Hi,

I read that currently there's an issue with restoring wallet backups which contain more than 1 account, & thus I'm holding off on creating additional accounts & sticking to my primary project alone. But I do see the advantage to having more than 1, & would like to do so as soon as the aforementioned issue is ironed out.

Where can I monitor the project's development so I can get an idea as to when I can both have multiple accounts, & know my wallet is safely backed up such that it can be properly restored to its original state should a recovery be necessary?

Another question which comes to mind is, if I were to create additional accounts with a separate wallet for each now while it's impossible to properly restore wallets containing multiple accounts, would it be possible to one day consolidate those accounts into a single wallet file once the backup restoration issue is resolved?

Lastly, should it be the case that this problem isn't a priority with the development team, is there a way to maybe vote for which todo items get proiritized? I imagine I could post a bounty to get it completed by foo date if it's on the back burner, but if it's going to be fixed within a reasonable amount of time anyway, I'd rather save my BTSX/PTS.

What were your arguments that you are not eagle-eye again?

Hope you will excuse my short memory. But as short as it is, I thought you have a DAC /DAC distribution to take care of, before jumping in other issues.

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

I can answer a couple of your questions.

Yes, you can later consolidate your wallets by using the wallet_dump_private_key <account> and wallet_import_private key <private key> commands.


Lastly, should it be the case that this problem isn't a priority with the development team, is there a way to maybe vote for which to-do items get prioritized? I imagine I could post a bounty to get it completed by foo date if it's on the back burner, but if it's going to be fixed within a reasonable amount of time anyway, I'd rather save my BTSX/PTS.
I'd imagine the problem you mentioned earlier is a very high priority as a lot of people, me including :(, have funds stuck in Bitsharesland that they can't access right now. I have faith they will be able to get it fixed soon, although I haven't tried restoring my wallet with the latest release yet.

In the meantime I think the community should focus on bringing awareness to the things you can do to prevent these things happening to you such as not using the same account on more than one computer, using more than one wallet on the same computer, or restoring your wallet with an old back up.

I think you bring up a good point about the community being able to vote on which bugs or improvements should be prioritized. I think it would be good to see everyone's opinion and where people are having the most problems, so that the developer's time can be focused towards the biggest issues.

If it works out that such a mechanism is eventually implemented, I think it might be helpful in order to both reduce vote manipulation, & to raise funds to cover development costs, to allow micropayments to be associated with a user's vote. Maybe allow a vote's monetary contribution to be increased by x amount, so people can raise their amount each time their issue is bothering them. That way the devs would have 2 sets of metrics to read- 1 being a number of votes showing how prevalent an issue is, & the other being pain intensity based on each issue's fundraising. Maybe integrate documenting which username is associated with each vote to filter out vote manipulation.

Perhaps these thoughts (among others I'm sure) have already been addressed by the 'Voting' DAC, which could maybe facilitate a solution. I haven't read up on that yet to know what they're up to.

Weather you can or you cannot answer some/all of his questions is beyond the point.
The question is - should you or shouldn't you answer those question... before he explains his DAC working, that is...
