I @dhavey had the pleasure to interview @felixxx one of the community witness also one of the Germany steem.camp organizer. It was awesome interviewing him because I learnt a lot. During one of our talk, @felixxx said he is working tirelessly towards the success of the forthcoming Germany steemcamp. Germany first steemcamp is going to be great!
@felixxx~Thanks for having me 😃
@dhavey~How did you first hear about steemit and what made you decide to join?
@felixxx~I found steemit in June 2016 and I can not remember how I got here exactly ☺
When I saw that people were getting paid to post, I had to try for myself.
@dhavey~How would you describe your experience on steemit so far?
@felixxx~It has been a rough ride.
I have seen many people come and go.
Sometimes I am very optimistic about the future of Steem, sometimes not so much😃
@dhavey~What has been your biggest achievement since you joined steemit?
@felixxx~good question ...
Now that I come to think about it, I still have not achieved much
@dhavey~Do you have an endgame in mind with steemit, if so could you elaborate?
Since I have no influence on the direction Steemit Inc. decides to take this blockchain, my plan is to lean back and enjoy the ride.
@dhavey~How do you see the flagging war affecting the future of steemit?
@felixxx~Flags are absolutely necessary.
With a different reward curve ( n^x or somewhere close to like it used to be ) it would make much more sense, though.
When linear rewards were introduced, it changed the way flags work fundamentally.
@dhavey~Can you tell your role as a witness?
@felixxx~I am mainly in it out of curiosity.
As a witness I try to spend my little income to support a variety of people.
I believe this blockchain ( or any crypto currency, really ) works best if it is distributed well and widely.
I supported a Croatian rally driver, a Algerian crypto Miner, A Danish around-the-world cyclist, steemworld, steem.camp ...
I operate @deutschbot and have supported the German language community with it for 18 month.
I do a lot of small projects and try to help out where I can.
I do not have a big project like some other witnesses, though 😃
@dhavey~Is there any project you have at hand now or you are working on one?
@felixxx~My main focus is on steem.camp right now.
@dhavey~What is the biggest mistake new users make when joining steemit?
@felixxx~Powering down 😁
@dhavey~Do you have any other thing you are doing apart from steemit?
@dhavey~Can you tell us?
@felixxx~I'd rather keep that private.
@dhavey~Can you tell us more about the first steem.camp coming up in Germany?
During steemfest 2.0 in Lisbon I discussed a lot of ideas and I ended up agreeing to help organize a camping event for Steemians.
Most of us are German so we decided to keep things simple and organize the first one in Germany.
We will publish an FAQ soon, which should explain most details ...
@dhavey~Who are the people that are qualified to attend or it is just for anyone?
@felixxx~Anyone can attend, we only sell a limited number of tickets, though.
@dhavey~Can you tell us the location for the steemit.camp in Germany and the date?
@felixxx~22nd till 26th of August 2018 near Fulda
It isn't far from the FRA international Airport and we offer rideshare opportunities.
@dhavey~What is the purpose and aim of the Germany first steem.camp?
@felixxx~To create a nice atmosphere for Steemians to meet each other.
@dhavey~Who are the organizer of the meet-up?
@felixxx~We will publish a post soon, where we introduce ourselves.
We are still looking for new members to the team btw😉
@dhavey~If you could vote for any witness(not yourself) who would it be and why?
@dhavey~If you could give advice to all new members on how to be successful on this platform what would it be?
@felixxx~My advice would be to look for likeminded people and support them.
This includes meetups.
@felixxx~Thanks for having me.
