Barabbas i am veri confused about you buddy on whichs side are you exactly?
Pro vericoin? Critic on vericoin? I am to lazy to read you essays Cheesy

First of all I am on the side of people that self respect themselves and don't idiotically diminish themselves like you just did a few posts above prompted by the rant of a drunk. I am on the side of people that will push themselves to excel at whatever tasks they set for themselves and that never, ever, will define themselves as "shit", "failure" or whatever  used to portray yourself as the lowest possible form of a community representative, ok? Pull yourself together, take a long shower -with soap and shampoo- get the cleanest clothes you can muster and represent Vericoin with dignity and enthusiasm, ok?

Only AFTER you have done that and re-evaluate what you have in you, I am on the side of creating a worldwide event in which you will play a part promoting VERICON. It is a historical even, World Vericon Day. And contrary to what some may thing, while it will take one day only, it will "live" forever" through the graphic evidences posted everywhere and, most importantly, through the subsequent work, on a day to day basis, that yuo and many other worthy VRC leaders will carry out across the world.

Finally, study the word "critic", so you will have an appreciation of what it means. I know, much like "work" it is a word whose meaning seem lost in the young generation. Being critic is not negative, but the opposite. Especially when the criticisms come with ideas, suggestions and alternatives. There's no such a thing -although people in your generation use and abuse the adjective- as "positive" criticism. All criticisms are positive so it is like calling water wet. But the arrogant cannot see it that way, of course, therefore it is termed, usually, "negative", which is like calling water "dry". I am critical of the many aspects of Vericoin where we have come short -and indeed still come short... read above about the multipool-. And I am a critic of all the things done wrong or, worse yet, not done at all. And no matter how supportive of the project I may be, I will continue to push the foot to the pedal to get things done, to get the PROPER things done.

I am also very critical of dispersing resources trying to be everything to everybody while being nothing specific instead and drifting into oblivion, like we were 24 hours or so ago, while everyone seemed to be on vacation or, ultimately, hanging hopes on "secret weapons" announcements bound to disappoint. And I am critical towards arrogance, mine included. In all cases, even when "justified" by knowledge/experience. But I am especially critic of the arrogance that impedes flexibility and progression.

I'm afraid I won't have clarified much to you, but perhaps you should think a little bit more, collect your thoughts and ideas and then decide what your perception is going to be.

I'm counting of your... the best version of you you can offer, that is.

So are you getting paid for this vericoin work? I read a few pages back, you offered your service twice and have been waiting for big money offers come through. Now it seems you are a de-facto leader which would be amazing achievement from your part given that no one really can understand what you say and what's your role, whether you are a FUDster, hater, cynic critics, worker, bag holder, supporter, cyber-visionary, missionary, strategist or VeriLeader candidate - or perhaps all together. What are you Barrabas, are you going to lead the world day initiative?

Provided you are sober, which is doubtful at best, I'll explain one last time... in bullets for easier comprehension for I know what alcohol can do to your neurons:
 
- I am not paid for the Wold Vericoin Day initiative nor I seek more involvement than providing the content for the pamphlet to be distributed.

- I have offered this very same initiative -with many other strings attached, of course-, on a PAID basis, to the PINK main dev. All has been presented publicly in their forum so you can read every single basic detail. There were others but what's posted there sums it up thoroughly.

- I am what I am like Popeye said. It will never ever be even close to whatever your perception of me, which is not of my incumbence, you choose to have.

Helpful? Otherwise you can get back to the bottle at your leisure.

Well for anyone that wants to chime in (in a positive attitude only) on any ideas of what to do/say/talk about/present during the Minnesota State Fair, where I'll be representing Vericoin at the Vericoin booth Wink I'm open to suggestions.

Really what I would like to do is get a any/all ideas thrown out there over the next few days and then prioritize and come up with a game plan over the next week.

Also, I would still greatly appreciate any donations anyone can afford. 100% of donations will be handed out to people attending the fair during the event on 8/30/14. The statistics show an average of 200,000+ people there during the day. We will have the booth open from 11am-4pm right in the heart of the fair (called the Grandstand). So I would expect we will be talking to a lot of people.

We're currently at 3,010 VRC for donations. Every coin helps!

