Community Polls is a requested feature for a while. By saying Community Polls, I mean special polls targeted to a specific audience. We don't favor implementing off-chain rules. So, we allow any account to vote for any poll. There is no change on that, however, with communities module, we have new result filters that poll detail offers breakdown on communities.
Pilot experiment: @steemalliance
@steemalliance has a similar use case where they need to see their poll results only for whitelisted accounts. The communities feature is not open to everyone yet. I plan to expand with more communities soon. (@dolphincouncil is next).
That being said, if you have a community and need a similar voting tool, let me know so we can hook you up with a registered community at dPoll.
Custom stake based voting view
@steemalliance also needed a custom stake based voting weight algorithm where they decrease the power of the top stakeholders.
It's basically same with the traditional stake-based weight except accounts having more than 500M VESTS (roughly 250k SP). You can find more details on this post.
SA_STAKE_LIMIT = 500000000 def sa_stake_based_voting_point(vests): point = vests if vests > SA_STAKE_LIMIT: point = SA_STAKE_LIMIT * ( math.log10(vests) - math.log10(SA_STAKE_LIMIT) + 1) return float(point)
The registered member list of steemalliance is not set on the dPoll yet. So, trying it with the current state may not mean much. Community owners are free to manage that list via dPoll interface.
Community management is not synced to blockchain at the moment. All data stored off-chain inside the dPoll's database. This will be handled in the next iteration along with better community management tools.
