What I don't get is why aren't the admins trying to put a stop to account selling? Every day I see a bunch of people selling accounts, most of which are probably hacked.
Admins can't do anything in this regard. If theymos doesn't prohibit account sales by default, then the admins and mods just go with whatever the rules are. And as per the rules, you are free to buy and sell accounts.

It's basically a rule from the perspective that if people aren't allowed to buy and sell accounts here, they will move elsewhere with their "business", and thus there is no incentive to prohibit on-forum sales.

That being said, that however doesn't mean that nothing happens in terms of the community taking action. There are certain members tagging proven bought accounts with negative trust, so that's at least something.

Sadly most of them are likely hacked these days (though account selling was always a mostly shady, black market practice). I'm leaning towards it would be better just prohibiting account sales and trashing their threads to be honest. Many users aren't even selling accounts at all and will try scam people selling them in empty autobuy links. I regularly tag these people but they just come back on a new account and greedy idiots keep on falling for it.

A better solution I have suggested to combat account farming and essentially put a stop to account selling is to remove signatures from ranks completely. To get one users have to donate to the forum ie $50 for a Full Member sized signature and $100 for a Hero-sized one + other perks. If this was the only way people could get a signature it would stop account farming and account sales almost 100%. Instead of the money then going to some scummy account farmer or scammer the money would go to the forum.

If an user losses access to his account, but can cryptographically prove that he owns all the BTC addresses posted before the hack, there are no excuses to not give the account back to the owner providing all the proof. I've seen people getting their accounts back with signed BTC messages so don't act as if it's impossible.

Everyone can lose their email and end up with their account here hacked. Hell, even satoshi lost access to his gmx email, yet, he could prove it was him if he signed any of his addresses. That is the whole point of Bitcoin. If admins aren't going to accept BTC signed messages as enough proof then I would suspect something scammy is going on (the conspiracy of inside jobs selling accounts for instance). I don't think that's true but who is to say.

I'm sort of tired of it too, because I think meta is one of the most interesting sections to read and to post in.

Any chance there could be a subforum created for people trying to get their hacked accounts back?  Seems like it might be useful and would reduce the clutter in meta.

Then there's the issue of why all these accounts are getting hacked in the first place.  I seriously doubt it's because of the previous database dump that happened a while back--but I might be mistaken.  I'm thinking a lot of people are getting phished with fake bitcointalk websites that ask for your login details.  You have to be careful with those things.  And I'm also wondering if it's a failure of Theymos and the security here, which does seem to be kind of lax--but I'm most definitely not a computer scientist and don't have the knowledge to evaluate that enough to make any accusations.  I am grateful this forum exists in the first place.  As bad as it can be at times, it's still a great forum and I've been a member here longer than any other forum I've registered at.

At some point I do agree with you. Why not create a certain section for all the hacked accounts. The problem here is that for me it is not being well moderated. The other main reason for it is that if the certain cased was resolved or being atleast investigated it would may lessen the posts in this section tho i doubt it to happen so really maybe create a section for it which I also thinks is not going to happen

So So sick of Seeing People complaining about their accounts being Hacked,Stolen,Banned on here. People Obvioulsly can't read from previous posts that these accounts will NEVER Reinstated or given back. (With the Exceptions of a few)


Stop Whining about your shitty account being hacked...No matter what you do or how many E-Mails you send you Won't get them back. Next time stay off the BS Porn sites and stop opening those Fucking Blatent E-mails just begging you to be hacked.

Stop Begging to get your Shitty banned Accounts back....You fucked up and now you have to deal with it.

The Admins here(2) Don't give a rats ass about your complaints or problems. You will not get them back. Please stop begging.


Pathetic!

i just want to say the opposite.
If you really care about your old account just do what thyemos write in the sticky thread and be patience (even for months).

But it's important to understand that the admin are only 2 and they are busy...don't send too many pms!
