First of all, a very Happy New Year to all of you. Thank you for visiting this thread.

I am making this post on 1st January 2020 and I want to take advantage of the opportunity to wish 2020 brings the best for all of you, all of your families and all of your loved ones too. I am wishing you and them the best in health, finances, happiness and success in everything wished and strived for.

On a personal level, I would like to thank each and every one of you that has contributed to our forum in a positive light. This forum is a great environment, it belongs to all of us and it is a place that is special to those who appreciate all that is has become over the years.

With the exceptions of the trolls, scams, scammers and those who are generally condescending and deliberately provocative - there is not much negative to say. I hope Bitcointalk Forum has a bright future ahead of it  Wink

A SNIPPET OF MY CRYPTO & BITCOINTALK FORUM JOURNEY:
I first registered here in 2013 as Bitcoin was a word being used more and more in mainstream. I was an active member of what was then a growing community. I had a nice tidy portfolio of Bitcoin and many other crypto which was worth a lot of USD$. I sat and watched the value of my portfolio rocket to double figures over what I invested initially because more and more people were beginning to invest in crypto but sadly became one of the many Cryptsy Exchange victims and lost everything I built up as it was stored in Cryptsy and they scammed everybody: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1173703.0

It was only thanks to some good fortune I had some crypto on wallets I held elsewhere but I left them as they were not valued much and then tried forget all about crypto because I did not want to build up another portfolio only to see it possibly stolen again at another exchange. Years later as Bitcoin was making huge waves in mainstream media again, I decided to start looking in to it again. I managed to retrieve my crypto which was not stored at (and thankfully not stolen by) Cryptsy only to find myself to sitting on a small fortune which was much bigger than the loss of original portfolio that Cryptsy stole from me.

After I noticed crypto prices going up I wanted to start trading again and found myself back at this forum for obvious reasons. I tried logging in to this forum after a long time away but it flagged up as me being locked out because of suspicious activity which was understandable because of the time period between the previous time logging in. I tried resetting the email address but nothing worked so I created a new account and registered on 31st May 2017 as JollyGood and have engaged with all sorts of users here.

BITCOINTALK FORUM SCAMS & SCAMMERS:
I think it was a few weeks in to my journey here that I took an interest in betking (and its owner/operator serial scammer Dean Nolan). I saw the number of betking promotions and signatures that so many campaign participants were displaying and read the posts being made in their ICO thread as well as the ICO deal - it was probably serial scammer Dean Nolan and his betking ICO scam in 2017 that first alerted me to how easy it was to portray to be reputable and honest but at the same time how easy it was to effectively steal millions of USD$ from gullible investors. Until then I had heard of the acronym "ICO" in passing but never understood what it actually was. After some research, I knew exactly what it was...

I noticed scams in the forum before then but none had the alleged positive reputation that serial scammer Dean Nolan had because of his previous action of returning thousands of Bitcoin back to their rightful owners (bankroll investors). To me the whole betking ICO thing was a super scam so I asked some questions, that was when serial scammer Dean Nolan threw toys out of his pram before spitting out his dummy and throwing a tantrum of colossus proportions without answering simple questions I put forward.

As time went by, somewhere along the line I took far more interest in exposing scams or participating in those types of threads rather than just post about non-scam related issues and created several scam threads asking users to avoid falling in their trap. At some later stage I also created my own Scam Alert thread to list all the ones I was participating in exposing: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5146438.0

I think it was less than 3 months ago I found myself as DT1 and that adds more responsibility on how to tag and leave appropriate feedback. I am extremely thankful for those members that trust me and advise me, thanks to their guidance, goodwill and support I have been able to continue to contribute to this forum.

NEWBIES & LOW RANKED USERS:
For all those who are new to this forum or those that have been around for some time and are hoping to increase in rank, please be patient and please continue on your path here of discovery trying to be as helpful and as courteous as possible. All of us will have an off-day or two and it might reflect in our posts but that does not make us bad or untrustworthy but it is important to be yourself and always try your best to be as genuine as you can and that is a quality the members of this forum will see shine through. Sooner or later your ranking will go up, just be patient and enjoy the ride....

SENIOR EXPERIENCED USERS:
For all those that have been around here in the forum far longer than me and have contributed far more than I have, I hope you continue to protect the integrity of this forum and continue to contribute positively towards its ever growing member base. Without all of what you have given to this forum over the years and without all of what you have contributed to this forum over the years it would never have achieved the status it has today therefore a very big and heart-felt thank you to each and every one of you for all you have given to help everybody here.

We all have a duty to protect the reputation of this forum so I humbly request that we always try to protect newbies and gullible people from being victims of scams so I hope we always come together to fight to expose scams and scammers wherever we see them.

SCAMMER OWNED BOUNTY CAMPAIGNS:
Recently, towards the last quarter of 2019 unfortunately some scams have tried to use bounty campaigns as indirect bribes just to divide our community with those on one side that actively promoted the scams and those on the opposite side categorically refused to accept money from scammers and never retracted their scam accusations. The sad part was reading posts from members who had previously good reputation now trying to justify their association with scammers but there was no justification ever provided that was ever genuine, they simply became greedy and wanted money.

