The primary thing we are trying to avoid is giving the initial delegates undo advantage of votes from those who lost their keys, donated from an exchange, or are too lazy to get involved.  For this reason starting all votes as 'negative' votes means that the real names with real votes will get in priority over those we assign.  It also removes any accusations of bias in initial delegate selection. 

Changing the name to be 'unelected-your-name-x' allows people to see your performance and thus vote for 'your-name-x'. 

We could give you just 'your-name-x' but if we start you out with negative votes from passive users it may end up poorly for you.

I think your doing the right thing.  This sounds good.  I was concerned that we would be competing with ourselves to get a real name in to a spot but with the negative votes, as you've explained, clears this up.  Thank you. 

Will a new delegate with 0 votes push out an init-delegate with negative votes?

Yes

Thanks for the explanation!


One more thing... I've seen somewhere comments about enabling "no-vote" state. Isn't this contrary to the idea in the DPOS whitepaper? Will this be implemented?
Here is the quote in question:

This sounds like a good idea. I'd modify it in that after shares start paying inactivity fees they should no longer vote, which means we need a no-vote state anyway, instead of generating fake delegates to sink votes.

We will probably say something like "unelected-yourusername-xx"
Well that is what i didnt like in the first place.
What is the reasoning in this?
Why not leave the names as is? They have low votes and the stake decides what should happen?
You have enough stake to do whatever you want anyway.... at least in the beginning.

Yes I don't see the difference.  If everyone has to create another delegate anyway just leave the names as they are.  init-delegate or uneletected, same thing.  The point of picking a name was to avoid the mess of everyone needing to recreate another delegate and compete with themselves for a spot, but it seems we will have to do this anyway.  I say just leave it.

Same as betax I did not arrive home in time to be part of the previous delegate batch and have been running a highly connected node instead, but if possible could you add these:

Code: [Select]
joeyd-d1: XTS7xm5K6cVv8y7dowzjTBLTwWBXQDVvKHsU3a5qDhcUSwvcwjV4u
joeyd-d2: XTS549hCkKyf4UM7rNEeF7Q83CBYdetx3smujtX2FazXTDoWnyuDW

joeyd-d5: XTS671QbNrgCy945UDPRmDPf3ARQaP6vHBXAH25mt1oB5QRsrwaLS

Btw, is it possible to use a different datadir for the client apart from the usual .Bitshares\ XTS one?

use --data-dir yournewdatadir

Because those people didn't get voted in, they are all chosen pretty much arbitrarily. It's to emphasize we are not endorsing them and they are just there as a consequence of the fact that you need *some* initial delegates.

Sounds reasonable. I just didn't like the negativism in "untrusted".

You have enough stake to do whatever you want anyway.... at least in the beginning.

Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.
