Now when a link leads to bitcointalk.org, it has a green hover color. For example:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0
Meta
"Legit bitcointalk.org link"

(If you don't see it, you probably have a cached version of the CSS -- manually refresh this page or wait a few hours.)

This should make it easier to identify phishing, especially once your eyes get used to seeing it.

Credit for this idea goes to Cyrus.

You haven't been promising too much the other day.

Does this only apply to links in PMs/posts? When I hover on thread titles and other bitcointalk.org links that are not part of a post/PM, it will show as it has in the past. For example, when I am about to click on my watch list, or click on the "reply" button in a thread.

Would you consider expanding this to other bitcointalk.org links that are not a part of BBcode as well? I would think the majority of the bitcointalk.org links that the average user will click on will not be a part of bbcode and would be used to the link not changing color.

Or maybe any link that is not a bitcointalk.org link could change to red or some other color.

Doesn't seem to work on my mobile. Edit you have to hover for it to change?

Quickseller, what colour is your signature? That's showing up as all green for me. Not sure if it was always that way.

It is green with white letters that say "MoneyPot.com - Your trusted Bitcoin Gambling Wallet"

It looks like there is a black dark blue (#476C8E) underline when I hover over my signature.

Dark blue, isn't it?



Without hovering:
With hover:

Example from the forum-intern (colored) link in my signature:

underline color: #476C8E; for the moneypot sig, so it hasn't changed.

Why would the update needs to work for the links in the signature ? I think theymos specifically said it will show green only for links that have "bitcointalk" keyword in it or all the legit url's that link to this forum.

Great Idea Cyrus!

great idea theymos
it will help users to identify fake links hidden behind text pretending to bitcointalk link

If its possible making it bold green will work good and easy to noticeable.

Looks good.

I always check if I am logged in whenever I click a link to "Bitcointalk.org". If I am not, it is a phishing site. With this addition help, it will be easier to detect phishing sites.

I can't believe your main concern here is your signature campaign.  Undecided
The signatures were affected as they are bbcode. Nothing was changed in them besides the line you can see if your signature contains a link.


If its possible making it bold green will work good and easy to noticeable.
I agreed to shields suggestion that it should be bolded. I for one with a bit of eye problem, honestly I didn't boticed the difference until I leaned towards the screen and focus in the link and I saw that it was green. It would be best if it would be more noticeable as i'm sure it is not only me that has problems with eye problems.

It's a more than welcome change for certain people since they tend to click on anything without looking closely at the actual masked link by hovering their mouse over the link. With this change the difference is clearly visible, even for the worst noobs.

Quickseller, what colour is your signature? That's showing up as all green for me. Not sure if it was always that way.
It is green with white letters that say "MoneyPot.com - Your trusted Bitcoin Gambling Wallet"

It looks like there is a black dark blue (#476C8E) underline when I hover over my signature.

Ok. Just couldn't recall it being that colour before and looked a bit garish.

is this the reason of our signature campaign problem? I heard from some one telling signature not pay us because of this change?

The bots for bitmixer and yobit don't seem to be working right so maybe this had something to do with it.

It's annoying and time consuming for me when people report PMs as phishing links and you have to quote the message and look closely to check so this feature is useful. It might even be worth adding a holding page that gives you a warning after you click on a link asking you to double check the url and be careful with what info you enter. In the past others have tried phishing with fake blockchain.info links. Newbs likely wont realise what the green means as well.
