    Pre-Proposal: Would you like this proof of individuality to be implemented in Dash?

    I'm not totally sold, but I like the overall idea...I think a proof of individuality that protects anonymity is also something I read someone was trying to work on for crypto, without real world meetings. But until something like that comes along (and I have no idea what that would entail, as a...

    Hi all! It was brought to my attention some time ago that one of my evidence posts was missing. I'm here to start fixing that now. I apologize for the mistake, which was mine individually. I posted all the rest of it over that day and night, and on one of them I must have not hit "post" or...

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    Alright all...the party is over, and it was a giant success! The pour is coming this week, for sure, before the deadline, and many people have stayed to help! We have rebar laid to show, and I have many things to report: 1. We will be organizing the evidence of purchases and work done in a neat...

    Oh, and here is the coping that was bent...and even larger radius so the Dash sign on it will, as mentioned before, be bigger than originally planned :)

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    Receipt from coping bending... The pour date was stalled due to on and off again rain on Wednesday...we had time, so didn't want to chance it. We are still in plenty of time to pour before the July 1st deadline. :)

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    It is approved, but we haven't received any payments yet. And sorry for the confusion, but that other site is where you submit and track proposals, and this is where you discuss them, mostly, so we linked back here from there.

    Still waiting on Pickers...but we've been busy otherwise: The 6 Dash how-to panels for the flipchart on tripod: The summary DIY board that posts next to vendor QR code signs/stickers...these are free, we added this to the project free of cost! There will be at least 2 of them (we may...

    It is ESPN the magazine coming; journalist/photographer. Rebar largely bent. Coping bent one last time tomorrow, then welded into the rest of the welded coping.

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    It's ESPN magazine, and from our understanding, it will be a journalist and photographer. No update yet on American Pickers.

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    Moar detail? They called a long time ago, he called them back, they couldn't agree on some cost, so he called them back and waived that part of the deal, so at least one journalist is coming. Not sure if it is for the magazine or cable. When I know more, you will know more.

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    We have two announcements: 1. There will be a retaining wall, brick, facing out over the hill into the heart of the park. This is the farthest end of the new Dash Expansion. We were going to bury it originally, but we thought we'd paint a large Dash three-tiered symbol similar to the others on...

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    We have decided to hang 3 of the 6 large signs/banners spread throughout the park that say "sponsored by Dash, digital cash, www.dash.org" in the three row design ON THE THREE STAGES where all of our, as of now, at least 35 bands will play. All filming of bands will give Dash some film time :)...

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    Brewce was on the phone with the guy's wife from the show...I'm not a fan, so I don't know...if you said her name, I'd know it, because I was right there laughing while Brewce sold her hard for 45 mins. They emailed Brandon and he sent them a picture set of things they might be interested in...

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    If we can get any positive attention, we will! This is an annual event now for 22 years, and well known. Pictures are coming of all the rebar work we've been doing, tools we bought, etc. People have begun showing up early to camp out, so things are ramping up. We never turn down positive press...

    And because Amanda asked me over at Dash Central, let me make it clear we have new cell towers somewhat near the park, and you can get phone service in specific hot spots, and the wifi for internet works in more places actually. The vendor area of course is one area where things work. It's 88...

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    Thanks! We will have more updates soon...we did some surveying yesterday, and have pics, we just haven't had time to sit down and put them online yet. I'd do it now, but they aren't on my phone.

    Alt festivals the perfect venue for Dash

    I obviously agree places like ours are a great way to spread the word and to start the virtuous cycle. And not just us, but every partner we deal with, our home area, etc. These kinds of events can radiate the expansion process outward, using their location as a center point. That's what we plan...

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    Hi all, We have some progress to report. Keep in mind most of this project cannot be done until the event. However, some can be done beforehand, and here is what we were busy doing so far... This is the main area on the back side of the Dash Expansion, where it ends and the hill begins down...

    We will be releasing the list of bands playing at the stage right across from the Dash Expansion later this week. We're also doing a skate competition in the area as well, and of course will film as much of it as possible. Who's an appreciative recipient of a sponsorship? We are :) "Brandon...

    Proposal: The Dash Expansion at Skatopia

    We will keep that in mind for future reference. Thanks for the heads up, lynx. I actually linked Dash Central to here. I should have cross-linked. I wasn't aware of the rest being pretty standard. Our next proposals will reflect your advice. EDIT: The reason I am not changing this proposal is...
