Special Witness Update: My last post as a solo witness, here's why...

in witness-category •  3 months ago


Hey again, steemizens

The times, they are a changin'

I've got some big news to share. As of yesterday, I have entered into an agreement to officially convert the steem witness I have operated alone since August of 2017, into a team/committee operated witness with two other dedicated and well known steemizens.

This post officially documents the introduction of this new team for the @SirCork witness node in the blockchain.

I am thrilled and pleased to announce that I will be joining forces with the amazing @RhondaK of The Writer's Block community, the SteemShelves project and SteemHouse Publishing.

But wait, there's more!

I am ALSO excited and honored to announce that joining @rhondak and I, will be none other than @Beanz of VO.TU - The Voices of the Underground community.

As you know, I founded the @YouAreHOPE Foundation, steem's exclusive, 100% blockchain transparent, community fueled, worldwide humanitarian aid organization and the @SteemStarNetwork - the live stream at the center of the Steemiverse as well.

Therefore...

We hereby announce ourselves as your newest witness team, who will operate as completely equal peers in this group to make democratically-decided conclusions between us when decisions are required, while working together in ways which we believe will benefit the longevity of the platform, and working hard to bring valuable services and information to the platform by creating and sustaining various ways to give voices to all types of users like you.

Here are the corresponding official announcements from @beanz and @rhondak on the matter of us joining forces as "The Three Headed Beast"

That's great, Cork! You couldn't have found two smarter partners, but now, what do?

Well! Glad you asked! As of now, if you want to vote for @beanz, @rhondak and I to be one of your selected witnesses, then just register a witness vote for @sircork and you will be choosing all three of us at the same time.

If you already vote for @sircork on your witness list or via proxy, there is no required change.

If you do wish to add your vote for team @rhondak, @beanz and @sircork, then just click here and register your vote via one click and steemconnect:

Yay, with such an amazing bunch of people, I will expect some amazing things.

·

Thank you so much! We will do the work to deliver just those kinds of things! <3

It is such a privilege to be part of this team. I am so pleased that we're able to make this announcement -- I see good things ahead!

·

wowowohhooo congratulations @rhondak

·
·

Thank you, @paulag!!! And congratulations for your teamup, too! Together, we will all make a difference. :-)

Great news. Of course you had my vote many moons ago but it's fantastic to see straight shooters like beanz getting involved. Not to mention that she's the third Irish person involved in operating a witness (demotruk, paulag) and that can only be a good thing;)

·

Woot woot! Thank you for your continued and renewed support for us all!

Nice one Mr Cork and team, now you have a bit of sass on board i've had to give you my vote! :D

·

Thanks. There was definitely no sass before! :D

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!! Can I upvote this five times, please? This is fantastic news! Glad to get a couple more women in the witness ring. This kind of teamwork is exactly what we need. Resteemed, and 100% stoked!

·

Hey, as far as I am concerned, please upvote it 10 times! Thank you for your enthusiastic support! 100% stoked here as well!

·

Fantastic news, indeed! I'm so happy to be part of this. Beanz and Cork (as opposed to Cork 'n Beanz, LOLOL!) are going to be great teammates. :-)

·
·

oh my gosh!!!!! nooooo it HAS to be Cork 'n Beanz!!!! LOLOLOLOL that is the BEST thing ever!!!! hahahaha CONGRATULATIONS AND YAYYYYYY for more female witnesses :)

·
·
·

Oh dear. Don't let this spread.

·
·
·
·

hehehehehehe too late. i wrote 16 posts on them and paid $1000 each to make them trending ;)

·
·
·
·
·

ohhh! I'm gonna tell chumpycat on you!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Oh he already knows... He actually says the name was too awesome for him to flag.... So he let me sneak by!!!! 😂😂😂😂

·

I never even thought about that but yeah, aside from @patrice and @paulag, we're still some of the first.

·
·

hehhehe congratulations and welcome to the gang.

·
·

I didn't know about @paulag, thanks for the head's up! I believe @crimsonclad is also a witness, part of @followbtcnews. Love seeing more women lead on the blockchain!

·
·
·

How did I forget Crimson!! One of my all time favourite steemians. Paula is on @steemcommunity witness with @abh12345.

·
·
·
·

I did not know that! Thank you. @abh12345 is a great Steemian. Off to write them in!

·
·
·
·
·

Thank you! :D

Excellent @beanz and @rhonak you are wonderful. You have my small support.Congrats!

