No, it's the biggest joke in our forum in this period. Better to not to submit your KYC information so you won't get scammed by theymos.

Well theymos decided to add KYC probably because it is the trend.  He even made an announcement thread about this implementation.  Do not forget to check his thread to guide you on how to fill-up those forms and it also  needs an extra verification by requiring you to provide your photo  in your reply on that thread.


Don't sulk, its not that bad and you will find it entertaining while filling up the form.

It seems to me that if you give your KYC then this is a kind of variation and confirmation that you can be trusted and that you are not a crook.

This type of person is so lazy to realise that this was a joke for april fool. Go search for the page first if this a true story or not. Dont just get panic for this kyc before knowing it just a prank.

I guess they explained the reason behind this KYC. this is done for the good of us as forum users, with the presence of KYC spammers in this forum will decrease and hope the quality in this forum will be better.

I was surprised when I opened my browser and saw the notice. I later follow the link to the KYC procedure and filled out the form until the gender section which made me realize that this is the biggest joke I've ever experienced in this forum.
But I think it is quite make sense that if theymos really apply this requirement for some reasons. And hell yeah, he got me  Cheesy

Have you forgotten what day it is? I hope that this is the main reason, if you do not remember that last year was also a very interesting joke on April 1. Very cool that forum administrators do not forget to joke. Cool.

not so mate this is a celebration every year on April 1, a kind of joke that we are all happy. look at the meta KYC now required you will find a variety of funny pictures you can also verify yourself and contribute in there

I think this will be a good spam thread because April fool thread was pinned in KYC required form. So once you submit directly it will move to next process in that thread but everything is just for fun. So better you should lock this thread because many useless posts are increase this thread.  If you want to make fun you can move to Off topic.

I am more than confident that many have filled out KYC forms with all their data! Even without suspecting that this is only an April Fool's joke! Be careful guys!

They are basically saying its an april fools joke but it is not impossible that for now on, bitcoin talk will going to implement this system to verify the accounts. Well, indeed I can say it is still commended as a precaution for people with multiple accounts, be alert to be honest nowadays, use one account to be prepared for this.

It's an April fool joke and a reminder that the forum would never go on to acquire personal information of people that may be misused.
It also makes us cautious about whom we are sending our personal data and for what uses. If such information gets into the wrong hands, even if you are a law abiding person, some other can be doing illegal activities in the disguise of your identity.

I still don't understand why they impose KYC verification in this forum. I just hope the admin's mind will change tomorrow.
