πŸ“£ State of the Witnesses #8

πŸ“„ What is 'State of the Witnesses' ?

State of the witnesses will be a regular update provided to the community on the status of the Smoke.io witnesses. The intent is to keep members informed of what is happening on the platform and what witnesses are doing. It is important that members of the community vote for witnesses that represent them and are driving the platform in the right direction. These updates are not intended to be all inclusive, but should only be a portion of the information used for your decision making.

In addition to the overall status, each update will also feature one witness in the "Witness Spotlight". This will allow the community to get a deeper look into the person/group behind the witness and how they play a part in Smoke.io.


πŸ“° Current Update

Just this week we had are first required update to address a memory allocation issue that was a security vulnerability. The witness response was quite positive and many had completed the update within hours of the release.

We had two witness that where disabled last report come back online (beyondbitcoincas & koh) but unfortunately the remaining 9 disabled witness from last report are still in the top 50. In fact, one witness (s144) has been disabled for 3 MONTHS! and is still in the top 50. We should not have any witness in the top 50 that has been disabled for more than 1 week. EVERYONE needs to check their witness votes NOW! We should do our best to make sure the top 50 spots are held by operational nodes.

Thanks for the update. Upsmoked, resmoked and added you as a Witness.

Damn! It escape my mind. I just remember we talked about "me refreshing my witness following." This is one of the goodness this State of the Witnesses. It is a great article.

This one that some witnesses are getting slash out like this and some of them are those that will be bouncing into peoples pm for upvote. Reason why witness need to be active and at least update us once in a while how their work have been going so far. So one can know who to reserve upvote for and who is not.
Thanks for updating us boss. πŸ˜€ 🌱

Let me go and do the needful now. πŸ–₯.... πŸšπŸƒ

πŸ˜›Ya to me it takes time for me to get to know someone and them prove they are serious before I like to vote. Just talking good stuff is meaningless. Let's see the actions first.

Β·
Β·

Hahaha... Exactly the same thing I feel whenever I see someone talking vote with me. But at last am always like let the community decide whether you deserve the vote or not. If you do you will definitely get it in bunches. All witness votes error clear from my side now. Thanks for the update.

I support witness vote decay :)

Good idea to prevent permanent votes, would have to be over a long period of time though similar to a normal election

Β·
Β·

ya, some thought needs to be put into it. Do you base it on activity on the platform or witness voting activity or a combination of both? If a person is not active for months on the platform should that be enough to diminish their vote? If a person is active but doesn't do any witness vote changes does that mean they forgot about it, or they are still 100% confident in their vote? Should there be a required "confirm votes" after a certain period of time? So many questions to answer :-P

Β·

Interesting idea, I'll have to think on that one :-)

Thanks forn the witness update
I think if we know other active witness who are not presently in the top 50, we can vote for them and take them above the inactive witness since those who voted for them are not making attempt to unvote them.sincebtyey are not in the top 50, we might not known them.

Β·

Yes that is an option, but it is a slippery slope just voting for someone you don't know much about just to bump them up.

if they can be sharing their witness report frequently like most active witness do, may be we can get to know them. What do you think?

Β·

That's the whole idea. You should fell comfortable that a witness is active and doing good things for the chain. Too many times people show up out of the blue, fire up a witness and throw out a post of all the great things they plan to do. My feeling is one should prove themselves before getting my witness vote, not just talk a good line.

Thanks for being part of Smoke.
Voted you as a witness. Good luck and Happy New Year!
