Truncating the 0 which holds the place of the 1 on bet amounts..bad mk

Featured Comment

hi there-- well, damn.  so i was betting manually on dice, and without my notice i had set my base bet @ 0.0000256, thinking it was 256 satoshi.. but the server/game/whatever site/"Gary"had decided that that zero was just taking up space, or something? I had a balance of roughly 0.022 when I started.. and in 10 rolls, it was gone, -- I blinked at the 0.00000000 .. why, for the love of god would this ever strike a developer as something that would help the bettor, who is making many quick decisions in successive fashion.. something like this is bound to happen. I feel like I just accidentally max-bet my balance. remember that fun?? for realisies though guys, the only party benefiting from a lack of accurate description of the FUCKING BET VALUE is Stake -- "qui bono?"

please give us back our aught. ;) that really sucked...lol, and to have to remind oneself to check for the number of zeroes on the inside of a grouping of numbers is awkward.  for sure i want a refund, but i know i won't get it. alas. hopefully the community can chime in with any of their experiences. Anyone ever hit any extra big bets using this tomfoolery?

well, it was tongue in cheek really. but also -- if it were a bank account, i would have the numbers in front of me, i could push them in sequence, and doublecheck to make sure i was sending the right amount. -- hui. can you find any reason for it though? i think it should be fixed.. you ... think it should remain, i must presume from your stance? xD

I think it is a thing worth fixing, but I also like to think that people that deal with money are able to be aware of the importance of zeros in amounts :)

which is why i think it's a rather devastating add-in to an otherwise longstanding tradition of having the proper number of zeros in an 8 digit spread. glancing to the right of the figure is much easier than counting inward from the decimal .. if it ain't broke, why did you fix it? cuz now i'm broke. xD
ah.

Hehe sorry, I really didn't mean it personally and technically I agree that it should be auto formatted properly - as a perfectionist and with a trading background I still had to drop the note about zeros somehow - I hope you don't mind! :)

keke.. i get it- although i might suggest that a series of 7 zeros is short 1 of a perfect set. .. ;}  I noticed it quite a while ago, just after Stake 2 was rolled out, and made comments aloud pertaining to it- I'm going to ask around in chat as well, as I seem to recall that Seven has encountered it- surely there have been many.

hui bono eh :P
