    Your "garbage" is someone else's treasure. Many people can take sites you call garbage and turn them into money makers. Just because you have had bad experiences doesn't make all of them bad. I know many members have done well in there. I know I have.

    And, if you don't like them, don't go into that forum. Seriously. They're all in one place so those who want them know where to look can find them and those who don't want them can easily avoid them. So if you don't like "garbage" turnkey sites simply avoid that forum.

    Premium Sites are defined as those with a starting bid of $10,000 or more.

    We've noticed a lot of growth in this specific segment, and as the volume of listings on SitePoint grows, it makes a lot of sense to seperate them out in their own seperate section so that they don't drop off the 1st page of listings so quickly.

    I think it is a great idea to seperate sites over $10,000 from others. Saves people time when they are looking for sites in certain price ranges.

    No offense but many of the "$10,000+" Premium Sites are the pie in the sky listings you see on other no-name website sale sites. Usually have some story about hundreds of thousands of dollars going into development, HUGE potential in some market, yet no traffic, or more work needs to be done, etc..

    I hope the good ones still get listed in the regular section as well.

    I like the idea of seperate list because i am not looking for sites at that price. Makes it faster to find low cost sites that are fixer upper.
