I figured it would be extremely unlikely that anyone would ever show the 5 platinum coins.

The one person (if it is one person) who is eligible is least likely to show up and claim the coins.

This, of course, creates the challenge of how to turn away the impostors will still recognizing someone who quite likely won't make the claim.


So....

Does anyone keep track of movement in the first coin blocks?  Has there been any mapping effort to locate blocks that likely are held by original members and see if they are stagnant or in circulation?

The fact that the block chain contains every transaction ever done should make it possible to identify if Satoshi (and members of his generation) have spent their coins or are sitting on them.  Both answers have interesting implications to the market as a whole.

Very interesting questions. Haven't come across anything like this being asked/considered in any other of my readings to date. Answers would provide some food for more thought.

So you may be wondering whether you should trust someone based on those fancy coins under their name, or perhaps their post count. The short answer is: Do not use these rankings to determine trust!
This post is intended to show you as a future trader how easy it is to get a rank, so that you can be wiser when conducting a trade. As a side note, I always recommend using escrow when possible, especially when you have not previously traded with someone. Always read their posts in their profile to help determine whether they are contributing positively and to attempt to determine trust. Search the forums for more detail and read the other stickies relating to trading discussions and trust.

All the main ranks that can be handed out to normal users are: Brand New, Newbie, Jr. Member, Full Member, Sr. Member, and Hero Member.
Special notes for Newbie status: If a user has been whitelisted manually by forum administration, they will retain Newbie status regardless of their post count, until they have fulfilled a minimum of 4 hours logged in.

In addition to the main rankings, there are also sub-rankings that can be applied, and those are: SCAMMER, Donator, and VIP. Besides the colors, Donators and VIPs get other perks such as access to a secret subforum dedicated to them, and the ability change their usernames whenever they want from within their profiles. SCAMMERs have several restrictions, but are still allowed to post unless they are banned for another reason. SCAMMERs cannot change their profile (including signature, avatar, etc), cannot edit their posts later, and other things.

Finally, staff sub-rankings are as follows: Staff, Moderator, Global Moderator, Administrator, and Founder. Staff members have access to a special "Staff" board where forum moderation is discussed, as well as to the Donator board. Any staff member can whitelist a newbie, just ask!

At USD 100 now for 1 BTC, we still need to donate 50 BTC for VIP?

Yes.

Truly, you need not donate anything.  The forum has 4,000+ BTC distributed among trusted members for 'safe-keeping'.   I have yet to see a single satoshi spent to improve the forum, so I see absolutely no reason to donate to the forum.

Donate to the EFF, at least they're doing something for our platform.
