It has been some two days for Steem! I am sure everyone already heard what is happening, saw posts asking for witness votes, people resigning their positions. It was really hard to miss those. And it all started when I wasn't even home. We decided to go to check on the spring flowers in one of my favourite spots. Well... it is not my favourite spot anymore. They cut down all the bushes and grasses around leaving just the trees and some little flowers here and there. It was such a nice, wild place and now it looks like a gigantic lawn...
Preventive measures (this is so on top now!) - there has been a lot of fires around during the summer and this place also burned two years ago. So cutting down the small, dry and flammable plants should help.
But it is just so empty now! I saw those lupines growing in few places and those are basically the tallest plants (besides the trees) now. Gorgeous yellow colour!
Back to Steem - as I have seen some questions on who to vote and where, I wanted to cover some basics. Now those of you that didn't vote because of those reasons, you can do it now.
I'll try to keep it short and simple.
How to tell who to vote?
Well... many of you will know the names of the witnesses.
But in case you don't and want to make sure, go to https://steemian.info/witnesses where you will have a list of all the witnesses.
Steemit witnesses are marked in blue colour, Tron witness servers are in red.
Also, if you look on the right column, all Tron witnesses run version 0.22.5. They also have no avatars, no posts on Steemit and have very little votes.
So of course we all encourage to vote Steemit witnesses. There is currently 7 of them on top top 20. We need to make sure they stay there.
How to vote?
Go to https://steemitwallet.com/~witnesses and pick the names. It will ask you for you Active posting key, apptove the vote with it and thats done.
You can also do it via Steempeak if that is what you are using https://steempeak.com/witnesses.
Or via https://steemworld.org. You can find the wintness list in the last Tools tab.
Every single vote counts!
A lot has happened and keeping track on top of it all is exhausting. It is not over, but I will resume my normal activities tomorrow (I will try at least).
In the meantime join PAL server on Discord. For the past two days at 5 pm UTC they have been hosting discussions about what is happening and how to solve it. There is gonna be one tomorrow as well. Join, listen, voice your opinion if you want to.
