Is DevShares still expected to be useful?
.. I wonder it's something that is expected to be useful rather than something that is being useful. I don't mind but if it's not worthwhile that would be useful to know for those us running DVS without any real income from a BTS delegate to compensate.
Perhaps off topic but the Preview of Recent Posts disappeared
from the forum in January and there's not been a clear reply who actioned that or why. I don't know if that's part of PR making communication harder but would be great to have it back
as it's time consuming seeing what is current in subforums beyond /general.
While many people expect overnight success and get frustrated, I tend to prefer the inverse approach and plan for worst case and enjoy the difference. Given the PR approach now, it would be great to have a roadmap and milestones set out in the way that MaidSafe do eg http://maidsafe.net/roadmap#/testnet2
and to see BitShares learn from their experience and the way they can communicate a clear vision (see https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=15217.0
). In the event that BitShares takes another couple of years to take off, it will be important to have solid steps documented and visible in order to maintain support. Little bits of positive news over a long period have a big effect and such a roadmap might be a quick win. My sense is that it'll take another year for the likes of uk.gov to unblock complications like banks frustrating blockchian technology and for businesses then to feel confident to invest in a big way. That said challenging whoever is now in charge of PR to raise the public profile of BitShares, might be important.. excuses that the product is not 1.0 and perfect are not really good enough where other projects that are less developed are catching people's imagination widely. We cannot rely on the marketcap alone to catch new users.. what is being done to get new users on board?
?If no time on the hangout, perhaps a run of FAQs can be answered directly in the forum?
.. rubber stamped and endorsed of course by the real power that is PR!?
