Silk Road discussion / Shipping changes
« on: October 28, 2011, 06:39 am »
UPDATE:  we are making a few modifications to the way this will work, so it's taking a little longer than expected.  Should have it up in the next couple of hours, though.

Hash: SHA1

Hi everyone,

We are making a small change to the site that we hope will make it easier for you to find what you are looking for and purchase it.  We are now giving everyone the option of choosing their "home country" so that only listings that are offered there will be displayed to you.  If you would rather not reveal where you are from, you may choose "undeclared" and you will see all listings still.  Also, with this information, we will be able to include the proper shipping options for you so you don't have to purchase a separate listing for international and priority services.

This change will go into effect in three days at 11 pm UTC on the 29th of October, but you may update your home country on your settings page at any time.

I hope you enjoy this update.  See you around the site :)

Silk Road discussion / site glitches
« on: October 25, 2011, 07:53 pm »
Hey gang,

We've got a bug somewhere that's causing some actions on the site to be glitchy.  Like items not being added/removed from the cart, actions on the order page not showing up, and so on.  It looks like it is a cache issue somewhere, so we are working on fixing it.  Until we do, if you experience one of these glitches, just hit ctrl+f5 on your keyboard and your browser will refresh with the most up-to-date version of the page you are on.

This is not a bug and it has always worked this way.  We use a 24 hour moving average of the exchange rate to adjust vendor's prices, not the up-to-the-minute exchange rate you see in the bottom left.  So, when the price moves quickly, there can be a discrepancy between these two rates.  That's the point though, we don't want sharp intraday fluctuations in the exchange rate to push the prices on the site all around.

Silk Road discussion / recent deposits
« on: October 22, 2011, 06:00 pm »
UPDATE:  Quite a few people sending deposits from mtgox.com have not received theirs because of problems on mtgox's side.  If a deposit from mtgox is not showing up, please check the block chain at:
to see if the deposit was even sent.  If not, you need to message mtgox about it.

CORRECTION:  Please message us on the MAIN site via the contact us link, not here on the forums.

Many of the deposits that were sent to the site this week have not been properly credited to the depositors accounts.  We don't have a good way to automatically figure out where the deposits should go, so we are having to process them manually.  If you made a deposit that is taking longer than about six hours to show up, just send us the address the deposit was sent and the amount of the deposit and we'll be able to track it down and credit your account.

Also, to be on the safe side, you should only use newly generated addresses from your account page from now on.  We generated a new address for every account, so the one currently on your account page should be good.

There have been a few strange instances where people's deposits ended up in other users' accounts, so we've disabled withdrawals and transfers until everyone has a chance to claim their deposits.  If you got a deposit that wasn't yours, please let us know so we can get it to the right account.

Cheers   8)

Read the Buyer's Guide.  There is a link to it from the how it works link in the footer on the main site.

hey all, it's a little mixed up, but we've been able to track down everyone's coins that are missing so far.  Just message us on the main site with the address they were sent to and the amount of the deposit.

forgive the tech ignorance, and i am not trying to spread FUD.  but lets logic through. is it possible for some one to create a new hidden service and hijack the old address to use for phishing (if so i doubt le is really that sophisticated).  Is the .onion address the hash of a privkey that is needed to publish?  so w/o that privkey it would be impossible (infeasible) to some how hijack.  tor runs on what sha1?

The two best ways to be sure that the site hasn't been secretly taken over by law enforcement or some hacker is the .onion urls, and the official Silk Road public key.  The .onion urls correspond to private keys that must be present on the server running Silk Road in order for it to be validated.  Without these keys, no one can impersonate dkn255hz262ypmii.onion or ianxz6zefk72ulzz.onion.  But, if the servers were compromised, someone could take these keys and impersonate the sites.

That's why I always GPG sign my important messages, so you know it is me.  My personal private key could also be stolen if I were ever physically compromised or my personal computer were hacked, but it is another layer of validation.

Will there be some measurements taken for this not to happen anymore in the future? Or at least not that often?
Since i am a member the website is laggy as hell!

Besides trying to find ever more reliable proxies, we are also going to have at least one full capacity backup server idling at all times from now on.

SR while you are here, hows everything going in general? how do you feel your experiment is going?

Couldn't be happier :D  This is the most fun I've had in my adult life!  We'll get through this speed-bump and be better for it.
