Added another rule with example:

Quote
30. Similar marketplace items must be listed together.[2][e]

Quote
30. This includes (but is not limited to) domains, software keys and membership invitations. What's considered similar is up to the moderator handling the situation.

Is making consecutive posts acceptable?
There was a discussion on this here, but I would like this to be clarified.

An example is this thread
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1066885.1780

The last 100+ posts have been made by the same user.
Multiple posts in a single day....

That's fucking ridiculous. He has over 250 posts all in a row talking to no one but himself and he's already nearly made ten posts today alone. It's clear nobody is interested in his tips and is likely only doing it for signature payment but there's no reason why the daily updates can't all be in one post. I've notified Marco but at the very least I reckon it's spam and violates the one bump per 24 hour rule but not sure how that should be handled as there's a major clean up needed. I've asked the admins for clarification on double/multi-posting but in my opinion it's blatant spam and completely unnecessary (and same goes for others double/triple/quadruple posting when there's no apparent need for it).

Did we get clarifications from the admin on multi-posting?
That thread continues to grow (25 posts from him yesterday)...

Since bans have been issued for multiple posting, shouldn't this be explicitly added to the list?
We can always direct further questions to the list, if they arise.

I thought there was already a simplified version of it here... guess not.
so yeah, adding that would be a good idea. and the required rank too. people asks that frequently enough to make it a FAQTongue

Added rule with source (and you to the credits of course), thanks for the tip:

Quote
31. User avatars must not contain NSFL or NSFW content, infringe on copyright or attempt to impersonate a user.[10]

I think a rule in regards to Thread hijacking should also be added as well since the list is getting updated. IIRC there was a statement by theymos but couldn't find it to post as reference. I've reported few of users (using my main account) that hijacked other threads for their own purpose and reports were handled by some moderators so pretty much sure it's against the rules.

I think these cover it:

2. No off-topic posts.
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]

Thanks! Smiley

So when rules change this thread gets an update. That's what I wanted to check. It's good to know that i will not miss new rules now. Cheesy

Edit: Though when I'm already here... when taking all these rules into account, then there is no rule against posting too much on the forum at all when you wear a signature of some kind, right? You can see I nicely format posts to multiple persons now so that it even gets seeable that it is a post directed to more than one persons. Though I often don't have time to post so I take the time to check out developments on the forum each other day.

Guess I become paranoid, fearing a hidden rule everywhere. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Please ALWAYS contact me through bitcointalk pm before sending someone coins.

Well, I'm willing to bet that not every rule is on this list, as I'm sure there are some unwritten ones that haven't been included just yet.

Posting a lot (on it's own) is not against forum rules, as long as you keep the other rules in mind. So, if you make a lot of shitty posts, you'll be breaking forum rules, but not because you aren't allowed to post a lot.

Cheesy Thanks! And I never do shitty posts... as far as Iam aware. Surely I could get a quick buck by doing so but not doing it let me be a quality poster that campaign managers like and try to keep. Cheesy I always like it more being surrounded by happy people. Tongue

Hello Team Bitcointalk,

Today twice our ANN thread has been deleted (or your site has a technical bug).

just push the delete button does not help, Now if you ever tell us why you push the delete button, we can take this into account in the 3rd attempt.

Are we breaking the rules?, this is not our intention.

But if we do not notice we can change nothing...

Can you advice us why?

Gr.,
Jack

Perhaps somebody might explain what is wrong with this post that it requires deletion from the Wall Observer Thread. Do you have fructose intolerance?

Quote from: Bitcoin Forum
A reply of yours, quoted below, was deleted by a Bitcoin Forum moderator. Posts are most frequently deleted because they are off-topic, though they can also be deleted for other reasons. In the future, please avoid posting things that need to be deleted.

Would you like me to run a program to compile a list of the hundreds of contributions containing the terms ETH, Ether or Ethereum from that thread for you? I can help you sterilize your forum.

You don't seem to understand how this process works. Obviously you are allowed to mention it to a certain degree as long as you mostly stay on topic. However, in your case your post has nothing to do with either Bitcoin or the topic (I assume). Keep in mind that moderators can't keep track of every post as well.

Should bumps for 3/4/5 year old threads be reported? I've been seeing some posts being made on old threads like these which don't make any sense whatsoever... But there isn't really a rule for that as far as I could see.
