LET US LIGHTEN OUR MOOD FROM THIS WEEK'S FIASCO ON STEEMIT!

3년 전

Greetings all!

I would like to start out with a short discussion on the HF20. This fiasco wiped out all my voting power and I am still not near the capacity I like to be at when I vote on people's posts and upvote comments left by you. As I noted in last weekend's post I was going out of town and would start upvoting and replying when I returned. As I am sure you are aware the fork took place and totally wiped out my voting power. I believe I had only voted once in 3 days. Here we are 4 days later and my voting power still has not recovered. In fact it is now slightly above where I take a break from voting and commenting (to rebuild my power) so each person who comments gets a similar reward. I know it is not my fault what took place but I wanted to offer my apology to all who did not get an upvote. As for new followers, I hope you find this post today and know that I do everything I can to upvote followers comments. This did not take place because of my neglect, instead the blame lies on those who are behind HF20.



I read in someone's post yesterday where someone with a high reputation (that was involved in the fork) indicated that they did not think things through very well. No kidding was my response, or at least my attempted response. I do not believe my comment got posted because the system was "glitchy" (there I go making up words like they have). I have feeling that they did not test the fork like most forks in blockchains do. It almost seems as though they tested it out on all of us. I still do not fully understand what all the new terminology means. I do believe this will impact those with minimal voting power the most.


In last weekend's post I alluded to the fact that many of my followers were being attacked by bots (or maybe real people) for self voting. It looks like you will be punished if you self-vote now, so until you fully understand it do not self-vote. I suggested that instead of self-voting, vote on each other's comments. I am saying again today that this method is a cleaner option for you. So if someone votes on your comment, then vote on theirs. It may be that you make a little more earnings.


I trust everyone is being patient with me thus far, because I am going to post photographs soon.


I also want you to consider looking at weku. It is similar to Steemit before they did this hardfork. It does not cost anything to sign up and there is no waiting period like steemit does. They also give you 100 weku (there equivalent to steem), and it takes a couple of days to show up in your wallet. Now the true value of weku is unknown and you cannot sell it. I view this as an opportunity to build up weku for when it does launch on an exchange. So take a few minutes and check it out. Some of you are already there, and there are many others from steemit. It has been very friendly place. And who knows you may see photos I have not posted here. My user name is the same as on steemit. Here is my referral link: https://deals.weku.io/pick_account?referral=r2cornell

Alright, let us get on with some photographs. I know most love to see a Rose first and this week I think we all need a pretty rose to brighten our mood. This is one of my climbing roses, which has yet to show any sign of climbing. I believe it's name is Jacob's Coat.

This next is a macro-shot of a weed/herb that is called St. John's Wort. It is suppose to be good for depression, but I dry the flowers and use it with some other herbs to make a salve.

IMG_2753-a.JPG

Here is a macro-shot of a flower that was in a bouquet my wife got last summer. I am not sure what flower it is, except is is very beautiful:

IMG_2745-a.JPG

Here is a flower with a bee busy collecting pollen:

IMG_3034-a.JPG

Here is a photograph of a Dianthus:

IMG_3200-a.JPG

This next photograph i was taken at the edge of my daughter's property, which is directly behind mine. A very nice view in my opinion:

IMG_3625-a.JPG

I hope you have enjoyed this weekend's post. Just remember I may not start replying and upvoting comments until tomorrow. Maybe, just maybe I will have most of my voting power back.

I am using a Canon EOS Rebel T5 for all of these photographs, except where noted. Most of my floral photographs I am using a Marco-lens that came with my camera.

Upvotes and resteem are always welcome. In the event anyone wants to use one of my photos please ask and give me credit.

And about self voting...
When you self vote within first 15min your mana gets punished..

Hardfork 20 had a bad impact on our mood because we could not interact with the community for several days.But your photography is so nice that it boosted my mood.Thats great.I think you love nature as well as flower.

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it. Glad I could have a part in lifting your mood.

Beautiful photography sir. I love your flowers photography. Rose is my favourite.

Great..Beautiful flowers photography. I liked it. Nature of beauty..

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it

·
·

You are welcome sir

We are not concerned about the issue of voting power because this is also a temporary problem, we are glad you really appreciate us. And we look more at the photos you share.
Thanks @r2cornell

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it. I am hoping that more visitors come back. The number of comments are down, but then those who have not gotten here may be confused as to what the changes mean.

Excellent very impressive photography. I love flowers very much especially rose it is king of flowers. One rose from my side my dear.

Thank u soo much

Photography yang sangat luar biasa teman @r2cornell.

·

Terima kasih banyak. Saya sangat menghargainya.

