I blame Brave too. This isn't the first shady thing that's gone on with BAT.

Edit:

It really looks like Brave made this call: https://community.brave.com/t/uphold-kyc-know-your-customer-verification-is-now-required-in-order-to-receive-bat-publisher-payouts/42035

Here on Uphold it says you don't need to verify unless your lifetime transactions are over $1000: https://uphold.com/en/blog/using-uphold-how-to-get-verified

A proposed Uphold alternative, that still requires identity verification: https://brave.com/brave-civic-partnership/

BAT is funded and founded by some Mozilla guys, so I don't know why I expected something better. I'm getting the impression that they're scared of the feds looking into BAT. If everyone insists on pressing the easy button, nothing good will ever happen ever.

Unfortunately, it looks like that's the future for crypto, period.. Their argument is..

How do they know who you are? You can be using the currency for terrorism, money laundering, etc. More and more exchanges are adopting KYC & AML regulations, and more states are making it necessary. To the point where it defeats the purpose of cryptocurrency's original intent lol.

https://cointelegraph.com/news/what-crypto-exchanges-do-to-comply-with-kyc-aml-and-cft-regulations

"Part of the United States Department of Treasury, hinted that AML compliance will be fundamental to the stability of crypto exchanges in the coming years: 'We will hold accountable foreign-located money transmitters, including virtual currency exchangers, that do business in the United States when they willfully violate US AML laws.'"

"Yaya Fanusie, the director of analysis for the U.S. Foundation for Defense of Democracies Center (FDD), earlier in September 2018, told the U.S. Congress that terrorist organizations aren't using cryptocurrency as a funding vehicle. However, the U.S. House of Representatives, on Sept. 26, passed a bill that would establish a task force to fight the use of cryptocurrencies by terrorist groups."

My screenplay/graphic novel is far from ready to even be read much less be blocked. They might preemptively censor it, but I assure you nothing in it is gross or sexual.

If you see your user history appears empty or things are missing, just be patient and it will all re-appear once the database is done re-sequencing everything. Everything is fine, just part of the database adjustment process. Should take about 12 hours to finish and then everything will be right back where it should be.

Even if that is including the IP2 section, that is one hell of a number for a startup. So the challenge now would be 'how to get the lurkers to sign up'....My thinking is the UI overhaul plus some sort of a welcoming popup that would elaborate the value of 'no censorship' in this Orwellian age...You guys might have different plans though based on your research of the competition and their strides to raise the value of the forum in users eyes......This is all very interesting to me, a very cool thread.

Absolutely nothing other than turning the addon off. I had no idea there was even a cache for the addon.

I'll report back when I get around to testing it again, but normally I don't use the chat. I think I used it once in total, not that it's useless, just no one is around when I start posting which is normally at night.

haha /u/d3rr look at this weird behavior from the software.

Thanks a lot for checking it out! We had some other issue back a while ago where the 'subscribe' buttons to subs were being hidden by ublock, so my suspicion is that it's the real problem. If you ever figure out how to re-enable the double-back thing, let us know!

Maybe it's some ublock cache thing, and what you did cleared the cache? I can't reproduce the issue either

OK, so I first disabled Ublock (BTW, I use to use Adblock Plus) and enabled chat, and the behavior started again. After I re-enabled Ublock, the behavior disappears without disabling No Script, which was the next step. Now I don’t get that behavior even with both addons enabled. Quite weird, but not sure if it’s fixed since I can’t reproduce this right now.

Could be either an ublock or no script issue, but not sure.

I use firefox with adblock plus and have never ever had this problem even once. So it must be to do with ublock or no script. Could you try an experiment and temporarily disable those plugins and see if it fixes it for you? If it does, see if you can figure out which one in specific it is. That'd be super helpful.

I can reproduce it if I actually use chat, and that part probably can't be fixed. But it shouldn't screw you by default.

We have a canary at /s/saiditcanary to report if there is a problem, at the very least. We also have no ads, so that removes that influence. We also have very low operating costs that we've spent a lot of time streamlining, so we won't need an "angel investor" to save us one day in the future when our financials get out of control, as happened to voat.co. On top of all that, we're again thinking of moving to Switzerland, or some other non-US and non-EU server setup.

