We're getting close to the last days of October. Let's see if we can get you a digest of interesting and news-worthy posts to read.



Welcome Back Gina!

If you're late to the commotion, Gina went offline and was terribly missed by Steemians.

Had no idea that she's a resource hog at around 50GB/day internet bandwidth. @neander-squirrel wrote the above post and everybody sent their support to revive Gina.

Thanks to @reggaemuffin for stepping in and neander-squirrel for all he does.

Gina, we missed you. Glad you got a new home.

Ned says he's on Tweetcation and can be reached at steem.chat. So when you see activity on his page, it's a surprise to see him back on Steemit.

Where is he? Find out for yourself.

Steemit's Roadmap Grilled



Click on image to visit the post.

Ooops, fibbed on the previous headline. This one is the long read.

Does Steemit Inc have a solid roadmap?

The latest SteemitBlog post is signed by Ned so you can go have a look at what we're facing ahead.

While reading the thread started by @tcpolymath, it dawned on me that we have really SMART Steemians who can read text and read between the lines.

Check the discussion linked above.

Ok ok, go ahead and just click it here.

YOU-topian is For You!



Click on image to visit the post.

Most Steemians relate Utopian to open source and anything technical. It's true but that's not all of it.

They are a witness and they are making Steem better for YOU. You meaning any Steemian of any background.

You don't even have to be a programmer to contribute. If you're a regular user of an open source tool and you find a funky feature, don't just complain about it. Document it and make a contribution.

They published a weekly for their great accomplishments. It's a great read and you should be impressed enough to give them your witness vote. They're teetering between 20 and 21 so help them cement their place on the top 20.

Here's a sneak peek of their weekly.

  • Utopian's partnership with CoinGecko
  • Utopian's support of anti-abuse efforts
  • Utopian's support for MSP Waves

Witness Corner: Quochuy Finds a Gem Effect of HF20



Click on image to visit the post.

HF20 caused a lot of grief for new accounts, active accounts and yes, spammers.

Witnesses might find @Quochuy's post a great read. Not just for the tool but for the metrics he's tracking.

If you're not a witness and want to help fight abuse on the platform, please read it too. This is a smile-envoking post.

Always look forward to reading @steemitweekly, a great summary of the happenings on the steem blockchain. Although there seems to be no mention of the current flag war between, you know who and @fulltimegeek. I think when someone is willing to give up on some significant rewards to make the steem blockchain a better place, they should get a mention. Plus, who doesn't like drama??

Ps. Anyone who resteems the @steemitweekly post and comments on this comment (please tag me so I can track it), will get an upvote! (The value will depend on the quality of your post/comment as evaluated by yours truly)

Damn, man. I hate having your comments and posts invisible. You are one of the good Steemians to have around. You deserve better.

Now, back to the issue at hand.

We intentionally took out the heavy drama because they both need to get along. We actually need them to fight together not against each other. There's a lot more problems needing to be tackled other than them fighting each other.

Thanks for being our only comment this week! We hope for more quality interaction.

Maybe we should have used our SBD to bid bot it? Hahaha

Enjoy your next couple of weeks!

Thanks @steemitweekly :)

I've actually got used to it now. It also means I get a lot less spam comments!! Why the front end designers don't create a solution where followers can choose to see the content of people they follow without having to click through, I don't understand. @steemit @busy.org @partiko @steempeak, anyone listening?

Back to our main topic...

I am not a fan of bidbots, what @steemitweekly needs is circulation and the upvotes will follow.

Some form of incentives for the first few resteems may help? I am happy to give out upvotes to those that do it, maybe if we can get a few other "sponsors" to do the same, we may be at the beginning of creating our own little news media organisation here on the steem blockchain!

Currently have 5 resteems, we need this to be in the 100s if not 1000s.

Last week, we had 6 resteems.

Let me try something...

Welp, I know what's missing... we didn't resteem it on our main accounts. Sometimes life's a blur.

Correcting it now...

Thanks for all you do. You're definitely getting less spam since they won't take the time to unhide your post or comment...unless it's a bot

We're aiming for wide readership so everyone can find valuable information or drama . Sometimes you're on your own bubble it's great to venture out every now and then.

Welp, I know what's missing... we didn't resteem it on our main accounts. Sometimes life's a blur.

Ahh...that could do it. That makes me a bit sad really because my Resteems did nothing. I do see one person from my manual promotional attempt commenting here + a few votes as well.

I almost think HF20 spooked too many people out.

Why have you flagged my post

Maybe we need to take the @ned approach and make an announcement about a possible announcement.

Do we have any good marketing people who could help with circulation?

"Sometimes life's a blur."

I can relate to that. Steem is my little escape from all the various projects I am working on. Every so often I need to prune the desire to work on so many things and refocus

@kabir88

We appreciate your approach to draw more readers.

For a weekly issue, our goal is to have as much engagement as possible. The bigger upvotes are nice, but the lack of comments does make the staff feel a little dead inside.

Maybe you can update your post @steemitweekly to let people know about the incentive for resteems?

Thanks @mhossain for the resteem! I will upvote your latest blog

Thank you @sheikhsayem for the resteem. Your upvote is on its way

Thank you @abbak7 @aburashed @admiralbot @ayasha @kingsofa @mathowl @pataty69 @rezoanulvibes for the resteem of @steemitweekly, some upvotes coming your way.

Wow, if only the mainstream news acted like that 😮

We are trying to bring some informative fun and be responsible at the same time. Sometimes very tough.
In that battle we are friends with both sides and it is not fun.

In the interim since my last comment, I clicked over to Medium, where I read an entire article devoted to whether or not people making the "ok" sign were actually white supremacists involved in a vast secret conspiracy to make hand signs and take over the world. It was not satire.

Steem.
Must.
Succeed.

YEAHHH! Steem on netcoins. I think we have a huge chance to climb further to the top and maybe make it to the first place, at least I hope so. I personally think this is a most important contest and honestly, everybody should support steem with a daily vote at netcoins!

Great curation! Have a most amazing day, everybody!

Things are looking up for sure!

In a small post, there are many things to know. Really Great! Thanks, @kabir88 for your initiative got to know about @steemitweekly.
Thanks ♥️

We aim for concise delivery and are grateful that @kabir88 is helping us with publicity!

Looks like we get interesting news about Steemit on a single post. Awesome! Keep it up!

Thank you @kabir88 for making a post about this. And that's how, I found out about @steemitweekly.

Be sure to catch us each week for the best picks on blockchain drama.

Thought you were going to make it a drama free zone? :p

We report drama. We don't incite it.

Drama is very important. Come here for the rewards, stay for the drama! lol...
hmm... Is that right, @kabir88? :p

Haha, it is social media after all. What society is complete without some drama? There's only so much pictures and musings on life that one can take before craving that drama! :))

haha... so true!
Have some fun, get to know each other and connect with people. Don't be too serious. It's a social media after all :)

But the money aspect adds so much more spice!

Agree with that. What we are doing here, we are rewarded financially for our effort and contribution. That's the beauty of Steem blockchain.

Hadn't seen an example yet of HF20 stopping spammers. Pretty neat :)
