Great. How do you make these GIFs out of video? Is there a tool?

It's pretty easy. Just go to Giphy and press on the create button. Here's the direct link: http://giphy.com/create/gifmaker

Then input your youtube video url. Then you select which part of the video you want to be made into a gif.

For me it's been the question in the last couple of weeks. Have this whales bought​ considerable amounts of steam in the very beginning?

No, most of the mega whales were miners. They got in early with mining and mined a shit ton of Steem. So these same miners (many of which have very questionable social skills) have had a lot of influence over the formation of a social community. This is not ideal actually, as those in power with regards to money don't usually make the best community builders. Add to that the fact that I doubt the early miners actually enjoy reading.......This is what i see as a huge issue. There was no careful selection in who became powerful.
Now, there have been a number of investors since then who bought their way in and are now exerting their own idea of what this steemit site should be. And again, those who have loads of money, are not usually the best community builders. This is pretty obvious. I could go on.......
Although it is possible, it's doubtful.....
I've been involved in a lot of real-world community building projects and the leaders tend to be people-oriented, not money oriented. People who have compassion and a passion for caring for others are the ones that need to be entrusted with building a social community. This has not been the case here, and is in my opinion why there's been so much bad blood spilled everywhere.

You're right, strictly miner guys and big investors don't have good community skills. Probably that's the reason of such controversies in the last week with the upvoting/downvoting situation. Without clearer objectives for Steemit as a community, how can anyone invite friends to join? I'm not inviting anyone to this drama community, at least for now.

That's a moving video, too. Well worth watching! It does represent the current situation. Crux question, for sure.

yeah, it's really how i feel things went in the wrong direction in the beginning. maybe things will improve.......i'm hopeful they will improve and make it worthwhile for readers to show up here. That's my goal, anyway.
