Wow I can't believe I misread the migration rules. I thought the intent was to not create new squatters.

It was.  Some guy cheated the system and apparently still gets to keep his names.

After 2.0 launches, I am looking forward to purchasing the name "Erlichbachman" from whomever owns it if it is unavailable for official registration.  I am glad that the names are transferable.  I'm sure that Cocacola will also be glad to know that they can acquire their name at their leisure also.  You guys admittedly suck at PR, but stealing from your clients is suicide bordering on sabotage.  It's a good thing that you have smart marketing geniuses like Russ and myself to guide you on your journeys young Jedi's

That name does not fit my interest list and I did not register it. In fact, unless it happened recently, I don't think anyone has registered it. Register it by midnight US eastern, or register it using the faucet.

The cool thing is: If it wasn't for SVK and his live site would anyone would have noticed? I can't overstate the value bitsharesblocks.com has added to the community.

Sorry for both changing the subject and being picky here but this 'live site' is down for me for about 9h now.


And yes I cannot overstate how weird it is for the 4-8 biggest crypto to have only one blockexplorer....

I believe that he is referring to the guy who owns bitshares.com who is currently holding out for....

You own the network, but who pays for development?

I thought it was one of us and was about to tell you we'd give it to you when 2.O comes out, however I just checked our marketing wallet and nope, it wasn't anyone here.

In fact, for the next few days: if you had an account prior to June 8th, if there is name I have which you would like to own, let me know your name and I'll arrange to give you the private key of the name you want.

I just had a funny idea...
Wouldn't it be ironic if every single member of the BitShares community took you up on this offer and asked for one name each!?
This isn't a serious proposal, and isn't intended to upset you NameNarwhal, but the idea occurred to me, and I can't stop smiling about it!
Ha hahahah aha hahahah ahha hahhahah aha haaaaa! :P

I had another idea!

I listened to this hangout earlier today. Bytemaster (should 'bytemaster' be capitalized at the beginning of a sentence?) said they were considering giving people life memberships if they give $50 to Cryptonomex.

@NameNarwhal - would it be worth upgrading all of your accounts to life memberships at this cheap rate, in order to make them more valuable? How much would you end up giving to Cryptonomex!? :P

@everyone - has there been any more mention of this 'special offer' since the hangout?

It's about how much one of my domains ended up being put up for sale after I forgot to renew it one year. It was not even a popular term of any kind. Yet, if I wanted it back.. $2k was the ask.

We are updating the migration rules to indicate that only names registered by the faucet will be migrated without a prefix.

woah, is this change retroactive or does it start on a certain date?

so, names registered after 6/8 with more than 8 chars will be prefixed UNLESS they are registered by the faucet as of this date <please fill in the date>, is that correct?

My understanding is that after 17th June, names of 8 characters or more need to be registered via the faucet to avoid the prefix. Up to and including this date 8 character names will be fine, even if the faucet wasn't used.
