DiscoSteem Bot This is a Discord/Steem bot project by @planetenamek. When I started Steemulant Bot for the Vietnamese community, I didn't know the existence of DiscoSteem Bot and wanted something written in NodeJS. I've ended up continuing my own project as it contains code and logic for personal use and for the Vietnamese community. But I've decided to share some useful features that can benefit the users of DiscoSteem Bot and will continue to add more functionalities as I go. Dockerizing DiscoSteem Bot

I have always wondered why steemit shows so many inactive witnesses in the top 100.
Steemian.info does the same but shows enough information to to make a decision.

Do you know why the skip feature was disabled?

At least they are now showing 100, it used to be only 50...
What skip feature are you talking about?

This:

'The blockchain used to have a rule that automatically skip inactive witnesses that are still registered after 24 hours of inactivity'

Sure, 24 hours might be a bit harsh. Especially since replaying or trouble shooting can take a long time. But after a month of inactivity we could probably consider a witness out of service.

Ahhh. I can’t remember exactly but it has to do with security for the network

Wow so many inactive witnesses! Why doesn't steemit or whoever just remove them from the list (which is pretty rubbish and doesn't really tell you anything).

And only the top hundred as well, there needs to be an extended list beyond that like you've done to the top 300. Where did you get info on the top 300?

@quochuy Thank you for this and I have resteemed.
I will check the list and unvote any of my witnesses if they appear on this list.
I think that this post could help a lot of others.
Oh! And of course I will keep you as a witness hahaha
Blessings!

Sad thing is... many who may have voted for these absent witnesses are no longer active on the platform; so those votes won't change or lower an inactive witness.

That is true.
However, most of those inactive accounts also have relatively low SP which means their vote won’t influence that much. What is sadder is the potential users who have more of SP and are still active but won’t take time to change their votes. Might be interesting to run some stats on this actually.

The blockchain used to have a rule that automatically skip inactive witnesses that are still registered after 24 hours of inactivity.

Great, useful rule, which should get reactivated again!
Maybe a time frame of 24 hours is too short though.

Yea they need to review that or maybe find a better way to manage the whole thing with vote expiry or request to review votes every year or something

This was a great reminder! I still voted for a witness which is a zombie now after HF21/HF22 and high in the rankings. Resteemed.
