It's well known that the shitposters are suspected to give a shit whether anyone will reply to their posts in a spam megathread or not so I had the idea to make an experiment: Asking them questions and get a proof how serious the problem is or if our suspicion will be proven wrong. (My experiment took place before the YoShit disaster).

Finally, we can get an official proof if we were right, suspecting them ignorance to stop following the "discussion" after they have submitted their one-liners.

I've asked 11 of them questions where I had no doubt that a normal user would reply. (I used my alt account 0xmiau because I couldn't bother my main account to post there and wade through the shitposts.)

I've tried to make it as simple as possible for them to answer and only replied to posts where my reply is directly below theirs. After I quoted them I waited a week for their reply.

Here is my result:

Now with the arrival of the crypto of spring-everything starts to gain momentum.The best and easiest way to accumulate altcoin is to take part in a bantikompaniya or participate in ico.I choose the best ico and at the very beginning I go to the maximum.You can buy at the beginning of the company very successful coins - for a little money.Now is a good time to start saving coins.
Can you please enlighten me what means bantikompaniya?? Never heard this word but I have a guess already...

That's understandable. Many projects are not worth a cent. During the hyip began the emergence of a huge number of meaningless projects. Time will kill them.
as far as I know, not all of the coins until now are worth zero. because until now altcoin is still standing and used by many people even though there are many problems that always occur in altcoin so far.
The last part is true, most altcoins have huge problems because they were only issued for the sake of issuing another altcoin. While I agree to your last part, the previous part of your comment is totally contradictionary. 95% of all Altcoins are dead more or less in my opinion.
Why do you have the assumption that "altcoin is still standing and used by many people"?

I don't see that happening  but Crypto at times does magic that suprises us but  for me it's like a dream that will never come true
Then, I'm wondering why you're still here on Bitcointalk if it's your dream that a centralized shitcoin like XRP will defeat Bitcoin. Ok, maybe your post wasn't thoughtful and just typed in a few seconds to spam the forum and collect worthless ICO shitcoins?
And please tell me only one good reason why it would be positive if XRP defeats Bitcoin.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

If you see that your coin falls in price and the fall will continue further, then it makes sense to sell it and then buy at a cheaper price. Thus, you will have on your hands the same amount of coins, as well as profit from the difference in the price of sale and purchase.
Your advice sounds easy at the first view but is very difficult to do. How are you sure that the price will drop further? It's also possible that the price will go up again just after you sold. Do you have a strategy to know if the price will keep decreasing?

Of course, errors in the world of cryptocurrency are very expensive. But if you do not do them, you will not learn anything. All normal profits from a long experience. And this is a normal situation.
Not definitely, it's also a security measure to test new things with little amounts of money and if someone makes a mistake the loss won't hurt much but you've still learned your lesson. And to avoid even more losses it's better to read much before money can be lost.

Or may I ask where do you think own mistakes are better to learn from?

Most of the people said in this board there will be no bull run in the late of 2018 and there is a high probability that bull run comes in mid-2019. What's your thought about it?

Last year many people thought that by the end of 2018 there will be a bull run. But that didn't happen and the price was still very low. Banteng is one that is expected to be coming soon and now the market is in very good condition. But I don't think the bull is there and it still takes a long time.
May I ask what's Banteng? Is it good for us or should we be afraid that Banteng is coming soon?  Cheesy
No reply, but someone else replied. There is still a chance that the user would have replied if someone else didn’t reply instead:

personally i think ethereum is way more undervalued in comparison with bit[Suspicious link removed]d luck for everyone like me how still believe in the future of the ethereum blockchain and ecosystem Smiley
Why do you think ETH is way more undervalued in comparison with Bitcoin? ETH has still some more problems than Bitcoin and I would be surprised if there are reasons why it's undervalued. Which reasons do you have for your assumption?

The recent introduction and success of IEO proves this right, because the exchanges validate the projects, so investor feel safe to invest their money.
Also a research done by exchanges is still no guarantee that the listed projects are legit and even if they are legit there's still an option that they fail. The exchange can't do anything if the developers are bad. In Germany, we had a big ICO, they collected 40 million $ advertised on big German websites and finally the project is now almost failed. It's likely that every exchange would have listed them because it seemed like a good project but it wasn't.
Why are you sure that exchanges will be a guarantee for successful projects?

