    If you add the below snippet in the config.ini file in the appropriate place (see comment for guide) it will assist your node in being on the correct fork.
    Code:
    # Pairs of [BLOCK_NUM,BLOCK_ID] that should be enforced as checkpoints.
    # checkpoint =
    checkpoint = [199733, "00030c35561d2e68499ee948ba73f65558a25426"]
    checkpoint = [199740, "00030c3c7ae7f72df4e5853f11bf38961c836377"]
    checkpoint = [199766, "00030c5619888a942e3de734a44e212356f0a2ad"]

    It's mostly important to have checkpoints around hard forks so people make the jump successfully when resyncing.

    Was there a hardfork already?

    No, because of the fast block time, users may end up on a stale chain.

    what's your id? since the distribution has started, the voting may have been changed. people now have different voting powers because of the movement of the XMS coins.

    Thats not only you. The most early folks are out.
    Join the "Moonstone club" by Joseph, if you wish.
    Ask them vote for you. Maybe they will do, maybe not. Not sure of their criteria., but looks like steem folks started to create gangs.
    Political games have started here unfortunately :(. Hate the politics, thats the most unproductive and useless thing in the world :mad:

    But all this is off-topic in this tread, so I wont mind if mods delete this :)

    Yeah, i turned off my vps few hours a go. I can turn it on again but as you said, if this become so gangs-able i don't know whether i still have a chance or not as i don't really like that kind of games also :(
    Wish to play honest with all i've got.
    Have a great day folks.

    Lets see how it goes...
    In fact, this is not about playing honest. People playing politics can also be honest (not in real world of course :D, but at least here it is possible). It would be ideal to support about the ones who are the most effective for the development, who can offer the best hardware to the project, or who has proven to be trustworthy. Politics though is typically about supporting only the ones whom you believe to make your own personal positions stronger, regardless of anything else and regardless of their objective value to the project - and this is what I personally dislike about politics and politicians.
    It is early to make any conclusions yet... Finally it may happen that the ones who organize groups now and push everyone else out, would be in fact the ones who are the most useful for the project.
    In fact, I am actually not sure I personally would be good enough as a witness. Not sure how it is for you, but when it comes to me, my real-life job could take a lot of my time, so I cannot guarantee I will follow all I need to follow... So probably everything is ok, the ones who got time and passion will get what they deserve :)
