In my opinion, only offering a new forum software won't be enough to attract people. Its personality has to be very different from this forum. For example, quite a few people have been complaining about the high noise of this forum so you might get a good market share if you strongly discourage newbies across the whole board, or even go as far as only letting known faces in.

I wouldn't be interested in it, in that case. How did all the known faces arrive on the scene without ever being a newbie?


A section full of only new ideas would be awesome. You can't get that if you let newbies in because they haven't been caught up on all the ideas. 'All' is an exaggeration, but you get the point.

Well as you can see I am a 'newbie' myself so I cannot comment on whether this forum is 'infested' as you say. If that really is a problem though I suggest re-organizing this forum into areas more friendly to beginners and those explicitly intended for the well seasoned. I don't think it would be a good idea to splinter a community on the basis of seniority. It would seem that a welcoming attitude toward new arrivals is an important part of the longevity of any community.

I would like to implement some features to help sort out the newbies from the people who don't want to see all the newbies questions.

Either a paid usergroup, or just having some subforums that are inaccessible until you have more than 500 or 1000 posts or something.  Maybe a combination of both.

3 more prizes paid out, 6 more to be claimed!

Joined the http://www.bitcoinforums.net forum and reached 20 posts over there. Just got the 0.2BTC reward from SgtSpike so happy about that.

good to have competition in all things so good to have the option of another forum.
This forum still has the best content but is becoming more and more unusable with the massive spike of new members. The other forum doesn't have the critical mass yet but is just starting out.

Also good to have the redundancy of an alternative forum. This forum had some downtime today right around the time of the price crash. I'm sure there were a ton of people looking to talk about what was happening.

Also while I'm at it I'm going to promote this http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/30763/bitcoin-crypto-currency?referrer=AvOIuBHoZXfspDOgXlkhmg2 - not a forum but a Q&A site.

Anyway,
thanks again SgtSpike and good luck. I'll continue to be active in both forums (at least while my mild obsession with bitcoin lasts)

I'm open to anything Alex, just let me know what it is you want to do, and how it needs to be done.  Preferably, post on the other forum so it's easier to see/access the information.

xenForo is pretty slick, and very developer-friendly.  They have a nice API for it.  It's not open source though.

Different people like different things I suppose.  I can't stand the looks of this forum, or any SMF/vB-based forum for that matter, and how aged they look.  I love the refreshing modernness of a xenForo-based forum.

But, you're welcome to not like it.  Smiley

I love the forum you made. It is:
(1) faster than this one
(2) allows my post to stand out from the noise
(3) and is easier to use (it doesn't feel like it was made 20 years ago).

In the name of decentralization, I demand you join this forum!

Ok, just kidding, but seriously, more posts would be appreciated to help the forum grow.
