New Registered names dissappearing

Post by jrkenn » Tue Oct 16, 2018 12:12 am

Registered two domains today. After encrypting wallet and restarting it seems some of my domains are missing. I have registered all domains in the last 24 hours so they are not expired. This happened last night as well. The names disappeared and then came back later. The names are in the log and the transaction is there to show but names not in the list of managed names. Does anyone know why this is happening? Using namecoin-0.13.99-win64-setup-unsigned.exe. Should I be using an older version? I understand this is a beta version and it looks like maybe its having problems and maybe not ready for release. Have I lost these names or will they re appear. New to namecoin so sorry for any confusion with the question.

I suggest that you open an issue on https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core to debug this. First of all, can you disclose which names you registered and what the txid's are? If you are not comfortable with sharing this information publicly, you can also send to me or someone else you trust privately.

I went through the process again and now they are registered. I did have to pay again but I'm not gonna worry about it. It was only on two of my domains. I dont know why those two didnt go through the first time. I think encrypting the wallet may have had something to do with it but not sure but I have them now so I will see if this happens with any others.

Ok, I'm glad it worked out fine for you. My guess is that you did the name_new but the name_firstupdate somehow failed; perhaps that is related somehow to encrypting your wallet. Anyway, in case this happens again and/or you have more information to debug the problem, please open a Github issue so we may be able to fix it for others as well.
