This thread is for replying to the NEWBIE README thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=177133.0).

Keep the useless spam posts away, I'll be deleting them.

Why is Bitinstant a sticky?

Why is Bitinstant a sticky?

I was thinking about removing it, but I see a lot of newbies coming here to post about it still... though now that I think about it I'm going to unsticky it.

Or not.. ?

Stickying a bitinstant support thread can be easily seen as an endorsement of BitInstant. With all the delays and issues they have being having.. It's unfair to other bitcoin services too, and is somewhat useless to people outside of the united states (since they can only trade vouchers).

I'm sure that a forum thread is not the most efficient way of handling support, but why wouldn't bitinstant want the free advertising? And every time someone has an issue, it actually bumps the thread.

Is the whitelist thread still active at all? I mean does anyone read those requests and possibly whitelist their authors?

I'm not sure about the other mods, but I don't go through the whitelist request too much.  Most people in there just make a post or two then request whitelisting.

Yep, read through that posting already...I am guessing that I need to do the four hours/five post before I can do anything regarding Devtome.  I did create an account over there already, but can't post anything yet

If you have something new to post about it, write up the post and PM me with a link and I'll whitelist you/move the post if it looks good.  Otherwise go for the 5 posts/4 hours till you can post outside, or you could PM people if you have something specific to say to them.

Well if you read what I wrote right above your post, you could have PMed me and asked to be whitelisted to post in an auction.  Or you could just PM the person running it and ask them to put in a bid for you (probably the better option).

I just couldn't figure out why I could'nt post anything or do anything else besides reading...
And just like avantgarden I've been browsing this forum for a few months now and never felt the need to register.
So, here I am now, registered and this was my first post!

You can only post in the Newbie and Local sub-forums till you have 5 posts and at least 4 hours on the forum.

Is that "4 hours" counted from the time I registered, the time I first posted, or the "Total time logged in:" counter I see in the webpage header?

I've contributed to many fora over the years, across many different domains, and continue to dislike metrics that emphasize quantity rather than quality.  I understand the moderators' need to insert a disincentive to flamers and spam, but I wish they'd find a way to grant access based on the quality and originality of a newbie's first contributions rather than on a number or time taken to create them.

The more so that participation here was made a prerequisite for joining in the first tranche of distribution of Ripple.

+1

I read hundreds of pages on this forum, I learned hundreds of things, and I do not have many interesting things to post, since I am a newbie ...
So I can not request information on a buying group that would interest me (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=177994.0).
This seems strange to me.

Yes, whether or not another mod goes through them as well, EVERY request is also processed by me. When I'm online, requests are usually processed within 10 minutes.

Honestly, I would like to see it re-stickied, since requests are way down.

Where or what do I have to do to change my Avatar icon to something else other than the preset Actors, Bitcoins, Artists? Don't get me wrong, i love Bitcoins and Bruce Willis but I'd like to personalize if I could :P I couldn't find any upload button in user settings either.

Hi there,

I have been actively reading this forum for a couple of months now.
Today I have registered here and actually wanted to make a new project announcement in Marketplace > Service Announcements.

But due to the forum rules I still have to read here and browse until the 4h time limit has reached.
Is there any way you could enable me for "Service Announcements"?

Best regards

Since I just got out of the newbie status after joining today, I can explain how.  It's actually automated, you just have to be willing to be logged in for the four hours.  Here's a hint: you don't have to be active on the bitcoin forums that entire time, as long as you're logged in to the forum AND using your computer for something like surfing the internet, you'll get out of the newbie state.

Just a few points:

- It would be nice if you put some info about newbie sub-forum under "HELP", next to "HOME", under the username on the forum main page. I've lost 20-30 mins while figuring out why I can't post. Finally found it googling.

- I have 6 posts already and many, many, hours online - and still can't post. Do I have to login/logout or something? Can you be more specific in the README?

Thanks.

The first point is addressed when you register for the forums, which no one seems to read...

Looks like your good now, it can take a few minutes after you hit the 4 hour mark for the script to run and bump you up.

Disclaimer: i hope nobody mistakes my rant for "begging" or "useless spam", because it's meant to be neither.

