We are Making Good ProgresssteemCreated with Sketch.

in #steemlast year (edited)

Dear Steemians,

We listened to the Steem community, and we always will. While we do not agree, nor obviously support the recent hardfork, we continue to find ways to show our commitment to developing our Steem ecosystem with the support of our great community. We love Steem and we are always supporting a united community since we believe that united we stand, divided we fall.

Steemit will always stay.

And yes, we did add the ability to hide posts that violated the terms of condition of steemit.com, those posts are still existing in the blockchain but not showing in steemit.com website, as we need to support our content and the community's content. Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one? No. That would not be in the best interest of the community and the Steem ecosystem.

All this being said, we are fully committed to supporting witnesses that vow to protect all Steemians’ stake. We will support any witnesses who publicly announce their promise to secure accounts, as well as update to SF 22.5.

Examples of these actions include the following community members which we have already voted for.

@triple.aaa:
https://steemit.com/witness-category/@triple.aaa/triplea-witness

@steem-dragon:
https://steemit.com/steem/@steem-dragon/steemdragon

@matreshka:
https://steemit.com/steem/@matreshka/matreshka-vash-russkii-witness

@zzan.witness: https://steemit.com/witness-category/@zzan.witnesses/make-an-entrance-steemzzan-witness

@Future.witness: https://steemit.com/delegations/@steemba/open-letter-from-dapps-to-justinsuntron

@steemhunt: https://steemit.com/delegations/@steemba/open-letter-from-dapps-to-justinsuntron

We also withdrew some of the vote of 11 temporary witnesses out of 20 and power downed @happylife123 and @onestepaday and will continue to do so with all temporary witnesses. Eventually we will put governance back in the hands of the community as soon as possible.

We will also be delegating Steem Power back to some of the projects decided on by the Delegation Committee and we will have a more frequent and transparent process of delegation. We would like to reassure you that we are committed to Steem for the long-term and plan to bring more value to Steem than even before. Behind the scenes, please be assured that we are working around the clock to make this a success, and create a path forward by returning governance back to normal within the next two weeks. We have a plethora of resources and a world class team that is dedicated to working on Steem and making it become the best decentralized social network we all envision.

The Steemit Team

Sort:  

Congratulations. You just permanently deleted the main value proposition Steemit has promoted for years. What happened to proof of brain?! Since the beginning, you've promoted the idea of allowing community and stakeholders to collectively judge what content should be Trending and receive attention. The accounts and posts you've now blocked received overwhelming support from the community, and you just made the decision to ignore community consensus and remove it. Thus deleting everything Steemit has worked to promote and found its future ideas for SMTs on.

And what's the idea of pointing to what a commercial website would do? The whole point of Steem/Steemit has always been to provide something different. It's funny to see the new owners themselves state what others have said as a joke, that you may as well not use a blockchain at all and just run a normal database if you're just going to ignore what's on the blockchain whenever it suits you.

it's always been proof of money-for brain ... if i have 20k sp and you get 1000 votes by people with a brain and 15 sp each

then my vote counts, dont be naive

I actually agree with that. But it's Steemit Inc themselves that defined the term proof of brain and made it the centerpiece of their product and the foundation for SMTs which was supposed to be their main focus.

So they're still undermining everything they've claimed to believe is a good product.

Communist Chinese bought it. Bye bye freedom of speech.

Hope they can make thing differently from now..wait and see for now..

Interesting... Facebook does not hide posts about it's competitors.
many other important and relevant social media do not hide form competition.

Sorry, but CENSORSHIP is not Decentralized.

Can you show me where in the TERMS hide posts that violated the terms of condition of steemit.com

it's in term 14.b.a where it says "you shall not compete with Steemit or we will block you and hate you forever and delete your posts"


Such drama, you've earned a DRAMA!

To view or trade DRAMA go to steem-engine.com.

I tender my resignation from the delegation committee. I don't support the censorship, nor the sock puppets, nor the human puppets, nor the steemit stake voting, nor the name calling, nor the lies to exchanges, nor the lies from the exchanges, nor really any action taken by steemit/justin/tron since Feb 14. Another sad day for Steem. Your only courses of action seem to be bribes, insults, censorship, and failure.

