Inactive and outdated Witnesses

27일 전

When I was still below the Top100 rank, it was quite depressing for me to see that my low ranking preventing me from appearing in the official witnesses page was partly due to the fact that Steemians were still casting votes for witnesses who are inactive.

Goal

Now that I have gone up to the Top80, the horizon looks much nicer. However, new witnesses are still struggling to let the world know they do exist, hence this post to get people to review their witness votes regularly.

The blockchain used to have a rule that automatically skip inactive witnesses that are still registered after 24 hours of inactivity. That meant that you could just turn off your witness and the blockchain would just ignore you after 24 hours. However, this logic has been recently removed and inactive witnesses who have not un-registered are still schedule for block production but will miss the block. The higher their ranking is, the more frequently they are scheduled and the more blocks will be missed slowing down the network.

List of inactive witnesses in the Top200

So, just to raise awareness, here is the list of un-registered witnesses and their ranking. I've only listed un-registered witnesses that have a ranking higher than the last active witness. Also, to make it clearer, I'm considering four types of inactive witnesses:

  • The zombie witnesses who have just switched off their server without un-registering from the blockchain.
  • The un-registered witnesses who have broadcasted a witness_update command to the blockchain.
  • Active witnesses having not updated their server yet. They are still registered with the blockchain but are running a deprecated version of it and hence are missing blocks. They might be unable to do so at the current time and will come back to it soon.
  • The recently inactive witnesses. I've listed them in order to stress out that it is normal for a witness to be disabled from time to time for maintenance or upgrade. And in this time of HF21/22, many witnesses are still replaying or tweaking their setup.

Zombie Witnesses

The witnesses listed below are still registered with the blockchain and are still scheduled to sign block. Some of them might have stopped operating their witness server, some of them might still have it running but with an obsolete version of the blockchain. If you are/were operating these witnesses, please use cli_wallet or other tool to send a witness_update command to disable your key. If you vote for one or more of them, please review your vote.

Active witnesses having not yet updated their server

The following witnesses have not updated their server to use the latest version of the blockchain. Because of the move from HF20 to HF21/22, they are now missing blocks. HF21/22 happened recently, some witnesses might be away and don't yet have access to their servers. Hopefully, they will update soon.

None this months, except those from the Zombie list

Recently inactive witnesses

Reminder:
It is totally acceptable for witnesses to disable their operation for maintenance work. The witnesses listed below are probably performing server update in order to update or apply the multiple fixes related to HF21 and HF22. Unless you have good reasons to do so, you do not need to unvote the following witnesses.

  • #76 @klye is using v0.22.0. Became inactive 8 days ago, might still be updating their server.
  • #131 @chbartist is using v0.22.1. Became inactive 11 days ago, might still be updating their server.
