I'm interested in quite a variety of things, and I enjoy taking part in discussions about them. I'm having trouble in raising any interest in a few of them here, and I'm a bit surprised, as I would have thought others would be interested. Some of the topics are -

Domain names -
Domain names are virtual assets, and also they are essential for the building of a website. Several registrars accept and pay in Bitcoin both for registrations, and for the sale and purchase of domain names. The value of Crypto domain names are increasing at the moment, and I would have thought this would be a good basis for discussion.

Bitcoin memorabilia-
Bitcoin is maturing, and there are many promotional items from its past. Some of these are collectible. There is an abundance of tee-shirts, hats, coins and similar items, but there have been some unusual items such as the Bitcoin knife, the wax seal for paper wallets, and the sneakers. I started a gallery here - http://bitcoinuncovered.com/bitcoin-memorabilia/ , and I would be grateful for some help in finding other items.

Gaming asset exchanges -
Gamers have been trading assets such as weapons and ammunition for some time, but I am starting to see an increase in the use of crypto-currencies to facilitate this. I'm not a gamer, but I'd be interested in discussions about the use of Bitcoin as a payment method.

There are some other topics, but those will do for the moment. I'm not sure which board to use for these discussions, I've tried a few starts, but the threads drop fairly quickly, and once they arrive on page 3, then they are dead. Is it just that there is no interest in the topics here on BitcoinTalk?

Collecting domain names is so 2000.   I don't reward people for being greedy - I just find an alternate domain name - there are always alternates.  Smiley

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

You could say the same about any asset - including Bitcoin and gold. However, my point is more about discussions where they relate to Bitcoin.

Right now people are attempting to post moderately longer/interesting posts in an effort to gain merit. Most of these posts are lacking real substance and are unnecessarily long and tedious to read - as a matter of fact, the post I am writing right now fills this criteria.

The topics you posted look like they will not be really easy to converse about, and will require at least a little effort. This is the negative side of the Merit system.

Those people are mistaken, the length of a post is irrelevant. Quality > Quantity

Posts should require some effort to talk about, they should engage the community. This is not a negative.

Hi Jet Cash, regarding Bitcoin memorabilia, there is a lot of interest on this forum. You'll find most of it in the Collectibles board...go to Marketplace > Goods > Collectibles.

There are many auctions and sales, not as much general discussion but the discussion is welcome there. A lot of the talk is related to physical cryptocurrency coins, Casascius coins being the first and original. But you can also find threads for art, and other types of memorabilia.

Good luck hunting around there!

Thanks for posting that - I need to have a look at all of the sub-forums.
