Title: Is this necessary?
Post by: inPRIVACYweBELIEVE on July 21, 2018, 06:42:33 AM
Hi guys,
Please take it easy if I sound stupid. I joined this forum yesterday and since then I am having a lot of reads. I have staked my address as well. They say, I need it if my account gets compromised. Very interesting community however I am noticing, there are a lot of people who are spamming in discussions. They are not actually replying on the topic but posting something which is not even related to the question asked by the person (the one created the thread). Very strange!

This is the most interesting yet panicking one for me...

Look at this user: tharoosta - http://archive.is/c9vT6

I found him on this page: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4554694.0

He is always including a telegram logo, a big image with his comments. It really looks annoying.

My eyes are hurting after reading this guy.

Is this thread necessary?

Probably not, but it gave me a couple of members to ignore ( not the OP ).

kitty94: So, I am ok to post anything on any thread? I do not need to engage with a conversation, make my points, find a solution etc. But my question is why do I need to talk about something which has not asked. I have seen those people are just repeating same contents.

OP, do more reading here.  I think anyone who's been on bitcointalk for more than a few months knows exactly what you're talking about--just do a little reading in Meta and all the rants about shitposters.  In fact, do a search in Meta for "shitposter"

If you didn't know, word leaked out in many different countries that you could earn money here by renting out your signature and avatar space and by doing different spamming bounties.  That's why a lot of people came here, and the signature campaigns usually pay per post, and usually only in the English sections.  Combine that with the fact that many members have a poor grasp of the language, and you get exactly what you see:  a bunch of nonsense posts, many of which sound the same.

Look at Bitcoin Discussion.  That should be the crown jewel of bitcointalk, but it's become a snake pit of idiotic spam.  People know they can write a bunch of garbage, since no one actually reads anything there and whatever they write won't usually get reported as a shitpost because it's supersandwiched in between 1000 other shitposts.  When I discovered the forum it was the first thing I noticed as well.

You can report users like that as having advertisements/banners outside of signature isn't allowed.

You can't post images as a Newbie due to abuse. You can purchase a 'copper membership' for a small fee to be able to do so or just wait until you become a Junior Member.

Reported. Good catch, OP.
Actually, the spam problem, as told, is all over the forum. Join some of the discussions in here, you will find some passionate debates regarding the matter, and since you seem concerned, probably you will get some good answers here in meta.

For getting tokens should we apply everywhere and join each and every campaign???

Thank you The Pharmacist. I am doing my reading and I am finding it interesting as I am digging. After reading you, it started to make sense for me LOL. However, the amount of money I have seen the forum gives for the signature, is not really much. Spamming and shitposting for that amount is really waste of time. Where is this Bitcoin Discussion by the way?

@hilariousetc, thanks for the response. I see there is a link to report and hopefully I will use it often. It really looks annoying. How do I buy a copper membership and how much is that little amount? Image is one thing I am missing a lot  :)

@seoincorporation, I will try to engage with more conversations and hopefully we will be able to learn stuffs from each others. I would not mind to use you lots help to understand the forum better.

@samarnaaz, what token you are talking about mate? I really don't have any clue. Hopefully someone else on the forum will be able to assist you.

Says BTC0.00208333 which is around fifteen dollars for me. Not sure if it's the same price for everyone though.

Looks like the price is fixed. Here is a quote from theymos where he states the same price (0.00208333 BTC).

I see two transactions from you, both for 0.00018580 BTC. 0.00018580*2 = 0.0003716 BTC, which is less than the 0.00208333 BTC copper membership.

It will not be the same for everyone. I was watching some videos about North Korea other day, it was sad to know that people over there are earning $1 - $3 a month (keyword $1 - $3 a month!). I hope I am really wrong.

Here is a reference: https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-average-salary-that-North-Koreans-make

Back to the membership things, thank you for offering me however I do not have much urgency to have the feature now. I am ok to wait until I have the desire rank for it.

@TryNinja
For me it also states 0.00208333 BTC
The price for a membership should be same for everyone or there are something else? Just curious to know by the way.

I don't get it. What does this have to do with the price of the Cooper Member upgrade?

It doesn't.

I don't think there's a reason to discuss relative wealth here...

Jet Cash: What is ignore a member? I assume OP means original post?

