Community members are requesting an alert system for their points of interest. Do we need an alert system? How should it work?
Currently, cartographers have two choices to ensure they do not lose FOAM tokens without the opportunity to defend a challenged point:
- Visit the FOAM Map at least once every 5 days to see if any of their points have been challenged.
- Remove verified points from the map (and have their stake returned).
The second outcome will weaken the map but is a logical decision for individuals who cannot meet the demands of regularly checking the map.
I have made a simple solution that runs a daily query of watched points against all new challenges. If there is a match because one of the watched points was challenged, it sends the owner an email alert. This starting point has some disadvantages but might lead us to something greater. Appreciate any input.
