Advertising spam is not allowed, this includes mining pools, gambling services, exchanges, shops, etc. Mining pool ops should make a thread within the Mining section of Alt Currencies. Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam. Exchanges, shops, gambling sites, etc, should make a thread in the Marketplace section of Alt Currencies.



Edit by mprep:

You know what, time for a slight policy change:

After consulting and discussing with BadBear, I've decided that it's time to let people discuss a bit more freely about services. Although BadBear's earlier posts hinted that service posts are a "no go" on most cases, after contacting him a couple of days ago, I believe he has changed his thinking, possibly due to the community's opinion and suggestions (told you it would help Grin).

As per this shift, the following type of posts are now allowed in coin threads:

  • Posts about block explorers. ("Here is a new block explorer for this coin" type posts)
  • If a service comes up in a disussion and directly related to the coin, it's allowed
  • "We're up" messages for pools (if it's only once per thread)
  • "This exchange added coin" type posts for exchanges (again, if it's only once per thread)

However, said rules only apply to those posts that ARE NOT large, distracting with images, or markup codes (lots of bold and colors) and other traits of an advertisement. If a post is considered an advertisement will be determined on case by case basis.

Post your suggestions and opinions regarding this rule and how it should be improved and it might get implemented.

Advertising mining pools is no longer allowed, including, but not limited to, altcoin announcement threads.  Mining pool ops should make one thread within the Mining section of Alt Currencies. Do not make a separate thread for each coin. Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam.



I Kind of agree,   Pools will be listed in the OP's and pool owners and devs can arrange that off the boards.  Cutting down the pool advertisements in some threads would really help reduce the clutter

 Just my 2 cents.

Next FUD will be banned, and every thread will have one page.

That would be kinda nice, actually.

Pool spam is bad for a few days at launch, but FUD spam is forever. See DRK thread for a good example.

Seriously, BCT becomes lame lately.

First giveaways, now they forbid to pool OPs to advertise their service in the topics, while 12 year olds make 100 accounts to spread FUD and insult people.

How the Hell do you intend for people to find pools to mine the coins with, if not in the OP I quote you .. maybe you mistyped what you actually mean "Advertising mining pools is no longer allowed, including, but not limited to, alt coin announcement threads." So a new coin cannot have links to the pools for their coin is what that says ... I wonder if it's just not clearly written because you go on to contradict your self here with "Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam.

So can we have some clarification to this.... otherwise I think it's time to community found a new forum to work from ... ....  .... damn nazi's

Yes, listing available pools in the OP is fine.

I don't understand.

1. If coin has dedicated "mining" thread is it allowed to post there?
2. Is it allowed to post in "local branches" of the forums like Russian, French, etc?

Yes. This is the most threatening issue facing the alt coin section now. The rampage of the mining pools posts. Sigh.

I disagree with this.  Next thing you know I'll get banned for posting something like "Hey, since all the other pools are busted why don't you try my pool at http://blabla.minemyshit.com"  Would that be considered "advertising?"

If someone asks a question like "Hey which pools are working right now" and I respond with "My pool at http://blabla.minemyshit.com is working great, come on over" will I get in trouble for that?  Should we expect everyone interested in mining to try every pool listed in the OP, which is not always current and definitely does not show status (working or not, forked or not), to find a working pool?

Being able to post pool advertisements in the coin's thread is important during launch.  Pools are coming online far faster than the devs/announcer can keep the OP updated.  Don't make us pool operators PM with the devs to get listed in the OP, and don't force all the forum users to constantly have to switch back to page 1 to see new pools that have come online.

Perhaps a better solution would be to limit the SIZE of pool advertisements, that's what's so damn annoying.  No more 500x500 graphic logos and 10 lines of huge text.  I would have no problem limiting my pool announcements to something that could fit in maybe 5 lines or so, if such guidelines were published.

at the end of the day , all pool are only middle men and only care about the profit they make - so they should either Pay each post ( advertisement )  or be posted in the OP (updated regularly)

this will also stop Shit scamining pool from posting crap that haven't been verified working and paying out.

Less and less viewer are coming onto bitcointalk.org. every main coin has 300 pages with at least 50 of them are post and Quotes of Pool info and Referrals


Dear OP ,
Can we also please Remove Sig with Referral links . they should be force to pay a donation if they are making a profit from posting here

Added the rule to Unofficial list of (official) Bitcointalk.org rules, guidelines.

Do not make a separate thread for each coin. Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam.

The submission of pools to be added to OP can be done via PM.

I don't understand.

1. If coin has dedicated "mining" thread is it allowed to post there?
2. Is it allowed to post in "local branches" of the forums like Russian, French, etc?

1. Yes
2. Yes, if they have an alt coin section in that Local board, they post in a dedicated thread for their pool and that thread is in the appropriate language.

this is bullshit rule that fucks over those of us who want to find pool fast and grab some of the first low difficulty coins, i don't want to be checking the mining subforum or waiting for dev to get pm and add to op, this only wastes time and allows ppl with their own mining hardware and insiders to get more of the easy coins

its only spam when pool owner post their link in the same thread multiple times, don't see the problem allowing them to post once

Be radical, have principles, be absolute, be that which the bourgeoisie calls an extremist: give yourself without counting or calculating, don't accept what they call ‘the reality of life' and act in such a way that you won't be accepted by that kind of ‘life', never abandon the principle of struggle.

We've had some serious trouble with pool spammers (those adding any coin and posting (nearly) an identical message to all altcoin announcements). They just clutter up a discussion and can be avoided simply by making people add pools through PM. If you want to mine a coin early, mine it solo. If you can't, don't worry - probaly nobody will be until the coin author adds the info.

Ban the spammers, don't ban the practice entirely.  Limit pool advertisement size to 5 lines of text and one 80x80px image.

So if a pool owner posts his pool in a thread... he will get banned??  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

How about limiting that post too 1 in each announcement thread?


