I have a question. What's with all these posts quoting the OP and nothing more? Is that a way of bumping? Or is it just spamming?

When I come across a post like that if it's more than a few minutes old I report it like a "Low Quality" no content post. I think it is just spamming. Welsh's above post is how you literally bump a thread.

@Welsh like the thread, I have something to look forward to at 300 good reports. I want to see where I messed up the 5 I got wrong.

Edit: Just came across a situation where I want to report a post in Meta, User literally posted like they are signing up for a bounty in a random thread. Who handles these?

In these type of cases, I hit the report to moderator link and in the comment section I write: "User have no idea what they are doing". All of these kind of reports were handled as "good report" for me.

Here are some custom reporting text I use for the comment section (Thanks to the browsers cache) often  Smiley


PS: You can use the one which says. "user is confuse. Thinking the topic is a bounty page"

Since we're discussing reporting, I would like to hear some opinions on this case:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2942080.msg41328087#msg41328087
Archive here

In the rules quoting pyramids are discouraged but I don't know if its still enforced.
Should this be reported?

Ps.
I'm pretty sure something fishy is happening there but I'm on the phone and I can't really do a throughout check on those accounts

I'm pretty sure that it only shows the last 30 days. No unfortunately you won't be able to find out without contacting a moderator. Unless, you have reported them within the last 30 days of course.

Yeah you can report excessive quote pyramids. I guess it's pretty subjective, though. Depends on what the moderator dealing with the report says. I'm not sure what constitutes "excessive" in this case, however I would normally only report these cases if the content isn't that great or if it's a pain to navigate the thread because of it.

I have a question sir. I just recently detected multiple accounts in a single bounty campaign, more specifically 5 accounts, all Jr. Member, 2 of those were both registered January 05, 2018 with a 5 min interval, and the another 2 accounts were registered April 17 with a 6 min interval. Should i post it on a thread or should I just let those 5 accounts join a single Bounty - Signature Campaign?

Don't report it as this sort of stuff is not moderated on the forum. However, you can open a thread in the Reputation section. I'm sure a few users will appreciate that you've found a few users cheating campaigns.

I have a question. What's with all these posts quoting the OP and nothing more? Is that a way of bumping? Or is it just spamming?
One can only assume that this is them just bumping with alternate accounts to avoid the 24 hour bumping rule. I report them, and they always get removed.

I believe it would be useful to include topics that are used to investigate or accuse dishonest practices such as the use of Bot Farm and merit exchanges.

Examples:
From: LoyceV
[Mods: NUKE 120 act] Commercial Spambots post and delete 1000s of posts per day


From: killyou72
 Suspected users that are abusing merit 3.0

I don't think I'll include those threads as I would like to focus more on reporting, and how it should be done rather than including resources to report in. A lot of these threads in Meta could just be reported instead of posting on the topic. I understand in particularly complex reports, but other than that the report field is good enough.

I might include them in the post below the original post, but I'll decide on that later.

You could use OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) Studio. It’s open source and that’s what most streamers use when they are online and streaming. I’m not fully familiar but I’m sure it’s one of the best video recording softwares in the internet. And of course, it’s free.

Hey, does anyone want to make a "We need you" image for reporting on Bitcointalk? I think that could be pretty damn cool, although I'm not very well versed in editing images.

I was going to change the Uncle Sam image to the logo of the Bitcointalk logo, but don't think it would look right. Have I ever mentioned that we need a mascot for the forum? Kind of like how Uncle Sam represents the American government.

Are there any guides for reporting someone of continuosly shit posting (you can clearly see it since almost all of the recent post of the user is a one liner). Not that i'm saying a one liner is a shit post but there's little to no sense at all.

I'm wondering if i should publicly post it but i'm thinking, do i really need to? Or does clicking the "report to moderator" button and stating "moderate to heavy shitposter" be enough to address my concern?

Coming from 4chan, I've been disappointed that there's very little fanart for bitcointalk.org. (Though it's not surprising, since 4chan is an imageboard and this is a text-focused BBS-type forum.)

Using the "report to moderator" should be enough. If you think they are a shitposter then you can report them for such, and ask the moderator dealing with the report to take a look at their post history.

Something like "User is spamming/Shitposting. Please check their post history". The moderator dealing with the report can then decide if more severe action is necessary or they may just delete all the posts that they deem not to their standard.  90% of the time opening a new thread isn't necessary.

If they're copy and paste ones please link to the original they've copied. Some mods might not be aware of the homographs spam so mark it bad.

I'm sure somebody would create one. Maybe throw a bounty up. I always liked the Mr Bitty logo someone designed a while back:



The BTC symbol as his mask is a nice touch.

If I'm not mistaken, there was a bounty looking for suggestions to promote Bitcoin. Both in bitcointalk and in /r/bitcoin. It could have a contest to select a mascot and then print stickers. 100,000 stickers cost less than 1Btc on this site. Probably must have other sites that offer an even lower cost, the difficulty could be the distribution, though... And I imagine that similar suggestions have been made before.
The Bitcoin symbol already attracts a lot of attention when we come across it in some unexpected places.

Awesome! Thanks for letting us know. I'll probably fit this somewhere in the original thread. I think that's pretty much confirmation that it's 300 good reports. At least It's good enough for me until proven otherwise.

I'll throw in another confirmation that it's 300 good reports:

I've probably got ideas for artwork, but not the skills. Even though, the forum is text focused I would of thought some of the creative individuals here would of come up with quite a few pieces of artwork.

I'm sure somebody would create one. Maybe throw a bounty up. I always liked the Mr Bitty logo someone designed a while back:

The BTC symbol as his mask is a nice touch.
That's actually a pretty good one that I wasn't aware of.

I'll throw in another confirmation that it's 300 good reports:
Right, I'll probably add this into the original topic when it comes to editing it again. I still need to work on making the report history image smaller.

Alpacas are already the unofficial mascot of Bitcoin.  Would seem only right for the forum to be represented by one wearing socks, which is oddly appropriate.
