YAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!

IT WAS a full day (1 day) of logged in time and then 101 posts cause on my 102'd I got my 3rd coin and am now a real man, a real full member.  man it feels great when you actually work for it.  Now I wonder if this transfers over to devtome so I can post graphs, pics and diagrams for some of the papers I write there or if this is totally separate from devtome.

I'll find out soon.  

And the links are showing at the bottom of my page which is nice although the 3 coin wallets I put aren't showing even though there's plenty of room.  I think maybe cause I left too much space to try and make it look nice.
Yes it's separate to devtome. To post gaphs, pics etc you need to use the correct syntax, some trial and error is involved. Check here: http://devtome.com/doku.php?id=wiki:syntax

Thanks, if you guys notice any verbiage that should be changed let me know. I tried to condense it down as much as possible to essentials. There may be typos and such I completed a lot of it in the middle of the night.
Nice. Would be better to have a cleaner front page in my opinion, just some links to more and a summary, per bitcoin.org or similar. Also the step 2, for most people that will involve buying via vircurex/mcxnow so probably worth making that clear there rather than/as well as step 3? Could do with editing for grammar/spelling etc. Happy to go through it and post text, but I don't want to be taking the p!ss so let me know if you want that or plan on going through yourself later.

Jasin made the devcoin portal:
http://devcoin.org/

For this he gets 6 shares from the portal bounty:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=34586.msg2028266#msg2028266

He also gets 1/5 of a share for maintenance, as long as it's operating.

There is a remaining bounty of 3 shares for another portal. Only the first portal is the official portal. The remaining award for the second portal is just there in case someone happened to be working on another portal at the same time, and in case the first portal was abandoned. The second portal would not get links to it nor would the domain record be changed to point to it.


I like the idea, but I think that something more visual, without all this text, will be better as a homepage. New visitors don't want to see all this text when they enter for first time.
I started creating something but now I haven't got available time.

Ok I had time now, may not have it later, so had a run through - added/deleted parts, and I think it would work best on cleaner subpages from the homepage, using newer logos. Obviously feel free to re-edit/bin it as you please, but thought it needed breaking up, tidying: (another thing, at least for windows users I'd recommend settling on one wallet as more than one option will only confuse the doubleclick generation, and I say that from experience).
------------------------
What are Devcoins?

Devcoin is an ethically inspired project based on the Bitcoin crypto-currency and created to help fund open source projects created by programmers, hardware developers, writers, musicians, artists, filmmakers and other ideas you may have.

Participants in the Devcoin economy earn Devcoins in proportion to their project development. Writers earn Devcoins by writing, developers earn Devcoins by developing, and artists earn Devcoins by creating. This reward principle follows for other categories of open-source development and includes administrators and marketers who work to organize and market the Devcoin project.

We consider funding open-source projects of all sorts. If you have an idea that requires funding and would like us to take a look please share it with the Devcoin community on our thread at the BitcoinTalk.org Forum and submit your project on Cryptostocks. We understand you may not want to discuss your idea in public. If that's the case, please submit it to (email).

Why Devcoins?

Devcoin aims to help fund open source projects, and all not necessarily related only to Devcoin. It’s worth your time and effort because it pays to be involved in the project. Direct payment for your development work or indirect payment as development is undertaken in the areas that matter to you.

By incentivising and rewarding time and effort spent working Devcoin supports real development and action today, rather than just the hope of an early mover payback tomorrow, ensuring sustainability.

There’s a growing community of people already regularly contributing to the growth and economy, people using Devcoins for payment and receipt, projects backed by existing Devcoin loans across the development and gaming community, and so Devcoin is here to stay.

How does Devcoin work?

The purpose of Devcoin is to distribute income to open-source developers for their work in as fair a manner as possible. Many open source developers do receive any significant return. Advertising, charity and consulting may provide income but many developers, and even those with projects utilised by thousands of clients, only receive a few dollars a month. In a typical modern economy approximately one percent goes to charity. That is not enough to support such efforts, people and projects.

As developers receive so little, they can only develop their projects in their spare time which slows developments significantly. Feature requests and critiques do not accelerate development, but money will.

Devcoins provide an income for everyone who wants to work. With Devcoin no one who wants to work need be completely out of income, as anyone who produces good work may receive Devcoins. There is no guarantee this will be a high income, but something is way better than nothing. By buying Devcoins you help developers and give the world more open source software, books, music, art, and film.

Evolution of Devcoin

Bitcoin was the world's first decentralized digital monetary system, in existence since January 3rd 2009, and the Bitcoin currency unit is now in use worldwide. Started in 2011, Devcoins are similarly created and controlled by advanced mathematics and cryptography.

No government, bank, or corporation owns or controls Devcoins or Bitcoins. Devcoins as a currency unit are created over time at a diminishing rate, but remain highly divisible. More technical and historical information may be found on Devcoin’s first open source revenue project, Devtome. (hypertext)

Devcoin differs from payment systems like Paypal because:

•It is decentralized; no group has monopoly control
•It is not tied to the US dollar or other national government currencies
•It is impossible to suffer charge-backs or frozen accounts
•It is relatively anonymous
•Fees are optional; you may pay to process your transactions slightly faster
•Devcoin gives people and communities a way to invest their money in and with open-source developers, with the option of withdrawing the money if needed.

