@trumpman @drutter, people complain Steemit doesn’t communicate but when they do they get trolled, I do agree it shouldn’t have been pinned but in reality steemit.com is owned by Steemit Inc so they have a right to pin their own communication. Look at least they are trying, I appreciated the sentiment, most companies that care wish their customers a happy holidays.

·

I agree that we should all come together on this wonderful holiday. I believe it could all be part of the Festivus holiday where you "air your grievances". I myself think that we need to all come together so, from the deepest part of my soul, Bill, myself, and horse face would like to wish you all a

No, not at all. I am still out shopping for Bill though. I asked him what he wanted for Christmas and He just said HOE, HOE, HOE so I think that means he wants a Santa outfit.

Bernie told me Bill was looking for this kind of hoe.

Do you see any meaningful communication? All I see is blah blah blah with no action while they continue dumping their stake. To any logical person, this " communication" looks as a last ditch effort to not cause panic as they exit with the maximal possible profits. Meanwhile Ned has dissappeared after breaking his scheduled appearance TWICE. Trolling is the least their "communication" deserves.

I have had many people not show up for important meetings and court appearances. Most of the time they have committed suicide though. It is very strange how that keeps happening.

You didn't asked me, but wishing Happy Holidays near (a few days before) Christmas (on 2018.12.21) is meaningful enough for me.
I am not a staff member of Steemit or anything similar, but the payout is declined on this blog post. And as I see, the payout is declined under every post of @steemitblog.
So what are they taking here? Why are you talking about "exit"?

·
·
·

You have no clue, do you? @steemitblog is one of many unnumbered accounts STINC owns. They flood the market with their ninja mined stake for the past few years.

Yeah, 70% of them got laid off. Happy Christmas from like 3 people who still work there.

·
·
·

I bet the dollars from the millions of steem they sell every month for the past two years ( without having anything tangible to show for) on the exchanges are not "declined" though.

·
·

I think this is a very positive greeting!!!
Nothing wrong with it and a whole bunch right with it, in my opinion!!!

·

right on @thecryptodrive ,i think they should pin as long as its not "daily" updates. I see a lot of complaining but i don't see a lot of onboarding major accounts by people who claim to have the marketing skills.
But well, people complain on a downvote on stackoverflow and spend 30 minutes explaining how to pose a question instead of using their supergeekbrain to answer it in 5 seconds.
As do the utopian "rules" on how-to-tutorial
humans ...
they can't be helped
steemit could have very well thrown in the towel by now, scrapped the money and left everyone to dry, filed for bankrupcy and get zero liability on anything.

But they don't , so i do agree, doubleplus points for not caving in and swimming upstream in the middle of a shitstorm on planet Crypton.

I betcha fiver if the price were to rise to $10 again people would still find something to complain about.

i'd say just keep going and whoever doesn't like it : there's always fakebook, you get an unlimited number of likes per day so people just post to watch their own feeds mostly imo.
And more : other than steem, flixxo and (if they come through) BAT there's none where you can step-in for free. I don't know of any fora like this running off of eos or tron or vitalsky-coin , ... maybe they exist but i'm sure the ETH won't come for free daily like it does here.

but it doesnt ??!?
orley so what do you call 10 100% votes a day ? those are vests in steem you give away and get for free, dearies.
I'm in to the very end but i hope this is just a bump and the phoenix rises stronger.

... i usually don't even react to all that crud because i dont know what people who are ranting actually accomplish for the chain themselves but in this case

well i didnt either, i just wanted to say i still believe and i agree with what you say here.

Steem is a decentralized blockchain and no one should have the authority to pin posts and have any kind of advantage.

steemit.com however is a centralized interface, and they can do whatever suite them, and i for one kinda neutral about this, i don't like it neither dislike it, but if you don't like it, you can use another interface.

