The Majority Report

The Majority Report is a new Augur reporting explorer with a twist! In an attempt to formalize reporter jurisprudence, they have curated a group of precedents that have repeatedly deemed markets invalid.

In their own words:

As reporters continue to hone their (quite complicated) jurisprudence I felt that I needed a better reference for what their jurisprudence actually was. Traders, reporters, and market creators can all benefit from understanding a fickle group of REP holders.

The Forecast Foundation has no role in the operation of markets, trades or actions created or performed on the Augur protocol, nor does it have the ability to censor, restrict, control, modify, change, revoke, terminate or make any changes to markets created on the Augur protocol. The Forecast Foundation has no more control over the Augur protocol than anyone else using Ethereum.

Thus, we do not seek to advise others on how to use the protocol. We encourage those in the community that are well educated on Augur to pay it forward and share their ideas for best practices, tips, fixes and etc with the larger community via Twitter, Discord, Reddit, Github and other community channels.For more information regarding the role of the Forecast Foundation, checkout the FAQ.