I just wanted to say that I was quite surprised when I wanted to register here and saw these "newbie restrictions". You know, sometimes one has to think beyond immediate and most obvious effects of his actions. There are such things as side-effects, and even side-effects of those side-effects, and they not necessarily manifest immediately, and may stay unnoticeable for some time, or even forever, especially if there is no one to notice them and to determine their reason. That's why most obvious and seemingly effective actions are often the least beneficial ones. I totally respect everyone's right to make decisions, and I don't hope to influence anything or anybody, but I still feel obliged to express my opinion about why those "newbie restrictions" cause much more harm than benefit.

First, let's talk about benefits.
As a reason for the restrictions we have "a mass of trolling". Oh yes, the Trolling. People love this word so much but seldom understand what it really means. Trolling is not insulting, swearing or otherwise behaving like an ass-hole. Trolling is a style of discussion that provokes thought in the smart ones and emotions in the stupid ones. If you read books you might notice that good books often troll you, but that's exactly the reason to read them. I don't think it's a good sign when crowds of people get trolled and humiliated by their governments every single day and ignore it, yet the same people get so upset when some random guy on the internet that has absolutely no power over them ONLY writes a short piece of text that turns out to be difficult to understand and/or to agree with. Come on guys, nobody is even shouting at you, it's just freaking TEXT! Have you never read books? Oh yeah, I forget, in 2013 reading is not so fashionable anymore. Still, why so much distress over other opinions? I can't help but have an impression that many people not only ignore books but also ignore even verbal communication! Come out of your basement and try actually talk to people, and you will find out that many of them have opinions different from yours and might even say things that cause you "emotional response". Yes, the feeling they call "butthurt". Maybe it would be better just to accept the simple fact that some people may be wrong and it's normal. Even YOU may be wrong in some cases. I would even dare say that virtually EVERYONE is wrong in at least some of his opinions. Me too, of course. But in order to evolve mentally and spiritually you just have to LISTEN to other opinions because sometimes they are less wrong than yours, even if it doesn't look like it. I've known many people who were said to be trolls and most of them were much smarter than average. Actually, I began to like trolls, because they make me think, because they introduce doubt, because they always make the place less boring and more dynamic. And I am convinced that a healthy dose of trolling is always beneficial to any community. You might disagree with me, but then don't complain if a troll-free place becomes sterile, stale, boring and degraded. Don't fight trolls, they make the stupid smarter and the smart more comfortable, they are a moving force of a community, they make it evolve. The best collective ideas and content often come from the most troll-tolerant communities.

Second, about harmful side-effects.
Do you know what a human being feels when he is treated as a sub-human? Humiliation. Bitcoin is very attractive to anarchists and they are a significant part of the community. And the anarchists are the most susceptible to humiliation. The gutless state-loving conformist will happily comply with any restrictions, even with the most stupid ones. The free human will protest against any bureaucracy. Did you even think that not all "newbies" are new to Bitcoin? You know, not all people learn about Bitcoin from this forum, some learn about it from other sources. Then they come here, already expert in Bitcoin, and now they have to make 5 posts in Newbie section before they are promoted to fully-enabled people. Okay, so what to post here? I don't have anything to ask, or anything to tell. I have no immediate desire to help other newbies. Besides, it sucks to be treated like a criminal when you are not. That's why I'll never visit Israel: I don't have anything prohibited in my bag, I just don't want those people to search my underwear. What they are doing amounts to "insult" to me. Because I feel insulted when I'm treated like a terrorist (or a troll) before I even try do something suspicious. Not that I am even going to try.

That's pretty much all I wanted to say. I MIGHT try and gain those 5 posts, but I really doubt it, with such an attitude I am given.

Thanks for a warm welcome.

Sorry to hear that, but the pros outweigh the cons on the newbie restrictions.

It negatively affects crowdsourcing. You have people all over the internet linking to a specific forum. Any of a thousand thousand people might stumble on a particular thread in this forum. A person with crucial insight or knowledge on the issue at hand might look for the reply button, in eager anticipation of his stunning ability to dazzle people in this particular area of expertise.

Bewildered by the lack of reply-button he might think that signing up will grant posting privileges. Once this does not pan out he will eventually either leave or end up finding the newbie section and all these procedures for getting in. Upon seeing all of this hokey stuff, the person will then make a second decision, to put up with it and either keep posting (four hours five posts and all that) or stand at the mercy of an admin being willing to post his comment (which, in contemplating spending 30 minutes writing a post, might be too much of a risk).

