Here is a very nice guide about how to start as delegate.
https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares_toolkit/wiki/DPOS-Registering-Names-And-Delegates

Don't hurry to be a delegate, have a look at the guides first, it will help you a lot.

First rule: do not run delegate in the GUI and then vote for your self.
Second rule: find and vote in good guys, never approval for those delegate with low reliability and don't produce blocks.
Third rule: do you remember to unlock 999999999 for enough long time before go to bed?

I think this important:
4rd rule: don't forget to change network param, in console type:
Code: [Select]
network_set_advanced_node_parameters {"desired_number_of_connections":50, "maximum_number_of_connections":100}
Update: Another very nice guide https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares_toolkit/wiki/DPOS-initial-delegate-setup

As I found yesterday the most important things for delegate it's to have time synchronized with reliable worldwide ntp, if time of delegate different too much - 99% that delegate will miss the block. Time synchronization become even more important in VM environment, if your delegate works as VM.

Hug? I thought there is basic NTP implemented in the toolkit ..

Anyway .. running a NTP daemon has lots of benefits besides bitshares

There is a very basic one, but NTP is a complex algorithm that factors in many things over many samples.   The built in one only uses one sample point and is only really able to get the time to about 1 second accuracy if it works.    Running NTPD will help a lot and I strongly recommend it.

Is there any other dry run planned? I was a delegate during Dry Run 8, but used only the Windows GUI.

Lots of good info here. 

Anyway to test that your delegate is working properly or would work if approved as a delegate?

Can  you provide a short guide to setting up ntpd?

What about time synchronization in VMs?

Yes, dry runs will continue as we add new features to the test chain.  Once features are proven in dry runs, developers/operators like DACSunlimited will choose when to migrate them into their commercial products like BTSX.

Bitsapphire (http://bitsapphire.com/Bitshares-Delegate/) is currently setting up 5 dedicated servers for our 5 delegates in our server coop.

We'll need funds to register our delegates later today.

We will also publish 5 initial software ideas we want to reinvest our profits into for the community.
Back our bid as a BitShares Delegate! http://bitsapphire.com/Bitshares-Delegate

In cycling terms, I'm off the back.  I just completed ~26 hours of block production yielding a 96.67 % production rate, missing just three blocks.

Looking for some additional approval from the community to place my delegate back into the top 101 to keep the network decentralized.
