+5%

I was so tempted to post just the above  +5% and leave it at that for the sake of irony.

I've decided instead to create an exceptionally constructive post ( :P) by pointing out what I see as the opposite ends of the spectrum.

  • It can legitimately be argued that these signatures will detract from the ambiance in the forum by 'cheapening' the atmosphere and annoying people.

  • It can legitimately be argued that these signatures will remind people of a decent on ramp, and will therefore serve to benefit the BitShares ecosystem as a whole. It will also help those who put time and effort into creating metaexchange, which may motivate them further to continue doing good work for BitShares.

Where do I fit on the spectrum? Dunno - I JUST WANT MY BTS REWARD!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

It remains to be seen how aggravating the signatures will be. I'm gonna do it for the time being and see how it goes...

edit: although this is a good question:
I thought you guys act as a BitShares <> other coins exchange?

was there a shift in your PR?

Do you ever go on the letstalkbitcoin forum? People have used this kind of signature advertising there. Are you doing this outside of  bitsharestalk at all?

So we're going to pretend that links in signatures aren't spam?

imho, it's in a public place, so it's advertising, not spam.

spam, to me, is when it's invading your personal space, like your email account for example.
Ok, I can learn to adapt to that definition :-)

AFAIK you can even DISABLE signatures in the forum settings somewhere
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

Cool, I didn't know that, Xeroc. That solves the issue quite neatly from my point of view, since people can easily opt-out then.

I agree, and am willing to give it a shot as well.

I think reaching out to other communities is a great idea.

I see you came to terms with the idea quite quickly!

I have a question. How will you be the counting posts? Have you written a script? I notice the signature is applied to a user's old posts too. I assume you'll count posts made after the forum member has 'signed up' in this thread. I'm just curious.

Another thing - are you sure you can afford this? Might you need to apply a cap somehow, or ask people to volunteer to do it for free?
What if NameNarwhal creates accounts called MetaexchangeSignatureNarwhal0, MetaexchangeSignatureNarwhal1, MetaexchangeSignatureNarwhal2, MetaexchangeSignatureNarwhal3... :P

you are correct only posts - after your post here counts!

only junior members and above counts.

we will only count posts who are making sense - so for this reason - i will count it by hand :D

If we really reach to "many" people, we will change for the next month our proposal, but we don't expect this happen.

Going through a bunch of users posts and trying to decide which are good posts and which are fluff seems like a massive amount of work.
