The Fork has Dropped,
and it took a little while to settle.
Well, actually two forks dropped, and then the nodes needed a full replay. This caused several lengthy service outages in the steem ecosystem over the past few days, but we're back now and running stable. We'll keep our fingers crossed the chain stays up and running from here on.
Looking at the bright side, the chain halted to prevent any potentially erroneous transactions from being included on the chain, and that's the mechanism that keeps all our funds safu. The outages are a nuisance, but hard-forking a scaled and decentralized blockchain protocol is not an easy task at all. Nuisances put aside, we've made it through unscathed.
Now it remains to be seen how the "economic improvements" and the proposed #newsteem culture-change will impact the platform as a whole. The loss in author-rewards might not feel so great right now, but if the platform as a whole sees betterment, I firmly believe this will have been worth it, eventually.
The fork also corrected a small error in the SBD print-rate calculation, this results in zero liquid SBD rewards for now. The SBD prize-pool will not be used in a regular manner from here on out until the SBD print-rate hopefully goes up again. The remaining balance will be used to send out 0.001 SBD notifications with memos to the winners only.
Some instant good news: We have started receiving PHOTO rewards on these announcements here, and of course those will be used like all the other rewards here, everything goes back to our winners and we're opening the new PHOTO prize-pool today.
And also, this is issue number 99, yes, ninety-nine, so the next one is going to be a big one, but that's really all up to you, post your best googly ideas, and if you can make it a bit celebratory for this one, I'd be more than pleased!

I haven't fully integrated the tribe bookkeeping in there, yet. You'll find it way off to the right: columns BE to BK.

🥁 AND HERE ARE OUR WINNERS: 🥁
🥉 Today's 3rd winner is: 🥉
We're starting today, again, with a little story time from Čimísek, again. Well, actually this time we're not in the Grove but @krakonos still manages to stay in the theme. 3 jury votes for another 3rd prize. Congrats!
🥈 The 2nd winner is: 🥈
And winning 2nd, it's @marblely, and this time there's no bubbles and no sink in sight. No, this one is just pure deliciousness wrapped in gold. Of course there's a marblely signature GIF, too, though. Go there to enjoy the treat and kudos to @marblely for this gold-wrapped 2nd prize.
🥇 And Our Grand Winner is: 🥇
Last but not least, our grand winner today is @wakeupkitty. Quite witty what she did there with this egg-carton and some eyes for the Artstorm contest by @deemarshall. Good luck with that one, but she already won big with it over here, so it's a winner either way! CONGRATUMALATIONS!
another drumroll, please
