I want to put a link to a thread in my signature of something like the following:

Check out my thread here
Check out my thread here

But it doesn't seem to be showing up (maybe it's going underneath it). Anyone know if it's possible for me to format it to get it to fit? Maybe it's not possible but if someone can help me out I'll appreciate it.

These are the signatures I can use if one if them is any better:

Coinroll - Bitcoin Dice

Coinroll - Bitcoin Casino

Coinroll - Bitcoin Gambling

Top one is the one I'm currently using. Quote the post for the actual sig codes.
2  Economy / Exchanges / Do Coinbase have an official thread or representatives here? on: September 02, 2017, 07:14:15 AM
Need to get in contact with them as their Customer Service is pathetic. Been over two months now and not a single response to several support requests. Verified my bank successfully twice now and I'm still not able to withdraw funds.
3  Economy / Games and rounds / Bitcointalk English Premier League Betting Pool | Current pot: 0.2btc on: August 09, 2017, 04:59:57 PM
This thread is only for people who have paid to participate. If you have not paid do not post in here. If you want to join in please read how to below.

The new English Premier League season will start on Friday the 11th of August 2017 and I've decided to organise a betting pool on the weekly results. The competition is similar to Skybet's SuperSix where you will get points for predicting the correct score and/or outcome but over all the games played that week and points will be counted and tallied up throughout the season. The person with the most points at the end of the season will win the pot but there will be second and third consolation prizes.

It will cost 0.01BTC to enter and currently the prize money will be around (in BTC equivalent):

400 1st place
80 2nd place
20 3rd place

But this may change depending on how many people sign up. Currently we have 21 users who have pledged 0.01BTC but hopefully we can get a few more before Friday.

If you wish to join in at any time during the season you can do so by sending 0.01BTC to the following address and PM me with the txid: 1NpyfbUeiEMtdCqqBwWNPMSmHLPLLynqfU

If any anonymous (or not so anonymous) donor wants to spice things up for us by adding money into the pot I'm sure that will be greatly appreciated by all  Grin.

How to play: At the beginning of every week I will post the fixtures in advance and you just need to predict what you think the exact score will be of all the games played. You will get 40 points for a correct/exact score and 10 points for a correct outcome.


If you picked:

Arsenal v Leicester 0-1
Burnley v Swansea 0-0
Crystal Palace v West Brom 1-1

And the actual results are:

Arsenal v Leicester 2-1 Loss: 0 points
Burnley v Swansea 0-0 Win: 40 points
Crystal Palace v West Brom 2-2 Win: 10 points

You would get 50 points from those three selections. The winner would obviously be the person who gets the most points at the end of the season.

We will be using the BBC's Premier League Predictor where you can input your predictions right up until kick off. Nobody else can see your picks put everyone can see the leader board. However, if you wish to post your choices in here you can do. Here's how the BBC Predictor works:

EPL fixtures:

Local rule: To keep this thread clean please only post your predictions in here. Every week I will post the weeks fixtures in here and you can quote them with your choices. At the end of the week after all the games have been played you can also  quote your post with your total points if you wish to do so. If you wish to discuss people's results and picks along the season you can do so in the original discussion thread here:

Only users who have paid the 0.01BTC to play will be allowed to post in either threads and those who haven't paid will have their posts removed.


Current pot: 0.2
4  Economy / Exchanges / Withdrawing from Coinbase to UK bank account? on: July 21, 2017, 07:30:06 AM
Anyone know how to do this as I can't see any option to withdraw funds currently. Just a 'Request' and 'send' button which don't seem to be relevant. I set up a SEPA transfer a day or two ago to verify my bank account so maybe that hasn't been verified yet as I think it can take a few days. Anyone know where the withdraw feature is?
5  Economy / Reputation / Muhammed Zakir hacked? Account reactivated just now on: June 14, 2017, 12:56:40 PM;u=320943 Muhammed Zakir

Recently woke up since 2015 and can't seem to provide any verification currently:

Hello everybody! Its been a long time! Grin I had personal issues and weren't able to be active in BT. Although, I was able to login a few months ago, I am unable to login to my pc. After fumbling through my things, I was able to get BT password, however, both my pgp & bitcoin address are lost. I am still trying to recover my pc account. Hopefully, I will recover it, though chances are low!

