Make Functionality of the Full Wallet a Priorty?
« on: December 28, 2014, 04:23:38 AM »

As an early adopter (I've been into PTS>BitShares for over a year) I am having a seriously hard time being an early adopter (that sentence was not a typo). I have been trying to sync my newly updated wallet for over a day now to send my friend BitShares that I bought for him. I know from past experience that eventually I will get it synced, but this is unacceptable. Disclaimer: I am computer literate, the software really doesn't work well.

In addition to just being annoying, this is actually detrimental. Why? Because if early adopters (the critical main user base, I'm sure you know the concept already) can barely use the software even if they really want to, you will have less people spreading the word, as well as less people providing precious liquidity.

I know the light wallet is supposed to be fast and easy and bla bla, but my theory is that a significant portion of early adopters (as opposed to the general public that the light wallet targets) want the full functionality and security of the full wallet. I know I do.

Bitcoin's QT wallet wasn't pretty, but at least it worked.

Sorry if this sounded aggressive, I don't want to retype it. I meant it to be a call for discussion on the proposed theory of the priority of the full wallet as opposed to the light wallet. Curious to hear your thoughts.

I'd recommend reviewing Bytemaster's latest mumble session, he talked about wallets in detail.

You're welcome. I only know this because I listened to it an hour ago. :)

Thanks again. Listening to it now/tomorrow maybe.

By the way in case anyone else has problems, my wallet just finished syncing. My problems were resolved after deleting everything but the wallet folder from C:\Users\"Username"\AppData\Roaming\Bitshares

AFTER BACKING UP OF COURSE!!!

For Devs: before I did this I experienced severe intermittent connectivity issues as well as, later on, the error:(paraphrased) an instance of bitshares is already running. It was not. The other thread about this helped me solve my problem, thanks to those guys.
