"There will be competitors but to replace, it will be difficult." 
And the reason for that is because that's a post that states basically nothing.
It adds nothing to any discussion, and it's obvious.  It's like saying the sky is blue, pay
me for telling you that.  Whether you agree with it or not, those kinds of posts that
might fly on other discussion forums won't fly here.  Either add something substantial
to a thread or don't add anything.

Once again, respect to the moderators who are doing this.  I'd also suggest to those of
you who are reading this, if you see a post like the one above that's an obvious shit
post, report it.

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

Hello sir, I use this site alot for research about crypto but I dont know If I can start a new thread to make a "Crowdfunding" in Bitcoins, I want to know if its possible to gather a good amount of BTC so I can leave my country.. Im from Venezuela and I think BTC is an opportunity to avoid all the controls my goverment have over foreign currencies.. If I can gather enough Bitcoins I will leave my country ASAP.. So I want to know How can I start a new Thread..

Good day. I noticed that there is a new incentive to delete the "joined" type posts (concerning the airdrops), and I am all for it. My question is if it is OK to post "received the airdrop" type posts.

On one side that is not a very valuable post, but on the other side it is polite to thank the dev and to show to the others that the airdrop is legit (especially these days....).

I'm still a newbie (joined in 2014!!!!!!!!!!) (STILL A NEWBIE?Huh??) because I don't post junk, about anything and everything. It means I'm not eligible for most bounties, and don't always get taken seriously by forum members. Shame, as I have been in the space since 2012. Just tickles me that I'm still classed as newbie!!!!

No, these aren't allowed either.

Who says you have to post junk? All you would have needed was to make 30 posts over 3 activity periods and you would be a Junior Member. Activity reflects how active you have been, not merely how long you have been registered here. If that was the case, anyone could just buy an old hacked account and suddenly claim to be a long-time member without any posts or contributions, but that's why the activity system is there in the first place and is actually a fairly good system (though of course people can game or abuse it).

Totally understandable, I just can't imagine the workload and the spam of same threads that you get from us guys. I am quite new here, but when I need something I first search for it, before posting a new thread.

Keep up the good work!

BTC
I agree. I was just thinking it would have been handy for that time I gave away coins to newbies about a week ago and had to make sure people weren't suddenly signing up multiple times to the forum just to get in on the giveaway. I had to click through to each member's profile page to check.

yep i totally agree with this one. this forum should strive to earn for the betterment of each and every member of this group. I really think that we need to help each other out in order to create a better understanding of bitcoins and the importance of cryptocurrency in the world.

It means not safe for work, mostly that you can see words NSFW when there are porn contents or the same thing as that. To know the whole thing about NSFW, you can read all details here https://www.lifewire.com/what-does-nsfw-mean-2483431 it will tell you about almost everything about it.

Yes, very strange Huh if I do not want to write a long post, but just express my consent or say thank you for something?
Just make sure it's not an off topic one, there are questions that are answerable by a simple yes or no and if you want to express gratitude by saying thank you that's fine as long as it's not off topic.

not safe for work like any nudity or violence.  kind of vague, wish they can elaborate on it so there's no misunderstanding.  forums definition across the web are subjective to what is nsfw and what is not nsfw.  but to be safe, don't post anything you wouldn't want your kid should not read or see.

controlling topics of quality discussion is a good thing, anything that is not desirable in the post should be removed in order to reduce the accumulation of a discussion that does not get a response from members of the btc forum. so the window of discussion is not so dense with the title of discussion that is not desirable.

I just posted about a topic whether Bitcoin will be replaced or not and it got deleted. "There will be competitors but to replace, it will be difficult." 



I have reported several topics that have been deleted.  This is not an issue of free speech.  This is an issue about speaking the language of the forum at hand well enough to make a point that is of legitimate substance.  Too many on this forum cannot do this even with Google translate helping them.  In other words if you post nonsense moderators will delete it or other members will report it to be deleted via the discretion of moderators.


Example...even though your sentence technically properly formed in English, it is nonsense.  It registers in the mind as if I was to type asdfjk;/ asdfjkl'; asdfjk; asdfjk;l;/ asdfjkl;.  Most that know how to type can figure out where I get the pattern too.  Just because they can understand it doesn't make it any less irrelevant to any given topic unless someone is asking for typing patterns.

I don't think the moderators want a forum here called "Look at me!  I can write in (barely) comprehensible complete English sentences!!"

But that is all most of so many people on this forum are doing.  Nonsense aka shitposts are pushing users of this forum to crack down on it once it really spirals out of control.  I live in a country where people who barely speak English ask me about doing BTC campaigns.  I tell them "NO!" since I know where they will end up spewing nonsense.  Enough is enough.

Almost all of my comments are being deleted by a random Mod I don't know why.

My comments are just like

Thank you for the airdrop!

I will support the token , success.

Something like that, why is that being delete?

Why don't you read the rules and the sticky in the bounty section? They're being deleted for being utterly pointless spam:

Anyone posting info from their bounty application (usernames, addresses, etc.) or anything alongside the lines of "joined X", "looking forward to getting X", "thanks for the opportunity", "filled out form", "signed up for X", "applied", "following / liked / retweeted X" when such data is not required or the requirement is against the forum's rules risk having their account banned. These are extremely low quality posts generate massive amounts of spam, drowning out any legitimate discussion these threads may posses.

Those sorts of posts serve no purpose at all other than people trying to rank up their accounts.

Well some Token require to have forum post of each member who wants to join a specific token. If they delete it nobody will meet the requirements.