Btw, did I miss anything important? Especially posts in "Meta", "Bitcoin Discussion" and about popular/prominent users. Please post link to those topics if possible! Thanks in advanced! Smiley

Muhammed Zakir

I think negative is warranted here until he can provide reasonable proof that this is actually the real Muhammed Zakir.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Bitcointalk English Premier League pool betting Discussion Thread on: May 24, 2017, 11:34:00 AM
Please note: This thread is only for those participating in the pool. If you want to join see below:

The pool is now open for deposits. Please send 0.01 to the following address: 1NpyfbUeiEMtdCqqBwWNPMSmHLPLLynqfU

Everyone should receive a PM with it shortly.

The new English Premier League season will start on the 12th August 2017 and I was wondering if any one wanted to do a pool on the results of every game each weekend? I tried to do this last year but at short notice with only two weeks before the season so thought I'd give it another go with ample time. With DirectBet closing their prediction competition those who enjoyed that can get in on the action here every weekend on the Premier League.

How it would work: Every week each person involved will predict what they think the exact scores will be of all the games that will be played that week. You will get 10 points for a correct/exact score prediction and 5 for a correct outcome.


If you picked:

Arsenal v Leicester 0-1
Burnley v Swansea 0-0
Crystal Palace v West Brom 1-1

And the actual results are:

Arsenal v Leicester 2-1 Loss: 0 points
Burnley v Swansea 0-0 Win: 10 points
Crystal Palace v West Brom 2-2 Win: 5 points

You would get 50 points from those three selections. The winner would obviously be the person who gets the most points over the season.


Currently as it stands entry is 20 for the entire season. I will take a small fee for organising, escrowing, tallying up points and paying out the coins. This fee will depend on how many users there are but it will be about 10%. If someone knows of a website or could create a bot or website to make the process of tallying the points up and submitting scores that would make things a lot easier and lower whatever commission I take.

This thread is to just get an idea of the demand and a feeler for what people would prefer and what amount they would be comfortable in betting and hopefully we can get something started before the league starts in a few months. If you have any suggestions they are also welcome.

Local Rule: Anyone who posts that they will take part for a specific value and fail to do so if the pool goes ahead at that buy-in will likely have all their posts from this thread removed so please only post if you're genuinely interested in playing and not just to sig spam. Thanks.

7  Other / Politics & Society / Bitcoin entrepreneur Amir Taaki quizzed over fighting in Syria on: March 29, 2017, 05:10:45 PM

A London-based software developer and "hacker" has said he is under police investigation after going to Syria to fight against the Islamic State group.

Amir Taaki, 29, a leading developer of online currency Bitcoin, was once named by Forbes as one of the most influential young people in technology.

Mr Taaki told the BBC he returned to the UK from Syria in 2016 and has spent the past 12 months on police bail

Lolwut? Is this the first anyone has heard of this? Was wondering what happened to this guy.

11  Economy / Services / Signature Campaign Guidelines (read this before starting or joining a campaign) on: November 17, 2016, 12:46:01 PM
Due to the unacceptable level of spam and low-quality posts signature campaigns generate we have decided to offer some guidelines of what is and isn't acceptable and an explanation of the punishments for users who continually make low quality contributions and the campaigns that continue to pay them to do so. Signature campaigns should be a way to reward users for quality contributions and only those that do should be paid, but at the moment it has become a way for many campaign operators to lazily and cheaply advertise their business by paying greedy users to spam whatever unsubstantial rubbish they can be bothered putting the minimal amount of effort in to and this will no longer be tolerated.

