How about this: Instead of simply transfer the BROWNIE.PTS to you guys which makes the available supply go up quite a bit and benefit only whoever got lucky and is on his computer when i actually transfer them.. how about I create some vesting balances for those that want their brownies.pts? Everyone would get a vesting balance pre-filled with their corresponding amount of brownies and ready to be claimed linearily over .. say 90 days. That would make them fully claimable by 1. August.

Actually, I like that idea so much that I might just do it that way .. since you get gifted in any case .. you may not even care ..

Thoughts?

I propose giving some of them to Fox for helping Bitshares get into Microsoft Azure.  (Yeah, its true that the pump didnt last, but at lest it served two useful functions: Bitshares accessibility is increased buy being on Azure, and the short term pump by being one of the first coins on there resulted in a lot of BTS being transferred from old disgruntled bagholders to new buyers, some of whom hopefully will help it to grow).

Absolutely. Well, there are so many deserving contributors, Fox definately being one! I'm happy to move my pledge of half my brownies to @Fox . thank you @xeroc
IIRC I already sent a bunch of them his way.

Great!  They were well deserved.



Anyway, while we are on the topic of brownies:

Back last summer there was talk of sharedrops onto BTS and Brownies, for projects like Identabit. 
Did those ever happen?  Or a snapshot for them taken?
I'm also interested about the evolution of Identabit.

@Tuck Fheman you can have half of any brownies destined for me.  @xeroc

 :D

I appreciate the offer, but I will just send them back.

I hate being rewarded for stupidity, it only encourages more of it.  ;)

I especially don't want someone else to suffer due to my mistake, that would just make it worse.

Thanks though!

I agree with the bounties idea.

The things that need to be done can be listed and people can 'bid' for how cheaply they are willing to do the things.

With half of the BROWNIE.PTS, I would give about 0.7 BROWNIE.PTS per
post
(224201/2) / 159532 = 0.7026834


What to do with the other half? Suggestions?

  • Some of these 'extra' brownies could be distributed to mirror the proportions of those which were distributed as a result of bytemaster's original brownie announcement post. This would be like a bonus top-up for people who have already proved helpful.
  • Or, similarly, some could be sharedropped on people who currently hold brownies (and therefore value them right now and have put time or money in at some point).
  • Sell them and put the money back into the blockchain
  • Offer them as bounties (as @EstefanTT  has already suggested)
  • Start a thread similar to bytemaster's original brownies announcement offering people the chance to appeal for brownies for contributions they've made since bytemaster's distribution

@xeroc - is there a deadline for getting these distributed? The answer to this affects the options for distribution (but also may leak information by allowing us to infer stuff!)...

Just because people have not been active in the last weeks, doesn't mean they shouldn't get brownies .. see for instance @baozi, how certainly deserves some.
Also, since many users don't necessarily have the forum handle=btsaccount, I need to send a pm to all of them anyway. I expect those that are inactive not not tell me a bts account ..
I will not just send brownies to abandoned accounts.

Interesting. There are people in that list that haven't posted here in a very long while, perhaps that should be taken into account as well. In doing so it also should be considered what the quality of such "dormant" accounts were when they were active.

That probably means that they will not notice their brownies either... So from one side it will be good for brownies value since they will remain... VESTED BROWNIES   ;D
