It says Today at 05:56:41 PM for me so that's in a little under 30 mins. Check back after then and it'll likely be closed.

I'm looking for some way of funding bitcoin for a new computer to develop a web site that has so far created. I could send postcards or small gifts from Ukraine as a reward, or offer advertising space on the site.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=12.0

This is currently the closest section to that. I don't know if it has rules about seeking crowd funding.

Or Lending, but this just seems to me like some guy wants other people to buy him a new computer.

Op, if you're serious about this then either make a thread in Project Development if the site actually has anything to do with bitcoin or if it doesn't then Lending, but asking for a loan in such a way without collateral will very likely get you negative feedback.

You can't. You need to be a Full Member which requires 120 activity.

To name just a handful.

There will also be mobile support on the new forum software that is currently being developed:

The new forum software is mobile friendly. You can check out the open beta at beta.bitcointalk.org. As of now though, that beta site is not updated with the actual site.

There are also a few apps available to view the forum on mobile however they are no longer developed and generally don't work very well.

Most of those accounts are newbies. What are the benefits of hacking newbies?
Take a look at this thread where these newbie hacked accounts are used for trust farming/false trading.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1793966.msg18067586#msg18067586
That boomin guy is the latest (caught) alt of MariusTi aka steamproject aka tberty aka Dorkslayz etc etc who uses an army of dozens of alts to fake vouch or spam bump his threads of torrent invites (and he's probably had around a 100 banned). He either has a massive stockpile of them or buys them from account sellers but I'm more inclined to believe that he has just farmed/created them himself as there's a lot that were just used to make one or two posts to bump/vouch for his thread then discarded, though some of the older ones recently came back to life and started selling the torrent invites when a lot of his other accounts got found out and banned. This behaviour with him has been going on for years with him and not just on this forum either as he's been banned from numerous forums and never learns.

So you basically just agree that hacking (old) newbie accounts do have benefits for scammer's, and illustrating those benefits to scammer's.

I'm not sure what the benefits of hacking a zero or one post newbie account are, but he has or had a very large stockpile of newbie accounts he created himself to do his shilling. See these ones:

Most were just used once to make a bump of his thread then discarded but once he had his main accounts banned some of them suddenly returned back to life and he started selling with those ones.

Steamproject ran his thread nearly 2 years on bct. What exactly was he supposed to "learn" from that?

He wasn't caught until recently and it was his inability to not follow the marketplace rules repeatedly that kept getting him into trouble. When he gets banned for the behaviour he just comes back on more alts and does the same and seems to have done this on multiple forums.

I have no idea how many accounts have been compromised but I don't think it's as bad as you're claiming. I suppose certain accounts could be locked but people weep like widows when their accounts are auto locked as a precautionary measure when someone tries to reset the password via the security question and they cry even more when they have to wait for it to be restored. Also, if the account hasn't posted an address or they can no longer sign a message from one then they're screwed that way and they would then blame the forum for that so we're damned if we do and damned if we don't.

I should respond here too.
You have no idea how many accounts have been compromised, Yet somehow "auto conclude" i'm wrong?

I'm not sure where you get the figure of 'hundreds of thousands' of accounts have been hacked from as it seems exaggerated but if you can provide evidence of that then I'll happily admit I'm wrong but the exact figure seems beside the point.

You compare "auto locked" accounts with "systemically hacked" account's, but they are not hacked in the same way. (afaik)
Security question accounts are by default "locked out" till staff action, while systemically (password) hacked accounts are by default "allowed in" until staff action?

I'm not saying they are hacked in the same way but the outcome is still the same and staff can't win. How can we do anything about accounts that are not yet hacked? People were told to change their account passwords and if they didn't for whatever reason then their accounts are at risk but if they had a very strong password then they'd very likely be fine. What are you suggesting we do? Lock all accounts that haven't changed their passwords since the hack or if they haven't posted after x amount of time? If certain accounts are locked as a precautionary measure then what happens when the original owner can't prove that it belongs to him? Then he cries at the forum for unnecessarily doing this to his account. I'm not sure what you would like the admins to do but if you've got a foolproof plan I'd love to hear it.

You go on about those "auto locked" members weeping like widows, when many have clear proof but still have to wait for months for any action to be taken, then use the damnation of your (staff/admin) inaction's on restoring those few "auto locked" accounts as reason why you can't do anything about 100,000's of completely differently identifiable "systemically (password) hacked" accounts. Correct?



If it takes months to restore accounts now then what do you expect when there's (in your words) hundreds of thousands to restore? Only admins can restore accounts and there's nothing that regular staff can do about it. Yeah, there should be another admin or two to deal with account recoveries and finding alts or whether but that's something only theymos can act on.

How would this stop anything? Account sellers would just sell the address with the account as some already do.

Kindly enlighten how sticking to one wallet address or using same for all campaigns compromise once privacy??
If users doesn't agree and enters new bitcoin address, the campaign manager will not accept him in campaign.
As far as question of someone losing his/her wallet is conserned,that should be an exception.If every 10th or 20th member ask for wallet change because his wallet is compromised,we know something is wrong.

Because some people don't want everyone knowing how much coins they have and if you only have one address it's easy to find out. Bitcoin was also designed with the recommendation that you use a new address for every transaction. This is a silly idea and wouldn't even work.

As far as I'm aware people are getting their accounts hacked because they didn't change their account passwords after the data breach and unfortunately there's not much that can be done about it if they don't. There will be several forms of 2-factor auth on the new forum so helpfully that will prevent future issues if people use it.

I think add warning above thread in digital goods with big/bold font should work well even though it's annoying.

This is also a possibility, though may be overkill (and I'm sure many would complain about it as they do with the newbie red-font PM warning).

if admin ban posting url of such website then it would help as scammers won't able to post autobuy links like posting links of some websites are already banned so adding autobuy sites to that list would help.

This has also been suggested but likely only preventing Newbies to post them (which would stop those url spambots as well). Persistent scammers would just farm accounts to get around this though and some seem to already have an arsenal of farmed accounts that instantly reactivate once their previous account gets banned.

No game for today? I would prefer the Leicester game personally as I think it's going to be a very interesting game and could go any way. I think Leicester only need a 1-0 win to go through.
