Windows version using Wine on latest Ubuntu

After startup the widow changed from Overview to Create New Account but i didn't click anywhere and just moved the mouse. After creating the account everything is normal. The lock screen is nice. Cool and clean, only one field on the screen.

It seems that normal words (account names) can be used instead of the long numbers of bitcoin wallets. Thats cool because the long numbers are not so pretty.

Niiiiice

- Add 'first time user' screens which guide and prompt new users to register a BitShares account/address immediately
- Hide the Console from 'regular' users
- Password recovery?
- Improve delegate payout notification/visibility
- [Block Explorer] Add ability to "watch" addresses balances.

I have gone through the wallet with my mom (who doesnt know much about bitcoin) to get feedback:

Add 'first time user' screens for the entire GUI

Control of wallets without having to
C:>Users>Admin>AppData>Roaming
Delete wallet from UI and start new wallet. Multiple wallets.
I see Solaaire had to help multiple users (including me) with this hint. I knew what he was talking about when I got the hint but most non bitcoin users wont.
Most users would like to open a temp account and mess around a bit before using it with their money. But then you end up being stuck with your temp account.

Help section should have links to useful information.

The 'create account' button and other green push buttons are too dull. It gives the appearance that they cannot be pressed at this time.

Gravatar links broken. The name Gravatar makes it sound like this is a fake world with fake money and we playing a game.

On the overview: Daily income, daily burn, daily expense. This is confusing? A new user needs to come on and understand the important parts imminently, like with internet banking. Is my money being burnt in the daily burn? Income, is this a pozi scheme like bitcoin?
The accounts page may be better on top.

Hope that was somewhat useful. Exciting times

Create a New Wallet...
Password need more than 8 characters.
So it needs at least a 9 characters password to create a new wallet.
Please write it needs "9 or more" characters and not "more than 8".
The written number should be the min password length on first view without thinking about it.

Two suggestions for consideration.

  • Make it so that users have to save changes to their "Approve" selections. The idea is that it will protect from accidental changes which would be both undesirable and a PITA. The downside is that some may find that having to remember to save changes is a PITA
  • Add the ability to "Deselect All" for the "Approve" selections. The idea is that the list is very long and a user may want to start from scratch with their selections.

Pls consider adding a github issue .. its difficult for the devs to track all threads an feature requests ... thx a lot for it anyway

Thanks xeroc, I'll consider going to GitHub.
These are kind of personal preference issues so I wasn't sure whether the suggestions would be improvements or hindrances.
(I've not used GitHub before so wasn't sure on proper procedure. Are people supposed to just put whatever they want on there, and the devs make the decision? Or am I supposed to gauge the issue first by getting feedback from the community?)
Do others here think I should submit these?
Gotta go to bed now so I'll check this tomorrow and go to GitHub then if that's best.
Sorry to be a newbie pest!

Got the windows wallet working no problem.  Looks good, as others have mentioned, stands out compared to standard clone wallets. 

Also as reported by others, it produces an error when you quit via menu (File, Quit) or clicking window x.

Some questions:

1. How do I "fund" my account and register it?
2. How/Why/When do I use the Import Wallet feature under Advanced?

Also, I assume that import wallet path will have a file selection dialog button at some point so people don't have to type the path.

Glad to see something working.  :D

Hehe you're welcome. :) IMO best workaround is to preselect issues and enhancements here and then creating issues in git after discussing in this thread.  My 2 cents

Hello and thank you for the feedback!

Some questions:

1. How do I "fund" my account and register it?
2. How/Why/When do I use the Import Wallet feature under Advanced?

1. Right now, you have to go to the dry run thread (https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=5523.0) and request funds (XTS) from someone already on the network. You then use a very small amount of funds in order to register. This method of registration is temporary, and will be replaced with a free registration for new users in the future. Users will need an address to send these funds to, so don't forget to include your Account Key in the post (don't worry, this is NOT a private key!)

2. From what I understand, you will use the Import Wallet feature to import PTS wallets, and also to import PTS and BTC wallets which have donated to AGS and will receive a stake in future DACs (BitShares X, Music, Lotto, DNS, etc). But as you pointed this out, the feature is currently unfinished

I have also been wondering at what point issues in this thread might be worthy of Github. I think discussing them in this thread like you suggested is a great start. I would not mind adding a lot of these issues to Github, but at the same time I would like to avoid flooding the issue tracker with unrealistic suggestions or bug reports that are not well documented
