Yep, thanks. ^_^

Additionally I am working on a method in which Bitcoin amounts sent for creating questions and answers can be refunded upon form submission.  However, note that the value of the questions will be reduced to 0 as well and appear lesser than questions and answers that have established Bitcoin funding.

Site looks backwards. If I want to answer a question, I have to pay coins?

I think a funner site would be like google questions used to be. You ask a question, set a bounty, and someone researches it for you, and the question owner selects the best answer or requests additional info.

Admin could help in disputes where the question was answered and the asker is not releasing the coins. Payment by bitcoin upfront.

I even think I've seen a thread along those lines before.

If you pay a small fee you care about your answer and it helps stop spambots.

Protip: Have you seen yahoo answers which costs nothing to answer?

hurr durr yo cwestin is dum

 Cheesy

I think that would be better for more subjective questions specific to the person asking rather than general knowledge. After all only they would know if the answer is any good.

Of course the best answer might not be the most correct. It could be best because its humorous. You can have different categories such as "concise" "humorous" etc...


tldr we dont want spam answers and we want to reward quality by ensuring participants get the lions share of the bitcoins.

There is nothing stopping us having a bounty question section either . The difficulty is judging if an answer is sufficient. If you are an expert in some field you could either upload your qualifications or prove it by successfully answering questions over time ?. An expert might also earn coins by doing private consultations. First you need a way to prove your expertness. Smiley

Nice job Mizery btw Smiley.

If you pm us we can sort issues out for you. I guarantee if you have sent any coins and want them back you will get them back.  Smiley
Post here also if you have a good interaction with the site. It all helps while we test it out.


Its probably a cron job that returns the coins at set time periods. Might have to also wait for confirmations to happen .

There is a known issue with the return funds implementation that I cannot fix at this time.  The issue is in regards to sending the Bitcoins back for those that want their Bitcoins refunded upon submitting a question or answer.  The reason this is happening is because the Bitcoin client cannot afford to send them back as it does not have any funds.

Although users submit funds to the site, it is designed to work with 0 confirmations so as to prevent delay from using the site, something that I have decided was too time consuming and may detract from using the site based on its implementation (temporary come and go Bitcoin addresses instead of more permanent pre-fundable ones).  Because of this and because there aren't Bitcoins available in the client and most importantly because Bitcoin client doesn't consider amounts received with 0 transactions to be part of the available balance, the client produces an error when attempting to send Bitcoins that it doesn't have.

So as to prevent potential misuse of the site in the future as well as to prevent this error from occuring frequently, I think I will be change to requiring 1 confirmation, but only for those that request their funds to be returned.  This will prevent the error of insufficient funds but also create a delay, that should be acceptable for those who want to ask and answer freely for fun rather than those who want to invest in asking for getting answers to their questions or invest in answering to try to answer someone's question (and possibly be rewarded for it by the question asker sending them a reward for answering their question), etc.

Actually, depending on the amount sent, the 1 confirmation may be increased a couple or few more for better reliability of the funds being spent only once.

Update: This has been resolved.

This is a great service!  I provided 1 bitcoin ten minutes ago, answered a question, and I just see that it sent back my bitcoin as requested (with 1 confirmation)!  Seems to have worked correctly for me.

Is the web code open-sourced?

I propose an incentive scheme!

Instead of people risking their bitcoin..they could be compensated like flattar. Like, if you have an account, you fund it up. Then you simply vote the answer you like. At the end of every month, your funding is divided up into shares that goes to people you voted up the most.

Yeah I love flattr. A few of us invaded the flattr forums awhile ago to see if they would integrate bitcoin but we werent successful.

Should be a simple matter of providing a web wallet although Im not sure how you keep track of things youve shared. It would certainly make for a fluid user experience Smiley.

I fixed the issue and the site works for Opera v10.63 build 6450 for linux.

It was a "jquery rounded corners" script issue in which nonrounded corners were set to false value (to preserve the corner as square), which worked for Firefox and possibly other browsers, but wasn't compatible with Opera.  Adjusting the value to declare the corner as having 0 radius (also square) resolved the issue for Opera.

Heh, thanks for reporting it.  It was mentioned in IRC also, and I fixed the issue.  It wasn't anything to worry about actually.  I simply forgot a final else statement near the very end of the script.

