Bitcoin is a prepper's tool, and discussions about it, and the economic collapse are all over YouTube and other media platforms, but we don't seem to get any relevant discussions here, other than blinkered comments about it all being conspiracy theory.

Where are the discussions about the impending crypto split between security tokens and utility tokens? Has anybody mentioned that some large blocks of Bitcoin have been moved out of exchanges and into private wallets? and what about the billions of dollars worth of US stocks that the Swiss Central Bank sold last month? There are a load of topics like these that could be discussed without the spam intrusions.

No one really has the expertise to discuss any of these topics at length it seems.

No one wants to deal with your trolling is the more likely explanation. It's totally up to you to make your threads interesting and engaging. Most often you just post a link and expect something to happen.

Although the topics on those boards do no get lots of interactions (views and comments) most of the interactions are relevant and to the point.
There's hardly any spam, as there's no motivation for that.
No signature and limiting lower ranks from posting.

It could definitely be more active.

Sometimes I wonderwhy I bother. The Ivory Tower should be the most interesting board here, and it should have a wide range of decent topics containing discussion with some of the more able members.  It seems that I am the only one who wants that.

I've said my piece, so now I will leave it for you guys to use it or lose it.

I stopped reading the serious discussion board because of the low value posting by some of the juniors.

Bitcoin is a prepper's tool...

You know bitcoin is useless without a network? Without instantaneous global communication, the blockchain is utterly worthless.

I don't see how bitcoin is really a prepper's tool.

No one wants to deal with your trolling is the more likely explanation. It's totally up to you to make your threads interesting and engaging. Most often you just post a link and expect something to happen.

There's certain users I tend to troll (normally counter-trolling), but in serious discussion, I'm fairly serious. I do think there are specific topics in which this community has absolutely no actual knowledge.

Hydrogen seems to be a pretty big weakness, as well as "cyber security" (you'd think a bunch of "crypto nerds" would be interested in an APT... but I guess not).

The again, the "crypto nerds" here aren't cryptography nerds, but some pseudo-economic followers of cryptography.

You could engage yourself in some of that discussion or head over to off-topic Smiley

I've started 16 threads that are on the first page of the Ivory Tower board. I'm not the most knowledgeable member here, and probably not even the most interesting, so what is tha matter with all you senior members? Theymos gave you a great place to enter into good informed discussions about any sensible topic, and it's spam free.

This probably scares a lot of people away who are not actually here for bitcoin...

I do participate from time to time in the odd discussion there, but like others have said, a lot of it is not interesting to me.  Never got involved in politics.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

Starting a lot of threads isn’t as helpful as you seem to think it is.

There are 40 threads on the first page of the index. The latest reply to the 40th thread is dated 30th July. If nobody started any new threads or replied, then the board would die.

The reason I started this thread is because I agree that too many of the threads have been started by me, and I hoped that I could encorage a few more members to support the board. It seems that most people want to create posts to complain about spammers, but not support the spam free boards.

I think the point was not in quantity, but in the quality of these threads. Jet Cash created topics in which serious, interesting questions could be raised and discussed. The fact that the emphasis was placed on the fact that there were 16 of these discussions indicates that the quality wasn`t appreciated (all discussions were on various topics, but all were constructive and interesting). This suggests that the forum participants are interested mainly in those topics through which they can easily earn. Jet Cash tried through the creation of new threads to improve the quality of deliberations, but the result implicates that very few people are interested in this.

People all over here got involved in bitcointalk because they want to earn a small income on a signature campaign thus creating a fascinating thread would limit their daily post and it is against them to join on IV.

Most of the threads is interesting however people here only learn how to generate post not to create quality threads. :-(

Perhaps that is a sign the section should be removed. Seems to exist just for you to try and earn merit.

My apologies if that seems rude, but when I click on a section and see 16 threads by the same person I don’t even bother reading them... Actually makes me think we need some sort of limit on how many threads a user can start per week.

If a board is too sparse, don’t blame the ones postinng there, blame the ones who aren’t.

People usually (if not just here for the money) can post well and should consider posting in ivory tower a bit more. There are limited times where it seems more useful to post there than serious discussion but it still happens quite frequently when you want a iscussion with more senior members of the forum.

It’s the board we asked for, if people can’t endorse that, or are just here for the money, they should get up and leave before they are kicked out of here (when I rise to power over the world Grin). Serious discussion and ivory tower are great places to post stuff when you have no idea where to post it or when the relevant section it’s suited to gets filled with bounty spams.
