Since launching masternode payments the network has kept randomly
forking. We're not exactly sure what is the cause, but to stop this
and restore stability we are going to fork to remove masternode
payments.

This fork will go into effect Tuesday at 19:00 GMT. Sorry for the
short notice, but this is an emergency fork.

Is this 10.8.9 / 9.4.9? Are the binaries up?

edit: binaries for the qt I mean, I already got my darkcoind on 10.8.9.

Okay, do you need me to actually run a masternode? I'm pooped, but if running a masternode with this version helps stabilize the network, I'll do it :)

@evan, i suggest we do a mass testing on testnet. with at least 5-6 active pools and p2pool and stuff.
In theory everything was looking good but the hardfork showed like nothing really worked as expected.

I'm no expert but maybe it was because everybody on testnet, was disciplined and had the latest version. In the real world (mainnet) it's something else : between the laziness, those who don't see the update info and those who purposely want to create havoc ...

Ok, as soon as I can get compiled versions, I can go testnet ASAP

Holy shit Evan... I sent to Mintpal, they had 2 confirmed tx until they locked-out....
Since the tx is on the blockchain unclaimed, am I correct to suppose they're safe once Mintpal re-opens?

I had checked the x-id before, but for some reason Mac QT 0.9.4.6 appends "-000" to it when right-click-copy over the field, has 36 confirms, so when I copied that to the official explorer and was not found, almost had a hear attack...

Holy shit Evan... I sent to Mintpal, they had 2 confirmed tx until they locked.... official block explorer confirmed this, and now its not showing up!!
first I sent 0.1 to test, all ok, then I sent a chunck ... same thing! I tested the tx id on the block explorer and tehy were there!
Oh pleeeeease tell me what to do !! i can no longer find the tx in the explorer, it was there before, unclaimed, I saw it before the 2 confirms on Mintpal...
Oh god, please someone prevent me a heart-attack

Mac 0.9.4.6 says 36 confirms and I now check its stuck on
"blocks" : 75156, ... current it 75184

I have 36 confirms on the QT, and Mintpal took forever but eventually had pending with 2 confirms... I am safe right?
WHY then can I not find the tx on the explorer?
First breathe. Ok, once the blockchian gets sorted, there are only two possibilites: #1) the coins are safely in the mintpal wallet, or #2) the coins are safely in your wallet. There is no way to lose them mate, you just have to be patient :)

I know most of you are half way round the world from Arkansas, but I'm drinking heavily and you're all welcome to come over! :what: Some of you guys have busted your asses and I'll be more than happy to buy u a drink!
I'll second that. I'm in VT and I'd buy any of the devs here a drink right now.

Yeah, I got freaked by the QT appending -000 for some reason (probably a simple techy feature when it un-syncs?), but the actual tx is is identical to Mintpal, and that does show up perfectly its on the blockchain, just waiting for them to re-open market...

Love you Instacash, despite my recent near-death experience :tongue:

Instacash is a HUGE asset to Darkcoin right now... seriously, if you're on a Mac, you're a total douche if you don´t tip him, he's flying solo!

Agreed, he's great!

I'm too lazy to go east to Arkansas, but I'm lifting my Diet Coke in a Prost to all of you die hards! (as there's no beer in the house at the moment, Sh*#)

Wait, what, why are you sending DRK to mintpal?

Let me teach you one thing: buy low, sell high. Now is the time to send BTC to mintpal :)

Do we know anything about this? If we run them they may fork again and the shit never clears. If we don't maybe we are doing some harm also... I'm sorry if this has been said somewhere else, I'm just back from a day on the road. In the morning I was happy because I was getting paid (in one of my MNs twice!!). In the afternoon I was seen everything go mad from a train with a poor connection in my phone. I've been reading/posting as much as possible, but I'm quite behind. My MNs are reindexing now and it is going fast.
