I keep getting free money from invisible secret upvotes!

4개월 전

A couple weeks ago, I started to notice large upvotes ($0.15 and up) appearing on some of my comments, but where it normally shows who upvoted the comment, it's blank!

It even specifically says there have been '0' votes. How can a comment without votes have a payout anything other than $0.00?

And yes, the payouts actually happen.

Something I've noticed is these secret upvotes aren't random. They're much more likely to occur on my longer, well-written, thoughtful comments.

I'm thankful for this support, don't get me wrong. I've been pouring effort into this blockchain for nearly 2 years, nonstop, and it would be amazing to finally see some sort of return. Even just enough to buy us a replacement camera, to keep us posting. So these invisible votes are welcomed and appreciated.

Still, I think it's important the site (I'm using Steemit) work correctly, and show data from the blockchain accurately. Something is wrong when it shows 0 votes and a non-zero pending payout.

If you know people who know people who know people, please pass this on to be looked at. Any info would be welcome.

Ironic how your most recent comment says, "You're welcome."

@fulltimegeek, you and I have never had a problem before. It was my understanding we both shared a mutual respect for one another, regardless of beliefs.

Rumors are now beginning to circulate. Some of what is being said is: You, are partially to blame. Blamed for what? Many good people are being bullied and harassed by a few people ACTING like trolls. Everyone knows it's an act. Most folks just brush them off. My problem is, they've been attempting to bully and harass me. One has been doing it for an entire month. Me. What the hell did I ever do, @fulltimegeek, to deserve that? And if these rumors are true. What's up buddy?!?! This isn't making me feel, welcome.

This is my place of business. This is what I do with the hopes of bettering my life. And now I'm hearing you're trying to take that away from me. For what? Is it because I talk to people you don't like? That's bullying. I'm too old for that shit. I also spoke to you a few times, you voted for my work; they never started harassing me about it.

Is it time to grow up, or, are you just going to hate me now for being honest with you? I think it's time to grow up. And if you're wondering who the source is for these rumors, simply read what the trolls say. They're not very good at keeping secrets.

It's because the upvoter are banned on the Steemit Frontend.

Use another frontend ;)

Why is this post flagged so hardly? Counterupvoted

Thanks for the info and support :)
I guess something about my post upset someone. Not sure.

check it on Busy.org and you will see where it is coming from. Also let us know. :)

Why was this post hidden?! There's nothing wrong with it. That's a fraudulent use of flagging. Sorry that happened to you @Drutter.

·

So, someone who is banned on SteemIt, is upvoting him. That's a very short list. So, someone else is opposing the votes.

It's not nice, but it's my guess.

Just take the money and run! Don't ask questions!
Heheeh, jk. It's definitely best to find out what's going on, and why. It seems that perhaps there has been some drama within the leadership of Steemit and associated parties. Hopefully it works out for the community. (But of course, the blockchain will live on regardless!)

The inappropriate censorship on Steemit is becoming a nuissance. That and spam is easier to find than good content like yours. Sorry, @Drutter! Maybe Price's Law might is in effect on Steemit haha ;)

I think those are from fulltime geeks fulltime bots. I here he was kicked off the steemit front end, so it is possible that is what it is. But im not sure. Good job though. Glad to see someone who deserves it, earn :)

·

Yeah Jony looks like you're right, apparently all fulltime's bots got censored.
More fuel for alternate frontends to be developed :)
And the 'chain goes on.
Resteemed to my Steem-centric followers!

Hmmm, ok, thanks for the info. I really don't follow the politics of the site so I don't know much about fulltime geek. Although I recall seeing some 'fulltime bots' giving my comments upvotes over the past couple months. If this is from those bots, I wonder why their names don't show up like before. It's so weird to see 22 cents payout, but zero votes.

Hi, thanks for the link. :) I use that site to check my exact rep, so I'm sure I'm familiar enough with it that I can do a search for fulltimebot upvotes. I'll check it out, thanks.
But why isn't Steemit functioning correctly? Why should a user have to know to go to that 3rd party website, and search for upvotes from a particular group of accounts (fulltimebot)? Shouldn't Steemit just display the number of votes accurately?

Thank you! I hadn't seen that post yet.
It seems to explain some things. Not in a way that leaves me happy, but at least I kinda know what the issue is. Thanks :)

Yeah it is weird. Maybe go on steempeak.com and see if you can veiw it there. Cause steemit is not steem. Nothing can be erased off the block chain. Anyhow, how you doing? Hit me up on discord sometime and lets catch up :)

·

Nope that's your berniesanders and ngc. Sorry but your biggest supporter is flagging. Haha! Wow. Can't even understand what is happening. Must have lost touch.

FUUUUCK I didnt have you on auto upvote, I just realized I am following the curation trail for cannacurate and missing some of your posts, youre on my autovote now.

·

Thanks for the support! But I can't promise I won't post anything controversial... hehe I love being able to state my opinions and beliefs from time to time :) (Thanks, blockchain!!)

@Vantocan's upvotes are worth about $0.0002, not $0.18, so that can't explain it.
Also, if there's 1 vote, why does it claim there are 0 votes (on the comment tab)?
