That's already in the requirements:

Quote from: Requirements
Allow users to export/import lists of good posters, hidden posts, and ignored users through three separate webs of trust. Most people will want to use a single trust list for this, though, so there should also be an easy way of editing all trust lists at once.

Quote from: Requirements
About webs of trust

Each web of trust is composed of data, a separate trust list per user, and a trust limit setting per user from 0 to 100. A trust list is a list of users with associated trust scores from 0 to 100. Users see (by default) only the data of users in their trust networks. Trust networks are calculated from their trust lists.

The trust network algorithm should work something like this: To find a user's trust network, put everyone in his trust list with score above his trust limit into his trust network. Then get the trust network of everyone in his trust network. Combine all of these trust networks into a single list. Ensure that each user is listed only once -- average scores if a user appears more than once. Then for each user in this list, add them to the original user's trust network only if they do not already exist there. There should be some recursion limit.

(This sounds complicated, but there will probably be an easy-to-use UI for simple tasks such as subscribing to a single user's ignore list.)

Interesting, I didn't know you were able to do that. That makes the OP pretty redundant then.

I think that he actually wants to ban "misquotes". But these are often useful, so I'm not going to disallow them.

Where can I read more about this environment? I'm very interested in having the same thing for my own app.

It's Gitian. See https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/doc/gitian-building.md for some info about Bitcoin's use of it.

"I'm going to give away 10 BTC to the first guy to send me 5 BTC, quote this so I can't change this"

Trustworthy member quotes this, and later receives a PM:

"Hey, some guy actually sent me 5 BTC, can you change your quote for 1 BTC so I don't have to pay them?"

All edits are recorded, so I can confirm/deny whether someone did this if I'm asked.
5  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Can I verify that the official binary was compiled from the open source code? on: April 20, 2014, 01:02:52 AM
Yes. The official binary is compiled in a special environment that can be exactly replicated so that the binary can be verified. It's a bit difficult to set up, though.

9  Economy / Auctions / *Quick Auction*: Two forum ad slots on: April 18, 2014, 12:52:30 PM
Two forum ad slots in the current round are available. You will get 4-8 days of ad time if you send me your ad immediately after you win this auction. See the normal ad auction topic for more info, including ad rules:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=571118.0

This auction is for two slots. You cannot bid on just one slot.

Special ad rules:
- If you haven't advertised with the forum before, keep your ad simple. Otherwise, it is likely to be invalid and be rejected.
- No sites that did not exist 30 days ago.
- No banks or investment services.
- I reserve the right to reject any service.

Auction rules:
- You must have at least 60 activity to participate.
- All bid prices must be evenly divisible by 0.001 BTC.
- The bidding starts at 1.5 BTC.
- The auction will end 8-15 hours from the time of this post, chosen arbitrarily.
- I can reject bids, even long after they are made. If I do, the next-highest bidder wins, even if their bid is higher than it would have been without the rejected bids.
- If it is not obvious from looking at your forum profile, you must say in your first bid which service you will be advertising.
- If you don't pay after winning, I will give you negative trust.

My stock PM for advertisers with more detailed ad creation rules/hints:
Each of your slots can have a different ad. You can use HTML/CSS styling with some freedom. However:
- Ads must not contain images (not even data URI images) or JavaScript
- Ads must not contain forms
- Ads must not animate (no <blink> or <marquee>). Subtle CSS hover effects may be allowed, since other links on the forum do that.
- Ads must not load things from external sites.
- Ads must not be taller than 3 lines of default-styled text (as they appear on my browser, which is about 700px wide). This is around 42px.
- I will reject ads if I find them to be especially annoying

You can send me valid BBcode (the markup used when making posts), or you can send me HTML with inline CSS (style="..."), or you can send me HTML plus separate CSS that will be put into the <head>. Do not minify anything you send me -- I very often need to modify it slightly. Note that your ad's style may be affected by the board's default CSS, especially if you use inline CSS. Using <div> tags is not recommended unless you give them inline-block style.

Common mistakes when creating ads:
- It is invalid XHTML to put a <div> inside of an <a>.
- Your ads will be affected by the forum's CSS. Your ads will by default have text-align:center and font-size:90%; your links will have :hover{text-decoration:underline}; etc. Make sure you insert your ad into a downloaded version of https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adinfo to see whether it looks OK with the inherited styles.
- If your top-level element is a block element (<div>, <span style="display:block">, etc.), your ad will be preceded by a line break, making it too tall. Your top-level element should almost certainly be inline or inline-block.
- Special symbols, especially including & symbols in URLs, need to be converted into entities like &amp;.

To bypass Adblock Plus, you should:
- Use header CSS, not inline.
- Tell me that you want a randomized CSS class. You must use no more than 4 CSS classes.
- Tell me that you want the anti-ABP JavaScript link fix.
- Use only one <a> and no other tags if possible. If your ads get blocked because of matching done on something inside of your ad, you are responsible for noticing this and giving me new ad HTML. (However, note that I do not guarantee that ABP will be bypassed on my end.)

Impression stats are here:
https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adstats
If you're planning on collecting stats on clicks, you must put some tag in the URL. You will not get any referrer info from here, since browsers don't list HTTPS sites as referrers. I'd be interested in reading any stats you collect.
10  Economy / Auctions / Advertise on this forum - Round 118 on: April 15, 2014, 03:12:31 AM
The forum sells ad space in the area beneath the first post of every topic page. About 25% of ad income goes to the forum moderators as thanks for all of their work. (There are many moderators, so each moderator gets only a small amount -- moderators should be seen as volunteers, not employees.) The rest is stored in the forum's treasury (verifiably), where it sits until the forum needs it.

