If this counts, he fixed the problem with the hompgraphs which I suggested months ago.
I had to push a lot to get it done but the final result is important Smiley
Yeah, I know about that one.
I see it more like a way of fixing a bug to prevent others from plagiarizing and not really a new feature.

It's sad we're spending a lot of time talking about these features and nothing gets done in the end...

Going back to one of my other questions, to satisfy my curiosity, does any of you know if a feature proposed by users was ever implemented?
There's this: Forum feature request: set Alt-text by default for all embedded images [SOLVED]
Theymos also stopped bump bots from being able to delete their own post within 24 hours on boards with the most spam.

I alone can make many more requests than any Admin can implement, so I get why most requests never get implemented.

There's a few things that have happened that people have mentioned already like the homographs and the 24 hour bump deletion thing, but don't forget about the merit system as well. Theymos is probably reluctant to spend too much time coding things for this forum when he's busy working on the new one (and any time he spends here he loses time on the development of the new one (though maybe/hopefully the same work/coding can just be implemented on the new board as well so it's win-win and not a waste of time)). If the new forum software is still a year or two away though then I think some more things should be implemented here in the meantime. Workload definitely needs to be distributed between staff and a few new mods being made to help out wouldn't hurt either and that's something that can be done by theymos with a few clicks and they'll help clean up this place and keep some order in the meantime.

I'm hoping that something will be done about removing signatures from Newbies/Juniors or requiring the latter to achieve some merit to become one. Clamping down on ICO campaigns who do little to nothing other than pay for spam would also go a long way and these are things that wouldn't require much effort from theymos and the staff can take care of the rest.

Thanks for the insight. I had lost hope after seeing so many features that were not implemented.

I'm not sure if the merit system was a user proposed feature, I haven't found any info leading to that.

Anyways, it's good to see that a few features were implemented, although I was expecting a lot more. Hope is not lost, yet Smiley

 ....
If I remember correctly, I read somewhere here that this was started sometime in 2015. It's 2018 now, I think it's highly unlikely that this will be done anytime soon, if ever.
Judging by the current pace & developers involved, it will probably take a lot more time that originally estimated.

I think this part with the restrictions to signature display is definitely not working.

I remember when I was a Jr. Member and the ability to add hyperlinks in signatures was removed but you could still display a text (like it's still the case now). As you can see there are a lot of campaign managers who hire Jr. Members to advertise their ICO/project/etc. So, clearly this isn't working.

The best way to stop this would be to randomly check the activity of campaign managers and see if they paid people who spammed the forum. Or if this looks cumbersome, create an official list of "approved by administration" campaign managers that people promoting their services could hire and any other bounty/signature threads created by someone who is not on this list would be deleted by moderators.

Otherwise, you will still be fighting the effect and not the root cause.

Here:
^ ^  Another post I wish I could simply +1 or "Like"

Please Theymos.....    Grin
Just 3 days later, Merit was born.
If I recall correctly, Vod made a similar suggestion a few years earlier. I can't find back that link though.

Numerous people including myself had suggested something such as 'likes' or something similar, though merit is a little different and probably works better than others envisioned.

It's much longer than that. Theymos sticked the thread in the New forum software in March 2014 and it had been in development before that: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=523070.0

From what I understand theymos is the sole person working on it, so that's both likely why it's taking so long and he has less and less time to dedicate to here as well.

This is it. They barely have a signature that is useful for anything anyway and it's largely worthless to even ICOs, but they don't care. They pay people for free and at least it gets their name out there they might as well utilise it as they have nothing to lose. This is why it needs to go and wouldn't be a huge issue even if it did. Users can still purchase a Copper Membership anyway to get a signature and I think that's something the forum should experiment with or even move towards (purchasing larger signatures via donator ranks like Silver and Gold etc).
