    (edit: promo is pvg, not sin)
    From .bomb promo's. ~4cpm (two day stay or a little less for longer stay) after the double. I'm an amateur compared to you all, but this seems like a really good deal. Am I missing something?

    And that's my sign to go to bed :)

    From a couple quick searches pvg is around ~6cpm so not as good, but still a good deal?

    Side q: I know I can edit my post, but it doesn't look like I can edit a thread title. Correct?

    Welcome to MP.

    Yes, it's correct that we cannot edit thread titles. To fix this, click on the blue report button at the bottom of your post and ask that it be corrected. It's helpful to state explicitly what the thread title should be. Then someone in admin at HOM will change it for you. No problem.

    Hmmm, from what you posted above, looks like it's RDM not EQM triple?
