Hi all, I am happy to report that I have finished the devcoin.org site redesign:

http://devcoin.org/

Thanks to Weisoq for his wiki page and whoever created the Devcoin press release that went out a couple of weeks ago - really saved me a lot of time compiling the content.

Let me know what you guys think - I will be sticking around as the new Devcoin web guy so I can certainly make edits and additions going forward.

I like the new website so much.
I would like to make a german translation for this site. (and continue to update the translation as the website grows)

Where can I sign up for that?

Can I do this as my first job earning dvc?

Please explain how I should proceed.

I am sure a german translation will help
a) rank the site better within google
b) bring devcoin to the german speaking people of germany, austria and swiss. (all big fans of cryptocoins and opensource)

Here the first page as a test translation into german. It has some errors, I just wanted to show a first impression.
It would be great to have country flags at the bottom of the site.

It has some problems with the upper menu buttons, since german needs a little more longer words there, that's what made the layout burst.

An issue is that devtome is only in English, so writers whose English is not good enough can not earn devcoins. I don't think a German translation is worth doing now. In the future, if devcoin value increases, we'll make a hardware site, and then it would be worth making a German translation for that site.

I think it's still worth it. English is required curriculum in Germany and many other countries. I know quite a few people from Germany, Sweden, and Finland who speak better English than native English speakers, and that's just what they learned in school, not because their job required it or anything. English is also one of the lingua franca of Europe, so there's a lot of English discourse on the internet. Countries such as those also have a lot higher percentage of population that is into things like opensource and p2p.

Even though that audience would by default be able to read the page in English, including it in other languages is evidence of openness. Eventually that could lead to Devtome being a multi-lingual project. For now a writing sample could be required to see if their English meets standard.

About a week ago, plagiarism was found in the articles of Notabot (Fheenix on devtome). It was just after the receiver files were made, so it was too late to regenerate the files. I talked with Notabot, and it turned out he hired a writer who was copying text. He was really sorry about it and wanted to quit. It was many articles, about 220,000 words worth, at an average of 300,000 devcoins per share, it's about 66 million devcoins. Notabot then deleted all those articles from devtome. Notabot was also selling his devcoins, so he has few left and full restitution is impossible. I judged that his repentance was sincere, and so I suggested a way to atone, following in spirit:
http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=conditional_forgiveness

Notabot would stop selling his devcoins, and send all but 5 million back to people at the end of December, and then send all but 5 million back at the end of the round 30 payment at the end of January. For a year, round 31 to round 42 inclusive, a third of his earnings would be sent back.

This might seem like an easy way off, because this will not pay back all the devcoins. However, it is much harder and more expensive than simply quitting.

I think this a reasonable atonement, however if a majority of admins don't want this then it's off.

If you think him sincere, I will stand by your judgement.

I will also dutifuly accept a chunk of DVC from his pittance that might be due to me as a member of 'the people': 1Nm4yZhSApzkitY1aNjwqdmu136eYKc9RQ

"Back to people" sounds potentially complex or difficult.

It also reminds me of chats last night in which after explaining that devtome is intended to cause devcoins to have value by using its ad revenue to buy devcoins I did not know what it planned to actually do with the devcoins it bought.

Maybe whatever devtome plans to do with the devcoins it buys with its ad revenue it could also do with windfall devcoins such as ones being returned by people who "overdrew" like in this case...

Regardless, what the heck is the plan as to what to do with bought devcoins once devtome ad revenue exists and it used to buy devcoins?

Also, how will it do the buying? Blind dumping of the fiat, or smart trading?

Maybe it should buy shares in a smart trading bot or something.

Which brings me to hey how about a bounty for a tool one can use to say "place orders on each and every satoshi of price if possible, if not as many satoshis of price as possible, evenly spread starting at this low price going up to this high price using this many coins" ?

Basically I am spending 16+ hour days manually typing in on Vircurex offers at every satoshi of price, not just on devcoins (I already did them long ago) but now also on IXCoins and I0Coins and hey what the heck even on DOGE. In general I think it would be beneficial if all coins had offers at all possible prices, no empty satoshis of price inbetween.

I looked in Virturex FAQ for frequently asked questions about their API but didn't even see "do you even have an API" listed there.

But I think they do have one even if not active right now as I seem to recall having seen an announcement once upon  time that they were disabling the API temporarily to fix something or something like that.

In general whichever exchange one ends up using, a tool for that exchange would be useful for doing this, as a lot of the price volatility on all exchanges on all coins is simple lazienss of people just posting one offer instead of spreading their offer across every possible price to ensure no gaps thus to smooth out changes in prices.

I think its still a good idea to have german translations but maybe not for an admin position...right now any coverage is good coverage just offer it for fewer shares as a bounty!

He prob single handedly stopped devcoin from rising this time and he sold off hos dvc for profit what does he care now?

