I'm on Windows 10. I'll just use the Exchange as my wallet and I'll  just keep trading GLD. Sell Higher, Buy lower :) I don't have many anyway so I need to try and build up my holdings again.

I've tried a number of times and no matter what I do I can't download the wallet .exe.

My system just won't let it download and I'm not messing with my security settings.  So is there another a way I can get the .exe file?

I've been using  the main page for the wallet.

Design Positive Feedback:

-  First time run popup warning to be smaller.
-  Pending balance having an estimated time until its available balance.
-  The word "label" to be replaced with "message" or "note"
-  "Subtract fee from amount" sentence needs to be moved a little bit to the right
-  "Enter a Goldcoin address" box to be resized until it is symmetrical
-  Once the "send as zero-fee transaction" box is ticked, the recommended and custom tickers/boxes get disabled (grayed out)
-  Remove hard to understand sentences (too much information going on at once) such as these:

   - "Smart fee not initialized yet, This usually takes a few blocks...)"
   - Remove the part from the "confirmation time target" with only the time, no block amount, the block amount doesnt matter to the casual user.

These sentences create confusion and isn't important to the casual user, if you feel like having more information about that option replace the sentence with a simple "?" box where the user receives a popup where they can read more about that following option.

I think you will end up with a lot less headaches from user complaints (that their transaction didn't happen) as long as the user is forced to check the box for a free transaction.  The location point is sort of moot, but others may disagree.

The location isn't moot because it replaces a redundant line of operation within the client which then makes the custom settings less complex, easier to understand, and logical (while currently they are not). Eg. It's impossible for a "zero fee" and a "required fee" to exist simultaneously.

Would it make sense to relocate the "Send as zero fee transaction" box as shown, replacing the required fee box?



And then replace the tool tip message to read:

Quote
Paying a zero fee is just fine as long as there is free transaction space available in the blocks. But be aware that this can end up in a never confirming transaction if the demand for free transactions has exceeded 5% of the block capacity.

If we elect to go this route, we could just make .001 the minimum on the adjustable counter, since the only lower setting is zero anyway. This would force the user to choose between zero-fee via checkbox, or minimum or something higher via counter.

Additional note: We probably want the zero-fee transaction box to be clear by default, and after each client restart.

The new custom 'zero-fee', although clear to me, will not be for individuals who do not understand some of the basics behind GoldCoin or Crypto in general.  While I think it would be nice to 'cater' to every single person, I believe it is our job (as a community) to help explain the 'zero transaction' feature. 

Personally I would leave it be and ensure a basic help manual (1 page) was written to briefly describe feature in the wallet.

Playing devils advocate as a 'new person', I could be frustrated by my transaction taking longer (based on the advertised benefits).  This will happen when the network transactions pick up.  However, until then I believe we are still making a good name for GoldCoin by illustrating zero transactions.
