1  Other / Meta / Would you like to access Bitcointalk though a console? on: May 05, 2022, 12:41:58 PM
As the world moves more towards open standards, websites and services are focusing a lot on offering an extensive set of APIs for interact, turning more into some protocols with clients built on top.
Take Twitter for example:

Would you use such a client, if existed, to read and maybe post on Bitcointalk?

A Bitcoin Forum logo... it's been at the back of my mind for a long time. Something minimalist that would serve as a symbol for our community, Bitcointalk.
After going through a few vague ideas I had along the years, I settled upon the design that took the longest click and the least to create.

Here it is:

It references the liberal and hacky BitcoinTalk way, a bold BBCode tag all in a "Magic Internet Money" vibe but in a minimalist way. It's upper left defies the border intentionally, just as Bitcoin.
You could reproduce it by hand and it would mean the same thing - it would actually be cool to see it copied in different ways.

Where would something like this be used? I'm thinking of things like merchandise and maybe even a BitcoinTalk physical coin, as was discussed in the BitcoinTalkShow thread, etc.
What do you think?
Do you have any ideas for a forum logo?

This is not meant to be official nor to be a replacement for the icon/logo created by satoshi - hereby calling it the Bitcointalk favicoin  Grin

Bitcointalk links tend to be long and would sometimes prefer a showrter link at times especially for sharing to Twitter, Reddit, etc.

How it works:
Here's a thread: -> (and /thread/ works too)
Even shorter: -> (half the size)
How about a user?;u=3 > / (almost a third the size)
And of course, an individual post: > / (a third shorter but could be further optimized)
Such a service has been on my mind for a few years, but just recently found and got hold of a good domain for this.
Nothing is being logged, it's just redirected. Eg: ->
Sharing this to see if other people find it useful. If you do, let me know and might keep offering it.
6  Economy / Services / BitcoinTalkShow graphics contest on: August 13, 2021, 09:05:47 PM
Welcome to the first BitcoinTalkShow graphics contest!

The BitcoinTalkShow is an upcoming Youtube channel focused around Bitcointalk, more about it here: Bitcointalk Youtube channel - what would you like to see?
The show needs some graphics, current priority is a logo and a banner for Youtube and other social media.
And it would be awesome to have the community involved to get them made!

The proposed theme would be combining these two:
- BitcoinTalk inspired (the banner could draw some inspiration from the forum's header layout and color scheme);
- Retrofuture: think of the Back to the Future / Tron universe, bright colors and neon lights.

But feel free to implement your own ideas!

General rules and structure:
- The contest has two categories: Logo and Banner art.
- Participating in just one category is allowed and multiple submissions should be ok.
- Sizes and ratios should fit Youtube requirements and content should follow YouTube Community Guidelines.
- Copying the design from somewhere else / trying to cheat the contest could get you disqualified.
- The winner(s) will be chosen by measuring things like public feedback and what we find more appropiate for this Youtube project.
- Late submissions, before announcing the winner(s), are not guaranteed consideration.
- You could submit lower quality/resolution images, however you will have to provide high quality ones if you win.  

Contest prizes:
Logo: 3.9 mBTC
Banner 3.2 mBTC
And possible bonuses!

Contest starts now and the ending date is August 25 2021, 23:59 GMT.
Winner(s) will be revealed by August 28 2021.

Bonus perks for participating:
We might collaborate for further graphics and artwork in the future.
Get a shoutout in a future video about this contest.
There could also be some surprise prizes in this contest!

Feel free to share this contest!
Good luck everyone and we're really excited to see what you come up with!

It's been a while since theymos suggested a Youtube channel for Bitcointalk. The general sentiment seemed that it would be cool to have one. And I agree!

So let's say someone would start filming tomorrow. What type of content/themes would you like to see?
Things that you'd like to watch, whether you're a grumpy Bitcointalk veteran or just hearing out about our wonderful community.

