With the rise in price of bitcoin the number of newbies coming to the forums and mining section at large has gotten out of control and the demand on me as the only active moderator was becoming excessive. Welcome aboard frodocooper by my recommendation as a new moderator to help keep the mining section under control.  Smiley

As a meta post about mining and not strictly about mining this post will be moved after a week or so.

Thanks, NotFuzzyWarm. You're already helping out a great deal by accurately reporting erroneous posts, and we appreciate it. Do keep it up; we moderators need all the help we can get in keeping the forum tidy and useful. Smiley

Welcome. It never occurred to me that a crazy high BTC price would alter the dynamics of forum moderation, but it obviously has.

Best of luck in your new role.

And it's not just people new to mining, the number of scams, trojans, referral spammers and trolls goes up too.

Unlike other forum sections which do NOT moderate scams, I generally nuke anyone who posts obvious trojans and links to scam sites since I feel qualified to make that judgement here. The "legit" mining companies are big enough scams already, we don't need overt scammers in addition.

It's rare for a new member to become staff. Congratulations.
I can see that you guys are doing a lot of work in this section, it's starting to look much better and cleaner.

I have reported suspicious links in the past and they were always moderated, regardless of the section they were in. Phishing links, referrals and such are usually deleted pretty quickly.

Thanks. In fact there was always a lot of work going into this section. The thing is I rarely left a redirection notice when I moved topics all over the place so it was completely transparent to the forum members. The reason I didn't leave them is they pollute the page with nothing but redirection notices since there are far more redirected threads than legit forum topics. I only left redirection notices if the thread I was moving already had traction with a number of other people posting on them. Even then, after a few weeks I would go and delete the redirection notices too.

Threads that have been redirected to another subforum will be done silently if there is only an opening post. Any threads that have been redirected after some responses exist for that post will get a redirection thread message where they were originally posted to make it easier to find for followers of that thread

I guess I've been following this a bit too strictly, then. Grin

Then again, I'm hoping that the increase in redirection notices and locked threads would deter spammers from posting in the Mining sections, and/or cause maybe-spammers to think ten times before posting off-topic or low-value posts. A huge, flashing "THE MODS ARE WATCHING" sign, if you will. Wink
