@firepower, Yes, for sure Witness System is Backbone of the Steem Blockchain and that's why it's really important to educate new users for that.
And new users should understand that, if they vote for an witness it can push their Witness Position and that is really vital aspect because if the position of particular witness go up then for sure their influence increases in Steem Economy.
And unfortunately i missed to vote you but now I've done it. And i hope and wish that, for sure your position will move towards top and you will gain more positive influence in Steem Economy.
And good to see this post because, sometimes we see some Technical issues but for sure if we get guidance then that showcase that in Steem Economy we have some effective Tutors.
Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂
