41  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Giveaway threads are not allowed on: January 27, 2014, 07:17:26 PM
I think eradicating them from the Announcement section made sense. It was crazy. I participated, and it was even fun to a point, but crazy.

I was even one asking in meta about trying to sort through threads.

I think adding a sub-forum makes the most sense. Just label it "here there go dragons" and disable the report button there. Don't offer support or mediation. You still get the traffic.

Or dump altcoin altogether and linking offsite to someone willing to put up with it.

It will be funny if enough enemies are made that an altcoin (is Lightcoin considered an AltCoin?) overtakes BitCoin.

Don't be a Whig, LaserDisc, BetaMAX or RIPScript (challenge: which references do you get?) in this political battle. You had almost worthless coins noone respected once.

In the end it's your site, and as big as it is, your power to wield.

Just try to be a little more diplomatic.

And anyone claiming free speech, free market or unfair as an excuse for saying this isn't right misses the point of all three.

Those complaining about AltCoin spam probably look at unread threads forum-wide or something like that (I do). Everything on that page was giveaways.

Hopefully your new forum software addresses things like this so people can put blinders on forums. After all, not everyone cares about politics either.

Just my 2

Sounds like Whigs complaining about Republicans.

In the forums you can see when the most recent posts were made within the thread, but I think it would be useful to see when the thread itself was made (or even sort by it).

This way you can see threads that are new but have few replies, new but "on fire".

The current way newer threads get buried by very active, but older threads that get bumped constantly.


Perhaps it would help to sell sticky threads, especially in the AltCoin announcements. But charge enough to make it worth your time - AND have some standards.

Perhaps that would discourage copy-pasta coins.

Algebra is heavily used in programming.

Programming is full of

j=1; j<array.length;j++

type lines, no matter the language.

What does that line have to do with algebra?! That's an extract from an if() loop, 3 individual but related statements.

I've been programming for 20 years and can't remember the last time I needed algebra after A-level maths in school :p (but I don't do any 3D gaming progarmming, which is where I guess you're aiming this at)

I've been programming for 30 years - and have taught math in elementary school - what I stated is (albeit incredibly simple) Algebra.

Algebra is math with non-numeric objects. j in the for look is a non-numeric object. j=j+1 (represented with j++) is math. 

I am trying to address at a basic level. Not College Algebra, but more early Pre-Algebra.

Request to all ALTCOINS - Please enable CORS on your blockchain API / ABE

If you don't know what it is:
Links to the Wiki page

I have tried similar requests with LiteCoin, DogeCoin, and for giggles, PotCoin, but the "cors=true" doesn't work.

Why is this useful?

Enabling CORS allows webpages to query information about an address client-side and not require a middle man to proxy.

For example, if had a page that is willing to display transaction info, balance, stats, etc.

With CORS, this can be accomplished via Javascript in the webbrowser without problems.

Without CORS, this requires using something like , which the website then either uses their local blockchain or calls the API / ABE from the server-side.


If you can view the headers, it includes:

I think it would be useful to have access to the API that wouldn't require a middleman script, and could be built from self-contained HTML/JS.

Try some free (and basically worthless) certifications.

Although it would leave me out, many boards I have been on also limit what boards you can post in, but not in a "jail" type scenario as it was here.

For example,

reply-only, no new threads - newbie
post new threads - must be Jr. Member (except for buy/sell boards, reply-only)
anything transactional - must be Member (post in buy/sell boards)
Exclusive boards - must be above Member

No, I'm NOT taking the five minutes it takes to copy and paste a new coin together and say it will rule the world.

I'm just wondering if there's uses not yet addressed?


(Not the game purchasing stored value card)

The board (and Reddit) has "Karma", and I saw where people trade their Karma for coin via a conversion. I got to thinking about whether a plugin for board software could be created to award "coins" like "Karma" is now, but somehow the distributed portion of this breaks down.

For example, you have boards like (discussion about domain name speculation). The current value of an "NP$" (earned through posting, clicking links, etc.) is $0.014

Would a plugin for SMF or vBulletin (etc.) to either allow local "Karma" to be converted to BTC, or have the karma be a coin in and of itself that can be on exchanges?


I used to have SETI@Home on my PC for years. I never looked at what it actually is processing, but I know it did work and reported that work. Is there any way to piggyback a coin on a USEFUL distributed computing project, whether SETI or cancer research or some other "donate your time" project, where the POW for the project can somehow also be a POW for the blockchain?

I think the Karma-Bitcoin board plugin is a possibility (where bulletin board karma is already traded for fiat), a board-specific coin may be a bit complicated.

The SETICoin (or any project on this list ) is an honest question about using mining as a means to serve a humanistic "real" use.

Lowered price. expires Friday.

56  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: uBTC is better than mBTC, and here's why. on: January 20, 2014, 04:28:32 PM
If people decide to use uBTC's, call them 'bits' instead of uBTC.

1 million 'bits' in a bitcoin.


Then you could say 1.44MB or 360KB.

It would make my old Floppy Disks look valuable, lol.


On edit: that's bytes not bits, but I got a laugh anyway
