This happens to ChartBuddy too... Its images aren't that large.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178336.msg4186673#msg4186673

That image is offline:
http://www.rtcons.com/wall/16067.14.small.png?1=2

Actually check images before complaining about the proxy... If the proxy says that it's an invalid image, then it just might be an invalid image.
1162  Other / Meta / Re: Image Proxy on: December 28, 2013, 02:23:16 PM
Images must be less than 1.5MB. Resize or compress your image.
1163  Other / Meta / Re: Images now proxied on: December 27, 2013, 01:48:20 AM
bitcointalk.org now runs its own image proxy. GIFs will work now, and images will not be cached. However, images that don't load completely after a few seconds will still not work, and invalid URLs in [img] tags are less likely to work than before. Images must not be larger than 1.5 MB. You are only allowed to download so many images via the proxy before you're banned for a while, but no one acting reasonably should run into this. The proxy can't be used except through posts. Old image URLs will expire after a few months.

Is it fixed now?
1165  Other / Meta / Re: Bad certificate, what is going on? on: December 26, 2013, 09:34:24 PM
I created that certificate (same public key as the bitcointalk.org cert, actually), but it obviously shouldn't be served for bitcointalk.org. I don't see it served for bitcointalk.org, though. Maybe your browsers aren't sending a Host header or something? I will figure out how to change the default cert back to the bitcointalk.org one.

Your block.sh isn't a valid executable. It needs to start with a #! line or be executed by a shell explicitly.
1167  Other / Meta / Re: Activity & new membergroup limits on: December 25, 2013, 03:50:28 AM
What are the time limits on posting and the levels??
I know 360 seconds are for new people like me, but was wondering if there was break down somewhere on this.

Code:
waittime = 360;
if(activity >= 15)
        waittime = (int)(90 - activity);
if(activity >= 60)
        waittime=(int)(34.7586 - (0.0793103 * activity));
if(activity >= 100)
        waittime = max((int)(14-(activity/50)), 4);
1168  Other / Meta / Re: Moderator application on: December 23, 2013, 08:31:21 PM
How is this accuracy counted exactly? I just reported a spambot, clicked back and it already had accepted it and added to my accuracy score. I assumed a mod would check it before granting a plus or minus point.

The number of reports is the raw number of reports, but the percentage only updates when the report is processed by a moderator.

1170  Economy / Auctions / Advertise on this forum - Round 106 on: December 21, 2013, 06:05:07 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. Ads will be prefixed with "Advertisement:". 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.

There are 10 total ad slots which are randomly rotated. So one ad slot has a one in ten chance of appearing. Seven 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 frequently get 1-2 extra days, but this is random and definitely not guaranteed.)

Stats

Exact historical impression counts per slot:
https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adstats

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 seven slots are filled.

So if someone bids for 7 slots @ 5 BTC and this is the highest bid, then he'll get all 7 slots. If the two highest bids are 7 slots @ 4 BTC and 1 slot @ 5 BTC, then the first person will get 6 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 0.25.
- 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. I also post periodic status updates which should help make things clear.

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

I ended up accepting all ads.

Ads are now up:
https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adinfo

These 5 people paid the most and will have their ads in round 105: infamousdutch, sagrid, Stunna, BitcoinFr34k, and seleme.

The raffle will work like this:
- I will take the block hash of block 274285, hash it once with SHA-256, and convert the result to binary.
- Starting at the left of the binary hash output, I will take 9 bits. If this is greater than 340, I will throw it out. Otherwise, whoever owns the ticket with this number wins a slot. (Tickets shown above, inclusive on both sides.) You can win more than once.
- I will then repeat with the next 9 bits, etc. until all 5 slots are filled. If I use up all of the bits in this hash, I will hash the hash again to add more data to the end of the stream.

Thanks to everyone who participated! I won't put up the next ad auction for about a week.

Results of the raffle:
Code:
Block 274285
Hash: 0000000000000003edde363e9fe772c2b1e96abe39f27689033bf0ea1b7f2dbc
2nd hash: 9778c5f0c20e55ac6309736d40d272fcdf9c5f460a6d0246529baeb2908dce3b
Binary:
100101110 = 302 (sagrid)
111100011 = 483 (XXX)
000101111 = 47 (infamousdutch)
100001100 = 268 (goldNET)
001000001 = 65 (infamousdutch)
110010101 = 405 (XXX)
011010110 = 214 (uk1)

If I made an error, you need to tell within the next few days or it'll be too late.

So Round 105 will be:

Slots Person
3 infamousdutch
2 sagrid
1 Stunna
1 BitcoinFr34k

If I wanted, could I buy every ad slot available with a variety of ads?

You can buy slots from the people who won them. One ad per slot.

when would be the next opportunity to get into the advertising train? Or is the chance gone for two years? Smiley

Normal auctions will resume in a few days. I'll probably do something similar to this in a year.
1173  Other / Meta / Re: Forum avatar on: December 16, 2013, 08:59:24 AM
Yar, rather than fixing the profile picture issue, Theymos just went ahead and commissioned a complete overhaul with new forum software. I'd imagine that you will be able to upload avatars after its completion.

Probably sooner, but it's a very low priority.
1174  Other / Meta / Re: Alternate channnel to know about what is going on while the forum is down? on: December 16, 2013, 08:57:55 AM
I usually publish the details to #bitcoin first and rely on the people there to relay the info elsewhere. If the downtime is very long, I might post a more detailed comment on Reddit.
1175  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: The Change Transaction? on: December 15, 2013, 07:49:08 AM
A single transaction can send money to many people at once. In your example, you'd send 6 to Sally and 1 to yourself in a single transaction. You don't need to trust the recipient.

If someone have access to 20 accounts, he could make a normal "hero member" super trusted
and scam with it, like offering escrow or buying/selling bitcoins
or simply sell trust ratings to potential scammers

You don't understand how the Trust system works.

1180  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: How to generate an address starting with 3 (instead of 1) ? on: December 11, 2013, 02:24:06 AM
In Bitcoin-Qt, open the debug console and enter:
Code:
createmultisig 1 '["full public key or address in your wallet"]'

It'll give you a "multisig" P2SH address starting with 3 (but requiring only one signature). If you have the private key for the given public key, you'll be able to spend transactions sent to this address, but only using the raw transactions API currently. (You probably want to use addmultisigaddress instead of createmultisig if you're actually going to use the address.)
