Why not to make a special subforum for giveaways? It will be good for everyone.

Complaining about having a lot of active users is the most ridiculous thing ever. Most websites/forums wish they had this many active users. Using an entirely new forum for each altcoin does not work, since everything will get way to scattered then.

That is why I think banning giveaways is not a good idea at all. It is a good way to gather some interest for a new coin. It is also a good way to get some coins to start with if you are late with mining.

I think you should just make a subforum for giveaways, that will not be included in the recent threads list, if that's what's bothering you.

I agree with the decision, please, the point of the Alt Coin section of Bitcointalk was so that you could have basic conversation about whatever coins you wanted here. Things like in depth coin support and discussion, and giveaways are far better off on their own respective coin's forum. Its getting way out of control here, and we thought that just allowing for a little bit organization would help, but the effects of incentivized posting is spamming the forum, and its spilling over to the rest of the boards.

Seems like a good idea. It was getting out of control and it's encouraging them even more to create and market 1000000 new cryptos that just saturate the market...

Lots of peoples, big potential, just censored. And it's a good idea ?

Why not a subforum ?

And what's about giving away the 6k of donations peoples did to you to get a nice forum ? Peoples asking for giveaway threads that's why there is a lot. So we gave 6k to get pulled out ?

Bitcoin forum
, people donated for a Bitcoin forum. Many of those people want Alt Coins gone entirely from Bitcointalk. The Altcoin section was made essentially as an off topic section, to group all non bitcoin crypto currencies in one place that is out of the way from the Bitcoin discussion. The spam is overwhelming the entire forum.
Then remove the altcoin subforums if that's so.

Good to see the giveaways go. Many of them were just attention-grabber anyways, rather than actually giving away coins.
Just look at the DogeCoin giveaway thread by FORKPOOL. It has 1228 posts and not even a few people have been paid.

Those are fake giveaways. I'm one of few who actually make giveaways.

Are you saying we can't give people bounties for doing jobs for the coin?  that doesn't make sense, that's what this game is all about.  I sure hope I'm misreading that.  Or are you just talking about dedicated random giveaway threads?

Why do donators want the altcoin section gone?  All they have to do is NOT visit the subforum.  It's called bookmarking your fav subforms.

Any of you Web designer forum making guys, it sounds like we need to get prepared to take our house somewhere else.

Bitcoin is great and we want it to thrive, but altcoins make us all a lot of money were as with bitcoin eventually only a top handful of groups are going to be making money mining.  Altcoins are making a lot of people's dreams come true.  People that really need it.

Impossible is a word found only in the dictionary of fools.

Altcoin subforum has useful information. Altcoin subforum is heavily populated by giveaway threads, reducing usefulness of subforum to those without desire for $.00005 worth of NewAltCoin. (among garbage coin announcements, but it's probably impossible to make an effective, binary ruleset on what is and isn't acceptable)

Giveaway sub-subforum solution is acceptable, I think. There may also be a correlation between account sales (which is allowed because it's very difficult to effectively enforce a ban against) and giveaway threads, but who really cares about that? There may also be more "ideological" reasons for this move (preventing pump&dumps)... don't really care about those.

BTC was pumped and dumped. BTC was the first coin which was pumped and dumped ever. There are threads with BTC giveaways. I find it useless, if other altcoin giveaways are useless.

There must be one giveaway section for btc/alts.


''$.00005 worth of NewAltCoin''.. I gave more than 10k USD in giveaways.

I'm offering my help.

If you ban giveaways people will just rename it and spam again.

Subforum would be more effective.

Anyway it doesn't work.

I've post 20+ messages to giveaways yesterday, only 3 give me coins. Every DOGE coins giveaway - just a flood section, there are no coins, nothing received.

Why should I support killing giveaway threads (which are pain in the arse) when admins aren't doing shit with reported people and posts?
We report spammers, scammers and junk posts and you don't care a bit and now you wan't to remove some of the spam with killing giveaway threads?

It's a matter of principle, you should fight all spam instead of thinking of a reason to close big part of altcoins because they are threatening bitcoin (they're not, but there are some crazy people out there thinking they know best).

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for shutting down giveaways on this forum but will not support it until I see actual scammers and spammers being banned from the forum after being reported to moderator...

Well , I support this. I clearly do. Why?
Cause the alt section is a mess.

Theymos did something for the alts , he has allowed sub forums , even though it's bitcointalk not altcointalk.
And the result :?

From one huge mess 4 new huge messes.
Mining pools , giveaways , new coins , second launch announcements in the announcement thread.
Mining pools in all the subforums.
Lots of coins have two threads in both ann and in the main subforum.
Giveaways everywhere , and as far as I've seen most of them are scams used to spam the forum to attract people to that coin.

And we should not even talk about random newbies with 1 post that infiltrate the other forums with "buy xxx " "xx coin is the solution".

I know it seems like a harsh decision but some rules need to be enforced here.

He's earning money from that.

Why didn't they think about that when they ''allowed'' (rofl) alt-coins in the forum?
