This is a good thing because it encourages not only spammers but all those who really want to post quality posts.

One, you're wearing a signature so you're disqualified

@BTCforJoe, I suggest adding an explicit written rule disqualifying people who make a patent demonstration of having failed to read the rules.  The length of disqualification should be proportional to how outrageously the rules were ignored.  In any case where it’s obvious that a bounty-grubber is blindly groping for a place to drop a username and Bitcoin address, disqualification may as well be permanent.

The delightful irony is that those who fail to read the rules will miss this rule, too.

The entire point of the campaign is to promote quality posting, not providing spammers with additional funds (and merits) for low quality posts and the ability to read is pretty much a necessity. I second the idea for a disqualification for the future.

I agree with you two. That will make merits and funds to be given only to people wanting to improve. I consider myself one of those, since i'm still new and i want to constantly learn more about Bitcoin and at the same time improve my writing and creativity, vital skills to do what i want in the future.

I really like this forum and i want to be reach the level of a respectable member one day. I will work hard for it  Cheesy

From the “style guide” department, a tip for Newbies who wish to improve their post quality:  Please learn to trim quotes down to the part pertinent to your reply (without unfairly removing context or cherry-picking, of course).  There is an art and a science to properly arranging quotes to show the flow of conversation in a way which is informative, yet concise.

It is a common newbie mistake to quote a long post in its entirety, then tack on a short reply which addresses one paragraph thereof.  This applies not only to forums, but also to mailing lists and Usenet.

this account 'PUGMAN'  is a hacked account that has been bought from TOR. im the original Pugman since 2014

This is not the thread to make this claim. Whether it is true or false, that is irrelevant to where you are posting this. I see you posted a thread about hacked accounts in the altcoin discussion, this is also not the proper place for these types of threads. If you would like to have your claim investigated then you need to make a post in the Meta section with acceptable proof that you are the original owner of the account. It seems you claim your account was hacked at December 17th, 2017 and December 16th, 2017 Pugman applied for the ChipMixer campaign.

Also, read this sticky about recovering hacked/lost account to proceed properly and effectively. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=497545.0

I have been in regular conversation with Pugman for a few weeks now, and I would hate for this to be the case. I can't say to any change in behavior, since I would've only have come in contact with Pugman after the date you allege to have lost control of the account. Do not follow them around the forum and harass them, simply prove your case and you will find this is much more effective.

Please do not break forum rules and do not repeatedly post, if you feel the need then edit your original post. If you are the original Pugman then you will either be able to prove it or you will need to accept that we cannot believe you without proof.

I wish I could participate but it's around a month I've been participating in a signature campaign which gives tokens after the end of ICO. So I'll have to wear my signature.

This is great idea and I think we need such more voluntary posts and contest to have a great forum.

Thanks for your enthusiasm! Be sure to bookmark this thread (or add it to your watchlist) and join us for a chance to win when your signature campaign ends.

Welcome to the challenge. As this week's round is already closed, you will be included in the next week's round (Round 2), starting on Sunday. Good luck!

This is a good thing because it encourages not only spammers but all those who really want to post quality posts.

As others have mentioned, you two are not eligible to participate in this challenge, as you are currently wearing paid signatures. I may take @nullius's suggestion to disqualify applicants who clearly haven't read the rules (which defeats the very purpose of why this challenge was created in the first place). Because these applicants clearly haven't understood (or accepted) the challenge in all of its glory and willfully neglected the rules, the disqualification period should be somewhat long. I'm thinking until 3 full rounds have passed. Thoughts, everyone?

I'm a huge fan of SegWit adoption, and if the challenge gains more attraction, I will definitely include a clause that requires all participants to use a SegWit address.

Unfortunately, there is no way to tell whether or not a P2SH “3” address is Segwit-nested.  Perhaps you may push specifically for what I call Bravo Charlie addresses”.  Although that could be a bit inconvenient for some of us who are using nested addresses for the transition period, I think it is important to raise user awareness about the Bitcoin address format of the future.  Many people do not yet understand Bech32; see also the advertisement at the top of my recent post on the topic.  (Far from my first post on the topic.)

Unfortunately, I think the technical specs of bech32 addresses are way beyond what we'll receive as the average participant to this challenge. As much as I want to promote SegWit adoption, I don't want to deter users from partaking in this challenge due to their neglect for wanting to learn more about proper SegWit implementation. Perhaps in the future when Bravo Charlie One addresses become more of a widespread and known format, we can add more relevant instructions on how to follow the format, but until then, I'm trusting that applicants will take the time to properly create and use SW-enabled wallets for this challenge.



