Reorganizing the list

The fight to be on top of the list on this page is disappointing. I think the page is already in need of reorganization; perhaps we can sort it by actual popularity. Suggestions? --Taras (talk) 00:58, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

just keep it alphabetized and ban anyone who tries to jump the line :) Nanotube (talk) 20:34, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Adding IPv6

Support for IPv6 is a very important transition, both for TOR, and for general internet connectivity.

  • In Oct 2012, support for TOR clients connecting to relays as well as relays publishing IPv6 addresses and accepting clients connecting over IPv6 had been implemented.
  • By Jan 2013, support for exiting to IPv6 destinations had been implemented.

Please see the [TOR on IPv6 roadmap] for additional details regarding TOR and IPv6.

Using, I've tested for accessibility to each provider's homepage via IPv6. The following is proposed for satisfying a yes listing critera:

  • must report a valid AAAA record for provider's homepage.
  • must be able to load the provider's homepage via IPv6.

Request for deletion

I nominate this page for deletion. Reason: Nobody is willing to frequently update it. It's completely useless and misleading. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chmod755 (talkcontribs)

Agreed, though my reason is more that this isn't directly Bitcoin-related. At best it's a list of VPS providers that accept Bitcoin - in which case, would we also be listing every flower store, restaurant, etc. that accepts Bitcoin? I feel that other sites are more suitable for that purpose (including e.g. OpenStreetMaps' data) TheRealSteve (talk) 15:11, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Also agreed... This page was more useful when it was first created, but nowadays it is somewhat difficult to find a VPS that doesn't accept bitcoin. It's become an annoying advertising convention since then. I guess we'll wait a few days to see if there are any objections. Taras (talk) 22:48, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
I understand the reasons mentioned above, but I'm not sure removing this page is the best option. For me this wiki is an important source of clientele. I think removing this page is not good for the completeness of the wiki and the trade section. Visitors of this site now are able to see for example VPN providers, but not VPS providers. I'm willing to help moderate the page to prevent people from ignoring the alphabet ;-). Bitcoincloud 2015-04-09 15:28 GMT +1
I agree with BitCloud. This wiki is a very good source of clients who wish to pay with BTC. Removing this page is not a good idea. Banning or suspending members who don't wish to co-operate will be helpful. But removing this page is not at all a good idea and I can also help in moderating page being neutral.
