FutureICX AMA with nblaze (Midos) and the ICON Pilipinas Community
Hello ICONists! Today we’re happy to outline and highlight the intricate components of FutureICX, our vision for the dapp’s future and the reason for its creation through this AMA with ICON Pilipinas. Many community members have highlighted questions they’d like answered and were happy to discuss the foundations of our project, our ideas and how FutureICX differentiates itself from other gamified trading applications within the blockchain sphere! We look forward to answering all of your questions! nblaze: Hey everyone! As most of you probably know I’m nblaze from ICON P-Rep team Midos and together with the P-Rep team Sharpn we have built the FutureICX.io app, which was released earlier this week. This has been quite a long and exciting journey which started almost a year ago and we are all very excited that we have finally been able to achieve such a successful app release with so much positive feedback coming in our direction. Jenny: How did you come up with the idea for FutureICX and how was this project started? nblaze: Well, as a long-term holder of ICX, I have always been fascinated by ICON’s system and was looking into ways to contribute to it. I began extensive research surrounding the best P-Rep teams to delegate my ICX to, but somehow this did not feel enough, and I wanted to do more for the chain (and respectively for my investment). After jumping through a lot of different plans and ideas, including lotteries, raffles, games, payment systems etc., I noticed that a lot of people in the trading channels love to make predictions; long story short, approximately half a year later I partnered with the Sharpn P-Rep team. We’re extremely grateful for a Grant that the ICON Foundation and the ICONation teams provided us and we continue to press forward with amazing results. Jay: Throughout the entire development journey, there's sure to be plenty of ups and downs experienced. What's one particular fond memory that stands out to you the most? nblaze: Oh, I would need to go all the way back to the planning phase of FutureICX. I had gone to bed pretty late one night as I was very excited about the Dapp idea, but somehow, I constantly kept hitting a brick wall in trying to figure out how it would work. No matter what I thought of, several hours of planning later I have thought of something critical that would be a major issue. That night I was tired and honestly becoming a bit discouraged that I would never find a system that would work. After going to sleep, I woke up approximately an hour later with a clear idea about the system that I would like to use for FutureICX. I had no sleep from this moment onwards, just got to my computer and worked on it all night. It was really an ‘Eureka’ moment that I'm quite fond of. Jenny: What are your plans, either near-term or longer-term now that FutureICX has been released? nblaze: Of course, we are still working on FutureICX’s current state and are making sure that everything is running well. The app is stable, and players are happy with it. We have already started making plans for our next development stage through and although I cannot share very much, I can tell you that we are aiming for 3 additional original trading games, additional trading pair predictions and maybe even different crypto payment options. Hopefully everything will go well, and we would be able to reach those targets (and who knows, maybe more). Twitter and Telegram follower questions theanerz: What is the Mission and Vision of FutureICX? nblaze: I like this question as it is simple and yet very complicated to answer. FutureICX is aiming to be a multi-purpose platform that could be used by a wide range of players. It could be used as a mean to get additional gains from trading, as a learning tool, as a proof-of-skill or even as a fun app that you can have fun and gamble on. It is also very beneficial to the ICON chain as it not only creates transactions, it could also be a replacement of the ‘exchange’ trading in which no ICX are leaving the system (thus reducing sell pressure and increasing the price of ICX) and finally as a tool which can reduce the circulating supply as the ICX tokens placed in predictions are locked until the outcome is processed. I wrote an article a few days ago about this exact topic – what has inspired us to make the app and what are the benefits of using it. Anyone interested can find it at this link: https://forum.icon.community/t/futureicx-io-vs-conventional-trading-article/1069 ricnnobre: FutureICX is a platform for traders and therefore a minimum of knowledge in technical analysis is needed to predict where the value of ICX is going. Doesn't that restrict the audience that will use the platform? nblaze: True, the platform is for the most part aimed at traders, however most people that trade in it are not professionals. This allows for beginner traders to have a tool where they can compete with a lot of similar skilled traders instead of professionals, whales and institutional traders and this makes FutureICX a good learning tool to use. The prediction times are also fixed so this eliminates second-guessing and reacting emotionally on a trade that you have already set. As you are not competing against the bank, this also gives the players the opportunity to progress with their prediction sizes as they get better and even potentially make a living out of this if they are good enough and hit their predictions on a regular basis. It can of course also be used as a fun gambling tool as a lot of traders seem to be using the exchanges for that anyway. RGerburt: DApps in which users spend money without obtaining any benefit causes loss of interest over time. Does FutureICX have any form of reward for traders who fail to succeed in their predictions? How to maintain the loyalty of users, mainly those who are not good traders? nblaze: We have put in great efforts in trying to be helpful to such players. FutureICX offers dividend returns (each 1 icx that you spend gives you 1 dividend point and the dividend points respectively give you a % of the dividend pool, which is 10% of the amount of ICX that all players spend, at the end of the week – you can see details of that on top of the main screen and in the ‘help’ section, which is the place where our system’s theory is located). One of our awards also gives returns to the player that has spent the most. If that doesn’t work, you can always go for an ‘influencer’ strategy and have your friends and followers generate dividends for you (every 1 icx spent by someone that registered via your affiliate link gives you 0.5 dividend points) lavicrep69: They call us Betlords of the Icon Pilipinas we are one of many supporters of FutureICX. I just would like to know, because for us statistics and achievements are really a big deal. I saw the "Tropies (Sniper, Marksman, Cannoneer, Monthly) and the ICX reward" that you will get from consistent playing/predicting. I’m just wondering if you have global ranking of top players on each trophy or tier like a data base link on blockchain that we can always check to improve our standing? And will we have a "copy prediction options?” I’m sure it will be a good idea coz we can follow players and see their statistics. nblaze: There are such options, but we are planning to expand on those. In your ‘Profile’ page you can see how many awards you have earned, the most recent ones and how much you have earned through them. The monthly awards are also giving a monthly ranking of the top 10 players and giving them rewards for it. However, we do understand that we will need to and will improve even more in this direction nhene00: The market today has a lot of development projects on the blockchain platform. One of the factors that makes the platform appealing to many users is its special features. So, what are the outstanding features and advantages of FutureICX to attract users and investors? nblaze: We truly believe that our app was designed in a really unique way. You have the exchanges, binary options and futures on one hand, you have the raffles, lotteries, casinos and games on the other. We try to be none of those and to provide a new experience to our players. We also think that we offer a unique system, created from scratch, that benefits a lot of different types of players and strategies. As every other platform though, we would need the users/community’s support and feedback in order to progress even further. We do not believe that this will be an issue with ICON’s community though. ThomaXMiller: How will the dividends/point system work? When will the $3000 Pool be distributed? nblaze: You earn dividend points with every prediction that you and your affiliates make, and you get a % of all prediction amounts respectively to the amount of points that you have at the end of the week CHARLoTTE9o: If it’s less risky and much more profitable for traders, how will you and the whole team benefit from this? nblaze: The app has built in 5% commission, that is how we profit (you can see the full details in the 'help' page of the app). It is also not much more profitable for all traders of course; it simply provides better opportunities (according to our own deductions of course) than a normal exchange would. Ketz23: DeFi is one of the hottest topics in the blockchain space right now. Can $ICX share your opinions on DeFi with us? Do you think that DeFi will disrupt the existing financial system? What is Unification approach towards the DeFi sector? nblaze: I don’t think that I’m qualified enough to give such comprehensive opinion in Defi in general I’m afraid. willydavec1: You mentioned earlier about gambling, more games to play, In this era where there are tons of cryptocurrency gambling addicts, do you have any plans to minimize their addiction? A good project needs to care for its users/gamblers/players. Do you have any plans for them, any limitations? For example, 1000 USD worth of loss, they must be restricted for a few hours, something like that. nblaze: I believe that it would be hard to get addicted to our app - its 1 prediction/day or week, that is not a major concern imo. Also please keep in mind that this is no gambling application - you are not playing against the house and you can easily be profitable long term. So, an 'addiction' could mean improving your trading skills and making a living out of this. Neajmik: The hardest thing about any business is not building a product. What is often the hardest is getting people to use the product. How will FUTUREICX team resolve this to make your project become mass adopted and be more attractive in investotraders eyes? nblaze: True, we are doing our best from the app's side - getting feedback, building a product that our players like, promoting it to the best of our abilities. I think that the rest is up to the actual players: if they like it, they will naturally promote the product. I also think that the affiliate system would help a lot with that as a player could earn by being a 'promoter' and not even playing a single game (although not playing would limit his potential gains). SiliLovers: How does it feel after the first daily prediction was resolved earlier? nblaze: Amazing. 