Let us hope those members that surrendered their morals and values for the sake of pennies from scammers in 2019 never ever allow themselves to stoop so low again because our forum is much stronger when we stand together and it is definitely much weaker when we are divided. I implore those members to wipe the slate clean for 2020 and ask them to stop associating with scammers either directly or indirectly as promoters, signature promoters, affiliates or associates.

We all should also hope 2020 will be the year the forum owners/operators will clamp down on the scammers that are using this forum as a vehicle to carry out their scams and modern day thefts by using Announcement threads and signature campaigns and promotions to spread the lies and propaganda to carry out their scams.

MERIT ABUSERS & FAKE TRUST:
Merit abuse and fake Trust exchanging between small circles of alt-accounts or like-for-like minded bullies/scammers is taking its toll too because several users that clearly pass merit between each and leave positive Trust for each other have gained DT1 and have even sent PMs threatening other users to retract various comments otherwise they will receive negative feedback.

As an example of merit abuse it was mentioned in the following OP by LoyceV about how user wolwoo had "earned" and then abused his DT1 ranking (which has subsequently just recently been revoked because too many DT1 users distrust him probably because of his condescending conduct) and how he had abused that DT1 ranking with retaliatory feedback: Reference topic: Why are these members excluded on trust lists?

In a spectacular turn of events, the user wolwoo requested to be given Merit Source status even though he was outed as being part of a small circle of merit abuse and Trust collusion team: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5205906.0

I hope 2020 is the year this practice of merit abuse circles and fake trust circles stop or the owners/operators of the forum forcibly take action to put a stop to it.




Finally on a slightly different note, until 31st December 2019 (New Years Eve) my rank was Senior Member but just a few hours in to 1st January 2020 (New Years Day) I was ranked a Hero member. What a day to get there. Thank you all for being part of my journey here in the forum as I headed towards becoming a Hero member on New Years Day of all days. I hope to be able to contribute positively towards our forum for a long time to come and hope you all will be able to do the same too.

Thank you dear Bitcointalk Forum

Congrats on making Hero mate, you deserve it. I’ve been well aware of the good work you do here for a long time. Pretty sure I added you to my trust list when your account was really low ranked. You’ve done really well to become a Hero now!

May I wish you a Happy NY & ask you to continue doing exactly what you do.

You’re a vital cog in the bitcointalk.org machine.

Thanks!

Thank you for your support and kind words LFC_Bitcoin - it means a lot.

You are right when you said you added me to your Trust list when my account was ranked fairly low. You were one of the first highly ranked users that trusted me after noticing some of the scam alert contributions I made in the forum.

It was the Trust I received early on from several users including yourself that worked as a confidence booster which enabled me to carry on trying to contribute to the forum. As time went by other members with high rankings began noticing some of my contributions too and here I am today.

Happy New Year. Keep up the good work you do too. Thank you Smiley

I totally agree with you on this, and I hope this will change.
Maybe Theymos should make some trust system upgrade for this.

Thank you, it is very kind of you say such kind words.

Forgive me but I would like to stress the importance of not allowing certain projects (including the one you are currently displaying in your signature) a foothold in the forum because of the negative posts being about them on a regular basis. Just their advertised work practices for their investbox service and furthermore their other questionable activities are clear and obvious indicators that they have no place on this forum. Granted other members are promoting them too but my message to everybody is the same.

As you correctly stated, I could have opted to display signatures for many projects but I refused to do so preferring instead to warn and alert others about some of the many scams out there. Kindly reconsider your position on displaying your current signature and participating in their campaign, please consider joining a different campaign instead. Thank you

He is highly irrational, very immature and extremely condescending. He is heavily promoting the scam Yobit Exchange for the sake of a few pennies. There are allegations of him being in a small circle of Trust/merit scammers too.

BEWARE: Yobit has no LLC/LTD or company name, address or ownership details on their website Terms and Conditions so users will probably get scammed then have no legal recourse for getting their stolen funds returned.

We need more people like JollyGood here, who would never put there intrigrity down and always follow the right path towards making this place free from real scammers and not free from people having unpopular opinions (he rather tries to inform it's unpopular by discussion). Keep catching big fishes and saving community from frauds.

I even find your wishes for 2020 highly visionary, which not most of the DTs here have now a day's !

Wishing you a very energetic and wealthy full 2020, keep up the good work ! Cool

Might be the best one of these upranking threads I've seen yet..
Congrats man.. Very deserving..

Sorry about Cryptsy and thank you for your service..
Thank you for your kind words eddie13. A big thank you for all that you have contributed towards in the forum over the years.

Yes that Cryptsy scam set me back in my journey by a couple of years but eventually I returned to crypto when I concluded one devastatingly bad experience should not tarnish everything crypto-related. So many people lost money in the Cryptsy scam. That scammer Paul Vernon (owner of Cryptsy) allegedly made off to China with millions upon millions of stolen funds.

