Title: Would you like to see ChangeTip working here and in forums generally?
Post by: Frost on March 11, 2015, 02:20:51 PM
As per title question... What is your opinion? Would you like to see ChangeTip working here and in forums generally? Do you think it will happen and if so, how could it be implemented?

I am not a fan of change tip over here. I think it should work on platforms where the majority of the user base is blind about bitcoins.

How do you mean that?

I think it would be cool and I like the idea. But since it is not really needed to tip someone I haven't missed it.

I'd like to see it or something like it but only if it was non-intrusive and users could choose to ignore / switch the option if they wish.

Maybe because it's a good way of spreading awareness and adoption to those unfamiliar with it, but on a forum like this people are obviously already aware of bitcoin, but as a reward for certain things I think it would be nice.

This is the reply of theymos :


I've thought about that before, but I think that there might be legal problems with that. It might make the forum a "money transmitter".

I think that was regarding this forum implementing their own one, not a third party one like changetip (though I could be wrong and he was answering to both options, but if Reddit has no problems then hopefully this forum wouldn't either).

Either implement changetip to the forums or create an internal changetip function. Would also be great if it supported like the top 20 altcoins.

Very interesting. Didn't think about this point.

You are right, but do you really think theymos will implement changetip (a third party site, not an internal one)? I hope he will add this feature in the new forum software, I do not think it is difficult or am I wrong?

No. ChangeTip must die. (http://hackingdistributed.com/2014/12/17/changetip-must-die/)

Really don't see the point when you can already tip members with their profile's btc address (assuming they've got one).

Not against it either, good if there was an option to hide Changetip if implemented. At the very least it would give people a choice.

I think the problem is that some people want an user-friendly system, like changetip (this is the unique reason valid).

What is un-user friendly about copy/pasting someone's BTC address into your wallet and sending them a tip?

I think ChangeTip is great for Twitter and the like, but totally unnecessary here.

ChangeTip is so extremely annoying on reddit. I don't understand why this can't be done via PMs....
I hope it dies and doesn't reach BTT.

It's not a massive deal but it's still a bit of a faff copying and pasting the address then booting up your wallet just to send some dust which likely isn't worth it given the transaction fees. Changetip just makes it convenient.

Personally I like seeing who sent who what but PM-ing may be a good option or the ability to turn off seeing the notification for those that don't care about it.

The part in bold is what I'm meaning when I said "not user friendly". Not for me, but only for a lot of people that "want" an immediate and responsive software (I hope you understand).

Yeah I understand that, it would streamline btc tips between forum members. My main gripe would be all the changetip payment spam posts clogging up the threads, find it annoying on reddit when you're trying to read all the posts.

There must be a way to achive that without it being a post (like on reddit currently).

I'm sure it can. Someone above mentioned getting it in a PM, though maybe a small/unobtrusive little note under the post would be best.

The problem with that little note is that it must be integrated deep into the forum software then.

I don't see anything wrong with it either if it's implemented properly, thing is though, most of us all know how to use the Bitcoin client and we all end up posting our addresses at some point if we want to receive money, I don't really think something like this would be such a big deal.

I am gonna tip this guy some. Great post! This (https://twitter.com/d_seaman/status/545804158566006786) blew my mind! :D

If this won't act as a "money transmitter" like theymos said, I am okay with it! :)

i dont want changetip here because it is more convinient to send any bits directly to a users btc address here

No. If you want to receive tips, all you need to do here is post your address at your profile or signature. So ChangeTip would be useless and inconvenient here (because you would need to register with them to receive the bitcoins)

There is now even 2 places to add the addresses in the profile

ChangeTip is more than just tipping as well, its a public show of support. "I like what you're doing, here is a token amount of btc, I hope others do the same".
