1  Other / Meta / Pool announcements on: August 01, 2014, 02:09:48 AM
Hi everyone,

As many of you know, pool advertising in Ann threads is banned, however, we do not know how much is it actually banned, and that's one of the reasons I'm starting this thread.

Pools provide a service for both miners and coin devs, we host and provide user feedback and support most of the times, some pool ops such as ocminer have even helped developing new hashing modules.

By completely banning pool anns in threads you will affect a lot of people, this is our job, hosting and managing mining pools. However it's understandable from the mods point of view that they don't want Spam on the forums, therefore here's what I propose:

  • Pool ops should be allowed to post once in a thread to announce a pool setup for a specific coin
  • Pools should not be allowed to post several times the same info over and over again.
  • Pools should not post anns with large fonts in colors and graphics, let's keep it simple and clean for everyone.

i think that by appending those small rules we can both reduce the spam on forums but without affecting so many people that would be affected by this ban.

Just my 2c.