No, more likely - and especially if this is a busy person with other, more important things to do (unlike me, etc.), the person will simply leave the site and never bother with it - until the cycle repeats the next time his knowledge and insight is occasioned by a link to this forum.

They might even use the background color for the font color and put in some hidden text (seen on the forum I moderate on so many times) linking to some of their darn websites.

Anyway, 1 hour and 23 minutes to go for me till I can post something useful and/or buy something from one of the members. When buying, I like to use a moderator/admin from this forum to do the transaction but what would the cost (%) be?

Cost % for doing escrow?  I know John K does it for whatever people tip, usually 1-2% (i think?).

For 1-2% you can't go wrong there. Let me contact John K for that, sorry for hijacking this topic. ;) Thank you.

Very well written :)

Really not being a negative thinking person myself, but unfortunately - while reading the Do not trust people! (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=33835.0) article I got hit by mentioned examples and points again and again doh ...most reminded me of my own experience with so called friends or even worse some trustworthy family mebers...

Sad the it was in-fact only yesterday, when I was trying to explain my GF that there should be nothing like an ultimate trust or faith in someone at all. It always, directly and only depends on the "motivator" value for any person out there. My past taught me that under various specific circumstances EVERY single person will become able to "Sell you off"...

I found it interesting that dacoinminster advised not to trust the exchanges or wallet services (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=33835.0). The guide appears to have been written in 2011- is it safe to say that things have progressed to the point where one could trust, to a reasonable degree, the major exchanges such as Mt. Gox, and pooled mining in general?

I just felt that such a degree of distrust seems behind the times...

No. In fact, I would argue that things have progressed such that you should trust them less, because government regulation is now getting in the mix. You now need to worry that your funds could be seized by a government at any given moment, independent of the trust you have for the exchange, etc.

Good points, I hadn't looked at it that way. If I understand it properly, we have progressed from the intrinsic lack of trust present in a developing system to the larger systemic risk that results from recognition and potential governmental interference, meaning that the guide is correct, albeit for somewhat different reasons.

Well if you read what I wrote right above your post, you could have PMed me and asked to be whitelisted to post in an auction.  Or you could just PM the person running it and ask them to put in a bid for you (probably the better option).

It negatively affects crowdsourcing. You have people all over the internet linking to a specific forum. Any of a thousand thousand people might stumble on a particular thread in this forum. A person with crucial insight or knowledge on the issue at hand might look for the reply button, in eager anticipation of his stunning ability to dazzle people in this particular area of expertise.

Bewildered by the lack of reply-button he might think that signing up will grant posting privileges. Once this does not pan out he will eventually either leave or end up finding the newbie section and all these procedures for getting in. Upon seeing all of this hokey stuff, the person will then make a second decision, to put up with it and either keep posting (four hours five posts and all that) or stand at the mercy of an admin being willing to post his comment (which, in contemplating spending 30 minutes writing a post, might be too much of a risk).

No, more likely - and especially if this is a busy person with other, more important things to do (unlike me, etc.), the person will simply leave the site and never bother with it - until the cycle repeats the next time his knowledge and insight is occasioned by a link to this forum.

We might miss some good people this way, but I believe it cuts out more useless people than deters good posters.

That makes two of us. It is to bad their isn't an IRC element to this authentication as well to help a newbie get in the club faster. I've been hanging out in various btc mining realted chats for a few months only recently did I start posting here.

Still not that bad of a deal to lessen the workload of mods/admin and raise the overall quality of the forum. So far from what I can tell it is a success.

hrm. idea for promoting long time bitcoin lurkers. demonstrate either a bitcoin transaction for a coin you control from x months ago (thus proving long term interest in BTC) or demonstrate you can send a satoshi to an address and give the transaction ID, some technical minutia about the transaction.

or we could just tip the mod a buck to be let out, but then its just a tax  :(

I'm here to participate in a group buy, even though I've been around for a while, but while I'm here, I understand people's frustration if they cant be out within a few days of reading/writing posts... Weeks is certainly more than average for a spam filter.

I like the idea of demonstrating that you have been a longtime lurker in some technical way as well. I have enough chops to build and tune a miner,  (2x Sapphire 7970) soon to be 3x once the funds are there, but I can't get in on a group buy till I serve time in the dungeon.

How much longer to get "unnewbied"? I believe I have followed the rules, and should be ok now. Perhaps there is a backlog since bitcoin is super popular now?

