So I have been seeing all the calls to vote but I had to spend some time searching.

I was going around trying "masternode vote" and looking on the blog and announcement posts to see the command needed to vote. After digging around the help in the command line, I did find this

mnbudget "command"... ( "passphrase" )
Vote or show current budgets

Available commands:
prepare - Prepare proposal for network by signing and creating tx
submit - Submit proposal for network
vote-many - Vote on a Dash initiative
vote-alias - Vote on a Dash initiative
vote - Vote on a Dash initiative/budget
getvotes - Show current masternode budgets
getinfo - Show current masternode budgets
show - Show all budgets
projection - Show the projection of which proposals will be paid the next cycle
check - Scan proposals and remove invalid
nextblock - Get next superblock for budget system

Which does answer my question on 'how to vote' but then I couldn't find the transaction hashes until I dug around with the 'show' command.

May I suggest that with any proposal initiative it be mentioned on the blog, with a quick 'boilerplate' summary on how to vote? Not everyone follows the dashtalk forums.

This should include the exact commands needed to vote for a particular proposal so people can just cut and paste in.
for example:

Core Team Proposal
[Description]
To vote YES type in your wallet console the following
masternode vote eac6392cd0d63e4b2ebd3c60da2d3e13137c892cd4cd1a8f3885077ac86b7487 yes
To vote NO type in your wallet console the following
masternode vote eac6392cd0d63e4b2ebd3c60da2d3e13137c892cd4cd1a8f3885077ac86b7487 no

Eventually this of course should be simplified in a GUI form :D
