How to Save SteemsteemCreated with Sketch.

Steem has a reward pool that must be paid out everyday, around the clock. It should’ve been a highly competitive game where the best content contributors win. A grand contest. But we ain't there yet.

Here’s what might need to happen next.

We need global ruling.

But who makes the rules?

Answer: Intelligent topic and rule "randomization" via the blockchain. Blockchain developers code in the intelligence, perhaps partially selected from an aggregation of trending topics on the Internet, but the blockchain ultimately rolls the dice and makes the decision.

Example of a pop-up screen whenever post editor is loaded:-


1st January 2020.

Topic of the day: How to Save Steem.

or

Topic of the week: Milk.

or

Topic of the month: Climate Change.

Rules:-

  1. Every rewarded post and vote must be relevant to the topic.
  2. Satire only.
  3. Original content only.
  4. Avoid surpassing Voting Circle Index of 3.142.
  5. Don’t break any rules, or you may receive downvotes.

So there are no rules to having one's own rules?

The power of the written word.

Can you see it now? This solution provides clear guidelines for both posting and voting behaviors. It's the anchor we sorely needed, since the individual rules / tastes of voters are apparently unacceptable when money is involved. Expectations on Steem will become so much easier to manage and we may achieve better results.

This is all we really needed since the beginning. Imagine millions of people duking it out in one global arena, trying to best each other. Becoming better and better.

I know I’ll use such an platform daily. Great content, plus the ability to earn some crypto by participating. Why not? It has a unique place in everyone's digital lives along with the other already established apps. That's how Steem could get widely accepted around the world.

Let’s just go with this simple plan.

That should bring the participation level down a bit more!

Can you name one successful Author's Site?

What do you perceive the potential market for this to be? (how many people want to participate in a Writing Contest, day after day)

2 billion people casually post on the Internet each day...

The only one's I know are completely devoid of audience besides the other Authors and an English Instructor or two.

Who do you expect to participate? Who do you expect to read the results.

I'm hoping you are kidding....

I've used the appropriate tags lol

Those were not the right tags of the month. Your penalty downvotes will arrive shortly.

i'll just use like 20 of them next time xD

Oh thank goodness! haha
:) I missed the tags.

Lol!😂😂😂👍

SeriousNotSerious News. I like it! lol

Yeah why not just have the blockchain pass out random prizes!

I like your point, I haven't read the whole road map but my intuition tells me that Steemit aims to be a general social network. Not for authors willing to put in the effort of writing high quality but extensive content every day.

My Milk Post

by @NoNamesLeftToUse

Got milk?

That is a question some people ask other people. In the end, milk is what everyone wants, all day.

Some people put milk in their coffee. I prefer cream but I'm not allowed to talk about that because I won't get paid.

Some people put milk in their cereal. I'm one of those people and now that I've made that clear, I'll be able to afford more cereal, since I said milk again and that's how I get paid.

Did you know milk comes from cows?

Me too.

Anything with tits has milk but not all milk tastes good.

In conclusion:

Milk has calcium.

And that's why milk is good for you.

I hope you enjoyed my milk post and since that is what's so goddamn important these days, I'll be back in two hours with another post about milk. So make sure you have a nice warm glass of milk ready in two hours and I'll see you then my fellow milk lovers.

Bye

They took the bottle away from that kid a little too soon I'm thinking.

The real joke I was going to write here was far too inappropriate.

I haven't had milk in 20 years.

It's probably sour by now. Smell it first.

That's a list nobody wants to be on.

Circlejerk index cannot exceed 3.142? That's just irrational

Hahhahahah OMG this joke. I'm howling

People are basically much more intelligent than they think of themselves. If one doesn't think others are so smart, one may want to give them incentives and move them like figures on a game board, one believes this "mis-take". The echo chamber sends its greetings.

Steemit has no rules, so everyone has to regulate himself and do self-censorship and reflection, listen to his inner intelligence and follow the ethical code he knows well. Civilization has long internalized unwritten laws and there is no wild West that is not immediately recognized as such. Who then still succumbs to the seduction to conceal his inexperience in real life in the form of responsibility for other people and lets himself be blinded by the many hurrah's, is nevertheless brought to the ground of facts, because all are too clever to believe their own narcissism in the long run. It is a sign of collective intelligence to leave a space that shows a strong pull towards abuse and a lack of sense of justice. Why want to save what does not want to save itself? I'd rather recommend let go of the efforts and start to have another form of cooperation. Ignoring rewards. LOL.