Since I just got out of the newbie status after joining today, I can explain how.  It's actually automated, you just have to be willing to be logged in for the four hours.  Here's a hint: you don't have to be active on the bitcoin forums that entire time, as long as you're logged in to the forum AND using your computer for something like surfing the internet, you'll get out of the newbie state.

So ... no requirement to post messages in the newbie board first?  I thought I read that posting was required before you migated to Jr. Member

Ahh, what to say?  I'm new here, and to the whole bitcoin process as a whole.  Why did I register here? Because I wanted to purchase some coin. So I register and try to PM someone and then find out that I have to post (and only in the Newbie section) and be logged in at least 4 hours before I can do that. I hope I understand that rule correctly and that this counts.
It seems that there is a greater possibility that newbies can be taken advantage of and while I guess that part of the newbie rule is so that we educate ourselves before we start wasting space in forums and PMing members I would think that any potential scammer would look for victims in this section.
For me, I usually will spend some time lurking to figure stuff out before very slowly wading in.  What I do hope is that this community doesn't carry an almost elitist or snobby hipster type mentality. I fear the, "If you're too stupid to understand this then don't waste my time" responses.
I'll try not too be lazy, Oh yes and I certainly will try my best to use the "search" function.

Several sentences.... I'm a long time lurker.  I downloaded one of the earliest versions of cgminer and managed to write a block on a cpu quite a while ago.  Since then I haven't had time to devote to mining, but I've been paying attention.  I bought at $12 last year from bitinstant; everything I could muster.  I'm glad I did.  Now I am in the position to buy a few rigs from canaryinthemine, who I've read enough on this forum to believe he is legit.  I only recently realized that he is moving some lightweight mining boards that I can make good use of.  And I have the BTC.  Now to see if I can get approved to post on the Group Buy #11 message thread.  Mad at myself for not reading the forums in the last week.  In four hours it will be 11:43.  The clock is ticking....  Is that a good enough excuse to get approved faster???
Thanks to the community as a whole, I've already learned a lot here and expect to learn much more.  Awaiting your question.  And PMing you now, thanks.

***Not figuring out how to PM on this platform, but I guess I have four hours to figure that out!  =)

Fairly recent convert to cryptocurrency.  Time to stop lurking and get active...kicking myself for not paying attention when I first heard the term bitcoin.  Currently mining the three primary currencies on a couple 7950s and a block eruptor (yes I know the ROI is terrible). But with a couple pcs that are normally on 24/7 anyway I figure a couple additional watts for some coin.  I figured i could stay home from the bar for a night and save enough to justify the Eruptor.  Looking more to mine and hold than to turn a quick profit anyway.

Any tips or recommendations for the the group buys on the big ASIC rigs?  It Seems to me that some of those have great potential for decent Ghs/$ even with some conservative forecasts for difficulty adjustments.

Hi,

Apparently I need to post to the newbie thread to move over to the other threads.  I have a couple of questions and I would imagine these are substantial.  One is probably appropriate to this thread and the other probably belongs elsewhere. 

First, whenever I do an initial keyword search and I do a search again it will tell me that I must wait 90 seconds to search again.  This seems like an unusually high threshold.  I could understand if I was doing a search high query every few seconds or so but hitting this limit after the second search seems odd.  Is this the usual limit or is this because I'm a newbie? 

The reason I'm here is because I'm having difficulties using the stratum-mining-proxy written by slush.  The stratum-mining-proxy was working fine yesterday but it will not connect as of last night.  I would like to go to the appropriate forum but the search limit is too frustrating to find the appropriate forum.

It would also be fun to be a part of this forum as I have just started mining with bitcoins and would like to read and talk about the industry.

Thanks in advance.

Nice post Archi348, as a newbie, I shall quote you for my first post, as it is very similar to what I would write!

I have been reading the forums here for a while, enjoyed learning as I went along, and kept coming back here to check out more threads!  I could have joined earlier and got involved more... better late than never though!

Seems I am not the only one interested in the group buys, having looked at the mining dashboard at TGB, I am aware that USB BE's will most likely have a very hard time reaching ROI, and that the GB's for upcoming devices from KNCMiner and Cointerra could offer some protection against the huge jumps in difficulty over the next year.

