I can’t really understand what actually is happening in steemit post rewards calculation?

I noticed the incident yesterday, but, didn’t take it so seriously. I thought I saw wrong. But, today I confirmed something terribly wrong is happening in steemit rewards calculation procedure.
So, let’s take a look into it –

yesterday this post’s potential payment was 12 dollars before 1/2 hour the payment was made.

But, when payment was made then I was paid only 9.65 USD. Same thing happened with the next post https://steemit.com/newslink/@royalmacro/newslink-zimbabwe-unleashes-new-dollar-pegged-currency-should-switch-to-bitcoin-instead

This post has : Before payout potential amount : 6 USD, after payout 4 USD only.

I've checked my other posts and got the same thing was happened :(

When this happened the fluctuation rate of steem price was less.

Now, I share my today’s observation -

  1. Look into this post : https://steemit.com/wilt/@royalmacro/what-i-learnt-today-south-africa-is-participating-in-largest-and-amp-most-advanced-hiv-vaccine-trial-program-makes-its-own
  2. One minute Before the payment made the post’s stat was : 6.19 USD potential payment
    enter image description here
  3. After payout made the post’s stat is : 3.51 USD instead of 6.19 USD
    enter image description here
  4. When this happened I check the price chart and found that steem price was increasing, not decreasing.

Anyone please, can explain it ?

Update : Same thing happened to this post : https://steemit.com/wilt/@royalmacro/what-i-learnt-today-usd31-million-hacked-from-russian-central-bank
1 minute Before potential payout is $2.17, but, paid only $1.69.
And Yesterday I made only 3 posts.

when people post too frequently they are going to lose rewards.. this has happened to me early in the beginning when I was not aware of this... I made a post that went above $1300 but when it paid out I only got around $200 so imagine my surprise lol.. but yeah limit to posting 4 times a day only or u will lose $

really ??? I actually have no knowledge about it. Great info provided my friend @doitvoluntarily.
I'll watch the situation by only posting 2/3 posts per day. thank you & Followed you :) to get further assistance from you.

@doitvoluntairly Does this posting 4 times a day apply to comments as well as full new posts? Tks

I think only blog posts will be counted not comments

Definitely comments are not taken into account.

The comments are definitely not accounted for... Otherwise, I would have stuck to zero :D

Yep, seems like a penalty for too many posts...

only 5 posts within 24 hours I made

Posting frequently can affect your curation rewards, but not your author rewards. Other people who have upvoted your post who then go on to upvote a lot will reduce their contribution to your author reward but changing the value so much with a minute to go and an increasing steem price? That doesn't make any sense. Unless the final calculation is only happening right before payout......but I'm fairly certain the reward values are more dynamic than that and update continually. I think this needs looking into.

thanks for your kind information ....... yes, I think definitely this needs looking into ...

After the 4th post the Rewards will go down...
