When I look into the source code of our wallet GUI - it seems to be very modern, clean and solid.
When I try to use it - all I feel is frustration: I feel lost and insecure while doing basic stuff like voting or shorting bit-assets.

The GUI client needs a solid overhaul from the UX perspective.
I know there are other priorities and UX cannot be fixed quickly but I think we definitely should address and discuss it before 1.0 is released.

My questions for BM:
  • Do you agree that the current UX is much below standards when compared to what mainstream banking can offer?
  • Are we going to see in 1.0 a massive improvement in terms of UX? Are you going to employ a UX specialist for that?
  • Are you willing to present UI design for 1.0 on the forum before the wallet is released to get our feedback before it is too late to change anything?

I think it's fair to say that there is a general sense of anticipation regarding the upcoming launch of several strands of work that have been in production mostly behind the scenes. Whilst I understand and support the difficult choice to keep things less public, I'd very much like to know the following;

1. After the launch of this latest round of changes, will you be able to commit to and publish a roadmap to 1.0.

2. How do you feel about the recent work being done and the present state of the Bitshares ecosystem?

3. Can you give an update on the possibility of Peertracks using the Bitshares blockchain?

4. Do you believe that FMV will deliver the value you originally believed it would when retaining the project and team for Bitshares?

If there isn't time or whatever, the first two questions are more important to me! Thanks.

The future of the salary of delegates with the reforms with paied workers and referal program is very ... fuzzy ;p

We build a web site aiming to inform french people about BitShares, keep them in touch with updates and create a strong french community. Build it, add it a forum, translate "101 BitShares" and some articles was only the tip of the iceberg of our project. We made it with free time and private funds but to move the project further, we would need some funds.

The web site : http://www.bitsharesfcx.com

What would be the most time effective way to collect some funds in a monthly base to fuel the project.
Isn't it risky to invest the time and money to be delegate and when we would finally reach the goal, having a reform where deleguate only sign blocks ?

Edit : This is our example but to avoid project like us to be waiting for more stable ground to decide what is the next step, it would be great to know if it's still a good idea to shoot at the delegate post. Maybe some project should focus more on referal or paied worker system, even if it's not even decided.

I would like to ask this too, and was the 30M BTS really worth it?

I think this one was posted in the wrong thread so I repost it here:

Favdesu prompted me to post my question here,

What ever happened to Baozou, I thought he was PR manager?

Quote
the Core Developers would like to appoint DACx, a cornerstone business of the Bitshares ecosystem founded by Mr. James Gong (aka. Baozou) that could bring us to a place where we could only have dreamed of, as the official spokesman (the “Spokesman”) on behalf of the Core Developers to take over the PR initiative. Bytemaster and the other Core Developers will accordingly be cooperating with this PR initiative moving forward and defer to the Spokesman in any PR matters.

I noticed that your contributions to the bitshares project lately (after February...!!!) are the minimum I ever could personally imagine...
Have you not free time? Are you working on something else? Maybe focused on "notes" like toast do right now?  If so, don't you think it is unfair for bitshares investors? Specially after all this merge-thing and the promise that the core devs would all focus more on bitshares (and not less) and not to other chains?... (like notes?)... or is another merge in  plan?  ::)
Sorry if I am missing something.... I really hope that is the case  :)

I can give you a brief update on the amount of c++ development work the Devs have done:

We have added over 17,000 lines of code.   To put that in perspective the public code for the blockchain library and database is also 17,000 lines of code. 

In the past 3 months the dev team has produced more than the 9 months before it and this work will be made public in a few weeks.

Thanks for the clarification! That explains it all !  :D

PS imagine when active community members have questions/concerns/doubts like this what is the case for first time visitors/investors when they check github etc...
     Can we stick your answer/quote somewhere with great visibility, for example on the top of the forum home page?  :)

I don't think it's an empty promise.  I'm pretty convinced they're really working on something big and that they're really excited about it.  The question is whether community will share that excitement.

Personally I think the dev team is getting stronger, and they started out pretty good, so I expect what they're all so excited about is quite worthwhile.

I have a quick question regarding client and GUI:

I saw (https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares/releases) that only for Linux there are separated programs, i.e., client (daemon?) and GUI. Why is this not the case for MacOS and Windows? I would love to run a "headless" client on Windows - given that the official GUI is still a bit buggy.

That way, people could start writing GUIs independently, or start integrating Bitshares into their applications. I'd love to see that possibility. Any chances on this on systems other than Linux any soon?
