I am sorry, I am just using my android phone, so I dont really see it when I click on it, This is my first time hearing those two, thank you by the way.


Though I am really envious you have dash, I also want something popular like Dash, Doge, Lite or even Bitcoin itself though, I think it is really randomly assigned.

This is a nicer April Fool's prank than last year, when we had the "moondollars" substitution, or some such.  Can't exactly remember.

Yeah, random.
I never heard about Curecoin and I don't know why I would be a monero flunky.
I've talked about ETH and ETC more than any other altcoin, so I think its randomized.

Aside from Dash I don't even have a clue what my other alts are, so yes, definitely.

Yes, April fools day is for the average Joe aka 'fool' with severely impaired knowledge. Just look at the stupid surge of threads and posts in this section (primarily from people that don't even understand Bitcoin). On other, more important news: Thousands of Bitcointalk accounts hacked (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1826778.0).

Well played and here I was coming over to bcttalk after a few days thinking this was some new feature .
The forum that was supposed to be released in 2015 was the new feature.

I don't have any MNL not even a wallet but my badges says so lol.  These badges aren't accurate to which coin I'm really supporting. If it does put the badges of the coin that we actually support I guess that would also help in improving the discussions here in the forum as it already reveals some information form the users we talk talking to. That would help as to why someone why spread FUD to a coin just upon seeing the badges he wears. :)  Is there any option to change this badges?

Title: Re: New Badges
Post by: Hueristic on April 01, 2017, 11:27:13 PM
Just an FYI to you guys that would like to see permanent badges, this is why that is a bad idea.

Badges separate people into camps, those camps get more toxic to each other when the other is immediately identified as being part of a disliked camp.

A perfect example of this is Sites where you see Intel and Amd fanboys at each others throat no matter what the topic is just because they are wearing a badge the other doesn't like.

Badges while looking nice creates a toxic environment. You have all seen the Thiscoin VS thatcoin threads in the alt section, those type squabbles would spill over to completely unrelated threads. It would be nice if everyone on the interwebs were all adults that don't pre judge but that is not the world we live in, it's similar to judging someone when you first see them without getting to know them. And there are a significant amount of adults that do this which is a cause of alot of the strife in the world. Now excuse me while I try to figure out how not to give up the river while making the Mexicans pay for my wall. :P

I like my badges, pretty good addition :))

Maybe if we decide to make it permanent, should be able to choose badges?

Happy April Fools. :)

It was actually 100% random. Each user got between 1 and 4 coins, with fewer being more likely, and for each you would get a random cryptocurrency. I organized the cryptocurrencies into three tiers according to recognizability/popularity: tier 1 coins were more likely than tier 2 coins, which were more likely than tier 3. Then a random title was added to each coin name. There were a little less than 100 coins in total: I took the top 100 based on market cap and discarded a few that seemed to have never had any real interest.

But as I'd hoped, even though it was random, plenty of people just happened to have badges that were complete matches or mismatches. :)

What were the possible titles?

I know I've seen advocate, developer, follower, pooh-bah, flunky and fanboy.


Just an FYI to you guys that would like to see permanent badges, this is why that is a bad idea.

(Better have been temporary, lest we get an army of "bitcoin developers" teaching newbies how to gamble!)

This "feature" is a complete waste of time, while other issues are ignored as the administration is seemingly 'busy'. My badge is boring as well. ::)

Nah, I love the forum more :D
