No it isn't.
The page should be reverted. And the vandals from the new 'gocoin solution' should get blacklisted from the wiki, to boot, i think.

thank you for your help :)

I own a Bitcoin Nonprofit organization and would like to be listed on the page! My organization is QLF Incorporated and you can read about us at How do I add my listing to the page? Thank you in advance!


Either create a wiki account and pay the anti-spam fee, or,

Tell me what section of the nonprofit page you want to be added to, and a brief description of your organization, and I'll do it for you.

If you tell me which section you want your entry to go on the Trade page, and what brief description you want to have listed next to your entry, i can add it for you.

How to remove pages of old/nonworking sites or services?
If the site/service had its own page and was of some note, just edit the page and mention that the site no longer exists. I'd suggest to leave the content intact, for the purpose of preserving history.
If you are talking about entries in pages which have a "list of $things", just delete entry from the list.

My username over there is the same as it is here in the forums, halfawake.

It is fixed, thanks. There was a FAQ file on disk that the server tried to serve instead of the page.

Any specific areas that the community wants/needs improvement on?

join #bitcoin-wiki to hang out and see if any ideas float by. also might want to start a new thread for wiki ideas.

I see two different payment amounts.

Fixed. it is 0.001 btc.

If I send the requested amount in two payments, will that work?

I am not sure. I will check.

I also suggest that you add some text to alert people to the risk of having their bitcoin addresses linked to their wiki identity e.g. by folks looking for transactions of the right amount just before the initial wiki edit of a newly-trusted user.
Made a note about privacy concerns on the cryptopayment page. Thanks for the suggestion.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Forum now hosting the Bitcoin Wiki on: March 23, 2014, 10:09:05 PM
It's true.  It's asking me to pay 0.001 bitcoins to edit the wiki, or roughly $0.57.  I'd personally prefer to see the same system the Bitcointalk forums used to have, where you just have to have your account active for 3 hours or something before you can edit.  (Or go out of the Newbie forum, as it was here.)

Oddly, I just noticed the page upped the price to 0.003 bitcoins, which is kind of lame.

it's an antispam measure, and a pretty effective one at that. so... blame the spammers. the inconsistency in the payment amount is just something we have to fix. it is 0.001 BTC presently, i think (will verify and get back to you).

if you really can't afford 50 cents to prove you're not a spammer, feel free to post a request on the wiki subforum,, with the following info:
- nature of your request ('i want edit rights')
- your wiki account username
- the languages you want to edit (the language wikis each has separate group rights - we hope to fix this soon)

You'll then be granted edit privileges as soon as one of the admins notices your request and finds the time to act on it.

Same as here: btceic

It is done. Thanks for your patience. Smiley

Thanks for the update, please check all of the recent edit payment requests.

I sent mine in on 02/28/2013 with tx: 92d73078e20b575e24532472382adc1c7c2005dc83ee9ac432d7633dc0b110fe to 1NFgB4FzWRxo7khinuwUb26pJkX2NStZNH


Hi, what's your wiki username?
14  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Wiki governance on: May 06, 2013, 03:21:24 AM
    Hope this information helps, and I'm volunteering to help fork the the "talk page archiving" implementation & documentation from, and will be careful to avoid a violation of any relevant creative commons license terms (attribution procedures)[/list]

    That's great! Give it a try and let's see how it works out - no harm it trying. Hopefully we can get away with mostly a copy/paste job from wp :).
    15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Wiki Captcha required - 99% new user creation is spam on: April 30, 2013, 02:35:11 PM
    The current bitcoinpayment system is pretty lightly engineered - just adding people to a group when they send a payment. (It was made by MagicalTux, for the record).

    Requiring payment even before creating a user would take some thinking and coding, and as you can guess, Mtux is pretty swamped with mtgox stuff right now, so don't hold your breath. :)

    We've also talked about setting up an automatic sweeper bot to wipe new accounts that never verified, but again - time constraint. Mtux runs the wiki, so he's the one who'd have to do it.

    In the meantime, the spam user creation problem can be taken care of by just filtering out the User namespace from the recent changes list. It's not perfect, since it also kills edits of user pages, but it really does go a long way. Try it:
    16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why BTC Code sux on: April 05, 2013, 02:22:15 AM
    oh great, coding by vote from people who don't know how to code.

    that would surely result in great quality software. </sarcasm>

    certainly the bitcoin client is not perfect and could use improvement in certain respects (hey, it's beta!), but coming in and saying "this is crap, let's just can the whole dev team and code by popular vote" is not really a productive way to go about achieving said improvement.

    both methods return the error "No Secret Key".

    So where do I input my secret key into this step?

    it appears you are missing the private key. Are you sure you are trying to use your own keypair, and if so, are you sure you haven't deleted your keyring?

    The Web of Trust is a broken system...

    Proof here...

    Not broken, working as intended. You have to use trust paths, wherein ratings from people you don't trust get ignored automagically.
