@fav, I think you should modify your OP to include the "witness settings" you expect witnesses to follow.

If I show up on your "24 hour unvote warning" I'd like to have a clue what caused it.

It also helps non-witnesses so they know the criteria you use for inclusion / exclusion.

I expect as time goes on the witnesses will converge on the "right" parameters their nodes should operate under. Your efforts are great at getting us there. +5%

There will be other, deeper levels of operation that will be refined as time goes by, like when we get the backbone system implemented (calling @wackou) and higher degrees of failover support, statistics monitoring and the like in place. We should be encouraging and not too quick to "oust" a witness for their adoption / implementation of new agreed upon "settings". That agreement is not a formal process but rather informal as witnesses communicate and get up to speed on whatever the "new" thingy is.

All in all I think things are progressing fairly well. Getting parameters like the "short squeeze" setting moved up to a more appropriate level of decision makers so as to keep the role of witnesses non-political won't happen quickly, so IMO that particular setting should not be a criteria for inclusion or exclusion.

Minimizing response time to missed blocks and alerts is very important IMO but one or two instances aren't enough data to decide the quality of a witness' service; that is a metric which gets better as more samples are taken.

Anyway, these are just some thoughts I had. Hopefully they're helpful.

those settings are communicated by witness consensus in the witness telegram channel. also, the telegram bot displays current settings :)

I don't understand fav. The commands in spartako's bot don't list parameters (witness settings). Here are the list of commands:

/help
/price
/missed
/monitor
/stopmonitor
/listmonitor
/status
/feed
/slots
/setslot
/rmslot

These control the bot and the info you get from it, they say nothing about such things as "short squeeze" setting.

Not only that, but you didn't address the point about having those settings / criteria made public so everyone will know what specific criteria YOU are basing your votes on.

if there's no official thread on the purpose of worker init0 I will reject it within 24 hours.

We need to establish a certain standard and that means at least an official proposal for workers.

RE: fee debate

BitShares (Shares!) 40 BTS/TX fee is perfectly fine in my opinion.

However, our bitAssets should be free or close to being free

I will vote for worker: mindphlux-bitasset-poolfund - 1.14.4 - (https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,19317.0.html) to fund the fee pools as soon as possible.

Why I am not surprised?... oh well in the "perfect system" in your opinion( NXT ) they are almost free...

and I assume you mean our IOUs, when you say our  bitAssets .

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

I understand it as using bitAssets (bitUSD, etc) should be nearly free but moving BTS around should be expensive.

I think that the fav-(-non favoritism-except for NXT)  [not voting for you or any witness that, I like for that matter], proxy will come here soon and clarify his statements.

Thanks fav. I am unable to dedicate the time required to run a reliable witness node with accurate feeds and meaningful/timely parameters. I'll still be kicking about if the need arises but there seems to be no shortage of high quality witness candidates that are willing and able to do what is required of the position  +5% .

Sorry to see you leave that role Riverhead. Was kindof hoping to see you move up the food chain into a committee member slot.

Wish you all the best in your future endeavors!  :)