Im really sorry I have too say this... But this is NOT the priority you should be looking at right now with all those scamcoins around these days..

People lose money everyday over scams...

But instead of helping the community, by setting stricter rules for coin announcements on here... you worry about poolowners who advertise their pools...

I really cant understand this... Sorry Undecided

I think you should change the subject of this thread to 'Pool spamming is no longer allowed'. It's very annoying when pools keep posting their advert sometimes several time on a single page which can go on for many pages.

Have pools listed in the OP and let them post once when they are up and running.

This goes for pools not listed in the OP to be allowed to post once when they are up and mining.

This gives miners a chance to mine on the first pool that's working. This has been my tactic for the last few months, I've been waiting for the first pool to announce its working then register there and start mining. Problem with that is sometimes the first pool is overwhelmed with new registrations and struggles to cope that's the risk you take.

Too many times I lost out on the golden time of early mining because I registered with one of the 'bigger' pools and they didn't launch quickly enough and I missed out.

That would be a bit too drastic - this forum does proud itself on freedom of speech. Limiting which coins can be accepted, would leave a lot of room for moderator abuse.

this is bullshit rule that fucks over those of us who want to find pool fast and grab some of the first low difficulty coins, i don't want to be checking the mining subforum or waiting for dev to get pm and add to op, this only wastes time and allows ppl with their own mining hardware and insiders to get more of the easy coins

This is nazi moderator bullshit.  
You could try suggesting several pools without showing which one is yours. For example:

Quote
Quote
Which pool is up and running for Coin?
You could try these pools:

pool1.com
pool2.com
mypool.com

That wouldn't be considered advertising, wouldn't it (BadBear, can you confirm?)?

Some pools just post identical messages to each coin to promote their pool. That would be considered a duplicate which add little to nothing to the discussion. Such adding of pools can be done easily by PM. If you want to find the best pool for coin X, just search the Mining (Altcoins) board. Regarding scam coins, scams (real or not, not for me to judge) are not moderated to prevent moderator abuse.

You gotta be kidding, right?

What's next?

Next FUD will be banned, and every thread will have one page.

That would be kinda nice, actually.
Seriously, BCT becomes lame lately.

First giveaways, now they forbid to pool OPs to advertise their service in the topics, while 12 year olds make 100 accounts to spread FUD and insult people.


I neither agree or disagree re pools bc I don't mine any more...
But OP has a point. BCT allows has ignored all calls for moderation of altcoin sub-forums and this is the first thing to bring into action? I'd say the pressing issue is multiple accounts and serial scammers more so than the pools clogging up threads with "spam".
Whatever happened to the rule where you couldn't post with a new account until a certain threshold of time and/or newbie introduction?

pool owners have their pool in their sig. If they just do a normal post like 'setting up a pool, will see what this coin turns out to' in the topic, It's probably not considered as spam. Problem solved.

Multiple accounts are allowed since a "one account" policy is nearly impossible to effectively enforce with TOR, proxies and VPNs circling about, (possible) scams are not moderated forum wide - freedom comes at a price. Newbie jail was abolished. This was changed by bringing in more moderators who moderate Newbie posts site wide (that would be me and hilariousandco) and several older mods were given the ability to moderate Newbie posts as well.

Presumably then any other coin based services need to follow the same rules.

This means:

Exchanges
Gambling Sites
Other Services

All of which profit from the "free service" provided. Many of which also "spam" threads.

PM Coin OP for post in OP thread. Create on post in appropriate sub-forum (marketplace for exchanges maybe?)

Also, posts by "shills" advertising a pool (ie "really  hope <XYZ>pool was here") should be classed as spam, and attempts to circumvent the rules also.

If u want to stop clutter, stop allowing creation of new coin, ipo's...This creates more spam than anything.

That would be a bit too drastic - this forum does proud itself on freedom of speech. Limiting which coins can be accepted, would leave a lot of room for moderator abuse.

Well what of the requirements that used to be in action where newbie accounts were restricted.
I would wholeheartedly endorse doing something because this isn't a community and it's all altcoins are being traded against bitcoin.
I'd love to be able to read altcoin announcements without newbie accounts spamming support. I'd love to be able to put reputation against coin projects.
The problem here is multiple accounts and not so much pool operators.
All of the hubris and buzz surrounding ANNs is bought up like with USBcoin, which leads to sore losers threatening Bittrex with FBI investigations. Can you imagine the outcome of looking into logs of BCT and finding the IPs showing mass collusion by serial scammers with nothing whatsoever on place to stop the schemes?
I'm not asking for censorship. I'm asking for checks and balances stopping multiple accounts. It's like a gypsy marketplace here and all from clogged up posts by alias newbie accounts.
I understand your reasoning with pools mprep, but
newbie accounts are the issue

Advertising mining pools is no longer allowed, including, but not limited to, altcoin announcement threads.  Mining pool ops should make one thread within the Mining section of Alt Currencies. Do not make a separate thread for each coin. Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam.




How the Hell do you intend for people to find pools to mine the coins with, if not in the OP I quote you .. maybe you mistyped what you actually mean "Advertising mining pools is no longer allowed, including, but not limited to, alt coin announcement threads." So a new coin cannot have links to the pools for their coin is what that says ... I wonder if it's just not clearly written because you go on to contradict your self here with "Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam. "

So can we have some clarification to this.... otherwise I think it's time to community found a new forum to work from ... ....  .... damn nazi's

Yes, listing available pools in the OP is fine.

That's cool as long as it's allowed to be listed in the OP.  Some pools over advertise and it just adds way too many pages to a thread.

Very true, it is difficult to police, and I wouldn't even know what to recommend as a solution because any mod would go nuts with the altcoins section of BCT.
No matter the reason, it's a great sign some of the lawlessness is being swept up. As I said I'm on the fence with pool advertising as I don't mine. But it's as good a place as any to start cleaning up so I (we?) appreciate the gesture.