<a> so if bitcoin goes to parity, I gotta pay $1 USD to post a witticism, .. and a $1 to reply?
<a> and then if bitcoin goes to $5,  I gotta pay $5 USD to post a witticism, and a $5 to reply?
<b> I assume rates can be adjusted to the current economic situation
<b> atm its 0.01 witcoin/bitcoin to post, upvote, comment
<a> Oh .., I saw the "1 witcoin = 1 bitcoin" and thought it was 1.0 per post.  ok, ...,maybe some message that says "Post for only 0.01 BTC!"
<a> so those new to the site realize that.
<b> yeah

One bitcoin will always equal one witcoin.  The costs in witcoins will fluctuate.  This allows for previously experienced users who have a witcoin balance to preserve their witcoins without noticing or recognizing a loss of value (because one bitcoin will always equal one witcoin).  Also it should prevent the idea of feeling panicked, discomforted or otherwise alarmed that the value in relation to bitcoins of their existing witcoin balance has changed (because one bitcoin will always equal one witcoin).

Since the value of witcoin will always be at parity with bitcoin, then only the costs of each action will change in relation to supply and demand similarly to the cost of everything made available for bitcoins changes value in relation to supply and demand.

o/ I encourage users to assist with this (and other) questions and answers at http://faq.witcoin.com/ so that better written answers and questions can be prepared by whomever and each author of the question and answer can profit or lose accordingly based on the submitted content (e.g. question or answer).

Similarly to my explaining here, you're welcome to ask here or in the IRC channel #witcoin on FreeNode, but it may be useful to prepare the information on the site as well.  Instead of preparing the fa questions on the site myself, I look forward to users frequently asking the questions themselves and maybe also answering as well, but I too will provide answers to questions that are relative to the site that other uses may not be able to answer such as if my answers here or elsewhere are not enough information for them.

My reason for allowing other users to answer instead of myself is because I recognize that I am not as skilled or talented at communicating/explaining things as others, and instead of asking others to assist me with explaining better than I can or did, and then submitting the answer as my own, I allow for individuals to answer for themselves and establish their own profitability or lossability instead of my profitability or lossability.

This is the basic functionality for the site:

There are categories.  Categories are associated with a single user (for now).  At this time I have not prepared implementation allowing users to establish their own categories and I have not worked out 'ownership' or 'rentorship' in relation to categories.  This is something I must further think about.  For now, categories are owned by a single user entity.  At the time of this posting there are three categories witticisms (http://witticisms.witcoin.com/), faq (http://faq.witcoin.com/) and bitcoind (http://bitcoind.witcoin.com/).  There will be more later.  I will explain this further in another post or elsewhere.

There are posts.  Posts are contained within a single category.

There are replies.  Replies are contained within a single post.

There are upvotes.  Upvotes are applied to either a single post or a single reply and therefore contained within the post or reply.

As a user posts content into a category, the cost of the post will be distributed equally to the site and to the category owner.  e.g. if posting costs 0.01 witcoins, which it does at the time of this forum posting, then the site will receive 0.005 witcoins and the category owner (this word is used loosely and may be changed in the future as consideration of 'rentorship' of categories is further considered) of the category will receive 0.005 witcoins.

As a user replies to a post, the cost of the post will be distributed equally to the site and to the category owner.  e.g. if replying costs 0.01 witcoins, which it does at the time of this forum posting, then the site will receive 0.005 witcoins and the category owner (this word is used loosely and may be changed in the future as consideration of 'rentorship' of categories is further considered) of the category will receive 0.005 witcoins.  Note that although the reply is contained within a post that the poster is not included in the profiting from the creation of the reply.  This will be explained or understood more thoroughly later, but in the example case of a poster asking a question and a replier answering, it is strange to distribute a portion of the funds from the cost of posting the answer to the user posting the question.

So, recap:
posting cost is distributed equally to site and to category owner
replying cost is distributed equally to site and to category owner

Next is upvoting: Both posts and replies can be upvoted.  The cost of upvoting is distributed as well.
Upon the first upvote, the cost of upvoting is distributed equally: 33.333% to site, 33.333% to category owner, 33.333% to poster|replier
Upon the second upvote, the cost of upvoting is distributed equally: 25% to site, 25% to category owner, 25% to poster|replier, 25% to first upvoter
Upon the third upvote, the cost of upvoting is distributed equally: 20% to site, 20% to category owner, 20% to poster|replier, 20% to first upvoter, 20% to second upvoter
etc.

