Feathercoin daemon and wallet production version 0.17.0.2

Full Node

    So first I cant post in the Feathercoin Discussion category anymore, I cant even reply to my own thread that I started a few weeks ago. Not sure why so Im posting here.

    So I just setup my second Full node (supernode or whatever you want to call it) for Feathercoin. The first one I setup on an Ubuntu server on DIgitalOcean.com. It took me awhile as Im not very gifted with Linux but I managed. Typically I see about 80 active connections and it only costs me $10 a month to help the network. The second one I just setup on my home network using a Win7 VM. I limited it to only 25 connections as I only have a 5mb upload and I also run a Bitcoin and Litecoin node, but its better than nothing. The advantage of Feathercoin over the others is a much smaller blockchain to download and store.

    For those who would like to setup a digitalocean server, here is my referral link https://www.digitalocean.com/?refcode=d019219d1467 I think you endup with a $10 credit by using it and I get a credit as well.

    I was going to post a guide to set it up but as I said Im not very good at Linux so I wouldnt be able to answer any questions or help much… I just fumbled my way through it. 🙂

    I have checked you permissions, and everything looks fine.
    There are very rare cases a user, who already was member of the old forum, has to place one initial post, to get back the right to post everywhere.

    As you placed a post here, you should be able to post everywhere again now.

    Odd, yeah it looks like I now can post there again. Thanks!

    Hey everyone. I’ve now fixed this issue. Could someone please confirm?


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Well it solves the problem, that existing members can’t post to some groups, but now newbies can post everywhere again. This makes spam fighting a bit more complicated.

    The problem is, that you can’t take away rights, and everybody including the newbies is a registered user. So, if you grant all registered users to create topics and post also newbies can post everywhere.

    But this is leading in a new direction.

    Should we create a category ‘forum administration’ and discuss such issues there?

    I don’t think this is too sensitive to talk about here, although it is off topic. Since existing members don’t get moved to the elevated membership group until after creating another post, I suggest we leave the current rules in place until such a time as all existing members have been moved over to the new group. New members are not a problem.

    I wasn’t referring to a private category, but thought, that the discussion leaves the original point of existing members not being able to post to a discussion about server rights and configuration, so it should move to a separated topic.
