Ok, I must confess I hadn’t taken much a look into it before, so I assumed that what the new forum software was about was creating a new (with all that it entails) software specifically for Bitcointalk. If I’ve understood it properly, Epochtalk aims at being a forum enabler, thus upping the level of abstraction needed to develop the forum, and exponentially making the development tougher to implement that just a single specific instance for Bitcointalk.

If I’ve assessed the above correctly, the focus goes way beyond a Bitcointalk forum implementation, thus the suggestion for people to download the software and setup their own forum environment, being the test oriented to finding bugs, functional problems, usability issues and performance issues amongst others, of the underlying forum generator software (and not just a "mere" instance as I has in mind).

Does anyone has the idea that willing to share why theymos and team decided to name the new forum as "Epochtalk". Literally for me it is not a good name for it does not sound good when you read the word. We all know that bitcointalk.org forum is the name of the forum that is suited to cryptocurrency where bitcoin is the highlight.

It's the new forum script that's being called "epochtalk", the forum name will probably remain bitcointalk.org. At the moment, bitcointalk.org uses the script "SMF", but the forum isn't called SMF either Wink

I think it is a great name. An epoch is the start of a new period in history, and we are now entering a new era for banking. It shows that the forum has grown with the expansion and adoption of crypto. Bitcoin is still the most important coin in my opinion, but there will be others that will have greater public acceptance. I hope that the forum will be open to all discussions.

Anyone managed to set it up yet? I'm a bit in a short of a free time these days but I really want to try it.
We can make a test crypto forum so everyone can use and test it. I'm willing to trow a few satoshi that way if anyone has the time for it Smiley

I was going at it earlier but the dependencies wouldn't install correctly so I think I've broken Jet's vps further than he had previously broken it lol..

I'm going to take a look again soon and uninstall and reinstall the dependencies that don't work in turn..

I made a script for the redhat dependency install if anyone wants it. I can convert it to the debian family also if it's helpful.

I think it'd be better if you can throw some merits at the user who setup the script. Smiley
Here is the link to his post : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5114471.msg49953152#msg49953152

He deserves merits for that more than I do. ^^

I would love to try it, so if you convert it for debian it will be perfect, my old FreeBSD server is already too messed up and it will be a breath of fresh air with some fresh linux distro on it Smiley

@yogg, well you brought it up to me so you both deserve merit Smiley

I am confused in some point.

1. Is it the same (exact) software that will be we are using in future or it is some beta/test version.
2. If we put software as open source then phishing  site like bitcointalk.to will not take advantage?
3. Why theymos want user to test it voluntarily only? Is it not good if forum spend couple of grands and user here and hired QA both test it together?
4.Requirement Doc need to be updated first before any testing.

I'm testing it right now and I can say it's awesome Smiley Need some small touches here and there but nothing big. It's like a lambo that needs some polish, that's all.  It's exiting for sure.

Note: no merit system yet Cheesy

How far have you got, and what have you done? I've got so much on at the moment, that I may not get the chance to look at it for a while. It's a bit of a procedure to get the software re-installed as well.

<...>
I seem to have tested the ban side of things pretty quickly: "Error: Abuse Detected. You have been banned from performing this action. Please contact an administrator." ...

I was still waiting for the email account creation confirmation to come through, and since it did not, I tried to login, failed, and tried to reset my password and "voila!". Probably the first to be banned form @lulucrypto's test environment ...

Edit:

Created second account, but still no email confirmation.

I guess it’s on the road map, but I’d say that test should aim at two related but distinct objectives:

1.   Test Epochtalk from a “create and manage” your own forum point of view.

2.   Test Bitcointalk running on top of Epochtalk.

While the former is interesting for the product itself, most people would be more willing perhaps to test the latter, preferably with a decent amount of history transferred so as to let volume have a saying in relation to speed, as well as see how historical posts are displayed, current and new Bitcointalk forum functionality, and so on.

Anyone using this (or any other "unofficial" test site) please keep in mind privacy and safety implications:

- don't use your bitcointalk username or otherwise link yourself between sites if your don't want to expose your IP to third parties;
- don't use the same e-mail and/or password;
- don't assume other users have the same usernames.

I'm pretty sure there are many other pitfalls. Be smart please.

It goes into the spam section.

Regarding the privacy, I've created email just for this registration, random password and of course VPN Smiley this should be just a common sense precautions when you register to a never-heard-before website.

I think lulucrypto had no bad intentions but anyway...

I've tested it a little and I like it a lot.
Here what I wrote as a first impressions :

Quote
There I start a thread with what I have marked til now. :

1.  Notifications  for mentions are triggered after a certain amount of time.  That is OK .
2. After Marking the notifications  " all read" there is still pending old notification.
3.  Toolbar menus for posting  are missing . I guess it's intended.
4.  Trust feedback cannot be changed or removed after posting it. I guess there is some cool down time, but should be mentioned somewhere on the page.
5. Seems like the view count is not working .

... the list to be continued.

What I like :

1. You can choose to report user or post, I like it Smiley
2. Easy to add users to the trust list,  separate  buttons to trust and untrust lists, cool.
3.  Nice mobile version

cd epochtalk
yarn
cd modules
yarn
cd ..
cp example.env .env
node cli --create
yarn --version

This is what I have so far quickly adapted from what I had on fedora so some of it might not work properly.

if you run "yarn --version" at the end I think that checks at least itself and probably the ones before it (hopefully).

I don't think the rest of the process can be automated though either.

Great, thanks for the script. I have to find some time to take out of service my old FreeBSD firewall and give it a fresh breath of air with some new Linux distro Smiley

What an ugly broken quote .

As an extension.

Run
node and a terminal should appear if it is. Installed (at least the shell will have a > at the start of each line)
run npm -version and yarn -version to test those.

/usr/pgsql-11/bin/postgresql-11-setup initdb
systemctl enable postgresql-11
systemctl start postgresql-11

Can test post postgresql11


I have two other commands but you'll have to wait for them Smiley
