The foundation. Changes to the foundations. Even better, a new foundation. People are doing things now for personal projects or business/profit incentive. Something which I had being saying as soon as I joined the platform. If it is to succeed it needed that outlets for use of the Crypto.

Maybe we could fund the changes or new foundations needed to make bigger changes.

What do you mean exactly by "foundation"?

For veterans, maybe a bot that automatically upvoted ALL vets instead of just a few. One that has no additional hoops to jump through besides being a vet.

·

We can do that if we can get the SP. My witness can make about 200 a month so we'll have a bit of a wait to get this rolling out unless I get whales supporting it, which you and I both know isn't happening.

Just ask people to delegate SP to you for something like "Project Saving Heroes" or something else you come up with. If you're going to start doing that I'll delegate you some power.

Not all of the veterans are minnows, so I wouldn't feel right accepting your delegation when you yourself aren't making much. What I'm thinking now though is a bot that waits to upvote a bit to see if the post got traction on its own and then upvotes at different levels.

A lot of veterans have disabilities and the CryptoDeaf project is literally about assisting those with disabilities, including PTSD, Depression, blindness, deafness, amputation, cerebral palsy, cancer, etc. So while I don't have a heck of a lot myself, I would still delegate to a project like that.

Is there anything I can do for your project in the meantime?

Just resteem something if you want to help the project. My main goal is spreading awareness about deafness and answer hearies questions they may have about how I deal with things in a noisy world, so all I have to do is write for that. Anything and everything extra earned I make attempts at increasing curation rewards in order to support other projects through 100% upvotes or delegation.

I'm also getting a lot of traction on Weku with a lot of support from the bigger dogs on there. Will see what the future holds for my project.

Sounds good man. If there's a specific post you ever need shared just let me know.

Basically it's a complete lack of information on all fronts. Wikipedia, social media, (the initial difficulty of understand how steem works), lack of Steemit Inc presence. Developer api guides. Probably other things too.

Time. I think we are on track with the innovations and new products. We just need to keep up the tempo and give it time

  1. It has to be removed from the steemit inc team.
    The fact that steemit is owned by @ned and not steem holders is the entire problem with steemit. It is a privately held company and private companies do what is in the best interest of those private people!
  2. 14 week powerdown has to go. If you get rid of that investors will flock.
  3. The steempower that steemit inc holds need to be burned!
  4. abuse guidelines established by a complete community consensus. So that one person one vote can happen there will have to be an account verification process for every vote.

Up-voted, but couldn't decide on a single selection because 'MOST' of the suggestions from the 'poll list' need to be fulfilled for attracting and maintaining growth on the platform; and...from a users perspective, it is 'so' obvious...

All the most recent 'changes' (constantly, sudden and without prior announcement or polling of users) were detrimental to the user base. Stinc needs a good 'Idea Man' or they need to listen to the people already here/there who have proposed good recommendations...

It seems, there might be the wrong people in charge...IMO, or management is smoking some really 'bad' weed...

Multiple things actually. One of the bigger issues I have with dragging people over is the long wait time to get a free account. I tell them it's a blogging and social media platform and that there are services attached to it via third party developers to make it like twitch, youtube, pinterest, reddit, pornhub, etc based on their interests and their interest in monetization of their content.

And among the first thing they tell me is "yeah, wait time is too long or I have to pay for instant? Nah forget that".

Then there's other bits like how much of a pain in the royal ass it is to actually invest into the platform itself so it definitely needs listed on more exchange sites.

I'd also argue further that Steemit itself needs to expand, not just using the IPFS system but going further it needs to allow for video and audio uploads so that one doesn't need to use a third party service in order to get that functionality.

I also agree with a lot of what the other commenters have posted.
