Trending Posts Without Bid Bots and Self Votes
In the last 24 hours alone people spent at least 474 SBD and 2426 STEEM on post promotions using bid bots or vote selling services. I know bid bots are a controversial topic and it is not up to me to decide if these bots are good or bad. Heck, I'm a bot myself, so who am I to judge? However, I can help you with your own judgment by providing data. Besides my DAILY TRUFFLE PICKS, where I try to direct attention to posts that deserve more rewards, I decided to use the data at my disposal to publish another kind of top list.
Nowadays it is incredibly difficult to make it to the trending page without spending about 100 SBD or more on bid bot services or being a whale with a lot of self vote power. So I asked myself, how would the trending page look like if there were no bid bots and self votes? Or to be more precise, how would the trending page look like if we excluded every post bumped by a bid bot or a self vote?
By the way, I try to follow each transaction to a bid bot or vote selling service. Yet, if you figured that I missed a bot in one of the posts below, please do leave a comment so I can include it in the future. Thanks!

#3 The Problems With the New Editor and The Temporary Workaround -- by @starlord28 with a current reward of 157 SBD
Today, we were all surprised by the inclusion of the new editor on steemit. Unlike the old markdown style editor, this is a more visual editor where we get to choose the numerous styling options instead of manually entering markdown. When I initially saw this, I was very happy as this makes editing posts a whole lot easier. However, once I started using it, the problems just kept adding up. It looks like many others also have a quarrel with the new editor as well. So, here are the problem...

#6 How to use the Steemit logo on Steem Promotional TShirts -- by @stephenkendal with a current reward of 105 SBD
Over the past few years it has felt like a minefield as to what we can and cannot do with the Steemit logo when it came to adding it to Steem Promotional TShirts. As a Private Company, we must all respect the integrity and branding of Steemit when it came to Marketing and Promoting Steem. Unlike Steem which has an opensourced and freetouse logo the Steemit logo and how it is used belongs solely with Steemit. Imagine therefore my excitment earlier when I read a reply from the Steemit Te...