Good sir, how are you today? in this morning I didn't comment much on your posts, because your post is very good, I really like the honest posts I say. how cool is the post, just good, cool and very impressed with how you take pictures. thanks.

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it. I am doing well today.

Now my voting power is 100% as 3 days ago I vote someone and my 80% power was gone. Looks like now everything is ok, but steemit has changed some rules like self voting as you described. But Weku is also very friendly platform like steemit. Hope weku will be a most stable social platform. Anyway I always appreciate your brilliant photography and your kind words. God gifts you a happy long life.

·

Thank you. I continue having difficulty upvoting and posting a reply. Yesterday I had difficulty getting this post up and ended up with a duplicate...Yeeesh!

·

You posted comment first. Sorry about the duplicate post. I was having problems uploading post and went to a different web browser. So now I have duplicate posts...

  ·  3년 전

Wonderful photography like always...
And about self voting...
When you self vote within first 15min your mana gets punished... So don't self vote for first 15min...this is as simple as it can get.

And when you vote someone in first 15 min, upto 80% of the payout reward goes to steem reward pool instead of the beneficiary... So if you want to reward someone completely vote after 15min too. This is a real concern when upvoting comments as comments usually require more dynamic engagement than blog posts.
Hope it helps...

For further insight here is a post...

So if we upvote post or comment after the first 15 minutes people will be okay? I am so concerned for those who really need the little they earn on steemit. That was why I used to get upset at bots that would downvote them. It was the first time I ended up flagging...I flagged the bot until it had no reputation left.

I will test this out on one of my comments later and see what happens. Thanks for the information. I have tried reading on all of this but it is scattered all over the place instead having a definite list.

Yeah wait at least 15 min.... That's the easiest way to proceed...

Thank you very much. I appreciate it

Greetings Mr. @r2cornell, the application of HF20, for all has been terrible, in my case my voting power is small, and is completely canceled for several days, the system did not allow me to do anything, after waiting several days, only I was able to publish the photo contest post in which I am participating, but I could not even vote, because a single publication consumed all my resources, only today I could do something on the platform, and it has not been easy either because the internet service in my house, it has been terrible all day, at this time I have been able to enter steemit.
Regarding his photographs, as always my favorite is the rose, it is wonderful, but being honest, it was difficult to choose a favorite this week, because all the photographs are beautiful, I loved how the bokeh of the second photograph stayed. This past week, I was testing a tele-macro lens, which I do not use because it is very bulky and heavy and I have taken some photos that have been, in my opinion, quite well, I hope soon to be able to put together a publication to show the result of my photographic exercise
Well, for now I say goodbye, hoping that next week will be of great benefit to you and your family.

Saludos Sr. @r2cornell, la aplicación del HF20, para todos ha sido terrible, en mi caso mi poder de voto es pequeño, y quede completamente anulada por varios días, el sistema no me permitía hacer nada, después de esperar varios días, solo pude publicar el post del concurso de fotografía en el que estoy participando, pero ni siquiera pude votar, porque una sola publicación consumió todos mis recursos, recién hoy he podido hacer algo en la plataforma, y tampoco ha sido fácil porque el servicio de internet en mi casa, ha estado todo el día terrible, a esta hora es que he podido entrar a steemit.
Referente a sus fotografías, como siempre mi preferida es la rosa, es maravillosa, pero siendo sincera, fue difícil elegir esta semana una preferida, porque todas las fotografías están hermosas, me encantó como quedo el bokeh de la segunda fotografía. Esta semana pasada, estuve probando un lente tele-macro, que no acostumbro a usar porque es muy voluminoso y pesado y he sacado algunas fotos que han quedado, a mi parecer, bastante bien, espero pronto poder armar una publicación para mostrar el resultado de mi ejercicio fotográfico.
Bueno, por ahora me despido, esperando que la semana próxima sea de gran provecho para usted y su familia.

·

La semana pasada fue difícil de muchas maneras, no solo el desastre de Steemit. Esperemos que la energía de la vida se alivie y podamos ir con más calma cuando entremos en octubre. Los comentarios de esta semana son mucho más bajos de lo normal. Pensé que eso podría suceder.

Gracias en lo que respecta a los comentarios de flores. Me calmé cuando comencé a revisar algunas fotografías. Además, ayer recogí un montón de mi jardín y un buen ejercicio que siempre ayuda.

Que tengas una buena tarde.

·

This past week was rough in many ways, not just steemit's mess. Hopefully life's energy will ease up and we will have a smoother go as we enter into October. This weeks comments are much lower than normal. I thought that might happen.

