Can we get a confirmation from Mr. Spread.  Him simply posting in that thread is not confirmation enough.  I'd like to see a final decision from him.

Honestly, I think we should stop bothering Mr. Spread with our petty problems.
Choosing which thread to use on the most important cryptocurrency forum is hardly petty.

It is petty, because this whole notion that we need a second moderated thread was ignited by trolls in the first place.

First you need to prove that we have no other choice but to cripple ourselves, and do what no other important coin EVER has done before:
To start a self-moderated thread.

Really, show me another coin in the top 50 that has done that!!!  ???

The truth is that there is absolutely no reason to do that, other than to harm ourselves.

I think the best thing would be to do what many of those top 50 coins have done and have their coinmarketcap.com linked discussion lead to their private forum.

1.  Link coinmarketcap.com to here.

2.  Create a new forum on here titled, "New to Spreadcoin?  Learn about it here"

3.  Create extremely useful about, FAQ, and guides for newbies in that forum.

4.  Close the self-moderated thread if Mr. Spread doesn't want it.

5.  Only use the bitcointalk thread to post updates and guide new people to here.

Don't you think we should let Mr. Spread decide which direction he wants to take first?

why? Is there an alternative to the spreadcointalk forum too?  8)

I told coinmarketcap to link the discussion to spreadcointalk.

He may want coinmarketcap pointed to bitcointalk for now.  Out of respect to him I think he should be asked.

Hey, it was your idea in the first place. But you are right, I will delete my post for now.

I am fine anyway that coinmarketcap links to the original BCT thread.  8)

Agree.

2.  Create a new forum on here titled, "New to Spreadcoin?  Learn about it here"
3.  Create extremely useful about, FAQ, and guides for newbies in that forum.
Yes, this would be useful. Don't forget that there is a wiki which can be used as a source of information for FAQ and guides: https://github.com/spreadcoin-project/SpreadCoin-Wiki/wiki

4.  Close the self-moderated thread if Mr. Spread doesn't want it.
Lets close it and use original thread. Voting is for this (I also voted to continue original thread).

5.  Only use the bitcointalk thread to post updates and guide new people to here.
Yes, guide people here, but I think there is nothing wrong to continue using original thread and answer questions there.

Thanks for the response Mr. Spread.

George, do you want to post on coinmarketcap's thread again?

Also George, are you open to a couple suggestions to make this forum a little more user friendly?

Yes, always.
Best thing is if you start a thread in the Meta-Forum.
