Production Proposals / Re: Use Discourse as Main Forum

Apache has mod_rewrite . If the former url scheme and new url scheme has a repeatable pattern it is easy to do. Worst case you'd have to manually wrote a big redirect list.

Production Proposals / Re: Use Discourse as Main Forum

Another strong reason for Discourse is the ability to review changes in the post:
https://meta.discourse.org/t/everyone-can-view-post-change-history/7639

Production Proposals were/are being treated as Preproduction Proposals with changes to the proposal text diverging from the original intent of the proposal. I believe this practice is wrong and we should follow IT best practices such as having different environments dev/test -> QA -> production. Same with proposals. If the proposal is not well formed, it should be discussed in pre-production proposal. But if proposals in production must be edited, at least Discourse gives the feature where you can compare the original post with subsequent revisions. Its not perfect, but changes can be followed which I think is a more honest approach.

I don't see any downside to using Discourse and only upside.

my only concern is SEO, and there should be some plan to perform 301 redirects of old urls to equal URLs in Discourse:
https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aforum.biblepay.org

Agreed on the 301,  this is important.. not sure the best way to do that yet, but will figure something out.

Thanks Rob! I hope that you are doing well. You are in my thoughts.

I just realized something really stupid! In the spreadsheet I didn't yet factor in the leftover BBP from the airdrop and the hardcopy guide budget. (I'm not the most organized person in the world :p) That in total is about 340k BBP. See the threads here:

https://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?topic=120.msg4568#msg4568

Let's cross that off against each other and call it a day.

So please everyone: downvote my proposal for this month! As far as I'm concerned I'm compensated enough for the coinexchange listing.

Wow thanks for the update, glad it worked out!

Don't forget us while you're away Jaap! :)

in the gui, donate to foundation only allows me to select tithe amount.

in cli, exec tithe allows me to specify coin_age and coin_min_amount. I wonder if exec tithe should just allow me to specify a tithe amount only? so if I type exec tithe 300, i will either be told the tithe is legit and submit, or error out because tithe amount, coin age, or coin_min_amount is not met.

i also seem to be able to select a 300 input and tithe 290. when done automatically, qt wallet wants to select a bigger input amount. is an input of 300, a legal tithe when the automated way wants mincoinvalue of 500?
Good point.

I made a change where 'exec tithe amount' will honor the current diff level if you only specify the amount.

Regarding the min_coin_amount that is actually a bug in 1163, and is fixed in 1164 (building now).  I believe it is the source of a few issues for us.

I also removed the 2nd address you pointed out in exec pogpool.

Great job Jaap, thanks for completing the coinexchange mission and for making a great web site.

Production Proposals / January recurring payment for Kairos Children's Fund
« Last post by AndrewScribner on December 11, 2018, 12:51:11 pm »
Most of you are familiar with Kairos Children's Fund already. Biblepay is supporting 10 of the Kairos kids at the moment. We are a charity in the Philippines sponsoring children's education.  The money we receive goes to prepay for the next month.

I am requesting 750,000 BBP, which at the current rate is $260 (as of Dec 12). This will be enough to support these children for another month, but not much else besides their bare allowances (unless the rate goes up). The money will be used for their transportation, lunch, projects, and school fees. The families will also be given a monthly 'rice allowance'.

In December, the exchange was about the same, and we traded $230, which was enough to cover the allowances but nothing more. Our prayer is that Biblepay will do better and that more people will decide to sponsor directly.

The monthly amount per child is $20 for elementary students or $22 for high school students. We have 5 elementary and 5 high school students at the moment with Biblepay, so the cost is $200 per month. You can see the details below or on the website.
Check out our facebook page or website for information and updates...

We are not supposed to have any dependencies on dash.org. It must be some remnant left behind on the contrib/depends files. But this didn't show up on mainnet PPA, and nothing has changed about that on 1.1.6.3 from 1.1.6.1.

I'll check it.

Odd...  I removed the dashd repo and it lets me install.