Not to change the subject, nor diminish respect for your action demonstrating your adherence to sound and necessary principle by your resignation, but I have yet to see what Steem-Engine must do, or stakeholders must, to migrate to Hive. Could you please address this matter in a timely way?

Thanks!

Please remove free downvotes, I want to turn on my bidbot and get back to vote selling business. Let's make Steem great again!

Don't forget about instant power downs to make all that cash flow straight into your pocket. ;)

I’m on board with instant power downs now... Gotta trade for Hive!

That's great idea!

Yes, why not! Let’s have at least some fun on this wastedump!

Think your comment may have been ironic. I had intended to downvote it otherwise but @ngc is making it difficult to view the nuance in your responses to know either way. If it was indeed or ironic, I'll gladly remove if I had flagged (not sure as I see the upvote visible on esteem. Things are all kinds of wonky).

But yeah this place is going to shit quickly if vote selling resurfaces. Nothing says race to the bottom faster than collusive voting IMHO.

Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one? No.

Yes, lots of websites have allowed this. Digg.com. Reddit.com. Myspace.com. Friendster, among many others.

This. Hiding such posts is only a sign of real weakness. Steemians who still care about what have been the core values of Steem for ages should 1. Do their own posts to highlight what's going on, and 2. make sure it gets seen.

It's not just about censorship resistance. It's about community and user co-ownership and proof of brain as the source for content discovery and ranking...

Probably any respectable website.

Great to live in denial.

I feel so safe knowing that commander Sun Yuchen is censoring Steemit rivals.

In two weeks time there will be no community left... let alone still willing to support your new puppet government, it is no improvement over the sock puppets and shows your continued ignorance of what decentralisation means.

Hiding the posts on steemit.com cracks most steemians up, as hardly anyone uses your shitty front end - it just confirms yet another massive issue - censorship is now endorsed by steemit on the steem blockchain, that goes against the fundamental principals most if not all steemians hold dear.... lmao you just encouraged those still holding out hope to jump ship with the rest of us, not to mention the free publicity you're sending our way.

The secret soft fork was not voted on fully and was against the DPOS consensus model full-stop. Stop Dev worshipping, as freezing someone's stake is a disgrace. The only thing they were protecting was there ego's and pockets.
The old witnesses have let us all down, not to mention they seem to lie quite alot as well.
I'm glad they are out the way so Steemit can maybe move on and improve. Peace!

you do realize that censoring what appears on steemit.com first guarantees those who remain will STOP using steemit.com and second will in fact MOVE to the other chain exclusively

NOT A GOOD MOVE for the community. For any community.

That's their intention. If they censor someone, you can be sure that they don't want them to continue using the site.

Mainly the content has been to shill and promote Steem Classic | HIVE. I'm sure they would have let that happen if the shoes were on the other foot? The high-ground (I know what is best because I say so) police bot would have been straight on it, especially if it even gets a chance to hit the trending page. Hippocrates.

Fuck you.

Double speak authoritarian centralist bullshit.

I honestly thought 1984 didn't apply in the online world, then you took over Steem. What a total fuck up you've made of it.

Best of luck censoring these comments.

Something else for you to react to in a knee-jerk way.

Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one?

Yes, it's normal for social media platforms to allow competitors to create accounts and advertise their services, and actively censoring these posts is antithetical to the value proposition of this blockchain.

Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one? No.

If you want users to stay you need to convince them by being better than the others. Censorship is a sign of weakness, desperation.

It's over, Justin. You just don't want to accept it yet.

What do mean? I seem to be replying fine. Even after the hackers tried to pull a fast one. You just don't want to accept that the HIVE consensus fiddle (secret Soft Fork) is a sign of weakness and desperation.
It is now over for the HIVE hackers and a new beginning for everyone else that play within the rules.

GFY

On a decentralized blockchain, you most certainly allow for posts urging folks to migrate somewhere else. Good ideas don't have to be enforced.

ETA: If you don't want people to leave, build a better blockchain. Newsflash: Centralized blockchain is not better. Tron is also not better.

Also,

"We'll allow the community to rule themselves as long as they rule in accordance with our wishes."

You can vote for any president you want as long as his name starts with Xi and ends with Jinping. Thank you very much for understanding.

Good job with that quick condenser update. You can now censorship any uncomfortable post.

Eventually we will put governance back in the hands of the community as soon as possible.

... until that community says something they arent supposed to say.