Everyone pursues the interests and specialties to which he feels attached and which inspire him anyway. Incentives are - from my point of view - only a short-term means to distract from them, but will not last long and must be fanned again and again. Incentives and competitions are short-term compensators for something you're not really interested in but think you have to do because the reward is the cocaine you've become accustomed to.

It seems to be proven that collaboration and consensus are much more effective and leave a longer effect and clear memory traces in people's lives, while short-term rewards are like shoes: you find them beautiful for a few days, but want to have new ones soon.

I read that your appeal is half funny and half serious. A little test balloon? Happy to see that you take it easy.

Incentives and competitions are short-term compensators for something you're not really interested in but think you have to do because the reward is the cocaine you've become accustomed to.

For some, incentives and competition are the only reason why they pursue their interest in excess though, but I guess there's always a small subset of people who's rather different from the rest.

And of course, I think the best is a healthy mix of collaboration.

It's not a test balloon btw :P

Came back to read your proposal again.

I want to challenge your idea. What if you think that "innovation" means that something is not yet present, it's not on the Internet, because it's so unusual that nobody talks about it? You suggest that topics that are already trendy are discussed. That is basically an adjustment to the already dominant situation. However, the majority is not representative of dissent. Your idea seems to be based on the mainstream, while I suggest looking at side streams/no streams. ;-)

As far as you consider Steemit, for example, as a space in which to thematize what is already being thematized, outside and inside, the same thoughts are rolled over and over again in different intensities, colors, and forms. Yet they are the same thoughts. I have now deliberately exaggerated to make my point.

After your procedure, I think, no theme would ever manage to achieve a lively participation that is not already sailing on the upwind. If you try to look at the search engine the other way round, what do you see?

I see that a search engine can only be used for what is already there. But it is completely useless to want to find something that is not yet there. Any knowledge excludes "not knowing" in this way. Someone then has to put something in from outside for it to gain digital visibility. Wikipedia tries to meet that "issue".

Unknown/innovative things always come about through marginal topics, never thought of before. Or so buried in the past that it fell into oblivion.

For me your thought looks like an algorithm similar to amazon or youtube algo, after products and topics are suggested to me based on my preference. I basically like that. However, I like to be irritated by ideas that I don't yet know exactly how to assess, that have an experimental character.

Question: how do you want to code intelligence into the blockchain? I didn't understand that.

In fact, I would suggest reducing the attention of contributions to digital space, bouncing posts off a wall that orientate themselves in tonality, taste, and presentation to what already exists. I don't exclude myself. I suppose my own postings, when it comes up, are mostly ordinary up to a little off track. If I choose the pearls from my blog history, perhaps a very small number would come about. .... Which brings me to the thought that the past postings come much too short. ... I'd be interested to know if there's anything you could do with this.

So we seem to understand each other in the basic idea, since I suspect what you mean by "the best of the best" also corresponds to what I consider to be something good. However, I'm assuming that any publishing of content is basically pointless if it's a means and an end at the same time. Like beating time.

In my view, the best content creators are the Buddhist monks who give weekly lectures to a small audience. Rarely have I felt so inspired. In fact, a Buddhist monk would never take part in such a competition. LOL :D

It's probably as you say. I'd rather see people less continuously following external incentives, but more exploring their own potentials and doing contemplative research that gradually blossoms these long-term potentials. I find a lot of inspiration in research. When I was still working in the media scene, I received a financial bonus because I had managed to retain our client for another year. I would have done the same without this bonus. So the extra money was a very nice side effect for me, but it wouldn't have affected me much if I had been told beforehand that I would get more money. And although I have always thought that PR and advertising are basically a rather annoying invention, I learned a lot in this profession and was able to express my creativity relatively unhindered. I had a lot of fun and got to know people who had various interesting professions. It was a beguiling and challenging time.

... Anyway, I wish the people that they experience drive, inspiration and joy out of themselves, without becoming too dependent and then unhappy... you surely understand what I mean...?

No test balloon? Then I have to read the blog again.

I'm impressed with your comments.

I very much enjoy that you have drawn out the fact that truly new concepts will not be found via a Google search if the idea is in fact a seed.