Campaign Participants:

Staff do not want to hand out bans for unconstructive posts but if we feel that you as a user are continually making very poor or unsubstantial posts due to your paid signature the following bans will be issued:

First offence: 7 days
Second offence: 14 days
Third offence: 30 days
Fourth: Permanent ban

Your first ban is your first warning. If you have to be banned for a fourth time it is permanent and you will no longer be allowed to participate on the forum under any accounts. Note: If you are banned on one account then you are not allowed to post under any accounts you own for the duration of your ban. The only exception to this rule is Meta where you can discuss the circumstances of your ban if you wish to do so but anywhere outside of that sub will be considered ban evasion and will get your ban doubled, but it is generally best to just patiently wait out your ban and improve your posts on return and hopefully no further bans will be needed.

Warning: Anyone caught copying other users' posts or plagiarising content from elsewhere on the web will be immediately permabanned. You shouldn't need a warning to know that this isn't acceptable under any circumstances.

What counts as an unsubstantial or unconstructive post? There is obviously no set definition to what constitutes unconstructive posting as it is entirely subjective and is ultimately down to Staff opinion on what posts are constructive or not, but generally it is quite easy to spot a spammer posting only for payment. Spam can come in many forms, but a typical spammer's posts will often follow some sort of pattern which will be immediately obvious upon inspection and will usually consist of one or two sentences of rehashed opinion posted as fast as possible with the minimal amount of effort being put in. A quality/constructive poster will generally have no pattern to their posting history and will have posts ranging from one word to one sentence to several paragraphs and everything in between and this is what you should be aiming for. If you find yourself in a position where you are forcing yourself to reply to a thread due to your signature campaign then that's a pretty good indication that you're likely making unsubstantial posts.

Helpful suggestions:

Firstly, just put some actual thought into your posts. Actually read the thread and the replies already posted. Often-times people will just read the title of the thread and post without fully understanding the topic or issue and make either irrelevant posts or say the same thing that has been said numerous times before.

If somebody asks a specific question and it gets answered adequately within the first post or two nobody needs to read another ten replies saying the same thing just reworded slightly. If you cannot offer any additional info or clarify/correct something then you probably don't need to post it.

If you struggle with English it's probably best to try stick to your Local boards. Your English does not need to be anywhere near perfect and you will not be penalised for this but if people generally can't understand what you're saying then it will likely be considered unsubstantial or spam.

Short replies are not always bad and long ones are not always good. Sometimes all that is required is a simple one word yes or no response, but stretching out an answer just to appear constructive usually has the opposite effect.

Please note that these guidelines are a last ditch attempt to clean the forum up from an issue caused almost entirely by spam from paid to post campaigns and if you want to be able to continue to earn bitcoins in such a way then please do your bit to help. Don't force yourself to make posts and if you see someone making poor posts either report them to the moderators or give them a friendly PM warning and link them to this thread. If things do not change around here pretty quickly then the only solution will be to prohibit signatures from the forum entirely so it's down to you as signature participants to help make that change if you want to continue to earn from them.

Campaign Operators:

Signature Campaigns are a great way to introduce your business and advertise your services to the bitcoin ecosystem but this cannot be abused by you paying people to make poor contributions en masse. As a signature campaign operator you will ultimately be held responsible for the quality of posts of users bearing your signature advertisement and you will need to monitor your users closely or it will be quickly abused. If you are running a campaign and it becomes blatantly obvious to Staff that you are doing little to nothing to stop spam on your campaign you will be issued a PM warning by a Global Moderator that you need to make immediate improvements to curb low-quality posts. You will have 7 days to remove low-quality posters and respond to the message detailing what you are going to do to make changes to your campaign to reduce the amount of spam. If improvements are not noticeable within 21 days of that and Staff do not believe you are doing enough to prevent low quality posts your signatures will be blacklisted from the forum by an Admin and you will no longer be permitted to advertise here in such a way. The Staff and Admins do not want to have to do this but it's a last resort in an attempt to clean up the forum as signature campaigns cannot continue to operate here in such a lazy way as it is not fair that others have to go through pages of drivel to find anything of substance nor should Staff be left to clean up the mess you are paying people to make.

