HF21/HF22: Back in the Game! Let's Take Steem to the Next Level?
![steemup!.png](https://ipfs.busy.org/ipfs/QmURUg7V8dGBuajxiKu1Rz6nw8WgwuUJhq5zmcmwr912RQ)

Okay I'm feeling somewhat confident again after seeing the effects of the EIP taking place. Time to come back home! And yes, rest assured that my witness setup is secured and updated accordingly, as always. Thought I'd only punch-in my attendance card in a larger post like this. 

# So where have I been?

You likely don't care, but I've actually barely been away since 2016. It's just that I haven't been engaging on the platform as often as I used to for quite some time now. I was emotionally distressed about the whole EIP shebang, before and even after managing to help get it through into the HF21 plan a few months ago.

# Downtime.

Dealing with skeptics and getting the flak for what I think is likely a breakthrough for Steem wasn't a fun experience at all. And there were seemingly so many of them against so few of us. Could it be that I was very wrong about the things I thought I was very right about? Was my ego standing in the way? Maybe I'm just a stubborn buffoon.

That was when I began my descent into self-doubt. Being stuck in a place between certainty and uncertainty is probably the most frustrating kind of mental paralysis. I couldn't bring myself to Steem at all. I was also entirely aware that I may be suffering from the [Dunning-Kruger](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect) effect. The EIP is almost like trying to make a heap of metal fly in the air before it was even invented after all.

It was a dilemma. And then I thought at one point.. what about the skeptics of the EIP? Why do they seem equally as confident in their arguments, if not more than I could ever be about my own? Dunning and Kruger smiled. I took no comfort in finding out that some peers have lost interest in Steem along the way.

If only there's a way to truly map out the nuances of our worldviews so we can understand each other. And perhaps make better decisions. I wanted to be wrong and I would change my mind anytime. But I really failed to find any convincing counter-arguments. What I found was mostly less than airtight reasoning and analogies taken too far. From my point-of-view, nothing else came close to @trafalgar's clarity on the subject matter.

# Rage against the machine.

There are many innovators who try to build *around* blockchains such as Steem. We've been seeing projects popping up, leveraging our infrastructure. But what if some of us are really only concerned about fundamentals? There's no choice then but to deal with core protocol changes and inevitably ruffle some feathers. 

Scalability issues aside, the first step is really just the EIP, something which should've been tried and tested on Steem ages ago. We could've been in a very different place now if it works. But better late than never, I suppose. So here we are in the midst of it, much thanks to everyone who has taken the time to listen, develop, test, and deploy.

<sub>It's a conspiracy.</sub></center>

# A New Steem?

It feels good to see more community members coming together to make the platform a better place after the recent hardforks. If you're seeing more accounts turning into curation, that's indeed the EIP at work. Sure, the way the reward pool works is not exactly an "equal" opportunity for all kinds of user behavior anymore, just like how Bitcoin doesn't reward all kinds of mining results. But I think we're now damn close to becoming a functional stake-based content discovery and rewards platform. For the very first time in Steem's history. Probably too early to call it, but I'm somewhat optimistic.

<sub>The 100% real secret truth behind #NewSteem.</sub></center>

# The tipping point.

There's still a lot of work ahead in changing the overall behavior of the network, which has been dysfunctional for so many years now. But at least we're no longer fighting against the grain of a misaligned economy.

Loosely speaking, a functional economy is like one with a positive feedback loop. A dysfunctional one is an economy with a negative loop. I view the EIP as a switch in economic modality.

To better understand this point, imagine an economy that -1.0%s itself and another one that +0.01%s itself in every turn. Iterate that over many turns and we can arrive at either heaven or hell. It's a very loose way to talk about it, but I hope you get what I mean.

Even though the one with the positive loop in the example above is lower in effectiveness than the negative one, one being |+0.01|% and another being |-1.0|%, both economic systems remain to operate in opposing forces. I'm only bringing this up because there seems to be an underestimation of what the EIP could do. It's actually a whole world of difference. Our economy is now directed into a positive loop instead of a negative one. It's now self-correcting. That's the hypothesis of the EIP, at least to some of us anyway.

# To recap, the economic changes are about:-

<center>![Reward Pool (3).png](https://ipfs.busy.org/ipfs/QmPKTxhQ4MLSyA9X2nmWcZ7zwdaY4JQvafaWerdoo3UiVC)
</center>

- Acknowledging the fact that voters would become increasingly dishonest as we introduce monetary rewards under a naive economic system (more costly to be honest, less costly to be dishonest). Honest voters had been losing out too much in #OldSteem, being rewarded 4 times lesser than dishonest voting. If you started off on Steem with 1000 SP just like someone else, you would end up with 1150 SP at the end of the year being an honest voter, while the other person would end up with 1600 SP instead for doing the total opposite of what you're doing. This disparity grows larger and larger as the years go by. More and more voters (especially larger stakeholders who bought-in) would over time, learn to be dishonest as well. This is how we ended up with an overall content indifferent social media platform, which is generally boring and uninteresting. This leads to less total time spent on the platform on a global level. That's bad for business.

- Acknowledging that all the successful social media platforms out there work the way they do because honest voting behavior is inherent in their nature, as there are very few economic incentives to behave otherwise. So it'd be wise to ride on the effectiveness of the social media framework since it's the world's #1 activity right now, which is why Steem's economic design needs to render honest voting more at least as favorable as dishonest voting. The point here is to effectively lower the cost for doing something that achieves the better outcome. For example: if the eco-friendly choice is still way more costly than the eco-unfriendly choice, guess what's likely going to happen? And what happens when both choices cost the same? Eco-friendliness will likely become the new norm. ***So in Steem's case, one of its fundamental problems is the cost between honest and dishonest voting behavior.***

Now that the EIP has been put into motion, there's a better chance that we'll arrive at the tipping point where it's economically more or less the same between honest and dishonest voting behavior. Learning and knowing that honest voting behavior leads to better outcomes for our platform, more and more users / investors will likely begin to tip over and favor honest voting behavior over time, becoming the new status quo. Because why not? It's how the platform ought to be utilized. 

Social media is a technology that we use to interest each other, connecting points-of-interests, ranking interesting posts, etc. Interests makes interests, and that's how we end up with an interesting platform that sustains and generates interests for our interesting community and interesting currency.

Did I say interesting?

But before we get there, curation (which includes downvotes) would have to happen in sufficient force to keep the #NewSteem momentum going before settling on the desired equilibrium. Or else we'd likely relapse back into #OldSteem and end with the same old thing as before, if not worse.

Before EIP: Steem, Disarrayed.
After EIP: Steem, Defined.
</sub></center>

# But downvotes are bad.

Just like cholesterol is bad? Not nearly as bad as bidbots that work hard to undercut Steem's value all the time though. Sure, downvotes can be abused just like anything else, which is why the EIP has a limit of 25% free downvotes per day. It's not a necessary evil. It's a necessary measure for Steem to better express itself and arrive at a better aggregation of our subjective evaluations. We've already learned that barely anyone uses their downvotes when it costs them their upvotes.

