Good morning, r/ethereum; everything you need to know in this thread; read me


Welcome!


I would like to welcome everyone to r/ethereum. Please protect this community's philosophy by respecting our rules (see sidebar or scroll down). Let me quote the most important ones here for reference:

  • Keep price discussion and market talk to subreddits such as /r/ethtrader.
  • Keep mining discussion to subreddits such as /r/ethermining.
  • Keep ordinary ICO advertisements to subreddits such as r/ethinvestor.

Feel free to use this thread to say 'Hi, I'm new!' or 'Hi, I'm not!'. If you have a question, feel free to comment and ask it below. But first make sure you are fully synchronized and have a look at FAQ on Ethereum Stack Exchange. Do you have any question that feels dumb? Try r/ethereumnoobies :D

Don't forget to check out /r/ethdev for the Ethereum developer community and post your diamond-shaped cat findings on r/ethsightings (don't forget to subscribe!). Thanks for flying with r/ethereum! :-)

Rules

Golden Rule

You are expected to treat everyone with a certain level of respect and refrain from inappropriate behavior. Examples of inappropriate behavior include:

  • Personal insults
  • Threats of violence or attempts to organize attacks
  • Slurs of any kind
  • Posting people’s private information

If you can't play nice with others, you will not be allowed to post here.

Ether Price, Market, and Mining discussions

Discussion related to the price of ether, buying, trading, market speculation, or any other price/market talk should be posted on /r/ethtrader, a third-party Subreddit not moderated by us. Besides, keep mining discussion to Subreddits such as /r/EtherMining and obvious ICO advertisements to r/ethinvestor or similar.

Duplicate threads

Duplicate threads may be deleted. It is up to the discretion of the mods.

No spamming or drive by posting

Spamming will lead to post deletion and a possible ban. Posts created by accounts that self-delete immediately will be deleted right away - no drive by posting.

Using multiple accounts

Creating multiple accounts to get around Reddit or Subreddit rules is not allowed and will likely result in a permanent ban.

Misleading titles

Posts with purposely misleading or unsubstantiated titles will be removed.

Karma & age requirements for posting submissions

All post submissions should be made from accounts at least ten days old with a minimum of 20 comment karma. This is to keep trolls and spam-bots to a minimum. Exceptions may be made on a discretionary basis; please do not message the mods for more information.


Moderation philosophy


/r/ethereum is a place for the open discussion about the Ethereum software, protocol, distributed applications, and related technologies. As moderators, we are here to make sure the conversation stays civil and productive. We will not censor posts based on personal ideology and welcome constructive discourse.

What we ask our users

  • Please utilize the up-vote and down-vote buttons. This is a built-in moderation tool that is very powerful.
  • If you submit a report about a post or comment, please provide as much detail as possible to help us more quickly sort through our reported posts/comments.
  • Please don’t report posts or comments you disagree with, only about things that break the rules.
  • We welcome discussions about other crypto-currencies and Ethereum implementations, but if the topic is already being extensively covered by other threads, we kindly ask you to consider posting it to a more specific Subreddit. You can check an extensive (but not comprehensive) list of Ethereum-related Subreddits on the "All Ethereum" Multireddit.