Researching other approaches is certainly a vital move; if only to get creative wheels oiled, or identify errors in other blueprints (learning competitors weak places, or to solve and prevent the same shortfall for steem).

You make an excellent point about your personal experience receiving a financial bonus in a workplace; quality and driven persons want to achieve- it's a human syndrome, but that inventive is still effective. Another human syndrome is our need for reward. If you were given the option to do the same job, same environment, nothing any different except that you know that option B NEVER rewards bonuses, would you be ridiculous enough to depart from option A? No.

Humans feed (figurative and literal) on reward. It's true that reward manifests in many shapes, not solely monetary. But I consider and have always considered myself a writer. I love to write. I live to write. I often write random words simply because I thirst for the feeling of a perfect pen sliding across paper or that musical sound of a keyboard tapping. I don't NEED the financial reward to write but what I WANT is that financial inspiration.

I will always write- money or not but would I go elsewhere if steem's measly few cents didn't excite me? Yes. Well- actually I am very impressed with the community here so there's also that.

As a person who honestly considers themself a writer, and has made that my only real life goal since the age of seven, I do want to make bank. It's a writer's dream. Granted, I've not put much effort into obtaining financial sustainability through my written work (with the exception of business writing for marketing and advertising), I can admit that I've never quite found the right medium that suited.

I write poetry; poets don't make money. At this time in my life, I don't want to be a novelist. Magazine writing would have been nice but... perhaps with too much restriction. Journalism would be fun to dabble in only. Nothing quite fit me so I simply continued on my wandering journey, sticking my toes in the lakes and springs to find the perfectly temperatured water to jump into.

I'm still not sure if steem is the perfect waters for me to springboard from but I can say that the entire concept has kept me attentive, motivated and inspired more than I've felt. Like many other Steemians, I see the grand potential here. I'm not making a living on steem but it's certainly doing something to keep me around- be it measly .50 cents a post- it works!

If another site comes along and improves on the steemit concepts, I'm gone. I'll cross post but my loyalties will shift. This is common sense.

Even though this primary blog post is taged as a joke, the final point is that improvement is key. If we don't solve the problem then someone else is going to come along and use steemit and the blockchain as an excellent benchmark.

Once upon a time... long long time ago... in a land far far away... there was only McDonald's. Once upon a time.

Thank you, I'm pleased about this surprising comment. I have reduced my activity here a lot lately.

Are you sure that inspiration comes from the fact that the water is pleasantly tempered? I would like to ask you about your experiences, when and on what concrete occasion you were inspired, or what states of aggregation it was that, for example, brought a poem out of you that you would, without hesitation, have offered to a world-class publisher, or that you would read on the public street by yourself (or someone who dares)?

If you compare your work with poets who mean something to you or impress you, do you see yourself next to them as equal or close?

I haven't looked at your blog yet.

I've been trying to write fiction for a while and have a finished and a started book at home. When I stuck my nose in the Writers Block at the beginning of my time on Steemit, I was made aware that it would rain hard criticism, which, however, was meant to be that one could absolutely improve oneself and the criticism of the others - who, as far as I know, had their own publishing and authoring experience - would be very helpful. I realized that if I meant it seriously, I would have had to put far more energy, time and ambition into it. I didn't, so I decided I was a hobby writer.

I'm not sure if the question was addressed to me where you ask if if you had the opportunity to do the same job, the same environment, and not do anything different except know that Option B never pays bonuses, would you be silly enough to deviate from Option A?

It's a hypothetical question that I can't answer without a concrete real context. But I think the likelihood of getting a bonus increases if I don't claim it, but still stick to my quality claim of work that satisfies me the most. If I then meet the goodwill of the others who agree, I can consider myself fortunate. If not, my well-being does not depend on it.

Of course, I could try to contract a bonus from the outset. I already did something like that when I started a job and after a six-month probationary period I secured a salary increase. I could also have tried to secure a share of the profits. Nobody forbids you to negotiate. When I was younger, I negotiated from an employer that he should pay me Christmas bonus, just like all other employees, although I had already resigned. We argued for a while because he said that Christmas bonus was an incentive to do a good job next year, while I thought it would be paid for work already done. I was wrong. My boss at the time paid me a share anyway.

