If anyone is still waiting for Devcoin payouts for the mintpal voting and devtome_writers twitter giveaway, my apologies, the explanation is on the respective threads but I think the problem is fixed and payments will start again in the next couple of hours.

If I cant start up the payments, HunterBunter has generously stepped up and will take over until I can. I will post here if that happens but I sincerely hope once the blockchain downloads we will be back on track.

Thankyou for being patient, if you want to keep voting that would be awesome and hugely generous and trusting of you but I totally understand if you want to hold off until current payouts are sent and confirmed.

I will be paying bonuses out to those who have already voted, as an apology for the hiccup...

I am truly sorry  Huh we were going so well!!

Thanks for the update on this! 21 days is a long voting period but I'll wait it out, :p. Let's see how well I do!

There are a few articles for people to read through, I figured the time frame gives everyone a good chance to read them all. I am thinking this would make a good quarterly award so the next one may have an even longer submission and voting periods...just a heads up Wink

Ohh, adding more of them would be awesome. I found that one to be a fun one to write (and it sparked a lot of thought as well, helping with self-reflection).

Nice site launch - your website is going to get a lot of attention with that 5.4 TH megaminer starting at 1 cent! Wow!

The webpage looks great too.

Are there any bid packages less than $100 though?

That part went ok (kind of) paypal doesnt bring you back, so finding the auction again is a bit of drama, then when I do come back, the package I bought doesn't show anywhere in my account?

Only when I go to an auction, then they are in the right hand side in the bid assistant.

Also, are you getting a lot of traffic? Its timing out a bit, had to try again a couple times to get in.

Yea I saw that it times out too.. were you bidding at the time? Might be pinged or something.. If you were bidding i may have to do a cron job to update the bids instead of updating when you click. Its ok now but it was timing out...

Did you get an email saying you purchased a bid package?

In our account bids section it should update your bids based on what you bought... I probably should display the package you bought too? I assumed the email was enough and to just update your bids and show how many bids you have in your account.

see http://devcoinauctions.com/my-account/payments/ page for your bids.

The lag is something I've noticed as well. Even just trying to do the SEO parts, the site will often "freeze" and keep trying to connect to the server again to make the updates. There are periods where it will be unable to contact the server for 5-10m.

Interesting... its using  a CDN so it shouldn't... anyways Ive upgraded to a VPS server and its faster now. Still initial DNS lookup seems a few hundred MS slow but pages load in 2 seconds now. Try it out guys... see if you have lag issues again.

No I wasnt bidding, I couldnt get your site at all, it was timing out at the domain not the page...site wouldnt load. I tried from the domain (devcoinauctions.com) then from the link in your post. Neither would load so I just kept refreshing.

I think it should show somewhere on there that I purchased x credits and what I purchased them with. The number of credits doesnt seem to differentiate between which credits are from which currency. How do I tell it to only use the devcoin ones when I bid on a devcoin auction? Will it use the cash credits first or will it automatically choose the devcoin ones?

Aahh I see well it uses the lowest value bids first.. if you have dvc bids it will use those if applicable to the auction then ltc then btc.. usd ends up being a btc bid.

The number of bids on bid assistant shows all bids you have for that auction... so if you have only dvc bids it will show 0 on an auction requiring litecoin / bitcoin.

I will add package information to the email, Do you think i should add a history of purchased packages on the user menu? I will need to make a database table for this.

The buy bids page shows you how many of each type of bids you currently have. I didnt want to clutter up the auction page too much so I did work to figure out how many bids you have for the auction you are viewing and just add them all up so that the bid assitant works easier.. More options are not alwayd better for something thatd meant to be easy. But do you think I should show the different types of bids you have on the auction page and maybe bold the one that is currently applying?

Btw I switched from shared to vps hosting.. is it working better? On speed tests its showing more reliable load times of 2 seconds for non logged in pages from start to end.

Non logged in users will load from super cache where the html file is preloaded from cache and it is lightening quick. I cant preload for logged in users because the site becomes more dynamic then..

That sounds like a tidy way to show it clearly.

I added package info to emails for future bid package purchases (which type of bid you bought).

I also added the bid balance information in the my account homepage... and then added a transactions page to show your last transactions.

http://devcoinauctions.com/my-account/transactions/

This will show any changes to your account, be it me manually adjusting your bids, any refunds from auctions that didn't meet reserve, or any bid packages you purchased with info on what type of BID the transaction involved in the Description column.

The old descriptions aren't good... but going forward any new transactions have correct descriptions.

Awesome! I can see what I got and where it came from. Nice.

I still have a coupler questions, maybe they will help someone else too? Sorry, I am trying to get my head around the way it works and I have read the info but I am still a bit vague:

1- I buy credits...I use those credits to bid on an auctions...I win the auction...I pay for the item...do I get the bids I bought back?

And these are just questions I have that might not matter yet because they are additional functions, I just am curious:

2- Can users cash out their credits/claim refund?
3- Can users transfer their credits to another user?

These will help when I create a faq.

There is currently no market for bids except using on auctions. You only get bids back if the reserve wasnt met and an auction ended.

Later with a buy it now feature I may offer to give back bids if they simply want to buy the item at retail price(if you think you wont win the auction and your cost is high)

I'm going to vote that #3 (with transferring credits to others) would be a great idea. This may help increase the number of people buying large packages, since they can then split them up and recoup some of their costs.

I decided to add the buy now feature and offset the cost of the buy now by the amount of bids the user has put in the auction at $0.75 per bid.
