bitcoiner - Witness Update #3 - 2016-10-07

last year

My fellow Steemians,

Welcome to my third witness update. I do these weekly on Fridays as some other witnesses do, so I may keep my followers and the community up-to-date. Hopefully, this will show that I strive to be an active and reliable witness and that I may hopefully gain your witness approval vote.

I will use @jesta's template for these witness updates as he is awesome. Also, I will be using the Pay me 100% in Steem Power option for witness updates from now on.

1. Accomplished the week of 2016-10-07

2. Upcoming projects/goals

  • Spend more time learning the Steemit.com codebase.
  • Go through more of the wish list and trying to implement them.
  • Try to allocate a bit of time for other web projects related to Steem I have in mind.
  • Continue being active on Steemit, Steemit Chat, and GitHub.

3. Thoughts from this week

Wow! What a week this was!

There were great initiatives and news to help the adoption of Steem, such as the following:

We had Steemians say goodbye to their day jobs and go all in on Steem. These include:

In addition, this week also saw many announcements from new witnesses: @bitcalm, @nonlinearone, @fyrstikken, @bacchist, @timcliff, @teamsteem, @dollarvigilante, @thecryptodrive, and @roelandp! A warm welcome to all!

With all these new projects and talented individuals, the community will definitely benefit for the better. It's an exciting time!

Finally, thanks to all who have voted me as witness. I am currently in the top 50, rank 47. It is true that with the introduction of all these great, new witnesses, my rank did go down a few ranks within the week, but I will continue to do everything I believe will be beneficial to the long-term success of Steemit. Thank you to all who trust me and like what I do. Thank you to my followers for believing in me.

Thank you!

Keep up the great work @bitcoiner!! I'm really excited to see more of the items start dropping off the wish list :)

·

Haha, it's definitely a good feeling! Thanks for the support! :)

Is anyone working on an image library that everyone could use? It would be cool to capture all the images for the day in steem and if you clicked one you could copy that link to use in your own post. It seems pretty easy but would be really helpful to writing post. I post new images every time which doesn't seem efficient.

·

Ah that is a really cool idea! It would be a visual look at activity on Steem!

That's true it would be fun to look at but also very useful to write post. It seems like you have a lot of projects but throw it on the list!

Will do!

For writing posts and including past images, what about the question of credit or permission from the original author?

Yeah that's hard. Perhaps when you add it it sends them a message to tell them it's on there. Like link back. And you remove if they don't like it. But is a link to their image ip? I think they already put it on the blockchain. I think it's just linking to something they put up themselves. Presumably they always have he power to break the original link, which they created.

Do I have to pay New York Times to link to their article? No this is same thing.
