RE: Some ideas for future POB Delegations from @proofofbrainio
It's not a bad suggestion by any means, but I can see a potential issue that could cause problems.
Members of the community are selected (three) to be in charge of this account and have access to the posting key to upvote content
This could open up a door to potential abuse with no way to hold any specific person accountable. The countermeasure is then changing keys or removing delegation completely which are both not ideal options.
Opening the door for abuse could also be tempting since I don't believe one 100% upvote per week is sufficient per person for the time and effort it takes to do quality manual curation, especially with no personal rewards being received from said curation (curating is a huge responsibility with a larger stake and it's the cog in the machine that makes POB what it is).
I understand that the point above is dependant on the stake size of the account and a 100% upvote will vary, I just know personally that manual curation isn't all smooth sailing and can eat into your time quite easily.
I think this idea is on the right track although I believe that individual accountability is the most important factor when delegations are assigned.
Maybe I'm biased because I'm sitting here with a 5,000 POB delegation, but I know first hand that my behaviors are clear for all to see and if I abuse the power I've been given with this delegation I fully expect it to be taken away. That is the level of accountability that can be precisely pinned on me alone.
I encourage people to follow my voting habits and transfer activity via https://hivestats.io/@calumam and call me out if there is anything that is alarming. I also have a post here which lays out more information regarding my efforts here on the platform.
