Holiday from 24th May - 2nd June

in #steemit3 years ago

Hello everyone,
Just sending a quick notice that I am going away on holiday 24th and will be away until 2nd June.
What? Another holiday? I know haha. Crypto earnings has been good to me.
During this time I will have limited access to my computer and emails meaning that if anything goes wrong or you need to contact me, please be patient as I might take longer than usual to get back to you.

Everything will be running as normal, but in case anything goes wrong I won't be able to assist until I am back from my holiday. Due to this I suggest not using my bot until after2nd June, however the service will be running as usual so you can use it if you choose to do so.

If anything goes wrong, simply send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as I am able to.
email: [email protected]

P.S I am speaking to a couple of devs willing to work with me on optimizing my bot to support investors and to make sure we never see another failed transaction. I've put that on hold until I get back from my holiday, I'll post updates whenever I get there!

I'm leaving in 2 days, so please let me know if you have any questions before then.

Thanks for your continued support.
Kind Regards, UpvoteWhale.

A missed bid of 0.10 on https://steemit.com/resteem/@rentmoney/re-rentmoney-free-up-vote-followers-appreciation-promotion-12-20180708t211214300z

You can upvoted this comment instead of refunding if that is easier for you.

No problem! Upvoted your post.

Your bot missed a couple of the upvotes I sent to other peoples comments.

0.023 sbd For
https://steemd.com/tx/cd97809914d1774259ca4befa7c393ea75c7c4af

0.045 sbd X 2 For
https://steemd.com/tx/7978b37bc66b1f619a28ccaae69e21204920e83d

So about 0.11 sbd total. If the bot don't show up by the time you read this comment You can upvote this comment instead of sending refund if you like. What ever is easiest for you.

Couldn't do the full 0.22 SBD upvote so I sent a small refund too so it adds up.
Thanks for letting me know!

Perfect ... nice doing business with you as always !

HI Rabiagilani,
Sorry about that, upvoted this post with 25%.

Kind Regards UpvoteWhale.

Hi
An upvote was requested for my post: https://steemit.com/india/@shortshots/unique-articles-about-the-taj-mahal-tells-us-about-the-woman-who-inspired-its-creation
But no upvote received and second payment sent, but still no upvote.
Please upvote my post and please refund the second payment.
Thanks

Hello shortshots,
I've refunded both payments for you. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thank you very much.

Hi there.. Why are most people complaining.. Anyway enjoy your time :)

Hello cryptoqueen.
Simple reason, the people who are happy with the service don't comment. Those who have something that isn't working comment so I can have the issue resolved. Sadly it does not look good in terms of advertising the service but it works in making sure everyone is happy.

Kindly refund me, i sent 0.1 sbd and you missed to upvote me.

Hi Jamil,
Sorry about that, I sent you a refund with a bit extra! :)

Thank you for your support. Have a nice day!

@upvotewhale you were flagged by a worthless gang of trolls, so, I gave you an upvote to counteract it! Enjoy!!

Hi,
thank you for that. Appreciate it! :)

Hey @upvotewhale plz upvote comment me back I sent 10SBD I have no money I invest all money
https://steemit.com/mgsc/@sundram/white-to-move-2018-06-29-05-24-52

Please show me the transaction where you sent me 10 SBD, I cannot find any transaction where you've ever sent me any money.

This is a scam, they said the same thing to us

If you think it is a scam, please provide me with the proof that I was sent 10 SBD.
I'd gladly return it, however I fail to see any transaction sundram has ever had with me.

Before you call someone a scam, do some bloody research. Sundram has never once sent me a single payment.

Was saying he was a scammer, not you @upvotewhale.

Ah, sorry about that. Misread the situation. Thanks for explaining! :)

bro why you sent 10 sbd to upvotewhale. its 100% vote is about 0.3$ and very profitable

Hey @upvotewhale ,I really like your services. i found you one of the best bot .Hope you will continue this in future.

Thank you for your kind words.

Hello @upvotewhale I sent u 0.1$ but you didn't upvote me and didn't refund me whts problem here?

Hi Prabhdeep,
I replied to your email, please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.

