How can I see the Satoshi's posts?

Satoshi has changed his forum nick to "Adamas"  Cool

Some moderators no longer display the Staff tag, displaying "Hero Member" instead.

That was always the case for Blitz. He preferred the "donator" title over "staff".

Thanks, this was useful. I think a good idea would be to include tooltips on the icons and additional tags with short descriptions. Then all the ranking would be much more clear to new users (and even to readers who, without this post, can only guess what the ranks mean).

Better to go on IRC and check someone's bitcoin-otc rating.

From this info, you should see that the post-based rankings are fairly easy to get and should not be relied on when considering someone's trustworthiness.

Well I guess the important thing is to see what they've been writing...that usually a good way to determine trustworthiness  Grin

500 posts is certainly nothing to sniff at, but it could just be a bunch of mindless rambling not unlike what I'm doing now!!

I Think One Should Apply For This When He/She Already Got 500+ Posts.
I Don't Think Anyone Will Believe Donator, VIP Etc Until He/She Have Some Experience.

Nice ranks, easy and straight forward.

A couple yes, attention whores or people who like to play the martyr. Terry Tibbs was all right though. Paid his dents eventually.

((...snip...))
Rank
Description
Tag
Brand New:Zero posts, gets 1 gold coin under his name.
Newbie:Has less than 4 hours of logged in time, and gets 1 gold coin under his name.
Jr. Member:Between 5 and 100 posts, and gets 2 gold coins under his name.
Full member:Between 100 and 250 posts, and gets 3 gold coins under his name.
Sr. Member:Between 250 and 500 posts, and gets 4 gold coins under his name.
Hero Member:More than 500 posts, gets 5 gold coins under his name.

((...snip...))

And this marks my 100th post (just testing hehe)



Also, wanted to point out that "he / his / him" aren't really a politically correct pronoun anymore. It is 2012 for heaven's sake. Would "singular they / theirs / them" be too much to ask for?

Just sayin' ... someone recently pointed out that this forum is far from welcoming to women:

I agree this forum is awful in that regard.

The only way around this is for women to be involved in the technology itself. When more women have visibility as code contributors and Bitcoin entrepreneurs - the misogynistic voices here will be smacked down quicker and harder.


It would be pointless for me to try to hide this forum from a womens advocacy group such as Ada Initiative when discussing Bitcoin with them.
It's got to start somewhere - and I don't apologize for holding this forum up as an example of something that's a bit broken, and that they may have the potential to begin to address.

edit: my comment above regarding 'risk taking' gender differences only reflects my *current* understanding.
From what I see, studies bear this out: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0167268111001533
I have no opinion on whether this is genetic or social in basis though - it's just something I see as a plausible explanation for a gender imbalance in a technology such as Bitcoin which (largely due to bad press) has a reputation as being edgy/risky.

Once that imbalance exists though - it's accelerated by the obnoxious comments which go unchallenged. Perhaps my discussion of 'risk taking' gender effects isn't helpful either - but if so - I wish there were more women around here to correct any misconceptions I have in that regard!





Edited to add:

Wait, it didn't work? I'm confused:






Edited AGAIN to add:

Wait, nevermind, it did? I checked twice before doing a screen-grab... is this rank thingy done on the same timer used to automatically convert newbie members to junior ones?

lol whatever.

Edited to add because of moved off-topic posts which were archived.

((
sorry for going off topic like that / thanks for archiving it though ))

moved to new thread ---->  Singular "they"

I wouldn't mind a bitcoin donation to keep the forum alive but 50btc.... that's quite steep for most people.

They should have the whole 5 coins turn purple, and give you special customization options. Same with the 10btc donation.

How does administration determine if someone is a scammer? Is there a vote or something?
