RE: The HiveSQL proposal needs your support

in HiveDevs3 months ago

Really wish you had thought ahead and did a slightly larger proposal above the absolute minimum so we can have a larger buffer than 24hrs (previously 0hrs) ... if you don't use that buffer (aka always funded) at some point and the service stops existing you can return the buffer funds. Sadly your proposal is for 700+ days or we'd suggest changing it next time you do a proposal for like 110 or 120 instead of 100. You could have put the extra in savings even and extended the buffer even longer with the savings interest.

Oh well one would have just expected with how heavily used your service is that it wouldn't have been in danger of loosing funding in the first place.


What makes you think I didn't think before making the proposal?

As for its price, I am for simple things and I favored a reasonable price.
As for its duration, campaigning to get a proposal funded is exhausting and not my favorite thing to do. That's why I made it for two years.

Oh well one would have just expected with how heavily used your service is that it wouldn't have been in danger of loosing funding in the first place.

Are you suggesting that I overrate the proposal to make sure it doesn't lose its funding? This is nonsense to me.

The infrastructure is dimensioned in such a way as to be able to support the current load and even more.
I cannot constantly resize it, then adapt the amount requested for the proposal, without negatively impacting the latter.

this feels like lost in translation :D

The idea form peakd was that when you put the proposal you could have gone with 10-20 HBD more per day and use that 10-20 in case of situations like this, where it happens that there is not enough funds in a day do distribute. So you could use those funds for some time, give it a bit more buffer time.
If you had 10 HBD more then needed from the start of the proposal you could now use that 10*days funded to go maybe even a month or two unfunded and free.
And in the end if you never use it you could just give it back or use it when this proposal has ended and the new one is not funded yet.

All this I understood. But I'm not a fan of convoluted solutions.
Maybe by dint of working in IT, its binary context rubbed off on me.

well it would be more convenient for people that use the service :D

some other proposal got more votes or did the Stabilizer kicked in with more funds needed?

The stabilizer was raised ~ one million HP yesterday

Yes @bil.prag you are correct he completely mistranslated or just willfully misunderstood the statement thinking we were trying to attack... we were trying to help. still not certain he understands the way this would help everyone mostly him.

Thanks for your help translating a bit.

felt a bit of that in the response and knowing you and Asgarth i know it was not.

as i was looking what was going on the thing he did made sense when he posted the proposal as Stabilizer was not a thing then, so you would not expect a lot of changes. Now that Stabilizer is used there is more chance to get kicked out because there is not enough daily funding even if you are above the limit. So it makes sense to ask a bit more so you get more "room", especially in a service like this.
