    Change of efficiency

    TFA is reducing efficiency by 10%. This change is to help compensate for the declining token price so we can continue hosting important services for the ecosystem (see our previous update for a comprehensive list), as well as continue to develop our Factom based IOT-SAS solution.

    Doc 005 - ANO Election and Demotion System - Change required

    As long as the batch update process specifically specifies that the ratification is nullified if the suggestions were not mentioned during the voting process my take is that the ratified documents stand. The standing parties are not excused from reading the actual documents when voting, and if...

    Stepping down as Factom Guide

    I have decided to step down as Factom guide effectively immediately. These past years I have tried to the best of my ability to improve the protocol and governance, and at times the work has been very rewarding. I have made a lot of new friends in the community (and I appreciate those friends...

    Vote Tor Paulsen Removed Standing for BI Foundation

    Standing is not necessarily a combination of factors. In fact each standing party may use what criteria they like to extend standing one of my "dealbreakers" is 30% efficiency or lower. It is also not the only one as evident by all the standing I extended to other parties today, with reasons...

    Thats your prerogative.

    Factomize has lowered its efficiency to 0%

    I would trust Factomize to operate at 0% efficiency, as I know David very well and their track record is stellar. This is a principle decision because I do not believe our current system is able to properly assess how well low-efficiency ANOs are operating (just look at all the discontent we've...

    Vote Tor Paulsen Gave Standing for Factomize

    After I removed standing you still had 81% left; well above the 40% cutoff. Putting your decision of firing your dev on me is not exactly fair is it?

    I think we can agree on not agreeing and leave it at that. I'm looking forward to your future updates.

    Removing one node from the authset in May

    Do I understand correctly that BIF will only be supplying 1 authority node going forward?

    Vote Tor Paulsen Removed Standing for BI Foundation

    I don't understand why you refer to it as a weapon. It's not. The ANO Standing System is designed to allow the Factom Standing Parties to support or not support an ANO based on metrics of their own choosing. BIF is not meeting the minimum of one of my core metrics (updates via the appropriate...

    Vote Tor Paulsen Removed Standing for BI Foundation

    Keep in mind that standing can easily be reinstated and I even wrote that I would in my explanation for removing standing. We need some minimum standards for reporting from ANOs even if they are the "rockstars of the community", and a short and sweet update that "things are progressing well...

    Vote Tor Paulsen Removed Standing for Kompendium

    I would just like to mention that I have seen what you are proposing demonstrated this week by a community member. I believe they will release it to the community as an open source tool soon.

    ANO Standing System Feedback and Questions

    This is a weird one @David Chapman and @Fillip H.: Refresh of the page did not help though. All the others ANOs looks perfectly fine. May be browser side? I'm on the latest version of Safari.

    Vote Tor Paulsen Removed Standing for BI Foundation

    I expect every ANO to use the appropriate channels to provide updates to the Standing parties. This would not have been an issue if BIF did not abstain from providing an update the past 304 days. Also please take note of the following section in my explanation: The standing system is meant to...
