They were created by Satoshi. They can be considered public domain as far as I'm concerned.

Well yes, but there is such a thing as editing. You shouldn't instantly dismiss any possibility of the BTC symbol having been removed, for instance.

Ahh yes, it makes all sense that they would put Bitcoins under the name and then remove the BTC symbol from them.

No longer active on bitcointalk, however, you can still reach me via PMs if needed.

Ok, I will use them, if Satoshi has a problem I will remove them right away!

According to Theymos, the coins can be used by anybody. Why don't you make a new one? Change the colour and all or even the coin and make a new one. You can do it using the current coin or by making new ones. Anyway, Good Luck for the coins and the forum. It is really hard to make an active forum unless there is no forum like that.Roll Eyes

I wish the I knew the terminology for this, but I'd like to call it some sort of inertia.

If a new store opens, offering a 5% discount off the normal stores, it still is not a likely competitor to companies with a pre-existing follower base, despite being a technically, better bargain.

The same happens on forums but is a much much higher factor. On forums, the other customers there are not only an indicator of good service, but the reason why you are there.
Dozens of altcoin forums have failed, because despite being more specialized and better at doing that, they are not populated enough in comparison to the Bitcointalk.org Altcoin subforums.

The only ways I can see you succeeding are:-

1- Give HUGE incentives. Yeah, it will take more than it will pay back and you will lose your userbase as soon as it stops.
2- Get a loyal userbase from outside of BTCtalk. Recruit people into the altcoin forums, not from Bitcointalk though, and ideally they should have never heard of Bitcointalk. This means, they will not have Bitcointalk.org as a better option or will be too loyal to you.
