Forum update is better than the old one. This bit thingy can only be seen if you're using a computer right? Coz i can't see it if i use my phone. I hope there will be some selection of themes.

1. Profiles

profile.png.8c03310bd399b7762b7657e8e0b3fe4b.pngThe immediate feature that you should become accustomed to is your own unique user profile. Each user has their own way to express themselves in the community by editing the various components made available to you. To begin adjusting your profile, simply go to your profile page by clicking on your account name at the top of the forum, as demonstrated in the image to the right.

From your profile you can edit and enable a few cool features. The first thing I suggest doing (if you haven't already) is to add an avatar and a cover photo to your profile. You can see an example of this by viewing mine here.

You can also enable status updates by choosing edit profile > enable status updates. This works similar to most social network platforms, in that it allows you to post updates, that might be relevant to those who browse your profile. This particular feature is very useful for instances where you may be away for for a while and want people who are looking for you to be aware.

2. Signatures

accountsettings.png.575ee74f83d533d34fbd332d106112f6.pngSo you are probably wondering, how do I get a sexy signature, at the bottom of my posts? Well its rather simple really. In order to enable signatures for both viewing and to display your own, you need to go to your account settings. See the image to the right for location. Once there, select signature form the list of items on the left. Then all you need to do is enable signatures and be sure to add your own in the area provided.

There are a few rules when adding a signature to your posts.

  1. Only one image per signature is permitted, with the dimensions being no larger than 500 x 100 pixels.
  2. You can only put a maximum of three different links in your signature.
  3. Your signature can be no larger than three lines.

If at any point you wish to change your signature preferences or even just hide a particular users signature, you can do so by clicking on the small "x" button at the top right corner of their signature, as demonstrated in the picture below.

3. Reputation

reputation.png.fd420cf64133ae211e9b9b71f7ad8546.pngThe community reputation system is built purely off of your participation on the forum, and how well you are received by your fellow peers. If the content you post is liked, then other members are able to up-vote your post or topic to show their appreciation.  Alternatively if you post spam or content that isn't very useful, then other users have the ability to down-vote your content, which reduces your reputation. Anyone caught abusing this feature will be banned, without appeal.

This system helps provide a platform that grants the ability to judge how useful a person is to this community, and will be used to assist with promoting members of the community.  If you support or like a persons contribution. Instead of replying to their topic saying 'thank you', use the vote-up feature and give them some reputation!

You can view the reputation leader board here.

Those users who succeed in receiving high praise for their content will be awarded weekly, by receiving a community reputation badge that appears on their profile. You can view a users reputation on their user profile or their postbit, which is located next to any comment or post on the forum.

Note: Maximum number of positive or negative reputation points allowed to give per day is 10.

 

 

4. Warnings

Moderators have the ability to use the warn system, to control excessive flooding of the forum or to help assist members who are in breach of the rules. You can view any form of warning restrictions associated to a forum account by viewing that users profile.

Warning restrictions can include: Spamming, Inappropriate Language (in particular personal attacks), Signature Violation, Abusive Behaviour, Topic Bumping, etc.

The result of such warnings can be the deduction of bits, restrictions associated to posting, and a complete ban.

 

 

5. Bits

bits.png.a89d8f12f64341bea84fbb6fd5b0e3ec.pngBits is the official forum currency, that can be earnt and traded freely amongst members of this community. They are awarded as follows:

  • 50 bits are credited for a topic.
  • 10 bits are credited for a post on a topic.

Additionally

  • 100 bits are awarded when an Administrator gives you reputation for your topic or post.
  • 50 bits are awarded when a Moderator gives you reputation for your topic or post.

You can view all transaction history for your bits, by viewing the transaction log for your account from the forum index. These bits will be used for certain purchases that will be made available in the near future.

You will also find that certain categories don;t add bits to your account when posting. This is setup intentionally to help keep the content posted consistent. The following categories wont apply bits: Announcements & Important Information, Forum Support and Off Topic.  This will be reviewed regularly.

Additional information regarding bits and their future, will be coming soon.

Note: Bits and reputation work hand in hand. If you are found spamming for bits, it is in every users right to down-vote your content if they don't deem it as a responsible use of the forum. This is a powerful way to ensure that you only post relevant responses and that your participation is genuine.

 

 

6. Forum Ranks

Forum ranks (also known as posting ranks) are obtained for posting valuable content on the forum. For each rank you will in turn unlock certain features. These specific features will be announced in the future. The current list of ranks are as follows:

  • Newbie
  • Apprentice (10 posts)
  • Enthusiast (50 posts)
  • Hero (100 posts)
  • Virtuoso (250 posts)
  • Master (500 posts)
  • Guru (1,000 posts)
  • Champion (1,500 posts)

so it's completely the same as it was with credits? All this bullcrap about creating forums internal currency was for what? Those are still credits but this time called Bits? 1k satoshi per post and 5k satoshi per topic? Oh wait it's again the same spamming contest and after that what? You gonna remove Bits from the forum when it ends and not allow people to redeem their bits for satoshis? Guys I'm sorry but this is just ridiculous.

it wont be the same as before I guarantee you, they're way more strict on banning spammers than befo.... oh wait.

Something worth noting is that moderators have been given more tools now around exacting non-ban penalties - as Edward mentioned, a warning can result in a deduction of bits as well, meaning particularly egregious spammers won't be profiting from this system even if they never quite get banned.

just curious about the diff. between spending account and primedice bits?

Spending account is technically all the bits that are available for use or cash out. I will correct the terminology in an update shortly. It should probably just be called Account or Wallet.
