looks fine

I fully support what other members are saying. @GRom81 has a very large stock of knowledge, and successfully applies them in practice. He will undoubtedly be useful in the project.


Very well known person in validator’s club :slight_smile: Voting in favor!

good candidate for validators. my support!

Got me vote! A very good app.

Again the same situation. Unfinished and supported by the same people.


Because he had a previous application, it is oke.
But I don’t like that the only information he is telling is: to earn xx coins.
No answers with the additional questions. If you are serious with a project why doesn’t somebody take a little effort to give his/her view??

Yeah they should all be disqualified. They just want nodes and will likely meet the minimum threshold for uptime.

I do not trust a node that only wants coins and can not even finish a short questionnaire, especially when it is a small group spamming the apps. Should all be banned

Thank you guys for the kind words. I’m glad to see you all here.
@Robbie84 Getting XX coins is not the only reason I have indicated. And at least I was honest and do not hide it
@Junius I missed the answers to OPTIONAL questions. And you propose to ban for this ?. In this case, these will become MANDATORY questions. And this is contrary to what is indicated in the questionnaire.

Good morning grom81,
That’s also good to be honest about the fact of wanting to earn the XX coins.
It’s just about the fact mentioned before. But it’s good to leave those questions optional. Everybody can see then if someone wants to take the time for it to fill out.

You copied a portion of an answer which has been spammed by the same regionally based group of people.

You do not have to answer the questions and conversely, the community does not need to accept you or your friends that all skipped the same questions and copied each other’s answers. No hard feelings
