I am not Chuck Norris.

I already have those since I've had to get them anyway previously. If I submit some or all of those, whoever has them can essentially steal my identity, apply for a credit card in my name, or whatever. So trust and reputation is at stake here, which I believe is the idea by the OP.

In another thread, I was also exploring the possibility of large bitcoin transaction escrows. No one has PM'd yet.

And possibly I may (or may not) facilitate a group buy for a batch of ASIC chips.

Theymos,

I have carefully considered your request for offers and must respectfully decline to participate.

While I understand the need of the forum and community at large for a collection of individuals to act as a holding  company for the forum, I am not prepared to accept that level of risk to my personal finances.

I realize I probably was not on your short list of candidates in any case.

I would like to suggest you consider having some portion of the forum holdings set up as a BTC lending group.  How exactly this would be done is worth discussion but I have confidence the forum "elders" can figure it out.  Public disclosure of all loans (amount, forum ID,  duration,  terms) would deter default.  Collateral could be simply holding proof of identify of the borrower. In case of full default publishing all identification details and debt owed should be enough to remove the individual from the community.

In the longer term, the public listing of loans with satisfactory repayments fills a community need for establishing a reputation in an ever growing community.

Every little BTC helps.  14P3TfbttSpQ3BxUjwrUrmNU6F4mB9aMS5

Uh, this is over since February/March AFAIK. Also, the highlighted part above will not work in any case.

- Full reserve is not a requirement, but you will be responsible for returning the money within a few weeks of a legitimate request no matter what.

So you're LENDING the money.

Yes, there's no way anything of this could go wrong.

Thanks, but I'm not confident in the security/stability of MPEx.

Leaving aside that MPEx hasn't been down in its entire lifetime as long as the forum was down this week, I guess that's a thought.

Does MPEx have a thousand active users each pulling hundreds of db queries and executing php commands on the site at the same time?


Also, I think that wasn't a purely *technical* concern.   Roll Eyes

Of course not, but that's not how MPOE-PR answers questions. The distraction answer is always better while throwing a tissy fit.


Lol.  Yea, i think MPOE-PR is a good example of how not to do pr.

Thanks to my footfan Phin's inclination to necropost I find out what Mayflies "think" on various topics. Anonymous "community member" #9487592348, September 14, 2012 - June 13, 2013. RIP. 8 months, such a young age.

As to the load point: yes, it does carry more load than this forum.

Should this not be explicitly limited to VIP's, donators and supernodes?
Edit: ...and mods
I had assumed this was the way it already worked.

It's not exactly the same thing, but I was really disappointed today when I saw that even John K. has jumped onto the gaudy signature advertising bandwagon.

What? Huh
That ad has been in my profile since Feb/January if I'm not wrong. I originally had that in after being a bit short on my monthly bitcoin purchase, and it's grown on me ever since.

It could be that I just never noticed the colors in your signature before. I honestly never paid much attention to signatures at all until about the last week or so when the coloured background, large font paid advertisements really started to take off.

Now it's getting annoying to the point at which I've started to ignore some people for no reason other than their signatures makes the page look ugly and unreadable.

I guess the other possibility is that something nefarious is going on. How long have you been advertising for PLAYTIN Casino?
