Over 15% of the annual household income in the US - extremely stiff. I considered donating until I saw what they consider a reasonable minimum donation.

The VIP level they have set just proves neglect. If I donate $35,000 a half purple coin under my name isn't going to cut it - they better be curing cancer.

You need to realise that these prices were set back when BTC had a lot, lot less value than it does today. Now an argument could be made to change the requirements, but theymos has consistently opposed it as current VIPs and Donors feel that it isn't fair to them given that they had to contribute that amount of BTC. Hence the exorbitant price of these account ranks.

It was stated when the ranks were created that they would be pegged to BTC and not USD.  There's a chance different ranks might be created eventually, but that's unlikely.

Hence the exorbitant price of these account ranks.

Hence the reason he says the current VIP level "just proves neglect." If they intend to use it as any sort of incentive to donate, it would only make sense to adjust it. Forget about pegging it specifically to a BTC amount - we're talking about purchasing power here. The purchasing power of 1 bitcoin today is exponentially higher than it was when they set these requirements. It pays a lot more bills today, that's for sure. It's not as if BTC is just staying steady and beating inflation - when purchasing power has increased so dramatically, it just doesn't make sense.

I don't think anybody is advocating for a correlation with USD or EUR but would anybody really claim it's unfair to lower the requirements for each level? Donating 10 BTC in 2011 is certainly less generous than donating 1 BTC today. In 2011 I could mine 50 BTC/week with GPUs. The logic is certainly flawed here. As it stands now, when I see a donor on the board I just assume they donated back when BTC was cheap and easy to mine.

Their board - their rules, I suppose - just seems senseless. You'd have to be pretty damn generous to give up a typical annual salary as a donation to a bitcoin message board just to get VIP status when the same status could have been had a couple years ago for the price of a cab ride.

I read somewhere that there's a script that would could down to the next activity update, but unfortunately I can't find it anymore.
Can someone give me the link?

Could someone please comment on my understanding of activity?

The way it's calculated:

time = number of two-week periods in which you've posted since your registration
activity = min(time * 14, posts)

My current activity is 84 and I have 436 posts. This must mean I have been posting 7 two-week periods in total since my registration * 14 which equals 84.
In order to become a full member (activity 120) I just have to post 1 reply every 2 weeks until I have been posting 9 two-week periods, as 9*14 equals 126 which is larger than 120?

Have a look at the post above I made a few weeks ago.
This calculation is also in the opening post of this topic.

There's something fundamentally flawed in your understanding of it. You can only get a max activity of 14 per two week period, so newer members will only rise faster if they've posted in all those those periods and you haven't.

so then, no account newer than 68 weeks should have 5 coins? Tongue

EDIT: looking at the membersip list i see where i was confused. now my question is, "Where have all the Heroes gone?"
