Meta ArdorForum / Welcome to the Ardor Forum!
« on: September 04, 2018, 07:27:29 pm »
We're excited to welcome you to the Ardor Forum, a new forum index for reference and discussion about everything to do with Ardor, the pioneer platform for the blockchain-as-a-service model developed by Jelurida C.S.. This forum is developed and maintained by the Ardor community through the Ardor / Nxt Group.

This new forum has its origin and spirit in the Nxt Forum, the official forum community for the Nxt blockchain technology since 2014. In order to preserve for new community members the enormous amount of historical information shared over the years in the Nxt Forum, while providing a fresh new environment for the new Ardor platform, both forums share resources including the user database. This means that:

- All users who have an account in the classic Nxt Forum can access the Ardor Forum with the same user credentials. Conversely, all new community members who register in the Ardor Forum will have access to the Nxt Forum as well. In order to facilitate switching between forums, a permanent link can be found in the top right of the board index in both forums.
- User resources and history like personal messages, profile, post count and others are shared between both forums. This means for example that you can access the same message history from both the Ardor Forum and the classic Nxt Forum.

Although in the last year the activity in the community has moved significantly to instant messaging channels like Slack or Telegram, the format and persistence of a forum can still be ideal for reference, releases, announcements, long discussions or simply for users who are more comfortable in a forum environment. We want to encourage old and new community members to participate in the Ardor Forum and bring on ideas, new discussions and projects. As new sections or features are needed and activity develops, the forum staff will be happy to improve the site for the community.

This Ardor Forum has been developed by a small (minimal) team and still may show bugs or glitches in some features. We will appreciate your bug reports and suggestions, either in this topic or in a new topic within this Meta Forum if you prefer. We will also welcome people with community management skills or website development skills who want to help and contribute.

We hope that the Ardor Forum will become a useful tool for the Ardor community and team. And once again, welcome!

Kind regards,

The ArdorForum / NxtForum Staff

Meta ArdorForum / Ardorforum Rules & Registration Agreement
« on: September 04, 2018, 06:45:30 pm »

In order to register in the Ardor Forum, you have to agree to a few basic rules. This forum is a platform for Ardor Community members to discuss ideas and develop projects, and a quality meeting point for everyone using Ardor. The following rules are shared with the Nxt Forum, and are implicit as a Registration Agreement to users who have joined either forum.


1.- No personal attacks. Insults and threats will not be tolerated.
2.- No racism, discrimination, sexism, obscenity or apology of aggression.
3.- Respect the privacy of other members. This means not disclosing private communications or personal details of others without their prior and explicit permission.


4.- No spamming in posts or private messages.
5.- No complete derailing of threads. Please keep forum threads on topic. There's a place for every type of discussion.
6.- Avoid irrelevant and annoying content in posts like huge pictures, abuse of quotes and repeated pointless or senseless posts. 


7.- No public distribution of copyrighted contents without permission of the copyright holder.
8.- No discussion of illegal activities, including the sale of illegal goods or copyrighted digital goods without permission of the copyright holder.
9.- You remain solely responsible for the content of your posts. Your views are not necessarily endorsed by the community or the forum staff.

Violation of these rules will get you warned, and serious or repeated violations will result in a temporary or permanent ban at the discretion of the moderating team. Please note that your IP address is recorded, and can be used by the forum staff in case of major violations of these community rules. Moderators reserve the right to remove infringing contents and modify these rules with or without previous notice. (This post will be edited accordingly if/when rules are modified)

I want to know why do closed NxtForum´╝č

I think you asked the same question in Slack and Elizabeth replied. We're not closing NxtForum, where do you see that?

The forum will be placed on maintenance for a little, the database will be migrated to a new server, and it will reopen as two forums instead of one. NxtForum and ArdorForum.

The next Sunday, September 2nd, this forum will be closed for maintenance and migration tasks to a new host and content structure. NxtForum, along with the new ArdorForum site, are expected to go online again during the evening of September 3rd.

