Witness vote proxying - is it still possible?

in #steemlast year

Constantly maintaining a list of 30 witnesses is a bit beyond what I have time and capacity for, so I've been using the "witness vote proxy" feature for a while. With the ongoing turmoil, I decided to have a look if my proxy was still active - half a year since his last post, so perhaps "no", time to refresh my proxy vote. But how to do it? I didn't find any box at steemit.com. I googled and found a steemconnect link, but it gave me some 404-error from Heruko. I installed the "Steem Keychain" chromium plugin, it allowed me to remove the proxy - but did not allow me to enter a new! SteemPeak also gave me the option to vote for witnesses, but not the possibility to enter a proxy.

So eventually I had to give some votes manually. I haven't paid much attention to the recent drama, and I have no idea about Tron. Perhaps good things can come from the aquisition ... and perhaps not. When looking at the witness list, things looks quite bad - some 20 (why not 30?) faceless witnesses with no information at all running the latest .5-version (and rumors have it this one is deemed harmful by the community), and all of them being at the top-50-list of witnesses ... and the rest of the witnesses running .1, .2 and .4444.

I believe the Steem project will be quite dead if the steemit.com site splits with the community.


Another place where you can easy select a proxy voting is steemworld.org

Yes ... nice to see steemworld still exists. I remember @steemchiller was complaining a bit the costs of keeping it online and in sync was too stiff.

Don't use Steemit anymore... It can be done with a SteemConnect URL, replace ACCOUNT with the desired name (without @). https://beta.steemconnect.com/sign/account-witness-proxy?proxy=ACCOUNT&approve=1

Seems like the steemconnect URL I found at google started with some version number instead of "beta", and was discontinued ... so this can be done through steemconnect, just the link I found that was wrong.

Thanks - the form is at the bottom of the witness voting page at steemit.com. I was somehow suspecting it to be at the top of the page.

I wonder if there is any possibility through steempeaks.com and the steem keychain plugin.
