British be playin' PoPo wit language
Five O'clock shadowin' syntax
Straight up now lovin' pronunciation
But G's be makin' words chillax

Laid back,
With my mind on Monero,
And Monero on my mind.

Obviously American English. The British have been hostile to cryptocurrencies thus far. How often do you see pound/BTC pairing?

--British banks won't deal with anyone related to cryptos.

Thats not a real reason to not use British English, of course most denominations are USD/BTC with the USD being the world reserve currency. Most other markets are denominated as so. You dont see much GBP/BTC parings as there isnt much demand to trade in that obviously but what does that have to do with using the correct language?

A brief question. I've downloaded the blockchain.bin from the first page together with the Monero Client .NET GUI. Is there a trick to force it to look up the downloaded database instead of redownloading the whole thing from scratch?
PS: I've followed the instructions and put it inside the %appdata%/Roaming/bitmonero as well as %appdata%/bitmonero but unfortunately, no cigar.

Thanks

Are you sure it was starting from scratch. The blockchain download is somewhat out of date so you will need to sync several weeks, but not the whole thing.

Once it is done syncing you should type save in the daemon window to update the blockchain file on your disk (normally this will happen every 12 hours).

Use either as long as it is well written. This is a very international project. The core team itself is from several different countries, not to mention the independent contributors and users.

I verified that it started from scratch. The files are located into %appdata%/Roaming/bitmonero (3 files: blockchain.bin, poolstate.bin, p2pstate.bin). I've put inside the blockchain.bin but unfortunately when started syncing started from 219 days behind. I stopped the client and restarted. The .net gui should save when closing down and it had the blockchain.bin reduced to some bytes from 2Gb...
Maybe I should put it into /temp or something...

Why would you leave out everything in my quote besides that 1 point? My original statement was:

"

--British banks won't deal with anyone related to cryptos.

"

You don't see the pound/BTC pairing mainly because British banks won't work with crypto exchanges so there is very limited ways to get pounds into crypto. With Britain being resistant to bitcoin and America accepting it....I think that is a pretty fair reason to write it in American English.


It honestly makes very little difference if you want to use 'z' or 's' etc, but that's my 2 cents.

I don't like this answer. I would strongly prefer an official suggestion.

Maybe it's just my character and feelings, but I don't like this. I am a perfectionist. I really prefer an official recommendation. Thinking about mixed AE and BE spellings in official and non-official Monero docs make me very sad and feel bad.

Please consider an recommendation.

we could use esperanto Wink
http://browse.dict.cc/esperanto-english/monero.html

i'd prefer be instead of ae; but my english sucks anyway...
what do you consider official? a whitepaper or documenation? the homepage itself? sourcecode comments?

it comes down to the point who is writing it for whom. longterm it makes sense to have multiple languages anyway as this is an international project

That would be because as I said the fact that you don't see GBP/BTC should have any bearing on which version of English you use. There is not limited ways to get GBP into crypto as I and many of my associates have done without any problems.

It makes little difference of course but that as a reason to use AE just isn't a proper one IMO.

It's a recommendation--an before vowel sounds, a before consonant sounds. Language is constantly in flux and the rules are constantly in disagreement no matter what language you use, so just chose whatever and stick to it. Using one standard may bar you from using terms that are more useful or that will make communication more efficient. Or even leave one programmer more worried about word choice than the code they're writing. Perfectionism is your affliction, no reason to make the whole group suffer too.  Tongue