SaidIt has always had that problem with needing to hit the back button twice.

Haha this is the first d3rr and I are hearing of this at all, because neither of us have experienced it. But apparently it's a fairly widespread problem! I'm glad it was brought to our attention.

There are also sometimes when I click a link, and the SaidIt site itself just times out. I'll refresh and everything will be back to normal, but I'm assuming that's part of the burps you guys are talking about?

Yeah that's what we're talking about, exactly.

Tbh, I've always experienced this too but I assumed it was due to DDOS attacks or load times or whatever other possible logical reason.. I only really started using IRC chat recently, around the time you fixed that issue for me, but even before that, for as long as I could remember, SaidIt has always had that problem with needing to hit the back button twice.

Oh thanks for reporting that bug, I've never experienced that before. What browser? Both Chrome and Firefox don't have this issue, so it's probably something to do with the browser, or a plug-in to the browser, I'd guess

so the chat iframe steals your focus/cursor on page load? Maybe we can disable that part.

Yeah, this has to do with chat. When I disable the chat, I only need to hit the back button once.

And no, you don't need to interact with the chat.

but maybe 'put a spotlight' on a post or comment (fitting with the 'lightbulb' upvote icon), rather than gold.

I love that idea. Something useful and interactive rather than a static token.

Might be hard to code though...

Yeah, don't even bother with stuff like that.

If that is the same gold lounge people were allowed in when someone gifted gold, then it was much ado about nothing, anyway.

The first time, I made a few comments for a few days but got the impression it was basically other people cluelessly checking it out like myself after being gifted gold, but nothing of any substance was being discussed.

I didn't bother going back after the first few days (of the 30 allowed) and not at all on subsequent gold awards.

I perceived it as a non-serious token effort. Here, if they do the award thing then just don't bother with that aspect of it. Keep it very simple and straightforward — Reddit's award and membership system is too complicated.

Just thinking out loud, but maybe 'put a spotlight' on a post or comment (fitting with the 'lightbulb' upvote icon), rather than gold.

Hi. Just signed up today. Loving there is no downvote button and excited to have an alternative. Is there anything like the old sidebars that gives a description of what the subs are about? Since we're automatically subbed to everything, I'm seeing subs I have never seen on R-it but haven't a clear idea what they're about.

There's the lounge subreddit on reddit, but it's basically full of rich morons talking about stuff "Us poor people" just wouldn't understand or a mess of random stuff. I would prefer if saidit avoided making an /s/lounge reddit parody. Thing was sad to look at.

It would be an easy way to generate income to run everything. Being able to see that someone was willing to spend money to show their appreciation for a comment or post makes it feel more personal and encourages users to keep using the site.

all time. do you mean if you use chat just once it somehow infects your browser so you can never hit back once on this site? Doubt it. It is not the end of the world just kind of annoying.

on our 1 main server. So it would basically double our CPU power. The open source code used for saidit is great, because it's natively designed to be deployed on many servers like this. So it should be a straightforward upgrade when the times comes, and d3rr is already doing some testing to ensure our upgrade goes smoothly. But hopefully we can optimize the CPU loads caused by that recent bug fix, so the hardware upgrade is not necessary for a few more months, and we can save a little money. We're really trying to make each dollar stretch as far as we can! Having a financial buffer is

thank you homie

I don't think it does. People buy and award gold to show appreciation, probably for both the comment and the forum. Charitableness is its own reward. They don't do it to get gold privileges, I don't think.

you can add a gold feature so we can give post and comments gold that way you can make some money to fund the servers

The 1000 limit bugged a lot of people: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=reddit+1000+limit&va=z&t=hk&ia=web

I think we're arguably 50 times better than reddit now. Assuming we can keep the number that high.

The 1000 item limit bugged the heck out of me, because it meant I couldn't go past 5 pages on the /new tab, and it meant that I simply could never view my full post history either. It's very important for that data to be as accessible as possible, imo.

Wow that's fantastic news about the mirroring software, /u/d3rr and myself will have to give it a try soon, and I'll make an announcement that both sites are mirroring each other's data and our cross-site federation is formed and operational. Very exciting! Nice work, good going. I think this will be great for both our sites.
