The problem with lists like this is that they look all lovely at first and people start complementing you on them, but way later a poster could always start replacing them with malicious links or make it look like a legitimate link but actually lead to a malicious one.

In fact, if you were intending to do that, you would do exactly what you're doing now and tell people not to search for the links on the Internet and only to click the links that you post.

I'm not saying you're necessarily a scammer, I'm just saying that if you were one, this would be a super easy way to do it.

True...
Maybe OP could write a big/red/bold disclaimer, saying not to click on the links, but copy/paste them instead ?

(Edit) or way better : put the links in code tags, then they could not be clicked. Like I did in my previous post.

why even create such a list in the first place?
there are already trusted lists around which people can use. lists such as bitcoin.org help for beginners to choose their wallets. https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet

or lists such as this topic https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1631151.0 which also describes what each wallet does and is created by a much more trustable member.

and as for your altcoin list, each of those altcoins have already a website or an announcement topic on bitcointalk which people must visit instead.

People will ALWAYS  click on links thinking they are going to the correct place, i've even questioned going onto legit sites even when i've gone through suggestions from this site.

Good idea.

I agree, but for newcomers (like me), navigating on bitcointalk and finding the right information / topic is not easy. I wish I could have a stickied topic like this one the first time I visited the forums. Even after two months, I could have a hard time finding what I am looking for. I think this is far from being useless (if done the right way)

your problem is not knowing how to search!
all the links above can be found with a quick google search.
https://www.google.com/search?q=bitcoin+website > first result is bitcoin.org
https://www.google.com/search?q=ethereum+website > first result is ethereum.org
https://www.google.com/search?q=monero+website > I don't know what getmonero.org is and what monero.org is so I continue the search like this:
https://www.google.com/search?q=monero+announcement+site%3Abitcointalk.org > first result, topic from 2014, 3833655 views, 1790 pages > everything checks out. > this has the links

the same approach can be used for others too. you can also use websites like coinmarketcap.com that list all these in one place.

Fair enough.  A lot of the time phishing sites rank even higher on Google than the real ones - many people have been scammed by phishing sites of the Bitcoin mixer Bitblender, because a phishing site used to rank higher than the real site.  A lot of phishing sites also use Google's ads to trick people into thinking it's a higher result.

For wallets though, there is one in the Beginners and Help section, which ideally should be the first section you go to.  However I understand that a lot of newbies wouldn't do that as soon as they see the forum.
(Edit) or way better : put the links in code tags, then they could not be clicked. Like I did in my previous post.
Yeah, that's way better.  What you should be doing though is talking to a trusted member about this, perhaps to direct newbies' attention towards the Beginners and Help section better.

You nailed it Wink  That's why scammer use google ads to attract more people for gaining traffic on site. Also  there are so many phishing attempts on social networks.I already uninstalled slack app from my android phone because hackers use bots to send fake myetherwallet site link almost every week.

Well, I don't want to sound like I know everything, but I'm working in IT/web. First result in a google search is not everytime the legitimate website. There are many black SEO ways to appear on top of a google search, especially when the legitimate website is a new one (= new altcoin). IMO a stickied post like this is way more trustable than a google search.

(edit) what about your links ? are we sure they do not point to malware websites ?  Grin
I know they are not ! But you see what I mean

If you avoid the sponsored links at the top you are already 90% of the way to not clicking the malicious links.

Anybody blindly clicking the first normal hit should deserve a slap in the face too.

I don't see the purpose of telling them not to Google The links. As long as you make sure that you're clicking on a proper link once you Google something you should be fine. Now the one thing with this there that you going to have to look out for, is the original announcement seems to have valid links, but people could sneak in there quickly and put it invalid ones. If there was a way to close the thread that reopen it so that only the original poster was the one adding links to it that would be awesome.

If there was a way to close the thread that reopen it so that only the original poster was the one adding links to it that would be awesome.

What about this, how about you set up a Google Document, add to list to there and then include that link in the original posting. Then you have exclusive control over the Google Document and can update that as you see fit, while everyone else can see it.  I think this is the best option in this situation.