·

Thank you so much for that support! :-)

Congratulations for your partnership. We already supported @sircork, so now we also support @beanz and @rhondak. Greetings from Venezuela.

·

Thank you so much!

Nice decision @sircork. As many people would have it, the full meaning of TEAM is: Together Everyone Achieves More. I believe in teamwork, i believe in leveraging other people's time, effort and other resources. You have made real effort in the right direction. In no distant time, i am convinced that you will reap the rewards of working together with great minds.

·

And such great minds they are! Thank you for the warm reception!

Bravo! @beanz and @rhonak are both AWESOME 💖

·

Thank you, @thekittygirl! :-)

Oh, this is wonderful news! With three great communities combined to call on Captain Planet... Wait, wrong reference. I wish you all the best and smooth running witness.

·

@anikekirsten, I think as far as combined community building, this witness team is definitely near the top of the list. And community is the future of Steemit. It's what brings us together and holds us together. I'm so grateful for this opportunity to be part of such a great thing!

Excellent news! Couldn't think of a better team.

·

Thank you sir. I couldn't think of stronger endorsement than yours!

·

@eturnerx, thank you so much. You have long been an inspiration for me to do more and better with my time here on Steemit. Your support means a great deal.

That's a cool team. I guess I can't bitch at you anymore without going through the lovely ladies first.

·

Knowing Rhonda, if he needs to be bitched out for something, she will take care of it. ;-)

·
·
·

In fairness, we'll probably join in 😜

·

That has it's pros and cons... ;)

Hey that great alliance has been consecrated, three great people joining forces, that's fabulous. Congratulations to the new team and many successes for you all.
·

Thank you so much!

good news, so far I often ask when @beanz to be a witness, with this notice I will support you all, best wishes

·

Thank you for always encouraging and supporting me Ahmed.

·
·

I will always support you and all the people in our community, because we like a family, if we always unite and support each other then we will be strong. as small fish that together and compact they can scare the whales great

·
·
·

Lol. Well I'm not looking to scare any whales. But I do agree that the smaller members of the community are undervalued. And the more people who find some small amount of success here, the more people we can attract to help build this network. It's a pity many of the stakeholders don't realise that that is where the value comes from.

·
·
·
·

yes, if all were aware of it certainly not a dispute in the community

Right on ladies! Already have my vote, good to have you aboard 😎

·

This is probably one of the most important decisions I've ever made. I see great things ahead. It's a privilege to be in this position, and I won't forget that for a second.

I choose you as my witnessCapturesircok.JPG

·

Thank you very much!

·
·

I am still trying to give @sircork a vote as a witness. But it disappears anytime i click on it. Any other way i could do this.

·
·
·

Quit clicking on it. That is the unvote link.

Congratulations on your new team!!! What an exciting day!!

Very exciting times indeed!

I hope the partnership works out well for all three of you.

Gracias! :D

Great, three for the price of one. That's always a good deal!

·

Bonus, eh? :)

Kudos!

·

Thank you!

Great news @sircork.

I look forward to seeing more updates about what you all get up to with your witness type duties. :)

·

Thank you!

this is really a great and amzing breaking news...what a great steemit will it be

I've voted for @sircork the witness

How will "just registering a witness vote for @sircork" be voting for all three at the same time?? That makes no sense to me.

·

Hi Chelsea. Voting for us as a team, ensures the witness vote held by the sircork witness should it reach a top 20 voting position is decided upon in any given hardfork election by the three of us, with a quorum amongst us for how we as a team decide to render our hardfork vote... if we reach the top 20 to vote to begin with. In the meantime, the related projects we run will all work together to serve the community with various outlets for their voices beyond the blogs into the ecosystem.

·
·

You're beginning to resonate with me on this. But I still prefer doing individual votes

·
·
·

This is an individual vote. Just like voting for Buildteam, curie, ocd-witness, any of the three main spanish community ones, crimson and followbtcnews, paulag and abg12345 or any other witness team that cooperates to operate a steem blockchain witness server.

·

·
·

I get it now. My skull is a bit thick at times

·
·
·
·
·

That's okay I haz chizelz

·
·
·
·
·
·

Good chizel set

Oh awesome, what a collabo! I see us soaring high

Amazing already. Wow. This is gigantic force from the stable of witness categories. Thank you @SirCork for this announcement. Am too sure you guys will be a great force together. As you know, 1 is 10000 and 2 is much more and even 3 will be too much.

Best of luck man... Happy I am.
