That was created by Logik, to give him/her credit. Wink

Even a thirteen year old knows that censorship is bad:

It's un-American!  

Besides anyone who doesn't like Matthew can just ignore him, that's the whole point right?  Or are we admitting by this action that the ignore feature doesn't work?  If it doesn't work it should be eliminated.  Eliminating the poster is cowardly.  

In America we don't fear people who use words, we converse with them.  I fear no conversation.  Censorship is pure evil and it makes Satoshi weep.  


Perhaps Theymos should step down and let someone else be in charge?  There are plenty of qualified admins who can take over the baton.  Step down Theymos, unless your ego won't let you, it's best for the community.

Other things that would be beneficial to the community include:
   A definition of the forum hierarchy and how decisions are made
   Open public discussions about policies and their implementation
   A posting that includes rules and ban policies
   A privacy policy and a COPPA policy

Hell let's put DiamondCardz in charge for a while.  At 13 he sees the evil of censorship, it's surprising that as a full grown adult the site admin does not.

This site is way too populated to allow this heavy handed arbitrary, non-published, seat of the pants decision making.  This is why, in the real world, we have rules and regulations.  Here in Theymos world it's just easier to hit the ban-hammer.

Oh what power we wield... it's gone to our head.  Theymos must think himself the king of the universe.

Yes, although I don't appreciate the "At 13" kind of stuff. I have a very high IQ compared to my peers, and I go to a selective school.  Wink

In a decentralized and ideal community, age doesn't and shouldn't matter. Hell, if an 8 year old is mature enough to handle it, why shouldn't an 8 year old be a moderator or administrator (theoretically speaking here)?

However, I agree. Censorship isn't good, and it definitely doesn't belong in Bitcoin. You can't pull the "forums are centralized" arguments, because you can take action to make forums more decentralized.

Unban Matthew, theymos: it's the correct thing to do, rather than this complete mess.
This exactly.

Off topic: Go Diamond for admin! Grin

Yeay, devfaucet!
Great site, must vouch for. Always pays out, and is probably the best MyFaucet out there.

PS: They should be adding withdrawals to WhiskChat (link in sig) soon... Wink

IMHO, you don't need a sendmany replacement, as off-the-chain tx's are instant, and require no tx fee (why people use sendmany).

Also, TF: you promised me a free WhiskChat ad on inputs Tongue

That limitation is there so people cannot crash/disrupt the database, as database calls are limited in this fashion.

Yay, tags!

You don't know what you've done. I implemented tags on whiskchat and now EVERYBODY WANTS THEM!

I tried logging into Inputs today, and got this:
Quote from: Inputs.io
Please check your email for an authorization request.
I have never enabled anything of the sort on my account. My other account I use for WhiskChat was not accessible via the webpage but was accessible via the API.

LOL, I was logging in from a different location. Inputs should make this clearer, tho.

Also, you may have seen PHP errors during my server update... Sorry for this.


Haha, the same happens here. Tongue

If a lot of newbies are spam-voting one person, I should be able to set in preferences "Ignore votes from group: Newbies" or something of the sort.

I have not had a good experience with this server.

First, PVP is on so if you want to go and start out by e.g. mining wood, you can't due to players constantly slaughtering you.

Second, there are no griefing protection plugins. As such, my home's now been griefed, destroying work which took time to build.

I suggest to not put time into this server, at least in its current state.
393  Other / Meta / Re: Why are my signature links removed? on: August 20, 2013, 07:38:16 AM
Most link shorteners are filtered due to phishers/malware.

hm, I don't see the reason behind this. there's no difference if I send you a scammy (FORUM WARNING: BE CAREFUL WHEN CLICKING UNKNOWN LINKS!) (FORUM WARNING: BE CAREFUL WHEN CLICKING UNKNOWN LINKS!) bit.ly or a cleartext url.

it's probably safer to use certain shorteners, like (FORUM WARNING: BE CAREFUL WHEN CLICKING UNKNOWN LINKS!) (FORUM WARNING: BE CAREFUL WHEN CLICKING UNKNOWN LINKS!) goo.gl   or smarturl.it (not sure about (FORUM WARNING: BE CAREFUL WHEN CLICKING UNKNOWN LINKS!) (FORUM WARNING: BE CAREFUL WHEN CLICKING UNKNOWN LINKS!) bit.ly) - they use malware/phishing filters.

It seems smart URL is the only one not filtered there. All the other links got the warning. I may look into it Smiley

All the links in your sig are gone.
Also, the forum should make the warning a little more subtle. Tongue

I prefer the "Hidden" option.  It can be seen from the comments in the trust system that when someone gets negative feedback they often give back negative feedback.  The private option would stop the tit-for-tat of -1 votes.

Another option could be to publicly show the votes from each of the member groups.  This way no one can tell who voted for whom and it would help stop people gaming the system using socks.  For example, the following distribution would look a little suspicious:

member123 [+5]
Brand New:   [+10, -0]
Newbie:   [+0, -0]
Jr. Member:   [+0, -0]
Member:   [+0, -0]
Full Member:   [+0, -0]
Sr. Member:   [+0, -0]
Hero Member:   [+0, -5]

I will do this. Not sure how yet but it's definitely something worth implementing.
It's not critical for now as I manually send passwords to people asking for them.

I like this idea the best, opening it will just mean more drama and fake votes from retaliation (disclosure, haven't used it yet).

Add the option to hide votes from one group/user

1. Use the satoshis plugin for withdrawals.

2. I found a bug: mine protected coal ore, and you get infinite satoshis (you can mine the block forever, but it doesn't get broken, but the system registers it as a break)

I wonder how Matthew would feel of he was reading this now.

He's far too self centered to not be reading it daily.

And I'm sure he's laughing his ass off that you guys still buy his bullshit after all he's done.  Y'all getting trolled and don't even know it. Amazes me how dumb smart people can be when you press the right buttons.

Not everyone here is for the person, but for the cause. Banning for trolling is censorship, and against what the community is. How about you give a trolling tag, and ban scammers. There is a reason there is an ignore button, who gives a shit what he says just click ignore.

Edit: I mean come on
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=274749.0
The guy even tried to fuck the entire forum via the admin, no ban, or scammer tag. what the hell is wrong with that picture?

This - if MNW is banned, others are banned.

Division/exclusion by group is good.
Maybe weight +/-1's on rank, so someone can't register a ton of accounts to defraud a user.

(I'd just like to know who's -1'ing me.)
399  Economy / Services / Re: Website Preview: BITADS.NET. Now Pay-Per-Hour! on: August 15, 2013, 02:46:04 PM
Yaaay, new changes! One thing: Let publishers put notes on their adspaces. For example WhiskChat (my site) has ads every 4 minutes. I would like to mention this to advertisers.

Theymos, I don't think you did yourself a favor here.
I am disappointed. And now, for the first time, considering moving on elsewhere.

Ente

Is there another place with active community?

Theymos should listen to the community. Community has donated a lot bitcoins to this forum, though I don't know are those coins used to pay salary to theymos or something.
This.
We (the community) need to know what those BTC are used for.
