gentso-biz-dev.poweredby-thom ?

hehe

When you say it like that delegate.verbaltech just rolls off the tongue.
haha true. what bitshares needs is a name plus a little subtitle discription for delegates!!

I think this is a great idea.

Their has been a point of suggesting the delegates work in a pairs  or as members of a team. It would be nice if, at the very least we could link our accounts to a delegate in order to show team members. Even better would be if their was a little about me button where a delegate could do a quick 2 line write up on what they hope to do for the community.

That makes sense.. and pretty sure there is a plugin to accomplish that.

Just voted. Current position is 126!

UPDATE about Delegate.Verbaltech
« Reply #50 on: July 24, 2015, 06:57:05 pm »
This post is to inform the community about sudden changes to the status of delegate.verbaltech, which is now offline.

The first hint of any problem came from DataSecurityNode via skype who reported the delegate was offline. It looks like it went offline during the mumble hangout.

I was unable to login to the VPS. I reviewed the email for the VPS account and it looks like Gentso changed it and the VPS password. This was all his doing, and I am shocked and taken aback by his lack of communication. I spoke with gentso on Monday on skype, who stepped away to answer a phone call. He returned only by text msg that he had to go and would talk to me later. I haven't spoke to him since.

Stan PM'd me to ask how to reach gentso. I explained that there seems to be an issue with the forum, b/c you can no longer PM gentso1 by typing in that username, but you can PM him if you find one of his previous posts. Stan said he PM'd gentso but did not hear back.

That's all I know at this point. I have no idea what gentso is up to. It looks like he is stepping away from BitShares. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt regarding his motivations for his actions but it doesn't look good from my perspective. I can see no valid reason for cutting communications off cold like he has. If he wished to disengage & shut down the delegate he is of course free to decide to do that. Why he chose not to inform me of his intent to do that is a complete mystery.

Bottom line is delegate.verbaltech is his delegate and he is free to do with it as he wishes. I just expected he would have had the integrity to keep his partner and the community better informed.

Very disappointing.

You mean yet another project that was talked up big time that couldn't even stand upright out of the gates?  Another one bites the dust.  How many more before the red curtains close?

Thank you for bringing this up Thom, as it would have been very easy to just let slide.  Its probably more difficult for you to bring this up since you are so close to the project.  Good to see you have integrity.

That said, we should down vote this delegate right away.  @bytemaster, please withdraw your votes from this delegate.  I believe we have too many non performing 100% delegates and we need to move more 3% or less delegates in.

Thanks Lil_jay.  I think a call for a down vote is appropriate. Although I haven't' heard from gentso, and thus don't know why he has taken this course of action, I do believe this was his choice.

If you have your WIF key for the delegate then please contact me and we will get your delegate up and running at the bunker.

I don't care about whatever politics or issues are going on ATM I am more concerned with the network status.

I am available through the evening to get the delegate server back online if you still got the key to do it.

I disagree with you on this point.. every 100% delegate I am involved with is working every single day on something to do with advancing bitshares. There are also others who have not been voted in that are doing a lot... voters seems to have chosen not to support them yet.

I'm not saying every 100% delegate is underperforming.... but I think everyone would agree that some are major under performers.  I do believe bunker mining or c-lains would be a good choice to replace verbaltech if I had to choose another 100% delegate.

Thank you Jonathon, that's very generous of you to offer.

I have all the info required to restore the delegate operation on a new VPS, but the question is, is that the correct course of action?

verbaltech was a 100% business development delegate. I was getting a 15% fee to support the technical work and gentso got 85%

I would certainly be willing to send the 85% somewhere else, if that is what the community wants to do. Although it wasn't much due to the low marketcap, I was very grateful to have that source of funds coming in. My computer services business is my only other source of income, and in a town of only 300 people it doesn't always bring in enough to pay the bills.

If the community is willing to support my role as a witness and have me redirect the delegate fees elsewhere I have the required account keys.

Gentso was planning on sending me a USB stick that I was going to put all of the delegate info on and send it back to him. He never followed through however. So I am the person with all the necessary info to restore delegate operation.

I am not clear DSN what exactly you were disagreeing with about lib_jay's post. As far as I'm concerned delegate.verbaltech is done, unless the community wants to keep me in place as a witness and have me direct the funds elsewhere. It should be up to the community.