As many have pointed out during the last months, and principally due to the adoption of Slack and other new channels, the activity in NxtForum has decreased a lot. However, a forum structure still can offer useful tools for the community, most specially as the Ardor platform consolidates and includes more projects and developments. NxtForum, and also ArdorForum, will continue to provide persistent information, full historical reference, boards for official software releases and organized sections for projects, child chains and discussions that benefit from features that slack cannot offer.

Some important things about this new forum stage:

- ArdorForum and NxtForum will share the same user base. This means that everyone who owns an account in NxtForum will have automatically access to ArdorForum using the same username and password. Conversely, anyone who registers a new account in ArdorForum will also have access to NxtForum.
- User information like private messages, post count, profile details and category will be shared in both forums.
- ArdorForum and NxtForum will have different main indexes and categories. Some forum sections, for instance the offtopic area, will be shared.
- All the topics specific to the Ardor platform currently in NxtForum will be moved to their own category in ArdorForum.

After the migration next week there will still be of course work to do finishing layout and board organization in the new Ardor forum. As usual we'll be open for new ideas, sections or features in this new tool for Ardor discussions and information. We hope to see you there.

Kind regards,

The Ardor & Nxt community Group

May I ask what is the point for this post? Are you encouraging people to report the developers and/or the community?

Official Nxt Releases / Re: NRS v1.11.13

Reducing the security level of a passphrase to the number of characters is misleading. String length is one important factor, but there's others: the set of characters you're using (lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers and/or symbols), the uniqueness of the string (whether it can be found elsewhere online or offline), the non-relation to any of your personal information, and the use of a random, or at least pseudo-random, creation algorithm. If you want to suggest an objective measuring rod for password strength, it would be better to use the bits of entropy in the string. That, together with safe storage of the string and its uniqueness, is what makes a passphrase secure.

the passphrases generated by the wallet are vulnerable because they use a dictionary which makes them predictable

This is not true. Many cryptocurrency platforms and tools use a random set of 12+ words randomly chosen from a large enough dictionary set as seed to derive private keys from. There's been several discussions about this, and presuming your personal security is solid, the passphrases generated by the official wallet are secure against brute force attacks. See for instance https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/is-12-words-enough

Thank you for the info, and feel free to promote the event in this forum.

Nxt Blockchain Creation Kit / Re: Compile Error java

Installing with PPAs is more meant for Ubuntu linux, and you seem to be running Kali.

Try these steps and let us know if it works.

Theoretically, yes. You create a custom UI for posting messages, formatting them with required parameters (board, topic, etc) and broadcast signing with your blockchain account/user ID. Then you either display the contents in a separate UI section or in a website, querying the blockchain for messages.

However, there's the important issue of spamming and fees. Posting would necessarily come with a transaction cost. And there's also other potential challenges, like re-organization of contents. Years ago this use case was considered (see for instance here and here) but as far as I know development did not continue. Outside of this community, there were also projects like ChainBB but they did not fare too well.

You can read an introduction to the Nxt Blockchain Creation Kit and find links to the latest code version here:

There is a new board for discussions related to the Nxt Blockchain Creation Kit. Moving your request there, in case you still need assistance.


thanks for the bump and for the suggestion. I've created a new Nxt Blockchain Creation Kit board in the Nxt Discussion area, and I'll be moving related topics there, including this one.

can you please provide more details about the issues you are having? Does the blockchain start downloading, and then stop for some reason, or there's no blockchain download at all?

Introduce Yourself / Re: Hello

Hello, and welcome to the forums.

Currently most of the activity happens in the slack channel (invites can be requested here) but of course the forum stays open for announcements and persistent discussions.

If there's any topics in general you're interested, let us know.

Is this tool still available? The link here does not work.

It does work - https://mynxt.info/forging_calculator.php

Try to refresh and update either parameter (amount of NXT and deadline) to see the estimate.
