The Russian section needs to do its part in removing spam. You can't expect global moderators who can't even speak Russian to handle all of this. Some moderator will probably have to be chosen, even if he isn't perfect.

When it will be the moderator, he will have access to IP users.

Only administrators have access to user IPs.
902  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: How does the protocol broadcast hidden services? on: March 15, 2015, 12:08:33 AM
so the client in the TOR-network can itself discover peers when connected to the TOR (with -onlynet=tor) with the above externalip parameter("-externalip=___.onion")?

#EDIT: in tor-talk mailing list i read a talk (from Alex Biryukov and Ivan Pustogarov) about this and it say without .onion id in .config there is no chance for the client to advertise to other peer.. 

By "-externalip=___.onion", I mean that you have to replace ___.onion with a hidden service address that you already set up with Tor. If you also have listen=1 set, Bitcoin will then advertise your hidden service to the network automatically.

If you don't do this, then Bitcoin will still work through Tor, and you might automatically make outgoing connections to hidden services, but you won't get any incoming connections. Bitcoin doesn't set up a hidden service for itself automatically.
903  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: How does the protocol broadcast hidden services? on: March 14, 2015, 07:16:12 PM
They're encoded as special IPv6 addresses and then passed around normally. IPv6-encoded hidden service addresses start with the prefix FD87:D87E:EB43. If you run Bitcoin through Tor with -externalip=___.onion and -listen=1, you should eventually get incoming connections.
904  Other / New forum software / Re: Signature changes on: March 11, 2015, 07:50:32 PM
Yeah, there should probably be an "ignore signature" button near each signature. I've thought about doing this with SMF, but I don't know how I would structure the HTML so that the ignore button is non-intrusive and doesn't mess up everyone's signature.

The ignore data could be used to auto-ignore signatures that are commonly ignored (as an option). Maybe using Bayesian filtering.
905  Other / Meta / Re: What did theymos do with 200K? on: March 10, 2015, 01:07:58 AM
Jesus Christ that is 50% over budget!
I seriously hope this dorum is going to be slick or it is a 1.5 Million not well spend.

When I first contacted Slickage, I stated my budget as $1.5 million. They estimated that only $1 million would be necessary. But the requirements changed in various ways, and (as always) various unexpected issues cropped up.

The forum must meet your and almost everyone's expectation then. That's quite a large sum of money.
Do you know exactly how many developers are working on the forum?

I expect that (especially after all this time) most people will be disappointed when the switchover happens because there won't be any major feature improvements over the current forum. My huge list of requirements will be met, but there's nothing groundbreaking in there. Building something (a little more than) feature-equal to SMF (which has been in development for over 10 years) isn't easy. But the new forum software is much more extensible and secure, so any future enhancements should be much easier to do.

There are 4 full-time programmers working on it, plus some additional outside contractors. You might be surprised by the cost if you've never looked into this sort of thing before, but it's actually pretty standard for a group of this size.

And if they can be trusted 110%?
They could easily build in backdoors of which we would only found out about if things already were to go south.

The code is public.

1.5 million is absolute madness. I bet huge corporations don't even pay that much for their website. Also the slickage twitter had only 75 followers as someone else said. I hope I can trust you guys on this one but a forum for 1.5 million when there are free alternatives is quite large...

Huge corporations pay way more for this sort of thing. This isn't just any website. It's a very large and complicated computer program.

Will that software be used only on bitcointalk.org? Or will it be available for other forums either as open-source or paid licences?

It'll be free and open source. MIT license. (Much of the code is already public on github.)
906  Other / Meta / Re: What did theymos do with 200K? on: March 09, 2015, 07:57:00 PM
Yeah, that's Slickage's $100k monthly fee. The amounts aren't exact, though. I send approximately the correct amount to an intermediate wallet of my own, and then it gets sent to Slickage via Coinbase.

The total cost will probably be around $1.5 million, which is more than I'd hoped, though not entirely unexpected.

908  Economy / Auctions / Advertise on this forum - Round 146 on: March 08, 2015, 03:00:55 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. Ads must appear 3 or fewer lines tall in my browser (Firefox, 900px 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:
https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adstats

Info about the current ad slots:
https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adinfo

Ad blocking

Hero/Legendary 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 stats 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.

Designing ads

Make sure that your ads look good when you download and edit this test page:
https://bitcointalk.org/ad_test.html
Also read the comments in that file.

I will send you more detailed styling rules if you win slots in this auction (or upon request).

Auction rules

You must be at least a Jr Member to bid. If you are not a Jr Member and you really want to bid, you should PM me first. Tell me in the PM what you're going to advertise. You might be required to pay some amount in advance. Everyone else: Please quickly PM newbies who try to bid here to warn them against impersonation scammers.

Post your bids in this thread. Prices must be stated in BTC per slot. You must state the maximum number of slots you want. When the auction ends, the highest bidders will have their slots filled until all eight slots are filled.

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.

I reserve the right to reject bids, even days after the bid is made.

You must pay for your slots within 24 hours of receiving the payment address. Otherwise your slots may be sold to someone else, and I might even give you a negative trust rating. I will send you the payment information via forum PM from this account ("theymos", user ID 35) after announcing the auction results in this thread.

Right.

915  Other / Meta / Re: Who created this forum??? on: February 28, 2015, 06:18:51 AM
The story of how I became head admin is actually pretty boring. Moderators were needed, so I was made a global moderator. Then admins were needed, so I was made an admin. Then over time the other admins slowly lost interest and resigned until I was the only one left. I guess most of the people who were around here to see this have more-or-less left the community now. That's a bit sad.

It's not entirely clear, but for simplicity I usually say that I became head admin at the beginning of 2011, a little over a year after the forum was created.

The forum was originally located at bitcoin.org/smf, then forum.bitcoin.org (hence the redirect), and finally bitcointalk.org. Fun fact: The name "bitcointalk" was invented by Jeff Garzik, and he's the one who bought the domain.
916  Other / Meta / Re: Mycelium getting its own sub-forum any time soon? on: February 28, 2015, 01:05:18 AM

917  Other / Meta / Re: Deleted Posts?! on: February 26, 2015, 10:26:34 PM
Why should the posts be restored? Is there likely to be any important info there?

I haven't fixed the issue where if I restore a whole topic like this, any posts deleted by their authors in that topic will also be restored. This could annoy some people.
918  Other / Meta / Re: Where can you dispute deleted posts? on: February 26, 2015, 03:55:08 AM
Undeleted. In some other topics, that post might've been considered off-topic, but in context it'd be overly strict to delete all posts like that.
