That's "24-hour periods from now", not calendar days.

There was a bug for the last ~7 hours which prevented all newbie posts, so that's going to make a big dent in the stats.

Strange thing. Was this an attack on the forum?

Nah, I apparently fat-fingered a configuration file just before going to sleep...

I suspect that it won't be a major issue because they'll be losing their ~10 dollars every time they get banned. It won't be profitable, hopefully. If it seems to be a major source of spam in a few months, I'd reconsider.
1065  Other / Meta / Re: Newbies can't make posts? on: September 19, 2018, 06:49:38 PM
Damn it...

It's fixed now.
1066  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Core 0.16.3 Released on: September 19, 2018, 03:28:59 AM
how can a transaction have a duplicate input? can you give an example also point us to its PR on github?

Such a transaction is invalid, so you won't find any examples in the block chain. But Bitcoin Core crashes upon detecting its invalidness in a valid-PoW block (not when the transaction is free-floating). The crash is caused by an optimization which had incorrect assumptions; the fix simply disables the optimization, changing a false to a true.
1067  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh on: September 19, 2018, 02:29:53 AM
The "#MeToo" stuff is often guilty-until-proven-innocent, which I absolutely hate, but the accuser in this case apparently has some years-old records of the accusation. It may be a stronger case than usual, though it still has plenty of the guilty-until-proven-innocent smell, and CoinCube brings up a lot of interesting points that I hadn't heard in the media coverage of this.

Whether it's true or not, I wouldn't be surprised. Kavanaugh has been groomed by the Federalist Society for decades, so the Democrats could've easily set up the accuser's corroborating records long in advance. I really wouldn't put it past them. But I also wouldn't put it past Kavanaugh to sexually assault someone; it sounds like he was part of a disgusting rich-kids culture where that kind of thing could easily happen.

It was politically a smart move by the democrats to delay the announcement until now. If the Republicans force through the nomination, then the Democrats can use that as "Republicans hate women!" in the election. If they stop it, then that's a win for the democrats in itself.

Personally, I hope that Kavanaugh gets replaced by Amy Coney Barrett, though that's probably unlikely.

The member search page only returns a maximum number of results. Currently there are 3145 copper members. Maybe I'll compile stats over time later. For now, you could search the Bitcoin block chain for transactions of the copper-member amount.
1069  Bitcoin / Important Announcements / DoS in Bitcoin Core: update required on: September 18, 2018, 09:47:06 PM
Important update: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5034070.0

If you are currently running Bitcoin Core, then you must upgrade to 0.16.3 as soon as possible. You can download it from bitcoin.org or bitcoincore.org or via BitTorrent, and as always, make sure that you verify the download.

If you only occasionally run Bitcoin Core, then it is less urgent, though it would be best to upgrade as soon as convenient.

A bug was found which allows anyone capable of mining a sufficient-PoW block to crash Bitcoin Core nodes running versions 0.14.0 to 0.16.2. Stored funds are not at risk.

Since most altcoins are based on Bitcoin Core, I would guess that many of them are also affected, though I don't have any specific info on that at this time. Also, Core derivatives such as Knots are affected and have their own updates.

Note that only "autobans" count. ("Autobans" are not actually automatic, but are a subset of bans done using the quick-ban tools. Most mods can only do autobans.)

Where are you seeing that, on the cloudflare page?

I remember the JS-less version from recaptcha v1 (retired), but I didn't think that v2 supported that. Maybe it's new.
1072  Other / Meta / Re: Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements on: September 17, 2018, 11:28:35 AM
I think this decision does not fit the rule of law.

1073  Other / Meta / Re: Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements on: September 17, 2018, 08:48:35 AM
As a Legendary, can I pay the fee and to be a Copper member?

You can, but there isn't much point in doing so.
1074  Other / Meta / Re: Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements on: September 17, 2018, 07:19:25 AM
Are these restrictions for those who have been demoted? "newbie wear sigature"[1]
[1] https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4796382.msg43272911#msg43272911

I forgot to wipe non-demoted newbies. Fixed, thanks.

Also, I just realized that I did wipe 0-merit Jr Members who were also copper members. I undid that.

- Reduced-accuracy link filtering
I translated this topic, but I didn't understand this part correctly, any help?

Newbies are subject to additional filtering which has a higher rate of false positives.
1075  Other / Meta / Re: Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements on: September 17, 2018, 07:05:18 AM
I want to add! Cryptocurrency is made for decentralization and the forum should be the same, and with your new rules you make your forum centralized!!!

Oh, it's very decentralized. It uses the VWYF algorithm (now with added blockchain™) to ensure complete decentralization. How it works is very simple: if you don't like it, go make your own forum.
1076  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Trump's campaign manager Manafort and his lawyer Cohen guilty of 8 felonies each on: September 17, 2018, 05:23:23 AM
Manafort's guilty plea surprised me a lot. I hope at some point we get all of the details behind this.

Not after this. Trump isn't gonna pardon a snitch.

Agreed.
1077  Other / Meta / Re: Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements on: September 17, 2018, 05:11:05 AM
I think you should consider the ability to buy merit for yourself. You can already effectively do this by way of purchasing a copper membership. Based upon the fact that well under 1% of active users have received a single merit, there need to be additional ways for people who do not post garbage to rank up.

Buying merit or normal ranks is like buying yourself a bunch of trophies to put on your shelf. It's stupid, and it's an insult to everyone who achieved it legitimately. I can't see ever doing that. I don't particularly mind letting people pay for some of the privileges of these things, such as with copper membership, but it should be a parallel system.

Copper membership is good. Now, if you want to participate in signature campaigns, you can either pay the $10-$20 for copper membership or accomplish the herculean task of making one good post. I don't think that it's unreasonable in either case.

If people are making good posts but are still struggling to get merit, then that's a problem with the merit system and should be fixed on my end. Demanding money in order to bypass a broken system would be really bad. But AFAICT the merit system actually is reasonably effective at identifying good posters.
1078  Other / Meta / Re: Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements on: September 17, 2018, 04:35:02 AM
P.S. I copied all of the signatures and personal texts before wiping them from the demoted users. If bounty managers need info about this, send me a PM like "Please send me a list of all demoted users who had '_______' in their signature".
1079  Other / Meta / Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements on: September 17, 2018, 04:27:20 AM
Due to excessive garbage-posting, you now need 1 merit to be a Jr Member. All existing Jr Members who didn't meet the requirement were demoted. Also, newbies can no longer set any signature or personal text.

Note that this does not affect:
 - PM rate-limiting, which is based purely on activity & whitelisted status.
 - "You must wait ___ seconds...", which is based purely on activity & whitelisted status.
 
But it does affect:
 - Voting in polls
 - Patroller jurisdiction
 - The "ignore newbie PMs" option.
 - "The body is omitted from this email because the sender is a newbie."
 - BBCode limits
 - Reduced-accuracy link filtering
 - Board restrictions

Many of these limitations can be eliminated with a copper membership. In particular, you can set a signature at Member level if you wear a copper membership.

One reason that I was hesitant to do this before is that there are an awful lot of newbie restrictions, and I don't want the forum to be unwelcoming to good newbies. I'll think about tying some of those to activity instead of rank in the future.
 
With help from DdmrDdmr, I just added 36 new merit sources, which should help newbies achieve the requirement. But if you're incapable of posting anything worthwhile, then you will never rank up, and you shouldn't: this isn't the forum for you.
