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

How is the value of a post evaluated?

I'm not afraid of censorship, when done, well, censorship. I remember when I could not judge whether mods were doing their job well. I can not judge myself if I agree a topic is out of stock if it is deleted.

Mods, if you feel you need to close a thread down, why not just lock it? Some other forums have a "trash" section where the "deleted" topic goes, is still available to read, but does not clutter the main forum. Perhaps this would be something to look at here?

Can anyone give a good reason why deleting a topic would be more appropriate to just lock it, excuse absences and other unforeseen circumstances? Smiley Smiley

If a thread is deleted, spammers hopefully cannot use it to claim rewards in signature and similar campaigns.

How to ask questions the smart way
When you’re happy with the answers in a thread you have started, please click ‘lock topic’ to prevent spam.

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.

We are very careful about who we ban. You should be more careful about what posts you copy and paste:

It's very good that here so many ppl are involved in organazing everything according to rules. I'm a new here but I can say that mostly on forums moderators just simply blocked users or topics without any explanations. But here even one special topic is about policy.
Of course each user should read rules and policy before posting smith but anyway in my opinion such kind of discussions are very useful especially for new members like me.
 
Thanks to all of u to explain everything properly Smiley

This is all about QUALITY. If we want to have posts to qualify to a certain standard, we must have measures for that.

So how we get those measures, who has them?
The answer is: no one, because post's quality measures actually should be an agreement between forum members. In respect of the forum posts, we need:

1) A standard of LOW-NORMAL-GOOD-EXCELLENT quality post.
2)  How we define them (measures). 

If that quality standard for forum posts is described clearly enough in the forum guidelines, everyone should be able to assess the quality/value of their posts.
And if someone goes against the forum culture, moderators will stop them.

All in all, without clear, but short descriptions of what is acceptable and what is not in forum posts, people continue to wonder, why their posts get removed sometimes.

So far I have not violated any single rules and I have no complaints other than a problem with kwh. What I face after kwh can throw the fiat crazy because I do not agree with the existence of the false statement. Cool

From https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=703657.0:

Q: I can't post / embed an image and I'm a newbie. Why?
A: Embedded images have been disabled for newbies due to abuse (see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1172918.0). You'll be able to post images when you become Jr. Member or if you pay a small fee. See more: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2385104.0.

What do you mean by being part?
As you have registered on bitcoin talk forum, you already are. If you want to be actively part of the forum, then just enter discussions writing helpful and interesting comments on threads you feel you have something valuable to share.
But before you start, please read the Beginners Help on Home section, and forum rules.

The first thing you need to do is stop using bold and colour in your posts like that or most people here will simply put you on their ignore list.

Which board your posts belongs in depends on exactly it is you are trying to promote. The Bitcoin and Altcoin sections are separate so it needs to go in the correct one. What do you mean by 'platform'? Is it hardware or a service? If it is cloud mining then forget about promoting it all together.

Your signature space is the only place you can put referral links. If you put them in your posts then your posts will get deleted.

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?
