Didn't consider doing this when communities were in beta?
By the way, in case you dont know, you have to ensure that you are actually posting to a community when testing them. Your first tag should be the tag for the community, and if you use the UI, you should ensure "posting to blog" is not selected. I have attached some helpful example screenshots for you below.
### Posting to SteemDevs community

### What you did

To be honest, I wasn't expecting that. I find it kind of strange that what you post in your community isn't under blog. After all, it's still your blog, just a specific division of it. Of course I know that's just a front-end display, but still.
Hey there you fucking worthless sellout!!!
Now that you have no stake, get the fuck outta here!!!
Haven't you taken enough from this community by dumping and selling your ill-gotten stake? Now you stick around to rub it in everyones faces? Go fuck yourself.
I know what you (and many others) mean, at first I was also shocked, but couldn't it actually have been the best decision to sell Steemit? Now, for example, Steemit, Inc. doesn't need to sell STEEM every month anymore.
At least I concede to @ned that he had the best intentions, and I would suggest to make peace with the past, where there are good and not so good memories, and concentrate on the future ... The remaining team members of Steemit, Inc. doesn't seem to see the change that negative ...
Anyway, I am not here to argue, and obviously the clear majority disagrees with my point of view.
Wish you a good time! :)
(By the way, my idea to limit the influence of single huge stake holders would be to grant every account not more than five to (at maximum) ten witness votes ...)
I thought this was pretty tame compared to Bernie's articulate statements ;)
I also get what you mean and I know the rest of the Steem Inc. team are committed to making good on the promises they've made.
It was interesting to see that most of the team seemed surprised with the announcement, though aware of a 'deal'.
In the past, Steemians would scream into the void and ask for clarification on a wide range of actions from Steem Inc and get ZERO feedback. Community concerns were ignored and instead we got guitar ballads.
There has certainly been a giant improvement in communication from the Steem devs and from Steem Inc./management starting in 2019. Nevertheless, it shouldn't have taken 3.5 years for this to happen.
I never understood why the head of a social media platform preferred to use a competitor than his own product.
##### Twitter over Steemit.
##### Telegram over Steemit.
##### Slack over Steemit.
He may have his reasons but it always gave the wrong signal and most often actions speak louder than words.
At every turn the Steem community was always been an afterthought behind self-interest and self-advancement.
What happened to the ninja mine steemit stake being distributed to the community, or was that never the plan? It seems that stake has been sold.
Personally, I'm excited about communities launching and am looking ahead.
I agree with your sentiments on reducing the number of witness votes.
It's very possible that this event could be the best thing to happen to Steem. We'll have to wait and see. I do hope to see a Steem resurgence one day... it's still possible but I think it will come from the bottom-up and not the top-down.
