RE: Is There Any Room For Short Content On Steemit?
A few things.
- Flagging is a big deal around here. You may find yourself thankful to the flaggers because a few weeks from now this controversy will double the number of reads your content gets.
- You're funny. I'm still snickering from you saying it was fun for teamsteem to show up to the steem growth forum drunk and naked.
- Short content has a place, but it has to provide value to the platform, and right now the value to the platform that many whales are looking at is post views.
4.Self voting is allowed.
5.Flagging is allowed.
I think you have every right to upvote your own posts. I think whales have every right to downvote if they don't think it brings enough value. My suggestion for right now is upvote yourself less.
Find the point where it's the most you can make and still under the radar. While doing that grow an audince on Traf and as it grows increase the amount you self vote. If you're bringing people here with your one liners and funny comments they aren't going to give a shit. If you're basically making jokes to yourself and upvoting them for 30 each 8 times a day you're gonna get flagged as long as the view count is low.
You're not the only investor. They want to see a return too. They fear that your self voting behavior on low view posts are going to hurt the reward pool and ecosystem. If they were getting 1k views it wouldn't be an issue.
It would seem you're not quite producing enough value on your smurf account to satisfy the whales. Bring in a load of people with your constant stream of funny and this will vanish. In the meantime I'll stick around and start sharing sharing some of the best ones to help get you an audience on your smurf.
Chin up, make some jokes, grow an audience on traf, and you'll be in the clear I think. Capitalize on the flags while the issue is hot and enjoy some easy press. Just don't full implosion over it.