Was tinkering around and printed/painted that. Could we make it a thing please?  Cheesy

July 28 21:
Great info from everyone so far, thank you!
Here's the current plan and progress:
Hired a company to film and edit. Production value aimed: very high!
First filming day will be really soon, so the first few episodes will be prerecorded and released when ready.
This whole thing an experiment, so content and format will likely evolve over time, as long as there's interest for it.
Likely themes for the first few episodes feature the BitcoinTalk Anniversary, Community Awards 2020, etc.
In time we'll start doing educational material as well, such as forum guides and news bits. Also interviews!
Aug 05 21:
First filming day was a few days ago. Hopefully it won't be the only filming day, looking forward to adding more of the cool ideas in!  Grin
We're also working on the channel's artwork. We'll likely need more materials so if you know any crypto artists that would feel inspired by the idea, point them here!
After we get a teaser and basic graphics done, the URLs will go public.

Dupa o perioada in care nu am mai organizat intalniri publice, revin cu o propunere:

Data: 2 Octombrie, 19:00;
Loc: Hop Garden, Splaiul Unirii, 225, Bucuresti;
Tinuta: Casual Smiley.

Voi reveni cu detaliile priviind locul si ora pana la sfarsitul saptamanii.
Asa cum am mai facut in trecut, va fi o intalnire de tip "discutii descentralizate", casual la o cafea si bere.

Avand in vedere contextul actual numarul de locuri va fi limitat (in jur de 25 persoane).

Va rugam sa spuneti aici cine doreste sa vina, in functie de asta vom alege locul de intalnire.
11  Economy / Games and rounds / Bitcoin Pizza Day contest on Discord on: May 22, 2020, 01:30:38 AM
I started a Discord server for the 2020 Halving, which you can read and discuss about here:
There's currently another contest going on, for the Bitcoin Pizza Day (if you don't know what that is about, you can read about it here: ).

Invite link: (shouldn't expire)

The rules of the contest are in the #pizza-day-event channel. It's basically a bake off of Bitcoin themed pizzas where everyone can vote on the entries Smiley.

Contest ends on May 23 23:59PM GMT.
Voting closes May 26 23:59PM GMT.

Current prize pool: 0.011BTC.

It's on a short notice, but thought it might be fun to hang out for the 2020 Halving event so we made a Discord server. - Apparently might be a thing now  Cheesy

Invite link: (shouldn't expire)

Server structure

These are the channels so far:
#channel-votes (voting and gauging interest for further channels)
#general (main discussion area)
#bitcoin-discussion (self-explanatory, first channel added by votes)

Bitcointalk Staff
Halving 🍕 2020

Important mentions
- Don't trust Discord with any sensitive info. Act like you're in a public place/chatroom.
- We don't verify members. If you see a familiar user there there's no guarantee that it's not an impersonator (if there's interest, I might add a custom role to users that want and link their user here with the Discord server).
- There's only one text and voice channel for now, we'll add more as needed.
- There aren't any explicit rules or guidelines yet, when in doubt - look at the Bitcointalk rules and guidelines.
- The occasion the server was created is the 2020 Halving event, however it's reason is to give Bitcointalk members a place to chat.

- By popular demand, the server will be used as a general place to hang out, not just for the Halving.
- Over 100 150 300 members so far.
- Currently doing votes on which channels to add next.
- There's less drama than anyone probably expected.
- Discussing how to better communicate/collaborate on Epochtalk.
- Might need to get better at making announcement threads.

Community support:
- Thank you TryNinja for creating a signature!
A quick signature for those who want to spread more about the server:

- Thanks Welsh for archiving the Halving event contest here

Ideas for events, contests and whatnot are appreciated!
Thanks everyone!

15  Other / Meta / [Userscript] Report to moderator on post history on: January 24, 2019, 07:04:18 PM
After recent discussion about it's usefulness, I've made a small userscript to add the Report to moderator button on the Show lasts posts of this person page.

You can upload it to a user script manager (eg:GreaseMonkey for FF).
// ==UserScript==
// @name     Post history report button
// @version  1.1
// @grant    none
// @include;u=*;sa=showPosts*
// @include;threads;u=*;sa=showPosts*
// @require
// ==/UserScript==

var postLinks = $('td.middletext a:last-of-type');
var buttonLink = $("span.middletext").slice(1);

for (var i = 0; i < postLinks.length; i++) {
  var postLink = $(postLinks[i]);
  var reportLink = "<a href=" + postLink.prop("href").replace("index.php?", "index.php?action=reporttm;").replace(".msg", ";msg=") + ">Report to moderator</a>";
  $(buttonLink[i]).prepend (reportLink);

Here is how it looks:

LMK if you found issues.
