Hmm... I guess I was too slow:
"PAYMENT TIMED OUT! We didn't receive a payment from you. Try again."
I think it only scans for a couple of minutes.
I copied the generated BTC address, but forgot the amount by the time Bitcoin launched, so sent you 1.11 (eleven is my favorite number) bitcoins.
Leave it up to you to break things, Gavin.
I think the waiting page should show the address and amount. Yeah, if you don't send the amount it is looking for I think it ends up in "lost and found".
Now I didn't get whatever it was I paid for.
Quick! Call the FBI! j/k
Send me an address and I can refund.
1. MyBitcoin should get rid of the CAPTCHA for most users (do the Google thing, and only show the CAPTCHA if it detects potential abuse) (oh, you didn't know Google search does that? Yup, they do, if you do enough weird-looking searches quickly enough you'll get a CAPTCHA...)
Oh, I'm an avid Tor user. I've seen google's captcha. mybitcoin also has Tor functionality. Maybe they should only switch on the captcha when they detect Tor or something.
2. Bitcoin needs a 'refundtransaction' feature, to get rid of the scary "Do not ever reuse a temporary payment address or your Bitcoins may get lost" warning. Sending to an old address should just do an immediate refund.
I was thinking the exact same thing last night. There is no easy way to handle refunds.
3. I want to be able to put the payment address into MyBitcoin and see the status of my payment.
I don't understand.
4. Gotta get rid of the "memorize the amount and then copy and paste to Bitcoin" (need a bitcoin-payment-request MIME type, in my humble opinion).
5. Gotta improve Bitcoin startup speed; at the very least, make the UI come up quickly while it re-verifies the block chain (I think that's what it is doing...).
Yeah, I never turn mine off and I use the console version so it doesn't bug me at all. The majority of users will be Windows UI users, so yeah this needs to be addressed.
Thanks for your input.
