Today i want to talk about scale voting weight in curation trail.
When you join the curation trail you have an option to set your voting percentage as scale or fixed weight
when you set it as fixed, irrespective of what the curation owner has set, your weight will always be taken.
i.e if you set it to 50%, your vote will be 50%
when you set it to scaled, it is based on what the curation owner has set.
so if you set it to 50% and your curation owner sets it to 25%
then your upvote will be only 12.5%
( it means that my vote will be 50% of what the curation owner votes)
Now, that is all fine. Everyone is aware of it.
But the problem starts when the curation owner reduces the percentage, for example from 25% to 20%
since you are voting 50%, your vote will drop down from 12.5% to 10%
This is not good, as your upvote value has gone down or zero. That is waste of voting power.
So, i would urge the people following the curation trail to check whether the voting weight is appropriate and whether it is providing a good value to you and to the person you are voting.
Zero upvote is not good to you or the person you are upvoting.
I would also request the curation trail owners, to notify the followers when they change the voting percentages.
To get more details on how much you are curating, you can check the stats on hivestats.io. Its very informative.
