Maybe make some rules to cut down on the spam but closing the whole alt coin section? That's like me saying we should chop off your mouth cause I don't like your opinion.

Even though I am a strong Alt supporter, I have to agree with the OP.  And have said this for a while now.  BCT is and always was about Bitcoins, not altcoins.  And usually the environment here is usually negative in regards to Alt coins.  

The mods don't really care about Altcoins, and don't want/need this much traffic.  It's only creating work for them, and taking up their bandwidth/server space.  There are perfect Altcoin forums already in place like https://cryptocointalk.com/ which already has a section open for every single Alt coin out there, and they gladly accept people making Altcoin Giveaway threads.  

No I don't have anything to do with the site myself, but I think we as a whole should start moving over there, even though this one is more popular.

I dont get it... You and OP dont need this section, but you are posting here? Why do you even click this part of the forum when you dont need it?

Theymos will do what he finds correct. If he wanted to, he wouldn't have asked for yours or anybody's consent and would have already terminated the forum.

Posting a thread about killing a forum only shows how much cocky you're and how desperate you're to take the matter into your own hands.

I think they should either allow a giveaway subforum or just get rid of this section altogether. It's obvious there's a massive market for alts and their giveaways, but it's also clear that most mods and the admins don't care about them. The simple solution is just to find another forum because I doubt you'll be getting a giveaway section anytime soon.

The whole giveaway thing needs to be put squarely upon the heads of the individual coin devs.  Use Twitter or something.  Everyone has social media.

In fact, the whole process of a coin launching out must be put upon the heads of the coin devs.  BTCTalk is perfectly legitimate to be used as an announcement / formation / publicity entity, but past that it is in a coin's best interest if it continues on its own strength if it is indeed a good one.  It is not fair that bitcointalk should be forced to be the mothership entity for coins other than bitcoins.

Just like a butterfly starts out as a larvae and must fight its way out of its cocoon to morph into its final form, so must these altcoins get their initial push / publicity on BTCTalk and then be forced out into their own final forms on their own support.

Yeah, this thread's going to be popular.

Fine. Shut down the altsection. It would just move to a new forum, and Bitcointalk would lose thousands of members and potential ad revenue.

The actions of a select minority criticising the mods should not reflect their actions. Positively or negatively. That's what mods do. Moderate. Of course people are going to criticise them. It comes with the territory.

It's time for Theymos to kill the bitcoin sections and focus on the real money earner, the alt forums.

The mods don't really care about Altcoins, and don't want/need this much traffic.  It's only creating work for them, and taking up their bandwidth/server space.  There are perfect Altcoin forums already in place like https://cryptocointalk.com/ which already has a section open for every single Alt coin out there, and they gladly accept people making Altcoin Giveaway threads.

I dont get it... You and OP dont need this section, but you are posting here? Why do you even click this part of the forum when you dont need it?

I pretty much only deal with Altcoins, so of course I am going to click and use this section.  What I was saying is that this forum has always been the most caustic forum on the internet for anything related to Altcoins, and it would be better for us as a whole to be on a forum that actually supports our interests.

This is why I suggested we should all mutually pick a different forum where we can do our own thing, and where things like giveaways are asked for, and not banned.  Or where everytime a new altcoin comes online, there aren't 50 people waiting to say crap about Altcoins.  If everyone as a whole doesn't like cryptocointalk, possibly people could start using the Litecoin forums Altcoin section, as that is at least more related to us, as it is an Altcoin forum.    The owners of this site have pretty much shown us the door, don't know why we are all fighting to stay here.

Also what I am saying, we have proven, we have the majority of the traffic here.  The altcoin forums were here when we were small and tiny, but like atp mentioned, our community has grown up and it's time we move to our own location.  If anyone wants the ad revenue, and has the time to mod a forum, now is the perfect time to open altcointalk.org or something similar.

Alt coins are good for speculation so removing the alt section isn't going to kill the alt coin scene or even make any difference at all.
It just means that people will move to another forum.

That would be quite extreme. Especially given that the majority of "new" devs wouldn't even be able to post about their own coins.

It's up to the mods to decide what they want to do. But I think having an active alt section that actually had some effort/thought put into it would benefit these forums.

I don't think they need or care about losing members or ad revenue.
