    I just emailed the
    Mac Wallet Installation Guide
    to flare
    as this is such a pain to upload it to the thread with the images in order and such, i asked him to get it up there,
    he for sure has a way to do it (as always)

    I left the sig / checksum section open, as that seems very complicate and i am not sure if that is necessary as it might 'scare' people off !?
    You tell me, i am happy to put it in (faire and raze) gave me all the details.

    My main theory is that you are a group of people split between Unimatrix Zero One, Berlin, Teheran and asdf. That would explain the amount of posts, the capacity to manage so much masternodes and the lack of coherent personal details :)

    That, or you love leaving conflicting traces around because you value your privacy. This one is not very coherent with being interested in an anonymous coin, so my bet is the other one!

    Indeed Vertoe is here because of the privacy so let him/her be where and who wants :)
    Managing >54 MNs it is even better to have more privacy, when, what, where, who etc etc never mind....don`t you think?

    Absolutely! I really believe that with Darkcoin we are helping people be more free to do whatever they want. If something doesn't affect, it's not my business!

    NEW LIST (#6)
    9th Sep

    In work:

    1.
    New website (.io)is to be completed with all information updated.
    - i am in contact with (verteo and others) them and they are working on it, looks all great and should be ready in time.
    - David (new writer) is in touch with @verteo / PC Wallet Installation Guide Done
    - MAC Wallet version done
    - We still need a LINUX Wallet Installation Guide !!!
    -
    Want to get involved, check the Thread
    https://darkcointalk.org/threads/darkcoin-io-website-overhaul.1874/


    3. New Wallets out and running solid
    - DRKLord is pretty sick and maybe even in hospital as Evan stated yesterday ! (hope he will be ok and gets better soon)
    eduffield, Today at 1:03 AM
    “I haven't heard for DRKLord in awhile, however I heard he's really ill. I'll reach out to him and made sure he's OK.”
    Is there any update of DRKLord ???
    - To get the full wallet version (as it was posted some months ago), we need a QT Developer! (That was DRKLord)
    - The rest of the team is working hard on technical parts which are needed anyway (QT or not) so ether or (pretty or not) the wallet will be up and running ! which is great news !
    - QT Developer, if anybody out there is capable of QT Developing please contact vertoe or Minotaur
    https://darkcointalk.org/threads/enhanced-darkcoin-wallet-ui.1705/

    4. Darkcoin Foundation with mission statement ready to go.
    - fernando (as expected) is on top of things:
    “We are doing all the paperwork for the incorporation of the foundation and preparing the internals. We'll have the bylaws and mission statement very soon.”
    https://darkcointalk.org/threads/darkcoin-foundation.2198/#post-18444

    6. Kristov Atlas review and any findings re-mediated and verified by Kristov
    (he is in touch with Evan direct))
    - last update was 7th Sep
    K Atlas comment's on "paper analyzing DarkSend+'s design"….>
    https://darkcointalk.org/threads/k-atlas-comments-on-paper-analyzing-darksend-s-design.2295/



    To do:

    2. Update EVERYTHING !
    (double check all pages drktalk, btctalk, Wiki,.... that really all the newest versions and updates are in place) for now RC4 .... RC5 we worry about when it comes
    - tungfa will look into this as I have a bunch of log in's already
    - started with the some (FB and such … and am making progress further)

    5. All bugs resolved and testing community is in sync to verify that everyone is happy. WE NEED A PERIOD OF NO CHANGES/UPDATES AND STABILITY IN TESTNET & or Pilot mainnet users before releasing to the general public. (fingers crossed)

    - RC5 is on Testnet, please support !!
    https://darkcointalk.org/threads/get-back-on-testnet.2240/#post-18841

    7. Official documentation explaining how to use darksend+ in a proper PDF and on new website.
    - The new webpage will have a whole section of how to / what / where, it is still under development and content has to be written.
    -TanteStefana already gave us permission to use her great Darksend tutorial in the new website. We need to do some updating and editing (the wallet has changed a bit in the last couple versions), but it will be there.” from fernando
    - if there are any writers around please get in touch with this thread regarding writing content
    - David (new writer) is in touch with @verteo
    https://darkcointalk.org/threads/darkcoin-io-website-overhaul.1874/

    8. Official press release statements ready for PRWeb, Wired, Coindesk etc.
    This is something we should hear about from the Dev Team, what/when there thoughts are on this !!
    - i have not hear from any Dev team regarding this, i might approach fernando by message and see if there is anything we should do



    9. Give prior warning and enough time for all Pools / MN Operators to update.
    - There is a pool police in place yidakee and splawik21 !
    They got the word from us if they need any help. They are still ‘hunting’ polls regarding RC3-4, so this might not be as easy as it sounds to convert (by warning) pool sot RC5 (warning or not)

    Important (but anytime):

    10.Open Bazaar Integration
    As i mentioned in an earlier post (nobody replied) i believe a DRK integration on Open Bazaar is super important !!!
    As we need actual Merchants adoption, OB would be the perfect starting point (and test net for us).
    OB is in Beta 1. (please join the test net) and open source. Follow the thread bellow to check it out or give a helping hand to the crew over there !!
    https://darkcointalk.org/threads/open-bazaar-integration.2045/
    here some background for OB
    http://www.wired.com/2014/08/openbazaar-not-for-drugs/

    We still need:

    - QT/ C++ Developer

    - We still need a LINUX Wallet Installation Guide !!! (Writer)