I hope all those that were affected by either Mt Gox, Cryptsy or any other scam have recovered sufficiently enough for them to be part of crypto in some way shape or form.



Congrats now you have only one step ahead. It looks like 1st of Jan 2020 is really amazing day for others as well Smiley
o_e_l_e_o just made it to the Legendary (on the second try) and another real legend is back - nullius.
So it a great start of a very promising year.
Good luck everyone Smiley
Thank you iasenko. I join you in extending congratulations to o_e_l_e_o for making it to Legendary rank.

I have no recollection of the user nullius but I will try to find some posts to try to discover why you hold him in such high esteem.



Happy new year and congrats to you.
You are one of the valuable member of this forum, especially for being scam buster, keep it up!
You have a good start of 2020, damn!
Thank you GreatArkansas, it is very kind of you to send your support. You have contributed so much to the community in various threads and your contributions have been much appreciated.

Please keep up the good work  Wink



Congratulations about reach hero member!
You make me so motivated to reach higher rank, Now I'am newbie I hope I can grow up fastly to reach full member
Thank you Jawhead999.

I have no doubt if you contribute in a manner which is acceptable and appreciated by the majority of the forum community then you will rise in the ranks fast. Wish you success.

WAIT WHAT??
Nullius is back?? Well, fuck, I just checked and he is BACK! That is genuinely good to hear, his posts are absolute delight to read.

Also, JollyGood, congratulations buddy, you did tremendously well! Your journey thus far is definitely worth something, despite its ups and downs. It really sucks what happened with cryptsy but head up dude.

Jolly Good Show old boy.  Grin

I'm currently reading all that I can here, before starting my own bitcoin talk journey. These kind of account histories set a pretty high bar for new members.

Well done, it would seem legendary is going to be merely a formality.
I wanted to make my first post on the 1/1/20, but I could not.

Congratulations fellow hero member Wink


Merit abuse and fake Trust exchanging between small circles of alt-accounts or like-for-like minded bullies/scammers is taking its toll too because several users that clearly pass merit between each and leave positive Trust for each other have gained DT1 and have even sent PMs threatening other users to retract various comments otherwise they will receive negative feedback. I hope 2020 is the year this practice stops or the owners/operators of the forum forcibly take action to put a stop to it.

I totally agree with you on this, and I hope this will change.
Maybe Theymos should make some trust system upgrade for this.
Thank you dkbit98 my fellow Hero member  Grin

In a thread there have seen some proposals made for modifications to the current merit and Trust system put forward, which if accepted by theymos will allow for action to be taken if a certain number of DT1 users vote in unison to counter what would have been posted by the alleged DT1 perpetrator. Maybe something will happen on that front if the community continues to ask for the system to be modified, time will tell I suppose.

I think scam busting on Bitcointalk can be incredibly fun, exciting, frustrating, addicting, educational, satisfying, annoying and tedious.  You do a great job.  You actually inspired me to start using that magic ignore button to minimize my wasting time with certain types. Hope you stick around for a long time.  Happy New Year.

Yes that Cryptsy scam really took its toll on me, it set me back in my journey to learn more about crypto and invest further but in the end I suppose it is those negative experiences that are the making of a person and if you manage to somehow stay positive in the end things can turn around. I think I lost around just over 2.5 years between being scammed by Cryptsy and then taking an interest in crypto again.

I wonder what other stories are out there, we are all from varying backgrounds so am sure there must be plenty of them out there.

And a JollyGood day to you too squire....  Grin

By the way it happens... we try to do something and plan it well but something else diverts our attentions. At least you made your first post today and hopefully you will enjoy your journey here making friends and being part of this amazing forum. Welcome to what will become one of the craziest rides of the your life !

Well if I inspired you to use the IGNORE button on users that have a certain type of disposition, then I am happy to take some credit for it. I even had to add a recommendation in my negative trust that I left for known scammers employing sock-puppets such as "I added him to my IGNORE list and recommend you do the same".

It really does allow for time to be spent doing something constructive in the forum when minimising time spent reading trash posts from sock-puppets, condescending imbeciles and scam promoters. That magic IGNORE button as you call it definitely has uses.

I never set out to scam-bust or participate in scam related threads, it just happened over a period of time and recently I backed off taking time out mostly posting in other threads but I will be back spending more time on helping expose scams with an updated Scam Alert thread which hopefully will help protect users from becoming victims of scams.

Thank you for your kind words TwitchySeal. You are a highly respected member of our community so when you make positive comments it really does give confidence so thank you.

Congratulations @JollyGood on your rank up, Hero member rank well deserved as you are one of the most active scam busters around! Since I also  invested some time in my short scam busting career, you were one of the members I followed, and i picked thing or two from you.

I have no doubts that you will keep up the good work you did till now!

Great news, JollyGood. If there is someone who deserves to be a Hero member on this forum, you are the one, against all the retaliatory and defamatory feedback you received.

I'm hoping that you will reach Legendary status fast. Unfortunately, I don't have any merits to give.

DT members, please do support him. Like many of you, he is making this forum and the bitcoin world a better place for every bitcoiner and crypto user.
