I think you can also make it a no-rewards post? Use the option "Decline payout" !

(edit: I noticed others also mention this. Added a screenshot for clarity)

Great success in Miami & Swiss!

I disagree @roelandp , that decline payout option should be reserved for special circumstances and being a successful blogger on steemit is not one of them, and should not be.

Ok but as Charlie mentions he wanted to keep writing but not drain the rewards pool, it could be an option..?

I mean... for me he is very welcome to "drain" the rewards pool as much as he can..., but if he wouldn't want, he could also just use that?

It sucks we're running into the comment depth limit here but the concept of draining the reward pool is a bad one that leads to confusion. Steem stakeholder accounts vote on posts and their staked vote says where the rewards go. Nothing is "drained," just distributed.

It's his personal choice what reasons he chooses. From reading the post it sounds like that's what he wants to be able to do; write and get to the trending page (or just be read) while still seeing the steem token widely distributed -which gives it more value.

It would be cool @dan if we could choose the percentages on payouts, like we do for voting power. Instead of 0/50/100 let us choose 0-100. :)

AFAIK it's possible in Steem to set a cap on your payout, this is how the payout declined posts works. But you could set it to say $50 or any other number you like. By default it's set to $1,000,000 according to steemd.com pages. It's not implemented in the Steemit UI apart from a setting for $0.

That would be interesting!!

To the moon man!

I agree with @pfunk, there is no reason to stop posting.

It's a great gesture that you're making. Looking forward to see more new people. :)
