Things are getting ever more cluttered in the custom hardware section. It's hard to find specific information. Would it be possible to get custom sub forums for at minimum asicminer, avalon, bitfury, bfl?

..

Maybe only do it with each company that has shipped products (proven chips) aka asicminer, avalon, bitfury, bfl ? Once a company has proven chips (chips in the wild) then they can get their own forum

Just move BFL to scam accusations... everything that is posted about them. That clear it up.

Dogie trust abuse, spam, bullying, conspiracy posts & insults to forum members. Ask the mods or admins to move Dogie's spam or off topic stalking posts to the link above.

Than every new ASIC Producer that pops up needs to get a own board immediately as well, if it's legit or not.

Otherwise that could be counted as unfair endorsement of particular companies by the forum.

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update

I was going to suggest this as well... but maybe a sub-forum for "BTC Miner Companies".. and let them trash that one with countless threads about pre-news announcements and shit.. perhaps even have one main company thread sticky'd up top if they donate to the forum since they are essentially getting free advertising from a large community..

Or if all else fails at least enforce a one thread rule on the current forum.. .much like what happened with all the BFL bullshit last year.. merge all threads into one and enforce it..

I don't see it as such a problem, just some companies are abusing the board by opening up a needless amount of threads just to bump their name up to the top when they have nothing of any importance or any valid contribution to bring to the table; i.e. polluting the forum with scammy marketing methods.

Delete all but the main thread unless the associated thread adds something helpful. Currently they don't.

Aside from that it's the BFL haters swamping the board with irrelevant resentment . I mean, I understand the discontent, but another Josh is a muppet thread is unnecessary, the guy is more than capable of preventing people from purchasing from Butterfly Labs himself.

No the donation thing will be equally abused. Let them survive on their own merit, or the DIYers won't stand a chance.

Well that's a shame. There's 8 bfl threads, and 8 avalon threads on page 1 alone. It would really benefit from some segregation.

Unfair endorsement? Is this an actual rule? I think Theymos can choose to support whatever he likes.
