Difficulty estimate fixed: For quite a while the difficulty estimate on bitcoinx.com/charts was broken (data and graphs). Thanks to Jonathan for notifying me. It should be fixed now and be relatively accurate right after retargeting, too.

The estimate from blockexplorer.com is used: indirectly for the first 504 blocks after retargeting, otherwise direct.


please peer review:

Quote
            btcBlocksSinceRetarget = btcBlockHeight % 2016;
            estimateSmear = 504.0  # blocks
            est = self.get_estimate()  # http://blockexplorer.com/q/estimate
            if btcBlocksSinceRetarget < estimateSmear:
                est = ( curDifficulty * (estimateSmear - btcBlocksSinceRetarget) / estimateSmear +
                          (est * 1.0 * btcBlocksSinceRetarget) / estimateSmear )

                          (est * 1.0 * btcBlocksSinceRetarget) / estimateSmear )

The math seems to make sense and the chart looks good.

Thanks for fixing this and for the acknowledgement.

I sent you another small tip, I really appreciate !

Could you raise TOP 10 topic to 15 (or more)

I watch your website about 5 time a day and still feel like I'm missing a lot of interesting thread.

I also suggest that you move the top 15 discussions to the top instead of the news section that seems to get outdated very fast.

Thanks for being my morning front page.

thank you for the feedback!  Cool

depending on forum traffic the lower top threads can get quite random. but let's just give it a try. will make the suggested changes in the next couple of days.

done. not sure I like the current layout, though, might change.

would it be better if bitcoinx.com would lead directly to the bitcoin charts and dashboard page?

Thing can always be changed but I find it better this way.  Doesn't look like a "dashboard" though....

The chart I look at the most regularly is http://bitcoin.sipa.be/speed-lin-2k.png

The added 5 topic are very interesting,  The top 10 was mostly just feedback of the hive-mind crazes.

probably I will go for it together with a little site restructuring but will take some time.

I'm happy with it so far, too.


thought about more forum indicators lately...  number of posts or maybe a mood indicator based on a count of positive / negative words ("BUY BUY BUY") Wink

Has there ever been a 5-digit (i..e, 10,000 or higher) score before?

Not sure what your indicator would read for that one though.  Smiley

Suggestion, to remove hive-mind and noobs kind of threads.

New topic of interest. Thread of less than 1 week with more than X (say 5), established member posting.

The rational is that a new noob threads will get replied by few established members who'll point to the obvious, end of the story.

Current results tend to give to much score to old threads that turned into chat room with subject close to 4 cuils of away from the OP.  http://cuiltheory.wikidot.com/what-is-cuil-theory Wink

Gold down, BTC up come to mind.  I was among the first to call bullshit on this relation and never thought it would last for 100 pages.

longer time frame would definitely be interesting.
