Cool congratulations to all. And how many more will be chosen this quarter?

Currently we have 10 community collators, will try to get 20 if there are enough runners that passes the technical requirement.

there was a small glitch with the onboarding caused by one of the collator free account balances in the batch falling below the required 400,000 kma. A collator applicant account participated in a democracy vote with a vote value that used some or all of their bond amount, which locked the collator account balance whilst the collatorselection(NewDesiredCandidates) extrinsic was being processed. this means that only the pithecus account was actually onboarded in that particular batch call. don’t worry. we’ll get it sorted out in the coming hours and try to get the other 3 accounts onboarded shortly. i’ve submitted a pr to add a caution about this in our collator docs.