Bitcoin and Ethereum are way too volatile for my liking with a potential to return little profit with high risk. I rather discover gems like any coin and invest in it.
Ok, so your reason why you dislike investing in BTC and ETH is because they are too volatile? But actually, most shitcoins are much more volatile and their price can be easily manipulated by pump and dump. May I ask you why you think that random / unknown coins are less volatile than BTC / ETH? I think it's quite the opposite.  Cheesy

I understand that people needs to makes the forum lively and create topics that will generate constructive comments for study purpose but there are some things we know that is not a point to contend with, like this, how can someone compare ETH to BTC, ever since ETH was created, has there been any development that they have achieved that has made them grow more than they are now, but look at BTC, every little development shows immediately in its value at stretch.

At bottom line, I am not saying that ethereum is not good, they are good and cannot perform more than 10% of bitcoin task.
I agree to your opinion about BTC and ETH that there is no reason why ETH should be better than BTC and I don't see any reasons in the future. The move to PoS will be very difficult and bring up some more serious issues for ETH.
However, regarding your first part. I don't think it will happen that some people will generate constructive comments in Altcoin discussion, especially when the title is so generic like Bitcoin vs Ethereum. They will just use it to post the well-known meaningless one-liners.
And while I've read OP again and had already a bad feeling that it's something we know very well here already, I've checked it and it's true:

OP is a plagiarizer, same content found here: https://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/031416/bitcoin-vs-ethereum-driven-different-purposes.asp
Website archived: http://archive.is/eT7DY#selection-2437.6-2437.475

OP archived: http://archive.is/Rl7f0#selection-511.0-511.469

So what do you think? Is OP really creating a topic to discuss something or is it just to make a place for another bunch of shitposts? :

I do not understand how locking a bounty thread  can even affect anything at all. Reports are sent to the bounty branch, even after the bounty has ended, what prevention of price fall can we talk about ...
LOOOOL, locking the rewards not the bounty thread, bro!  Cheesy Cheesy
You gave me a good laugh.  Cheesy

Price of the token won't be affected in any way if their bounty thread is locked, OP meant locking the bounty tokens sent to bounty hunters to prevent a dump because they can't sell for a fixed time after they received their rewards.

I think it was just a confusion, does it make more sense to you now after my explanation?
I got a reply:

Oh yes, my mistake, I did not correctly read the name of the branch, haha. I apologize for this embarrassment.
http://archive.is/cP6Gg#selection-5195.0-5195.49



Conclusion: out of 11 users 10 didn’t reply. I know, the result is not very representative but if someone is interested to do a similar experiment, feel free to do it.
And the recently launched YoShitShow is almost a guarantee that the issues won't get better...

Expected. Smiley

Most of them just jump from thread to thread posting any nonsense they wasted 30 seconds thinking about until they fill their weekly "quota" of posts.

Or do you really think 95% of the Bitcoin Discussion frequenters are actually having a discussion, reading and replying to each other?

The worst part is when they actually spread misinformation (it's crazy the amount of incorrect shit or bad suggestions they give). I try correcting them when I see this kind of stuff, but they never come back.

I once gave someone a Neutral tag because of the amount of misinformation he spread.

Honestly, I'm starting to think these "experiments" on shitposters are just shitposts themselves. You aren't helping the problem lmao, they won't stop shitposting so that makes your post pointless. I've seen at least 50 of these posts today about things like yobit and people posting crap, just stop.

Maybe a call out for the problem? Some people just deny the truth about the forum being full of those shitposters.

On the other side, that's what I would call an example of a shitpost:
yes gambling is entertainment, people gamble because its fun and it "entertains" them...

The lack of real back-and-forth discussion was one of the first things I noticed about this forum, and that was probably even before I created this account.  It was weird to me, because most discussion forums have threads in which people are actually having a conversation and often they even seemed to know each other on a personal level (I'm thinking of several forums not related to crypto).  And then eventually I figured out why: signature campaigns.  Nuff said.

It isn't just shitposters who don't reply, either.  Good posters who just make a lot of posts may not return to a thread that someone asked them a question in.  And I guarantee you I've missed some questions that members have asked me in some threads.  It just happens when there are so many threads and posts like there are on this forum.

I'm all for science and experimentation, but this was a teaspoon of weak sauce, OP.  No offense, I know you meant well.

Ah, give him a break.  And the Yobit stuff will eventually die down, just like every drama does around here.

As "excuse" if someone doesn't reply sometimes is that the number of people leaving comments in a thread just kills the discussion. In the German section we have also some good discussion threads and an hour later there are 30 new replies. If I start answering all the people who have quoted me that is sometimes a bit confusing for the discussion so I think in some cases people tend to refrain answering if it's not necessary.

Yes, we can't help, the forum is lost if the shitposters go for their hunt... xD
If you have effective ideas to help and prevent shitposts while the traffic on Bitcointalk stays high I would appreciate it if you share it.

