- Is it possible to delete accounts from the wallet? If yes, how?
No .. it's not .. and the devs (for good reason) don't see why to support this .. people will skrew them selves

- Is it possible to convert non-TITAN to TITAN through the gui or cmdline ? Any major downsides to using TITAN accounts? [why is it not the default?]
Not yet but developers have it implemented in the code already ... the default in the GUI is non-TITAN ..

Thanks xeroc for your answers. I've got a few more questions/observations from these,if you have the time:

I believe the GUI should a) give the user the option of titan vs non-titan, and b) have a very clear, per-account visual indicator of whether the account is TITAN-enabled or not. The documentation scattered around in the wiki is tricky on this aspect, and http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/TITAN#GUI_Mode is very unclear about the fact that the account, when created from the gui, is not TITAN-enabled.

As for deleting accounts, come on now. This strikes me a bit like treating users like children. Hide it behind an advanced mode and a confirmation dialog, sure, or ask for the password to confirm the operation, but it ought to be possible.

What would be the most straighforward way of moving accounts between wallets now? I mistakenly created 3 extra accounts when starting out, and they do little else but clutter the display. I believe this procedure essentially boils down to exporting the private key for each account and then importing on the new wallet.. but I couldn't find any howto.


Are there any special considerations to have with TITAN at all? Would I need to back-up the wallet after receiving funds with TITAN accounts?

sure

I believe the GUI should a) give the user the option of titan vs non-titan, and
That currently is implemented for newly registered accounts and will soon be an option that can be switched AFAIK

b) have a very clear, per-account visual indicator of whether the account is
TITAN-enabled or not. The documentation scattered around in the wiki is tricky
on this aspect, and http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/TITAN#GUI_Mode is very
unclear about the fact that the account, when created from the gui, is
not TITAN-enabled.
I totally agree with you .. and I remember from Stan, that there will be even
some more indicators for account names. Not just TITAN/nonTITAN, but also
'is_favorit' or 'made a tx to that account already' kind of flags ..

As for deleting accounts, come on now. This strikes me a bit like treating
users like children. Hide it behind an advanced mode and a confirmation dialog,
sure, or ask for the password to confirm the operation, but it ought to
be possible.
I totally agree and I would find it useful myself. But at the current stage,
the devs have better things to do. This will definitly be a post-1.0 feature
eventually.

What would be the most straighforward way of moving accounts between wallets
now? I mistakenly created 3 extra accounts when starting out, and they do
little else but clutter the display. I believe this procedure essentially boils
down to exporting the private key for each account and then importing on the
new wallet.. but I couldn't find any howto.
Yes that's how it would work. Though we do not recommend this. The reason are
market-transaction that might cat crippled and memos for TITAN transaction may
not be recoverable. Hence, porting private keys from A to B is absolutely not
supported.

However, it breaks down to
Code: [Select]
wallet_dump_account_private_key <account> "owner_key"
wallet_dump_account_private_key <account> "active_key"

and ..
Code: [Select]
wallet_import_private_key <key>
wallet_import_private_key <key>
resan

This will ONLY work for registered accounts!!!!

If you find yourself with missing funds afterwards you will need to do what I
summarized here:
http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/RecoveringFunds
Ideally, you should move all your funds to yourself once prior to importing
(and rescanning) .. this will spare your alot of problems

no .. TITAN is like HD-wallets .. just a little more sophisticated. It may
though require to rescan the blockchain (never need to do this myself).
