look a you... thermos lovers lol. just google what I said and see for yourself. of course it isnt "stealing" because it is donation money. But you know what I meant so don't play bs games ...
I understand where you are coming from, you wish the forum to continue and "prosper" thus you avoid reality. but the reality is this forum is going downwards in a steady pace. all to your beloved "Sir Thermos" and his other friend cyrus.

That's bullshit.

I completely understand theymos, satoshi made the right choice, I think.
Everything comes down to trust, and if you want to stay anonymous you can't trust anyone.

When you are famous and mysterious person and in addition holding a few millions in Bitcoin /can be rumours of course/ anonymity is what is keeping you save, and you can have a normal life.

That's why I respect him.

you begin by saying that what I wrote is BS.
then you continue and say you respect him because he is anonymous while disregarding everything I said here or before.

well done Sir! let's all respect rich mysterious people just because they are rich and mysterious!

yeah. or you can continue to remain blindfolded and a good patron of "the mysterious guy" Smiley

and when you decide to stop being an ostrich with your head stuck in a hole in the ground  check out this:
https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/55xjai/proof_that_theymoss_embezzled_forum_money_has/

and other links when googling "epochtalk reddit"

but of course if backing up someone you never knew or met is your thing. then kudos

You should read this: https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2mcdb4/thermos_is_spending_100000_worth_of_his_donated/cm32dws

I don't think theymos will ever risk his reputation amongst other things[1] for money. In fact, he is one of the very rare people who actually helps the community. He has done so mnay things and is even doing things like trying to make improvements everywhere in the bitcoin community, while you're just saying thermos is dipshit. If you have any legit accusation/s, write it up here or here in Meta itself, it won't be moderated, so you don't have to worry about that.

[1]You shouldn't be knowing what that is.

LOL are you kidding me? a forum for 1 mil? am I missing something here? is this NASA?  did you even have a look at the website of the  "company he hired" to do the job? its a 5 dollar template site.

and you dont think he will risk his rep over so much money? well. thats your opinion.
his improvements are slow, cost to much, mostly never come, and with they do, they suck.
so yes thermos is dipshit and there is no use starting a scam accusation as there is no new info, just the stuff thats on reddit.


oh and I will just add. after spending 1 mil you got thin air in return

While 1 million $ is no small amount, you or me can't really tell why the amount was spent. This isn't the place to discuss about the new forum/ theymos's 'embezzlement". Create an another thread, and we shall have a legitimate conversation and by we, I think a lot of people would be interested in this "embezzlement" controversy.

Not really, it's old news and mud throwing.

As for the forum needing money: it earned about $1 million last year, and could easily earn much more from advertising. Theymos excluded ICO advertising last year, which lowered the advertising income. For a forum this size, only one banner per page on 90% of the pages is really low.
So no, I don't believe the forum needs money.

What I don't understand is that things were progressing, and then they suddenly stopped. I believe that most things have now been done. My ownership of the hacked account has been verified and the hacked account is now locked awaiting recovery.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=168257

The final step is to get the recovery email out. The heavy lifting has been done. So what's stopping mods taking the final step and pushing the button in cases like mine? Maybe there was an overwhelming flood of recovery requests around the end of last year. I don't know. Communication was stopped without explanation.

Some investigations have already been completed. Why can't they be finalized? Even if a few were being done once in a while (that we were aware of), at least there will be some flicker of hope for people.

As it was pointed out, the problem is not going away. It will just keep on mounting until something gives.

(in my conspiracy theory trances, I sometimes wonder if maybe the site owners are now tired of BCT (members can be very abrasive) and just want it to go away and die)

Wasn't Theymos working on a system that would allow us to regain control of our account by email? Something similar to the possibility to lock our account when the email and password were changed. Wasn't it supposed to be added very soon?
hi

actually if your account is locked you can do this process:

1 : ask for a new password by email
2 : you receive email and you click on the link
3 : you change password
4 : you log in with new password successfully and...
5 : you are locked again

i have do this many times and it's not working...i'm going in circles.  if this process was possible, it will give less work to Theymos and Cyrus

the strange thing it's my account is locked since august 2017 but when i try this process  it's changing the "Last Active:  date"

like is we have really connected, but we are not, we are locked

for example, here  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=142910 i have try again on may 2018



Old Hero account locked (not hacked) waiting pending manual review since august 2017