When you look next to a post, and see your username and your coins, look down a bit and ignore is blow the trust rating, it's becoming a more and more useful fuction here...

OP is original post or original poster. You ignore a user not a post so in this case it's original poster.

~Original post snip~

This happens a lot, I'll teach you another function, on the bottom right of a post there's a report to moderator button, it's even better than the ignore button in a lot of cases!

Another educational tip, that's the altcoin section, in a few weeks/months you'll learn that if yo upost a topic there you won't get a definitive answer. You'll just get peopel replying to something similar to your question but not give you an actual answer, people rephrasing your question and asking it again or people that rephrase your question and ask their own. That is if you get a response with those users churning out 60 topics every five minutes!

Stick to the good parts of the forum and leave the spammers where they are we don't want them to swamp the good parts too.

Not sure which part you are unsure about. Please excuse my newb writing style  :)

Not to upgrade:
The copper membership was suggested so that image can be enabled for me. It would be nice to have images enabled however I figured out I am not desperate for it ATM.

The North Korea stuffs:
To response hilariousetc statement, "Not sure if it's the same price for everyone though."

It should be, isn't it? My confusion was from this: "Looks like the price is fixed."

Thanks a ton mate, you are truly helpful. I never expected this much of welcoming from an unknown space.

For getting tokens ignored should we apply shitpost everywhere and join spam each and every campaign board???

You nailed it bud. Great job.


OP

In the end report anything that seems fishy to you. The worst you'll get is a bad report; not a big deal really.

I know I let seeing these multiplatform spammers, regurgitating their post across all platforms and promoting an ico at the base.

Wasn't sure at the time so I reported it and, boom they were gone.

Good luck

Edit: here is a good topic on reporting

Anything that breaks the rules (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=703657.0)
Although as it's a forum, everything is quite subjective. Sometimes things like trolling don't get dealt with quite a bit here as it allows for more freedom of discussion.

Bounty managers...
I don't know why they post in other parts of the altcoin section that their bounty managers don't pay, maybe they fancy spamming everywhere else in the hope of gaining merits...
They are normally people who have hundreds of alts there (alternative accounts) that keep posting on a bounty so that they can claim their hundredth of a cent a few hundred times :).

This is a good tip. You can learn by reporting posts that seem like they will break the rules (e.g if you spot a phishing link or a referral link or just a general spammer) any bad marks you get will tell you where you have gone wrong and a low accuracy is better than nothing and you're still helping the community.

Thank you for the link, I already had a quick scan, I am gonna need more reading. Too much information to absorb and the topic creator (Welsh) knows his writing.

At the moment I am looking for phishing link and a referral link like jackg suggested. These are easy to spot for me.

@jackg
I am also trying to absorb the rules as well. The reason I am not rushing is, I do not want to end up finding myself doing error and other people reports my posts. I also do not want to hurt others with my mistakes.

That's all I need, a little helping hand. I am sure some day I will be able to make my own decisions when it comes to keep the community clean and healthy.

Yeah, the main things you're after are:
1. Phishing and referral links
2. If you read a post that is completely off topic from the OP then report it (although IMO if it's directed that way by the OP then it's alright).
3. REALLY low quality posts, like posts taht really don't make sense or posts that are extermely short (it's fine to make a few errors when posting, it isn't fine to make enough errors that your posts become unreadable).

No one finds out if you report their posts (other than the moderators of that board), there's no public database of this informaiton, everythign is stored with the moderators and admins for review so there's no penalty for making lots of bad reports... That being said, you might want to try to keep your percentage high if you can as it's quite satisfying to have a high percentage :).

kitty94: So, I am ok to post anything on any thread? I do not need to engage with a conversation, make my points, find a solution etc.

It is not okay to post "anything" on this thread unless it is worth it to be talk about, I mean it would be a spamming obviously when you are just going to create random topics that are not even related to the thread where you are going to post it. You just have to "Create a topic" in a certain thread where you think it is related if it is really necessary like you are really seeking for some answers about it.

But my question is why do I need to talk about something which has not asked. I have seen those people are just repeating same contents. 

And about this, you have already said it that your eyes were hurting when you read someone's opinion spamming a certain topic, so I guess the answer has already been given by yourself like what is the point on talking to someone if you clearly know that there is point at all, it is like you are fooling yourself to make a nonsense conversation to a better one.
