#NewSteem ¿Are we already lowering our content quality standards?

in newsteem •  5 months ago 

Making the whales earn more at the expense of everyone else is not going to make Steem get adopted, it is going to turn it into a graveyard... or at most, a low quality blogging platform.

Since many people we were following are now posting less and less!!

¿ONBOARDING?

...tiny plankton, shoals of red fishes, small minnows & slightly bigger sea life?


Really? ¿Are you serious whales?

"The 20-Steem Boundary"

Sheez! Sea mammals. I was just knocking on the door of the curators' club of this place to ask how all this 20-Steem Boundary works. But I've already felt as the curiosity & desire to continue investigating has vanished and it already taken me away to not keep asking. I am fragile! you know?

You are not for so much. I am not for so little. WE'LL GO BACK TO ROLL IT AND YOU KNOW IT!

Anyway & Anyhow...

I will keep a close eye on your bullish Sleeper's Orgasmatron because my curiosity is infinite. And I plan to witness and decipher soon how all this new kinda hidden 'rewards curve' will influence the 'onboarding' campaign and many other goals. InquiringEyes.png

Yeah! I can see all of you gambling inside, thru the tiny windows of your exclusive 'Curators' Club'. Yup, you all betting in there with your best poker faces to overbid your crony' bets. Yes I know. "Dogs doesn't eat dogs"

Since friday night until now, I went out there, around this place, armed with my best 'clicking' weapon and shoot some shots in the inhospitable sylvan New-Hot-Trending wilderness tabs looking for new preys in which discharge all the fury of my mostly random 'curation' bullets.

But unfortunately, I didn't find anything to aim for and not even found anything worthwhile to shoot, make they stand still in the spot & then waste my time trying to skin them later.

Therefore, I had no choice but to go back, one more time, to the backyard of my own 'Feed Page' in search of a more nutritious piece in which try to sharpen my aim and to shoot at. And even when I could find something at least worth to shoot at. In the "content quality standards" department, I found out that the music in the background was sounding a bit haunting.

I've like the feeling that most of this new steem is like shooting oneself in the foot... People feel like they need to give away their free downvotes. It's a bit difficult at times to find something deserving so let's just downvote something that is not good enough in our eyes.... I just made the experience with @ help.venezuela. 90 upvotes killed by 1 downvote from somebody who thought it was his task to judge everything that he doesn't understand.... Best is to stop writing so as not to get into the net of the over zeelous whales...

Best regards my friend. It's always refreshing to read your texts ;-)

Haha yeah! The well known syndrome of trying to build the house first from the roof downwards. Or sorta put the carriage in front of the horses to go ahead. I guess you already know the type. };)

Yup! I've indeed read that post and also all the comments in there. Following the whole discussion with the exchange of 'perspectives' between fellow philanthropists. ;)

Ah! don't worry my dear friend. If they continue in that hasty conduct of judging 'quality' things blindly as they have already been doing it. Sooner rather than later they will realize that they have nothing left but pure shit to 'curate'.

Best regards my friend. It's always refreshing to read your texts ;-)

I'm very glad you still find my texts refreshing. In spite of all the dense molasses with which I usually sweeten them. };)

Cheers!!

I gotta admit I do not go into the wilderness nearly as often as I should. I am such a bad steemian I don't even flag. I can't flag if I don't read anything... I have quite a few auto votes going out so vp being high is not really an issue but I do like to find someone new once in a bit but random curation is not within my vote value, it is nice to over time have given someone votes that equate to something , you know make the fuck breakfast before I dissapear. Dunno that just kinda how I do it. With tipu I can feel a bit better about just dropping in once in a blue moon though. As for the curve, it feels like you are either a star or the one sucking off the stars. So very realistic. !tipuvote 1

Yeah @penderis. You certainly must be a bad bad steemian. Hahahaha

How you dare not go out there into the wilderness more often in a rampant process of hunting & discovery?

There is a ton of poisonous snakes, ugly spiders and plenty scorpions swimming on this pond waiting for you to tame them with your sweet 'curation' vote. Most of them dreaming to form part of your auto votes list and your never well enough valued tips from @tipu.

With tipu I can feel a bit better about just dropping in once in a blue moon though.

