Alternatively, an image of a half-naked woman could be displayed, and if you look closely READ THE RULES could be edited across her boobs? I'm sure that would get their attention. 10 merits for this.

~

The offer of 50 merit for the dubstep track with the hook still stands and 10 for the boobs (make sure she's not actually naked or topless though and don't put it in image tags. Also mark it as NSFW).

If you put a naked/half-naked or even boobs to make people read the rules no one will ever read them, most of them gonna be bashing the candle and after that no one will remember to read the rules..
Better use some scary shit that can shake them really hard and BOO! READ THE F.king RULES can appear.
I bet they gonna remember it quite for long...


It's a joke.

....
Seriously, we don't need to have everything in caps and bright colours to get their attention. If they don't read it then that's their problem. People generally don't read terms and conditions because they're often overly long and in undecipherable legal spiel. This is short and sweet for those exact same reasons. Before they even sign up or as soon as they successfully create an account here a warning to read the rules could be displayed, but there's really no excuses for not reading it other than your own foolishness
...
I know you're a funny guy and I understand your points but if you really care about this, you need to come up with something that will make people read it   Wink

As I've seen here, a lot of people only read the title of a thread and not even bother reading the whole post. Do you really think they will bother with some message after they register?  Roll Eyes

....
And/or perhaps it should also be sound-tracked by some obnoxiously loud filthy dubstep as well that autoplays as soon as you successfully sign up to really get their attention? Perhaps we could create a dubstep track with the hook or lyrics of the song just being "READ THE RULES" over and over? 50 Merit to anyone who creates this.

Alternatively, an image of a half-naked woman could be displayed, and if you look closely READ THE RULES could be edited across her boobs? I'm sure that would get their attention. 10 merits for this.

Be careful tossing around large merit amounts, someone may indeed take you up on this offer or even worse, accuse you of sending them to your alts and abusing the merit system Grin

Half-naked, but not topless? Isn't that the wrong half if you want people to pay attention to the boobs? Grin

All I care about is the info being there. I don't actually care whether they read it or not as they'll be banned, but that will then be their own fault. Would we accept the excuse, well I did read the rules but it wasn't in red so I didn't take notice. No. We're not here to babysit idiots or let them off on technicalities for those that don't read. The rules should be displayed and they have the option to read them or not. Anything else is irrelevant and I don't care about any excuses or what ifs.

Cleavage doesn't mean much if it's the bottom half that's naked. Wink

Not only it will make newbies read or watch the welcome message, i bet it will make more traffic to this site, and I could say this is the best idea in this thread ever, thanks for your hard work hillariousandco, lol. To increase the effectiveness, she can make an interactive service called "BitcoinTalk 101" that teach newbies on how to be a good members in this forum.

OK in principle, would require thought/adjustment/implementation. Many of these things are more complex than they look at first glance.

The long story short.
It was a short romance between alia and nullius a few months ago. She was selling private online sessions for crypto but at the end it turned out that alia is actually alt account of the scammer favours and nullius was quite disappointed, I guess that's why he left took a brake off the forum.
The story was quite entertaining and much more complex but hope this is enough for you info.

Alternatively, an image of a half-naked woman could be displayed, and if you look closely READ THE RULES could be edited across her boobs? I'm sure that would get their attention.
You can use https://fakeproof.xenot.pro/# to create this (NSFW if you have very sensitive colleagues).
But as much as I like it, it will give the wrong idea about this forum Tongue


I'm really getting curious who the hell is this alia?
Alia started like this: Bored, horny and naked...
And ended like this:
Upon investigation, alia == favours via IP evidence

And now, I'm kinda like saying "WoW!", so that's why nullius has been gone for ages, being heartbroken to a certain scammer  Cry .
I'm far too late about this, as I've seen it, this happened last february and it's already been 5 mos I think. OMG! Cheesy

Oh well, Thanks for the info mate.

but the search function here is shit though.
Agreed! The search function should be replaced by Google search IMO. It performs way better than the default one.


I was (still am) a newbie to the forum when I tried to search for certain topics and was so frustrated with the piss-poor results to the search function. The obvious search graphic with the magnifying glass icon and text box is so prominent and universally recognizable, while the hidden gem of a search feature is... well... hidden among the other tabs... I finally found a topic thread that directed me to that Google based search.

That distinction on its own would be a very helpful tip to newbies IMO. (It would have saved me a lot of time and frustration had I known).

Visit GetPaid! (http://getpaid.lucas-web.net) for ways to earn money online - many of which most people here probably already use! LOL!!

Women with tattoos are defaced, IMO.  Why would you want to scribble all over something that's inherently beautiful?  This current TREND of women getting god-awful tattoos is beyond my comprehension, but I guarantee you these women are going to be regretting their decision to get them in about 10-15 years. 

Tattoos on women are skanky.  Already women are getting ridiculed for "tramp stamps" and "skank flank" tattoos.  History is not going to look on this kindly--guaranteed.  It's a little off topic, but I think it needs to be said.

IKR... Make a suggestion in the "community suggestions" thread. I believe it hasn't been requested yet. Also, here is a small tip for searching "better"

Use this code in Google. Should get you better results than the default one.

Code:
site:bitcointalk.org + whatever you want to search

The offer of 50 merit for the dubstep track with the hook still stands and 10 for the boobs (make sure she's not actually naked or topless though and don't put it in image tags. Also mark it as NSFW).

Is this subtle enough? (Not topless)