You may observe rather noticeably that there is no downvoting.  I haven't fully established understanding as to whether or not downvoting is necessary since if downvoting exists, there will be a cost associated with it similarly to cost of upvoting.  I haven't developed an understanding on how to distribute the cost of downvoting.  I think that if downvoting has a cost that it may discourage downvoting.

I am no longer developing this project as witcoin.

noagendamarket and CryptoXchange will continue establishing witcoin.com and also witcoin.org and witcoin.net commercially.

I shall continue under another name as I think of one.

Recently noagendamarket and I, who have been referenced as co-owners of witcoin, have decided to continue working on witcoin separately.

noagendamarket in affiliation with CryptoXchange will preserve witcoin.com (and CryptoXchange's recently registered witcoin.org and witcoin.net) to reestablish some kind of site possibly with commercial interests.

I am interested to reestablish the witcoin site as I had written and developed it with continued noncommercial interests that, but I will do so under a different name and no longer affiliate with witcoin brand/name.

I would like to know others' thoughts on what seems most appropriate for the witcoin community.

noagendamarket and CryptoXchange want to make use of my code base and affiliated database structure and all sql data of user-generated content and activity to recreate and recreate the site for their own use, whilst I want to reestablish the site as it was under a different name.

We cannot both make use of the data since the affiliated bitcoins cannot be duplicated.

I am uncertain how to proceed as I feel a kind of responsibility for the community behind the site that I made and do not want to make a poor choice of either: preserving the data to move to new site -or- abandoning the data for new ownership to use.

Therefore, any thoughts from anyone in regards to what seems best or reasonable resolution to this concern would be appreciated.



Some responses I received from others:

Quote
Before transferring ownership of witcoin.com, give users a chance to delete their accounts and withdraw their BTC. It doesn't really matter which of you gets the BTC as long as users are able to withdraw from the other site.    Good luck to both of you!

Quote
I think the data and balance should remain at witcoin.com, whoever ends up running it.  If any of you take the software and run it on a different domain, you should not import the witcoin balance (The data can be imported for all I care).

Quote
Users would get confused if their bitcoin balance ends up on a new site. I would say, let noagendamarket and CryptoXchange hold on to the coins indefinitely, so if users come back to witcoin.com after a hiatus they can still easily find their coins.  However, as a returning user in this situation, I'd want to know about the changes that have occured. I'd set it up as a one-time page that pops up when a user returns to witcoin.com, just letting them know the differences between your new site and witcoin.com, with handy links to withdraw coins/effectively use either site. You could also have a button that lets them clear their data if they're not happy with the new ownership.

Quote
The project needs a redesign and some user interface tweaks maybe...  other than that I liked it.

Quote
Too bad you lost the brand, "witcoin" is IMO a great name.    weedcoin, tipcoin, tipbitcoin... or maybe a name without the "coin" in it would be even better.  If you are the guy who developed the original site, my witcoins are with you.

Quote
How many active users on the site in the last week?  If the number is less than 100, you are basically wasting time worrying about it.

Quote
I feel like the bitcoins living in witcoin should be moved along with the spirit of what witcoin was, whichever new project represents it best.  And of course alert and allow users to withdraw their coins before any changes are made.  Otherwise i don't have strong feelings either way.

Quote
The best and most capitalist solution is for you to (internally) bid on the existing data and balances; whoever thinks they're most valuable will buy out the other.

Quote
I posted a response at BitcoinTalk.org. As for my own balance of witcoins, I don't really mind which site retains them. No big deal.  I think the concept of witcoin is great, and with a few tweaks it could become quite popular and successful.

Quote
I can't judge whether your or their plans are more sincere and appropriate, so what about this solution:

On both sites:
- preserve all old data
- hide old users
- hide content created by old users

E-mail all old users with
- one-paragraph descriptions of both sites
- a link to both sites
- link to a form for choosing sites to participate in

On the form, old users can
- keep or destroy their account on your site
- keep or destroy their account on the other site
- send their balance to a Bitcoin account of their choice
- move their balance to the site they chose or either one of the sites if they chose both

Users who don't use the form are made public on your site and removed from the other site, if their user ID is even.  If their user ID is odd, they're made public on the other site and removed from your site.

