Seems like a generic announcement thread, for any/all pools, with "only" the announcement posts allowed.
What I see in the bitcointalk announcement posts that I despise is all the "brown nosing" to add a particular coin and "coin begging" from parasites, plus bitching and moaning when it doesn't go perfectly.
The mods over at Bitcointalk sure had their hands full for a couple months there. The altcoin forum/subforums really blew up.
That being said, given the enthusiast edge that the [H] and all its troops represent, i would call mining a natural fit.
I noticed that they have been pruning a lot of "features" over there. While I've had a mostly modest sig, I recently noticed that they removed the ability to use any tags except url tags in a sig now. Which I don't mind, since most were obnoxious.
As far as ads here go, my only concern is what Kyle would say. All I know is I got a mod warning and a couple posts deleted for dropping links to my pool a while ago. I'm fine with that because hey, yeah, I got a little carried away and it's against the forum rules, so I'm not going to do it anymore. I'm just a happy forum patron here and I'm happy that Kyle took the initiative to give miners a place to talk (someplace less rabid than BCT, etc., that is).
I'm not sure what Jzegers24's relationship is with Kyle is, and maybe he has Kyle's blessings since Coinhuntr has been around for a while. If that's the case, he ought get a sticky for the pools right at the top.
ok ok ok deleting
Haha that's not the case. I figured ppl would want to know about [H] built pools which was the case wayyyyy back when I first started, but ya I could see how this could get spammy real fast when others follow. No problems
