RE: The Guiding Mission, Vision and Values of Steemit, Inc.

in #steemit5 years ago (edited)

Hi @ned,

I am @edprivat, a musician that has been active on steemit for more than a year now.
I am also in charge of the curation for @artzone that you can come check it out if you want, we've just reached 10k followers not so long ago, and has been a driving force on this platform by actively helping artists, musicians, producers,painters, and digital artists.
I am also a Musicoin global ambassador and active on Choon.

I was performing at the Steemfest this year with other artists @Yidneth, @katrina-ariel , @greencross, and the @steembirds that you already know.

Music is an art that is universally appreciated, and can be felt by everyone, across all class, all races, and age.
This is a tool that can get us one step closer to hopefully one day mass adoption, I've witnessed first hand the incredible impact that @dsound had on the steemit community, attracting real talent with skills, expertise, passion and dedication, maybe not "Instagram celebrities", but a lot of key players active on the blockchain like @ftlob, @d-vine, @musicvoter, @jeffleinwand, @grizzle, @heaterville, @theomgbrand, @theturtleproject, @isaria, @soundlegion, @avesa, @atomcollector , @termitemusic , @kayclarity, @darrenclaxton, @newenx, @alexworld, @cinelonga, @melissakellie, @vachemorte ,@laritheghost, @gjart, @nakedverse, @whymonkey, @krazypoet, @djlethalskillz , @paintingangels , @jonmagnusson, @soundwavephoton, @taphophilia , @wolfnworbeikood, @jeffandhisguitar, @davidfar, @samprock , @beats4change, @rant-vegra, @elainefaye, @pennsif, @onemedia , @ivan.atman , @kryptoe and I am forgetting so many more that post daily creating amazing content, quality products that have a proven record of selling music and performing with AAA players,, this is the type of production value that you cannot underestimate, and should be cherished.

As a guitarist yourself, you should understand that most professional musicians, people making a living of their work don't have the luxury to dedicate their time to a platform that is not profitable anymore, this is a cut-throat world out there, and we witnessed lots of music related platforms crashing and burning due to bad decisions.

I understand that the delegation was never meant to last forever, but we would have all appreciated a better communication, and maybe discussed with the community prior to doing so , talk with @prc its creator, to find a short term and long term solution.

Right now I am ending up running after whales across Discord and pitching like a salesman for their support, I don't have a multi million dollar company so I probably don't understand the intricacies of the business, however I aspire like everyone else to build a healthy community and company through quality music, and I don't think this matter should have been handled so lightly.

I hope we can find an arrangement, and maybe get a support for a short period of time and allowing us to find more investors. 3 months of delegation will be for example enough.
Thanks in advance!

Totally agree Ed! As much as we would all love to dedicate many hours a day to crafting text/image based content for Steemit as musicians the work that goes into our craft should also be nourished on the platform.

There are many fantastic initiatives and competitions such as yours and @OpenMic plus many more however musicians tend to exist on a small income and dsound had become really important to them.
The last thing we want to do is drive this talent off the platform so here is a chance for you to do the right thing @ned for the benefit of everyone. Please put any differences and feelings you may have to one side for the sake of the independent musicians on Steemit.

In time of war, the first to exit the country are always the "brains" and then the artists. People start fighting when there's no one left to entertain them.
So I am being a bit dramatic, or am I?

I think you are allowed to be as dramatic as you want Ed. This is a serious issue that could have long lasting ramifications.

It is quite troublesome, I've been contacting tons of whales, I will continue to do so , hopefully we can get back our 1millions SP
Well otherwise I am out of idea
THIS is awesome btw well done!

Spot on, most of the brains left in late 2017. The few that remain are just standing around like me, watching the dumpster fire blaze on and begin to peter out...

I am actually a big fan of your brain and your rants, so I don't know what to think of the fact that you agree with me, I think I need to meditate on this for a while.

watching the dumpster fire blaze on and begin to peter out

we are the dumpster of the internet indeed

Thank you for the kind remarks. I don't think our agreement is indicative of much more than being awake, observing and having more than two brain cells between us to see such obvious inanity right in front of all of us.

Okay, maybe you got your own two brain cells, I don't mean to insult you or sell you short, but I figured it out and I'm pretty sure it only took me my one remaining brain cell to do it.

This place is full of "Yes Men" so I always love people asking the harsh questions or answering them, even if it hurts a little.

Not taken personally, always assume that you are speaking to Tweedledum or Tweedledee, in other word, that most people's intellect is below average.

That's an assumption I've learned to live with but I don't have to like it! :)
