That's my point if the forum has enough money already. Why not having a free vip/donator lottery? That could be exciting.

Does it's possible to donate in multiple part ?

For example, 5 BTC right now, and 5 BTC later for the 10 BTC total of "Donator" rank. (Same question for the VIP)

And does if a "Donator" want to get "VIP" he just have to send 40 BTC more, or he have to repay 50 BTC in total ?

Thanks in advance.

Theymos has said earlier in this thread that if you donate 10 BTC to become a donator, then you can donate 40 more coins later to become a VIP. I'm not sure enough about my answer to say that 5BTC now and 5 BTC later would get you a Donator Tag. My guess would be yes, however Theymos would be able to tell you yes/no for certain much quicker than I could.

I know of at least one person who got VIP with out paying. Do something beyond great for BTC and I bet you can get one too.

Thanks for encouraging me.  Smiley

Are you talking about Hal Finney?
He did much more for Bitcoin than receiving the first transaction...

MagicalTux got "free" VIP status for hosting the forum for a long time, too. I think that him plus Hal are the only free donator statuses I gave out. You'd have to do something pretty extraordinary to convince me to give out another free one.

I don't see any point in donating 5 BTC now and then 5 BTC later. You won't get Donator status until you've donated a total of at least 10 BTC. It'd be better for you to earn interest on the 5 BTC somewhere until you're ready to pay 10 BTC. The forum isn't in need of money.

I'm willing to bet 5 BTC that if a 1 BTC or less donation option is offered while Bitcoin is under $200 USD, there will be a scammer with that 1 BTC status within the first four months. I'd have to have some sort of neutral third party determine if the person actually performed a scam or not, though, I'm open to suggestions.

Also, if someone wants to run the names of all the Donator/Scammers and collect the following, I'd be interested in it:
1) Name of Donator/VIP
2) Date they registered their account
3) Date they purchased Donator/VIP
4) Date they appear to have first scammed (best estimate might be needed)
5) Date they appear to have gotten the scammer tag (best estimate might be needed)
6) URL of scammer thread

Here, I'll do R-:

6) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=94734.20

My guess is that R- would fit the mold of the typical Donator/VIP scammer and the admin/mod reaction to it.

Here's how it goes:
Someone registers and then buys Donator/VIP within the first three months of their account if not under one month, performs some regular business and enjoys their status, then within four months after getting VIP, totally screws over some poor soul willing to do a hundred bucks worth of work for them and doesn't receive a scammer tag till 6 months later.

That said, the trust system helps immensely in getting early warning signals in. As Thomas Jefferson once said on liberty, "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." The trust system is liberty and a free market. I'd rather be exposed to a slew of negative ratings by individuals upset over something someone said than see people getting scammed by Donators/VIPs/whatever the new 1 BTC status would be.

Oh man, I forgot about that thread, Mushroomized now owes me 3.5x10^84 BTC.

So did you ever get paid Mush? See, she took a loan from me for 10 BTC, and she said she would have paid me back a long time ago, but she never got paid for some work. Now due to the terms of our loan that we set as a joke at the time, she now owes me 1.8 Million BTC, as we set the terms that 200% interest would compound daily after our initial 1 month agreement.

So... if Mush doesn't get her BTC soon, I'm going to have to break her other leg. And trust me, she doesn't need any more deformities. R, could you live with yourself knowing that you are making some poor hideous woman even more hideous as she falls deeper and deeper into debt?

BTW, Mush, it will be 3.6 Million BTC owed in 1 hour and 20 minutes, so you better hurry the hell up.

Back in the day we bought the donator/VIP slots to either help out with the new forum software or to get access to the "donator" forum. Now since there is not going to be new software, and the "donator" forum has been severely vandalized by non donators to the point of it being worth less than the rest of the forum the only reason to donate is for vanity or status. I would highly suspect anyone donating to the forum now and really wonder what they are up to.
Well, for you as a VIP, that might be true.
As a donator, I unconditionally donated 10 BTC to the forum.
Unconditionally really is the magical word here, since everything else could not be considered a donation in my opinion but rather a bounty, payment, whatever. I did not request anything in return.

About the "vandalization" of the donator forum, I basically agree.

Here's a list of the last 10 donators to the forum.
Only one of them (guess which one) has an overall negative trust rating and seems a little suspicious.
So, yes, this is in fact a vanity title.
