Considering the forum has already done her best by giving interested members an opportunity to earn by advertising for projects through avatar, personal profile message and signatures. what's your stand on forum users offering an advert space on their started threads. Should such practice be welcomed or discourage. A popular example can be found here; Overview of Bounty Managers I think such practice should be strongly frown against before;
  • 1, it becomes a trends and other users engage in creating rating threads they know will draw attention just to offer an advert space at the top of their thread.
  • 2. Gets abuse in respect to listing scam projects on those thread.

I'm speaking directly about paid advert not links to you thread or something relating to that been pinned for easy access to interested members.

If a topic creator wants to advertise something in his topic and the advertiser wants to pay for it then I do not think anyone will have any issue. Talking about scam or other shady things, I think it will work same as it work for signature campaign.

In signature campaging if we find out a shady company then we recommend everyone not to advertise it. The same rule will be applied to the idea you are thinking about.

Yes it's clear after seeing the example you bought into your post. 🙂

1. How would one do that, though? If you are actually able to create threads that you know will draw attention, you must be doing something good, no? I also don't think it can be any thread, right? I didn't even know this was a thing, I thought advertisements were only outside the threads.

Referral links, let alone advertisements like that are dicey. There are pretty strict rules for when you are allowed to post a referral link to avoid spam posts, so I'd imagine putting an outright advertisement in your thread like that is probably a good way to get your thread deleted. Moderator discretion comes into play there most of the time when determining if its a minor referral link is the purpose of a spam post, or if its a small unobtrusive feature in a post. Nine times out of ten, a post would be deleted for spam if it contains a referral link.

That said, its pretty obvious that the thread/post itself has value and is not spamming, however I would not be surprised in the slightest if they were asked to remove the advertisement or have the post deleted.

If your thread is content heavy, you can have an advertisement in your thread with prior permission from theymos.

At one point, dogie was advertising in his various miner guides threads, and mitchell was advertising in his overview of signature campaigns thread. I presume theymos gave prior permission for both of these.

I have no idea if Daboy_Lyle received prior permission for his thread. I personally think there should be a little more content/information in his thread before being allowed to advertise, and I see the thread to be somewhat low effort.

I don't know if they got approval from theymos but advertising is allowed in some cases. I PMed theymos and he said I could put in ad in this thread of mine.

I think there should be no ads unless you are advertising something directly related to the thread's subject.
I think it is a sleazy thing (my personal opinion), besides the fact that ads make the thread looks awful.

Exactly that's my point, if this practice of allowing ads get welcome more often, users will turn to thread to start advertising and the main purpose of producing quality and content heavy thread will mostly be to get privileges of renting an advert space at the top of their threads. And if the practice is to continue then a restriction to only allow advertising something related to the thread should be implemented. e.g it makes no sense lets say I open a thread to read about mining bitcoin and I get welcomed by some shitproject or coin advert.

You have put forward a unique question which I believe hasn't been discussed here since from the start. Mitchell's signature campaign thread is quite popular for its unique presentation template and the content it has provided. Probably it is one of the most well maintained threads in the forum, and also most of the other overview topic starters have used a similar template. Hence, that should be the primary reason in one of the pugman's thread on campaign managers having a advertising slot. Either they should have used the similar template and doesn't want to change the template or should be aware of the advertising slot the topic provides.

2. Gets abuse in respect to listing scam projects on those thread
Scam coin projects never pay in bitcoin and such really good topic starters will never indulge themselves in promoting a ERC-20 token in their slot. I do agree to the fact that the slot might be misused at some point of time in the future, but having the advert slot in a well written and informative post itself is not a bad idea. I am into creating an overview topic which might take a few more days to post and I have thought of contacting Mitchell for using his template for my topic. If such thing happens, I wouldn't be using the advert slot.

it makes no sense lets say I open a thread to read about mining bitcoin and I get welcomed by some shitproject or coin advert.
If you wear a ERC-20 signature and you're very much active in the bitcoin boards it doesn't make sense either. The problem lies in what we advertise instead and doesn't relate to what gets advertised where? Last year I did such thing by advertising a ERC-20 token and was very much active in the Bitcoin Technical board. It makes sense, until we are aware of what we promote both in our signature and in our advert slot.

I use to think those side advert would be a negotiation and agreement with the ICO companies, for it to be attached with the graphic and that might be a joint work/ collaboration which aids easy reach of the targeted cap.
As long as you have agreed to their offer for your service as user,how they marge should not be our stress.

I think it's fantastic, I'm against banning. And I hope more people will be able to produce posts so good that companies are willing to pay for their brands to be exposed there. But of course, that everything should be done in a transparent way and with the proper permission of the admin.