In my opinion, the problem is a missing notification if we are quoted. I'm sure the people interested in a good discussion will reply if they get a notification that someone quoted them and asked an important question, it's not the lack of interest to reply.
Of course, that won't solve the shitposter problem - they won't reply even if they get notifications all the time. In addition, they are quoted mostly by other shitposters.
I know about the tool from Piggy but I would prefer in-forum solutions so I keep checking all the threads myself (still possible to miss questions)

I'm all for science and experimentation, but this was a teaspoon of weak sauce, OP.  No offense, I know you meant well.
I guess I've just chosen the worst point of time to post it.  Cheesy
I didn't know that there will be the big YoBit issues when I had the idea and started to prepare the topic around 2 weeks ago. But on the other hand it's obvious that we have to be prepared much better if the bull market starts. There are still so many accounts waiting to get back to business (maybe bought accounts) and they are not interested in making quality posts :/

Great findings there, but you seem to be missing an important factor which is the fact that they might not even notice your question, not saying they would have answered, but there is still  a chance.

Not too long ago , before i started using piggy's notification bot, i am pretty sure i missed a lot, i am below average in terms of (how to use the forum) - up to this moment i don't know how to see if someone mentioned my name somewhere, and i do post in a few sections so there is no way for me to remember every post i make then go back to check if someone said something to me.

But it is pretty much safe to assume that your results are fairly accurate by at least 80% at worst case scenario.

Excellent way to judge - if someone posts a reply or even asks a question and straight up fails to revisit it - they've either forgotten or they're too busy creating dead-end replies elsewhere. Someone above said "these experiments are just shitposts themselves". Everything can be a shitpost at the end of the day (this is why most forums don't have big markets - if at all - for user signatures).

These guys are the worst kind of shitposters after they drop the bombs (Spams) they're nowhere to be found, as long as they fulfill the post quota for that week, they will not care whether someone had a question or a suggestion on their posts.

So it will continue like this, the real thread that has some value on it will be buried with this nonsense thread created by some greedy spammers who only think money is worth dying for.

I can assure you that the "shitposters" very much care if someone replies to one of their posts. The reason they care is because if you reply to their posts, they can respond to what you said for another easy/quick post.

I think there may be a couple of reasons you received so few replies:
1 - you posted in fairly large threads in which it is difficult to even a "normal" person to find a response to what you say. These "shitposters" want to spend as little time writing each post as possible, and going back multiple pages to look for a response takes time. I suspect you would get different results if you replied to these users in a smaller thread.
2 - There is a 20 post per day limit as to how many posts each account will be paid for. I don't think many in this campaign will make much more than 20 per day, or even look at the forum from that account once they make 20 posts that day. If you wait a day or two, you may see a couple more responses

I can not really agree to this, simply put , a valid question from a non shitposter requires both time and effort to reply to, if i wanted to increase my post count asap i would ignore 1miau's question and stick to the regular ( very promising project sir, i hope price will increase because of the adoption) kind of b.s .

Your theory would make sense if there was a lack of topics to post in, which is not the case, so this  IMO renders your theory invalid.

Maybe, but I had the impression that also smaller threads start to get more pages very soon if you can't get a first page reply.

I don't think many in this campaign will make much more than 20 per day, or even look at the forum from that account once they make 20 posts that day.

My experiment took place way before the YoShit Signature Campaign (April 11 + April 12) and is not related to it. It migh be a strange coincidence that YoBit starts their spam campaign just after I started to do the experiment.
And I've waited 10 days for their replies if you look at the date of my posts in the OP...

Most threads do not get that many pages of replies.

In my experience, most threads that are titled with a question, especially those that can be answered "yes or no" will not have a lot of meaningful discussion. Looking at the other threads you (I assume 0xmiau is you) posted in, I am not especially surprised you didn't receive a response. 
2 - There is a 20 post per day limit as to how many posts each account will be paid for. I don't think many in this campaign will make much more than 20 per day, or even look at the forum from that account once they make 20 posts that day. If you wait a day or two, you may see a couple more responses
My experiment took place way before the YoShit Signature Campaign (April 11 + April 12) and is not related to it. It migh be a strange coincidence that YoBit starts their spam campaign just after I started to do the experiment.
And I've waited 10 days for their replies if you look at the date of my posts in the OP...
Ahh, that is my bad -- I only assumed this was related to the yobit spammers because that is what most threads are about right now.

I looked more closely at the posts you replied to, and they are especially bad.