But the arrogant cannot see it that way, of course, therefore it is termed, usually, "negative", which is like calling water "dry". Or, the "delicate" that instead of "positive" substite the adjective by "objective", another impossibility in terms.  I am critical of the many aspects of Vericoin where we have come short -and indeed still come short... read above about the multipool-. And I am a critic of all the things done wrong or, worse yet, not done at all. And no matter how supportive of the project I may be, I will continue to push the foot to the pedal to get things done, to get the PROPER things done.

I've found that almost everybody is open to criticism and will gladly accept new ideas and suggestions when that criticism is delivered tactfully. Being able to give tactful criticism and suggestions is vital to developing a productive working relationship with someone. Failure to be tactful in your criticism will very likely lead to people not listening to you, regardless of how valid your criticism may be.

Take the following two approaches as an example:

Quote from: Critic #1
"What is it with these BULLSHIT fake numbers? This is starting to sound suspiciously, very suspiciously, like a whole lot of CRAP. You need to give us the real number of coins staking right NOW instead of giving some BULLSHIT explanations about your totally FALSE NUMBERS."

Quote from: Critic #2
"The Network Stake reported by the wallet doesn't seem very useful to the average user and is actually causing a lot of confusion. Can you guys change the wallet so that it reports the actual number of coins staking instead? That would be a lot more helpful."

Does anybody truly believe that #1 is an acceptable and professional way to give criticism?

This is where you fall flat on your face, Barbaras. You are completely without tact; even your proponents point this out. It's the main reason that I, and many others, ignore most of your posts. If you truly want to help with VeriCoin, you really need to work on that.

If you carry a laminated card with the QR codes for the Android and iOS wallet, you could step them through setting up their wallet.  Then send them one VRC. "Thank-you!  See how easy it is to send money?"

PS: Does the next Android/iOS wallet have a "Buy VRC" button?  That will be the kicker to get new adoption... even if it's just the link to Moolah.io.

+100

I think barabbas needs a hug.. Come here Barb hehe  Cheesy

This is clearly what i experienced here past couple of days. For the most part It became frustrating and tiresome.

I do understand the energy and urge to help.. all is appreciated, however half the time I spent was typing over & over again: respect each other, be mindful, let's work together, great idea etc. Then I get " Nobody here is doing anything"  Huh

I had to walk away, compose myself and try to  understand barabbas. * I still don't to be honest ...i'm still trying to find out how he figured out the other dude was having a drink lol  Grin

What i did get from him was: he has a lot on his mind, he has some good ideas, however he can be a bit.. harsh.
it is so easy, especially online typing to lose context, tone of message, especially Sarcasm. Hence tension can easily flare up. The moment you call anyone " idiot..... <- insert other colourful insults here  Cheesy it is over!

We all want to same thing. Otherwise we would not be here. We all want to see VRC leading, showing decent value etc.  in order for that to happen, we HAVE to learn to respect each other. I don't mind critics, hell i love feedbacks and comments, as long as you do it in a professional manner, you offer solutions, tactics and strategy...otherwise it is just smoke in the wind and nonsense.

Barabbas i am veri confused about you buddy on whichs side are you exactly?
Pro vericoin? Critic on vericoin? I am to lazy to read you essays Cheesy
The long one ...

So are you getting paid for this vericoin work? I read a few pages back, you offered your service twice and have been waiting for big money offers come through. Now it seems you are a de-facto leader which would be amazing achievement from your part given that no one really can understand what you say and what's your role, whether you are a FUDster, hater, cynic critics, worker, bag holder, supporter, cyber-visionary, missionary, strategist or VeriLeader candidate - or perhaps all together. What are you Barrabas, are you going to lead the world day initiative?

Provided you are sober, which is doubtful at best, I'll explain one last time... in bullets for easier comprehension for I know what alcohol can do to your neurons:
 
- I am not paid for the Wold Vericoin Day initiative nor I seek more involvement than providing the content for the pamphlet to be distributed.

- I have offered this very same initiative -with many other strings attached, of course-, on a PAID basis, to the PINK main dev. All has been presented publicly in their forum so you can read every single basic detail. There were others but what's posted there sums it up thoroughly.

- I am what I am like Popeye said. It will never ever be even close to whatever your perception of me, which is not of my incumbence, you choose to have.

Helpful? Otherwise you can get back to the bottle at your leisure.


