Okay, give us the cost of the plugin and a dash public address and we'll crowdfund it right here and now.
If the collateral is spent the badge remains right?
All I'm saying is, while it's true that multiple MNs would be able to vote in the poll, it's far more contained / limited to abuse than a forum where anyone (unlimited) can signup And being it's MNOs that vote on proposals in the end, we might say a MN only poll might well produce a more accurate result.
This one may fit the bill, but I haven't researched this topic yet, was just the first applicable find.
A poll where anyone can apply whatever filter he desires, cannot be abused. The vote filtering is an anti-abuse method. Imagine you create a poll asking something, and someone subscribes 1000 forum accounts and vote on it. No big deal, you just apply the filter and you can see the result of the poll by taking into account only the masternodes votes. To filter the votes this results exactly the same accuracy than the one you are trying to achieve by introduting a MNO only poll. But when you have a MNO only poll, you are losing information. Another guy may want to apply a reverse filter, in order to see how many fake accounts voted in this poll. This is also usefull information, it shows that the poll you created led to piss off some people. And another guy may want to apply a different filter, asking only the votes of the masternodes who own more than 100 masternodes to appear. Or maybe he wants to see what is the opinion of the miners, in this issue. How can this information be extracted, if you have isolated your poll and you allow only the masternode owners/operators to vote on it?
If you isolate the polls and allow only a specific type of community members to vote (being the masternodes owners, or the miners, or the masternode owners that have more than 100, or the dash account holders, or those who can prove their individuality, or those who cannot e.t.c), then this will create clans and castes, and will cause a schism among community member types.
1. It's an apples and oranges comparison. Polls for MNs are likely to be more accurate, and
2. The OP of a poll could easily create a second thread / poll for end user participation.
Yes of course, the OP may create a separate thread/poll for another member type to answer the same question, but this is exactly how the castes and the clans are created. And this is bad for the Dash community as a whole, and may lead to a schism. And of course the OP cannot predict all possible member types, and this means that some information is lost.
Filtering the votes and having a single place where all the people can express their opinion, keeps the community united and preserves all information (regarding the specific poll question) in a single place.
I'm relying on you to make sure that doesn't happen. Every time I post a poll, you can do likewise for end-users.
@moocowmoo could you please elaborate and make a granular badge, so that we can distinguish the number of the masternodes someone has?
I mean, instead of having just one field with the masternode address, someone may add another field, and as many field as the masternodes he own. And then he get a badge related to the number of masternodes he has.
The code can be borrowed by the "add poll option" code. By the way is your xenforo hook plugin opensource? If it is I could make a try and code such a thing.
why would anybody in public post their MN holding ?
privacy 1st - this has nothing to do with u or anybody else - this is their private business !
