    I removed https:// and appear to have had success. No blocks found yet though. Perhaps it's the 2PH/s thing :(

    seems good to me, you need to use quotes if there are spaces in the password.

    Look at the nethash your have very slight chance to get a block with 2PH/s of mining power to compete with. Our blocks are orphaning. And to make it worse all of that hash is on suprnove pool as one single miner.

    Crypto needs to be accepted by your average person to go main stream. I think that most devs and computer junkies forget that most people need simple directions to get a wallet, open files and so on . All I want to do is d/l a wallet, get my coin drop and start using decred. As a person with average computer knowledge, I am lost and the software instructions are not user friendly. I have a feeling that @Spayse understands what I am getting at. In conclusion, I feel that this roll out has been good for advanced users but not your average lay person. I have coins that I can't get, a wallet that I can't figure out how to open Sigh. This is not working for the main stream!

    How can I see my addresses in wallet? Any command? I can see my coins from airdrop as immature in transactions so I think I am OK with that. But how can I see if the new address I got for mining is really active?

    Perfect example.. How is this user friendly? Your average person will not get involved with this.. I understand peoples frustration as I am frustrated myself.

    Any idea why the miner console might go blank screen after attempted launch?

    Edit: everyone should calm down. At 2PH/s nobody has any real chance of finding a block, there is plenty of time to sort this out. If it stays at 2PH or grows, probably no real point in mining anyway. Let's be civil and calm about all our questions and comments.

    most people were interested in gpu mining at start as staking only starts after you have mature coins. I will try to add the staking guide later.

    OK this found share for pool 0! message with no accept or reject after it is getting really frustating....Can it take an hour to accept or reject it? Wouldn't it appear any other message if there was a problem?

    i understand, that is why we are trying to help as much with the guides, rest is upto devs & others in community. I am sure within days we will see GUI wallets. Also we already have a web GUI wallet.
