I don't get what the alternative for being paid is, or what you think a different delegate would provide beyond what you do ? If you get voted out, it isn't a big deal. We shut down the VPS and cancel the service.
The effort is in setting up and running 1 delegate. Once you do that, and have the knowledge base, then my upkeeping multiple nodes is not an issue. I really do not understand why this is would even be a big issue for you. You've been around here for a long time, you have gained as much trust as anyone. You'll have to rely on me initially, but perhaps that can be fixed at some point when the proper tools etc come into place. It really is an easy job currently and if you can add value back to the ecosystem that you'd do anyway, then it is a synergistic life choice. Worst case the node gets shutdown or we get kicked out as a delegate. Oh well, life moves on. If you are into collecting resume points, there is another one for you.
It isn't anything prestigious. The network just needs dependable varied people to help prevent centralization.
Honestly, you could take 100% and work twitter really hard and you'd be giving back far more value than 95%+ of the delegates.
