It has come to my attention that one of our primary founders, delegates and benefactors to the Minnow Support Project will be staggering a reduction in their delegation over the coming weeks. For the last 60 days @benjojo has been delegating 90,000 Steem to the Minnow Support Project. This Steem Power has been used to build from the ground up an organization that services just shy of 4,000 unique members on a discord server and a @minnowsupport account with over 3000 followers.
This has sent @siersod to STEEMFEST on behalf of the minnows. Created about 10-12 smaller bots that have goals from curation, to increasing liberty, to supporting those that make the Minnow Support Project function.
Now we are creating a Steemit publishing house, spreading poetry, helping writers, giving language support, helping to feed Venezuelans, supporting disabled Australians, our nomadic minnows, channels for anything from science to trading, bounty and contest runners, learning a second language and many other projects including @ausbitbank's @centerlink and @teamaustralia assisted by @choogirl and others.
We have put out two Medal of Honor winners so far.
@netuoso who created a central program to help manage all the various public accounts associated with Minnow Support Project. We called that bot MSP3K in honor of us reaching 3,000 people in Discord. You have been Witnessed Good Sir.
@crimsonclad and @followbtcnews have also been awarded medals each for their work on the www.minnowsupportproject.org website, which is in this humble minnows opinion, amazing work. @crimsonclad's tireless work has been instrumental in this particular project and I for one applaud her efforts.
@sircork and MSP have also been building a radio station to be housed in our Discord channel. It's called mspwaves.com and it'll help spread the voice of the minnows in the pond to the larger Steemit Ocean. @sircork the fearless DJ is helping to lead the charge there.
For personal reasons @benjojo has to start pulling back some of his delegated SP. That started today and will continue each week for the the next 4 weeks by removing 5,000SP/week. This has prompted a call to our supporters by way of this post.
The eventual goal is to get and keep @minnowsupport at 100,000SP. If there is too little SP there isn't enough of a starting draw to drag minnows into the community. Too much SP and there are too many reasons to game the system.
So, we are looking at having 100,000 SP on the public bot. There's a total of 115k SP on the account right now. 110k SP from delegations. 5k SP from posting and curation.
With @benjojo planning on pulling some support from the account we're going to be a little shy of our continued hope for 100,000 SP and we need to start planning for when @benjojo wants/needs to pull a further amount.
For those reasons we're reaching out to the community to support us. If you're a whale that isn't using all of your SP please consider delegating some of that to the public community account.
If you're a whale or dolphin who is an active curator, but believes in the mission of the Minnow Support project please consider delegating a few thousand SP to the project.
If you're just a minnow we'd love to work with you on donations even as small as 5-10 SP, but please don't delegate anything that would put you below 50 SP to make sure you always have enough power to act on the blockchain.
So, that's it. We need your help. Please click this link and delegate SP to help us continue the mission - https://mspdelegator.herokuapp.com/
If you require any assistance delegating I am more than happy to help in the comments below or on discord, whichever is easiest for you.
All you have to do is select the account you wish to delegate to, It defaults to @minnowsupport.

Enter your username once more, and active private key, you can find this on your wallet page after signing in.
Once you hit submit you should see broadcast successful.
Give yourself a pat on the pack, do a victory dance, you just helped us help the future generations of minnows grow. If you require further assistance than a comment or two here can provide, feel free to log onto the PALNet/MinnowSupport discord here https://discord.gg/yWn29K3
And if you see @benjojo, @ausbitbank @neoxian, @netuoso, @crimsonclad, @followbtcnews or @aggroed out there please send them much love and support because they have been wonderful contributors to this project and on behalf of all the minnows we are beyond grateful! Thanking you so very much, have a peach on me. <3
I'm feeling the love today, so for every bit of steempower I gain from this post, (it's set to 100% on this post) I will +1 each and every one and delegate the lot to @minnowsupport.
I don't usually ask for a resteem and upvotes but this project has been instrumental on helping me find my footing in the shifting tides of steem it, and I would love to see the Minnow Support Project and PAL be able to continue to provide this level of support to each and every one of you.
Thank you for taking the time to read through this dearest readers, much love and feel free to come say hello on discord. https://discord.gg/yWn29K3
