An invitation to solid ground

last year

Being a member of both platforms, Whaleshares.io and Smoke.io, the thought of joining forces has come up more than once.

My reason to sign up for Smoke.io was just about becoming a witness. At that time the Smoke.io blockchain was a little short on witnesses, I already had servers running for Whaleshares, it was no problem to help out.

Smoke.io

Smoke.io can easily be described as a one topic platform. If your post is not cannabis or Smoke.io related, it is not appreciated. Nothing wrong with that, it is a niche platform, with potential.

But their are also troubles. Mostly troubles to keep things running. In the last few weeks the front-end has been non-responsive or missing more than once. A little further back the whole chain came to a standstill.

Due to the great work of the witnesses still present, things have been solved. Great job!
But where do you go when it happens again? Reading the messages on Discord, people miss being able to post and some are leaving.

Whaleshares.io

A multi-community platform with a different take on rewards and interaction. The tipping system that has been put in place after suffering from massive spamming and scamming has turned the platform in a community with a positive vibe. There is no flagging. Either you like it, and tip, or you don't like it and move on. Rewards are instant, no stress over strategic rewarding.

What is probably more important, it is a stable blockchain and platform.

So you are suggesting a take-over

Nope, not at all.

I am just inviting you in, to give it a try, to use it as an alternative in case the Smoke.io front-end errors. Providing you with an option to post on both, cannabis related and unrelated topics. Providing an easy way to meet our community members of which more than a few are "fan of the green stuff" as they call it.

A special "pod" has been created already. Feel free to use it.

Yeah.... there is a big problem with flags used for vandettas, spite and vigilanteism...... it needs to be fixed. It does not work. Too much envy and jealousy out there. Flags will destroy any good blogging platform.

·

That is why we removed them. You can either show appreciation, or just let it be. Of course you can leave a negative comment, but no harm is done to anyone's account or earnings.

I should be pulling out the STEEM guns then? I can hardly hide my involvement there 😅 just being an ass... I cross promote like a MF when I get in the mood, right now I’m cross promoting STEEM communities to other STEEM communities.

I have been intending to join since about a year ago just just how would I get access if my account was denied but still when I try create an account says email has been used?

·

Let me know what account name you want to use and I will create it for you, instantly.

And in case you got infected with the witness virus after doing so much hard work to get everything going again. We have room for that too

The one and only @d00k13 as I try lock down that name where ever I can.... never know right?

Dunno about running a witness though, barely manage with smoke as it is 🤦‍♂️

·

That is how fast it can go.

·

·

Can't wait till Stoner gets a similar process setup for Smoke 😅

·
·

·

Added 1 WLS to your account so you can join the smoke.io-pod if you choose to do so.

Excellent 😘

Cross-posting without really being present is what we call billboarding. You can do that. It won't make your account grow big any time soon, unless you invest of course. No one will blame you. They will probably try to get you involved more, but if you decide not to do it, they will let it go.

Engagement is highly appreciated and rewarded. And that is not limited to who you know. Many supportive people reward authors whom they have nothing in common with, but they see them interact with others.

At the moment I think it is fair to say, (meaningful) commenting is even higher valued than posting.

·
·

Can’t really say I’m present anywhere these days 🤦‍♂️ I am that previously engaging guy feeling broken by the ongoing FUD found nearly everywhere!

·
·
·

Let's give it a shot and see how things go.

·

Hey, if you do join up can I make a request? A start to finish set up of your favourite grow tent. I have some t5 sunblaster lights but I am told they are only good for part of the grow and might need to get LEDs or something.

Just a thought.

·
·

😅 that would best be done by someone who finishes what they start 😉 In short with lighting you want blue spectrum for veg and red spectrum for bloom but ima kinda out of the loop on recent equipment... my last grow was pre LED 😱

·
·
·

Hahaha, fair enough. I know I can find it all online but it's nice to talk to folks who are doing it and might as well support the network. It is here solely for that reason.

·
·
·
·

Yep, that is how I feel too. Google is great, but it is nicer to talk to people. Especially the ones who have experience on whatever level.

·
·
·
·

Well don't be afraid of asking questions in a post then, some very knowledgeable people do curation on the regular... maybe they will feel inclined to point you in the right direction 😁

I have been on Whaleshares for years.... I haven’t used it for years.... I am still on Steematron. .... found a really good community over there. Not Cannabis related. But super duper supportive and friendly. And kind. ,,..... Which is nice these days.

·

Just checked your account, March 2019 is the date of your "most recent" post. More than a few things changed since then. You may have to re-learn a thing or two.

The idea is still the same, there is room for everyone. Those who billboard and stay in their own bubble will grow slower than those who engage, read other people's posts, leave meaningful comments. Everyone is free to do their thing though.

·
·

Awesome.... I will go check it out again.

·
·
·

I send you 1 WLS so you can join pods if you want.

This is a great idea. I like the Smoke platform but I am so busy with life and Whaleshares that I don't remember to come by as much as I should. I guess if I smoked myself it would be higher (hehe) on my list of priorities but I like the folks I have met here and would love to see their non-pot lives as well.

Exactly, it can be a lot of fun.
