Hello,

I appreciated all the feedback I received for my Dash Budget Proposal Tracker (http://ericsammons.com/dash-budget). Based on the feedback, as well as a few other ideas of my own, I have made a number of improvements:
  1. I have moved the Tracker to http://dashvotetracker.com. I thought it would give it a more professional feel when directing people to it, and also it doesn't need to be associated with one person. I set up a redirect at the old site, but if you bookmarked it, you might want to change your bookmarks.
  2. I've made a number of design changes to make the interface more clean and readable. I make no claims to be a designer, but hopefully it's better now.
  3. I added a "Historical Graph" for each vote. This tracks a vote over time to see how it has fared up to now and lays it out in a line graph. Note that I didn't start tracking until 2/3/2016, so any data before that isn't graphed. I'm not sure how vital this information is, but I thought it was cool to have.
  4. I've added the total available budget, time until the cycle ends, and how much is allocated currently to the top of the screen.
  5. I've edited the explanation of the conditions for a proposal to be approved, as best as I understand it. If I have anything inaccurate, let me know.
  6. I added a "Payment #" column, which reflects which payment out of how many total a proposal is on. For example, currently the Core Dev Salary proposal is on their 7th out of 100 payments (7/10).
  7. I renamed "Total Votes" to "Net Votes," which I think is a more accurate description of the field (it is "Yes" votes minus "No" votes).
  8. I added some social media sharing buttons for easy sharing.
  9. I put my donation link up top to make it more noticeable. :) I would of course appreciate any donations, but I recommend first donating to dashwhale.org, where I get my data from.
As always, I'm open to any suggestions or feedback from the community. As we saw with last month's budget, we are still learning this process, so there is always room for improvements.

NOW THAT IS PERFECT!!!!

It not only shows the data but it makes it easy to explain WHY you need more votes than the next proposal....

This is really awesome!

Now with these historical graphs we can see better if it many people vote with few masternodes or few people vote with many masternodes (aka DashWhales) :D

Very very nice!

My only suggestion is to add a column with net votes/total masternodes as a percentage as this is the number that is compared to the 10% threshold (as you correctly explain in the notes at the bottom.)

I think this number would be useful because at a glance you would know where a proposal is relative to the threshold without having to look up the current masternode count.

Okay, done!

http://dashvotetracker.com/ does not report any proposal right now.

Maybe it is due to the 12.1 upgrade.

but https://www.dashninja.pl/budgets.html works.
The 12.1 Governance started, https://www.dashninja.pl/governance.html and new proposals arrive.

But http://dashvotetracker.com/ is still out of order. :(

Partially out of order, because if you go there http://dashvotetracker.com/past.html and sort the proposals, the latest proposals appear in a strange blue color!

ex. http://dashvotetracker.com/history.html?ProposalID=204 ;)

<vote history> <-- why vote history is usefull?

Hey @ericsammons, I have few requests :rolleyes:

1. mn count seems to be quite off - "The total number of Masternodes is 5186.", not sure where this number comes from. Also I see lot's of 9%+ proposals in green zone which is confusing but.. makes sense because they actually have 470+ votes which is 10%+ for the actual mn count ;)
2. could you pls add smth like "The number of proposals (passing/total): 21/37" to the stats on the top of the page?

Thanks :)

1. I'm grabbing the MN count from DashNinja's API, which seems to be off. I've reached out to figure out why that is.
2. Great idea! I'll try to get on that soon.

Are you kidding me?
Then why dont you mention DashNinja?
At the end of the dashvotetracker front page it is only written:
"Data courtesy of the Dashcentral.org API"

I think @elbereth wont be happy about this.

Dashnijna currently reports 4731 masternodes. @UdjinM6, I suspect that something strange happens here...
