Title: TODO / DONE
Post by: pc on November 17, 2014, 09:24:46 am
This post is supposed to be our pre-launch checklist for administrative items. There's a corresponding list for technical items (http://pts.cubeconnex.com/index.php?topic=29.0) in the technical section of this forum. Please feel free to post additional suggestions in this thread, I'll try to keep the OP updated. And we need volunteers - if you want to contribute in any way, please tell us!

TODO

* Move forum to ptstalk.com - in progress (fuzzy, cube)

DONE

* Decide future configuration (team)
* Handle angel fund problem (AlphaBar)
* Get OK from I3 (AlphaBar)
* Create PTS website (AlphaBar)
* Define snapshot date / launch date (team)
* Launch PTS website (AlphaBar)
* Announce PTS upgrade to DPOS in forums: BTT, bitsharestalk (AlphaBar)
* Find volunteers to run init delegates (team)
* Contact exchanges (AlphaBar)

I think PTS website should be best taken up by AlphaBar.  He is our marketing man.  I am working with fuzzy on ptstalk.org. It would be a simple setup.  I have contacted bter on our intention to upgrade to DPOS.  bter is aware and positive. However, we are not ready yet.  Once we have made a good dry run, we can set a date, with sufficient announcement time to the users, for snapshot and roll-out. 

@AlphaBar
From the time we are ready to the actual roll-out, can we have some marketing buzz? ;)

Feels a bit like we're losing momentum . . . I think there's a case for choosing and announcing the snapshot date (end of life date) for PTS PoW. Is December 1st too soon?

There are work going on (hidden) in the background and unfortunately we do have limitation on our ends. 

A gentle reminder for the not-so-patient: We are working purely on volunteered free time, mostly unpredictable but usually motivated. We like to invite more volunteers (you) to help out.

Gaining momentum really has a great deal to do with having ease of communication and contact between Devs and Investors.  I am a broken record on this though so I'll stop pushing for Dev Hangouts. :P

I suggest you guys get set up over here:  http://forum.nullstreet.com/

Methodx and a large number of BTS community members are coordinating marketing as we speak.  I have already checked, and almost all of them also hold PTS...

pc - I suggest an update to the list to reflect recent changes. Also, I think we will need a block explorer, so it would be good to add that to the list.

I don't know how tech-savvy you are, but we need DNS seeders, seed nodes, delegates and so on... choose any three. :-)

Or maybe you're more of an evangelist / community manager type, then you should work together with AlphaBar.

I would like to become more well-rounded.  If anyone is interested in making a step-by-step checklist on the best practices for properly setting up, securing and updating a server I would like to start there.  However, I have no issues with being a community manager here (not in the BTS SuperDAC chain).  As such, I would promise to promptly answer questions needed answered to the best of my degree and open up more time for you guys to do what you need to do.  With that said...

I worked on a different logo for PTS.  We should, imho, get Cass to design it (and pay for that).  Otherwise, we should try to stick with designs that are minimalist and elegant like his.  I am not anywhere near as good as he is, but here is a link to the forum thread where I intend to post some alternatives...Definitely need a change from the current one though--no offense meant.

Forums are now PTStalk.org.  Please contact me if details are needed.  I MIGHT have done it wrong...

Though it seems right, it might not be done by the best practice for this particular usage.  If so please discuss.

I checked the link, and it leads exactly back to here (pts.cubeconnex.com).  Is that what was intended?

no.  just messaged cube about it actually.  I walked through it to get it assigned to PTStalk.org.  What I was shown was apparently a work around.  it works for now, but it will be changed further.

Just a heads up - I've contacted Bter, Btc38, Poloniex, cryptsy, and coinmarketcap and I am awaiting their response. I think it will be important to have unanimous support, so please let me know if you have connections at any of the exchanges/sites in case my messages go unresponded. We need to work towards consensus to inform the community and to avoid any post-snapshot scams.

Hi I would like to offer to help. I have never ran a seed node or or DNS seed but I have gone through the process of setting up a delegate in BTS network. If there is other information on how to run the other two where I could learn I would be willing to learn.

you are very welcome.  I support the project.  I would definitely be interested in seeing us find a way to destroy the old chain though :/

Here's two more exchanges where PTS are being traded:

(Feel free to remove the ref codes if they bother you.)

Welcome onboard!

pc is the guru behind the DNS seed.  He has written a brief intro here - http://pts.cubeconnex.com/index.php?topic=29.msg358#msg358.  If you need more help, please feel free to ask.

Could you create a new thread under the section 'volunteers'?

I think we need to add 'Coinmarketcap' to the notification list.  The mining pools need to be informed too.  Let the old PTS be totally 'switched off'.

I've reached out to all 3. Hoping to avoid any scams/confusion post-snapshot.