Now, imagine a hypothetical trending page that is truly unforgiving like a Dark Souls game. A place where voters hold everything up to some extremely high standard. Imagine what kinds of content would survive? It can only be stuff that are so super interesting and so valuable, so much that they'd even transcend the most nitpicky bastards on the Internet. It's vague, but I think the bulk of us will know when we see it. 

We are nowhere near there yet, of course. So much damage has been done with a dysfunctional economy over the past couple of years. But things are really starting to look better this time around with the economic changes in effect. It'd be great if we can get ready for the potential bull-run of 2020 that may come along with Bitcoin's halving event. That's our next big chance. If it ever comes. We can only prepare.

So don't take it personally if I'm downvoting your stuff. It doesn't matter if you're a friend or a supporter of my witness position. I try to be impartial and I just want what's best for Steem. A platform and currency that improves in value is much more important than having a degraded content discovery and rewards platform that barely anyone finds interesting.

<sub>Even Sun Tzu looked like he wrote about #NewSteem.

# The art of change.

Bidbotting is a secondary market where people are able to effectively buy discounted Steem perpetually. This sabotages the primary market, leading to a sustained devaluation of our currency and platform. I have no idea why they're still being defended until this day even in #NewSteem. It doesn't make any economic sense to be paying people to promote their posts. It's [(free) market failure](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Market_failure).

Now is really the best time to start turning the tide of the game. Bidbots and such are understandable practices before the EIP as there's a 4x difference in returns compared to honest curation, but there's just no good reason to continue maintaining the worst of #OldSteem habits anymore. It's hard to change before, but it's much easier now.

# Steem, fast and slow.

When it comes to thinking about Steem's economy, it may be oddly useful to put yourself at the center of the blockchain like it's your brain. The human mind deals with thinking in two modes: [fast and slow](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thinking,_Fast_and_Slow). Just mere honesty is enough to tell that pre-HF21 Steem was mostly about being fast. It was what the economy favored. It was how the Steem brain was fed. In turn, it was how it largely operated. #OldSteem encouraged spammy behavior with its misaligned incentives.

My own yardstick for what I find to be the most sensible posting frequency comes from [Pewdiepie](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-lHJZR3Gqxm24_Vd_AJ5Yw). He's been averaging 1.15 videos per day since 2010. One good post a day. It's arbitrary, but it kinda makes sense if you think about it. Even then, I consider that to be on the faster side of things.

So yeah, the EIP provides a better balance between the fast and the slow:- 

- Steem Fast: Post like there's no tomorrow. But #NewSteem doesn't make this mode as overpowering as it was before anymore in terms of potential rewards, which is a good thing.

- Steem Slow: Take your time to contribute. Your efforts will likely reflect well in your work. The new economic system in theory would better encourage others to actually check out and support your stuff.

Basically, #NewSteem is now better suited for content creators that take their time to produce. And SP holders don't have to farm their own posts 24/7 anymore. Being fast is no longer the gold standard. 

*Also, I expect a slower form of social media to be the norm in the future especially after the novelty and addiction wears off. That's coincidentally kinda fitting for a blockchain too, don't you think?*

Phew, finally I can put my alt-account @etherpunk to rest. The profile caption went on for so long that I thought it was going to be printed on my future tombstone as a joke. Well, I might just continue tweeting over there and post my dog pictures, but I'd rather spend the majority of my votes curating stuff elsewhere. And get back to writing.

# So what do I prefer to curate?

I've been searching through Steem again for the past month. There's a shortage of what I'd like to support. Still taking the time to transition into something more manual, hunting for what I think are trendworthy. If you're a good content creator with your eyes always on the prize, I'd definitely like to support your work.

Here's the list of stuff that I'd like to curate:-

1) Thought-provoking pieces. Extra brownie points when they have some relevance to (2) and (3).
2) Subjects surrounding [Tau](https://steemit.com/blockchain/@kevinwong/what-is-tauchain-and-why-it-could-be-one-of-the-greatest-inventions-of-all-time-part-1), technical or not. If you're still not into it yet as a crypto enthusiast, you're doing crypto wrong, in my opinion.
3) Non-typical Steem stuff. (Steem stuff should have its own separate new/hot/trending/etc, independent from the rest, btw)
4) Slice-of-life.
5) Comedy, satire, travel, etc. I'd prefer them to be somewhat unusual.
6) Futurology and science-fiction.
7) Business and entrepreneurship.
8) Art and STEM.

Maybe I'll just end up curating exotic memes after talking so much here. But items (1) and (2) are currently the highest on my list by far. My senses are telling me that it'd be what's most beneficial for Steem, for both internal and external reasons. I'll explain in one of my next posts. 

For now, I'd suggest anyone reading this to take a look at [Tau](https://steemit.com/blockchain/@kevinwong/what-is-tauchain-and-why-it-could-be-one-of-the-greatest-inventions-of-all-time-part-1) (http://idni.org) and go through everything that you can learn about if you've the free time. I've been sitting on hundreds of drafts ever since getting into it in late 2017. It's crypto enlightenment. Now that the EIP is through, I'm planning on revisiting those pieces and attempt to finish them up. Naturally, I'll prioritize my curation in this section if there's a supply of good content about it.

# Next level?

Hopefully my feed is going to change in a good way in the coming months as more users begin to sync up to the best of #NewSteem. Somewhat slower, livelier, better. But that's just my own preference anyway. You don't have to follow my standards. Everyone still has the freedom to post and upvote / downvote however they like. It's just a more balanced game now with the EIP, overall.

Anyways, happy to be back. Glad that I can already put this behind me and focus on other things for now.

So what do you think about #NewSteem so far? Better? Worse? Same old crap? What would you like to see more on trending? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks for reading!

<sub>Extra note: No votes have been purchased for this post. I even spoke out against bidbots. SmartSteem has pivoted into curation and OCDB as well (partially and would fully transition in the future). Hopefully more will follow suit. That's the whole point of #NewSteem. A healthier curation economy and the wind down of bidbots / similar activities, hopefully.</sub>

Exotic memes for the win!! :0D

It's so much better now, astonishingly #newsteem is like #oldsteem before it was #badoldsteem.

The way you describe bid-bots is perfect because it was rarely about promotion. It was mostly about getting discounted steem. It was rare to see a serial bidbotter with SP in treble figures and not in constant powerdown.

Here's to #newsteem!

I think many first came in with the #newsteem expectation and attitude, which was why #oldsteem was like #newsteem, although #oldsteem didn't actually function like #newsteem. It was an illusion. That was how #oldsteem became #badoldsteem. So confusing lol

Great post. I was initially one of the skeptics of the EIP and have commented on your posts about it. I think so far it is working well and I always liked the idea of free downvotes. Thats probably my favourite part of HF21.

Its nice to see upvotes from accounts that never upvoted me in the past (you included!).

Gotta say, it's been a while since anyone's put *that* much effort into a post on here

21 days in fact, since @traf's last post

None of this would have been possible without you Kevin. I sort of lost hope a few times along the way and just didn't give a fuck any more, but your being there always pulled me back in the fight.

Honest voting is just something that every other platform can take for granted but we have to fight for. And as you said, the fight is far from over. We need keep pushing against vote selling, self voting, circle jerking until almost everyone on here is voting honestly. The more ground we take, the easier it becomes.