·
·

...or we can complain about them making user-hostile product decisions. “You can use something else” does not make one immune from critical feedback.

forced

·
·

its their company ... steemit is not the blockchain , you are posting and reading on the application maintained by steemit.inc , they have every right in the world to pin whatever they like on top or bottom . If i were to complain about anything its why they're not lobbying for ad-money but i can think of a reason b/c i have the same problem : independence, they dont wanna leash themselves to having to explain yearly to the board.

No one's stopping anyone from writing their own program to run off of steemchain. #Busy did it , #musing did it , #steemstem did it ... anyone who wants can write their own pin-free application but as the americans say
"those who can, DO ... etc..."

happy merry

technically that's what i said,, please read again

i stand corrected :)

I love how most of the flags come from leechers of the platform like high level users with barely more than 500 sp or users heavily relying on bid bots to get votes. Protip:It's Christmas guys, go suck some more whale dick and maybe you will get some more generous votes.

·
·

Really rich, coming from the guy who upvotes his own comments. I flagged because your little rant doesn't contribute anything. Sure, you can have an opinion about Steemit pinning this message, but you don't have to be a dick about it. Merry Christmas to you too.

·
·

Flag removed since you are not of the leechers I mentioned. My apologies. But still, yes I can.

·

Same here, but because it's Christmas :P

Edit: And because your self-vote percentage actually isn't bad, so I don't mind that you upvote some of your comments.

At Christmas time do they have eggnog flavored bukkake? Also any advice on getting rid of stretch marks on my cheeks from the whale dicks? Maybe coco butter? It worked on my wife's stretch marks after having the baby.

·

Have you tried to use other dapps instead of Steemit.com? On @partiko, @esteem-app Surfer, @steempeak etc. you wont see non-sense like this pinned.

IMO it's better than complaining about something you dont want to see anyway. It's not like Steemit.com has the best User Experience too.

·

It's unclear why this shitpost-by-definition needed to be pinned and all users notified about it. Spam shouldn't be encouraged.

·
·
·
·
·
·

You are using their front-end.

·
·

yeah you are right. Which I guess makes me a customer. Last time I checked, customers do have the right to complain :)

·
·
·

Customer that never buys shit.

·
·
·
·

"Customer that never buys shit."
He (and all of us) are buying 100% of what they're offering for sale.
Claiming we don't have the right to complain is indefensible. The site is profiting off us, the content-creators. If we aren't happy, we'll take our investment (and content) elsewhere. The site should care if/when the content-creators aren't happy. Please stop trying to silence people's opinions just because you disagree.

·
·
·
·
·

"Customer that never buys shit."

Yes he has no stake in Steemit, none of us do.

He (and all of us) are buying 100% of what they're offering for sale.

Please elaborate.

The site is profiting off us, the content-creators.

How? There are no ads, no revenue being created off of the users using Steemit.com daily. Not only do you (and most of us) get the account created for free, you're also surfing the blockchain and hosting images for free. They aren't packaging your activity and selling it to the highest bidders like most other social media platforms do, cause it's there for free to grab on the blockchain.

Sure you can say "their stake would not be worth as much if the users weren't here" but that brings in a lot of other factors.

Again, I'm not one to try and silence when users of a site want to complain about things, but his tone sounded a lot more like an idiot acting out on being mad cause things weren't delivered in time and it may have effected the value of his investment.

Please stop trying to silence people's opinion of other people's "opinions" because you disagree with me disagreeing with theirs.

Using words such as "silencing" and "censorship" on a blockchain is equally as dumb.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Nobody claimed the users of Steemit are OWNERS of Steemit, with stake in the company. Silly strawman.
You're trying to discredit someone's opinion because you disagree with it. His opinion is valid, as are all user complaints here. If the site wants to know how to provide best for its users, it will listen to complaints. People aren't complaining because they hate the site and want to destroy it. They're complaining because they love the site, see its potential, and want things to improve.
You coming along trying to claim people have no right to complain about Steemit's problems is nasty. They have every right, and Steemit's ownership would be wise to ignore you, and hear the complaints.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Oh for sure, I think it may be too late to complain about this particular site, though. And if he used another one he wouldn't have to get annoyed by the pin.