Running a campaign:

Running a campaign is not an easy task and it requires someone actively monitoring participants daily and this cannot be left to Staff to deal with or for other users to report to you. If you cannot commit to doing this or do not have someone within your company who can do the job to an acceptable standard then you should either hire someone to do so or close your campaign and look at alternative ways of advertising. If you want to hire a Campaign Manager then create a thread in the Services section requesting one as there are many that are willing to do so for a reasonable fee, but make sure they can do the job effectively as hiring a manager who isn't going to do the job efficiently will not make you immune from punishments.

Types of campaigns:

There are generally two types of campaigns: 'Fixed' campaigns which offer a fixed amount of bitcoins for a minimum of X amount of posts and 'Pay Per Post' which is pretty self-explanatory. Pay Per Post campaigns pay for every post that a user makes and thus tend to be the most abused whilst fixed campaigns tend to limit the amount of spam generated. It's up to you which campaign you choose and both are fine just as long as you have someone monitoring them. If you don't then either form of campaign will be abused. If you want to check out or compare other signature campaigns an overview of all the currently active ones can be found here.

Suggested guidelines:

You should only start a campaign if you have someone willing to keep a very close eye on your participants posts. If you do not then a signature campaign is not for you.

Do not just automatically accept any user that signs up to your campaign. Check their posts first. If they're all short sentences or unsubstantial or in very poor English then they're likely not going to change their habits. If every campaign only accepts and pays for users who have made fairly constructive posts then this will instantly clean up the forum as any poor posters will have to improve if they want to earn anything from a campaign.

Consider only accepting higher-ranked accounts. Not only do lower-ranked members tend to make the most spam, they also have limited signature space for your advertisement. Full Members and above would be recommended, but if you want to pay Newbies then that's entirely up to you, just remember that you are responsible for the posts they make.

You cannot rely on a bot to run your campaign for you. Bots are great for counting and tallying up valid posts and even for paying users but they are useless in determining actual post quality and you need someone to be monitoring users along side it.

Do not take on more users than you can handle. It is almost impossible for one campaign manager to monitor hundreds of users making thousands of posts a day. Instead of paying as many users as possible, limit it to a manageable amount as having a handful of quality posters is better than hundreds of spammers who will only give your company a bad name/image on the forum.

Consider only paying for certain sections/sub boards. Do you really want to pay people to post in Off Topic or Games and Rounds? If you do then that's entirely up to you but don't be surprised when users exploit these sections with unsubstantial posts.

Consider not accepting users with negative feedback. It never looks good when users have negative feedback and 99% of the time the feedback is there for a good reason, but if you want to take this on a case by case basis then that's down to you.

Remember, these are only suggested guidelines but if you do not think you will be able to follow them or keep the spam down to an absolute minimum then please look at alternative ways of advertising. Forum ad slots can be purchased via auction from the Auctions board here.

Please note: You as a campaign will not be warned or have your signatures removed for having a handful of low quality posters on your campaign especially if they're quickly dealt with. We accept that no campaign will be able to stop spam 100% of the time but these guidelines are there for the campaigns where it becomes blatantly obvious they are doing little to nothing at all to try prevent spam and are happily paying people to post rubbish continually even after a warning. Please monitor your users closely and there should be no issues.

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Low quality topics do not belong here. on: October 15, 2016, 10:51:58 AM
Low value topics that do not encourage constructive discussion do not belong in Bitcoin Discussion. Threads not directly about news or developments within the Bitcoin ecosystem such as the following all now belong in Off Topic:

If i give you 10 BTC what will you do?
In 20 years, what would you like to do with your bitcoin?
If bitcoin dropped to $1, what you do?
What is your plan to get rich with Bitcoin?
Would it be impossible to make 14BTC by the end of the year?
if you rewarded 1btc

Please do not create any more threads asking what you will do with 1,2,10,100 bitcoins etc. Any threads that are deemed largely unimportant or unsubstantial in nature by Staff will either moved to Off Topic or trashed. Please report any threads you believe to be unsubstantial or don't meet the above criteria. Thanks.
