I deleted all of the PMs. There were about 1700 of them.

You should always report spam PMs. You won't be banned for inaccuracy.

That's the trust score. It's not a count of how many people rated someone positively/negatively. Here's how it's calculated.

The links aren't really removed when you do that. Reload the page and you'll see them again.

Ah, wait, I remember this now. I didn't realize that twentyseventy was the OP, my bad. I'll ask theymos to restore this.

He used Tor.
2788  Other / Meta / Re: Does forum account ban = IP ban? on: June 10, 2014, 07:11:47 PM
There are not listed exit nodes made for networks that blocks the connection to Tor networks(this is why they say they are "known" exit nodes). Anyone can make an private exit node and give access to others.

You're talking about bridges, which do not act as exit nodes. The Tor software does not support private exit nodes.

There are also high anonymous proxies that basically gives no clue that you are using a proxy, and there are plenty of them appearing and disappearing day-by-day, so almost useless ban them.

If they're talking to the forum, they'll need an IP address. There are a limited number of IPs (and especially a limited number of /16s), so they'll run out eventually if people keep using these proxies to abuse the forum.
2789  Other / Meta / Re: Does forum account ban = IP ban? on: June 09, 2014, 06:13:41 PM
How expensive is the fee?

Usually less than 0.001 BTC, but it varies.
2790  Other / Meta / Re: Does forum account ban = IP ban? on: June 09, 2014, 05:37:17 PM
IPs are rarely totally banned, but IPs are often marked as suspicious. If you try to register using a suspicious IP, you have to pay a fee. The more suspicious the IP is, the higher the fee.

If you get banned, all of the IPs you've ever used on the forum are marked as suspicious. The entire /16 subnet of each IP also gets a small increase in its suspiciousness score. This makes evading forum bans difficult (or at least expensive).

with Tor these days it is hard to IP ban... I know the site blocks alot of exit nodes, but I am guessing their are heaps that get through as there are more and more each day who join the exit node club!

The forum always marks every Tor exit node as suspicious. You can get a complete list of Tor exit nodes from the Tor directory servers.
2791  Other / Meta / Re: How are all of these accounts getting compromised? on: June 08, 2014, 07:08:46 PM
It seems to usually be people with very weak secret questions/answers. Like "What kind of pet do you have?", which has only very few possible answers.
2792  Economy / Auctions / Advertise on this forum - Round 123 on: June 08, 2014, 08:15:18 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.

1 @ 5

You're too new. PM me first next time.

If my understanding is right, theymos can see it, but it is inconvenience (and so he prefers not to do it that way)...

To elaborate on this, I can access old profile information only by looking at the weekly forum database backups, but the backups are so large that it takes at least an hour to unpack them and get the data into a usable form. So I try very hard to avoid doing this.

It wouldn't be too difficult to add edit history to certain profile fiends, but I feel like this would rarely be useful...
2795  Other / Meta / Re: Securing my forum account on: June 06, 2014, 06:48:24 PM
Wouldn't the most convenient way be to simply have an auction thread where people post their address?
Auction posts can't be deleted, right?

I can see deleted/edited posts, so it doesn't really matter.
2796  Other / Meta / Re: Securing my forum account on: June 06, 2014, 06:00:03 PM
What about the addresses in our profile? Will they suffice and can you see the recent edits or history of them?

2797  Other / Meta / Re: Ironic if this image don't load to show image proxy sucks? on: June 06, 2014, 05:57:08 PM
There's no reason to force readers to download huge images when they load the page. If high resolution is really necessary, you can include a link to the image.
2798  Other / Meta / Re: Is this site affected 1 of the 6 or so new openssl vulnerabilities ? on: June 06, 2014, 05:52:18 PM
The forum's OpenSSL was updated yesterday.

Those only affect systems that are affected by heartbleed. So if openssl has been upgraded from the
affected version there is no issues.

No, it's unrelated to heartbleed
2799  Other / Meta / Re: Securing my forum account on: June 06, 2014, 05:47:48 PM
It's best to include it naturally in a post. But if you can't, you can send a PM to an account that won't delete it (you could use DefaultTrust for this). After you send it, check your outbox and make a note of the PM's ID (visible in the quote URL).

Add it to your signature and the bitcoin address section. Even if the hacker changes it, theymos can check.

I can't conveniently check signature edits.

I think you're supposed to send it to yourself in a PM

I can't conveniently see PMs if all recipients have deleted it.
2800  Other / Meta / Re: Ironic if this image don't load to show image proxy sucks? on: June 06, 2014, 05:14:56 AM
I don't know what's a forum-proxy issue and what's an initial-host issue, but those images are stored on our server which currently only has a 1Mb upload connection. We're looking to improve that in the near future.

Browsers nowadays like to make as many simultaneous requests for images as there are images on the page (this is stupid IMO). So all of your images are downloaded at once via the proxy, but your connection isn't fast enough to deliver everything before the proxy times out after a few seconds. Not being able to serve this much data quickly enough is understandable, but it still causes issues. The problem is that browsers can wait forever for servers to respond, so they're fine with issuing even hundreds of connections at a time, but the forum's server cannot wait. Each proxy connection takes up resources, so it must complete quickly. I'm not really sure how to fix this.
