    Good Good cheers.

    I'll hunt down and find the old .html pages and redirect them to their new appropriate locations. (Suggestions would be helpful)

    I'll fix the darkcoin logo link to the homepage.

    The video?. To remove or not to remove, I don't know who should have say over this.

    Anything esle?

    Much I can't do until FTP access is granted.

    Concerning the old .html pages, I think that the highest priority is to redirect the links that are still on the OP of the ANN thread.
    like :
    https://www.darkcoin.io/downloads/InstantTX.pdf
    http://www.darkcoin.io/downloads/DarkcoinWhitepaper.pdf
    http://www.darkcoin.io/downloads/DarkcoinPRStatement.pdf
    etc.

    Well as the author of the video I would vote: remove. I never intented to create a promotional video explaining stuff to the world, rather I created a techy-demonstration on how to use darksend in broken english ;)

    If we can get some unicorns, some music and maybe a good native english voice-over, i'd vote: keep.

    Something liek that:

    Looks good cheers. I guess Evan accidentally wiped these when he moved over the new site. There is no reason these can't still be located in their original location.

    The media.html etc, should be redirected to their new pages.

    If nobody else is doing it, I'd like to create a video explaining Darkcoin. I'll aim to have the completed by tomorrow night uk time.

    I feel we need to have something that speaks to the masses and not just us geeks. Once we've created a general video about Darkcoin we can go on to create a series about using the wallet, security, merchants etc

    If somebody else has already started to create a video please let me know.

    mattmct it is also working for me now. I guess the cache plugin must have had something to do.

    vertoe I'll replace the video with an image of the wallet. Anyway, tomorrow the first slide should be about going open source, so it would not have been so visible.

    dazman That would be great, there are a few thread in this forum about that if you want to look for ideas or ask for help, but I think most things were merged to this one:
    https://darkcointalk.org/threads/darkcoin-video.333/

    EDIT: mattmct not everything working, the unicode icons still fail when I use Firefox, they are part of the theme, so I guess it is because they are being served using http

    An animation like that one with a good voiceover could be good to explain what is Darkcoin and how Darksend works.

    Nice. Hopefully people can calm down now ;).

    Nice fernando . We're squashing these bugs nicely.

    The missing files and redirects will be an easy fix once we have FTP access.

    That's the sort of thing I was thinking of. Obviously we can't make it to close to the Bitcoin video but it will have the same 2d informational style.

    Ok, with such a tight deadline I better get on with writing a script and basic storyboard. I think it's important to initially make a basic video by tomorrow night explaining the basics of Darkcoin and then we can expand on it afterwards. But we need something on the site for Tuesday when all the PR is released.

    Yeah, and Evan will be around any time soon for that. One thing I know for sure, there is no single day in which he is not around.

    I would suggest something else than the "D" (and less pixelated) to illustrate the "Mandatory Update to RC5" something more like this :

    i checked the website and "where to spend" section is empty :\

    I also noticed that under home->resources->merchant tools->payment processors there is a problem with images not shown.

    and home->resources->merchant tools->success cases is empty also :\

    Hi guys,

    The 'Download PDF' link at the bottom of this news page is linking to a missing file.
