Like many, when I started with Steemit I found a number of great posts and, like many, I started up-voting immediately. Initially, I was unaware of the 7 day curation period and that my up-vote had no affect once the post had paid out.
Well, I'm pleased to report that @holger80 has a solution. @holger80 has created a utility, well a group of utilities, one of which will allow you to up-vote after the 7 day curation period. Effectively extending the time frame where we can reward the content we choose to support.
Now, I'm personally testing the up-vote functionality after the 7 day curation period. And, it is working as described in the Steemrewarding post. In 7 days, the beneficiaries I've designated should be receiving a reward. I'll keep you posted.
If you decide to use the utility, please check it out thoroughly and make sure you understand the nuances of the Steemrewarding site. @holger80 also has a Discord Channel, so you can contact him directly.
One last thing, @holger80 would like you to support him with your vote for witness. As many of the tools provided by other witnesses, you do not have to vote for @holger80 in order to use the tool. But, I think if someone goes to the trouble of maintaining quality tools for the benefit of the community, why not support them. Anyway, just my thoughts.
Have a great day and be safe out there.