There's a lot to do in the future, a lot of ways the EIP can be improved outside of just parameter changes. But this crude set of rules should be pretty resilient for now and has a good chance of holding the fort until then. Really grateful for all your help these last couple of years. Hopefully we'll walk out of these dark ages and laugh about them some day.

It's been great to see a few new *faces* voting on my blogs, your own included, however the greatest thing is the refreshed attitude, *tone*, steem seems to have which is positive and empowering. 

I'm really hopeful the community can continue all pulling in the same direction like this and am excited about the future of steem.

New Steem is looking better than what we had before, but there will be casualties. Lots of people who have been merrily milking the system for years are making a lot less now and some are pissed about that. It's a shame the big accounts didn't act sooner. I know it would eat into their own profit, but it's not like Steem was a roaring success. Those stagnant years have cost us all dearly. Some of us flagged anyway, but to little effect.

There's no ideal balance of rewards split, but we need to work with what we've got for now. I see the big guys are voting up each other, but we need more than just posts about Steem on trending if we want to attract actual content creators. There are a few promising new curation projects and some vote sellers have changed their bus models. I hope things will settle down and it becomes worth looking at trending.

Steem needs an injection of new talent that will need some support to be sustainable.

It will never be perfect, but it can be better.

The big accounts (myself included) couldn't act sooner. That's the entire point of the EIP

If I fought an abuser back then, it'll cost me a few hundred to a few thousand dollars in opportunity cost per day, just to know that 75% of the rewards rescued was merely going into the hands of other abusers. The common knowledge of this prevent the system from self correcting. Fighting abuse was futile, capricious and expensive. 


And now it's not :)

Agree about trending etc. But for now, any remotely honest set of votes is better than what we had, which was a product of vote selling, self voting junk by the majority of active stake on here. Eventually either tastes may change or communities may help etc. There's a lot of room for improvement, but honest voting is the bedrock of a POB system.

It depended on whether you needed to make a profit. Steemit could have dealt with some abuse, but I assume they wanted to stay neutral. I didn't buy much Steem, so it's all profit to me and I felt I had to do something about what I was seeing, even though I got hit back many times. This situation did a lot of damage as many people have up in frustration.

Lots of good stuff is happening now with all sorts of projects being built on Steem. We desperately need communities to match what other platforms offer in terms of groups around topics.

I've stuck with Steem all this time and am still optimistic. There's never been anything quite like it, so it's hard to know how it will go.

> So in Steem's case, one of its fundamental problems is the cost between honest and dishonest voting behavior.

I like that approach. When I brought up the problem of blind voting the counter arguments I heard were along the lines of "curators are supposed to maximize their curation rewards". As you know there is no direct way to punish anyone for misusing their stake by upvoting bid botted shit. Downvoting somebody's content will hit that content creator's rewards hard but even if some piece of bid botted shit content or advertisement is making a negative ROI, its upvoters  are not.

We don't want Trending to be full of paid advertisements. Some selfish people will upvote them despite the efforts of other curators who downvote them to ensure paid advertisements are not making money. There is little you can do about the first kind of selfish curators unless they are content creators whose content can be downvoted as punishment.

To reach a tipping point where curation reward maximization is best done auto-voting quality we need to "concentrate all firepower" as Admiral Ackbar would put it, mostly on paid advertisements in Trending. The obvious shitposts designed to milk the reward system are mostly gone from Trending. We must also double down of finding very high quality content and upvoting it to the top of Trending for stake belonging to blind curation reward milkers to propel even higher.

When I asked Idi Amin whether he thought #newsteem was done realigning incentives by flagging on here, this was his response:

Hi @kevinwong,

I am so happy to see this post and your new vigor for STEEM. I know you already support some trails such as @teammalaysia, so here are some more you might consider looking at. All give great results in ease of finding good individual authors and posts to support, and most have trails.

#### Initiatives you might want to support:
- @freewritehouse and @mariannewest <<< New authors
- @abh12345 - Curation and Engagement League Participants <<< People who know how to curate
- @pifc contests <<< Finds undervalued posts
- @trufflepig <<< Finds undervalued posts
- @travelfeed <<< Awesome dApp and team for travel related posts. 
- @steemitmamas <<< Moms on STEEM #womenincrypto is a โ€œthing. Most crypto projects have 10% women. STEEM has 25%.
- @qurator daily posts and author spotlights <<< A large group of daily bloggers
- @tasteem contests <<< Restaurant reviews
- @socalsteemit <<< Southern California
- @heyhaveyamet posts <<< Promising noobs with good intro posts
- @steemterminal <<< Same people as above helping redfish after the intro
- @ntopaz contests and regular feed <<< photgraphers
- @c-cubed daily posts <<< manually curated top undervalued posts of the day
- @steevc and his @tenkminnows project <<< Trying to get redfish over 500 SP

The people that do these initiatives can also use help themselves. Most of these hardworkers are small accounts themselves. If you like what they do after looking, and feel you can trust them, you can follow their trail and move on to the next place if you still have votes to give.

Many of these people put their own steem and fiat into their programs in hopes of keeping them going. My list was longer, but many good people have had to stop over the last year. 

My list is also not complete. I do not look at certain topics such as crypto, sports, or videos. All of those and more have their own curation initiatives. I am only one person and so focus on what I know. Thank you for all you do for those of us at the bottom of the pond. Your help means much more than you will ever know.

I'm in favor of #NewSTEEM but very sad for the many we have lost to it. I never look on trending so have no idea about it. I vote and associate with tiny minnows and redfish who won't be there. 

Onward and upwards :)

> That was when I began my descent into self-doubt. Being stuck in a place between certainty and uncertainty is probably the most frustrating kind of mental paralysis. I couldn't bring myself to Steem at all. I was also entirely aware that I may be suffering from the Dunning-Kruger effect. The EIP is almost like trying to make a heap of metal fly in the air before it was even invented after all.

> It's a dilemma. And then I thought at one point.. what about the skeptics of the EIP? Why do they seem equally as confident in their arguments, if not more than I could ever be about my own? Dunning and Kruger smiled.

I feel you as I've been going through similar experiences in my time on Steem. It's not easy bringing change to Steem, since many people are fast to judge and overinflated in their own opinion, even if they don't really know what they're talking about. So I think it was the healthy thing to do for you to take a break since you're not able to just stop people from their own behaviour.

I'm also more confident in the future of Steem, even though it will require strong actions to make sure things aren't turning back and we need a clearer vision for Steem. Right now, the opinions about what Steem is are very diverse, which makes it difficult to come together in a believe on what Steem should be and what we're working on here.

Thanks for sharing that. Itโ€™s refreshing to read someone who is genuinely reflecting on their own opinions and questioning their own beliefs. I think itโ€™s a sign of maturity when an individual or a community can do that.

I have to say my behest scepticism in the hardfork was around downvoting. Iโ€™ve softened my stance now because it appears my fears havenโ€™t come to fruition โ€“ thankfully!

Thereโ€™s definitely something more positive in the air around here.

Thanks for all your hard work as a witness!

My main concern was what appeared to be a fervour that downvoting was going to be the answer to all our woes.

