Display more than 100 witnesses on the witness page

Currently only displays the top100 witnesses with a text box that allows you to vote for low ranking witnesses, provided that you know about them. As I was working on some bug on the witnesses page, I noticed that the API allowed me to fetch more than 100 witnesses so I went on and increased the number of witnesses from 100 to 200 which is enough to cover all of our current active witnesses.

Increasing the number of witnesses from 100 to 200 also means that we have a lot of disabled/retired witnesses polluting the list. So in order to keep it clean, I've added a rule that filter disabled/retired witnesses off the list if their rank is greater than 100.

As a result of this, provided that the code change is approved, the following lower ranked witnesses will appear on the official witness page:
Rank 101: @mintrawa
Rank 103: @reazuliqbal
Rank 105: @fernandosoder
Rank 106: @jamzed
Rank 107: @dmitrydao
Rank 111: @lapingvino
Rank 117: @lootkit.witness
Rank 118: @hagie
Rank 129: @veteranforcrypto
Rank 130: @dpoll.witness
Rank 134: @elindos
Rank 142: @apshamilton
Rank 151: @whiterosecoffee
Rank 193: @pcste

Merge request:

Display witness owners on the witnesses page

Some users have chosen to have an alternate user accounts for their witnesses to separate regular social activities from witness activities. Some witness accounts were created and managed by more than one user. This code change now display the owner(s) of a witness account.

Display Hive witness owners

Merge request:

Delegating Hive Power to another user from your wallet

This change was implemented several months ago but I forgot to announce it although it was announced in one of @blocktrades (Witness) posts. You now can access your wallet and delegate some HP from the drop down menu from your Hive Power.

Wallet delegate Hive Power

A list of your current delegatees is also available in your wallet:
Your delegatees

If memory serves, this code was created on the Steemit Condenser and I've just ported it for Hive.

Great work!
It will be nice to be visible on the Hive.Blog witnesses page.

Hopefully it will get out soon

Thanks for all the condenser work. I don't use it😅(PeakD all the way) but having a good experience on the major frontends is very important. 4

Thanks for giving us more visibility 😊

I didn't know that you could add an owner for a witness account, how to proceed to do this? (I would like add my account @french-tech as owner)

It's not yet out for Hive Blog but you can set it on Peakd:, click on the Action button and Edit profile

Thanks for the information, I logged on Peakd with my mintrawa account and opened Edit profile but I didn't see a field corresponding to witness_owner 😢

I'll wait until it's out or maybe I'll try it myself when I have time (if I just need to add the witness_owner field to the json metadata)

Else try on my test server:

Thanks for the link, it worked as expected 👍

I will ask on the discord of Peakd because my Edit Profile miss Witness Description and Witness Owner

I think it's a problem because my profile didn't have the 2 fields before, now that I used your link and updated when I open Edit Profile the 2 fields appear.
