On Wednesday June 29th, five of the eight Dogeparty Foundation directors joined their monthly scheduled call to present updates on several initiatives and to discuss new business. The directors began the meeting by providing updates on a number of ongoing projects:
- DIP3 (token divisibility change) is scheduled to be updated to the desktop wallet in July or August
- VinDAX volume-generating service is active and functioning as expected
- DIP4 (dynamic transaction fee) is still being researched but faces some obstacles
- A “Featured Community Members & Artists” page is being developed for dogeparty.net
- The Dogeparty Discord continued to be enhanced with new channels and fresh content
Requests that were sent to coinmarketcap.com and coingecko.com to gain a listing of XDP have been turned down until conflicts regarding proof of project ownership have been resolved. The existence and active hosting of dogeparty.io (the former domain which originally hosted the platform at its launch in 2014) by an unknown registrant has caused the decision-makers at these two sites to refuse to list XDP until it can be proven that the Foundation and its properties are the sole functioning and ownership components of the platform (despite that this can be researched and proven with little effort). The Foundation is hopeful that the registrant of dogeparty.io will be willing to come forward and establish a dialogue with the community to help resolve the conflict soon. At this time the individual has been neither identified nor contacted.
Several open and known issues are being addressed on the list of miscellaneous bug-fixes including:
- Displaying all open and closed dispensers (instead of strictly open ones)
- Asterix being added by the wallet to URLs in the description
- Insufficient funds error
- Inconsistent description length errors
These and other issues also exist in duplicate on the Counterparty interfaces which are also being fixed. The Counterparty fixes are planned to be ported over to Dogeparty thereby addressing the issues in both platforms simultaneously. Community members who wish to document additional issues experienced using the platform are encouraged to visit the Dogeparty issues page on github.com to post information about a needed fix which is not already known or being reviewed.
The Foundation agreed to table the search and hiring of a Community Outreach Manager for the time being due to an interest in protecting the Foundation Fund during the market downturn and avoid spending those funds until market conditions improved. It was agreed that the weekly Twitter Spaces was gainful, however, and that support for that effort would continue.
Lastly, it was agreed that in order to improve excitement and engagement within the community in the main Dogeparty Telegram room, all restrictions on giveaways would be lifted there. All references to those restrictions in the pinned messages have been removed and users are free to post giveaways in the main Dogeparty room going forward, and until further notice. This policy will be subject to revision again in the future if it is determined that the volume of giveaways is disruptive to the general dialogue in the room.
