Rob, all I really care about is increasing number of conversions/investors for BiblePay,
I believe my design is better than your current design in that regard

Please merge my design based on its own merits
and not judge or block using it because of whatever drama is in that thread

Interesting, so I pointed out a couple flaws in your thread and you are basically saying "I think they should be there".

1.   Do you then think your lack of moderating it is correct, to leave the mean spirited comments in and allow it to stay unmoderated, while accusing me of bad moderation in the same thread?

2.  Do you mean you will resist my suggestion to rename your thread as supporter, as it is drawing potential investors over to the non official thread and confusing them?

Wait, I found yet another bug.

I'm sorry... It didnt reveal itself til I synced my 3rd node.

Please wait for the new testnet version again.

Hey Rob, thank you for your valuable feedback on this

On the topic of change, I personally get attached to original GUIs,
for instance, I still used the original BiblePay wallet theme for a loooong time before finally switching to the bezaleel theme,
and I got upset when Gmail forced new GUI on me haha

Forum wise, I like SMF / phpBB layout vs the Discourse layout, the discourse layout is weird, I like what Im used to

But I do like this quote: "The only constant is change"
https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Heraclitus

=

Comparison of Internet forum software
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Internet_forum_software

=

Proposal wise, I agree this proposal lacks any funding,
its more of a "Should we use Discourse over SMF?", I probably should have worded it that way or started it as a pre-proposal,
I think Im trying to push consensus through now vs letting it sit for months in discussions

Im not sure what an accurate time estimate is, but it only took me about 2-3 hours to set everything up,
for switching over, add an hour to switch DNS records,  add in hours for migrating accounts/threads/posts
and add in hours for learning a new system, and add in buffer for unknowns
I think the 80 hours estimate is very high, maybe 20-30 hours combined would be my estimate

=

Also, any time Ive spent on this Im donating to BiblePay
Im cool with whatever decision gets made, just offering this as an interesting alternative

I agree on almost all of the above points and discourse doesnt look too bad, especially if PIVX uses it.

However on this one:
"Im not sure what an accurate time estimate is, but it only took me about 2-3 hours to set everything up,
for switching over, add an hour to switch DNS records,  add in hours for migrating accounts/threads/posts
and add in hours for learning a new system, and add in buffer for unknowns
I think the 80 hours estimate is very high, maybe 20-30 hours combined would be my estimate"

I agree with the 20-30 hours for migration tasks other than migrating the entire forum content.
I make the assumption that (not knowing which method we would use to move the data), that we would not move to an empty discourse forum.  IE that we did already manually create the old topics and threads and configure the software (in X hours or so) I assume we still need to move some data.  The rest of this time was a guess on  my part for migrating the data.  I don't know if a data migrator exists or not (from SMF to discourse).  This is basically padding the estimate to ensure TheSnat would want to entrench himself in this endeavor.

Im neutral on this subject- so I think we should let thesnat weight in more on this as I feel we would be pushing the lions share of work over to him if we switch to discourse.  (Especially if he is willing to be hosting the forum etc).  He might be working on POG PHP pages, or proposal enhancements, or wanting to run a copy of dashninja (we should consider calling that BiblePayRabbi if we ever do that) etc.  I would like to see how he would like to spend his next 6 month time.  If he wants to push this off and still do it later please let us know Snat.

To be clear, I think the content of the main post in togo's ann thread is what he wants moved to the main ANN
not replace the existing ANN altogether.

As I have time I will look into moving over.  I think the added features will be a benefit.

1.1.6.4d-Mandatory Upgrade for TestNet

- Fixed bug in tithe inductor
- Add ability to force a tithe in (for people who want to donate to foundation regardless of diff) - the tithe doesnt count in the pool - this is in sendcoins UI
- Added exec istithelegal txid - Allows a user to verify a tithes legality - good for debugging purposes
- Modified exec tithe amount - To also accept just the amount.

Note that this version will disconnect older clients, so please, everyone upgrade.
Since this version considers a block before 1164 a bad block, we will need to do quite a bit of resyncing to agree, please lets check our blockhash.

Also ready in biblepay-official/testnet PPA for Linux and MacOS testnet URL (www.biblepay.org/biblepaycore-testnet.dmg)

Question to the user who crashed, did you crash with 0 blocks in the chain?  If so I reproduced and fixed that in 1164, if not let us know how to reproduce.