2500 ICX placed in predictions on the first day, quite a bit of positive feedback, happy winners all around. I love it! lavicrep69: If I am an ICONist and use d’apps like ICONbet how will you convince me to play FutureICX if it was my first time? nblaze: We wouldn’t. We believe that ICONBet has their own player market and we have ours. The activities on both platforms are completely different so there will be no need to pull players from one to the other. ICONists could play easily play on both and be equally happy with their experience Neajmik: What are the ways that FUTUREICX generates profits to maintain your project and how can it benefit both investotraders and your project simultaneously? nblaze: We have a 5% commission for that, so we don’t actually aim to benefit from the players' losses, on the contrary, we try to limit them for the less experienced traders. That is why each prediction amount is split into: 80% into the selected reward period pool, 5% towards the weekly/monthly awards, 10% towards the dividends and 5% to our team so we can keep improving the Dapp. That gives players opportunities to gain, even if their prediction did not come true HiImGroot: What are your plans for global expansion; is FutureICX focusing on only trading at this time or are you focused on building and developing your Dapp for more quality experience with users? nblaze: We’re hoping that with the second phase of our app we will be able to go into different crypto markets as well. This is still a long shot of a plan and requires a lot of variables to piece together but if we are able to do this, that would generate ICX transactions (as our Dapp is fully based on the ICON chain) while we are processing predictions that are payed with other cryptocurrencies. matT325: Where do you see FutureICX 2 or 3 years from now? nblaze: As a large gamified trading platform with a lot of players, many more trading games and options and working with a lot of different chains and projects while generating icx transactions in the process. LadyCrows: To advertise a project, you need to provide benefits and features, security aspects of the project. How does FutureICX differ from other decentralized trading applications? nblaze: There are quite a bit, so I’m not sure that I can list all of them in one short message. We have multiple gain channels, tiered rewards, dividends, awards, independent affiliate gains, our Dapp is fully decentralized (so every transaction is secure and verifiable), we are using a decentralized oracle for results (fairness and security), our tx process time is short and recorded on the chain thanks to ICON as well. ThePredator11: Why did you choose this platform name "FutureICX? nblaze: This was entirely a team Sharpn contribution. I picked Midos as an app name - they suggested FutureICX and we went with it and kept Midos as the name of my P-Rep instead. CryptoHodler22: If you put in an amount of $ICX for a long term prediction you can't stake them. Is there a form of divided for long-term wages? nblaze: That is absolutely correct – you would not receive any staking rewards for the duration of the prediction and that is the main reason that we have not set up a ‘monthly’ prediction or something like that. FutureICX is not aimed to make long-term holders to unstake their bags and come play. It is focused on the circulating ICX that instead of going to the exchanges, can come to ICX and have greater benefits from that. In terms of if the players are not losing from locking their ICX into a prediction on FutureICX, instead of staking them, the staking rewards for 10 days are around 0.2% - with FutureICX the rewards start from 120% and you could earn up to 450%/day if you know what you are doing I think that as with anything else, you have to balance your targets and decide what would be the best strategy for your money Ramle13747634: What is the greatest risk that you've taken before you do the first move of making the FutureICX that was released recently? Is it worth it to take the risk? nblaze: I think that building FutureICX was a very large risk in itself for me as in order for the project to see the light of day, I have personally spent almost an year working on it without any payment so far (while financing some parts of the app’s development out of my own pocket) and without any guarantees that I would be able to finish it. However I think that it was worth the risk and I would definitely do it again – I have not done this app to make money and have no delusions that it will make me rich or something. Im just happy that Im seeing it live and players loving it so far. This motivates me to develop FutureICX even further and provide even more fun experiences for the Iconists Neajmik: You received a lot of questions related to utilities and technology, future vision etc. So now I want to ask what do you want to receive from the community? nblaze: The greatest support that we can receive from the community is spreading the word about our app, about your opinion of it (good or bad it doesn’t matter – you are entitled of your own). At the end of the day, we have designed the app to be attractive to newcomers and to reward properly the proactive players assisting us with that task (via the affiliate bonuses), however our PR resources are limited and we would appreciate any help that we could get. So if I have to summarize – talk with people, brag, show off, discuss, even rant about FutureICX to people, it will all be of help to us and will also earn you extra gains 😉.
me_irlgbt survey results! really long post! this took me 6 days! exclamation mark!
Long post. REALLY long post. buckle in.
TLDR at the end
First off, thanks to everybody who responded! There were 467 responses in total, which is amazing. I know filling out surveys online can be boring, so I really appreciate you all indulging me for this. A few notes before we get started!
The aim of this research was to get a better picture of the people who involve themselves in this shitposty mess. Nothing was too strenuous, and as this was basically just research for funsies, it’s obviously not fully academic. I did try to follow general good practices, but I’ve also fucked about a little. This isn’t going in a fancy journal.
I have presented the data with the finest graphs Google Sheets has to offer. I am not an expert in using spreadsheets, so some of it may be, in academic terms, somewhat fucky.
I am not an especially adept researcher or statistician. I’m studying this shit in college but that doesn’t mean I’m good at it yet. I know we get some researchers round these parts, and I’d thank you to not cringe too hard at my work.
Now. Let's get started with the results.
Total survey responses: 467
AGE: 460 responses
https://imgur.com/thGOvqi As we can see here, the majority of respondents are between the ages of 13-24, with most being 18-24. No surprise, this pretty much tracks with the general demographics of reddit. We have 3 tiny kiddos who responded, bless them. One person over 60, heyhowareyougorge. It’s interesting to cross-reference the age demographics with the type of posts we see here. I’m in my early 20s, which in gay years is like being in your early 40s, and i’ve been out for years. I see a lot of closet or coming out type posts, which I personally don’t relate to as much any more, but that totally tracks with the amount of youngins we have here. If you’re looking to karma whore, here’s the data you need.
COUNTRY: 457 responses
https://imgur.com/xwAb3g8 So, clearly very US-heavy. Again, not a surprise here for a US-based website. I would like to confess to purposefully splitting up the UK demographics out of sheer curiosity too; I’m Scottish and wanted to know how many fellow Scots I had. Happenin troops. I also wanted to use this to see how many people were from countries with less legal protections for being LGBT. The countries in here I’d particularly like to highlight are: Dominica, where it is illegal to be gay. Penalties include a 10 year prison sentence, or “incarceration in a psychiatric institution.” Absolutely no legal protections for any LGBT people. That’s pretty fucked. India has no legally recognised same sex unions, no same sex marriage, no adoption, but all of these things have been proposed. some anti-discrimination laws. They have a third gender option, called hijra. Trans people do have some legal recognition of gender, which is nice. As far as I’m aware, this situation is pretty unique to India. Qatar, where same-sex sexual activity is punished by fines, imprisonment, or the death penalty. Obviously no legal protections. Russia, where same-sex sexual activity is technically legal, but in Chechnya, it is heavily punished. Gay people are abducted and sent to concentration camps in this region. Russia has done little to prevent this. Singapore, where there is technically punishment of up to 2 years in prison for male same-sex sexual activity, but this is apparently not enforced any more. F/F is legal though. Malaysia, where it remains illegal to be gay. Punishments can be up to 20 years in prison, fines, or whippings, just for engaging in same-sex sexual activity. However, a 2016 court ruling did recognise gender changes as a fundamental constitutional right, according to wikipedia. I’d like us to take a moment to remember, especially if you’re from the US, that the fight for LGBT rights is far from over. It’s not some distant thing. Even people on this good gay subreddit could face severe punishments for their identity. If you are in a country with legal protections, take a moment to be thankful. If you can, please educate yourself on the state of LGBT rights in these countries, and see if you can do anything to help.
ETHNICITY: 463 responses
https://imgur.com/hk6KINj Again, not particularly surprising results here. Reddit is a pretty overwhelmingly white website. I’m a full blown white person so I’m not sure how much I can really say here without verging out of my own lane. I do think we should keep this in mind however, because as a largely white subreddit we may not have so many people calling out racism when they see it. I don’t want POC to feel ignored here just because they make up a smaller percentage of our demographics, so I welcome any POC responses here as to how we’re doing with that. I personally haven’t seen too much racism, as the bigotry we tend to get is centred around our lgbt identities. Whenever I see it it tends to be anti-black, and usually confined to usernames. I do try to ban that whenever I see it, but I’m only one person, so I do rely on you to report things to me!
GENDER: 467 responses
https://imgur.com/GOMLltE https://imgur.com/BY9eRfU Now, this is the one I’ve had to go in and fuck with. This, and all the other charts, are basically just the raw data in visual form. The chart above is each individual response, allowing for those who selected multiple options. So, rather than counting every time someone selected “male”, then “nonbinary”, etc, it’s counting every time a person selected “male + cisgender,” “nonbinary + queer”, if that makes sense. This chart here is the one I’ve fucked with, that just has the amount of times an option was selected. https://imgur.com/ejdAKm9 I basically simplified the data here. Whenever someone said something like unsure, unknown, etc, this was put under “questioning”. The “other” responses are the only ones that received significant editing. These were long-form responses that could not be parsed into simple answers, so here they are in their entirety.