Ads are allowed to contain any non-annoying HTML/CSS style. No images, JavaScript, or animation (no marquee or blinking). Ads must appear 3 or fewer lines tall in my browser (Firefox, 700px wide). Ad text may not contain lies, misrepresentation, or inappropriate language. Ads may not link directly to any NSFW page. Ads may be rejected for other reasons, and I may remove ads even after they are accepted.

There are 10 total ad slots which are randomly rotated. So one ad slot has a one in ten chance of appearing. Eight of the slots are for sale here. Ads appear only on topic pages with more than one post, and only for people using the default theme.

The ad lasts at least 7 days starting from when I put it up. (However, if you look at the ad history you'll see that ads usually get at least 8 days, and sometimes as many as 10, but this is random and definitely not guaranteed.)

Stats

Exact historical impression counts per slot:

Info about the current ad slots:
https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adinfo

Ad blocking

Hero members, Donators, VIPs, and moderators have the ability to disable ads. I don't expect many people to use this option. These people don't increase the impression counts for your ads.

I try to bypass Adblock Plus filters as much as possible, though this is not guaranteed. It is difficult or impossible for ABP filters to block the ad space itself without blocking posts. However, filters can match against the URLs in your links, your CSS classes and style attributes, and the HTML structure of your ads.

To prevent matches against URLs: I have some JavaScript which fixes links blocked by ABP. You must tell me if you want this for your ads. When someone with ABP and JavaScript enabled views your ads, your links are changed to a special randomized bitcointalk.org URL which redirects to your site when visited. People without ABP are unaffected, even if they don't have JavaScript enabled. The downsides are:
- ABP users will see the redirection link when they hover over the link, even if they disable ABP for the forum.
- Getting referral stats might become even more difficult.
- Some users might get a warning when redirecting from https to http.

To prevent matching on CSS classes/styles: Don't use inline CSS. I can give your ad a CSS class that is randomized on each pageload, but you must request this.

To prevent matching against your HTML structure: Use only one <a> and no other tags if possible. If your ads get blocked because of matching done on something inside of your ad, you are responsible for noticing this and giving me new ad HTML.

Auction rules

Post your bids in this thread. Prices must be stated in BTC per slot. You must state the max number of slots you want. When the auction ends, the highest bidders will have their slots filled until all eight slots are filled.

I reserve the right to reject bids, even days after the bid is made. In particular, bids from people with less than 15 activity points are likely to be rejected. I recommend not getting into a bidding war with someone who has less than 15 activity points, as their bids might not be accepted, but your latest bids will still stand. If you need to know right away whether someone's bids will be accepted, PM me.

So if someone bids for 8 slots @ 5 BTC and this is the highest bid, then he'll get all 8 slots. If the two highest bids are 8 slots @ 4 BTC and 1 slot @ 5 BTC, then the first person will get 7 slots and the second person will get 1 slot.

The notation "2 @ 5" means 2 slots for 5 BTC each. Not 2 slots for 5 BTC total.

- When you post a bid, the bids in your previous posts are considered to be automatically canceled. You can put multiple bids in one post, however.
- All bid prices must be evenly divisible by 0.05.
- The bidding starts at 0.50.
- I will end the auction at an arbitrary time no more than 12 days from now. (I will probably end the auction 1-3 days before the ads are scheduled to go up.)
- If two people bid at the same price, the person who bid first will have his slots filled first.
- Bids are considered invalid and will be ignored if they do not specify both a price and a max quantity, or if they could not possibly win any slots

If these rules are confusing, look at some of the past forum ad auctions to see how it's done.

You must pay for your slots within 24 hours of receiving the payment address. Otherwise your slots may be sold to someone else.

Hmm... I thought that the leaked memory would only include OpenSSL-specific stuff, but I did some more research and I think you're right: user passwords could have possibly been leaked, though it would have been difficult.

I'll log everyone out and add this info to the header.

It was, but it was fixed hours after the vulnerability was announced. It's very unlikely IMO that the private key was compromised, and an attacker would also need to be able to read traffic between you and the forum to see anything, so a lot of concern isn't necessary IMO. I will still update the TLS keys as soon as I can. (RapidSSL/NameCheap has some technical problems with reissues -- it seems that they always sign the last certificate you sent them when doing a reissue, so you actually need to reissue twice to change the cert, and this takes time.)

You'll notice that some links (such as the logout link) end in a long code like this:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=logout;sesc=3da541559918a808c2402bba5012f6c
All forms also have something like this, but it's hidden. The purpose of this code is to prevent CSRF attacks.

If you click a link or send a form that contains the wrong code, then you get the "session verification failed" error. This can happen when your code changes, but you're still looking at the old version of the page for some reason. Aggressive caching could cause this. Or maybe your browser is discarding the PHPSESSID cookie very frequently for some reason; your session code changes whenever you're issued a new PHPSESSID.
20  Other / Meta / Re: been getting session verification failures.... on: April 12, 2014, 03:09:15 AM
I very rarely see that error. Maybe your browser is handling cookies strangely or aggressively caching pages.