I probably didnโ€™t quite understand the full extent, but I kept my mind open and kept taking in opinions.

It seems there wasnโ€™t a massive flag war blitzkrieg thankfully.

When I sat with it I actually understood it better when I considered up and down voting as a system of regulation and correction. I like to see the blockchain as a self-regulating organism, so we need these mechanisms of correction.

Weโ€™re in a transitional phase.... the organism is evolving and maturing!!

I still think down votes should require a comment, so that the **Steem** delegated 25 REP accounts that **only** down vote can be slammed into oblivion. I still do not understand why Steem allows delegations to sit in those accounts that do not post do not comment and only down vote just to be annoying. 

Other than that EIP and #newsteem seem to be off to a good start, sort of. A few kinks and glitches do happen but that is to be expected while it all settles in.

Dear @kevinwong

Welcome back :)

Great read Kevin. I wonder how those forks will re-program community on Steemit. It's obvious that users behaviours will change dramatically. Hope for the better.

> That was when I began my descent into self-doubt. Being stuck in a place between certainty and uncertainty is probably the most frustrating kind of mental paralysis

I feel you buddy. It's crucial to have some distance to make a right judgement for ourselfs.

One think that bothers me with current fork is free downvote pool. It's opening huge door for abuse and even I was flagged (my latest post) with over 600k SP by few users for reasons I never knew. To many people are downvoting left and right without being bothered to warn their targets and create some sort of database of all people being already warned.

Yours,
Piotr

Sorry to hear what you went through. There are bound to be outlier events, but it's not as likely to be permanent though, as voters can be influenced as long as they can be reasoned with. I'd be all ears if there's a better solution. Without the current implementation, crude as it may be, we end up with a totally broken platform across the board, at least from my pov. And it's capped at 25%, so it'd take 2 good actors to counteract each mistreatment on the same level of SP, which is doable. And it's not opening a huge door for abuse like you're claiming, as it's too weak for any collusive downvoting (in a way that it can squeeze out the reward pool overwhelmingly for profit).

Hi Kevin! This was a very nice read.

I was actually really sceptical with the changes connected to this HF. However, something was wrong and needed to be fixed. With this respect, any try was in my opinion better than doing nothing. And today, as you, I do enjoy the outcome.

> Basically, #NewSteem is now better suited for content creators that take their time to produce. And SP holders don't have to farm their own posts 24/7 anymore. Being fast is no longer the gold standard.

I hope so. I am looking deeply to the corner of Steem I like most (you can guess, your item #8 ;) ) and I hope to see some changes in the next few weeks. Old authors reappeared last week and this week. Is it the beginning? Let's see.

If you are interested in helping STEM on Steem (aka SteemSTEM), we can have a chat anytime and anywhere. We can also discuss a mechanism that would also be good for you, as a supporter of SteemSTEM. Blindly following SteemSTEM is a way, but there are also other ways (better from the supporter standpoint), that can be put in place. Do not hesitate to reach me out if you want ^^

Hey, 

i haven't really noticed much of a difference with #NewSteem. I promote Steem on my german Youtube Crypto Show daily and hope that more people will join this awesome platform :)

Cheers from Germany

Glad to see you back.  I wondered a long time are you a bad guy or nor. Glad to read this poat to know more about you and how you feel about steem.

New steem is awesome and motivating. One thing I would suggest is to support curators who tirelessly were supporting others and powering up even tho steem was in the bad position.

Now that we got new steem, everyone is a curator and I am glad that people will feel good about spreading some love, like I do.

So... #supportcurators

For me as a content creator the jury is still out. I am very happy to see the larger stake holders come together to fight against the abuses that were going on and the return of many to curation. Time will tell if the cream rises to the top or if the $20 threshold will make the potential great posters loose interest before they are discovered.
All that said. I am happy with the leap of fate that are these hardforks.

@hiroyamagishi ·
Hello @kevinwong, thank you for posting again. And also thank you for your supporting my #introducemyself post 2 years ago. If it wasn't for that I cannot see myself motivated until now.

I want to seek your attention Kevin

Let me introduce myself, I am a cyber worker(you can call it that way) of church of God which is led by brother [Eli Soriano](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eliseo_Soriano) to help Venezuela and Nigeria by upvoting their comment and post.


https://twitter.com/elcaminoantiguo/status/1117891913313423360?s=19

This is the confirmation in our official twitter account that I have the rights to post his video on Steemit. 

Brother Eli Soriano and Brother Daniel Razon is philantrophist and running different [charity programs](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Razon#Charities).

I talked to him(brother eli) about Steemit when I am in brasil and he got interested of helping people with economic needs by upvoting them.

I am looking for your support by manually voting people who makes video comment in our topic which you can find in hashtag #broelisoriano. Or if you pleased, you can delegate on us so we can manually curate them all. We have many charity programs all over the globe so for the meantime we cannot focus all our resources to buy up steem power. Can I private message you?

P.S.
It's like hitting two birds in one stone. Promoting the words of God by helping people. Also, bringing more people here on this wonderful blockchain.

Welcome back! 

I look forward to a slower social media age too... I mean letโ€™s face it, most people donโ€™t have enough in the tank to churn out interesting content every day.... most people would be better off posting much less often. 

I say welcome back, Iโ€™m having a bit of a break myself - other stuff to focus on, but I can feel my steem mojo recharging.... maybe a change of scene ar sf4 will kick me back into life! 

We-ll see!

That was very interesting to read. 
And in particular I enjoyed myself! How refreshing, your way of writing. In particular your self reflection.

And: LOL, the Dunningโ€“Kruger effect, thanks for that link. It happens to me too often. 

I hope it irritates you when I say that there is no such thing as impartiality or that it is almost impossible to be impartial. In my career I did a module on "mediation" (Attention: not meditation!) and learned there that someone who listens to the interests of disputants must be "all-party". 

This is a very unusual way of being in contact with people (your habit doesn't like it and tries to fight it). You are encouraged to always take sides emotionally with the person you are talking to (a small paradox when talking about neutrality). If you turn to the other party, it is the same.  

Then how does it go to come to an agreement and a decision? The mediator first collects the complaints, he signals to everyone that from his perspective the complaint is comprehensible (it always is). The client feels taken seriously. 

Then it goes into the collection of concerns and possible solutions.  All these activities take place under the moderation of the mediator, so he has received an official mandate. From both sides. 

If you have ever tried something like this, you will notice that you are always taking sides internally and you are inclined to vote for one tendentially or even strongly. But the moment when you catch yourself is the tip of the tongue. You let go of this impulse and say to yourself: I am not making the decision here. I serve the good will of those who gave me the mandate.  

Not sure, if ever some one will be a millionaire that way. Probably not on purpose. I'd like this place much better if it wasn't so much about money. The interesting entrepreneurs of our time and history were often people who wanted a truly fantastic product and the more people were benefited, the better. But social media is now over a decade old and people learned through role models and media consumption/politics before. It's impulse driven. I would like to have an artificial "halt" between the buttons and me. More time, as you say. Not only in posting and curating and all that jazz. But in stopping myself from over reacting and judging. 

