As I've said, this is not the optimal solution. I just don't want to make the major modifications to SMF necessary for a really good moderation system. I have many more interesting projects to deal with. If someone else wants to donate their time to make the modifications, let me know.

Moderation is something I've thought a lot about, even before I was involved with Bitcoin.

I don't much like "universal" reputation systems like those of Slashot/Reddit, and I don't like any of the existing SMF reputation mods. WoT systems are good, and I really like FMS. However, since moderation is necessary anyway for legal reasons, and non-registered users will see the one "official stream" of posts, I tend to prefer centralized moderation for centralized sites.

My optimal design:
A new jr. moderator position is added with no moderation ability over established posters. Newbies can post freely, but their posts are subject to more strict moderation by the many jr. moderators. All newbie posts are additionally available on a single page for review by all members for moderation/reporting.

The reporting system also needs to be enhanced, and moderation needs to be made easier.

Some restrictions also need to be increased/reduced based on post count after these changes are made. Also, bans need to be improved, there should be a way to automatically ban based on certain behavior, there should be a separate ban appeal system, etc. If I had an unlimited amount of time, I would rewrite the forum software from scratch to support all of the features I would like.

Due to a mass of trolling, only established posters are able to post in non-newbie sections. You are considered "established" if you have spent 4 hours online and have made 5 posts.

If you have really good posts, you can post a request for preemptive whitelisting in the appropriate topic.

Also:
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.
- You need 50 posts to put an image in your signature.

Note that it may take up to 10 minutes for your PM or posting permissions to be granted.

I disagree w/ this policy so bad!!

Already has 18 post, yet still a Newbie Sad

I guess you will be a newbie until you have 50 posts.

If its 50 posts then people will just post rubbish to get off the newbie list.  BTW, just like I'm doing here.

The fact that a newbie has to post a lot of rubbish in this topic just because has to be considered estabilished and post in the desired section is unresonable. Indeed I 've preferred not to post this obvious sentence.

So this is the appropriate place to make posts to make up my quota? :-)

Random observation: people worried about the 51% attack should ask whether an organization with that much computing power wouldn't be better served by attacking some other currency, like the Australian Dollar?

Newbie restrictions are not that bad, I was out after a day I think.  Just don't fuck around and you'll be let loose to whatever forum you want to be in soon enough Smiley

I wanted to report a regression in Diapolo's patch, but I guess I have to spam a few posts here first before I can do this.

[edit]
Whoops, I didn't even realize that he had a thread in the newbie section as well. Heh.

Anyways I am new to bitcoin mining and have just made my 1st coin. Now to figure out how to 'sell' it.

I think the restrictions are a good way to filter some spam from the forum. It now requires some effort to troll at least.

Yeah, some. After lurking for a month, I have to say that there is just as much schilling and trolling as any forum. It's the nature of the internet.
