Haven't we learnt from history that banning people from saying something Never ever works ? I know it's annoying but now instead of "reserved" people say "interested" or another one word like "cool"

I hated the reserved thing but really who cares, it's part of the free culture of this forum.



I just delete those too, don't bother me. People will learn once they get annoyed enough at having their posts deleted.

And you guys that keep posting reserved in this thread, you really know how to run a joke into the ground. It was funny the first time, tenth time is just dumb. If you're gonna troll at least be original and creative about it.

Stop posting reserved, watching, subbed, or any other variation of placeholder. It's getting ridiculous, if you don't have anything to say, then don't post. If you're only doing it so you can follow the thread, stop it and use the watchlist instead (all you have to do is hit the watch button, it's even less effort than posting crappy replies). And don't start replacing them with one word comments like "cool" or "like" either, those will be next to go if it gets out of hand.

Report reserved posts and their variations when you see them, they will get deleted.  

Thanks for deleting my 2 reserved posts that were saving slots so I could expand the OP as needed 

now I have to have multiple parts in 1 post not separated out neatly

once again

thanks !

I always wondered if it's really ok to report those  kind of posts.
I guess you mods spot them fairly easily so would it be really helpful to report them or it will just add to the wasted time for checking my report also , for a post that might already be deleted?

Also , there are people who don't learn , do you have any plans for a temp ban one guys who keep posting those undercover "reserved" posts?

Couldn't you just think of something else to say instead? I'm sure you'd be safe typing "I'm very interested in this coin" etc which you could just edit later.

I'd argue this is a valid complaint given there is a character limit for posts which I've managed to run into a couple times, on top of the obvious organizational benefits in having a "hard" separation between information. Maybe reserved posts shouldn't be removed if there's a certain flag in the post like "Reserved. [OP]" If abused, temp ban.

Well I guess that's different, but you could've put reserved for future info or whatever or just put three other comments there which would be safer. Maybe just put a note to the mod to not delete them.

This is the one legitimate time to do that with SMF character limits, but you should post something besides reserved with all the reserved spam going on lately. I don't remember deleting yours but it might have been me, even if one mod realizes that it's legitimate, not all will.

I've been a global moderator (which is the entire forum, includes alt currencies) for over two years. I just don't post much. Spam in alt currencies is getting out of hand lately, so more moderation, so getting noticed more.

Updated the OP to add a note about giveaways and other forms of promoting spamming.

Good news. Can we please ban begging posts as well? They're the worst of all. If you want a coin, mine it or buy it!

Those are already against the rules. Report it when you see it.

Also, giveaways are no longer allowed due to the high volume of spam it generates, this is a discussion forum. Incentivizing people to post in your thread will result in your thread being locked. This also means no "Post 'interested' to claim x" or anything along those lines. See here for more details. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=434310.0

not sure if this already asked, but is there suggestion for how to manage a giveaway alternatively? cant there be a giveaway subforum??

its an important part of the distribution and marketing of a new alt coin... I guess now it must be handled through other social media channels?

+1 for giveaway sub-forum (im not smart enough to know why its a bad idea) Cheesy

Although a relative newbie here, I have noticed that the number of threads with giveaways etc clutters the forum considerably.

However I can appreciate that these giveaways are an essential part of marketing for a coin, and moreover will be expected to happen for any coins with a premine.  It would therefore make sense to me to have a giveaway subforum where these can take place without cluttering the main alt coin forum itself.

These coins will need to be marketed, and it would seem the sensible move to allow this to continue here in a structured manner rather than drive this activity away from the site to other locations.  If coins are to be launched here, then it would seem sensible that all other information about a coin should be available here too, its just about keeping that information tidy.  Can a subforum for giveaways etc be considered?
