Can you give a hidden scammer tag to people who reach a certain overall trust score below say -100 automatically, so that massive scammers such as TradeFortress or just people who the community think of as untrustworthy can not delete and edit their posts? This is especially important now that TF is back under the name Free Hugs (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=67058).

There's no global trust rating, so that isn't really possible. I can recover deleted and edited posts in any case, though.

TradeFortress already has a hidden scammer tag.
2842  Other / Meta / Re: width of screen. on: May 21, 2014, 02:39:26 AM
I keep my browser at around 700px wide, and it looks fine for me. It also looks OK on my Android devices. But I agree that the behavior is non-optimal.

Is there any way this wide banner ad could be broken up into "left half" and "right half" - meaning, people who have their browser 1600 pixels wide would see it exactly the same way, but for those of us who really like to leave half our screen for other things (like, say, an editor for taking notes or a terminal shell for doing work) the page compositor could just stack them one atop another?

The way ads are done, that's not really practical. Some ads will actually do that, but it'd be difficult to enforce for all ads.

The ad should probably behave like it's contained within a div with overflow:auto, but doing this seems complicated with our table layout. I haven't yet been able to figure out how to do it. I'll mess with it more later.

If you know how to do it, let me know. But there are some restrictions due to the way ad blockers are bypassed. CSS can be added to any element, and the ad area can be surrounded by any number of additional tags, but the ad area must be balanced. <span><div>ad_area</div></span> is OK, but <span>ad_area<div>...</div></span> is (probably) not. Furthermore, the wrapper around the ad HTML must behave like <span>ad_code</span>. The behavior of the inner HTML and neighboring HTML must not be affected by the wrapper, and the whole ad+wrapper must be inline. (Ads are always inline or inline-block.)

The first CSS class listed in the page's <style> is the class for the real ad area's <tr>. The ad area's <tr> is like the <tr> of a post. There are also some hidden, decoy ad areas and posts. Ads themselves are totally arbitrary HTML, which is why it's important for any wrapper stuff to be very well-behaved.
2843  Other / Meta / Re: Bitcoin Discussion Threads gone? on: May 20, 2014, 04:12:23 PM
Yeah, I was doing some maintenance. Not sure why it caused those topics to apparently disappear, though. Maybe I unintentionally locked that table. Maybe the pagination got screwed up because I was deleting so many topics.
2844  Other / Meta / Re: Top posters [May 16 UPDATE] on: May 20, 2014, 04:08:48 PM
IMO I shouldn't be on the list at all, over half my posts are directs. Forum search seems to be limited so it doesn't show them all, but you can see on the forum stats page (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=stats) I show up as #1 topic starter with almost 3700 topics. Real topics I've started is probably closer to 20-30.

That's not even counting that I used to delete my redirects regularly, and I only leave redirects less than half the time these days. I wonder how many topics I've moved total.

I deleted all old redirection topics. (You've moved 7476 topics in total.)
2845  Economy / Auctions / Advertise on this forum - Round 121 on: May 18, 2014, 05:02:03 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 (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.)

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.

2849  Other / Meta / Re: Something wrong with the forum website? on: May 15, 2014, 04:00:11 PM
Images are showing fine for me in Firefox. Its the styles that are not working for. Refreshed, restarted browser, cookies, whatever. No luck. But perfect on Safari.

What happens when you visit the stylesheet directly? https://bitcointalk.org/Themes/custom1/style.css
2850  Other / Meta / Re: Image proxy? on: May 15, 2014, 03:57:00 PM

That resizes images client-side, so it won't help with image proxy limits.
2851  Other / Meta / Re: Something wrong with the forum website? on: May 15, 2014, 03:50:20 AM
Yeah, the style sheets and images just fail to load sometimes. I complained about it a while ago but nothing was ever done about it. Sad

Do you still have problems with that? I need to force-refresh the main page three times in quick succession before the server starts blocking me. Do you have no caching at all?
2852  Other / Meta / Re: Removing legacy scammer tags on: May 13, 2014, 07:03:44 PM
I might remove OldScammerTag from DefaultTrust at some point, though. I don't have time to look into cases like Aahzman's in detail, so I don't want to keep saying that he's guilty forever.
2853  Other / Meta / Re: Removing legacy scammer tags on: May 13, 2014, 06:58:47 PM
It would be nice if some account on the default trust list could flag each of the accounts with negative trust of "Had a forum SCAMMER tag".

This account would have to be automated, since it would be a lot of work.

Done.
2854  Other / Meta / Re: Bug Report: autocompletion in "To:" field of Private messages on: May 13, 2014, 05:51:36 PM
You can get that error if you're sending HTTP requests too quickly. Each character typed generates a request, but this shouldn't be enough to trigger rate-limiting unless you're also doing many additional requests elsewhere. Maybe it could happen if your browser is doing prefetching, or if it isn't caching images properly.
2855  Other / Meta / Re: You must be at least a Jr. Member to vote in polls on: May 13, 2014, 04:22:26 AM
This came in so suddenly. At least will there be an option to make a poll open to everyone in the future?

Why would you want to allow polls that can be easily manipulated?
2856  Other / Meta / You must be at least a Jr. Member to vote in polls on: May 13, 2014, 03:39:57 AM
Previously, anyone could vote in polls. Now you must be at least a Jr. Member. This should make vote manipulation more difficult, though you should still not rely on forum polls for real accuracy.
2857  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Contingency plans on: May 11, 2014, 11:56:27 PM
I think hardening the alert system is worth doing.  If there was a break to the alert system, then it makes communication with nodes harder.

The Contingency Plans page is is somewhat out of date. The alert system can now be deactivated by sending a special alert message. So in the worst-case scenario where ECDSA or SHA-256 is broken and the alert key is compromised, the alert message will quickly be changed to say, "URGENT: Alert key compromised, upgrade required," and then no more alerts will be possible.
2858  Other / Meta / Re: Removing legacy scammer tags on: May 10, 2014, 04:37:07 PM
I'm assuming there is no way for users to retain their scammer tag if they want to keep it? Sad

No.
2859  Other / Meta / Removing legacy scammer tags on: May 10, 2014, 04:12:53 PM
Before the trust system was added, I would manually add a SCAMMER tag to the accounts of people who were proven scammers, likely alts of scammers, and sometimes to hacked accounts (if they were being used for scamming). Because the trust system now exists, I will be removing all old scammer tags in about 7 days. If you still don't trust any of these people, you should manually give them negative trust.

The scammer tag also prevents people from deleting or editing their posts. If you suspect that any of these people will start deleting posts, you should make a note of their post count. I can restore any deleted or edited post if necessary.

Here's the list of people with scammer tags currently. People in bold will retain a hidden scammer tag so that they cannot delete their posts.
