Well at least @shorena had the guts to admit it was he/she that reported my posts to the mods.

Now would the mod who moved the topic please also have the balls to actually step up and say who they are?

The mods don't care (that is clear enough already).

You can't judge it now because the mods may not have seen this post. That's why I keep saying to you to send PM to them.

If you guys think that a technology created to do Turing complete txs across any blockchain is just some alt-coin then fine - you lose (this very forum represents the "old world" that we are going to replace anyway).

Like I said, they may not have seen this post. Anyway, it is you who judge the forum for your needs. So you are free to leave or stick with this forum. Smiley

I think the mods do watch the Meta topics (if nothing else) so let's see if one of them steps forward to say they moved my topic (actually I thought you could actually tell that before - has that changed?).

You were really contributing and helping others but now you are making double post? Undecided

Well at least @shorena had the guts to admit it was he/she that reported my posts to the mods.

Where did she do that?

Now would the mod who moved the topic please also have the balls to actually step up and say who they are?

They have the balls but they may not have seen this or didn't have the time when they saw this post.

Okay Mohammed Zahir - you make a good point.

I got a bit upset as after nearly a year of effort in creating a technology that has been designed to work with all blockchains I get treated like some snake-oil salesman selling some new alt-coin.

I just wish those with *some brains* would actually read the material and work out what is what.

Yes they do, but it's the weekend and they also have lives outside of this forum. The two globals BadBear and Grue (whom it is very possible one of them moved it) haven't been online since early this morning so just have some patience.

Sure - I will wait - I have already spent over a year on development of a technology that provides a "Turing complete" transaction system which can work on basically "any blockchain".

I just find it a pity that some mod can just move my topic (without even bothering to research what AT is) and then go on a weekend holiday when I work 7 days per week and nearly 365 days per year to develop it (did they do anything like that - I doubt it).

In future mods - don't go and move topics then take a holiday (that is pretty low IMO).

Do you mods really have *no standards at all* that you just move topics and take holidays and "that is fine"?

(so any controversial decision you make will be followed by a short holiday then?)

Okay - I just want to know who moved my topic - surely you can just tell me that - can't you?

(let's try and keep the emotional language out of it please - I am calm but not interested in being "dicked around")

Yeah because not being online for a few hours is taking a holiday. Be patient. You'll get your answer, but you can't expect to snap your fingers and get your way. I can see why AT might be interpreted either way. Remember that the staff are volunteers and not employees.

Okay - I will be patient - and your point is noted (the only reason I got upset is that the mod who moved the topic did not respond when I challenged that almost immediately after it as moved - but hey maybe they moved the topic just as they were leaving their home for a holiday).

I don't have the ability to do that, but it was likey a global or gmaxwel if it was moved from Development and Tech, but like I said before neither of them have been online since this morning. I'm sure you'll get an answer soon enough but I don't think it's that big of a deal. At the worst a mod made a mistake. Sometimes it happens.

Sure - I am not trying to escalate this (I got a bit pissed off though I admit).

When you put in so many hours into a project that you hope can benefit everyone and end up being "relegated" to the alt-coin board it is a bit disheartening.

If "Project Development" makes more sense then I have no problem being moved to there (as most of my other stuff is there anyway).

No one knows what AT is because everything you've written about it is either very long and technical or assumes that the reader already knows what AT is and what it's useful for. This applies to everything at ciyam.org/at. You need to clearly summarize its uses and give a basic outline of how it works in a few paragraphs, or else pretty much no one is going to dive any deeper into your documentation. (People who spend a lot of time on something very often make this mistake of assuming that everyone is interested and knows what you're talking about.)

About categorization:

Firstly, an "altcoin" is any non-Bitcoin currency, even if it uses the Bitcoin block chain in some way. And for something to be considered to accept or send bitcoins, it must be able to accept or send Bitcoin transactions directly from/to an unmodified Bitcoin Core client without any intermediate step.

Project-related topics belong in the non-altcoin sections if any of these are true:

1. People can make use of the project directly using bitcoins without any explicit conversion step, and the end result of user action is not just another cryptocurrency (or something similar). For example, if you have some sort of gambling application that uses a sidechain/altcoin/etc. to function, but people can immediately send bitcoins to it and are get bitcoins back, then that's OK. The site can also use an altcoin as "chips" if the site has an integrated and very simple way of exchanging between these chips and bitcoins. Smart-property systems are OK (whether Bitcoin-based or not) as long as the site or software that the forum topic is about can accept bitcoins directly in exchange for the smart property. A site where you pay BTC to get a Namecoin domain would be OK. But altcoin or colored coin exchanges and topics about individual altcoins or colored coins themselves would usually not be OK (even if based on the Bitcoin block chain) because the end result of user action is a non-Bitcoin currency.
2. The main purpose of the topic is to discuss the creation/extension of something that would meet the above definition. (This probably belongs in Project Development.)
3. The main purpose of the topic is to discuss a reasonably-possible extension to the Bitcoin protocol/software or general discussion about ways of using the existing protocol. For example, discussion of merged mining is OK; discussion of Namecoin is not.  (This probably belongs in Dev&Tech.)

I don't know enough about AT to say whether it belongs outside of the altcoin section or not. I don't even know whether it has a currency component.

There hasn't been any real interest or discussion in it in technical-development-- This isn't meant as an affront on your efforts: You don't see similar noise about related (and I think more relevant) projects being worked on by multiple people on the Bitcoin Core team (moxiebox), simply because they're also not mature, and not yet interesting to a wider audience.

The last updates I saw on it were repeated duplicate threads announcing a really large bounty for creating an altcoin based on it.

With the lack of interest and constant bumping (along with post deletion), I was considering moving it between project development and altcoin subforum; the huge create-an-altcoin bounty made me think the latter were more suitable (or at least, would get you the attention you want).

Usually if there is anything I'm on the fence about I wait until someone else does a report-to-mod on it before taking action-- I'm not sure if I did in this case (if I had to guess I'd say I hadn't waited), or not, but I'm just speaking to the usual process. (Thanks Shorena for all your great button mashing.)

This thread is only 10 hours old. I work on Bitcoin things nearly every waking hour of nearly every day.  I am, however, obligated by certain biological limitations to sleep at some times. In the future, you should have PMed first: For one, I might not have seen this thread for a couple days if not for dogie PMing me, but also I would have gladly answered your questions... and there wouldn't be a need for me to wake up to pages of antagonistic complaints because I had the gall to take a few hours off Bitcoin in order to sleep.

CIYAM's problem solved. gmaxwell has given good points for moving it, if it is undone, please consider not following what you did earlier. Smiley

Everyone has a "bad day/night" and last night was one such for me (this is what happens when you stay up until 4am 7 days per week for months working on projects).

I apologise for "going a bit crazy" and have sent @gmaxwell a PM requesting that the topic be unlocked and moved to Project Development (as another mod suggested that might be an appropriate section).

@theymos "Automated Transactions are a Turing complete smart contract implementation designed to work on any blockchain" (when I have enough spare time I'll add that to my website along with some more simple descriptions of various use cases).

6-7 hours are fine for sleeping, atleast sleep for 6-7 hours.

I apologise for "going a bit crazy" and have sent @gmaxwell a PM requesting that the topic be unlocked and moved to Project Development (as another mod suggested that might be an appropriate section).

No problem for me, I do understand! Although you have done publicly, if I were you, I would PM shorena(& anyone else) about my attitude at that time.

@theymos "Automated Transactions are a Turing complete smart contract implementation designed to work on any blockchain" (when I have enough spare time I'll add that to my website along with some more simple descriptions of various use cases).

Good luck!

Mind locking this thread and the other?
