Golos Hardfork / Issues - my stance - (English)


Dear Golos community. My name is @roelandp, witness for Golos since day 1 and been supporting the network for over a year, with a witness, seed node and a backup witness, as well as some scripts and the GolosTools.com website.

Last summer I was at GolosFest in Moscow and had a great time spending with the community. Unfortunately my Russian is very rustic and limited to ordering a bottle of Kvass so I totally understand that you would vote for more inclined witnesses like @arcange who in the meantime undoubtly masters russian.

I do want to share my point of view, and will do this in English. I have been very busy with the organisation of SteemFest in Lisbon and just returned to Amsterdam. I feel it is very unfortunate to see (from my distant view) the community getting split up about the hardfork and various people staking Golos. My point of view is the following:

  1. I support anyone who supports Golos towards next levels, either by supporting with developers, development.
  2. I think mainly why their are so many "issues" at hand at the moment is that the imminent hardfork has been postponed so often that people are kind-of fed up with this and start getting "rowdy".
  3. I think that much is prevented by having clear communications from the Core Development Team.
  4. Discussions like the Discord yesterday (which I missed) are very functional and so where the 'an Evening with Golos' which happened at the beginning / launch of the network.
  5. Incremental hardforks with focus on 1 or 2 features are a best practice instead of having an ever growing and changing feature set of the "ever"-delayed hardfork.
  6. Working together instead of fighting eachother helps the platform go forward.

I understand these remarks are quite generic, but this is as much as I can go into detail about the matters at hand. I hope that people stick together and work towards one unified product by working together instead of fighting each other. Nonetheless it's good to keep everyone in check, so I think more regular chats / 'a night with Golos' are very welcome, to keep communication and updates clear, as well as discussion / reaching consensus.

I would suggest, let's limit the hardfork features, and get more incremental hardfork's with set feature sets.

Thank you and good night. Всего хорошего,

@roelandp
Ps. we are planning a tour with the trans-mongolian express, if anyone has any tips, when and where to stop, please let me know!

Since 19th of October I don't have any access to Evening with Golos Youtube channel.

But after gathering together in Discord there were a lot of suggestions to make those meetings there regular (although the day when to hold it is still in question).

Also you can watch the meeting, since @vik recorded it: /ru--golos/@vik/zapis-vstrechi-delegatov-i-predstavitelei-kiber-fonda-6-chasov

hi! thx for SteemFest!
Are you going to accept HF?

I am not a big fan of the 'automatic cancelling of witness votes'. Not because of my own position (I think I will drop out of the Top 19 very soon), but because of stability for the network and tiring witnesses & 'regular' users with having to pro-actively ask people again & again to vote for their witnesses. If the HF will move the platform forward, but I would first like to see some results. Also I think it would be best to limit features per HF, whether it is about introducing UIA now and reward curve changes later in future forks. I'd love to see a featureset being 'closed' and moving on the other upgrades of the platform. Especially since the hardfork was already due last summer and then there was not all this discussion about it. Still I am not pro the cancelling of witness votes, but it happens that there is already consensus about that?

Please Get your witness on 16.4! What is the reason that youre not updated to the latest version? @fyrstikken wants to ask you why you are not on the latest version? @coinbank needs you to get updated so Golos is not in danger, Coinbank cares about the integrity of the Golos Blockchain. You need to upgrade your witness to the LATEST version please! You are on 16.4, this shows you at 16.3

But I am guessing that there is some reason you have not upgraded?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION

Just a friendly reminder! We want Golos to become GREAT ! I am sure you have some reason for why the witness is not updated to 16.4? . Come talk to @fyrstikken
http://steemspeak.com and also come to Golos rising discord chat https://discord.gg/wRWW5dX

I know I am repeating myself but TWO witnesses are in this post and BOTH have NOT upgraded to newest version 16.4 so WTF guys come oN youre risking splitting the chain in two!!! you need to UPGRADE... youre putting the ENTIRE PLATFORM and ALL OF OUR MONEY in fucking danger!

WHy do you think BITTREX wallets are DISABLED ?!?! GET YOUR WITNESS NODES RUNNING THE LATEST SOFTWARE VERSION and no more EXCUSES as to why its NOT NEEDED. No it IS needed even if you dont think it is.... you guys are always acting like you KNOW better than the real professionals!

Ok sorry for being mad but this is the sort of incompetence that maes Golos the Joke of all blockchain and is why Golos is still under 20 cents ... Golos could be at $1 if you all had some discipline to HOLD your Golos and not just spend it all when it comes in!

