Am just bumping this thread, to keep it alive!

We need it to stay alive.

Do you know whats happened to dvc countdown? It seems to be an error:(

The dvc countdown is handled by Hunterbunter who is, normally, pretty responsive to pms on coinzen.com.

- Nova

I see that it has been fixed. So all good. Now I can keep track of the round and how long is left and the amount of shares that there are

Hi All, I think we've had enough time to await objections regarding the duty pay change, so I'm going to implement this now, for round 50:

Quote
My proposal for admin pay is that each admin task in the HR table can have up to four duties, each worth 1 share per round. Each duty is specific and must be unique from the others, but related to the title. As an example, the duties I listed for the HR admin above can be considered four separate jobs, so novacadian would receive 4 shares for that duty under the new payment scheme.

If this is generally acceptable to everyone, we will implement it this round, and will last at least until the division implementation, where we revisit it and either continue or fall back to the original model. If you have anything to say about it, now's the time.

The ongoing_50.csv will match the HR page at http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=devcoin_human_resources, and the number of shares awarded to each admin role will be based on the number of unique duties. The changes should be reflected on dvccountdown within a day or two, and a few people will see a minor pay rise. If anyone notices any discrepancies please let me or novacadian know.

Thanks,
HB

Hi All,

So it seems that someone has purchased the coinzen.org domain from under us, and is currently squatting with the intention to put it up for auction.

Considering the lackluster return on investment the forum generated, I suggest we open a discussion towards rebranding coinzen. Shattienator has one a platform (ie hosting) almost ready to go, so all we need to do is figure out a new name, and what kind of people it should attract.

To start off discussion, a conversation I had with devcoiners some time ago (weisoq + others) went along the lines of changing focus from altcoins, which no one seemed to care about, to open source in general. In line with this, and to stay true to our mission, I think it would be good to start attracting people from the general open source community, including creative commons (sound and image/video), and introduce crypto-currencies to them with devcoins. In other words, make it an open source and creative commons focused forum first, and a devcoin forum as an integral part of that.

I don't really know how practical the creative commons ones would be, but I've not found something that marries these together, so there might be worth considering. If anyone knows about any, please point them out.

Also, if you can think of any good names, throw them out there and we can see what sticks (and what we can get the domain name for). New gTLDs are taking off at the moment, so we're not restricted to .com any more for global appeal. Let your thoughts be known!

I greatly support shifting our forum focus to open source and creative commons and then having the board as a home for our dvc discussions.  Although the main focus would be open source and creative commons, there is nothing preventing sections being created for cryptocurrencies as well as for the Devtome and our other areas of DVC such as bounties, etc.

If our focus will be geared toward open source developers, then our forum name should reflect that as well.  Maybe something along the lines of "Developer's Den"  "Creative Compendium"  just spit balling...lol.

Since the coinzen forum is going to be switching soon, I will use this thread to post bounty proposals:

I'd like to propose a bounty for 240 shares, for sidhujag to update the devcoin client (https://github.com/sidhujag/devcoin-wallet) and devcoin android wallet (https://github.com/sidhujag/devcoin-android) from its current version, 8.5.1, to the newest bitcoin core, 0.11.0.

Notable changes per release:
0.9.0: https://bitcoin.org/en/release/v0.9.0 - windows 64 bit installer, autotools build system, bitcoin-cli changes
0.10.0: https://bitcoin.org/en/release/v0.10.0 - Faster synchronization, Transaction fee changes, RPC access control changes, REST interface, improved signing security, watch-only wallet support, and more
0.11.0: https://bitcoin.org/en/release/v0.11.0 - Block file pruning, memory usage optimization, improved fee estimation, improved privacy

If there are no objections, this will go into effect in about a week.

I totally support the move and change of forum that is hopefully going to take place. If it's going to be open source and creative commons. And I believe Papacrusher is correct with the idea of still having altcurrency.

I'm not that good with naming but I would say opensourcedvc.com or creativedevelopers.com or dvctalk.com

This could be a blessing in disguise.  It would be nice to promote our roots while supporting Devtome and the other open source and creative common art forms which have been discussed on the old forum. It will, also, be nice to have a fresh canvas for our new Coinzen Administrator, whose title will need changing. Smiley

My recommendation would be to use with networksolutions. They have a feature that anyone can come along and pay up the subscription for the domain. This would be very handy for us. Just take the case of coinzen.org. Someone from the community that may have noticed it about to expire could have paid the subscription and then worked it out later with the administration.

