I will try to improve design of webpage in next 2-3 weeks, to look better, now it's clean but I will try to have more styles. Also translation are welcome, @d5000 can provide text to translate, I'll translate to Polish, other languages are welcome.

Great! Regarding styles, I would mainly target the headings and the site title that could benefit from another font. Also, a short two- or three-column section like on bitcoin.org (the section with "Fast peer-to-peer transactions") would be cool. I think a download section could also be added, like for example on the Litecoin site (in my opinion one of the better altcoin sites as it is not too overloaded).

Regarding translations: Are you familiar with Markdown? (It's easy, here is a cheat sheet.) If yes, simply download the pages you want to translate with the ".md" extension from the site repository (only those in the main folder are needed). If not, I can send you the texts in plain text via PM.

I committed an SVG version of the Slimcoin logo to the master branch: https://github.com/slimcoin-project/Slimcoin/blob/master/src/qt/res/src/slimcoin.svg and a GIMP xcf (for embellishment) in that same directory.

Thanks! I wasn't aware of that. I think for now I'll use this logo until we have a final "embellished" logo.
What is your opinion about the HTTPS issue? Can the key generator be safely used via standard HTTP?

(Just spotted the "slimcoin-abe" - really cool, thanks for working on that!)

Think you can use https://letsencrypt.org/ to get a free SSL Certificate.

Does someone know if there are ways to add a custom SSL certificate (Let's Encrypt) to a custom-domain Github Pages web site? I've not found a guide for that until now.

@bobitza2020: Thanks! I like the second and the third one. There are two observations. First, the font is a bit small, so it wouldn't be suitable for favicons and the small logo at the top-left corner of the web site, but I think that will occur with all designs that include the full name. Second, the logo should also be integrated in the software - or not be too different from it if we chose to keep the current logo or only a slight variation of it.

@Graham: Thanks!

I reverted to the original Slimcoin logo and made a slight modification to the start image file - it is by no means a "final version" but at least it should be a little bit less ugly now.

I'm testing the v.0.5 version of the qt wallet on Windows 8.
My slimcoin.conf file is
Code:
addnode=39.128.207.165:11858
addnode=5.105.63.14:50146
addnode=217.65.8.75:58335

addnode=5.9.38.137:41682
addnode=37.187.100.75:41682
After 24 hours of synchronising with network I'm still on "846241 block remaining" mark and it's not going on at least since 22 hours.
The debug.log file reports that it's trying to connect to each of above addnode, but is not able to do so (connection timeout).
I have 1 active connection to Slimcoin network.

Should I give up with this Wallet version, or there is something I can do?

...

A huge buy wall around 250 still Huh Somebody bought some but it looks like but the buy wall is still there.

Pretty high volume though considering small coin, small exchange etc...

Or you mean 'broken' because it's not the top buy order?

@Graham

It seems like the Inscribe feature is not checking if the wallet is locked/unlocked (didn't look in the sources, though) because when I try to do this on a locked wallet on my Mac I get this nice alert:




I tried a regular transaction, sending from one machine to another and everything went smooth after I was asked to unlock the wallet.

I might be wrong, though.

In these cases, sometimes it is better to delete the blockchain files (addr.dat, blkindex.dat, blk0001.dat and the database folder) and sync again.

What I do to avoid to have to sync all again is to make regularly a backup of the mentioned files, so I have a "snapshot" to go back. A few pages ago Graham has published a recent snapshot.

PS: here it is: https://minkiz.co/noodlings/slm/slm-datadir-snapshot.zip

I'm going on testing the Windows Slimcoin Wallet.

I burned a quantity of coins yesterday and let my computer on for the night.
Today when I looked in it there was some new coin minted and a Windows OS message, I suppose, that Slimcoin Wallet was stuck.
I closed the Wallet and tried to relaunch it several times, waiting dozens of minutes as well, but it was stuck on the logo image.
I tried also to use the earlier "stable" version 0.3, with the same result. 
Any suggestion?

I have seen this with fully synched SLM wallets too, just make sure to wait long enough, the blockchain is quite long already.
I believe it is just veryfying the blockchain on disk and that can take a lot of time.
While you only have the splash screen with the logo, check if your cpu and disk are active. Let it hum along as long as there is activity and be patient, say at least ~20-30min depending on your computers speed.

Try to check the debug.log in the coins folder (should be at the same place where the wallet.dat and other files are, I think Graham mentionned the locations on windows in an earlier post) it should report some progress.

What does it mean decayed coins? It's a bad thing? I already have them, but no SLM was generated yet.

Nice to hear!
As far as I understand it, decayed coins are burnt coins that will no longer be eligible for PoB minting, in fact these seem truely burnt. Still as far as my understanding goes, the total burnt amount - the decayed amount is the amount of coins that is currently actively trying to mint a PoB block.

Please correct me if I am wrong with my assumptions.
What I personally wonder is, if it makes a difference if I burn 10x100 coins in i.e. 10 subsequent blocks or 1000 in one single block ?

When I click the link that you provided, I sometimes get an error message that reads, "The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later."

...

As for the syncing, after 6 days, it seems to have stopped at 66%.  It had been making steady progress at 10% per day.   I'm crossing my fingers that it's just taking a break and will eventually resume.    

Try (literally, i,e stop and restart the app) “turning it off and on again”. I had to do that with the OS X client.

Apologies for the minkiz failure, good ole' BSD: MemoryError: (12, 'Cannot allocate memory -- BDB2055 Lock table is out of available lock entries'), I need to turn the webserver off'n'on again (after first navigating to the directory containing the db files and incanting a 5th-level Unix wizard's spell of “BDB Giddyap”, i.e. db53_recover -h . (not forgetting the “.”) --- which I have now done and minkiz is up'n'running again and (having tested the link) should now deliver a snapshot in reasonably short order:

https://minkiz.co/noodlings/slm/slm-datadir-snapshot.zip

However, given that you're well advanced in a “proper” sync from the network, you may wish to let the OS X client continue to synch from the network --- fwiw I would consider that a useful “external” test and would compensate you accordingly with a small shower of SLM (and partly as a quid pro quo for wasting your time by pointing you to a non-functioning service).


Hi Graham,

Good news!  Wednesday Slimcoin completed loading the blockchain.  I was able to restart the process by closing down the wallet and restarting it. I did this once every day and it seemed to help it along. So I guess we can say the blockchain upload works on OS wallet, but you have to give it at least a week.  

No worries about the blockchain back-up being unavailable, as it meant we were able to test it the upload from start to finish. Thank you for your generous offer, but instead please accept from me this smallest of donations to the success of this noble project.

As far as I understand it, decayed coins are burnt coins that will no longer be eligible for PoB minting, in fact these seem truely burnt. Still as far as my understanding goes, the total burnt amount - the decayed amount is the amount of coins that is currently actively trying to mint a PoB block.

Exactly, that's how it works. The reason that coins "decay" is because otherwise early adopters from 2014/15 would be still minting with their original burnt coins. They could dominate the "burning" process.

I have prepared a (hopefully) simple explanation of Proof of burn here:

http://slimco.in/proof-of-burn-eli5/

and a small guide:

For the original concept (I'm not a "dev" only an user, so my guides may contain errors), the whole formula is explained in the whitepaper:

What I personally wonder is, if it makes a difference if I burn 10x100 coins in i.e. 10 subsequent blocks or 1000 in one single block ?

The difference is minimal, if you burn 10x100 coins the first coins you burnt will start to decay, but as they decay very slowly you wouldn't note the difference  - that's how I understand it.
