Why is the wallet down on most exchanges. this happens far to often. I may just bail as i have read the horror stories of lost SIA coins. have dev team come up with a fix for this?

I don't know where you heard that. No one has lost Sia coins because any flaw in the Sia blockchain. The only issue has been problems with delayed withdrawals from Poloniex due to their negligence. There has been a huge increase in the volume of transactions in the network and the developing team provided tools to the exchanges to minimize the issue. While Bittrex, Shapeshift, Yobit and Bisq had no further problems since these tools were provided, Poloniex has not done their part to fix it. In any case, it simply means withdrawals are usually delayed a few hours (mostly) or a few days (rarely). A few cases has been reported of tickets never solved in Poloniex of withdrawals pending since one or two months.

But it a problem entirely of Poloniex, just stay away from them. If you want more info about the issue check the last part of this article in the wiki: https://siawiki.tech/wallet/transactions_confirmation_and_exchanges_issues

It is down on other exchanges as well, here is my screen shot from cryptopia.  I see this all the time on every exchange I deal with and it only happens to my SIA coin investment. This leads me, an investor, to the conclusion that this coin has issues. There always seems to be broadcasting issues. If I feel this way, I believe it may be why the value keeps dropping. Investors bail when there is reoccurring issues. If this was a one and done fixed issue I would be able to continue holding and I do not blame the exchanges as too many are reporting issues, the coin needs to work end of discussion.

If you read the link I provided you in the previous post, you could have learn 2 months ago there was a network problem due to an unexpected increase in the number of transactions because of massive hype after the coin value increased about x30. Do you want to know more about what the dev team did to address it? Just ask. Read here: https://www.reddit.com/r/siacoin/comments/6er35v/what_we_are_doing_about_poloniex_withdrawals/

Firstly, other exchanges are working flawlessly as I mentioned. Bittrex has proven to be very reliable and it is most used by community. If you want to a trade a coin, move to the exchange that works instead of complaining about your favorite exchange not working.

Secondly, it is a blatant lie claiming that the value of the coin is dropping, Bitcoin value has increased a 15%-20% these past weeks, and so every other coin has devalued compared to BTC. Compared to the dollar value, Sia has been stable around $0.008 and these past days it has reached $0.009-0.01

I have a look at the SiaHub https://siahub.info/network everyday. As long as the utilized storage goes up steadily I'm happy.

Value of SC/Siacon is very predictable. Just like some of the altcoins that you can predict how much would go high and low. Some of investor and traders call it "Weekly trading" means holding of it and dumping it of before the week ends.

Is the community reaching a general consensus on what to charge per TB for storage?  Or is it just charge whatever you'd like?  Is there a way to see what others are charging or some type of guideline?

Thanks,
Huck

This is the coin I feel most confident in.  It may not have the fastest ROI but it will succeed and it will take time.  This isn't a coin for day traders, this isn't a coin for weak hands.  This is a coin for people with foresight.  It may not make you rich but you will most likely make a very very nice profit in a few years.

ASICS are coming out and proof of burn will take this coin to the moon in a couple years. 

I hope it crashes because I would love to sock more away.

Each host decides his own pricing, but as it is a competitive process, and so low-scored (expensive) hosts don't get contracts, the market pushes the prices down. Top hosts have been asking steadily less than $1-2/Tb/month the last months.

You can check this host database: https://siahub.info/ Click on the "score" column and it will order hosts according to their score. That way you can check what top hosts are asking

You shouldn't hope for a crash. You should just keep buying!!!

I think price will find new floor at these current level somewhere. I really don't see the value of Sia declining anymore which to be worried about. It has already fallen unexpectedly lot while everyone was waiting and thinking to see it rising with uptrend. Someone surely buying and accumulating slowly slowly.

I don't think it is a good time to get out at the moment.

I think we are waiting for big price bump in the SIA coin, as Bitcoin price is increasing the value of SIA should increase but it is kept reducing the price of SIA. What is happening with the SIA there is no update from the dev team.

You don't strictly mine with HDDs on Sia. Instead, what you do is offering your HDDs for hosting other people's files. This is called "hosting" or "farming". Just try it by yourself: download the 1.3 version of the Sia Client and go to "Host" tab. You choose your pricing and other parameters and if you are competitive (under $1-2/Tb/month) you'll start receiving contracts.

There are a couple of guides for hosting out there, but they are both outdated. I am currently writing a new and (I hope) very detailed guide for the Sia Wiki. I hope it will be ready tonight or tomorrow.

Mining is done in Sia by traditional PoW

Is there a decent block explorer? The one under explore.sia.tech does not allow for search of specific transactions or addresses.

None of the two available blockchain explorers (the one you linked and http://explorer.siahub.info/ ) allow you to check addresses' balance. But both allow to check transactions: introduce the TxID on the "hash" field
