Using the builtin qt miner set generate=true will do this hopefully? With only one node connected it will be easier to identify issue..

In the QT client we deliberately disabled mining because it caused crashes, something in the QT was not thread-safe it seemed but we did not know enough about QT's threading and such to even figure out what exactly was happening. Since CPU mining was already pretty much obsolete (I thought that recent bitcoin code doesn't even have generate=1 anymore itself?) we just turned off the ability to set generate true figuring people who want to mine would in any case be using the daemon not the GUI.

-MarkM-


The old client was using wxWidgets maybe thats why it was crashing.. I just needed it to test that I can create blocks on a network and broadcast them.  

On the diff algorithm it seems to be wasted cycles to me.. im sure there is a better algo using a shorter local proxima to achieve close resultd without sacrificing so many cpu cycles.

I just signed up some more writers. If I missed you, please feel free to message me again. Any requests sent to me today will get processed tomorrow.

Happy writing, everyone Smiley

Do we have some Devtome admins whose job is specifically to help users with technical support issues, or even talk them through things like how to properly format articles, etc.?

I occasionally get asked questions along those lines, and I'm happy to help, but I know my responses aren't in the most timely fashion. It would seem to me that an admin (more than one for sure!) who already spends a lot of time on the forum, reading messages, and so forth, might be better suited to handle new user support requests.

If this is already covered, please post who the admins are so that I can forward on any such requests to them.

Edit: Actually, is there a Devtome page with an updated list of admins and what each one does along with their forum ID? If so, please post this too and let's add it to the writer's guide section. If not, I'll volunteer to write it
I think it's just something all admins do? I get quite a few queries from more than one forum. I'm also cool with helping but that's on top of devtome building up to 30-60 mins per day categorising/filing and article issues. This is way too much and I can't keep doing it, so would appreciate one or more extra admins.

Don't think there's a devtome page, but the account file lists admins.

bit-fxtrader: It rolls, so if your writings weren't included in last round the current one becomes your first with a 50k limit. But the limit is a (pre-rating adjusted) payout limit, not word limit. You can write as much you like, the word rolls carry forward.

I offer my assistance also. It would require the article you mention to help clarify the functions/roles of the different admins, imo.

I think it would be a good idea to have specific admins for writer support if they don't already exist. An alternative would be to have people sign up for certain times where they would be "on call" to handle any support requests as soon as possible.

What is the role of the earnings admin, exactly? I'm wondering if some of this isn't covered by those admins. I'm referring to support with people figuring out the proper syntax, how to set up their invoice page, wanting someone to have a look-see at one of their articles to make sure it's all good, etc.

Actual technical support, as in something is broken, is actually beyond my capability.

weisoq, did the amount of allowed writing shares per round go down to 50? When did this happen?

Apologies for the double post. I will be happy to write this article as long as it hasn't already been written and as long as I can contact all the admins to get their feedback on what they do.  Perhaps I could ask everyone to send me a job description and then compile that and invoice it under "collated." How does that sound?

EDIT: or better yet, create the page with a headline for each admin and ask them to complete their job description, then I rearrange order to have a logical flow. And I don't necessarily need to invoice the page at all since it would be a total community effort.

Thoughts?

If they are using Windows, ask them to contact K1773R, if they're using Linux, ask them to contact Emfox.

There's no admin for that, there's a style section:

Guess there's a lot of cross coverage for everybody. For example because I have to at least skim read articles to categorise and file I also forward dodgy or problem issues to article admins. If writers are making things harder by not listing on front page I at least ask them to do so. And if writers or anyone else asks for help I help them.

I don't have a problem with any of that, only the time it takes and then when efforts are not reciprocated. I'm not sure what an earnings admin does.

50 - from round 31: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?&topic=233997.msg4053035#msg4053035
You didn't know? I even quoted your previously discussed article. It doesn't make much practical difference anyway because it was an effort (mostly by me to be honest) to at least keep payments in line with 80 when bounded multipliers were incorporated. So it means good writers can still get max 75 (50 * 1.5), other writers less.

It's really not needed. General questions are easy enough to answer. The technical questions go to K1773R and Emfox. In fact, this is what they're being paid to do as part of their jobs on a round-by-round basis.

Yea I dont really see them contributing to people asking questions, especially ont he forum, who really has the time to look up a user to send a private message when it is way easier to simply post on a thread?

I haven't seen either of them answer questions, its usually one of us answering people.

it would be wise for devcoin developers to apply these patches in a build:

* https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/3651
* https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/3654

this will protect devcoin users from problems if the transaction malleability griefers turn their attention to altcoins.

The round 32 receiver files have been uploaded to:
http://galaxies.mygamesonline.org/receiver_32.csv
http://devcoinpool.btc-music.com/receiver/receiver_32.csv
http://devcoinblockexplorer.info/receiver/receiver_32.csv
http://devtome.com/files/receiver_32.csv
http://devcoin.darkgamex.ch/receiver_32.csv
http://d.evco.in/receiver/receiver_32.csv
http://show-me-the-devcoin.info/devtome/receiver_32.csv
http://coinfaucets.tk/receiver_32.csv
http://creativecurrencies.cu.cc/wp-content/uploads/receiver_32.csv

The account file is at:
http://galaxies.mygamesonline.org/account_32.csv

There were 1587 original receiver lines, so the average number of devcoins per share is 180,000,000 dvc / 1587 = 113,422 dvc. Administrator pay is 218.0 shares, 13.7 percent of the total. The value at vircurex is 0.9 mcbtc/dvc, which works out to 0.102 btc. This times the bitstamp price of 662$ gives a share price of 68$.

People on that list will start getting those coins in round 32, starting at block 128,000. The procedure for generating the receiver files is at:
http://devtome.com/doku.php?id=devcoin#generating_the_files

The next bounties will go into round 33:

I want to prove that the current 0.8.5 build can work, and then wait for 0.9.0 to come out to merge in.

Noone can steal coins, it just makes it seem like the coins aren't there, but a rescan should fix that.

Regardless the issue doesn't affect code base 0.8.5 its 0.8.6 where users are reporting seeing the issue.

a rescan does not fix the issue. the issue affects all bitcoin versions. you are right that it doesn't result in stealing coins. it does result in incorrect balance reports and the inability to spend coins.

I created the first iteration of the auction business plan:

http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=auction_business

please review.

Thanks
Jag

Ooops, the bounty is over, but you posted before the last person posted his plan.

I suggest to extend the bounty once more for Jag here and give him a last 6 shares.  Any objections?

I meant broad sense of rescan if wallet rescan didnt work including blockchain refresh or pvt key importing.

Most devcoin users are techies and not dumb enough to cry the sky is falling..

That said I understand the importance and I think it should be merged in but the right place for it would be we merge in 0.9 unless you can provide a more compelling justification on why it cant wait fir 0.8.5 to be even finalized.
