If delegates don't feel it's worth there while to participate then that just becomes another criteria for whether someone should vote for them or not. I think the ones who take the time too will benefit from the exposure. At a certain point I believe poor performance delegates will voted out regardless so the competition will be between the delegates who go the extra mile and provide information like this.
Yeah that's true. I'm on board with the idea regardless of how much it gets used by voters in the short term. Now the question is how do we collaborate to come up with a standard for this?
I think something relatively simple should work fine as discussed, some basic "Bitsharesblocks" metrics, a few fields for input from delegates and maybe a spot for delegates to submit transactions showing usage of pay funds for various uses.
The trick will be to get someone to build a site that let's delegates register, pulls up their stats, polls them for the user defined data and let's them submit transactions with notes plus whatever else is deemed desirable for this.
If svk had an API I could poll on bitsharesblocks.com I could do it in .NET fairly easily I think, I could probably figure out running a local client on the web server and getting the data using RPC calls but that would definitely take more time. If nobody else jumps on this in the next few weeks or more and I can finish up some other side projects I'm working on I'll definitely give it a shot.
