RE: Progress being made
You got off on the wrong foot. You bought your way into the community, and promptly started stomping all over everyone who built it. Your power grab for sock puppet witnesses was reprehensible. It may not be too late to clean up the mess you made, but you'll need to act fast, or the curators, content creators, and developers who actually give the blockchain value will jump ship. The ball is in your court. You could start by ending the witness tampering, but until we have some assurances that it won't happen again, you will always be viewed as a usurper instead of a developer for our community.
