Thanks. Adjusted it a bit so it should display properly now.

I just wonder what the wiki is aiming to be. A replacement for the bitcoin wiki ?

Not at all. The wiki is simply a platform for organizing and displaying bounties. I do need to work on honing the message on the front page.

The wiki isn't meant to be an information repository in the way that the bitcoin wiki is. The pages here are meant to focus around getting things done. Each page should describe a task someone wants to see done. Part of the choice of a wiki is that it allows multiple people to collaborate on honing in on what actually needs to be done for a certain task.

Hi everyone,

I've been tinkering with the idea for a collective bounty creation site and was wondering if you could give me some feedback.

The idea is basically to allow many people to easily contribute funds to the same bounty.  Right now bounty creation and funding seems very unorganized and haphazard and this would allow things to get done in a bit more cohesive manner.

As an easy example, there seems to be a decent amount of interest in getting a vanity pool miner running:

Right now it's mentioned in that thread that ThePiachu would like to create a bounty for a miner to be made whenever he gets some funds to put towards it.  But what if instead, anyone of the other people expressing interest in that thread could easily chip in?

Pretty simple, but that's it in a nutshell, what do you think?

Just made use of this service this afternoon... have to say I'm impressed with the speeds and how smooth everything went.

A thought though, would it be possible to add an option to have all of the downloaded files thrown into a tarball or other archive once it's complete?  I sometimes have to work in a bit of a restricted computing environment and this would make it much easier to retrieve the files after they are finished.

Is gaining popularity all about trust?  Trust isn't needed for people to use it. They might use it because it's cheaper, more convenient and safer than alternatives.

Then there are two different levels of trust involved.
I trust the transaction system because it is completely open and understandable. No shady things going on. I can watch what's happening.

Do I trust that the value stored in my bitcoins will not evaporate one day? Not really. But I'll still use them because of these earlier mentioned three reasons.

Humans are flawed, math is pure.

That's excellent.  I can see these being used all over the place.  Hope they won't cost a mint though.

Friendly Canuck here, upping the post count...

I do appreciate the effort to keep the trolls at bay. But it kind of sucks when I don't feel I have anything to add to most things in the newb section.
