The "communities" scam

in hive-174578 •  8 months ago  (edited)

Is it just me or does anyone else think "communities" was a scam towards anyone who ever spent steem on tribe tokens?

in your face

It's like "oh you wanted a place for your steem-engine community and you paid a lot of steem for it? too bad" and "you thought palnet was a good long-term investment? suprise! haha".

The only thing this "feature" did was make the community even more segregated. Even the website is more confusing than ever. I know the heads in charge of steem are generally fucking stupid and mediocre, but this is still baffling.

Looking at this new site design, one can only conclude they're making things even worse (which is hard) everytime they actually try improving it.

You know, no matter how hard we try to save steem, we can never achieve something that surpasses all of the shit the powerheads do that end up making steem stink.

So what can we do except stop committing anything to steem? I mean, we can still go about our regular business of posting, commenting and upvoting. But please, never power up.

communities recap

Communities as a native steemit frontend feature kills steem-engine tribes.

They do what steem-engine tribes did, so every tribe token is useless since the whole reason you got into a tribe was for visibility. Now if you want visibility, tribes is a crappy way to try getting some. Instead, post into a popular community related to the theme of your post - for free.

We use steem power in these communities, not tribe tokens, so when they are so much better than tribe tokens, who cares about buying them anymore? Why would I buy, say, battle or steemace tokens when I can just post to @voxmortis' community?

Just remember the shill they were pushing around that time, where are they gone? One thing to be learnt from this, don't believe anything other say here no matter who he/she is.

Have to agree, the new website layout is just super confusing with all the different tabs and options.

Just wait for SMT. You'll lose even more steem, hehe.

Maybe you are right.

Mostly true.
Try to use Steempeak instead fo the steemit website. It is easier to manage your communities.

Yes most Tribe tokens on Steem-engine are worthless. Remember Steem-engine is just a side-chain project and they can run away with the funds at any time.

However there are a few tokens that are trying to have a purpose. Some are investment tokens that earn you rewards and upvotes. Some like BATTLE are now being used in the RADAQUEST mini-game and you can win prizes.

DEC - still let's you buy Splinterlands cards.
SIM - let's you buy Steemcity cards and play

So yes 99% percent are worthless but a small few have a purpose and the community around them is growing that purpose. Also sending BEER to people in the comments is fun.

Basically the Steem-Engine used the delay of communities to line their pockets. But don't call of them SCAMs ! some of the people behind the communities are trying like SteemLEO but then you have STEEMACE that did Holybread and abandoned the community.

So like i said your mostly correct.

I'm saying steemit's communities is the scam, not tribes, though!

Oh. 🤦‍♂️
