Either implement changetip to the forums or create an internal changetip function. Would also be great if it supported like the top 20 altcoins.

I've thought about that before, but I think that there might be legal problems with that. It might make the forum a "money transmitter".

Even if someone were to make such a program it is unlikely that it would get integrated into the forum as (per what theymos said above) it could potentially turn the forum into a money transmitter.

I would also assume that the bounty would likely be lowered if the "hold" were to be released as 300 BTC was worth a lot less when the post/thread was made then it is now.

I also disagree that this would be a good idea as it would likely create huge amounts of spam and would potentially create new scams when people tip eachother in order to look generous so others will end up tipping them even more money. It would also make the forum an even bigger target for potential hackers

Well you can do it in a non-spammy way, build an extension that adds a tip button and then the extension can display it as well. This would also remove the forum completely from being responsible.

Also if you are building an extension you can do it completely in javascript, so if you want to make it a plugin it would be pretty easy as well as you can block it if you want no part. Also this could block you from being tip.

Surely not with changetip? Could that not just be implemented? I think I'd like to see this feature as long as it didn't cause any problems like people have already mentioned.

I am talking about the spam that it would encourage people to post if a tip function were to be enabled. Anytime someone would tip someone for a good comment, many others would post in the thread with likely useless garbage with the hopes that the person who tipped will tip someone again

Well the forum is also mostly spam in that way. So I don't see how that would change with tipping function. If anything I think it could make people want to post quality.

I think adding changetip itself to the site would work without having to be a money transmitter. Maybe just don't make it a site function, that way a third party is taking care of all the actual bitcoin movement.

But I can understand Theymos reservation with not implementing it.

It would have to be a third-party for this to work.
Nice idea.

Are you against micro tipping in general? If so i couldn't disagree more with you. Micro tipping is currently one of BTCs valid use cases. Yes tipping will lead to evils that come with it, begging, scams etc.., but that's not good enough of a deterrent. Regardless of the forum
