We currently have a project management system in place where I take ideas from the forums and and create a series of tasks for implementation. I have about 15 developers and community supporters in the system that can assign themselves to any task which they wish to take on. I pre-determine what roles are needed etc...

In this platform communication is had regarding the direction of the project, questions that come up and opinions on what next.

Now that the wallet has been updated it will be easier to handle coin control and properly manage a campaign.

The idea (as soon as I finish updating the website) is to assign a mintcoin address generated from a wallet owned by the mintcoin community (which I currently hold but will be passed down to the next person when needed) which has unique addresses for each initiative to held as a "bounty" so to speak for that particular initiative.

So in essence investors can "vote" for their initiatives by donating towards the bounty of that project (except I am currently giving them random donations from my personal wallet and praying others follow)

As long as we can keep the organization and management of the campaigns going the idea is that the more investors donate to projects, the more dedicated the volunteers will become the more projects will be completed - the more talented volunteers we will grow within our community.

Here is another piece to it all - credit of work for portfolio's and community tipping atmosphere.

My question is..
How can we use this system I have been working on building to create the "Mintcoin Guardians"?

Perhaps inviting the guardians into the developers circle for investing - creating a section where we offer portfolios of top investors and recent projects they have supported with a tipping address for the investor?

If possible I would like to keep this conversation going for a few days so I can create a strategy for implementation with your feedback. Ill submit an open pole next thursday (taking this weekend off - enjoy the wallet update!) and spread across the social networks taking everyone's feedback.
I have had something implemented in Colossuscoin in the very same way as the Mintcoin guardians you speak of since the beginning of the year. A community is like a clan so it should adopt a tiered clan structure, I have spent time when I was younger moderating and managing forums for top clans of 300-400 people. The structure works because all long term members vote on new members and the "guardians" choose or reject other guardians. The only problem we had once was where we had let someone into the Development Team and they started trolling all the other members and was unanimously agreed upon to remove that person.

Instead of charging people to be a part of the guardians you should be paying them in Mintcoin and the way that can be done is by charging a % of stake to a group managed fund which needs a majority of keys, Armory style. Then you also raise the minimum fee to also be adaptive to the amount of combined transactions with a % minimum and change the Coinage to slightly decay over time. Bloat is a big issue and you don't want to have exchanges and other places clogging up the Blockchain with 1000's of combined transactions for large withdrawls so the way transactions are combined should also be looked at in how to make it more efficient.

You can check out exactly how I have setup the forum structure with my test forums I made a few months back, I'll just copy what I wrote about it from the forums.

The forum address is http://107.170.4.50/index.php

As a guest you can post in the guest section without logging in and cannot see the regular access development and marketing sections, Introduction, accepted and denied applications, or archived messages.

Only guests can see the "register now" board link

If you are registered you are a newbie to start and until you have a post count of 5 or higher, you cannot post in the general discussion or marketing and development sections, and posting in the guest section does not count to your post total. This is to limit people from signing up and just posting whatever they need in any section such as wallet issues in the general discussion and project sections.

At 10 posts you become a Jr Member and can now post in the application section.

As you post more, you gain more posting rights, use of avatars, polls etc.

Members and Development Team have larger sections then currently and the boards seem larger because all the child boards from General Discussion are split up and all the local child boards are now part of their own sections.

You can view how the boards look from each users point of view

Original post:
I had a fantastic idea, I created a new Colossuscoin Test forum so that we can work open source on building our forums without people needing admin privileges. There is no domain for the forums, hopefully you guys can connect to it. I made a copy of the layout of our boards and combined it with the layout of Bitcointalk and Gaming forums and reorganised and renamed all the boards and edited all the descriptions. I think it would be a great addition to all the hard work Sudo and Heat007 put into the design of the forums. If you like my layout proposal I think it would be fairly easy for Sudo to copy all the board names and descriptions and I could help organize everything.

These are the Forums I made.
http://107.170.4.50/index.php


I find the forums to be a fantastic way to store a lot of useful information, I even have a section of where we can collaborate information on ideas and different methods.




I am not just suggesting these things, I am implementing them into the new structure of Colossuscoin, abeit a bit slower than I'd like to see it happen but making progress. Much of what I am working with is based off Mintcoin so I guess you guys will see whether the structure works or not regardless.

Hello all Mintcoiners,

I have uploaded a full copy of the Mintcoin Blockchain to Megaupload. This is to help all Mintcoiners who are new and want to fully sync their wallets from scratch quickly.

The link for the Blockchain as of August 11th is available here https://mega.co.nz/#!8x8zwZgS!TSg2kis3nLWx12_SsDFnbjQA-zDoOfhdkC09i3ks12g

The Zip file compresses the Blockchain by 31% and provides a direct link for download. The size of the file is 750 MB and takes about 1 hour to download vs approximately 36-48 hours to Sync from scratch.

I posted an in depth guide on sharing the Blockchain in this way a couple pages back as well.

Happy Mintcoining

Crestington

Fabulous! Thanks!

Cryptomommy asked me if I could do this for you guys and so I took the time out to do this for you guys so please make sure that this isn't going to get buried in the thread pages.

I don't own any Mintcoin and don't have a lot of time to devote to helping other Altcoins so I would like it if a someone from the community could take the time to test, adapt and polish the guide for Mintcoin which I posted a few pages back https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=450381.16600


In return for my services I would like it if you guys please could link me to the process you are using for uploading and hosting the Blockchain via Torrents.
Excellent! Do we have a torrent of this yet we can all seed? That way people can download it in like 5 minutes instead of an hour. I have lots of bandwidth to help out seeding.

I don't have loads of bandwidth, but I'd be more than happy to help seed.   Wink

Who can make a torrent and seed this? Also the magnet link on the announcement thread needs to be deleted as it is old and doesn't work.

Well I tried testing it out but it is not working for me.  I downloaded it, and pasted the files into my Appdata > Mintcoin folder but when I run the wallet, it gives an error message. Does this happen for anyone else?

It has worked with other coins, what exactly did you do and what error message was given?

I download the files to desktop and extracted them then copy and pasted and replaced the files into the Mintcoin folder where the old files were. This is the error:


Then I tried deleting the two blockchain files and then restarting, and then it works, but starts re-downloading the blockchain from scratch again.

When I have a bit of extra time over the next few days I'll go over it and run some tests, what operating system are you running? I did the Blockchain on a computer with Windows 7.

Running Windows 7 Home Edition

I had the same thing happen on the buntu 64 bit wallet. It would not accept blkindex files from previous wallet and the download link at mega would not work. I had to let the wallet sync on its own.

Other than that, the new wallet is very nice and works fine.

Yeah. This block explorer is free, they make money on advertising... They also have a Mintcoin faucet.

Well it's certainly very quiet in here today!

I have an issue with the new wallet. Upon adding up my minting for a few hours last night, the total minted was over 600k, but the total coins only increased about 100k. I'm currently going through transactions and the blkch, but I'm wondering if anyone else sees anything like this?

Win 7 Ultimate x64

Interestingly, I had quite a few transactions that exceeded 30k. I opened the previous version, and they aren't there... none of them. And now the minted amount matches what I have in my wallet... now to re-open the new wallet, after I have made a backup. Odd.

Edit - going back to the new version shows them all as there again, which makes the amount in my wallet differ greatly from what it's reporting as being minted.  Huh

A note from Robo Guy:
The most recent changes didn't mess with the minting code. I would have the user run " -rescan Rescan the block chain for missing wallet transactions".

Let me know if this works?

Have noticed sticking , until a fix is worked out ,
