Bitcoin mining will be better after merger of AI and crypto-currency. It is a great news.

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
I would also like this implemented .

Probably because it wasn't relevant or you didn't read the rules. Posts like this aren't allowed:

Joined the airdrop now, Thanks dev

waiting for airdrop

i have joined telegram, great project

The rest of your posts are also terrible. You'll be banned pretty soon if you don't drastically improve your content and contributions here.

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....).

+1

EDIT:  Wait, does +1 count as a zero-value post?   Huh
However, the policy is being abused to censor valid options for bitcoin BTC users to consider.

Would banning you be an abuse? You know, seeing as you just plagiarised a post from earlier in the thread:

Bitcoin forum moderation policy is being abused to censor valid options for bitcoin BTC users to consider.

Oh, and these guys:

In response to the reply that was just deleted, I never shattered a single rule and i don't have any complaints apart from the issue with KWH.  Mytime on here has been all right.  I am simply declaring what I came across following KWH threw his small match because I do not accept his fake claims.

In light of the answer that was quite recently erased, I never broke a solitary run and I have no grumblings other than the issue with KWH. My chance on here has been okay. I am just expressing what I pursued into KWH had his little tantrum since I don't concur with his false proclamations.

In response to the reply that was just deleted, I never broke a single rule and i have no complaints other than the issue with KWH.  My time on here has been just fine.  I am simply stating what I ran into after KWH threw his little fit because I do not agree with his false statements.

Oh, and also this guy as well:

I think it would be nice that this will be implemented but how can the moderators monitor all of the junk ones?
Well, good luck and hope this will be successful.

the guidelines on this honourable platform are well explained; however i will plead with moderators to temper justice with mercy especially on posts from members who have not stayed too long on the platform. Gradually with time, they would be well abreast with all guidelines and hence sanity would be achieved.

Please read 5, then read 1, then read 5, then read 1 and tell me if you see a problem.

Can I say "fat cock" if I present it in a calm and polite manner?

Yes, you are free to say anything but it has been clarified that only if it is RELEVANT to the topic. Saying harsh or rude words cannot be presented in a calm or polite manners because that is how powerful language is. Rude words will be recognized and interpreted as rude words.

What section would I post in about online poker? Also wanted to create a publish about training texas hold em low buy-ins. What is the policy about this right here? I would not mind donating some earnings to bitcointalk.

If you want to promote a site then Gambling. If you want to talk about it then probably Gambling Discussion.

You can donate to the forum here: https://bitcointalk.org/donate.html

Or buy a 'Copper' membership rank from here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2385104.msg24371150#msg24371150

Awareness about bitcoin is increasing on the internet, and more bitcoiners are coming everyday. It's about to completely get out from the dark, so, a new policy should be introduced. Nevertheless. there are still some bitcoiners who don't know how to use it, and basically they stop using it eventually. So a new policy should be introduced about not using your account for some time.
"if a account holder has not used his/her account for months, his/her account should get 'put on hold' or 'removed' and BTC users should remain limited."

You can post a thread on the Meta board to ask. The most common reason for threads to be removed is that they have been posted on the wrong board. Make sure you read the description of each board to be sure you put it in the correct one.

We have the freedom of speech but we have our limitations. We cannot always say all what we are thinking. Being smart at using words is a responsibility.

What is considered referral code spam? One of those full on advertising posts with referral codes all over it like were posted when tradehill opened? What if it's a little more subtle? What about low content posts with the code in the signature?

I guess what I'm trying to ask is, is there any reason to not just fully ban referral codes? They're mostly just spam and don't really benefit the forum any. And then it'd be a clear enforceable line.

Just a thought.

I would prefer a full on blanket ban on them to be honest, though I think they're fine in signatures. If people are making low quality posts then they should be dealt with regardless of whether they have a ref code in their signature. However, sometimes they can be useful for companies. For instance, you may want to track how many users are signing up via your thread on bitcointalk or a specific users signature to measure how effective promotion is here and I think that's fine.