Quote
in general, i'm in fav of it being less of a business, more of a software platform for content production. biz models are not necessary to grow things bigger i think, but well some people just know those

Quote
Hi, Thanks for the email. I think you should keep the data and keep tryi ng. I never really used the site, haven't had time. I tried to a few weeks ago but I had forgotten my login details. I'm not sure if you remember, but I met you last year on freenode and you told me about bitcoin/witcoin, gave me a bitcoin so I could try it. I'm still interested in the site, I liked your ideas. Could you tell me a little more whenever you get a chance about what's going on with it at the moment? Thanks.

I would prefer to go with your non-commercial version of the site (unsure how the commercial version develops). If that needs a different name, so be it. I think you would be able to raise it to a higher level then what witcoin was, in terms of speed and content. I always found that the donation feature was a strong aspect of the site.  What I think is important is that access to the stored funds needs to be restored asap. It will only damage the name by people who will call it all a scam (see the whole mybitcoin situation).

So what are the outcomes for people who "own" topics under the proposed future plans?

Do people who own topics continue to get a share of future posts in those topics?

If you liked my post, please send me a bitcoin!

That is interesting concern and first importantly depends on if some or all content is preserved at witcoin.com in affiliation with noagendamarket and CryptoXchange or at another site that I am reestablishing under a different name due to lack of domain name ownership.  What are your thoughts?

We cannot both make use of the data since the affiliated bitcoins cannot be duplicated.
I would let the witcoin.com site retain the coins that were deposited there, but allow individual users to request a transfer of their balance from one site to the other until, say, the end of the year. No biggie.

As for the concept of witcoin, I think it can be very successful, but the format isn't quite right yet. I have some specific ideas which I'm keen to discuss when you've decided how you're taking the site forward.

I think this change will be good for Witcoin. It gives it two new chances at success.

I received a private message from CryptoXchange:

Hi Miz,

Could you please remove cryptoxchange from this post please:

That is interesting concern and first importantly depends on if some or all content is preserved at witcoin.com in affiliation with noagendamarket and CryptoXchange or at another site that I am reestablishing under a different name due to lack of domain name ownership.  What are your thoughts?

As this is David's domain, and it is not CryptoXchange that is actually working with this project.

Thank you very much!

Talk to you soon.

[06:36:56] <necrodearia> it is important to decide upon how to handle the data
[06:37:29] <necrodearia> how would you prefer to handle it?
[06:38:35] <necrodearia> I think it would be best that for the data to stick with one site, either witcoin.com or the new site I will reestablish
[06:38:42] <necrodearia> what's your preference?
[06:38:56] <noagendamarket> I think it needs to stick with witcoin
[06:39:02] <necrodearia> okay, that's all I wanted to know
[06:39:08] <necrodearia> thanks ^_^
[06:42:23] <necrodearia> CryptoXchange, o/
[06:42:42] <noagendamarket> Im waiting for the linux guys Smiley
[06:42:52] <noagendamarket> Basically they will clone it
[06:42:59] <noagendamarket> and migrate to a new server
[06:43:16] <noagendamarket> thats what I kknow
[06:43:58] <necrodearia> regarding the code base I have written, how do you want to handle ownership of that as well?  you own all of it?  i own all of it?  split it percentage-wise?
[06:44:09] <necrodearia> currently it is proprietary, not yet released
[06:44:35] <noagendamarket> well we are going to rewrite the whole thing
[06:44:41] <necrodearia> okay
[06:44:50] <noagendamarket> but temporarily we need to migrate it
[06:47:17] <noagendamarket> Is it possible to get witcoin frontend working again temporarily ?
[06:48:32] <necrodearia> I will soon be setting up environment at another site
[06:49:04] <necrodearia> I can link it when I get hosting environment situated
[07:05:35] <noagendamarket> ok

noagendamarket suggested "the linux guys," they "they" will clone it, "we are going to rewrite the whole thing" and "we need to migrate it."

If not people representative of CryptoXchange who noagendamarket had also previously acknowledged and referenced from previous communications, then who are "we?"  Again, I, mizerydearia, am no longer affiliated with "we" in this context and also no longer affiliating with 'witcoin' name.



