I will eventually post in a separate thread, but I have had a look at UI related issues on GitHub. My initial intent was to get involved with existing trading platforms but I fear that my perception of how user experience and UI layout should be adapted, especially with an understanding of the local potential market's character, may require a fork of the windows trading platform and redesign some UI features from the ground up. Would another trading platform be detrimental to rate of development and improvement of the existing or beneficial (especially considering existing other separate projects in development) ?

After some consideration I have decided to withdraw my witness proposal. I think the existing witnesses are well established with members very active in the community and high levels of contribution. I will not be able to spend that amount of time on development and activity.

I do however propose incentive for running a full node, to the degree of covering server fees and a bit. If this should happen I will happily return and get involved to some degree if I can contribute.

:-( Please reconsider. You have shown initiative, you have the skills, and you seem to quickly grasp how things work. I'd say we have active witnesses in the list who lack in more than of these regards. We need more witnesses than we have, and the pay is quite generous.

I know the lobbying part sucks for technically oriented people. And it's especially difficult for newcomers. But be persistent - all it takes is to convince some of the voting proxies. I've already voted for you.
Please vote for my BitShares witness "cyrano" and for my STEEM witness "cyrano.witness"!