“Something like that lol”
“I don’t have one of these ‘gender identities’ everyone keeps talking about”
“Lol i’m absolutely fucked and i have no idea”
“What is this ‘gender’ you speak of”
“My sex is female”
Now, I could probably have parsed them into other categories, but honestly I thought this was more entertaining. Some important things to remember when reading this data! * I collected it pretty poorly. I wasn’t aware of how google would collate it and i done goofed a bit. Take it with a pinch of salt. * once i “simplified” the data to look at how many times each option was selected, I ended up with almost 800 pieces of data. You’ll recall that only 467 people responded to the survey, so there is significant overlap. This is why I'm showing you two versions. The crossover is not fully clear, and there’s probably ways I could process this data better, but i’m gonna be real with y'all it’s a lot to wade through and I'm honestly just bad at this * This question allowed people to choose as many or as few labels as they wanted. Some people listed their gender as just “transgender” with no other qualifiers, for example. Therefore this data should be treated as only a partial picture of the gender demographics of this subreddit
PRONOUNS: 464 responses
https://imgur.com/lsP8661 Again, I arguably messed up on the collection of results here, BUT, I do think it’s very interesting to see the combinations of pronouns people use. For example, I think it’s cool to see that, among those who use they/them pronouns
25 respondents use they/them as their only pronouns
31 use he/him and they/them
30 use she/her and they/them
Now obviously it’s gonna be difficult to argue for these results to be generalised to the population at large, but this does support what I’ve seen anecdotally for a while; neutral pronouns are often used alongside non-neutral pronouns. We might not have seen this if I had been a better researcher. Here is the version with my own editing, simplification, and parsing of “other” results: https://imgur.com/6sR4w3U Other results are as follows, presented without comment
”A variety of neopronouns”
”Whatever is right in the moment”
”in the closet for everyone except online friends”
”well i would use those pronouns if i was out or if anyone respected them lmao help me”
”the normal ones”
”All? IDK it’s been a very confusing time”
”he/him among general public, they/them among close friends but out in public, would like to use she/her but only when out and fully transitioned”
”I don't know what this means”
Among neopronoun usage, we have specific examples of: * ve/ver * it/its If we put this alongside the “other” responses that indicate neopronoun usage, we can say that 5 of our respondents use, or are comfortable using, neopronouns. I think this is an interesting point to highlight, because common transphobe rhetoric is that people are using a “confusing” variety of pronouns. We have a generally trans-friendly sub (at least I hope so), and out of 464 respondents to this question, only 5 people indicated neopronoun usage. Could it be that this line of thinking, that people are using confusing newfangled pronouns, is just an uninformed scream from the ignorant?
SEXUALITY: 467 responses
https://imgur.com/CXVxEKc Again, raw data. For this one I don’t feel it’s super necessary to go in and parse out who picked multiple things, because the data here seems kinda straightforward, if you’ll pardon the pun. We have a lot of bi and pan people here. Again, it’s difficult to argue for the generalisation of these results, but this does support evidence of bisexual people making up the majority of the LGBT community. If we compare this to the by now well known findings from the Kinsey institute, this does support the belief that most people are likely neither a Kinsey 1 or a Kinsey 6, but somewhere in the middle. It’s not directly comparable because I didn’t use the same metrics, but it’s interesting to think about. I also think it’s interesting to see so many straight respondents. Of course, this could just be trans people who are straight, but I know from the comments I’ve received that some people who responded are totally non-LGBT, just allies. Also, shoutouts to “an absolute mess” and “just desperate for love”. Same, babes.
EDUCATION: 461 responses
There were enough “other” responses that I felt like I needed to go in and take those out, so here’s the raw data before I did that. https://imgur.com/eguYGeK And here is the simplified version https://imgur.com/DZClNVV Here are the “Other” responses
have not completed high forms of education
IDK not american
middle school (x4)
wasn't allowed to go to school by parents, currently studying for high school entrance exam
2nd year degree
in 5th year of phd but no master's earned on the way
professional degree (Juris Doctor)
certificate of achievement, 1yr college
What’s a diploma
My favourite response is “IDK not american”. As we all know, education only exists in America. Anyway, this pretty much tracks along the age demographics. With a population mostly aged between 13-24, it makes sense that the majority are high school or college educated. Of course, it should be kept in mind that not everybody’s education is a linear or traditional experience, and won’t completely track with our age demographics. Shoutouts to the 3-4 people with PhDs tho, mad respect. And that wraps up our demographics section! Onto some of the cool shit.
PERSONAL LIFE SECTION
POLITICAL ALIGNMENT: 477/467
https://imgur.com/TUQNBVJ Here’s the raw data. As you can see, there’s a lot of write-in responses. If you’ve spent any time hanging out on this subreddit, I don’t think it’s any shock to see how overwhelmingly left-leaning we are. I think this sort of goes with the territory of being an LGBT subreddit though, we do tend to develop liberal politics as an attempt to avoid homophobia and transphobia, and then from there it’s easy to fall into leftist politics, especially on places like Reddit. Simplified data: https://imgur.com/isja5Kc Other responses:
Don’t have these words in AUS
I have a hard time understanding all the different words, but I know I’m the opposite of Donald Trump
Hard to say since these terms mean slightly different things in different places/political climates
Whoever isn't a racist bigot
slutty sjw whos ready to bust a fat nut and shoot capitalists
angry *Governmental axis: libertarian. Economic axis: centrist. Social axis: progressive
I don't have a strict political alignment, I just think that every politician can have good ideas whatever their alignment is
I vote based on the current goals of each party
regulated markets, welfare capitalism, taco trucks on every corner. thank you for coming to my ted talk.
Whatever is Civil Rights
no one changes anything but rich mens pocket books
Prefer not to say
We’re clearly a very left-leaning subreddit here. I think it’s interesting that out of a total of 447 responses, only 9 disclosed that they were on the right-hand side of the political spectrum. Is this because only 4% of people round these parts are on the right, or is due to an unwillingness to identify with conservative politics, even on an anonymous survey? Difficult to know for sure. Interesting data tho amirite. Also whoever answered “slutty sjw whos ready to bust a fat nut”, same girl
Raw data: https://imgur.com/oQQWZH9 Again, a fuckfest here, but even before we go in and parse things out we can see that 336/460 indicate atheist or agnostic beliefs. This sort of goes along with my hypothesis/unscientific belief that a majority of LGBT people are non-religious, or will find religion themselves later on. I personally would love to do research on the prevalence of found religion in later life, especially pagan/wiccan type beliefs, in LGBT people. I think a lot of us do really desire that sort of connection to spirituality, but can’t always get it from the religions we were raised in. This is from my perspective as a western white person raised around christian/catholic beliefs; I know there’s differences with, for example, Judaism, where it’s fully baked into the culture to question and argue with your own beliefs, so I know there’s a hell of a lot of cultural bias going into this assumption. Simplified data https://imgur.com/FimSsoh I’ve kept Atheist/agnostic as separate categories, grouped the different Satanism responses, and again created an “other” category. Other responses:
Both Christian and agnostic
I don't believe in a conscious force making decisions, but there is some sort of force underlying the physical world
idk man. dudeism?
Its a mix
None (not explicitly atheist or agnostic, just...ehhhhh)
Given that this is Reddit, I’m not surprised by the high amount of atheist/agnostic responses, given that the site still has a strong legacy left behind by the glory days of /atheist. With this bias in mind, I do still think this presents a compelling basis for further research on the religious affiliations of LGBT people.
RELATIONSHIP STATUS 465/467
https://imgur.com/vcrZae3 This one actually didn’t require much fucking with, so I’ve just presented the gently simplified data. Other responses
In a queer-platonic relationship
I walk a lonley road, the only one that i have ever known.
I’m not really sure rn
In a polyamorous relationship
I have a domme
On a crash course to divorce :(
Wow we’re a single lot aren’t we Honestly I think this correlates with the age demographics. If I were a better data analyst I’d go in and confirm this with the data, but I’m not, so I won’t. Knowing that we have a lot of younger people, who are more likely to have either no relationship or a frequently changing/unstable relationship status, this kinda seems about right. It would be interesting though to compare this with relationship data from other LGBT communities. I think we all know the struggles of finding available partners, especially when you are, as the data suggests, in high school or college. It’d be interesting to see if the high rate of single people here is due to a desire to seek out other LGBT people in order to gain a sense of community as well. Maybe LGBT people in a relationship feel they already have enough of a sense of community and belonging and are therefore less likely to seek out LGBT spaces online. That’ll require some good qualitative data tho which is time consuming. Could be really cool tho.
[Dislike] However, I do not condone jokes of violence against Terfs
I don't even know what that is.
I don't know or care what that means
I hate them so god damned much even the mention of the word terf makes me wanna punch a *wall then vomit.
I have never heard of this
I have no idea who they are
Idk bout them
Never heard of them
Not sure exactly what that means but if I understand it right I dislike them because I support transgender people
strongly dislike is not enough
[just a transphobic pro-terf comment]
strongly dislike isn't strong enough.
TERF is a slur lol
terfs r trash
They can go to hell
They have no place
Too little experience with them to form a meaningful opinion
we should set them on fire
trans rights babey
I think this is a pretty conclusive result. Of the 29 “other” responses, 20 of them indicate Dislike to Strongly Dislike. 5 respondents said Strongly Like, and 1 said Like. These respondents were the only ones who also put in positive “other” responses. 82% of responses were Strongly Dislike. This is honestly going to inform my moderation style. I always remove outwardly transphobic comments, especially if they mirror the “rational people” comment in the responses above. However, seeing such a strong dislike of TERFs will likely mean I’ll remove more comments that are gently TERFy but not as explicit. I do want to reiterate, this is a feminist space. I personally am a strong feminist. I hold some more radical feminist views. I also believe trans women are women, they have a place in the feminist movement, and in women’s spaces. You can absolutely be a trans INCLUSIVE radical feminist. Feminism is almost useless without intersectionality. Trans people are valid and welcomed here. Transphobia will never be tolerated here. Not up for debate.
At first glance, this notion makes sense to me, but I know to little about the issue to form a meaningful opinion
Dissagree w/ but not dislike as people
Don't know whether they're right or wrong since I'm not trans therefore can't confirm shit
I can understand where they're coming from, but i think it's a harmful ideology all the same
I don't agree transition is necessary, since sometimes staying in the closet is the only way to survive. But dysphoria of some kind is necessary.
I don't understand how people can be trans if they've never experienced Dysphoria. Not being a dick, i just can't find an explaination.