For those unfamiliar with situation (and in case I didn't mention it in this thread previously), around October 21st noagendamarket had suggested yet again that he could no longer pay for the linode 512 vps hosting the site/project.  noagendamarket had stated such things previously as well in which I had provided him with some bitcoins to compensate for a few months of service.  During and after October 21st I sought asking for others with assistance for helping to fund continued payment for the vps and additionally others offered hosting instead.  I did not accept offers immediately as I wasn't enthusiastic about the limitations or restrictions and also was enthusiastic about sticking with linode if at all possible.

[03:38:29] <noagendamarket> hey
[03:47:28] <necrodearia> I have been looking for alternate hosting for witcoin.  I was wondering what your thoughts are on the matter.
[04:18:40] <noagendamarket> what are the options ?
[04:21:52] <necrodearia> I'm not entirely certain yet.  A kind of option is I could ask my father for help with payment, but, I was wondering about your thoughts on how I should proceed in finding alternate hosting.  Would you liek me to consult with you about options before I figure out how to proceed?
[04:22:30] <noagendamarket> I dont have any preferences
[04:23:07] <necrodearia> any configurations?  settings?  choices? ^_^
[04:23:22] <necrodearia> you must have some sort of way for me to change options and stuff, no? ^_^
[04:23:27] <necrodearia> oh wait, wrong context
[04:23:33] <noagendamarket> oh
[04:23:35] <necrodearia> sarcasm
[04:23:40] <necrodearia> I was just kidding ^_^
[04:23:48] <necrodearia> e.g. play on software configuration, settings, etc
[04:24:49] <noagendamarket> how important is it that the server setup is exactly the same ?
[04:25:20] <necrodearia> It's important that the vps is xen and not openvz...which I am currently experiencing now with joepie91's vps for bitcoin markets
[04:25:44] <noagendamarket> isnt it useable ?
[04:26:25] <noagendamarket> I just need to know where to point the domain at during the transition
[04:26:59] <noagendamarket> people might get flighty if they think something dodgy is going on lol
[05:16:53] <necrodearia> eeep, I just realized I sent this to wrong person a while ago ^_^
[05:17:10] <necrodearia> <necrodearia> also, <amiller> i'll donate 6 months worth of linode for witcoin if you'll vaguely agree to help me with a UX implementation need i'm going to have in the next month

[09:38:17] <noagendamarket> he also owns a web dev company

Although I had not made up my mind on any of the offers for hosting as of yet, but I was interested in amiller's offer, however I personally had not yet established a decision, I found this quite abrupt and unexpected effort a bit suspicious/awkward:

[09:41:19] <CryptoXchange> What OS would you like me to setup for you necro?
[09:41:55] <CryptoXchange> I have a spare Win 2008, SQL setup ready, right now if you would like that?
[09:42:06] <necrodearia> o_O
[09:42:09] <noagendamarket> lol
[09:42:22] <noagendamarket> witcoin is on gentoo
[09:42:31] <CryptoXchange> ok
[09:43:02] <noagendamarket> I think necro would stab himself in the eye before using win Smiley
[09:43:32] <CryptoXchange> What OS do you want necro?
[09:43:56] <noagendamarket> ibugs Smiley
[09:44:04] <CryptoXchange> I need to install what ever you want, so prob take me half hour, if I install the OS, then you can configure the rest?
[09:45:29] <necrodearia> I am a tad bit confused and also a bit rushed.  I am not prepared to set up alternative hosting environment for witcoin without much understanding as to what is going on.  Although, I imagine noagendamarket has collaborated with you and is therefore more aware of what is going on.
[09:45:53] <noagendamarket> Well the current server wont exist shortly
[09:46:12] <noagendamarket> we need to move whatever is there
[09:46:41] <CryptoXchange> I have server space / bandwidth etc, so I can setup what ever OS is required, and then you can do what you need.
[09:47:16] <noagendamarket> ^^
[09:47:36] <necrodearia> CryptoXchange, Can you provide more details as to what you have?  Perhaps, is there a website for the company offering the hosting service that shows plan/server/vps details?
[09:48:08] <noagendamarket> necrodearia It isnt a plan lol
[09:48:16] <CryptoXchange> no, we don't usually sell hosting etc. We are a software company
[09:48:41] <CryptoXchange> But we can provide what is needed for you to get going etc
[09:49:08] <noagendamarket> I think as long as you have ssh access thats enough isnt it ?
[09:49:13] <CryptoXchange> all we need to know is how much disk space, and what OS etc you would like and I'll get it ready now for you
[09:49:30] <noagendamarket> the current one is 512mb ram
[09:49:35] <necrodearia> Okay.  Can you give me 24hrs or so before I respond?
[09:49:49] <CryptoXchange> NAM?
[09:49:52] <noagendamarket> yes
[09:49:57] <CryptoXchange> Im fine, anytime Necro
[09:50:10] <CryptoXchange> what OS do you want though?
[09:50:15] <CryptoXchange> I'll get it ready now
[09:51:15] <noagendamarket> Gentoo
[09:51:38] <noagendamarket> http://meta.witcoin.com/p/169/witcoins-technology
[10:03:47] <noagendamarket> its enough for a temporary fix
[10:18:54] <noagendamarket> This has been known for ages so its not a short notice thing lol
[10:19:10] <noagendamarket> Procrastination doesnt work Smiley
[11:42:27] <necrodearia> CryptoXchange, Is your server locally hosted in your place of business?  What is the incoming/outgoing bandwidth?
[11:44:53] <CryptoXchange> Hi
[11:45:12] <CryptoXchange> 1,000mbps/1,000mbps
[11:45:22] <CryptoXchange> It's in a secure Data Centre
[12:50:41] <necrodearia> CryptoXchange, ah, colocated hosting, nice.  What are the specs of the hardware?
[12:51:07] <necrodearia> Also, which facility?
[13:11:01] <CryptoXchange> Hi Necro, sorry been busy
[13:11:54] <CryptoXchange> I spoke to NAM, I'll allocate whats needed for Witcoin, we just ask for a link atthe bottom of the page, a banner some where would be nice
[13:14:44] <CryptoXchange> if you can let me know how much disk space you will need, and Ram etc please
[14:02:15] <noagendamarket> we currently use the linode 512 plan
[14:02:30] <noagendamarket> so anything > than that
[14:02:55] <noagendamarket> 512mb ram  200gb transfers a month
[14:03:23] <noagendamarket> Bitocind is a ram hog lol

In addition to previous hosting offers from others, I was not enthusiastic about that offer as well especially considering the link at the bottom of the page.

At this time there had not yet been a noticeable effort between noagendamarket and I to separate continued witcoin developments and as far as my impression or perspective I had considered another alternative donation/offer for hosting the site.  This offer was from amiller and he offered to credit noagendamarket's account to pay for vps service for six months.

It wasn't until October 28th, when I finally got a hold of noagendamarket after he returned from vacation/occupying that I learned noagendamarket preferred or desired to transfer continued witcoin hosting on CryptoXchange's server and also for them to contribute and help with development.  And later after continued conflict of interests, that had evolved into my losing interest in witcoin name and to continue my development of my codebase under a different name.

[11:55:02] <necrodearia> CryptoXchange, I';ll be doing that today also, but not moving it really..
[11:56:23] <CryptoXchange> ok, will it take long for you to move it to one of our servers?
[11:56:29] <CryptoXchange> let me know the cost
[12:05:48] <CryptoXchange> you here Necro?
[12:06:50] <CryptoXchange> It needs to be put on a decent server

[12:12:47] <CryptoXchange> Necro?
[12:14:01] <CryptoXchange> Necro, are you on skype?
[12:14:08] <CryptoXchange> please join us there?
[12:15:05] <CryptoXchange> we need to sort out witcoin, there are some changes that NAM and I have spoken about, if you won't move the site etc, orhelp, I'll have to get smene to, let me know
[12:19:37] <CryptoXchange> Anyone home?
[12:39:01] <noagendamarket> I dont think anyone is here
[12:39:34] <noagendamarket> necrodearia ?

As you can see in the above dialog CryptoXchange has taken responsibility or put forth effort to handle witcoin stuff, which conflicts with CryptoXchange's declaration (see very beginning of this post) "As this is David's domain, and it is not CryptoXchange that is actually working with this project."