I wrote a lot of stuff you might be interested in. But I must say, despite your words, the habit is here never go back to a post which is older than 7 days. I do not know myself to be that way. But somehow it also influenced me and I explain it by the really really bad research function on the steemit interface. Also no blogging standard whatsoever (I am coming from WordPress). 

Be assured I read your article with care. I am saying that because you might think I didn't as I seem to talk about "my stuff".

edit: you might ask why I mention mediation. I refer to your work as a witness. You guys are seen not as only tech people but also carrying opinion role modeling and political work.

That's why I was careful to say "try" lol, although I've done these things before and as you said, certainly not the best way to make it big. And I'd be kidding myself if I think I could be consistent all the time, so in the case of Steem, at least there's the rest of the network to keep each other honest if I fail to do so.

Yup, I remember coming across one of your posts a couple weeks ago when I got back into looking around. And please let me know if you've any good ideas for an interface! Btw (I've already mentioned this in the post above), you might want to check [this](http://www.idni.org/blog/the-new-tau) out. I think you'll be interested seeing that you've been thinking about these things, going by your comment. Thanks for dropping by!

Don't even try to be neutral, be all-party :) LOL - That is, how I understand TAU. I came across TAU about a year ago and don't know exactly what to think about it. It sounds good, but I haven't decided how to look at it yet.  

I think what people are afraid of is the result of their collected opinions when they are evaluated. You always think that the others are stupider or more selfish than you are. Having confidence in the many is only possible if these many get a framework for sensible decisions. Not on the basis of an impulsive opinion, but on the basis of a balance that reflects the least inner resistance. 

It's about having confidence in people, even though they seem idiotic and you have a real aversion to them on the surface. 

The basis is often mistrust and so it sounds from the social media channels that the only way to deal with each other is through reward and punishment. We all know that this is not the case. The best way to deal with each other is to impute to the other the same curiosity, fascination and ability that this person might have. 

As long as there is no TAU, I plead for experiments that are much easier to implement. Please look at [systemic consensus](http://www.plays-in-business.com/systemic-consensing-what-the-hell-is-this/), I think you will immediately see the advantage. I try to run experiments here, but so far got not enough participants to make an interesting evaluation. Though I will do with the last one, just to give credit to the people who voted. 

Would you like to do a collaborative post with me about this? We could mix TAU and systemic consensus, if they fit together. I need some help in order to spread the idea. 

May I ask where you are located? 
Greetings from Hamburg!

I totally agree with your view on bidbots, I really hate them!!
I however cannot see that people will really go and search for good content, which might still be low paying posts, as the curators will want to maximize on their curation income, which will still happen on the traditional high paying posts. You will see some whales get high votes on one liners, never-mind the content!!

So.  I couldn't help but notice there's a post here written by @kevinwong, it's about the EIP, ***but as of this writing, the comment section isn't jammed with debate.***  
<sup>*That's a good sign.*</sup>

I was impressed with how fast things took shape.  That was unexpected.  It's still quite early though and I hope this *movement* doesn't lose momentum.  There's still work to do but at the same time, there's proof all around people are working on it.  Probably too early to sense the full force of the *positive feedback loop* you had mentioned, *but it's starting.*

Hay @Kevinwong - great post. I have seen a few now with renewed interest in steem and it's a breath of fresh air.  It can be very hard to firefight human emotions when HFs are on the way, keeping moral up can be a drain indeed. However you can hold ur head up high now. The buzz is contiguous.

Incomming shameless promotion: If you are looking for some non typical steem stuff to follow, why not try out some of the learn and earn activities by @theexcelclub. It's not so popular here on steemit, but I use wordpress with steempress and the site gets lots of traffic (and exposure for steem ๐Ÿ˜‰)

I'm glad you've made a post to enlighten us and explained some philosophically important information after the change because of HF 20 and HF 21. Like other Steemians in Indonesia, I also tried to adjust to the changes. But, we hope that the good things in the past will be maintained, one of which is the concern for the community to continue to grow. Warm regard from Indonesia @kevinwong.

Good to see you back active @kevinwong .... the skeptic in me is at best cautiously optimistic in regards to the changes. It's a good start so far BUT 3 months, 6 months, even a year from now will tell the tale if this is any more than a blip in the path.

This is what you showcase to someone with an influential upvote?

Drafts, proof-reading, editing. . . All of that will go a very long way and when you put more care into your work and publish only your absolute best, you will see positive changes and won't have to go chasing readers/votes..

It looks to me like you typed it up on-the spot in the STEEM editor and hit publish without reading it over, formatting for aesthetics and most of all lack of spell-checking.

Maybe I'm wrong in that assumption, but that is how it comes across as a first impression.

What you wrote is valid and could be interesting to the right people (and there are people out there for every possible topic), but it's the presentation that is lacking and where you might be losing would-be supporters.

I hope you don't take too much offence to this - worst case scenario would be to jump on the defensive, best case scenario is you try to learn and improve from it.

Good luck!

N:<sup> _Just for any doubters who try to take this route - I do understand that English is not everyone's first language, but this is 2019 and there are so many tools out there for writers online that not being a native English speaker is no excuse anymore.  Incorrect use of grammar is one thing but sloppy punctuation/capitalization and lack of running your drafts through a decent spell-check is an entirely different thing.._</sup>

"Bidbotting is a secondary market where people are able to effectively buy discounted Steem perpetually. This sabotages the primary market, leading to a sustained devaluation of our currency and platform. "  This was a great explanation of the effect of bidbotting. Your post really makes it easy to understand how the new Steem may be much better for the long term.

<strong>SOCIAL MEDIA ISN'T HONEST THOUGH?</strong>
You might make good points in general (idk as I haven't actually had much time to be around and see the real fallout of these changes - the main reason I preferred steemit over youtube was that it supports small creators though so that seems like it is not a benefit anymore based on the thing of "posts that make under 20 steem before will make even less now" but I am yet to see how that plays out in reality) but conventional social media for the most part doesn't work, especially if it is a graph of honesty.  Reddit is an exception, but most social media is terrible.  

It's full of people either talking on a really shallow level or arguing and it certainly isn't honest (this is where reddit and steemit differ from other social media the most as people have indepth discussions on both that don't automatically become arguments instead - not saying arguments don't occur on these, they do, but it's at least possible and not rare to have discussions here on reddit without it being an argument instead).  I've literally told people on facebook that something they are sharing is not factually true and they say that they don't care because they like the sentiment.  To still share the factually incorrect thing anyway and say you are okay with spreading something that isn't true just because you like the sentiment isn't honest in any way and is just dumb honestly.    

I don't think Steem has less honesty than other social media.  As well as people sharing incorrect information or even harmful information at times on the others, people also share primarily the good parts of their lives and make it all look great.  That's not honest.  


<strong>CHANGES OPINION WITHOUT SEEING IT PLAY OUT YET </strong>
As for the changes, I personally am sad to see yet another platform make it harder for their smaller creators, but I haven't yet seen how that plays out either.  I experienced being monetised on YouTube as a tiny channel and then having it taken away when the first adpocalypse happened and they set sub and view time counts to reach first before becoming monetised and it's cents lost but it feels terrible when platforms make changes that make it harder for small creators so the situation has to be pretty bad for me to agree with something that makes it harder for any creators, but especially small creators, regardless of whether I was a small creator or the biggest creator on the platform (as I care about the other creators too).  And I don't feel that other people spamming or milking the system etc justifies making it harder for all the other small creators.  To me that won't make me stop using the platform, but it is something I still think is just morally wrong.  