Today I am no longer so determined about bonuses, it doesn't mean as much to me as it did back then. As always, it depends on the concept of life, the age, the experiences made and the present context. Things change all the time. When I think it's time to demand something, I do. If not, I leave it. It also can change within a day or a context. Once my ambition is aroused, I can be determined. Then comes a time, when I am not. Many things I thought were so important weren't so important, after all. In the recent months I wrote more for my hard drive than to the public space. It failed to get through my own quality control :)

Good bye from Germany.

Good morning (here) @erh.germany. Browsing this morning, this caught my eye ...

"I have reduced my activity here a lot lately."

... as I am in the "same boat." While you and I have not engaged that frequently, I am familiar with your account name. And have been impressed in the past with the thoughtful manner in which you write.

So ... If not prying too much, I'd be curious and interested to know why you activity "in here" has been reduced.

Good evening, @roleerob:)

I'm surprised to get one or two comments after all. Have we had direct contact yet? Your name also looks familiar to me and I saw you before.

It's difficult to explain why I'm reducing my activity here. ... Surely it has something to do with the fact that so many people went away and I was a little spoiled with my comment area.

Maybe I have also offended/neglected one or the other, this can also be the case, so that it seems to me subjectively that my readership - old and new - has thinned out very much.

I would have had to muster far more energy to search for people who would visit my blog, as I did at the beginning of my time. I think a second approach, so committed, seems to me too much effort for a platform that seems to be "dying". But I can also be mistaken.

... But I feel like I've gone through many ups and downs with Steemit, which I find unusual in itself, because it's kind of strange to care so much about a place that has problems that don't have to be problematic ... well, kind of confusing that whole thing ... .

However, and this has always bothered me, the short attention span of seven days, as well as the impossibility of being commented on by guest users, is a killer in my eyes. As long as Steemit was actively practiced by its own participants, it wasn't quite as relevant, but now that it's becoming empty, it's extremely noticeable.

At some distance I consider it strangely focused - even by myself - to blog in an environment that is going through such negative spirals. I was getting afraid for my reputation and haven't asked for a while any of my acquaintances to come here. The conflicts were so expansive that I got involved, but a few days after being cooled down I wondered why this involvement ...

Steemit can - if you want to look at it this way - have almost a therapeutic effect on you because of this high conflict potential, if you consider how committed it sometimes was. In a way this is a little frightening, but also fascinating. But it is difficult to find the right balance between distance and closeness here.

I'm not sure whether an explanation can ever really be final and you should never say "never". But I do notice that I am now turning to other things and a little bit loses the addiction to look in every hour. I always have phases of very intensive involvement with special activities of mine and then they ebb away again until new ones come.

How is it with you? Do you have similar thoughts and experiences? I'd say it was (or is ...) one of the most exciting social media experiences I've ever had.

I would start with the suggestion not to tell people what to post and how to use their stake.
If I want to shitpost and don't care about rewards why should someone pick a topic for me?
And who can decide what great content is?

Flath earth, global warming, vegan, Trump.....?

Actually, you are right on this. I don't really know much about the shitpost but the fact that you want to create a good content should not be from someone else but be from yourself

Great comment.

why should someone pick a topic for me?

But in this case, the blockchain picks it lol

Even if Steem will one day be accepted by the whole world, he will be abandoned by the whole world very quickly. People are not fooled, they will see that it is always the same people who pick up the loot, while those who really work pick up only crumbs.

You're right, hopefully that gets addressed over time. You can't control people, but one can design economic incentives to favor breaking all the circlejerks. And if you didn't notice, this post is satire.

Yes, I saw it, that's why I stayed polite, lol.
But it was the right opportunity to say what I thought.

appreciated!

Absolutely, you said it all. We need

Global ruling

But the fear now is , who set the rules? We have so many questions to ask ourselves but it going to be a gradual process to achieve this great task.

As for the vote for Witness? It done. @kevinwong. You got a vote from me already.

The blockchain sets the rules! lol

Smile. That is. I accepted the fact that the blockchain set the rules but we also need to abide by the rules as well but as it is, so many of us Jump the Rules

But Steem should NOT be a pvp game of trying to kill everyone else on the board. It should be a game where everyone helps everyone else achieve their mission. Instead of pvp, one giant op where instead of a group of 8 or 16 to take down the big chicken droid (yeah maybe I was in swtor this week) it's hundreds, thousands, and millions of people, each contributing their own powers and abilities to help everyone else boost stats, everyone healing everyone, everyone tanking everyone (taking the brunt of things) everyone dps-ing those who would come and harm others. Isn't that much better than everyone running around trying to kill everyone else in order to be the sole survivor and the best?

