I don't think the bitcoin forum should be at bitcoin.org. Just my (latest) 2 cents. I agree that this place is very unprofessional.

I don't think the bitcoin forum should be at bitcoin.org. Just my (latest) 2 cents. I agree that this place is very unprofessional.

A list of people who agree with you:

1. the dev team
2. major exchange operators
3. major pool operators
4. people trying to start bitcoin businesses
5. people trying to convince existing business to accept bitcoins

Ok.. well can we fix it after Tuesday? :-)

Create some unofficial bitcoin site (a .com or .net), move the forums there, make 0 reference to it on bitcoin.org. And other parties can make their own forums if they want.

To explain a bit more, you should very clearly make a distinction between Bitcoin as an open source platform with a downloadable client, and basically everything else. These forums really "dirty" the image of Bitcoin and could drive down its perceived worth and future quite a bit. They also make a stronger perceptual link between anything written or linked to on these forums, and the makers of Bitcoin, regardless of whether its fair. The fact that people can do some really illegal things using Bitcoin technology makes this even more important. I'm sure none of this is news though.

Business professionals -- the people we are trying to convince to accept bitcoins -- are very turned off by the forums.

We are hoping to swap this forum with weusecoins, prefer a "professional code of conduct" and make that the primary forum.



How about pay per post?  Like 0.01 BTC to the forum for each post.  I bet you'd see a lot less trolling Smiley

Make that "the peope <i>you</i> are trying to convince to accept bitcoins".  I'm at most moderately interested in existing businesses accepting bitcoins.  What I really want to see is new businesses, the kind that don't exist now because there's too much red tape to start one.  All this effort to drag the USG into bitcoin will prevent those businesses from starting, which means the revolutionary nature of bitcoin is unrealized.