Finally a sensible bloke, thanks Barrabas, at least you encourage me to drink more, the doctors just holding me back from fulfilling my full potential in alcohol consumption.  
I don't mind you get paid, even I am happy for you if it makes you happy what you do, I just wasn't sure whether the developers pay you or not. If you are getting paid from PINK as well then you are a coin mercenary which is not cool, you need to be dedicated to one coin only, you can't sit in two chairs with one butt, can you?

I will take this sentence "It will never ever be even close to whatever your perception of me, which is not of my incumbence, you choose to have." and a bottle of whiskey and I will try to elucidate this, because I have been dealing +50 years with all kind of professionals from all over the world, but I have never seen anything like this. Where did you go to school and what is your business that you talk like this? Don't get me wrong it's very nice, the British Royals talk like this as well. Are you Prince Charles, he seems unhappy lately, he might came here to let the steam out using the Barrabas nick?


I was just paraphrasing on an Anthony Hopkins quote, actually. But I do sound "princely" some times, I do...

Uh, answering your new rant, I could, potentially, "serve" 10 coins, or more, at the same time since I am not employed by any of them. You may be still hazy because I posted clearly I made a proposal to PINK to work for money; I retired it shortly thereafter.

just added another 100vrc to your stash

Excellent!! Donations received are now up to 3,310 VRC!!! This goes to show how awesome the Vericoin community truly is!

If you carry a laminated card with the QR codes for the Android and iOS wallet, you could step them through setting up their wallet.  Then send them one VRC. "Thank-you!  See how easy it is to send money?"

PS: Does the next Android/iOS wallet have a "Buy VRC" button?  That will be the kicker to get new adoption... even if it's just the link to Moolah.io.

I think the key to a successful day will be to actual get people at the fair to download the wallet and do a QR scan to receive VRC - feel the experience!! They need to feel the experience in transferring money. If they walk away thinking "oh wow that was easy" or "oh man that was pretty cool" then we know we have sparked interest - and that's really what this is all about: sparking enough interest that when they get home they will want to learn/read more.

One of the challenges crypto has faced since day one is that people are; scared, confused, overwhelmed, and misinformed. Showing people how simple it really is, educating them on the misconceptions - and showing them crypto really isn't something to be afraid of - should lead to the long term success of any coin, or more specifically Vericoin Wink Smiley

And no matter how supportive of the project I may be, I will continue to push the foot to the pedal to get things done, to get the PROPER things done.

I've found that almost everybody is open to criticism and will gladly accept new ideas and suggestions when that criticism is delivered tactfully. Being able to give tactful criticism and suggestions is vital to developing a productive working relationship with someone. Failure to be tactful in your criticism will very likely lead to people not listening to you, regardless of how valid your criticism may be.

Take the following two approaches as an example:

Quote from: Critic #1
"What is it with these BULLSHIT fake numbers? This is starting to sound suspiciously, very suspiciously, like a whole lot of CRAP. You need to give us the real number of coins staking right NOW instead of giving some BULLSHIT explanations about your totally FALSE NUMBERS."

Quote from: Critic #2
"The Network Stake reported by the wallet doesn't seem very useful to the average user and is actually causing a lot of confusion. Can you guys change the wallet so that it reports the actual number of coins staking instead? That would be a lot more helpful."

Does anybody truly believe that #1 is an acceptable and professional way to give criticism?

This is where you fall flat on your face, Barbaras. You are completely without tact; even your proponents point this out. It's the main reason that I, and many others, ignore most of your posts. If you truly want to help with VeriCoin, you really need to work on that.

I think barabbas needs a hug.. Come here Barb hehe  Cheesy

This is clearly what i experienced here past couple of days. For the most part It became frustrating and tiresome.

I do understand the energy and urge to help.. all is appreciated, however half the time I spent was typing over & over again: respect each other, be mindful, let's work together, great idea etc. Then I get " Nobody here is doing anything"  Huh

I had to walk away, compose myself and try to  understand barabbas. * I still don't to be honest ...i'm still trying to find out how he figured out the other dude was having a drink lol  Grin

What i did get from him was: he has a lot on his mind, he has some good ideas, however he can be a bit.. harsh.
it is so easy, especially online typing to lose context, tone of message, especially Sarcasm. Hence tension can easily flare up. The moment you call anyone " idiot..... <- insert other colourful insults here  Cheesy it is over!

We all want to same thing. Otherwise we would not be here. We all want to see VRC leading, showing decent value etc.  in order for that to happen, we HAVE to learn to respect each other. I don't mind critics, hell i love feedbacks and comments, as long as you do it in a professional manner, you offer solutions, tactics and strategy...otherwise it is just smoke in the wind and nonsense.

