Witness Survey v1
Before we begin I want to thank each Steemian that took time to submit a question for this survey. Your desire to see our blockchain improve is what will make this this place continue to prosper. As we discussed in our first announcement, we want this project to become a tool for the community to seek out where each witness stands on the issues that matter the most to Steemians like you. We had a total of 19 questions submitted by 10 different Steemians who are seeking to learn more of their elected representatives. You'll be able to find the questions below:
What is your position/stance on bid-bots (ownership/delegations/opinion)? - @abh12345, @ammonite
What does the witness want to do to make the blockchain more user-friendly and help to on-board new users. What do THEY personally want to see done and what will they do to get it there? - @ericwilson
Do you think votes for witnesses should last indefinitely or should they time out (or perhaps decay over time) so that periodically voters will need to reevaluate and affirm their positions by recasting their votes? - @harvhat
Do you think the 30 witness votes each steemian gets is the correct number, especially in light of the fact there are only 20 top witnesses to be seated? - @harvhat
What is the monthly cost of equipment? - @abh12345
Where do your earnings go? - @abh12345
[What are some of your] Current projects? - @abh12345
[Will you provide an] Alt accounts list? - @abh12345
What are the benefits associated with being a witness? - @klassic
How do I become a witness? - @steemingmark
What do you think the SBD [STEEM] price for a new account should be? - @harvhat
What is a witness and how I become a good worker? - @rubaethsyed
Have you implemented any new procedures for evaluating potential hardforks? - @patrickulrich
How does a new user make the availability of his vote known to the cabal of witnesses wannabes trying to overthrow the current witness regime? - @grimgriz
Should we have interest for SBD? - @patrickulrich
What takeaways do you have from the Hardfork 20 issues that occurred? - @patrickulrich
Do you think 20/21 top witnesses a good number or should there be more or less? - @harvhat
We will distribute this survey to every active Steem witness over the coming days via a memo transfer to their Steem wallet with the following text:
Thank you for supporting Steem by maintaining your witness. Steemians have created the first @witnesssurvey questionnaire that we'd like for you to participate in. Please respond to each question within a new Steem post and then leave a comment on this post for us to find your responses by 12/11/2018 so we can share your views with the community. [LINK]As soon as the survey has been sent to each witness a new post from @witnesssurvey will be created detailing the block that each witness was notified of the survey's existence.
For WitnessesPlease copy and paste the above questions into a Steem post, or as a comment to this post, and respond in line to each question with your response. Once you've created your response post please leave a comment to this post with a link to your submission by no later than December 11, 2018. We will then compile all witness responses into a single post for Steemains to identify where their witnesses stand on the issues that mattered most to them.
For SteemiansPlease consider sharing this survey with your fellow Steemians. While we will not be including new questions in this round we do want to bring as much awareness about these important questions that have been asked. We also ask that once responses have been made to the survey that you consider utilizing your witness votes to elect the representatives that best reflect your values and ideals for this community.

It is intended to act as an easy reference point for where to locate data on each witness even if they choose to not participate in this project.
