Indexers rarely allow their allocations to run past the 28 epoch limit, but multiple reputable indexers have recently experienced this. Skilled delegators can close those allocations themselves, but the process is overly technical for the vast majority of delegators. All rewards from the allocation are burned when closed by the delegator.
The Graphtronauts app has an advanced feature in beta that would enable delegators to close allocations with a couple clicks, making the mechanism accessible to the common delegator.
However, there are multiple factors to consider. Can inexperienced delegators be trusted with this “new” option? How would this impact indexers who are experiencing long syncing times?