I get where they're coming from
I have no opinion. If somebody says they're trans, all i want are their preferred pronouns.
I haven't heard about this before, I'd have to read up on it before giving an opinion!
I just need to shout about the exclusionary nature of the stance
I think dysphoria is necessary, but not medically transitioning
I’d err on the side of caution because it sounds like it could be ehhh. I don’t know enough about *the trans part of the LGBT+ community to properly answer this one
I’m not sure about them yet
It isnt nessacsry but many people do experience it
Neutral as long as they aren’t excessively pushy or rude about it.
New to this concept tbh
Non-binary trans is still trans.
Not enough reading or research done on my part to have an informed opinion
Not familiar with this topic enough to say
punch them too
Therapists should treat it
There is background to their points but their attitude stunts progress for all trans people
they're very flammable too
trans people are trans regardless of what gender affirmations, if any, they choose to undergo. ❤️
trans rights babey
uncle terfs, more or less.
wanting to be a different gender = gender dysphoria, so 90% of the time transmedicalism is just *pointless gatekeeping
This is the one I definitely needed trans people’s opinions on. I am cis-ish (androgynous butchy lesbian who occasionally likes a cheeky they/them pronoun but is for all intents and purposes a woman/dyke) and so feel entirely unqualified to weigh in and decide which side of the issue is “correct”.
56.2% of responses indicate either Dislike or Strongly Dislike transmedicalists
Of the “other” responses, 15/29 indicate a dislike or disagreement with transmedicalist ideology
There is a large amount of “neutral” or “no opinion” responses. I can assume a lot of these are from cis people who, like me, feel unqualified to weigh in.
This is also likely to inform my moderation style somewhat. Again, I always remove blatant transphobia when I see it, and this includes anybody stating that nonbinary people are not valid, not real, etc. From these results, I’m going to assume this is the right move, and continue with this strategy. I personally lean towards not believing in transmedicalism. Some of this may very well stem from my feminist views, but I generally think gender is extremely fluid, and that labels are only worth what the individual believes they represent. If any of you have an understanding of sociology, I tend towards a Weberian/symbolic interactionist approach towards labels in general. Therefore I believe whatever a person identifies as is probably the right identity for them, regardless of what I may think of it. This isn’t necessarily relevant to your understanding of the survey, but it may be relevant to your understanding of my moderation actions. That wraps up this section! This was a long one, thanks for sticking with us <3
THOUGHTS ON THE SUBREDDIT 457/467
https://imgur.com/VUwfXtq Finally, some data i don’t need to fuck around with. Note to self, do more ratings like this. Obviously as a mod I’m happy to see that opinions trend above 5 here. The average score we’re getting here is 7.87 (2dp) and honestly, I’m down. If that was a movie on IMDB, that shit would be a pretty well-received movie. The most frequent response here is 8/10, and most responses are between 7-10, which tells me people generally enjoy hanging out here. I know there’s always a strong chance for bias here, because the people who are likely to respond to a kinda long survey for a subreddit are likely to be people who either really enjoy it, or really don’t. However, even with that bias, I’m gonna just take the W if that’s cool with you.
THOUGHTS ON MODERATION 445/467
https://imgur.com/pmkKyuC Slightly lower trend than overall subreddit opinions, but the average is almost the same at 7.73 (2dp). Since sending out this survey I have made some slight tweaks to my moderation style, as well as making some additions to the automoderator. We’ll chat about that later. I’m glad the overall trend here is positive though; I don’t want this to be a place where you all just end up resenting me.
i dont have a reddit account, and i very rarely check comments. I dont think i'm the best person to answer this.
I dont pay attention enough to say
I just discovered this subreddit like yesterday so I don't really know
I think we need mods who do more than just let people police the sub themselves. We may only need a new mod if the current mods don’t change how they mod. Respond to reports is what I’m saying (I don’t see almost any removed comments ever)
idk i just enjoy the memes
idk im just lurking here
Idk. How many moderators do you have?
if they're good moderators
maybe? i think a little more mod participation would be cool. just seeing admins in comments laughing and joking along with us, and sharing in the memes. i enjoy the hands-off approach but that doesn't mean i don't ever wanna see more mods chilling out and sorta like.,..... making their presence known and joining in on the fun!!! yknow it makes it feel safer
no idea tbh but it seems to be running ok
So the general answer here is that we maybe need more mods. Far more people said no than said yes. Personal interpretation is that people may have felt more comfortable answering “maybe” than answering “yes”. I know that having one active mod for a 90k subreddit is not usual, and by now most subreddits will have gotten a couple more people in. I won’t speak for parlayv but, if you think i’m hands-off, she’s like, not even got hands. Hands not on this plane. We did create the subreddit together (IIRC I came up with the name and she was like “omg that needs to be a subreddit” and then, all of a sudden, it was) but I’m the one who pretty much runs it. I don’t think she’d take issue with me saying that. She’s too busy playing runescape and smoking weed anyway lmao So, given the general results, I will look at bringing more mods on. I’ll probably pull from people I know first, and if that doesn’t work, may open up applications later. If this happens you’ll all know about it. I’ll address some of the comments at the very end. Your concerns are not going unnoticed!
THOUGHTS ON RESEARCHERS 459/467
https://imgur.com/Px4XqGQ Another very similar score, but this time the most frequent response by far is a 10. Average score is 7.84 This one was kinda important for me. I made the decision to allow researchers to post their surveys here. Full disclosure, when researchers come to me in modmail, my key concern is that they’ve followed all ethical procedures. So far, every single one has been done through a university in an official capacity, which means they have to prove they’ve gone through the ethics of their work and it’s been approved before they can even start researching. Whenever I’ve checked them out they seem completely fine, and I’ve so far not received any complaints, which makes me feel good. I personally believe research is incredibly important for us to understand ourselves, as well as other people. I’m obviously biased as hell here because I’m a social sciences student but the whole reason I’m interested in this field is the benefits I believe it can bring to us. So if it’s cool with you all, I’m going to take this result as support for research posts. For now I don’t foresee any issues with frequency but we’ll revisit this if that becomes a problem. I’d like to give you all a sincere thank you for your positive reception to these posts <3
SHOULD WE BAN TERFS OR TRANSMEDICALISTS? 461/467
This question specified “regardless of rulebreaking”, meaning should they be banned on sight if they say they identify as either a TERF or a transmedicalist. I also meant if they posted in TERF or transmedicalist subreddits, but I didn’t specify this, so I won’t use that in my analysis of this data. https://imgur.com/o1fevKC Other responses
Allow them only if they don't say anything transphobic on me_irlgbt
ban 'em when they post inflammatory stuff to bait responses
allow transmeds to flair their posts/create separate sub
only ban Transmedicalists if they’re being dicks about it
don't know enough about transmedicalists to say
Ban transmedicalists, do not ban TERFs
Definitely ban TERFs, I just don't really know much about trans medicalists, so I feel weird making a definitive statement about them.
Definitely ban TERFs. I’m neutral on transmedicalists
Forum should not be allowed to become a hostile environment. They can easily do that.
I don't know the context behind transmedicalists but if they're anything like terfs then yes ban them
I think a distinction must be made between hate and ignorance. Obvious hate should naturally be answered with a ban, but rule-breaking content arising from possible ignorance should be met with a removal, private warning and, most importantly, directing the poster toward resources to educate themselves.
I think there is more ground to talk with transmedicalists but that I would prefer not to deal with them. TERFs should be banned regardless of circumstance.
I’m not sure how i feel about just “banning” people but i disagree with them both
if being mean
If making people uncomfortable
If they are strongly voicing there options, even in other sub, that may be harmful.
Keep them on a shorter leash
Maybe? Or at least make posting that stuff against the rules
Only ban when breaking rules, but dismissing trans women & gnc/nb trans peeps should be against the rules
Only if they are putting forth their beliefs in a way to claim that people are not valid.
Still don't know anything about the transmedicalists but ban the terfs
TERFs have no rights and should go. Transmedicalists are... Kinda difficult? I used to consider myself trans and sorta get where they're coming from. I think it's just a generational issue? I don't think they should be banned outright, like TERFs should, but it should be made very clear that MeIRLGBT isn't the place to discuss that
Yeah, but only if you are sure they are terfs/transmed
yes, because they're harmful to trans communities and this subreddit should be safe.
Again, a generally anti-terf attitude, which is expected from previous questions. Once again, this is mostly to inform my moderation style. I am hesitant to ban people because I don’t want to be seen as a powertripping mod out to get everybody. These results, alongside the other terf/transmed ones, are kind of encouraging me to take a slightly heavier hand than I currently am. Again, some specific responses at the end!
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MORE OF? 98/467
This was complete free-entry, so I’ve gone in and grouped a bunch of the responses together.
Ace content: 3
Bi content: 4
Positivity/wholesome shit: 4
Trans content: 5
Commie shit: 2
Garlic bread: 2
That Gay Shit: 13
More activity in general: 5
allowing different titles

more response to reports
peace, love, and understanding
a monthly challenge to make themed memes
clarity as to what this neat little subreddit is about
Other responses were generally just “nothin, we good”, so that makes up the rest of the responses. Further answers at the end!
[i removed these comments for being transphobic lol]: 2
That Het Shit: 3
That Gay Shit
non-meme content: 6
Christmas decorations in October
self-deprecating humour: 2
equating tops/bottoms to personality or body types. this isn't yoai it's real life, and i know this is more of an overall issue with the gay community but it's pretty prevalent on this sub
i hope the rest of your day is the best of your day.
