Hello everyone, its been years the new forum software project funded and we can see just some crappy scripts that one single developer can do.

here's the repository of the project: https://github.com/epochtalk/epochtalk
Millions went to this project, while there is no product. just github files keep getting updated from day to day to kill time.
I think the person who announced (everyone know him) this project is the one who is being working on this project,
expecting that its an open source others developers may help him.

No clarifications where really those millions of dollars of bitcoin went to? Someone is now multi-millionaire  Roll Eyes.

It wasn't millions of dollars when it was spent...

Okay, does this give a valid reason for the developer to fail building a forum even after many years ?
being a developer, maybe you can understand that 4 years of continues development is a lot for just a forum ?

They are still actively working on the project and responding to any suggestions from the community from time to time. Have you worked on a forum the size and scale of epochtalk? Especially the security side of things, that cannot be rushed.

theymos is very likely to be involved heavily and communicating with the developers daily and if he expected anything then he would likely let the Bitcointalk community know as he has done in the past with other issues.

Theymos posted a while ago that he was pretty well the only working on the forum software now.  :/

He spent the million at the rate of $100k per month for four developers.

If I was able to easily identify the source, I would have posted it.  :/

In the interest of SEO, if someone can find and link the posts to back up my two statements, I will award merit for contribution.

Edit:  Found the one where Theymos was spending $100k a month, but haven't found the one where he says he is the only person currently working on the software.

Yeah, that's Slickage's $100k monthly fee. The amounts aren't exact, though. I send approximately the correct amount to an intermediate wallet of my own, and then it gets sent to Slickage via Coinbase.

I think any statement saying theymos was the only person working on the forum software would have been in the context of the current SMF forum.

I read his posts quite often (theymos) and hadn't seen that, OgNasty might be right and he was referring to the current forum. He's likely the only one making changes to the current code. I'll take a look at his posts later on today and see if I can find it as I certainly wasn't aware of it.

This is what I was referring to.  He could be referring to the current forum...

If I had more manpower, then I would prioritize maintaining our own DDoS protection, but with me as the only sysadmin and current-software developer, it's become unsustainable.

As for theymos, it doesn't have any updates for now.
I think it will still take a little longer before it is published.
They're doing their best to provide us better environment in which spammers can't be spoiled. And also to give us a suitable place in which good posters/ authors can give and collaborate with their ideas really well to each and everyone else.

It seems close but far away at the same time. The forum is being developed since 2015 and the GitHub page doesn't have too many commits[1]. But the project isn't completely dead. For example, the merit system is something new and they build something similar for the new software[2], so they still didn't give up. I expect it to be out next year (hopefully).

Yeah, right. But I don't think it will be out next year. Maybe in the year 2020 or 2022 will be the biggest possibility of the launching of epochtalk.
I wish that this one's gonna be perfect for all of us, besides we're the ones who'll gonna run it.
And sooner or later BCT will be on the history as satoshi does.

R u obtuse or simply a certified asshole?

Can u even read a single commit on GitHub?

It is hilarious to what lengths you go for merit hunting.

Theymos is doing what many other successful people do, before their projects collpase.

He is attempting to do everything himself, because he feels that is the best way.

This forum is his baby - you can't blame him for being protective.

GitHub files aren't updated to kill time. If you look at the commits, every commit message has some information along with it which explains what exactly the files are updated for. What scares me is, the last commit  was around July 7th https://github.com/epochtalk/epochtalk/pull/457/commits/91599ad083e33fc0314628fdae9c88f297894760 and not sure if the website is being actively developed.

I mean, activity definitely seems low. But looking at dev history, there may be private repos they are working on.

IF Epoch (the database layer) is related to EpochTalk (which I'm assuming it would be) the last commit wasn't July. It was commited to 12 days ago.

Yes, you're correct. The last commit was indeed 13 days ago...I don't know what's stopping theymos from getting it done for just once and then migrate to the new forum completely. Looking at the new developments coming to this forum, I doubt he's planned a release anytime soon.
