941  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: When Schnorr will be added? on: September 20, 2018, 01:26:28 AM
There's certainly a proposal.  You can read the BIP here and the relevant part of the roadmap here.  Even small changes take time to go through the peer-review process and this one is actually a fairly big change, so I don't believe there is a fixed date for release or anything like that.  

That draft BIP is only for the details of the signature algorithm itself, since there is no standardized way to do Schnorr signatures. It's the equivalent of the SEC 1&2 standards which specify how to perform the ECDSA signing currently used in Bitcoin. That BIP needs more time for review before it is finalized, and then a separate BIP will be needed for actually integrating it into Bitcoin. I'm not following its progress too closely, but I wouldn't expect it this year.

What DooMAD said, Schnorr is at least as big of a change as SegWit, and we all know how easy and smooth of an upgrade that was...

It's far simpler than SegWit, there's even less reason for controversy around it, and it won't be done using the BIP9 process which caused SegWit's unnecessary delays. I could see the Schnorr softfork completing next year.

How the code is currently written makes copper members equal to either whitelisted newbies or Members, both of which bypass ignore-newbie-pms IIRC. If it becomes a problem, I could change it, but for now: if it's spam, just report it and know that they wasted $10 spamming you.

That's "24-hour periods from now", not calendar days.

There was a bug for the last ~7 hours which prevented all newbie posts, so that's going to make a big dent in the stats.

Strange thing. Was this an attack on the forum?

Nah, I apparently fat-fingered a configuration file just before going to sleep...

I suspect that it won't be a major issue because they'll be losing their ~10 dollars every time they get banned. It won't be profitable, hopefully. If it seems to be a major source of spam in a few months, I'd reconsider.
949  Other / Meta / Re: Newbies can't make posts? on: September 19, 2018, 06:49:38 PM
Damn it...

It's fixed now.
950  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Core 0.16.3 Released on: September 19, 2018, 03:28:59 AM
how can a transaction have a duplicate input? can you give an example also point us to its PR on github?

Such a transaction is invalid, so you won't find any examples in the block chain. But Bitcoin Core crashes upon detecting its invalidness in a valid-PoW block (not when the transaction is free-floating). The crash is caused by an optimization which had incorrect assumptions; the fix simply disables the optimization, changing a false to a true.
951  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh on: September 19, 2018, 02:29:53 AM
The "#MeToo" stuff is often guilty-until-proven-innocent, which I absolutely hate, but the accuser in this case apparently has some years-old records of the accusation. It may be a stronger case than usual, though it still has plenty of the guilty-until-proven-innocent smell, and CoinCube brings up a lot of interesting points that I hadn't heard in the media coverage of this.

Whether it's true or not, I wouldn't be surprised. Kavanaugh has been groomed by the Federalist Society for decades, so the Democrats could've easily set up the accuser's corroborating records long in advance. I really wouldn't put it past them. But I also wouldn't put it past Kavanaugh to sexually assault someone; it sounds like he was part of a disgusting rich-kids culture where that kind of thing could easily happen.

It was politically a smart move by the democrats to delay the announcement until now. If the Republicans force through the nomination, then the Democrats can use that as "Republicans hate women!" in the election. If they stop it, then that's a win for the democrats in itself.

Personally, I hope that Kavanaugh gets replaced by Amy Coney Barrett, though that's probably unlikely.
952  Other / Meta / Re: Copper membership resent statistic/list? on: September 18, 2018, 10:50:15 PM
The member search page only returns a maximum number of results. Currently there are 3145 copper members. Maybe I'll compile stats over time later. For now, you could search the Bitcoin block chain for transactions of the copper-member amount.
953  Bitcoin / Important Announcements / DoS in Bitcoin Core: update required on: September 18, 2018, 09:47:06 PM
Important update: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5034070.0

If you are currently running Bitcoin Core, then you must upgrade to 0.16.3 as soon as possible. You can download it from bitcoin.org or bitcoincore.org or via BitTorrent, and as always, make sure that you verify the download.

If you only occasionally run Bitcoin Core, then it is less urgent, though it would be best to upgrade as soon as convenient.

A bug was found which allows anyone capable of mining a sufficient-PoW block to crash Bitcoin Core nodes running versions 0.14.0 to 0.16.2. Stored funds are not at risk.

Since most altcoins are based on Bitcoin Core, I would guess that many of them are also affected, though I don't have any specific info on that at this time. Also, Core derivatives such as Knots are affected and have their own updates.

New stat: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;stats=topsendban

Note that only "autobans" count. ("Autobans" are not actually automatic, but are a subset of bans done using the quick-ban tools. Most mods can only do autobans.)
955  Other / Meta / Re: Captcha without javascript on: September 17, 2018, 05:30:40 PM
Where are you seeing that, on the cloudflare page?

I remember the JS-less version from recaptcha v1 (retired), but I didn't think that v2 supported that. Maybe it's new.
956  Other / Meta / Re: Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements on: September 17, 2018, 11:28:35 AM
I think this decision does not fit the rule of law.

957  Other / Meta / Re: Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements on: September 17, 2018, 08:48:35 AM
As a Legendary, can I pay the fee and to be a Copper member?

You can, but there isn't much point in doing so.
958  Other / Meta / Re: Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements on: September 17, 2018, 07:19:25 AM
Are these restrictions for those who have been demoted? "newbie wear sigature"[1]
[1] https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4796382.msg43272911#msg43272911

I forgot to wipe non-demoted newbies. Fixed, thanks.

Also, I just realized that I did wipe 0-merit Jr Members who were also copper members. I undid that.

- Reduced-accuracy link filtering
I translated this topic, but I didn't understand this part correctly, any help?

Newbies are subject to additional filtering which has a higher rate of false positives.

I want to add! Cryptocurrency is made for decentralization and the forum should be the same, and with your new rules you make your forum centralized!!!

Oh, it's very decentralized. It uses the VWYF algorithm (now with added blockchain™) to ensure complete decentralization. How it works is very simple: if you don't like it, go make your own forum.

Manafort's guilty plea surprised me a lot. I hope at some point we get all of the details behind this.

Not after this. Trump isn't gonna pardon a snitch.

Agreed.
