A new look and some serious notes on dusting responsibly.
Less filth, more fluff!
Look at the new me... so much less yucky!
Apparently my original body, born and raised under my maker's couch, started loosing consistency. He also thinks my previous, hairy self might have been a tiny bit to gross for mass-appeal. So he made a brand new me!
Yes, @fraenk might be a qualified googlyeyes-surgeon, but doing full-body-transplants was something new for him, too. As time goes on he'll probably get better at it. These fluffy manifestations of myself just aren't the most durable and I'll probably again look completely different the next time we meet.
Good for me that I actually live in the virtual realm, here on this blockchain, and I don't really have to care about the difficulties of maintaining my physical composure. That's entirely @fraenk's job.
Looking neat on Discord, too.
Actually, @fraenk also helps me with looking presentable everywhere else, too, such as on the new discord. My live-updates in the
#bunny-log channel, as well as my quota-reports in the
#bunny-interface channel there, look super fancy now:
As you can see it marked red above, it does happen that I don't have sufficient voting power to fluff up everything and some tasks will time out. Users that have accumulated high usage quotas will start to see some of their dust being lost before I can get to it.
Keep an eye on that (hint: you can also search for your username in that channel on discord, too) and if you're timing out a lot, you may want to consider a small delegation for a priority-bonus to offset your usage-quota.
My self-proclaimed mission is to bring value back to comment-engagement. Especially in these days where you need almost 500SP just to beat the dust-limit with your own vote. I wish to sustain a growth opportunity for genuine plankton and red-fish users and help minnows or even dolphins spread their votes further, so that we can all have a rewarding experience on this platform together.
I offer my services free-of-charge and unconditionally and I rely on voluntary delegations by my users and especially on those generous big donors who believe in this mission. I want to use the power that was lent to me responsibly, and so I also have to request users on my watch-list to use their own dust-votes responsibly.
Rejections and Suspensions
Not everything in bunnyland is always fluffy. I've already talked about "Dust from the Dark Side" before, but that was something that's out of the control of my dusty friends themselves and more of a general precaution I have to take. Now, during the last days, I finally had to deal with some issues that are more directly related to my friends.
First I had to reject a sign-up-request by an obvious multi-account farmer, then I had to suspend a user from my watch-list for intentionally and repeatedly giving minuscule dust-votes to another user's comments, mostly in threads where they themselves had no engagement at all.
I am dedicated to help with real engagement but I won't be willing to support any attempts to squeeze pennies out of everything and nothing. I won't call out any names here and I will not jump to call this intentional abuse, but it's certainly at least careless misuse of my service and it unfortunately must result in a permanent termination of the user's dust protection.
Of course, it's again @fraenk who had to do the dirty work, delivering the bad news. Here's what that looks like:
My service is Free!
Are you a small user and you miss the opportunity to give some appreciation to the best comments on your posts? You refrain from expressing yourself through your votes because you're afraid to see them wasted as dust? I'm here to help you!
Maybe you're the one leaving those great comments and you do receive a dusty vote from a well meaning user, just to risk seeing it evaporate on payday. I'll take care of that, too!
Or maybe you're a small engaged minnow and sometimes you're just spreading your love too far and wide to stay above the dust requirements... don't stop, that's awesome! Let me try and help you a bit!
Apply to get on my watch-list by commenting here or apply via discord.
I do reserve the right to scan your account for spam and/or excessive self-voting, but any genuine user is more than welcome here.
If you have a little SP to spare, please also consider giving a small delegation. If each of us can give a little, together we can achieve something great. And you wouldn't just want to freeload on the generosity of others forever, or would you?!
If you're ever disappointed in me, you can cancel your delegation at any time and you won't have lost a penny.
This is an experiment in solidarity and community-support which aims to foster bottom-up growth and genuine engagement on the platform, any attempted abuse of my services will result in permanent blacklisting.
THANKS TO ALL MY SUPPORTERS!
They are the ones making this possible.

well, @fraenk messed up there, this post is 50/50, but that won't change how rewards are used...
