This post is intended to cover the server costs for SteemWorld.org and to enable me to continue my development in the future.
In case you missed the first part:

SteemWorld ~ Weekly Support ~ #1
What a week
It's hard for me to stay positive in these days. I spend nearly all of my time for the development on SteemWorld and am hardly able to pay the rent for my apartment this month. I don't want to send my collected STEEM from my recent posts to an exchange at current price levels and I'm still waiting for a price reversal to at least 1.35 USD.
The next server bills are already waiting for me in the coming weeks and I'm not sure if I can do this all for much longer. I need to change my strategy so that I'm prepared for whatever will happen in future. Time spent for posting is time not spent for working on SteemWorld, but if there is no other way I may do so. I'm no fan of living from donations from other people because that is no reliable income. I won't pay the required hardware for a witness node with money that is not mine. But don't mind, this is my problem and I will find a solution.
As always, it was a very busy week. There hasn't been a single weekend in the past months for me, but I still hope that my work will pay out on some day in future. For now I hope that BTC can hold support at the current prices and we don't need to test the 6000 again. At least it looks not too bad today:
I have been tweaking many things in my code during the week and I'm still not done with it. That's the reason why my weekly post comes a bit later this time and I need to keep it really short today. Most of the things I'm currently working on are happening in background, but I can show you a few shots of the latest UI changes here:
Liquid STEEM in Post Summary and Coming Author Rewards
SBD Debt Ratio / Liquid STEEM Ratio in Steem Info tab
The Liquid STEEM Ratio (if you should find a better name for it, please tell me) is derived from the SBD Debt Ratio. It shows us how much of a post's SBD payout we will receive as liquid STEEM, currently ~ 78% :
Only relevant columns in rewards tables
If you are an author, not a witness and not receiving beneficiary rewards, it looks like:
If you are a witness and not receiving beneficiary rewards (example top witness @gtg):
If you are not a witness but you are receiving beneficiary rewards (example @dtube):
If you are an author and witness and you are receiving beneficiary rewards, SteemWorld will collapse and you will directly go to hell my friend, because you are earning way too much STEEM. Just kidding, in that case the Benef. SP column will be hidden until I've found a solution for the non existing space. A donation might motivate me to find it faster... 😁
New settings for the 'Account Info on hover' behaviour
Reminder for SteemWorld updates
This is an important change because I realized that older browsers and even many modern mobile ones do not load the modified HTML, JS and CSS on each page visit after I made changes to the site. Especially mobile devices are caching badly to improve battery life and are just ignoring the instructions coming from my server.
Don't worry, even if I update the site on a daily basis I won't always set it to a new version as long as there is no good reason for it.
Let's come to an end...
There are many more things I could talk about here but most of them are more technically nature and are happening in background. If you should consider becoming a developer please take time for the decision and really think about what it would mean for you and your life. Programmers will always have more problems than 'normal' human beings can ever imagine... 😉