Because of this concerted effort and also the private message with noagendamarket:

[11:43:48] <noagendamarket> hey
[11:45:18] <necrodearia> amiller sent over some credit to the linode account.  perhaps you may have noticed?
[11:45:29] <noagendamarket> orly
[11:45:38] <necrodearia> yep, so far us$40 worth of credit
[11:45:49] <noagendamarket> I havent noticed no
[11:45:51] <necrodearia> It should prevent your debit/credit card from being charged
[11:46:34] <necrodearia> we have been looking for a way in which I could establish service, but without having a credit card/debit card.
[11:46:56] <noagendamarket> how did that get credited ? lol
[11:47:02] <necrodearia> After glancing at rackspace and dealing with their customer support, I learned how horrendous their support is and decided to reconsider linode again
[11:47:11] <necrodearia> I considered not using linode because of...
[11:47:25] <necrodearia> their user/account implementation which seems a tad bit insecure and limited/restricting
[11:48:16] <necrodearia> In order to create a linode account and affiliate one or more vpses with it, a user must pay with credit card for one or more vpses.  It is impossible to create linode account with paying for any service.
[11:48:54] <necrodearia> And I remembered/relearned that my mizerydearia account/user is not really an account/user liek yours, but is instead a sub account through which your account is masyer/primary
[11:52:43] <noagendamarket> yes
[11:56:43] <necrodearia> Is it okay with you to preserve the linode vps as long as there is available credit in the account to pay for it and so you do not have to worry about paying anymore with credit card?
[12:09:50] <necrodearia> noagendamarket Is it okay with you to preserve the linode vps as long as there is available credit in the account to pay for it and so you do not have to worry about paying anymore with credit card?
[12:19:19] <noagendamarket> Ive been paying for over 12 months asking for witcoin to pay its way but was ignored

Because of this, I realized that noagendamarket had established a concerted effort to enforce a direction of witcoin to be placed on CryptoXchange's server AND for CryptoXchange to contribute to or take over witcoin.  This was not immediately recognized by me, although I was a tad bit suspicious, until about now and at this point I realized that noagendamarket had established an agenda to continue witcoin with CryptoXchange who, in noagendamarket's perspective, had presented a more active development than mine, in which I admit that it had been months since I touched witcoin, which I had written entirely from scratch.

I continued in #witcoin with consideration that there would be conflict of interest between noagendamarket (who paid for domain name and linode vps) and myself (who fully set up and administrated the vps as well as developed the codebase and database structure/backend of witcoin):

[13:43:27] <necrodearia> noagendamarket, I believe you are interested to establish an authentic copy of the project with link to cryptoexchange on CryptoXchange's co-located (in Australia?) company server, right?
[13:45:24] <necrodearia> Presumably I believe it is more desirable to host 'the' instance of witcoin and all the projects as opposed to only one instance in which additional or duplicate instances exist elsewhere.
[13:45:57] <necrodearia> However, in case of open sourcing witcoin, it should be fairly easy for anyone to host an instance of it or a modified version of it for their own purposes
[13:47:03] <noagendamarket> yes something like that
[13:48:08] <necrodearia> mmkay
[13:51:52] <necrodearia> noagendamarket, Did you want to set up an instance of the site on CryptoXchange's server and point witcoin.com *.witcoin.com to that server?
[13:54:40] <noagendamarket> I was thinking thats how we would do it

Notice how even though I had priorly privately communicated with noagendamarket telling him that amiller had credited noagendamarket's account to cover the costs of hosting the site, noagendamarket showed no effort or consideration of allowing for that and instead put forth effort and consideration solely into CryptoXchange taking responsibility of continued witcoin hosting and development.

<KenArmitt> what is the problem? those domains were purchased for noagendamarket, the .org, .net etc. They are being transferred to him when he gets back from his trip. What is the point of your forum posts? I simply asked that Crypto X Change be removed, just because in here I was logged in as Cryptoxchange does not mean I am talking about cryptoxchange building Witcoin for NAM
<KenArmitt> So please be clear on the matter, it is not Cryptoxchange developing Witcoin! NAM has been talking with me about a new development for it. In which we are assisting with programming company, cryptoxchange is not a programming company, this is being handled by another business owned by our family.
<mizerydearia> I referenced CryptoXchange because I see you interchangably use the nickname KenArmitt and CryptoXchange

Regarding ownership of topics - I'd ideally like to see the ownership transferred to the "new" witcoin, wherever that may be.

Either that or (as a poor second option) get the topics cashed out to the value of the bitcoin invested in their creation to the topic creator so that the topics may be re-created by said creator.

I'd hate to have to pay to create topics twice, or lose the bitcoin involved, or jeopardise the opportunity to help grow the community.

If you liked my post, please send me a bitcoin!

