It would be a nice place to get all the mybitcoin stuff in one place.

But seriously why no security subforum?  Security practices are crap for most bitcoin users.

It would be a good place for people to get security information like why storing your wallet yourself can be way more secure than online, and how to do that securely.

it can be the one stop place to look for new trojan news and scam sites.

but more importantly it can be the one stop place for security breach information.

+1 for this idea...  I had some BTC with MyBitcoin for a few various projects.  Had I been able to be following a security board I may have gotten the warnings a little sooner and gotten some of it out.

I think having a subforum like this would be beneficial, however, I do think it would need close and careful moderation... The ability of a competitor to commit slander or libel against their competition would be high.

After some thought it's a little surprising that there isn't one already.

Definitely a good idea.

Hey I've already +1'ed this before...

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

I absolutely agree.  Also, check out this idea.  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=34506.0  They sort of go hand in hand with Bitcoin's needs at the moment.

And still there is no security subforum, while the one for alternative block chains did get added... Sad

lol i get the frownie.

I do agree the alternative coins are a security issue, and most people shouldnt jump on them so fast and the developers, while they can keep the exact release day secret, probably should post some of their more radical ideas for changes to get input on how they might be exploited. They dont even have to announce that they are making a coin, just say "what would be the ramifications if bitcoin changed it's block rate?..."

yeah I agree with all that, i still dont agree with your last post.. but that is a different subject.


WHERE IS MY SECURITY SUB FORUM!!!!!

I also agree with the original post exactly as stated, and have nothing novel to add to the conversation.

What if we turn this thread into the conversations we would have in a security sub-forum to show there is enough volume of discussion to justify a new thread.
