The big problem is you have a couple Chinese whales pulling strings here.




go ahead (if you haven't already) and hit 'ignore'

This will go over well with the non-Bitshares cryptocurrency community.

It amazes me the lack of foresight involved with a decision like this.  This could've been kept private and BM's post frequency minimized, as it should be. Typing and answering forum posts is not coding.  No need to announce a man in the high castle will be editing his posts and others.

The big problem is you have a couple Chinese whales pulling strings here. Their thoughts and ideas may be right but this is the wrong way of going about it. Unfortunately they have been threatening BM that they will divest and are scaring him into their will. 

This is only the beginning of what the Chinese whales want. More to come....Don't get me wrong, I fully agree with what they want, but the inevitable results will kill Bitshares.

I think the small fish in China has been asking for this too . Just got ignored .

I was late to the announcement so I couldn't read the details but from what I've gathered there will be a PR representative that will help organize and translate development news which has been needed for quite some time IMO. 

I think the small fish in China has been asking for this too . Just got ignored .

I agree.  BitShares is a decentralized autonomous community but we live in separate camps on the forum because of the translation barrier.  Everything is transparent which is wonderful but it's unorganized and difficult to follow for those that don't speak English or don't live on GitHub.  We need the international community to come together and I think this is a positive step towards that direction and I see this PR position as being very beneficial (and much needed) if done properly.

Why did this get buried?

This was not a misunderstanding. Nobody is that dumb to believe that.

I am disappointed that it has come to this.

The Core Developers (including any member thereof individually) should make no comment on any subject on the forum unless approved by and posted through the Spokesman.

I would start with a clear development road map.  See MaidSafe for example, http://maidsafe.net/roadmap.

It is uncertainty that shakes most investors and the market in general.  Constantly changing direction under the guise of "growing up" is just confusing.  Develop a road map and stick to it.  The other 2.0 projects have for the most part been very clear as to their goals and how they plan to get there.

??? Seriously?

Yes, absolutely seriously:

Goebbels was one of the best PR guys of all times - he knew how it works.

“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.”

The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”


-------
Additionally, here is what the spokesmen wrote, after self appointing himself in that position of course:

"1.The Core Developers (including any member thereof individually) should ... nor speak of their ideas thereof on the forum until ...the Spokesman grants clearance .... "

"2.The Core Developers (including any member thereof individually) should make no comment on any subject on the forum unless approved by and posted through the Spokesman. ...."

"3.The Core Developers (including any member thereof individually) should not disclose  information ... unless approved by and communicated through the Spokesman."

"4.The Core Developers (including any member thereof individually) should not air their internal discussions or debates on any open issue until  ... the Spokesman grants clearance to that disclosure."

"5.The Core Developers (including any member thereof individually) should never comment on any ... unless approved by and posted through the Spokesman"

"6.The Core Developers (including any member thereof individually) should not answer any ...unless relevant questions or requests are directed by the Spokesman to the Core Developers and the answers of the Core Developers are approved by and communicated through the Spokesman."

So the above does not scream Nazi Germany for you? For me it does.

I think your interpretation of events is pretty absurd.  You are clearly just looking for ways to interpret things in a sinister way to FUD bitshares.


This is not some malevolent takeover attempt by chinese whales, it is simply yet more incompetence when it comes to PR by people who are involved in bitshares.

Essentially, some chinese guys are like: "Wow, those western guys are incompetent at PR!  Lets take charge of the PR situaiton".  But then they are just as incompetent and post this absurd thing without thinking it through either or running it by people.

This will go over well with the non-Bitshares cryptocurrency community.

Why are you so determined to FUD bitshares to the greater crypto community? 
Yes, everyone in bitshares is utterly worthless at PR and they give you ample opportunities to do this.  But why do you hate Bitshares so much?

Yep, it was terrible and incompetent PR.  Thats all it was.  Yet another person coming in and sticking their foot in their mouth when it comes to trying to say something about bitshares.  You interpret it as something far more than it really was.

The prowess (intentional or not) of the original PR post is now revealing itself.

  • Post polarizing PR message
  • Wait for ****storm.
  • Revise PR message
  • Get what you wanted all along, now with consensus in an effort to make step 2 stop.
.
Problem, reaction, solution! 

It's like BitShares false flag attacked itself to get a desired end result. Seems to be working, great job!

Leonard Nimoy would be proud of teh sheer genius behind this move ... oh wait.

It's a joke, get over it.
