🐳 Whaleshares State of the Witnesses - Update #29
📝 What is "State of the Witnesses"?
State of the witnesses will be a regular update provided to the community on the status of the Whaleshares 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 the Whaleshares community.
There are currently 22 witnesses disabled in the top 50, which is up 2 from last report. Please review your witness votes. Any witness disabled for more that 24 hours should be un-voted, at least temporarily until they become active again.
Disabled witnesses in top 20
Many of these disabled witnesses have votes from users that are no longer active on the platform so their votes will not be removed. So you may want to consider voting for active witnesses below the top 50 to help move them past these longtime disabled witnesses.
Active witnesses outside of top 50
Witness voting is a responsibility of all member and not just a one time deal. Everyone should make it a habit to regularly review their votes and make adjustments.
And as always, if you don't feel comfortable choosing witnesses to vote for you can always choose to proxy your votes to someone you trust who has taken the time to identify witnesses they feel are right for the platform.
Top 20 Witnesses that have missed 10 or more blocks
Note: There was an issue discovered with the visibility flag setting and an updated version of the witness code has been released. This was causing some witnesses to hang and miss large numbers of block as seen in the list below. This can also be attributed to some of the witness that missed large numbers of block in the last report as well.
