last signs of life .....

I'm wondering what these witnesses' VPS specs are.

OK so are we ready to coordinate and establish a new checkpoint?

Has that already been done?

If not I think we should set a time identify whose block will be the first one in the new checkpoint, and then we can setup new seed nodes.

I am trying to reset locally.  If I can I will post directions.  Although if we leave allowed missed blocks at 1000 the network wont last long.

will try to catch up if there is a way

Thanks puppies, it works now!

Can someone send me some CORE for the account upgrade? Thanks in advance :)

With the network down, there's no way to send it.

I have a registered witness, but I'm not yet voted in: 'bitspace-testaccount1'. Is there anything I can do to help?

I can check back here every half hour or so today.

After updating from test4 to test5, I get this when I try to run che cli
"Chain ID in wallet file does not match specified chain ID"

What should I do?

Dan explained it early in the first test net thread.  The issue we will have is that without the unit witnesses we will crash again quickly. 

We could do a dirty hack and increase the allowed missed blocks as well, but that might not be the best idea.

Actually there is a trick to restarting block production after so much time has passed.

First add a the following checkpoint

[HEADNUM+1, "00000000.....00"]

With that checkpoint you will be able to produce the next block.   Once you have produced the block, other nodes can add a checkpoint with that freshly produced block and you will be up and running again.

Every time a checkpoint is reached it resets the required undo history to 0.  Adding a checkpoint at HEADNUM will reset it to 0, but the next block you produce will have missed over 1000 blocks so is immediately beyond the reach.  Therefore, we need to "checkpoint" the "next block" for which we do not know the ID yet.

Can't we restart the network with checkpoints instead of waiting for bm to do it?  I'm assuming the stress testing just delayed some nodes' block production and caused forking until no branch had minimum participation.

Sounds reasonable, so how do you determine a correct checkpoint parameter value to use in the config.ini file? I have several VPSs ready to go that will serve as a seed once that is determined.

I'm not sure, but I think we need all witnesses to add this checkpoint to their config files: ["36472", "00008e780f52da8c7a599c3a1d0b8dfeaf3a331d"]

Then we probably need one person to enable stale production, and then it's possible that everyone will need to additionally add the first new block on the stale chain as a checkpoint.

Regardless, this is something we need to test and figure out how to do now on the test network.  We shouldn't plan on being totally reliant on bm to fix it if anything breaks.

Yes, I think this is the problem, but how to do that? If we use --enable-stale-production every one create own fork, so we need a way to coordinate witness but I don't know how
