The thread has still been constructed.

Local rules:
- It is not a self-moderated thread, because Meta board does not allow self-moderated ones; but if one spams here, I will report spam posts to moderators.

New forum software
Beta of new forum software now officially open
There are at least two trial forums that use Epochtalk's source codes:

Rank system
The bitcointalk.org forum created in 2019, on 22th November 2009, by now it has had three significant changes in its rank system.
1. November 22, 2009 - January 22, 2018: Without activity requirements
Welcome to the new Bitcoin forum!
2. June 18, 2013 - January 23, 2018: Activity requirements
Activity & new membergroup limits
3. January 24, 2018 - September 16, 2018: Activity requirements + Merit requirements
Merit & new rank requirements
4. September 17, 2018 - by now: Users have to earn at least one merit to become Junior Members (if enough activities)
Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements
For more details, please see:
History of bitcointalk.org's rank system


Merit system
1. Merit & new rank requirements
2. Enhanced newbie restrictions & requirements
For more, please see:


Trust system
1. Original Trust system
2. Default Trust change;
3. Trust flags (from which we have flags that have separate and different functions than Trust, feedback, to avoid misusing)
I highly recommend the guide from LoyceV: LoyceV's Beginners guide to correct use of the Trust system


Bump changes
I am not sure when bump rules first applied, but maybe here:
1. Marketplace rules and guidelines (first version of bump rules)
2. Unofficial list of (official) Bitcointalk.org rules, guidelines, FAQ
13. Bumps, "updates" are limited to once per 24 hours.[2]
21. Old bumps should be deleted. [2]
22. Advertising (this includes mining pools, gambling services, exchanges, shops, etc.) in others threads' is no longer allowed, including, but not limited to, in altcoin announcement threads. [8]
3. Bumping changes on some boards (bump button & bump score)
This idea to build up a bump button and bump score began here:
community generated suggestions to improve the forum (+ eventual voting on them)
An example: a bump button sounds good as a fix for certain very visible problems, but it also codifies a broken system. People would use bots to bump all of their threads constantly, giving "industrial" posters a huge advantage over casual posters. A captcha could maybe help a little, but there are services where you can pay a tiny fee to have captchas solved for you. (Which opens another question: maybe a comparatively tiny fee should be allowed as an alternative to having you solve a captcha.) A better solution would be to replace the concept of traditional bumping with something quite different, with different bumping models for different types of sections. But that requires further thought. If implementing a bump button was free, perhaps it'd be worthwhile to at least do it for now and fix a few minor problems with bumping today. But since it's a clearly-imperfect solution, this isn't even on my miles-long to-do list.
And there: Ideas for topic ordering in altcoin announcements?

As usual , you made a great nice job tranthidung ☺️
All my respect Sir .

I would like to suggest adding another element to your list which is about "Local Boards" if you can collect data about them. Personally, i don't know what non-English board has been created first or when/how hire mods.
As an example , and as far as i can remember, my local board "arabic" has been created in 2017, and i think this info should be displayed in your list if you can provide further details. Same thing with other boards.
It would also be good if you can find data about first to latest created boards and sub_boards. This should also belong to the forum great changes.

Funny, I asked myself the same question a few days ago. For that you can look at the ids of the local section. 
For example :
Russian section: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=10.0 (id: 10)
French section; https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=13.0 (id: 13)
Arabic section: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=241.0 (id: 241)

It will give you an idea.

I actually went on a (mini)quest this past summer to find a thread that contained the original petition for the Spanish local board (if there was such a petition). I found it, at the time, on Meta: Please create a Local/Castellano (Spanish) forum.

Side note: While at it, I found this gem: Who's the Spanish jerk draining the Faucet?

I think this should count as a new addition to historical change in Badge. (Although it is yet to be fully implemented)

5 art-contest-winner badges will be assigned to the winners of this voting.


Restrictions on signature in some board
The link for ‘Rules for serious discussion and Ivory tower is wrong. You might want to correct it to; https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2722359.0.


Important to note that, Bitcointalk.org wasn’t a day’s job, most of the changes made resulted from ‘in-use’ challenges and from complaints from forum users. Most had to go through the polls, and some others were solutions suggested by the forum community, showing it’s a community decision. So if you’re new (or old) to the forum, you should appreciate the effort of older users and Theymos (who single handedly did the coding and Ann, except that done by Satoshi). Finally, the new software development would depend on lessons learnt here; community effort.

I hope there are days when your coffee tastes like magic, your playlist makes you dance, strangers make you smile, and the nightsky touches your soul.

Thanks @Bightening for pointing out my incorrect link; @coupable, @Halab and @DdmrDdmr for creative ideas.

That was amazingly fast !! But how you grab all this data in a very short time !!  Organise it in a wonderful way !! You don't even seems to make a lot of edits after publish !! Anyway, this really amazes me bro.
Now, it just lacks that you add the link to local boards history here to the main list so to have a full organised list.

Seems that cannot determine the order of creation of different local boards using their Ids.
According to History of local boards which was posted by tranthidung, German board has been created on 09/10/2010 and Russian board has been created on 29/6/2011 while their Ids are 16 and 10 respectively.

According to History of local boards which was posted by tranthidung, German board has been created on 09/10/2010 and Russian board has been created on 29/6/2011 while their Ids are 16 and 10 respectively.  

Russian board was created first according to Veleor

The actual date of birthday of the Russian local is July 28, 2010

It's interesting that so many Russians have shown interest in the project. Thinking about the Russian culture and society, I'm not completely surprised why. I'll make a new board, let's see how many non-English-speaking users we'll get.

The first topic in the Russian local.
