The future of the forum?
« on: May 13, 2016, 05:25:20 am »
Is discussion formally moving over to the bitshares page on steem?

there needs to be a place for beginners in bitshares to go and get information easily such as:

how to get bitshares?
how to use openledger
3-4 different choices of blockchain explorers right now I can only think of 2, cryptofresh and openledger.
how does bitshares work? witnesses? workers? committee members?

I know bitshares is always changing and I think it's changed by far, on the whole, for the better, but we can't let the communication get all tangled up more than it already is. Bitshares.org needs to point people in all the right directions.

Let's discuss where the discussion is taking place. I like steem, seems steemy. Saunas are hot.

I guess if nobody responds that's kinda an answer too.

There is no 'formal' decision to move anywhere and I will still be active in this forum.
Only thing that changes is that I double post into Steem on annoucements and stuff.

Also, there are documentation pages for BitShares (docs.bitshares.eu) that are not 'changing' but improving over time. That page should be visited by newbies aswell!
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

That's pretty much my stance as well, posting in both locations.

For now I'm just on the forum but considering getting active on steem as well soon.

IMO the forum shouldn't go away. It's a different style of discussion, we could use both.

agreed, the forum should not go away...there's far too much valuable information on here, plus it's part of our history.

 Chronos will produce some videos and I am planning to start an additional beginners guide for BitShares too. Currently, I am working on updating the main BitShares.org site plus collecting material for a BitShares Wikipedia page. Ken told me that there were a group of people working on that for Bitshares 1.0 but got run over by the fast development of BitShares 2.0 . I would like to pick up here and provide more info for BitShares itself in the next weeks.

The Forum is a important part of the community and has tons of value for beginners and experts.

Im new here but dex is pretty much intuitive for guys that already use exchanges. Understanding bitshares will require take goooooood time reading the docs  it is a must. I took a look at videos from 2014, but you cant really understand it in full without docs n some reasearch in forum n google, for me that is the way it is....complex, but addicted, is good to take time to understamd it, it is like a book

bitshares 2014 is much different from bitshares today... I wouldn't waste your time watching the old videos with Max Wright.

yeah, ultimately i'd like to see more trading manuals and user documentation for the DEX; maybe some of us who trade actively can put together best practices, lessons learned, etc. For me, it has been all about learning by doing, starting small and scaling up when i see opportunity.
