That's a great suggestion. How about: Questions seeking help for restoring user accounts or other matters concerning your customer relationship with a company should be directed at the respective customer service. Please understand that we have no insights into such matters and therefore consider them as off-topic. Improvement suggestions welcome. :)

Ripple is a very interesting cryptosystem, with entirely different solutions to currency distribution and double-spends. Because of that, I feel it ought to be discussed. However, Ripple is definitely too small of a topic to deserve its own stackexchange site. Assuming we want to allow Ripple, we have a choice: Make a one-time exception for Ripple. Change ...

There appear to be about 200 uses of the tag "mining" and only 2 of "miner". The popularity sort of speaks for itself - the tag "miner" is not that far removed from "mining" as to make it useful by itself. I'd make it a synonym.

This has been repaired to use the site's description. Bitcoin - Stack Exchange is for Bitcoin crypto-currency enthusiasts.

Yeah, that didn't help anyone. I have removed it.

They should be merged into one tag. My suggestion would be transaction-malleability as, while it may be the transaction id that is changed, I haven't seen it called transaction id malleability so far. Update: txid-malleability, malleability have been merged into transaction-malleability. txid-malleability has been added as synonym for transaction-...

Proposition: charts should be retained and graphs merged into that.

On second thought, I think that was not the best solution then. I would like to propose the following: The tag coinbase.com should refer to the company Coinbase. Examples: How did Coinbase monitor BTC transactions? How do I reset my TFA token in Coinbase? The tag coinbase-transaction should refer to Coinbase Transactions. Examples: Who generates the ...

Yeah, that looks right. Retagging.

I've deleted the extraneous "e.g.". Thanks!

Well spotted. I agree, dropping the e.g. would make sense. Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies is a question and answer site for cryptocurrency enthusiasts. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about Cryptocurrencies such ...

Thanks. Copy-paste mistake. Fixed now.

We should merge hashing into hash, because the latter looks nicer, and merge hashrate into hashpower, because the latter is more popular. We should also fix the description on hashrate Edit: Done.

This is a very good suggestion, and exactly what meta is for. I think you are right, and I would suggest that we merge solo into solo-mining, which users can suggest and mods can do by themselves. That way, it is only a few clicks and we don't have to manually edit questions whatsoever. :)

As it is, I would assume that questions tagged with bitcoin-protocol are a subset of protocol. I think it that I created the bitcoin-protocol in March, but today I am not sure if that made sense: While in the long run the protocols might further distinguish and it would make sense to have a bitcoin-protocol to cater to issues that specifically refer to ...

The [coinbase] tag could refer to the business and the tags description would be updated accordingly. The description should clarify that questions concerning 'coinbase transactions' are tagged with [reward].

Emmett answered this over at Area 51: A bug caused 65 users to be doubly listed in various Top Beta Users lists in Area 51. It's been fixed, and the duplicate entries have been removed, so gavinandresen only shows up once now.
