The network forked at Saturday and the main reason is still unknown.
If we keep ignoring the key problem that this project is facing , no matter how many blog posts , this project is not gonna survive the winter .
Our major competitors are having a field day every time the wallet fails .
Who's attention are you trying to attract , BM ?
It surely are not the existing investors and potential users who would really use the product .
At this point it doesn't matter if the blog is right or wrong .
We don't even know the CEO of OKPAY , and yet millions of people use their product . Did you see his blog posts ?
They provide a sound product , people like to use it , period . No one would use OKPAY just because of what their CEO think of . Kindred spirit is hard to find .
Don't get me wrong , I like BM's vision . But as an investor and user , outsiders wouldn't want to invest in Bitshares further until it get some serious improvement . Just look at the account numbers , that doesn't lie . I only opens the wallet if I have too .
I agree, but it does also matter if blog content is any good, it makes a unbearably slow client even worse when one of the guys who's supposed to be fixing it instead writes badly researched blog posts, harming relations with potential allies. Look at the complaints about the post (more towards the bottom). The opinions of these guys matters. https://www.maidsafe.org/t/bytemater-bitshares-daniel-larimer-opinion-on-maidsafe/2902
. It could have so easily been a thread filled with positive replies, a strengthened BitShares brand and new interest from developers and investors. Now those people are turned off forever.
I hold some maidsafecoin, and he's gone and soured that relationship. Do I need to post in the forum that BM doesn't represent BitShares and is just some community member? The problem could easily be solved by him stopping blogging. Hate to bite the hand that feeds me, but someone's got to speak up about this. It's like a deliberate attack on BitShares. I'm sorry to say it but blogging is not BM's forte. Why is he doing it?
There's a limited pool of crypto-people to appeal to, we finally have a great website, all we need to have good PR is for BM to stop blogging and to have occasional, professional announcements. Except he'll have to now waste time writing more posts to push these maidsafe posts which are liabilities, instead of assets, down from the main page.
While it's easy to complain, sometimes complaints are justified.
