My thinking is that we need to make as clear as possible that this is a testnet and it's tokens are worthless.

I agree. But I would like to treat a testnet like a staging environment, where things should be as close as possible to real network. Maybe an alert/reminder after loading a page would be enough?

Calling them USD and pegging them similar to BTS:USD is counterproductive imho ..

In my opinion we have too many assets, what is very confusing for new users. For example, we have BTC, openBTC, metaBTC, etc. now we are going to have even more assets in the testnet, like PEG.FAKEBTC, because without making a pegged assets there is no possibility of creating those assets by collateral. Am I right?

I've managed to add a witness node to the testnet.
It's called neura-sx and it runs on a Ubuntu server.

There were no issues while setting up the witness, expect for this one: the embedded version of the genesis.json file did not work for me as it generated a wrong blockchain ID.

The workaround is simple: apply the genesis.json file manually like this:
Code: [Select]
graphene-testnet/programs/witness_node/witness_node --genesis-json graphene-testnet/genesis.json --witness-id '"<your-witness-id>"' --private-key '["<your-witness-public-key>","<your-witness-private-key>"]'

Yes, i noticed that too and there is a bug report about whatever went wrong with the embedded genesis block.

I'll let vote you in asap

I think you haven't copied some js widgets for the testnet web GUI.
As a result, some features are malfunctioning e.g. the settings pop-up for the price history chart does not work.

with the missing file here:

You can create those assets by yourself if they're currently not available. Ask xeroc for funds. Ask xeroc for electing your witnesses so that you can publish price feeds.

Those two can be done even without xeroc's help - each new account in the web GUI is well funded by default.

Interesting. I though those would be installed automatically by `npm` .. [member=11456]svk[/member]: do you know more?

Not enough.
Xeroc votes with 9.8 billion for his own witnesses (from the faucet account). Every new account get funded with 1 million only. Unless you create 10K accounts and all vote for your witness. You can try create 5K accounts (with a script maybe) so your combined voting power will be higher than faucet.
Or maybe you only need to vote for all current active witnesses + your witness, so the total number of active witnesses will increase by 1, so you're voted in?

//Update: init9 is voted in with 0 votes, so there is at least one witness position available in testnet. However I think it's best if at least 3 witnesses provide price feeds to a MPA.

I think I added witness called "issuer", but it is not appear on http://testnet.bitshares.eu/#/explorer/witnesses, but I still have Votes: 0.

Should I do something more or a committee member has to vote for this witness?

you don't need witnesses to run feeds .. you can do this with privatized bitassets as well ..

That would also explain my general impression that the testnet GUI gets stuck due to unhandled exceptions (and needs reloading) much more frequently than the live one.

The witnesses can be voted in by anybody, no committee member needs to be involved.
Next vote update is in 12 hours, we need to wait till then to see the votes supporting your witness applied.

I'm not sure what that widget is for but it seems to be related to the Electron build, so it's no problem that it's missing.

I assume you're building with "npm run build" and hosting with nginx or Apache? Shouldn't need to do anything other than that.

exactly that .. (with nginx/passenger and ruby for faucet)

Here, the testnet works almost flawlessly. The only issue I see is that the equivalent price is not shown and the fee schedule in the explorer is "empty"

Identified testnet GUI problems:
- the Settings pop-up does not work (see the screen-shot for details)
- ugly scroll bars on the DEX page (even in Chrome)