But typing a comment like that and getting a big account to upvote your own comment is much more edgy. Look at all the controversy and attention he got, woo!

·
·
·
·

I guess we have no right to complain about Facebook? ;)

·
·
·
·
·

I'm just saying the front-end doesn't even take any beneficiaries so you're not really paying for anything.

·
·
·
·
·
·

True. But like many other 21st century products, the most important resource we invest in it is our time.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Yeah but it's not like they are abusing your time in ways that other platforms do, such as feeding you ads constantly or selling your activity of the time you've spent.

So who 'pissed in your cornflakes' this morning?
Man, never saw people get so upset because someone wished them Merry Christmas!
Come on, man!

·

Merry Christmas to everyone! I love you all, I know a dog that would appreciate those cornflakes! But I can't tell you the other thing I once saw him eat!!!

·

Maybe they should have said "Happy Festivus" and that would have been more acceptable to them. Festivus - the Holiday for the Rest of Us. heh heh heh

·
·

Go suck ned's dick

Well even spam can sometimes have a positive message:

We hope you are able to enjoy this time with friends and family

Maybe we all should have a break from the online addiction and the Steem drama.
If we are ABLE ...

If only this spam could stay pinned until the new year! That would really just top things off.

·

I second this motion.

Steemit needs to fix their shit..... This website sucks.

Happy holidays ! 😁 with love and all best wishes to everyone 😁

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone

Excellent commentary!!

Since you have stopped creating free accounts:

You should at least update the steem.io webpage to remove the free account creation option. I'm sure there are a bunch wanting to sign up that are on backlog.

·
  ·  작년

Steemit is still creating accounts, just not as many:

from @penguinpablo's daily posts.

Last time I told a user from another platform to check out Steem he got his account created the same day through Steemit.

I'm sure there are a bunch wanting to sign up that are on backlog.

This seems like you are guessing.

·
·

@acidyo - there used to be about 5000 people getting through the each 2 weeks or so. Now there are 20 a day or so through steem. This means maybe 300 in the same 2 weeks.

Therefore, somewhere in the neighborhood of 10-15K people have applied but are not processed in the last month.

But already the push through rate was falling off in the last months, so there are probably even more unprocessed applications than that.

Why has the number dropped off so hard?

The assumption is that the person who used to do this every two weeks was fired.

Who at steem(it) is approving the 20 entries per day and do they need some help?

  • There are steemians who would volunteer to help so the new people can get in.

  • We have others who are delegating sp to new people so they can work around the rc problem when they get here. (@thedarkhorse @crypto.piotr are two who come to mind.) I am sure others would step in if more people got approved.

  • A possible alternative would be to partially farm out the sign ups to the other dapps that are already approving new members and let them get the manpower. This is from a couple of days ago and steemhunt is usually here too.

holy fuck2.PNG

Below is the "State of the dapps" report for "social" and sorted by number of people. esteem is missing but normally has about 600.

state of the dapps rankings2.PNG

We really need those people outside the gate to get in here.

You say:

Last time I told a user from another platform to check out Steem he got his account created the same day through Steemit.

I have gotten about 20 sign ups since June 2017 - all personal friends and content creators. It used to take a few days through steemit. The last one was in October 2018 and it took about 10 days for her to get approved. Before that, in about July, 2018 it took 3 weeks for another friend to get in. I know this because he emailed me constantly wondering what could possibly take so long.

And for this part of his statement, and your reply to @socky -

fucking with us.PNG

What would be your guess for the backlog of people wanting to get in here - if any?

@pennsif @paulag @abh12345 @penguinpablo @arcange @kpine @taskmaster4450 @ura-soul @exyle @andrarchy
tagging because they know and work with the numbers.

I am a weight loss coach, not a blockchain/crypto/steem pro.

