Restoring Community Governance

in steem •  2 years ago 

Dear Steemians,

As we stated two weeks ago our goal to return governance back to the community, we have now officially removed all temporary witnesses. We appreciate the hard work these witnesses have dedicated to protecting Steem and the community. It’s dedication like this to the Steem ecosystem that will help us overcome the recent challenges, but most importantly, bring blockchain and cryptocurrency to the masses.

As the core developer of Steemit.com and Steem, we will try our best to stay neutral and we will not engage with community decisions in the future.

We look forward to continued collaboration with witnesses and the community to get back to the things that really matter. Supporting existing projects, things like improving the status of steemit.com, adding features to communities (in progress!) and ultimately creating the best place for all people to enjoy great content, share content and enjoy all the rewards that come with being a Steemian.

As we can now look to the future, we will continue to share updates more frequently and continue to listen and engage with this amazing community. In the meantime, please stay safe and well.

The Steemit Team

Censoring certain posts you don't like (about hive) at the api level is restoring governance?

you are a joke, steem is dead, and you are the reason

Can we get some specific plans on how you will create more value with steem? So far we have seen a lot of vague statements and promises, but nothing concrete. Would love to hear some specifics from you guys...

For example:

  1. In the past you mentioned that you would get more exchange listings for steem, which exchanges are you targeting?

  2. You mentioned on-boarding more users to steem, how do you plan to do that exactly, more advertising, integrating other websites etc?

  3. You mentioned more community tools for steem, what tools are you referring to, SMTs?

  4. You mentioned several times bringing crypto and steem to the masses, what specific steps will you take to help make that a reality?

The community would love to hear some specifics on things instead of generalized statements.

It's so disheartening that a specific and neutral question such as this gets no response.

You have replaced sockpuppets with loyalists, you are still enforcing the policy that witnesses are loyal to you with the ninja-mined stake.

Also several may still just be sockpuppets by the looks of things. You couldn't even find 20 people to lend you credibility xD

Here is a profile on a new Steem witness and a quick look at a 2nd new witness. To say they leave a lot to be desired is an understatement.

You removed all "temporary witnesses"? Then what are those? And the more important question, why are you still voting for them? What's the difference between sockpuppets installed by you or those paid cocksuckers that do everything you tell them to do?

Paid😆You have good imagination☺

So JS didn't offer them 2.5k$ monthly to run their node? Strange, that multiple people already confirmed this, independent from one another...

That's just a rumor. Did you see any evidence? Many people are fooled by the previous top 20 witnesses and whales. They didn't remove steemit's stake, instead, they make it to steem.dao, and it's for the proposals. And guess who can get the votes and take the funds? The previous top 20 witnesses and whales. Their cross voting can get themselves much of the things.
Besides, top 20 witnesses gets much increased SP, that increase the total circulation, and make usual people like your and my assets' value shrink.

It doesn't really matter. Justin doesn't need them anymore, as we speak the blockchain is being censored through the API endpoint so even Steempeak doesn't show the censored posts any more. I am seeing a dystopia unfold here. There is a growing list of people that don't have equal speaking rights in Justin's little kingdom. Of course that doesn't matter for people like you and Hive might feel like a dictatorship.

Just know that if you burn yourself on anything, which I have seen happen to basically everyone piece by piece, just give it time...

You will be welcome on the other side.

And just like that by mentioning the big H I already went against the new terms and conditions again, oops!

glhf!

Two very true statements.

About the difference between the stake here and there: steem.dao doesn't have keys and can only be moved by hardforking, which means that every witness has to be on board to do anything. That makes a huge difference. You could say it's just a way to represent the stake, it cannot do anything as it stands. Meanwhile, you cannot deny the stake is not just in Justin's hands here, but actively being abused.

I wait while I let you do the math.

Really? Can you show your references? The fund of approved SPS are from steem.dao, as you said, if there's no keys, the fund can only move by hardfork. That doesn't make sense.

The SPS funds are through SBD and those are programmed in as an on-chain app that follows rules. Nobody does that with keys, it's just in the blockchain rules. SP is by definition not mobile, so the SP is just parked on that keyless account and cannot be accessed except by a hardfork. There will be a vote about the accounts that the next hardfork should give the HP equivalent of SP etc, but it's still up to the witnesses if they will run that or not.

Talking about evidence... Any evidence brought up here is being erased, so that's not a fair game...

Talking about DLT... Data on chains can't be easily erased. Maybe you should study more about it.

This isn't a DLT. This is a selection of DLT data availed the apps of choice via the APIs they use. How do you know what is or isn't in the blockchain?

Perhaps you should study more about it.

I don't actually know. But I have changed to use steempeak for a long time. The team mainly support Hive now, so there would be little possibility of censor of the blockchain.

If you're not being paid, maybe Justin just doesn't think you're as valuable as the others ? You should bring that up next time you suck him off.

Being a top 20 witness brings in $1,660 in revenue per month at current Steem price. The vote to place you in top 20 = being paid.

Interesting perspective. So top 20 witnesses on HIVE are mostly paid by freedom, pumpkin, and themselves😆

No, they're paid from the pool of new tokens generated by inflation, just as they are here. The voters backing them merely choose them to get paid, and don't pay them directly.