Thank you in regards to comments of flowers. I calmed down as I started going through some photographs. Plus yesterday I did get a lot of my garden harvested and some good excercise which always helps.

Have a great evening.

as a photographer i can say this is very good work!

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it

·
·

welcome sir.... please see my post.

Amazing photography sir. You are such a kind man. I love you.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it.

·

Thank you very much.

Flowers that are very beautiful and very natural. It's fun to enjoy. Thank you sir.

·

Thank you very much.

I like flower photography.

·

Thank you very much, and thank you for visiting my blog. Welcome!

Dear Mr. R2cornell, I started following you last week. I was drawn to your beautiful flower and I'm so glad that I opened your post and read what you had to say because it is like you are sitting right here and talking to me! You have a lovely spirit about your work. Thank you. I'm just starting to undetstand the system here on Steemit and did follow you over to WEKU, I hope you got the recognition. Looking forward to seeing more of your posts!

·

Thank you. What is your user name on WeKu? did you friend me? Looking forward to your presence on WeKu. You may have been one of many who did not get an upvote last week. Connect with me on weku and I will make it up to you.

·
·

Hello again! I'd like to thank you also for responding to my comment. My username on Weku is brenda-271. I signed up but havent made my introduction or followed anyone yet. I am going through all the rules and regulations before i do an intro. I kind of jumped right into steemit without any real knowledge of what i was doing and want to have more understanding and confidence in before i set a foundation on weku. I will see you there soon! 🌸

I found you on WeKu and followed you. I will try and watch for your introduction post. Most of the rules are similar than they were here before the fork. Good to read up on things though. I had one follower flagged repetitively, with no explanation. The person did have quality photographs but not much discussion/narrative. I explained this to her and she did a great post which is of higher quality. I did not like the fact that the flagging person did not take the time to explain things to her. But that happens here too.

Look forward to seeing you on WeKu.

The rose and the bee are awesome, Canon is best, my neighboor next door has one, also a pro, although he doesn't know Steem.

·

Thank you very much, and thank you for visiting my blog. Welcome!

The Hardfork really distorted a lot of things, let us hope it improves.

Your photos are beautiful as always

·

Thank you. replying to comments seems to be very slow to post and upvote.

great

·

Thank you

You look desperate due to hardfork as everyone of us faced this issue equally but take a big heart and fight this difficult situation which is just temporary. You will get back at normal position once RC re-generated. Voting mana is performing good now. You will notice major changes in steem blockchain.

Well, you have shared good photographs of flower which looks appealing to eyes. Keep Up the good work and don't disheart.

·

Yes I am upset as to how the fork was handled. Seems there was no testing. Most of the people commenting on my post last weekend di not get a reply of upvote from me. That bother's me the most.

Wonderful photography as usual! Thank you

·

Thank you

Nice Photography.Many beautiful flowers.Thank you for sharing

Thanks for discussion about HF20, i think this way is the best. Now everyone stay with steemit seriously. Anyway you join with Weku!! But they are totally copying steemit system. If any platform starting with copy to other platform than what is the future of them? They give 100 weku power and they already registered lots of account but interesting thing maximum account is fake account for signup bonus. Just see their official telegram and discord group, they have just 300+ member!!! How funny!! @r2cornell i think you just waste your time their. If i say anything wrong than i am sorry.

·

When this fork happened it should have been smoother with information summarized all in one place. I had to search and ask others to get a handle on it and I still do not fully understand it. They seem to have tested it live. I am still having people clarifying things for me. It should never of happened that way. There should have been a better way.

I have no idea what will come of weku, but for now it is an outlet I can use, without just cashing things in and walking away. Unfortunately like here on steemit there are assholes flagging newcomers for mistakes and no notification why. On steemit I have seen it, and it seemed to be because someone had low power they could attack them. So weku may turn out the same way.

My comments and visits to my blog are down considerably. I was unable to upvote or comment my followers from last weekend's post (22nd), so they were all out of luck. Some new one's may not be back.

·
·

Yes i notice it. You doing great job for newcomers and also lots of steemian. I appreciate it.

Hi r2cornell,
I just read your post and I think your saying what many are thinking.
Did it get tested? I know the announcements said testnet first, but either the unintended consequences didn’t show up or the developers felt it was a necessary evil, I don’t know.
I post a lot, so I was charged retroactively for the resource credits I used in the day or days right before the hardfork so I was negative resource credits for a day. All I could say was “outstanding” in my best sarcastic voice and wait. But my voting power is almost back, so I am happy!😊
I enjoy the combination of beautiful flowers and crypto, plus the occasional wildlife photo is like a prize. Thanks

@shoersegments
Keep Steeming😊
