There should be a separate sub-forum for all the topics like these:

Where in the world is Satoshi?
Is Satoshi alive?
Is Satoshi really John Smith?
What if you can have a dinner with Mr Satoshi?

All those topics should be grouped together.

All these topics shouldn't exist beyond the first few. The problem is people continuously post the same trash over and over again. Best thing to do is report it as a duplicate/redundant thread to be locked or trashed. Don't even bother to reply as it just invites the same career spammers to pop in and repeat the same things over and over.

As with all sub-forum requests, I'm gonna ask a question - how many topics about Satoshi are currently on the first 3 or so pages of any board? Or on several boards combined? If there aren't enough topics (at least 20 on the frontpage and around 10 on later pages in my experience) to fill a board (meaning such topics do not dominate the discussion sphere of an existing board), what's the point of making a new section that'll be dead on arrival.

I was expecting this from being close or even has the idea about the making of the forum. Yes, I do agree that it should not be discussed the origins of the founders for this is beneficial to all users here in the forum. I would rather not talk about it also for I have my empathy on them knowing that their lives could be in danger if their identity will be known. Besides, the forum is working well with only theymos as sole admin known in this forum. Congrats to theymos as this is one big forum that he/she had and a lot of issues and concerns had been raised especially in the meta section of heavy ban appeals. If I am in theymos place then I will scratch my head even if it is not itchy with those spammers, scammers, fraudster and etc. around.

More standard examples:

What do you think Satoshi had for breakfast?
Is Satoshi really Bill Clinton?
I think Satoshi lives next-door to me.
How many Bitcoins do you think Satoshi has?

That would be annoying OP. If I were you, I will going to lock this thread and respect the global moderators with the post that help you in realizing instead. The satoshi topics had been discussed in this forum over and over again and even satoshi was link or known to be theymos but they do not have proof and that is one difficult to discuss without them giving us the idea on who are they.

Sub-boards should be able to stand on their own. They shouldn't be 1-2 pages long.
But the problem is, those threads are such crap anyway. That could be easily-truncated to a maximum of two threads.

No, they should just be locked and trashed.

Although, they've been rehashed over, and over again. I still think they were perfectly legitimate questions to begin with, and there was some decent discussion in the older topics. Nowadays these types of threads just invite low quality answers which have been repeated several times over by now. The only thing worth collecting is Satoshi quotes, which I believe we've already got a thread that just does that.

Most threads with good intentions should be locked within the first page.

Anything more than that and you are already in spam territory if the subject matter is as typical as "will price reach n" or "is satoshi x"

We already have a subboard for that purpose it's called Off-Topic board. Just do what I do, that's reporting any post I come across having similar title like those you listed above, to be moved there and majority of the time moderators do move them.

Such post only attracts spam/meaningless discussion as they're most time repeated discussion so offtopic is the perfect board for them e.g; Maybe Satoshi created the greatest prize competition

I'd generally agree that the Bitcoin Discussion section is in need of some TLC, but I'm okay with repeated topics as long as they're bringing noteworthy discussion. After all even repeated topics can lead to new insights, and discussions through those that reply. Unfortunately, as you imply the majority of threads over there aren't contributed nothing, but spam posts for users to get their activity up.

The only board I’ve seen where Satoshi (*) is included in the topic heavily is on Bitcoin Discussion. Looking over the first 10 pages of some of the sections, I make it:

Meta: 1 (this one)
Beginners & Help: 2 (one on the unit, one on the charater).
Bitcoin Discussion: 25

(*) The Nature is multiple: Speculative (the majority), historical compilation, subdivision of BTC, colouring books by Satoshi (nom de plume I figure), and so on.

The volume won’t justify a distinct forum level not child board. If any of the related threads are utter nonsense, then they can be reported and perhaps may end up deleted.

Those are all threads of speculative nature, I dont see how they would bring any quality discussions for them to deserve their own sub forum.
I actually thought this thread was about moving everything Satoshi wrote to a new board, which would make more sense even though you can see everything he ever wrote just by checking out his profile.

There is a useless Satoshi topic on practically every page of the Bitcoin Discussion forum.

What color tshirt did Satoshi wear?
What was Satoshi's IP address?
Does Satoshi drink coffee with cream and sugar?

Report so they can be trashed. Don't move the problem somewhere else: get rid of it directly.

Plus, unless it's making up a significant chunk of each page (and hence the board) it's not worth it. I'd say that if it's not covering more than 30% of the pages on average, then it's not a concern. (or at least big enough to address a prospective sub-board)

I agree with this I suppose. It is just a lot of topics to moderate that nobody gets to.

Did Satoshi use a Dell computer?
Does Satoshi's third cousin live in Delaware?
Is Satoshi alive right now?

I believe hilariousandco trashed a number of useless threads that were only really used for spam. They might be willing to do the same this time, on those threads, if you report the first post.

Any thread that exists so that spammers can subsist upon it should be immediately removed.

What if you can have a dinner with Mr Satoshi?

All those topics should be grouped together.

And the section should be called post fillers because its the kind of topics that forum members go to fill in their post requirements for their sig campaign. Just look at your example topics all of them can just be answered with just an opinion or mere speculation on what they believe is happening with Satoshi. The whole section will be filled with worthless post and answers from forum members who aren't really interested in the topic.
