Steemit not allowing sign ups since Justin Sun Hostile Takeover

UPDATE: 2020-03-11 Steemit have restarted the signup process. I applied for an account today, I'll report when I get notified it is available.

I signed up via the Steemit interface for a new account just to test the procedure a few days after the Tron @justinsunsteemit deal but before the forking and the Sybil attack and #SteemHostileTakeOver

The system is no longer working and any attempt to create a free account via fails because it won't let you pick a username.

Lol why would you want to let more people join the army against you? At least we as the community can still issue out accounts!

LOL !! you are very smart my brother

If anyone desperately needs an account created, use account creation tokens and generate keys. Almost anyone can if you've been claiming account creation tokens with your powered up steem since that feature was added to our blockchain quite some time ago.

Fair to say that steemit and are the main onboarding tools, but there's so many other ways to generate an account.

is that an API issue? because the follow_api/condenser_api get_feed function is also not currently working and most steem frontends are suffering from it. not sure what work around esteem and steempeak used which have a functioning feed.

I think they use @anyx's API. Luckily we don't rely completely on Steemit anymore.

i am not getting the feed function to work on any steem API :/ try your self in terminal with the command

curl -s --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method":"follow_api.get_feed", "params":["maxsieg",1,10], "id":1}'

curl -s --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method":"condenser_api.get_feed", "params":["maxsieg",1,10], "id":1}'

while it works well for the get_blog function

curl -s --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method":"condenser_api.get_blog", "params":["maxsieg",0,1], "id":1}'

Sorry, I know barely more about this than @justinsunsteemit. Try asking an app developer or witness.

I just looked at the proposals, and it looks like @steempeak partly uses their own infrastructure.

This is disgraceful.

I propose someone make a post with alternative sign up points and tags steem. The benfits can be going dao or whatever to encourage steem developmens.

And we can help to ensure it stays on top of trending.

New users don't need to be involved in this drama.

damn they're killing the platform. The communities were encouraging people to join us but what did they do? How about the other dapp in signing up? Is it available?

Steem was hacked by malicious hackers that froze my legally purchased STEEM token that i paid with my own hard earned money. They probably forked the onboarding out of the blockchain. Hey @royliusteem. Remind me to tweet some nonsense about this in a couple of hours.