Getting added to the OP by requesting the devs via PM is a joke.  It happens maybe 50% of the time, and never quickly.

Not our problem. If a dev wants his coin to succeed he will do everything possible to make sure he does have the pool list included. If he can't be bothered to do that then why would anyone want to bother with it?



So if a pool owner posts his pool in a thread... he will get banned??  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

How about limiting that post too 1 in each announcement thread?


Im really sorry I have too say this... But this is NOT the priority you should be looking at right now with all those scamcoins around these days..

People lose money everyday over scams...

But instead of helping the community, by setting stricter rules for coin announcements on here... you worry about poolowners who advertise their pools...

I really cant understand this... Sorry Undecided

Remove scamcoins? Ok.  *deletes alt currencies*  Grin



What sanctions? Imagine, I can create an account and spam ads of competitors.

We can press one button and ban an account, and remove all it's posts automatically. I don't think it's going to be a problem.


That's part of what prompted this, now it's fair for everyone, instead of some arbitrary rules that nobody is going to remember. Besides, this isn't some special rule just for alt currencies, when is the last time you saw a bitcoin mining pool advertising outside of Mining>Pools? Alt currencies has always received less moderation than the rest of the forum, and probably always will, but the pool spam is crazy and we're tired of dealing with the spam generated.

Mod: Can we announce when the pool is up and running with the source?, this allows miners to know which pool to choose from at launch.
Also, can we answer miner's questions that usually come up in the thread directed to each of us?

BadBear, you should clarify this a bit more. Pool advertising is permited entirely exept only a single post and that't the end? Of pool opperators can still advertise through signatures for example?

Yeah, that sounds fair.  Dev's might not have time to update the OP or they maybe offline at the moment.  Mod, how about only 1 pool advertising per thread?

How about we just make another subforum for altcoin services? Then people can post a thread to their pool and just update it whenever they add a new coin.

sounds good...

As a pool op I still think this is bullshit for the reasons I mentioned in previous posts.

Sending a PM to the dev/announcer is a crap shoot.  Maybe he'll add it to the OP, maybe he won't.  The only thing guaranteed is that he won't do it fast.  This gives the devs control over what pools are "blessed" enough to be advertised, and us operators who put in the effort to setup a pool might get screwed by not being listed in the OP.  I see a thread where everyone is complaining that all the pools are down, so I bust balls and get one setup - and have to wait on the dev to announce it in the OP?  Maybe never even announce it at all?  Bullshit.

This also opens the door for shady launches where one pool gets 100% of the hashrate, this will of course end up being the pool of the dev's choosing, since being the first one to post "We are up and running" in the thread will no longer be allowed.  So, if I stay up until silly o'clock in the morning to make the launch and be first pool available it might just be for nothing, if the dev decides not to pay attention to his PM's, or decides he likes a different pool better and announces them first.  Bullshit.

During launch, shit happens fast - pool ops need to be able to post status updates and advertise that their pool is working.  Devs already have enough to do and should not have to babysit PM's and continue updating the OP for pool updates, and miners shouldn't have to keep checking back on page 1 to get those updates either.

Banning *ALL* advertisements because of a few spammers is cutting off your nose to spite your face.  Don't ban the entire practice of advertising pools - do your job: moderate, and ban those abusing the forum.  If it's a problem (and I agree it is) then try something else, for example:

- Ban the users blatantly and constantly spamming their pools (they are easy to find)
- Limit pool advertisements to 5 lines of 12pt text or less and one 80x80 px image
- Require pool operators to pay a modest annual fee ($20 or so?) allowing them to advertise
- Any combination of the above

Yes - you heard me - I am willing to pay for the right to advertise.  I'm sure others are as well.

How about we just make another subforum for altcoin services? Then people can post a thread to their pool and just update it whenever they add a new coin.

We already have Mining (Altcoins) board. Pool owners should do their announcements there.

Yes - you heard me - I am willing to pay for the right to advertise.  I'm sure others are as well.

If you want more exposure you can bid on forums ad space.

There are some older coins whose original dev has vanished but the coin is still going strong. The people who have taken up the development do not have access to the OP many times and so new pool information cannot be added except in later posts. I know they should probably have started a new thread when the dev abandoned the coin, but there are many older, good coins out there where all of the current pool information is in later posts, just for this reason.

Sending a PM to the dev/announcer is a crap shoot.  Maybe he'll add it to the OP, maybe he won't.  The only thing guaranteed is that he won't do it fast.  This gives the devs control over what pools are "blessed" enough to be advertised, and us operators who put in the effort to setup a pool might get screwed by not being listed in the OP.  I see a thread where everyone is complaining that all the pools are down, so I bust balls and get one setup - and have to wait on the dev to announce it in the OP?  Maybe never even announce it at all?  Bullshit.

This also opens the door for shady launches where one pool gets 100% of the hashrate, this will of course end up being the pool of the dev's choosing, since being the first one to post "We are up and running" in the thread will no longer be allowed.  So, if I stay up until silly o'clock in the morning to make the launch and be first pool available it might just be for nothing, if the dev decides not to pay attention to his PM's, or decides he likes a different pool better and announces them first.  Bullshit.


Great argument, in parts.

This give scammy devs additional leverage. Pools will have to toe the line or risk being excluded from the OP.
Scam devs are not interested in creating a well-spread hashrate - even a single pool would do for them.
Especially one that doesn't highlight suspicious codes. The past week alone, I've seen three pools giving alerts on weird codes, like this one.
A layer of protection against scam coins is now removed.

I am not a pool OP and have no intentions to become one.  I still think this rule is mostly unjustified because if I wanted to mine a coin, I usually look at the advertisements on the thread.  I rarely look at the OP because the dev usually never updates the post.  I think pools should be allowed one post in the thread that advertises their pool, but then the rest of the rules can be followed.

