Was this a mistake? 30 steem to get back less vote?...we all lost on this bot (:

·

its a huge mistake unless the intention is to lose money on here. you were not there so didn't lose money..but blind bidding on bots can make everyone lose as @instagramsteem just proved. I can afford to lose $8 dollars but it costs steemit money because thats less sp going into the system. Be careful people, there are newbie's on here that don't have the money to lose, I have made this mistake once before and sent everyone the amount of money I cost them with my mistake. I think this is a good practice to do so we don't scare away new people. @instagramsteem didn't know I am sure. He is new and invested some money and it's not a good investment if you throw half of it away. Please learn steembottracker.com
before bidding big numbers.

I wrote masterbot, hoping we get at least some credit, here is my message:

i think there was a mistake by @instagramsteem placing a huge upvote for your bot so we all lost. I don't see why someone would buy a huge upvote when they lose out so i figure is a mistake...is there a way to get a somewhat better upvote for us?
Here is the screen shot details @masterbot for the bidding round

you can see in the pending rewards it's not good, if you toggle the "include 25 curation" off you end up seeing what's closer to the pending rewards reality
@instagramsteem paid 30 steem for 11.79 sbd and 3.4 sp
30 steem is worth $102--11.79 sbd is worth $46---3.4sp valued at the steem price is $11---so trading $102 for $57 doesn't seem like a great investment. Tell me what you think about this?

lol, yup no reason to lose money like that...in the past i wrote to voting bots with any issues i had and usually they help, Just wondering if masterbot will reach out and give us his 2 cents on this...if able to help out will keep this bot in mind for future upvotes just for helping us out on this upvote

in a perfect world that would be great, but its pretty easy to avoid if everyone uses the tools, there will be new people that are anxious and excited who get lucky and think luck will always work. Even using the tools luck is still involved in the fact others aren't even using the tools. If i cost people money I will pay them losses if they are new.

Thanks for reaching out to us. About this issue "instagramsteem" has been put to warning list and if you see this type of aggressive bidding again you can contact me on discord (Umais). About the money I can't do anything because all the money is divided among the delegators and If I will take out money it will interrupt system which will obviously be bad for the bot. If you have any other inquiry reply below

I am pretty sure instagramsteem had no idea what he was doing, not many people on this earth lose money on purpose ...there is a huge learning curve here. Research before you act, I am happy to answer what I can if you need help. Lets see if your cries for help accomplish anything, I don't think It can hurt but some of the best lessons are learned the hard way.

you just cost everyone and yourself money ... 30 steem bid and you get 15 back ....why? please refer to steembottracker.com and you can check the suggested bid and details to try and not do this again.
