So we have people working on distributed markets, exchanges. How about a forum? reddit is becoming nazi with the banning of /r/girlsgonebitcoin and others (such as the subreddits created by violentacrez). What about a reddit style, anonymous, p2p, distributed, extensible forum system, that is truly user moderated? In fact, this forum can be the umbrella for all other types of apps, such as markets, and exchanges, they will just be a extension of the forum, and users who need such functions, can just install an extension and obtain the functionality.

User moderation will end up in chaos. The rest sounds like a nice idea. The problem is that most user probably will stick to this forum.

How so? craigslist and reddit are nearly entirely user moderated, except in rare cases where supermods step in and often result in unfair bans.

I guess you'd need some kind of captcha, otherwise everybody will put their old gpu's out mining spam and moderating the crap out of it.

That's easily avoided, a simple "strike" system will do. If you get too many peer moderated strikes, your account get banned for a period of time.

Also, I think "account" would be a valuable thing, basically you get more trust/privilege/moderation/post per day etc... if you have a long account age without being banned. One ban would set your account back a lot.

Basically, a newly generated account would be worthless, can't post until online for x hours, can't enter "hidden forums", can't moderate etc... People can set up advanced forums, that only "aged" and well behaved accounts could enter.

The way it generally works is a WOT (Web of Trust). Each user trusts certain other users to moderate the forum (and of course is allowed to moderate the forum themself, as it's stored on their personal computer anyways). The client automatically accepts moderations by people of high "trust". "Trust" is passed on; e.g. if I trust you 0.9 and you trust someone else 0.9, I then trust that someone else 0.81. Above a certain threshold, users are considered moderators.

This ways, each user is free to pick their own set of moderators.

That Osiris seems fit the requirement here, although it has crashed on me a few times already.

There is a few Bitcoin forums on there, but doesnt appear to be any online nodes at the moment..

Osiris is a huge resource hog, even more one than Bitcoin itself. I moderated one of those forums once, but the pain it inflicted upon my computer was just too great to bear eventually.

The biggest problem of Osiris right now is that the two devs are busy with other projects. (they are getting money from them)
They were working for the v1.0 of it, to be released open source.
It wasn't open source before because of the spam/dos attack problems (the project started before the first release of Bitcoin)
They were trying to find a solution for it ...

Anyway, it has a huge potential, I really hope that they'll find the time to complete and release the first open source release (v1.0)

It (Osiris) is like 90% there.. it'd be a shame to throw in the towel at this stage..

Oh well, cant deny them a steady income from other more profitable projects Smiley