·
·
·

I have no idea of the backlog but typically people just go away and don't return - so the backlog fades into nothing after not so long. It is likely that a missing bi-weekly peak on that graph means there are 1000s of accounts waiting in the queue. I have yet to hear of what checks are being done to justify such a waiting period, but I personally doubt that such a period is really needed and I also doubt that the checks are particularly reliable.

Anyone wanting to improve the situation can check out @steempassport and offer support to create the various systems that will resolve these issues once and for all.

·
·
·
·

I looked and your @steempassport idea is wonderful. But people who are here new are also dropping off the cliff. There are maybe 6000 here if this state of the daaps thing is correct and the numbers are mainly dropping. So how long can we survive with no new people? We had about 60K people last year at this time and I know that was all about the price, but still.

·
·
·
·

I just mailed state of the dapps and they said they get their data from the real wolf's app. I think the issue is that the data on that site is specifically targeting users on steemit.com as opposed to considering all steem traffic together. However, it's pretty clear that the data is not accurate, since some of the dapps for steem are listed as having very few - such as 20 for steeve. I'm pretty sure steeve has more than 20 users.

·

·

Steeve? To be honest, I'm hearing it for the first time!

·

I use @steeveapp almost everyday @sathyasankar ura-soul.

·
·
·

I don't know where state of the dapps gets it's user figures from but my site steemocean.com shows around 55000 active voters over a 5 day period.

·
·
·
·
·
·
  ·  작년

most are those are not active users @ura-soul but they are trailvoters who left accounts on active trails. we have many many of these on our trail, no way to remove them either.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I'd be surprised if 50,000 of them were all just autovoting accounts!

@penguinpablo's post from today shows that there are about 50000 posts being made per day currently. I doubt that the average number of posts made by an account is 10 per day. Maybe someone has 3rd party data to show exactly how many accounts are actively posting.. I just looked through a bunch of different apps from steemprojects and couldn't find that relatively simple data.

·
·
·

Yea, it’s a shame. I only know of a few waiting in vain for a free account in the past weeks.

·
·

Maybe tell them to try at @steemmonsters or @partiko or one of the others so they can get in.

·

Yes, will do, thank you! Good tip. :)

There is a backlog. I have friends that signed up about a month ago and they still haven't received their free accounts yet.

@acidyo and @inertia It was me that first brought this all to light and I am not spreading fake news, i'm trying to be proactive and have action taken by raising it as a red flag before it does become a problem.

Since the lay offs the accounts created by steemit inc has dropped considerably. Its not that long ago so before it becomes as problem, don't you think we should try and address it? From the post I did on it the other day, which is not fake news as I pulled the data myself, the comments suggest this is a serious problem and people are waiting too long and losing interest.

With the drop in crypto prices, im sure there has been a drop in demand, however looking at the % accounts created by steemit inc, it was over 80% in Oct and Nov. its no where near that now. working back from these figure I would guesstimate a backlog of about 1100 accounts.

This has been noticed very fast, and we have an opportunity to make sure it does not become a problem. I think removing the sign up for free is not a bad idea. Lets not give potential new users or investors the wrong impression and leave them wondering why they haven't got their accounts, lets be proactive, and hopefully we can also help reduce the pressure from steemit inc so they can focus on what they need to do.

I would love to see other dapps take charge on setting up free accounts, but we would need steem.com to link to these and its a big undertaking too for the apps.

@fitinfun that was a great reply :-)

·
·
·

I don't really care. You sign up for a free account, you get what you pay for. Dapps are taking charge, they just aren't doing it for free. Apparently doing so is unsustainable and problematic.

I will not get worked up over free account creation. There's a lot of talk in the dapps community over the idea of creating free off-chain accounts and only putting them on-chain once they prove their worth. I like that idea much more.

As for the button, yeah, it'd be nice if it was removed or was changed to "Free, with Unspecified Delay." But why now? Because of missing spikes on some report? We don't even know what those spikes really were.