I shall keep posting and be active until I can join a GB or start my own (I am aware of the trust issues, and will follow the guidelines of these forums with caution once I am member.) I have looked at several GB's to get an idea for how they are being done, and noticed that there sometimes is a significant surplus raised or that the math doesnt seem to add up (I guess this is partly due to BTC fluctuation, and manufacturer price drops.)

I hope to find a trustable, open, GB to join, or create one and show the full working for the Share pricing and relevant Hashing power it represents.

Big ideas for a newbie I know, but I see alot of closed GB's already, which is probably good news and I will try to emulate their success and strong points and improve if possible.

If I do create a group buy, or help with the admin for one, I aim to use that experience in further bitcoin projects, and may look to have a start-up as there are additional ideas I have in respect to the bitcoin market.

Thanks, PM me if this post interesting, and also if I have made some glaring mistake  ;D

Hello everyone.  I just realized the newbie rules as I tried to post a reply to a thread.  I'm just now learning about bitcoins.  The only thing I hate about becoming a newbie on a different forum is that people try to take advantage of you even though you have been an active trusted member on other forums.   I haven't did any business with anyone here, yet.  I am still watching to see who is trustworthy and how the tust system works.  I still have a long way to go before I really have an understanding about bitcoins.

Welcome.

Trust system is easy:
You give ratings to people. Everyone can see it.
Red rating = negative.


The more trusted you are, the more weight has your ratings.
So basically, only trusted people can influence the trust rating of someone.


When you click on the trust, click on "untrusted feedbacks" in order to see ALL feedbacks that he received.
And be careful about multiple accounts, fake trust ratings.

Always use escrow.

Hi, I don't know what to write here either.  I've been mining Bitcoin for several months.  I started out using 4 * 7970 GPUs then "invested" - if you can call it that - in some USB Block erupters.  Currently running 34 erupters using cgminer 3.3.1 as that seems to be stable. 

I recently tried upgrading to 3.6.4 but get too many zombies too quickly, and loads of timeout errors.  I see by reading the mining thread that Ken is aware of the problem, but I can post there to add my two-pennoth yet :(

Like various other people on the thread, I don't have something particularly useful to post here in the newbie section. I've lurked on and off for a while, but I've never really had a good reason to need to post until now. I just got my BFL order and want to order some cables from someone in the marketplace. So it sounds like once I post this I should just have to wait a few hours to be able to PM. Huzzah!

edit: One constructive thing I can say is that registering was a bit of a pain. I didn't see anything stating the minimum password length, but then my first go was too short. It cleared the form, and when I registered with a better password I got a confusing error that I had already registered in the past 45 seconds. In hindsight, what it meant makes sense, but it seemed like it was saying the first try with the shorter password had worked.

Is it a side-effect of your security or it's side-effect of my brand-new status?  :)

Or not.. ?

Stickying a bitinstant support thread can be easily seen as an endorsement of BitInstant. With all the delays and issues they have being having.. It's unfair to other bitcoin services too, and is somewhat useless to people outside of the united states (since they can only trade vouchers).

I'm sure that a forum thread is not the most efficient way of handling support, but why wouldn't bitinstant want the free advertising? And every time someone has an issue, it actually bumps the thread.

and they dont exist anymore

whatever happens to all these coiner sites?  omnicoin, instant, etc?

Thanks for all the newbie information. Especially the stuff about scammers. I just wish some people would update their stuff more often, like the faucet lists and such. I've been through like almost all of them, and most of the alt-coin ones don't work and the bitcoin ones take forever!

So does this post get me out of newbie jail? I guess i'll see in 4 hours, right? lol

Thanks again!

Hello All!

Finally joined after reading for a while.

Not meaning to whine here, I will most probably be out of newb-zone before anyone replies  ;D

But while I do accept and respect rules for being given normal posting rights, I find it rather senseless that only the 4 hours after the first post are accepted. I for my part have been registered for months, and logged in about 8 hours (plus a lot of time where I wasn't logged in  :D) Only I have never really known why I couldn't post and have never really cared as I was quite content reading. So I find it weird that now after posting in here I have to wait another 4 hours anways. And surely there are many cases similar to mine.

Just my thoughts, perhaps there is some deeper meaning to this way of handling things eluding me, or maybe this will be considered and changed in favor of future newbs...?  :)

We have made some designs for a new worldcoin logo and I want to post it today or tomorrow. I saw the post somehow come up in google the other day and decided to do something about it.
There are some logos on the forum already submitted but frustratingly we cant post ours yet! The deadline is 7th December so there is still time. Looking forward to posting inthe coming hours.

