I already mentioned i am aware of other ways to vote. A bit pointless to then mention those other ways to vote.
I simply prefer to vote and do budget proposal discussions in one place and not be forced to do them across two places.
I already asked DCG in the past to keep communication to Dash Central open about v19 activation / Evo Nodes and provide support to rango.
Obviously that did not happen or they would have warned him to update Dash Central to v19.2
What i feared would happen during the HPMN discussions, just happened (Dash Central forked off and is most likely at this moment not supporting Evo Nodes with regards to 4x voting).
This could have been avoided entirely if DCG kept an open line with Dash Central / rango, as it is also in their interest to keep disruptions to the Dash Governance system to a minimum.
And yes, this is indeed discouraging me to update my masternodes to an Evo Node at this time.
We will just have to see how many MNO's feel discouraged by this as well (or even feel financially motivated to update to an Evo Node right now).
Why should it fall upon DCG to write a special invitation to third parties like DC? After all, we upgraded as required simply by checking in on the project once every couple of months, is that too much to ask when your business literally relies on the Dash network? I'm sorry, but there is no excuse for lazy operators like Rango and miners that don't bother to upgrade and Masternodes that do the same. We should encourage decentralisation and yet here you are doing the very opposite!
