    Issues with Masternode Payments Fork

    Votes don't seem to be happening, at least that appears to be why only a fraction of blocks are paying masternodes.

    Update to 0.9.4.4 or 0.10.8.4 to prepare for the hardfork on May 25!

    According to Evan, if you update to 10.8.6, delete peers.dat, wait 10 min & restart the client & masternode, you should be ok. The "ProcessMessage(dsee, 175 bytes) FAILED" errors are apparently due to other masternodes on the network that are still running the old version.

    Update to 0.9.4.4 or 0.10.8.4 to prepare for the hardfork on May 25!

    Same here. And I'm seeing a lot of these error messages in the log, not sure if related: ProcessMessage(dsee, 175 bytes) FAILED

    New version 9.4.0 and 10.8.0

    Nice work! Question about voting: What proportion of votes are required to mess with payments? I.e. does it go to the majority vote, meaning an attacker would need 51% of masternodes to hijack masternode payments?

    New Style!

    Really nice. Who designed it?

    Cult of Evan?

    Well shit, I liked your suggestions. I guess your idea of using "holacratic techniques" might have been far enough left field that it short-circuited some neurons in poor yidakee here. In any case, it's great that you are making constructive contributions. I think Darkcoin has far outgrown a...

    New DRK website

    Mannie, did you grab the existing written copy from Evan? We had someone who wrote quite a bit and it's not all up on the darkcoin.us/io site. If you want I can share the docs with you (PM me your email addy).

    Clever Idea from HiroCoin

    I think you're thinking about this from a miner's perspective, where hashrate of the network correlates with interest. Far more people are watching the price, so if popularity & price rises due to a multipool that pays out in DRK, any drop in hashrate will have a negligible effect on public...

    Will Masternodes be safe ?

    The threats from insecure masternodes are: - potential theft of the masternode's wallet - masternode being compromised by an attacker (e.g. backdoor installed), and used to mount attacks on the network The kinds of attacks on the network from compromised masternodes include denial-of-service...

    Clever Idea from HiroCoin

    I can only see good things from a multipool that pays out in DRK. It would create a dynamic where a proportion of miners move to the scrypt pool until darkcoin diff drops enough for it to become profitable to mine directly, and an equilibrium would form. - More people getting invested in DRK...

    Darkcoin marketing role

    I'm stepping down from my role in the Darkcoin team, which means I'll be passing on this marketing/branding effort to the community & the devs. I wish you the best of luck with it! I'd planned that next steps would involve selecting a colour palette, then writing a branding guide, then getting...

    Blue vs B&W Logo

    It's hard to know what a given palette will look like until it's in context. We will probably need some mockups to make the decision properly. The palette might look saturated here but on website they may be used as secondary/tertiary colours for a tiny fraction of screen space, meaning they're...

    Blue vs B&W Logo

    Yeah, I mean I figured discussion of the full colour palette for the branding guide would come after logo selection. But there's no reason in principle why we can't talk about it now. I'll have a play with palettes and see what might look good with this particular blue. Also, fwiw I don't like...

    Blue vs B&W Logo

    Personally I really like the lighter shade in the OP. The other kinds of blue are over-represented in the market, and this one looks fresh & modern to me.

    Blue vs B&W Logo

    If the blue logo wins, a vote for the exact shade of blue can happen after this one.

    Blue vs B&W Logo

    An official logo needs to be static, unique, instantly recognisable. No company is going to dilute their brand by creating multiple official versions of their logo with completely different palettes. There's still scope for unofficial variations, or variations for a specific promotion, things...

    Blue vs B&W Logo

    @Kai Reason 1: I seriously doubt anyone wants an elimination tournament, which is the only fair way to conduct such a vote. It would take 1-2 weeks just to complete the polls, and in all likelihood the final would end up with these two up against each other. Reason 2: A number of those colour...

    Blue vs B&W Logo

    I don't think this is rushed -- we've been considering this logo and its variants for some time, several variants have been proposed, and these two have remained clearly above the pack. That's a good thing -- it means we're narrowing down our collective preferences. Honestly we could deliberate...

    I'm reducing this to a simple binary vote. Poll closes in 48 hrs. Candidates are: 1. 2.

    I think the logo looks much better on the coin if it's scaled down & placed to the left a bit so its "centre of gravity" is in the middle. Like this:

    Official logo vote

    So far it's just the blue variant that's been submitted, so if nothing else is submitted soon I'll make a poll to decide between the b&w and the blue version.

    Official logo vote

    I like the blue version too. To me it feels a bit "off" too. Sort of unbalanced in terms of its size & placement on the coin. I suspect it could be tweaked so that it looks more natural.

    Damn, I thought it was pretty good. I guess it could do with some shiny sparkles, maybe some love hearts? *back to the drawing board*

    I'd be interested to see a red version, if someone with more design ability than me wants to create some mockups. Not many coin logos are predominantly red, and it draws the eye.

    Official logo vote

    I stated clearly in the poll OP that a vote did not represent the exact variant on display; it represented all variants on that design. This was to ensure the vote was fair (i.e. so votes for a design weren't split amongst all its variants), and to ensure there was scope to make modifications as...

    Official logo vote

    FWIW the colour palette needs to be discussed anyway, whether or not the b&w logo is chosen. This is to determine the set of colours that all darkcoin-branded media can use, for consistency & to establish our visual identity. Consider how the website would look if the only allowed colours were...

    Official logo vote

    The designer only submitted the b&w version. My suggestion would be to generate a series of colour variations and had a vote -- that way we aren't just defaulting to the only colour version that anybody's seen.

    Ok, so I've selected the winning design on designcrowd. Now we have 7 days to request any revisions from the designer. Do we have any revisions we'd like to see (i.e. that we couldn't easily do ourselves)?

    Nobody has used ducks yet. I say we roll with it and rebrand -- Duckcoin: With Ducksend & DuckGravityPond.

    I expect there will be a window of time during which the selected logo can be modified & tweaked. We will own the copyright on it after all. Then we could have another vote for the best version and go from there.

    No worries! I'm glad the crowdsourced option produced some designs that people like. I hope we can move forward with branding and create a kickass website to go along with the chosen logo.
