Soooo made some mistakes setting up a delegate for the company out of lack of documentation. I didn't think anything of our naming choice at the time because I saw dev.nathanhourt.com in the top 101.
I attempted to register a parent wallet account like subdomain.domain.com (real name not shown, this is just an example) with the intent of creating a full RDNS and webpage featuring everything about our delegate position and maybe even link to it for others to see in other forums and learn about bitshares.. .but anyways I attempted to register the name in linux to the network after successfully transferring 10BTS to it from another account and got this:
subdomain.domain.com (unlocked) >>> wallet_account_register subdomain.domain.com subdomain.domain.com
20039 unauthorized_child_account: unauthorized child account
Parent account must authorize registration of this child account!
th_a wallet.cpp:3036 register_account
th_a wallet.cpp:3068 register_account
th_a wallet_api.cpp:1178 wallet_account_register
th_a common_api_client.cpp:4592 wallet_account_register
th_a cli.cpp:629 execute_command
I realize I didn't include the delegate command in this.. I essentially wanted to just get the wallet setup along with the server configuration prior to getting into the delegate pool.
After this happened I start digging into forums and find this reference to a naming convention that this guy found out the hard way too https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=11904.0
I went to the wiki on Best Practices on Account Names only to find it entirely blank.. why I have no idea: http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/Best_Practices/AccountNames
dev.nathanhourt.com is an inside developer that I couldn't find any presence on the forum so I couldn't PM him for the secret sauce to this. So I had to ask the question here:
How on earth did he manage to create this naming convention when the rules state that this would be essentially impossible allowing only one 'subaccount' . in the mix.
I didn't want to do a parent and sub initially.. but even if I was going to, I still have no way to do domain.com .. yet somehow dev.nathanhourt.com has managed too.
Can someone on the inside tell me exactly how this can be accomplished? I REALLY would prefer to have a complete hostname address that I can have advertised as my delegate address so that anybody can find my corresponding data/story/contact anywhere.
I am sure I will get some reply with a link to something obvious that I missed.. but at this point that's a chance I am willing to risk to figure out what to do next to accomplish this.
Thanks so much!
