RE: A look at Steemit.inc delegation philosophy.
I agree with you and I think certain communities should be considered personally. I don't see why they aren't considered exactly? Not sure if there's an official reason or not..?
But.. I run a relatively small contest. We've had close to 20 entries at times, but.. I've had probably around 10 different people or more tell me things like.. "Your contest is what steemit should be" "I like your contest more than I like steemit" "I woulda quit if it wasn't for your contest" "Your contest helps me keep posting".
And like I said.. We're small. I'm a dolphin with very little SP to go around, if we had delegations or EVEN a really generous whale to help out.. I think it would be incredibly valuable..
If they really care about their platform they should ensure that some of the best communities that bring people in and keep them posting should be able to keep running.
If steemit inc delegated to groups like open mic and darkhorses contest and ours and a few others.. I think it would serve the platform immensely. It would bring a lot of new people in, and it would help with retention a bunch too.
But.. It is what it is I suppose. I'm not holding my breath and I don't expect any help. I just do the best I can cause I believe in it and enjoy it and hope eventually some higher ups will notice and make our contest easier to maintain, and more effective in its reach.