5 more dvc let him sell at market I will buy it! The real problem is how do we prevent this? Why not go ahead with a big reduction in max shares and givimg more to developers like myself who actually make a difference!!!

I wrote to Vircurex about the idea of a FLOOD FILL (of orders) capability:

Quote
It is taking me 16+ hour days of just typing in orders all day just to try to smooth out the order-books so they don't have huge gaps been "walls" but instead have offers at every posible price.

Could you create a "flood fill" mode of some kind, so I can basically say "divide up this many coins between as many prices as possible starting at this price and continuing through this price"?

Or maybe just autofill so when I say I want to buy or sell X coins at price Y the autofill will automatically fill the whole interval (if possible) between the price above that (if one exists) and the price below that (or the lowest on that side of the orderbook)?

This would save me many many many more days of 16+ hours of mindlessly typing orders trying to smooth out your order-books...

Heck maybe you could instead simply use your own fee-earned float coins to autofill every time anyone makes any order, or something, so all order books having all prices represented all the time would be a feature of your exchange without any user needing to use their own coins to provide the offers inbetween (the flood-fill of orders).

I'm running a permanent DVC node at 192.241.155.73. I'd like it to be a seed node.

The people developing the shiny new daemon and client need to add it into whatever code they are using for seed nodes.

I am editting my old-devcoin-git and old-devcoin-qt-git to add a seventh name it will look up, dvcstable07.dvcnode.org, I do not know what their code does, whether it checks the dvcstable nodes on the dvcnode.org domain or not. Your IP address has been added to the dvcnodes.org DNS as dvcstable07.

Also who-ever controls the DNS for devtome.com needs to add it into their own dvcnode## hostnames in their DNS, my code so far only looks for dvcnode01 through dvcnode05 on that domain as I have seen no notification that they have added any more nodes than the five. (In fact when first I coded the code to look for five of them we did not even have have at the time, I just wanted the code to have a couple of spare lookups we could plug IP addressed into in the DNS later.)

I think this sounds fair - especially as everyone receives DVC back. How will the coins be sent back? Will they be sent in proportion to how many shares everyone has earned that round? Or will they be sent, divided equally among everyone's DVC addresses on the receiver files?

Actually I do care very much. Unthinkingbits proposal for Admins to consider is that the distribution of devcoins coming to my address be sent to him, and redistributed by him based upon contribution. Unthinkingbit can explain this better but there is a plan in place.

Provisionally, I'm going to modify payment.py, which already calculates how much everyone was paid, to total up to whatever Notabot sends. Then I'll manually send that out. For the one third payment, I was originally going to add it to the advertising payment, but after thinking about it, the easiest way would be to subtract that from Notabot's shares, then all the other shares will be worth that much more.

Thanks for the node Wolf, I've added you to the bounty file at:
https://raw.github.com/Unthinkingbit/charity/master/bounty_31.csv

You will get 2/5 of a share as long as you maintain the node.

Y not create more bounties the new wallet needs testing? Any immediate work? The new pr work im doing is going to be good shit I suggest it be worth more than 12 shares its going
to wider audience and I will adhere to higher standards ( up to quality admins to judge before release)

Regardless, what the heck is the plan as to what to do with bought devcoins once devtome ad revenue exists and it used to buy devcoins?

The ad devcoins are sent in proportion to the page views times the rating. It's in the "Advertising Portion" portion of a recent devtome file, like:
https://raw.github.com/Unthinkingbit/charity/master/devtome_30.csv

The amount of money is small, probably around 40 $/month lately, and it takes a while to do the multisend, so I'm going to ask Psybits and K1773R to only send it every two months, or maybe every three months, until revenue gets up to 1,000 $/month.

Quote
Also, how will it do the buying? Blind dumping of the fiat, or smart trading?

Maybe it should buy shares in a smart trading bot or something.

I don't know, Psybits converts the bitcoins to devcoins.

Quote
Which brings me to hey how about a bounty for a tool one can use to say "place orders on each and every satoshi of price if possible, if not as many satoshis of price as possible, evenly spread starting at this low price going up to this high price using this many coins" ?

-MarkM-

I agree that it would be great to place a spread of orders. If someone finds an API call that does this, or finds a bot that already can do this I suggest 4 shares. If it turns out you need to modify or develop a bot to do this, 24 shares for coding. Any objections, or should something be changed?

For the one third payment, I was originally going to add it to the advertising payment, but after thinking about it, the easiest way would be to subtract that from Notabot's shares, then all the other shares will be worth that much more.


Y not create more bounties the new wallet needs testing? Any immediate work? The new pr work im doing is going to be good shit I suggest it be worth more than 12 shares its going
to wider audience and I will adhere to higher standards ( up to quality admins to judge before release)

As we already agreed it will be one marketing share per article you write - the main expense is actually in distributing any PR we get out there.