Uh yeah, they're paid by the stakeholder community voting for them. Whereas here it comes down in its virtual entirety to Justin Sun.

Taxing this gif!

The post is signed:
"The Steemit Team"

Which individuals constitutes the team? Is it a secret? Or is it still a remaining one man "team"?

we will try our best to stay neutral and we will not engage with community decisions in the future.

Are you going to unvote all witnesses @dev365 is voting for?
Do you plan on declining your voting rights?

Oh, well at least you'll try. It's the thought that counts, eh?

It would be rude of us, when you inevitably continue to take total control, to say you didn't at least try

Yeah right, now that the entire community left and started powering down and dumping their STEEM. You are a fucking joke.

Where is all your support now?

Oh it's two people ...

They'll be here soon to downvote all the negative comments.

As the core developer of Steemit.com and Steem, we will try our best to stay neutral and we will not engage with community decisions in the future.

Now... after everybody left!?!😲
PS: Maybe it's a joke... 1st of April...

you know that you are still voting with 70+mil steem on witnesses? and that is kinda a bit influencing the decisions of the community.

This is perfect.

Thanks Eirik, these were pretty funny to make. Been too busy lately though.

Is community surrounded by air quotes?

I was going to keep some Steem but whats the point 🤣

Who is the Steemit Team? Who are the members?

What's your vision for Steem moving forward?

Move it to TRON, remove the witness system and instead let JS personally validate all transactions.

  1. Hardfork for faster powerdown
  2. ??????
  3. Profit!

is that happenin still I suppose 🤣

This is

POWERDOWN 3 DAYZ.jpg

IF U REED DIS, PLEEEEZ MEKES POWERSDOWN 3 DAYS!
COMMUNITY WILL LOVE U FOR DAT!

Because it fucks the entire mechanics of Steem.

Oh right... That happened already.

haha, I think it would be great for STEEM xD really hahahahaha

Lies

Was this really published on April 1st? For a second I believed it true... Good catch!

The Steemit Team

what for a team?

Remember how he talked to himself on Twitter? Turns out he also likes to refer to himself as 3rd person, so The Steemit Team == Justin Sun.

One Man Show.

If you were really trying your best to "stay neutral" you would :

  • Unvote your new hand picked puppet government
  • Undo the recent censorship of users and posts from the frontend and API nodes
  • Retract and apologize for calling the previously elected governance "malicious hackers"

For a start. But you won't, and it's waaaay too late anyway. The engagement on this post should be a clue.

It took just over a day for you to show everybody that the community does not fit in to your governance plans.

#STEEM and #HIVE are a twin pair.
And after Justin has had his payout, the community will be able to build a twin paired CryptoCurrency.
We need both Chains in the Hands of the Community.
Just wait for it , get ready for, and then we will get it.
Please stay active on both Chains, we want to own both.

Who is this post even directed at? Honestly, are there any people in the Steem community that believe what you're saying or are they just buying into the new idea of a centralised Steem. I think I will stay around just for entertainment purposes and proxy my witness vote to Justin.

I'm counting on it.
It's very good.

How we can get delegation for #LAKSHMI community development?

I think Justin Sun is being very stingy with his delegations. There is so much stake in @misterdelegation that he could lend out. Every worthy project should get free SP instead of needing to buy it on the market.

Thanks for reply.
How can we contact @justinsunsteemit ? Because this account is not replying, can you know other sources to contact him?

consider to check our witness about cryptocurrency with manual curation. we miss the steemit vote to get noticed in top100 despite community help already.

Well, I appreciate this info, as I had been voting your witness since you weren't running 22.5. Gonna have to withdraw that vote asap.

Thanks!

Lol, you added me right before this comment to say you removed me :D begging for votes?... Grow yourself some kiddo

Your comment was timely, immediately following my housecleaning regarding witness votes.

Otherwise, your puerile assumptions are showing. Why are you running 0.0.0 software? How is that a 'witness'?

Cant help you dont know how witness stuff works. Let me help you. I just started, you need enough vp behind you to get your first block. The update and running version is in that block. Before that, it shows like this. + I replied because you are fishing for votes of your friends and talk bs, otherwise I wouldn't even bother. Good luck on the other side though!

So will you be speaking out against the new softfork that restricts accounts? This seems like total hypocrisy by Steemit and needs to be exposed.

I am wisely holding my piece. Don't know what will happen in the future and I am here to make steem great. That hasn't changed. I completely understand the frustration and uncertainty. I am nobody, my opinion is not even heard.

Well as a witness you ought to take a stand. Are you for or against freezing accounts?

Well, don't bother since you're own bias, vanity, and assumptions (completely, demonstrably false) are the only reason you're replying.

Never, ever have I fished for votes for me, if anything I've done the opposite since coming here, stating I don't care about my personal wallet whatsoever. I have previously advocated for others, including recently for a new witness, @r0nd0n,but nothing in anything I have posted regarding you, this OP, or since advocating for @r0nd0n,supports your fantastic hallucinatory aspersions.

Remain ludicrous. It helps me get through the day to have something to laugh at.

No need to promote me here, this place is dead to me. In fact, I wouldn't have even seen this if it weren't for the new soft fork fiasco taking place.

I was only trying to be accurate and factual in what I said, and am aware you are done witnessing here.

That's what sucked me in: adjusting my witness votes while I still have stake.
