We do, it's called the Web of Trust. Personally, I have no problem trading with donators / VIP's in small amounts: that colored coin will disappear behind 5 X's if they scam me, and then that's 10/50 BTC "lost" on their side.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

For a place where trust is everything, and where the destiny of not only quite a lot of money, but, in part, of bitcoin itself is decided, shouldn't we have at least a rating system like eBay's?

I don't know of many forums that actually do that. Unless it's a forum that requires personal information/payment just to register an account. How do you stop people from making alternate accounts just to downvote competitors? Most of the forums I know offload that to a third source. Like heatware, but here we have the OTC and web of trust.

It's just a place where donors can conduct private trades, plan future businesses, reveal the latest scandals, spread gossip, and post photos that are much more interesting than the "count to 21 million with images" series.

On the other hand, just because we can, doesn't mean that we do Smiley

From what I hear, it is a graveyard there. However, it seems like a superb place to discuss things such as scammers where you don't want the whole forum to be able to read what's being said.

That wouldn't be surprising. It's not as if donors are more interesting or more intelligent than non-donors. So there's no real reason to frequent the secret place.

Except when Satoshi posts there. Then, the place buzzes for days.

Don't some boards have the ability for the reputation to be a value that is generated from other members +1 their reputation?  That was for some MMOG I played and seems more applicable here than there.

Why is it that the secret donator/VIP forum has me more motivated to donate than my altruism...we all know this site is great, why haven't more of us donated? A lot of people would spend a similar amount on something less fun, entertaining, or long lasting...

Nice post.

Could you add information about how the coins turn into other symbols in non-default themes? All standard (non-donator, non-staff) coin symbols turn into stars in the Core theme I am using.

Only the main default theme is supported, the others do not get regular maintenance and may be slightly broken.

I realize that, but there are many people who use other themes. This information might be useful.

OP has been edited to clarify Newbie status, and to indicate that staff members have a board to discuss moderation in. Additional clarifications and tweaks have also been added.

Also, all staff have the ability to whitelist newbies. I think they also get access to the donator forum.

For 10 BTC anyone can get 4 and a half gold coin under their name:) It would save a little time but worth it? Maybe the special content does. It might be nice to be an insider. One day I will try it.

Thanks for the post.  I think sometimes people who are new to forums in general forget that lots of posts/high ranking =/= more trust.  Also glad to see someone laying out what the ranks are, just because most forums you don't find out until you work your way through them.