You are fucking despicable. I thought calling you guys communists and CCP was a "edgy burn" but you are the crypto embodiment of the CCP and everything all of us here wanted to escape...

You disgust me.

image.png

Stop wasting our time and yours. This is pathetic.

This is simply unfortunate confirmation that our once-beloved decentralized blockchain has been overtaken by privatized interests (perhaps it always was.) To be clear – there is absolutely nothing 'decentralized' about censorship. PERIOD.

I had admittedly been undecided about how I might proceed after tomorrow's HF, but this post has made my choice for me. I've given much to this chain, but...it's time to accept my losses and move on. How very disappointing.

hopefully both steem and hive will work in parallel and give fierce competition which will drive productivity. Good for both communities.

Will you be putting unfavourable comments in our censorship blocked list on Steemit? Fortunately I'm writing this from hive.blog right now.

https://steempeak.com/steem/@steemitblog/we-are-making-good-progress

Reading from Steempeak now which doesn't get censored :D

I totally disagree with the statement "Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one? No. " thats your bias opinion it happens on other CENTRALIZED platforms all the time. The fact thats concerning you proves CENTRALIZATION

Keeping things at ease is the best thing to do. I understand there will be no handover support from Steem Classic/Hive so it will take your team time.

I am willing to give Steemit Inc the time needed and see what they can do for the Steemit platform going forward.

It's funny that the same people trolling are also still cross-posting on Steemit gaming the Blockchain. Irony.

"While we do not agree, nor obviously support the recent hardfork..."

I think you mean the HF about to be undertaken.

"...we did add the ability to hide posts..."

You have deprecated the purpose of Steem by this action, and proved your hostility to freedom and the decentralization of governance that belies the words of this OP, and every assertion of support for freedom you have ever made in the past. Your rhetoric clearly is nothing of relevance, except as an attempt to fool anyone stupid enough to believe what you say, as your actions directly impose censorship and complete centralization of governance imposed on your hapless subjects.

Tomorrow I will be free of you, and your base aggrandizement of wealth and power that degrades society for your personal benefit. I could not more aptly state my personal sovereign rights and freedom than by moving to Hive. May you enjoy complete ownership of every Steem that exists, or ever will - because without a market besides yourself, it will have no value at all.

Just like your words.

Bye.

You, young man, give the entire Cryptosphere a bad name! Your actions have caused more FUD concerning the adoption of cryptocurrency by the mainstream populace than any other thing, ever.

I hope you are proud of yourself! The Rebel Alliance (AKA Hive) are off to our new base.

DARKSUN.JPG

I like your kind of humor.

You're working so hard and yet all you manage to do is push us farther and farther into pro-Hive because of how vacuous this all is. You'll put the governance in the hands of people who are letting you pay them off to agree with this bullshit.

https://steempeak.com/steem/@themarkymark/steemit-inc-now-censors-posts-from-the-ui

Steemit is part of the Hive marketing team. This post is just part of the campaign to push users away. They're like the wind that blows the ships away to new lands.

Dear Steemit

By the time you read this, I will be dead.

You said words again today better left unsaid.
How can I ever believe you after being misled?

You have hearts made of lead.
Your witnesses ass cheeks are spread.

You lost a good one today because of this thread.
I had to die, because you're fucked in the head.

Suck a dick

I assume Steemit Inc. and Tron will cease promoting their ecosystems on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, and the rest of the internet as you operate competing products and obviously feel it would be unethical to promote there.

Steem will die under your leadership. Long live Hive!

The terms of service also states that ownership of Steemit will not interfere with governance.. But here we are.

Some of us who are seen as the little fishes on steemit have stayed here for the glory days of steemit and also for the bad times, relentlessly writing posts without receiving any form of attention from the big fishes on the platform.

As much as I will not take sides over this issue, I hope that power does not remain centralized on some specific individuals and group, but everyone is given adequate opportunities.
I wish everyone all the best.

Suck my dick.

ps Learn what blockchain is.

Let's go HIVE!

Great job! Sensor the competitor!

Next you'll be censoring busy.org & steampeak.com.

After all they are competitors for ad revenue!