This will be my first post after a while of bouncing around reading various boards here.  It was definitely difficult to figure out how to post anything on this forum considering I generally don't think of myself as a n00b to cryptocurrency and didn't bother to look through the newbie topics before now.  Furthermore, for now I only want to post a specific question on a specific topic that is outside the n00b areas.  I think this practice of only being able to post to specific topics should be changed.  Someone new should be able to make 1 post on any topic, then wait the standard 4 hours before being able to post anything else, as seems to be the prerogative of the moderators here.  This is enough time for spammers to be found and dealt with appropriately.  Posting on a topic such as this one in a generalized area is highly inefficient.  I hope some more thought will be put into this soon to avoid dissuading otherwise potentially-substantial posters from joining (and no, I don't consider any post of mine to be particularly substantial; I have a question to ask, not any kind of profound statement or breakthrough technology to share).

I too have been a lurker hear for nearly a year, mined a few BTC in late 2012 and sold them for a $250 camera. OMG! (but at least I didnt buy the $250,000 pizza)
To my point... Enthusiasm IS contagious! I posted a comment on twitter about Fastcoin and one more on an IRC pump forum and 12hours later there was a massive 200% pump in FSC (I got out at 140%) it may have been coincidence but I believe in "Chinese whispers" now

It's a rarity that I sign up for forums because I always feel bad about not keeping up a good presence.

However, in my endeavors to mine Primecoins (see more on those here), I've run into a compiling snafu that I simply can't overcome by myself (and let me tell you: it's substantially awful).

My flatmates and I also deal in LTC and DOGE for the moment with some small but effective rigs, so having an account here for discussion isn't the worst idea after having read a ton over the past two months.

Cheers to the mods, admins, and the Hero Members that have made this place a fantastic source of information!

Title: First Post
Post by: Hueristic on December 22, 2013, 07:34:28 PM
Hi all,

       Dammit forgot Tab throws me to next control so rather than indenting this line I just posted a one line "Hi all"! DOH! Looks like my first post will be an edit! :D

First off Back when Bitcoin started I was a heavy F@H contributor and was on OCN working to World domination (Which we accomplished!) But in retrospect wasting all those thousands on electric and seeing no discernible impact I regret not Starting this back then. Well better late than never I guess. I tried to jump on the Doge bandwagon but Only accomplished 20k so far and it looks dead now for the returns.

I am currently trying Earthcoin that just launched but have no hope for it. I'll try to get a few thousand and stash it.

From what I can gather the best method to make BTC atm is to use a Multipool. As soon as I get a few grand Earthcoin I will switch to that unless someone helps a n00b out and explains why This is a wrong move. I have been reading for a week or so and have to say the amount of info is completely overwhelming. It took me 2 days to get my card crunching at a respectable hash. I am using a 7870XT which is the cut down Tahiti with 1536 shaders. I'm doing about 400Kh/s on it, If anyone is running one of these and can help me squeeze more out of it I will be grateful and throw some of my hard earned coins your way.

Also for some reason after a day of crunching my system is becoming very unresponsive at int 13 (optimal so far) where as it was perfectly fine previously. I use a second card for htpc on this system but I don't think that has any bearing on this issue. I have to lower the INT to 10 for my system to become fluid again but that drops my hash in half.

OK well thats my intro so hopefully some of you guys are bored enough to respond.

BTW, tysat Love GB myself! They're my second team after the Pats. Hope Rogers and Cobbs get back in time!

I am trying a more substantial post after my first post apparently did not make the grade.  I am certainly excited to be involved in the forum.  Hopefully after this post and waiting 4 hours I will be able to participate in other conversations.  It is great seeing all of these new altcoins launch, although it is obviously prudent to beware of some of the pump and dump activity that goes on with new coins.  Certainly an evolution will be taking place in altcoins - survival of the fittest dynamics.  Ok, hopefully that was a long enough post and will allow me the chance to jump into other conversations.  Let's rock and roll!

Hello.

I am having problems posting.

I had a lot to say and when i clicked post, i had been logged and the whole post was lost. I retyped in notepad and pasted into the forum, but when i clicked submit

1) It said i had to make two choices. I don't know what these choices are. Are these related to option 1 and option 2. When i just typed random text into options 1 & 2 i got a different error. The error was i had already posted to this form 360secs ago and to wait. I checked and my posting is not listed.

