I code in PHP/5.3.10+.

You just listed as a requirements a release that only has one bugfix in it, no new features.
This proves me that you don't know php enought to blame it.

That being said, it's certainly not the best language of the world, as none is, but it does fit some requirements pretty well.
You are trying to make me confess about which languages I code with. PHP. And I can recognise some C based variants enough to tweak/hunt and fix bugs.

But it's certainly NOT blameless. Not by a long shot. The worst one that comes to mind is security and data sanitation. You gotta do it all yourself.

Security
Use salted multi-iteration hashing for passwords using one of the SHA-2 algorithms. Passwords in the existing SHA-1 format need to be automatically upgraded once the user logs in again.
So while doing some research last night, my partner found http://codahale.com/how-to-safely-store-a-password/

I think the article makes a valid point.  What do you think, theymos?  Maybe bcrypt(SHA-256(password)) if we want to be uber paranoid

If you're going to have open-id, just go full open-id. Optionally, have a bitcointalk open-id server maybe?

I think that we are all getting tired of the limits of SMF.

I think SMF works pretty well now. I fixed the most pressing issues. (This is one of the reasons I haven't been too motivated to get this job done.)

I respectfully suggest you should suspend and lock this thread. It's kinda unfair to waste professional developers (of which I am not one*) time and effort dangling 3000+ bitcoins out there when you're not serious about it.





(*Or rather I am not currently seeking contracts)

Me / Bid: I am a very experienced web application developer based in the US. I can complete this project for the equivalent of $7000 in bitcoin (~583 today) and the project will take approximately 3-4 months to complete. All debugging will be completed and a bug report feature will be included in the event that anything is missed.

Features: I can mirror all the current SMF features as well as the new features/ways of doing things that you outlined.

Security / Maintainability / Code: Your new site/forum solution will be built using a very secure PHP development framework which I am very familiar and experienced with. The project will be developed using MVC programming methodology, a common and proven structured programming technique. Function names and parameters will be consistent throughout the program. It will be easily modifiable and maintainable to anyone with knowledge of PHP and MVC. I can also implement AJAX functionality for quick edit, etc.

License: I will retain ownership of the code to sell, reuse, or repackage. You will receive a license to use it indefinitely on any Bitcoin Talk domain (1 production installation and as many development/test installations as you need). You will be allowed to modify it in any way but not to share or sell it.

Database: I use MySQL, my queries and database structure are VERY FAST! I promise!

UI / UX: I'm all about minimalism and user experience. No problem making it look like this and making it skinnable. I've done all of that before and I am a master with CSS.

Groups: Groups will be customizable, but I'll create the predefined groups you asked for.

Stats: No problem, I'm an expert when it comes to reporting.

Limits: All routine things you're asking for, no problem!

Registration / OpenID: Everything looks good here.

Everything you've outlined here is possible and won't be an issue. Please get back to me soon if you intend on hiring me for this project. I will provide you with my resume and examples of my work.

A mean to downvote posts and have post with say "-5" show as hidden/collapsed by everyone with a hide trigger of >-5

These sorts of things would benefit us all and promote a sane Bitcoin development.

I might just be dreaming here but what would be the requirement to implement a way to convert and move entire threads to entirely different discussion system like disqus or reddit ?

Threaded topics would much more effectively manage inputs from users like Atlas, Goats, smoothie, ect... who tend to post, poorly though of, one line response to  specific details from a larger post and sometime doing so while quoting 2 page long posts.

Nope.

I will design and build a complete CRM system from the ground up for 3btc and a Hershey bar. It will have walnut veneer inlay and gold filigree. This response is about as serious as this thread.

OMG you have got to be shitting me.  

Fixed most of the pressing issues?  What issues have been fixed?  There's no mobile support.  There's no moderator support. There's no subscription support.  There's no advanced editor support.  There's no useful search feature. There's no reputation support.  There's no auction support. There's no classified support.  There's no spam protection.  There's no image gallery.  There's no attachment management.  There's no streaming/AJAX thread updates. There's no advanced profiles.  There's no anything, except a forum built in the 1990's.

I can't seriously believe you just said you fixed most of the pressing issues.  Use modern forum software.  All of the above is included in modern forum software either out of the box or with simple plugins.  Stop this silly nonsense about reinventing the forum wheel and creating software from scratch.  Pick a modern package and go with it.  

Heh... "SMF works pretty well now."   It's like saying "My horse and carriage work pretty well no, we don't need those new fangled 'automobiles'".


If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

Inaba pretty much brought it all together, this discussion here is nonsense, i just wonder that in meantime nobody else pulled up a forum, the board is full of geeks and people deeply in the dev sector.

We could do that in half an hour but we can't move the user base ourselves.

Setting up a new forum or new forum software is fairly trivial.

Migrating the data from a previous forum is a pain.
Getting users to go elsewhere is easier said than done.

And not only that.

Anyway theymos, will you ban me if I start up an alternative community and spam it in this topic only and in my signature?

"Search this forum"  "Search this thread"  Binary search.  Complex searches. etc...

Guess it pretty much depends on who does it, who would be aware, word of mouth, bitcoin irc, first page google result.
My idea people would pretty fast recognize if there is an better organized and technical advanced option.
It most probably, in my opinion, would not be the same as if the owner of this forum decides to do a software upgrade.
Whatever, im just bored trolling the forumz.

EDIT:
A useful search would for example not print a 404 when i enter a search, click on a result and use the go back buton on firefox.
A useful search would also know google operators, intitle, intext, filetype etc...
A useful search could print results in ajax or something similar, letting you stay on top off buzzwords.
