The Complete List of Replies to Stupid Meta Posts
(or, the FAQ)
Credit: Alt A's by Raize
Q: 'You have to wait 360 seconds before posting again'?! [or: PLEASE FIX THESE FORUM BUGS!!111!ONE!!!]
A: This is a newbie limit. The Bitcointalk++ script by jackjack adds a button for saving posts (read: no more CTRL-C!)

Q: How do I remove posts from "Show new replies to your posts"?
A: You can't. Use the Watchlist instead (see newbie readme).
Alt A: You can edit your post and uncheck "Notify me of replies" under "Additional Options". Alternatively, there should be a link in the email you received.

Q: WTF?! WHY IS SELLING ACCOUNTS ALLOWED?! THIS FORUM IS SO BAD IMMA CRY
A: Calm down. If the forum were to ban selling accounts, then they would have no way of enforcing it; it would be pointless...

Q: OMG i getted -trust moderetors plese remove im not scammer i swear
A: The trust system is not moderated. Deal with it.
Alt A: The trust system forces accountability. If someone find you untrustworthy, you should talk to them directly about it. You might be surprised to find out how reasonable those on the Default Trust list actually are.

Q: 'Show unread posts since last visit' is clogged with scamcoin announcements!
A: Ignore the alt-crypto board: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=400656.0

Q: How do I change my avatar?
A: (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
Alt A: Stolen entirely from a Google search:
Quote
Select a photo on your own computer to use as your avatar. Crop it to be square.
Click on the Profile tab available on every page of the Forum.
Click on "Forum Profile" on the left of the Profile screen under "Modify Profile."
Click on the radio button next to "Upload an avatar."
Click on the Browse button at the end of the empty field next to "Personalized Picture."
Browse on your computer to the photo you have chosen.
Click on the file name of your photo.
At the very bottom of the page, click on "Change profile" to complete the operation.

Q: why is vip donations so expsive its liek thousands of dollaz
A: Donation prices will never change; that would be unfair.
Alt A: The forum isn't hurting that bad for money, there may be new donation levels in the future. The likelihood of lower-level donation levels being allowed means a higher likelihood of people using the clout they obtain from those changes to scam others, as evidenced from the high level of donator/VIP scammers over the last several years.

qwk even compiled a list of them here, but I don't think it includes Tradefortress at the present time:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=38071.msg3276232#msg3276232
Q: When I click 'new', it doesn't take me to the newest post!
A:
It's a bug in EasyList for Adblock Plus. All links (including "anchor" links) are blocked when immediately inside of a post <td>:
Code:
bitcointalk.org##td[style="padding: 1px 1px 0 1px;"] > a

Complain to EasyList.

It's impossible for an Adblock Plus filter to block all of the forum's ads. Some ads can be individually blocked, but not all forum ads in general. They should stop trying or they're going to keep breaking things for their users.


Q: Some stupid question about the trust system not appearing/working
A: You have to trust someone's trust ratings to be able to see them under 'Trusted replies'.

Q: What do these shiny coins under my name mean?
A: That you're an idiot and didn't read the sticky.

Q: Why does this: happen?
A: Like it says, it might just be an invalid image (images must not be larger than 2.5 MB)

Q: Why isn't my activity increasing?
A: The way activity is calculated:
Code:
time = number of two-week periods in which you've posted since your registration
activity = min(time * 14, posts)
Activity is updated every 30 minutes.

Q: WTF mods?! My post got deleted?!?!?!?!?
A: It was probably offtopic, or you might have posted in a self-moderated thread.
Alt A: Or it might just be moved to a forum like Meta!

Q: I want to be a moderator!!!!1!!one!
A: If you want to be a moderator, report many posts with accuracy. You will be noticed.

Q: How many ads does [insert name of company here] have?!
A: https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adinfo

Q: Can you please add [insert feature here]?
A: No, but the bitcointalk++ userscript might be able to or might already have that feature.

Theymos raised the max image size to 2.5Mb will link quote as soon as I find it.

*edit*

1.5 does really suck, 2.5 would be perfect

OK, I increased it to 2.5.

Eitherway man the proxy thing is annoying...  Undecided

Whoops, just noticed I made a grammatical error: (fixed it in my post, might want to fix in the fourth question down in your list)
Quote
...If someone finds you untrustworthy...

Also, I did just remember, mods might move some topics to "Meta" as I indicated or also "Off-topic". They also merge threads occasionally. They occasionally do delete, but it's very rare and if they've deleted your post, it's one of three things: completely nonsensical, a duplicate post of something that is already heavily under conversation and has its own thread (which you should have posted to), or it's a thread you should have known better than to post (abnormally troll). I'm often surprised by how *little* they delete.

They also merge threads occasionally.

Not sure if theymos or justmoon ever use this feature, but for mods it is disabled. But we do split threads from time to time.

I stand corrected, then. Maybe its not possible they are doing this. I know there's an option for "Merge any topic" that can be set for Moderators, but it might not be as easy to "undo" as the "Split any topic" option. It's also probably far more common to need to split a topic than merge due to the misunderstandings that can come from merging in a comment/post to an existing topic.

Merging is disabled for the most part, but there is a way to merge topics and I do use it occasionally, usually when someone makes duplicates of threads in different child boards and they all have replies that I don't want to delete. And yes, theymos knows about the workaround I use to do it.

You're right, that's what I get for posting while still half asleep.  I think my reading comprehension is at a 2nd grade level for the first 30 minutes after I wake up.
