I wonder how long it's going to take until forums are obsolete.

There will always be new people entering the world of miles/points.

You will always need a farm system.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Eh, any good deal will be drowned out by Mooses and the like posting nonsense. Even if it isn't that private, good deals can go unnoticed there

In a restricted area you can assume the following goes on:

- Deals and glitches before it gets posted on DDF/DDMS (UPS method?)
So now that the UPS method is leaked and it's out there, and it no more rests between the thick DDFRA (DDF Restricted Area) walls, have you ever grasped the method??

I bet not.

I therefore suggest to you not to obsess over the fact that you're not a DDFRA member, since the majority of the stuff discussed over there are probably UPS-method-level stuff.