    Please let us know if you wanna join in or have any recommendations
    Tx

    Other Tips for this list,

    I already posted this, but the communityh had been growing so kindly allow me to repeat my 2 cents, tweaked just a bit:

    Visibility is everything, so say:

    - TanteStefana and / or David (a new writer) start from the start (articles about Darkcoin origins, DarkSend, "How to... " buy / trade / invest;
    - fernando or someone good with this creates a simple animation video, explaining the same in a more visual way;
    - another video, more sophisticated may be in place as well;
    - get transcripts for these videos; https://www.speechpad.com/ $1.00 for a minute and post it in a blog;
    - SYNDICATE all content (Twitter, FB, blog) and use all RSS feeds. Point in case, Review Outlaw has a video on mining Darkcoin here:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNpEmo3y0VQ so his channel is @ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOvN3fb1NyriX4SVgVj02SA so his RSS feed is @
    https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/reviewoutlaw/uploads

    Ping all that to all RSS syndication services. Transcripts as well. Tweet them;

    - See could Twitter / FB API alow syndicating this Forum posts, or at least, the developer's updates;
    - Figure out how to get Evan and Ape to be guests on Max Keiser show (just ask him - PRIVACY is the key);
    - if not, interview him for Darkcoins own YT channel.

    Syndicate;

    - "anarchy is to act like you're already free" so get in touch with David Graeber, an anarchist and a professor, but also the author of Debt: The First Five Thousand Years so he knows about money and he would have something to say about cryptocurrency through historical, sociological, philosophical angle;
    - Syndicate;
    - try to do the same with Reggie Middleton of boombustblog - he's big on crypto and is working on his own exchange;
    - Syndicate;
    - Someone else, write a "freedom essay" (Darkcoin Manifesto) on why is crypto so important? Why Darkcoin. Difference in between anonymity and privacy issue. We're all enslaved by The Financial Crime Cartel and its shenanigans (crimes) and this could be the first real movement in human history that would liberate us from the institutionalized chains of death, destruction and debt, their modus operanda.

    WEEKLY Q&A with Evan (and Ape and some other developer) - perhaps as a LIVE CHAT was the best idea thus far - sorry, but for a live in me at the moment I can't recall whose idea it was - so that could be an hour or so live transmissions with the community, investors, journalists, bloggers etc, participating (or just a host, one of the guys here, or from the Foundation) that would boost both the visibility and interest.

    Bottom line. Spread the word as much as you can. And try to also focus on "influencers" like Max, David, Reggie...

    This looks great. If you need help on the editing or (professional) writing side do let me know. I'm already writing a long series on the history of Darkcoin thus far and think my core skills here might be in creating material that spreads beyond the tech details. It is imperative that the innovations can be explained in a handful of lines which should, in turn, be repeated on any media appearances.

    Looking for a curator of the Darkcoin Collection on Coin Academy to add information on Darkcoin.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Coin Academy is free for educational purposes. If you would like to help write for Darkcoin, submit a contribution http://coinacademy.co/contributor-submission/
    "What does it cost to use Coin Academy?
    Nothing. Zero. Zip. Zilch. It’s all free, all the time. We hope to keep it that way, but we would very much appreciate it if you would consider a donation to help us cover our overhead."

    This is something we should hear about from the Dev Team, what/when there thoughts are on this !!
    - I checked in with Fernando what he thinks, and sure we are a bit ahead of ourself here. Nothing to write or report yet as RC5 is still in development stage. He will keep me posted when could be a good time to start writing something up, and then we send a writer over there.

    9. Give prior warning and enough time for all Pools / MN Operators to update.
    - There is a pool police in place yidakee and splawik21 !
    They got the word from us if they need any help. They are still ‘hunting’ polls regarding RC3-4, so this might not be as easy as it sounds to convert (by warning) pool sot RC5 (warning or not)

    https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/reviewoutlaw/uploads
    There was talk about making a new video/or different versions, Icebucket was on it, we gotta follow up with this thread:
    https://darkcointalk.org/threads/darkcoin-video.333/page-6#post-18506

    12. Someone else, write a "freedom essay" (Darkcoin Manifesto) on why is crypto so important? Why Darkcoin. Difference in between anonymity and privacy issue. We're all enslaved by The Financial Crime Cartel and its shenanigans (crimes) and this could be the first real movement in human history that would liberate us from the institutionalized chains of death, destruction and debt, their modus operanda.
    I think this is a very good point and would be great to have for DRK and the Community !!! not easy to write, as there will be many different opinions, but somebody could get on this !!!??

    After RC 5 (there are some great ideas coming here/ we probably have to check with Dev Team what they think of this !!)

    13. Figure out how to get Evan and Ape to be guests on Max Keiser show (just ask him - PRIVACY is the key);
    - if not, interview him for Darkcoins own YT channel.
    Definitely !! Max Keiser is great (i think) , he bought DRK's himself and would be definitely up for that !!

    14.
    WEEKLY Q&A with Evan
    (and Ape and some other developer) - perhaps as a LIVE CHAT was the best idea thus far - sorry, but for a live in me at the moment I can't recall whose idea it was - so that could be an hour or so live transmissions with the community, investors, journalists, bloggers etc, participating (or just a host, one of the guys here, or from the Foundation) that would boost both the visibility and interest.

    I believe the release date (22nd) of RC 5 just put this Thread out of business !
    Hopefully a lot of things will be done by or shortly after RC 5
    Fingers crossed !

    I do QT but not C++, sorry.

    And maybe I'm missing something but why would anyone need a linux wallet installation guide beyond, "Download, make executable, run... ?"