I disagree. Wholeheartedly. On every point made, bar none.

I am though, still waiting for your help with the content of the pamphlet and, more precisely, the question of why Vericoin will be "better" (more convenient, whatever...) for anyone than BTC or any other coin. I am asking for it, again, with extreme respect and trying to be not just tactful, nimble as a butterfly while inviting everyone else, especially the dev team, to contribute input. And giving thanks in advance to boot.

just added another 100vrc to your stash

Excellent!! Donations received are now up to 3,310 VRC!!! This goes to show how awesome the Vericoin community truly is!

If you carry a laminated card with the QR codes for the Android and iOS wallet, you could step them through setting up their wallet.  Then send them one VRC. "Thank-you!  See how easy it is to send money?"

PS: Does the next Android/iOS wallet have a "Buy VRC" button?  That will be the kicker to get new adoption... even if it's just the link to Moolah.io.

I think the key to a successful day will be to actual get people at the fair to download the wallet and do a QR scan to receive VRC - feel the experience!! They need to feel the experience in transferring money. If they walk away thinking "oh wow that was easy" or "oh man that was pretty cool" then we know we have sparked interest - and that's really what this is all about: sparking enough interest that when they get home they will want to learn/read more.

One of the challenges crypto has faced since day one is that people are; scared, confused, overwhelmed, and misinformed. Showing people how simple it really is, educating them on the misconceptions - and showing them crypto really isn't something to be afraid of - should lead to the long term success of any coin, or more specifically Vericoin Wink Smiley



Generally, I agree. But aren't you forgetting that the main purpose is not just to promote digital currencies, but actually promote Vericoin?

Hi Xosihc,

I uploaded a QR code for the Android Wallet at: http://vericoinnews.info/?p=693  You can print the QR code and make it a little easier for your audience to get the VeriCoin Android Wallet app.  I am not a Mac guy, so I could not begin to tell you what address it will have once it's released. But given the web address, I can create a QR code for you.

Cheers...

Dude that is awesome! I'll make sure to get this printed off on a few different signs. I have a good print shop here in town that I do a lot of business at.

Thanks for doing that! Much appreciated!

Finally, study the word "critic", so you will have an appreciation of what it means. I know, much like "work" it is a word whose meaning seem lost in the young generation. Being critic is not negative, but the opposite. Especially when the criticisms come with ideas, suggestions and alternatives. There's no such a thing -although people in your generation use and abuse the adjective- as "positive" criticism. All criticisms are positive so it is like calling water wet. But the arrogant cannot see it that way, of course, therefore it is termed, usually, "negative", which is like calling water "dry". Or, the "delicate" that instead of "positive" substite the adjective by "objective", another impossibility in terms.  I am critical of the many aspects of Vericoin where we have come short -and indeed still come short... read above about the multipool-. And I am a critic of all the things done wrong or, worse yet, not done at all.

I am asking for it, again, with extreme respect and trying to be not just tactful, nimble as a butterfly while inviting everyone else, especially the dev team, to contribute input. And giving thanks in advance to boot.

So you disagree ?? We should not act civilized and not respect each other. You dont think you are harsh at times ?  I previously stated this and i have been doing my best to work with you.

The way you came off was : I can easily crank out the content of the pamphlet. and according to you.. hell it should take no time to design, figure out the content, the strategy and get it approved by the devs. Do you recall me asking you to PM me, when you are ready to work.. reach out.

let's address this.

THIS is why we all previously said: it takes time to do thing. Myself, amesterdamer whom by the way has done a TON of promotional material for VRC we all can help out with design. So if you want to work on this pamphlet , we can. Ideally it should be a tri or quad fold, front and back.. 1 cover vericoin logo,  2 ) intro paragraph about vericoin. 3 ) benefits of it. 4 ) how it works 5 ) how safe is it 6 ) why should i use it.

Previously i designed a similar brochure which was based off the white papers and other contents the devs wrote * keep in mind i am not a copywriter, nor would i call myself that. however i can get the idea on paper and someone else can massage the copy better. Reach out to the devs, they can share that pdf with you.  

So tell me... am I writing this content then design it ?  or will you write it. You are the one that had the idea, I am assuming you have this content. Also what other ideas did you have for this promo day.

I still think you need a hug haha Cheesy
