Why doesn't this image work then? It's a GIF hosted on Imgur.


It's too big. The limit is 2.5 MB
2802  Other / Meta / Re: Ironic if this image don't load to show image proxy sucks? on: June 05, 2014, 10:26:04 PM


Why does this fail?

That was due to an issue with the BBcode escaping of URLs. I fixed it.
2803  Other / Meta / Re: Ironic if this image don't load to show image proxy sucks? on: June 05, 2014, 06:07:07 PM
That happens when the server hosting the image is too slow. Use something faster like imgur.

One problem I have with the image proxy is how it breaks images without an extension. If an image is served with the right MIME type, such as image/png, it should be proxied even if it has no extension or the wrong extension. Extensions are a very bad way to describe file types over the Internet. MIME types exist for a reason...

It doesn't rely on extensions. Example:

I just want to know:  was there any changes done to the forum to block links from external pages to open in a main window of those pages?

I don't think so.

Maybe it's because the forum uses https?

doublec's account was stolen, but I restored it to the proper owner.
2806  Other / Meta / Re: Selling/Purchasing account on: June 03, 2014, 06:55:47 PM
Is there any way to provide protection for the buyer, or is this pretty much a situation of "buyer beware"?

Buyer beware. The original owner can probably always regain the account by providing proof that he was the original owner. I won't do this if I know that the account was sold, of course, but I'm not going to waste any time researching this.

http://s16.postimg.org/676tajnxf/image.jpg is not an image, despite the name. It's an HTML page.

The image proxy is not often wrong. If it says "invalid image", then your image is probably invalid.

To be honest, I'm a bit surprised I'm not on that list from all the lurking. Any chance you could check my profile for this bit of information?

You've read 5194 unique topics. To get into the top 200, you need ~8500.

It'd be kind of cool to make this stat available all the time, but it'd immediately become worthless because it's so easy to artificially inflate...

Here are the users who have visited the greatest number of distinct topics (in descending order). malevolent has visited about 50,000, while Phinnaeus Gage has visited about 15,000. (The forum keeps track of the last post you've read in every topic that you've visited, which allows me to figure this out.)

Happened to me, too. Reported a guy for spamming all over the place. I guess they're just unhanded reports? That makes sense, since they're bombarded with reports everyday.

Unhandled reports don't count toward your accuracy score. Your bad report was on this post, which is fine:

I don't release IPs except to police, but I can check whether two users are likely to be the same if one of them looks suspicious. PM me the details.
2812  Other / Meta / Re: Why the name Bitcointalk.org? on: May 30, 2014, 10:53:05 AM
Bitcoin.com  had been registered by mark karpeles long before the starting of btc, and this website was started by theymos and this was the only good domain available

bitcoin.com existed before the Bitcoin software/currency was created. It was owned by an unrelated company. bitcoin.org (and bitcoins.org and bitcoin.net) was registered by Satoshi for Bitcoin.

I didn't even know about Bitcoin when this forum was first created!

I believe U chose the name and it is inspired by WebHostingTalk, the largest web hosting discussion forum on the internet.
Ok got it, and my guess would be Atlas   Tongue

Nope.

Hmm... May be some checkpoints? Let's say we have bootstrap.dat & all index files up to the block on May,1,2014
And the client has hardcoded hash of this data.
So, new user have to download bootstrap&indexes, check hash and... do not verify all signatures from the beginning of bitcoin era

Bitcoin Core already skips signature verification on blocks before the latest checkpoint.

I find it interesting that after the rate change, the prices on this bond dropped to a point that the actual return is roughly at 7% again.  Cheesy Definitely a steal, IMO.

I was thinking the same thing. 

yeah very odd. i have been making reasonable time in paying people who want to sell at 1 btc. not sure why the panic selling. great deal for you guys.

hell, i might start buying some back Smiley
2815  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Goat owe me 3740.35 BTC on: May 30, 2014, 07:06:46 AM
Here are some posts related to TYGRR.BOND-P that Goat deleted for some reason...

i have said before if someone wants to sell i will buy at 1. they just need to let me know how much and give me a reasonable amount of time to get the funds to glbse.

thanks

Has this been revoked?

no

pirate is lowering his rates on some accounts (looks like bitcoin price increase finally cought him). Are your rates staying at 6.8%?

I don't know, i just found out myself. I'm not sure what I will get from Pirate. I will adjust as I said in the thread if the rates do get lowered.

There was a set rule forthis.

Thanks.

If your account is applied "BTC 25,000 + 5%," as would remain for TYGRR.BOND-P? This should be clear as soon as possible.

I just woke up and have not read the thread/contract but I think it will change to 4.85%
2816  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: (non-ultimate) blockchain compression? on: May 30, 2014, 05:56:43 AM
blocks/blk*.dat could probably benefit from some sort of compression. These files are reasonably compressible and very large, but they're not accessed very frequently. It might also be good to compress blocks before sending them to peers, especially when they're downloading many blocks. The other files are already compressed about as well as they can be without hurting performance, or small enough that it doesn't matter.
2817  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Goat owe me 3740.35 BTC on: May 30, 2014, 05:15:18 AM
Verified:

best would be to send me the bonds now then i pay for them once i pay out the dividends on Tuesday.

let me know when you have sent them and send me a btc address for the coins.

thanks

Chaang-Noi  Smiley
Ok, I just sent you 427 shares of TYGRR.BOND-P.  To be redeemed for 427*(whatever the payout rate is next Monday).  Please verify you received the bonds Smiley

i see them, Tuesdays are a crazy day for me and the next day im on a flight to Thailand for like 40 plus hours sooo... if i forget just remind me and i will send. best to remind me Monday and Tuesday just in case lol.

thanks mate.

Can you please unlock the PND thread, it was unjustly locked for a situation that wasn't properly instigated.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=568529.0

The OP was paying people who posted their addresses in the thread. This violates the rule:

Specifically, you are not allowed to give people any incentive to post insubstantial posts in your threads.

I don't care why they were paying people.
2819  Other / Meta / Re: Why the name Bitcointalk.org? on: May 30, 2014, 12:07:14 AM
The forum was originally located at bitcoin.org/smf, then later forum.bitcoin.org, then finally bitcointalk.org. IIRC, Satoshi left before the forum was moved from bitcoin.org/smf. The name "BitcoinTalk" was not invented by Satoshi, Sirius, Gavin, justmoon, or myself. I wonder if anyone here can guess who came up with the name? Smiley
2820  Other / Meta / Re: Accuracy down to 98% on: May 29, 2014, 05:57:38 AM
Here are some updated stats:

MembergroupAverage accuracy
(all)60%
Newbie51%
Jr. Member52%
Member54%
Full Member59%
Sr. Member63%
Hero Member73%
Staff88%

In all, there have been 27,689 good reports, 8129 bad reports, and 1067 unhandled reports.

I think that this is all pretty good! Any accuracy percentage above ~25% is probably fine.