The argument still stands. This grants greater powers to scam devs.
Pool owners would be more concerned about protecting their rice bowl rather than miners.
After the Elite wallet switcheroo last week and your resulting losses, I'm surprised you'd be in favor of this.

It's not nearly as convenient.  I RARELY go to the mining section, and I don't look at people signatures Tongue.  It would just be better if I could see one post of the pool.

This is NOT a solution.  When a coin launches miners want to know what pools are available for THAT SPECIFIC COIN.  Why should someone have to go to the mining section and look through each post to see if they can find a pool that happens to be set up for a coin they are interested in mining?  The information they are looking for is not about the pool, it is about the COIN.  Therefore, the information should be posted in the COIN thread.  I am not a pool operator, but I am really frustrated by this new rule.

>>Why should someone have to go to the mining section and look through each post to see if they can find a pool that happens to be set up for a coin they are interested in mining?

 I guess the coin creator can create an announcement tread for their coin and start another Coin thread in the Mining Section for their pools. Then you would just look for the coin you want to mine and all of the pool would be listed in that thread.

I'm also in favor for one pool post in the thread when they come online the first day of mining. Not one post a week later after the coin has been being mined.

Advertising mining pools is no longer allowed, including, but not limited to, altcoin announcement threads.  Mining pool ops should make one thread within the Mining section of Alt Currencies. Do not make a separate thread for each coin. Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam.

I am a pool op, and I actually support this.

Listen, I've seen many pool ops post large image advertisements of their pool. This advertisement would then get quoted countless times. That definitely spam's up a thread.

There are other ways to advertise a new pool, like SuprNova just posted, the main page of the pool op's website, and a twitter feed.

However, I do think mod's should also do something about the FUD spreaders, don't just come down on the pool ops.

Just because a pool is advertised in someone's sig doesn't mean they support a particular coin.

In my case, should I list all 50 coins I support in my sig?  That would get obnoxious fast.

Do not make a separate thread for each coin. Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam.



Is it okay for a coin developer to create a thread in the Mining section called "How to mine MySpecialCoin" or whatever, and link to it in the Coin's Announcement thread as a place for pool operators to post if they add support for the coin?  It consolidates posts into two places then for the coin: (1) Announcement post for all the discussion and needed info and FUD and whatever else someone wants to post, and (2) Mining post where pools can post, as can folks working on new mining software or hardware that impacts that coin.

Seems like an okay solution.  My worry with relying on the Dev/Dev Team is that a decentralized system all of a sudden becomes much more centralized.

As a pool op I still think this is bullshit for the reasons I mentioned in previous posts.

Sending a PM to the dev/announcer is a crap shoot.  Maybe he'll add it to the OP, maybe he won't.  The only thing guaranteed is that he won't do it fast.  This gives the devs control over what pools are "blessed" enough to be advertised, and us operators who put in the effort to setup a pool might get screwed by not being listed in the OP.  I see a thread where everyone is complaining that all the pools are down, so I bust balls and get one setup - and have to wait on the dev to announce it in the OP?  Maybe never even announce it at all?  Bullshit.

This also opens the door for shady launches where one pool gets 100% of the hashrate, this will of course end up being the pool of the dev's choosing, since being the first one to post "We are up and running" in the thread will no longer be allowed.  So, if I stay up until silly o'clock in the morning to make the launch and be first pool available it might just be for nothing, if the dev decides not to pay attention to his PM's, or decides he likes a different pool better and announces them first.  Bullshit.

During launch, shit happens fast - pool ops need to be able to post status updates and advertise that their pool is working.  Devs already have enough to do and should not have to babysit PM's and continue updating the OP for pool updates, and miners shouldn't have to keep checking back on page 1 to get those updates either.

Banning *ALL* advertisements because of a few spammers is cutting off your nose to spite your face.  Don't ban the entire practice of advertising pools - do your job: moderate, and ban those abusing the forum.  If it's a problem (and I agree it is) then try something else, for example:

- Ban the users blatantly and constantly spamming their pools (they are easy to find)
- Limit pool advertisements to 5 lines of 12pt text or less and one 80x80 px image
- Require pool operators to pay a modest annual fee ($20 or so?) allowing them to advertise
- Any combination of the above

Yes - you heard me - I am willing to pay for the right to advertise.  I'm sure others are as well.




+1 I agree with you 100%. This is our job, and sending PMs to coin devs is useless most of the times.

it makes sense to me (my 2 cents)

guys their forum database here must be getting huge Sad
i said long ago these post spammers are going to force this forum to clamp down sooner or later with more and more rules..
it's commons sense really

action causes bloat then it has to be stemmed or dealt with in some way.. sooner or later
and we can bitch about HOW they have to stem the tide but regardless they have to do something.

funny you say they should so something about FUD'ers and NOT the scammers LOLOLOL
that is a coin cloners desperate little attempt to cry for protection for your shit coin cloning here i think.

guys don't forget half these coin cloners run pools too..
how else do you think they collect those bounties LOL

and if anyone thinks i just said that because i am trying to cover my own behavior i am not..
i rarely ever post on coins in the ANN section and i actually try and leave them alone ..no matter how scammy they are.
simply because my posts will not do anything but bloat the forum.. and it won't do any good
AND i don't want to bump their crap coin topics for them hahha

So if a pool owner posts his pool in a thread... he will get banned??  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

How about limiting that post too 1 in each announcement thread?


Im really sorry I have too say this... But this is NOT the priority you should be looking at right now with all those scamcoins around these days..

People lose money everyday over scams...

But instead of helping the community, by setting stricter rules for coin announcements on here... you worry about poolowners who advertise their pools...

I really cant understand this... Sorry Undecided

+1 Pool ops need to be allowed to post at least ONCE on a thread, if it's more than one post then treat it as Spam and punish it, but doing this you're only affecting our jobs. Please reconsider this decision.

