Hi everyone, thank you for checking out this week's ETC newsletter! Big shout out and many thanks to all the developers, miners, community members, user's and investors. Last week started off little hectic due to some network issues (detailed below) that the ETC network experienced for a few hours. I kept the monetary policy update from the last newsletter since it is still such a hot topic throughout the community. We also have an upcoming ETC event in London, an interview featuring Chandler Guo and another article from Dr. Seberino discussing smart contracts. Thank you for taking the time to read and distribute this newsletter, looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
ETC Monetary Policy Proposal by @Snaproll is now officially out as ECIP-1017.
Hi everyone, please read this announcement about the network issues that were experienced last week.
The ETC network experienced an abnormally high level of orphans for a few hours on 11-23-16. The situation is still being investigated. If you suspended deposits/withdrawals, we consider it safe to resume deposits/withdrawals.
If anyone (especially miners) notices some suspicious behavior of their Parity node, please save the Parity log WITHOUT restarting Parity (as it overwrites its log upon restart). After the log is saved please send the log to [email protected] (use tags #bugreport and #parity) for investigation.
Please read the bullet points below for answers to the most common questions:

Reddit user "bitp" has brought it to the communities attention that the "Ethereum Classic" Wikipedia link currently redirects to "Ethereum". ETC community member /u/FaceDeer was previously a Wikipedia editor and has provided some insight on what should be done moving forward. One of his recommendations is that we start the process by adding to the Ethereum Classic section that is currently on the Ethereum Wikipedia page. ETC can then be given its own page after volunteers have submitted enough info. Please see his full post in the reddit thread linked below.