I received a private message from CryptoXchange:

Hi Miz,

Could you please remove cryptoxchange from this post please:

That is interesting concern and first importantly depends on if some or all content is preserved at witcoin.com in affiliation with noagendamarket and CryptoXchange or at another site that I am reestablishing under a different name due to lack of domain name ownership.  What are your thoughts?

As this is David's domain, and it is not CryptoXchange that is actually working with this project.

Thank you very much!

Talk to you soon.

Ken

So again, please stop mentioning Crypto X Change in relation to any issues between you and Dave. Crypto X Change is in no way involved in Witcoin or any similar projects, though the .net and .org domains were registered in a family account by Ken on Dave's behalf.

Please handle this with Dave.

Thank you,

Actually, his message was exactly as I quoted it, including the quoted message from me written in an unquoted fashion.

Also, note, "witcoin" is never uppercased similarly to how Indian or Internet is never lowercased. ^_^

Thanks, I will look forward to resolving this concern directly with noagendamarket.  I only full disclosured about Cryptoxchange affiliations because the forum private message I received contradicted with that in which the communications in the last week show otherwise.

I recognize that you and/or CryptoXchange may wish to abandon such responsibilities and affiliations and I will keep that in mind for further consideration of how to proceed.  This is related or similar to how I had previously been interested in proceeding to continue witcoin.com site on the very same linode 512 that noagendamarket was paying for (with funding from others such as the six months amiller had offered and credited a partial amount to noagendamarket's account), but with Cryptoxchange involvement, it had evolved into something else.



Note: I am afraid of privatized communications.  Publicly disclosing accurately and honestly without censorship or modifications of informations allows for all involved existences to establish responsibility for their participations and communications.



This is good advice: Stay out of forum debates. they just drain your energy and aren't productive.  Make announcements and keep putting out good software.

Miz,

What's the implementation language of Witcoinwitcoin?

Are you considering open-sourcing it? If so, I will make a donation. If not, would you be interested in supplying me with a one-time snapshot of the code and database schema (but not the data) in return for a worthwhile donation? Alternatively, I would be happy to post some bounties for you to make certain changes that would make it worthwhile for me to get more involved with your new site.

As suggested/promised on several occasions, I will be open sourcing my code base this year and fairly soon (because time's running out anyway ^_^).

Just to be clear,

I no longer control any of the bitcoins or the code as it was removed from the vps. Any responsibility for the loss of such coins and the care of the data is entirely dependent on other people. Mizery was offered income to do an orderly transfer/installation onto the new servers but refused for some reason. Similar to the way bitcoin code can be forked and companies can create derivatives or rewrite it.

As mizery was recently looking for employment it was one way I could help him do so by getting paid to help/consult with a future site.

There is no intention to exploit or otherwise take advantage of the guy because he was offered a JOB.

When bitcoinconsultancy relocated mizerydearia to poland all development work on witcoin was ceased and I decided enough was enough and that the users deserved a more professional approach and continued development. I admit it may be blunt to take the steps Im taking but I am acting to protect the brand name of the site and ensure the users get the site they deserve and also to have their concerns about server downtime and site features responded too rather than treated as a joke.

Any relationship I have with cryptoexchange or the developers of the site is no one's business and I would appreciate they be kept out of things. The domains were purchased to protect the brand name and are being transferred to myself.

Anyone who wishes to contribute going forward or offer suggestions is welcome to pm me.

You need to return peoples coins as soon as practical as you did not have permission to seize the site and take everything. Any time frame on this? The coins are not your personal property they belong to the users of witcoin. Your abusive treatment of them is no longer a joke and is bordering on criminal.

This is one of the hardest threads I have tried to read, yet most fun.  So when is witcoin coming back?  Because I am pretty sure once I made a post there, everyone else stopped using it, I assure you I won't try to use the site again Wink   thought I liked it in theory


I am thinking the competition brewing https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=53573.0 might actually allow witcoin to come back and stronger if someone is behind it implementing any useful features the competition might have

I haven't touched the code base since June and I am still suffering from health issues, so even though it's now the last day of the year, I still haven't made any progress towards preparing the code base to be suitable for distribution or usage for others, buuut, as per my suggested interest that evolved into a kind of promise to release code by the end of the year, here's an archive of the latest snapshot of the code base: http://www21.zippyshare.com/v/43869793/file.html license: AGPLv3
