They Took My Impact Away Hardfork 18 - 12/04/2017
Hello Steemian I will be continuing on from the initial reaction of Hardfork 18.
Last time we talked about the 7 days payment reward system.

Before we go on I just want to mention that at no point do I claim to fully understand everything that is going on or that I am some big pro steemit coder.
We continue looking at what is being asked.

### So one thing many have pointed out is that now with the Hardfork 18 is that votes no longer have an immediate visible affect.

Unlike the awesome whale experiment I mentioned on the previous post it gave many new voters the satisfaction of impact.
It's now gone but I think folks it might come back after these initial low reward days are behind us.
I mean I think I have seen myself the odd shift in numbers on occasion.

But others dont think we will really see an impact on our voting because of the time value portion.
Or in other words an early vote doesn't make much of a move as a late vote.
This is because of the benefits on being early, so it simply wont show up in the payout, well not until day 2 or even 7.
And so obviously by that time the voter would have a really hard time understanding how hes vote as even made any impact, or not...

This would be because in my opinion most of the votes will be on day 1 well and of course depending on how the trending page will work itself out.
But also remember most will probably want to get their vote in sooner rather then later as I am sure by day 2 there will still be votes, day 3 very little, and day 4 maybe the odd 2 or 4.
But again this could change in future because of the number of active users.

I think it also magnifies the influence of dolphins and whales. With 7 days worth of votes it's much more likely whale dolphins voting will cluster on the same posts.

Yea good point but if everybody is voting on the same posts could that possibly make the rewards less distributed to those who may have also produced good content?