Okay to the people who said they want less of themselves and less gay shit you are in the wholeass wrong place are you okay Reposts seem to be a common issue. Could you lot do me a favour and post in the comments what you think are common reposts? I come on and browse the sub but I really rely on things you report to me, so I don’t always see common reposts. As far as specific content you don’t like, I’m afraid that’s gonna be a self-directed thing for yall. Downvote the non-rulebreaking content you don’t like and hopefully people will get the message! Lol @ the one person who said less surveys. Ur in one. Cant stop wont stop x
ANYTHING ELSE TO ADD?
ily, thank you, etc
This shit sweet as hell thank you for taking the time to add it in at the end ily
“all my answers need the addendum of “I am an idiot, and there are many things I don’t know”
Hi. how u doin
I am a gay
Absolutely. We love that for you.
[bee movie script]
Hi. no. dislike.
Comrades! You have nothing to lose but your chains!
There’s like 5 of you that said this and i love it
imagine being sega and not working towards creating and publishing a new jet set radio future game; absolutely criminal
Imagine being sega. Can’t relate
Perhaps a link in the side bar we can click to escape the subreddit, especially on mobile if possible.
Honestly not a bad idea. I’ll look into this.
Please just add the QA to the name. It’s 2 letters
I’m sorry, i can’t change the subreddit name. I’ll add it to the sidebar tho <3
Sexual attraction is bourgeois
Idk what this means but it is now one of the central tenets of my faith
Thanks for all the “other” options
You’re welcome it made like, 100x more work for me, but i kinda like that we have a smidge of qualitative data alongside all the quantitative shit.
Thanks for letting me participate despite my non LGBT status
Thanks for being chill!
You people need to calm down. I can sense that this energy primarily comes from North America, so I will explain. The level of discrimination and the lack of basic human rights are so extreme, people cannot stand it anymore even if they are not fully aware of these subconscious vibes, so they need to pull extremely in the other direction to make up for this. And hence you have this kind of subculture that emerges as result. The problem is that, you people are as bad as the other end of the problem because you're as extreme, and it translates into over the top aggression and people so insanely touchy they see an attack in absolutely everything, even if they are not being attacked. Become aware of these energies, and chill.
Gurl are you like okay? Do you need a lie down? Some fruit snacks? Everything okay at home?
“I think we need mods who do more than just let people police the sub themselves. We may only need a new mod if the current mods don’t change how they mod. Respond to reports is what I’m saying (I don’t see almost any removed comments ever)”
I’m gonna hold my hands up here, I have generally sucked ass at this. I rely almost completely on you lot reporting things to me, but for the longest time I had a big ol mod queue that was just overwhelming to look at. I’ve made changes to this in the past few weeks, including *expanding automod scripts. Automod now deletes certain slurs automatically, as well as any comment that might be mentioning or encouraging suicide. This is a big help because obviously trolls will rely on their old faithful slurs. I was hesitant to do this because I think we all have a right to slur reclamation, but I think the benefits outweigh that right now. *I got a fancy new mod plugin! It’s called toolbox, and basically just tells me whenever a new post is made so I can approve it or not, and it tells me when I have new reports. It’s made the whole experience less stressful *I spent a day addressing all the shit in the queue. The subreddit used to be like, full anarchy, so there were reports going back 2 years. Again, I take responsibility for that. I’ve been a shitty mod and I am addressing that. I hope these changes help address those concerns.
” i think a little more mod participation would be cool. just seeing admins in comments laughing and joking along with us, and sharing in the memes”
I’ve honestly been thinking about this comment for a while. I try to avoid posting here because, again, I’ve seen a lot of criticism of mods who participate too much in their own subs, especially when they distinguish their posts. I don’t wanna look like a dick, yknow? But I like this comment and I’m gonna try and just hang out with you lot more <3
Mod posts for awareness days (ie bisexuality awareness, TDOR, etc)
I kinda think this idea slaps. Does anybody have a calendar of important LGBT dates? I think we could tie this into the other comment about challenges for themed memes, where appropriate.
Clarity as to what this neat little subreddit is about
Me_irlgbt is a queer shitposting subreddit. It’s generally for memes and queer fuckery. Not selfies. That’s about it.
Okay, so, the reason I’m not going to do this is because I feel that if I post a thread for support, I then have a duty of care to anybody who posts in it. I do not have the capability, time, or knowledge to provide that duty of care, so I feel it would be strongly unethical to do this, regardless of how good the intentions are. I think it’s a well-meaning idea, I just wanted to clarify why I’m personally not comfortable with it.
Not everybody in me_irlgbt is gay. Can we have more inclusivity?
When I use “gay” on this subreddit, especially if I’m referring to the general mass of users, I wholeheartedly mean it in a community way. Like, “we, the gays” as contrapoints once said. You are welcome here. This isn’t the only response along these lines, so I will keep it in mind when making changes. And we’re done! Holy shit that was a long post. This has taken me 6 days to edit. Again, reiterating from the top, I’m not an adept researchedata analyst, so I’m sure many people could’ve done a MUCH better job looking at these results, but I think this will do for now. Thank you so much to everybody who responded. It’s been really interesting for me to have a look at this, and pretty cool to get to fuck around with all this data. Thank you ilysm <3
The population on this subreddit trends young, mostly 18-24
Most people live in the US
Most people are white
We have slightly more male-identified people than female, but not significantly so.
Roughly a quarter of respondents are trans-identified.
Most people use she/her or he/him pronouns. Around 18% use they/them, with the rest “other” or neopronouns.
About 60% of the people here identify as bisexual or pansexual, 17% lesbian, 16% gay, 17% asexual. These responses do overlap with many people using multiple labels for themselves.
mostly high school or college educated, which makes sense with the age demographics
overwhelmingly left-leaning politically
generally positive feelings towards the subreddit/mods
mostly atheist/agnostic religious views
74% of respondents are single/not in a relationship.
88% of respondents do not like TERFs
about half of respondents do not like transmedicalists, but 28% are neutral
Printer Pratfalls, Privacy Predicament, Performance Problems Plague Windows Update
Open the Windows Registry editor via the “Regedit” command.
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft. Open the Microsoft folder.
Right-click on the folder and choose “New Key.” Name the key “EdgeUpdate.”
Left-click on the new “EdgeUpdate” folder you only created, if it isn’t automatically selected. you'll need to scroll to the rock bottom of the registry — on my machine, the “EdgeUpdate” folder was created at the very bottom of the list. Once you click thereon, you’ll see one “default” key and zip else.
5. Right-click under the “Default” option and choose “New,” followed by “DWORD (32-bit) Value”. 6. Name the DWORD “DoNotUpdateToEdgeWithChromium.” 7. Double-click the DWORD you only created. Change the worth within the “Value Data” field from 0 to z. You are doing not got to touch the “Hexadecimal” versus “Binary” field. 8. The last step is to reboot your machine. this may prevent Microsoft from updating Edge automatically. I can’t find specific data on now, but you ought to still be ready to manually install the browser if you would like to. Why Is Microsoft Importing Firefox and Chrome Data? You might want to avoid Microsoft’s new Chromium Edge for one reason: It imports your user data from Firefox and Chrome without permission. Here’s how the method typically works: 1. Run the browser installer.
The browser installer asks if you would like to import your data from another browser.
3. You select “Yes” or “No” and proceed with the installation. Here’s how Microsoft’s new Edge does it: 1. Run the browser installer.
The browser imports a number of your data from other browsers.
The browser asks if you'd wish to import your data.
If you say “Yes,” you’ll never notice the matter because you chose to merge your data pools. If you say “No,” the installer is meant to delete your data. However, Microsoft has noted that if you stop the installer early, some “residual data” may remain. But here’s the rub: once you launch Windows 10 after updating Edge, the sting installer runs automatically, which suggests Microsoft is gobbling down your data, failing to delete it upon exit, and claiming the whole process is somehow beneficial. When asked about this activity, Microsoft responded: We believe browser data belongs to the customer and that they have the proper to make a decision about what they ought to do with it. Like other browsers, Microsoft Edge offers people the chance to import data during setup. This is claptrap, start to end. Microsoft isn't respecting personal data privacy within the slightest by starting the import process before even asking if you would like to, then failing to delete data if you don’t. albeit you aren’t concerned about the privacy aspects of the difficulty, you would possibly not want Firefox or Chrome data in your new Edge installation. I can’t represent people, but I subdivide my browser use by activity. I run Edge with no add-ons whatsoever, so I always have a browser I can use to see a recalcitrant website. I exploit it for streaming because Chrome still won’t stream above 720p on Windows 10. I exploit it for various tasks than I exploit Firefox and Chrome, and that I don’t mix data between them. We’ve inveighed against the Windows 10 update model so often, I’m honestly uninterested in doing it. Five years after Windows 10 launched, I see no evidence that the corporate has improved perceptions of Windows as a stable OS, and an excellent deal of evidence suggesting that it's not. I even have written many more stories about failures in Windows 10 following each of Microsoft’s upgrade pushes than I ever wrote about, say, Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 SP1. Yes, Windows gets updated more often, and yes, Microsoft has added some nice features over five years, particularly when it involves monitoring system performance. But those improvements have come at the value of near-endless troubleshooting and a few serious, high-profile screwups. it's going to not appear as if it, due to how our site displays multiple URLs in sequence, but each of the words linked above points to a special story. It wasn’t hard to seek out the examples, either. Microsoft has published data claiming that Windows 10 generates far fewer problems or user issues than previous versions of the OS. I even have no proof that it isn’t true. From a press perspective, however, the constant drumbeat of Windows 10 failures is downright wearying. whenever Microsoft releases a replacement version, I decide to write another few stories about everything new that’s broken. Since Microsoft won’t follow Apple and Google’s lead and release one update per annum, we get to go to this subject a minimum of twice. Often it’s considerably more, since individual Patch Tuesday updates often break things, too. Microsoft could also be making real progress as far because of the absolute number of individuals who are impacted by problems, version after version. Perception isn’t always reality, and forum discussions are dominated by people that have problems, not people that don’t. But this constant, unending drumbeat of issues can't be doing Windows 10 any favors in how people perceive its reliability, albeit the underlying situation is different.

