@tenkminnows had a couple more suggestions of people to support who have been added. Delegation and following the trail are welcome to help build up minnows. Or you can buy your way there pretty cheaply now.

This is a story worth mentioning. I was listening in as he was talked around on Discord yesterday. Should be less crap posts getting paid votes now.

BTW On the Steemit web stats I noticed some top countries dropped off the list including the UK, Germany, Spain and Japan. That could be why it dropped so much. Other sites on there still show them, so I wonder what happened.

Thanks @pennsif, its awesome to have Steem News again xx