Some time ago, I had even suggested that we had an exclusive section for long reads. A place where people could create texts in the style of those that are posted in Medium and that they could receive "sponsorship" for their texts in that section.

Bitcoin should flow...

No, it shouldn't be discouraged. I don't see any reason why/how it will be against any of the forum rules. The service advertiser sees potential in a thread and chooses to advertise it. However, that thread is redundant since there are almost 10 threads in the same section listing out the bounty managers.

Here is the actual rule:

[...]
Ads are typically not allowed in posts (outside of the signature area) because they are annoying and off-topic. It is especially disallowed to put ads or signatures at the bottom of all of your posts. Except for traditional valedictions, which are tolerated but discouraged, signatures are for the signature area only.

However, if you are using the forum as a publishing platform to host something really substantial and useful, selling ads in that substantial work is allowed. To be eligible for this, your post must be in a topic that you started, and your post must be substantial and long enough to make the ad seem entirely insignificant. If in doubt, ask me.

The same thing from this topic, this topic is mainly supported by the administration and I do not think he asked for permission to do so. ---->Overview of Bitcointalk Signature Anti-Spam Campaign Managers

I think we should differentiate between ads in this way and copying the signature code in each post as an alternative to signature campaign ads.

See:
Didn't notice that. He may just be copying Mitchel's thread, but did you get permission from theymos to advertise there as you need to get the go-ahead from an admin to do that and it's rarely granted?
I have sent theymos a PM,let's see. Undecided
(although I don't think theymos' answer is posted there)

I think we should just get rid of this rule that people can advertise within threads because it just leads to confusion. I'm not explicitly against users doing it but isn't it unfair that some threads are allowed to be monetised whilst others aren't? We already have a rule that says no adverts outside of the signature but with this exception users see others doing it and then assume that it's ok for them to do so and they can advertise in any of their threads they want without prior permission.

It's obvious some users are just creating threads so they can try monetise them and this will only become more prevalent as others catch on. Look at the thread given as an example in the op. Not only does it have a blazing advert at the top of it he's also trying to monetise it in two other ways. He's left his bitcoin address at the bottom asking for tips and another alerting users to tell who sent them (probably because some of them offer kickbacks when someone sends them business their way):

Tip accepted here:33TyVkHTqic4UNVB4UQ6QLLmXzaqmRY7F9


If you get a Bounty Manager from here please say that you've reached them through this thread made by me.

--snip---


I still see the ad there so who is going to take action on it? (I do not think Theymos has given permission for it.)
or OP of that thread need to clarify the situation. Anyways displaying ads in thread does not look good practice.

Here is the actual rule:
However, if you are using the forum as a publishing platform to host something really substantial and useful, selling ads in that substantial work is allowed. To be eligible for this, your post must be in a topic that you started, and your post must be substantial and long enough to make the ad seem entirely insignificant. If in doubt, ask me.
The same thing from this topic, this topic is mainly supported by the administration and I do not think he asked for permission to do so. ---->Overview of Bitcointalk Signature Anti-Spam Campaign Managers

I think we should differentiate between ads in this way and copying the signature code in each post as an alternative to signature campaign ads.

|     Advertisement     |

The anti spam campaign managers thread you referenced is very content heavy and IMO, meets the criteria for having an ad based on the current rules. The thread in the OP has only basic information fairly easily obtainable.

Theymos was apparently asked if it is acceptable to host an ad in the thread referenced in the OP, and I would presume theymos either gave permission or didn’t respond— even if the OP were to ignore a denial to host an ad, theymos would have been aware of it and could have removed it.

The rule says to ask if you are not sure if your thread is content heavy enough. The rule doesn’t say that you need to get permission ahead of time.


I would say if a lot of these types of threads start to pop up, then the rule should be reconsidered.

Instead of discouraged, I would say just not encourage it. It should be made clear that no matter how much you value your topic, it could still be unworthy. I would hope but won't hold my breath that people maybe add to older topics that have seen longevity or shown purpose rather than create new ones for this purpose.

More than just reviewing the rule you can follow theymos's quote back to the topic, where there was a bit of discussion surrounding it.

The rule was seemingly put in place after discussing it with dogie, who if your not familiar with created a ton of the original "How to for Miners". Which was without a doubt very useful information. There were also some examples of threads that were deemed not worthy put forth by ..... ummmm ..... well you can read it.

Honestly I'm not against this. If there is a substantial post that I get something out of that somebody creates and possibly maintains, then by all means earn a little something of advertising. Ideally we could some up with some guidelines/limitations on the formatting that'd be great.
