Oh, the whole trust system here is abused to the bone. Expose a scammer with power and he will give you red trust. Expose more scammers and you'll be considered by others as a scammer yourself. There is absolutely no objectivity at all in the trust system here.

But to make things clear: Can I buy an account without being punished or not? I find it somewhat humiliating to be a newbie among all those big star Legendaries and Heroes.

This thread will explain the trusts system

In short, everyone builds up their own trust network and you see yourself at DT0 because you obviously trust yourself.
Everyone will see trust left by DT1 and DT2 members and they will also see trust left by people they added to their trust network. Trust left by anyone else will be hidden by default although you can change the setting to see down to whatever level you want.

Thanks. That makes things a bit clearer.

Some more active people should receive special "powers" like trust or something like that, or people with more trust should be more active in the scam sections, so the scammers will be tagged.
No. Giving out trust or distrust should simply not be centralized in persons. That's the police state model. The forum should construct a contitutional state model. Where members are judged on base of clear rules and sound proof. And not by the whims of authonomous persons. The latter works only when you give the power in the hands of honest persons. And honesty is not located in green trust points. And dishonesty not in red ones. There are plenty of devious greenies and honest reddies around here.

They are the two levels of Default Trust. EX: DefaultTrust is DT0, people trusted by DT0 are DT1, and people trusted by DT1 are DT2, etc.
I don't get it. Most profiles have 0 trust. Then there are profiles with red trust -x. And profiles with green trust +x. Am I at DT0? When will you enter DT1 and when DT2? When I gain trust, will I immediately be DT1? Do I need 10+ or 100+ green trust to enter DT2? And is there no level DT-1 for profiles with negative trust?

It is not just moderators but any trusted member of the community (DT1 or DT2) that can give negative trust which will make the account wortless.

What does DT1 and DT2 mean?

It's money. It doesn't have a bad side on itself. But it brings up the bad side in people. That's the most bad about Bitcoin. Just have a good look around here to see what I mean.

Going that direction, there's no reason in putting criminals in jail, they will always find a way to get back on breaking the law.
Going into that metaphore: Before we send people to prison we need a proper court of justice, instead of the police state we have now.

Gain friends. Preferably influentual ones. Or ramble with a sack of Bitcoins. People here will do anything for Bitcoins.

More important than the question whether a revolver or a shotgun should be used is the question who is allowed to wear the sherriff badge.

Building an honest forum should start at the top. As the situation is now it is impossible to discern between scammers and honest members. For the scammer might just as well be the Legendary one with green trust and the honest one a member with red trust.

The other option is to decentralize moderation and build the forum on blockchain.