Agree 1000%!!!  Pool operators need to be able to post once in a thread.  Even if it's just stating that their pool is up and running.

Seeing flound1129 coming to post here stating that he finds this new rule ridiculous I'm starting to think that it might be the most controversial rule addition bitcointalk ever had. I'm not sure if this was a univeral decision, but I can't see a way that all members of the staff would agree to this. In fact, I personally had never seen a single person complaining about updates posted by pools. They were a really small chunk of what is beeing marked as spam. And in fact, pools are a public service. Operators rely on a (usually never more than 2%) fee to maintain them. Many of them are putting out incredible efforts and deliver amazing results for the miners. It's going to be the first time I'm coming out as a rule, but I agree with flound1129. This decision not only is ridiculous, but bans the kind of posts that were some of the most usefull among the spam. Who is going to get harmed by a single update if it's in the right section? Even if it's advertising, updates about pools adding coins are really useful if you're a miner. I'm sure most of us will know what I'm talking about. If you've ever mined you know why you need to be there as early as possible. Throw your hash to a pool before the big guns arrive. etc. etc.

This new rule is bad because not only it's going to make a mine's life harder, but it's also going to favor the older and bigger pools. This way making distributed mining for smaller coins harder. Oh and please, tell me how much spam is this rule saving us from? I understand this rule sounds somewhat reasonable, but some of those updates were actually usefull! I'm saying that there's no reason for this rule to exist, I know you'll disagree. But beeing so strict about this is not giving more to this community rather than what it takes away from it.

I think banning pools from advertising in threads is too harsh. There should be rules about how they are presented and how often they are posted maybe, but an outright ban? It's not the right solution.

Advertising mining pools is no longer allowed, including, but not limited to, altcoin announcement threads.  Mining pool ops should make one thread within the Mining section of Alt Currencies. Do not make a separate thread for each coin. Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam.

I'm a bit biased, being a pool owner, but I think *excessive* advertising is the issue. Many pools post huge ads and spam them multiple times a page, which is bad. I usually post a single, concise message in a thread that we've added a coin to our pool, which I wouldn't classify quite the same way and would expect many people find useful.

If the rule is going to remain as-is, it should also apply to advertising by ALL service providers in threads then, like exchanges, mining rental sites, cloud mining sites, ASIC hardware companies, etc. There's a lot of spam from those sources.

Seeing flound1129 coming to post here stating that he finds this new rule ridiculous I'm starting to think that it might be the most controversial rule addition bitcointalk ever had. I'm not sure if this was a univeral decision, but I can't see a way that all members of the staff would agree to this. In fact, I personally had never seen a single person complaining about updates posted by pools. They were a really small chunk of what is beeing marked as spam. And in fact, pools are a public service. Operators rely on a (usually never more than 2%) fee to maintain them. Many of them are putting out incredible efforts and deliver amazing results for the miners. It's going to be the first time I'm coming out as a rule, but I agree with flound1129. This decision not only is ridiculous, but bans the kind of posts that were some of the most usefull among the spam. Who is going to get harmed by a single update if it's in the right section? Even if it's advertising, updates about pools adding coins are really useful if you're a miner. I'm sure most of us will know what I'm talking about. If you've ever mined you know why you need to be there as early as possible. Throw your hash to a pool before the big guns arrive. etc. etc.

This new rule is bad because not only it's going to make a mine's life harder, but it's also going to favor the older and bigger pools. This way making distributed mining for smaller coins harder. Oh and please, tell me how much spam is this rule saving us from? I understand this rule sounds somewhat reasonable, but some of those updates were actually usefull! I'm saying that there's no reason for this rule to exist, I know you'll disagree. But beeing so strict about this is not giving more to this community rather than what it takes away from it.
You do realize that any advertise that they do, they are doing it for free here? You can't really complain if there are some restrictions since it is still free.
Some forums do no allow any advertising whatsoever.

You do realize that pools not only provide a service for low fees for all the miners but that this is also our main job and some of us have families and all?
I understand and it makes complete sense to stop the SPAM on forums, however, pool should be allowed to announce our pools at least once, this allows miners to know which pools are available and they can decide to go to. Devs never add a pool on time, they usually take so long (and most miners don't even look at the OP in full) that pools in general will get a huge loss because of this new rule.
It's not advertising nor spam when a pool announces on a thread, at least not on the first post, if anything should be forbidden is several posts with large fonts and graphics, but not a simple single announcement on a thread.
This is something that needs to be given proper thought and planning, pools are a very important part of crypto and should not be attacked like this.

Not a bad idea if you ask me. Some of these pools jump on any and every coin - even the obvious scams. This can be somewhat misleading to people who are looking for a viable coin to mine and may not have enough knowledge to determine that for themselves; 10 pool listings in a couple of pages of posts might appear to be a 'good' coin, but that may not be the case. This is probably a factor that contributes to pump and dumps. And of course all that does is foster the creation of more shit/scam coins - vicious cycle.

i see how this sucks for Pool op's
but i have complained about this problem exactly on topics before..
it gets REALLY bad sometimes just trying to find info on a coin when a pile of pool op's are competing with spam posts.

but i do see a little of it as being useful.. tough call i guess.

it should be pointed out that Pool op's can have an ANN page in the mining section.
so they are not banned entirely (if i got what was said properly by Bear ?)

i already had a bunch bookmarked like ipominer's or miningpoolhub's pool pages.
and i have countless times told guys to go talk on those topics too because people hijack coin topics for pool support.

it's their forum they can do what they want..
and the earlier suggestions have already been addressed all over the forum countless times.
such as Make a rule noobs can't post.. it's been discussed a lot !
like here.. Petition to introduce minimum activity count for ANN thread starters

and about FUD.. i can speculate a bit on the staff's position on this i think.
I don't think they mind it if it's apart of a discussion or debate of sorts.
behavior that is clearly out of line will earn you a ban though !

you guys may not ever see it but people get banned ALL the time !
I don't have a problem with so called FUD'ing ..i like seeing criticism.
raising doubt and fear etc is sort of reasonable considering there is a 1,000 clone coins..
and there has been countless confirmed scams and malware posted either on the initial wallet or on updates way later..
So if you consider the context of all this stuff, yeah i think FUD is fine and actually a healthy part of it all.

