Good though bounties are, once the amounts get high I think you'd be better off with traditional contracting. The problem with bounties is you can't know who else is working on it. If two parties both spend significant time on the same bounty and one gets in a day before the other, the latter loses everything. Especially problematic if the both implementations are objectively complete but the latter is subjectively a lot better.

This "winner takes all" proposition makes bounties much less attractive to work on than a good old fashioned tender-and-contract.

Replied via PM. Added Indonesian template.

Point taken, I'll try and coordinate it so two people are not working on claiming the same bounty. For the Android App redesign, which is much more involved, one person will be chosen and provided with a design brief / project specification. If nobody is interested I will probably post the job on elance or something.

Okay - I'm working through the Simplified Chinese template now. Does the order of strings in the JSON file matter? I find the structure of the strings different from the original language template.

Would you want a traditional Chinese version? Some Hong Kong and Taiwan would feel irritated if they find a Simplified Chinese (they call it "broken Chinese") version but not a Traditional Chinese version.

Of course, it is simple to convert a simplified version to a traditional one, so I don't think I'm eligible for claiming a bounty for this. But as said, I strongly recommend you to offer a traditional version if you are going to offer a simplified one.

Help is needed to improve blockchain.info. I am going to be using this thread to offer bounties for those interested in contributing. Please post if you are working on any of the tasks below.

Bugs related to online wallet at blockchain.info?

Any bugs.

Would you want a traditional Chinese version? Some Hong Kong and Taiwan would feel irritated if they find a Simplified Chinese (they call it "broken Chinese") version but not a Traditional Chinese version.

If anyone would like to volunteer to do Traditional I will add it however for the moment as I am happy with it at least being semi readable.

Regarding partial translations, it might be difficult to resolve which string are translated and which have been omitted and might be easier to start from scratch. Or I need to make a better tool to keep track of this.

This "winner takes all" proposition makes bounties much less attractive to work on than a good old fashioned tender-and-contract.

How would you recommend it be done? I've often wondered how best to go about it if the developer wishes to remain anonymous or semi-anonymous. I once offered 15 BTC for a Blockchain transaction parser to track Silk Road transactions and had two developers each ask for exclusivity and gave them each a week to work on it in sequence and neither delivered. Should we instead encourage people to post as they code with how far along they are or do the contract method as you mentioned which requires them to show a portfolio?

I've solved the "Rounding bug in the iPhone app".

You can see my Github pull request here (including details and my BTC address): https://github.com/blockchain/My-Wallet-iPhone/pull/5

There was basically a discrepancy in the data types between the front-end and the back-end. The Javascript backend handled full precision properly, but the front-end did not. BTC amounts were going through a couple of conversions and losing precision.

My BTC address for the bounty is: 1FT7eT3S1ZnekDrbd3zVmS9WFdypnEeFqA

+1. It's at like line 1400~ for Simplified Chinese though, so I'll need some time to work to there yet...

PS: The string arrangements do not matter, right? The auto_(language).json and the original English JSON file are not arranged similarly in structure.

Yep - I've been having to CTRL-F every new 'category' I'm presented with, and that's adding a lot of trouble.

By the way, can I just simply edit everything in the auto_(language).json, and replace the (language).json with the results afterwards? It seems that almost every line has a minor mistake here...
