😉 Requesting a bang (for steemit!) 😉

The duckduckgo search engine has a keyword feature they call "bangs" , they're basically shortcuts for searching specific sites and tools right from the duckduckgo search box (or address bar, if they're your default search provider) .

I already use duckduckgo for searching steemit posts, so I figured why not apply for a bang specific to steemit.

</center>

If this is accepted, anyone will be able to type `!steemit stuff and things` into your address bar and they'll end up at the duckduckgo search results for just the steemit domain.

This can be done manually already, but it'd be nice to save some keystrokes on something I do regularly anyway - and we get a sort of bonus advertising within the duckduckgo <a href="https://duckduckgo.com/bang">bang index</a> . 

I don't see why they wouldn't add it, they've already accepted similar proposals for much smaller sites and sort of similar sites (like medium).

### Fingers crossed!

Awesome outreach! That's the target audience we need! People unplugged from the giant overreaching google, and ready to try radical new things like decentralized transparent social network.