·
·

You sign up for a free account, you get what you pay for.

As if half of the world would be waiting to join Steem(it). Most of the potential new users must be convinced first to join. Often I say: "Why not just try it out as it is for free anyway?" Most of the users I brought to Steem(it) wouldn't have joined if the first thing they had to do is to pay for an account.

·
·
·
·

I agree with you, I have a difficult time getting friends to try Steemit. I have one friend that is a very active poster on Facebook, I have tried several times to just get Her to give Steemit a try. She would add so much with her posting! Put a cost on accounts and limit her ability to interact with limited RC she would just laugh at Steemit. We need to give the people what they want, a social platform that welcomes people not a good old boys club that closes the door to new people!

Absolutely @melbookermusic, there are too many technically skilled and not enough average posters. Most people just want it to be simple, and to be able to post. Tell a newbie he can’t post anymore because his RC is low and he will probably just go back to Facebook

Yes, indeed, we are just too arrogant to believe that people would need us (need STEEM). No, we need them! Thus we have to make it as easy and pleasant as possible for them instead to expect a lot of efforts from potential new users. :)

·
·
·
·
  ·  작년

You sign up for a free account, you get what you pay for.

I have to admit, I agree with this.

However, personally, I do care. I feel that some of these paid account creation options only allow cryptocurrency as payment. For many, the STEEM is a gateway for those that don't know anything about cryptocurrency to eventually becoming a cryptocurrency user. Without the free account option, we shut down this gateway for people to learn or even people that only want to uses STEEM purely for the social media aspect.

The off-chain account creation concept may very well be a good alternative solution.

I believe we should remove user onboarding hurdles, not create new ones.

My bad @socky . I am sorry that people believe I am your imaginary friend. For the record @socky did not have me upvote him or anything.

no hugs for me ? :(

·

I expected you to not only have fake followers.

·
·

Is it time to be proactive again?

·
·

I guess @socky's point is steemit has never newly approved since a month ago, which is quite unusual (maybe for the first time this year? not sure though). Anyway, it's not like steemit approves everyday, they only approve every 2-3 weeks, which is clearly shown as big spikes. That's why some people got their account within a day if they're lucky to apply near the next approval day. I guess currently steemit doesn't wanna (or cannot) spend money for verification temporarily.

Hope steemit can get back to normal soon. Happy Holidays!

·
·
·

It was explained to me once that the reason why they don't just allow all the accounts is because the Steem developers and witnesses are afraid of "Sybil Attacks", which is basically when someone gets a bunch of different accounts to abuse (they pretend like they're a bunch of different people to be more influential, or to be able to vote more for themselves).

But honestly, I think they should be more afraid of the paid-vote bots. The paid voting system makes it nearly impossible for new users to grow. IMHO the Steem devs and witnesses should seriously re-examine their priorities.

When I told them that, they basically said they didn't care about my concerns because other people had invested more into Steem than I did, and those people's opinions were more valuable to the SteemIt leadership than mine were.

It's like they don't care if Steem goes down in flames as long as they get their short-term kickbacks.

I'm not guessing. Here are examples from Steem.chat

Perhaps they just skipped one of their cycles and the next batch of accounts will be approved any day now. @exyle is also reporting that Steemit Inc has stopped creating free accounts. @penguinpablo publishes the data. The batch processing of new free accounts are not being performed.

People are asking about what is going on with the approval process on Steem.chat

I'm not trying to spread fake news. I would like for Steemit Inc to at least make an effort to keep people from getting frustrated and giving up before they have had a chance to try STEEM.

·
·
·

Here ya go @inertia . Is it still fake news? I don't know. You guys are both smarter than me. I find that @socky is pretty spot on with stuff so I will trust he has done his research. If it is fake news then I am sure steemitblog will be able to address it quickly and thoroughly.