I am adding an escrow address that will hold the funds for this challenge: 37ZhBrGgw6BSghMQnPi4ixdmRBLxBTAXCf (blockchain)

You can view the balance at any given time. If you'd like to make a donation to this challenge, you can do so at that address. It will only ever be used to reward winners of this challenge, and every transaction initiated from that address will be recorded in this thread.

Would you like me to send my sponsorship money to the escrow address? It seems it is well funded already, but I'm wondering if I should save on transaction fees and send it directly or fund the escrow address; your call Joe.

It's entirely up to you. Transaction fees are the lowest they've been in months, so that shouldn't be an issue, but it's completely up to you how you want to handle payments for second place. I have no trust issues with you, and I'm sure that nobody else does, either, so I personally don't see any problems with you sending the prize directly to the second place winner.



very good idea

please let me know if I can donate some merits to a winner

Thank you, JPR! I'll add you to the Backup Merit Sponsor list and send you a message if there is ever a need for sMerits to be distributed. Perhaps you can view some of the participants' latest posts and randomly award them a merit here and there as you see posts that you deem meritorious? This could potentially become another reason for forum members to join this campaign; to randomly receive merits from supporters of this challenge. It's up to you, but thank you so much for becoming a merit sponsor!

I agree with you two. That will make merits and funds to be given only to people wanting to improve.

See my previous post for my feedback on the matter regarding applicants who clearly have not read the rules.

Regarding bounty-grubbers, I don't want to become a sig-nazi; I can actually foresee some participants switching between this challenge and paid signature campaigns, which is fine. I'm just glad that they'll be mindful for at least the duration that they're a part of this challenge, and I'm hoping that their persistence in creating quality posts will carry over to their posts if they so choose to join a paid sig camp. However, I think that if they drop this challenge throughout a round that they are registered, by way of applying a paid signature midway through the round, then they should be permanently disqualified from joining, as that shows a blatant disregard/disrespect towards the efforts that so many are putting forth to support this challenge. Fair?



Joe, I'm not promising when and how much I'll send but I'll surely do so at least once. Am sort of busy right now and in a month's time, after I get free and if this campaign is still running, I'd further provide help. I might send you some funds over tomorrow if possible, I still haven't decided how much. 

this account 'PUGMAN'  is a hacked account that has been bought from TOR. im the original Pugman since 2014

Please follow the advice and instructions as @bill gator has recommended.

However, I will say that your accusations are concerning a bit, as @pugman has made a monetary donation towards the funds for this challenge. If your allegations are true, then it's creating a personal moral dilemma for me, as I do not condone the hacking/buying of BCT accounts; I would be obliged to refund pugman's contribution.

That's all I have to say about this matter at this time, but if you would like to provide proof of your allegations, please PM me with the details. Until this is done, I will carry on with business as usual, as blind allegations without documentation carry no substance. Please PM me if you'd like to discuss this matter in further detail.

We have additional sponsors!

Please help me welcome our newest supporters and sponsors of this challenge:

JackpotRacer: Backup Merit Sponsor
JackpotRacer has committed to providing merits for winners if current merit sources ever run out. (reference)

pugman: Cash Sponsor
pugman has sponsored and sent a transaction for 0.004BTC to be utilized for any way that is best for this challenge's participants, whether it is for future winners or bonuses. (reference: 12)

Kemarit: Backup Merit Sponsor
Kemarit has committed to providing merits for winners if current merit sources ever run out. (reference)



A HUGE thank you to the sponsors of this campaign! I initially thought that it would just be me and @bill gator hosting and carrying this challenge, but the positive response and support has been amazing. Thank you, BitcoinTalk community. You guys are pretty amazing!

thx for accepting my offer. very good idea to reward postings during the contest.  I will try to follow the contest and the postings. in case you see some postings which you think should get merits please let me know and I will reward those.

best of luck

Don't forget to apply for Round 2 (begins Sunday at approximately 9:00PM GMT -6)

Round 2 application cutoff is on Monday at 9:00PM (GMT -6).

We have almost two days remaining for this round, and giving the participants' posts a brief scan, I'm pleasantly surprised with how much they're trying (most of them, at least Tongue)!

I will make sure to provide my personal feedback about each of the participant's best posts for the week, and tips on improvement (based on my [mysterious] criteria) when the round ends.

Great job, everyone!

NOTE: I will be revising and adding a few new definitive rules, so make sure to read the updated top post upon the start of Round 2.

Just to clarify does the round begin (aka the time for the posting to be counted) begin from that time or the applications?