My experience with shitposters more closely resembles what happened here by "brewins". I have seen other signature spammers act similarly in that they would ask a series of questions in a marketplace thread for something they had not interest in.

I had always assumed most signature spammers have at least a very basic understanding of bitcoin, but this is perhaps not true (anymore). Ever since I saw this thread, I have suspected some of the bounty hunter spammers are being paid by a third party, and the same forum account may not even be used by the same spammer from day to day. If someone does not even have a basic understanding of bitcoin/crypto currencies, they are not going to be able to engage in a conversation with you -- if they try they will look (more) stupid.

Great findings there, but you seem to be missing an important factor which is the fact that they might not even notice your question, not saying they would have answered, but there is still  a chance.

Not too long ago , before i started using piggy's notification bot, i am pretty sure i missed a lot, i am below average in terms of (how to use the forum) - up to this moment i don't know how to see if someone mentioned my name somewhere, and i do post in a few sections so there is no way for me to remember every post i make then go back to check if someone said something to me.

But it is pretty much safe to assume that your results are fairly accurate by at least 80% at worst case scenario.

it is not just about answering that particular question though. the point is lack of communication. basically when you create a topic, specially a question or a discussion that you found interesting, you come back and "communicate" with others who posted a reply in your topic not just the one. but when you don't, that can be a good indication that the topic was just a spam.
i have actually used this method to determine whether a topic is a spam or not before reporting it as "low quality topic".

In my opinion, the problem is a missing notification if we are quoted. I'm sure the people interested in a good discussion will reply if they get a notification that someone quoted them and asked an important question, it's not the lack of interest to reply.
Of course, that won't solve the shitposter problem - they won't reply even if they get notifications all the time. In addition, they are quoted mostly by other shitposters.
I know about the tool from Piggy but I would prefer in-forum solutions so I keep checking all the threads myself (still possible to miss questions)




while i agree with the part about the notification system (i honestly forget to even check it) but a couple things.. what about the just busy author who saw the one gold coin under the name and just glanced on by. I think the rankings also have played into this outcome. Hate to say it but if you aren.t a 2 gold or higher a lot of people just dont really pay you any attention. this isnt ALWAYS the case but it does happen. Also im guilty of this one too, i usually stop reading after the quot is done.. maybe two... but 3 yeah screw that move on to the next.. as you  may notice in the reply my quote  here is from... i stopped reading after the quoted statement

The lack of real back-and-forth discussion was one of the first things I noticed about this forum,

I did notice that too that's why each time I start a discussion (topic) I do leave room for contribution from other members to make that thread interactive not that I don't have all the point needed for that topic to be perfect. Also I prefer replying to replies in threads instead of OP unless it's the type of topic that needs direct reply. Again looking at these users post history you can easy identify those shitposters (mainly posting because they are paid to) even though their post have some little sense to it, they just move around the forum replying in any board they find discussion they can contribute to but the average none shitposters post history are always similar in regards to boards and sometimes threads he/she posts in.

Shitposters mostly don't care about the odds to get informative replies for their questions, or posts, what they mostly care about are their weekly (pay per week campaigns) or daily (pay per post campaigns) quota. Sometimes, I saw shitposters reply to answer for their original posts, so maybe (just maybe) small part of shitposters care about replies to their original posts. It might save their time (seconds) to find new topic to join and spam if their previous posts got replies. Nevertheless, in general having replies or no replies does not matter with shitposters, whom usually even don't spend their time to read OPs, or just fews posts in the last page before typing their shitposts.

They even don't care to click on the "Show new replies to your posts"!
It wil be very interesting if the Profile page has new line for: Total times you click on the 'Show new replies to your posts'. It might become one of useful factors to point out potential shit posters. However, this figure might contain several bias factors, but I don't think bias will be significant large, because shitposters will probably don't care to spend their time to click on that button to create fake statistics for their accounts. Instead, they are busy with their shit-post composing works.
Most of them just jump from thread to thread posting any nonsense they wasted 30 seconds thinking about until they fill their weekly "quota" of posts.

how does what they chose to post on an indication of being a "shitposter"? wouldnt it be more of the content of what they post? and isnt that what we are doing? moving the forum finding something we feel we can contribute to? and im a little confused are we speaking of the author being a shitposter or the commenter?

Maybe a call out for the problem? Some people just deny the truth about the forum being full of those shitposters.
The irrefutable truth is that most of these perceived "shitposters" don't know how not to post what you term shitposts. Remember that level of intellect differs. We have to believe they may not be doing it deliberately.

How does this work? Do you get a notification via email or in the forum once you're logged in?
