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. 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.

Satoshi Nakamoto. Because of some reason, his Bitcointalk account has some problem(that is what I heard) but the place is reserved for him as the community is believing he will come.

Yeah, it's prophesied that one day Satoshi will emerge from the block chain and save us all from the evils of Fiat once and for all. When that day comes, his forum status will change to "online" and we will all revel in the beauty of his 5 platinum coins.

2728  Other / Meta / GoalCoin on: July 15, 2014, 04:22:34 AM
I received a complaint from FIFA regarding GoalCoin's usage of the the FIFA world cup trophy in their topics. I believe that the complaint is legally valid, so I have removed all topics posted by the user goalcoin. While the complaint only specifies one topic, I decided to remove them all because further complaints seem extremely likely otherwise. (All of the topics were filled with the offending image.) Hopefully goalcoin can recreate the topics without using the trademarked images/terms. If any important information was lost in a deleted post, let me know and I'll restore it.

I am opposed to all intellectual property, but it doesn't really make sense to expend resources and expose the forum to additional risk in order to fight intellectual property complaints of this sort. Unfortunately, we'll just have to live with these stupid laws for now. (Trademarks are the least-bad form of intellectual property IMO, but I think that this case demonstrates how they can hurt innovation and destroy value in some cases.)

Here is the complaint:

2729  Other / Meta / Re: It Is Not Against Forum Rules For Users To Post Your Personal Information Here! on: July 15, 2014, 01:00:10 AM
That is the problem. There is no way that the forum could verify every scam accusation, nor should it have to now that there are more appropriate services available for this. Since we can't make exceptions to allow for people to post the personal information of scammers, we have two choices:

1) Remove all posted personal information, like Reddit.
2) Allow everyone to post personal information about anybody.

Bitcoin attracts a lot of scammers, so I would tend to err on safer side of allowing all personal information. Not to mention, if it wasn't posted here, it would just be posted somewhere else. Public information cannot be made unpublic.

Right.

I do feel for innocent victims of doxxing, though. I welcome suggestions on how to improve forum policy in this area. However, forum policy must be consistent, and I'm not going to start deciding who's guilty and who's not (again).

I've been thinking that maybe it would be an improvement to require that dox be posted along with sources for all of the data, and ban dox that doesn't come from a "public source" (government site, news story, Facebook, etc.). This would make casual doxxing more difficult, help readers determine whether the dox is actually accurate, and hamper distribution of info obtained from illegal sources (hacking, etc.). I'm not sure that it would help enough to be worth the trouble, though.
2730  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Passphrase utility on: July 14, 2014, 04:29:26 PM
You seem to think that this generates keys based only on personal info, but that's just the salt used to prevent pre-computation attacks. You also need a strong passphrase.

I wouldn't use this code for large sums of money because it doesn't have much review, but I think that the basic principle is very solid if the user can make a decent passphrase (which is maybe not a good assumption in general).
2731  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What has the Bitcoin Foundation funded? on: July 11, 2014, 02:02:23 AM
They pay 3 full-time Bitcoin Core devs, they've funded work on bitcoin.org, they do various legal/outreach work, etc. They do a decent amount of good stuff, though I always worry that an organization like this will become a dangerous point of centralization someday. It would be better if the 3 full-time devs they're hiring were hired by 3 separate organizations, for example. (But it's better that the Foundation pays them than no one pays them.)
2732  Other / Meta / Trust graph on: July 10, 2014, 05:48:15 AM
I was trying to create a graph of the forum's web of trust with graphviz, but I don't know much about graphviz and I always end up with a big jumbled mess. Anyone else want to give it a try? (I don't need this for anything, but it might be interesting.)

All the core developers who were with Bitcoin at the beginning are starting to leave, this could actually affect the price, especially if the Bitcoin foundation still has the ability to fuck with the network unless the community can create their own fork we all agree on.

What are you talking about? The Foundation is entirely separate from the Bitcoin Core development group. They don't have any power over the network.
