Hello 🐝lovely🐝bees🐝! It’s Wednesday 16th September 2020! Happy Hump Day!

Yesterday, I spent much of the day enjoying the weather, walking the dogs, Hiving and felting.

I made this wizard and this tiny sheep (will probably be a keyring):

Just before going to bed I saw this proposal from @blocktrades. I haven’t had a chance to read all the comments and answers yet, so maybe my comments below have already been addressed.

I have to say I wasn’t a big fan of the change of the curation levels from 75/25 (in favour of authors) to 50/50.

But... we were promised that this would attract investors and that this was a good thing. Well, apparently this isn’t the case. Any investment we have had (not sure if we have data to show increase in investment - if any - can be linked to the changes?) has been a bad thing. It has caused an increase in inflation, apparently.

And now, if this proposal is to believed, investors are both having to work too hard to earn their money and at the same time are being rewarded too much for working so hard!

The proposal seems to be taking rewards from the curators but not giving them back to authors… where does the missing rewards go? My money would be into the pockets of the people running Hive behind the scenes. But maybe I need to take my tin hat off?

Hive is supposed to be a blogging platform. Rewards are a part of that. Whilst having an impact on Spam, the last tinkering with the curation curve also resulted in massive damage to engagment (incentives to reward comments resulted in fewer comments). To say that this proposal will not impact engagement and rewards is frankly bollocks.

Anyway, those are my thoughts.

Let me know what your plans are!

I hope you are all well and keeping safe.

I have done some Hive curation this morning, and will be doing more work on Hive later.

Let me know what you are up to!

I hope you guys have a wonderful day.

Stay cool, everyone.

Be fantabulous! #BeHIVE!

Wow! You made a wizard!! How about Harry Potter?! LoL
I think you could create a whole set of characters for a new computer game!!

The more they meddled with the Hive ecosystem, the more unexpected outcome there would be. They cannot completely control complex social system!

Ha ha ha! I'll have a think about it! I made the cat yesterday so check out today's post (will be publishing that in a while.)

Have a great day!
