Add the option to quote posts from the closed topics, e.g. "Recovering hacked/lost accounts".



I've found also an old but interesting suggestion:

IIRC it used to work that way but was removed for performance reasons.

I don't think is necessary the buttons to be removed, they can be locked for editing or deleting after a certain period of time, like a week or so.

An easy fix would be to move the thread to Auctions, if they allow it there.

There is not much point in this suggestion as most of the posts there are quoted and verified for reference and even the original poster tries to delete the post it would have already been quoted in the next post after it by someone else.

In the topic "Stake your Bitcoin address here" any user can quote the message with Bitcoin address now, therefore excess security does not hurt.

PS. I think you should visit this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5071290

Yes. But I think there are more bigger problem here than this one and it already has some security to keep it protected.

Yes, I already saw it before but thought let them decide. Any one here could come after long time and take interest in Bitcoin again. I don't have to proof every time I login after a long time as I have done it many times before.

No please. This will be used as a tool to pester people. Removes privacy and unnecessary. Just check when they last logged in.

Add a warning to the Private Message window that users should be very cautious about links and codes from unknown senders.

Inspired by this topic.

This amendment will facilitate the identification of merit sources and thus increase Merit begging.
Even if there is a benefit, you can use some alternatives like BitcoinTalk Public Information Project (BPIP).

Beggars, generally, are receiving the red trust. Therefore I see no problem in publishing information about merit sources.

In my opinion, such statistics should display directly on the forum, because it's more convenient than searching for it on another site.



In addition, if I see that the member has received 100 merit and sent 0, then I would rather will give merit to someone else. I suppose many users will do the same.

...
I won't display it like that because it is taking up more space in the profile, but would make the merit text clickable instead.
If someone is interested, he/she will click on the merit link and will get to the user's merit profile.

I like your suggestion very much and maybe we can do it like that: right now there is a possibility to display the post count in addition to Merit and Activity. That's quite useful to see how many posts the person made so far. It's only an additional feature and those who don't want it because they like it clearer can switch it off.

Merit begging should not be a problem, most of the beggars are well aware that it won't be succesful.

Enable post count can be found here and adding another checkbox if you want to display earned Merit should be no problem:





And if you like it how it is now it's always possible to switch it off:



I dislike sending Merit to Accounts which never send some, too  Wink

Add a new rank above Legendary, eg "Deity".

"Deities" could receive some special features. Don't know what exactly but they should get something for sure.

Rank 'Deity'

Requirements: 3000 Merit, 2000 Activity

Features:
- can edit a Custom Title;
- can use animated avatars;
- can use images in the signatures.

I'm with you right up until here.  Animated avatars should be taken out to the woodshed and shot--regular avatars are bad enough, which is why I have them blocked, and their existence should end right there.  No frills, no more space, no animation....ever.

I kind of like the "deity" rank, but have we heard anything from Theymos lately about whether he's considering adding any more ranks?  I always got the feeling (or maybe he wrote it somewhere) that Legendary is as far as anyone is every going to go.  At one point I thought that that would lead to an overabundance of Legendaries, but since the merit system came into existence and it's much harder to rank up, I don't think that's going to be the case. 

My view has kind of changed since January of last year, and perhaps Legendary is as high a rank as needs to exist.  Don't know.  Something higher than that would be nice, however--and I'm not even talking about for myself.  There are some members here who've been around for many years, and it'd be cool to make a distinction between them and some of the "newer" Legendaries.

Currently, anybody who fits the requirements has rank "Administrator". I don't think theymos is going to give only himself a new rank.

This is to keep the relative proportions between getting ranks and that the Legendaries would have the hard but ambitious goal.

I believe, the most experienced members which have 2000 Activity and 3000 Merit will not use annoying animations.
For example, some users didn't even guess that Vod has an animated avatar.




I kind of like the "deity" rank, but have we heard anything from Theymos lately about whether he's considering adding any more ranks?

Theymos said about the new rank: "No. Or not yet. Or the idea would need to be significantly modified."
But I think that the advanced users, who continue to help making the forum a better place in years, definitely should receive some bonuses.