I didn't mean to start a disagreement. I'm just pointing out something that should be addressed. I believe Steemit Inc provides notifications that accounts have been approved/verified by email or text. It seems like they should send out a message to those in the queue that they have stopped creating accounts and provide a list of other account creation options. The free account option on the website should be taken down.

thanks, I think it is good and bad at the same time. On one hand, this drives others to create accounts which improves decentralization. On the other hand, people who don't know better are left waiting for an unknown amount of time which doesn't provide a good experience. I think the website should at least reflect that free accounts are no longer available or on some sort of moratorium.

"I think the website should at least reflect that free accounts are no longer available or on some sort of moratorium."
Yes, I agree. And while we're at it, the entire FAQ (and the rest of the site) is about 2 years out-of-date. None of the info given to new users is current or correct.

·
·
·

Good point. I've had issues with their FAQ page long ago about being out of date and inaccurate.

·

Hello @socky and the other steemians. I have seen these articles late, but I think that my analysis recently could be a good reference for this issue.

STEEM status and some doubt based on account creation statistics

The percentage of strange accounts that have been created since June this year, but have no signs of use at all, increased sharply. Maybe this fact is partly related to the issues you raised.

Enjoy Christmas and New Year.

just made some xmas crypto giveaway

just please whatever you do just be transparent with us... the LAST thing I want to see when I want to sign onto steemit is that the site is no longer available

Check out some of the other front-ends, many are much better imo.

are there any you suggest? steampeak looks nice

the steeve interface looks modern and slick, I'm also looking forward to their AI curation recommendation development.

·
·
·

At the moment it seems it is having the least amount of trouble with the API too. On Busy, I am getting a lot of weird.

·
·

steempeak is great; have been using ot for the last 2 months.

·
·
·

Esteem Surfer, Steempeak, Steeve, Partiko, 1ramp, etc.. these at least are the word based steem dapps.. there are more like Dtube, Dsound, Steemhunt, Musing etc that uses Steem as a metadatabase, that'll give you a different experience.

Steem != Steemit.com

Why do you have such thin skin, @reseller?

Yes, your self-voted comment appeared sycophantic and it received multiple flags from multiple users. Not sure exactly what you were going for. Your use of the mute button tells me you are not one that likes to be critiqued. Noted.

Even so, I made an attempt to reach out to you in a civil way prior to coming across your comment to discuss a matter that is important to the chain.

But, it seemed more useful to ignore that and respond to the meme that didn't paint you in the most pleasant light. That's unfortunate.

@steemitblog,
Happy Holidays and hope 2019 will be the year of STEEM!

Cheers~

Well sometimes appears to be not so pleasant to show up as a boss in front of the volunteers...
MANY of them do not need a leader in the first place! ;)
I mean X-mas is not about the very wishing... and it's fake till it reaches certain point of good feeling about it! ;)
Take care! ;)

This is nice communication thank you and same to you! This kind of thoughtful communication is great and goes a long way to improve user sentiment.

This strikes me as overuse of the pinned post function.

I was just thinking why did they pin this? To spread cheer? I don't know.

Happy holidays to the OG's and semi-OG's who are sticking through this time of "turmoil" in the Steemit community. We've been listed top 10 by china this past week. Keep in mind Steemit is in beta, it takes time and we will all see that for those of us who stick around through the hard times!

Thanks, Happy Holidays to the team! I look forward to great things all throughout 2019. Keep cranking out good stuff and I'll keep using and promoting the platform. Cheers!

·

What good stuff did they crank out in 2018, care to name anything? Even one single thing? Come on, name something, if you can.
Keep self-voting your way to prosperity though LOL

Should probably start accepting post rewards to help the business grow....

THANK YOU AND WISHING YOU ALL HAPPY X-MAS

I have one single comment please - As The RC is now the sole rule in controlling our actions on the steemit platform, kindly, can you add the value of the RC in the ain wallet page for each user that will be more proffissional view rather than going to the third parties to check our RC each time the pop up is appearing to stop our actions on steemit....

happy new year and happy x-mas to all...

Happy Holidays Steemit Team!