Right, this post is actually satirical in nature if you didn't notice :p, although i'm also a tad skeptical since there tends to be cheaters and freeriders taking advantage off the goodness of folks so it's not all utopia.

Edit: funny i came across this reddit post after responding earlier: https://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/dahl2k/everquest_focused_on_coop_play_to_counter_ultima/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

Heh, yeah. That's interesting. In swtor, there is a bit of mix of pvp and pve but it depends on the instance you're in and all that. There are areas on some planets that have mission quests within that planet's pvp area. Oh boy, you go there at your own peril. You want to advance the story you're in, but the pvpers see that you're geared not for pvp and all jump on you. Ugh. It took me an hour to get that mission item on Tatooine. That was a couple of years ago. Not gonna do that mission again lol.

gettin wrecked

LOL you want to control people on here...Do you work for Google or Facebook? This should be as it is, a place or platform where everyone can be themselves. We are a crypto based social media site, yes we are new and early adopters but I think we are all finding our footing eventually.

This might be a platform for people like me, I’m very new to social media posting, but I love it! I might not be perfect and I’m learning as I go, but more rules here wouldn’t help me get better at all...

Hmmmm.....we get told what we can write about??? And if i choose to write off topic....I get downvotes? Why not simply set up a bunch of bots to post trending topics for us? I mean if we are going to program in intelligence to determine what we "can" be awarded for...why not just have it write the posts?

I don't know brother. I always thought this place was as close to decentralised as we can find online. And this sounds like a whole lot of centralizing. I do HIGHLY appreciate the fact that you are looking to help solve problems. And for that i thank you a thousand times. Keep at it! I am doing the same. But my direction is looking for real world uses of an immutable ledger known as steem. I wish you the best in your travels dearest friend!🤗
EDIT: I saw your tags after reading though the comments.(lots of good, passionate ones, people love Steem.)

I like how you describe STEEMIT as a game. This is essential if you want to grow the userbase.

The game has to be fun and fair for all the NEWBZ.

I recently wrote a post that describes STEEMIT as a game show, I call it The Bucket-Head Talent Show (TBHTS).

If you have a couple of minutes, I'd like to get your thoughts, https://steemit.com/philosophy/@logiczombie/my-30-days-on-a-tv-game-show-part-one

I actually like the circle voting index thing. Can you elaborate? :P

Lol i just thought about it while i was writing. Someone must've come up with the VCI already? If not, maybe a rudimentary calc is simply VCI = x / y, where:-

  • x = total voting power that's self-voted + reciprocated over z days (perhaps by a margin of 15% of 1:1 exchange).
  • y = total voting power cast over z days.

So yeah, there's no way VCI > 1.0 lol. Probably easy to do if can calc data for x right from the script in http://steemreports.com/votes-graph/ since it already shows the direction/magnitude of votes clearly. Dunno what's the time period used though.

Lol traf said thats basically the dishonest vote %. i'll just stick with VCI coz it just sounds cooler :p

Catchy abbreviations are important. DVP is somewhat closer to EIP, which worked well. I'm fine with both!

The crazy weather and vibes have done strange effect on your head?! Decentralization not re-centralization!
Freedom and liberty for life.

I also have a simple plan (that is if simple plan is the topic of the day):

Get GaryVee (Gary Vaynerchuk) to use Steem. Make him talk to his followers about Steem the way he does about Instagram, LinkedIn, TikTok... and voilà! The content creators herd is coming!

Posted using Partiko Android

As someone in the mainstream content marketing and social media marketing industry (day job, what's good), the barrier to entry is too high. Getting past the velvet rope is only like, 20% of that onboarding experience - then you have to wrap your head around all this stuff and meanwhile, you're thinking, "Dang. I just want to enter my email address and password in. Never mind."

GaryVee's content is compelling (and his following massive and properly mainstream) because it's accessible and interesting to people outside of the super exclusive online club comprising social media marketing professionals.

Being a STEEM noob, I don't have the context or history with this platform to speak to its maturity, but I will say that it is, from an outsider's POV, positively hyper-niche.

It'd be interesting to find out how many people stumbled upon STEEM looking for a content creation/social media platform and signed up primarily to fulfill that purpose (with crypto rewards being secondary to the decision) — my guess is probably not many at all.

