Help me, please, I’m trying to insert a signature, but links are removed.
Is there a problem in the signature or there is some limit?

maybe eliminating the title and coins under the name could potentially avoid this perception issue while still providing the functionality. Provide the paid option to allow lower restrictions, fine, but is there a need to add the rank to every post, PM, etc. that the account does?
People like to be recognized, and the special title is essentially a recognition that a small amount of money has been donated.  

Well this is my issue... is this "fee" supposed to be for recognition, or like theymos stated, is it supposed to be just for enabling a newbie to post images and lift some restrictions?  theymos stated this was not supposed to be recognition of a donation.



I'm not sure what recognition being a copper member gets you. The title sounds pretty shitty and the benefits are pretty crappy as well (though they're not meant to be anything other than a way for Newbs to whitelist themselves) and anyone who thinks othewrwise is probably a little foolish or naive. However, the (potential) higher donator ranks such as Silver/Gold/Platinum (if they ever come) will be more 'prestigious' I guess.

How hilariousandco have gold membership as I can't see it there?

I thought the same but it turns out to be a custom title. As a Global Moderator, I think he can use any title he wishes. I asked above:

I just did it as a bit of a joke because I knew it would pique people's interest and get them excited (or worried if you're an account farmer).

I think a lot of us would be interested in this. I would certainly buy it regardless of what extra perks it gives just to show support for the forum. I was going to get the Copper one but I'm holding out to see what happens. It's just a question of persuading theymos that it is a good idea and enough people want it.


I think it would be beneficial for numerous reasons. Lots of people have seemed to express interest in donating to the forum if only the value was lower, so why not give them the option with a few perks to say thanks. If we allow users to say have a Senior-sized signature for Silver and Hero-sized one for Gold etc it will likely put a stop to people buying those accounts instead so it's win-win for everyone in my opinion. There's currently a huge black market for accounts and people are sadly making a business out of shitposting farming and - even worse - hacking accounts so why not give the people what they want and take away money from account farmers and hackers in the process.

Me too, I think signature limit for Newbie and Copper Member are same. Once you wear signature for another rank, the message "Links removed" will show up.

Its good start, if you really need to disable restrictions you have to pay. Too bad I didnt able to check on this earlier..

By popular demand, newbies can now pay to have some of their restrictions lifted. If you pay the fee, you become a Copper Member, and you can post images. That's the main point of this: allowing newbies to post images. Additionally (and these might change depending on how things go), Copper Members currently have these bonuses:

I just bought this, waiting for the confirmation.  I'd like to thank you for adding this feature.  This account is an organizational account for a project/organization that is about to be announced, and I've been careful to post things that are consistent with the organization's mission and goals.  This will allow me to post announcements, with images, without having to either do it on my main account (BenOnceAgain), or posting a bunch of content unrelated to the mission of the project/organization.

I appreciate this new feature.

Much better, this is good policy to avoid some newbie scammer which launching new ico project and the main goal is to get fund from the investors and then run away took all the investments. By this i think only serious people who have real and good project will pay for this to make their threat much more interesting in the eyes of the people.

In the contrary, I would say it will enable more shady projects to get a good looking ANN and trick more people for the very small cost it has. It might reduce spam partially, but without any metric it will be hard to confirm.

if you trying insert signature code directly,it have only a limit on newbie on character or letter that you put on your sinature code box, waiting for jr member rank to make this and completely shown.

It doesn't automatically adjust, but I update it every now and then. Same for the evil-IP registration fee.

You have exceeded the limit of 30 personal messages per day. Buying a Copper membership may increase your limit.

That came up. But never sent 30 messages😂

I'm facing this issue, as I'm newbie and translated an ann in french.

And when I posted my ann, I saw the picture wont show

I was happy to see this thread, but then I saw "low fees", thats 25$, not really low...



$25 is realy nothing. As a translator your earn $1500/monthly

I've followed the link https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=credit;promote

But I can't see the form? How do you confirm I have paid?

Take a close look here and read carefully what is written
Quote
Copper - 0.00xxxxx BTC: Allows you to...
-snip-
Pay to the Bitcoin address xxxxxxxxxx. Once your transaction has 1 confirmation, revisit this page and then use the form which will appear in order to wear your new membership. Your transaction will not be registered until it has 1 confirmation. Bitcoin network fees and exchange/wallet withdrawal fees will not count toward your payment.

Is the btc address linked to my account? I thought it's shared for all users.

I do not know about it, but so far I really like this new feature.

Would it not be possible to peg it to fiat (out of fairness and so we don't have another vip/donator rank situation)?

Are there any plans to implement more ranks yet as the Copper one seems to have been fairly popular and higher ranks with bigger and better perks I'm sure would be even more so?

The address given is unique to you, hence how we know you've paid.