Tools & Info for SysAdmins - Mega Summary Q4 (Over 80 Items)
Hi sysadminblogs, Each week I thought I'd post these SysAdmin tools, tips, tutorials etc with just one link to get it in your inbox each week (with extras). Let me know any ideas for future version in the comments! This week is mega list of all the items we've featured to in the last 3 months, broken down into categories, for you to explore at your leisure. I hope you enjoy it. Free Tools Free MailFlow Monitor. Rejection / Delay Text Alerts, Group Policies, Alerts By SMTP Code, Trouble Shooting Tools including header analysis. MailFlow Monitor is EveryCloud’s (our) free, cloud-based, round-trip tool that sends you an alert as soon as there is an issue with your email flow. Settings are adjustable to allow you to choose how much of a delay is acceptable and which types of bounce alerts you want to see. Helps you get to the bottom of a problem before users (or your boss) have even noticed it. Postman is a popular, free app to make API development faster and easier. It offers a powerful GUI, saved history of requests, flexible monitoring, automated testing with collection runner, mock servers, and unlimited collections, environments, tests, and sharing. It also provides detailed documentation. Microsoft Sysinternals Suite is all their utilities in one convenient file. Contains the all the individual troubleshooting tools as well as help files, but not non-troubleshooting tools like the BSOD Screen Saver or NotMyFault. A shout out to azers for recommending this one. RichCopy is a simple tool written by a Microsoft engineer named Derk Benisch. It provides a much-appreciated graphical interface for the very popular Robocopy command-line utility. Windows Update MiniTool is an alternative to the standard (and sometimes overbearing) Windows Update. It allows you to control updates by giving you the power to search, install, and block Windows updates in any way you like. Space Monger gives you a graphical image of your whole disk, where large files and folders are easily identified. This handy tool can be run from a USB drive, so you don't even need to install it. Thanks for this one and Windows Update MiniTool go to mikedopp. UNetbootin is a terrific, cross-platform utility for creating bootable live USB drives for Ubuntu and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. Thanks go to Gianks for this one. CopyQ is a clipboard manager that adds some advanced editing and scripting capabilities.

A great resource for anyone responsible for running systems built on UNIX or Linux. Taming Information Technology: Lessons from Studies of System Administrators (Human Technology Interaction Series) was suggested by AngryMountainBiker, who describes it as "essentially an ethnographic study of system administrators. The authors videotaped and otherwise documented SA's over a period of time and were able to break down a number of fascinating incidents and how to improve the art. I'm disappointed this hasn't been recommended reading for all SA's and maybe more importantly, their bosses, who too often don't really know what SA's do."

Thanks to Phx86 who says it "creates a very versatile USB drive. It checks a lot of marks other various tools did not. Formats NTFS, your ISO boot disks doubles as standard NTFS storage. Drag and drop .ISO files to the correct folder, then boot directly to them. Boot menu reads the .ISO files and builds a menu based on what is loaded on the drive. No fiddling around with custom boot menus when you add a new .ISO." CCleaner is the fastest way to eliminate temporary files and Windows Registry problems.

Edit: I'm daft and messed up the date. 06.09.2016 is the correct date. I also may or may not be calling myself daft to cover up that I'm a time traveler. Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with paradox nor is anything said in the stream official. I was compiling these notes initially for a post I made on another thread and decided to make my own thread since there was quite a bit here so this list will likely miss some data. For cknoor's sake, if you have suggestions, questions, bug reports, etc... Post them on paradox plaza (link here: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?forums/stellaris.900/). Devs read these forums and appreciate the input. They obviously read Reddit as well, but from past experience they are quite a bit more likely to see them and reply to them on the forums. Now then, notes:
There is now a pop up to name a colony (planet) once you start colonizing a planet.
Researching multiple special projects at the same time in the situation log is a bug. Not a high priority for bug fixing but will be fixed eventually. Probably not in 1.2. Do note, this is meant in regards to things that pause research to my knowledge.
Ringworld construction will likely come in the future. Wiz wants it but no promises.
Open borders impacts both civilian and military ships
Quite a bit has been moved from the trading screen. Diplomacy looks more like paradox GSG than Civ 4x now.
Slave Revolts are incoming in 1.2. Factions appear to be based on how many enslaved pops you have. More details will be coming in a future dev diary.
On To Do list - making debris and other projects that don't require research points to not pause technology research. Not a high priority.
Possibly new colonization messages based on either government or ethics (based on Wiz's response to the Civ traders pop up when he thought it wasn't Civ traders mod).
Closing borders will piss off other nations and certain AI personalities will likely attack if you box them in.
No new victory conditions in 1.2.
Fix of bug to crisis killing everyone but you and you "winning" the game. Crises count as empires now for that victory condition.
Fallen Empire borders do not have open borders. Potentially will in the future but may try to kill your ships in their territory.
Looking to add more weapon sizes in the future
Allowing deconstruction of space stations and refitting modules on to do list. May make it in 1.2. Wiz is also annoyed by it.
Sectors will no longer build certain spaceport modules in 1.2 (no specifics)
Can research all special projects in a system via right clicking the system in 1.2. Special projects include debris.
Strategic resources being looked at to be more strategic in the future. Not in 1.2.
Base trade system probably in 1.2. Speculation based on Wiz thinking it wasn't a mod at first. Probably if not 1.2 then 1.3. Wiz said clarification in next week's stream.
Happiness is no longer a tiered system (aka no more threshold bonuses at 80 + 90%). Instead base happiness is 50% and every % above or below grants bonuses or penalties respectively. Harder to stack happiness modifiers due to changing of a lot of happiness modifiers. My speculation is that this means a lot of the modifiers have been removed.
Habitability is now -20% per step away on the wheel.
Spiritualist no longer give happiness bonuses, instead -ethics divergence.
Gene modification is fixed in 1.2 in regards to counting as a separate species/race.
If buildings can be upgrades but you don't have enough resources then the upgrade button will remain but be greyed out.
Expansion planner (ledger?) not in 1.3, will try to get it in 1.3.
recently conquered modifier will no longer apply to things not recently conquered (infiltrated primitives, integrated vassals, reconquered planets, etc...). Icon change and clarity to the modifier is planned for the future.
Embassies are gone. Opinion is now gained on trust + gifts (read: Bribes). Each point of a trade deal that is favorable towards a nation will result in +2 opinion.
Tons of government changes. I know someone covered them well elsewhere in that thread so I didn't write them all down, sorry!
Pacifists get a happiness modifier like spiritualists currently do. Fanatical pacifists get 15%.
Now able to set war policies, fanatical pacifists are very limited with what they can declare war on and pacifists have increased costs to war goals.
Xenophile is a much more diplomatic ethos. Xenophobe still hates everyone more.
Can kick people out of alliances via voting. Declining alliance proposals pisses off other alliance members and can get you booted as well.
All 3 crises are able to trigger in 1.2 in the same game. Will not happen simultaneously and will be rare to have multiple crises in a game.
No concrete system for espionage as of the moment. Likely will happen at some point. Suggestions forum if you have a really cool idea for it.
2 map modes confirmed: Diplomatic and Opinion.
Tons of federation changes. Members able to vote on things such as going to war. Federation fleet now has its own fleet limit that is 20% of each member's fleet limit contributed to the federation. No ship maintenance on federation fleet ships but cannot build over the limit.
Wormhole stations may be able to be removed from borders they don't have access to and are at peace. Wiz thinks it's in 1.2 but they have been meaning to fix it for awhile now.
Sweedes are lazy and are going on "vacations" resulting in lack of streams in July and August. Obviously more will be known closer they get.
CKnoor was swapped with a robot. Status is unknown on if the original CKnoor still lives.
Apologies for typos and what not. Did this over my phone. Feel free to post stuff I missed in the comments and I'll edit them in below this paragraph. Edit, per Florac Some of this is from in stream, a lot of it is from out of stream. Some of it is a repeat of above.
End Game crisis will be buffed
Colonizing costs influence. More the further away(30 within border, more for further away)
More events, especially for mid game and colonization.
Probably binary star systems in the future
Stellaris probably won't be on steam summer sale
Private colony ships cost energy instead of minerals
New trade option: Wormhole station access(allows you to build wormhole stations within their borders)
New diplomacy option: Devensive pact.
Migration, guarantee independence and non agression pact are no diplomacy options, not trade options
Non agression pact with AI no longer needs shared borders.
It's unlikely there will be any features to interact with occupied planets
You can't colonize within someones else border.
Fun fact: They forgot to turn off the civilian trader mod....but there are plans to add civilian traders to vanilla. Maybe for Asimov, maybe not.
