The few times I started a topic to ask a genuine question, I saw plenty of replies, most of them off topic, most of them very dumb (sorry), looks like a lot of morons posters there (sorry again), it's like parrots or bots posting without having a clue.

If I had a ban hammer here I would ban 80% of the posters for flooding, or for just being stupid bots.

Hope something can be done. Thanks for reading anyway!  Kiss

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Whenever you see an off-topic dumb post, just report it to the moderator. I would not said that but it seems like you have care about this forum so you came here to point it out.
Hope something can be done.


As a newbie/Jr. you will have restriction to post/report but if you PM a mod then they can whitelist your username so that you do not get caught on newbie restriction while you report off - topic posts. You are welcome.

It depends. Not each of the board is flooding with spam. Altcoin discussion and Bitcoin discussion boards are having the most spam because of the signature spammer.
However, in most of the boards, you can create self moderated thread where you can delete the spam posts and get a good discussion.

A lot of posts are deleted on daily basis.
A lot of accounts are banned too.
But mods are simply human. And you have to help them, and you have to learn your ways around.

There are some tools you should start using:
- report to moderator the worthless / off topic / spam posts
- close your threads after they got answered
- ignore the users that don't bring anything valuable into discussions

Edit: I forgot about it:
- in your profile, edit the list of subforum/boards you want to ignore/stop seeing.

1 down, 499 to go   Like my chances. Rome was not built in a day after all.



Wear appropriate signature :                     Will wear if accepted
Wear avatar :                                           Will wear if accepted
But first can you tell us how will you do this?to Wear Signature and Avatar?being a Newbie account I think this is more than impossible

You can try other campaign mate but not a Signature campaign because wearing those are the main reason for participating here..

Goodluck
I'll negotiate with the administrator of this website. I like my chances. Always do.
Noone is going to change the rules for you. Not me nor the Admin of the site. You gotta pay your dues to be eligible for campaigns

Fair enough, had to try anyway. Trying is always the best mindset to have. Too many people give up way too easily!

 It should always be possible to make exceptions when posters of the highest quality apply. I mean instant upgrade from Newbie to Full member.

...I appreciate the prompt answer though. Best of luck, and have a wonderful week!!!!  Cool

Wow a diva in our mids thinking that he can change the rules because he thinks he is a better poster, why not read how the forum works first and if you think if you are the best poster with the highest quality then why not give us example of your post and if it deserves merit then you rank in just a matter of days, not asking admins, managers bent the rules to accommodate you.

I don't see anything extraordinary in your posts https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2525660;sa=showPosts

If I had a ban hammer here I would ban 80% of the posters for flooding, or for just being stupid bots.
If you want to ban all members here, then who wants to laugh again see your post.

It's your baseless point. Why close? Altcoin board is important part of the forum. The problem is spam, not the board. Better signature campaign manager like DarkStar_ or off signature from the forum.

And what's the source of the spam?

If we test a signature ban for a month... the forum would look a lot better.
But if we delete the Altcoin board... then you'll see everything scatter to the other sections. It's like the case with investor-based games and gambling discussion. The boards house the spam. Roll Eyes

That's what I was talking about as well. Deleting the board will result spam in all over the forum as long as signature campaign is there. Since theymos isn't much interested in off signature, would be better to have a anti spam campaign manager.

But airdrops and bounties aren't hampering any discussion on the forum, are they? For both of these, forum has individual board and those craps are posted there. How they are hampering the discussion?

They cause collateral damage. People taking part in this crap have to post in other sections in order to get their free shit!!  Tongue

Come on mate. I am saying the same, only signature campaign required to post in the other section of the forum. No other campaign requires to post on other section than the bounty board.
If signature option get off, problem will be solved.

looks like a lot of morons posters there (sorry again), it's like parrots or bots posting without having a clue.
Yep, you hit the nail on the head.  I'm not certain they're morons so much as being lazy and uninterested in what they're posting.  You have to understand that most posts on this forum are made for money earned through bounties, and this attracts a lot of members who don't know a lot of English but who try to post in that language anyway.  I joined the forum in 2015 and I'd noticed exactly what you pointed out even before then.

Avoid sections like Bitcoin/Altcoin Discussion if you're looking for good stuff to read, and Economics and Speculation are pretty close to being unreadable.  Sometimes members post good news articles in Economics, but the replies are usually very bad.

If signature option get off, problem will be solved.
That's true, but it's not a solution Theymos is considering.  It's been proposed by a number of members since I've been around, but it's what brings a lot of traffic to bitcointalk and no doubt drives a not-insignificant amount of the bitcoin and/or altcoin economy.

What I don't understand is how bounties are at all a worthy endeavor, for anybody.

As with other social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.), bounty hunters are just advertising their projects to each other. Nobody else is paying attention. If you're not a member, what are the chances you're going to wade through pages of crap in Altcoin Discussion (and sadly, Bitcoin Discussion to a large degree) in order to find one morsel of semi-useful information?

Oh, you're this guy:

It should always be possible to make exceptions when posters of the highest quality apply. I mean instant upgrade from Newbie to Full member.

Well you should thank me, I mocked one of your sig campaign pleas and it earned you some pity merits in the process. (It actually earned you Member status).

The few times I started a topic to ask a genuine question, I saw plenty of replies, most of them off topic, most of them very dumb (sorry), looks like a lot of morons post there (sorry again), it's like parrots or bots posting without having a clue.

If I had a ban hammer here I would ban 80% of the posters for flooding, or for just being stupid bots.

Hope something can be done. Thanks for reading anyway!  Kiss

Now I can smell a French post just by the negativity into it.
