What About Downvoting Witnesses?

in worthless •  5 months ago

Currently, we are able to vote for a witness, but how about being able to vote against a witness? There's no way I could ever find enough witnesses worthy of a vote to fill all my slots, but I could easily use every slot I have for a downvote.

Hell, it would give me a reason to power up.

Just repeating a comment of mine, because lazy:

Good idea. Maybe we should also reduce the number of witness votes we get to 10, so not all top-20 witnesses can vote for eachother directly, and besides, who can identify twenty good witnesses anyway?

Some other tweaks for witness voting may also be in order. What we have now, DPOS with the wealth distribution as it is, just isn't as decentralised as it perhaps could be, and will resist changes that benefit the out-crowd.

But then, maybe all DPOS systems tend towards centralisation through increasingly lopsided wealth distributions, being decentralised de jure but de facto run and controlled by a conglomerate of 20, only with a less efficient infrastructure than a fully centralised system.

There go my last voters.

"There go my last voters."

No true. I voted for this as well as the original. And I'll probably power up soon, so those votes will be worth something to boot.

Also, working on the chapter, don't sweat. Had some mom related and real life stuff to do.

Yay! Make us rich!

Real life trumps writing chapters, especially in your case. Chapters can wait.

·
·

BTW do you post your chapters somewhere else as well? Just in case.

·
·
·

No, but perhaps I should. This site hasn't been doing so well. Performance-wise. Well, or otherwise, to be honest.

·

You still got me! Not that one stupid Dane counts that much.

·

You count.

I dont kow much about witness and how it works but there must every possibility on steemit Hava a nice day @schattenjaeger

·

Yes, it would seem that every possibility must be. But what truly is the nature of being? What is and what isn't? What is being? The essence of it?

Are we the figment of someone's imagination? Is this a VR simulation? Do we exist solely within our own heads?

All this, and more, in my next post.

You're bluffing.

Good idea, it'd make the site more corruption-free. Also, I'm browsing the "you" tag, and it's surprisingly active!

·

Haha. :D
I wonder what takes place in the "fuck" tag. I don't dare to have a look.

·
·

You're trending there, in second place, after some DPorn advertisement upvoted using buildawhale.

I checked, so you don't have to.

I would love to downvote some witnesses. Seldom had much joy in voting for them.

·

It would be a nice way of using your stake.

Witness Whales watch out!

I love that idea! So simple, yet so useful.

I cant see a good reason why we should be able to downvote, neither a good reason why we shouldnt

That’s pretty brilliant, actually. I could see it leading to a massive downvote war, though, as a result of the childish reactions we so often see here.
