Here are some things I humbly suggest we need to get underway. Feel free to add to them!

1. Android wallet!
2. Consolidate new branding across all sites / forums / exchanges / whatever, get it out there.
3. Improve on the qt wallet by making it possible to import from paper wallets without typing stuff into scary consoles.
4. Devs: BETTER COMMS - keep community in loop, and everyone else, with regular updates. Just a line or two a day would be great. We can ALL take that and plaster the web with it.
5. Make sure we keep all posts on bitcointalk positive, friendly, helpful, it's how newbies often discover DRK.

coins101s post here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=579976.msg6335710#msg6335710 is a great example of getting the message out. (Although in my opinion he needs careful supervision...) ;)

In my opinion, the most important point is n.2, then n.4.
We should all state the relevant features of Dark around the web, so that most of Scrypt gpu miners will switch to Darkcoin when Scrypt ASIC will arrive

0. Multipool that pays DRK
I've been looking at this and the individual bits are all out there, they just need stitching together. I haven't coded for 15 years but I could chuck something together that would work (for me and my rigs certainly anyway) in a day or two. Fancy front end though... would take me considerably longer.

The CoinCatcher multipool is simple and beautiful, lightyears ahead of for example TMB in clean design, and only has 40 odd current users. I have asked hime if he'd consider DRK payouts.

http://www.reddit.com/user/coincatcher if anyone else wants to show him some interest...

Thought of something else privacy-related:

At the moment anyone can fire up my wallet and see where I've sent money to, DarkSend or not. Which is a bit of a gaping hole in the whole privacy thing.

Could the wallet
a) Require a passphrase on startup
b) Additionally require a passphrase to show actual DRK addresses when contacts are selected

I'm also in touch with a pool operator who is considering doing a DRK multipool, but this again could take weeks.

Please no more mud-slinging and spite - it causes massive damage

There are some things missing on the first page of Bitcointalk,
Pools: missing darkcointalk pool :eek:
Exchanges: Bitfinex :what:
Other tools: Darkcoin Wiki / FAQ

those are the ones I can think of right now

I love the idea of the DRK support in Electrum I read on another thread. Would anyone be interested in pooling a few DRK together as an incentive to get someone to do this?

I'm willing to convert my BTC paying multipool to DRK.

Let me know if there is any interest in it the address is xpool.ca

Ok, it's something I'm really considering.

If other's are interested, raise your hand.

If I have time tonight I will make the switch. I will need to end my current BTC shifts early and pay them out, then make the switch.

I've switched the pool over to payout in DRK!

Happy to have some miners jump on. I have sha256, scrypt and x11 ports open for hashing

xpool.ca