No complaints from me, no questions from me ... just wish Steemit and all Steemers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2019 where Steemit and the Steem may grow :)

Happy New Year to The Steemit Team

Have a good holidays guys.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas! Let's see what 2019 brings. By the way, for those who don't want to see pinned messages, eSteem doesn't show pinned messages.

Steem helped my family in a lot of ways. I am from a developing country and yet I invested whatever I could because I believe in steem. I really hope the price will rise and be stable and also hope that steemit continues to flourish and help thousands like me.

It will for sure.

I was not active for many months for several health problems, even though i am the old user here.
I would like to take this post as welcome note and ill try to be more active from 2019. thanks :) Happy holidays everyone.

You should start distributing your votes to steemians just like busy.org does, they have the right to be rewarded for all their considerable efforts and for staying here despite all the bad news we got in 2018. It's the least you can do as Christmas presents...

Happy Christmas to all the team. Hope Ned gives you some time off to enjoy it so you are refreshed for next year.

Merry Christmas, I Love It @mmmmkkkk

Thanks to the whole family of steemit for their wishes it was a year of hard work the next one will be better safe than if a Christmas hug and happy new year from Venezuela.

Felices Pascuas, conejitos.

Merry Christmas to all

Thanks for the spam @ned!

And a Happy Holiday to you.

Happy holidays everyone, hope all of you have a great time celebrating.

Can you un-pin this please? 9 days is a bit much don't you think?

Would love it if you guys actually curated and pin good content to the feed like you did with this.

All I want for christmas is for you to stop using that pinned post nonsense unless it's something really important.

Thank you very much, I also wish you a Merry Christmas to all the members of the community... Happy New Year 2019 to my friends of Steemit

Thank you so much guys. Happy holidays. Also I don't know if you saw that steemit is nominated as best project on the Crypto Influencers awards 2019...you guys might want to take a look and maybe ask for the community to vote. 😉 Have a couple of posts on my profile about it if you need a direct link to check that out 😉☑️

And i will be very excited to hear new developments this coming year.

Goodluck to us.

GREAT post, thank you so much for this. Warms our hearts, thank you again for being so genuine and original with your holiday post!

useless message, trying to entertain at the time of destruction. fix prices, don't make weird ideas.

Happy Holidays to the Steemit team!

Happy holidays to everyone. 2018 was a year to forget, but only because of how great the run-up at the end of 2017 happened to be. It happened before and it could happen again

Merry, merry christmas Steemit family. Thank you Steemit platform for being a part of my life. I love Steemit!

To Everyone here, "may your blessings be many and your troubles slight.
May your wishes all have happy endings and all of your days be bright" Merry Christmas to all, and to all a very good life!

Yes! It's indeed a peaceful holiday. But that quickly reminds me as I remember that this is the month where people spend cash alot and because they visit their family and their relatives they need to spend.
My question is to us steemians.
What will be the fate of steem this month because sure everyone will sell than buy.
Though for good investors and good experienced users. This is the time to buy.

Thanks! For you too <3

Hoping 2019 will be a steemit year of success, gaining much grounds in terms of cryptocurrency..I believe it possible..

Thanks Steemit for all the opportunities you have brought me in the past year. What an exciting adventure it has been!

Thanks for the holiday wishes. Cheers!

Merry Christmas!! Only 10 months until the season returns... maybe we should just keep this post pinned?

Thank you Steemit and back atcha! Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season.

They should delegate a considerable amount of steem power to steem monster, what that game is bringing to the community is unprecedented,It really is something important. !monster

do u have any idea how much money steem monsters has already made, versus its outgoings?

did u know steem monsters paid creators from fiver, and NOT the people from steem?
$5 per monster apparently. and made $300,000 in the first month.

fuck steem monsters.

No, they should stop delegating their ninja-mined stake that dilutes all other user influence.

Actually the ninja-mine itself was the mistake. If they didn't ninja-mine, the state of steem would be so much different today :)
