Devtome / WYSIWYG linux app for writing for devtome?
« Last post by merockstar on February 17, 2014, 06:48:29 am »
is there a good one that I can use so I can just sit and write, and use it like a normal word processor, and have it save my raw devtome source in a txt file?

Another Update:

When I installed devcoin, it first said to close other applications, so I closed 3 wallets. 

No that I installed it, I'm only able to open memorycoin. Doge and Bit attempts I get a pop up that says can't find a lock on it and it's probably already running.

Haven't heard anything for a couple days here.

I went ahead and uninstall devcoin from my computer and just reinstalled it.

I'll need to put in my new address over at devtome. Hopefully that's something that is doable.

My latest now is something I notice on the first install. I do not see it synching the way other wallets do. There is not out of sync notice and no green bar, or weeks/days/hour behind notice.

I it showing an ever increasing number for blocks though and 2 connections.

Does that seem to be alright?

Hello Folks!

I'm asquirrel and I just registered a few minutes ago.  I'm looking forward to learning more about Devcoin and working in this community!
Devtome / Earn Devcoins By Marketing?
« Last post by bomac on February 13, 2014, 07:49:55 pm »

I'm trying to understand the data on the Earn Devcoins By Marketing page.

I will line by line copy and paste what I know I'm unclear on.

Under INCOME it states:

Publishers can get earnings for a link to devtome on their web site, for a link in their signature, and for a link in their posts.

1) Can I get coins for each of my websites I link to Devtome on?  Is the link to use?

2) When it says a signature link and posts, is that referring to any online forum?

Under LINK it says:

Publishers get 1/5 of a generation share for a devtome link on a subpage or subdomain, 2/5 for of a share for a link on a domain name, and 3/5 of a share for a devtome leaderboard (728 x 90) banner on a domain name.

Links or ads on up to five domain name homepages will be counted. Only one subdomain link or ad will be counted, and it will not be counted if there is a homepage listed.

1) So, am I correct in understanding that the way to get the maximum payout for linking is to have five top level domains with a Devtome leaderboard banner on each of the home pages?

2) Is there are positioning requirement, like, very top of the page; above the folder; not in the bottom third, etc., etc.

Under POSTS it says:

Publishers get 1/5 of a share if the first five listed posts on the bitcoin forum, with devtome links in them, total more than 100 words, and 2/5 of a share if those posts total more than 1,000 words

1) This is referring to each member, rather than to the one member with the first five posts. Right?

2) Those first five post with devtome links can come at any point in that forum usage? For instance, it doesn't have to be within X number of posts?

3) These five posts need to have links to devtome in the message, and not the signature?  (If so, I presume it's not going to get us throws out for TOS violations, like other forums have.)

Under SIGNATURE it says:

Publishers who put a devtome link in their signature get 1/5 of a share. If the publisher has made more than 1,000 posts, they get 2/5 of a share. An example of a signature with a devtome link follows:

1) Just to be crystal clear... We are talking about forum, again. Right?

2) Just to be crystal clear... These are one-time payouts. Yes?

3) Is it just me, or does that seem like a giant chasm between 1/5 for merely making a signature, and 2/5 for creating 1,000 posts? I might be missing something, (an all too online experience for me.)   ;D

Thanks so much for your help!
Devtome / Linking Protocol
« Last post by bomac on February 13, 2014, 06:41:55 pm »
What are the rules regarding outbound links?

Are links discouraged, encouraged, allowed, not allowed?

If allowed, how are spam links policed?  Seems like it could get out of hand, quickly.
Devtome / Collated Clarification Needed
« Last post by bomac on February 13, 2014, 06:35:45 pm »
One of the myriad of things I"m hazy on is the collated issue.

I read somewhere that if you are publishing something you previously published on another website, that it goes into the collated section.

I think there is another type of writing that also goes there, which seems very different.  I believe you can take someone's article on devtome and add to it in an attempt to improve upon it, and you would post it in the collated section.

I'm not even sure how that would work and I'm not really interested in doing it, at least at this point in time.  But I do wonder how it works.

Do you basically copy and paste the original and then delete and edit and rearrange paragraphs?

Or is it a matter of referring to the article and summarizing it briefly and then write your reaction to it, and any additional information you might have on the subject?

I read something about needing to pay the original author. Is that something you are just assumed to do, on the honor system or do you get paid less, and the admins send coin to the original author?

When you are post your own work from other websites (which I understand you will be asked to prove it is yours by posting on the site), do you get paid the same amount you would be paid if it was published in the original source section?

Lastly, how do you get notified when there is action required for your article to be published? Do the admins email you, or is it a matter of logging in and either seeing an immediate notice, or having to go to say, your profile page to look for the notice?

Thanks for your help!
Devtome / Re: How to backup MY Devcoins
« Last post by bomac on February 13, 2014, 06:19:46 pm »
Where is that other question? I'd like to know the answer, myself.

I clicked on the members name, hoping it would lead me to a page of links to other posts, but no such luck.

Or if anyone can just answer it in this thread, it would be much appreciated.
