good-karma witness update - 7th June, 2017

in witness-category •  6 months ago

Hello Steemian friends,

This is a witness log that will give community brief update about my latest project works.

Summary: eSteem releases, SteemPoll development, Translation of eSteem and reward contributors, Witness update...

In-depth

  • Over last few weeks, eSteem had major improvements (Scheduled posts, Bandwidth/Traffic saver, etc.) as well as bug fixes. Work on v1.4.6 is underway and thanks to all who is reporting issues, suggestions to our github to further improve the app and their experience. Desktop wallet app and Web wallet apps are in development, soon to be revealed more information on feature set and release. Desktop app development slowed down last week, because I concentrated on SteemPoll, decided to release desktop app step by step only with ready to use features. Hope to do pre-release within few days.

  • Published beta improvements of SteemPoll at http://beta.steempoll.net , project is moving better and more focused direction. Thank you for @andrarchy, @arhag and many others who is giving their feedback and suggestions on future improvements. Quite excited about where this project is headed...

  • Translation of eSteem and future Steem apps - eSteem translations team is growing and different languages are simultaneously being translated. Come and join us if you want to volunteer and help us grow as well as get some reward. Amazed to see well over 160 people contributing translation, proofreading, and over 40 languages are ready to go with next release.

  • Witness good-karma running HF18 (0.18.1) and continue producing blocks. I have my backup servers running HF19 for testing purpose. Witness parameters APR set to 0% to help pegging of SBD, price feed bias 0%. Registration fee is 0.3 STEEM due to recent price jump on Steem, will consider lowering it even more soon.

  • All previous witness update posts can be found on my blog or here https://steemit.com/created/good-karma for easy access and reading.


That's all for now, thank you for reading quick update and continuing to support. Be sure to vote witness and follow me @good-karma.

Your ever well-wisher,
Feruz

thaks you very much. that is nice work and great project. I am very interested in you. you are indeed provide useful program and beneficial to many people.

Can't wait for the wallet apps.

Thanks for all your hard work!

Thanks's for all this work it's good to have someone putting in all this effort to help everyone here! Do you think there would ever be an option in the future to store STEEM in a desktop wallet and it collect STEEM POWER? I guess it would be kind of like staking.

·

Your Steem Power already staking and receive interest :) yes and desktop app would let you control that better...

I really appreciate your post is very special, I have long wanted like you but until now I have not can either my experience or my lack of knowledge but I will continue to learn how this steemit to be so easy, I am sure if I continue to learn I Surely can, and since I see your posts my motivation is getting higher, thanks for you have become my motivator,

Wow, you convinced me ;) I'm voting you and of course, ​i give my upvoting at you. I hope you can be a star

@good-karma, Just found your page, i love your work , keep it up!! followed and voted <3
-cheers @brado

I was about to work a post to @good-karma regarding the heavy data usage of the app like compression for the images because the app drains my data like no other app. I hope to notice the improvements on this area because the app is great but in my country mobile data is very expensive. Thanks for the update.

·

Hi @epico, Did you know we now have Bandwidth/Traffic saver feature?

You can go to Settings page and disable Fetch images and app will save mobile data. It will not download post images when you open any post, you can manually tap on image to download it. It should save a lot of your traffic and gives you possibility to save your data usage. Check it out and let me know how it works...

·
·

I'll go change the settings right now. Any compression for images thought for future updates?

·
·
·

I have some thoughts on Compression for images, still nothing significant to implement it. But it is on my todo list, will keep in mind to improve this area ;)

@good-karma, I really appreciate your wonderful contributions to make steemit user experience good. However, I still have trouble with the esteem app. Since the first day I downloaded the app, I've not been able to upvote anyone. I use an android phone (samsung galaxy S4) and not sure if the problem is peculiar to android phones. Please, let the developers know. My special interest now is in the steempool app . It's an app that I would like to be using from time to time. Upvoted, resteemed this post and have voted you as my witness. Cheers.

·

Hi Mary, I found that some users had issues and for some people it helped to reinstall app for some it helped to just restart app. But I am working to get next release out soon that should address all these issues. If you want to beta test app before its released, please join: https://steemit.chat/channel/esteem and ping me there. Thank you for your support and patience... :)

·
·

Hi. Good-Karma. I reinstalled the esteem app twice before writing that I'm facing this challenge. It didn't help. Now, I'll use.the link to join for the beta test app. Thanks a lot!!!

