Some weeks ago I started working on an issue that could hinder Steem growth: a lacking sense of community. All hope was not lost as I stumble upon some community here and there. This give me an idea: how can I help people participating in communities, without requiring things like Smart Media Tokens (I am not a big fan but anyway). I am working on a service to make people support their communities by using their voting power. I don't want to see another split like the russian community and Golos.
For now though, I am still l working on the code and I will release it as soon as it not that quick and dirty. In the mean time I decide to support the communities I usually join.
A mecene bot
My mecene (French for sponsor/donator historically for art) bot has been running on @cryptohazard for a while. I am migrating it to @lablockchain to ease my work. I also, using the low steem price, spend a bit of money to rent some SP. Using all my SP from my accounts too, I will have 750 SP devoted to my mecene activities. I don't expect any ROI.
#fr for the French community. I am impressed by how much we grew. This way I might see more and more content in French.
#gridcoin is a pretty active community here(huge thanks to @dutch, @vortac, @sc-steemit, ....). I am still not contributed to the research mining yet but that way it will still be in my mind. I will do an article at some point about the NFS project and its use to cryptography, but that is for another time.
For women's day international , I supported the tag women and womensday. I will keep supporting it but manually.
So if you write on the aforementioned tags, you should get a 7% vote from @lablockchain. If I do it manually, it should be at least 17%. I check every now and then the content but no blacklist for now. The code will be released through utopian one day.
You want to support me?
Keep interacting and writing awesome pieces. We need a better sense of community and less paid bots.
You can also vote for me as a witness( @cryptohazard) too :-D. That would be cool to get some votes and make me create more blocks. I like that can focus on building things, interacting with people and not constantly look at the price.
