Thousands of people created millions of thread in BitcoinTalk in 2014. Some of them were very interesting and enlightening. Some enriched us with its data and analysis. Standing on the end of 2014, whom do you think was the best poster of 2014 ? Please make your judgement by quality, not quantity Wink

...It would be great if you mention the preferred posts of your favorite poster. Smiley

hum..
this could be a interesting question...

maybe theymos could do a poll and assign some reward to the first, second and third qualified!!!

 Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink

That would be really shady...we aren't a bank where the top ten traders get +10% reward or so Cheesy

but bitcoin alk do not have some fund to promote forum activity???

I thought that bitcointalk have funds available for this.
Also, I did not think at high awards.
I thought something like 0.5btc for the first, 0.25btc for the second and 0.1btc the third ..
or something like this...
and this would only be once a year !!!

They have the funds, just really not for to 'promote forum activity' in such a way. I guess maybe some yearly competitions could be fun though this forum doesn't really seem the type to dish out money via such giveaways. I think if it was to happen it would have to be for something that couldn't be exploited and mere votes/voting could unfortunately.

This is so true. If there was a vote where the winner gets bitcoins, we'll see the weirdest stuff
going on for sure. Automated account-creating and voting. We would witness a nice arms race of
account-creation-and-voting scripts Cheesy

You could have a contest for the most helpful posts. Lots of forums do this sort of thing. It doesn't even need to cost the forum anything. Gun forums will have sponsors, usually advertisers, run contests. Admin, mods, legendary and hero members get to vote with the admin being the deciding vote. Every rank below hero are the contestants. Contests are for bringing in new members. Legendary and hero members don't need a contest because they're going to come here anyway. Honestly, if you're a legendary or hero member and don't try to help new members at least occasionally a reward isn't going to help you. You should be banned. lol

The best poster for pure entertainment value was Dank and his alt Cryptopaths.


~BCX~

Here we go again BitcoinExpress on one of his delusional fantasies making unsubstantiated claims. I'm surprised you didn't threaten to 51% attack this thread.

As for my nominee for best poster I think it's to hard to decide there's plenty of people here posting interesting content.

I agree, maybe the contest could be for a cool custom status for a certain time? Or perhaps a title under/over the username stating that you won. I also do not think the contest should be for bitcoins.

Yeah like a star with subscript "poster of the year 20xx", but I don't mind if it's a permanent badge. Would be certainly
a cool thing.

Normal forum voting will definitely be exploited. But, if the voting takes place with bitcoin, i.e. each user need to spend bitcoin to vote an user and the prize value is less than the total amount of spent, then it would probably not be outright exploited. But, there might still be some possibilities of rigging.

It would only increase the value of accounts that satisfies whatever the criteria demanded for them be able to vote.

And demand BTC in order to vote is easily exploitable by a big whale with thousands of BTC, enough to make withdraw into FIAT impossible without some money laundering charges

to be exploited you need to

vote
change ip
vote

vote

and change ip could take several seconds to take new address....

DeathandTaxes and DannyHamilton.

Hmm.  Back in 2012 and early 2013 people used to say that about me.  I suppose that I've dealt with so many trolls and have responded to the same basic questions so many times that I've become a bit jaded and snarky in recent months.  Perhaps I'll have to make a new year's resolution to be more polite.
You are still one of my hero's. Your posts about Bitcoin related stuff are always helpful and jam packed. Keep it up man!

You missed my point. I said voting with bitcoin, which has nothing to do with IP. People can simply use an online wallet to vote, but no one will lose his own bitcoin to win a prize money of less amount. Hence, only real votes will count.

Maybe if a vote did happen, votes would have to be tied to the account, and also you would have to be full member or higher to vote. Just a suggestion, still can be abused but probably less so.
