Satoshi claimed to be Japanese, this Wang guy is rather Chinese.

Might be TradeFortress again not Satoshi   Cheesy

i would lol so hard if it was TF.
That'd almost be worth it just for the historical level of ridiculousness. I'd fully support this progression of events.

Normal websites only have to worry about automated vulnerability scanners, weak admin passwords and common misconfigurations when it comes to security.

BitcoinTalk.org is in a different kind of situation. It is in the cross-fire of cyber-warfare. Plenty of malicious hackers use this website for nefarious and non-nefarious reasons. It is likely to be the target of 0day exploits. Anything that runs on BitcoinTalk.org needs to be battle-hardened. We should be running OLD software that is known to be highly secure and stable. 3 year old web servers are a definite no go. We should be using 30 year old web server software. Some hacker would be browsing the forums one day, accidentally break something some hipster wrote yesterday and then realize they've just found a 0day in node.js and decide to own the forum.
In our defence, Node.js is used by big companies like Wal-mart and PayPal, so we won't be alone when a vulnerability is found. Also, I'm sure that our Google-level security bounties will help persuade people against attacking us maliciously.

That being said, I wasn't party to the negotiations, so I have no idea what language the forum will be built in.

Wtf kind of shit is this, building a software studio for one fucking forum
Well, when you have a few million dollars just sitting around, you might as well. Seriously, we're making enough money that we can support a dedicated full-time development team indefinitely, if we wanted to.

This is the first thing that came into my mind.. Grin Grin

Wondering, if this is only a coincidence or has something to do with Matthew N. Wright's in the meantime deleted Reddit post (mirror).

For $350K I can do the whole forum, and in less than a year. Also what happen to people that had to build the most of the forum software and show it to the community thread? Theymos we need answers and now.

Thank you leak, you did this community a service!

For $350K Chinese programmers can build a whole forum in a week Cheesy

FFS people - not that I'm a long time member or anything, but $350,000 for forums? Is that a joke? Are we reinventing the wheel here, or just rediscovering electricity? You could freaking hire a team of MIT students for less to build a state of the art forum on new tech, meanwhile leveraging MIT and the international exposure that would bring. Better end product, and huge free advertising.

Instead you choose WangBus? I guess it's good to be friends with whomever runs these forums, but this is all I need to see as a user to never, ever donate even 1SAT to these forums. That's just a crazy (and irresponsible) use of funds. No one needs that kind of cash to build a forum - no matter what you plan to do with the forum. Everywhere you look, there are better solutions that have already been developed and work just fine.

Anyway - your party. I'm glad I didn't donate, because supporting another man's 'Wanger' just isn't my cup of tea. Of course, you're welcome to all the tea bagging and wangs you can fit in your mouth, or wherever else they're being put for that $350,000.

Cheesy

I am sure many moderators and staff around here know me as a large pain in the ass, but for once I have to support Theymos on this. You expect him to run a secure forum for a multibillion dollar industry but spend not spend big bucks? As long he is not compromising on security or privacy I think this is a great idea and I hope it gets done ASAP. (PS please don't force us to use Google services for stuff like captcha etc, there are very few free places left where their tentacles don't reach)

De facto, it is.

All free men, wherever they may live, can use Bitcoin, and, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words "Ich bin ein Bitcoiner!"

Anytime a complaint arises, there's someone who emphasizes that this is just a forum, not the forum. See the access over tor thread for example.

This would be good news actually. Honestly, nothing would get done if this had to be discussed endlessly in the community, hiring a professional studio may actually get it done.

it is not a professional studio. they dont even have a website, or people who work for them.

that $350,000 is to help them start one so they can start on the project.

i just wonder how much this will end up costing and if we end up with anything.

What if the $350K was put in escrow via John K., paid out once the task is completed?

It is $1,000,000 plus now, but this "firm" is not able to do the work with out being able to hire staff and workers. I doubt they would trust that escrow anyway.

Why not! He vetted Matt Carson, the first ever double vetted person in all of BitcoinLand.

BTW, I just learnt that MNW deleted his Reddit post. Odd!
