I was looking at the posts and there were like 20 LTC threads going.  Maybe we could have a stickied thread for each of the top 10 coins like they do for the miners

NMC
IXC
I0C
GG
TBX
FBX
SC
LTC
LQC

I think it should be based on their lifespan.  Thus no coin gets advantage based on number of posts.

I agree. One thread to rule them all.

The forum was generally for alt-chains, now it is mostly about Litecoin.

I think this idea is long overdue.This forum needs a cleanup by organising each alt-currency into their own sub forums or failing that a mega thread like you suggest.I want to find relevant info in less than 5 seconds using search. E.g I look for info about LTC,it takes me a long time to wade through all the other non-LTC threads in the sub forum of alt-currencies before I get what I want to see which can be frustrating at times.

perhaps keep this section for more general alt-crypto conversation, with sub-sections for each type of established coin?

It has enough network backing to justify this

Just in case you guys aren't aware, Alt Currency Sub-Forum was created simply to function as a trash can to keep this crap out of Bitcoin Discussion.

Maged correct me if I am wrong.

The main topic of the Alt Cur is what ever coin is "hot". I have seen Solidcoin as well Geist and Tenebrix dominate this forum before.

~BCX~
Of course we're aware of it. Painfully.

In fact, that is the very reason we suggest to give each of the alt-crypto's their own sub-forum, because it is out of control now.

Doing so will have no impact at all on the goal to "keep this crap out of Bitcoin Discussion", and since the alt-crypto's are obviously a popular part of the whole discussion, treating them (and those of us who participate on their topics and experiments) like trash, does the community a disservice.

There are currently only 2 active alt-currencies that are under discussion. LTC and SC. There is currently an entire subforum dedicated to these 2 subjects. If you restrict them each to a single thread, you will have a subforum with 2 active threads in it.

Bitcoin is backed by the full faith and credit of YouTube comments.

Namecoin and Devcoin aren't active?

Ok, well, that still isn't reason not to do it. Looking through this sub-forum, there are many threads for different alt chains, and if they were all grouped in their own subforums from the beginning, they wouldn't all be jumbled together now.

More about future usage, and subforums aren't that much work to set up, as far as cost/benefit goes.

This is not supposed to be the primary forum for discussing any other cryptocurrency. For any discussion about a specific type of currency, please use their forum. If they don't have one, make one. As you can see, Bitcointalk is not a sub-forum on some Gold forum, for example.

This is also the same reason why you don't see, say, a MtGox subforum here, even though they certainly have enough threads to qualify for a one. (although, even then, MtGox could still get a subforum here, since they kinda own this forum... (does that make me a Tibanne Co. employee?))

It may not have been intended that way, but your forum has become a victim of its own success, and has ended up being the primary central point for discussing crypto-currencies of all kinds, not just bitcoin.

bitcointalk.org links are what I see most of the time in other places about bitcoin, namecoin, devcoin, litecoin, etc etc, in far far greater numbers than any other discussion links combined.

Sorry guys, but that's just the way it worked out. If you don't want other crypto-currency discussion on your forum, then I would suggest you ban all other discussion of other alt-chains that are not directly involving bitcoin.

I think having Bitcointalk as a general Crypto currency forum is exactly how such a forum would start. Bitcoin is after all the original crypto currency, and the rest are heavily based on its code. It's the primary currency, paving the way for the rest of them.

Except SC, that one can burn in hell  Tongue