In the meantime... Spammers & Scammers... Have fun!

https://steemit.com/spaminator/@spaminator/spaminator-stop-no-further-downvotes

Guess steemit will need to find a way to censor the comments, now.
Good ideas should win. Trying to keep your user base ignorant because you have an inferior product is no way to compete. You should be embarrassed

You’re supposed to decline payout.

And a header pic wouldn’t hurt.

They have no idea what that is 😪

More money to vote for witnesses that will overthrow community governance! It's within the plans.

lol

Justin Sun can Gargle my Mayonnaise. I'm powering down for good and you can take your authoritarian hostile takeover excuse of a community and shove it.

We have our own blockchain now, with blackjack and hookers. I'm headed to where the Sun doesn't shine, sellouts.

Steem is on its way to $0.00.. @justinsunsteemit has already proved that he is a liar as well as a chameleon. We don't believe in you. Hive on!

It’s good to know people who know nothing about steemit are in charge!

our commitment to developing our Steem ecosystem

Something doesn't sound right.

Never fear! Funds are #SNAFU!

Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one?

Yes, I've made posts to that effect on Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, 4chan and Github without being censored. And I still use those sites occasionally because others do and the companies operating them are professional enough to allow some level of dissent.

You are making a fool of yourself by pinning six posts on the trending page and banning the posts that are actually trending.

Can someone explain to me why the same posts are stuck on 'trending' permanently?
Is no one posting?

We listened to the Steem community, and we always will.

The community told you to tread lightly, respect the established witness structure, and keep prior promises regarding Steemit's stake. What you did was not that. Your actions drove people to choose between your coup and finding an alternative. Welcome to the internet. Alternatives are available.

Eventually we will put governance back in the hands of the community as soon as possible.

How benevolent. You do know that kind of power grab is why the legitimate witnesses wanted to freeze those Steemit assets temporarily during the surprise transition, right? And your actions proved ther concerns were valid.

...the best decentralized social network we all envision.

Except it's centralized under your thumb with a mystery blacklist to be updated at whose whim? Yours? Chinese government censors? @justinsunsteemit, you have allowed your wealth to deprive you of humility and humanity. Your arrogance will be your downfall, and unfortunately, you may take Steemit, and perhaps even STEEM, with it.

steempope.jpg

As your Steem Pope, I can only continue to advise repentance, and should you seek absolution, you must make amends to those you have harmed by your actions here since. You must stop giving people cause for leaving. Until them, your excommunication remains.

Sadly Hive has a mystery blacklist as well. In that respect Hive isn't any better.

That isn't a mystery blacklist, it's a public list created by strict definitions due to the actions of the new Steemit team and their supporters who staged a coup to undermine the community. Don't lie.

strict definitions

Read this posting:

https://peakd.com/hive/@scottcbusiness/airdrop-hive-sps-proposal

Those strict definitions didn't quite work out:

And no one had a say until it was too late. The proper announcement has yet to come and if there is a vote I'll vote to take anybody off the list who was no an actual @justinsunsteemit sock-puppet.

And you see what the Hive team did? Openness and opportunity for remedy. Y'know, shit the Tron team wouldn't dream of. No, they have a literal secret blacklist that points to a Chinese mystery server. Stop the rhetorical games.

Stop the rhetorical games.

I'm a free speech absolutist. Sentences like this only make me double down.

strict definitions

Read this posting:

https://peakd.com/hive/@scottcbusiness/airdrop-hive-sps-proposal

Those strict definitions didn't quite work out:

And no one had a say until it was too late. The proper announcement has yet to come and if there is a vote I'll vote to take anybody off the list who was no an actual @justinsunsteemit sock-puppet.

Seems you changed the TOS without notice, as a matter of fact you changed TOS after you blacklisted people for violating the part of the TOS that didn't exist.

Good progress centralizing a decentralized project good job!

Omg.... you are such assholes. Plenty of people have posted about moving to other sites before... narrative, whaleshares... trybe... voice...

But only Hive is censored but Justin Sun’s steemit.

🖕🏻

Look at the payout to their post, now they're using @ steemit account to upvote themselves and their ass-kissers for $350 per post

Justin can now be king of a deserted kingdom. Congrats!!

Hahaha @steemit trying to flex, but us true steemians will post about whateve... https://steempeak.com/steem/@sn0n/hive-posts-censored-and-other-steemit-bullshit

Why wouldn't you support an alternative view?
You have the Steemit blockchain with the Ninjamined stake now being Venture Capitalist fodder.
Hive provides a decentralised platform without the blurred lines of a master hand behind it.

