I think you may have wiped out your file past your abilities to recover it if I read what you did accurately.

I think you are right.  Everything you just said adds up and details exactly what I did.  I'm out a fresh $400.  I should have left It at Vircurex but they got hacked twice in 2 months and I wanted to spread the risk by putting some coins on a cold drive.  Man, this hurts.  Thanks for you input.

I think you may have wiped out your file past your abilities to recover it if I read what you did accurately.

I agree with Twobits' excellent analysis. Unless a miracle happens, it's gone.

What can be done, is get a new address from your new wallet, then a test transaction will be sent to it. After it works, I'll change the file addresses and ask Mark to generate a new receiver, and all the other file administrators to upload it. This will give you 8,235,000 devcoins for your round 23 work. In return, as soon as you get about 1.1 million of them, you'll pay all the file administrators their typical salary of 2/5 of a share, which is 143,713 each this round. You'll also pay the people who helped on this thread, 143,713 for Twobits who wrote an informative post, and half that to FinShaggy and Jasinlee who wrote small posts. You'd end up with around 7 million.

If you agree to this, please message me a new address.


There's no need to do any of that since this was on my desktop.  Remember a few days ago I loaded a new wallet on there to see why the one on my laptop wasn't working?  And it turned out that the desktop wallet, which was the new client, wasn't working either so then I concluded it was the firewall and it was.  

Well, right after that I decided to transfer some devcoins, 1,000,000 from vircurex to that desktop (it's actually an old dell 1U server) because it has 4 scsi drives and I was planning to use one of them as a cold drive after reading that's what vircurex does to keep hackers from getting to the wallets.  

The problem was this new wallet (with the 1,000,000 in it) was on my C drive so I was at risk everytime I got on the net so I decided to cut the entire user file so I wouldn't make the mistake of transferring just a few files, to the 4th, G drive and that's when I messed up.  So now that wallet is gone and there's a new one running.

But the wallet I gave you is off my laptop and that one is ok.  So nothing has to be done on your end, I was just trying to see if anybody knew an easy way to restore that older wallet but that doesn't look possible.  But thanks for the advice, I hope other newbies can learn from my $400 mistake.

So no worries,  I'm good to go with my old, 1BroUgeCemQvWeYBekpFyEFGZVqrXnrtQ9, wallet number.  Thanks.

@vlad have you tried to recover the wallet like twobits suggested, for example with recuva or something similar? I personally would at least try if it's about potentially a few hundred bucks


I didn't try that cause I didn't know where or how to begin.  but now that you gave me a name I'll look into it.  The main reason is that this $400 today may be worth much more next year so I might as well try now.  

This is a good example of what can go wrong with wallets so hopefully new people playing around with their computers will see this and get something out of it.  If this had happened after I got paid there would have been closer to 10 million coins on there as that cold drive was going to be my main holder of my devcoins.  Good lesson to learn on someone else's skin and for $400 instead of $4,000.

Thanks for the advice.  I don't want to take more time from relevant conversations.


And thanks to MarkM, Weisoq, finshaggy and the rest who so willingly offered to help with coins.  Very unexpected.  Thanks a lot.

I've just sent a test (10 dvc) to that address. Can you let us know if you do/don't get it on your machine.
edit: ok I sent you some more. I can't afford 100k but something to get your wallet and maybe your zest going again, and only about 10 days until the devtome earnings.

There it is!  I really appreciate it, man.  


Edit:  there's 27,394 now in there.  Anonymous or.....?  Thanks all the same.  I really didn't expect this.  

And if I ever recover the deleted coins I promise to return everyone's coins.  


Edit 2:  Thanks Weisoq...appreciate it.

Actually if you found https://www.box.com/s/ntna8dibxek351s42fxu , it has both the daemon and a gui version.  However the gui version is not packaged up into an App format yet.  That is next on the list,  just was waiting for a reason to need to do new builds.  However,  if you go to where you unpacked it and run the file devcoin instead of devcoind you should get a gui version popping up.

I'm sending 30k your way. Not a ton, but hopefully enough to make this situation less painful. Cheers.

Yeah,  https://www.box.com/s/cv35rbugsvvz1lbi1iw4 for NMC builds.   However, it is currently like the devcoin build, and no icon to make it into an app.  So you have to run the namecoin file.   Unlike devcoin, where marticps helped out by supplying me some graphics, no one has given me the graphics files to use with nmc as of yet, so I have no idea when I will be changing that for nmc.

Where does one get a tipjar?

You're a gem, both of them work like a peach, I don't mind no icons if I can run them without having to launch Crossover Cheesy As for a tipjar, I just meant an addy to send you a few coins of these alt-flavors. DVC/IX/NMC are my prefer'd alts, though I will admit I collect a good bundle of them--its like rock hounding.

Hi everybody, I'm pretty excited about the whole "pay the creators" idea, so glad I stumbled upon this.

I have a few noob questions about the word count for shares, sorry if this has been answered a million times already.

Devtome says: "Original work gets a generation share per 1,000 words."

Does that mean all words of all articles submitted are added together and then divided by 1000?
So 1200 + 600 + 400 = 2200 / 1000 = 2 shares

Or is each article considered a separate submission?
1200 (1000 counted, 200 void) + 600 (discarded) + 400 (discarded) = 1000 = 1 share

Also I assume the count script automatically accounts for articles already paid for in a previous round and I can just keep adding to my user page? What if I add words to a previously existing article?

Thanks in advance and good luck to all of you (and me Cheesy)

It counts all of them up and divides them by 1,000

It reads the articles you already submitted and only counts new words on your later rounds.

Devil worshipers cult Illuminati (Bilderberg Group) trying to ban Bitcoin.
They are moving in hard now.

video source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBOLhvuGcPE&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Everyone must rise up to take down the Devil worshipers cult Illuminati also known as the (Bilderberg Group) asap!

I have an idea for how to do this... Make a coin that they HAVE to embrace.
The DEVILcoin.
A coin where the symbol is an upside down star/goat, then the word "Coin".

And I nominate Devcoin.
The Illuminati might like a coin with devil imagery and plans for developing mankind.
I would embrace this!


Can someone photoshop Venom->Coin?

Right? I really think we need a devil coin symbol.

Would anyone be interested in starting a "Church of Development". Where "god" is "the future", and we worship by making it better. Basically just a developmental coin charity that religiously works towards the future.

I am a certified minister and I will work to get non-profit status in my state, but here is the base for the organization, I already have 200 members:

Thanks for the logo, you'll get 2/5 of a share in round 24. There are three 2/5 of a share awards remaining.


To all artists,

To enter a logo, please post your favourite image separately, so I can load it to the devcoin gallery, then I'll award the bounty.

Also, I suggest that the logo vote be taken after we have fifteen logos, or July 1, whichever comes first, any objections?