A guy was so called FUD'ing jackpot (which i support) for example and everyone was getting all mad..
i can see everyone name calling and wanting a ban or what ever.
and i said i agree with the guy and i see what he is saying and i explained rationally why i chose to get involved with the coin..
i tried to talk it out with the guy basically.. he raised valid criticism and i can't deny it.. although everyone else did out of defensive fanboyism lol
he left right after i talked to him by the way..
I don't see any harm in FUD.

There is worse types of other behavior here i think than FUD'ers.
And the king of them all is shell / dummy accounts created for pretending to be many people liking a new coin etc.
One guy here i seen before admitted to making 60 accounts to advertise his clone coin(s).
And these guys use these account to fight on the forum too !
Knowing if they get banned for bad behavior they can jump to 59 other accounts.. at least i think so, i don't know if this place IP bans people.

I got banned 2x before..
i think once for 5 days and once for 10 days i think. i was given an auto msg at next login that said "Trolling" or "Spamming"
I say that to warn people.. they will ban you and often it's a bit delayed.
And if the FUD 'is' out of control there may be a good reason.. if there 'is' no good reason then i bet they 'will' ban the guy for trolling.
Just trying to say they are watching.. and there is rules.. and people will be banned LOL

rather than banning FUD'ers i'd like to see people banned for Fanboyism and Cheer-leading Scam Coins !
Spamming this forum for attention is big business and is Tool no.1 to the coin cloners besides GitHub of course lol

FUD first & ask questions later™

I see good and bad points from this.

The good mainly being that it might help to get rid of a lot of the "fly by night" pools that don't really offer much and/or are scams. Plus it stops some pools from over spamming threads.

The bad..

It's really going to centralize the altcoin sector much more than it already is. Smaller pools, like ourselves, struggle to get many workers as it is, and I'm guessing it's going to be much, much less from this point forwards. We HAVE to keep reminding users in threads that our pool is there, and the features we offer, or we simply don't get noticed. For example, our pool charges 0.75% for fees, which is one of the lowest around.. but in most OPs you won't see that detail - only in our ad where we list our main advantages.

What I can see happening is basically the hashrate on the few big pools, Dedicated, Suprnova, Suchpool etc, is going to increase and all the other pools are going to get fewer and fewer workers.

Why not make it so each pool can post once in each thread with their ad.. any more than once and it's spam. I don't see the problem with allowing one "ad" each. It's still not ideal for smaller pools like us but it's a bit of a compromise at least.

I am a pool op, and I actually support this.

Listen, I've seen many pool ops post large image advertisements of their pool. This advertisement would then get quoted countless times. That definitely spam's up a thread.

There are other ways to advertise a new pool, like SuprNova just posted, the main page of the pool op's website, and a twitter feed.

However, I do think mod's should also do something about the FUD spreaders, don't just come down on the pool ops.

FUD is healthy and needed if there is a free for all scam environment..
funny you say they should so something about FUD'ers and NOT the scammers LOLOLOL
that is a coin cloners desperate little attempt to cry for protection for your shit coin cloning here i think.

guys don't forget half these coin cloners run pools too..
how else do you think they collect those bounties LOL

and if anyone thinks i just said that because i am trying to cover my own behavior i am not..
i rarely ever post on coins in the ANN section and i actually try and leave them alone ..no matter how scammy they are.
simply because my posts will not do anything but bloat the forum.. and it won't do any good
AND i don't want to bump their crap coin topics for them hahha

Well put. I actually can see the logic to this now...
If a dev can't answer a pm, then it's a scam. In fact, this is probably one of the best ways to nip the whole "48 hour dev" thing in the bud.
As for censoring FUD ... That's ridiculous, FUD as some call it is what I call UD ... If you don't have uncertainty and doubt over a coin promising the world and pushing for 24 hour pow times then you're the bigger fool.
My concern is by targeting mining pools though, it's going to accelerate ICOs and the like. Take a look at GroupCoin for example... Promising "fair distribution" but has NO POW PHASE. All ICO sales.

The bad..

It's really going to centralize the altcoin sector much more than it already is. Smaller pools, like ourselves, struggle to get many workers as it is, and I'm guessing it's going to be much, much less from this point forwards. We HAVE to keep reminding users in threads that our pool is there, and the features we offer, or we simply don't get noticed. For example, our pool charges 0.75% for fees, which is one of the lowest around.. but in most OPs you won't see that detail - only in our ad where we list our main advantages.

What I can see happening is basically the hashrate on the few big pools, Dedicated, Suprnova, Suchpool etc, is going to increase and all the other pools are going to get fewer and fewer workers.

Why not make it so each pool can post once in each thread with their ad.. any more than once and it's spam. I don't see the problem with allowing one "ad" each. It's still not ideal for smaller pools like us but it's a bit of a compromise at least.
+1 This would be a whole lot better.

+2.  This should be the compromise and the solution.

A few thoughts as both a pool op and a miner.

Pools should be allowed to post ONCE per thread that they are going to support the coin in the thread, any more they should be banned. I don't feel that just posting in the thread talking about the coin, hoping others read their sig to check the pool's mining thread is fair at all.  I agree that the huge pool posts, and pool spamming needed to stop, but this rule takes it to the extreme is is too far.

Second, if a coin is having an issue (blockchain fork, hard fork, etc) pools should be able to post in the thread to say the have updated to the new code, are now on the correct fork, etc.  Having to jump between the coin's ann thread and the pools mining thread when there's an issue will do more harm then good to the miner's trying to get info on where to mine. 