Amount of how many resources you need to trade as "payment" now scales to income.
New policy: War Philosophy. Either unrestricted, liberation wars only or only defensive wars(so can't declare)
Peaceful Bureaucracy can get 5/10(starting out and upgraded) additional core systems.
Tons of other etho changes. Too lazy to write them all.
Adding more crises is discussed, but nothing planned atm.
Cashbob scammer is now Simplebitx scam ples be careful!
Hello, I'm from Amsterdam I original posted this review in Dutch but now I am trying to using translator to English because moderator forum asked me to post in Engllish. A big scam takes place under the name "www.simplebitx.com". This is a 1 year old crypto-broker with many red flags on it, one of the biggest is that it is run by former convicted lending company Cashbob and people who were exposed years ago by the Dutch AMF authority. They also had a binary options business that I was a member of in 2014 and my contact was called "Mike B". This company was called Optie and had to be closed because it was involved in freezing customer account and clearing customer balance! The usual binary option tactics, last year. As a partner I was told that I was paid on volumes, but it was about losses from traders that I sent them! I stopped when I discovered this and the managers of Option NL held all my payments and even threatened me. To my great fear after I had spoken and read with the Dutch regulators, I had to find out that it is in the culture of Optie to threaten their affiliates and customers, in fact their main person Mike Batenburg was caught and fined by the AMF for sending loan sharks to peoples homes to hurt them and to blackmail! I am so disgusted to be associated with this, so I thought I would let people know that they are back now after Optie NL and 365 Trading was closed, to try to extort people into cryptocurrency and bitcoin now. Proof:https://www.amweb.nl/financiele-planning/nieuws/2013/12/afm-beboet-flitskredietaanbieder-cashbob-10110603 https://kassa.bnnvara.nl/pagina/discussie-cashbob-nl-flitsleningen If you go to their new scam website www.simplebitx.com, you can see that not everything is alright. They have an office of the Marshall Islands organization that is a virtual office but claims to be based in Bulgaria, but if you check the Bulgarian business register (http://www.info-clipper.com/en/company/search/bulgaria.bg.html), the company SBX Services Bulgaria EOOD does not exist! It is a falsehood name! No surprise, but they do not only take customers from my country Nederland (I registered easily and could trade as long as my deposit was less than 2000 euros, so their KYC is not real) but my biggest concern was that they claim to be established in the EU, but they are not AND they take American traders!!!) Proof:https://i.gyazo.com/9402ffd3abdcf9a8a0c25c073ed13dad.png and they claim they offer CFDs, but it is simple binary options !!! Proof:https://i.gyazo.com/a1a369ca91aec2420e5f305f3edb5462.png If you contacting them to request information about the team or anything else, there is no responses. I wrote them from https://www.simplebitx.com/contact/ and you see that there is no company registration number that proves that they are in the EU or something. I signed up for a demo account and the first screen I saw asked me to deposit! Proof:https://i.gyazo.com/6c07ecf559809b4a53deea00c608ca5e.png I am currently a trading fan and run my own FB community and coming to cryptocurrency after the binary options business in Europa was killed by the ESM. So far I have started trading on Bitmex and am happy that nobody in my group has been scammed. I am not yet a branch of Bitmex and I want to spread my risk for my community. I sincerely hope that the information above has helped. Please communicate I am here to help. Daan

The Total Supply is 100 million coins with no further issuance in any case. The Max Supply is currently 70 million coins, with the remaining 30 million left to be mined over the course of many years. Currently, the Circulating Supply is around 25 million. Q：I hear Walton is moving to its own blockchain? Main net has just been launched. Stay tuned for details about the token swap and transition to the new chain! Q：How do I convert my ERC20 WTC tokens to the real thing? You can either leave your coins on the exchange, and they will take care of the switch for you, or you can leave them in your MEW wallet, and the team will provide details on how the tokens will be swapped over. Just sit tight! Details are coming. Q: How do I move my WTC to MEW (or the new Walton Wallet)? For MEW: I. Send your WTC to your wallet address. II. Add a custom token using the information below: Address: 0xb7cb1c96db6b22b0d3d9536e0108d062bd488f74 Name: WTC Decimals: 18 For Walton Wallet: Do not send ANY coins to this wallet yet. Wait for instructions from the team. Once everything is safe, you will be able to just create a wallet on the Walton Wallet and send your coins to the public address generated. Q：What if I want to keep them on my Ledger Nano? You can do that, and the team will still snapshot your wallet and copy it along with your coins; however, the the Ledger may not support WTC currently. Don't fret. Your coins are 100% safe. What that means is, if there is no Ledger support, the only way to transfer your coins out of the wallet will be to expose your Ledger's private key. I don't recommend doing this, as it will make the ledger no more secure than a paper wallet (still very secure, but a waste of money now). So basically, your coins are safe. You can still mine to the address. You just won't be able to move them until Ledger support comes. But if you really need access to the coins, you can break out the Ledger's private key on MEW and log into your wallet. Ledger support will come, we just don't know exactly when. Walton is also making their own Walton hardware wallets.I'll update this with more information as it comes. Q：My GMN is on MEW. Will I ever be able to secure GMN in a hardware wallet? As you know, moving your GMN will void your Guardian status because it is attached to the wallet containing at least 5000 WTC; however, the team has stated that they are working on a solution for this and have reassured us that our coins will be safe. We will have to wait for more information regarding whether the transferring of a GMN to a new address will be possible in the future. Q：What is the utility of WTC? What gives the coin value? In the WaltonChain Ecosystem WTC will have multiple functions: • Issuing sub chains • Dividend interest • Credit and mortgage system • Distributed asset exchange • Distributed voting and governance system. More in depth coverage of each point here Q: Is Waltonchain a platform? Yes. Waltonchain is a smart contract platform that will have ICOs and dApps. Q: But I thought Walton just tracked clothing in the supply chain. What else can it do? Walton is capable of implementation in smart cities, smart waste management systems, and things of that nature. That's certainly beyond supply chain. Walton isn't so much a "supply chain" coin as it is a Big Data coin. The RFIDs are used to gather data, which is very useful in supply chain management. But it can also be used to combine with smart devices and make an Internet of things network. Q: Why does this need a blockchain? "It is difficult for the Internet of things under the current central structure to accomplish real autonomous cooperation and effective transactions, because the relevant parties of such cooperation and transactions often belong to different stakeholders with complex and uncertain trust relationships. Therefore, the collaboration and transactions of the current Internet of Things devices can only be carried out under the same trust domain. That is to say, the devices to collaborate and trade must be provided or verified by the same Internet of Things service provider, which significantly reduces the true commercial value of the Internet of Things applications." (Page 2 of the Whitepaper) To expand, counterfeiting is an obvious answer to this question. There needs to be a way to truly authenticate an item. Blockchain is that answer. Walton's blockchain also removes data silos. Companies won't have to manage any database anymore. Everything is handled by Walton. Walton uses child chains which are separate from the parent chain. Companies can keep proprietary information secret and private on their child chain, and only broadcast necessary information to the parent chain for public viewing. Blockchains make the sharing of info between companies easy and fast, too. And then obviously, blockchains have perfect transparency and are immutable. Smart contracts are also extremely useful. In the supply chain industry, after perfectly counting and storing inventory, things can be auto-ordered and paid for simultaneously with wtc, just as an example. Your mind can come up with a whole host of other ideas related to automation. Furthermore, decentralized, transparent, and immutable data for things like smart waste management systems, which Walton has designed, and air-pollution monitoring systems in smart cities would benefit greatly from the blockchain, for reasons explained in the first point from the whitepaper. You could also imagine on the customer end that wanting to know where all their goods come from is important. This is in line with counterfeiting, but also with things more benign. Imagine wanting to return an item to a store, but can't remember which grocery store it was from. Lots of simple improvements like that are all use cases for blockchain. Q: What are the 6 child chains rumored to launch around Main Net? One is a Smart City contracted by a local Korean govt. monitoring air particles (no further specifics). Another is based in the agriculture industry (no further specifics), and another is Freyrchain, a culture and arts chain. The other three have not been revealed yet. Q: I heard Waltonchain has patented technology. What are the patents? The Walton team has filed filed for 13 patents, 7 of which have been approved so far. The patents cover many inventions in chip design, but the main one of interest is the Transaction ID-reading RFID chip with memory storage. This allows the blockchain to be implemented in the Foundational layer through the RFIDs themselves. The chips can generate their own random ID hash within a secure Key Generation Center within the chip, and the hash along with the data are uploaded simultaneously to the blockchain via their RFID reader. This makes WaltonChain fully decentralized and secure. Q：What are the advantages of the RFID IC tag chip designed in this project? Existing RFID chip industry cannot meet the development of Internet of Things applications, especially applications for the Value Internet of Things: • There are few options available while the prices are high • The transmission power and stability need to be improved • The reception sensitivity is low • The anti-interference ability is poor and the transmission power is low • The existing RFID ICs have many problems such as high power consumption, poor matching with antennae, and difficult system integration, etc. The project’s IC design has the following significant advantages: • High security: The chip integrates asymmetric random password pair generation logic, uses a core asymmetric encryption algorithm with independent