RE: Spaminator Server and Tech-Only Funding Proposal

in #proposal2 years ago

Hello,

We were wondering why you are down voting our community post. We post once per day. We don't comment spam. We support a small community of posters. We have never powered down. In the past, we used the proceeds of the posts to rent SP to use it to vote on community members' posts. We are currently not renting HP because there is no efficient and easy way to do it. We are hopeful an efficient and easy way will emerge. We used to be @steemiteducation and have encouraged thousands of posts over the past 3+ years.

Oh wow...

If only you are this proactive about your initiative than about downvotes, maybe you could have gotten somewhere?

Copy/pasting the same post for well over a month would get you downvotes.

We have been proactively trying to encourage content creators for over 3 years. We have put in well over 1500 hours during that time. We understand your point of view about the negative aspect of a post like this. But please don't insinuate that we have not put in a tremendous amount of effort trying to help the platforms and content creators. From our point of view, we saw one small post being used as a seed to help many, many others as a worth while trade off. We are just people volunteering our time and thought it would be better spent looking for posts than on posting a new post every day. If you disagree, we respect that. This could have been handled with communication. There was no need for downvotes and blacklists.

That's the lie you tell yourselves.

If you are half serious about your project, you wouldn't settle for copy/paste. The rest are excuses.

If you thought your time was better spent "looking for posts", then you wouldn't repeatedly post and repost the same thing over and over for months.

You have no argument. It's all justifications.

Anyone in the community would agree.

It's common sense what you are doing is dumb. You are not new to the ecosystem. There is no excuse.

We know we are not succeeding... but it is not from lack of effort, indecency, stupidity, selfishness, or evil. Although our community is small, we do have 1253 subscribers (I'm sure that is inflated though) and $664 in pending rewards. The daily post is a tiny portion of what we do. We aren't powering down or selling. We are putting 100% of the proceeds back into the community.

I get that you are used to dealing with scammers, but in this case, you are dealing with some volunteers who are doing their best to help. And we are also very reasonable and willing to listen to your point of view. This doesn't need to be contentious. It is as simple as "I hear your point of view education-hive, but in the current situation, your method is having a negative impact on the platform." and then we say "We had not been thinking of it like that. We are going to try to find a way that has a more positive impact. Thanks for looking out for the platform."

I would only be that nice if you guys were new on the platform.

As for the blacklist, you'd have to figure that out with @hivewatchers.
