It's been over 24 hours since @ginabot has been down, and I realized a few things during that time. Just going to talk about them in this post.
Not bashing @neander-squirrel at all, he's developed one of the greatest tools thats most widely used for steemians and lets other use it without charging at all. I know that I'd certainly pay to have her.
How did I live before Gina?
This is the longest that Gina has ever been down, and this is like going back to the dark ages. I've gotta manually look for replies on my other accounts and can't see posts that I'm tagged in easily. Gina was HIGHLY customizable and I definitely used that. I also used her to tell when my autovotes were cast(steemauto/smartsteem when at a high vote %).
Other notification tools aren't as great.
They do. There's no multi-account tracking, they are slower than Gina, don't have the post payout notification, and aren't on mobile(excluding partiko). Gina is just better in all ways. Plus she's right on discord so I don't need to download anything that I otherwise wouldn't have on my phone to use her. I know that theres a mobile one by @blockbrothers that I haven't tried out yet, so can't comment on that though.
Other are reliant on Gina too.
Go to the minnow-power discord and you'll see a lot of people asking where Gina's one. Check out this from little discussion on the @steembasicincome discord:
@josephsavage 11 SBI accounts? I thought I had too many until I talked with some more people in the SBI discord. I've barely got anything. But then again, I'm probably above the median(mean would be bad here with people with thousands of accounts).
So @ginabot please come back, I'm too reliant on you.
