Re: Permission to post messages: an IQ-test?

I agree with questionmark. These stupid captcha detectors are the biggest reason I drop down and bail on using a certain website/forum. I'm open to suggestions on how to improve the situation, but calling things stupid and suggesting that you might leave the forum are not constructive suggestions. ...

Re: Why names are not encrypted?

So there are a few reasons why this isn't supported right now. 1. Trying to encrypt data with a low-entropy key (such as a Namecoin identifier) and then add it to an immutable ledger is generally a *really bad* idea. It's basically the equivalent of using a low-entropy password on a website, and the...

Re: Permission to post messages: an IQ-test?

It's intended to be an antispam mechanism (before we added that step, we were getting spambombed on a daily basis, and most spambots don't ever attempt to add themselves to user groups). Unfortunately, it sounds like it's causing confusion for more than just spambots. Between the date of a forum upg...

Re: WDYT about soft fork to enable some Bitcoin features

One of the reasons for AAA being delayed is that it's blocked by getting the name tab GUI merged to master branch (since activating AAA will break nc0.13.99-name-tab-beta1 clients). This is not as big a deal for a softfork, since we only need an economically significant subset of users to upgrade (a...

Re: Namecoin logo licensing

So I just realized that if the logo is licensed under a SA license, then the logo can't be used in MIT-licensed software such as Namecoin Core or Electrum-NMC. (Technically we would still be allowed to distribute either of them as the copyright holders, but anyone besides us wouldn't be allowed to d...

(Testers Wanted!) Beta Binaries of Firefox Positive TLS Support

I've posted unofficial binaries of the Namecoin positive TLS override functionality that I previously wrote about at https://www.namecoin.org/2018/02/20/ncdumpzone-firefox.html . Here are the download links: GNU+Linux 64-bit: https://share.riseup.net/#j50muMClEiCG9N20_G_KOg GNU+Linux 32-bit: https:/...

Re: Namecoin logo licensing

Looks like there's reasonably widespread agreement. I'll give it another week, and if no one has NACKed by that point, I'd say the decision is official.

Re: Bountysource claim: TLS validation of server cert for .bit

Bounty awarded. However, since NMDF covered this work, I donated the Bountysource bounty back to the Namecoin Bountysource account.

Re: Bit domains statistics

It looks like the https://bitname.ru/ server isn't including the Let's Encrypt intermediate CA in the cert chain that it provides to the browser. (At least, I think that's what's happening.) This causes the following error to show up in Tor Browser: bitname.ru uses an invalid security certificate. T...