Please advise

5 posts and 4 hours, yikes.  Guess some people ruined it for everyone.

So before I forget, I guess I will make notes here.

I wanted to reply to this thread about a scrypt tweak for performance increase:

bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=369858.0

and note that it worked on my 7950s   but strangely doesn't affect my 7970 at all

and here is the last person that tried to make a tweak

litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=4082.0

which didn't work for me at all

The 7950s went from 610-611  to  620-625   so roughly a 2% performance increase.
On rare occasion I've noticed the rate bounce down to 610 but climb back up.
Watching the longer term WU to see what happens.

I'm curious why the 7970 is not affected at all.



Title: Re: README replies

Another question I was going to ask before I forget is if there is any benefit to upgrading from catalyst 12.6 (8.98) drivers under ubuntu vs the newer 13.1 or 13.4

I've read anecdotal stories about how 13.x is slower than the 12.6 so not sure if it is a good idea or no point.

Hi,

I subscribed to the forum and started syncing my bitcoin wallet, with the purpose of buying just enough coins to be able to buy one of those antminer u1 asic miners. Unfortunately the syncing failed and I had to restart again. Maybe because I was mining primecoins at the same time  ???

Hopefully it will finish in time before the offer expires.

Hi Newbie here, doing the Newbie dance of the 5 postings.
Is it 5, the number changes as you read :)

I have been reading this site for a few months now and would like to thank everyone for their contributions. I learned a lot.

I would also like to know how effective this Newbie processing is?
Does it create more work than you had previously?
How many Newbies make it through the process and start contributing directly?
How many do not?
Do Newbie questions get answered?

I do agree with pushing Newbies to read the rules and basic guidelines by the way. I would recommend stressing that users should use the Preview before they hit Post. It gives you a little distance before its too late :)
It would also help if the preview button landed on the preview and not the text being edited.

For my self I doubt I will get to 5 postings any time soon. :(
There is little to say until I find a problem that has not been solved yet or get involved in some of the finer details of Crypto-Currencies. So far my questions have been answered just by searching the site.

Till the next dance  ;)

BTW has anyone got any thought to add on the seizure of Ross Ulbricht's multi million dollar bitcoin wallet by the FBI? If I was him I would never have given them the private keys to the wallet. But to think they want to sell them all off for what they call a 'less volatile currency' is the real underlying story that in my humble opinion may pose a threat to the whole crypto currency network.

almost everything is a threat to the btc and the other online currencies. especially the governments which want to put taxes on everything.

I imagine the sell of coins from his seized wallet would be enough to manipulate the markets to one degree or another, but I doubt it would be enough to crash the entire network - Speculators love to buy in low afterall. It would likely just spark a feeding frenzy.

It is set to prevent spamming. The limit will be down to just 75 seconds when you have 15 activity.

Cool, I actually had a question regarding the read me.  I thought we could put referral links here and there but just not when we start a thread.  Also, the guide said something like "that's what signature blocks are for."  But actually, if we sign up for an ad campaign, we can't advertise various referral links here are there.  Also, there are various links for various topics so one signature block wouldn't really make sense.  But in the day-to-day communications of forum members it seems like it would be normal to occasionally 'refer' someone to a website and why not throw in your referral link since you are the one providing the info?

Just my 2-cents.  I just recently got into the whole PTC thing and used to never have anything to refer. 

I actually wanted to post info in the HYIP section but my post was taken down as "spam".  I'm not mad but it just seems like it's a really good deal that I'm into so I wanted to share.  But... yeah, I can see where it would get really old really fast if there were a million people posting referral links.  idk

Where can I post the link to a new BTC faucet?

I'm just a newbie here; No ref links, I understand.

Thanks so much. :)

I just want to make clear about the max activity. You said that we can have a 14 max activity every two weeks. Does it mean that we also have a maximum post every two weeks?

The limitation of 50char of Newbie is much too strict, only a half-sentence is expressable alike. :-X

Edit:
 I got it, its only the character-restriction of the signature. ;D
 Thats very acceptable.

Hi newbies,

When does your status becomes different?

Does this depends on posts, or online time, or ...... ?

Are there like numbers, for example 150 posts and you become ... etc.

Thanks in advance