<strong>I REALLY THINK THERE IS A LOGIC FLAW WITH THIS PART DUE TO THE EXISTENCE OF COOL UNPOPULAR THINGS AND POOR QUALITY POPULAR THINGS </strong>
"It can only be stuff that are so super interesting and so valuable, so much that they'd even transcend the most nitpicky bastards on the Internet."
I don't like this.  I sometimes like things that are popular but I also sometimes like things that are unpopular.  If I use an upvote, I want my upvote to reward what I like, even if it is unpopular with other people.  Popular does not mean good.  Popular also doesn't mean bad either.  This is why people who decide whether to like or dislike something based only on its popularity (either sheep or hipsters depending on which stance they take) are being stupid.  I downvote stuff that is just wrong like actual harmful content or scams because that stuff shouldn't be allowed to harm people but a dark souls style trending page is okay because it is trending but when this is combined with strongly reducing the rewards to small creators that may be unappreciated due their niche or sense of humour etc this is a bad thing.  We don't want only the things that are interesting and valuable to the masses to be the rewarded, more visible things because the opinions of the masses can indicate quality but it doesn't necessarily and our upvotes should support the content we want to support, not what everyone else wants to support.  

Your statement about the things that make it there being the most valuable just simply is a logic flaw though, as reality TV and Jake and Logan Paul are popular on other platforms and by the logic of your statement, that would mean reality TV and the Pauls (Logan Paul being the guy who filmed a dead body in the Japanese suicide forest and then put it on his channel for his young audience if you don't know who he is) are quality, valuable content but neither of those things are.  Some things are popular because they are good quality, but not that is good quality is popular and not everything that is popular is good quality.

The main issue I see with these changes is the negative impacts on small or niche creators and the fact that what I think about certain content matters less than it used to (which actually just slightly pisses me off a little as I want to reward what I like, not feel like "it won't get enough upvotes, it's not worth upvoting as my vote will mean nothing") but I also feel people are falling into a trap of thinking that popular content automatically equals good content and unpopular content automatically equals bad content but those are only sometimes causally related (ie things can be popular due to being good quality or even not necessarily either good or bad quality but simply just an improvement in terms of quality on a similar thing, but things can also be popular despite not being good quality).

I think all that has been massively blown out of proportion..

I re-joined STEEM a few weeks before the hardfork, I signed up in January, hated it and left, came back to play Splinterland with Tron, but then I slowly I started posting more and networking here and I am still a very small account but I have no complaints over my earnings.  I think my hard patience comes from the fact that I got into crypto and grew my collection by using faucets daily - still do, and I know how every penny of a penny adds up in time.  I'm not here to get rich quick, I am here to be a writer, share my art and hopefully grow a following who appreciate my work. So far I've garnered a few good fans, and every day I see growth in one way or another.

I still vote on what I want to vote on, votes are worth less than what they _used to be worth_ on content that's earned less than 20 STEEM, but honestly since I started being active again right before the changes, I'm still collecting and building my SP and still hold less than 1000 SP, heck less than 100 natural SP.. so my vote is worth what it's worth - I don't have a higher value to compare it to since with my growth comes an increase in my vote value each time I put SP away.

Don't worry about what's popular, what's important is supporting the creators you like. If they create quality content (quality is not as subjective as popular - someone who doesn't proof read and do a simple spell check before publishing, doesn't attribute sources or doesn't put care into what they produce, is not considered quality no matter how you slice it. . Standard quality is pretty uniform and with quality work and engagement comes a following and when those boxes are checked, the earnings will come.

@birchmark ·
Thanks for your reply.  I'm glad to hear you are finding that you are still gaining SP since the changes.  

I've been here since 2017 on and off, never giving up on it as such, but just having various other things going on in life and having more or less time for it depending on these things.  It's hard to be patient when nothing is working out right (and the changes to Steem came at a bad time and were a straw on a camel's back that was already broken) and I know the solution is not getting rich quickly (though ofc I wouldn't exactly complain if I won lotto or something), but I also KNOW now that the solution IS to be able to live off of my art rather than other sources.  However, I think I've overall been relatively patient with Steem (and the other platforms I've been on).  

Patience isn't the issue here.  I don't care if it makes it take a smidgen longer.  It just seems quite possible that maybe there was another solution that didn't include making it harder for the little guys, and if there was another solution that didn't include making posts that make less than 20 steem make even less, and it didn't screw over another group on here in a similar manner, then that would have been the better and more moral solution to use.   They probably had to do something but I just don't know if they did the right thing and I'd avoid the change that made posts making 20 steem now make less if it was unavoidable and an equally good or better solution was available.  I can speculate but I can't know if there was a better solution without having access to all of the information that could possibly inform that decision, but either way, it's still annoying.  

I've seen YouTube go to complete shit for all creators but especially smaller creators, and I do not want to see this happen to Steem.  I mostly just hope that this isn't the start of trend, like YouTube's response to the first adpocalypse was the start of a trend of them making it harder for creators while bending over backwards for advertisers.  This is a different situation but it could still follow a trend and I hope we don't see that happen.  

Truthfully though it is frustrating that it is so often the little people who cop it the most from changes.  It is also frustrating trying to get ahead and having spanner after spanner after spanner thrown in the works (this change only being one, but that doesn't mean people aren't struggling with other challenges at the same time this one was thrown in).  

I do care about my business growing and doing well as I very strongly feel that my business is the way I will truly succeed at life.  However, I'd just keep going along and trying to make Steem work for me.  My major concern with this was about how I won't necessarily be able to support other people as well as I'd like because popularity matters now.  

I have just kept supporting creators and content I like, actually even more so, not because of the changes but because my life situation changed and I have more time to both create and curate atm than not so long ago and I'm mostly just moving forward, and still only voting for what I want to vote for (and hoping that the person benefits from it if their content doesn't become popular) but I'm still not sure that I agree with the change made to Steem.  We will see over time how this change, and future changes go.  

As for quality content, it is more subjective than popularity because popularity we can track with numbers and statistics.  Whether we think should be popular or not is very subjective though as we will all differ in this regard.      

Going from what you've said in your comment, honestly, I care about proof reading and spelling but nowhere near as much as I care about the meaning within whatever is written.   It does impact quality but I'd class a post full of spelling errors but with meaningful or thought provoking or funny etc content as being higher quality than a post that has no spelling errors but also isn't good or interesting in terms of what the content actually is.  Ideally a post would have both, but grammar and spelling means a lot less to me than the content itself and wouldn't hold as much weight in determining if something is quality compared to the meaning within the content.  

People don't agree on quality nor how much effort is put into artistic work.   I have seen people (quite powerful people if I remember correctly) make comments on Steemit in the past about how they won't upvote videos without a significant amount of text with them.  I prefer some text because it helps verify that they actually created the video and didn't just steal it and post it to earn from someone else's work but I wouldn't need a significant amount of text to find a video post to be quality, because I know how much work goes into making videos and often more time and work goes in to making my videos than it does to making written posts on here.  

