If it goes through that line it looks bad..
If not, it looks good..

I think BTC can do about anything pricewise so I won't rule out new all time highs this year but I wouldn't count on it..
Holding in close to 10K would have me very happy for a while.. No need for another moon so soon IMO..

Let's decentralize trust and reduce abuse by making all default trusted users hand picked by theymos, with no possibility of disagreement!
Yeah let's do it! It would be fun.

Decentralize trust = Picked buy theymos  
Theory of everything

The power is in your hands..
Simply set your DT depth to 1 instead of 2 and mission accomplished..

I made a post here explaining a bit about how to better formulate English sentences to a noob that looked like he was trying..

Actually I think the thread was in beginners and help when I started making my reply, which I thought was good, but by time I finished my reply I think it was moved to meta, which kinda made the thread inappropriate, and bashing ensued..

* Improve your English and your writing quality. A post full of grammar and spelling mistakes will get less Merit, even if itís a good one.

It actually does look like you are paying a lot of attention to your capitalization and punctuation, trying hard, but a bit overboard with the commas..
You have some weird wording yet too like..
"These advices are" should be "This advice is" or "These pieces of advice are" as I don't think their is such a thing as "advices"..
"posts. And if you" You should almost never start a sentence with and or but. They go after commas for the most part..  
"posts. If you" starting a new sentence this way is more proper..

The last days Iíve done some research to find out, how you can write quality posts to get Merit Ė even as a Newbie.

Iím a Newbie too and I saw some Newbies very disappointed, because they havenít any merit yet, even their activity would be enough to be a full member. My advice: don't be discouraged!

Before you post something, read the last comments. Double posts are very ennoying. It takes some time to read the comments before, but youíll see it is necessary to avoid double posts. And if you read all the comments you will recognize, how many ennoying double posts there are sometimes.

Just a couple examples..

I'll tell you what OP. PM me in a few months or so after you have worked hard on your English, when you are ready, show me how much you have improved, and if I think you have made good progress to better yourself I will give you merits for it.. Maybe a bunch if I have them..


To be honest with you I thought the author of this topic got huge merit but I feel disappointed seeing you op no merit yet. Then how could you be an effective advisor if you yourself didn't have any merit. Fuck!

You made me LOL

You are right but OP does make good points..

1694  Other / Meta / Re: xtraelv and Lafu: Merit abusing or not? (Forum issue - Discussion needed) on: May 21, 2018, 03:24:09 AM
I'm pretty sure what happened is cryptopia staff came here not knowing btct very well, and they attempted to promote cryptopia like many other companies do..

They didn't know the etiquette of btct so they unknowingly broke some rules for multiple threads and such..
Common btct noob mistakes but the admins of topia are hotheads with huge egos so instead of learning a battle ensued resulting in topia admins pretty much writing off btct and blocking btct links from their chats and stuff..  

You might have noticed that I don't have any Cryptopia signature or adverts on my profile. I have strong links with a number of exchanges.

As a crypto investor you get associations with many coins, exchanges and people.

Cryptopia has changed from being run by 2-3 people last year to now being run by a new CEO and about 116 staff. Only one founder still works there part time.

The main reason I come on bitcointalk is to expose scams and to assist users that post in the Cryptopia thread because bitcointalk is largely ignored by their staff.

I don't even particularly like bitcointalk because the new users get treated quite poorly.


Cryptopia has been hammered a lot on btct to the point to where you would almost feel bad for them but they bring it on themselves..

This thread is pretty much a continuation of cryptopia not knowing WTF they are doing and getting themselves into trouble.. Probably..

I mean, Ill give xtraelv the benefiet of the doubt that he didn't know that he would cause trouble for himself with his meriting activity, and I'm sure all of this crap that just got stirred up over his use of merit is a pretty good big warning to him and hopefully he will brush up on btct culture/etiquette and act accordingly..

Cryptopia has really been beaten up a lot here on btct for not knowing what they are doing so I say you don't wreck this guys account yet, make sure he is well aware (I think he is) of the problem, and lets hope he can end the cycle of cryptopia/btct - Hatfield/McCoy rivalry..

Cryptopia was beaten up because their systems couldn't cope with the volume and support requests were astronomical. It is only logical and understandable that users became upset.

As a mod I tried to do what I could during that time. The rest of the time I largely ignore that thread. Usually Lafu is on there on his own trying to do his best with limited English.  Every exchange gets hammered on here. Exchange users don't read, don't research and have opinions about things they know little about. They hit the nuclear button when their funds are stuck and disappear once it is resolved. They gravitate to here to voice their opinions on here because abusive behaviour is largely unmoderated.  I prefer spending months unravelling complex scams where people have actually lost funds and preventing others from losing their funds.

