Mod note: Topic converted to self-moderated. This is a special case -- I don't normally do this. Posts before this point must not be deleted.

When the forum was compromised, I said that personal info might have been released only to be safe. There's no evidence that forum data has ever actually been leaked, and I doubt that it has been. Your spam is almost certainly caused by something else.
2984  Other / Meta / Re: How can we currently tell if a post has been edited? on: February 21, 2014, 10:36:00 PM
Now, back to the beginning of this post. Theymos, if I gave you $10,000, would you let me have access to the deleted and edited posts for only an hour? If not, how about $20K USD?

No.
2985  Other / Meta / Re: Whats the point of PGP signatures in BitcoinTalk messagess? on: February 21, 2014, 10:34:46 PM
One possible solution would be to implement off-site Javascript code like Blockchain.info that would pull down an encrypted version of someone's private pgp key that they could decrypt with a known password. They could then use it plus their recipient's public key to encrypt their message/PM and send that back to the server which stores it. I don't even know the beginning of how to write code for something like this, but it should be doable in node.js I'd imagine. All the same things could also be done, like emailing a backup of the key as a .json file, also encrypted with their "password". I'd also recommend that, however they do this they make or allow the password to obviously be different from the forum login/password.

JavaScript crypto is mostly useless because the server can change the JavaScript at any time to steal your password unless your browser stops this somehow, which is very unusual.

Can these posts be removed while we wait for you to ban them if they do keep posting or should we leave them up for you to see?

Delete them. I can see deleted posts.
2987  Other / Meta / Re: Active Mining - New Moderated Thread - Mods please come back on: February 20, 2014, 06:18:32 PM
If you ask someone to leave your topic and they keep posting, they will be banned. PM me in such cases.
2988  Other / Meta / Re: Questions to theymos about the $1,000,000 forum software project on: February 20, 2014, 12:21:28 AM
Yesterday it happened due to a SMF bug triggered when too many people access the site at one time under certain conditions. I fixed that bug. A few days ago it happened when I added a feature that required me to keep the messages table locked for longer than I expected. (The change is that all edits are now logged, whereas previously they were only sometimes recorded in DB backups.)

There's a warning on selfmod topics, anyone scamming should pretty quickly get red trust if you post about it in Scam Accusations, and I can quickly recover any deleted posts if necessary. I don't see how it significantly helps scammers.

No Bitcoin BTCatsignal?  Cheesy How did you request he send the forums funds back before? Just PM or email?

Email.
2991  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Obligatory I'm not dead or running post on: February 16, 2014, 06:22:17 PM
I don't have any special way of contacting him. I don't know anything about his current status.
2992  Other / Meta / Re: Who is the owner of this site on: February 16, 2014, 03:35:53 PM
equinox9 offered to buy the forum for 10,000. LOL.
2993  Other / Meta / Re: Problems with new member account on: February 16, 2014, 03:24:21 PM
Fixed.
2994  Economy / Auctions / Re: Advertise on this forum - Round 112 on: February 16, 2014, 12:54:16 AM
sminers can bid up to a total of 10 BTC.
2995  Other / Meta / Re: Forum Unstable? Connection Problems. on: February 15, 2014, 10:52:42 PM
I needed to lock the messages table for a few minutes. It should be OK now.

This transaction doesn't significantly affect taxes AFAIK. By "selling" bitcoins in this way, a lot of USD income was made via capital gains, but it immediately became an expense. The net income is zero for this transaction. Appropriate taxes (determined by a professional) will be paid, of course.
2997  Economy / Auctions / Advertise on this forum - Round 112 on: February 15, 2014, 06:00:10 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.

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 frequently get 1-2 extra days, but this is random and definitely not guaranteed.)

Stats

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 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.

theymos, If a Local Veterinarians office in my town were to setup a Bitcoin Account for Helping animals in need would you run an ad for them for free for a small period of time?  All information could be verified by you beforehand.

would love to hear your position on this.

I very rarely give away slots.

You're too new, sorry. PM me next time and I'll give you an address where you can deposit BTC in advance for bids.
2999  Other / Meta / Re: PM rate limiting on: February 13, 2014, 10:52:31 PM
Are they running into the PMs per hour limit or the 360-second limit?

(The 360-second limit is reduced if you whitelist them, BTW.)
3000  Other / Meta / Re: I see cex.io referrals in the signatures have been removed on: February 13, 2014, 10:50:42 PM
That's probably caused by an ad blocker.