I think you can have your reservations and also support the blockchain.

This real scenario provides insight into where Cryptos can head, how issues & disagreements can be resolved by creating new tribes.

Both scenarios have potential in my opinion. A merger with Tron, a focused centralised mind to add a marketing spin, a platform people can get behind, it could work or it could die.

The same for hive, can they create good governance, continue the commitment of developers, will new tyrants arise?

I'm looking forward to seeing how the far the "fork" in the roads split.

Making Good Progress?
More like more of the same.


A wise band once said...

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

It will be beautiful to see Steem and its price sink.

I am actually quite glad all this happened, steemit hadn't changed for YEARS other than a new average looking logo. Tbh hive is already better and maybe now Justin will improve steemit. I think sometimes a little competition is good for motivation to improve and make things better. It wouldn't surprise me if we ended up with two decent platforms instead of one half assed one no-one rly bothered doing anything with cause it had no competition. Thats my view anyways. I am excited to see how they both evolve. I already think HIVE is looking so much better than steemit had since I joined in 2017.

Too little, toooooo late.
You had 4 years...
now, I'm sorry to say: Suck it up.

Pathetic try to cover up what you did.

As soon as the community witnesses kill their witness server on steem and move to HIVE, Jsun will hardfork an instant powerdown for himself and the exchanges only, so he can dump the ninja mine for as much money as possible. He will run, get his money back and never look back.

If he doesn't, the SEC will deem steem a security, which will make it worthless. So either way, it will be worthless.

By the way, everyone will be dumping STEEM to buy more HIVE. Only noobs sell HIVE when it first enters the exchanges.

we did add the ability to hide posts that violated the terms of condition of steemit.com

9.4. Transactions. All proposed Steem blockchain transactions must be confirmed and recorded in the Steem blockchain via the Steem distributed consensus network (a peer-to-peer network), which is not owned, controlled, or operated by us. The Steem blockchain is operated by a decentralized network of independent third parties.

It is too late. Don't you get it? You had a chance to do right by the community. You were given many opportunities to explain yourself with townhalls and discussions with witnesses and the community. Nobody wanted a hard fork, nobody wanted it to end this way. But, you gave the community no choice. Now, you have to live with your own actions.

Sure, some will stay. Many are leaving. Your reputation and brand is tainted, Steem is a dead project walking. This post is 12 days too late.

I really don't like the way this is worded...

"We will support any witnesses who publicly announce their promise to secure accounts, as well as update to SF 22.5."

So, you'll support any witnesses that fall in line? Steemit as an entity was always meant to remain an unbiased third party when it came to witnesses. Using the platforms stake to push your own agenda goes completely against what Steemit was always meant to be.

"Eventually we will put governance back in the hands of the community as soon as possible."

So you're admitting that you came here like a big bad government to tell us all that the way we were conducting ourselves was wrong and needed to be forcefully changed?

It's truly no wonder why the most influential people are fleeing the ship you blew a gaping hole in, and in case you didn't already know, without good people, this social experiment was always going to fail. You've created a toxic environment that no fan of decentralization wants anything to do with. You're a shining example of why as much as we'd all like to hope, Blockchains are not immune to the corruption that money can cause...

You should truly be ashamed of yourself, but with all the money you stand to make from this, I doubt you give a shit.

What a child!! OMG!👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻

I just want to be the first here to thank you @justinsunsteemit. Thank you for fucking up so bad, that a fork was not only viable, it has the chance to do better than the original.

indeed, unless the same shit keeps happening. I hope not!

yet. I have seen drivers make worse accidents in their new used sportscars.

The guy has a different culture, a different perspective. Not that I trust it, but I'm having some curiosity.
I don't have a whales wallet I'm not having whale panic. And from my perspective steemit was not all that fair as it was. At least not to me... it's all good to see some real competition. Let's see who comes out on top in 2021.

Ah, this feels so much like democracy. Just like in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Love it. So sad I'll be migrating to HIVE.

