Announcement! Steemit's Gold and Silver Community is Growing

in #steemsilvergold4 years ago (edited)

Dear SteemSilverGold members,

It has been about a week since we established this vibrant community. Our membership has now grown to 83 members, thanks to your actions and support.

I am delighted to announce that one of our newest members is Sir Knight (@sirknight), who has inspired me to start this silver and gold community. His work at Team Australia (#teamaustralia) has been phenomenal, and I am convinced that as the Ambassador of Team Australia to SteemSilverGold, he will add great value to our community.

Sir Knight stated, “I envisage that there will be many synergies between our communities which can be turned into mutually beneficial trade over coming years.”, and I fully agree with this assertion.

If we can attract talent like You (dear members) and Sir Knight, then who is there that we can not attract? However, even if we attract all of the best talent on Steemit, it would be in vain, if we do not actively further the goals (found further down this post) of this community.

It is often said that he who holds the gold makes the rules. Here on Steemit, the votes can certainly be likened to the gold. It is with more votes that we can make SteemSilverGold a very powerful and significant community here on Steemit.

Therefore, I urge you, to Upvote and Resteem quality content produced by your fellow #steemsilvergold member. There is no reason why every #steemsilvergold post (posted by a member) should not get a minimum of 40 votes, given that we have 83 members.

If you now go and look at the steemsilvergold tag, you will see that on average we are getting nowhere close to the 40. I urge you, to go now: curate, upvote and resteem members’ posts at the steemsilvergoldtag.

SteemSilverGold Logo and Weekly Members Status Report

Pawos (@pawos), one of our members, has designed a proposed logo (at the end of the post) for our community. If there are any others out there with proposed logos, you can let me know.

Also, look out for the weekly members status report done by Pawos.

Thanks for the updated post @hgmsilvergold. I'm interested in seeing the stats you've mentioned regarding up voting member posts. I suspected as much, quite a bit more views than there are upvotes. I'm typically upvoting at 50 to 100% for members of steemsilvergold, but if there is no reciprocation I would eventually change that.

No stats. I just looked through all the posts, it becomes evident that the votes are far too low. I guess that I have personally cast about 80% of my total votes for the last 3 or 4 days on steemsilvergold posts. I totally get you.

most of us are minnows and can vote only ten times a day with power. without a slider, some have to recover... btw. upvoted and resteemed.

When will I get a slider?

you need 1 million vests (little more than 480 SP).

Thanks,Im almost their.

Thanks for the update, I'll start regularly searching for steemsilvergold posts.😀

thanks. that is the way to go.

Hii @hgmsilvergold i saw you post and i enjoyed reading it, could you please have a look on my daily analysis for Gold and give me your opinion. https://steemit.com/gold/@ohamdache/6mwd5y-midday-update-of-gold-28-06-2017

Good. Let me know if you find a way.

Got the basics working, will share in a bit when finished.

Look out for the next update where your membership will be confirmed.

So many joined I'm going to have to go through each one and see who I haven't followed, great idea, I see so many post and try to respond to as many as I can, don't be discouraged it's the beginning
With that's said let's jump right into some silver news.
Right now they are smashing silver and pushing the weak hands out, it's a plan I've seen before. People pani and either won't buy out of fear or sell thinking and putting their money else where.
Now is the greatest oppurtunity to buy gold and silver, and if it drops more buy all the way down.
Stack as much as you can! I want to buy into crypto, and will but it's so hard NOT to get some silver.
Just for thoughts, silver is at 16.50, it was at 50 and will return and I believe much higher possibly 100-400 range, that's a hell of an investment!
100 silver at 50.00 will get you 5,000 to maybe at 400.00 get you 40,000.00.
And you cost now for 100? 1900.00 if that?
I have bought into crypto, defintley going to get steem, but don't let silver get away from you.
Have a great day all!

thanks. yes we are only at the beginning. this community will get much stronger. keep stacking, the big move up is coming.

Yes it is! I am proud to be a part of it and am trying to keep up with the new members. I will resteem.

thanks. it will be worth the effort.

I think so. With all the communities on Steemit this is the only one I have found that truly seems to act like a community. I guess it is because good people know the value of sound money.

Upvoted, resteemed, in the process of following all members! Fully intending on joining and being active! 🔥🔥🔥

great. look out for the follow up post that will confirm membership.

wow seems like a great idea

btw. you will find yourself now in the new members report.

Thanks pawos, an honor to be part of the community. I will keep on following other members in the group so that we can support and learn from each other

I agree, Ive tried to add all new members and try support steemsilvergold articles that are very informative, if we all did this we should be getting easily 40-50 upvotes

true, we have got to get this right.

Great work @hgmsilvergold RESTEEMED

Have a nice day : )

thanks. have a nice day too.

Thank you friend : )

Well done! Let's spread it like a virus and let more people love gold and silver. It's like casting a vote of no confidence to the governments and the FED, saying no to the non-stop printing of paper money

Thanks. It does, because it is real just like gold and silver, unlike Fed money.

Awesome news, I agree there souldnt be any reason why post on this tag would not get at least 40 upvotes, given that it is good and valuable content. Thanks for your dedication to supporting the steemsilvergold tag. Keep stacking my friend

thanks, absolutely. a fair reward to our content providers is the foundation to the success of our community.

Oh, jeez, count me in... I'm a bit of a silver bug too.
I'll add in the # to all future silver/gold content.

ok, just follow the instruction to join in the post.

[note 07/01/17] he has not even followed you.

We need to upvote and support each others posts. We cannot grow if all we are doing is adding each other and not sharing views/ideas. I am not seeing much comments on each others posts

yes. we have to to support by voting, resteeming and commenting. I believe we will get there.

Resteemed thankyou @hgmsilvergold. It's great to see the community growing so quickly! I am just about to do another round of following the new members. I have been happy to see some quality posts already in our community and some nice pics as well! Hopefully we can get the support going and up the votes a bit. I feel the pain of only having 100 percent votes though, it makes it tough to spread your votes out to everyone who deserves it. Keep up the great work on keeping the community ticking over!!

Thanks for the post @hgmsilvergold and thanks for the logo @pawos I'll be sure to use it.

I would like to join as well. I will begin following the one I don't already. I have upvoted and resteemed.
