The policy to not remove anything worked when the forum was small. Now that we have thousands of posts a day, we can't afford 50% of them being junk. The moderators are now instructed to be less tolerant of low-value posts.

Some guidelines:

1. Free speech - you can say anything as long as it is relevant and presented in a calm and polite manner. Swearing, SHOUTING etc. make your post more likely to be removed.
2. No zero value posts or threads, like "SELL SELL SELL"
3. No pointless or uninteresting threads.
4. No referral code spam
5. No NSFW content

What should be the minimum number of words in a given post. Just to be sure I do not fall into the category of "zero value posts."

Quantity has nothing to do with quality. The above question about when a user is able to post images could have been answered (in a constructive manner) with 3 symbols ("Jr.") IMHO.

Wow it looks really less tolerance with such terms. But I think it's the right way for the site who pays really money. It's kinda your work. It would be too easy to type everything and expect some payment!

Well, for your information, it's not the forum who's paying for your posts.

It's the external websites, they're paying you to promote their website thru your signature space.

How difficult would it be to implement a voting system for posts using the current forum software?
i agree with you it is  difficult would it be to implement a voting system for posts using the current forum software?

By the "voting system" that you all are talking about, am I correct in assuming that it is a voting system to automatically remove a thread? That would be a great addition to easily reduce the junk threads in the forum like those random-generated usernames that posts with junk.

No voting system would work because multiple accounts are allowed and 'brigading' would follow, leading to neverending disputes. Basic junk is handled ok presently. Signature campaigns create most of the worthless posts problem imo.

My friend had negative experience with forum moderation policy. he began his activity on this site some months ago at the first time.And used only one off-topic chat and posted there jokes by copy-paste. So in two weeks they just banned him.

This is a great new implementation by bitcoin organisation to implement this new rule. There is just too much cyber junk floating around in bitcoin. Now at least the bad posters will have a reason to stop.

Gambling. Services if you're charging people for whatever you're providing.

I used to post on this forum... now it's too heavy handed.
What is with all the threads asking questions. It's like some kind of phishing scheme. No other forums have nearly this many probing threads.

what do you mean by this statement, do you have BTC? if so, how many and where do you keep them?  did you like the Nazi's? you mentioned gestapo....i was just playing with you and i realize it is a pretty useless reply, but sometimes you gotta loosen up a bit.

there are way too many threads on here to really stick them all in one category of "probing" or "scamming" or "phishing"

sometimes i hit the forum here just to read about the tech and what people are doing with the same code to produce new effects.


think about the original satoshi code, nothing in that set of scripts was new or is new, crypt hashes and cracking them, network protocols sending to multiple "servers", storing the full data in the stream and on all servers was a little new, but much like the way that the cell carriers first started moving sms and email data....all mundane boring bits of code that had been used for years, combined with the virtual currency thing, which never caught on with the social sites other than within the site itself, mix it all together and it created a brand new completely self-contained, self-reliant and even self-updating of sorts system of security and currency creation and exchange. 

and now, look what people have done with that original concept and code, new forms of crytpo, new algorithms forms and a brand new way of doing business that will one be the main form of currency whether each person likes it or not, all from a handful of separate boring code libraries

i even think some of these altcoin/community based currencies have breached new forms of self-enhancing commerce, where bitcoin was and is a pretty straight forward, value based commodity for open trade.

it is like looking at the world and only seeing the bad stuff, this forum has some pretty annoying people, pretty useless and annoying threads and some downright evil people straight up using it to steal from others, but there are also new concepts that would have never been found if not for the thinktank conversations that a forum of this size and nature can produce., just saying

Phishing proof... from Kraken
 "We know that some of you have accounts on bitcointalk.org and we wanted to let you know that a phishing attempt was made on bitcointalk email addresses earlier today.

If you received an email with the subject Mtgox.Claim assessment process, delete it and do not click on the link it contains! This email did not come from Kraken, but was spoofed to look as though it came from our support email (support@kraken.com).

For more information about the email, see this post on reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/4m3op0/psa_phishing_attempts_reported_today_kraken_re/

We do not know how the bitcointalk email addresses were obtained, however the bitcointalk database has been compromised in the past. You can be assured that this incident was not the result of any breach in Kraken’s database and your personal information with Kraken is safe.

Even if you did receive the email, you are safe so long as you do not click on the link (just delete the email and you will be fine). If you did click on the link and are concerned about it, please contact us at: support@kraken.com."

You can't have an avatar until you become a Full Member. You can post images once you're a Jnr Member. See the stickies in Meta for details on user ranks.

Nice guidelines but I just have one question:

How do we evaluate a thread that is "uninteresting"?
I think there is no standard to it. Because interest relies on the person reading it.

I agree with majority of the guidelines except Guideline #3 which is no pointless or uninteresting threads since it is very subjective because what might be interesting to and to other people might not be interesting to you and what might be interesting to you and to other people might be pointless for me so I guess and suggest that we must be clear with this one so there will be no gray area

thanK you for that information. It is indeed a fact that many would like to hack accounts due to the daily earnings here in bitcointalk. But this kind of phishing is deceiving since it camouflaged as a support. This information is appreciated to combat account thieves.

I see this guidelines as fair and should be followed.I just want to ask what does NSFW content in the section number 5 mean, i cannot grasp its meaning hope you enlighten me please.
