wow. you can't even mentiion it. Why is "bitcointalk" + apostrophe S blacklisted!?

Maybe that one is a bit harsh nowadays. Smiley I'll remove it. There used to be a spam/scam site with "bitcointalks" in the URL, but I think it's gone now.

AFAIK, it's impossible to bypass these special newbie wordfilters without mangling the URL in extreme ways. You might try encoding the URL in base64 (or whatever) to explain the filter that you're having trouble with.

Use the "report to moderator" link for all mod action requests that have anything to do with posts. Everyone with jurisdiction over the post (global mods, patrollers, and local mods) will see the report.

For other requests, posting in Meta is often a good idea. Or you could contact any global mod.

I fixed it. The problem was that the given BBcode was so very invalid that SMF got into an infinite loop while attempting to parse it. Similar crazy-invalid BBcode will now return "INVALID BBCODE" instead of breaking the page.
1166  Other / Meta / Re: Something wrong with the Search function? on: April 27, 2014, 05:29:16 PM
I think that that kind of error has something to do with the way SMF creates search indexes, but I haven't looked into SMF's search much at all. Trying different search words might help.

Very nice set up. I wonder how much the average # of daily unique visitors is and bandwidth usage.

About 14,520,000 hits per day (168/second). ~15 GB/day.

1169  Other / Meta / Re: REST IN PEACE PARAIPAN on: April 26, 2014, 01:49:06 PM
This is very sad... I didn't even know that he was sick. He was with the community for a long time, and he was a very good person.

Does anyone know how to contact his family? Someone should immediately tell them that paraipan had at least 250 BTC of the forum's money (and probably more personal money) hidden away somewhere, so they shouldn't throw away any of his stuff. I'll eventually (after an appropriate period of time) need to contact them about returning the forum's money. Hopefully recovery is possible.
1170  Economy / Auctions / Advertise on this forum - Round 119 on: April 25, 2014, 09:53:16 PM
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.)


Exact historical impression counts per slot:

Info about the current ad slots:

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 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.

What was done, theymos? Just out of curiosity. Otherone locked, so couldnt ask there.

New disks were added. We were running out of space. We actually had/have 6 SSDs, but they're in RAID arrays, so the usable space was limited. We added two 500 GB conventional drives in RAID 1.
1172  Economy / Auctions / Re: Advertise on this forum - Round 118 on: April 25, 2014, 09:25:33 PM

Unfortunately, you've been scammed. Sorry. In the future, you should always carefully check that people requesting money are who they say they are.

I cooperate with police in scam investigations. I can provide them with the scammer's IP addresses and other account info. If you get police involved, have them email me from an official police address.

Bicknellski is in the default trust network via CanaryInTheMine. You should contact him.
1176  Other / New forum software / Re: Use other member's ignore lists on: April 21, 2014, 01:43:46 AM
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.)
1177  Other / Meta / Re: Just wondering if we can make quotes unchangeable on: April 20, 2014, 05:37:03 PM
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 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.
1180  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.