Could you share screenshot of error messages if any?

·
·
·
·

A couple of weeks ago, I was still seeing those error messages, but now that has been taken care of. Many thatnks to my witness, @good-karma.

·
·
·
·

Today, for the first time since I downloaded the app, it's no longer showing any error messages. Here a screenshot of a post that I was able to upvote a few minutes ago,

·
·
·
·
·

Good to know issue is gone 😊

·
·
·
·
·
·

Same here😊. Thank you for the good work.

·
·
·
·

Alright, I will. I've not used it for some time now. Let me get my private keys, log in and then send a screen shot.

·

I own the same model. And the same thing happened to me at first. The only thing you have to do is restart the phone.

Upvoted and witness voted, great post and thanks for your contributions!

Thank you. Great contribution in steemit world.
ps: need option to compress picture on eSteem to save more bandwidth

·

Since last release we already have Bandwidth saver feature, go to Settings page and disable Image fetching. It won't load images automatically within post when you open any post and you can manually load image by tapping on placeholder, which should save a lot of traffic. Let me know if it works...

·
·

It works. Thank you.
But still, I suggest you to consider to add an option to compress picture when we create a post. Because most pictures in smartphone are HD. 😁

·
·
·

Yes I have it in longer term todo list... :)

·
·
·
·

Ill wait you next update. Keep it up. 👍👍☝

Thank you for the update, you do great work for the community and I am happy I support you for witness. You earn your spot man.

Can't wait for the wallet apps! Developments like that will only make Steem more popular and increase demand!

I downloaded the win32 eSteem just a couple of hours ago. Many thanks!

Thank you kindly

·

If you can help out with testing, I think we can make it this Friday... ;)

·
·

Why not just tell me how. I am not that geeky but very quick at learning. Just show a guide and it is done.

·
·
·

Please join https://steemit.chat/channel/esteem or message me there... Once I have some updates I will send you APK to install on your device and test it...

@good-karma What is the practical difference in usage between steemit.chat and discord? What are their most optimal uses for the most fulfilling experience on Steemit, would you say?

·
·
·
·
·

Discord has built-in calls and steemit.chat is more for messaging. I don't use discord daily but I do check every now and then.

·
·
·

Nice job man! thanks for posting this. Keep up your good work =) Upvoted!

Being new to Steemit, I don't understand all the importance of what you are doing. But I can see you have been very busy adding to the value of Steemit.
Thank you for your tireless effort. With people such as yourself. Steemit will only grow.
You have my witness vote.

Thanks for the update @good-karma. Would've voted for you if i hadn't already done so. Especially Esteem is one of my favourite "steem add0ns"

Thank you for your support. I really want to help you in any ways.

Thanks for all your generous contributions to the platform.

Such a great contributor to the community, good to have you as a witness.
Keep it up.

Wow, your new project is so cool, you are a great worker.

You are perfect for witnesses.

Upvote & Resteem ^_^

You got my upvote, good-karma how do you link up with people that are helping via chat room? or is it all post based? If your looking for extra coders to help out I'll contribute.

I am interested if i can use paypal to buy steem in the future?

·

That would be great addition indeed... We will see how things will develop but I have some ideas how to make it easy ;)

Looking forward to the wallet apps. Wish I hadn't signed up to https://www.cryptonator.com now. :-(

Upvoted and witness voted! Love from Pakistan :)

Awsome, im looking forward, to ge it installed!! hope to get it sooner than later!!!

That's a nice update, keep on doing a great job. I wish all the best to you

Thanks for all your contributions to steemit.

Hellow @good-karma I followed you, so I read all your stuff I like, so I chose it. Unfortunately, my minnow vote is not worthy of you. I have tried to shift my subject to see if I am getting a bit of charm. Hmmm one shows $ 3.50 and one today has reached $ 9 maybe we need to understand our audience here. Look at them as consumers. What are they hungry Maybe, I keep trying new corners.

Nice... Upvoted!

Is account safety as high as through the normal website?

Great work keep going !

I ask to dear @good-karma, Until today I have not been able to use my feruz M. esteem application using hp android brand samsung galaxy A3.
