2641  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: PHP - Bidcoind check for new transactions. on: September 06, 2014, 04:21:19 PM
I could make the "listtransactions" loop scalable by using the "[count=10] [from=0]" parameters.

listtransactions loops through all wallet transactions (internally, in the implementation) no matter what arguments you give it.
2642  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: PHP - Bidcoind check for new transactions. on: September 06, 2014, 03:34:59 PM
Doesn't anyone know if new transactions are added to the list at random places.
Or are they always added on top.

Transactions aren't reordered within a single wallet, and new transactions are always added to the top, though transactions could be reordered if you move keys between wallets or use -zapwallettxes.

I want to have a scalable way of getting all the new "receive" transactions.

listtransactions loops through every transaction in your wallet, so it isn't very fast or scalable. It's better to use one of these:
- getreceivedbyaccount or getreceivedbyaddress
- -walletnotify + gettransaction
- listsinceblock

Keep in mind that the chain can reorg, which can cause confirmed transactions to have a different number of confirmations or even become invalid. You need to handle this, especially if you use walletnotify or listsinceblock. I know that they're limited and a bit confusing, but I usually recommend bitcoind accounts for small- to medium-size sites because it's very easy to do things correctly with them.

I'll add some more logging and see if I can pinpoint the problem. It's not a huge issue, but this error is really weird because it seems to occur when your browser sends a cookie that the forum has never set.

I just got this. This happened when i opened a thread that i had created in one tab then logged in to my account in another tab. After that i switched back refreshed the thread tab and tried to edit it. Wouldn't let me.

That's a different error than what I'm talking about.
2644  Other / Meta / Re: Your session is invalid. Reload this page. on: September 06, 2014, 04:51:23 AM
What browsers are you guys using?

Yup, happened with me a couple of times too.

Did you also get it when you tried to do something while you were logged off?
2645  Other / Meta / Your session is invalid. Reload this page. on: September 06, 2014, 02:51:46 AM
Has anyone here seen this error?
Your session is invalid. Reload this page.
I see in the logs that it happens pretty frequently, but I feel like it should never happen if you have a sane browser. I'm thinking that it may just be strange bots that get that error.
2646  Other / Meta / Re: theymos met personally Satoshi ? on: September 05, 2014, 04:06:00 AM
No, I haven't. I doubt that anyone in the Bitcoin ecosystem has knowingly met him in person. My impression has always been that he's a shy individual who created Bitcoin mainly because he found the project very interesting, not to become rich or famous. While he understood the need for a solid community, I doubt that he had (or has) much interest in participating in the Bitcoin community except to discuss the Bitcoin technology. And while he probably still cares about Bitcoin, I very much doubt that he has any desire to exert unusual control over Bitcoin's future, either secretly or publicly.

(In fact, there are very few Bitcoiners who have met me personally. None of the moderators or core devs have. So a meeting between Satoshi and myself would be especially unlikely.)

There were some evidences that told that mark had registered the domain years before when bitcoin was launched.

Mark never had anything to do with, and never had anything to do with Satoshi.
2647  Other / Meta / Re: Accuracy email notification of board? on: September 03, 2014, 10:49:36 PM
The emails are probably ending up in your spam folder. The forum's email tends to be automatically identified as spam.
2648  Other / Meta / Re: Has my Accuracy got stuck ? on: September 03, 2014, 10:07:39 PM
Lets assume 97.0000% of these are correct, thats 1843 correct and 57 not. In order to reach 97.5% (I assume thats when 98% will be shown) he would have to make 2223 total correct reports vs 57 bad. Thats 380 good reports without fail.

Accuracy is always rounded down IIRC, so it'll take even longer.

People shouldn't worry about accuracy much, and certainly not single percentage points.
2649  Other / Meta / Re: @theymos: How does this trust score work, then? on: September 03, 2014, 02:56:26 AM
The system views negative ratings as saying, "this user scammed me and no one should trust him ever." People don't need to view negative ratings this way, and I don't think that it's dishonest to give someone negative trust even if you weren't scammed, but that's how the system views it. There probably should be a neutral or less strong negative rating type, but such a thing doesn't exist now. The best thing you can do at the moment to achieve that sort of effect is create another account that isn't trusted by anyone and use that.

With this in mind, I think that it is correct for someone to be labeled as high-risk if they receive many positive ratings for only one month and then they start getting scam accusations. This pattern is very common for scammers: build up your reputation with a few good trades and then start scamming people.
2650  Other / Meta / Re: Are you able to find out who has you in their trust list? on: September 03, 2014, 02:41:10 AM
There's no easy way to see who's trusting a certain user, but it's possible to collect that info by adding every user to your trust list and then looking at the tree produced. The forum won't let you add a ridiculous number of users (and at some point it may time out when trying to display the tree, which will be difficult for you to fix), so you'd have to do it in batches.
2651  Economy / Auctions / Advertise on this forum - Round 131 on: September 02, 2014, 04:44:16 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.)


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. I will send you the payment information via forum PM from this account ("theymos", user ID 35). You might receive false payment information from scammers pretending to be me. They might even have somewhat similar usernames. Be careful.

2653  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Beastlymac - scammed me for 3.1 btc - gridseeds group buy on: September 01, 2014, 05:18:29 AM
theymos also has noticed this scam and has removed him from default trust.

I don't know anything about this case. I take no position either way.

I added Beastlymac to my trust list some time ago because his sent ratings seemed non-controversial and I wanted some of them to be visible by default. Now some of his ratings are apparently controversial, so I removed him. If someone else in the default trust list wants to trust him, that'd be OK, but I haven't done business with Beastlymac, and I don't know much about him, so I'm not going to keep him in my personal trust list.
2654  Other / Meta / Re: This TRUST thingy is for the birds. I'm now high risk and a Racist. on: August 29, 2014, 12:27:37 AM
I'm confused how you see what you posted in the image shown, when you are using default trust, and bick is not in default trust or the extended network based on it.

His trust depth is set to 3 instead of the default 2.

I'm very sad to hear about his death. Both his work and his perseverance in the face of his illness are incredibly inspiring. The world is much poorer with him gone. Hopefully he will be able to return someday.

I have a SHA1 thumbprint for a 7/7/2014 certificate verified by Rapid SSL of the following:

Is this correct? I see references to a different cert in this thread. Sorry for the necro, I just thought it might be good to reference why I was posting rather than doing a new thread about it.

Does the thumbprint change if cert is renewed??

2658  Other / Meta / Re: Any reason why the Hardware Section of this forum isn't being indexed on Google? on: August 28, 2014, 11:49:30 PM
You're probably looking at a link that jumps directly to a message in a topic. Such links are marked noindex because they would confuse search engines.
2659  Other / Meta / Ads in posts on: August 21, 2014, 09:08:07 AM
It occurred to me that I should write a little about this in case anyone's wondering about what dogie's doing, or why other people are getting banned for somewhat similar activity:

Ads are typically not allowed in posts (outside of the signature area) because they are annoying and off-topic. It is especially disallowed to put ads or signatures at the bottom of all of your posts. Except for traditional valedictions, which are tolerated but discouraged, signatures are for the signature area only.

However, if you are using the forum as a publishing platform to host something really substantial and useful, selling ads in that substantial work is allowed. To be eligible for this, your post must be in a topic that you started, and your post must be substantial and long enough to make the ad seem entirely insignificant. If in doubt, ask me.

You have a whole section now, so you can create new topics for this sort of thing! Smiley

I recommend an altcoin board.
