Currently you need 1/1000 Steem power ( 0.2cents) in curation reward or you don't make anything. This is discouraging a lot of new steemians ( brought in from dollar vigilante and brenda).
We Can Fix This
Change the rounding to .0001 ( one in 10k).This will have three nice effects
- Minnows won't be discouraged those that aren't writers still want to participate. Seeing tiny curation rewards still will make them see a benefit for their voting and improve the game aspect of steemit
- Will help distribute Steem power to wider audience if they are voting they are working and should be encouraged to continue to grow heir Steem.
- Will still encourage them to power up this should help them build confidence in curating and eventually power up to improve their rewards. I think it's better to give a small reward with the ability to power it up then no award ( this is also why you start with a little Steem power when you sign up.
