Title: 96%? Let's shake up witness voting.
Post by: KenMonkey on December 23, 2016, 12:10:07 am
It's bugging me that the participation rate is 96% and not 100%. It looks like bitcube ([member=20744]cube[/member]) has not produced a block in a month but is still a witness. I suggest moving votes away from bitcube and to delegate-1.lafona ([member=22138]lafona[/member]) who has the lowest missed blocks rate of the top standby witnesses.
Particularly [member=23]bitcrab[/member] [member=34]Harvey[/member] [member=15773]newtree[/member] (baicai) [member=448]Xeldal[/member] and [member=224]cass[/member]

[member=31]fav[/member] is voting awesomely, as usual. I <3 the cryptofresh voting page: http://cryptofresh.com/ballots

I'm also happy for folks to proxy to me, @kmnk
I have an interested in bitshares staying fantastic and I'll keep my votes up to date with what's working and what's not.

Voting in bitshares is super important and you can participate passively by proxying your vote to someone else. A lot of people choose [member=120]xeroc[/member] and although he is an superb community member with great knowledge he already has enormous sway (too much even by his own accounting) and doesn't respond quickly to changing workers and witnesses.

Lafona ran a superb delegate node back in the day (before BTS 2.0). He's been great to work with, and I would highly recommend him as a witness.

 +5% not a lot in the spotlight, but has always been on top of things and super reliable, an excellent witness choice.

I met lafona in amsterdm. He is a very nice guy and derserves all the votes he has received.

As for my voting, i do notice witness particiation quickly but am reluctant to kicking out witnesses that have had a few issues soo quickly. Bitcube has been important for this community and i didnt want to vote him our right away. Anyways, multiple days of downtime are a no go and thus i removed my votes aswell ..

Thanks for bringing this topic to the shareholders attention anyways

Hi guys, Thanks for the kind words. It looks like they worked. I have my feeds back up and running and will try to get a seed node up and added soon. Hope I don't disappoint. :)
