 :D I was delighted to find some really positive posts on Steemit encouraging folk to invest in BTS. Encouragement also to use the Lite wallet for security.
I've been following Bitshares for years. Constantly undervalued.Clearly you want to attract new users and investments. You are quite right to claim high status for your technology. You are probably all too bright for your own good.
So, after the Steemit post, just for fun, I imagined myself to be new to the obscurities of Bitshares and downloaded the Lite 2.0 wallet.... Install on Win10.... Had to close the install window...... Blank screen.. ??? ...Checked installed programs...ah yes, there it is.... Launched.... Greeted by "app init issues, API conn, some sort of drop down menu with equally unintelligible items" etc etc.  ???
Seriously, when are you going to get it? You know what it's all about but newcomers don't.
I also tried the Moonstone effort. Oh dear. ::)
Even Barclays bank can come up with Revolut. Then there's WB21. Yes, we know about centralised and security risks  etc but they are giving people stuff that works straight out of the box and beats the hell out the rest.
So shoot me down if you want but I think BTS is too much about tech, assets, trading and changing the world. Steemit proves that if you come up with something that ordinary non tech people want, it will take off even with initial flaws. End frustrated rant.  :(

trying to help someone with their account....the backup file and password work to get in BUT his username is no where to be found...I can find his username in explore and follow it (from inside his account) but the send form isn't showing amount boxes and when he tries to make a buy or sell order the damn thing keeps saying (Transaction was not signed. Do you have a private key? [no_signers])

same message when he tries to set permissions

what the hell is going on with it??

When I vote for a new proxy what the button PROPOSE>PROPOSE FROM>MYACCOUNT
means?
http://docs.bitshares.eu/bitshares/user/transactions-proposed.html
It's a feature that is required for on-chain multi-signature schemes

can openledger be hacked like any other exchange. do they have hot wallets and such that are susceptible to hacks and such?  i figure the dex coins are on chain and ok?
the exchange service Openledger has no access to customer funds ..
with the OPEN.* assets, the story is different. Those assets are IOUs backed by real assets .. those could be hacked .. potentially .. if you knew which machine to attack .. but since the exchange is decentralized, you dont even know which address range to hack

Is safe to save my backup.bin direct in my email acccount? Could it be compromised anyway or could email provider know that im using bitshares? Would they delete it?
The wallet alone should be safe (this contains your private keys which are encrypted with your password).
Your wallet requires the password to access the private keys. If your password is strong and secured offline then it should be fine.
Make sure you have a good password and always store your wallet files and passwords separately. I would also not keep digital copies of my passwords.