A good example is from YouTube creators.  A lot of other YouTube creators look down on lets plays because they think they are "low effort content".  In terms of videos, for the most part I make lets plays, animations and robotics videos.  My lets plays do take less effort than animation but they are far from low effort content.  The most recent gaming video I edited had about 8 - 10 hours spent on editing it.  Some take more and some take less but lets plays and gaming videos aren't automatically low effort content, but some people see it that way.  

Between the views I've seen of gaming content by other video creators and the views I've seen expressed on here about video focused posts, I don't think quality is that objective and I don't think it is obvious for the most part whether someone puts care into what they produce.  

Obviously posts that are one sentence, and not even a sentence that means anything significant, or straight up scams (I did downvote someone at one point for sharing a vbucks scam) would fall into the not quality / don't put care into what they produce category, but beyond the most obvious examples, I don't think it's clear whether people put care into what they produce or not and I feel certain that individuals underestimate the amount of work and care that goes into some types of art that maybe they aren't as familiar with the process of creating.  

While it certainly improves quality, I personally could not put proof reading and spelling above the actual guts or meaning of a piece of content though.  It just isn't anywhere near as important as what is actually contained within that piece of writing in my opinion.

- Itโ€™s honest voting *behaviour*. Nothing about the nature of content. And I didnโ€™t mention anything about quality.

- IRL as a curator I'm always looking for cool unpopular stuff and promoting them before they blow up. And SP makes it possible to unearth underground stuff earlier than โ€œdemocracticโ€ means, ie view / like count. It all boils down into influence and persuasion. People are not static. So I totally get what youโ€™re saying and theyโ€™re part of what Iโ€™ve expressed above.

- The curve is there for pragmatic reasons. Itโ€™s either a failure of a platform over the long run or a functional one, albeit with a slight inequality on the lower end. If there's a better way to go about this, will be all ears.

@birchmark ·
<strong>Behaviour</strong>
For the first point, fair enough.  I was reasonably burnt out when I read your post and that combined with other things contributed to me misunderstanding what you were saying there.  Voting behaviour is more likely to be honest when there aren't financial rewards at stake for how your vote.  

<strong>Quality</strong>
You did mention quality though.  You said ""It can only be stuff that are so super interesting and so valuable, so much that they'd even transcend the most nitpicky bastards on the Internet" - I'd imagine something that meets that description would be quality.  Maybe not the last bit as not liking certain things is more about interests and what someone as an individual truly likes than being nitpicky, but the other bit about interesting and valuable is related to quality.  Quality is partially subjective and partially objective as some aspects of things improve quality but different people will see something that is quality in one area but not in another etc differently due to the importance they put on those particular areas.   For example, the other person who responded to me mentioned grammar and spelling etc and that does improve quality but to them it almost seemed to be a defining factor, which is fair enough, however while having both would be great, I would personally care more about the content contained in the writing than the grammar and spelling unless it was at the point it was impossible to read.  This could mean a post I thought was quality as it inspired thought or was well writtten or humourous or smart, despite having some issues in regards to spelling, could be deemed as not quality by them due to the spelling.  Neither of us would be wrong there.

Some things are objectively not good quality though.  I've seen posts that are literally one sentence and not even a sentence that is thought provoking or funny or something.  I doubt many people would consider that to be quality.  

<strong>My opinions on SP and Steem and thanks to you for promoting cool yet unpopular stuff </strong>
That's great that you look for cool stuff to promote.  We need people to do that.  Thank you for doing that.  It's been hard for me to do much lately but stuff has changed in my life recently and although I don't really have much SP yet, I intend to spend some more time both creating and curating on all the platforms I use, including Steem.  I don't agree or disagree with the SP system in place personally.  It's a decent system that comes with its own pros and cons and its far from the worst I've seen.  I'll still admit and discuss its pros and cons and how to best work with these, just like I do with YouTube's decisions (some people do not - a lot of people seem to respond with either "I hate YouTube /rant" or "YouTube is great.  I think the sun shines out their arse and they can do what they want because it's their business" which are both very pointless approaches to take and don't achieve anything in working out how to deal with changes either).  

Steem I think does have some issues and I don't know whether the most recent changes will in the long term be a good thing or a bad thing, but it is still one of the better systems I've seen and is definitely better than YouTube is (including for smaller creators).  It's just scary to see a trend towards making it harder for small creators on any platform.  

<strong>Inequality and the Curve</strong>
I don't know if there is a better way than having the inequality on the lower end.  I just hope there is because, whether its a platform like this or the real world and its structures, welfare (having been in this situation in that past and at other times worked helping people in this situation, I feel confident to say that most people aren't there by choice and don't want to be on welfare) or whatever it is - it is always the people struggling, the small creators, the "little guy" - who is the one that cops it, or if the lower end does have help, normally it's still not enough and the people who are doing just well enough not to get help still aren't doing well and should be eligible for help still but they're not and they still fall into the "little guy" category but just not little enough to get help.  

It's more just that Steem was so so much better to small creators than YouTube which was my main comparison at the time I started on Steem.   Since then Steem has had some issues but policy / programming changes that disadvantage the small creators in the process of fixing it, is kind of concerning as I don't want to see it copy the rest of the world.  I don't want the other extreme and have SP mean nothing and have people's votes all be worth the same either, but it's a concerning move in terms of what it does now, but also about whether it leads to more changes down the track.  It doesn't help that one of the worst platforms for going down a slippery slope of making changes that screw over creators is the one I have most experience with otherwise (but still have enough experience to know what they did is wrong and often a knee-jerk reaction because other platforms I've been on don't respond the way they have to things) but even with the annoying bid bots pushing things up to trending and the occasional upvoting circle-jerk, I like this place and I don't want to see a string of changes harm the little guys in order to stop the crappy content and bad behaviours.  

I would suspect there is a better way to go about having a functional platform without messing with the curve to make it worse for smaller creators than it was previously, but without a lot more information and time to problem solve it I don't know how, and it's also a possibility that there was a way of doing it that would create similar improvements while also not making it harder for smaller creators but it would take longer to implement, or it would create similar but not quite as large improvements but without the negatives etc and they prioritised all the conflicting aspects of it and decided this was the best.  

I don't disagree with everything they have done.  I just feel that if there is a similar and effective solution that doesn't harm small creators, the more moral and better business decision is not to harm small creators, even if there is a small trade off between overall improvement and not making the platform worse for small creators.  If it's a bigger trade off, that's a harder decision to make.  Sometimes it needs to happen.  YouTube is an example of this.  They didn't need to bend over backwards to advertisers and ruin their platform to the extent they have over time, but they did need to do something when they made those initial changes, not due to Pewdiepie's dumb jokes, but due to the fact that there were ads on terrorist videos.  They had to do something. 

Steem had to do something too.  I just don't know if the change of making it harder for smaller creators than it previously was was truly necessary or if it was the best decision they could have made.  

<strong>The Main Question</strong>
I suppose the main question is, for all the benefits you see, was the change in the curve functionally essential in order to make these benefits occur?  Or was there another way?  Even with the way it was done, how much of the improvements are directly connected to the change that leads to creators making less than 20 steem making even less than they would previously?  