Learn more about the donation philosophy on the devtome.com wiki.

Anyone in the world, of any age, in any country, for any purpose may start accepting and spending Devcoins immediately. It's an entirely free-market currency that every human on the planet may use. It returns the power of money to the people and away from the banks and the government.

The supply of Devcoins, like Bitcoins, is mathematically controlled at a pre-determined rate, and cannot be inflated beyond this. There is no sign-up or approval process. You can have a Devcoin account in under a minute.

Step 1: You need a Devcoin wallet. This is where your Devcoins are stored.

The Original Devcoin Client Wallet is free, open-source software. And here is a thread to help setting up the wallet.

For windows you can download the wallet application:

• Devcoin Windows32 Zip File
• Devcoin Experimental Windows32 Setup Exe
• Devcoin Windows32 Experimental Zip File
• Windows Bundle

For Mac/Apple you can download the wallet application:

• Mac OSX Devcoin

For Linux box you can download the wallet application:

• Latest Devcoin Files
• Sources for the linux graphical version

Information

• Debian Devcoin-qt
• Debian Devcoind
• Ubuntu Devcoind

Step 2: Getting Devcoins. This can be done in a variety of ways.

• The most common method would be to merge mine Devcoins with Bitcoins. There is at least one pool which merge mines Devcoins with Bitcoins:
 
1. The bitparking pool: MMPool.bitparking.com
2. You may also mine Devcoins as a secondary chain with P2Pool: P2Pool Forum thread

If you are mining Devcoins as a secondary chain, you will receive Devcoin blocks far more often than Bitcoin blocks, because the Devcoin hash rate is much lower than the Bitcoin hash rate. The mining portion of the Devcoin block is 5,000 Devcoins.

• The next method is via participation in the Devcoin open-source community:

1. Suggest your own development idea and/or join existing efforts (hypertext to devcoin bitcointalk.org thread)
2. Take advantage of the Devcoin Wiki where you can earn Devcoins by writing (hypertext).
3. You can also earn Devcoins by advertising (hypertext)

• A Devcoin ‘faucet’ (hypertext) where you may obtain some free Devcoins

• If you prefer to simply buy Devcoins from others, using Bitcoins or US Dollars, two exchanges offer this facility. Both incorporate a simple account to exchange and send Devcoins to and from your private wallet.

1. www.vircurex.com
2. www.mcxnow.com


Step 3: Spending Devcoins

The primary use of Devcoins is in project funding and as investment in yourself and a growing community where value is projected to grow longer-term as take up increases. There are other locations to purchase items with your newly acquired Devcoins, including the exchanges where you can convert your Devcoins to other currencies:

etc

The "Official" logo should be chosen soon enough, when that happens I will update the page to reflect it. This site is only preliminary, psybits is going to be toying with graphics and "beautifying" it this week. I agree a simplified wording is necessary. I suggest someone make a page on devtome.com and everyone can edit, or even make separate pages and whichever everyone decides upon can be the final format. This page is simply a summary to be used as a public facing page until we are done. I would like it to remain easily displayed on mobile devices (which is why I stuck to the norm of bitcoin sites with twitter bootstrap).

Do we have a firm date on the logo voting? Also I suggest bounties for visually appealing graphics at request. Psybits seems competent in design so I would like him to spearhead that portion and get feedback and direction from everyone on how it should look/feel. Then he will have access to change the page itself. Any objections? Suggestions?

Fair enough, just suggesting ideas, especially from a more general not-so-familiar-with-cryptos perspective. I'm happy to start a page in devtome - can call it what you have devcoin_org, headings representing sub pages with no one person affiliation and everybody can edit it as you say?

Where it says "Hits" that's not how many views it's got?

no it's not, it's how many times 'collin county' appears in the article.

Unrelated, but on the logo issue mentioned earlier, I think marticps' latest one posted several pages back is good.

I have some kind of weird supposedly git thing,

diff --git a/contrib/Bitcoin.app/Contents/Resources/BitcoinAppIcon.icns b/contrib/Bitcoin.app/Contents/Resources/BitcoinAppIcon.icns

that supposedly is somehow to update the github source code for old-devcoin-qt

But I have no idea how to play is, there is not "git patch" that takes a "git diff" and applies it it seems plus even if there were, none of those directories actually exist in the source code.

So I do not know how to pull this or whatever it is that git does to put such a file into use.

Maybe if it was a pull request git would know what to do but since none of the directories even exist it does not look like it has anything to do with old-devcoin-qt in the first place.

I also tried patch and patch -p1 and patch -p2 and patch -p3 and patch -p4 but none of them knew what to do with it either.

So sorry I dont see any way this file can actually be fed to anything to get it to take effect.

I try to follow up but just cannot catch... what do you mean? are you just want to add a icon to devcoin-qt, or anything other?

btw, is there any news for a new-devcoin-qt? I mean, an updating of devcoin code to a more recently bitcoin code.

As far as Ican tell there is some rather different version of devcoin-qt out there, and maybe this diff is for applying the changes to it, not to the old-devcoin-qt that I am trying to apply it to.

I think the other version may have wallet encryption in it too as well as image changes.

Thank you Smiley

Edit: I am still confused... Do you paste that code TO vote, or does pasting that code add a little vote box or something?
