I'm a dolphin ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

in #dolphin โ€ข last year (edited)

Hello everyone,

I actually had a post for today, but I feel I need to make a proper dolphin post, to truly celebrate the occasion and thank my supporters today. Without many of these people, I'd most certainly not be where I am today. Yesterday's post was just a quick celebration and something before I went to sleep, whereas this one will probably be my best post in a while. Look at how many words I've put in the introduction ONLY, already!

This is definitely me when I'm on STEEM

Today is the day I get to make my happy noise. I've reached 10m VESTS (5054.884 SP as of the time of this post). But really, while I put the money in, starting at when STEEM was ยฃ0.34, down to now, ยฃ0.10 (yup, I've lost money like everybody else... at the moment), and I've put in more than I would have had to if I'd waited till now. I could be way richer than I am in STEEM if I were to wait, but I never thought STEEM would get down to these lows, that's why I bought at those prices. At least I can claim a loss for my tax return this year ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

While I can pat myself on the back and cry in the corner for wasting money, what's the point. I'm not usually as optimistic as I am here, but I truly believe in the future of STEEM, and I think the prices I got it at are way undervalued. I'm still happy with my purchases. Really, I've got to thank the people that have kept me here and allowed me to thrive.

So, without further ado, let's get into the list.

LTS (Long Term Support)


No thank you list will ever be complete without MermaidVampire. She is the reason I'm still here wasting my time (jk). She's an amazing person, and I'm just so super happy that she posted her introduceyourself post 3 minutes before me. When I published mine, It took me to New/IntroduceYourself, which had A Kidney for Karen and Everybody else who needs a Kidney. I mean, with a title like that, it took my interest, to say the least. I introduced myself in the comments section, and now we're best buds who chat on Discord (that took us like 3 months LOL). Karen is so inspirational. Like you're having a bad day? This belebens (Filipino) woman has to do dialysis and is just chugging along with the STEEM blockchain.

She is such a generous and kind soul, and when you need someone to talk to, she's great. Don't bother her though, she's my friend. jk. She even runs the @plankton.token and supports many redfish with it. Even before that, she's been running multiple games/contests where nobody loses daily, manually for over 200 days! Can you believe that? If you're there, she's there to help you.

Also, she doesn't stop there, she's stopped me from leaving the chain when I was little and helped me to drum up ideas for the chain. I really wouldn't be here today without her, and for that reason, she's my #1 steemian!

The Classic Gang (@olivia08,@jurich60,@benedict08,@zephalexia,@otom,@mers,@atongis,@ankarlie)

Although you don't get your own names here, one by one, I want to take the time to thank you all for upvoting and supporting me as one big team to reach this goal. Remember that time we all tried to use smoke.io? LOL ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘

IRL Friends

Although you didn't make it far, thanks for listening to me ramble about it, @skyspear.

Thanks for giving it a good go and helping with the software dev, @weedeck93


You're a doer for sure! You get stuff done and chill with us sometimes. Your initiatives are awesome and I thank you from all the small fries, that I was once part of. You're also an awesome guy to chat with. We even exploited some bugs together and then reported them! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ‰

Middle Ages / Now


Thank you for your support by using the Plankton Token as a prize in your contests.

@mcfarhat and @taskmaster4450

Thanks for all your support with the Plankton Token and our onboarding systems. We couldn't have done it without you!


Gerber is a big part of the reason that Steem Engine Tools exists, he gave me ideas as to what people wanted as he floats around only the finest of Steem Engine discord channels.


He's cool. I mean, he's a good laugh to hang around with, and he made me more comfortable with the STEEM chain, as he is rather public about who he is. He explained his reasoning and I realised why it's not so bad.


Thanks for helping me find the Steem Smart Contracts (STEEM Engine) documentation so I could make my tools. Took a bit of frigging, but I found the endpoints!


Contest host and ๐Ÿ˜Ž minnow in the Plankton Server. She is so kind, giving and awesome. So much so, that I didn't realise she had only just appeared on-chain and was still new to this whole thing. Truly inspirational stuff! Also, thanks for hosting Quiz Nights when @mermaidvampire was unavailable.


You're cool. Thanks for hanging around with us Planktons.


Thanks for putting up with me in your show. I know I can be a bit much sometimes. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜


Thanks for the upvotes, and for being in Scotland. Still, only 2 3 others that I know are up here, and one of em is a friend I invited. Even if we don't see eye-to-eye on IKEAโ„ข Brand Hotdogs, 70p is 70p.


Thanks for the REBlogs, they got my tools out there. It was a big help!


Thanks for stopping by, fellow brit. I'd love to deploy @litewallet if you'll come back. So please come back, I've thought of some more integrations for your LW.

Steem.Chatters (@soyrosa,@inertia,@r0nd0n,@whatsup):

Thanks for letting me invade your server and thanks for putting up with me. Very cool!


You smell You're pretty cool, thanks for being interested in my project, I look forward to working with you in the future!


Aight bud, you wanna be like this then? Ackza has helped me in the confusion and promotion of my Steem Engine Tools as well as writing about me too much, he comes up with tons of crazy and cool ideas, so check him out.

