Good post explaining some detail about witness' role. I've a few questions here:
Why do we have to go to the ~witness and then type your username for voting? Couldn't it be possible that you or any witness can provide us some direct link where we just need to click for the vote? Is it difficult to develop such a facility ...to make voting process easier for users?
Why do posting key is not enough for voting to witnesses and we need active key for this action?
Can you reveal your analysis of the witness you recommend right now (or on a regular basis) instead of asking for proxy rights to you?
I've seen such posts earlier too where new Steemians are disparaged as if they have done something wrong by not voting to any witnesses. How are they expected to vote any witness without even knowing what they are doing? Even one month is not sufficient to know 100 or more witnesses and selecting 30 best ones out of them.
What's wrong if no witness is voted? Instead of voting a wrong one, won't it be better to not to vote at all?
Where can I find a comparative chart or analysis for what each witness is doing or had done since becoming a witness?
Is there any channel or a time slot, where all witness canvass for votes and answer any queries we may have got for them?
