The account is not voting with some of its stake
« on: January 05, 2015, 10:52:14 PM »

I see a exclamation message near my account:
 "The account is not voting with some of its stake. Consider updating your vote."

I figure I should go to the Delegates area and THUMBS UP delegates that I like. But I don't know how many times I should do this.

Is there a way I can see how much "stake" I have and what portion is still "unvoted"?

Can I communicate with delegates through the client?

You have to vote for at least 101 delegates. This total can include delegates indirectly voted for through a published slate. You can also find more info at the wiki. http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/DPOS/ApprovalVoting

you need something like 3/4ths voting utilization for the message to go away. We're just going to remove it since it is confusing.
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

In a way its cool because it lets me know that I can do voting which otherwise isn't very obvious.
Perhaps if it just said how many out of 101 votes are missing. Example:

"You have 93 of 101 Top Delegate votes missing. In order to ensure your network fees reward the best delegates go to the Delegates page to complete voting."

For me learning that delegates are working for the bitshares network beyond just transaction processing was a big point in converting me to bitshares. So in the client the whole voting thing should be more obvious not less. An explanation of the opportunity BTS owners have to learn and vote about delegates plus a slate voting console would be ideal.

yea, just linking to the delegates list wouldn't be that great in my opinion, since that would be like voting in the real world without any knowledge of who you were voting for, or why.

a link to the wiki entry about voting for delegates might be a good idea tho.
