Share2Steem, back in business (without me, finally).
Good morning, everyone,
The last few days have not been easy for Share2Steem, its creators and especially its users. A great misunderstanding is at the root of this drama.
To tell you the problem was first of all a relational problem between @algo.coder and me. He was a little harsh in his comments, and I was rather sensitive. The egos were mistreated, and for my part I felt things slipping away. So I decided to leave Share2Steem, but it was out of the question to leave with nothing. The discussion with @algo.coder got worse, and in a fit of anger I deleted the Discord server and everything in it.
It was a terrible mistake on my part, and a great lack of respect for users, and I apologize for that. It caused a big mess, and created other problems. The next day, I posted a message explaining that @algo.coder and I had different points of view and that @algo.coder had left with the source code and database. I was terribly wrong in my choice of words. I should have said that we had split up and that he had kept these elements, it would have been more accurate.
I also indicated that he wanted to leave the blockchain. Here again, it is a matter of understanding on my part. Rather, it was the principle that the project would not be 100% Steem-based.
But to be honest, my starting message was not this one at all. It was an angry message, telling the facts (in my own words of course) and explaining that I was leaving and why. But I was advised not to post this message, and to be more diplomatic. This is my big problem, I tend to act without thinking sometimes, and then I have to be slowed down.
So I wrote a more neutral message, which you could then read, which many then read and took for granted. I would like to point out that the invitation to revoke access to the Share2Steem application and the advice to remove delegations was not my idea and was not part of my original message. But I nevertheless take full responsibility for it.
Anyway, the members on Discord played the role of mediators between @algo.coder and me, and we finally managed to agree on the business model to follow (it will be algo's) and apologized to each other and to the public, which I renew here.
I am absolutely sorry for the turn things have taken, and the harm I have caused including the impossibility to access the website, but also for the people who have removed their delegation and who, as a result, will have lost 5 days of income, hoping that they will agree to delegate again. I will do my best to compensate for this loss as soon as possible.
At the site level, it now uses the address https://share2steem.io, and share2steem.com now redirects to the.io. In case you still get an error message, cleaning your cache and deleting share2steem.com from your history should fix the problem.
There, I think I've said everything. I therefore reiterate my apologies to all those who have been penalized by these events, and thank all members who have helped to resolve this issue. I wish you a happy holiday season, and see you soon for my daily posts on Share2Steem.
