as we want to make sure that confirmed transactions are possible again and that all nodes are well connected, @winston and me will restructure the topology of the network from scratch (CfB said that this will solve current problems). How so? We want that all people that are already running or want to run a full node to message @moodledidoodledi with the following information:
-Your unique @-name on slack
-Wether your node will run on you home PC or on a server -If you are new to IOTA or not
After 24h, we will create a google doc where we put each name in and make sure that PC/Server and old/new are well mixed. Then we will provide you with a link to the spreadsheet and you have to message the three names above and below of your name in order to get their IP (these will be your node neighbours).
IMPORTANT: Of course, this is completely voluntary, though the more full nodes participate in this, the better. If you participate it is an absolute MUST REQUIREMENT that your node runs 24/7. No exception.
UPDATE: 31 nodes already participate in our efforts to make topology great again. Even if you are well connected now, consider the following: A) After we rebuild topology, your good connection might switch to a bad connection, as the neighbours around you participated, but you didn’t. B) You help to make the Network great for ALL, not just for a few users and C) you help new users that want to run a full node