intellectual property rights, and an optimized design without increasing the cost and power consumption of the chip, enabling higher communication security • Tamper-resistant: A dedicated storage space is integrated into the tag chip for the storage of hash value of tag status and key information • Optimized anti-collision design: The chip uses a binary tree anti-collision algorithm with independent intellectual property rights and a time division multiple access design, significantly improving the tag recognition success rate and the number of identifiable labels at the same time • High sensitivity: The chip uses an optimized noise suppression technology to improve the noise figure at the receiving end and the overall receiver sensitivity, which plays an important role in increasing the recognition success rate • Good compatibility: The chip can achieve high-frequency and ultra-high frequency functions at the same time, so the end customer can read the information through their smart phone and inquire about reliable product information • Long lasting: The chip adopts a low voltage and low power-consumption design, allowing the chip to last more than 20 years Q：How much do the chips cost? Waltonchain in a nutshell with COO Monitor Chan: "We develop and produce hardware such as chips ourselves. This really differentiates us from other companies at the moment. Basically, Silitec, our technical support company, was founded in 2015 and is specialized in manufacturing chips. They already have a R&D team of around 20+ people, so in that way we are not 'increasing' cost. Next important detail is that Waltonchain’s blockchain technology is written into our chips. This means that unlike traditional RFID chips that have their own specific ID and cost around $0.15 to $0.20, the chips we develop will be below 5 cents. With the volume of sales increasing, the overall cost will spread over many units, and the system's cost and ID’s cost will go down consequently, or simply put, economics of scale will do the work." Q：I need help with mining. What resources are out there? WaltonchainMining is for this purpose. Community members here have done testing with many different configurations and have provided ample information for anything you need with setting up your cpu/gpu rig. Q：How many GMNs are left? The Waltonchain Explorer now tracks these addresses. Q：Who are the Knights? • u/fent11 • u/NetworkTraveler • u/yayowam • u/Crypto_RALLY • u/TheSideQuest • Crypto Buff (telegram)
HIGH REWARD COIN Investment instrument based on new generation blockchain INTRODUCTION Our crew has created a neural network capable of learning based on the knowledge and experience of professional traders. OBJECTIVE High Reward Coin’s objective is to offer a wide circle of people an opportunity to gain high rewards by making use of our rich experience and advanced tools that include machine learning and blockchain technologies. SOLUTION Our bots are continuously improved and avoid numerous tiny errors typical for human actor during the trading on global exchanges. The humans are subject to emotions, moods and other external factors. Our companies’ trading bots are exempt from any such risks and therefore we can guarantee maximum gains. We invest significant resources into the development of neural network in order that our bots would be able to expand the spectrum of traded instruments and work with wider scope of exchanges and financial products. WHAT IS HIGH REWARD COIN ABOUT US HighRewardCoin is a monetary system built on the Ethereum platform combining all the best properties of this platform. Simplified transfers Convenient remittance of assets Fast immediate P2P transactions The total amount of tokens is restricted HighRewardCoin is absolutely free from governmental or banking management The blockchain ledger insures your funds from hackers, scammers, and brute force. SPECIFICATION Coin Name: High Reward Coin Symbol: HRC Platform: Ethereum Total Supply: 12.000.000 HRC Total Sale For ICO: 9.240.000 HRC Total Refferal and Bounty: 10% of seling HRC Token Sale Price: 0.8$-1,75$ = 1 HRC Price After ICO: 15$ Token Sale will be open from 20.01.2018-20.02.2018 Soft cap: 1.000.000$ Hard cap: 12.730.000$ (The amount can be lowered) 5a68d279e079b_percents-2(1).png.6d397cb3dcf83a97cbf557fc74ded185.png WALLET HighRewardCoin trading token system will include a wallet where the users can keep, track and handle their personal HRC funds. Its interface will provide you with convenient and automated tools for browsing your token purchases and investments backlog as well as current assets. (See also ICO information on our site). The wallet is designed to be used in the token sale and an ensuing active HRC space. It is based on Ethereum’s strategic ERC20 protocol and is assumed to be used for storing HRC tokens exclusively. BEST WALLET FOR HRC MyEtherWallet (no download needed) MetaMask (Firefox and Chrome browser addon) Mist (Desktop) Parity (Desktop) imToken (iPhone) imToken (Android) Our HRC wallet is currently under development and will be presented shortly so that you will able to store your tokens in the wallet based on our proprietary platform. TYPE TOKEN TYPE TOKEN ($ HRC) HighRewardCoin has developed the tokens that comply with ERC20 standard rooted in Ethereum ledger and allowing efficient implementation of HRC tokens. ERC20 is a reference protocol that ensures the compatibility of coins, which contributes to the viability of HRC cryptospace. This means all ERC20 based coins are a variety of Ethereum tokens adhering to strictly defined standards. The complete compliance with ERC20 requires for the developer to integrate certain series of commands into their smart contract enabling them, in case of proper implementation, to have an access to the following functionality :
Generate the total reserves of coins
Calculate the balance of the wallet
Remit the tokens
Confirm the transfer of coins
ERC20 ensures smooth intercommunication with outside smart contracts and dAPPs in Ethereum ecosystem. The coins that feature only part of standard functionality are viewed as no fully compliant with ERC20. PURPOSE OF TOKENS HighRewardCoin (HRC) is a digital token designed for purchasing investment products on HighRewardCoin platform. The platform will accept HRC tokens exclusively, which, after ICO, will only be available for buying at coin exchanges. After the launch of lending system, the platform will have an internal exchange for users’ convenience. Why HRC will grow. We have one of the most appealing lending programs, and many people will want to participate in it, driving the HRC price higher. Our experts predict a 10x-14x rise during the first 3-4 months after the appearance of HRC on exchanges. The company will also direct part of its income to repurchase HRC off the exchanges, thus reducing their amount in circulation and driving the price upwards. MARKETS After the end of ICO our token will appear on the following exchanges yobit.png.42dcf4c924033e900b12670ca0b50e1d.png etherdelta.png.d69f2c9ed2167c0f746ae13da2194e48.png coinexchange.png.3f04b950b647bdca01ae34d7500bafb0.png gate.png.29396bc75bae0ef92bd99d86357fc49b.png bluetrade.png.ec51cec1d27100230d3cfb922f3cef33.png tradesatoshi.png.16a78a2dd3bdd16f039d84b58f459c1e.png STANDARD LENDING SYSTEM HighRewardCoin has developed a progressive and innovative credit system highly superior to those of the competitors, since our objective is to integrate several marketplaces of digital finances. We have refrained from daily payouts due to recognizing the increased risks of lowered interests for investors’ community. Instead, we have projected the plan that presupposes the payments in specific periods with increased interests depending on the deposit amount and chosen duration. Such an approach secures the proficiency of investing in ICO sales, mid- and long-term trading or our operations with binary options. HighRewardCoin platform ensures the proper workings of our ecosystem, demonstrating transparency and safety of our transactions, because our primary task is to protect the finances of our customers and affiliates shaping our growing social system. Screenshot_269.png.ed31b9445219ef07b53edabaf18ea39c.png FAST LENDING PROFITS PROGRAM This system is designed for those customers who prefer to get their returns as fast as possible. For them our team has created a special product, short-term, but, respectively, less profitable. But it will also find its customers since the investors’ capital is protected as reliably as in the standard lending program. This plan is setup for those investors who desire to profit in the fastest available way. For these folks our experts have developed a unique option with short term of running, though, of course, with lower yields. Nevertheless, this option will definitely appeal to some of our clientele as your investments here are safeguarded with the same trustworthy mechanisms as in the normal lending version. Screenshot_270.png.4df881f7c35cbd2ba1b4d3483a25ceb8.png PLATFORMS The HighRewardCoin platform will become accessible to our subscribers upon the scheduled start of ICO sale. The platform will provide our users with original and customizable account page with the tools for participating in ICO, utilizing digital wallet, joining affiliate and lending programs. Keep track of the ICO schedule and sign up to draw maximum advantage off our platform and testify to the efficiency and usability of provided tools, settings and options. At the moment we have a platform ready for PC and mobile device web browsers and are planning the launch of mobile apps for most popular systems that will be available in Apple Store and Google Play. However, before we announce the launch of the applications, beware of fraudulent ones that may appear in these stores. INITIAL OFFER OF CURRENCY (ICO) Our intelligent contract enables us to issue only 9,240,000 token for ICO sale, and 10% of the sold tokens amount is reserved for referral payments and bounty rewards. Before the launch of ICO the link to intelligent contract will be available on our website, and each investor can verify it and assure themselves that all their interests are duly protected. PRICING STRUCTURE The HighRewardCoin homepage will feature the level or degree based system of sales. This way the earliest investors will get the most profitable and attractive price, and then the price will be increasing. Screenshot_271.png.08805e367f105a303384f912444c7f3a.png After the sale of tokens ends in one round, the next one will start automatically. REFERRAL SYSTEM Our crew decided to incorporate an extended referral system. We did it to avoid paying our money to large global corporations who profit off advertisements. Instead, we will distribute this money within our community by means of referral system. The system would encompass both ICO and lending programs. Screenshot_272.png.9d6f7aaada356015bb49c7b4df3ce630.png Screenshot_273.png.c25518fcdfd26deb6b24d0c87755c18a.png DISTRIBUTION OF TOKENS The amount of token you bought will be automatically transmitted to your wallet on HighRewardCoin platform, and the same is true for the coins allocated to members of affiliate program as soon as the referrals are approved. The coins are stored in the wallet until the finalization of ICO, and afterwards you may choose to remit them to one of the exchanges listed on our site where they may be traded.
