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

hi sirius, i'm one Mark Wes'.  I was reading the forum rules u posted.  What is NSFW content?

Hlw,Bitcoiners Smiley
I do not quite understand the question being asked here. Can you expand a bit upon this?

I knew this was going to come up soon. Smiley
It looks as though whoever originally wrote these questions may not have used English as a first language, sorry about that. I would like to see the wording changed but im not sure its possible now. Shocked

I think what this one is basically getting at is, does theymos use trolls and moderation to distract people from the big issues facing bitcoin?

I may be wrong but thats what i took it to mean.  Huh
I may have posted the link but sorry i didn't write the messages. Embarrassed

Simple solution: ban signatures. No more signatures, no more signature campaigns requiring umpty-five posts per week to get credit.


I suggest you to start with yourself. Why do you have a signature? Take it off and then suggest such action.

I hope the forums are moderated a bit more carefully from now onwards. Spammers and those promoting some kind of ads should be banned absolutely.

Haven't seen any ads here at all, so it's safe to say that moderators are maintaining a good job.

Controls are good. Please add this to conditions for newbies like me to read as a matter of compulsion.

No, this is a private forum not some country's ideals. There is no guarantee of freedom of speech. Stick to the rules only.

Moderation Policy is a bit too contrasting in terms of details. I think it is opinion based, and free talk in this environment, but for now no useless, and etc. I think they should reconstruct this one. Smiley

mode rators delete threads that are conflict with their own interest thereby reducing the quantity and quality of information users can discover. but this message board is by the original btc guys so they will struggle with the powershift in btc that occurs as they cashout and new owners take over

Do you actually have any evidence of that because if you did they would likely be removed from staff. I'm guessing you probably either didn't read or can't follow the rules though which is why your posts or threads will have been removed.

I made a perfectly reasonable post that is in line with actual data, and it was deleted. No transparency as to who deleted it, no way to appeal it, or determine why it was deleted. How exactly does the moderation work, and why isn't there a better system for oversight/communication when things are deleted? I assume such protocols are in place, but I'm relatively new here.

You can create a thread about it in Meta if you really wish but read the rules first as it was almost certainly removed for breaking one: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=703657.0

Posts are removed for a whole host of reasons but staff don't have the time to explain or argue every single one so bear that in mind.

Thanks. Nah, not worth it (and the thread itself would risk getting deleted I guess). Looking at the rules the only one it could possibly be would be #1, which seem quite subjective. I get deleting obvious spam, but beyond that, subjective guidelines enforced in a non-transparent fashion is not a great mechanism. With wikis there's usually some means of seeing the moderation. But clearly I'm new here, so if those are the rules of the game, I'll follow along.

Your thread won't be deleted. Most rules or laws are subjective and is down to the person who is enforcing them but there was likely a good reason for it being deleted. It could have been a valid response in your eyes, but if the answer had already been given sufficiently or it was in a necrobumped thread then it may/can be removed.

No problem. Truth is, I like staying in this forum. I rather stay here than reading bitcoin news in Google. Every one has something good to say. Every one has their opinion to be respected.

Let's make a change. Change makes you better. Change makes you smarter. Change makes you healthier.