Flagged because you're are spamming people with erroneous information and rude language.

Ok I edited my original comment, i was being rude, i apologize

I have problems with my speech and my hyper activity and I just get too defensive

I apologize for my previous comment, anyone who checks the blockchain can see what i originally wrote but no need for that anymore, i will try to move forward and learn t control my anger

@arcange I just want you to work even harder, you can do so much good for the community, you should be posting on Steem blokchain as much as possible promoting the need for change in Golos and THEN we can use Golos when they have mroe users!

WE MUST change the rules for account creation! Golos MUST alow for unlimited account creation using Proof of Work account mining similar to how Steem HF20 will have

This is @coinbank 's visualization of STeem hard fork roadmap, BUT it is related to Golos

We shpuld just catch up to Steem and get delegation and get ready to adopt steem's new hard fork 20 POW account creation method.... when we have this method we will have unlimited free accounts...

OR maybe you guys have a plan to have unlimited free accounts using another method?

I just fear Golos is stagnating and I know you must agree, and that the work is slowed down, and I hope we can change that because Golos could become the largest crypto currency in Russia , eastern europe and central asia, but we must get the free market involved and OPEN up Golos... it is far too closed right now, but we can change that

I apologize if i sound arrogant or unhelpful but iu am not spreading disinfo... many golos witnesses and golos inc workers executives etc believe that they know what is best they believe they know better than Steemit Inc... as if they know everything!
And then there is the problem with cuber fund,...
I just wish Cyberfund would be more transparent!

But it is almost too late, if we canot hard fork golos to HF17 by new years, we might as well hardfork it ourselves and make a NEW golos where we only bring over who WE want ....

we will only bring over peopel with Golos power,... if u do not power up you will be left behind, so maybe THAT can encourage more golos users to powerup!

Are you a troll?

No i am no troll, i just get angry I have touretes syndrome and i loose control of my voice sometimes an i go off, and it is no excuse but I came back and edited al my posts because i was being very rude and unprofessional

I dont work for anyone and i have no contracts but i am breaking business eddiquite and i apologize for my attityude

I just get angry when people make excuses, and I see golos as stagnating while steem is growing! Golos users with power like yourself might be working hard, I bet you work much harder than me! but you could be working harder! I can also work harder and I will try, because thre is to much work right now to be lazy, and too much money too many lives at stake

Of course you probably work harder than me, but you are the witness you have the stake you have the golospower you have the influence and I believe you should do more to RALLY golos users behind @coinbank and @pravda so we can HIRE NEW developers like @goldvoice @vladimir.antonov and maybe give him a budget so he can hire HIS friends who will learn from him and maybe you know some people to hire? I am sureyou have friends who are great developers or who can learn to develop for golos, we need peopel who can present a WORKING test net for golos... THEN we can create WORKING golos hard forks of possible Golos blockchain upgrades in the future!

Imagine if we had a working legitamite golos test net.... then we can hjire developers to make new versions of golos and we can test tjem and allow peopel to come post on them and we cna allow golos users with stake to all vote on which new system should be adopted, iand iof we HAD a working test net we ccould then create our new Golos and show opeople just how fun it can be!

I am sure you are already aware of this.. I am sure you know all of this.. i write this so OTHER peopel can learn! I should make more posts about golos on my steemit page

If there is any information you would lke me to post on my steemit page, let me know, i have a few thousand followers to influenceon steemit and i always make sure to advertise golos and how cheapo the price is, how it is a good deal to buy Golos at 10 cents becauise it will be $1 soon when we make our changes... and so please just message me on discord when u have something youd like me to mention in my steemit posts, because if somethingis very important i would LOVE to help you broadcast it and i will even Boost it with @booster so important projects can find an audience

Again i apologize for my anger and bad attitude and being rude.

that is just a (minor) bug fix and features release, not a consensus release. no need to upgrade. Only when hardforking it is necessary. You are mixing things up. Sorry man. Almost none of the witnesses run that for signing blocks btw. Please read up and inform yourself.

Additionally I DONT FRICKING LIKE YOU CAPSLOCKING ME. See you on the discord.

LOl you should come on discord chat more often! where have you been? Why dont more golos people come to Golos rising chat? Its never as full as our steemspeak.com chat!

why wont more people come in and actualy communicate and organize? You realize we will be buying up all of golos from under the cyber fund leadership? people like us can take over golos now, its ripe for teh snatching!

we can actually make it GREAT and FAIR and USABLE and golos can become better than VK or Russian Instagram!
