The thread is for delegates to discuss with each other and improve the operation skills of each other, answering questions from delegate.

Let's improve the health of the network, 100% up time!

Here is a very nice guide about how to start as delegate.
https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares_toolkit/wiki/DPOS-Registering-Names-And-Delegates

Don't hurry to be a delegate, have a look at the guides first, it will help you a lot.

1th rule: Do not run delegate in the GUI and then vote for your self.
2th rule: find and vote in good guys, never approval for those delegate with low reliability and don't produce blocks.
3th rule: do you remember to unlock 999999999 for enough long time before go to bed?

And, its a good practice to run the program in screen.

Thanks for this. Other than not voting for yourself is there any other reason not to run delegate in the GUI?  I'll be setting up a dedicated Ubuntu headless rig for this once I get it compiled but for now it's just the Windows client.

Does voting take into account balance of the voter?

+5% +5% +5%

Any recommendation for the hardware? or common PC is OK?

I recommend to use a stable VPS, at least 2GB Memory and > 40 GB for now. That would not cost too much, just $20~$40 each month.

You can improve your hardware over time as the requirement changing.

I think this important:
4rd rule: don't forget to change network param, in console type:
Code: [Select]
network_set_advanced_node_parameters {"desired_number_of_connections":50, "maximum_number_of_connections":100}
Update: Another very nice guide https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares_toolkit/wiki/DPOS-initial-delegate-setup
Update: As I found yesterday the most important things for delegate it's to have time synchronized with reliable worldwide ntp, if time of delegate different too much - 99% that delegate will miss the block. Time synchronization become even more important in VM environment, if your delegate works as VM.

Whats the reasoning behind not voting for yourself?  or is that only for the GUI.  If so why is that?

Because getting a delegate is now a popularity contest. :)

I see no reason why this shouldn't be allowed. I mean what's preventing one to create a separate wallet and vote for themselves anyways.

My understanding is because votes are based on stake.  It wouldn't matter how many accounts you have because your total stake, or voting power, would be the same.

You totally missed the point, I didn't imply it's not based on stake:

1) Why shouldn't I be allowed to vote for myself with my own stake?
2) What's preventing me from creating a delegate B) then voting for B) with A) which has the large % stake?! :)