That said, I think the TravelFeed team is doing a great job doubling down on an audience in an effort to support adoption (and high-quality contributions) from the non-crypto curious.

I think someone tried that before.. the platform here ain't quite ready yet tbh

I'm not surprised someone would have attempted this before and I think you're right about the platform not having matured enough yet for mass adoption.

Hello @kevinwong :D

Not sure if to randomize the rewards is something that we all are looking for. The core features of steem blockchain in my opinion are communities which help each other and appreciate what one brings to the table.

Turning a blogging platform into a daily writing contest isn't going to change anything. Steem is losing value because there is no demand for the token and the blockchain keeps creating more supply. There is no reason why anyone outside of the steem ecosystem would want to hold the steem token. Add in the fact that they've made onboarding impossible and you've got a fairly worthless token.

Great work ♥️, Brothers, @kevinwong.

How to Save Steem

In January of 2020, Mr Mark Zukerberg became fed-up with the slow pace of negotiations regarding his prize cryptocurrency and when approached about a small loan to start the project called Facebook Utility Token he decided to lend a few thousand dollars to a startup group. This group created a Token on the Steem-Engine sidechain called the Fabulous Utility Token or FAB Token for short and the Tokens will be referred to as FABs. The project is known as Fabulous.io and features a common social media signup procedure in which you use a username of your choosing and a password and if the account name is not taken you can open an account almost instantly. You then can start posting the same day.

You will be assigned both a Steemit account and a Fabulous.io account. The administration of Fabulous.io will manage your Steemit account. Which means they will maintain your wallet security for you, unless they get hacked.

They will keep track of your rewards and periodically when you hit certain milestones they will power up your account, so your likes or upvotes on Fabulous.io are worth more FABS. ‍✈️

You can request to cash out your rewards and your FABs can be sold on the Steem Engine DEX and then transferred to an External Exchange where your Steem will be sold for dollars. You will then get dollars direct deposited in your bank account. Alternatively you can transfer your FAB to another user anywhere in the world. You can also send money to Fabulous.io to buy FABs for you. The administration will take care of buying Steem with your fiat and then Purchasing Fab.
Your Fabulous.io posts will now simultaneously post on Facebook. But you must post on the Fabulous.io site to get paid.

This project will create demand for Steem and save Steem as demand for Steem to power the accounts of Fab users grows.

I like the Battle Royale of Content & (despite misgivings) am still trying to do my part to promote Steem —- such as, this piece, today, in a news outlet: https://steemit.com/promo-steem/@yahialababidi/i-m-promoting-the-steem-blockchain-in-a-news-magazine

Hope it helps🤞

This post won $ 77. That is why Steemit will not be great. The PV is a bad thing.

It hasn't "won" since it can get downvoted anytime before 7 days. What's PV btw?

Good consideration for the Battle!
The rule of any battlefield is No Rule!
In order to steem yourself much steem.... to get more and more participation and interaction...
Be yourself at least but not at last! Do it with originally proudness of yourself!
Good steem for everyone!

I actually think having a focused topic of the week would be lovely. This way if I like jazz or poetry, I can bend my efforts to fit the global topic which may be #pumpkin.

I don't know if you were serious, but this would be great. And there should be a human who decides the content. AI should look outside of steemit and help guide our energies to take a couple weeks to write about what people outside steemit want.

Example:

Week 1: #steemit #fakestory #realpeople
Week 2: #google #trending #worldcup
Week 3: #steemit #emoji #history # art
Week 4: #twitter #trending #Icantbewithsomeonewho
if(Week5) { #steemit #5thdimension #reddit} else {postMonthlyStats();}

Seal it up in an air tight bag and throw it in the freezer!

It should’ve been a highly competitive game, But we ain't there yet.


Further research shows you haven't downvoted shit since HF21

Lol sorry, i dunno how you researched. There are downvotes everyday in the last week, except the last 24 hours. And this post is meant to be satire.

edit: dved this coz i prioritize controlling my comment section.

Yeah, the tool I uses wasn't good, sorry for the false accusation.
BTW There is no reason to hold onto your downvoting power, a downvote when at 100% has same effect as when at 8%

You mean 8% as seen at the bar in steemd?

I've tested and confirm...

Same rshare same decrease in VP