Everybody I missed

I'm sorry, there are so many people who have probably been missed out of this list. If I forgot you, it means you don't matter it's probably because I've met so many awesome people here. I have had to scrape pretty far into my mind to create this list.

To a prosperous STEEM year ahead! Cheers to all my fellow fishes! You're all truly awesome if you're sticking through the lows (and highs) of STEEM with me. I wish you all to reach your next SP milestone soon!

If anything in here is remotely financial advice, THIS IS NOT FINANCIAL ADVICE

Have a great day,
~ @cadawg

Sort: ย 

It's I could be way more rich. Also you can't claim a tax loss until you sell from realizing a loss. So you bought high and sold low? Not good!! flagged for grammatical errors and misinformation! lol


I guess you didn't bother to check my TXN history or the 3 laughing emojis


That was a JOKE! Who would have thought? Somebody making a joke on STEEM! How dare I!

I didnโ€™t check, ok sorry! I admit I was being mean, strict, & harsh! Maybe u did sell some, i suppose whenever i purchase a token on steem-engine iโ€™m selling low too, wow! I did buy some steem way up high, not much however I suppose I could claim that on my tax return too. Wow thanks! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค™๐Ÿค™
ps i didnโ€™t know the laughing emojis meant it was a joke. lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ‘€

I've not sold any. It was purely a joke LOL

Tax returns are a pain in the ass, for sure!

I didnโ€™t need to check because iโ€™m psychic, lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ or see i did guess it right! I didnโ€™t think u sold any or i would not have commented that! lol

ย last yearย (edited)

upvoted and resteemed

but aw come on man meesterboom and steemitqa get mentions but not me? lol meesterboom just posts "stories" I actually do serious work... lol dont tell him i said that i dont want him getting mad at me...

lol but he will learn to value me and realize we have to all stick together if we have this much seniority on steem or more importantly if we put in work .. and we all have in our own ways..... and he will realize bid bots have votes too... and if instead of buying votes they made a "donation" and still had to apply for manual curation, their payments just get them to the top of the list, well them people would realize that the compromise here is wanting to get bid bot owners to do manual curation. The right way to go about all of this would be to WARN the users of bid bots at least 3 times before downvoting them because we just arent mature enough as a species to NOT take it personally and why risk loosing all these great long time users who own bid bots? Just give them a path to semi manual curation once a week, dont force them to leave..... just give them a daily or bi weekly or weekly application system, so people APPLY for the paid upvote, and only let them issue a certain amount at a time, and only on the highest quality submissions. This gets rid of a LOT of teh shit posts but allows SERIOUS post to wait in line everyday and get a paid upvote. Instead of paying for upvotes just TAX them with beneficiary rewards and require they LOOK at who they upvote

Also we will end up with a black market where people pay for upvotes from accounts that arent listed as bid bots and which do plenty of manual curation.

or instead we can get bid bot owners a chance to basically not have their users flagged if they DELEGATE HALF the bid bot Steem Power to an elected Curator chosen by the community or by this Union of downvoters :) its like a labor union hah, or ive just been watching too much Star trek Deep Space 9, anyway and we just force these bourgiosie bid bot owners to carry on with business only if they delegate i dunno half SP to manual curators? I think thats fair balance.

anyway i am happy to resteem so you can get more recognition but lemme get on dat list yo ,i actually need as much publicity as i can get as theres a lot of negative anti ackza people out there who somehow dont know all the work ive done for steem that most normal people would never do, especially after all the abuse, i still stayed, and now im adding steem to scatter, the #1 most important thing for steem dapps right now. im just hoping i get more than a $4 upvote for it

Honestly when you find out about how im adding steem to scatter with teh wallet package @nsjames showed me, then youll see why and how im so excited and why its a no brainer when youre there and see it all, but you have to know about eos, and hah i know you do but youd be surprised how many morons there are out there who refuse to even LOOk at eos land as if its some sort of enemy of steem, people ACTUALLY bitter about a rivalry they were never a part of, as if they are friends with demand ned,lol its shameful the way other dolphins and whales who own steem act when it comes to their inability to give eos a chance. It can only help steem

Also @ned the freakin ex ceo of steemit inc is even telling major steem devs, one you would all recognize, to move to EOS LOl so think about that anyone who is anti eos on steem... nothing wrong with it... we will work well on eos also ... steemp is gonan be anEOS token on newdex so we can trade steemp steem engine token against eos

when i get scatter on steem i will be able to get newdex to add STEEM traded pairs for SMTs and steem engine tokens.

Man calm down. I said I forgot people, this is why. Ok?

Meesterboom found you btw

Congratulations ๐Ÿพ


Thanks for the mention and the very kind words. You my friend, are a gentleman and a scholar.(maybe more scholar then gentleman๐Ÿ˜) But seriously,thank you for all you do to help around the community and for all you do you help a guy like me with everything digital...I'd be lost without you at times. And i look forward to many years ahead in this wonderful place with you here as well. Cheers brother! And congrats on dolphinhood!!!

Thanks for your kind words.
