Suggestions / Re: Bring back the VIP board
« on: December 13, 2014, 07:27:13 AM »
I think I know why the VIP board was made since, you know, I made it.

We do a lot of things to give incentive to people for upgrading to VIP/Gold, and a board on the forum isn't really one of them. No one would pay for access to it, so that's really not a selling point.

Quote from: Inv??Gir
Generally you can almost talk about everything on this board unless it has rules
I can't even.

Every board on the forum is subject to the forum rules, except spam (which I'm not getting into this argument, if you know me then you know I think spam is a stupid board). This includes posts, like the ones that were posted to bring all this attention to the board recently, were against the rules, as they would be on any other board. It has no bearing that it was posted in the VIP board.

Looking at the VIP board I almost want to agree with Waffle. Th last constructive post was posted over 4 months ago. That said, I don't think that justifies removing the board, mostly because it doesn't actually hurt anything as long as the admins simply delete rule breaking threads, as they should in ANY board.

The way I see the VIP board is a place to ask other VIP/Gold members about benefits and abilities that only VIP/Gold members get, and up until now that's really what it was for. Given that, I see no problem with the board as long as standard forum rules apply to it.

Okay, should probably respond to this.

Right away, I'll say no, there won't be a moderator rank, and here's why:
We currently have 26 members of our administration staff. Any given week you'll see that maybe 7 of them actually play on HRP for more than an hour. We would be the first to admit that we have a general problem with coverage when it comes to admin playtime, but what I won't say is that adding another group of staff that have less powers, will solve anything.

From what I see when I look at play logs for all players in general, you see the same 60-70 players who play a lot. Of those, the playtime is always the same, a nicely formed bell curve. The person is really into it for about 2-3 weeks, then it becomes a chore just to get on. That's what is wrong with adding responsibilities to a server like this. Very few of the admins will say they want to go on HRP because it just seems like work. Giving any of our current players the same level of responsibility will result in the same decrease in interest. So realize that the reason we don't have more admins isn't that we don't trust people in the community, we do. We just know how annoying it really gets. Everyone always 'asks for admin' without realizing that it just ruins the game for you.

The answer to your problem of 'catching minges' is to record. It's not instant bans, but it should result in less issues. I understand that doesn't help any, but really, what can we do? I'm in works with some of the Lua devs to hopefully bring some more powerful tools to our administration staff that help us act more quickly and decisively on rule breakers, but while that's happening it's important to realize that we're doing the best we can with what we have.

A lot of our staff will probably be restructured when CGRP comes out (depending on its success post-release) and that may result in the need for such a rank if we get overwhelmed, but as it stands, we have more administrators than we really know what to deal with, just no one wants to play all the time.

Seriously though, how do you get viruses? I haven't had one since I was 10 and downloaded the first exe I found when trying to pirate a game. If you told me you'd give me $1,000 if I could get a virus in the next hour, I'd be out of luck. I have no idea where to find one, aside from research pages. I run MSE, but I've never once had it trigger, common sense must be the best anti-virus.

I've been a flux user for the past 3 years. It is seriously a fantastic program. Your eyes will thank you. It will be jarring at first to see how 'orange' it is, but you stop seeing that after a while and settings on it allow it to change very slowly so you never even notice the color change. You'll sleep better.

It was in the recent update to chrome 37, It improves font rendering. If you were a font nerd, before this update chrome <37 would piss you off because the font would look slightly off. (I'm not one, so I really can't tell you how it's different) So Knoxed is right, except he should say 'disable' DirectWire, because it should be enabled right now.

[ending the quote chain, because it's gay]

BTC* is different from PayPal in that the transaction isn't, or I should say 'doesn't have to be', run through an institution like that. This means, there's no fee for transactions.

One could also say it is more secure. When you enter your credit card online, that company can charge it all they want. If you link a PayPal to a company, they can charge THAT all they want. With BTC, the only two things known about you when you pay is the wallet ID and the amount transferred. So when the website gets hacked, they don't have to say "You may be losing all your money because our database wasn't PCI complient, sorry".

I could make up more benefits for days, but I'm not going to sit here and write a paper on the subject. Here's what made me realize it's here to stay. When I bought my VPN with BTC. I clicked the button, a QR code appeared on my screen, and I got my login info. It took less than 20 seconds to do the whole process.

Question: What's the point in Bitcoin?

So I can buy certain things that you couldn't otherwise buy on the internet


Like candy
There are sites that will only accept BCs?

Some sites that are less-than-legal only accept bitcoins under the misconception that bitcoin is anonymous. In reality, you have to understand that the way bitcoin works inherently makes it easier to trace transactions than many major credit corporations. This is due to every bitcoin miner logging all transactions. The entire history of bitcoin is available to anyone.

This is also why there's a lot of services called 'anonymizers' which will bounce your coins thousands of times through wallets and return them to you, hopefully hiding your identity. Like I said before, however, this can be traced back. The only perfect way to have 'anonymous' bitcoins is to buy them from a random person on TOR in exchange for a gift card you bought out of town.

Illegal prospects aside, I personally believe that bitcoin (if not bitcoin, than another cryptocurrency) is truly the future of online transactions. The ease of use and decentralized framework provides a perfect base for expanding how we interact. I think the next major stepping stone for bitcoin is for a major online retailer (like Amazon) to accept bitcoin in exchange for goods. If this would happen, it cement bitcoin's place in our society.

Like I said earlier, you can get the routing number from your bank or Google it. Your account number will usually be found on your online banking page, or you could just call your bank and ask for that as well.

They of course can. The price right now is ~$500 per bitcoin. Yo can buy any amount you like, for example in my wallet I have 0.3373 BTC (around $174.42) What I'm saying is that you should wait until the value of bitcoin drops, relative to the USD, so that when it rises back up your bitcoin is worth more.

EDIT: It's worth noting that my projection of the price of bitcoin isn't fact. It could only go up from here, what do I know? If you want to make your own guess on bitcoin's price, a good place to start is here:

I suggest Coinbase because their the most trustworthy and straightforward service I've used, though they won't make your bitcoins anonymous. (Since your coinbase account is tied to your bank account, as opposed to you buying bitcoins using gift cards).

Right now the prices are hovering are the $500 range, if I were you I'd wait until a sink into the mid $400's before buying. To buy, you need to give them your bank's routing number (can be obtained via your bank website, google it) and your account number. Once you do this, you can buy bitcoins though it will take a few days before you get them. If you link a credit card in addition to the bank info, you can receive coins instantly.

If you want to buy anonymously, you may want to search around the TOR network, however these are usually very shady and you can't really trust them. That's up to you.
