    John, this is a stupid idea. Stop wasting your time and money on this crap. Literally no one wants it and nobody will use it. Your beloved EVM “friends” don’t want it. The people on reddit don’t want it. Most of them think you’re insane. Half of them don’t even read your posts anymore, they just upvote them because they feel sorry for you. You and this ridiculous website are a joke and everyone is laughing at you. I’m not trying to hurt you feelings, I just thought you should know.

You and this ridiculous website are a joke and everyone is laughing at you. I’m not trying to hurt you feelings, I just thought you should know.

    First, let me say thanks for taking the time to make a new wallet, sign in and give me your honest opinion friend! Next … and this is key … you can’t hurt my feelings. I don’t have any left, so let me have it! I agree with you that it seems like they don’t want it, but that’s because they don’t know they need it. As an example, I don’t know who you are, even as the website owner and operator … I really don’t know. Maybe we’ve interacted before, maybe we’ve even joked. Maybe you’ve even called me “friend.” I really don’t know!

    What I do know is, that I provided you with a completely anonymous (even to me) platform for you to share your true opinions and feelings. Would you have used your reddit or discord account to tell me this stuff? Doubtful. That’s why you’re here to tell me, because it provides some cover for you…. and look at that … I got your genuine honest opinion without trying to spare my feelings because you feared telling me this might affect our prior relationship. Realness. It’s Beautiful! ❤️

    I appreciate you letting me know the opinions people hold on my mental health and I also appreciate you letting me know why my posts are upvoted and awarded so highly. I honestly had no idea. I wish someone had told me sooner, with straight forward words. I mean … I always suspected I was the “special” kid in the class but it’s confirmed now. Thanks homie. Really. 👊🏻

      The fact that it’s anonymous is its only redeeming feature. That will end up being it’s downfall too. I stand by my statement though. I hope you don’t waste too much of your life and money with this John. It’s old and outdated.

    I disagree with this person. I’ve grown quite fond of caches and @JBM

      I don’t know you, but you’re John’s friend and his beautiful words have blinded you. Your bias is showing. This isn’t going to go anywhere.

        My bias is showing because JBM has always been a good friend to me. Worthy of my respect and bias. Why are you so mean to him?

    @caches sucks Bro, shut the hell up! I think this is cool as hell. Who cares what he does with his time or money? Are you his wife? Take your negativity somewhere else. Keep doing you @JBM I like the upgrades so far.

    Not anonymous, will still say what I think 🙂

    On surface — I agree with the poster, this is outdated, and there are many things that I would do differently. On the other hand, I do believe in JBM and his vision for this, and I think it can work. It might work for mostly older people nostalgic for forums, but it’ll work nonetheless. What if this is the thing that finally brings boomers to crypto? Lol (sorry I don’t know at what age “boomer” begins, I just love to use the word lol)

    Would be curious to learn why the guy thinks that anonymity will be the downfall of this website.

      Well I am going to ignore the boomer comments and say thank you! 😆 I appreciate your trust and confidence! I will do my absolute best, I can promise everyone that! Look … forums feel old, I get that, but forums are still the most popular way communities and groups share ideas online to this day. I know I’m old too but I spend a lot of time on forums with my car friends, my gamer friends, my hacker friends, my philosophy friends … I even stumble on forum posts from 10 years ago that help me solve problems sometimes. It’s an old format, but it works, and it’s not owned by a megacorp that doesn’t care about us or our interests.

      I could have gone with a straight forum and it would have probably been more feature filled than the current version, but I think the social/profile aspect of it is important too because it gives everyone a place to feature themselves if they choose. A little FB, a little Twitter, a little forums, a little encrypted chat, a little file storage, a little public/private niche specific groups… with all the anonymity and love you won’t get on any other website or platform. At caches, you aren’t the product… you’re a homie.

        hmmmm I don’t know, I actually love reddit, and the only reason I’d want the social aspect is to be able to build some kind of social persona to leverage it in the future somehow. but then the whole website would be filled with people like me, and then it would just turn into twitter lol. I hate that place

I hate that place

          I too love me some Reddit. I feel like its difficult to find old content or material though. Forums make it easy to search that stuff. When I search reddit it’s so difficult to filter down to exactly what I’m looking for. I just end up going to Google to find what I need on Reddit. Sometimes I still can’t find it. I also worry that the bulk of our community communicates and engages with the public through a privately owned platform shared with millions of other communities and we have no idea who has the admin power there. We have no control over our home. That’s scary to me, because honestly I do have a lot love for all these people, and they’re smart, and the world needs to hear what they have to say … without fear of a platform deleting their voice and without fear that their identities will be exposed and their lives ruined because what they have to say may sound crazy or unpopular.

          Sure, build out a profile and promote it if you want. It’s an option, and I hope millions of people do, but it’s not the whole site. There are forums for community discussion/sharing and referencing ideas which create a more tight nit community feel than Twitter or FB. You can also create your own secret groups for your web3/eth projects, private ones for just the people you want to let in, or public ones like “ETH Heads Miami, FL” for localized or regional groups that want to meet in RL. The sky is the limit there. Then if I can get some EVMs on board maybe we can sell learning materials, courses and more to make a little coin and educate the public on this new tech. On the surface crypto’s are scary but once people understand it they go Ahah! 💡 All of this under our own roof so we can shape our message and vision for the Ethereum ecosystem and truly, really reward people for ALL their contributions no matter how small. Small contributions add up to big ones over time but often they go unnoticed. Not here though damnit! We’re different at Caches!

          From a user perspective the account creation is friction-less, it’s anonymous top to bottom, and encrypted top to bottom, so no worries about a hack doxing you or some admin following you around and spying on you. You can have a public account and a private account if you want. You can disable comments on any of your own activity posts and blog posts. Imagine if Vitalik could just make a statement without a million fake Vitalik accounts in the comments trying to scam people? The community also has the power to moderate just about everything on site, so everyone can contribute to the beauty and safety of their neighborhood. What if you could report scam posts, files, videos, even people and if enough other people report them too they’ll automatically be suspended and flagged for admin review?

          With time, or some more help, I hope to reward all those contributions as well, both emotionally and financially through my points system. See … all of you have been earning “duquets” for doing things, but there’s another secret point called “contribs” underneath that you can’t see. 👀 That way I can track a users contributions over time based on actions, without ever knowing who they are or anything. Doesn’t matter anyway, it’ll all pay the same! This will take some serious thought and planning on my part though to avoid people gaming it.

          I also want to build a home for EVMs out here on the ol’ WWW to interface with the public, share our ideas and bring more people into the fold. That’s really the ultimate goal here, push web3/ETH tech forward and bring the EVM & DAO’s mission to the world and see if we can get more cubs in the pride. When someone searches questions about web3 or a lie they heard from /r/Bitcoin, I want the EVM in those listings telling the truth. When people search I want as many of them as I can to find US first. I want the EVMs to be a recognized authority in this space so that being an EVM maybe opens some doors for them out there in the real world too.

          Thanks for the questions @captain