Putting the dev in charge of updating the OP is bad for two reasons (already stated, but needs to be said again).  This allows the dev way to much power in what pools he/she wants to have support the coin, and could make or break a pool depending on if the coin is successful and the dev decides not to list it, or didn't see the pool's PM.  During a launch, the dev should be concentrating on making sure the coin and it's network are operating as expected, and not having to check their PM's every 5 min to see if pool want's to support the coin or not. The dev has enough to worry about already and this will only make their job that much harder. (the good dev's that is)


What about multipool's who's soul purpose is to support that coin?  Are they allowed to post update, etc, or does it too need to have it's own tread in the mining section?

Good points. This is definitely more advantageous for the larger pools. I'm not sure of the process, but I've seen pools listed on the very first announcement. Maybe they reached out to the coin dev after the pre announcement?

I agree, many were posting sometimes two times per page, and it was very obnoxious and it does need to stop.  But not letting them post ONCE in the thread that they are going to support a coin, or being allow to post updates when they are needed is not what is needed to curb the spam.

I agree, pools need to be allowed to post at least ONCE to announce the pool's services. And TROLLS are definitely spamming the forums, they need to be banned too.

Advertising mining pools is no longer allowed, including, but not limited to, altcoin announcement threads.  Mining pool ops should make one thread within the Mining section of Alt Currencies. Do not make a separate thread for each coin. Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam.



I don't like that rule at all. Why not just limit pool announcements to one post/thread? Was this decision made by only one mod? This rule has almost no advantages, coin devs, miners and pools all profit from non spammy announcements. Boo! Veto!

this is bullshit rule that fucks over those of us who want to find pool fast and grab some of the first low difficulty coins, i don't want to be checking the mining subforum or waiting for dev to get pm and add to op, this only wastes time and allows ppl with their own mining hardware and insiders to get more of the easy coins

its only spam when pool owner post their link in the same thread multiple times, don't see the problem allowing them to post once


+1

+2.  Very well said and I think it echos the sentiments of the majority.

new coin, 2 pools listed in op that don't work, dev isn't online to look at his pm and add more pools

am i now expected to go to mining section and click on every pool topic and see if they added this coin? fuck that i got work in 10 minutes

it seems that nobody wants this so why is it going ahead? let pool operator post ONE TIME it doesnt affect you in any way

after 10 years i am sick of moderated forums

Be radical, have principles, be absolute, be that which the bourgeoisie calls an extremist: give yourself without counting or calculating, don't accept what they call ‘the reality of life' and act in such a way that you won't be accepted by that kind of ‘life', never abandon the principle of struggle.

Exchange spam can be bad too !

when this guy posted.. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=258208.msg7447089#msg7447089
i laughed so hard LOL

it's a fake coin topic i made in the nooby section / jail back when you had to post in there first.
it was pretty much my first post here and there was never any real intention or actual files.
Although "Zack" had cleaned up deleting negative posts that i found funny and pm'd me "in case i was serious" lol
I thought it was funny because my fake psuedo-ann topic had all rael info copied from real coins and real people
and the part where i said i quit my job to "do altcoins" was taken from a well known Cryptsy user who said that to me on chat.
ok i am gettin' side tracked ROFL's LOL

Point being is that the exchange Comkort posted on that link earlier they added my coin.. my coin didn't exist !
and when i did a search i found the guy had spammed that same comment / post all over the forum.

So a new coin was released today and this was one of the first replies to the ann post.
2 listed pools don't work and i can't find others because of the rule that pool owners arent allowed to advertise, guess i have no way to mine this

This makes want to ask, If a pool op stepped in and answered to this with a link to his working pool would this also be considered advertising?

Don't forget to add your coin to our AltCoinCalendar!

http://shrani.si/f/3l/tb/ArziDDA/altcoincalendar250x90ban.png
   - Free countdown page
   - All coin informations at one place
   - Audience you’re targeting

PS: Add your coin even if it was already released. Only coins that will be on site will profit from new functionality we are working on.



This is the kind of thing that should be banned... just saw it on three different threads.  And looking at their post history they put it on many other threads too..

HAH you are funny. Looks like this is not forum. Because you can"t inform coin owner so he adds his coin for free no payment or % from them and he will get better recognition.

this is bullshit rule that fucks over those of us who want to find pool fast and grab some of the first low difficulty coins, i don't want to be checking the mining subforum or waiting for dev to get pm and add to op, this only wastes time and allows ppl with their own mining hardware and insiders to get more of the easy coins

its only spam when pool owner post their link in the same thread multiple times, don't see the problem allowing them to post once

Like saddampbuh said. You can"t post once to topic so you inform coin owner about the thing how you can help with recognition. I am not getting any % from it so....  Stupid rule.
And yea it was posted once to each coin that was not on our site, not to every coin. People are looking for specifications and everything and owners need places where their coin can be found. Why the f.... are they then adding their coins to our site? Because its usefull it has a lot of information that is otherwise hard to find.

Posting once should be alowed!!

No, the problem is not solved.  Dev's are not online 24/7.  Not all devs are responsive.  This allows the dev to only accept their favorite pools and accept payoffs.  This does not spread the hash.  This does not allow miners to mine until/if the dev updates the OP.  Not even close to a solution...more like a de-lution.

True, a lot of devs take too long to add a pool if they ever do anyway, this could only lead to centralization. The best solution would be to simply allow pool ops to be able to post at least ONCE.

Nah, I guess it's because twitter is trying to completely noob proof their website. You have no idea how many "non computer savy" people use it. Since bitcointalk doesn't filter posts, some of them are going to be scams.

I guess now we -want- self moderated threads for coin announcements Sad

I agree that the advertisement spam has gotten out of control, but can we at least post a one liner -once- in a coin thread? No images/etc? Just something along the lines of ______________ has added this coin

If a new coin is released, and I create a pool for it, am I allowed to post just one time to inform miners that a pool has been setup? eg: "pool is up at: pool url here"

Or is that classified as advertising spam?

