    Pre-Proposal: Prioritized Projects Wish List

    I am emailing with Ryan and will talk with him on Wednesday, but like @Chadrick suggests, I have been assuming they are stakeholders, not gatekeepers. I believe based on feedback that this would be helpful for future entrepreneurs coming into the community and potentially interested in writing...

    Pre-Proposal: Prioritized Projects Wish List

    Interested to hear how this loop is closed in this case and in general. Good ideas and a non-trivial amount of work to support it. But I still love your concept of putting your Dash where your mouth is. Especially at a larger scale than today, it would be very cool. Maybe MN's still vote but...

    Reduction in proposal fee to 1 Dash (Pre-Proposal)

    Doing something that will stand the test of time would be good. What about making the proposal fee proportional to the amount being requested, with 1 DASH indexed to a 50 DASH proposal (or some #)? For this example, that would be 2%. Then more expensive proposals would cost more to make (maybe...

    Pre-Proposal: Prioritized Projects Wish List

    Thanks, paragon, I appreciate your support. I agree there are a lot of moving parts here. Simplify/tweak/refine sounds great! I hope some of those Dash team members will engage on this and I'm happy to email/skype/whatever to get it done. And it makes sense to wait for next budget cycle.

    Pre-Proposal: Prioritized Projects Wish List

    This isn't to learn about proposals, but to help entrepreneurs figure out what to propose. Let's say the most high-impact thing that could be done was building libraries in C#, perl, and javascript, but proposals always came in for ATM machines and meetups. This would be a way to clarify that...

    Pre-Proposal: Prioritized Projects Wish List

    That's one step I forgot to list: selecting the tool for the idea collection and voting. Trello card voting is one to check out, another is dotstorming.com. Re. privacy, tough not being able to collect an email as I expect there to be some communication necessary with participants. I guess it...

    Pre-Proposal: Prioritized Projects Wish List

    Nice ideas, Chadrick. We could certainly test both ways in two iterations. I am worried about noise/spam. Great idea about votes in form of funding proposal fee, though then you have to think about how that gets claimed, what if there are 2+ parties that want to propose and use the fee, etc...

    Pre-Proposal: Prioritized Projects Wish List

    This would not replace the proposals process; rather, it would generate a list of prioritized ideas that people could use to guide them in coming up with proposals. If it worked well, the top priority things might see multiple proposals in a given round, which would be cool. It could also have...

    Sentinel run test passed = No

    Chaeplin, what does Sentinel Run Test Passed: No mean?

    Sentinel run test passed = No

    I also tried: dashman install sentinel dashman restart now But didn't help.

    Sentinel run test passed = No

    Getting the same thing from dashman status after upgrade just now. I tried running "./venv/bin/py.test ./test" from Chaeplin's suggestion link but don't have that directory anywhere. also concerning: "IsSynced": false, full output: hostname : (removed) host...

    Head's up: A lot of masternodes have "NEW_START_REQUIRED" as their status

    Thank you, thank you, AJM! Glad that I didn't restart. All clear now. I read in a related thread about DDOS protection. I have vultr.com hosting at $5/mo level. Is there any need for DDOS protection? how commonly are people getting that for their nodes?

    Head's up: A lot of masternodes have "NEW_START_REQUIRED" as their status

    I'm seeing NEW_START_REQUIRED in Dash Core wallet app, but dash central and linux nodes report status as fine. Do I need to remove those files or wait for wallet to catch up or what? Thanks for any tips on this.

    March 2017 Budget Report

    Nice update, thanks. I agree with halso about strategic update of the foundation board. Also, am wondering about your engineering hiring practices, since that is now likely to be a major bottleneck to growth. How many developers do you have, and how many dev managers? Are the dev managers...
