So I was reading a interesting thread yesterday about theymos spending 1.5 million dollars on the new forum.

Please tell me what your expectations are. Are you excited nervous what new features are you looking for ?

My opinion is this forum is a huge part of bitcoin in general and I really cant wait for this new software.

Can't imagine spending $1.5 million for the new forum? But it worth it! There are almost all of bitcoin users who are joining this forum! No matter newbie or expert, they are getting a lot of info from here!

I agree with you 100 percent this forum was the stepping stone for me. There is a wealth of information on here for newbies and experts.

My expectation for a mill and a half is that the forum sucks my dick everytime I log on and after I make a log it wipes my ass too.

I'll believe it when I see it...    I know it's been a long time coming and surrounded by a lot of controversy after theymos spent $1.5 million of forum donations on it. Not to mention all the secrecy and the fact that it was supposed to be done by now (if I remember correctly).

Seems like a lot of money to spend on a forum but I'm still looking forward to the change over and more functionality (avatars etc). Be good if satoshi came back to bless the new forum Smiley

They said in the development google doc that they would have the old urls match the new forum (automatically redirect and link) at least for a while, probably after a year they will disable this as google is finished the indexing and people are fully used to the new forum. Hopefully there will be better features like a redeveloped trust system and maybe built in escrow, address signing login, 2fa... the list goes on and on

$1.5 million?!  Holy cow, I had now idea 1) forum software could be so expensive and 2) this forum was capable of raising that kind of funding.  Looking forward to the unveiling!

Mostly donations. I think advertisements were mainly used to pay moderators but blance maybe there.

There is already a long thread about the new forum software, search and ye shall find. I remember coming across that thread while checking out bitcointa.lk one time.

Bitcointa.lk is good site and IMHO, is secure. Go at your own risk!

Password won't be moved to new forum AFAIK. You will get an email to reset your password. Password log will be full of resets when new forum come. Grin

My opinion is this forum is a huge part of bitcoin in general and I really cant wait for this new software.

Did i really read that 1.5 million dollars?
A freaking forum worth $1.5 mil ?
Wow!
That would be amazing

That's a weird exception expectation for forum software dude.  Makes me wonder what you'd expect a sexbot to do.   Facilitate intelligent conversation?  Wink

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

Well I certainly wouldn't expect Bitcointalk to "facilitate intelligent conversation". That hasn't happened here since early 2011. With $1.5 mil spent they should buy 50 great computers and give them away as a promotion. They would still have enough money left to hire 12 of the most talented software engineers from Google, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Ebay and Bloomberg L.P. to work exclusively on the forum for a year. Um yeah,  I expect some pretty fucking amazing things from this software.

It's been posted there are only four full time coders working on the project.  So I guess each of them is three times better than the best from the software companies you listed.  Smiley

If they were paid $187,500 a year for two years ($1.5m) that's $50k a year more than the highest paid software engineer at the best paying companies that I listed. I hope he's getting full rights to the software and it's closed source so he can recoup some of that overpriced talent through software sales.