I second that. The reason I said I'm against this is because it was unclear. If information such classifies as advertising according to the rule then this this is bringing ridiculousness to a new level.

I've edited the OP to make it a bit more general and cover all service related spam, which includes pools.

If a new coin is released, and I create a pool for it, am I allowed to post just one time to inform miners that a pool has been setup? eg: "pool is up at: pool url here"

Or is that classified as advertising spam?

That's got to be okay.  If that's considered "advertising spam" then this rule is beyond ridiculous.

No that is not allowed. Alteast thats why our was banned.

 3 of my posts have been deleted without explanation already and they each were simple "pool is up at ..." posts...if there were guidelines, I would follow them, but there is a lack of information of what is or is not allowed.

I agree that the advertisement spam has gotten out of control, but can we at least post a one liner -once- in a coin thread? No images/etc? Just something along the lines of ______________ has added this coin

Can we get an answer on this?

I think the keyword is advertising "SPAM" is not allowed.  If it is highly related and pertinent to the coin, it should not be viewed as spam.

As of now, no. It will be considered as spam.

Advertising spam is not allowed, this includes mining pools, gambling services, exchanges, shops, etc. Mining pool ops should make a thread within the Mining section of Alt Currencies. Most OP's already link to pools available so advertising your pool is unnecessary and leads to too much spam. Exchanges, shops, gambling sites, etc, should make a thread in the Marketplace section of Alt Currencies.

This rule really sucks.
As a miner I want to see pools I can mine at instead of having to go into another section.
Pool operators should be able to at least tell people about their pools once in the coin's thread.

THIS IS THE REAL PROBLEM HERE.


Because moderating scams gives a lot of room for abuse for staff and moderating scams gives people a false sense of security, while some scams are practically impossible to verify as such due to lack of evidence.

Well, a mod just deleted this post:

"BigBangCoin added to http://bbc.minerpools.com - Dev, please add it to the OP.

Thank you."

How in the world can this be considered spam and get deleted but we can still have Carsen creating scam coins every week and nothing happens?

I feel like the last time people were getting banned for spamming. Mods had agreed to not give out clear guidelines of what is considered spam or not just so spammers still end up getting a ban. This resulted in some pretty weird situations and also didn't seem to be fixing the problem. I'm not sure if they're going to follow the same tactic again after the massive fail it had last time.

The mods are not replying - I am supporting the removal of this rule even more.  For example, when we make a service available, most devs nowadays do not reply to PMs.  How are we supposed to let them know of the service?  The removal of a post on here earlier about a pool being available just infuriated me.

Last days a lot of pool spammers banned, (we are talking about this type of spamming) so this rule is necessary for anti-spam policy. I fully support the new rule. It's better than completely removing altcoin board.

I think we can all agree that the spamming you have linked is excessive and inappropriate.  That said, it is completely different then a pool operator setting up a pool for a new coin and notifying miners in the coin thread.

It's a bit heavy handed. Pool ops and exchanges should be allowed one post in that specific coin thread. Spam is by definition repeating the same message over and over. If it's a 1 off post then it's not spamming.

+1 That's an example of Spamming, and I think that most of us agree here that if a pool op or an exchange announces they've just added a coin (without the ann being a huge advertising gig) then it won't be spam by definition.

this is bullshit rule that fucks over those of us who want to find pool fast and grab some of the first low difficulty coins, i don't want to be checking the mining subforum or waiting for dev to get pm and add to op, this only wastes time and allows ppl with their own mining hardware and insiders to get more of the easy coins

its only spam when pool owner post their link in the same thread multiple times, don't see the problem allowing them to post once

agreed. this rule is completely bullshit

No, you can't advertise your service, be it a pool, a marketplace, etc., in other threads (that includes coin announcements). Make your own thread in the appropriate board and PM OP to add it to the main post.

Please, clarify what is classified as advertising in terms of pools. This general rule has no guidelines and posts are being removed without explanation.

Examples of what is OK and what is NOT OK would be extremely helpful.

There is a time factor when new coins are released. If I create a pool I want to inform miners as soon as possible. If I must wait for the dev to add my pool to the OP, miners have to wait as well.

It's in the benefit of both miners and pool ops, for pool ops to be allowed to post an unstyled 1 liner linking to their pool. Unstyled meaning no altering of how the text looks in a post.

Did the ones who spilled their screen filling banners all over threads ruin it for us all?

So coins launch, now pool ops cant post about their pools having the coin .

Coin gets raped by a select few who either own or rent mega hash at the start, leaving the small fish trying to solo and not getting anything.

Smart power I tell ya..... NOT.

I can understand putting LIMITS on something like this, but to outright say none of it allowed is just crazy.

What are you talking about? Advertising is still allowed, just on a reasonable level.

Sorry my bad, I've missed his post just now. Well that is a bit too much. I mean making a limitation like once per 24 hours in a thread or such would be okay I guess.
This rule is just too strict.

I understand what the mods are trying to do, but yes, this rule is too strict.

Mods, what is the harm of a pool posting just one time in a coin's ANN thread to announce their pool is ready?

I do see one bad thing that can come out of this. After a pool op makes a post about their pool, they create multiple accounts to quote it, and re-quote it.

I'm not sure how that can be stopped, but I do not think completely disallowing pool ops from posting their pool in a coin's ANN thread is a solution to stopping spam.

I've edited the OP to make it a bit more general and cover all service related spam, which includes pools.

I agree that the advertisement spam has gotten out of control, but can we at least post a one liner -once- in a coin thread? No images/etc? Just something along the lines of ______________ has added this coin

Can we get an answer on this?
No that's not allowed. No matter the formatting - it's still advertising. Use PMs to inform the coin OP and as BadBear said, if the OP never updates/cares for his thread, then why should others care about the coin.
