Delegates community poll

Good vs Bad Delegates community polls

I have asked myself: how to create a community driven Delegates slate?
And I came to the conclusion that we could utilize a permanent poll for good and bad Delegates.
This way every investor, member and slate maintainer can use the community poll results for their own decisions.
Let me know what you think about this.

For now you can vote once a week!
Each voter can add one custom delegate and if you want more delegates to be added feel free to send me an pm.

If you like you can integrate this polls into your own websites.

too many choices on both sides .. IMHO, delegates at 3% or less don't even get to pay their servers for the delegates .. so that should be considered harmless anyway ..
Give BitShares a try! Use the provided by

I think this is an outright dangerous idea.

Voting is supposed to be an instrument of the shareholders. Shareholders can vote in proportion to the number of shares they are holding.

With your poll(s), *anyone* can vote (indirectly), not just shareholders. Also, such polls can be manipulated with the effect that a single bad guy can control a large number of votes (indirectly).

Please stop this.
Please vote for my BitShares witness "cyrano" and for my STEEM witness "cyrano.witness"!