Sometimes the cost of a domain is not the most important aspect of who to go with.

Maybe not .com, but .org? Org sounds much better for open source idea.

P.S. There are lot of "Creative Developers" sites, FB groups etc.

I agree org is better, but there's usually no harm in getting both and having .com forward to .org.

Could you link some examples of those groups?

Recommend you don't post domain name suggestions publicly for obvious reasons. Maybe ask for folks to check availability then pm suggestions for available domains.

Regarding spam, would it take too much time to just verify new accounts manually? How many legitimate new accounts can you get daily? Just send a form letter email to all new accounts a couple times a day, personal responses with a legitimate reason for wanting to post get enabled, the others get discarded. The job might even be entertaining, and a nice way to meet new members of your community.

This is a good point, just send domain name ideas in a pm to me. I didn't think it was a big deal since there are a ton of new gtlds coming out, it doesn't have to be .com or .org any more, but it might be easier to select the best of the bunch and put get the admin list to decide it.

I'm not sure about this, Shattienator might know more about how possible/easy this is, although I do know spam accounts were a huge problem on coinzen.

Spam filters should be adjusted quite often.
But in any case it is not problem to manually verify about hundred accounts a day. Spam accounts usually have rubbish emails of very-very detailed description. Very few real users provide full description including full name, location, birthday, several hobbies and lot lot more - all at once Smiley
Mainly all spam accounts can be identified almost immediatelly.

I've not been following very closely, and just visited coinzen for the first time in a long time, but see it's down. Nothing at .com or .org. Just read some history and don't see anything about it. Sorry if this is common knowledge, but what happened to the forum?

Basically someone else owns coinzen domain and we can't really get it back as they want to sell it off. Therefore we are looking to get a new domain which then everything will start from fresh.

I would prefer .co domain instead. It can be a appreviation for community, cooperation or just coin. It's the best in my opinion.

Since the coinzen forum is going to be switching soon, I will use this thread to post bounty proposals:

Yes, saw that Nova, but I guess my question was more along the lines of how that could have happened because hijacking a domain is not easy these days, and registrars usually give ample warning to pay the small renewal fee before allowing a registered domain to be resold.

Anyway...

Why not just use a sub domain of devcoin.org like forum.devcoin.org?

Sorry to hijack the current discussion.  With coinzen down, this seems to be my only hope. First, my apologies for the length of this post. I figure it might avoid problems to have all the details of my issue.

My Devtome username is bomac (not misterbomac)

I recently had a computer crash that had my dvc wallet, leading to 2 problems.

1) I needed to get a new wallet and change my tip address or else my dvc would go into oblivion

2) I couldn't get into my account to change my address or post articles, because my browser was remembering my password and I had only recorded in to a file in the crashed computer.

However... I had also discovered another problem, not related to the laptop crash:  I had not been getting coins for 2 rounds. 

I posted on coinzen where Novacadian was the first to be very helpful, leading me to get back into my account, (thanks to admin Dinkleberg), where I changed my tip address on the invoice page to my new wallet.

Admin Flan discovered the issue with the dvc payments. I had evidently deleted some syntax on my invoice page while adding an article listing. He addressed that and soon I was showing a 49 word count for round 50. 

I had 70 K + words in uncredited articles, and Flan told me I'd get the balance credited to round 51. I wondered why it was 49 wordcount, rather than 50. I thought maybe, for some reason I had lost out on the balance. To check that, I added a 2K+ article, several days before round 50 submission deadline was up, but it stayed a 49.

The new issue:

While fighting off sleep one night, I checked my wordcount and saw it was at 0, instead of 49.  I messaged Flan via coinzen, and promptly forgot about this new issue, due to sleep deprivation, I'm sure.  When I awoke, I was thinking the only issue was why 49 rather than 50, and would I get the other 25K in round 51. 

Flan messaging me, but I wasn't getting his messages, not looking for or expecting them and not checking my email either.  After the submission deadline for round 50, I was in my email inbox and saw the messages from Flan.

He was asking if there was anyway I could get my old wallet working. He wasn't sure, but he thought the problem had to do with the change of tip address.  Now that coinzen is down, I'm not able to contact Flan.  I messaged him here, but 3 days later, today, I see that he's not active here.

I can not get the old wallet back. The best computer guy I've ever known tried to see if he could salvage anything from my hard drive, but it's 100% inaccessible.

What can be done?

Thanks so much!
