Now That the Era of Bid Bots May Come to an End, I'm Considering Buying STEEM and Powering Up Again
I haven't been following Steemit almost at all for about two or so years, so I'm out of the loop on most things, but I've read that the recent hardfork did something to finally make bid bots a little less profitable, and some of them have even ceased operation entirely.

If this is true, I may consider buying some STEEM and powering it up, and starting to actively use the site again. Maybe, still undecided.

I'm mostly interested in who's still here.

Oh, yeah. I haven't touched crypto exchanges since, idk, 2017, or early 2018. I have read that they've gotten more difficult to use. I don't think I can even use Poloniex and Bittrex anymore due to them requiring me to ID myself.

The fork seems to have shaken up the trending page a bit anyway and I've even spotted some whales curating!

Well @schattenjaeger, I am certainly one of those who are still here.

Could use a few more talented creative writers in the Creative Coin Tribe *thing,* if you're interested.  It *could* help get more eyes on the prize, since it can't get buried in the spam on Steemit.  If you're interested, just use 'creativecoin' as one of your tags and I'll keep an eye out.  I know you don't like me too much but that doesn't mean I stopped enjoying  that stuff you used to write.

Ha! :) I want to buy it for quite a long time, but also saw the whole downfall unfolding in front of us. With new HF, at least for now, things are really looking way better than previous year. 

Not sure if that is going to last, but it's a right step in right direction!

Definitely worth a consideration. The price is pretty low too so easier for you to make splash.

This is really encouraging news, you've been a Steem barometer for me this whole time :)

Yes, you read that correctly. And more of that stake is getting allocated towards manual curation.

The userbase is smaller than it was when STEEM was at $3+. Perhaps most notably is the lack of "follow for follow" and "Upvote for upvote" people. Whether they're sorely missed or not is another question.

Imo the exciting part now is to build Steem back up again with the new rules in the way in which I envision that it could be. So I guess the price makes that opportunity new and something that wasn't here 2 years ago.

One way or another, I'll be here to do my part.
