Suggested improvements / Re: New image hosting site for members

There is a language switching package, and I was tempted to enable that, but as we are supposed to be an English education site, I held off until I got some opinions from you guys.
I think it is much better to keep the site's language in English. Some members who will use the site might don't understand some contents but they will be force to speak in English  ;D

There are several related sites and other Educative sites where when non-English speakers are really forced to speak English. Also the possible users of this Image hosting site are from Bitcointalk and Fittotalk so I'm sure that the majority of our future users knew how to speak English even a little or the basics of it.

I've seen that the site now has a comment area (or it's already there since the beginning, I just didn't notice it) and that's great. I'm  willing to collect more images here in my town and let them see and give any expressions about it  ;D

About that Google Maps, so the image taken and uploaded should be located in a Map using Google map am I right? If yes then it would be great, but some users really don't want to reveal their location even their country  ;D

Welcome to the forum, and we will be pleased to help you as much as we can. I changed your title to remove the capitalisation, as That is a personal annoyance of mine, and it often causes me to skip over threads. Several of the senior members of Bitcoin Talk have the same attitude.

I changed your opening post a bit in the quote above. I'm on my first couple of coffees, so it is a bit of a mix of my personal style, and accepted modern Internet English. I have also written a posting guide, and it is on one of the boards above, or you can view it as a single page here. -

I was hoping to use Google maps in association with picture submissions, but it looks as if you need to pay a licence fee, so that will have to wait for a while.

I enabled the travel map and itinerary plugin, but the link isn't displaying t the moment. Apologies for that, and I'll do a bit more research into it.

I'm grateful to Silent for his picture submission, and for making me realise the possibilities for this site. I'm adding some plugins to the cms, and I'll make a few more enhancements.

I'd be particularly interested in members submitting their travel pictures, especially if they include some descriptive narrative.

We aren't really concerned about ranking restrictions here. The main purpose of the community is to help members to improve their English posting skills, and to enable them to join and start good discussions in the Bitcoin Talk forum.

Yesterday, theymos announced that

Due to excessive garbage-posting, you now need 1 merit to be a Jr Member. All existing Jr Members who didn't meet the requirement were demoted. Also, newbies can no longer set any signature or personal text.

This means that newbies can no longer participate in signature campaigns. In their place, I would reflect on the reason for imposing such restrictions (hint: spam, shitposting) and focuse on improving the quality of their posts, rather than hunting for campaign managers, many of whom, for example, yahoo62278 will never add to the spreadsheet the person who writes low-grade comments. Instead of annoying managers with apply forms, work on the content and form of your posts. If you see that the bitcointalk community accepts and evaluates what you write with merits, then you`ll have at least some grounds for participating in signature campaigns.

I've created an image hosting site for members of the Fit to Talk project.
It needs a bit of customising, but when I've done that, you will be able to post your travel pictures, and discuss them here on the boards. When you have joined, you will be part of a group called "fitters". At the moment I've only loaded one image, but this is the gallery index page.

Let me know what you trhink of the idea.

Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies / US maturing treasuries are not being renewed.
« Last post by Talk Merit on September 16, 2018, 09:03:37 AM »
When a US treasury matures, the US government just send you the money. Some of the treasuries are not being renewed, and the released money is being invested elsewhere. Russia nnd China have tripled their investment in gold over the last couple of years, and yet the price hasn't risen. This would seem to indicate a manipulated market, and at some time the lid will have to blow off.

I believe that the same thing is happening with Bitcoin, but on a much reduced scale. The supply of "real" Bitcoin is very limited and small (by world standards), and this leaves the way open for massive price rises.
