How to show our appreciation to Bytemaster
« on: September 07, 2014, 04:06:43 PM »

It seems to me that Bytemaster has been working like a lunatic for months. Can we think of a way to show our appreciation for his efforts?

The following is entirely speculation.
He might like some time off to relax, get pampered or just get away from it all on a holiday.  He may feel unwilling or unable to take a break because of all the commitments. With the amount of stuff to do, there perhaps will be no good time for him to do this. Maybe it's up to us to, therefore, to say, "Hey Bitemaster, we think you've put so much into this that you deserve a holiday! Go for it!". Now, I don't know when would be the most suitable time for this - that would have to be gauged somehow.

I have thought of various possible scenarios whereby it could be difficult or unwise for Bitemaster to announce that he's having a holiday. I'm creating this topic on the off-chance that any of these scenarios currently exists.  If the community encourages him to have a holiday it could feasibly enable it to happen (now or in the future), when it otherwise wouldn't have.

Of course it's not unlikely that what I'm saying here is way off the mark. It could even be offensive, nonconstructive or damaging somehow. Maybe Bitemaster has had a holiday, or is perfectly capable of organizing his own life! If that's the case then I'm sorry, and the topic can be deleted.

Sorry Bytemaster if my interfering is unwanted. This topic arose in my mind as I tried to imagine what it might have been like for you over recent times! The whole Bitshares thing to date has been an epic journey! Long may it continue (but with holidays :P)...

Should this be made into a poll?
Anyone have any thoughts, suggestions or criticisms?
Should the above be applied to other members of the team as well as Bytemaster?

+5% .. I thought about this too .. and his recent sickness might be the result of the overwhelming duties and recent progress ..
however, we need to also address vikram, dan N., toast, stan and all those that are doing the coding without us noticing ..

maybe we can send them something to take a break during the work day ..
 - table tennis
 - massage chairs
 - espresso machine
 - a bunch of fruits

I think there are plenty of ways for them to get a short break and enjoy life ..

Naww.

Here's a different perspective; let's chain him to his desk.

Thanks for bringing this up!  I am all in, let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

We ALL owe him so much, and don't want him to ever burn out.

Another thing that would be fun is to set some kind of world wide party.

Perhaps we could tie it to a goal, like surpassing the Market cap of Litecoin or something.

We could spend the hole time worshiping the Bitemaster.

Would it be offensive to refer to the Bitmaster as any of the following?

* Prophet
* Seer
* Revelator
* God

Wasnt aware of any recent sickness? but the suggestions here of just pizza, redbull and pop diet would be doing damage to  any human, never mind all the developers.

Need to be eating a balanced diet preferably without any redbull or pop

Thanks for all of the support.  I feel much better now. 

I'll be taking a few extra days after inside bitcoin Vegas.

Take some time. Stay healthy. :)

well said! And sometimes it's even important to get a view from outside the work - with a beer or 2 -  :P cheers.
Keep up your really outstanding work. I want to thank the entire team & community.

* daniel - you are the best bytemaster ever!!! *
* and there is one and only bytemaster ever!!! *

please establish some very near target, and after achieving this, force yourself to take a reasonable break, wellness resort, nice beach holiday etc. knowing you are healthy and energetic is much better for all of us than being afraid of your getting burned out... and even as your priority is getting bitshares accomplished, please don't forget in a human dimension, independently of all crypto stuff, you are a wonderful living being also! ;)

Definitely try the alcohol treatment!! It has always proved very helpful for me for any kind of sickness.. Especially with fever a couple of whiskeys always help me recover...
