I just want to put my case in like I just made it on slack

Bas Wisselink [15:18] 
I really advise staking for reasons of standardisation with other PoS and the connotations

[15:18] 
Even if JL doesn't think it's accurate. :stuck_out_tongue:

@libertynow: we all got 0.1% richer

nxtswe [15:19] 
it does not have to be 100% technically correct though.

Jonathan [15:19] 
Oh right yeah .1% lol

Bas Wisselink [15:19] 
@nxtswe: exactly

nxtswe [15:19] 
as long as it is not a lie ... which it might be?

[15:19] 
after all, I don't really put anything at 'stake' when I forge .. erhmm.. stake.

Bas Wisselink [15:20] 
I read it as "using your stake" instead of "putting at stake"

nxtswe [15:20] 
I just 'use' them, noone will ever be able to take them from me if I stake.

[15:20] 
ahh

Bas Wisselink [15:20] 
zing

[15:20] 
snap

[15:20] 
:slightly_smiling_face:

nxtswe [15:20] 
'how are you using your stake' ?

Bas Wisselink [15:20] 
In a case were it's not ever perfect, I prefer the neutral and most used term

[15:21] 
Instead of a term with possible negatives and only used in a small community


nxtswe [15:21] 
I'd like my stake medium rare please

Bas Wisselink [15:21] 
I cannot put my case clearer than above


Cryptkeeper [15:21] 
Coders usually sucks at marketing!

[15:21] 
Staking FTW!

Forging and staking won big time. I am going to setup a blockchain vote to decide who will be the winner!

Rest had 13/14 votes

We need a new name, because forging can have a negative meaning.

So, in the end, just one option to vote. Funny poll.

The problem that I see is that "staking" has not spanish term.

Don't worry @Jose, i don't appreciate/feel in this thread/poll nothing official but it's funny :)

To tell you the truth, I'd rather have more options to choose in this final round.
Now, it all boils down to choose between keeping the same name, which people smarter than I said it has negative connotations, and a new name that I don't like, at all.

I understand, but the difference was too big in the results to let it be included in the final poll.

The options seemed to get pruned very quickly. It seemed like there were a couple of days when I didn't visit the forum, and the options went from 8 down to 2.

Ummmm, how do you know if you have a quorum making the voting valid?  In other words, just because somebody creates a poll, it doesn't necessarily amount to anything.  Is there some protocol that I don't know of that states we need at least 100,000,000 in nxt (for example) to make the poll binding?

1. There was a difference of 12 votes between 2nd highest Forging and Generating / Minting. Rest was under.

2. Time is not on our side. Promotion starts in July.

3. Quorum is very hard to get. There aren't alot of active users, so how would you be able to check what you need and get what you need.

4. Sorry for inconvinience.

If multiple people were what wolffang is doing, I guess you could compare the number of votes and such to determine which is more valid.
But I don't see anyone else than wolffang taking an initiative and pushing these questions ahead.

I thought we could leave the bad distribution issues behind us! But this account shows that it is impossible to change anything in Nxt against the will of the original stakeholders:

It's only useless if you allow them to make decisions they were never supposed to make.
Stakers secure the network, and that's *it*. That's the power they wield and all that they are given by the protocol.
I don't see bitcoin miners being asked about names of things and actually having a say by PoW for more that being able to secure things.