No problem. Right now I'm going to make sure that at least 4 times a week, there is always a blue moon available in the sky to wake up your lycanthropy instincts and watch your metamorphosis more often. I can vouch tipu's votes feel highly vigorizing. :)

As for the curve, it feels like you are either a star or the one sucking off the stars.

Not in vain it's told that all these 'stars' use to shine in just the "Milky Way" in one way or another. Until these 'stars' realize that they are only living in a very tiny speck floating in space within the bigger vast realms of a clusterfuck named Laniakea.

Thank you very much for stop by to show your support and drop your very welcome vote, tip and comment.

Cheers!! :)

I was actually looking for curation trails to follow now that vote selling is dead and we need to actively curate! I always sold it my VP was above 98% so I don’t waste VP each day and I can still manually curate

What I have found is a lot of content I wouldn’t upvote but it’s like the best of the bunch kinda thing and lots of people are just upvoting popular steemians to bank on the curation rewards so it compounds with those who are already popular have have stake

They’ve forked steem into a whale decision maker system so they need to start setting the example and vote and flag they wanted all the power so they must use it! If they don’t start finding people who are worth building into the minnow, dolphin and orca middle class then who will?

Hi @chekohler.

Nice to see you here for the first time commenting on one of my posts mate. Yeah, I understand pretty well what you say. And I have to confess that I never followed any curation trail or voting guild in my more than three years here. Well yeah, I tested them a couple of times as a simple experiment just to know how they worked. But nonetheless, I've always preferred to feed my brain first more than my wallet. So, "AI blind curation' has proved to be too weak to provide me a strong and lasting boner. Manually, yeah manually seems healthier, less risky of contracting STDs/STIs & more effective to fulfill 'curation' fantasies with better multiorgasmic rewards.

Is not this cute living in a farm with as much milkers with their big buckets in each hand ready to left the old cow dry?
Yes, but never tell them that you first also have to go out to find green grass and cut hay to feed them well so that they continue producing milk which they can milk later.

Whales are giant mammals way too heavy and clumsy as to swim around the shores, in the coasts and in shallow waters. They would perish from starvation unless the pauper plankton and shoals of poor small fishes did not dare to swim in deep waters on their way to reach 'middle class status' in which they are risking being eaten in just one big bite by them.

Soon it remains to be seen with what the fuck they are gonna feed themselves, if from now on are gonna be them the ones who won't want to risk being stranded on the beaches looking for their easy food when the little fishes will start to refuse to swim in deeper waters.

The aural exploration was amazing.. I'm half asleep and that track captured that inbetween state perfectly...

Personally I had a blast exhausting my flags. In fact I don't even upvote anymore but I'll make an exception for you of course as you have always inspired my precision and penchant to exact the most efficacious use of my influence..

Im waiting for my flags to recharge but I will be hard-pressed to ever replicate the last days success...

The potential positive progression of the chain is palpable if one can see through the posturing and pompous power plays of the wounded and dying... I'm going to let the dust settle a bit before I go back into battle.. Happy hunting my friend!

Haha, I suspected this aural exploration today surely would have that kind of DMT flavor in your singular humanity If you consumed it my friend. I feel glad that I contributed at least a little to take you peacefully to the arms of Morpheus. Rest well buddy. That although you had a blast spreading flags, I can understand that this activity can be highly strenuous & exhausting. :)

Awww! this actually feels great. Right now I am going to dedicate some time to knit you a couple of pink baby booties to match your Hello kitty pajamas.

It is never too late when bliss is good mate. Replicate successes will be always the climax of healthy heresy endeavors. Never hard-pressed to accomplish our humble goals. The path to create consciousness will indefectibly require a great dosage of patience and a zen mindset.

I agree. And I believe the potential positive progression of the chain will be even more palpable, as long as the voices of outlaws & outcasts watching things out-the-box do not give up expressing freely and without fear, their mildy unpopular perspectives with the mass.

Happy hunting my friend!

Yeah! with vigilant reasoning and good will hunting, I reset. :)

Hope you find something to upvote soon :)

Sure mate!! :)

And as soon as I can improve my German language, way more stuff to 'organically' upvote and 'manually' curate I'll find. };)
