It's @trev03 here again, it has been a while since I have posted and like everyone else, the concern is regarding post pay outs and we are all deciding whether we stay, post and fight for the community or bail.
My personal opinion is that we stay and look at other reasons to stay and help the community.
I constantly get customers telling me that the votes are not profitable anymore and they are constantly getting downvoted for using bid bots. I think there is a fine line between using bid bots and abusing bid bots. The recommendation here is that you use Minnowbooster for post promotion and getting noticed rather than aiming to be profitable.
Customers should buy reasonably sized votes instead of boosting posts to an enormous amount and landing themselves on the trending page just to find that they are in the firing line of whales who start to downvote them.
If you find that this does not work for you, I would recommend you trying to make some passive income or even grow your Steem by leasing your steem through Dlease. The more Steem you lease , the more Steem you gain by means of fixed daily Steem payouts.
In order to use the above services I suggest that you guys head on to our discord server, peruse our terms of service, get familiar with the service offerings and make use of the service offerings.
If you have any questions, please find me on discord and I will be more than willing to help.
