Looks like it can be disabled as I do not show up on the list. You neither btw. Its probably because I disabled "Show others your online status?"

Right.
943  Other / Meta / Re: Wondering who got access to this and the content on: March 06, 2015, 02:42:12 PM
I think that UID 2 was an account called "satoshin" that Satoshi never actually used.

So there's general agreement on Dbshck? Please reply on English.

There is another page I am trying to find that shows you a list of what topics online users are looking at, I cannot find it right now though.

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.
948  Other / Meta / Re: Mycelium getting its own sub-forum any time soon? on: February 28, 2015, 01:05:18 AM
The server part of it is apparently not open source, so I probably won't create a section for it.
949  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.
950  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.

Note the addition of this new rule:
Quote
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.

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. You might receive false payment information from scammers pretending to be me. They might even have somewhat similar usernames. Be careful.

Done.
955  Other / New forum software / Re: Why not use Bcrypt? on: February 25, 2015, 03:00:35 PM
The idea that bcrypt is somehow extra strong is AFAIK entirely a myth. bcrypt is based on a fast Blowfish-based hash function comparable to SHA-256 and other cryptographically-secure hash functions. It makes the entire process slow by hashing the password many times. But this is exactly what any decent key derivation function does.

The forum uses sha256crypt (which has an extremely similar interface to bcrypt) with 7500 iterations. If SHA-256 and bcrypt's underlying hash function were exactly the same speed, this would be equivalent to a bcrypt cost of about 13. I prefer SHA-2 because Blowfish (and especially bcrypt's Blowfish-based hash function) are not as widely used or studied.

Off-topic : You have mentioned in that thread about Satoshi's views/words and Mike Hearn mentioned about using HTTPS over HTTP, so will this feature come again - sending to IP via HTTPS protocol?

That's basically what the payment protocol does. You click a link like:
bitcoin:1NXYoJ5xU91Jp83XfVMHwwTUyZFK64BoAD?r=https://www.coinbase.com/r/invalid
And Bitcoin Core negotiates a transaction with the URL at the end via HTTPS. It's very similar to IP transactions.

This is reminiscent of Satoshi's old proposal for strengthening IP transactions, though it relies entirely on HTTPS and doesn't actually use the provided address for verification, so the security is probably better in general but worse in rare cases where the URI was gotten securely but HTTPS isn't secure.
957  Other / Meta / Re: BitCoinTalk hidden pages on: February 23, 2015, 08:49:25 PM
I like old UI, simple and clean. I hope it will be used again.

I also preferred the overall look of the old UI, though it had far fewer features.

That GUI is nowadays called wxBitcoin because it used the wxWidgets GUI framework. After Satoshi left, no one working on Bitcoin wanted to work with wxWidgets, so Wladamir wrote a new GUI using the Qt GUI framework called Bitcoin-Qt.
958  Other / Meta / Re: Stolen account yussuf89 on: February 23, 2015, 07:43:59 PM
I think that marcotheminer should return the account now since it was probably hacked, but everyone should give yussuf89 negative feedback for being unable to stand behind his account's actions unless he pays 50-75% of the loan principle. (This is just my opinion -- I'm not going to try to enforce it.)
959  Other / Meta / Re: BitCoinTalk hidden pages on: February 23, 2015, 12:21:55 PM
The first folder appears to be old files back from when Satoshi was the main administrator here. I believe: https://bitcointalk.org/oldSiteFiles/images/screen3.png is a screenshot of Satoshi's Bitcoin wallet from 2009, showing a payment to an IP address rather than a Bitcoin address, which was a feature included in early versions of Bitcoin Core that was removed for security risks.

An interesting thing about that screenshot is that it must have been made on a different block chain. The dates don't match up with the current block chain.

Let's say I buy a fancy watch from a guy on the street, hot but I didn't know it. The long arm of the law somehow leads to me and the watch. It would be taken from me and I wouldn't get my money back. I have no recourse to go after the guy who sold it to me. He was a complete stranger.

That also doesn't strike me as entirely fair. If nothing can be gotten from the person who actually did the stealing, then the person who lost the stolen item and the person who bought it should somehow split the cost IMO.