Hello,
I've now sent you a refund, sorry for the inconvenience. In the future please send me an email at "[email protected]". That way I'll see it straight away so I can fix any issues that may occur.

Thank you for your support.

Hi there Redencion,
Yeah seems to be a major outage occur on most of the RPC nodes which caused a lot of transactions to be missed. I've now sent you a refund!

Thank you for your continued support.

Pls resolve this problem . It waisting our time as well as yours.

I sent a fully detailed reply to you in the email. But in short, I am working on a solution. Hopefully I can have this resolved once and for all.
Please provide your feedback on the solution I've proposed in the email.

I sent 0.1 sbd to you . I think you will vote me.

Hi,
Sorry about that, there's been some huge issues with the RPC nodes the past week. I've now refunded your transaction.

Please let me know if I can help with anything else.

@upvotewhale I didn't get your response till now.
Please see my concern. :)

Hi sumn!
Refund has now been sent. Thanks for your patience :)

Your bot missed another vote on me on https://steemit.com/newbiegames/@rentmoney/3ydtyp-promote-me-contest-winner-new-contest for bid amount 0.115

https://steemd.com/tx/aac845f99f78e9daaf16ee4cb8b376d725455433

There might be some sorta error in your bot because when I look at Steemd it shows as some of the bids that people are placing are going receiving votes while some others are not.

Yeah, it's the RPC nodes that are very dodgy at the moment, constantly having downtime. The problem with my bot is that it uses a streaming service to get the transactions, which means that if the RPC node goes down, it'll take up to 5 minutes before my bot switches to a new RPC node.
And if multiple RPC nodes are down, then it can take a long time before it manages to get an RPC node that is up and running which means lots of missed transactions.

I am working on improving the bot to use transaction history instead to get check for new transactions as opposed to streaming new transactions. This is sadly taking a lot longer than I had hoped.

I will be making an official post when it is released, could take another month or two before it's up and running, but I'm hoping for less. Until then, there is unfortunately not much I can do other than to refund missed transactions.

I refund all transactions that are missed if you let me know about it. Sadly going through the list of transactions everyday to check for missed transactions is incredibly time consuming. So please continue to send me a message like you have done if a transaction is missed and I'll be sure to send a refund.

P.S refund sent.

Thanks for your continued support.

Sounds reasonable to me.

I will continue to use you service and if one is missed I will notify you as you suggested.

I will keep an eye out for your new post. Thanks for the quick response and refund.

Hi I sent you 0.05 and I have not received your vote https://steemit.com/sexual/@caroma/educacion-sexual
I would appreciate your answer

Hi Caroma,
Sent you a refund now! :)

thanks .. I would like to use your services I like the responsibility you have with your Estemian brothers, and things as they are clarified deserve respect

I always try to be as transparent as I can. I think trust is the most important thing when it comes to business and I hope I bring that to the table.

As always, any questions you can always email me at [email protected]

I sent 0.078 SBD for voting my post https://steemit.com/infancia/@eldanicrake/sobre-la-teta-los-mundiales-de-futbol-y-los-si-condicionales-del-apego-infantil It's 5 hours over, still I don't get any upvote. Please return my SBD.

Also I sent you an email to [email protected] and I have no answer

Hi eldanicrake,
Apologies that you had to wait. I do unfortunately have a life and don't spend all my time in front of my computer waiting for messages.
I have sent you a refund now.

Hello. Today, after several successful upvotes, I was not upvoted on this:
Transfer 0.200 SBD to upvotewhale https://steemit.com/pt/@ronaldoavelino/7-abrindo-pacotes-final
Could you check what happened? Thank you.

Hello,
Sadly this does happen sometimes that transactions are missed. I've gone ahead and sent a refund to you for the missing amount.
If this does happen in the future the easiest way to get a hold of me is to send me an email at [email protected]

Otherwise you did the correct thing sending a reply this way.

Thank you for your continued support.

The bot SHOULD be up and running 24/7. But as you've noticed sometimes transactions are missed due to RPC node issues. But otherwise the bot should be working 24/7.
