What is the reason for starting a new thread? I've lost track... I think this is the 3rd of 4th thread for the coin now? I see this new thread is moderated, but there wasn't much need to moderate it really.

I forgot to mark the last topic as self-moderated when I created it. Unfortunately, topics cannot be converted to self-moderated topics after creation.
We have had an excessive amount of "trolling" to incite emotional responses and disrupt constructive conversations. A self-moderated topic is neccessary so such posts can be deleted from now on.

Waiting for your thoughts about this idea.

This is a very interesting point. I will have to get a cup of tea and think an hour or two about this.
I hope we can get Dazza to brainstorm with us on this one, because he originally proposed to keep the POS rewards as minimal as possible when we were discussing this question back then.

I don't think thats the way to go, adding 20% to the costs for computation is huge in itself, let alone in the context where non-profit alogs would be competing with crypto mining. I don't know whether the miners will be able to choose the packets they work on or their reward will be generalized, but in any case I think it would be better to have inflation to make people stake more, or some kind of masternode system where you reward people for staking with something other than elastic (perhaps they get a little free computation on their project or something). I don't really know how the whole economic part of the elastic is planned out, so perhaps that should be made celar before we brainstorm on its specific aspects. Will the miners be able to pick projects to mine on, will the rewards be separate or not? If they are separate, miners will go for more profitable ones, if not the price of computation will be higher.

When going to http://elastic.pro/donations the donation address is smugged out with a red tag and message.Based on my ip address i dont agree to the terms?  Am i doing something wrong.. The donation address wont show on the screen.

If i use a proxy i can see the address and tried that but get a error from my counterparty wallet:

Sorry, we got an error when trying to do the requested action: 'JSON-RPC Error:
Type: Server error

Code: -32000

Message: Non-hexadecimal digit found

' (API method: create_send).

I think that we need a website that goes beyond what we have now. So I have created a Wordpress based website on http://elastic-project.org/. It's not completely finished so see it as a beta version. It contains a knowledge base which I planned to contain all knowledge that has been collected so far. That includes technical details, background infos, guides how to recover private keys from different online wallets, later also tutorials how to install or compile the client for differnt platforms, and many more. The lack of information is what I criticize most on the current website.

So my question now is: Who would volunteer or at least help me writing these articles?

Jonas

PS: I left out the logo on purpose because I have read about a possible logo contest. Will it take place?

Good work, this looks amazing! I can write about some technical details (mini-blockchains, pos, some attacks).
I would do it on a low-priority level though as I am working heavily on the client at the moment.

I have not yet taken a deeper look into it, but is it possible to use the wiki markup language for the articles?

Afaik it's not possible to use WML, but there is a nice editor which allows you to easily write and edit your articles. HTML is also fine if you need something beyond the basic features.

I have added a logo to http://elastic-project.org, but I am not very happy with it. It's basically a twitter knockoff. Maybe some has the time to do something better, maybe something entirely in white so we keep the design flat.

I could not donate using my counterparty wallet also and I was getting the same error as you.

I had to use my bitcoin-qt wallet (which I can access the private keys from).

Hello World!

I have continued working on the new website at http://elastic-project.org/. I have added a short explanation of the general idea of the Elastic Project. Could you please check if I have explained everything correctly? Any changes are welcome.

Because I've been told by several individuals you were deleting any of their posts that question your initiative and incentives here and because the community gave a piece of their mind by not pledging also...is that enough?

First of all, I do not delete anything as it's not my thread.
But from what I know, the only posts that were "deliberately" deleted were those from obvious trolls and from "brainiacs" that did not even read through the thread but pretend to know anyone's incentive ... in most cases with self-estimated and emphasized 99.9% accuracy. If those people are said "individuals" that you usually deal with, then I'd strongly recommend to rethink your social circle.

Besides that, asking someone if he has a bad incentive is absolutely absurd. No matter if you ask an honest person of if you ask a shady thief whether he has any bad incentives or not, you will always get the same answer which is "no!". So asking this question in the first place is a total waste of time.

Do not concern yourself about my close circle I assure you that it is more than fine...My tip for you is learn how to handle criticism and consider your way of marketing and PR

Hello World!

I have continued working on the new website. Last night I have modified the forum theme to match the main theme.
If you want you can check it out here: http://forum.elastic-project.org/

The CSS is not 100% perfect, if anyone has time to patch it, feel free. I need a break.

Great, I'd just change the color scheme, there are 16777216 possible colors in RGB and everyone is using twitter blue.

Have you seen the main site already?
http://elastic-project.org/

I must admit, I have even knocked off the logo from twitter. But I already wrote that I hope someone else comes up with something nicer than that.
Regarding the color theme, I am open for any suggestions.

consider your way of marketing and PR

I think nobody here wants any marketing or PR.
This is what I sharply criticize with all these other successful (at least on the surface) coins that are being built at the moment.
Most of them have a wonderful PR, they use dozens of buzz words (internet of things, DAPPs, blah, ...) and they attract many people who are entirely blended. They do everything to lure the last penny out of their users' pockets. Signature campaigns, twitter broadcasts, glossy articles with even glossier faces of the (of course) non-anonymous dev team creating the illusion of "security" ... all this has precedence over the technology itself. No wonder, mostly the tech is just a reinvented wheel (for the 4th or 5th time) ... but the loyal user will ignore that and (thanks to the, I have to admit, very good PR campaigns) jump on the hype train.



I am so happy, that Elastic Project is not this kind of "project".
Here, nobody tries to forcibly convince anyone that this project is the best out there, nobody is wasting time on signature campaigns, nobody needs facebook sockpuppets or any other kind of PR ... I think that anyone who is involved here understands the algorithmic difficulties that this coin is trying to solve and is happy to work on an interesting and challenging piece of open source software.

Unfortunately, in the over-hyped crypto land as we experience it today, not many people are expected to donate towards Elastic Project but if the price otherwise would be to send the science to the background in favor of boring marketing and hype (like in, spending 90% time on the marketing and 10% on the development) then it's just the way it is.

By the way: I have worked for many large projects already. Those who required a project proposal full of buzz words (and no technical profoundness at all) to convince people with little to no knowledge to financially back the project were those with the least charme.