Oh, hey a small list of people who aren't getting any Hive tokens... Bahahahaha

They are on our side now, helping us improve our Hive experience even before the launch!

so why can I not sell my steem on blocktrades?
image.png

Wow. After reading some of the comments, it seems the lines have been drawn. I was looking at this as those who go and those who stay can still be in good standings. I hope that will be the outcome. I would only wish HIVE the best of luck and I will follow all my fav people who go there. Maybe ya'll can return the favor for some of us who will play the band on the titanic role here.
~RESPECT~

Can I have some SP to continue my dream here despite the bleak outlook most have decided to go with? #SteemOn

I am soo disappointed reading theese ?"YOUR"? words .
But i will stay.
Very disappointed !
Very very disappointed !
Very very very disappointed !
I do not like split toung words.
Stop stop stop !

Another face saving post? Interesting times on the steem blockchain

Well the good news is that no one has a problem with you turning STEEM into a TRC20 now... ;)

Too little, too late. Suck a dick

Proof of NO brain.

Doing this so I can post on Hive lolol

And yes, we did add the ability to hide posts that violated the terms of condition of steemit.com, those posts are still existing in the blockchain but not showing in steemit.com website, as we need to support our content and the community's content. Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one? No. That would not be in the best interest of the community and the Steem ecosystem.

Can we talk about Tron?

You guys are blocked heads, you know nothing even whaleshares never censored posts. Damn.. You went so low.. Dirty low with this move...

Now steem fully centralized by justin sun it not good to use and community leaving on steem network and how you say steem community. Hive is the community controlled true blockchain.

Make some events.

You dumb bitches! Time to fly to #H1ve :)

So you are not planning to dump millions of Steem to the market?

Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one?

Look at the pinned post of my GAB profile. They are all links to my other profile in protest of GABs pro religious anti porn censorship.

There seem to be no real free speech social media and all you can do is choose your poison.

We will support any witnesses who publicly announce their promise to secure accounts, as well as update to SF 22.5.

Translation: We support witnesses who bend the knee to the supreme leader @justinsunsteemit. All hail the supreme leader!

steemit is now a chinese phishing site.

DO NOT LOG IN OR SEND ANY OF YOUR KEYS TO CHINA!

What a joke, you‘re a joke now.

Getting into the steemit bandwagon again after a long gap. While the world is fighting against the #covid19outbreak let's all make this awesome platform a greater success.

Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one? No. That would not be in the best interest of the community and the Steem ecosystem.

If we are actually comparing your actions to reality – yes, yes they would. In fact, they do on a common infrequent basis. One of the most rapidly shared kinds of post on Facebook and Twitter are the ones that seriously argue with great and abiding passion that fellow users should migrate somewhere else.

And anyone who has spent more than 15 minutes in a social media network knows that to be the case.

See, the solution to what you, I, or anyone else might think of as "bad speech" is "more speech," not "no speech." It's your job to make a really good argument in support of your platform which replies to the arguments which you consider to be not in the best interests of the community and the Steem ecosystem.

And honestly, it's not like they make it hard for you.

Now, there's always the possibility that you will turn around, provide excerpts of those posts, explain why you think certain pieces of content are against the terms of service, and actually make your case – but I don't expect it. You just like I don't expect the people who are advocating for Hive to explain how it is that trading one desperate for another is in my best interest as a creator.

Don't spray it in the air and tell me it's raining. That's insulting. I don't like to be insulted. I definitely don't like to be insulted when there is an absolute raft of other social media platforms to move to share my content. You should treat me, like all creators, as partners in making you butt loads of money.

Shall we try again?

Thank you for the update. I hope there will be an app for mobile users only too. Loading a site is harder to work for us plus an easy app (posting, reading, notifications) would help with a slower connection.
I wish the team a good weekend. 💕

Bullshit.

downvoted, obviously

There is a saying that goes like this: A jackass can walk a thousand miles but that does not make it a horse.

@steemitblog, I really appreciate the effort for steemian the steemit community is awesome for its writers I am happy to be a part of this helpful community thanks guys...

Greetings from Spain., I am creating a place inspired by steemit., within the 3D world of opensim., and I would like to have our experienced experience. a great thud.

I will be using both STEEMIT and HIVE in the future. I am not big enough to have to choose, so I will be posting on both blockchain. Peace all✌️🙏☯️

We are Making Good Progress

As well as the Hive. Goodbye, Justin!

Many of us are glad you’re here. Keep up the great work, and be encouraged.

Need to do instant power-downs and 75% curation rewards!