I'm also not convinced that this is without malice. I can't imagine someone analysing someones "merits" for no reason when they don't have time to message those users. I suspect ulterior motive.

116 staff and an unpaid mod with english problems is the only one there most of the time? Besides you?
I don't know, I haven't been back there in a while since they banned me one too many times..

When I was talking about cryptopia previously having problems I meant the first few times anything was posted about "cryptopia" here.. Way back..

The reason new accounts seem to be treated poorly is that their are more alt spam accounts and bot accounts made here everyday than you can imagine, most are up to no good..
THIS IS WHY the merit system was put into place and why you got yourself called out on it..

At first glance it looks like you are sending merit to your alt account, like 95% of the cases that look like yours..
If we were all so terrible to noobs we would not have even considered your innocence.. A lot of good people here took their time to come to the conclusion..

You can think it's malice all you want, but being a "scambuster" you should know that the people you are responding to here bust 100 spammers/scammers (accounts) a day at times by analyzing merit and crypto transactions, and they deserve it..
If you look, their are threads specifically analyzing all the merit ever transacted on this forum with all kinds of stats, charts, and graphs so yeah people analyze merit a heck of a lot and the reason you were singled out is your suspicious merit activity..

You giving all of your merit to one account is a bullseye on your back that you are one of these spammers the forum is fighting, but look it seems people have come to the conclusion that you are innocent..

Actually, this method of bringing these cases to the public, like yours was, works pretty darn good to clear innocent peoples name.
I know I don't like seeing people get screwed when they don't deserve it, and I'm pretty sure a lot of others don't either by the way they come here on their own time to personally dig into these cases and find the truth..

mdayonliner might be a bit new and anxious to bust spammers, and they saw the target on your back that you made, and now you are one of the few that get let off the hook..  
"I didn't know" doesn't get many people off either..

I suggest you lose the hostility about your situation and bring yourself to a good understanding of the culture of btct, so you can get along swimmingly by avoiding mistakes like this and become a fine upstanding member..

TuxExchange.com still has NO KYC, you can come straight from TOR with as much of whatever crypto you want and leave with whatever you want at any time, no questions asked..
You only have to verify your email and I think it can be any email.. 

According to Canadian law it is not required since Tux does not list any fiat currencies..
Their company and ownder/devs identities are legally registered in Canada..

It could be a GREAT exchange if more people would use it..
1699  Other / Meta / Re: Is a campaign manager responsible for preventing low quality posting? on: May 20, 2018, 03:47:37 PM
Not only the campaign manager should be held accountable but the COMPANY HIRING THE MANAGER should be held ultimately accountable..


If red tagging the campaign manager doesn't quickly fix the problem, give em 1 week, then BLAST EVERY TEAM MEMBER of that particular company with a big fat

XYZ COMPANY PROMOTES SPAM ON THE FORUM
With a reference to the campaign thread..

They will care when every OP of their official threads and every representative posting on their behalf gets slapped with a scammer tag..


They are the ones at fault, they are the ones PAYING for the spam, and making a killing off of it..
1700  Other / Meta / Re: xtraelv and Lafu: Merit abusing or not? (Forum issue - Discussion needed) on: May 20, 2018, 03:18:43 PM
I'm not sure either, but I'd put it at 90% sure that xtraelv and Lafu have some sort of arrangement for those merits that were exchanged.  Either they're friends, they're alts, or there was some goods, services, or money exchanged.  I don't know, but the pattern of their merit-giving is suspect and not normal.

Neither Lafu nor myself are "customer support" .We are both UNPAID volunteer moderators on Cryptopia -


So yeah, they are friends, have common interests, do the same things, post in the same threads..
I think you could consider them both members of "team cryptopia" or something like that..

I can see why he thinks that lafu's posts are very worthy of merit from his perspective, and it's very possible that he didn't know this would draw great suspicion upon him..

Lafu helps users with problems on bitcointalk while I generally am involved in busting scams on here. As moderators we have some special priviliges, abilities and contacts to help people that have issues with the exchange. Neither of us have to be on here because generally Cryptopia ignores this "bitcointalk" forum because it is largely unmoderated and often has abusive people on it. So their staff doesn't generally post on here.

I'm pretty sure what happened is cryptopia staff came here not knowing btct very well, and they attempted to promote cryptopia like many other companies do..

They didn't know the etiquette of btct so they unknowingly broke some rules for multiple threads and such..