I don't know, and I haven't read enough or seen a breakdown of the changes that directly connected them and showed <i>"this change (which is good) is directly reliant on this change (which is a necessary evil to do the previously mentioned change)" </i> etc to know for certain how important each part was to every other part, and I'll keep using the platform regardless, but I don't like that particular aspect of the hardforks and while I hope it was necessary since they did it, regardless of if it was necessary, it still had a negative impact on smaller creators, so that sucks for them.  Hopefully small creators taking one for the platform will be worth it and Steem will improve (and hopefully we don't lose small creators in the process).    I guess we will see what happens as time goes on.  I just hope this change doesn't lead to other similar changes that also affect the smaller creators negatively.  I need to give the people behind Steem more credit than to assume they would make a slippery slope of dumb decisions like YouTube has, but I have seen the slippery slope happen before and its something to be aware of at least and changes affecting small creators negatively does set off alarm bells.  

I really hope this works out well. You seem like a good member of the community and I appreciate that you curate cool unpopular stuff and I genuinely like Steem (otherwise I wouldn't care about the changes as I'd just move on and stop using it).  It's just sad to see changes that affect one end of the curve negatively really and it also just feels sadder because my main draw to Steem in the first place was directly connected to how it treats all creators, including the small creators, and while it still probably shits all over YouTube for treating small creators well, the change is still a step in the opposite direction away from one of the main things I liked about the platform.

absolutely 100% agreement!

Bandwagoning (is the advertising term) and it does not mean something is good, or right!  It just means that sheep followed it.

And the problem is we are incentivizing sheep and bigger players to not go out of their niches and create!

These changes are completely as backwards for the blockchain!

It's trickle-down economics and Regan and 99% of economists all realized it was voodoo economics...

@filotasriza3 ·
i had much going on so i was a bit of absent from Steemit for the past 5 months. It was kind the same like with you.  I wasn't interacting nor making any posts especially given my 0 free time but i caught a glimpse of the upcoming hardfork. To tell you the truth i was a bit frustrated and thought this going to fail badly. To be perfectly honest i didn't read a lot about it's features.

Now that i have a bit more free time and i wanted to get back on my steemit world i checked and still checking some posts to see what i missed. *I follow you for years, i recall skapaneas suggested you since i joined!* 

From what i get although the rewards are 50/50 and may seem less, the road leads to curation right? To be more exact careful curation and even manual? **If that's the case that's great for me!**

I haven't used a bot service since i got here and i curate manually every single post while trying to read it and interact by commenting with the person made as i would like someone to do the same for me. i was sicked and tired with all this bot abuse and this thing that you mentioned (*i quote it below*) reminded me all the hard-work that i thought many time it was for nothing

>If you started off on Steem with 1000 SP just like someone else, you would end up with 1150 SP at the end of the year being an honest voter, while the other person would end up with 1600 SP instead for doing the total opposite of what you're doing.

It's not the same before? What matters now is a healthier curation economy imo, there's a better chance for things to correct itself out over time.

Dear @kevinwong

Great read buddy. Im still wondering how those recent forks will change users behaviours in a long term.

All I've noticed so far is huge wave of optimism and hopefully it will last.

I'm glad you put your doubts aside. Welcome back.

> Now, imagine a hypothetical trending page that is truly unforgiving like a Dark Souls game. A place where voters hold everything up to some extremely high standard. Imagine what kinds of content would survive?

Personally I think that to be in trending page can be only possible if we're surrounded by powerful stake holders. Those who only create quality content (but are not friends with larger accounts) most likely will never reach trending without bidbots. 

Have a great weekend ahead,
Yours, Piotr

Hello, I do not know you but was just downvoted by you for my Splinterlands post. This was my first downvote and it is a sad time. I have been here on the Steem blockchain for over 2 years now.  I was doing a video at the time of this and showed myself paying DEC I earned and bought as well to use the upvote bot . People ask me all the time so I make videos to help them. I used my 4,636 DEC to upvote with the Steemmonsters upvote post. Dtube already upvoted it and the post was at $8.00 then before the vote. I just came to make another video for Splinterlands to show what I made from it and I made nothing. It was still $8. I have officially received my first downvote and do not know why. I make $9 an hour here in Richmond, VA USA taking care of my 23 year old severely disabled son, Adil. He cannot walk or talk. I am not rich at all. Quite the opposite so I try to make money at Splinterlands- AKA Steem Monsters on the STEEM blockchain.  I am home with him so I have the time and am happy making any profit, even if it is just $50 or $100, etc. I can send it to my bank and use it if needed.  Can you please look at this again and hopefully you will be able to remove your downvotes so I can have my little $9 or $10 back I earned. Thank you.

Hi sorry that I didn't drop a message (just as much as I don't comment on the reasons for anything I upvote). I'm currently following a downvote trail on reward disagreement. It's something that's going to happen more in general with the new update to hopefully produce a healthier Steem value in the future so more people can benefit from it. I'd also suggest that you use your downvotes on anything you think is over-rewarded (maybe especially in trending). Hope you understand. Best regards.

Thank for the explanation. I understood new downvote policy(if I can say so). But wonder if it will be helpful for steemit.
Writers are human being who have feelings. so hope it doesn't encourage another endless debates.
when people say 'it's not personal' actually it is quite often.

I call bs...this is not content...its discussion about blockchain...

This blockchain is suppose to support social media, thats interaction between people... doing things like laughing, showing family photos, pictures of your dog, your political views, videos of of diy projects or anything that is a normal interaction between people, like telling your friends your having a garage sale to get rid of your shit.  Or passing a meme around of a hot dog eating a hamburger.

Instead you guys down vote all that stuff because we promote it.  Even when it's original content.   Your so full of shit it's discugusting.  Having a voter get as much as an Author is abortion, it says don't produce find a producer that has others already voting for it and BANDWAGON IT..... that's bull... that's not discovering and rewarding content and you know it......the fact that an Author doesn't get paid for a good article after 7 days is the real problem.

I've read tutorials on steem that were a year old and posts just over a week.  If Upvote the author gets nothing!

THAT IS WHY STEEM IS A FAILURE.... ON YOUTUBE OR ANY WEBSITE VOTES AND IMPRESSIONS ARE PAID NOT MATTER WHEN THEY COME IN.  

WHO WOULD EVER SPEND SERIOUS TIME, MONEY AND RESOURCES TO PUT A VIDEO SERIES ON THIS THE BLOCKCHAIN... After all you are not rewarded for it after a week.   In the case of viral content it slowly builds over months.  The Author loses out over time.  So there is no stack in them continuing to promote the old good content.   So the block chain has an opportunity cost lose because they are de incentivizing content creation overall, and promotion of it.  

It's truly pathetic!

Yes, I agree Steemit Inc should've poured more resources into making evergreen content / voting work. 

I guess we'll have to disagree on whether my posts here are content or not. And also on bidbots. If I advertise on Facebook, I expect to be forking out money, not expecting an ROI out of it. If Steem's paying people to promote, then it's truly worthless. ie, there ought to be better ways to promote.
